by: Karen

I sent the scum bag 5800.00 of hard earned money and he wanted more. With all the beautiful words and songs he sent I fell in love with him. My daughter let me in that he was a scammer going by the name Frank Allen. He said he was on an oil platform and got hurt and needed money and his account was frozen.

I sent money then he wanted more for a data base and I sent more. He was coming home to me. I got screwed out of all my money. I feel so stupid to fall for such crap. I know better. They are very good at what they do.

Addicted to the soft words
by: Anonymous

Over a year of talking, phone calls, just closeness. Totally believable to the tune of 53k to get him and his equipment off the rig to home in Atlanta. Now needing 13000 more, I said no, I'm tapped out, he totally turned on me, all my fault and he's still there, and its my fault he's losing his relationship with his son, that my actions are driving him insane. I think he's had help there.

What's wrong with me, I know he's a scammer but I'm crying over this man. I don't know who can help me, I thought I was strong but this hurts big. How do I move on? My money's gone the bit coin route.

So watch out, his picture is at the top of this page.

Oil rig scammer says he's in Denmark
by: Anonymous

Told me he was Frank Allen from Exonmobile on a rig in Denmark. He video chatted to show me that it was him cause I had seen other pictures under that name. Such sweet talk until I refused to send 500.00 so he could get an extra data base then he dropped me after he asked me to marry him.

Now I see him on other web sites under other names.

BEWARE OF SCAMMERS ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WANT YOUR MONEY

He thought he had me!
by: Anonymous

He told me his name was Jack Anderson - he was a widower for 5 years and was 62 with a 15 year old daughter named Lisa. His story was he was working on an oil rig in Scotland and his daughter is in boarding school in Austin, Texas.

He started out asking me a bunch of questions that I answered with lies and then by the time we talked it was hours (what can I say - I was amused). I was his "true love and soulmate" Today I looked him up on this website and found him quickly - I wanted to pat myself on the back for guessing correctly.

When I told him I wanted him to send me a selfie of him holding up a piece of paper with my name on it in front of his chest he said I should send him one showing him how I wanted it - I told him what I said was self explanatory but he didn’t respond anymore.

I guess I found and lost my soulmate within 48 hours!!😂😂

This guy scammed me out of 800.00 in gift cards. He told me he was 58, had a daughter named Hannah and that his wife had died of cancer.

He gave the name of Roy Gavin and said he lives in Springfield, Il.

He goes by Les Watson
by: Anonymous

I have been talking to him for a couple of months. He goes by the name of Les Watson. He wants money to get off the rig to go back to the UK to fix his checking account. He has been asking for money for a month now and I have only sent him $100.00.

This time he gets mad because I won’t send him anything. He wants in my Facebook account. I won’t give him it and that makes him mad. He says everything to make you feel sorry for him.

I found pictures on Facebook and he is now using the name Franklyn Anderson on Facebook

FBI agent
by: Anonymous DS

The latest he appeared as an FBI agent Thomas Cooper. He even sent me a pic of him post op with a rotator cuff repair and stated he was injured while trying to get into the village were Goodness was located.

He stated that he needed cards to track a Nigerian Scammer. I did fall for the first scammer who presented as a love interest and they wanted more money and I did not have it available and they went in another direction.

He is presenting himself as Billy Murphy or Murphy Billy. This might be an old profile.
The other account that the scammers are working out of is a Jeria Goodness (FB) oil rig owner engineer. Doing a start up in another country.

Then this guy comes along as an FBI agent and says he is going to arrest the scammer Goodness. The two scammers work as a team.

I am sure I am in the process of being sold to the highest bidder as Mr. Goodness has scammed my identity. The pictures that were used were of a very nice business man and I notified him.

Please do not hesitate to load email
thomascooperth@gmail.com
JeriaGoodness92@gmail.com

both are this scammer mentioned in the above comments Deepi Deepi. I hope they get him as they got me for 20,000.00

Boy do I feel stupid but I trusted the picture and fell head over heels.

Scammed the scammer
by: Anonymous

This guy says he is Louis Enzo and is divorced with a grown son who is a pharmacist! He says he lives in Philadelphia. He says he has 500,000 in the bank along with owning a lot of different properties. He is suppose to be working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and tried to get me to buy him steam gift cards… then I found a picture on the scammer site from Nigeria.

Then he got some guy to contact me and say he was his son and say that the FBI was looking into getting his picture off the site. The man also sent me a picture of a hand that was cut and bleeding. The man that his dad did this to himself and wanted to die because he was so upset.

Theses scammers will go to great lengths to scam women. But I am very smart and I gave him no money at all.

Soft hearted scammer
by: Anonymous

I am involved with this man, or was until I saw this picture. He has been so kind to me, a shoulder for me in a tough relationship. Yes, I loaned him 5k months ago but weather prevented him leaving the ship. Now he wants to borrow 23k to get him and equipment off the rig.

I'm so sad, if he were real he'd be darn near perfect. He said his I.D was hacked and the FBI got involved to get his name back. He does work as a contract engineer on a drill ship.


Any chance he's telling the truth???

Met on ScrabbleGo, and said he was a pipeline welder from Boston. Sent me videos of what he was working on. Cannot remember how, but I caught on. Has pretty good written English for chatting. Feel bad for the real guy.

He’s still on ScrabbleGo. SmithOwen and Owen S. Or any combo really for future. He’s slick.

Got him on Facebook and Hangout
by: Anonymous

Hey, you guys I have got this sucker RIGHT NOW. He is on Hangout under the name Michael Thomas a/k/a Deepi Deepi. His email is : michaelthomas7432@gmail.com

After I read all your comments I went back to him and dropped some hints and he DOESN'T KNOW WHAT I COULD BE TALKING ABOUT! He says he is a widower with a 14 yr. old daughter who is in private school in New York. That's where he says he lives but he is now on an oil rig off the coast of Norway. This guy really gets around.

Since he didn't know anything about scammers, I sent another message all sweet and asking if we can get married before I start to show and that I hope it isn't twins! (I am 82).

Maybe I can keep him confused until you get to him.

GOOD LUCK! HE DIDN'T GET ANY OF MY MONEY!

John Smith/Scott/John Karl
by: Anonymous

The person in the photo is innocent of any crime. His Facebook account was hacked. He appeared as John Smith. Oil rig worker. Wife and son killed in a car crash. To cut a long story short, he turned out to be a man in Nigeria by the name of Ayo. Was after 2,000$ but got a flea in his ear instead!

While on WWF2 as John Smith, he also appeared as Scott V, which, unless they were twins, was impossible!

More recently he has appeared as John Karl. I confronted this person and told him that I knew the real person in the photo, and asked him why he was using someone else’s photo. He said he found it on his phone and because they look alike he used it! I’m just waiting for the next one now.

Heart Broken
by: Agnes

Hi I posted earlier about Frank William if that’s Is his Name, apparently from Brazil. Please note since last posting, Before Blocking him on Hangouts, I had the privilege of letting Frank William know exactly how I felt and feel towards him. Especially for using the profile and photos of a genuine guy Kelly Hettinga. I’d like to know why Kelly’s photos are still on this scammers website, as I feel they should be removed as it’s so undignified and unfair to Kelly and his family.

Scammed me too!
by: Anonymous

Hello, he was Warren Stefono for me from Pelham Alabama, wife was killed in car wreck 3 years ago. One son who he loved so much, lol. He wanted a favor for me to send him a Steam Card. I asked how much and he was only wanting $100 but I had already decided he was a scammer as soon as he wanted a favor.

I didn't send anything but I do see how women could fall for this. They give you all the compliments and talk so sweet when we are lonely. He even face timed me one night. I did notice he kept rubbing his head and I really couldn't hardly understand him.

Gives me the creeps now. He was going to retire the end of January. He was from Italy. lol I am glad I didn't fall for it. I will say, the attention was nice and it would have been easy to get caught up.

He is also Fredrick Anderson
by: Badmomcat

The photos all of us are posting actually belong to a real guy named Kelly Hettinga who has notified police that his FB photos and Instagram photos and videos have been hacked and stolen.

The guy using all of these aliases or guys, told me he is a widower after 30 years old marriage and his wife died of leukemia in Minnesota. He said his 20 yr old daughter lives in Atlanta with her grandma.

He pretends he is a civil engineer working off the Scotland coast in the North Sea and furnished a fake award certificate from KCA Deutag where he said he won a $13 million contract. (and they beg for funds for fees, satellite phone minutes, etc. he also begs for your bank account to transfer investor bitcoins.

He is a smooth liar and charming scammer!!! He actually sent me a fake video he made using Kelly’s real video and dubbed the voice into German accent.

He uses this email on Google Hangouts.:

Is a smooth talker. What's a relationship very quickly like in hours. Uses oil rig worker as a cover. Told me that he was working on a presentation for a $5 Million deal with the company he works for. Said his birthday was 9/24 said is was 64.

Wants to know all about your life but does not tell you about much of his. Used a dog as a lure. Says he lives in Strongsville Ohio. Works on Oil rig "Montrose" off the shore of Scotland. Met him on Words with Friends. Did not finish playing the game and wanted to chat on Hang outs.

Says he's a widower working on an oil rig off the coast of Scotland in the North sea. He has a daughter back in the states. Quickly loves you and directs you to hangout, then asks for bitcoin, Steam cards, iTunes cards, Apple cards and then large sums of money. The money is to keep the network going to text and talk, then a medical problem, then warming jackets, then damaged equipment, and sends copies of fake bank account, fake flight tickets to come see you.

Vows he will pay every penny back, of course gets mad when you stop dishing out cash and disappears. Very smooth operator. Will steal your heart and your money!

His name for me was Allman grey. Said he was from Bulgaria and lives in California. His face book account is still up. Gave me this sob story that he was robbed and needed his documents before he could start his job on rig. And it cost a lot but it was to be paid back. Then he needed gift cards for his daughters birthday. It went on and on and i never knew it could do so much damage, and I have a lot of healing to do and so much dept to pay back. Beware!
