Nigerian Dating Scam - I've been there

by Catherine
(Sheffield, UK)

I am a widow and after just over two years my friends told me to try internet dating. As I was in my 40's I thought I would join a site for over 40-plus dating which you pay a subscription for and I thought would be safe.


I started chatting to a guy who said he was english born but his father was american. He was working for the united nations as an orthapedic surgeon which I thought was a bit of a story but I went along with it.

We were chatting for a few weeks and he suggested going onto messenger as it would save money on subscriptions. He told me things like he was also a widower and told me about his wife etc. This went on for 3 months.

I gave him my mobile and he rang me each evening and we would chat for 5 or 10 mins at a cost to him not me. He even rang me when I was on holiday in Spain. When I came back we chatted for another couple of weeks and then he asked me for some money so that he could home and we could be together.

I was so gullible for the love but as soon as he asked me for money I cut him off completely. The best advice I can give you is if anyone asks for money or your bank details to transfer money into - cut them off totally and report them to the site you originally met on.

I also did some checking on other sites and also facebook and reported him on each site in a hope that nobody else can be conned by him. But I will say if they sound too good to be true cut them off and don't even say anything to them just get rid of them as soon as possible for the sake of your heart and in a lot of circumstances your pocket.

They pretend to be soldiers, working in Pakistan and also in jobs that will pull at your heart strings to make you fall for them as soon as possible.

Please take this warning and be very careful and forget about how you feel when you find out, and get them reported to whoever you can.

Fransisco Mateo CDC Epidemiologist
by: Anonymous

This is a reply to the message left by 'anonymous', about Fransisco Mateo. I was talking to the same person, with the exact same job and areas that he lived. We were talking from around July 21 until lately I cut it off.

He is not who he tells you he is. He plays a really good game, getting to know someone, making plans then cancelling, avoiding phone calls and hours on end will go by until he replies to messages.

Has he told you he's in or has been to Wuhan? That he took a contract and has a DUI against him for a mistake back in Maryland, USA?

If he hasn't, he will eventually ask for money. Don't fall for it or give him any compromising pictures he can use against you.

I cannot say who it is behind the messages because he is very well spoken. Is this his phone number by the way 07418320658?

Its a burner phone. Cannot connect calls, only through encrypted app-signal.

TO JULY 11 SCAMMER RESPONDING TO JULY 11

Your story is exactly the same as mine...everything you said is exactly word for word the same thing as I am going through even your description of this man.

The man is beautiful, deep blue eyes, dimples, killer smile, muscles, but I had to get away from him. I loved him so much, it almost killed me. I was 70 when I met him on Facebook, and still with my looks he was 44. I am so broken.

Even my age and his age. It has been 2 yrs now that I've been with this liar and I am about to cut him off at the knees. I too am so heart broken. I fell for this beautiful face of his and I was also thrown out of 2 banks for fraud that I did not commit.

Every single damn word you wrote is my story too.

I just copied your story and emailed it to him. I think he knows what's coming next. He uses the name Christopher Montpetit. I'm sure he isn't the real Christopher Montpetit.

Yep this guy has as at Oct 2021 created a profile as an orthopaedic surgeon on Plenty of Fish. Wife died of leukemia and he was forced to put his son in boarding school to be cared for and works for US nations!

I was immediately suspicious when his WhatsApp came up as a Number abroad and he said he feared I would finish with him if we spoke as his accent is so bad. For goodness sake don't go there because if it sounds too good to be true it IS too good to be true!!

Any guy who messages you straight away morning and night with endearments and multiple hearts is not mature even if not a faker. You have a name so make them use it. Endearments are earnt not bandied about

Fransisco Mateo is a scammer! Run while you still can unscathed. Unfortunately, he scammed my friend of a lot of money constantly asking for iTunes cards and money.

He is a Nigerian who has stolen someone else’s identity. Block him immediately and report him to scamhaters.united on IG. They will report him to IG and have him taken down.

Maybe someone heard about Rico Foster UN in Syria and Gabe Ronny UN in Norway(Oslo)? Both of them sent me a request on Fb. Same story, video call very short (few seconds), the voice was interesting.

Both of them wanted iTunes cards. One needed me to request for an emergency vacation, and he said I needed to pay for it.

I think both of them are a scam.

Can you help me please? I didn't send any money of course. Thanks

I got scammed (well he tried). He claimed to be a soldier in West Africa. We talked for a while and everything seemed normal. Then one day he gave me a sob story about not eating and how his friends get packages and he doesn't.

That's when he started asking for money.

Unfortunately, if the family has indeed done all of that and she still doesn’t believe he is the scammer that he is, it may be time for an intervention with a psychiatrist. He is 100% a fraud and will strip her of all she has and not stop until he has her banking and personal data if he doesn’t already.

If she participates in his requests with receiving and depositing checks and then forwarding the money, she will be caught and charged with money laundering like so many others.

Lastly, check out and most importantly have her review scamhatersunited on Instagram. They are quite good and will assist taking him down. What is his current IG account and how is your sister communicating with him?

Mark Hector, Orthopedic Surgeon in Yemen
by: Anonymous

For the past 2 weeks I've been taking with a very handsome man by the name of Mark Hector. He told me he was from a town near me but has been working with the WHO for the past 2 years in Sana'a Yemen as an Orthopedic Surgeon.

I immediately Googled his name but found nothing, and I then did a Facebook search and again found nothing. When I asked him about it, he said I wouldn't find him. I thought that's odd, but continued talking with him.

I asked for pictures of him and where he was, and he sent me pictures of a very handsome man. Again, my gut kept telling me something was wrong. Why was a man this handsome interested in simple ole me? And the pics didn't add up. He wasn't in any of them, they all looked like Stock photos from an Army camp. I asked if we could talk and he said the Taliban watches/ listens for any type of radio signal so it would be very risky.

He finally did make a video call, and the person on the call was the person in the pics, so at that point I thought it was real. But less than 1 min into the call it dropped. I didn't hear from him again for 2 days, until I sent an email to the email address he'd given me for Hangouts. We started another Hangouts conversation.

A week goes by and we kept taking. Again, my gut kept telling me something wasn't right, so I confronted him with it. He said he was hurt that I wouldn't trust him. Being the fool I was, I apologized and we continued for another week.

Then today, I tried looking him up again on the internet under Dr. Mark Hector, Orthopedic Surgeon. I figured I'd find SOMETHING. Instead I found this article.

When I confronted him with this, he again got very defensive and started attacking my mentality, saying he knew this would happen and if this is how I loved someone. I explained that I was simply looking out for my best interest. His last comment was "You can think what ever you want, do what you want but don't forget this day" to which I replied believe me, I won't.

I was able to get a copy of a passport, which I'm sure is a fake, along with all of the pics he sent. I'm going to try to find out who the gentleman in the pic is by contacting the authorities.

My heart is broken, but I feel more stupid for not listening to my gut sooner.

I hope my story along the the original story helps someone else before they give these people any money and waste anymore time and heartache

Larson Grey is a scammer and your sister should run while she can! Larson is not a Dr. stationed in Afghanistan. It’s all a made up story to scam your sister. She should not send him money or gift cards. She also shouldn’t provide any personal information.

If she is communicating through Google hangout she should get off of that platform immediately and block him.

These scammers seek their prey very carefully and specialize in vulnerable women.

Lastly, under no circumstances should she deposit any check he might send her as she will face money laundering charges.

Good luck!

I believe I was about to be scammed by a guy on fb. Same sob story, widowed, two sons. A UN orthopedic surgeon working in Yemen. Lol this is so ridiculous that they use the same story over and over. I literally spoke with him for a day before my intuition told me somethings off.

So I did some digging, and his fb is super bare. Cannot find him doing a reverse search. Somethings off. I checked out the likes on his fb pics and they’re all guys from Nigeria hahaha how lame are these guys.

They can’t even make the profiles they use seem somewhat believable.

Scammers
by: Alice

Richard Harrison picked my name from face book and we started chatting on messenger and then he asked to change to hangout. He told me he was a widower and has a son in boarding school in Los Angles. He was an orthopedic surgeon in Yemen so I played his game and he asked me to get him a google playing gift card and he said go to Walmart.

It was all so real so I did purchase the card and a week later he wanted a steam card for a better connection. I said no then he told me his son turns 15 and he likes a computer game but had to ship it to Arkansas to his teacher so he gave me the name and address in Arkansas then he said the teacher had called and said Peter needs a new computer for 900$.

That’s when I had enough.

I reported him to the government and there was no teacher and that it was a scam so I told him to go to hell. I haven’t heard from him again so be aware. The Government said no American DR goes on a dating online site so run the other way.

Stay safe

Pretends to be in the US military and works as an orthopaedic surgeon, widower, young daughter Sara. Talks about God and looking for romance. I have been to the US myself and he knew nothing about where he said he was from, Arizona.

English is broken and sounds like a Nigerian. He comes on strong with the charm but basically the guy is a dumb ignorant ass and you would have to be a fool not to recognise this as a scam by the utter nonsense he speaks.

This guy is active on Quora NOW 25th July 21.

I did a simple search and found the scam, can't actually believe he is still using the same lame story.

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MET ON THE INTERNET!

No matter how lonely or in need of a partner, DON'T be taken in by these losers and their criminal low lives. Warn other people that you know who might fall victim to them.

WE CAN STOP THEM IF WE SPREAD THE WORD.

My situation is the same as yours. I sent my love of 2 yrs money to get him to me, he wanted to marry, was a widower with 2 daughters. I am now financially ruined, accused of fraud by 2 banks. He always had a story, a new crisis would pop up. He said he was in a ship in the Black Sea, Turkey.

Christmas holiday most bosses and some crew went home, leaving the rest of crew of 6 men without pay money, and one man died. My man said he tried to help the man by giving him some of his own meds, and he man died. Said he would be arrested by Turkish Police.

It was always something where he needed more money. He broke my heart, ruined me and I left him. He also used guilt on me and said he was going to die there on the ship, and no one but me could help him. His family disowned him cause of me.

The man is beautiful, deep blue eyes, dimples, killer smile, muscles, but I had to get away from him. I loved him so much, it almost killed me. I was 70 when I met him on Facebook, and still with my looks he was 44. I am so broken.

Well.....I guess I have met this troglodyte as well. He even said I had missed him by a day as he just flew out of Portland, OR and was headed to a contract job on an oil rig. I had told him I lived in the same area. He seemed thrilled.

We talked for weeks everyday and then he said he had "mechanical issues with his machine" - sound familiar. He went by Boune, 59, wife died and he had a 9 yr old daughter. Went to school in England(Lancaster University), lived in Chatsworth, GA, and was currently living in Stafford, OR.

He will ask for Google Play cards. I met him through Facebook when he will get pushy and likes to use guilt.

I told him drs don’t call its the office that calls, and second drs are not going to let you know someone will die and he asked to lend him the money and that he will pay me back. I told him I don’t have any money but he wanted me to take a loan.

He called me and I knew it was from Nigeria because it’s not the same time. He told me I was heartless and I told him to get someone else.

I received a message from Facebook dating from a good looking Orthopedic surgeon with The WHO living in the suburbs of Houston. Immediately I did a reverse image search of photos which are of Tom Ernsting a gay male model and former Olympian swimmer.

So I knew before communicating that this person was a scammer, I just wanted to find out what his technique would be to have me empty out my wallet to him. He said that he was in Houston not overseas and was widowed with a foster daughter. We started corresponding on WhatsApp and moved to google Hangout. He refused to talk over the phone, a video chat snippet was of Tom, so we texted back and forth.

Within a couple days he was telling me that he loved me, and asked what I would get him for his birthday coming up, I asked what he wanted and he said Amazon cards. I asked how I should deliver the Amazon cards to him and he said just photo graph the numbers and send to him.

I blocked him, shortly after he calls me from another phone number, and hearing his voice for the first time it was an African accent and he asked why I blocked him. I told him why and he became angry, then I blocked the number he called from.

I implore always do a reverse image search and never give money to someone you've never met.

It was fun but at the end of the day when he said something like it was destiny to bring us together or something cheesy like that, I had a feeling he is a catfish. And once I started googling him and saw all this other fake orthopedic surgeons with the UN - bingo.

Is in love with me after 2 conversations, kept asking, "where are you and what are you doing", "do you have a boyfriend", "I feel so connected and moved by you", etc.

You get the point, anyway, knowing that physicians licenses are public information, I looked him up, no one exists with this name. I looked up his number, 914 area code, which I know to be NY. Since this all didn't make sense to me, I asked a few questions after a few conversations, reported and blocked.

I thank goodness I am smart enough to see the red flags and not fall for the newest scam on the market. When I researched the name he gave, it mostly came up as a Nigerian used name.

Get a job, a real job, and stop scamming people who don't trust what you say since it doesn't make sense, lol!

Scammed
by: Anonymous

I also have been speaking with a Orthopaedic doctor from Sansii Yemen. I have just talked with him but he was texting on WhatsApp with me for about a month.

Something felt wrong from the beginning. His name supposedly was Henry Wilson. A widow with a young son.

I broke off all contact after doing some research. I feel very stupid for letting it go on that long. Never asked me for money but repeatedly claimed he was in love with me.

Word of caution, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is a scam. I believe it’s called CAT FISHING😡

Ive been talking to this guy for awhile now. He’s stuck on a rig as it’s broken and needs parts - no one to help him - wants money from me to help and then will come over to me and we can sail away etc

Ive sent him a gift card for 50.00 so he can sell on for food but wants more. I Have no money to send so he gets nasty and blocks me then Unblocks me and says he loves me but I’ve abandoned him like the rest of his small group of friends

He has no family at all, he’s very handsome, a silver fox who says he’s lives in California but has an Italian family origin. 6 months wasted on this man if he’s not real.

What do I do as I don’t have money

Thank you all for posting. My latest is a Surgeon with the UN named Randy - currently in Yemen. Born in Brooklyn. We haven't gotten too far, just seemed too good to be true, though he did provide clear and meaningful texting. He hasn't asked for anything yet but I'm done.

I also want to warn you about men who work in the Oil and Gas industry - had 2 of those ask to go to What's App, then one continued to try to get to me through other phones after I cut him off. I deleted WA.

I was on Facebook dating and I received a message from "Thomas". He claims that he is an orthopedic surgeon and he's in Yemen but he won't answer my questions and he will be back in the states in a couple of weeks. His parents are dead and he has no other relatives.

He immediately asked to go to a different app. He always call me "dear". He won't video chat or talk on the phone. Some of them will begin a sentence without "I" instead; they begin with "am" broken English grammar is lacking.

MAGIC JACK

There is a device called a Magic Jack that will conceal a scammers location, and the network is YMAX. My scammer had a phone number for my state and told me that he lived in my state when not on assignment in Yemen. After he vanished from my life I did a reverse image search of this phone number and noticed YMAX the network for Magic Jack, which I then googled and learned about Magic Jack which a caller can make free calls anywhere in the world as long as the phone number if it is a USA or a Canadian phone number this physical location of the phone can be located anywhere.

I plugged my scammers phone number into Beenverified which showed a map of both Africa my scammers physical location and of my state in the USA of the phone number, my scammer told me that he was in Yemen and that his phone was a satellite phone which I learned cannot be used indoors.

Folks, I read the posts on this site because I had suspicions about a fella who contacted me via FB. As so many have posted, he claims to be American (said he was from Chicago in my case), has a 13 year old son in boarding school in the UK, works as a surgeon with the UN in Yemen, and a widowerike me.

After one Messenger exchange, he then tried to initiate a video call via Messenger. I did not respond. We've been communicating through Messenger for several days. He always asks about me, but won't answer my questions. A couple days ago he asked me to download the app "WhatsApp." I looked it up, it made me feel uneasy due to the things the app can access (like all your contacts) so I didn't do it.

He has been rather insistent that I just do what he asked. I said no. Today I finally had the chance to search him on the internet & came across this post. He's the same guy. I blocked him immediately.

Dr. Donavan Sebastian
by: Anonymous

What a story! Contacted me on social media and said he's an orthopedic surgeon working for the UN healthcare in Istanbul, Turkey. He educates the students on surgeries. The work consists of bone fusion, things like lungs, heart, and other treatments. Not sure what an orthopedic surgeon has to do with lungs and heart??!!

He had said he was born in Brooklyn, and when he was 3, taken to Paris because his dad moved there for work. He's fluent in English but has an accent.

In 2004 he came back to the states and settled in Washington DC. He met his wife in Brooklyn, and it was a crazy love. They had a son, and then his wife and her dad convinced him to move to Turkey because her dad worked for the organization and they needed help. Then they divorced, but he's on 6 years contract.. rigorous contact. He works and lives in the base, and the government provides food, clothes, and all necessary things.

He said he wants a video call. Video calls were weird, it was dark, and I couldn't even see his face clearly, but his accent was not French. He also sent a bunch of selfies. I can't tell if it was the same person from the video.

I got very suspicious. Oh, did I tell you that he loved me from the 3rd day from the day we started chatting? He sent me love stories (copied from the internet), hearts and kisses, was extremely polite, making future plans with me, said he wants to open his hospital (hmmm), and everything sounded terrific but too good to be true.

He hated my questions, and his reaction to my questions was like, I don't trust him even after our video calls, and if I don't trust him, we need to stop our conversations and our relationship. We even 'broke up' twice when, in his opinion,' I was persistent with my questions.

Remember, I'm already highly suspicious at this point? I made him come back to me both times because I was so curious to know the conclusion to this beautiful love story

As you all know, these guys know what to say to make you the happiest woman on planet earth. 😉
One day, he said that he would ask his supervisor for a vacation to come to see me in the states (hooray). But unfortunately, his supervisor denied it and wanted me to write him the details about me, like my official name, where I'm from, and where Dr. Sebastian will meet me.

I was shocked and said I'm not sure if I want to do it. He'd said he's cool with me if I don't do it. He understands. But one day, he got so upset with me for not doing it. His tone changed, he became angry. I was shocked!

Later that day, I worked long hours and shared some level of details about my work issue. My work is related to financial fraud. I honestly did it on purpose, and guess what he was so curious as never before and started asking me questions (he never was interested in any level of details of my life).

So I became so impatient since I already got a clear picture of where this romance was going, I decided to confront him. He let me finish saying what I was going to say (I had a lot); he told me that I was wrong, I don't know anything about him, and his story is true. He thanked me for everything, wished me a happy life, and blocked me!

It's my ten days 'love story' in a short version. I wish I could share the pictures and his fake doctor's ID for you ladies to be aware of this fake doctor.

Found me on Yahtzee App
by: Anonymous

"Neurosurgeon" Robert Mangal Robinson who claims to be in Syria on a peacekeeping mission and claims to be from Los Angeles, widowed with a son in boarding school. This wasn’t even a dating site or social Media forum.

He played against me in Yahtzee for like a month before sending me a message. I didn’t fall for any of it and questioned him on every statement.
I googled some of his messages and he follows every scam trick in the book.

A tip I can give if you are curious if someone is a scammer is just google their messages. Pushing for info I asked what the hardest thing about being a "neurosurgeon" is and he sent a very long nicely worded statement. It was copied from the first search result of "hardest thing about being a neurosurgeon"

Quite an unoriginal scammer but sly none the less

Definitely a scammer. Beware. Very polite and nice looking. But he got a bit testy. Works on an oil rig in fact he is the head honcho and part broke and he was being held responsible. Ordered a part and it was finally being shipped? BUT he had to use his own account to pay and then the oil company would reimburse him.

VERY FISHY SO I JUST BLOCKED AND DELETED HIM FROM MESSENGER.

I had received an email a couple days previous on email about his stories about having to pay etc from his own account so I was totally aware and have read too much about scammers.

In fact, I totally led him on about being in love etc. SO. I PLAYED HIS GAME FROM BEGINNING AND WASTED HIS TIME.

SOOOO BEWARE OF ANYONE WORKING ON OIL RIGS. HE COULD NOT CALL ME AND I COULD NOT CALL HIM so another big RED FLAG so BEWARE.

FinancialRecovery.tech
by: Anonymous

I've been a victim of a scam and lost money. I was on Quora and read about a woman who lost $100,000 to a scammer, and the money was borrowed from her parents. She writes that she found out about Financialreovery.tech and they were able to recover all her money, and the company keeps %10 of whatever's recovered.

I was intrigued and found the website and wrote a message about my story. Shortly thereafter I received a call from one of the companies agents, he had a very strong African accent, I thought I won't be biased and just listen to him, and he promised that he would recover all my money and they would keep %10 except they asked for a retainer fee which needed to be paid to them in bitcoins which I've never used, so I asked if I could pay with my credit card and was told that bitcoin was the preferred payment. I was told that Elon Musk was happy to have discovered bitcoin.

I agreed to their services but would not pay until my money was recovered which the agent reluctantly agreed with but I told him that I don't make snap decisions that I had to think about it.

Day #2 this agent requested to be allowed my number for WhatsApp which I gave to him, and within a few hours he was calling and messaging me incessantly on WhatsApp which I ignored because I had not made a decision.

Day #3 He called me continuously when I was at work, so I excused myself and went to a place where I could have a private conversation with him, and he became very aggressive and abusive, so I thought about it and decided after reading a website about this particular business that the website as glossy as it is presents numerous red flags.

After my conversation with him I decided that I was dealing with fraud and blocked this agent from contacting me further. I then went back on Quora and read many, many testimonials about this business that recovers monies lost by individuals to scammers, but it seems that many of the testimonials may have been fraudulently written.

I didn't want to throw bad money after bad money and lose more money if they had taken my money and disappeared as I would have had no recourse because the agent told me he was in London.

Be careful out there.

We were supposed to meet on several occasions. He said he was in Finland, he did have a European accent. I am not so sure about Finnish. I tried to stop his pictures on numerous dating sites and they refused to take it down. Who was the life coaches pictures that was used? I am wondering if it is the same scammer??

Scammer from Damascus Hospital, Syria Dr Frank Bradley , Orthodox Surgeon
by: Anonymous

Ive been a close friend of Dr Frank Bradley stating that he works from Damascus Hospital , Syria as Orthodox Surgeon. For 2 years we have been intimate with all my trust for him and I was swayed with his promises for me to be his beneficiary of his hard earn money for 5 years that he has not received yet from the UN volunteer mission as a doctor.

Moreover, I was dismayed when he asked for money to pay all the requirements for the VAT and other expenses especially for a Diplomat to deliver the briefcase of money door to door at my house.

Moreover, he tried to ask me to send 1.5M PHP for the sake of delivery by the Diplomat courier. But then he is not happy when I sent that money and he asked me to sell all my property, my house my ATM salary, and my pension monthly to be sent all to him.

He entertained me when I mentioned about money but he ignored me when no money was involved in conversation. My problem now is that all the money I sent to him we all borrowed and I am now facing a case of swindling by a scammer. I was taken for a ride. with such huge amount of money I sent.

Help me with whom I will report this to? Im so scared and frightened of what will I do next for all of this?

Claims to be a widower, parents passed away when he was a teenager and the only family he has is a 16 year old daughter who doesn’t live on the base with him.

Asked if he could call me today but I declined. Hasn’t asked for money and is really speaking somewhat normally although some sounds like a foreigner could be texting.

I met this guy on fitbit app. He said he was a medical doctor in Connecticut at the Salvation Health hospital working under a contract that was just ending to help with covid patients. He said he got a new contract with the United Nations & had to leave right away for Somalia. He told me they froze his bank accounts for security purposes & was worried about that.

He professed his love early on and always wanted pictures of me, saying what a beautiful smile & beautiful eyes I had. He called me from over there & the phone kept cutting out. He said they told him he needed to register the phone. He asked me to contact "Somalia Outreach by email & register under his name saying he could only have one person registered to him. As soon as I said I wanted to be registered to him, Outreach told me that would cost me $1,000.00 for the phone to be connected for the entire time he was there, which would be until the health of the people was raised to 60%.

He said the food was so terrible he could barely swallow it & It would cost me $1,500.00 for a food subscription so he could get better food. Then he said he developed an ulcer & the next thing I knew, he was in the hospital, needing surgery!

Outreach told me it would be $7,000.00 for the surgery which had to be paid before they could do it because they had to bring in a specialist. He had also asked for $1,617.00 to pick up his equipment he had sent over there that he needed to treat his patients.

He also asked for Google play cards ($500.00 & $200.00) to pay to keep the phone working until I paid for it. He sent pictures of a very handsome man in scrubs with a name badge.

I can't believe how gullible I was, but they play on your emotions when you are down & lonely.

I contacted the U.N. (After I was out $2,700.00) that Outreach assured me would be paid back when his job there was done. They told me this was a scam & to discontinue contact immediately! I also reported it to the Federal Trade Commission & the State Police who told me the same thing.

I have since changed my bank account numbers, gotten new debit & credit cards, & changed my phone number & changed my email!

Please be careful ladies. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!

After I didn't pay for the surgery, Outreach told me he had a cardiac arrest & was in a coma! He called me the next day & begged me to pay for the surgery so he wouldn't die.

That was when I cut him off!!

Stories of suffering. Two daughters, with a wife who passed from cancer 9 months before we started chatting on Facebook. Moved to hangouts wanting me to help with iTunes, Steam and Apple cards.

Working as a marine mechanical engineer in Turkey or London on a rig ship. I trusted him completely, he put money into my bank account and it turned out to be fraud. Two bank accounts closed on me for fraud. He claims it wasn't him. He has all personal information on me. I Am so scared now I am going to block him now.

I reversed imaged him, and nothing came of it. I am now terrified he will do more damage to me. $8000 from bank fraud, on top of my own $20,000 debt. I am just an old woman on SSI and am now in deep financial trouble.

I am so scared.

Hi everyone,

Please beware of a new scamming profile under the name of "Fernando Dawson". As I previously read in another comment, he pretends to be an orthopedic surgeon from Irving, Texas and working in Yemen with the UN.

His account is brand new (created January 2021) and he has no followers, yet follows SO MANY WOMEN. I did a reverse image search with his profile picture and I came across a tangled web of fake LinkedIn profiles and twitter accounts. I knew right off the bat that he was fake and I'm just toying with him and having my fun at this stage.

Be careful and stay safe everyone!

Dr. Clegg -Vigorh Clinic
by: Anonymous

I am embarrassed how gullible I was. I know better my mom was scammed a few years ago. She was about ready to send "Frank" 20,000 and luckily I caught it. She was asking for help sending an attachment with her banking info.
I received a message on Facebook dating from Dr. Michael Clegg and we started chatting. He asked for my email because he is not on Facebook often. Then it was WhatsApp.

Text book move. In hindsight as I reread the messages so many red flags that I missed. He stated he was a Human respiratory specialist. He sent me a link to Vigorh Clinic where he "consultants" and at first it looked legit. I did google search the latter and its not Legit and none of the drs listed were real and no other info online but the link he sent me.

He said he just moved to Eugene and is from Ventura, which ironically I lived in Ventura for awhile and he never answered any question's about favorites spots. He also said he is involved in groundbreaking treatment of life threatening diseases with Doctors without borders.

He was a widow and lost his mom a few weeks after. Luckily we only commutated for a few weeks. What was my wakeup call was his last message "I hardly slept because I got a urgent summon to go to Bahrain so I can get my license, that is all that's remaining for us to go public. I will be leaving for Bahrain soon as I find the next available flight my dearest I am upset I wish we met sooner you are my good luck charm Yada Yada Yada.

My response: Good morning to you! What exciting news. How long will you be there? Maybe we can have a Virtual date before you leave. I have exciting news myself. My brother and his wife are coming to visit. I have not seen them since Christmas 2019. They live on the east coast and I don't get to see them often. We are celebrating, his wife officially became a FBI agent who will work in cyber security. Cant wait to tell her all about you.

I Immediately blocked him from all social media. Took screen shots of all of the photos and commutations. I am beating myself up that I did not realize sooner. If they sound too good to be true, then they are.

Catherine Morgan - Atlanta Georgia USA

This person has a profile on LinkedIn, she states she is 35 and is a caregiver (previously worked on the grocery mart) and she states she is looking after her sick mom. Contacts guys requesting connections. Soon after she contacts you via WhatsApp she asks if she can exchange pictures (just profile photos) and then states she has lost her job and her landlord is about to evict her and her mom, and she asks for help and gets angry because she is showing feelings towards you and you will not help.

She contacts you early on the morning ; Atlanta is -5 hours from the uk so she is sending messages at 2-3 in the morning. I video called "her" without letting her know I was going to and found this phone being operated by 2 coloured males wearing t- shorts and sandals.

They dropped the phone when I said busted and they hung off. Be careful out there. I was lucky.

Sad part about this is there is a commander in the Coast Guard who is legit. Someone took his identity and was using it to scam me. He lied like a rug. Wife cheated on him and he divorced her. Has a daughter Lauren who is the love of his life.

Fell in live with me. Can't get his money $7000 to go to London to take his daughter to Hartford CT for Christmas and he was retired. Needed $3000 from me and would pay me back as soon as I went to visit after Christmas.

Michael Morrison doctor
by: Anonymous

He told me he was a doctor and called michael morrison and sent me pictures of himself and said he worked in a busy hospital in Amsterdam and being a nurse myself i asked him a few medical questions he could answer if he really was a doctor.

Anyway he always had an excuse why he couldn't face time me then after 2 months i told him if he really loved me he would show himself to me or i was blocking him as he uses Instagram hangout watsapp and dating sites so he told me he would tell me the truth if i still spoke to him.

I agreed to so i could see his real identity and he video called me and he was 29 not 39 like he told me and when he was the doctor Nigerian and his name was Tejiri TJ for short he had a twin brother Tega and lived in delta region of Nigeria which is one of the poorest.

I asked him how many women he had done this to and he said over 100 but as Michael Morrison 20 and the rest were under different names. He showed me where he lived and said why they do it and they ask for dollars as their money is naria and they got more naria on the black market for selling gift cards. I spoke to him for 3 hours on video call. I told him what he was doing was wrong and he said there is no jobs and every boy and girl between the age of 16 to 32 do this.

I asked him why he said no money here no food they have to buy gas for their generator or they dont get light in their homes. He said sometimes white woman as he referred to them are always over 40 as they are easier and he said they think they are talking to a man but it could be a woman.

The room he was in there was 6 men and 3 women online while he was speaking to me as doctors, oil workers etc and he told me everything I said to him doesn't make him feel guilty because you would do anything to feed your family.

I told him i couldn't speak to him anymore and that i was adding it to the site so women were warned and he said they would just find new pictures and new names but he asked me as he told me the truth could he stay in touch and maybe make a real relationship as he could come to the uk then and be happy and rich.

I ended the call and blocked him then so ladies please please be careful as none of these men are real and they are all fake so stop sending the money xx

Orthopedic surgeon working for the uno
by: Anonymous

I befriend a man on Facebook who called himself Dr Donald Paul. He told me he was a orthopedic surgeon. He lives in California. He goes on to tell me he has been working in Afghanistan for the past five years. His wife died around then. He has a son 11yrs old who lives in Nigeria with his teacher.

Red flags do go up. I bought his son £100.00 steam digital gift card for him as he couldn't access his bank from Afghanistan. More Red flags. He Asked me to chat to him on hangout. I said messenger is fine but he insisted. Ive got pics of him in his surgical scrubs and pics of his son. He asked me to marry him but he needed help with a leave permit certificate.

As for his son if it is but I doubt it I don't mind the Xmas gift. I've confronted him and told him he isn't who he says he is. He hasn't asked me for any money for this but I knew it was coming. He hasn't read his mail yet. So that will be a nice Xmas present for him. He said he's a very godley man and a good Christian.

I also asked him to what God he prayed to because its surely isn't mine. So angry that people like this feel no remorse for taking people's money.

Please be careful everyone. He probably has many names but for me he was Dr Donald Paul.

Orthopedic Surgeons David Anderson and Kevin Mark
by: Anonymous

Dear friends,

There are no orthopedic surgeons trying to get in touch with you, especially ones supposedly based in a foreign country like Syria! You don't need to ask if anyone has heard of these guys because they are liars!

Big red flag: 2 first names, like Kevin Mark.

Other red flags: Orthopedic surgeon, engineer, oil rig worker, widower, child in boarding school, born in another country, moved to some place in U.S., but lives in another town (weird how so many of them say that!), wife killed in an accident (usually) or died some other way, says he loves you right away, starts calling you honey or sweetie or other endearments right away, etc., etc.

Don't kid yourself that this guy is for real. Obvious scammers! Please report and block them asap.

Surgeons in War Torn Areas Scams
by: Anonymous

It's amazing how many stories are similar. Most of these scoundrels are in War-Torn areas working as Medical Professionals, widowed or divorced with one child. They send a few pictures that appear staged and are very evasive about their past and life.

Another similarity is "internet interruption" because the internet is poor, no phone service or the computer has a bad keyboard. They refuse a video chat or a phone call at no cost to them.
From LinkedIn to Hangouts just as fast as he starts saying "I love you!"

If it's too good to be true, then it is.
Lastly, watch out for grammar, spelling, and fake college credentials.

LinkedIn Surgeon in Afghanistan Fraud
by: Anonymous

A sweet-talking scammer going by the name of Dr. Jay Fred convinced me to chat with him on Hangouts because he was supposedly in Afghanistan until February. Later, he changed his name to Fergal Fred because he said that was his real name. He claimed he was born in Ireland, graduated from Trinity College, and moved to Ohio.

He claimed to be Catholic, divorced, 53 years old, 5'11" with blue eyes and had a home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Often, we would get disconnected, and he claimed that the internet crashed. Three days before Thanksgiving, he alluded that he needed money to pay for the internet. I was already suspicious since he was very evasive, and I could not locate him in the directory of physicians.

An image search revealed that he was on other dating sites with different names. Specifically, he was on an LDS site claiming that he was from NY, a Mormon, and was 56 with brown.

I blocked him immediately.

Beware of men claiming to be doctors in the Middle East.

Roman Amato and Julien Fedele same person
by: Anonymous

Beware, over 15 months ago on Zoosk I met a very charming and charismatic guy who told me that he was an orthopedic surgeon in Sanaa Yemen with the United Nations Developmental Programme. Roman completely swept me off my feet with his beautiful emails daily, love songs daily from YouTube, phone conversations, etc,

I came across around September 30 2019 on this site from CatVas which described identically exactly with his proposal from the fake attorney website, Alexander his mentor and starting a Mash Unit in Syria, the difference was he told me that his daughters name was Emma aged 12, I could’ve written that September post though Roman told me that he moved to Albuquerque New Mexico after his divorce 6 years ago. CatVas states that Roman told him that he lived in Brooklyn, and I exploded at Roman and felt very hurt when I read her post, and he explained away that someone had hacked into his computer and that he was going to get the IT person to fix things ASAP.

He did change his email address. I found a post from 2017 on this site when he was in Syria and he went by Julien Fedele, his daughter was 12 also at that time, LOL.

Moving forward, I fell in love with him, all photos that he ever sent me of himself were of a Real Estate person by the name of Richard Waystack in the United States. Roman described his looks as having grey/white hair and blue eyes, and I did have 2 video chats within a couple months of one another on Google hangouts, and this guy was very good looking, black hair and intense dark eyes, and then a third video chat months later that I photographed during the video chat which I did a reverse image search and it turned out to be an Eastern European physician where the audio was stripped and romans voice coming out of his mouth.

Roman was rushing me to end the video chat as the actual video was fairly short. I confronted Roman about it and I believe he was very embarrassed. Still I gave him the benefit of the doubt thinking that he was insecure about his looks, when I demanded a photograph he said to me "Let me remain invisible" and even the photos of his daughter Emma which I did a reverse image of her turned out to be not her but a young girl in Georgia by the name of Cami.

Photos of Roman were also photoshopped and even his Italian passport was real but a photo of Richard Waystack as the passport photo, Roman did send a photo of a good looking man with grey white hair in Venice which he said was really him but a reverse image search yielded nothing. Roman had a bit of an accent, but he did not have an Italian accent, and he had a very soft spoken voice.

This past October 2, 2020 he was finally leaving Sanaa Yemen to New Mexico to finally be with me, and we had a very sweet conversation, and he said he was flying out of Yemen from the Base to Dubai and then to New Mexico where we would finally be together and buy our own house immediately.

I never heard from Roman again thinking the worst that he succumbed to Covid etc, until recently I found on Pinterest with a post from about a week ago from him which makes me think whoever he is he’s actually in Brazil, and he will resurface on a dating website.

I believe that so women be careful. Roman is a pathological liar, he is very good at seducing the heart. I also do believe that Roman is a physician, his knowledge of medicine is very strong, as I too work in the medical profession, so be careful he will steal your heart and not commit, and you’ll never meet him in person.

I’m relieved that he showed his true self to me as I could never live with a liar, all trust would be gone.

Well I've read the messages on here regarding Frank Gilbert and he contacted me first on Facebook as amit karmar raj with frank gilbert in brackets - anyway he told me he was an oil contractor and could I talk to him on hangouts were he rang me more than once and after 2 days was in love with me even though I was wary.

He sent me 20 pictures of himself but I did a google image search and found the pictures on there as a romance scammer named frank hamlin amongst other names. When I questioned him about it he said he was fed up of lies and crap about him and he had been hacked. I believed him to be honest and he told me all this on the phone then he asked me to send him money until his cheque clears to pay for helicopter to get off the oil platform he is on, but what he didnt know at the time was my brother works on an oil platform so I knew you don't pay for transport or food or repairs on an oil platform also you have a good insurance policy to work on one so when I told him this he got very abusive and nasty and set up dating accounts and other things in my name where the fraud department are involved now so please ladies dont believe a word he says.

He is not an oil worker and his picture is not him at all. I hope this helps and I wish I had seen this site before I started talking to him

Another orthopedic surgeon in Yemen
by: Anonymous

After 3 flowery emails, I wrote that I noticed he used many odd phrases, often used by scammers - end of story. He blocked messaging, but not profile, so I have written a complete note to POF on him and they send a "warning", which I like, as they know they are caught.

Not just blocking which does not tell them anything. These stories on here are so sad - please, know physicians have many options and NEVER need $$$.

I had a friend who was a high official in DC, so when I had a serious possible fake, I called him - they were concerned as this man was wanting to send me a suitcase of his personal things & so many valuable artifacts are stolen from these smaller governments, after war.

The FBI and CIA became involved - they sent an agent to my home & using my computer information were able to trace it to the Gold Coast of Africa to an apartment with a long table & multiple computers, which were manned by different people 24/7. They kept notes with account names & sites, and enough on each "target" to let the next person working the scan continue.

PLEASE, never send $$ or give your personal information. God will help you find someone, but value yourself, always be vigilant and careful.

Please be careful with this man as he is good. He also knows about these websites as he mentioned them to me and told me he had been hacked and people were using his information so he is very smart and he knows what he is doing.

He never video calls and always says the internet connection is bad and he will ring you maybe twice then says he cant get a signal anymore. He never sends pictures of him right now in the moment touching his nose or anything and when I did a google image search on him there was pages of different names regrading this man and pictures.

He sent me a lot so please listen to me as I fell for his charm and I believed everything he said and found out he is just a scammer and he will tell you you are the only love of his life and he will tell you god sent you to him and talk a lot about gods gift etc but he a scammer and he only wants your money and when he gets it he moves onto the next victim.

He will tell you he only talks to you and even show you evidence of your name only on his list but he will never accept you calling him on video links and he will decline and he will ignore you unless you give him money.

Up to now I know of 84 victims including myself of Frank Gilbert charm and he has scammed between 84 of us of over $40 thousand so please if you get a message off him block him straight away.

He also uses the name john williams and amit kamar too and he will tell you he is from Arizona but works on an oil platform in Maine. There are no oil platforms in Maine ladies and no oil platform in the world will allow you onboard without insurance so dont believe a word he says and dont be another victim like the 84 of us he as already conned !!!!

Met Joel Peterson on Hinge. Petroleum engineer for Chevron. Said he was from Washington DC, and every time we try to Skype or use Google hangouts the connection was bad. Said he was moving across the country to the West Coast. After a month of being love bombarded by him, he told me he had one last job that he was going to do in Turkey. He promised me that we were going to get married and go looking for a house together.

I fell for it hook line and sinker. Beware of these scammers. He said he lived for the first few years of his life in Jamaica, and we talked on the phone a lot, and he quickly moved the conversation to WhatsApp, sent me pictures of flowers and poetry every day, then just before coming to the West Coast went to Turkey for this secret mission.

Messaged me first for money for equipment, then there was an explosion, and the third trick was that his helicopter crashed while taking them out to the oil rig platform. I got suckered and I lost $40,000. I contacted the hospital in turkey and sent them a picture of the bill. I was told that there was no one by that name in their Hospital, the account number was fake, the entire bill was fake, but their logo was correct.

Reported it to hinge and have yet to hear back. He miraculously Called me while being on deaths bed, because his accomplice by the name of Andrew realized that I knew that something was wrong and I told Andrew I did not want to be scammed. This Joel Peterson then immediately wrote me back a very long message on trust and how could I betray our love and trust. When I asked for a picture of him in the hospital room several times none came through.

Beware of anyone that you have not met face to face and even so if they ask you for money don’t fall for it like I did. This guy love bombed the heck out of me and hit all my vulnerable spots. I went online to Facebook and while he was supposedly dying in a Turkish hospital he created a Facebook page.

Beware and be safe And don’t get taken by these scammers.

Oil rig worker
by: Anonymous

Ladies I had a man contact me who said his name was Frank Gilbert and he worked on an oil rig. He sent me pictures of himself and even rang me a few times on hangout but never video called and always rang with an Italian accent which he did say he was Italian when we first started chatting anyway.

Next min after weeks of talking and getting to know each other he told me one night that an emergency alarm had gone off on the oil rig and he had to go. A few hours later this man messaged me saying he was Franks boss and I was named next of kin and Frank was fighting for his life after a massive explosion on the rig.

As you can imagine I was so upset and asked what I could to be told Frank who apparently told me had this big house in Arizona and all this money working on the rig needed money towards his medical bills or the hospital couldn't treat Frank.

When I asked how much was told 2000 dollars and I then asked what his injuries were and what hospital as I am a nurse and the man got abusive towards me said asking stupid questions and if I cared for Frank I would send the money to save his life.

When I refused I had disgusting messages and a few hours later I had a phone call on hangout and apparently it was Frank telling me he loved me and to help him so he could come home to me. I told him no and blocked him.

Be careful ladies as I had come out of a violent abusive relationship where my ex partner is in prison for years for what he did to me so this man was making me feel like someone loved me again and wanted to be with me.

Never send money no matter what they say. I learnt once again that I cant attract a decent man.

Be careful everyone

I answered a ‘following" picture off of Instagram. Very handsome man who said he was an orthopedic doctor in Yemen. Widower with an 11 yr old son, which he changed to a daughter. I thanked him for his service, as I am trying to do to frontline workers.

Our friendship started and I was swooning in no time. We chatted everyday for almost 3 weeks. He was so sweet and kind and was meeting needs I didn’t realized I had. He showed me his pictures and a picture of him and his daughter. No son. I kept praying for God’s guidance and then is when it hit. The doctor was trying to get out of Yemen because he was scared.

His lawyer said he needed $7800 for paperwork through the UN. He was demanding and wanted me to get a loan and not to tell anyone what I was doing. I told him no and he got aggravated. Didn’t talk after that.

Beware ladies. These scammers are real. I am glad I listened to God and not this person.

"James Miller"
by: Anonymous

I matched on Tinder with a man named "James" and after some pressure to confirm his identity, he said his last name was "Miller". His profile says that he is a consultant with UNHCR-United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and he later claimed to be an orthopedic doctor.

The profile also says that he lives in Lithonia, GA and went to Emory University. He stated that he was mixed (he appeared to look more Greek), his father was from South African and his mother was American, from Washington, DC.

The first day we matched, he asked for my number and if we could chat on WhatsApp. I agreed. Later that night, I noticed that he unmatched with me.

I pressed him for more information to confirm his identity and he could not provide any, just the run around. He gave me the number of 470-799-0540 but no information comes back to that number.

Beware of this fake profile.

I reported him to Facebook but they said his account is genuine so they havent removed him. He talks mostly on hangout what ever that is. He told me he is a doctor, a widow working for the UN but when I ask for a phone call or video chat he tells me he is using a military desktop.

I wouldnt like him to do this to some other woman and she gets hurt badly. Its only that my friend stopped me or I would of sent money.

I have been talking to a so called Dr John Williams who is apparently a doctor originally from Germany but moved to America and now he is based at a military hospital in Kabul Afghanistan.

He sent me pictures of himself and said he cant send me one of him right now as he doesnt have a phone and is only using a military computer and told me he is a widow with a son who goes to boarding school in the states. I fell for all his charms if I am honest as I was in an abusive relationship which nearly cost me my life so I have been alone for a long time.

Anyway I have asked to speak to him on the phone or video chat but he cant as he isn't allowed to on the UN computers and up to this morning he hasnt asked me for money. He has asked me to help him contact this company called Globaltrustlimited and help him get his money belonging to him back and to tell them I am his wife.

I need some advice as he is a scam isn't he?

Very poor English, suspect Indian call center scam of some sort. Towards the end when I said I must verify his identity, he said he was insulted - and I ended the conversation.

DON'T BE A VICTIM!
by: Anonymous

I received a message from a Steve Marcus saying he is an Orthopedic Surgeon on my fb page. Claims he works for the UN and stationed in Somalia since last year (an Ambassador). He says he is a widower and has a 14 year old son, Harry, studying in Austria.

Strange being he "lives" in San Francisco. He asks questions more than really answers. His conversation skills are not that of someone who claims to be a surgeon. Always asking "what time is it over there". On top of that, I don't know any MD's on fb, especially chatting with strangers like this, asking questions like on a dating site. I only answered to welcome as a friend. I'm in a long term relationship and happy.

Anyhow, he kept asking my age. When I told him, he disappeared sort of. He has written "hello" & "what time is it over there", but I refuse to acknowledge. I had a funny feeling this was a scam, especially now that he updated his profile, less information and different pictures (photos of same guy different scenes though still medical/doctor), still from San Francisco, BUT now attended UCSF (before it was Duke University, and a degree Biology).

He will ask if you can use a different platform to communicate, like WhatsApp. He told me his parents died in a car accident when he was young, and was placed in a Catholic school or organization (don't recall exactly) & his wife was a military journalist that was shot & killed on her way home in Afghanistan 4 years ago.

He says he is stationed in Somalia and works with the military & I think civilians. Oh, another unusual thing, orthopedic surgeons generally specialize in a specific area. He says he works on ankle, elbow & knees. Too many strange things! I have his latest fb profile picture, but unable to post here. Sorry!

PLEASE BE CAREFUL & PASS THE WORD AROUND, ESPECIALLY TO THE YOUNG & MORE VULNERABLE!

Help getting rid of these scammers
by: Anonymous

After a very quick google research to confirm my suspicions, I’m convinced my fiancé’s mom is talking to one of these scammers! An orthopedic surgeon based in Yemen. I got access to read some of their messages and they have both committed to spending their lives together
although they have never met in person!

It looks like they are planning to meet soon (Which I’m sure will never happen) and I have confronted her to show her it’s a scam but of course she believes he is real and she has met the love of her life! He has mentioned they should go into business together someday but nothing has happened yet, nor has money been sent or anything.

But we all know it’s coming!

I want to take control of this myself before it gets too far and send this scum a message to tell him to back off.

Any tips on what to say that actually works?

Playing along with him to catch him. He gave the email id of his son, where that guy tells me his phone is damaged and could i buy him one which cost around $500 to $1500. I am just playing along to see what they are up to. I need to report them to cyber crime once I get all the info about them. I am collecting the proof and once I get them I will hand over to cyber.

I had my photo on Scrabble Go myself and was constantly being bombarded with scammers giving me fake stories about working on oil rigs, being surgeons in Syria, wives dying in car accidents, children in boarding schools---all a bunch of lies!

They all had photos posted which were stolen from other people. You can tell right away--too nice looking, dressed in suits or military garb or doctors' scrubs. It is so obvious.....please tell your mum that she is dealing with a scammer and not to believe any of what he says and definitely not to send any money or gift cards to that liar!

He’s been talking to mum from scrabble go for a good few months now saying all the right things, she has fallen for him but now his son has had an accident saying he had a cardiac arrest & fell down the stairs and broke his arm (he’s sent pics of him in the hospital bed) now he has asked her for 3000 pounds as he urgently needs an operation in the US and they won’t operate till he pays that.

1st he claims he can’t access his bank account in the US from Yemen, and he can’t leave till his contract is up in October. He’s not allowed to use a phone and they speak on WhatsApp every day. She’s not sent any money but he keeps insisting his son is going to die without it (she doesn’t have any money) but he still says if she could find a way it would help.

Now he’s saying even if it’s a 1000 pounds it would help, and he claims he has no friends that can help!!!

I lost my money and was emotionally hurt within thirty days only. Though I considered him as a very good friend and not more than that and just got bit acquainted with him. He used to deny video calls which raised doubt in me, after losing my money. Then I found some Indian people's likes, especially women on his posts while he said he did not know any Indian except me. As I said I am married and have a kid and he promised to respect my marriage and family. He said he lost his wife 2 years back in a car accident and has a 11 years old daughter.

Sent me family pics and also professional pictures too. Actually we should be aware of people who are too sweet and won't show up themselves. I lost money and emotionally got hurt.

Americans pretending to be US soldiers deployed in Syria

A week ago I was contacted, through a fitness app called Fitbit, by a guy who pretended to be an american working as a military doctor and now deployed in Syria for 8 months. He said he is a widower and his wife died in a car accident. He sais he has 2 daughters. I didn't continue chatting too much.

After a few days I got a message from another guy, also on Fitbit, saying he is an american soldier deployed in Syria as well. That's when I started to smell something fishy. So he sent me "his" pictures. I searched the internet for those pictures and it turns out that those pictures belong to an actor and a soldier, with a totally different name and information.

What I wanna say is please be carefull. They take advantage of lonely women who maybe feel the need of being loved. They take advantage of women who search for a good guy. Ladies, I don't really think that the guy you look for is on the internet. I know there are happy stories in this world, but please be carefull!

I too am a single mom, divorced, maybe looking for a good guy and I almost got hurt in the process. So please be carefull!

I know what you dealt with. I had my credit ruined and lost more than 50k. He was believable. I may have been targeted. The pictures he presented as himself belonged to an American businessman, who legitimately worked out of the country a lot.

He stole that gentleman’s identity and ruined my credit and had my personal identity and financial credit hacked, abused and ruined.

Funny thing, I ran into another scammer and told him that he was too late that someone else took everything . He educated me and told me he purchased my information off a dark web site. He didn’t try to con me, but educated me and explained how it happens and disappeared. I learned a lot. Now I see the American business man’s pictures on many dating sites in many different countries using many different names.

Every time I see the pictures, I report them as fraud and provide proof. A site I paid to join Elite Singles refused to take it down. In fact, several persons I talked to on that site were foreign scammers. Many doctors, investors and various business men. Amazing how they get away with it and how gullible we are.

Protect yourself. Be careful.

I don’t have that either. I suggested that we write through Messenger, but he doesn’t have that, so he wrote that we could write here (Instagram) and see what the future holds for us. I’m petty sure that he is a scammer, so watch out Ladies.

I’m gonna keep writing with him, just to see how far and how soon before he asks for money, but he ain’t getting a penny out of me !!

His username is travisrobert8899.

Stay away from Marc Williams
by: Anonymous

6 months ago I met this man on Facebook. Being lonely all these years, I knew I was taking risks meeting people online. My sons warned me about it but I just wanted to be with someone who could replace my husband I was married to for 35 years. I’m not a naive woman. I’ve worked in the business sector as a Vice President of a local bank. I saw scams all the time. But since my retirement and my children are now off married with their own families, I wanted to have a partner.

So after chatting online via dating sites and Facebook for three years, I met this "Marc Williams". He claimed to be working as a government contractor in the oil services business off the coast of Norway (I mean in hindsight, Norway – really??). We weren’t allowed to chat directly via Facebook because of the security issues of his job, so we would text only. I wanted to talk directly to him but always it was the job restrictions that prevented hearing his voice.

He said all the right things. I was beautiful and despite our age difference, I’m 78 while he claimed he was 68 years old, he wanted to share the rest of lives together. He was coming home soon and wanted to be anywhere I was. At first he said he was from Nevada but then it changed to Texas, claiming he was "born" in Nevada but grew up in "Texas". He wanted to come to Vermont to be with me.

But then there was the issue with his son Reilly who was in a boarding school in Ireland (but that changed to Manchester later on). The boy apparently had lost his mother to cancer 3 years prior and was lonely. Reilly was turning 13 and was eager to meet me and Marc assured me Reilly would want to call me "Mom".

Being a loving mother, that tugged at my heartstrings!! He agreed that our faith, both Lutheran (what are the chances?!) would be a grounding force in our relationship. At first, he was telling me that he wanted to take care of me and wanted to buy me things. When my TV broke, he said he was going to buy me a new one, but never followed through on his constant offerings.

He told me to order the biggest TV on Amazon and he would reimburse me when he came home. That was the thing, he never exactly knew when he would be done. Always there was another issue that made him extend his contract. Then it was the talk of marriage. He assured me that he wanted to marry me and to get ready because he wanted to marry me as soon as he arrived.

I’ve never heard this man’s voice, and other than getting some pictures texted to me of a middle-aged man with salt and pepper hair, I had no idea who this man was. He kept asking where I lived, what I owned and how would our lives be. Then he asked me to forward some gift cards to Reilly, first for his birthday, then to help with the tuition.

Then my radar was fully up. The strong, professional woman I am came back and I realized I was being scammed. When I found this site, I couldn’t believe the similarities – names like Frank Williams, and Dr Frank Mark Williams; children in boarding schools in Europe whose mother died from cancer. My husband died of cancer!

So please, if it sounds to good to be true, you’re being scammed!

Positively Fake
by: Anonymous

Please don’t fall victim to a scammer like I did 2 years ago. He is fake. He is preying on you from all the angles.

I met a man 2 years ago online. He seemed so believable. He had a foreign accent, but I work in a career that I hear lots of accents. He was very intelligent, handsome and had perfect English and writing skills. We made plans to meet and something always came up like another business trip. He sent me lavish gifts that I learned some other person’s credit card paid for.

We talked for 8 months before he asked me for anything. After a year loosing 50k and my identity stolen as well as hacking my credit card info. I found out too late whose pictures I was sent was not him, but an American business man who a friend of mine knew through his business. At the time I was recently widowed and vulnerable.

I lost a lot of money, my great credit score and the trust of ever believing some one to date. I wised up after finding this site and several other YouTube stories.

Scammers are out there. All they want is our money. Doctors don’t need your money, solders don’t need your money nor do financial investors. Provide them no information about yourself. I understand the attention feels good, but run away from him, block him and save yourself heartache and your financial well being destroyed.

Read and listen to all of our stories. Please don’t become one of us who have been scammed. Be well.

Be safe.

Block him, you’re better than that.

You’ll soon fall for all the romance if you don’t, and this will be followed by a request to help him financially. These scammers are very good at romance and psychological pressure.

I have been contacted via Facebook by a man who says he is an orthopedic surgeon with NATO currently in Iraq. Says he is from Alabama and has been widowed for 5 years and has a 10 year old daughter.

He says he has 6 months left on a 12 million dollar contract and has a large home in Alabama plus two other homes in other states.

Says he wants to find true love. He wants to come home and open a medical hospital, then went on to say he is thinking a grocery store or baby department store.

Don't know if he's the same scammer but its very similar to my friend's experience. He went by the name Mike Chang Mihn from S. Korea, head UN doctor and Orthopedic surgeon. Claims to be in love with you and then asks you to be a business partner. Apparently he was quite believable at first but then it became fishy.

Anyway according to my friend his IG disappeared after she mistakenly vid-called him and ended it. I guess he was threatened by the call? Anyway good thing she never agreed to be his lover and be business partners. Damn I'll tell her about this so be careful y'all

Playing War on Words Game like Scrabble. One guy started chatting who is Widowed, Orthopedic Surgeon working with United Nations in Kabul with 1 14 yr old son in boarding school in UK. At first he said he was from Germany, then California. I've been single for a long time and details alert me. He didnt want to continue 'chatting' so why not do gmail. I only use outlook but did figure out how to get to my gmail. Then he suggests hangout that I never heard of and did not install.

I told him I was old enough to be his mother. He was ok with that and just enjoyed talking. Haven't got much past there as its only been about a week. I think I should cut this person off. Not worth the risk. I'm not going anywhere nor giving anyone money.

He used Raymond Robertson. Also noted the photo on gmail was different from War on Words.

Yes he’s a scammer. Tried to scam me about 1 year ago. He uses a photo of a Russian cardiologist.
He also called me using a fake video. He’s still around on Twitter even though I reported him. He also uses the name Anthoni Mathias again on Twitter but this time claimed to be a vet from LA stuck in China after he went to do animal vaccinations there !!

The stories are slowly getting a little different, but if they message you via social media and then move to hangouts it’s a scam. Stay away from these 2 (maybe the same person) as they can become very nasty and aggressive.

Just block him. You’re worth more.

I met a guy on Hinge who told me after 2 weeks of texting that he loved me and has found the one. He would not do a video call as he has video phobia. He was travelling to Germany and stuck there for work and will return to the US in a few months. We did phone call after I said I will not continue to text unless we speak on phone.

But he has accent. I asked and he said its Israeli because he lived there in his childhood. Asked me for money to pay rent for his daughter's apartment so that she is not embarrassed. He told me he will return me the money in one week.

Started with $2000.00, then $1300, then $700, then any amount I can help him with. No I did not send any money and ended the conversation that we will meet in person whenever he is back in US.

I dont know if he is Nigerian, but he still fits the criteria of a scammer from dating site.

He is very convincing by saying he has big houses in California near the beach and has a BMW. Later after three days, he asks for money to be transferred via bitcoin or blackcoin application as his son needs to get a mobile. He is not able to send the same to the USA.

Jason Francisco Diamond
by: Anonymous

Beware Of JASON FRANCISCO DIAMOND, Orthopedic Surgeon who lives in Los Angeles, CA. He works under the UN Army and has been deployed to Yemen. He told me that he was born in Brazil, but then his parents moved to the states (Red flag, if he's a doctor?) and he grew up in LA. He was widowed 5 years ago when his wife died in a car accident. He has a son, Michael, who is 8.

Michael thinks Jason should start to date and find someone who can make him smile again. This was all too good to be true, so I started checking out this FB account.

Now the real guy, was a white guy in his 30-40's and looked like a young doc or therapist of some sort. When I looked through his friends, they were ALL black. Nothing against that, but I would think he would have friends of rainbow colors. Isn't that what the United Nations is? I also looked at one of the videos that the real guy made. He was very American with no accent.


As I read through the comments, I started to notice that the words, spellings, etc, isn't what Americans would use. There were 6 things that I counted, that Americans wouldn't do.


So I called him. NO RESPONSE. 5 Seconds later, he called me. I said, "Hello?" He said,"Hey, how are you?" Remember I mentioned above, that I listened to a video that the real guy made? Well, this caller was African-American. That's all I needed to hear. I said, "I knew it!" He said, "You knew what?"

The more he talked, the more I could tell, he wasn't white. I said, "I knew you weren't the guy on the FB account!" "What? Why do you say that?" I said, " Because this is NOT THE VOICE ON THE VIDEO that he made!"

Click...he hung up on me!! Then, he had the nerve to message me and say, "I don't know what's wrong with you!" I reported him 2 times. Two hours later, that FB account was taken down. Thank goodness, this only lasted 1 day!

Be aware of Dr Diego Silva scammer
by: Anonymous

He would first contact you on Instagram with an account like "Instagrammer". Would start chatting every day a little bit more. His wife died 4 years ago and he has 2 kids (6 and 10). He is from an hospital in Lisbon, Portugal. He is a doctor working in Syria. We would then ask (without making it a formal request) to help a family that needs help and because you like him, you would be blind and send him money (too bad for him, the account he gave was wrong...).

Then he would ask you to buy 100$ iTunes to be able to call him (while it works perfectly fine on WhatsApp). When asking for pictures: he would send you some very neutral voice message in Portuguese and some videos of him doing sport and then, like me, you would know a friend that can use internet and find out that the pictures he sent me were the one of a real person, Doctor Diego Silva and that a scammer is using his identity to trap some fragile ladies, in need of attention.

Be aware, watch out !

Beware of Chris Tunis Wells and Kennedy Owens Wells
by: Anonymous

I recently started to play words with friends when Chris Tunis Wells messaged me. He asked me how everything in my area was going with covid-19 and how I was dealing with it financially. I immediately thought that was odd, because no one had ever messaged me before besides my close friends or relatives. He would ask me random questions and when I would ask him the same question back he would never answer me.

Red flag. He told me he was a soldier on a special recovery mission in Afghanistan. Whenever he would message me I would look up the time where he was supposedly at, and it would always be at hours when he should have been sleeping. When the game ended he said he wanted to keep communicating with me on Hangouts. I lied to him and told him I didn't have access to my email. He gave me his email and practically begged me to download the app.

He asked me for my email three times within 5 minutes. I looked him up through Facebook and found that the real Chris had been hacked and not to fall for any scams, he said he was still married and not on any social dating apps or games. I even went to his wife's page and she had the same post. I went back on words with Friends and blocked him and reported the page as an impersonation.

Not even 10 minutes later Kennedy Owens Wells decides to play a game with me and instantly he messages me. I blocked him immediately and reported him.

Ladies please don't fall for any scams and never give your email out to anyone you don't know, it's basically an invitation to get scammed.

Dexter Hansen Gemologist
by: Anonymous

He slipped in my DM Instagram about a week ago. Very nice, and complimented me. He apologized for approaching me, but said he was scrolling and saw my profile. He was impressed and had to reach-out. He asked if I was married. I immediately thanked him for the compliment, but was very curt and blew him off, saying I have zero time for games. He was agreeable through the process.

He reached again the next day to say hello and how was my day. I was short, and told him I'm not interested, I don't do penpals, and I don't need more friends. So he tried on the third day and explained himself and asked if we could talk to get to know each other a bit better. He only has good intentions. Since he kept coming back, and I have run into critters with the obvious BS I said ok, that's fair we can start with a conversation.

He was very polite, and kept his respectable space. We were messaging for the first couple days. I told him I don't do messaging, let talk. He resisted by saying he wasn't comfortable as yet, and suggested we go on Hangouts because he is in N.Cyprus on a contract and he speaks to his 24 year old daughter in Med school in Canada.

He did share a lot, anything I asked he was immediately forth coming. We had great conversations,and I continued to tell him I am extremely cautious, and careful of who I let in my personal space. He adamantly agreed. I resisted switching to hangouts, but I asked my kids was it ok, they said yes. So I finally got on Hangout. I saw that it was still a messaging options for phone and facetime.

Yesterday morning I asked him to send me a quick selfie, because I wanted to see who I was talking to, and laughed about avoiding catfishing. He immediately sent me a selfie. I was shocked the selfie was so perfect, he sent it immediately then a call came in from Turkey a minute later. I said wow, ok! He may be legit, and he is passing the litmus tests.

Its the same number that was in his contact on Instagram. Ok, he called, but why cant we continue talking daily on the phone. I am always suspect of these damn men. My kids told me to be nice, so I was trying to chill. We connected later that evening. He wrote this long message about he is retiring after this project, hes divorced 4 years ago. His daughter is grown, and he has worked extremely hard all his life and he is looking for balance, and to check off his bucket list, with a great lifetime companion.

He said that's why he reached out and messaged me because I was initially attractive, but when he looked through my page he was impressed with my character. He was constantly very attentive and asked me if he could send flowers to start and cement our friendship and start on working on a relationship.

I said that was cool, he never asked me for anything. He would check in about 2-3 times a day asking about my day and telling about his. It seemed for the most part legit!

BUT he was sooooo Fine! I asked why me out of all of the millions of women. He said I caught his eye. So I think with these scams, they are very sophisticated now. I was probably his project or file. I did my research, I googled him, his residence in NY(SOHO). I did also do a internal phone and photo check, but nothing suspicious came up. I had hoped I was wrong. I checked his Instagram, he had more followers than folks he was following. I even reached to someone that was following him to act like I was inquiring about if they had done business with him. They said no, but knew of him, not personally.

So there were no overt signs. I google everything and checked all social media. A couple of days after we started talking he stopped following a couple of women on his page. I was the only woman he was following. Everything seemed like a deserved dream come true, but the woman gut, just did not sit right.

"Why are we talking on the phone, if he is sending followers and he is still out of the country!" He said he found a florist online that would send me flowers. Some other red flags were that he would reach out specific times of the day or night, but we would be in the middle of a conversation and he would go MIA for a couple of hours. He would send a message saying sorry I fell asleep, I am so worn out after a day of work.

But then I questioned his timing because initially he said he walks and meditates about 4am before going into work. He said was a overseas director for some Mines in N. Cyprus. He said earlier that day he was coming from work to the hotel and would lay down and sleep. Sounded all fine. When I did question a couple of things he would try to spin it, and say I need to understand the time difference and he cant call me every hour of the day!

AhhhhKay!, I'm not 20 anymore, and have been played by enough narcissists to know the reverse Psychology game. So today I flat told him I don't do penpal as I originally said and we both agreed, and what is the issue with talking or face timing, that when he tries to divert and says I can't call you every hour of the day.

I told him the internet is flooded with Date Scammers, and I hope I am wrong. I have not heard back!

UNFN-BELIVEABLE! I'm glad I do not waiver from my core values, and not get sucked in by a mans BS! I have blocked and reported his page to Instagram. I also thought it was odd that as a professional, he did not have a Linkedin, and for his age, 60, he was not on Facebook.

Thats how my week went! #self-worth

Guy on Scrabble Go
by: Anonymous

I accepted a request to play with someone calling himself Chandler Ethan on Scrabble Go. His photo right away raised a red flag with me. Sure enough, he started trying to chat with me. I wrote him that my name is Lois Lane and I live in Gotham, New York (Superman's girlfriend and a reporter).

He didn't say anything about that, which told me he probably wasn't an American, though he said he lived in Miami, Florida. He asked me how the weather was "over there." Why would they say "over there?" I've had two guys (both scammers) ask the same thing, though they claimed to be in the US. Sounds like they were actually overseas! "Chandler" claimed he was on an oil rig "with his men 4,000 miles in the north sea of the Gulf of the Mexico."

The Gulf of Mexico is less than 2,000 miles in length and less than 1,000 in width, so that didn't ring true. Maybe he got the North Sea mixed up with the Gulf of Mexico? Anyway, the oil rig story was a dead giveaway of a scammer, as so many of them say they are on an oil rig if they aren't an "orthopedic surgeon" or an "engineer." His English was poor, too.

I deleted him after only a few chats. You can almost tell by the photos of themselves they post that they are probably a scammer--usually a photo of someone very good looking (and stolen from someone else's profile).

Don't fall for their lies, ladies! They usually start almost right away with questions like: "How are you today? What's your name? Are you married (or single)? Where are you playing from? Do you have kids? I just want to make friends. I hope you don't mind."

The real players on Scrabble or Words With Friends don't ask you these questions right away, and usually never!

Be aware and keep your radar up, ladies.

Peace to you all.

Doctor scammer
by: Anonymous

Name: Brian Hilton from USA, psychotherapist approx 46 years old, handsome man. Stated he was on a secret mission right around the time air traffic ceased due to covid 19. All his pictures look model like or he’s in a lab coat like a doctor. He asked to move to hangouts and started calling me baby and I love you blah blah.

Stated he was hacked on Facebook. His profile of Brian Hilton is gone from Facebook but he has an Instagram account still. His picture can also be found inactive profile on Facebook under Augustine Connal an orthopaedic for UN from Germany living in Washington.

Brian has asked for cards and money but when I said no I am poor and lost my job to covid he wanted my credit card info or banking info so he could send me money. Went on to say he loves me etc.

He’s been deleted and blocked so beware of this handsome man.

Stay safe

Scam Artist Dr. Somalia with son

I was talking to a man from Somalia and said that he is a doctor. He said that he has a 9 year old son at a boarding school in Italy. He was really pushy about me being his wife after only knowing him for 5 days. He would always say "Dear" and "What are you doing now".

Hello! Beware also of an andreawalker4455 in Instagram. And also this phone number: +1-210-806-3961. We were chatting there and in Whatsapp till he disappeared, after I made a joke about being "clingy".

Sent him photos of me and my husband and my parents. I also noticed that he was following all the people in my followers' list. I should have been more careful.

Also, he poses as working as a contracted orthopedic surgeon for the UN's military in Somalia, have widowed 4 years ago. And his parents died when he was young, has a 14 year's old son that doesn't live with him, calls you "dear". And is always asking "what are you doing right now?".

Dr Austin Brown profile barely has a thing and says he’s an orthopedic surgeon working In Afghanistan. Calls you "dearie" right off the bat. Tells you he has a 12 year old son in boarding school that the UN takes care of.

I let him message me a few times because I knew it was a scam as my profile is fairly new too. His profile looks odd and he asks to start talking on "hangout".

No thank you - block and delete. Don’t trust these liars ladies - please if they can’t even spell their occupation correctly and use full sentences they are not lonely surgeons looking for companionship in a far away county.

British Plastic Surgeon in Yemen
by: AngryFrog

OK Ladies, I am the latest victim of an online romance scam, and thankfully managed to save my skin in the nick of time. I was contacted on LinkedIn by a man going by the name of Dr. Lucas Fischer, currently doing volunteer work in Yemen for International Medical Corps.

He is passing himself off as a widower with a 12-year old son in boarding school in London and a mother in a home for the elderly. He has stolen the images and identity of Dr. Jason Diamond, the REAL and verified Dr. Diamond in Los Angeles, CA. But I only discovered this a couple of weeks later.

He has also been flagged on other sites under the name Franklin Göbel, passing himself off as being of German descent but born and raised in the UK.

British Doctor in Syria

I was just "friended" by a Dr. Stephen Welsh on Twitter. He then private messaged me and since I've worked as a medic in war and conflict zones, I was interested in his work. He however started asking me about my private life and wanted a photograph from me.

His conversation was curt and short. As soon as he realized that I had no interest in a personal relationship, he quickly posted: "thank you, speaks later"

The bad English and quality of interaction shows me that this is a scam.

I've been off this site for a while but I see the same thing is still going on with men claiming to be doctors working in war zones. His wife died, has a child in boarding school, needs money or itune cards etc. Ladies I've been through this and what ever you do please research these men as they are truly not who they say they are.

Go to the United Nations list of doctors to check to see if their names are on the list. Do reverse images to see if the photos they send are stolen and what ever you do, do not send them anything or give out any of your information and if you have been scammed report these men to FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov

So with that said stay safe and be smart and just so you know Hangouts is a scammer site take care of yourself.

When I asked him why he wants to connect as we don’t have mutual friends/colleagues he said " I got my own job. I just wanna make friend "

Sir not today. I google and then found this page and knew my suspicions were right, Douglas is a scammer. Messaged him back and let him know that I did some searching and that he is a scammer.

Hello ladies. This shameful misuse of US military credentials against good women is horrible. I hate that they tarnish the reputations of the good soldiers I have served.

It is not impossible that you meet a soldier in Iraq. It does happen, but very rarely. Every case I have researched for women on the internet has proven to be 100% false.

Almost all are poorly written profiles. We do not have soldiers stationed in places like China. and if the man claims to be a general, it is like being a city commissioner - they have a public profile you can verify online. If you don't find one, he isn't a real general.

Here is a link that I think you should check out it's called United Nations Fraud Alert page go to https://www.un.org as they have a lot of information on that page about scammers and never ever send any money to know one you don't know so I really hope this help you.

If it's too good to be true then it is and you can also do a background check on this person as well as a google reverse image if you have a photo of him and it will show other information you may not have on this guy and as always stay safe and aware of these men.

Why do these scammers think we women will not perform a check prior to it becoming serious. A few key callouts on how to check if the person impersonating the online dating man is a scammer:

1. Use Google's reverse image. Trust me it will tell you immediately if the guy is a scammer

2. When his profile does not add up. He says he is Malayam but has images of a European man in his profile

3. He says he cannot call you or FaceTime you. Always FaceTime ladies. If he can't thats immediately dodgy

4. He is too good to be true. He represents himself as someone who has gone through immense loss and suffering and is always present whenever you need him

5. He plays it safe by calling you generic names such as Baby, Sweetheart etc

Says he has a 15 year old son who is living in Florida. Bram says he is from Amsterdam and does speak Dutch.

However, he has used phrases that other scammers use (I am now fully aware of the scammers) and is asking for money to get home to his son and here to me. I have been investigating online and this is the first site I have found anything on him. I am so grateful because I was actually considering sending him the funds...not now!!

I recently ended up involved with a man I met through the Twoo website. He goes by the name of Gath Davis. Says he is a Orthopedic fellow of the United Nations and is stationed in Saudi Arabia. Similar to some of the comments here, he has asked me for cards and said he could not get them where he is stationed.

Recently asked me to help him to request a vacation so he could see me. He is very savvy at making you think he is a wonderful person who finally found the love of his life. This is a very long story that it’s like a soap opera. It has been almost impossible to find information on this individual. Now I know why.

They don’t use their real name and everything is a lie.

He’s a fraud! He’s not a Dr. nor does he have a kid in Boarding School. Ever wonder why they’re always doctors or engineers, widowed with a kid at boarding school?

He’s a Nigerian scammer working in groups to scam women.

Don’t fall for it. He’s one of the worst out there!

If you are communicating with an individual whose postal address is:
1 The Oaks
Clontarf Road
Dublin 3
Republic of Ireland

then you have been defrauded and your personal information is abused. The perpetrator had joined the vegetarian site in early 2000s, that accords with the time when the multiple staff at his workplace, Aer Lingus, had started human trafficking by means of their workplace resources such as uniforms and vehicles. That individual has also have strong connections in Guatemala, in which exports huge amount of illegal immigrants to North America and Europe.

Very so much scamming
by: Anonymous

Dear to all it may be concerned, I had been contacted by many men through Ourtimes.com and Tinder, then also on face book. Started on these sites and they wanted to move to hangouts.

All these men after weeks and months of contact ended up asking me for money. Itune cards, and I phones, and had a so called service Army man who wanted me to set up an banking account and so he could receive a kinship payment because his grandson wasn't 18 and couldn't receive. He was very persistent and sent me an account number with last 4 account to open it to show he had money in the account.

I have refused to send anything or set up anything. I wish I would have kept their names and photos. One of them said he was Dr. Roman Davis and spoke with him for a year, he finally asked for money and iTunes card. He was suppose to be in Yemen and a neurosurgeon and had called me several times. I asked for proof who he was but said he couldn't do that because he worked and set on the board of Drs. without boarders.

My step son had signed me up for dating sites and warned me to not ever send anything. A lot of I love You and spend the rest of your life with you, and a lot of them say they are engineers and travel the world for contracts then suddenly there is an emergency and they need something from you. I had kept pictures and profile and comments but my son told me to delete and don't talk with them again. I had wanted to send photos and their comments to Aarp because they had a report on scamming but I had already deleted all the information.

I had at least all but two people off the dating sites that contacted me was scamming, and I tried to get info so I could share to put a stop to it. So everyone on the dating sites at least 7 or more. I had gotten a new phone and just deleted all the so called phone numbers, had one contact me through facebook said he was Chris Morris from Springboat, Colorado. he Was in jelwery, but had typed for a while then lost contact and he said his account was hacked, then heard from him again but I could tell by the wording I wasn't typing with the same person.

The picture he sent was not the one on the website he sent me then he suddenly was robbed in Africa and he needed my help because banks closed or froze his account, but I told him to contact your business and had have them send you what you are asking for. I ask each one of these men to send me proof of who you are. Not one would send proof. There was a Larry Ortiz also from Fl. who went overseas but didn't allow enough money for shipping equipment to Africa so they charged him more than what he bid for but anyway he was on tinder site first then match.com with the same picture as Larry but he was now claiming to be Harry Ortiz. All I can say was I was glad my step son warned me ahead of time about the scamming.

It is a very sad world, each one after they asked me for help I would ask them how they sleep at night and Id pray for them. I think dating sites should verify anyone who is signing up for these sites and some how be held accountable also, just my thoughts.

Scam Dang Silva Orthopedic Surgeon
by: Anonymous

Watch for the name Dang Silva. Another Orthopedic Surgeon with the UN. Is very good! Tried to trip up with medical terminology and he even knew the correct Bowl name for a College football game. Answered immediately.

He's very patient, of course there could be many different people. Needed money to pay for a huge amount of money kept by a private company. Wife dead kid in boarding school. I asked how he paid for school? Since he had no money or credit card. No phone, was in Kabul.

Then needed 3,800.00 wired to a baby k in Texas. Couldn't find any person listed by the UN, no physician with that name! Met on WWF then said let's move to Hangouts.

Anyway he's still on Words and I have no way to let ladies know. Got mad when I said I don't have that kind of money. Watch out

Warning to all fans of Words with Friends that this scam is being replicated in the game's chat. I've had a swarm of hit-ups from men who will initiate games with no intention of doing much more than trying to chat and (further) trying to move the chat to DM.

One of the most recent went by the name of Bram Lucas, but I'm sure this is only one of hundreds of aliases. I now know that I can mute the Words chat (which is helpful), but I fear there are women out there who will fall victim to these scams.

Yahoo boy turned honest
by: Anonymous

I talked to a surgeon in Syria for a year and I knew he was a scammer. Always asked for money and always pledged his love for me. A widower with a son in California boarding school. I told him I was done playing his game and wouldn’t send money and didn’t want to play his game anymore. I disconnected myself from him on hangouts and didn’t answer my phone for two weeks.

Then he e mailed me and said he had a confession to make. So stupid me went back on hangouts and he told me he was a yahoo boy and he saw the light. He left to start a new life. He had two daughters and his girlfriend was with another yahoo boy. His sister took care of the girls and he couldn’t get work there because Nigeria is so poor. We started up another chat and he sent me pictures of him and his daughters. Then he started complaining about having no food and just a little card would save him blah blah.

It’s been two weeks now and I feel like a weight was lifted. There are so many signs that tell you he’s a scammer. Asking for money and bad grammar are two. Also crazy events like jail and the hospital always occurs. Also talking on hangouts or what’s app with the love and hearts and kisses. Always a widower or divorced from a-cheating wife and kids in boarding school. Usually a dr. or on an oil rig.

The sooner you dump them the better your life gets.

Orthopedic surgeon from Dublin, Ireland
by: Anonymous

Has anyone been contacted from Twitter by a Donald Hilton from Dublin, Ireland, an orthopedic surgeon? Says he has 2 kids, boy 17, girl 15. The boy goes to school in the United Kingdom. Donald is supposedly in Yemen for 2 yrs with the UN. Pretty sure it is a scam, but I have talked to this person just to feel out his conversation.

He wanted to pursue conversation on Hangouts, which I never use. But, I went along with it just to see what he had to say. Wife supposedly cheated on him, bankrupted his business etc. He is constantly trying to call me thru Hangouts or texting me.

When I unfollowed him on Twitter, he contacted me first, next thing I knew he unfollowed me. Then it showed up on Twitter he had 2 accounts, both of them the same.

by: Anonymous

Got contacted in FB Messenger by James Chandler who said he was an orthopedic surgeon living in Miami, 2 kids, no wife. Went to check his FB page and had some pictures of himself including his kids, but all the pictures were uploaded the same day and time!

Did a reverse image lookup of one of these pictures using Google image search engine and the guy came out to be a European-born named Peter Hajdu. It seems someone is using this poor guy's pictures for scamming.

Anyway, I noticed he was a scammer because of his poor grammar, and that he asked me to go to Hangouts to continue our conversation. I never use Hangouts and after some quick research, it seems that it is full of scammers for some reason.

Needless to say, I cut off communications and blocked this jerk.

For all you single women out there, beware of virtual dating.

I was approached on a game chat to begin with. He then sent me a link to Hangout. I chatted with him for a couple of days. I told him I was a recent widow. He told me that his wife died 5 years ago and that he had a 14 year old son in a boarding school in England. He said that he was from Spain and lived in Florida. He told me that he was an Orthopedic Surgeon working for the UN in Syria.

He kept complimenting me which eventually made me uncomfortable. I did receive photos of him. I checked Facebook and the name is the same and one of the photos is the same. When Some of his words were misspelled, I began to wonder if it was a real doctor. Most doctors are pretty smart.

So, I quit chatting, deleted Hangout and blocked him on the game. I felt really stupid for thinking even for just a couple of days that he was real.

Has anyone ever been hit on or contacted by a Paul Hudson? He sought me out on Twitter, saying that he was captivated by my profile. He says he is a US military orthopedic surgeon and an officer, currently based in Yemen. From Atlanta, GA. He seems polite and dignified, amd has never asked for any money. I would never send anyone money, period. He asked me to chat with him on Hangouts.

I have asked him to send me his military email address, and an additional photo. His twitter accounts looks legitimate, and he has not joined terribly recently.

I await his reply about my requests. We have only started an acquaintance, so I have not put myself in any great risk. Nor will I do so. I have read that all military personnel have an official email address, and it is no big deal to ask for it.

Nigerian Scam on Retired Lt. General Terry
by: Irene

Beware!! This scammer tries to impersonate a retired American Lt. general. Do not believe one word. His English is terrible. After a week, he will ask you for money to come to see you. He will claim to be in the military in Saudi Arabia or another middle eastern country and need you to contact the Pentagon so he can be relieved of duty to come visit you.

Number one: Common sense tells you generals' friends, relatives, significant others do not contact the Pentagon.

Secondly: You don't send a general money -- they got their own.

Thirdly: The Pentagon does not ask retired personnel to return to duty.

After I gave him enough rope to hang himself, he admitted to the scam and wanted to be my friend. I said enough was enough and blocked him from my friends on Facebook.

Currently talking through WWF with "Dr. John (Osborn) Hamilton". He sent a photo of him sitting in chair, arms crossed, slouched, big smile, white guy, dark hair, in army suit.
Next pic was a closeup selfie, unshaven, big round face, dark eyes. Said he’s 54. "Age is but a number". Called me only dear or honey, never by my name after the introduction.

Orthopedic surgeon which later turned into neurosurgery. Son, 10 yo, in boarding school in Texas. Wife Olivia died last in 2015 from a "ghastly" car accident. Loves all the same hobbies as I do. Loves me "to the moon and back". Goes to church. Wants a woman to love him and follow him wherever.

And much more, although he doesn’t like to answer tougher questions like "why is your son in boarding school". He made no sexual comments at all. Said he got worried about me when I didn’t respond more quickly. And on and on, he writes multiple times a day. He can’t call due to security rules on the Berlin base.

I can’t find him anywhere online.

This sounds like the typical scam. Wife died in a car accident, son in a coma (usually they are in boarding school somewhere), needs money through things like iTunes, etc. Coming to see you? I doubt it. They say they are coming to see you but things will keep happening that require you to send more and more money and the person will never arrive and your money will be gone.

Don't trust someone like this! He is just using your good heart to take your money. What kind of man does this? Please read about other women's experiences with these scammers on this site. There are other sites, too. Even the US government has put out warnings about these so-called "romance" scams. Get informed!

Dr Roman Amato
by: CatVas

Two months ago i was contacted on POF dating site by a guy who said he lives in Brooklyn New York, works for United Nations Development Program. After speaking for one week he told me that he received his next contract and that was to Yemen. He also said he is an orthopedic surgeon and has been working with UNDP since 1992.

He asked to keep in touch by email and hangouts. After we met on POF we chatted on Whatsapp and he phoned me a number of times. His English was very good, he said he was born in Italy and did his medical degree there but his mother was south African. His accent was bit hard to pick but sounded slightly African and not Italian. He was very believable, even sent me a scanned copy of his employment contract from United Nations Development Program. After 6 weeks of chatting, phone calls and emails and one video chat on hangouts where the quality was extremely bad and lasted for about 6 seconds he phoned me one morning to say he wanted to discuss something personal.

Last year with the help of a mentor he applied for a contract to supply a MASH hospital in Syria but because he works for UNPD he was not able to have his name on the contract and his mentor Alexander Filippo from Italy did for him. The story goes his mentor passed away from cancer in July 2018. The contract was fulfilled and everything paid for and the MASH set up in Syria. The contract being worth $37 million.

Because his friend passed away he was the next of kin and the lawyers had contacted him to collect his funds which were supposedly in a security vault in Ireland. He asked me would I be a beneficiary and that is was straight forward. UNDP could not know about this as he could be sued. He gave me the lawyers email address.

I went along with this request. I received an email saying they will start of the process of releasing the funds and the payment will be $8232.00 us dollars. I googled the name of the law firm and of course its fake, stolen images were used. I continued to chat to this person and spoke about my concerns with the fake lawyer. In the meantime he sent flowers, and I contacted inter flora and due to privacy they could not tell me who sent them. I no longer communicate with this person.

I have done a reverse image on the two photos i have of him and it returned many results of profiles on dating sites and even a community site called bikers. The fake site is http://allenandbraunchambers.org/lawyers.htm

I have contacted Go-daddy who host the site and asked them to take it down and have proved that its fake. Im very passionate about trying to prevent anyone falling victims to scams.

RE: Different game pic with your car
by: Anonymous

Person said to me "babe could you stand by your car and take a picture of you and your car so I know what you are driving." I said no. I felt like he was just collecting data. When you really meet me then you can see the vehicle that I drive. Has that ever happened to anyone. Whats the purpose?

Asking money is not the only aims of perpetrators in the SNS. Photo of your self and even your family, DOB, the schools you went, occupation, workplace, asset, real estate & salary (may not ask you directly) are great information who are involve in fraud (ID theft can be used for obtaining social security, passport, drivers license, credit card and bank account illegally)

I met an Irish pilot in the past, he flied to my city to meet me within a few weeks when we met in the Veggieconnection, the matching site for vegetarian. Friendship lasted for many years but I had contacts from the police (not the Irish Garda), and happened to learn that Aer Lingus,the airline the Irish pilot worked for, got two arrests who had involved in human trafficking by means of their workplace resources (uniforms, vehicles etc) for about a decade. The Irish investigators initially expected that more than 10 staff from Aer Lingus, but the the Irish police and prosecutors didn't go further investigation and the criminal lawsuit has finished by ordering guilty of two staff.

Culprits who actually transported hundreds of illegal immigrants from South Europe to Dublin Airport were never arrested and sent to the prison but I'm sure the personal information gathered through SNS and matching sites by the staff of Aer Lingus are still abused among the organized crime groups around the world.

Dating site Scammer
by: Anonymous

I met a guy and he said he was Dr Randy Berry Marcus who said he was working for the UN army at Baghdad on a contract. He said he was Italian born and he had a 12 year old daughter. I wasn't sure whether he was real or a scammer, however, I ensured that I made him I aware that I was aware of scammers who take people's monies.

I was hoping that he would see that he doesn't stand a chance if he came with that mentality and he would just give up and move on. Instead he kept on sending me pics and in some pics he was on his medical clothing in theatre. He was preparing to come to my country to be with me.
The pics were very convincing. The guy on the pics was Soo charming as I was almost ready to marry the guy when he gets to my country but some things were not making sense and I asked for a video call and he said they were not allowed to do video calls, and then I asked for a voice note and that's when I picked up a bit of
Nigerian accent which was slightly confusing. The funny thing is that on the weekend he was supposed to fly to my country then he disappeared and sadly I was hurt because I was convinced that he was real, and we had build a relationship chatting over some time.

My subconscious was telling me something yet I convinced myself that he was real. Ladies please be careful.

Dr Nelson Scott
by: R. Hoffman

I received a message through Pinterest from this Dr. Nelson Scott. Says he’s from Dallas Tx, a widower with a son living in his house in Dallas with an aunt. He’s an orthopedic surgeon on contract with the U.N. correctly in Yemen. He gave me a long list of places he’s been to get his medical degree, the United States, United Kingdom.

He’s now "I am also a consultant of neurosurgery and chief medical director of free medicine department, United Nations. As the chief medical doctor here in the camp i am a superior and i have more free time than the subordinates so i will have lot of time for you."

Oh geez what a crock of lies. I’ve asked questions as to why he’s used certain words when describing himself or what kind of woman he wants to meet. I had a feeling it was a scam as soon as I got the first messages and the subsequent chats.

Starting sending beautiful romantic videos and within 2 days he was in love with me and was insistent that I agree to be his fiancé immediately so when he got out in December we could be married & start our beautiful life together.

He was insistent to the point of being almost hateful when I said no. He refused to send me a video of himself. He misspelled the name of his prestigious medical school. Sentence structure was way off. I’m a RN and he couldn’t/wouldn’t answer any medical questions about what he was doing. He never asked for money but we only texted 4 days.

Wow!!! so glad I found this site!!!

John Carl - orthopedic surgeon for the UN, working in the far east. He sounded real at first, but now I started doubting because of too beautiful writing. I googled his name, no one comes up. Found him on OKCupid.com

The photo was cute, unconventional, but can't believe it is another scam. Unfortunately, I gave him my personal email - hopefully nothing much will come of it. Today I found two of his messages in spam and yes, right away he suggested us talking on Google hangouts or the phone - didn't give any and will add his address back to the spam. Thank you, everyone, for sharing.

This one pretends to have been born in San Francisco, raised by the mother, having a daughter living in Tokyo. The story is too similar to what everyone is describing here, so as much as I liked him in the profile picture, will not go further. I asked today for another photo of him as I'm curios now what he will be sending, if any.

Found my profile on POF. Profile on POF was Jason0800. Almost an identical story to the many I've read on here. An orthopedic surgeon working for the UN He says he is divorced, has 2 daughters ages 13 and 11 who are in boarding school in North Carolina. I've woke up the past two mornings to corny poems and romantic YouTube videos. He asked me to message him on Google Hangouts because he was too busy trying to check messages on POF.

The whole scenario fits perfectly with the adage "If it sounds to good to be true it s because it usually is." He has sent 4 different photos. 2 of him dressed in scrubs with co workers, 1 holding something blue in his hand that I can't identify and 1 with him standing in front of a pair of lips painted red, orange, yellow, green and blue with 2 teeth against a white paneled background. He has not yet asked for anything but information though I regret sending him any photos in return. So grateful to have found this site and for those who have previously contributed.

Dr Wilson Walker Scam artist
by: Anonymous

Got a friend request from a handsome man on Instagram. I asked how he knew me and he said, "I don’t but I saw your profile and my heart told me to contact you". Says he’s an Orthopedic/Plastic surgeon. He said he was born in Brazil but grew up in Miami and Houston. But he lived in Yemen now treating the wounded soldiers. The scary thing is if you google Wilson Walker there is a Dr in TN who is an orthopedic surgeon.

But some of these guys grammar was incorrect, and an Orthopedic Surgeon would be educated enough to know better. So I was on to him right away. So I started asking more questions and he continued to tell how he’s a widow. This man has over 10,000 followers on Instagram! Scary.

So then he asks me what my occupation was. So I told him I scan the internet looking for people who try to scam money from innocent people. I then said I would be reporting him. And his response was...you bastard...of course I’m going to delete you.

He says he has a daughter and just a couple days ago he said that his daughter got bit by a snake while playing in school but now the hospital bill is getting higher. I’ve asked him what hospital she’s in but for some reason he isn’t telling me. She is supposedly in Atlanta Georgia going to school there and since he is refusing to give me the name of the hospital I decided to call about 4 to 5 hospitals and ask if they have a Patient by the name of Laura Brooks they all said no and I still have more to call.

His name is Harry Brooks has anyone heard of him by chance?? Also does anyone know how to do google image search?? I’ve tried and I can’t seem to get it figured out. Thank you in advance.

Well I was scammed by Peter Galloway, been talking for a week. He is in army in yemen. Wife died, 2 kids. Has cars etc. Then after many talks, sweet verses, promising the moon and the stars their camp about 300km is attacked. Need to send email to general and ask he must leave. Either I am pregnant with his child or his grandma is sick that is taking care of his kids. I searched for army protocols and find that something is not right. Then got this email back from general: Hello Madam,

My name is (General Daren Hornbeck), i saw your request asking me to let your partner leave the camp.I do not have any power to keep any military operative who wishes to leave in time of like this. I am a leader of people, but you must go through all due process before your husband will be released to you.
ut first you have to provide me some important information about your partner for security and recognition purposes.

FIRST NAME;

MIDDLE NAME:

LAST NAME:

COUNTY :

HOME TOWN:

MILITARY CODE NUMBER:

SERVING COUNTRY:

I will tell you all that you need to do once you have provided this information for security purposes, thank you and have a good day ahead.
Regards,
GENERAL DAREN HORNBEC

Then I email the details he gave. Then another email return with amounts of money to pay for each month he wants leave...like $3500 for 1 month up to $7500 for 4 months. All of his accounts are frozen due to working in the army. Lol. I searched and it is not like it works. If there is emergency then the army pay, not you. But the army number is not correct. Can't find him in San Diego on people search. Got this site and read about the reverse image check...lol got him.

Please be careful. So I send him the link with all his names and photos on. Read other people's comments it helps! Thank you!

He really wanted to find a kind, honest woman to marry. He send me love poems and said how perfect I am and he said god sent me to him. I googled online and from the photos belong to Dr Ignacio Dallo, an orthopaedic surgeon in argentina with a happy family and an active facebook.

by: Anonymous

This man is using the photo of Doctor Fernando Gomes Pinto he is from Brazil very happily married and he is aware of the scammers using his photos. All these men who claim to be working for the UN are liars - wife died, child in boarding school, need money etc, so I would block and report them to the sites you meet them on as they are on there for one reason and that is to take your money.

I have been through this so I'am very cautious who I talk to now online and I check them out so just stay safe.

Dr David Gomez Morris fake profile
by: Anonymous

Dr David Gomez Morris this guy on insta messaged me the same story - works in Syria for UN, widower have 11 year old son in boarding in California. Thankfully to this site I googled him and it was actually a stolen profile of dr jay phil so told him that I know he’s using a fake profile. He still messages me to not search online and that he had to have fake profiles due to UN security reasons 🤣

Another story about Dickson_Mac_D_Owens
by: Anonymous

Two weeks ago, I blocked off someone who calls themselves Dickson Macdonald Owens on Instagram and Google. Claimed to be a military orthopaedic surgeon, widowed for 3 years and has a 10 year old daughter. I admit he did look like a hottie and has lots of female followers. Keeps fit and does post pictures of being "in action" in the operating theatres.

Accepted him on Instagram as I have a private account. Almost immediately I got a message about how awesome I looked, and what a beautiful face I have etc etc. I reminded him I have a husband.

My mistakes were to agree to go across to Hangouts, sent some photos of self and family to someone I thought was genuine, agreed to buy Steam Wallet card because I believed that he was using it to keep in contact with the kid while he has a month left before retiring from service in Afghanistan. He called to speak to me too, so there is a voice attached to the persona. I told him that he seemed to have a Middle Eastern twang to his accent, he told me that he'd been brought up in Mexico.

I reminded him constantly I was married, but he still kept up with the endearments and even sent me a shirtless pic one morning. It got so tiring (and boring) to constantly remind him that I do not like endearments from men I hardly know. Also his grammar in our text conversations do not seem consistent with someone from a medical profession. He even got me to chat to his "daughter" Karen (who he said was 10 - another commenter from June 27 was told she was 5).

When I finally blocked him (after a week of interaction), "Karen" sent me an email asking if I had "left" her dad. What???? I have constantly had to remind him there was no romantic connection there. He then sends me an email to plead with me not to block him and sent a picture of a gunshot wound to the leg.

Not his of course, but boy, what a pathetic move. As he was getting "desperate" to hold onto me, I could definitely see the discrepancies between his language and the claims to be a medical professional. His English language became appalling by that stage.

I have had to change my email address too so he would totally lose track of me. Glad to be rid of this one now. Loser!

Just type Dr. Danny Fair scammer UN orthopedic surgeon and you'll find all his other names on images.

Behind this is a guy from Nigeria or is actually a group and that is their job to earn money.

Has anyone ever been scammed by a Justin Kent. He supposedly is British. He lived in Texas at one time. He claims to be a doctor & that a group of them had to go to Syria where they were having trouble getting back into America.

He claims his wife died in a car accident & he has a teenage daughter who is in boarding school in either Switzerland or Sweden. He claims that the UN in California is working on their case. They supposedly were able to get out of Syria and are now in Australia. He speaks and writes a lot of poetry. He has contacted my sister on social media & I am very worried for her.

She said he asked him if he was scamming her & that he got very angry with her, said he wasn’t playing games with her and that if she thought he was then all communication between them is over. She has sent his teenage daughter money on her birthday & Christmas.

Very worried that my sister may get hurt by this man.

Carlos Rodriguez, UN Orthopedic Surgeon working for UN
by: Anonymous

Hi ladies, I almost got charmed into a real charming man, but thanks to this site, thank God nothing happened. Handsome about 60 saying that he will soon retire. He friended me on my private Instagram account, which I deleted him after a week of talking and realizing that he was just way too perfect to be true.

He said he was an Orthopedic surgeon working for the UN (United Nations) Peace Keeping Mission in Yemen and previously was in Syria. He was from Spain and coming to the States soon after he retired, which would be soon as he finds the love of his life. I wish this site would let us load photos, because he has many on Instagram.
He can talk you up a storm and is very polite and a gentleman. He’s the type of guy that everyone would love to bring back home and meet mom.

He said his parents passed away and that he was divorced with a 15 years old. Lives in Connecticut. Didn’t ask me for money, but loves to dance, all types of music, embroider (that was hilarious). Would take me to a dinner and the theater. He is trying I bet to get money from everyone.

He asked that we take the conversation through WhatsApp. Oh, he was also a Christian. Wants a polite, Christian woman.

I also ran a reverse lookup on his phone, and his phone has been disabled for months and it gave me a different name completely for that phone. Checked his profile on FB and gives me a different photo.

He starts out with poems and then tells you everything a woman wants to here. Boy was I a fool. I really fell in love with him. Claims he works for the army and he wants to get out of Yemen to come to us to be with me but he has to have 1500 to be able to get out and he needs me to send that to him. When I told him I didnt have that kind of money and couldn't get it, he got upset and said I didn't really love him and I was just playing him.

How I conned a con man!
by: Anonymous

Like everyone on here, I too was contacted by a gentleman on Instagram claiming to be a doctor in the military serving in Afghanistan. I knew him for maybe 10hrs before he asked me to purchase a Steam Wallet Card so that he would be able to keep chatting with me and his little daughter. He said he needed it because his phone was going to run out of minutes and he could use that card to purchase the minutes he needed.

Many red flags went up for me as both being in the military and a gamer, i knew what he was telling about serving in the military and the wallet card were false. I asked if i could do a background check, he said it would upset him if I did. I told him I would get him the card so he would keep chatting with me.

In the meantime I went to every online place I could find to do a background check to find out who this fool really was. I found a site where you can do a reverse image check on a photo and BOOM!! that site helped me find out this fool really was! It showed me him on Instagram under his "Real" name. He was from Nigeria, he owns a fitness center out there.

I contacted him and told him I purchased the card for him and that I was going to send him a picture of the code on the card. Instead I sent him 2 pictures I copied from the search website of him under his real name, he wrote back and said "Really" blocked me from Instagram, took down his page.

These guys are not smart, read every word they write, study it. You'll see the lies in their words, you can always catch them ( this guy did not write very well ).

Please keep an eye out for a guy that goes by the name MacDonald Dickson or dickson_mac_d_owens

Things that can help you unmask a scammer
by: Anonymous

I am a 59 year old woman who has been tried to cheat saying they are doctors working for the UN. I find this page very good and I would like to make my contribution.

I think the name is not important, because it can be changed very quickly. I think it's more important to know how they act to be able to decide if the person who is trying to talk to you is a scammer (almost always the case).

I am using Instagram and Facebook for a short time and so far they have contacted me twice.
I have not been asked for money because I've been only 2 days, wasting time. At first I believed him but there are some things that have made me suspect and that are repeated:

- They are medical doctors working for the UN in remote countries, for example Yemen and Afghanistan.
- They are very lonely, divorced, or widowed or separated and seek a woman for serious purposes.
- Either they have no family, or the family died or they have no contact with anyone.
- They ask to talk by whatsapp, leave facebook or instagram (they use stolen photos)
- The profile of instagram or facebook disappears, they erase it fast (so that they are not find in the scam). If you ask, they tell you any excuse.
- They ask many questions, even very specific ones. The last one told me that he had saved 700,000 € and that he wanted to retire and enjoy them, with me (!). At the same time he asked me how much I earned, and I did not tell him.
- They talk very weird, you can imagine they are using a translator. No grammar, nothing.
They say what they think a woman may want to hear. Many topics.

And most importantly, this page. Thanks to her I confirmed the scam.

67 year old mom being scammed
by: Anonymous

My 67 year old mom who is a widow is being scammed by a guy named George Williams but when I did a reverse look up on his picture via an App he is Steve Thompson from California. George claims he has a lot of money and is in the process of selling his solar business in England. He also is a widow and his wife died of cancer. He has a elderly mother in Palm Springs CA and a daughter who is recently engaged.

He told my mom that he needed money to pay for taxes on exporting solar equipment so my mom wired him $15k in September and another $42k because of tax evasion in January. He really wants to marry her and long story short my mom is so manipulated at this point she cut off her entire family.

She is in the process of selling her home. I am afraid she will lose everything and wanted to put the good word out there for anyone else who falls victim to this person.

The same or identical scammer
by: Finnish woman

This scammer went by the name Smith Anderson. I met him as a Tinder match on 6th June. He had a Tinder profile with two handsome photos. Said he was 53 years old, working as an orthopedic surgeon on an UN peacekeeping mission in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Told me he was born for a Finnish mother and American father, both parents now dead, widower with a 15-year-old daughter in a boarding school in Massachusetts. He sent several fake pictures of himself and his "daughter".

After I got fed up and suspicious because of his copy/paste stencil love verses and faulty writing and was warning him of blocking him after any further nonsense, he hit the target after only 9 days of messaging. He told that his group had been hit by a firing attack and 6 were killed and he himself was left with a bullet wound in his leg (sent even picture of a the thigh).

Further he claimed that the security company where their salaries and valuables were kept, had also been attacked and they were asked to move their valuables to safer locations. All the nonsense following this "terrible news" was so thick line, that I just cut him off with my despising regards.

Wanted to marry me after only 5-10 days of messaging. Asked what I are all the time. Sent pics of himself going to work out. Real smooth talker until you denied him or asked one to many questions and then he got very snarky. Son needed a new iPad asked for $1200 to be wired to NJ account. Had the son ask me if i cared about him or his dad or his studies I should send the money. Sent pics of his "son". Then asked if I would pose as his wife and send an email to a lawyer to get him out of Yemen and the attorney name is blancaxxxxxo@writeme.com.

The attorney needed $3200 plus to process the paperwork. I said I couldn't send the money and he got real nasty. He's asked for $200 in itunes cards today. I haven't responded. He has claimed it's so bad, he's stressed and hasn't eaten.

Don't i care...blah blah blah on yeah he has had 3 different phone numbers all with the 516 area code. I asked how many phones he had and he asked why. I said because you used 2 different phones in pics he sent. Is not happy if you are busy when he texts. Beware

Watch out for Derrick N Stewart for he is a scammer on Hangouts but removed his profile from Instagram once he was confronted about asking for money, gift cards. He claims to be a surgeon working in the army United Nations, single father, widow. He also claims he is waiting for retirement papers to be signed.

Do not fall for his lies and profession of love for you as its all part of the game. His grammar is horrible and claims he owes a home but Google it and it was sold. He may also claim he was injured. Do not believe him.

Betrayed by an UN surgeon
by: Italian woman

A few weeks ago a man sent me a message on match.com claiming he is in Afghanistan, as a doctor on a mission. He has a 22 year old son who is studying at college. He told me that he had been alone for a long time and now searched for love. He asked me to install hangouts so that we could continue to chat there. A wonderful charming man and I thougt why not. It's has been an intense and long conversation and we shared some photos to eachother. I was very careful in the beginning but with the time I started to open up to him.

A week ago he started to ask me for money. It sounded very strange and I was offended. I do not want to meet a man who is only interested in me for money. It is not worth it. I read on the internet that money questions is a big alarm for beeing scammed. I searched around on several websites and social media channels and eventually I found a guy who was very similar to the photos that he has sent to me.

I confronted him about it and he told me to go …. my self. So I said the same to him and now I want to warn other people about this scammer. When I saw this site it occurs to me that it is an extremely usual way of operating. How many people does these people fool? This needs to stop.

The real doctors name is RAFAEL CAMARGO and on his doctor site on facebook he has a lot of pictures.

I share the link here and to everyone who reads this: BE CAREFUL FOR GOD SAKE!!!

I was on Facebook. This guy popped in. Friend Request. I closed it out, opened it, closed it. Beautiful man. Grey hair. I never have accepted a request from a stranger. I did this time. He and I carried on great conversations. He was warm, kind, genuine. His picture got me. Then he called. He was definitely not the man in the picture, for two weeks I carried on beautiful music, beautiful words by hangouts, pictures. I was in love. But the voice made me suspicious. I dug for answers, talked to my banker, and I asked him if he needed anything. $2500.00.

He was supposed to be an Orthopedic Surgeon serving Syria, through Emory, in Atlanta. Beware, he goes under the name of Bram Lucas. You will never find a more handsome man. I had to bait him, hoping he would not want anything. But, I was sick when he bit.

It literally broke my heart. He kept insisting he was the real thing, but his story is so much like others I read. It was just yesterday I confronted him. Then I was the bad guy

Concerned Sister-in-law
by: Anonymous

My brother-in-law is being scammed by a "girl" who uses the profile picture of a DEAD porn star by the name of August Ames (reverse Google image search). She claims she is in CA and illegal about to be deported unless she can come up with $1,500. My BIL has sent her AT LEAST $3,000 that we KNOW OF. And he has epilepsy so he lives on government disability which isnt much.

Due to the seizures he isnt very smart and thus cant pick up on subtle things like how "she" types differently depending on who he is talking to. Pretty sure it's a group of people that tag team. He has moved in with his mom so as to have a cell phone bill and an internet bill only and the rest, I presume, is for "her."

HUGE EYEROLL. It makes me sick to my stomach and has my heart very heavy. It isnt fair to my almost 70 year old mother-in-law who also lives on very little disability to pay for increased electric, water usage, toiletries, laundry soap, groceries etc so he can send every dime to someone he only THINKS he knows.

Oh also, they've never talked on the phone. "She" claims that though she is 28 years old her older sister wont let her because they dont have long distance calling. LOL!!!! We have told him that they can do video calls through Facebook. He says her sister is mean and wont let her. Ummm. Weird! LOL!

Seriously not sure what can be done. He battles depression already too. He now says the family hates him and that we are liars. He even makes up lies to try and get money out of family to send to "her." So sad.

Bitcoin
by: Anonymous

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are not traceable. WesternUnion wire transfers and banking transfers have a paper trail with a receivers name or bank account accepting the transfer. iTunes cards and various Visa cards are not traceable, you just scratch off and supply the code and that is it. These forms of money can be used for taping up, purchasing items ( such as flowers for someone else), trading or increasing a persons wealth. Also men and woman both should be careful, do not let someone add you to their bank account if you never met and saw them in person.

If you are added to a bank account then you become responsible for the activities and on going’s of the account. For example : if bad checks are written you can be held responsible by law in the United States. Intelligent people create these fraud schemes. Its a shame they do not use their intelligence to better purposes.

Your guy sounds similar to the person I was talking to. I met him on Our Time. We talked for a couple of weeks then he had to leave the country to visit his mother in Finland. He did return only to leave again in a few weeks this time for a business trip. He got stuck away on business and didn’t have the funds to get back home.

When I didn’t do as he requested the texting and phone calls ended. I didn’t buy bitcoin, or wire money. We were supposed to meet but that fell through. We texted, emailed and talked on the phone for months. Video calls never worked properly and I could never see him.

My guy was born in the United States Massachusetts and then moved to Finland with his mother where he grew up. Married and moved back to the states in 2003 or 2006. He said he lost his wife to cancer, but he had no children.

Did you ever see a picture of your guy? Was he handsome with salt and pepper hair and a nice smile? We must be careful on the sites. I am sure there are nice genuine guys out there.

He has 2 grown daughters going to school for pharmacy and law. Is an engineer consultant with own company. After 4 days he announces he got a contract in Dubai to build a mall and has to leave right away and will contact me when he gets there which he does. He only took 32,000 cash with him and a density meter he has to buy is 37,800 and can't use his credit card because he forgot to tell his bank he was going out of the country and needs me to send him this 5,800 he is short. Which I did not do and got wise and told him to take a hike.

Goes by Brian Smith Hayford. Born in Jacksonville FL after father died in 1975 he moved with mother to Finland or so he says. Came back to states in 2003 with wife and 2 daughters.

Just another name to add to your list. Never asked for money but its only been a week.

I went on to SocialCatfish.com and did a reverse image search and found one of the pictures he sent me on a couple of European sites under the name Lucas Arthur. I asked him who Lucas Arthur was and he claimed that he has had issues in the past with his identity being used for these scams and to please report that account I found.

His wife died 5 years ago and he has an 8 yr old daughter who lives with a caregiver, no siblings and his mother died giving birth to him. He started a game with me on WWF and then started messaging me and shortly after he asked to chat in Hangout. Soon began to profess that I was an angel sent to him by God and that he is deeply in love with me. I have become a cynic with online romance so I questioned him on everything and made it very clear that I have nothing, therefore there is nothing for him to gain from me financially or property wise.

When I pointed out no such school exists in the UK he sends me a map screen shot of Harrow! I replied do you not know where your only child attends school. Claims it was an error! That’s a heck of an error!

Last summer, I was messaged by this person. He told me he was a civil engineer who worked for Alvin Butz Company in Allentown, Pa and Tishman company in NYC. We chatted online and he was moving the conversation a little quickly. He wanted to meet me at my home and I said no. I would meet him a public place. (I never gave him my address). I work in NYC and he said he would be in the city for business. We agreed to meet for lunch. Of course something came up and he had to leave the country for Cape Town, South Africa.

He messaged me while supposedly traveling and sent me pictures of inside airports. The next message I received was that he had landed and his luggage, laptop, money were all stolen from inside his suitcase from the cargo on the plane.

I told him no one ever stores their laptop and money in there suitcases. He insisted I send him money and a laptop so he could tend to his business. He became very nasty. I stopped all communication with him immediately. I did call Alvin Butz Company to verify his employment and he never worked for or with that company.

If you are from the Lehigh Valley and he seemed to know this entire area very well. Several months later different dating site, he reached out to me under the name of Freidrich Werner. And I blocked him again. He was the 3rd scammer I encountered last year.

The others were Robert Walsh on Match and Anthony Jones/ Thomas Cook on Our Time.

Sends lots of pics of hearts and flowers and complimentary words. he Found my mom on FB and started writing her on messenger. Claims a young daughter and he is a widower. Said he is 60. Blah blah blah. His FB has a few pics, a cat, a puppy, a girl and has two other foreign female friends showing up. Not his presumed nationality either as slavic or something.

Men who lie

Hear what I am saying as I got scammed for quite a bit of money. They are all liars and nothing they say is true. They are all from Nigeria and can be dangerous so you should block them and repost to GBI and get off of these dating sites because that’s we’re they are. They don’t look like they’re pictures because it’s not them. So think about this - would a surgical doctor or a surgeon that went to a good medical school need money from you. He should be giving you girls money if he is so wealthy with the kids in boarding school in Europe yet he can’t afford a itune card then they will say they got robbed on a very important mission and beat up.

Now think about this as I have friends who are doctors who do this and they don’t need money from you and they are paid very well and have very good safe accommodation with money and credit cards and can buy an airline ticket and also when doctors go overseas they have all the stuff in triplet because in case they lose something.

Oh they will also say they need money for the internet so they can speak to you if in fact you do chat it’s not the person who picture your looking at.

Ladies please be smart and don’t send pictures. I hope you take my words as true because I did lose money and I don’t want that to happen to someone else

RE:Capt. Sean Dunaway

With regard to Captain Sean Dunaway, has he given you a phone number (line and/or mobile) and residential address in Ireland and possibly the US?

If the home address in Dublin contains "Clontarf", then he is a fraudster. Your personal information is in danger and should contact authorities both in your local police& FBI and Garda (Irish police which is not reliable though).

Did he give you his name? I was also talking to a Military guy in Afghanistan who goes by the name of Captain Sean Dunaway. The pictures he sent was of a guy 5'10 spikey brown hair with blue eyes. He mentioned his wife and 2 kids died in a car accident his daughter Florence was in a boarding school over in Ireland.

Does that ring a bell? I am sorry you to had to go through that.

The name is the same as on the uniform because the scammer has stolen the real military man’s image/identity. Very common with these scammers. The majority do just that! I would block him.

A month ago I got into a chat with a military guy. He's widowed with a daughter. We been talking ever day, but I don't trust it. His photo's didn't come up when I search reverse image.

He's on a peacekeeping mission in Syria. In the pictures you can see that he uses the same name as on his uniform.

He asked me to send me his belongings. His uniform, his atm card, birth certificate. I don't really believe it, but you never know.
His name doesn't come up in all the scammers

POF
by: Anonymous

I joined the internet POF dating site. I met a guy named Frank Hartin. He claimed he was a Sargent in the military stationed in Germany and he was retiring in May of this year 2019 and needed an iTunes card to make a phone call.

I'm not going to lie to y'all. I got it for him to see if he was going to be true. When I bought the iTunes card from Walgreens, I called him and told him. He was so excited. I don't mind helping people. After I gave him the information about the card later on he turned around and asked me for $500.00.

I told him to stop calling me and I will not be able to help with nothing else. I know I probably was crazy I may even been stupid, but it was a lesson for me to try. He says he is a Sargeant Major in the Army. That's why I thought about helping him. I will be doing this kind of helping ever again. He is still in the military. I gave him that iTunes card out of the kindness and goodness of my heart and said if he is lying, God is going to get him.

My dream man
by: Miriam

Ladies, l can identify with many of you. I have been single for over 5 years, a woman of faith. Independent and positive. I too decided to go on one of these sites, meetme.com. So, l began chatting with a gentleman, well at least that's how he expressed himself. Brazilian, wow what a hunk. Said he was overseas and occupation, was petroleum engineer and was about to finish this contract to retire and come sell his 4 bedroom house to a smaller one for the perfect woman, ME.

This gets better, the initial story was that he lost his wife via a drunk driver. A 25 y/o daughter and two grandkids. We have been romancing, pics, 2 calls. However, his voice didn't seem to match the image, I felt. He spoke low, hoarse and a heavy accent, like Nigerian. After reading on this site, l know realize the accent, it wasn't a Portuguese accent. Anyway, we been romancing for 3 weeks now and the other day he asked about my type of work and said you must make huge,$$.

Immediately, that disappointed me, that's inappropriate to ask especially since we've never meet. He has taken his time about personal questions, but quick to romance me, saying he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. We spoke about meeting, relocating.

Then, I asked about his family. Supposedly, mom, daughter and grandkids live in one house in Brazil. His plans was to help his daughter with a business. How true all this can sound. Right ladies? Well I gave him my view about all this. My daughter decided to do research about online scams and alerted me. Now I decided to confront him politely by asking whether he is the real person in the pic and requested we video chat later today.

Initially he said he had a laptop and unable to video chat, so now he would borrow a cell from his crew workers to video chat me there. Which obviously is impossible. Intriguing story isn't it? How we woman begin to fall in 💘 with the image and their sweet persuasive words.

Honestly, I became emotional and easily falling for him. So like one lady said, if he is a real person he might be living his life and here we we're making plans to spend our lives with the man. I truly feel for all you woman and perhaps even men, we don't know that have fallen in these deceitful lies. However, I trust a loving God that loves us, knows what we need and will guide us to meet the genuine man of our dreams.

I hope my story has been helpful, forewarning and at the same time encouraging. There's someone out there that will value and honor us for who we are. This story might have a continuation, provided that there is a possibility of video chatting with the man in the pic. His name is Marco Maddison R
Telles who we can find in Google.

Guard your 💕 ladies.

My Scammer Story
by: Anonymous

The saddest thing that happened to me was the fact that I had no intention of ever giving my heart to another, but this guy put so much in my head, love letters, poems, sent actual Rose's, told me he loved me and couldnt wait to see me, well that never happened. I gave in and I gave him my heart and told him I'm in love with you, but now the problem is I'm still in love with him and the actual real person and he will never know, hes married with a beautiful wife and 2 beautiful daughters, so I sit here and hurt so bad as if I was back in high school.

The pain is real, the tears are real and my love is real, all this took place within 3 weeks and it has ended and even though I know hes a scammer I miss the poems, the love letters and him so much, but hes not real. I never heard his voice, he would post pictures of himself and with his daughters and he broke my heart and I wasn't even looking for love. I never accept friend requests but his was different, he was looking for someone who can give his daughters motherly love and pampering and wanted a Platonic companion which was fine with me, until he started after seeing me in videos and all of it changed. He lived where I live so I believed everything, I was vulnerable after losing my husband as he after losing his wife, he portrayed himself as an orthopaedic surgeon in Afganastan who wanted to come home, but money got involved and that's when suspicion took over me. I did face recognition on Google and found everything out, it wasn't the person in the picture, I tracked to Ghana got his IP address and reported to FBI, but it hurts so bad to love someone who doesn't even know you exist and it's taking a lot of time, so sorry for ranting

Syrian UN doctor
by: Anonymous

I was reviewing some old messages sent to me in Aug 2016, before deleting. I googled his name & it took me to this site. He noticed my FB profile picture & sent me a compliment using messenger. He represented himself as both a neurosurgeon & an orthopedic doctor, from New York working for UN in Syria, & his job was to look after US injured soldiers.

He said his name was Dr Martin Anthony, a widower whose wife had died at the time of the birth of his son. When that happened he was working in Iraq. I was suspicious because in his picture, he appeared quite young. At any rate he advised me that he was 53. He asked me for my info. I kept it vague because I had not joined any singles apps & assumed he had picked my photo because I was wearing a lab coat & stethescope.

We chatted a few times over a couple of days. He volunteered that he had a 15 year old daughter called Rose who was attending boarding school in his country (didn't divulge which was his country) under the care of UN government. He asked me to get in touch through whatsapp to chat at his New York #16467147677.

Hi. I seen your comment about this person. I have never heard of him and I have had the displeasure of a few scammers messaging me. He sounds like a fake and scammer, the stories here are similar.

No man who was genuine would ask someone he’d never met for money or even discus such if you’d never met.

Try reverse google his image. Or put his username details into social media sites. You may find he’s multiple identities.

I hope your mum listens to you.

Tell her to block him. He’s not worth the heartache she will suffer afterwards.

My mom joined match.com back in January and she quickly started talking to Roger Rees claiming to be divorced for 12 years, no kids, no siblings, and both parents have passed. He's originally from Ireland, but grew up in the UK. He was a mechanical engineer, but has since retired and is now a consultant. He claims to be 60 yrs old in good shape/health. I've only seen one picture and he has salt and pepper hair and beard. He says he's currently in Johannesburg, South Africa doing some consulting work.

My sister and I have been trying to tell my mom that this sounds like a total scam, but sadly she doesn't believe us. We're worried she's going to start sending him money. We don't think she has yet. He has some bogus story about having off-shore bank accounts in the Bahamas and can't get his money sent to him, so he is now stuck in South Africa.

Has anyone else encountered someone with this story? It would be very helpful to show my mom, so she'll start believing that this is actually a scam.

Anthony Jones/ Thomas Cook left the states st the end of July last year and has not been back to the states since due to his miscalculation in his financial project. I told him to reach out to his staff or persons he is close to in business to have them help him to get home back to the states. He said it would destroy his credibility and branding. I asked him to send me pictures of the area he was at.

He told me his camera was not working properly on his phone. There was always an excuse or something else that would pop up. Fees for storage for his gold, tariffs fees etc. When I told him that I couldn’t help him, that is when he became angry. He told me that I was lying to him , made up excuses why I couldn’t help him and that was not how a relationship should work.

I explained to him we did not have a relationship, we were only talking on line. He got mad and I haven’t heard from him in awhile. He is most likely targeting another person.

Anthony Jones portrays himself as Thomas Cook
by: Anonymous

I met Anthony Jones on Our Times dating site almost 1 year ago. He was charming, educated, charismatic, extensive traveler amongst my other things. We had a lot in common. Over several months , things did not add up. We texted and talked on the phone all the time. He would never send me recent pictures of himself, our video chats were too blurry to really see him. His home address he gave me was not correct when I verified it. He sent me massive flowers several times.

We made arrangements to meet and of course he had to leave the country on business, to return back in a week. Well that never happened, suddenly he got stuck in the country he went to do business in. He miscalculated his expenses for his gold purchase. He said he was in investments. Interesting enough originally he told me he had retire from the UN job as a catastrophic loss assessor for emergency funding to those in need.

Over the months things just didn’t make sense. I found google images search. I found he was using actual photos of American business man and speaker Thonas Cook. When confronted about this find, he said he was Anthony Jones and Thomas Cook was his name behind his business brand. He seem to know a lot of the going ons of Mr Cook. He eventually started to ask me to do things for him. He ordered a lap top and asked for it to be sent to a address in the states to be forwarded to him.

Then he wanted me to get him iPhones, laptops, and do wire transfers to various persons. I said no I wouldn’t do that. That is when he became very controlling and angry in his texts and talks on the phone. He still reached out to me and talked to me. He stopped asking for money for several months. I received flowers for Valentine’s Day and then that’s when the pressure for money began. I just said no I could not help him and he got mad. I dismissed him.

His description is : a very handsome man about 5ft 10 inches salt and pepper hair approximately 56 yrs old. Nice build 175-200 lbs. and occasionally wears glasses. Fashion conscious. Likes Genuine Gucci and Hermès. Wears Cartier love bracelets and other beaded bracelets along with a ring in his photos. No wedding band.

He told me his wife died of cancer. No children. He said they were married 13 years. I am a widow with no children, that was part of our common ground. Last time we texted he wanted me to send him bitcoin so he could pay his living expenses and come home to correct his financial situation and then go back to conclude his business.

I never sent him the bit coins. He wanted several thousand dollars. When reading about the posts about Sea , I was wondering if it could be a similar or same person changing up his profile. Hope this helps someone.

Be alert.

Sean doesn't sound narcissistic. In his writing, he never uses I am only am that is one of the signs the person is not from USA and is a scammer. Sean never asked me for money.

Sean was supposedly in Afghanistan going on secret mission trips. I believe a lot what he said except for the part when the banks over there had issues and he had to send me his money. I felt that was strange. I never went ahead with that or heard back from him.

Did Thomas send you any pictures of himself? Sean who is 5'10 with blue eyes, and spikey hair. A very attractive man. You can find the pictures on Fillipinoinlove, Like You, Wamaba, and Seniorcircles. The picture is described so differently in the profile. Saying this man Robert or whatever name he goes by has brown eyes and black hair meanwhile the guy has blue eyes and brown hair and he might even be married since I saw a ring on his finger.

Shamrock is the call sign for Aer Lingus where he works as a pilot. 787 should be his favorite aircraft which are Boeing. Aer Lingus does not fly Boeing any more, though.

He wanted to come To The United States to live in my state to establish a new life with his daughter Florence and myself and to get into Real Estate Properties or become a Counselor at a school for underprivilege kids.

It reminds me of John Richard Power on Veggieconnection (dating site), the Irish pilot who has just turned 49 last month. He tried to establish a relationship and trust by telling his dream to have an animal sanctuary for unfortunate animals after his retirement from commercial airline work. He loves some cities in the United States especially Seattle and Florida.

An unexpected surprise
by: Maryellen

I was on Christian Mingle Dating Site on Friday, March 8th when a message popped up saying Hey Pretty One I am closing my account since I found my partner on here, however my friend would be interested. He is a forty-nine year old widower and who is a gentle person.

This is his email address cptsean111@gmail.com

He would be happy to hear from you. I sent this man Sean an email. The very next day he sent a lengthy email. He goes by the name Sean Dunaway. He told me his wife and 2 kids died in a car accident over in UK. He has 1 remaining daughter Florence in a boarding school in Ireland. Florence was taken care by the Grandmother until she got sick and is now in a medical facility. Sean told me he met his wife in the military and she eventually retired to take care of the kids. He did say lovely things to me to proclaim his love so fast. Sending me songs. I was interested in him. I am widow.

Sean put in for an early retirement. Waiting for the paperwork to be processed might take 3 months or earlier. He wanted to come To The United States to live in my state to establish a new life with his daughter Florence and myself and to get into Real Estate Properties or become a Counselor at a school for underprivilege kids. The last email that I had received stated that he was going to send me 1 million six hundred dollars and for me to put the money into my account or open a safety deposit box or even keep at my place.

Take out fifty-thousand to open a business or wait until he comes to the States. Sean was explaining issues with the banks/storage company in Kabul, Afghanistan. I am so proud of myself that I didn't fall victim to his scam. I had sent him an email stating that I am not comfortable with this situation. I never heard from him again. I do feel bad for the solider he was impersonating.

The pictures he sent me of the soldier was about 5'10, short spikey blond hair shaved on the sides, and blue eyes. I forgot to mention the man Sean told he was born in Dublin, Ireland. I hope more women come forward with their stories.

Friends request
by: Anonymous

I just got one tonight from Alvin Jim Stilwell from Los Angeles, Ca formerly from Indiana, Pa. I don’t know him and he is not friends with anyone I know. For the past 3 weeks I have been getting lots of friend requests. Mostly US military.

I looked at one guys photos and they were all of pictures of foreign guys in their late teens or 20’s. Waving money. Hmmmm, I guess the scammer forgot to take their personal pictures off the site. They have to find other places to chat since google + and hangouts are shutting down early April. Lots of scammers out there. Don’t become a victim.

Captain Thomas
by: Anonymous sucked in

Thomas Surman using Captain Thomas Lindegaard Madsen’s pics. Contacted first on Word With Friends. I have been talking to him for months. The first one seemed legitimate & said he was from Pittsburgh. Went on Vacation to Germany but contact was patchy. Then he accepted a new contract and contact stopped for about 10 days then Thomas 2 took over.

Phone was supposedly stolen and could I help him get his money from Crystal Securities.Could I write a letter saying I are his Beneficiary so I can get my money when I come to Australia. I fell for it and had to pay $2500 USD registration fee. ($3,524.75) which I insisted go to an Australian a/c. A dodgy one named CBA a/c.. Crystal insisted that 3K didn’t go through so Thomas 2 rang up distraught once again. You have to repay the 3K and you’ll get the other 3K back. I fell for it again and again an Australian a/c.

Then Crystal said we need the original deposit slip but T2 didn’t have it so could I pay $1500!for a new one. I refused. This went on for some weeks and then Crystal had a new email address ufor the ‘missing money' & sent me an email wanting all my personal details which I refused & videos of the money being counted but in the meantime I got a message from Thomas 1 saying his phone had been stolen so I had 2 of them.

I found out that the real Captain Thomas is gay & is married to his man. I asked T2 & he said he was changing to being straight lol and if I hadn’t been scammed I would have laughed but I was still trying to get my money back. T2 & T1 disappear and then reappeared to help me with return of the money which will never happen. I am still in contact and it is a very clever scam known as a 419 & obviously run by a call centre with a multitude of Thomases.

Watch out for anyone purporting to be a ships captain as these people are diabolical & have an answer for everything.

Watch out for Robert Sean. Operating on Twitter and Instagram where he follows over 6000 women @robertsean922.

Said he’s in construction, and lives in Florida but will soon be going to Nigeria to re build some damaged buildings. He called me and he’s Nigerian.

Block him, he likes to message via hangouts and in some conversations he say NM. I asked what this was and his response was a miss type. However I feel this is Nigerian scammers passing the conversation on to the next man.

Engineer James Marsh Phillips working in Nigeria
by: Anonymous

He calls himself an engineer. Tragedy struck him since he was little as his dad was killed in New Zealand when he was only 10. Then moved to US with mom and went to the University of Houston where he graduated from. He has a son and no wife. Sons mom was a terrible woman that would only do drugs and many other men. Currently working on a project in Nigeria for the US Government.

Asked to start a chat using goggle hangouts. Writes long love letters that make him appear madly in love. After some email traffic then starts asking for gift cards from Walmart? Red flag was his strong accent and when I asked he said he had to downgrade his English due to all the traveling he has been doing. And this was not even on a dating app it was Instagram.

Dr. Frank Werner
by: Anonymous

Met on Words with Friends. Claimed to be an orthopedic surgeon working for the UN stationed in Kabul, Afghanistan. He claimed to be German, moved to California as a teenager, went to medical school in Texas, moved to Atlanta Georgia with his wife who passed away 2 years ago. He has a daughter in boarding school while he is on duty. He owns a large house in Georgia but wants to spend a month with me to meet me, my family, and friends. He wants to marry me and have a mother for his daughter Annie. He writes beautiful, long emails professing his love and excitement for coming home in a few weeks. He has a very consistent schedule and checks in with me at the same times every day.

When I first discovered the scam I told him he sounds like a scammer because they all speak the same way. Very inconsistent grammar and soo many typos. He told me maybe it is the Talibans who are somehow screening and copying our conversations.

I’ve asked why his name does not show up on any medical licensing boards where he lived and he said as a UN doctor they are at risk for releasing sensitive information because of the Talibans so their names do not appear.

He insists on explaining everything when he finally comes home since he is very restricted in Kabul.

Early on I used tineye to search the photos he sent me and didn’t come up with anything. Just now I used google reverse image search and discovered he is using the photos of Dr. Hamilton Janquera! A Portuguese doc who posts videos on YouTube!

I have made it clear that I have no money to offer. But he continues to chat with me and asks for photos, even inappropriate photos. Luckily I never did so but I would like to warn everyone that they might use your photos to lure other unsuspecting victims. So just do not send anything!

I feel very manipulated and betrayed. I am tempted to find out what he plans to do when the time comes for him to come home but I also don’t want to waste any more time on this bozo.

Met him on Our Time dating site. Messaged on site for 2 months, then he gave me his number and said to call him. He sounded very nice. He was from my state. We talked for a month or so , He wanted to meet me and I wasn't ready. Then he had to leave go visit his mother in Finland. When away he called and messaged me as well as phone calls.

He returned home. We texted and talked all the time. Tried to video call, it always failed on his end. We planned to meet in nyc., but then he had to leave on business to Finland. We never met and he cancelled the arrangements in nyc.

I verified all the reservations at the restaurants. They were all cancelled by him. Anthony Jones says he is from Pittsburgh. Had a home in DC, Florida, Nyc. Lots more to this story so if any of this founds familiar I would like to hear your version / story.

This guy could be a commercial airline pilot. An Irish airman who had been on the dating site since early 2000s and left a year & half ago (I reported to the site but he might rejoined with other name). He sent me dozens of postcards from around the world, especially from the US cities (his favorite place in the state were Seattle and Florida).

Peter Ernest and Antony Wilson Scamners
by: Anonymous

They found me on Instagram almost at the same time. So I communicated with both. Ernest is a widower and living with daughter. I asked him to send a picture of him with his daughter but he didn't. He is a marine engineer from Florida and the company sent him to Nigeria, where he lost his wallet with card and of course money and he asked me money because he has to pay his workers and continue work for a month.

I said no. So many mistakes when we're chatting, lying and didn't remember what he said to me. When I tried to call him he didn't accept and said there is no cam on his phone.

Other one is Antony. First time he wrote hi my name is Antonio. He is a usa soldier deployed in Afghanistan with peace keeping mission. He is a orphan. Parents died in a car accident. In about a month he said he was suddenly deployed to Nigeria. Here its a bad place and he wants to leave that country. He asked me for IiTunes but I said I never heard about it.

So I was surprised two of my men were in the same country at the same time. I will complain on Instagram about them.

Dr. Jeffery A B Dickson Fake Instagram Account
by: Anonymous

A person going by the name of Dr. Jeffery A B Dickson contacted me on Instagram. He had posted photos of a handsome, young, white physician in white coat and in a clinic and OR and posing with what looked to be African villagers and children. He claimed to be an Orthopedic surgeon working in Ghana.

Said he had gone through a difficult divorce and left his practice in Ames, Iowa to go on a mission to Africa to help children because he never had any of his own. Claimed both his parents had died in a "ghastly car accident" when he was 8 and he was raised by his aunt and uncle. I searched medical licenses with the Iowa Board of Medicine and there was no such name.

Then he claimed he has gone to residency at UCSF and still had a California license. I searched the Medical Board of California and no such name. I confronted him with that and then told him I'd searched all Orthopedic Surgeons registered with the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and found no such name.

He became indignant and accused me of having trust issues. Then he sent me a photo of him jogging down a wide, city avenue lined with palm trees and tried to tell me it was in Ames, IA. I laughed and told him I'd grown up in the midwest and assured him that no palm trees grew in the midwest.

He then told me I just hadn't been to all parts of Ames. Then he again accused me of having trust issues and said he could not risk getting hurt again. LOLOLOL!!

He told me he was blocking me. I blocked him, for sure.

I’m totally humiliated! I started chatting with a Mexican surgeon from California on Instagram. I made it clear I was married from the beginning and thought he was just interested in my paintings that I posted for sale. Next thing I know we are chatting about various things of common interest and he says he is totally into me. I am taken in. He claims to be an orthopedic surgeon working in the UN. He has 2 sons in US with nanny and wife divorced him but she’s dead now. No records of him anywhere.

I found pictures of him he stole of Dr. Neville from Botched!!! I called him out on it and he actually claimed they went to medical school together and that he stole his identity and that he went so far as to have plastic surgery to look like him! Can you believe that bunch of crap!!! Worse yet, I was upset but started to buy into it because he was so upset telling me the story.

I never gave him any money but he did want to send me a suitcase of money by a UN diplomat so I could transfer the money to him. Right! Not! Said it was his money owed to him for his UN contract and he needed it to pay back supplies that he used on children he helped that should have been used on soldiers to the tune of $39k. When I wouldn’t accept the suitcase, he wanted me to transfer cash via credit card and he would pay me back but claimed it wasn’t my money anyway. What??? Wanted me to increase my credit card limit so I could do this.

I said no. Then he wanted Amazon cards for phone units and Google cards. It just goes on and on and I said no. He got mad and said he was upset because I wouldn’t support him.

Oh well. I’m not stupid!!

Civil Engineer based in Syria
by: Anonymous

A friend of mine got involved with a guy she just met through a dating/marriage site. He claimed to be a Civil Engineer working for the UN from Canada but based in Syria. As per the site, the uncle created the profile looking for a suitable marriage partner for his nephew and gave details of the guy in question and asks the girl to contact him. According to the guy his parents had died in a car accident and he was brought up by his uncle.

My friend and the guy chatted for a while and whenever my the friend asked if they could talk on the phone his only response was that there were in a war zone and are not allowed to make any unencrypted calls or use cameras there.

Also told my friend that he has completed his existing project so that he could come and meet her. Applied for his leave and paid for the Visa arrangements but asked my friend to pay for his tickets (USD 1500)

This did not go well with my friend so we did a background check including doing an online search on the persons whereabouts and tracking the phone number provided. That's when we found out about the online dating scams. Luckily she did not transfer any money and when my friend told the guy that she was unable to arrange for the cash the guy got abusive (verbal abuse) and was showing his tantrums- now his phone is unreachable and his profiles on all social media have been removed.

Please beware these scammers can go to any length to take out money from any of us vulnerable ladies
