Nigerian Tinder Scam

I met "David" on Tinder. David Bustamante claimed to be from Dallas and stationed in Nigeria with the army. He told me he wanted to get married and loved me after two days of talking. He said that he needed money for a wireless subscription in order to continue chatting with me. He said no one else would help him.


I did not send the money but wanted to warn others of this scammer.

“David Baker”
by: Anonymous

Well, I fell for it. "David" claimed to be an only child of deceased parents. He said he was a Sergeant in the US Army based out of Minneapolis MN. After a day, he started saying babe at the end of every sentence. He also had terrible grammar while I didn’t think about because I’m terrible with spellcheck. Anyway, David claimed he was sent out on a top secret mission over in Sub-Saharan Africa.

He said he lost his care pack which has his phone, wallet, and everything else and needed me to send him money so he could survive. Or he would starve until he found help. If it weren’t for this site and all the other comments I may have fallen for it. When they say it’s too good to be true, usually it means it is.

Matched with this guy today, says he's an orphan and is in the US Army. He has been single a year and ended his last relationship because his ex cheated while he was on deployment. His absolutely terrible English was the first thing that tipped me off, plus I come from a military family, and some of the things he was trying to say make absolutely no sense.

For example, he just came back from a deployment, and he is about to retire, but he just had briefings for deployment today and will find out Monday if he is going to deploy again? He also tried to start the conversation with an exchange of some personal information, such as my full name, age, where I was born.

Never give out that information to someone you meet online.

Thought something was up.
by: Anonymous

I too have fallen to a scam and wish to share my thoughts. We met on hinge. He seemed to be a very nice quiet type who was very understandable. But, after a while, he stopped talking to me. Though I did fall for his charm and his strange love, he was happy.

Called himself a devoted Christian. I fell for his shyness. But, knew something was up when he started asking me for money to help with an aunt that was going to lose her house. I said I couldnt help, explained my reasons super clear, but he said you didn’t love me if you can’t loan me money. If you do, we will stay together. Since you can’t, I had to have a good friend help me out. No thanks to you.

I wish whoever is doing this, be put in jail. And the real guy in the photos be able to finally live in peace.

by: Anonymous

I can't believe I fell into this person's conversation, too good to be true, I'm glad I was lucky to be alerted by a friend, 20 days talking, it's sad to know there are people like that, I hope God has mercy on him.

To me he said he was Michael Esteban Sosa

Tinder scam it is
by: Anonymous

I found this guy from Belgium and he looked really cute and withing two days he told he loves me and wants to marry me and he would do anything to get me. On the fourth day he tells me he got me a gift and wants to send it to me so he keeps asking my address. I haven't yet seen this guy when I talk about video calling as he says there's a technical issue in the area so then I asked to send his video but he hasn't yet.

I dont know what to do so please help

He's back at it. He told me he loved me after 2 days of knowing me. I thought it was odd so I looked him up and found this page. Wow. I'm very disappointed that this person continues to lie with no shame. Sounds like someone with a demonic spirit. And to think we were talking about our spiritual beliefs about God and marriage. Pretty sad how people can just lie about who they are. I feel bad for the person he is pretending to be. I do not know the persons real name.

He's going by Sosa Fika on Kik. And he was using the same profile on Facebook before it got shut down. Who's the guy in the pics that he keeps using? Yeah, the same old story about serving in Africa in the US Army and wanting money to pay for connection and to buy food. And about his mother and his sister and oh his 4-year-old son, blah, blah.

Just another dirt bag
by: Anonymous

I felt so sorry for the real guy they are hurting and yes I have been talking to him for over 2 months. I have talked to his sister and his so called comanander who told me he was going on a bad mission tomorrow and if he did not come back he loved me.

I am so happy I found this page first.

Goodbye whoever you are and I hope one day you have to get out and work your butt off

He goes by other names
by: Atlanta Gal

He goes by Marcos, Sosa Hernandez, and Anderson. Here's his FAKE instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sosa_hernandez_/

This person has no life because they even created fake accounts to tag his buddy.

"Marcos" tried asking for my WhatsApp number after only exchanging 4 messages. I never replied back because I don't give my number out that fast. Then low and behold, I see Anderson pop up on my feed with the same face but different photos, but this time with a fake instagram.

Nigerian Tinder Scam
by: Cynthia

Good for you and do not send them any 💰money.

I hope someday soon all the women of the world will get the message that those guys only want your money and that is all that want.

Do not support their expensive style or even pay their mortgage notes as we have own rent to pay.
