So I decided to try the online dating thing again. Having been a recent victim of a online dating scam, I feel I am more prepared and know what to look for. I have posted a few of my own stories on this site - Steve Vig: Oil Rig Engineer and Sharon Henson, My Story.
I will never be taken for a victim again. His user name on Match.com is HappyFace. Says he is from Sherwood, Oregon. Worked for BP Oil & Gas Company but retired three years ago. He is now self employed and still works for oil companies.
He emailed me a few times, and says his name is Tim Vassallo but his email address is;
His email was so familiar. Wife cheated on him, and they are now divorced. He has two small sons who live with their mother. He wanted to know what I wanted in a relationship. He said he believed that true love meant you were willing to put the one you loved before yourself and do whatever they needed and did I agree.
That is just a way to know if you are willing to send them money when they need it. I called him out in my last email to him. Wanted to know why his last name is Vassallo but his email looks like his last name is Marsh. I asked him where they all come from and why not get a real job and leave lonely women, who just want to be loved, alone and not steal their hearts and money. I never heard from him again. Just wanted to share his pictures and let others know.
