Morrison Murrell BP Oil and Gas Oil Rig Contractor
Stolen Image of Innocent Man Used by Nigerian Scammers
Morrison Murrell is in the game Words With Friends. After approaching you he asks to go to Hangouts and strikes up a discussion. He is 59 years old, a geologist and from Barcelona though living in Orlando, Florida. That later changes to Ireland. Says he has two sons but doesn't name them. Like all of them he is thin on the ground with any details about himself. He wants to move quickly to the scam questions. What is your favourite colour, food, drink, likes and dislikes? etc.
He then moves to the love very quickly and declares it. "We" speak and the accent is heavy African. After a few weeks it is daily contact on Hangouts and then things go wrong for him. He changes his story as he initially said he was in the North Sea and is now in the Gulf of Mexico. The man in the images he sends appears to be different.
This has all the red flags for an online oil rig romance scam. I'm not posting all the love talk and introductions but take a look at what he has given us once the scam is over.
- He changes where he lives from Orlando to Ireland
- He changes where he works from the North Sea to the Gulf of Mexico
- He can't name his two sons
- He only names an employer when asked in response to him wanting money.
- The man used in the pictures being sent to you appears to change.
- He denies ever having been to Argentina when the man and cars in the photo are from there.
- He can't access his bank account, for no valid reason and has to use an "agent"
- The contract he is on is very good in his words.
There are many more but I'm using this submission to highlight a few other things that occurred when he was getting close to asking for money. I did push a little and he had the answers. As you'll see I've posted details so you can view his US Passport and webpage of BP Oil. A look at a few things;
Him: And having some little problem here
Me: Ooh babe what's wrong I don't like hearing you've a problem
Him: Oh my dear thank you for showing concern
Him: Yeah am having problem with the water I drink here in the high sea
Him: They almost finished now and I try to get in touch with the agent they asking for some money
Him: So I thought I should ask you if you can help what ever you can for me pls
Me: Ooh babe so you have a problem with drinking water at sea?
Him: Could you be of help to me pls
Him: So I can send you the agent information so you can credit them for for them to be able to get me water pls
Me: What's wrong babe the filtration system break?
Him: Nope I mean water for me and the crew worker to drink here
Him: Because we don’t drink the sea water here understand
Edit: He thinks I'm as stupid as he is. So an oil rig has run out of drinking water and he is unable to say why. Nor can he say why he can't access his funds and has to use an "agent". When they use that word it is the definition of a scam as you can't collect in the name of someone who doesn't exist no matter how well you claim they do. He now gives more information as money is involved on who he works for and what he has. I trip him up on his lies;
Him: Having problem with my bank account here and I try to call on the company they said I have to get done with the job before the make payment
Me: What bank did that to you babe?
Him: Onetimetrust bank
Him: Am just so confuse here now baby
Him: Could you be of help pls my love
Him: I pay back as soon as I get credit from the company
Me: Which company babe?
Him: Bp oil & Gas drilling company It's not British Petroleum
Me: Okay babe how much you need?
Him: Should I give you the agent bank information so you can get it transfer to the agent
Me: Of course babe. You and your men need water
Him: Account holder Je**** pe***

Okay there is the scam complete with money and "agent" details. Now I trip him up and get more information.
Me: I think you need a solution babe
Him: You mean a solution with the company ?
Me: A solution means you need more money babe
Him: Honey look all I need now is the water everything I need here now are all here so my Equipment are working good
Him: My biggest problem now is the water honey
Me: Okay babe I understand. So sell that lovely white Lamborghini you're proudly standing by in one of your pictures. I think that's about $500,000. All your problems solved. Isn't that a great solution babe? I really am thinking about you my love
Him: Oh you know that is not here
Him: You helping to get things done for me honey
Him: Talking about that is not here
Him: You really sound funny
Me: Well. Call your agent and have her sell it. I mean i can understand you like it. If so, sell the flash Mercedes instead. Either or you'll have your agent bank $500,000 tomorrow. All your problems solved
Edit: You can see I've no intention of paying and he is starting to worry. I'm limited so now some key quotes as he falls apart on his lies and starts to flap after I say keep the Lamborghini and sell the Mercedes.
Him: I am not there to even do anything okay
Him: Did you understand now ?
Him: Don’t worry just help me get the money to them so I get water okay
Him: I will add $5k in payback okay
Him: I promise not to fail you
Him: Trust me and help me I love you and you know that okay
Him: You would not let me die would you ?
Him: You know I will not lie to you
Him: You have to trust me for that
Me: You’ve 2 cars worth millions and can’t sell one?
Edit and he continues trying to press my emotional buttons to no avail.
Me: You just said you’ve never been to Argentina that’s where your Lamborghini is I think you need to sell it
Him: If you don't love me can you stop stressing me ?
Me: Well I think I’m asking fair questions
Me: I think you’re a bit geographically challenged
Him: You don't know how to help those you said you love?
Me: You don’t know how to stop lying to those you love
Edit again as we bicker
Me: Where's your oil rig?
Him: Check the company website out baby
Him: So you know I am not joking okay
Edit: It doesn't look like anything but a website set up for a scam even though he says it will verify who he is. It does with an employee number but the company doesn't exist.
Him: In the Gulf of Mexico
Him: Check out the website you will find my profile
Me: Okay that is a long way from the North Sea
Him: Here is my ID number
Edit: Okay use the link he gave and navigate to "verify" and Morrison Lucas Murrell has a US passport and his address is Ireland and not Orlando FLA. On we go and I have no love or money just time for his lies. All they do is lie.
Me: Why did you own your cars on Friday and now no longer own them?
Him: I thought your a good woman like you always says
Me: Your bank. The one you can't access. I know why
Him: If you can’t understand me what I am telling you then stop asking me questions your stressing me
Edit as he has a flap and refuses to answer any questions at all;
Me: Why, if you're so successful, can't you answer a simple question?
Him: Your question are not helping me so forget
Him: I fill so embarrassed asking you for help then you fooling me
Him: Not your fault baby
Me: You're the fool man. Off you go on your merry way. You're so "successful" I'm sure you'll figure it out
End of his scam. He is still sending texts on Hangouts. There is a lot to go off here. His bank and oil company don't seem to exist. He didn't know where he lived, changed the location of the oil rig and I thought telling him to have his agent sell an expensive car was reasonable..
