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???

Stolen pic, said he was pipeline welder earlier in year
by: Anonymous

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.:

fredanderson.fre@gmail.com.

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!

He is the best scammer!
by: Anonymous

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!
