Oil Rig engineer for dating scam

by Nancy
(USA)

I had a fun time with my scammer. We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat.

His profile was pretty good. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. Broken English. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him.

He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy.

Every morning there was a heart poem.

Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled!

Nigeria, Spain, London, Dublin Ireland.

I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him. That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. I showed him a copy of his ip trace..he said I would die - be killed.

The picture he posted was awsome. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him.

I'm talking to a 62 year old who works on a rig, German company, Hamburg and lives in Texas, told me he is widower, one son 16, boarding school. When I ask questions about him, every time the same response, tells me how wonderful, sweet Blabla.

He is not what I look for in a man, and seems to me he is a scammer. Will tell him tomorrow and what I think of him

Reverse image search

I was looking up one of my scammers' pics on Google and discovered he had changed his profile and cover pics on Twitter. He went from using Dennis Margulies' pics to using pics with nobody in them. I still don't know who the real person behind that first profile pic is.

To the person impersonating the real estate agent, I'm onto you.

Offshore Oil Rig - Engineer
by: Anonymous

I was approached on Instagram by someone named Travis Krueger Gary. Also on an offshore platform in the Black Sea off the Coast of Georgia. He claims to be German/American and is a widow with 2 son’s being cared for by a caregiver in Bonn, Germany. Claims his mother Elisabeth is in a nursing home with congestive heart failure due to the fact that he is not allowed to come home because he owes taxes to the Georgian Minister of Finance.

His caregiver ended up also being a Nigerian scammer. He even sent me a fake bank account with 4.2 million euros with the vtbbank of Georgia.

He also sent me stolen pics and professed his undying love for me and even called our meeting a Devine intervention by God.

He would call me on occasions from 347-690-8170 which is a service provided by Bandwidth out of New York. He sent me a fake Drivers Licence with a stolen pic. I had the DL checked out by the Rochester, New York DMV. Definitely fake. This Travis Gary claimed to live at 32 Gillette Street, Rochester, NY.

That was also fake. Everything was fake except for the fact that he wanted my money. His email address: travisgary09@gmail.com. Supposed Birthday is February 3, 1970. He also wanted me to send funds by Bitcoin which these scammers know is the least traceable transaction. Claims his lawyer was Mikheil Baqandize from the country of Georgia. I have copies of the fake bank account, and other documents if they are needed.

Travis Krueger Gary Scammer has also been reported to the FBI. I agree with the lady who thought having a site with the stolen pics, phone numbers and email address etc, is a great idea. Travis has also threatened my life and I advised him that I am not afraid of his threats and Law Enforcement would be waiting for him and his many cohorts.

For more information,you may email me atrhrf58@gmail.com.

Baruch Shalev
by: Anonymous

I was contacted by a Baruch Shalev in July 2018, but the email address was from robertoschmit1234@gmail.com. He saw my pic on LinkedIn and just wanted to reach out to me. I ignored him, but 4 months later he sent me another email, this time it was from his own gmail account. This time I decided to write back since this was the second time he tried to contact me. He seemed very nice, told me a lot about himself, he owned his own company, Baruch Oil Services.

He used to live in California with his now ex-wife and daughter. He was divorced 5 years ago because his wife was cheating, then she and his daughter moved back to the UK, he then moved to Stamford, CT. He said he grew up in Europe and is Jewish American. He is a sub sea contractor. We started off emailing, but he was pretty insistent on texting so we could communicate better since he always had his phone with him and wasn't at his computer all the time.

We started texting after I obtained a VoIP # because I didn't want to give him my real number. He was so full of compliments and started calling me darling, honey, baby, my love and sweetheart. He professed his love to me everyday and wanted to meet me to see if we had chemistry in person. This guy is good at making you feel like you are the most important person in the world.

A week and a half ago, he was granted a 4 week contract with Exxon Mobil to repair underwater pipelines. He went to Spain a week ago and once he arrived on the oil rig platform, he called me from his cell to let me know he arrived safely. Then texted me a another number where I could call him since his phone did not have international roaming yet, which he told me before he left he was going to contact his provider to place him on international roaming so we could communicate every day while he was gone. We texted for 3 days, he kept saying he was trying to contact his provider so he could have roaming so we could talk and he wanted me to call him on this other number he gave me, but I was hesitant and never would.

On the 4th day, he asked me for an iTunes card because apparently they said he needed to buy a gift card to be able to activate his phone to start working there and asked me if I would go to the store to purchase one for him. I refused, he got mad and said I didn't believe in him and he was disappointed in me. He then said I was an idiot and used profanity. He told me he was going to retire in a year.

He is 57 years old and said he is budgeting $3 million to build his retirement home.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would love to hear your story.

Met this LOSER on Coffee Meets Bagel. Fell in love with me within a matter of 5 days. SUPPOSEDLY is short $15,000 in order to get his CRUDE OIL shipment sent from Turkey to Georgia. Begged me for help. Told him several times NO. No one can help him. He's desperate. He invested $1.1 million into this deal. Supposedly lives in Monterey Park, CA.

A few pics sent here and there. No contact since I REFUSED to help him. I get a text from him tonight stating the following:

"I'll be publishing your nude on internet your kids and family will probably see it when it goes viral Pay $5000 or face the consequences

P.S this is not a threat

Now before you text me all insult think about how this nudes could damages your dignity before your friends and family and be cAreful of your next word - if I don't hear from after 24hrspictures will leak on the ineternet watch out!!!"

WORD FOR WORD EXACTLY HOW HE SENT IT.

Then DEMANDS I go to a BITCOIN atm to send the $5,000 to him in "TURKEY". (Yet his IP address PINGED in New York)

I asked him how I could guarantee the "photos" wouldn't be leaked. HE says "I am man of my word, you send the Bitcoin I destroy the photos".

YEAH RIGHT (as I've read, he'll extort more and more).

He sends me 2 "nude" shots with an OBVIOUS CUT AND PASTE of PART of my neck and partial face. He won't answer if this is what he does for a living. And NO I'm not going to pay his extortion threat. Since what I am seeing is a copy and paste of my face (or partial of it) onto a nude body--this is HOW these lowlifes get what they want.

Scare and threat tactics.

So just a forewarning---ADAM PALUMBO--he'll pop up again on either Coffee Meets Bagel or Match.com as he said he had looked at previously.

He is scamming my elderly mother. Harry Krakowski, says he is 68 and doing a big oil rig job off the coast of Virginia, which is weird since we don’t drill offshore US in Atlantic! Hasn’t asked for money yet. Widowed 6 years ago, one daughter age 18 who lives with aunt in Belfast. Says graduated from Irish university but poor English writing.

Lie after lie, obviously photoshopped drivers license. Calls weird hours, says no internet so can’t skype. Keeps telling my mom he will come when this job done, so he can retire to be with her.

Marine Engineer Scammer
by: Anonymous

I got to know this guy through OKC, introduced himself as Christian Duong, an Aussie residing in Houston. Widower with a 13 years old daughter. Just less than a week into our chat, professed his love to me. Sent me a greeting each morning and also tried to chat for hours over hangout. Has the cheek to ask me to call him over Hangout and he certainly sounded weird and with a funny accent.

I have had my share of scammers through different dating sites and my instinct told me he is a fake. I ran an image search but nothing on him but the photo he used for his daughter turns out to belong to somebody else.

I am from the other side of the world so I would like to thank those who have shared their experiences here.

It would be better if we can upload those scammer's photos because they used so many different names and its difficult to pin them down.

He sent a video and pictures of himself which my mother said he was gorgeous looking but to me it was too good to be true. When she spoke to him she said he sounded so different not American at all and more your African. He said his name was Antonio William, so if you heard of that name repost thank you.

Scammed by Henry Lai
by: silly me

Thanks ladies for all the warning. I almost fell for this trap. His name is Henry Lai, and he is a rig engineer. He said, he is a rig engineer and that this is his first time big project investment of 15.2 millions euros. His project is in Sicily, Italy. He is widower, he lost his wife and his only son 4 years ago in a car accident and he live in San Jose, CA. On his FB, he is 54 and he does looks good. He told me that his mother is from Scotland and his father is HK Chinese. His father is also a rig engineer, but got killed of a rig oil station explosion in Texas, and his mother died from a heart attack after a year.

His wife is cheating him with his best friend, and he won't divorce his wife, because he loves his wife too much. Make the story short, after we talked for 11 days, he told me that he is falling in love of me. He said, he is limited with networks.

Yesterday, finally his patience is up after 30 days and he is asking for money of 4500 euro, because after the explosion of his oil rig station, he needs that money to fix the drilling or plumbing to work. I gave him hope, and said: Sure, I can help you so forward me the account numbers:

Finansbank A.S, account name: Christian Emiator; acct #: 76923393; IBAN: TR30 0011- 100000000076 923393; SWIFT code: FNNBTRISXXX; bank address: beylikduzu sanayi;

Beneficiary address: iskenderpasa mahallesi, horhor caddesi, no 31 daire: 4 aksaray fatih, fatih, istanbul.

He said it is the companys machine. I am laughing about to him as what ever your name is, your game is over and I believe one thing is true about you are 7 feet and your size is XXL.
He was mad or that was his game:

He said: Will you insult me now? Because I asked for your help? You just called me a scam oh God, you know what thank you so much, okay. But I will promise you one thing. I will make sure you regret and apologize for making fun of me if you leave me I know I will surely get passed this I believe in God and I swear it I will look for you and tell you to your face I made it without your help. How would you insult me and call me a liar? because you don't want to help me? I would tell you if deep down in your heart you think I am a liar go ahead and block me???

I said: Sure I will and how dare you bring the name of God! His response back to me: My God I don't believe this is happening. I promise you no matter how hard I will find you, Mark my face. You will regret calling me a liar. I swear it on my late families grave.

My response was: hahaha! sure!- he responds I am not your darling and you are not worth being a wife! Before I blocked him he sent me a love! That is so funny.

Honestly in the beginning I thought really, he was my soul mate, because we had so many similar comments, but after I asked about his childhood life, and how are his American co-workers he said, he never worked with Americans! And he knew I was still married, and want to start a relationship with me, while he hates women cheating on their husband!

Only one thing I couldn't figure out. He does send one of his pictures lately of his boat trip. It is the same person on his Facebook! I believe his job is a scammer and the funny part is before I blocked him, he sent me a love heart!

Scammer name?
by: Anonymous

Have any of you dealt with a Frank Melker, originally from Sweden. Claims to have an elderly widowed mother & a 15 years old daughter named Erika or Erica. Private oil engineer supposedly moved to CA. Has an accent & shared password & ID to a locked 7 digit bank account. How to tell a scammer from the real thing? Good looking 52-54 years guy with a trimmed beard, mustache & salt n pepper hair with brown eyes. Wants me to meet daughter & Mother.

Red flags; asked for Amazon ITunes card & recently plane ticket, hotel expense $ as he’s supposedly stuck in Monaco after trouble with the propeller & then the crane to the rig that he says he owns. Claims he does high security work.

I suspect he’s a CATFISH/Scammer. Need proof.
Any body care to advise how to catch this guy red handed?

Please tell you grandmother to block him immediately. I was scammed by a guy on an oil rig who had fake pictures gave me a line of crap and I gave him $150.000.00. All of my savings and at 76 years of age I had to go back to work. He had me buy an airline ticket to meet me so he could give me my money back and he was not there.

These people are fakes and do not give a dam about you. When I look back I can see how he set me up. Does anyone know if the FBI goes after these people?

BITCOIN TRANSACTIONS....
by: Debbie, continued.....

I managed to wire transfer the equivalent of $530,718.63 that were converted into Bitcoins between September 17 and December 12, 2018.

I used Match.com as my first online dating experience ever, starting 9.2.2018 and when I reported how I was scammed, they asked for the user name used, which I provided. I spoke first with the call center in Costa Rica, the employee said she could not release any info to me, only the FBI. I asked her to answer a yes or no question which was: Is the actual name associated with who set up the Match account the same as the profile name. She said they were different. No surprise.

I then called the Texas HQ of Match and another employee confirmed that my comments had been recorded by the Costa Rica call center and then mentioned that the account had been involuntarily 'deactivated' on 9.29.2018 due to 'suspicious' activity reported by another member. I asked did that imply 'asking for money'? She said yes.

MATCH DID NOT CONTACT ANYONE WHO HAD BEEN EXCHANGING COMMUNICATION WITH THIS ACCOUNT USING THE MATCH SITE.

I suspect the Match employees disclosed more than they should, but it was enough. I am meeting with a bankruptcy attorney tomorrow followed with a criminal attorney regarding Match.com failure to let members know about the illegal activity of an 'active' member.

HAS ANYONE EVER ENCOUNTERED A SIMILAR SITUATION WITH MATCH.COM?

Are you familiar with Bitcoins?
by: Debbie

Has anyone heard of scammers requesting wire transfers to be deposited into the Bitcoinofamerica bank account in Chicago? The transferred dollars are received and converted into Bitcoins and re-deposited into various Bitcoin Addresses and wallets for further distribution. It is a complicated system.

PLEASE, IF ANY OF YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED A SCAMMER MENTIONING BITCOINS PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I have not read anything to date, that mentions Bitcoins. Bitcoins are a type of digital currency that is independent of any sort of banking regulations.

My scammer's name was Christopher Bjorn Ragnaar, from Norway. Same story - wife died of cancer, one child in Belgium, getting ready to retire, ran out of funds to complete multi-million contract he was awarded to fix an oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. If anyone in his 'group' is reading this, there are a lot of loose ends with the Bitcoin Reports I ran prior to the 'address' aka account, being deactivated. The FBI is involved.

Ladies, please call me if you have any information at:424.228.2176 Debbie

Don't send money
by: Lynn

I was scammed a year ago by a so called oil rig private contractor. He called himself Emmanuel Stephen. Same story as all the rest - widow with two kids staying with caregiver. Fell in love with him and ignored the red flags until I found this site and another lady answered my post, same man same story as he was giving me.

I was devastated but I'm so thankful for this site. We had met on Instagram and now all I get are request from scammers, they are all over Instagram. At least I know what to look for. Check their profile and who is following them and if you see young African men following them that's a dead give away.

Also look on Utube you will see many of the Same faces used over and over but not always, Just remember that men on oil rigs don't need your money for anything no matter what they say. I was recently contacted by a man called Richard Boyce who claimed he'd been on rig for 6 months and would be on 2 more months, but I knew that was a lie so I blocked him.

All are liars but very good st what the do.

Stay away from them please for your own good.

I had put on pictures and names of a James E. that he was using all kinds of names but do not know what happened to them. He was a good looking guy, very smooth talking, wanted iTunes cards a lot and wanted to fix his Rig all the time. Something was always going wrong on his rig. But as I found out the company fixes them all and then they take it out of their contract because they are not going to let them be broke down and lose money.

Had Blondish hair with the frown lines between his eyes just above the nose. James Eubanks. Tom Erol, Eubanks James. He went by many names. The one I put on of new submission was put somewhere else and I cannot find it and there was more pictures and names he uses.

Asking for money,
by: Anonymous

I just want to say, I have had two over the last year, one was Charles Bothmann, on an oil rig, equipment broke, got seized at the Canadian border, needed to pay taxes, couldn’t access his account, came up with most of the money from a friend. Always wanted me to pay $1500.00, blah blah. Promised to pay me back when he was off the water. He never got off the water, wanted me to pay the bank money so I could get my money back. I fell in love with him so bad, when he couldn’t get any more money out of me he got angry and told me I didn’t love him anymore, I was selfish after pawning my jewelry and giving him $9000.00

The second one is in the UK, London. Builds houses, got his passport confiscated because of owing taxes, then he got hit by a car, now he’s in the hospital. This is such bs. They come up with any excuses. They will never meet with you.
They will do anything, say anything, make you feel like your the only love of their life.

Please don’t listen to them, don’t send money. We need to block them. Report them and stop talking to them. They are low life’s. Nothing but scammers.

We all need to stop them. Shut them down.

Asking me for money
by: Anonymous

I have been talking to this guy from USA and he connected with me on LinkedIn in October 2018. He is an Italian guy with an 11-year old son, his wife died 5-years ago. Cut a long story short he won a multi million pound contract and he flew put to the location in December, on his arrival at the rig he found out that he needed to pay more tax than he thought and he was short by 40k, so up to today he has managed to chip away at this money by getting loans and borrowing from family and friends, but he is now short of $2,200 and the deadline is today so he can start drilling.

He has begged me, pleaded with me for this and because I would not lend it he blocked me on whatsapp last night, and I was devastated this guy has made me fall in love with him 'hook, line and sinker'

Right now he says he is in the sick bay of the rig and apparently a representative of the company is coming today about this tax money.

I am at a loss as to what to do, so has anyone experienced this type of story?

Very persistent. Always questioning when the gift cards will be sent.

One was using the picture of an American General Mattis who just resigned from the Trump Administration. Very recognizable. I reported him as impersonation.

I mentioned earlier that it was a quiet week on Words - until tonight. Williams Grey (steinberg grey wilford) playing since November 12, 2018 from United Kingdom contacted me tonight. He said hello and I said hi. He said so nice talking with you my dear, nice to meet you my dear, how are you doing my dear. Wasn't in the mood to play his game.

So I told him enough with the dear, it's nauseating. I asked if he was an oil rig engineer, widowed with a kid in boarding school and if he needed itunes cards. lol

I said there is a website dedicated to you morons and I was going to add his name to the scammer list, called him a nigerian POS and he blocked me. LOL.

Be careful, once your scammer gets to England as there will be a problem with posting his retirement papers, he’ll get stuck, he will need help. That’s probably when he’ll ask for money to help him. Always an excuse not to be able to get home, one excuse after another, that’s how they string you along.

They are nothing but scamming scum. Get rid of him now.

Block and delete. Good luck.

Two encounters. Beware of Paul Abram. Says he is from Turin, Italy and lives in Austin Texas. Professes his Love daily.Than asks for ITunes cards, small amounts. Than after a month, looses his phone and all his work he has done and now needs $500 in iTunes cards to re-do his work. One dilemma after another.

Also, another one to look out for is David Kruger. One crisis after another. I got caught up with this guy and lost about $6000. He says he is from Belgium, but lives in Alabama.

Beware, these guys are sweet talkers!!

I am being romanced by a scammer. He tells me he is a widower with a 13 year old daughter. He is charming and attentive sending me emails throughout the day professing his deep love for me. He works on an oil rig and is getting ready to "round" his contract. I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. He told me he is retiring and has to go to England to post retirement papers after which he is going to Indiana to get his daughter.

I think this is a dangerous game he is playing. Says he was born in Brazil and has an accent. Do I mind? Not until a man with a Nigerian accent called my cell phone. Dear went to Baby. Not sure what’s next. He has never asked for anything and said he never will.

I will just tell him no if he ever does.

I've never heard of anyone with such a name, but I've come across someone like him last month. Told me his wife died a few years ago and has a son in boarding school, but didn't say where in the world this boarding school his son was studying at. Oh, and this gets more interesting: The e-mail address he gave me was alauren@gmail.com. SMH. Finally, last month, I unfollowed him because I was creeped out.

It is a scam. They are getting the money from other women that are foolish enough to send it to them. It is money laundering and is a FELONY. If you do it, and get caught, you will be the one facing charges. Not them. They have so many fire walls in place that you will never find out who they really are.

He does not LOVE you and is not going to ever see you. As long as you are willing, he will keep you on a string. I pity the women that are falling for this line of utter BS.

Get rid of him and realize it is NOT REAL. It is part of their scam. The "beneficiary", the Itunes Gift Cards, the repairs, they lost their wallet, they are arrested, they are stuck in an airport with no money, they cannot access their funds, and on and on. Oh, they have a sick child, one of their crew members died.

The best thing you can do for yourself is to block him.

If every women would just do that they would be out of business.

Oil rig engineer stricken again
by: Anonymous

Thank you for the information above. On a dating site I was liked and contacted by a man named James Sullivan, who was according to his profile lived 7 miles from me. When I started chatting with him, he wanted to text me so he gave me his number and then wanted mine. We texted a few hours and he decided we were a match made in heaven and destined to be together for life.

He called me last night, and wouldn’t let me call him which was a red flag, and said he is the head engineer on an oil rig out in the gulf of Mexico. He said he wanted to plan a life with me and was retiring in January and would come see me immediately.

Today I ran a check on the phone number and it had no info attached to it because it was a computer generated number.

I immediately blocked the number on my phone and blocked him on the dating site. I also turned him in as scam on the site.

Thank you for posting.

I have still been contacted by the man and his attorney. They want me to receive a large wire transfer that "the company he worked for is wiring to a US bank. Then I’m to transfer the money to my account. We are talking about six figures.

Doesn’t this seem strange??

He can’t receive it himself so he wants me to be me the next of kin. I called the bank and the contact name they gave me wasn’t listed working at their bank. The construction company name I have them because of privacy they wouldn’t tell me if they have the account there.

I’m very skeptical of this transaction. Is it a way to move money out of the country? I emailed his attorney and said I need proper information or else nothing was going to be done. They tell me it’s all legal.

Anyone care to comment??

Clinton Maxwell -Nigerian scammer
by: Anonymous

This loser said he was in love with me and started quoting a whole bunch of nonsense that I just didn't buy into. Never met me but gave the excuse he worked on an oil rig and has a daughter. His FB profile was of a white guy so we texted through messenger. Broken English, stated he had a daughter whose pics were of a different girl all the time. Anyway, after about 2 weeks I decided to google this guy and stumbled on this page.

I had already reported him but wanted to play this out. Except I just couldn't stand the BS any longer of the empty words and love crap. I was truly cringing at how trite this was. So I finally called him a Nigerian POS and said I dont date Nigerian. He started asking why?!?! I was like your a scam artist. Leave me alone.

I blocked him and reported him to Facebook. He actually tried to say him not having money was not his fault. Before every single chat message I said don't ask me for money. Then when he started with the love crap I said he needed to stop. He actually asked me why I didn't love him back. I said because I don't know you and you are a stranger.

The nerve of this scam artist. His MO seems to be trying to cultivate feelings without meeting the person. Please be aware and block at all costs.

His name is CLINTON MAXWELL and pretends to be white.

PLEASE, PLEASE BE CAREFUL LADIES!
by: Deborah

I am still having a hard time realizing that I, well educated, worldly, financially okay and retired, BUT new to any online dating site, fell for this guy. After much research I can say my 'oil rig' romance followed a similar pattern: a widow (his wife died of pancreatic cancer 8 years ago), originally from Norway, with one adult child living in Belgium. We met on & left Match.com and texted/called/emailed each other via our own phones.

After completing the biggest offshore Gulf of Mexico oil leak project in his life, he planned on retiring. He was on the ship since June '18. 'Finding' me was the best thing he could ask for...and within days was pledging his love for me and laying out our 'future'. The morning 'prayers' were routine as were his 'good night' calls from the ship. I don't recall him ever calling me by my first name - he called me darling from the get go.

He had recently moved to LA. He claims he raised $12 million, he sold his home in Seattle, even his Mercedes and won the oil leak project bid. The job was nearing completion, then hurricanes damaged equipment he was required to have in place in order to get paid. Plus the hurricane damaged previous oil leak repairs. Both of these items needed to be fixed with new materials he needed to buy, but he had maxed out on all his funds, no business associates gave him money so guess who stepped in to help!?!. His payment, after paying his crew's salaries, would leave him with a net $20 million.

Hold on, I proceeded (I cannot believe I am even writing this) to liqidate assets, take out loans and even borrow money from a family member for a total of $531,219.00. I met him 9.3.18 and was sending money by 9.17.18. Supposedly his mother in Norway and son borrowed/sent money to him. I was wire transferring my funds to his Bitcoin account. Since he supposedly signed a Non Disclosure Agreement with the oil company that hired him, he could not tell me anything about his project, other than he was in the Gulf of Mexico and had been there since June 2018.

On December 13, 2018, 8:20 AM, I informed him that my last wire transfer to his Bitcoin address had been received. Thoughts of spending Christmas with this wonderful, kind man were really going to be true! He texted me with, "Okay darling. Received the bitcoins and sent to my agent....love you so much baby".

That was the last text I received from him. There had been communication problems due to high winds which I assumed attributed to his silence...finally his telephone number had a recorded message, "your call is rejected." I only had 1 cell number and he didn't have an address in LA yet.

I did manage to get an image of his US Passport - name on the passport: Christopher Bjorn Ragnaar, birth date March 6, 1956 - passport expires May 22,2020. His name does NOT show up on any online sites.

I cannot tell anyone in my family about this. I am ashamed, embarrassed, I feel stupid and I cannot believe I fell for this. It is Christmas and all I want to do is run away. I have no savings, or anything left except my condo, which I may have to sell. I even took out an equity line of credit against my home - $150,000. I will find this guy - going to the FBI, contacting Match.Com, the California Attorney General, the FTC and hiring an attorney.

If anyone has any information about this guy, please call and leave a message at: 424.228.2176. This is a dedicated land line I have for receiving messages.

‘Marc Freeman’ was my scammer. It’s been 3 weeks and $9300 since I blocked everything. My high school yearbook might have said ‘least likely to be scammed’. If you knew me, you would be shocked to think I was scammed. Was I under a spell? It sure feels like it.

For 2 months I feel like I was not me at all, I was transformed. I’m not sure what broke the spell but it broke and I feel like I was dropped out of the sky from visiting another planet. It’s all well and good to say you can’t believe women giving money, and I might have said that as well 3 months ago.

My scammer and I have talked for over a year. Boy have the lies been told on both sides. Today he decided to cut connection because I wanted a year of his pitiful life this last year.

Even though I kept telling him I had no money or my money was tied up for 5 more years. He thought I was going to send him 5K to come to America. Then send me 20k so I can start a taxi business. No mention of coming to America, oh but we still love you. Lies lies lies.
He is on IG.

Not sure of who he is pretending to be. I know his real Identity. I have picture and bank account information. Phone numbers I have saved it all.

He got insulted when I told him he was Lazy and expected someone else to just give him money and get nothing in return. We will see how long he stays away this time. He does not want to work. Non of them do.

Oh. He will be 21 on December 31st. He was only 19 when we started talking. So I hope I have saved a lot of vulnerable women from bankruptcy by keeping him engaged this long. I do know that MGram flag his account and he can not receive money that way. He either has to use a mule or his twin brothers account which I have his information also.

Stay safe. Thank you.

Talk to him more than I thought was normal for somebody being on a ship he has blonde hair, wanted me to send money of course, which I never did.

He sent iTunes songs and prayers every morning and in the afternoon - what a bunch of bull___. There's another one that has a granddaughter and his name is George Agrim. When he said he was going to jump in the sea if I didn't send him money I asked if I could help him. Lol

We call them losers but in actuality we are the losers. They are the winners. If they even scam as much as a $25 ITUNES gift card, they are winning. Everytime we engage with them, whether it is on Words With Friends, or Facebook Messenger, or Hangouts, or WhatsApp, or private email, or Instagram, they are the winners.

If women would just delete, or block immediately, they then become losers. But no, "we" keep on talking with them and eventually falling for them and their lies. Whether you give them no money but just your time, they are still the winners. They love to sext, so they win again.

They change names and identities every five minutes. It is a big game to them and they care nothing for you. To the woman that lost $400,000 I hope you are still not engaging with him. He will never pay you back. You will never meet him.

They are not losers, but they are low life pieces of scum that do not deserve to walk this earth for what they do for a "living". But as long as women fall for their line of BS and their disgusting lies and sexting, they will continue to win.

BLOCK them and get on with your life with real men. Not these disgusting pieces of dirt from Nigeria. Think about it.

He sounds like the man I fell for and ended up losing almost everything to with his lies and stolen photo. Run as fast as you can. My scammer was so in love with me and was going to come home so we could be married and wanted me to look for a mansion with 5 bedrooms within a community with few blacks.

He contacted me shortly after I lost my husband and was still in the grieving process. He sounded so good but I should have known he was too good to be true when he asked me how I was able to support myself as a widow. He had used stolen photos of a man who I contacted and he had a Texan southern drawl, not the same as the one who said he was from England and lived in Georgia. He sounded like he was Maybe German but the more he talked His accent changed. Then the scammer sent me the photos of another man and said he thought I preferred handsome men so he had sent me the fake photos.

The photos that he said were his, were of an older man with a tummy but I thought he was real then. He borrowed money for everything and it was sent to his mules. Then when he got all of my savings, he borrowed my IRA's and when I told him I had no more, he wanted me to send him my ss and small retirement funds. I refused and he asked me for for the Apple cards. I have not sent him any further funds because I have no more but he kept contacting me.

He's always going to return my funds but he always needs airfare. Please do not believe this man. I don't know what name he uses but if you contact him as his wife, he will ask who you are. You are just one of many. Mine made a mistake and listed me along with his name for me--Mrs.Potatohead. But denied it. He is more than one and if you send messages back and forth, you will wonder why they don't remember something you told them a few hours earlier. I called back several times and he was upset because he was in the shower with his iphone.

He was probably on the phone or texting someone else as they always do.

Lost over 400,000. dollars.

All they want is money.

In the country of Nigeria it is not illegal to scam women romancing them so that is what they do. A lot of the nation of Nigeria is funded by your money.

HOW LONG WILL THIS GO ON?

It has been many years that they have been deceiving innocent women everywhere so please understand and listen.

I too was a victim but not now because I am now a WARRIOR.

Why does this guy still keep asking me what the next of kin are doing and can transfer money? He says he’s owed it but can’t show receiving it. He tells me it’s all legal. I told him then come home first and he says he can’t because he’s still dealing with the courts there.

I told him there are too many missing blanks in his story. He keeps telling me to contact his attorney and get the banks info. I did but how do I know it’s really a bank.

They probably want all my personal information but its never going to happen. Then I get "do you love me".

I have been in a dream so I know he will never come home. I just want him to stop asking.
I’ve wasted so much time I just kept thinking it was all true.

Donald William could very well be Donald Hedlund, as they sometimes change their first or last name. Donald Hedlund is a big time smooth talking scammer. He did get about $2500.00 out of me.

So be careful. He also speaks with broken English, would never face time me and very rarely called, always said the connection was bad.

Block him as he will eventually ask for money.

scammed
by: ticked off

One year ago I was looking forward to meeting my so called love of my life being Dalton Jerry or Jerry Dalton or whatever he goes by. He was flying to see me for Christmas and we were to finally meet after 2 and half years. Well the man never showed but he said he was sick on the flight and he was sent to the hospital - ya right.

All this man wanted was money and after he got his money I never heard from this man again except when an FBI agent called to ask about a mule I had sent money to and that is when I find out the truth about where my money really went to.

Even though I have no communication with him thank goodness I am no better off financially than what I was back when he ruined me money wise and credit wise. So I guess what I am trying to say to anyone who has sent money or is about to send money think long and hard about your credit and if the man is really worth it .

Asked him for his address in Asheville NC to send him a Christmas card, but amazingly there are no house numbers on their street as they don't use them.

Wants to come and meet his future wife and family and must have $1500.00, that amazingly has to be sent to a company for the helicopter ride, not him. LOL.

I told him I worked in the family business and he asked me if it was OK if I told him what kind of business. I told him we are custom home builders and he said he would love to have a custom home built. He told me he was a biologist and worked on ships and underwater and on oil rigs. He said he’s from Italy.

His wife cheated on him and took him a long time to get over. He also has a teenage daughter. He wanted me to wish him luck and getting a new contract. I told him that I really liked him and had a strong connection to him. I asked if he had messenger so we can chat more and share pictures. He asked me to sign up on telegram. Wanted me to sign up right away. He also asked for an Amazon gift card to get his daughter some things and I said whatever you need I’ll get for you.

I gave him a bogus number on telegram and he said he couldn’t find me. Then I told him I’m onto you scammer. You are a loser and sent a bunch of laughing faces.

You are 100% right. Real oil rig engineers don't have time to sweet talk women on the computer and they don't need them to send money to them for traveling, medical, food, etc.

They don't give women sob stories about losing their spouses to cancer or whatever illness, either and don't need to steal other men's pictures.

I’ve been contacted on WWF by yet another scammer. So far he hasn’t asked for money but just professes how he feels about me. He’s not sure how it happened but he can’t stop thinking about me! He hopes I’ll just accept him.

I have copied several poetic passages from his emails into Google and searched for them. Most of those words have been taken from other profiles.

I asked him to do me a favor and send me a picture in which he was touching his right index finger to the tip of his nose. His response was that I’m being childish to ask for such.

His WWF username is Ashely freeman and he has a gmail address of ashelyfreeman17.

Thank you all for the advice. It feels wrong and I am going to tell him to find another way. I won’t be a mule. I have asked him several times for a current picture of himself and he says his phone isn’t working right. But he can receive pictures.

He has had me drawn in for a long time. I told him to send me a current picture of himself and the attorney with something with a current date or I’m out!

Either way I’m out. If he is owed that much money he can figure it out another way. I really thought he was coming home but too good to be true.

My feelings for him changed as soon as he asked me to receive money. I have learned a lesson. If it doesn’t feel right then it isn’t right.

He has you fooled. I was also asked to be a beneficiary (next of kin) and DID NOT FALL FOR IT. It is a bunch of lies.

You will NEVER see him, never meet him and will have no money left. All for what??? He wants nothing but your money.

Let me give you some free advice. You are a mule if you do as he is asking and it is AGAINST the law.

I played along with my scammer when he asked me for $3000. I told him I had the money and he sent me the name of the mule (his agent) and the bank information. I immediately called the bank and gave them the name of the agent/mule as well as the account number and told them what the account was used for and also reported it to the FTC.

Be careful because it could happen to you too. Women that realize these guys are playing them for fools and wanting nothing but money get mad and get even. No, not with him, because he will never be found, but for the women that are taking the money from other vulnerable women like yourself.

Get out while you can. Cut your losses. Report him. Do what you can but if you give him one more dime, you are a very foolish women. And if you play the part of the mule not only are you foolish, you are a criminal.

I have been talking to a man for 3 years now and have sent over $15000 dollars. This man had been arrested and been in the hospital and always sick and needing money to pay court fees. I have gone far enough and he was arrested for money laundering because he was bringing $250 thousand cash home without declaring the money.

Now that he is out the company he worked for agreed to pay him the balance of his contract. But of course he can’t bring it home and his bank account at home had been deactivated while he’s been away. Now he wants me to act as his next of kin and accept the money for him through bank transfers between my bank and a bank in South Africa.

I have read about these scams before and once you get payment you become involved in a money laundering scheme and there is fake funds and once you have them in the bank then you withdraw it and send to them only to find out there isn’t any money or you become a sort of mule just to get the money and I have been lured to an illegal deal.

Both the person and his attorney are very convincing.

It doesn’t sound legal to me. I’m scared to do any of this!

Please be careful out there. I wanted to believe so bad but it all seems wrong. My man says it’s the only way he can get paid and come home. I’m listed as his next of kin so I have to receive it. I suggested someone else Be the receiver but no one else of course.

It sounds wrong so could he be telling the truth?

He traveled to South Africa to do a job in an oil rig. Phone code changed to Africa's. He was to be in an oil rig for one month. He offered to pay my phone bill when he came back. He sent me the sweetest notes, music etc.

Then all hell broke loose. I am deep in debt, had to quit my job. I have $6.00 to my name and I will save it for co-pays for my medications. I lost my mind because of him.

Oil Rig Scam or real
by: Anonymous

I was contacted on WWF by a guy called Jeff. He asked me to put hangouts on my phone. We have been communicating for approximately 1 month. A week ago he contacted me saying there had been a terrible accident, two workers critically injured. Then the request for $3,500 to buy oil to get the machinery running again.

I have refused to send any money and he is now being abusive. The stories I am reading on here are ringing alarm bells! He says he is 59 with an 11 year old son who appears in his profile photo on WWF also a widow for 6 years. Wife dying of breast cancer. I wanted to believe in him but am struggling at the moment. He also gave me the name of someone to contact who works in the same industry, and this person is supposed to be in Kuwait and not picking up or answering texts.

James Williams alleging himself to be Dr. James Willaims

I Hate Scammers. I have been scammed by someone. Just wanted to warn everyone that this person has been in contact with me for the past month. Never asked me for any money, but this morning he confirmed to me that he is a scammer that he loved me and thats why he didn't hurt me.

I didn't get a chance to save that message, but below are some of what about him. His IG account was deleted yesterday (@jameswilliams880065) and (@dr_james44).

His gmail account address is (jameswilliams880065@gmail.com).

He posted that other Doctor information on his page and stated that he was a scammer. Its really confusing. When he contacted me on hangout this morning he said that he was a scammer and that he was sorry.

I blocked him immediately on everything from IG and hangouts. He alleges that he is working by contract with Phoenix Petroleum on a Rig for the past year as a Head Doctor. He goes by the name Dr. James Williams and claimed that he was divorced with a 8 yr old daughter.

On Hangout he sent me a picture of himself claiming that he is a black man - showing only his top of his bald head and his bare feet and he was sitting forward on the picture so it was clear enough and I didn't get a chance to save it because it was deleted really quickly.

Hey Linda can you send me pictures of him and a phone number. I think he is the same person contacting me. He got upset at me last night because I couldn’t send him iTunes cards to eat and block me on hangouts. He told me he loves me. Dec 21, 2018 he returns to Texas and he is on an 8 million dollar contract.

He has one son 19 one 9 and a nanny and his mom helps with the 9 year old and he will becoming to see me when he gets back home. I make him happy. Can you send me pictures so I can see if it the same person who has been stringing me Along for six months.

I have given him $175 in iTunes cards. He calls me everyday. We talk about the Bible life , friendship and how much we like each other. He won’t do video chat and he says he needs a $700 iTunes card to feed his crew a few more weeks until he gets home. He told me he has a home in Cali, one in Texas and one in Milan Italy where he was raised. He lost his wife and daughter to a car accident. I am a Jehovah Witness and I have been praying with him and for some reason he softened up and seemed to stop the lies and started talking the Bible as I witnessed to him. He sent me roses.

He calls and text daily checking on me. He really doesn’t want much from me. The large amounts of monies he isn’t asking me for. Just a $100 card to get food for workers. He told me he loves god and he goes to church but he wants to retire from this life on completion of this contract. You know Jehovah God can move a mans heart to do what is right. He is gentle with me. He talks with me as he is walking away from this unhappiness in his life. I pray he finds peace. Maybe it will come.

I keep praying that god reveals the truth of who he is. Send me pictures at my Email Linda. I want to know if he is the same handsome, Caucasian broken English man who has been talking the Bible with me?

Girlbethovan @gmail.com.

I called his other number and he acted shocked like he forgot he gave it to me. When he got on he was shocked it was me and he started chasing me as he was begging me to talk to him. I was so shocked. Wouldn’t it be actually funny that he has done this so long that he actually cares for some one. He doesn’t ask me for the big quantities of mone.

He just keeps trying to get to know me. The funny thing is he is softening in his voice. He calls me his good girl. He won’t let me see him. We been talking almost 6 months. He’s asked me for more understanding about the Bible and he didn’t understand about Jehovah God. I had to explain that Jehovah sees all things and knows all things. Since I been on this site I have gotten new numbers heard stories and seen this person keep being humble and he keeps trying to appear to me he is changing and trying to do better.

After Dec 21, 2018 he is leaving all this. Maybe Jehovah is using me. He has a conscience with me. He really does want much from me. Send me the pictures of him Linda. My guy is Scott Pierro I met him on words from friends. I have a home and cell number from him. Awaiting pictures. Thank you.

Paul Stephen
by: Linda

I met Paul Stephen, 61 year old widower with a daughter named Marsha on POF. His deceased wife's name is Martha and they lived in Painesville, Ohio. He is working as a Contractor Petroleum Engineer on a ship off the coast of San Diego. He quickly fell madly in love with me and called me Baby.

We video chatted on Hangouts - he is clearly foreign and not from the US and has broken English. I do have pictures of him and have his cell number. His need for money to fix equipment on the ship surfaced today and he needs $50K so he can finish his $8 million contract and get home at the end of the week to be with me. We have been communicating about 8 days and suddenly our chats ended when I asked for specific information for my Attorney to draw up papers for a legal loan.

He asked me if I was threatening him. He refused to give me his address. His phone number is 731-472-1169.

I highly doubt I'll hear from him again.

Beware of George Agrim
by: Anonymous

Met him on POF earlier this year. Said he lives in San Diego, then he had to go on a ship as an investigational person. We even skyped but I couldn't see all of his face. He was white, but I know they have ways of scamming this way also.

Of course no wife, has 1 granddaughter who is his life, more so than me. He is a fraud, said he does import, export to China. Of course he needed money, they all do, then iTunes. I was confused because of the skype so I sent only $25.

Of course he wanted more, sent me paperwork, it was so fraudulent it was funny. Beware of yet another, Italian man. I even asked these men, what would you do if you had not met me? He even threatened me, that I would be sorry, I am not afraid of any of these punk 28 yr old Nigerian, Ghana boys, girls, or no telling who we talked to.

I still get scammers, when they ask for my email, I get theirs first, check it, it always has bad remarks on it, then I block them and never respond back.

I'm so sick of these freaks.

Claims to be all alone in the world. His wife and child left him 25 years ago. After a week of texting he has fallen deeply in love and wants to make me his wife.

He has worked at a hospital in Turkey, they owe him millions of dollars, and now they are ready to give him the money he has worked so hard for. Because he is offshore, he cannot receive the package of money, so wanted me to give him my address and phone number.

I refused! I knew he was scamming me from the beginning! He is very charming and very intelligent, his English is not broken. His instagram account is gone. I have reported him.

Oil Rig engineer for dating scam
by: Anonymous

I came across two guys who thought they could scam me by telling me their hard luck stories about losing their wives to one illness or tragedy or another and get me to trust them. One claimed to be in the import/export business and to be raising a young son, not to mention that he was robbed and beaten in South Africa during his business trip and needed money to pay hospital bills so that he and his young son could go back home to the United States.

Another one, who calls himself Dennis Marguilles, claimed to be an oil rig engineer for Exxon Mobil, also supposedly having lost his wife to cancer five years ago, and supposedly has two kids. We had a lovely conversation until he found himself in a situation that required him to return home to be with his daughter, who was sick and in the hospital, in the United States (he didn't say where in the United States).

He told me he needed a permit to leave the oil rig and needed money. After I told him why I couldn't send him or his employer money, he accused me of finding fault with him! I found a picture of a real estate agent that this Dennis Marguilles, the oil rig engineer, had put on his Twitter profile, with the cover pic of that man's two children.

What can be done against these scammers.
by: Anonymous

I was reading where your friend almost got her car repossessed. It has been a long time since I fell for any stories. I learned well. What helps me, since I doubt they be found, I spread the word, names, whatever I have to websites like this. I have been doing this for at least 3 years now. I wish we had a support group where we could skype or something. It's hard to understand unless its happened to you. Now I read the stories and I think, why, its so obvious. Not if its their very first time.

Never heard of a scammer before. I'm very knowledgeable now. If I can save any woman or man from this hell, because that's what it is than I am a happy woman. It breaks you, mentally, physically, I guess what really did it is, he knew when I took out a loan from a place charging 188%, that if he didn't show up, I would lose everything.

HE NEVER SHOWED UP! he didn't even care, he had all my money, never, never again. I was suicidal. And I am a strong woman.

Gary Johnson, James Smitt, Donald Hedlund
by: Anonymous

This person is I believe one in the same person using all these names. I was speaking with Donald Hedlund this year back in February thru August, he is in construction, so he says, built a house for a client from February till June, supposedly this client paid him with an international check that couldn’t be cashed.

He owed the hotel where he was staying while building this house money, supposedly his passport got confiscated because he owed taxes in London for building this house, which he can’t pay because he can’t cash this check. Where he ever came up with 180K I don’t know since he’s broke. Then he got hit by a car and is in the hospital needing surgery which the persons insurance won’t pay for because they won’t pay for third party insurance, what? Lol.

He is from supposedly Goldberg Nevada, no parents, no children, his wife died in childbirth, he is supposedly 49 years old, very handsome man, dark hair, brown eyes. I have reported him and his mules and account numbers to the FBI. I have notified Western Union, Money Gram and the banks he wanted me to send money to for Angela Forsythe.

He was supposedly living with a man named Joe and his family when he left the hotel he was staying at when he got arrested for not paying taxes. I have done a reverse address search and there is no Donald Hedlund in Goldberg Nevada.

He is a scammer. Block him, delete him.

He will sweet talk you and make you feel sorry for him until he gets what he wants. Get away from these low lifes, they will drain your pockets and fill your head and heart full of love and romance and empty promises.

Says he has a home in Rock Hill South Carolina and Springfield Illinois, but neither address check out. He said he is in construction, stuck in London for not paying taxes in US, dumb! My friend is out about $10,000, and he asks her to wire funds to random people, Nmamaka Cotton, Affesat Mohammad, Michael Gabbard and Linda Shaffer and she spent hundreds in iTunes cards, probably added phone lines to her cell plan-actually 4 lines.

She has never met him so how on earth can you possibly fall for this? She is flat broke now and had her car repossessed but luckily we were able to get it back before it was towed. He supposedly sent her an engagement ring, but why accept a ring from someone you have never met?? Are these scammers really sweeping the ladies off their feet, getting in their heads that much or are they promising some type of return on an Investment?

Oh and the 180k check he sent her was fake from Scott & Adams drilling in Ontario. I mean sheez the phone # on the check was bad and was type print - yes a typewriter or a 1980's printer from Arvest Bank in Arkansas, and the attached letter from Scott 519 694 2184. It is so hard to sit and watch all of this happen. Has any one had any luck finding one of these low lifes?

eric.edward0147@gmail.com

Why didn't I find this site 2 months ago? This guy is the unluckiest guy in all the world! He contacted me on WWF. It started out that he just needed iTunes cards to talk to his kids. And then he needed to connect to repair his other phone. From there, he needed to borrow about 15K to finish the contract.

He sent pictures of the check BP gave him for the contract as well as a safety award. The check couldn't be cashed until the job was finished of course. So he's carrying around a $4 million dollar check in his back pocket until he can cash it?

Then he needed some oil delivered to the rig. Of course, the company would not pay for these supplies because he is an independent contractor.

Then his daughter had an accident and the hospital wouldn't treat her without a $750 deposit. He even sent pictures of the daughter's injury from falling down the stairs.

And finally he just needed money to get off the rig and get home to his kids. He wanted to know if he couldn't make it home if the kids could stay with me for the holidays. Apparently the nanny was just going to take off and leave them alone. So his solution was to have them stay with a stranger??!!!???

I was suspicious and I was careful. I did a reverse phone number look up and everything checked out to be in his home state of California.

He even told me where he got his degree. I checked that out too. The university has a petroleum engineering program.

He had an answer for everything!

He also had several pictures of himself that he would send at various times. A nice looking man with salt and pepper beard and not much hair on top, with blue or green eyes.

One picture in the morning from inside his cabin. Another picture with him and some other person in the company that was visiting for an inspection. A picture of him celebrating his birthday with a cake his 9 year daughter arranged. He told me if I wanted to send him a cake it would cost $1000 to get it to the rig...but she could pay that?!!??

Another picture in his hard hat and orange work coveralls. And then a picture after a dive to fix the oil leak underwater. They were all of the same man.

Thanks for the person who mentioned Tineye. The pictures of himself are all considered fake! I checked the phone numbers, but I didn't even think about doing a reverse image search.

And of course there were very religious notes in my email along with terms of endearment after only chatting 3 days!

All the getting to know you questions he asked such as favorite color, dream vacation, where were you born, favorite activities, dream vacation, etc.

He also seemed very concerned about me such as was I eating properly and getting enough sleep. Don't stay out too late. He would even ask what I had for supper and "call the chef" to order the same thing for himself.

Now, I don't consider myself lonely. In fact, I ended a real relationship only a few months ago and when he first contacted me I told him I wasn't interested in romance. He just kept on and on.

I guess my thinking was that if I'm an honest and sincere person that plays word games online, there has to be a few other people out there like me - right?

Even after I blocked his numbers there are still emails about how could I do that to him. He's very sincere with his feelings and why am I so mean?

It helped me just to get this out. Thanks for reading and BEWARE!!!

Also remember, this happens to men too...not just women are susceptible to scammers.

Talking To Scammers
by: Anonymous

I have been reading, posting and commenting on this site for over a year now.

I, too, was "fooled" in the beginning by a smooth talking, "good" looking man on Words with Friends. For about three weeks I thought he was real. We went to Facebook Messenger and spoke several times. We tried video chatting but of course I could not "see" him. Next time he tried it I put my phone down so it was dark and he could not "see" me.

Red flags started waving when I tried to locate his "firm" in Houston as he was awarded a $20,000,000 contract through Exxon in the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, he could not be found.

Just for fun, I kept it going to see what would happen. He enjoyed "sexting" and was soooo in love with me it bordered on sickening. One day I heard a baby crying on the oil rig. He quickly hung up and then called back a few minutes later. When I questioned him he never answered! Another time I heard children playing and laughing in the background of the oil rig. Oh, yes, he was watching a movie. Sure he was. They were all probably his children and he was working from home instead of in a room with other scammers. Yes, I also heard men with his very same "German" accent and a woman also in the background.

Eventually he asked for me to be his beneficiary. I refused. A few weeks later he needed an Itunes gift card. I refused. A few weeks after that he needed $10,000 for repairs. I refused. Last but not least, he needed $3000 to pay the food and water supplier or they were going to starve.

During this 15 month saga with him he went from the Gulf of Mexico to the UK! Of course, there were a few months in between that we stopped talking.

I decided to set up a new Words with Friends game using an old picture of myself from about 20 years ago! I then sent him a game request which he would assume was random. He took the bait.

My photo was sort of at a distance and in profile. But he fell madly in love. We chatted for a few matches on the game and then asked me to go to Hangouts. I told him I did not have it installed. I set up a gmail account under my new identity and then sent him an email. He responded and then it turned into hangouts.

It was hilarious. He sent me through the email a long list of questions that he wanted answered! Of course, he answered them first. I was hysterical!! He kept to the same script he used with me as far as his likes, music choices etc.

Finally after only one month he asked for money.

I then told him I knew he was a liar and that I made up my entire story. I told him I was one of his former marks that never sent him a dime. I asked him to guess which one I was! And to watch out beause he would never know when I would turn up again with a new name and identity!! I then blocked him from WWF and blocked him from the email and hangouts!

Next thing you know he tried to call me, the real me, a week later on Messenger. I did not answer. He then sent me a "wave" on Messenger. I did not wave back. Guess he was going through his list of "former marks" to see if he could figure out who it was.

That was the end of September. Just the other day I checked Messenger to see if he was there and he is now gone! Not sure if he was kicked off it or just removed himself. I like to think he was kicked off!!

I am now done with them all because they are disgusting subhuman creatures that want MONEY from vulnerable women. My Christmas wish is for ALL women to wise up and NOT believe their BS. Because that is all it is.....BS. They love no one but themselves.

The name he uses is Chris Anderson and he is using photos of a prominent business man named Jay Francis McHugh. Google Jay and you will see.

He also uses other names and photos as well. He is NOT a one woman man, nor is he one man. He is many.

Mule caught and arrested
by: Anonymous

I hate bringing this even up but today if you watched the World News an 80 year old lady was arrested for receiving money from a business in Acme Michigan for a guy and sending it to Nigeria to him. She was involved in the scam and the police had warned her not to be involved with this guy but she kept on and was doing it for awhile now as his mule sending money from women. Well as I said she was arrested today.

These guys will go after anyone they think has money as the State Police Said of Michigan and women need to be more careful and if you play around with them you are just as much to blame. The business was able to get all their money back for they did not play around with this person and reported it right away.

So Please be careful. Yes I lost money too and I have the id from WU that they gave me to give to the police when I reported it. Please do not send money no where. They said 99% they are from Nigeria, Ghana, no matter how sweet they talk to you and say what you want to hear, delete them as soon as possible. If we would stop playing their game and falling for them they will stop.

Take care and God Bless

Oil rig engineer scam - CHARLIE BROWN
by: Anonymous

Hi. He was 41 years old by the name of Charlie Brown. A Widow and his wife was killed in a plane crash three years ago. He has 2 children 12, and 6 and lives in Washington and works in the Shell company. From the beginning he was madly in love with and was an excellent player. The truth is I already knew HE was a liar. He knows how to convince that he really wanted to help me with the money I did not want to get. He made me stay up at night to hear HIM but fortunately I did not give money. HE made mistakes that allowed me to examine in depth and understand his deceit from and from what I saw most of the time he used it on everyone WITH the same words, my darling, my baby, my love, my wife, my queen, my angel.

He very much wanted to get married and repeated the words 'your husband'. He sent beautiful pictures of him and the kids twice who looked different and not identical and was not ready to make video calls at all because he was in a very sensitive place. I want to work to locate him and warn others not to fall in the same sting.

Be careful and take care not to be tempted Transferring bank account information even to get money as its not worth the headache and lack of sleep

I wish to thank all of the above individuals who have written on this site warning me and others of the VERY SICK and SAD OIL RIG SCAMMER that just tried to suck me into the crazy scene on the dating site PLENTY OF FISH. He knows goes by the name Roy Jefferson! He developed an incredible site on the page that showed he was an Oil Rig CEO which I realized was a bunch of baloney! Avoid this guy! He is certifiable!

I have been writing here for months. I had mentioned how we need to meet, converse, and communicate with each other somehow. I have kids, and my sister disowned me, and so did my son. No one knows except here, that I have $150 out of each paycheck that been going on for 4 years and more to go. I'm 64,and the scammer was 28, and who knows if it was him all the time or whatever.

It's been a long time and now when I speak to someone online out of my area, I ask for a photo with him waving to me or my name. I never hear back and that works for me. I appreciate your nice, kind words also. No one will ever really understand unless they have been through it.

I would love to meet each and everyone of you. Good luck to all.

Whom wrote on the 24 of November
by: Wiser Now

Hello to you. I am very sorry for your pain and the awful debt he gave you. It brings me to tears knowing that we trusted, we loved, and we believed these criminals. I would encourage you in all the good ways possible to heal and to restore your happy attitude because if not they win and we cannot let them destroy us.

We are victims but we can be warrior victims and say never. No more will we allow this evil to go on but we will fight back telling the truth and life and maybe we can make a noise to be heard.

I do not know if you believe in the Almighty God but he see this all and it will not go good for them on that day when nothing is hidden from His eyes at judgement.

We have to leave it rest that we may heal. I too have to pay a debt for four more years. The money the oil rig engineer scam cost me was ten whole years of savings out of every paycheck. Now I am just trying to pay myself back and get ready for that rainy day of retirement.

We have to not let this destroy us and we have to not give in to hate. We have to not be bitter so we can stand up and live and love with strong hearts of women that have been injured but never ever defeated. I wish there was a way we could join and start a movement so the world can see us.

It seems we suffer alone but it will not always be as such.

I have my fist raised not in defiance or defeat but I am swearing to make a difference with the help from God.

See I have no family, no children, and no man to watch over me but there are higher powers that I have to trust.

I love you all my sisters.

Gary Johnson, Donald Hedlund
by: Anonymous

Exactly right, with Donald Hedlund, Hary Johnson, as he is stuck in London because of taxes he supposedly didn’t pay because of a house he built for a client that gave him an international check he couldn’t cash so the London Police confiscated his passport until he pays his taxes, such BS.

He is definately a scammer, and he told me he’s in the hospital because he was hit by a car and now needs surgery, and he said he lives in Goldberg Nevada. I told him I did a reverse address search and there is no Donald Hedlund in Goldberg Nevada, but he said well honey that is my real name and I live there.

Such bs. I am his world that revolves around him, I am his one and only.

He told me he is 49 years old, very handsome with dark hair and brown eyes, his dad was from Norway, he has broken English, cannot call much because of the connection. No children, his wife died in childbirth, no parents or relatives.

He is a scammer, and he’s been "stuck" in London for 10 months.

My scammer
by: Debbie

My scammer is Gary Robert Hilton. I met him on plenty of fish. He said he fell in love with my picture the minute he saw my beautiful, smiling face. He told me it was better if we texted instead of going through the site because he seldom went on the site but could text me easier while he was at work.

He claimed to be a 65 year old self-employed oil rig engineer who lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Said he was a widower whose wife had died in childbirth 20 years ago leaving him to raise their son Anderson. He would not talk about her as he said it made him too sad. Said he went to the University of Liverpool. He told me his son was in Germany studying botany. He fell madly in love with me right away and talked of marriage.

I was suspicious of him from the start so I just went with it. He would never call me or skype just text. He contradicted himself often and even called me Zoe once. If I confronted him about something he said, he would change the subject and not answer my question or say he had to go. Every morning and night I was greeted by love and heart messages. Often he would send me songs to listen to. When he sent me pictures they were suspicious. One day he went golfing and sent me a picture of him golfing with mountains in the background - In Fort Wayne, Indiana!

Another picture had him leaving on a plane for Malaysia and he is standing on the tarmac. A picture of him in Malaysia standing by a sign has his feet in front of the sign but his arm is in back and too skinny to be his real arm and was choppy like a cutout. Soon after we met he said he was going to Malaysia on this 20 million dollar contract that when completed he would retire and we could travel and start our life together.

After being at the oil rig for a couple weeks (and romancing me constantly about how much he loved me and wanted to marry me and already calling me his "wife") he claimed there was an explosion on the oil rig and 4 of his workers were severely injured. In order to fix the damage and save the contract that was our future he needed me to open up a bank account online as his wife so he could transfer money into the account and pay for the damages and save the contract otherwise he could lose 20 million dollars.

I looked it up online and found that catfish do this and deposit stolen money which makes you an accomplice in other words you are aiding and abetting a crime. I confronted him and told him I believed he was a "catfish". He was indignant and went on and on about love and trust and how hurt he was. I researched him online and could find no proof that he existed and I told him this. When I asked where I could find him online he would not help me find him or anything on him. I asked for him to send me a picture right then and there of him holding up a piece of paper with his name on it and he refused.

Several times in the next few days I asked for that picture and was told no or the request was ignored. I kept asking for him to find some way to prove to me that he existed. He would never respond to my request. He did not have a facebook page but said I could reach him through facebook messenger.

I have found that many "catfish" use similar MO's. They are widowers raising children on their own. That child is at college or boarding school. They have no other relatives and a sad childhood story. Often they are engineers (commonly oil) which brings them all over the world. They "hint" that they have money". They fall in love with you right away. They often don't have facebook accounts. Soon after starting up with you they need to go overseas for work.

While overseas they have a major crisis and you are the ONLY one who can help them. It involves you sending them money or opening up a bank account online.

Beware of these men and trust your instincts. If he is too good to be true he probably doesn't exist. Do your homework immediately on any online relationship. Check him out online. If something doesn't fit get out.

He says he is a 58 yo white male from East Lake Ohio. He plays on WWF. Starts by saying he wants to get to chat some. "I don’t bite". I looked him up on a security site and there is a person by this name, address, with Detroit Vanessa. He is a contractor on oil rig, supervisor with 8 men. He has a 16 yo daughter in boarding school. Her mom cheated on him with his best friend who ended up killing the mom.

He talks a good game, retiring in Dec and wants a wife to love and mom for kid. Kid wants to talk with me on email. Yikes.

Red Flag. Falls so in love with me and has great values. 17 days of his needy chat. Today, he asks me for the Itunes. Sounded like a different person. He wrote 2 long believable emails.

I actually think it is a woman now doing a lot of the writing. I immediately blocked him, on WWF, text and email. This guy was believable with the exception of falling in love so fast. He took his photo off WWF but uses a J. with his name.

I would never have given him money, a bit embarrassed and wasted a lot of time.

I too was talking to a man on Facebook and he finally admitted to me he was from Ghana and wanting me to send him money for a light bill and a calling card to keep talking to me. He said their women are to support their man, I said I am not your woman. You have lied so much why would I want to be and send you money of course WU or Money Gram.

I said no and he got pretty ugly with me. Told him to put his own picture on and not a white picture of someone else so he finally did. He plays soccer. Did see many pictures. Please be careful because if they are not from Nigeria they are from Ghana usually. I have gotten so many requests from white men till I look at their likes and see all Nigerian and Ghana people. So they get Blocked. I have many different colored friends and they are great, but I will not be used by these low-life scum.

I always save the picture to see if I can find the Real Person to let him know. One even used the weather channel guy on his.

Oil Rig Contractor in Armenia

Has anyone heard from this guy? He claims his name is David William. He is an engineer who has a contract to hire workers for oil rigging. We have chatted on Hangouts for about a month now. He has an accent but speaks English. He has called me now several times via Hangouts claiming he is in love with me. I became more suspicious when he told me he has only $8000 more money to collect from loans and investors that is due November 23 and he would lose the contract if he didn't have it by then. He is very convincing!

I spent a lot of last year on this site. I lost a lot of money to these creatures. Mine had at least 3 accomplices. One was a woman with a bad lisp. He played me January thru August of 2017.

I was warned he would come back on Hangouts a year later. He DID almost to the exact day.

I decided to play with the monster for 2 months this time. He started with a very elaborate story about being stuck in Australia. He told me he had money coming and wanted me to help him by providing my credit card number front and back so his company could load it.

I told him I filed bankruptcy on account of him. I no longer had any credit. That sorry POS was so understanding. He figured out that if I gave him my banking information, the company could put it in my account.

I can't believe how awful these "people" are!

I am NO longer trusting of anyone!

To the lady who played WWF and thinks she is scamming him on hangouts
by: Anonymous

First off if you look up Hangouts they get you there so they can get your IP address and use it. They can get most of your information on Hangouts and use it. So No you are not playing him if you are your playing each other. If he has your phone number he is probably using it to get stuff by ordering.

My Scammer got me good by going to hangouts and I will never do that again. I closed my account on hangouts for that reason. Hangouts is located I believe out of Canada and they do nothing about all the information that a person steals on your profile. Be careful.

You THINK you are playing him but believe me he is most likely sitting back laughing. These scammers know their stuff and they stop at nothing. If they say they are on the Gulf NOT TRUE. Call the company they will tell you the same thing.

Take care and God Bless.

Widower with child petrochemical engineer
by: Anonymous

He goes by Andy Oscar Johnson and sometimes calls himself 10-10 because he says he was born on Oct 10 from Oslo Norway. He says hes appx 50. I supposedly met him when he was 49. He may go by several names besides the 2 I just gave. Now I must admit...hes GOOD! I'm considered a very attractive woman with no problems obtaining a man but after experiencing a bad breakup and tired of the dating scene recently I fell volunerable to this creep.

Just when I was praying for God to send me a good man, the devil must've heard me too. Not even a month later I thought I had the sign and I went with it. I knew better and didnt listen to my inner voice, so Lesson learned. Let me describe this heartless, ratchet demon who found my email info on Meetup and contacted me. He wasnt totally my type but okay looking. Hes a supposedly independent petrochemical engineer currently won a contract in Alaska.

A widower from Norway who lost his wife to cancer with a 14-15 yr old male child. He has a strong accent. Hes sweet and romantic. He can come on strong most times saying that hes in love and has already told his mother about you. Hes adamant about you being his love, his angel, his dream come true. He addresses you by sweatheart, baby, my love. His favorite words - You're the best in the world, I dont know what I'd do without you. You are God sent, I love you so much. I cant live this life without you now.

He was looking for a good woman he could call a best friend and possibly the love of his life, travel the world and spoil to the core when hes done with the project. He will stop you from any projects you're doing because he wants to fix, complete, decorate, etc. Of course after he completed his private onshore/offshore contract.

He will send offshore pics of the engineering project but hes not in any of them. He stops you from spending money only because he sees you spending what he wants. The only image I could find of him online is on Twitter in a suit leaning against a small table. Looked like he was at a wedding. White male, about 6'3, blue eyes, dark brown hair,slightly balding in front just a little, no facial hair. He will send pics of him in a suit, dressed down in nice active wear, a lot of selfie shots in places other than real time.

So, I am also a victim of a scam. I wish I had known of this site sooner. Everything I've read on this site sends me flags. It seems that several of you are speaking to the same guy with various names.

He sent me the flowers, and the excuses. I dropped my phone in the water off the side of a boat that's why my number changed, you complete me romantic texts, phone sex is intense and claims to be hung lol! Sweet poems await your email when you awake, poems before the night is done and voice messages that were reassuring, perfect love songs he sent me, he'd even sung to me.

He would say the equipment broke down and he had to lay 45k but now something else went wrong. Workers walking off the job because he cant pay them. He gave me a user name and password directing me to a website to show he had funds (millions) in an account he couldnt readily get to. He says he'll pay whatever loans I can obtain from anyone with interest.

He will make promises of spoiling you, marriage in the near future, he wants you to forget about anyone who's ever hurt you etc. I became weary when there were excuses of why he couldn't make a visit and when he mentioned that he hadn't felt such strong love for any woman since his wife died. He will say he got sick and was in the hospital as an excuse of why he couldnt call for days.

How ashamed he felt when he cant pay you back but he will make it right as soon as he gets his final payment from the government for the project. He will claim his strong faith in Chritianity. Hes only been with one woman (his wife) and he sees only you and a family in the future. He will find the person with a kind heart and make them feel so sorry for him.

I should've cut him off after the 2nd time he requested $ and cried out for help as the signs were there because I asked him not to ever ask for $ again and he apologized and in the next breath there was something else urgent going wrong with the project.

I also started to see repetitious emails he sent like a copy and paste as he forgot he already sent in a previous email a whole back. Sometimes He's in Vietnam ordering supplies or somewhere he cant get to money and he needs you to send it to his interpreter. He will text you or email you when he asks for $ because he says he feels so much shame that it overwhelms him to ask in person but when he knows a wire is going out he will be on the phone calling & assisting you in every way he can. Then he will follow up with a call & finally that sweet email with the deepest gratitude and love.

Thank God he didnt bankrupt me but he got at least 15k which is a lot. Although he didnt get my last it was a lesson learned. I'm sure God has a special place for heartless people like him and he will get no less than what he deserves. I finally opened my eyes and got the sign a little late. Thats my fault but for sure it will never happen again. Pray and listen not to man but to all of those red flags and God put in you way.

Our intuition rarely ever fails us as we just have to be open to listen. I failed because I was tired of dating and wanted this man to be the one. I guess I literally $paid$ for what I wanted to hear so dont be quick to dismiss the signs. Know that anyone who loves you wont take your last $ and wont put you in a bind for their own selfish reasons and if he/she cant make their presence known and prove to you who they are than it is exactly what it is...a beautiful, fantastic lie!

Don't get bamboozled like I and many others have. I pray and hope this helps others who may be possibly looking for answers. Be blessed and dont worry as he probably has many faces, and I will put his pics out there so people will know hes a scam.

'Dashing" Oil Rig Consultant
by: Anonymous

We met on Hinge, his name is Edward Sanchez, or Edward Noble or Ralph Sanchez. He has a fake Facebook profile under Edward Sanchez. Claims he is Portuguese American, living in Vancouver. His cell is a Toronto based number but can be traced to Nigeria. Fake company website:

www.edbestcont.com and also stole the identity of two "employees" on his site. His photos are all stolen from someone not on social media or sites.

Reported to Hinge, where he had 3 different profiles going, 1 in Vancouver, 2 in Victoria. Texted for 2 weeks and I told him not to text me after the first week as we were to meet and of course didn't. I live in Vancouver so anyway he called me twice to convince me he was really interested, but working on a big deal with Shell Oil. I called him out when I found his other dating profile which he denied. Blocked him and reported to all the sites I could.

He was also on OK Cupid for a spelling under "Eddie". He is "friending" self employed women on FB all over the world.

Quite a talker, sweet and looking for older "mature" woman. Said saw my picture and I was that "woman".

Watch out for Davide Wagner. Born in Germany and had 12 year old son who lived with his mother in Germany, and said his wife left him when his son was 2 years old.

Scammer talked on words for about a week then one day text me and ask for $500 "please Dear"
that rang a bell and I knew he was full of BS
and he sent me a Rose in a glass Dome.

Do not fall for his BS.

Michael Crawford
by: Anonymous

Michael Crawford is a scammer. I talked to him for six months and he kept telling me he needed money to get to the states. His name was Donald Hedlund when I was talking to him. Only child, no parents, no siblings, no relatives. Wife died in child birth. Had no kids then.

Get rid of him. He wanted my banking information for the embassy to deposit a check. The embassy was BS too. Save yourself, block him. He’s a smooth talker, very romantic. Loves to do sexting.

He is a scammer. One excuse after another for not being able to get home. It’s a sure sign, red flag. Always excuses. They are all the same.

Block them all.

Is He Fake Or Real?
by: Anonymous

I am typing this to a woman. Are you Crazy? Didn't you read all these postings? He is a FAKE. First sign, sea in Iran, give me a break, always at some sea where you can't reach them. Always has a kid somewhere, always needs money.

Facebook, that profile could be a fake. Did you ask to be his friend on facebook? Do It. He won't answer or he set it up. I had one put the fake person on Linkendin. I thought it was the real person. I tried to contact him. After I found the real person on facebook. He was a reporter in Jordan. All pictures taken of his family.

DONT SEND MONEY!! HE IS A FAKE. LISTEN TO ME, IT WON'T END THERE. SOMETHING ELSE WILL HAPPEN. YOU WILL NEVER SEE HIM OR YOU MONEY EVER AGAIN.

Anyone know Kelvin Jordan?
by: Freedancer

I recently struck up an Instagram conversation with a gentleman named Kelvin Joedan. He claims to be a geologist who works on an oil rig in Alaska but is from Houston TX. He hasn't asked for money yet but uses "Hello Dear" and often slips into broken English as well which are red flags.

Have any of you had dealings with him?? I have written the company he claims to work for and asked if they have anyone employed there with that name. I also wrote my ex who is in oil and gas to see if he can find out anything.

If any of you can tell me info on this guy, please do. Thank you.

I @Foundinfl is the Twitter account for Doug. The scammers have used him on many sites - probably ten or more and the amount of money scammed is in the high tens of thousands and maybe 70 thousand this year off his picture.

You can look him up too on Youtube and ask for Doug Blevins either singing or as a realtor and you can see his pictures.

I'm a senior and was scammed 3yrs ago for the first time. I am still in debt and will be for a while. I get horrible spam X rated stuff. I have had many friend requests and I have had 13 more since that try. Don't trust anyone or anything you don't know.

If you are online as I was they write real good. In fact one was named James McMillan. He took me right off the site and asked for money. I learned my lesson.

I just don't trust anyone anymore. I only stick to my location now. I don't see where I can look at the pictures. I put all mine thru Tineye, then google image search. Good luck to you and all of us men and women.

Arc Daniel
by: Anonymous

A guy asked to friend me on 8/14/18. He had a pic and his name was Arc Daniel. Supposedly a widower, Caucasian, 63, New York. He took a 9 month contract on an oil rig off New York city. He claims he owns a gold business. Later he mentions he sells cell phones as well for extra money. He attempted twice to connect. He claimed his wife was killed in a car accident 2 years ago.

When I finally accepted he changed Arc Daniel to James McMillian. I asked him about it and he said Arc Daniel was his nickname. He was really smooth and texted me mornings and night. He started the I love you very soon. He then started asking if I could help him out since he couldnt get off rig. He wanted me to open some checks so he could pay some bills.

Gullible me did so. He then wanted me to purchase Google Play cards. I made payments on cards and let them clear and then he had me buy more. He then did unauthorized payments, not once but twice on one card. He claimed his bank account had been hacked.

He said it had never happened before but his accounts were paid and unauthorized by different bank accounts to the tune of almost $3,000 which I am now liable for.

I blew up and texted him screaming and crying. He listened and promised he would make good soon. He blocked me and then deleted his facebook account.

I have a telephone # he messaged me on 917-231-8514. I looked it up and Its a number associated with Arch Wireless corp. I have reported it to facebook, and FTC. I do have the pictures he sent me.

I dont know what to do. I posted a complaint on Yelp about the scam. That day, after I posted, I received 10 or 15 Friend requests. So I dont know what was going on. I rejected them. Im a senior with limited income and it dropped my credit score by 90 points. I will be paying payments on these accounts and will be trying to repair my credit rating.

I had to cancel all cards and have them reissued. I would like to post a picture I saved to warn people. One of the cards got paid by a person in Kentucky by the name of Janet Sherrow. I dont know if she was part of the scam or a new victim.

Some of the photos are youthful and the guy he stole the photos from looks like he might be gay.

I encourage everyone to repost these scams. In addition to posting here, contact a federal cyber crime agency and be prepared to give them as much information as you can, including emails. I did this. I also told my story to my friends and family on face book. I shared the story and pictures and asked them to share it publicly.

Not just among friends. It was an embarrassment to me but I was not going to let these scammers get away with this and find another person to hurt. I was angry and filing a complaint and making a post was a good way to get back and also save friends and family from getting caught up in a scam as well.

Many friends contacted me later to say that they were scammed as well but too embarrassed to tell anyone about it.

REPORT THEM AND EXPOSE THEM. At least they won't be able to use the same pictures, which were probably stolen anyways. They have my picture, and I am sure they will be trying to use that somewhere!

ALWAYS ASK TO VIDEO CHAT!!!!
by: Anonymous

Update on Comment Title:Victor Gonzalez IG @_victorb2b

I google every person's photo that contacts me. I found the "real" guy's picture my scammer was using, told him what was going on and now we are friends. LOL. He said he has reported about 15 accounts (I helped him with a few) that have used his photos. He is a real rig engineer, married with a beautiful family & does live IG videos of the beautiful ocean and posts photography often.

It was hard to see the real him at first but as time has gone by, it's gotten easier and I'm glad it happened. There is always something good that comes out of life's challenges. :) I was a lucky one that never sent any money but he was trying.

If any of you meet someone online & they want you to switch to another site to chat, be sure to tell them that you want to VIDEO CHAT with them. If they are real, they will video chat with you!! Otherwise they will make excuses. You need to see them LIVE and in action. I even had one laugh "LOL" when I told him "only if you video chat with me". Never heard from him again.

Unfortunately for many, it will be too late by the time you read this but hopefully it can help someone.

He is the one
by: Wiser Now

I was on Twitter about six months when he came along. At the time I was trying to figure out what to do with the last quarter of Life and was very lonely and wanting Adventure but was just working and I was also trying to be a responsible person and save for my future as the experts say you should have a 20-year cushion of retirement savings so I was doing my part to be assertive and prepare for the future.

Jeff Blake came to me and was very very friendly and just started opening up conversations. I was feeling pretty good physically and I started responding to conversations he did ask me if I had children and he asked me about my situation. I told him a little bit but not a lot. But then one day he got very friendly towards me and he sent me information that he was an oil rigger engineer in the Shetland Islands north of the UK on a rig in the North Sea.

He explained that he was a supervisor running a crew 40 of men and that he was about 3/4 way with his project and that he also happened to be from the same state as I about 35 miles away and the more he would talk the more interesting I was since it was so close and his Avatar pictures were so handsome that I started responding in a very positive way towards him.

Then we started chatting everyday but just small talk at first and then it started getting sweet then started getting romantic and I found myself thinking about this individual during the day as he was starting to consume my thoughts and I started having Daydreams about this individual with his image in my mind was romantic and he started sending messages and I was being consumed with it.

About 3 months into it he asked for water on the rig as their water is not safe to drink and he needed bottle water of about 200 cases shipped over and it was for his men he said. So I went and shipped enough money to an agent to ship him 200 cases of bottled water for his men and after they received them these men were so so happy they were just singing happily drinking water on the rig because the water is no longer contaminated.

A month later and he requested in and he contacted me and he said that one of his men did not Grease the crane and that it was broken and that he needed Parts shipped as soon as possible so he could complete his contract and him being an engineer he had to sign and extend his credit limit. I Bartered with him back and forth for about 2 weeks for the reasons why I think that he could have borrowed money from his man or borrowed money from his Aunt somewhere else but after about 2 weeks he finally convinced me to wire a company in Daly City San Francisco California $10,000.

After a week he said he received the parts in his shipment but he then needed 9000 more dollars for technicians to fly in from Scotland to repair the crane so at this time I was really in deep and thick and so I felt like I had to complete the job so he could get his check and he did promise many times to pay me back with interest.

But before his check was deposited into the bank he was in a hotel room and needed hotel fare and then airfare to travel.

All along I thought that he was a real man and that the image I was talking to was real and that he was going to come and meet me and that we would start dating and courting and learning about each other and starting a relationship. I wasn't just going to jump into things real fast and once he arrived in the states I would do research but one day I found a tweet that said it's so and so. So I went to the Twitter address and oh my God I found the images that the man had been using on me for many many months.

Then I contacted the real man in the picture who is a business man in Fort Lauderdale FL and told him. He said that many times his images were stolen and used by scammers.

At this time I knew I was a victim of an oil rig engineer scam. I found this site and some other victims contacted me and joined some groups that help some but it is a very lonely walk and my money taken that has taken me over ten years to save is gone and I have suffered grief from being lied to, stolen from, and a broken heart. It will take five more years to save it back at double amounts and now I spend time trying to get something done but it seems Twitter and Facebook don't honor victims and they don't pull profiles quick and they do not send comfort or help and when we go to sleep who sees the tears and uncertainty but God.

This is a real true story one year after he took my money and I am not on my feet yet and still grieving but also there are bright days trust is a issue and I have not talked much with any man since.

But maybe some day I will find love but I do not want a oil rig engineer at all - maybe I will look for a therapist.

Scammed by Robert Lucas Gim from LAKELAND, COLORADO. Has a gmail account and uses "Hangouts" to communicate. Also his "daughter" Lisa1lisa2000@gmail.com claims to be an engineer on an oil rig near Scotland. Claiming to be German widower with a 16 yr old daughter in boarding school in Colorado. Says he is a private contractor on a rig. Used words with friends 2 to find me. Asked many questions about my beliefs, and said he believed the same.

Sent me poems and music and many lovely words to capture my heart. Spoke with me day and night for one week and claimed poor connections to be the reason for the breaks in conversations. Sent me 3 or 4 pictures of him and asked for my pictures too. Even sent a short video of himself at a work party.

Asked for iTunes gift cards once for 200.00 because he needed to use it for work paperwork. I fell for that but then he asked for 800.00 more and flags went up and started to wave. He was very persistent even when I did not send any more money and he talked of meeting me, getting married, etc. and called me his wife.

by: Anonymous

I must say that I am surprised you would need to ask if this person is real or fake. You were already scammed out of money and have had 13 different scammers contact you. If he says he is on an oil rig he is FAKE. It does not matter if it takes him two days, two weeks or two months, or even longer, eventually he will ask for an Itunes gift card, money for repairs, money to feed his workers as the supply company will no longer deliver food and water because he did not pay the bill.

Or, he has a package of gold and jewelry to send you but YOU have to pay the funds to get it delivered. But, don't forget, it is worth MILLIONS. Or, he has a sick child. Or he dropped his wallet over the side and it is in the ocean and there went all his credit cards. Or he has no access to the internet to contact his bank but yet he is playing Words with Friends, or is on HANGOUTS or Whatsapp. It goes on and on but it is all the same.

Don't be surprised if he is actually the original guy that you gave money to. They show up periodically with different identities and names. Don't be a fool again. None of them are real except in our minds.

And they LOVE to sext and have phone sex. Maybe that is the attraction for some women, but, I will guarantee you he is Nigerian. If not, then Ghana.

And if he is real, please let us all know.

Learn your lesson and start blocking them. If women would stop talking with them eventually they will stop trying and getting millions of dollars from vulnerable women.

Sorry if I sound harsh but they are disgusting poor excuses for men and I use the term men very loosely.

Was I scammed? NO. Not out of one dime and not out of more than two weeks. But I know three women that were.

I still hurt over this but I'm so cold I wonder sometimes where my heart went. Now I'm talking to someone who said he's on an oil rig but hasn't asked me for money. He sounds true but I can't find any of his photos anywhere so far.

Hi ladies! I'm glad it didn't last long for me and I didn't lose anything. I feel sorry for the ones suffering from a loss of money and feelings.
But i have a warning for the ones who are about to fall.

In my case the guy made the bank slip which looks real but when he sent the website of the bank, even if it is a decent one, don't focus on only the login at the bottom!! Because that's the only thing that works!

Because later I tried to click on the other links at the bottom but nothing happened!! A fake website!!

Also when the guy sent me the email of the customer service be careful because it is finished by @fastservice.com so does it look like a serious bank customer service for you ?! If it's related to a tax payment NEVER NEVER pay to a private account!! This is crazy and stupid !

Later I searched the pictures of the guy online and I found they are from a GUY in Thailand!! But the good thing is the real people are a loving family and a very well educated guy so I'm happy to see that. I am planning to contact and warn him about it. It serves as a happy ending for the whole thing.

So Ladies always believe that you are more smarter than you think if you keep your eyes open!

Oil rig scammer, Bryan Peyton
by: Anonymous

I was on hangouts with this nice looking, rig engineer from NC, widowed, 2 young teenage children, met him on WWF and convinced me to sign up on hangouts, claimed to be so lonely and was drawn to my photo of WWF and professed love in the first week.

He was a lovely sweet talker and can really rope a girl in, thankfully I'm older, wiser and gratefully still sharp enough to be sceptical as he was soon to retire after the last contract was finished and wanted to meet me.

I never ever planned to meet him and didn't. Next thing he tells me his machine broke down and he needed a large amount of cash to fix and how this big contract was his retirement money asked me for 10,000, but got a big no from me, all the while pleading his case, so I called him on it, the gig was up, we had a argument and we stopped texting, I never gave him my name or phone number no personal info.

A week later we started talking, then he tells me his teenage daughter was sick and he needed money to care for her, but again I didn't buy into it, but still kept texting and a few days later he wants his retirement money sent to me in cash supposedly directly from the company holding his contract, and it was a huge sum. Gives me the secretary's email, she tells me to give her my name address and phone number and the package would be mailed to me. A tremendous amount of cash. I was going along to see where this was heading and it was time to end it and I did, and I told him it was over, and he told me I wouldn't hear from him ever again, and I said I could live without him, so I blocked him from both WWF and Hangouts, and sounds like some illegal stuff in that game, so I feel sorry if he got to others who fell for It. Can't imagine how bad this could have been.

Then the show begins! After I log in there I found the money of his contract was right there. It even says it is from kuwait national petroleum! And there is also a profile of the account holder! Exactly the picture of Henry! Then I showed him the screenshot and he is so happy then sent me an account of an American company so I can do the transfer for him. I put everything I'm asked to and do the transfer, then I come to a websit that I need a code. I asked him he checked the email and told me, processing going on so again another website to ask for a tax authorization code!

I asked him but he said he didn't see that coming ! He gave me a email address of a custom service to write and ask, and I got the reply that because it is an offshore account before you can transfer with money you need to pay 1% of income tax first

Haha here it is! Good job Henry! I'm so curious that I played along with it. I asked how to pay then the reply that I need to tell my location so they can give the tax agent detail for me to pay! So I put china, and they reply that they don't have a agent in china now but they gave me a Private Chinese bank accoun !!

I laughed so hard ! This is ridiculous and is a insult to my intelligence if I believe in it! I told the guy that it is impossible for me to do that and I even told him that there are many things you need to improve lol.

Then I told him that the conversation is over and you didn't hurt me too much because it is only one week of talking and you need more patience lol but I hope you can realize how harmful this can be for the women who fall for this!

A new way to ask for money !
by: Anonymous

Hi ladies I'm so thankful to get into this website as it helps me how terrible that guy is !

I'm Chinese and speaking good English. I think these guys started to get into china now.
He has very good looking pictures but is more like Asian. His name is Henry Jian! His mom is a Chinese and died when he was 2 years old and his dad is originally from Kosovo but living in US, died two months ago. He was brought up by his grandma in Kosovo but went to US when he turned 12! He is working on the oil rig in kuwait! Nasty liar! I will skip the sweet part it makes me feel gross now though it just last for 2 weeks!

Just one day he suddenly told me that one machine broke down and he is stressed and then he showed me the bank slip that he received for the first installment payment from kuwait national petroleum, and it has very details info on it with signature and watermark it looks so real. But he didn't mention anything just want to share the success with you. But actually I already feel something wrong.

The next day he said he needed my help. He needed to log into the bank account for him to send money to a supplier so he can'buy the machine to finish up his work. I refused at the beginning. But he said he trusted me ok so still no harm for my money so I carry on. I open the website he sent and there and it is a pretty decent bank website and is callled kruzk bank, an offshore bank in UK.

Karl Henderson
by: Anonymous

I was scammed for 40,000 dollars from a man who's name is Karl Henderson. He said he WAS ON A OIL Rig IN NEW FOUNDLAND LABRADOR. He found me on twitter and started by asking me if i could transfer money from his account to pay for materials that he needed because the internet service was bad so he sent me an invoice to a metal company in Indonesia and gave me his bank info and I transferred 1,350,000.00 to the Co and it went thru so I thought that he had the money that he said.

They wanted 30,000 more dollars for shipping the materials so he begged me and I said no so he asked me to ask anyone that could help and he would pay 50% interest. I said no but he convinced me to lend him the money but I could only give him 20,000.00 I thought he had the money because of the money I had transferred for him and he said he couldn't get back into his account because he was locked out because when I tried to pay for the shipping out of his account it locked because I tried too many times because he gave me the wrong info So he made me feel I messed up things and that he would pay me right back.

It was all a lie so he asked whatever I could lend to him he would buy bitcoins to make 30000.00 I wired transferred money to a Man Named Lance Hayes who is in the us military and he would buy the bitcoins so he could pay for the shipping for his materials. I hired a private investigator and they did an image search and his picture was on 3 different LinkedIn profiles and told me I was being scammed and then another woman called me and stated she gave 12000.00 to them and its a ring of them and it seems no one wants to help so Im writing this in hopes no one else gets hurt the way we were.

Called my scammer out
by: Anonymous

I met my scammer on aol, and he sent a friend request and was the normal story of wife cheated on him with best friend and now divorced, and has a daughter. He said he was raised in Brazil and was on a rig ofshore from California. He called from a California number, has a deep voice with accent but was well spoken in English.

So after he wooed me for a couple weeks I searched the web and found this website and realize I was being sat by a scammer. I had searched the aol account he used and saw people that liked his postings and pictures were from Nigeria, so I called him out on it. Sent an email stating I knew he was a scammer and from Nigeria. I said my husband died a year ago and I was just looking for a friend. I said you broke my heart with lies and false promises. I Told him to never contact me again because he was a liar and fake.

Well I got a message admitting everything and he wanted to video chat and there he was a 28 yr old Nigerian man. He never asked for money and no longer has the fake aol account but who knows how long that will be gone.

I’ve been in contact with an oil rig engineer. His wife died and he has a daughter who is staying with his mom in London. He is from Ocala, Fl (if you knew this place you would laugh) and he is currently on an oil rig in Turkey. He’s suppose to retire this year and will be back in Ocala in about 2 weeks! He has sent pics of "him" with other people, "his mom", his "daughter", etc.

He says he’s looking for that one special someone, partner in crime, blah blah. I was googling oil rigs in Turkey when I came across this website and laughed at how similar everything was. He hasn’t hit me up for anything and wouldn’t even if he did.

You tell him you have no money and then the pressure is on.

I told him my daughter was a para legal who was familiar with inter-national contracts and did that ever shut him up.

So I will continue to be a no good and caring battle ax who will not help him out to save his daughter who is in boarding school. I wish I knew how to track his IP address

Jeffery Weeks is a scammer. If he contacts you RUN in the opposite direction. He wants itune or Amazon gift cards. He will eventually use the package scam where he needs you to contact the shipping company and or course pay for the shipment then it will be delivered to you on his behalf.

He claims to be from Florida then travels to Dubai for work on an oil rig. Says he is widowed and his wife and child died at childbirth. Handsome pics and a nice voice. But don't be fooled, he is a scammer! He will claim up and down that he is not.

No online footprint and his telephone does not register with Verizon, who he claims to be his service provider.

His number is 561-899-6462.

Okay ladies, I just wrote a couple of days ago about receiving underwater pictures, after talking with this person a week, he wanted to do sexting, but I refused. He loved me right away, met him on words. Has a 11 year old daughter, had a birthday last week. She’s with her nanny in Dallas, he’s on an oil rig in Mississippi.

Asked me today for a $100 I tune card to reboot his system, and can’t work until he gets the card.
I deleted him real quickly. He’s a scammer, and he’s good. The picture is of a handsome man with salt and pepper hair in a grey fleece jacket. Talked to him on the phone Friday, broken English. His name is Phillip Newman. Look at other comments with the same MO and with the name Philip, different last name.

Such a loser.

No wonder we jumped at the scammers attention in the beginning.

I am a very attractive woman of 64 as of today. They grabbed at my pic and off we went. Whenever they take me to hang outs without me saying so, I delete them. I am off all online dating now. I am sorry if I hurt any men, I know not all men are the same, I just haven't had any good luck with them.

Posting their stories on FB
by: Anonymous

You can do that. Just copy and paste them just like you are sharing a picture and put it public. I did that a few times and that is how I knew my scammer had many other's he was getting money from.

Now my scammer who got ahold of me said he is at Hill Island offshore in the arctic Archipelago Territory of Nunavut Providence of Ontario. And his Job being in the Gulf for BP did not pay him for over two years being there as the other in Norway did not pay him either because he left both jobs early.

So he needed iTunes cards and wanted money again. I said Absolutely No Way and he will not get another penny from me. One thing was he did not work for BP in the Gulf of Mexico. I have pictures of him and ones of underwater welding on pipes that got a leak and oil was going all over.

So Be care Ladies, as they are scum and low-life. Oil Riggers even if they are the contractor does not have time for any women outside their wife and Children as I was told from BP.

RE: Still confused...

I am still confused as to why anybody would think that a contracted engineer on an oil/gas rig would ever need to borrow money from us to complete a job. This should be a HUGE red flag for everyone.

I work in the same oil and gas industry these scammers are referencing and I can assure you that the contractors (engineer or otherwise) do not need to buy their own equipment or gear for the job. If they claim there is an offshore accident, trust me, it would be all over the news for you to verify. Not sure why these ridiculous scenarios tug at anyone's heartstrings, much less their purse strings.

Says he works on an Oil Rig in Brisbane Australia, has two children, a boy Sam who is 14 and a girl Alondra 16, and says they live with a Nanny at his home in Los Angeles and his wife died in wreck 5 years ago.

Contacted me thru FB and then insisted on talking through Hangouts. Claims to be Italian. Very nice, very good looking 56 year old man. Sent pics of him and his kids. Same as others have said and can only chat on hangouts because on the rig they cannot use cell phones. Claimed to be building some kind of drill. After about 8 days of talking of course he is very smitten with me and I'm the first woman he's had contact with since his wife passed.

To honor her he hasn't had any contact with women for the last 5 years and so on. He started out one day asking if I could help him get an ITunes card because he couldn't get one there for USA and wanted me to buy one and take a picture of it and send it to him thru our chat and that he needed it to update the app for Hangouts because he didn't want to loose contact with me because of the app messing up.

Of course he wanted me to send him 100.00 on the ITunes card, I asked why his children and Nanny that he talks to by email everyday couldn't do that for him and he gave me some excuse about daughter getting wrong card and Nanny not being very educated. I played him along and said let me see what I can do, I never sent a card. He continued to talk about when he gets home about the gifts he was sending me and etc etc etc. Then yesterday he told me he needed another favor, that the drill was messed up and it had to be rebuilt that the engineers told him it would be 15000.00

He said his office could only send him a check but he needed it cashed so he wanted them to send it to me to cash and then for me to send it to the engineers for him. He only had enough left on him for his plane ticket home in a couple of weeks. He even said he'd send extra to help me pay off some of my bills.

After I gave him some reasons why I didn't think I could let him send it to me he agreed we'd sleep on it and talk about it later but he really needed me to help him.

Well needless to say he has now blocked me on hangouts, no surprise there and his FB profile had disappeared after we started talking on Hangouts when I questioned that because I never accepted the friend request and he made some excuse as to he didn't want to talk to anyone else on FB only me so he deactivated the account.

I did go back on just now and check and the profile was back on it and I reported it to be fake. Very charming and knows all the right things to say. I would never send anyone I only knew just days money probably not months but I can see how easily someone could fall for it.

He was an engineer on an oil rig on Houston. Sound Familiar?? Very charming, wanting to move to my state, have a big house where we can entertain family and friends. Called every morning and every night. Once I connected with him he took down his Facebook page and wanted to communicate only on Hangout. He said his name was Anthony Shaw aka Jimmy Sides.

Small red flags here & there like no friends, never married, no kids, parents deceased, no family, born in Utah (then later said Italy) With thick accent although spoke very good English. Sent me a letter this am that was sent to him that they were in bankruptcy. Had me try to transfer all monies to his Canadian account and it said it was needed for a tax code. Emailed the bank for that and he would have to pay 10% taxes on the 2.5 million he had in there. He was crying and said he couldn’t pay them 250K and if I could help. Lol.

David Collins
by: Anonymous

Hello: I thought I would give further information on dating scammer David Collins from Pasco Washington.

I'm hoping that my information may help you to LISTEN TO YOUR RED FLAGS. Hard to do, I know.

David Collins, 55, living in Pasco Washington. Chemical Engineer. Widowed with 1 daughter, 19 living in Boston going to school. David said he is from Oslow Norway originally. Both parents deceased. No other family.

We spoke online and on the phone for about a month.

Things that were strange.

1. He had been living in the US for 30 years but still had a heavy accent.

2. All of his photos were model like, kind of. I asked that he flash me the peace sign in a photo and he was unable to do that.

3. He sent me a video of his daughter and himself cooking tacos yet when the video was on his face and he was talking his voice was deleted.

4. All engineers, in whatever discipline, are licensed by the state where they live (in the US). I was unable to find a David Collins in Washington or in Mass.

5. Absolutely no online presence of either he or his daughter. Strange. If you are living in the US and are over the age of 18 then there is some sort of information online about you. A 55 year old man would have a footprint.

6. He wanted to be the one that called. He did not like it when I called him.

7. Started asking for money when he was on an oil rig in the gulf coast because he left his wallet at home. Wanted me to get a Walmart gift card and give him the number so he could update his computer.

OK - I know, it took me 30 days to get to the point where I started listening to my intuition. I never sent him any money and funny, that was the last I heard of him. I had also asked him to prove to me he is who he says he is...nada.

I hope this helps anyone out there who is honestly looking for love in their life. Keep up the search just do it with eyes that are a little more wide open.

Andy Bryan WWF
by: Anonymous

Same scam as everyone else, works on ship in Gulf of Mexico, is widowed and had 2 children killed but had one daughter who goes to boarding school. He started chatting immediately, wanted my number, calls me dear. Says he is so comfortable talking to me and how he is feeling things he never has before since his wife died.

213-536-9921 and 706-223-0528 are numbers he is using.

Has been working around the clock but texts me when he needs a rest. Today he gave me the oh my room was broken into and all documents taken along with his wallet and credit cards. He is upset because he wanted to buy something for his daughters birthday and have a costume party for her but it’s in 3 days.

He didn’t ask for money because I told him about how banks work and that with Paypal and Venmo he could still sent money to get items.

Haven’t heard from him since.

Watch out for this scammer as he is relentless and will sweet talk your face off. He started on WWF and moved to hangouts. After ending it with him he contacts me again.

Strung him along until he asked again for itune cards. My guess is he's Nigerian. Blocked him on hangoutsand and removed the app.

Time to get on with my life.

My grandma was scammed
by: Anonymous

If she is sending money sent to her to this man, she is in danger of being arrested for being what is known as a mule. Please tell her if she is reported by a person she got funds from for the man she is in grave danger of spending her time in jail. I too lost all of my savings to a scammer and I would not listen to anyone telling me he was a scammer.

Now I am broke and barely making it each month. Then he wanted me to send other womens funds to him. When that didn't work he asked for my credit card numbers even though it was maxed out. He was going to pay it off for me. Another scam which I refused.

Then he wanted to send me funds to pay off his debt to me but he needed my bank account number. Sorry but I refused. He still contacts me asking for itunes cards but I have nothing to loan him. I am done having him fool me by all of his lies and will not be sucked in by him.

I was in contact with him for 5 almost 6 years. I no longer contact him and will never send anyone money again that I have not met and know personally. I know he has wedding plans for her. Mine even had me looking for houses but he kept saying he was going to be with me in weeks, which turned into months, more money and he never showed up for Christmases while he contacted other women.

Her man is doing the same to her. I was looking for my funds to be returned with interest. I've loaned him everything and all I have gotten in return is NOTHING!

My grandma was scammed
by: Anonymous

My grandma was scammed of her whole life savings. And this guy named Aaron Johnson who says hes widowed, has 2 girls who live with a nanny, and he says he is on an oil rig on the coast of California.

He sends my grandma money that comes from other woman and he wants her to send to another woman to be sent to him, its all a big circle and this guy is probably all the same guy. A Google hangouts, and google phone number. I have talked to him personally on the phone and he is clearly not from the states.

Its all a big scam and my grandma is finally listening to me as I am reading all of these stories. Im glad I can finally show her she is not the only one thats gone through this horror of these (I dont even wanna call them men).

I hope someone reads my story. There is also a David Garrick Harrison and a Dave Hendrix.

I'm onto these people and Im not giving up until they are done. Im guessing theyre in with isis so Be careful ladies

Justin Bruce
by: Anonymous

I thought I'd add my story. Justin said he was an independent contractor working on an oil rig in the Gulf. When we first started talking he was at home in Virginia. Getting ready to go to work on the rig. He was widowed, 2 kids, one in college in NC, the other one at boarding school.

And when they were on summer break and he was on the rig, they were looked after by a nanny! I did fall for it until my friends looked up the address he gave me and it turned out an old lady and her husband lived at that address. His phone number was a google one. We met on Instagram, and he then asked me to go to Hangouts, which I did, as I have a Gmail account anyway. The photos he sent me I checked out on Tineye and most of them were fake.

He wanted me to send him an iPhone X as his phone was playing up and he wanted to keep talking to me! Then he hit me up for the itunes cards. I didn't get him a phone, but, im ashamed to say, I sent him $300 of cards.

He was the first "stranger" I spoke to online, and, now the last. Reading your stories there are so many parallels with what he told me! He was good, I fell for him, hook, line and sinker. And nearly lost my friends in the process. Lesson learnt.

Need to Comunate by annomous
by: LynnAnonymous

I agree with you completely. I have written about my scammer on here a while back. He went by the name Emmanuel Steven and he used the profile of a handsome man who was bald with a beard, widower with two kids staying with a caregiver. No one to help him but me as no parents and an only child.

Same old story that he needed my help while on a rig off Aberdeen Scotland. He claims to be the same faith as me and I think that's one reason I believed in him so much. I fell deeply in love with him and it ruined my life financially but even more than that I am broken emotionally and having a real hard time getting over this.

I am so thankful for this site as after my original posting I was contacted by a lady who was also being scammed by the same man and she and I have become friends and talk often and try to support and encourage one another.

Never ever send money to anyone you don't know. I am posting names of the mules:

Gloria Acosta,

Benjamin Osuere,

Met him on Instagram and he quickly asked me to set up Hangouts so we could chat privately. He was a real charmer, sent me love songs and pictures of hearts and roses. He had a wonderful way with words and was truly believable. So asked for ITunes cards for medical reports for his daughter who had a rare bone condition.

I refused and called him a scammer. He even called me after I said I was reporting him. He bombarded me with his love texts and calls and it is so easy to get hooked. I am still trying to get over him. They know how to mess with your head so you are vulnerable. Lesson learned, never again, closed everything down now.

Scum Sucking Bottom Feeders
by: Ashamed and Humuliated

It all started in June 2018. I have no idea why I did it. I got SCAMMED! Frank Bob and Jack Owens
I am so ashamed that I allowed this to happen to me and my family.

They had me so convinced that I was going to be paid back. (I'm such an idiot). By the time September came I was ready to take my own life, as it was the only way I could think of a way out.
$120,000 dollars later.

I felt very alone and desperate, I was in a dark place and had made up my mind and set a date for my suicide. I also met a nice young mother of 3 boys on words with friends and we became real friends on Facebook. Two days before Sept 16 I sent her a private message only because I felt I had no one to talk to. My husband calls her "my angel" as then she reached out to him and told him how worried she was and said I needed some help.

It took him only a few hours of being persistant with me, all the while I was telling him I was going to "fix" this. He got it all out of me! I am so ashamed!

I'm still here today, not happy anymore though, but my husband became the rock I needed. "It's only money" he said, but you are "my everything".

Please anyone reading this be careful out there, the world can be a nasty nasty place.

Don't allow these bottom feeders into your life.
It almost cost me mine.

Turn the Tables and Scam the Scammer
by: Anonymous

Like everyone else on this site, I was also scammed. Fortunately, I never gave him a dime. Played along with him for many months. I knew he was a scammer after a few weeks of communicating because some red flags started waving and I did some research and found this site.

We haven't communicated for a long time and he is blocked. However, I saw him playing Words with Friends about a month ago. So, I decided to play a little with him.

I set up a new WWF game and used a profile picture of myself that I knew he would not recognize. I made up a new user name and identity and sent him a game request. I figured he would think it was a random challenge and he actually accepted it.

Next thing I knew, he was flirting with me and then he fell madly in love. Wanted to go to hangouts/gmail. I had gotten rid of my gmail and hangouts app a long time ago so I changed the name around and got a new one. Yes, I actually did it.

I cannot believe how his story played out. It was the EXACT same story, same daughter's name, same EVERYTHING!! The poems, the love letters, the texts. Of course he wanted my phone number, but I never gave it to him. I was afraid he would recognize my voice.

Well, it only took him a few weeks to ask for $5300 to feed and water his thirsty workers as he was cut off from his supplier because he did not have ALL the money! One of the same stories he gave me.

So today I plan on letting him know that he HAS BEEN HAD!! The same way he and all the other disgusting creatures treat all the women that they CON.

I doubt it will matter to him because they have no heart, soul, feelings or conscious but I still think it will get him!! Oh and I will not tell him who I really am. I plan to tell him that I am ONE of the women he scammed and ask him to GUESS WHICH ONE!!

Oh, and to make it even funnier, he actually sent me a WWF game request (to the real me) to let me know the next day would be his birthday. He asked me to PLEASE send him an Itunes gift card. HA HA. Yes, I will get right on that.

Ladies (and any gentlemen that may be reading this), I do not feel at all bad about setting up a new identity for this purpose. I did use my own photo (and only had one). To say it feels good, is an understatement!!

So, in a few hours from now as I figure out what I am going to say, I will send him an email and BOOM, maybe, just maybe, he will know how it feels to be used.

Oh and he did send me all the bank information on the agent for the supplier so I plan to report that to the bank. I did that before with him and reported his MULE. And reported her to the FTC. I hope they investigated her. And, I am going to do the same to this one. This time it is a guy with a Nigerian name. Or maybe it is a woman. Who knows.

Just wanted to share this with you all. And as soon as I send him the email I am blocking him from WWF and on Hangouts and Gmail!!

Still would love to see his reaction but not sure I wanted to hear his ugly words!!

To the lady who believes this Philip is in love with you. He is the same scammer I had. I was to drive down and Pick him up also but I said no because I called BP as my lawyer did also.

As you said they do not need money to fly off the Rig. He is a Big Time Scammer and I Mean Big. I talked to this lady that got scammed over 15 grand from him, I did not lose as much as she did. Oh yes he wanted to get married as soon as he came home to me and he was going to give me all my money Back.

I am sorry you're hurting but you need to get rid of him Fast because it will not stop. He knows how to play on Women's feelings and knows exactly what to say we want to hear. Please for your own sake delete him, Block him.

And giving him your cell number I would get that changed too for he can use that. Sad he is still at it. Tell him Sunshine said hello he will know.

Mark Gaspar is my scammer 1-850-397-3110 markgaspar193@gmail.com. On the oil rig Kittiwake. Met on FB then moved to Hangouts. Texted four times a day, sometimes 5, and called me once a week or so. Exchanged pix, he was my king, I was his queen, Poems, sweet talker, elaborate slide-show, extra pix of flowers, candies, etc. Daughter in Seton Catholic boarding school, Alandre (even received emails from her).

Mark's agent Carol J. Weston 17704 Bay View Dr., Park Rapids, MN56470 Northwood Bank of Mn.
1.5M in an account inactive, deposit made by Shell Oil. Need to pay activation fee of $6800. Mark gave me his acct#, ID code and password and yes it showed it all in there.

Always a problem. iTunes cards to use on the rig computer and for communication. Last Cashier check went to a Halifax Bank in Woolwich, London, that one was signed for at front desk, but the person it was intended for hasn't cashed it yet. I have to wait 3 months to place a STP maybe get some back?

Very elaborate, yes there were red flags, but I was so in love with him, and still am. He was so good, on point, and knew what to say no matter what the situation was. Put a tell-all out on FB so all my friends and family would not friend him and delete but they have thank God.

Watch out for these guys they are scammers. They will tell you that they are out on a rig and having trouble with equipment and will need money. They will pay you on their return to the states. They always need Itune cards. Then they will need money to get the crew off the platform with helicopters. Which will take thousands.

These guys are smooth talkers and say all the things you would like to hear and they fall madly in love with you in no time and make promises of marriage and happily ever after. Don't fall for it ladies.

It will not only cost you money but it will break your heart. I was taken in and I'm ashamed about it and I have met another nice lady that was taken by one of these guys as well and we are friends now and we want to warn everyone we can so they don't get hurt in the same manner by these scumbags.

There are a lot of videos on You Tube out there about this. They all use the same stories, etc.
If you know the woman’s name who you sent money to, report it to the FBI cyber crimes division.

Phillip
by: Anonymous

I have been talking to Phillip for about eight months now. He is trying to get money out of me ever since a month of us meeting. First he said that he needed money for his contract tax levy. Gave me an agents name acting as the BP oil platform safe House. I had someone emailing me wanting money and he said for me to pay $1500 for his contract tax levy that they would not give him a copy of his contract unless he paid this money.

Over the months he said that he was not eating and to send him money so he could pay for food and give me a woman’s name to send the money to. I contacted her and she knew that I was supposed to be sending money. She was a realtor who used to live in Orlando area. I was supposed be sending $750.00 for him to get food and I was sending the money to the private vendor who supplied the food on the BP oil platform that he was on.

After speaking to her she convinced me she was sending the money to some guy in Nigeria and she told me that they’re all black and that Phillip is not who he says he is. I confronted Phillip who called me through duo and video chatted with me. He is white from Australia and he looked just like the picture he sent me. He always asked for iTunes cards.

At one point I remember saying to myself this guys on my weekly payroll. I lost that job and now I cry as I have no money. He told me he needed $1500 to fly off the platform on a helicopter that he was coming home to me. He told me to drive to Louisiana and go to the BP oil helicopter pad.

I drove from Florida and it was 14 hours and I finally got in at 2 o’clock in the morning and got a hotel for the night. He was texting me and excited he was to start his life with me. I was so excited nothing could stop me from going to pick him up. I arrived at the BP helicopter pad at 9 o’clock in the morning as I was instructed to do by Phillip. I sat there all day watching men come off the helicopters until 5 o’clock that evening when the last helicopter flew in.

The woman at the BP helicopter pad was so nice and looked up to see if he was scheduled to fly out that day but they could not find his name anywhere. They told me I was scammed and they told me that it doesn’t cost them money to fly off the platform and that BP pays for it. As I started my journey back to Florida so tired so exhausted and I have had three open-heart surgeries in the past and one surgery recently in November 2017 which He knew of my health condition because we spoke about it a few times.

I couldn’t stop crying and pulled over to a rest area and fell asleep crying. By that time I was texting him with no response. I drove 28 hours in 2 1/2 days. When I finally made it home I got a text message from Phillip stating he feel like such a bad person for putting me through that and he was sorry but he could not get to a phone because he got into a fight and was detained.

I fixed up my house and was getting it ready for him to come home to me. I went out and bought a new king size bed just for us and I have not been with anyone in 10 years.

He contacted me on tinder dating website. He contacted me asking for my email Address when I first started talking to him. Yes I got the love poems every day and at the bottom of the love pomes was a link to songs every day.

He asked me for my number and we started texting and he would even call me but when I tried to call him he used a Google phone number. He has sent me pictures of him but I had to beg him for them during the 8 months of talking. He has asked me to marry him when he comes home. I fell so deeply in love with him. I want to delete him but ever since he did a video chat with me I keep holding on just in case he will come home to me. I’m an educated woman and I cannot believe I fell for this. I know deep in my heart that he may be a scammer but I keep holding on and Praying that he is real and he will come home soon.

If he is a scammer I feel like I’ve wasted eight months of my life. My precious life. Please help me. Has anyone spoken to someone who is called Phillip.

He said he was widowed and that his wife died in a car accident. He has one son who is going to school in Norway. He has an uncle who is in a coma and an aunt and his sons name he calls Alex. He tells me he needs iTunes cards to back up his work and to call his son to check on his sick uncle and aunt who is elderly. He told me he is a contractor on the BP oil platform in the gulf of Mexico.

On tinder he says that he is 53 years old and from Naples Florida which I live 45 minutes away from Naples Florida .

Mine is called William Morgan. His photos show a very attractive man, must admit should have gone with my gut instinct 'too good to be true' and the number I have is 1-929 267 7595.

And yes like others I feel a total fool! So am playing to see how long this goes on for or until I get bored. And yes I would like to know how and where they get the photos.

As soon as I blocked this person going by Ernest Depmsey on Instagram and Ernest Dempsey they can get you on Instagram ernestdepmsey147. I looked up Assured Energies and no such thing. Clicked on the address on his profile and nope. There’s other people from this company following him. It’s crazy how you get sucked in! The faster you block them the faster you let them go.

Believe me I tried to find one shred of truth because I didn’t want to believe it. Mine had elements of other stories. So look out for this guy. He’s also on facebook with no friends just a picture. I feel sorry this dude who’s pictures are stolen.

Watch out for a CLINTON ANDERSON!!!!!
(361) 861-5039

He found me on Yahtzee, and we started with small talk, then after a few days, he said it would be easier to chat on whatsapp since he travels for work as a oil rig contractor.

Has a daughter Cindy 7, from his second marriage, divorced because she is a drug addict.

First wife was in NYC and was hit by a car. Both parents are gone and he is an only child.

I know it sounded too good to be true, but went along with it for a couple of months, until last night he asked for $ to fix the machines that broke down on the rig.

He was robbed when he arrived in Scotland so he needed $ to get these machines fixed. So after a few months of wooing me he finally asked for $, and I told hime No and that I didn't have to give him.

He begged and cried that he needed the $ or he would lose this job that would pay him $6 million. And if I could send him $7 thousand that he would double it when he got back to the states!!

I said NO I don't have it and he then hung up on me.

Many names of scam
by: Moon lighter

First I would like to say that they are everywhere on the internet on all social media accounts and dating sites everywhere just like Spiderman climbing in when we are unaware. They are charming words and convincing words to move you and it is like a play that is well rehearsed.

They pull you in a bit at a time brainwashing you little by little and lie after lie and we get caught up. We actually enjoy their attention and we start thinking about him and little cravings for more get started that somehow hook us.

Here are some names to watch for on Twitter and Facebook. It breaks my heart that older women on fixed income or widows get ripped off so nobody is safe.

We need to form groups to go to the Government leaders and demand justice somehow or maybe get the oil companies behind the victims and veteran groups as something HAS to get done.

These are the names of known scammers he could be one man or could be group of thieves working together.

@Jakewaller60 on Twitter
@jefreynorman on Twitter
@KennethDuncan44 on Twitter

After about 2 weeks I said look I need to speak to you or whats the point. We arranged a call and he rang dead on time. It was quite funny because his fake accent went from Bronx to Italian lol.

After a minute he says he has to go as there is an emergency and he then sends me a google photo of oil rig on fire lol.

He then messages me and says he needs to get a part and could I lend him 3000 pounds lol.

Oil rig scam
by: Anonymous

Contacted by georg44324 on plenty of fish. Quickly moved to text messaging, his #424-703-5062. Just one day of texting, wife died in childbirth, son is with a nanny in those islands, he is on an oil rig in Germany, talked a lot about god, he would be home for the holidays. Asked what I do for work, if I owned my own home. Said I ask a lot of questions.

His parents died in 1995 and he's all alone. The more he talked the more I knew it was a scam. He got my friends address through my Wi-Fi and friend requested her in facebook. Exact same pictures.

Name on Facebook is Anthony Graham. I blocked him and denied a friend request. Ladies beware! He has probably changed his name by now. But ladies please don't fall for this scamming stuff.

He will scam you out of every dime you have. He will ask you to visit the rig. Have you send a letter from your doctor stating you have no traveling restrictions. Text you and ask you questions to get a security clearance. He will tell you he will repay you for the ticket and any other money you have sent with interest.

The trip never happens and you never receive any money from him. He is still playing WWFs. Is sitting on a lounge by with a pool in the background, wearing a red tee & shorts.

So far his daughter was in a terrible accident, I didn’t give money, and he called me heartless.
So I decided it was my turn to play him, and I apologized and said I have medical issues that prevent me from donating out extra cash, and played the pity game.

He was in my clutches then! So yes The iTunes thing was a thing, I said no.

He asked me to look for property for him and his two kids, - extravagant I might add. He asked me about my finances, and I told him I live from disability check to disability check, with no extra funds.

Today he was a bit more demanding and needed money to fix parts on the oil rig. I said the oil rig belongs to the company your contracted by, why did they not fix it? He said I asked too many questions.

So I guess he’s done with me!! But I did get in the last question and about his life, and I’ve received no answer.

I had a similar experience with a guy called Steve Matt Denzler. Claimed to be half Swiss half American living in Houston and working for Arnold Oil Company. We met on Tinder and he quickly moved it to WhatsApp.

The pictures turned out to be fake and the story far fetched.

But when he called and spoke to me he was so convincing I think even he believed himself! Be careful as they are super smart and everything he showed me was well prepared.

by: Kevin B

There are a few similarities with most scammers.

Often First and last names are like first names.

Always pander to feelings of sympathy with wife dead and sometimes a child. Or have a child being cared for by nanny or relative.

Meet you on a site and wants to talk off site immediately or when you emotionally connect so you will not be monitored.

Tells you not to tell friends or family about him or her because they will be jealous. Actually because friends and relatives will tell you the truth. A scammer whether asking for money, I Tune Cards to convert to cash or open an account they put money in to be illegally laundered in your name and you will get zero and maybe jailed.

Any other suspicions use a friend to bounce off of. Those who REALLY care for and love you.

My scammer befriended me on Words with Friends. Had a decent profile picture, we chatted on there for a bit before chatting through email. I asked for ID verification, facebook, internet, nothing would bring up his name.

Same story, wife died, he was 58 with an 8 year old son. Didn't ask me for money, just said he'd travel to take me on a romantic date when he got off his rig contract.

The more I talked to him, the English was broken, things he said didn't make sense, but definitely a romantic. Didn't talk to him long, but he never did ask for money. I guess he could pick up on my stand-offishness, because I kept bringing up I could verify who he was.

Finally I was able to search the image of the picture he sent me and wha-la! Low and behold, here comes the story of the Oil Rig scammers.

Stay tough ladies, ask questions, verify their identity. You can seach white pages and find a name, age and basic information. Heck, a majority of people these days have Facebook or Twitter. Do your diligent research!!

Lawson Morris marine engineer and scammer
by: Anonymous

What can I say, ladies. You are native english speakers, and me - not - so not easy to understand the level of scammers English. I met "Lawson Morris" on the Okcupid dating site. Such a nice guy, 50+, marine engineer, works for Maersk, offshore drilling somethere close to Jakarta. Widowed, his wife dead from breast cancer, son Eric with registered nanny, parents also dead, everyone dead.

He was super cute, and we texted a lot for about 4 days, but you cannot call from the ship? Really? You use company customized devices - so what?:). All these small things made me nerveous so I did a google image search - oishhhh, he is a well known scammer, with a thousand names and the same story.

He even gave me the name of the ship - Maersk Venturer. According to marine radar the ship is not near Jakarta - its close to Ghana.

Eric "his son" doesnt learn in the school he named in Compton CA. And of course, there is no Lawson Morris in Compton at all.

So I said to him good luck you ugly scammer, and guess what? He began to call and text me - i love you, come on, honey

I deleted him in Hangouts.

I was contacted through Messenger by David Jackson. He was interested in establishing a relationship since we were both widows and had kids near the same age. He said he would prefer to text because he didn't always have internet access. So we switched to texting.

I became suspicious when his Facebook page and his Messenger conversations disappeared. I confronted him about being a scammer and wanted proof that he wasn't. He sent me a selfie which matched the Facebook page. He was working on an oil rig off the coast of the Ukraine, so he sent me a photo of his passport. I was surprised since your social security number is on it.

He was quite the romantic with lovely verses professing his love. Then he kept wanting to get married right away. I said I needed more time. He said he wanted a wife not a girlfriend. I told him if all he wanted was a wife there were catalogs for that and that the Ukraine has quite a few.

I then compared his passport to my own and found several errors: the surname was under the given name, the given name was under the surname, there were no lines going over the photo. I then did a search on the social security number: 455-44-2291 and found it belonged to a Carl Allen 2/6/1927-4/1/1987.

This social could not belong to the passport owner because his birthdate on the passport was 3/16/1963. At this point I had not been asked for money, but I am sure it was coming. My concern was if this social security number has been given to an infant or small child and having their identy ruined. I still have all the conversations, selfie, and photo of passport. Some of the conversations are embarrasing to me but I am willing to turn everything over to stop this scammer.

I filed a report with the FTC and the FBI.

Herry Matthews
by: Anonymous

My rig engineer’s name was Herry Matthews. He friended me on Fitbit. He had no recent activity and 3 pictures any woman would like. Roses on a beautiful table setting, his 12 year old daughter, and a workout photo. A widower with one daughter. Believes and professes faith in God. Originally from Qatar but does business in New Jersey and has been here 8 years now.

Asked me if I had a home and a car. Ha ha. Wanted me to go on Hangouts and asked for my number. Wouldn’t do either. After 5 days he tells me I’m the love of his life and he asks me to be his wife. I deleted and blocked him. I saw in his friends list that we had a mutual friend and I messaged her and he was doing the same routine with her. She’s hooked however and I’m not. So sad.

He’s on Hangouts so beware.

Oil Contractor Norwegian ....
by: Anonymous

Well this site is so good I recently have had what I think is a scammer talking to me. I have absolutely loads of pictures and have done an image search on them all but nothing but I am sure he is a scammer. He is supposed to be Norwegian but living in the UK, lost his wife 6 years ago and of course he has the token one daughter but she is in her twenties and lives in Germany.

He is now supposed to be on a contract in Amsterdam (yes of course he is lol). I laugh at the rubbish sent to me and equally I can see I am frustrating him by not giving the information he wants. The declarations of love for me are hilarious. The only thing that bothers me is, that some poor guy has had his profile and pictures stolen and I wish I could let him know. I have spoken to him and it was a very American accent and he called me Babe and Hun. I am sure Norwegians don’t use these terms and speak with American accents though when I asked I was told ‘I went to an American school ‘ (oh yes, of course you did lol). Oh and daughters name is Peggy and sisters name is Rose and oh again, so Norwegian. Keep talking everyone as it’s the only way to expose these idiots.

I would be really be interested if anyone else has something similar and compare pictures. I really want to let the person whos profile is being used know and have tried all the searches. Thanks for reading .

Bruce Wellington is a SCAMMER now on Zoosk. Using this letter format below that is the #1 used by ALL scammers for their first contact. Zoosk could care less. BEWARE!!

"I do appreciate this consistent communication and I will say it is a sign of will, and I tell you where there is a will there is success ahead. I believe we both know that Love is not a destination but a journey and this is a journey that takes two to walk. I mean two souls who understand ahead that they aren't in for a kid walk, and what they have ahead is the most important mission in life. A place meant for true people, it is a place called joy and happiness.

I enjoyed reading this wonderful piece of your life synopsis and I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. I so much appreciate your honesty, sincerity and openness in your last email. This is one thing I feel a lot of couple do not have EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION and HONESTY. This two are a good foundation to a lasting relationship, and I am happy we have started on a good note.

I try to play golf when I am less busy, sometimes play pool at home as I have a pool board at home.

As I could remember, as a kid I was a very cute one, lol. One whom many bullies would target, but only to realize there is a tough side to me. I could make a sober person dance. I could affect one with my smile. I grew up having more older friends. Many would confide in me. To tell you, I'm a type that doesn't judge. no matter how dirty you may be, just come clean to me, and I will give your support.

There is no Mr right until we make him right. A relationship is never about how much at the beginning but how much we could make it grow into. My grandma would tell me, if you aren't ready to feel or look stupid, then don't fall in love, lol. But sincerely that is the bitter truth. Before I lost my wife, she told me that the fact that something good ends doesn't mean something better can't start. Can you prove that right? I have come to realize that, let a man write a better book, let him preach a better sermon, let him sing the best of songs, let him gain wealth beyond dreams, he is reduced to nothing except he has a woman to call, my wife, my best friend and co pilot.

My usual saying, and I am known for it, is that. Life is simple, for those who take it simple. I don't like to complicate things. There is joy in every situation if you know the right angle to look it from.

I can’t wait to have a happy home right now. I’m a civil engineer, I was born in Germany and relocated after my wife died of ovarian cancer. I was waiting to meet my soul mate, then we will decide were the both of us will live. But I lived in a three bedroom rented apartment in Riverside California.

I want to spend the rest of my life having fun. Would you stand by me to build a home? Would you smile at me when I look tense? I don't need a super model, I rather need a very good friend who knows when I am tensed just by looking into my eyes and a super woman. The whole world may be mad at me, but if you are smiling at me, I would care less.

Who says we can't design our own paradise together? It is workable just walk by my side...

Bruce."

Scam or Not
by: Anonymous

Do you really believe in this guy that he is asking for money from you even though he has said he loves you? Think of how many other women he has said this to besides you. I am sorry but you will be making a Big Mistake if you send him one Penny because him asking for more and more will never stop.

I hope you have read all these letters of Oil Riggers. Regardless if he is an Engineer Contractor or what, he is not real. I wish not to hurt you with my words but I wish not to see your heart broke or being taken for money. I just had one this week tell me American women are weak, for he asked me for money and I said NO flat out. He said fine he will find one that will send him money, but I did report him to FB. Sent his exact words to them.

You must feel in your heart he is a phony, yes we love to her them words like I love you, but that's just it, they are just words with no feelings from a stranger on the net trying to get money.

God Bless and Please be careful.

Rob Schmit
by: Anonymous

He used Rob Schmit as a name to contact me. Also business on the sea and called a sub sea contractor oil business so traveling a lot. With a daughter, 20 years old. Divorced because wife betrayed him when he was traveling. Looking for a good woman. Currently on the sea of Spain for work. Won’t be back until three weeks later. Use WhatsApp and a phone no with area code 415 but link with a city in LA.

Suddenly he said don’t use WhatsApp, use 415 phone no. He called but accent sounds like Indian or Turkish accent, which lead me to doubt about his identity. He then sent me a passpoport link with his photo, which is different from the first photo he sent. I couldn’t link his accent with his photo. He said he is from Luxembourg, mom is an Indian.

I am not sure if this a scam for money only or some company wants to establish a new dating site so send their programming engineers to lure us into their customer survey for match making preparation in the future- now it’s proven a prank apparently

He will be on instagram and look very handsome and say his daughter has heart issues, wife died of cancer three years ago. Also he’s on snap chat with a phone number ‭+234 706 189 7545‬ and will use a gmail spenceoil95

He will be smitten with you and need to be with you and send songs and will want to know your full name right away, and age and if you live alone.

He will act like his phone is broke where he can’t video chat or send a photo of a date or your name with his photo. He will say he’s injured on the rig or his daughters health got him into problems. I suspected in less then a few days he wasn’t legit. When I wasn’t gonna talk to him he hurried and called me, but he’s stupid because now I had his actual number that gave me his snap chat account.

And he is a Nigerian man not a UK white man. So yea good luck and hope you don’t get scammed.

Change in modus operandi
by: Anonymous

There seems to be a shift in the way these scammers are operating. I was approached by "Ben" on Over 40's Dating. He said that he had met a wonderful woman through the site, but his friend "Adam" needed to meet a truly special woman and he gave me "Adam's" contact number. I suspect that they were one and the same person.

I gave him a call, and he told me that he was Hungarian (he did have a European accent) and had come to South Africa for work. His wife had died in a tragic accident, he had a 12 year old son living in California, he had worked in South America, but SA was so beautiful and he wanted to settle here. He worked on ExxonMobil in Sandton Johannesburg. RED FLAGS!

He contacted me again in the evening with the usual "Hello dear" nonsense- RED FLAG and asked me if I had had dinner - RED FLAG. I asked him where he was. "I am in Doha". Huh? I told him that I had a friend who worked at ExxonMobil and she didn't know of him. "Oh no dear, I work in Exxon Mobile UK".

He proceeded to tell me that he had been in a board meeting all day, had a terrible headache and has to rush off to Botswana to relieve a colleague who went for an emergency operation.

He was talking in circles. Looking back he made such a fool of himself. Stupid idiot.

Needless, to say I blocked him. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Ladies, stay vigilant and trust your instincts. The stories these people spin are evolving.

Got contacted by a Jack Peterson on Words with Friends2. Immediately wants to know if I'm married and how old I am. Asked me to go on Hangouts to be able to chat better and share photos. Says he's 58 and his wife, son and sister died in a car accident and now is looking for someone to spend the rest of his life with. He says he has 16 year old twin girls. Says he's working on an oil rigs in the sea of Aberdeen off Scotland and is the supervisor there to 30 men. Also says he was Italian.

Romances you with love quotes taken off google. After two weeks he said I was his soulmate and wanted to settle down with me and his kids after his contract finishes. Tells me he's been having trouble with a crane for a couple of days. Now he wants $2000 to help pay to get it fixed and I'm his only hope and that men were injured. Now he hardly has said a word to me since I said I couldn't get him the money. But I did receive a message he was so stressed and couldn't sleep but I noticed he was playing Words with friends.

I've contacted women who have him as a friend on there and they too have had the same questions by him. I did a reverse image search and found him on a dating site under the name John, aged 53 and there was more photos of him. I noticed a name in one of the photos and did a Facebook search and it turns out to be a bridal shop in Italy and this guy was in the photos.

He's stolen this guy's identity who looks to be a wedding dress designer and rich so he doesn't need to scam women.

First of all Thank You Kevin for putting your statement on because every word is true.

As For James, Oh he is good to believe me. If he is in the Gulf that he says and has moved on to another Oil Rig outside of Ontario he is the Biggest Scam Artist I have seen or met on here. He even called me his wife, Honey, Sweetheart, always My Love, Always a Good Morning, how he had a sleepless night thinking of me. I would say I slept wonderfully, and that would get him mad.

There never will be another in his life. He sent me many many songs and poems which the poems were always found on the net. We argued too a lot. As I said before he sent me a picture of welding under water because the pipes were leaking oil in the Gulf and it was a lot I guess according to him. How he will never share his love with no other women, that is what all Nigerian's say to you.

So if you hear that phrase know it is from a Nigerian or someone in Ghana, as they use it all the time. I Have read so much on these guys and it all goes back to Nigeria.

Please take care, as these men are not worth the ground you walk on. They are loser's who don't want to work for a living but scam women and men in the States. I talked to the FRSC in Nigeria and they said nothing can be done as it is not illegal for their men to do that.

It's our fault for falling for it. I am so Leary of any request from a man and again I always look at the likes, it will say Austin Texas but every single like is from Nigeria, so check it out for sure. God Bless

You will be asked for money or I tune cards. If he offers to send you money if you set up an account you will not be able to get to the money but your name will be all over it. It's what we call money laundering and you will go to jail.

Remember most of these guys have two first names for their first and last, are widowed somehow or divorced, have one kid that lives with a nanny or Grandma. 1 year and you have not met this man yet a man who could have any woman in the world with his millions chooses you right?

But when he comes to see you he will need money guaranteed. And it will be guaranteed he will never show up.

Baruch Shalev
by: Ewelina

I have become approached by a scammer. I have pretty good instinct and I knew from the start that the guy who is contacting me is very wrong. I decided to search and I am so glad that I found here similar history and someone else was contacted by the same guy.

This time he was trying to sneak under the different name but he is a total idiot as he sent me an e-mail in which he introduced himself as Baruch Shalev while the e-mail address was RobertoSchmit. This alone was enough to know he is laying. The story fits with Rob Schmit Oil Services scam who is searching for women on Linkedin and is reaching out to connect for other reasons than business.

Another reason to not trust this scammer. And yes he introduces himself as a German- American who is a contractor for different oil companies and apparently he is the CEO now. His life focus and dream is to retire and buy a house for millions of dollars in some exotic place. I contacted Linkedin, and will try to report to Cyber Security - but be aware he is there trying again and he may use a different name.

Another scammer, not on an oil rig
by: Anonymous

I have been talking to my scammer for six months, fell in love with him. He loved me, I was his life. His name is Donald Hedlund, widowed, no children. He said his wife died at childbirth. Both parents dead. No siblings, no aunt or uncle or cousins. Said he lived in Goldberg Nevada, no such person by that name lives in Goldberg Nevada.

Says he’s a civil engineer and builds houses, says he built one in London for a client and got paid with a international check, can’t cash it. Lives with his "agent", after I paid his hotel bill. The London cops confiscated his passport because he owes taxes on the money he can’t get because of the check. Says he can’t find work anywhere because of the type of work he does. Went to the embassy to see if they could help him financially, he says he doesn’t carry his drivers license or a debt card from his bank back in the states because of complications with a relationship he had a year ago, and the embassy wants his banking information to help him depositing his check, so he asked me to send the embassy my banking info so he can deposit the check in my account and send him money to pay his taxes to come home.

He is now blocked and deleted. I have names and account numbers that will get reported. He has broken English, small i’s in his conversation, will not face time and I’ve only spoken to him on the phone 3 times in six months, he says the connection is always bad.

Just a heads up ladies, he’s on messenger. Block him, he’s a smooth talker and won’t ask for money right away. He wants you to feel sorry for him because of his "situation ", he can’t get "home". He’s 48 years old, very handsome.

Sounds like my scammer who stole most of my money being in contact with me for 13 months. Already disappeared one and half year ago. Similar problems to pay for, underwater picture of him fixing a pipe, yes remember that. He called himself James too. He had no one to help, big contract and everything went wrong and always needing money. His mule was in China after some in US were investigated and had to return money to me then he stuck with a China woman mule. All was fake. Photoshopped pictures, fake documents, fake bank account where he had money he could not get released and needing to pay huge amounts to get it released.

He was Nigerian mostly phoning with an unknown number, a couple of times with 234 country phone code, maybe mistake not even knowing it showed. I am sure he is still scamming. He was very patient but sometimes too pushy. After he got most of my money and disappeared, he came back five months later asking for more saying that he left me with some money. Not his money but mine, never gave him more, could not afford bankruptcy.

To the person who wrote James on August 10
by: Wiser Now

Please tell us how the mule got arrested? I have mules too. Maybe your information will help in this. I am "Wiser Now " ask Steve for my email address and he will give it to you.

I too am a victim of oil rigger engineer scams and lost my shirt. Recovering but it is slow cause I need to replace my IRA so my nest egg will grow. When I helped the oil rigger engineer out he promised to pay me back when he got to America and of course it was all lies. If the lies were counted there were hundreds of them and if the promises that were broken were counted it was hundreds of false promises just to get me to send the money by Western Union and Money Gram. But I need to know how you got the mule arrested please. He had many mules and it would be great to see them talk to save them selves.

We have to stay to together as victims and I am on a Facebook page where there are over 600 victims of oil rigger engineer scams and other scams mostly all women. We are a target for them and they use lies and deception and I heard they cast spells using VOODOO and even west Africa magic. How do they manage to get into our minds and hearts as they do?

We can report them to Western Union and Money Gram getting the names black flagged and also turn it into the police department and go to Scam Haters and www.anyscam.com to report to but we need results. But we need to band together as this is war on women mostly from the country of Nigeria. I really dislike Nigeria now.

But if you are a victim get help and join a group and get support because it takes time to recover our hearts. God bless you all and keep your chin up. Let us all fight back with the truth fighting their lies.

These two people are the same. "Brian" contacted me through "Chances Are" a women's divorce support group. That was the first "fishy" clue. He explained he misunderstood when he signed up.

We texted for about 2 months. I got the same story: contractor for Chevron, working on oil rig, needed money for import duties. Sent me the picture of the check too. I also got the family pictures with the cute little dog. He also said his wife died in a car accident and daughter was living in the U.K.

He said he was in love and wanted to be with me forever. I knew it all was "fishy", but it was fun for a while. Texting with him kept my mind off things for a while.

He asked for money twice. Both times I said no. Be careful ladies. This guy was good. He seemed real. I didn't give too much personal information, but he used whatever I sent him to reel me in. I knew in my heart it was all bull, but he was very good at "courting".

I kept trying to check out his story. He did have a LinkedIn page, I never signed up to check it out. I did look up the routing numbers on the picture of the 408 thousand dollar check he sent me. They matched the bank address. The Chevron address matched. Even the signature is a person who works for Chevron. After he asked for $$ the second time, I did more research and found this site!

These guys are good at what they do and they get us when we're vulnerable. Always be careful ladies!!

Cedric Edison auf LinkeIn
by: Anonymous

linkedin.com/in/cedric-edison-4b757275

Cedric Edison - is still active. He was my first scammer last year and I fell for him. I had met him on xing!

Contact went on for 5 months, after 3 months he had gotten an order in Turkey. Totally romantic correspondence, long phone calls, pleasant rough voice, pretends to work as a contractor for Gunvor Raffinerie in Geneva, Switzerland. Repairs oil pipelines! Widowed, two children 6 and 8 years old, living with his 80-year-old mother and a nanny in America. Very very romantic letters, it picks you up emotionally, you can't resist this charm.

In Turkey and problems with machines that came from China had to be triggered at customs and he still needed 30,000 € from me. His friends had allegedly paid him most of the huge sum. Then he became very ill because he worked unprotected in the "burial". He tells the work stories very credibly, I have checked these things often. Then he had to go to the hospital, which he never gave up. Then after he was discharged from the clinic had no more money for hotel and food. I lost my credit card, I sent him 300,-€. Their money picked up his best friend in Istanbul! Not even thanks, he said! That's when I became sensitive and sceptical!

In this time the contact was very small. It all happened around Christmas time, he wanted to go home to his children. I should send him another 1.000,-€ for a flight ticket. I wanted to see his passport, he was angry because I wouldn't trust him. IP check revealed America, Sunnyvale and nothing with Switzerland or Turkey, time difference 9 hours.

I can recommend image search via yandex, and there I found many websites of him on Love pages with always different names and ages. He only looked at older women, he pretended to be 52 years old. What a ruthless freak! Sent a lot of pictures of himself and his kids.

He's only had women in xing as contacts. And now he's active again on the left, with the same photo and name! He's not real!!!!!! He was also on xing again and again after breaks, I reported him again and again.

Everyone run away very quickly! They're not worth the time of your life! good luck... men you've never seen should never get money! Never!

I met an oil rig scammer through words with friends. He wanted me to set up a gmail account. I never did. Talked to him for a couple days thru the game. Got suspicious when he started signing things love Thomas and calling me dear. I called him on his lies and he kept with the lies.

He worked for Diamond oil and gas instead of diamond offshore drilling. Claimed he was going to be on a rig for five months, when the norm is 14 or 21 days. His child moved from studying in the states to boarding in the UK. Mother American,
Father Danish. Mother died young. Then mother died recently.

English was more broken if you got him frustrated. Never set up the gmail account. Never told him where I was other than a state. All in all lucky I only wasted two days.

Yes I have been contacted by Emmanuel Stephen. He has given me the story that he was on an oil rig and that I was the love of his life and that he wanted to come to me and be with me forever.

He had two kids Jerry and Jessica. His wife died of drug and heart complications. They were with a caregiver at the time. Both his parents died. His wife's parents were not in touch with the family.

He also shared pictures, which are probably not the sames one, but would be interesting to find out more.

Petroleum Engineer

I have been chatting on Instagram with a Perry Wilson who said he is a Petroleum Engineer working on a contract in Oslo, Norway. Mother is German, Father, American and they live in Berlin. He says he has a home (sent me pictures) in Los Angeles. English is pretty good, but some grammatical errors.

He said that is because he grew up in Germany. He's a very smooth talker "who just lives to talk to me on Instagram." We've chatted a couple of weeks. He hasn't asked for anything, as yet. I'm very skeptical but will chat for the time being. Never would I give him any money or anything.

I was with a James from the Gulf Of Mexico for almost two years. His machine was always breaking down. Needed a pulley, needed a nut that broke off, needed some kind of oil thing, he had to shut down cause it was leaking in the water. Sent me pictures that were suppose to be him welding under water a pipe but had gear on so could not tell it was him. Sent pictures of him in his office and standing by stones and water, and in some Village. He had no one else but me and I was the only one that could help him. He fell and got hurt and needed attention right away so I called the Company and asked them if it was true and they said they had no one by that name that most workers were from Foreign and told me do not send him no more money for he was lying to me.

Found out his mules were sending all the money to Nigeria and I did get one arrested. All the love poems I typed in search and they would come up. His Picture stand in a mall in the Winter was another man's picture also. The one he sent me a few months ago there was another man had the same office and identical with pictures and all. So a friend checked them out and they were photoshopped so its amazing what they will do to get your money.

Please DO NOT SEND HIM MONEY, and he went after my friend too for help to fix his machines. If he mentions a friend Steve or Mark it is for sure him. But he is in Nigeria trying to get money to buy crude oil to sell. These guys are rip-offs and a lowlife. Please do not give him your phone number for he can order whatever he wants in your name by using it. God Bless You and My Very Best To You

Stories by oil rig scammers
by: Anonymous

How do the oil rig scammers know the different parts of the rigs and the functions? They are not Engineers. My only scammer, John Robert who I've found with many other names, told me once he was reading a book about oil drilling in the oceans. I could not figure out why if he was already drilling for oil in the high seas. When asked, he danced around and never gave an answer but I was in love. I guess they have books to study like he said he was reading the bible. That's how they know about everything they ask for.

As soon as they say something is broken, or their child needs funds for school, or they don't have a banking account where they are, RUN AND BLOCK THEM. I didn't because I had no idea he was a scammer. I'd just lost my husband of 45 years and was still mourning him when I was contacted by John who I think picked my name from the Mayo Clinic followers. He contacted me on Facebook with a sob story about how depressed he was and of course I helped him.

When I ran out of money after almost 5 years of promises to repay me , he suddenly was gone but is still sending me a text periodically asking if I have the money so he can return to GA and access his bank. He made a mistake when I asked him where he was after I had not heard from him for a while. He said he was in GA! Then said he was still in Nova Scotia. He took me for my life savings and most of my retirement. A Total of over $500,000.

To Dave Eugene Scott Posting
by: Anonymous

Sorry to burst your bubble but guess what HE IS NOT REAL. Just because he hasn't YET asked you for money, doesn't mean he won't. He will ask you for something. He is already hinting that he has to make repairs in order to complete his mission and meet you.

He has several options. Either ask to "BORROW" money from you to repair the drill bits (which by the way do not exist). Or, he will ask for an ITunes Gift Card for software, or he will tell you he has a package to send you and you will need to make the arrangements and pay a fee to the delivery company so you can receive a non-existent package. And it goes on and on.

He may also ask you to be his beneficiary! That is a good one.

Oh yes, my scammer LOVED me too. He was on an oil rig. Took him two months before he asked for money. He was so sweet and loving and loved sexting. He called me his queen, his love, his baby. I was everything to him.

The BS goes on and on.

My scammer was also 56 and his wife died in GHASTLY car accident.

Any of this sound familiar???? Read ALL the stories.

He is NO different. He is a lying piece of crap Nigerian scammer looking for nothing but money.

Please wake up before you become completely hypnotized by his BS.

Your creep is NO different than the rest.

Good luck if you still believe him.

RE: Stop and think about it...
by: Anonymous

Okay, I have to say this: I work in the oil and gas profession. I work with both onshore and offshore clients. Let's talk about some "truths" that should clue us all in to these scammers.

YES, the oil and gas profession is full of contractors. That's about the only semi-logical/realistic thing that I read on these posts related to my profession.

Here are the big NO's:

*Oil rig contractors do NOT get stuck paying for equipment parts and supplies. Does not matter if there is a storm, their wallets went overboard, there was an accident and/or they have crews depending on them. That's not how the oil and gas contracts work.
*Think about this: why would a reputable businessman ask a woman he met online (and has never met) to loan him money on a work contract???? That does not even make sense.
*If there was an accident and/or bad weather, we could google it and read about it in the news to verify. Accidents and bad weather get reported.
*They have no cellphone connectivity while they are out on their offshore work assignments. They would not/could not contact us if there was truly an issue.

If somebody gives us these ridiculous stories, we just need to block, delete, and RUN!!! I work hard for my money...why would we want to give it away to a phony-baloney story that doesn't even make sense? I will never be THAT lonely, will you? Think about what is being said to you related to their financial requests for so-called "contract work".

Hello. I am wondering if anyone knows Dave Eugene Scott. He is an oil rig engineer who is in the gulf of mexico with a contract through Chevron. His rig had a storm go through and damaged the drill bits and clusters. He needs money to get home as he lost his wallet in the storm. He hasn't asked me for any money at all and is actually been very good about that. He says he loves me and wants to get married when he is done with his contract which should be end of October, providing he can get the drilling up and going again.

Dave is 56 and has no family as he was orphaned and raised by a catholic priest. He has a 15 year old son Robert who is in boarding school. Dave's email is crudeoilengr10@gmail.com and his son Roberts' email is roberteugene@gmail.com

Supposedly they both live in Salt Lake city, but Dave is originally from Finland he says. He lost his wife Joan in a car accident 6 years ago. Dave is a real talker and seems so geniune. I hate to think that he isn't real as he wants me to come visit him (he'll pay for my flight), and then we go see his son Robert too.

More Names
by: Sarah

I believe that my original NIGERIAN SCAMMER that went by the name of Chris Anderson contacted me under two other identities.

He is on WWF and Messenger and Hangouts and probably anywhere else that he can troll. His WWF and Hangouts and Instagram ID is chris754anderson and I believe his email is chris45anderson@gmail.com which is probably his Hangouts address.

I was challenged on WWF by one David Silas (AKA silasdesmond) a few weeks ago when I downloaded WWF2 with the SAME M/O as Chris used. Same phrases, likes, dislikes, etc. I suspected right away it was him but played along for a little while.

Chris Anderson found me on WWF about a year ago. We stopped playing and communicating after I would not send him any money or Itunes gift cards. WWF ended a long time ago as did Messenger with him.

Well, guess what. After I started "playing" with David Silas I get a WWF challenge from none other than Chris Anderson (same photo he used to use but not the same as David Silas character). Said he found me playing a mutual friend David and wanted to know why I had blocked him. He asked me to give him another chance, that he loved and missed me and to unblock him and let's chat on HAngouts or Messenger. So I did. Then David disappeared and when I sent him another game challenge he declined!!

Chris and I communicated for another week or two and then he asked me for HELP!! LOL. I refused. He stopped playing WWF with me. I sent him another challenge and he declined!! Of course, I HAD NO INTENTION of sending him anything as before and knew EXACTLY what he is.

Third guy was chatting with a friend of mine on Instagram. His name is Patrick Owens. IG name is owenspasddy. Funny to me, but I was convinced it was Chris/David. So, my girlfriend called me on her land line and put the phone down where I could hear. She called him on Hangouts from her cell, put him on speaker and guess what....YES....it was Chris.

I had spoken with him on Messenger when we just reconnected and had spoken with him several times in the past. Unless these Nigerians ALL have the same inflections and voices, I knew that voice and his phrases, and everything.

So I set up a fake Instagram and guess who contacts me - Patrick Owens! He did not recognize the picture I used as it was from a long time ago and was a profile shot from a distance. My hair was different and so was I.

Yes, same everything as it was Chris. I chatted with him a few times and then I deleted my fake Instagram account. My friend, yes, she is still playing with him! Why, I will never know. She claims to be waiting for him to ask her for money. Then she will tell him off. She is talking with three others besides Patrick. Says it is for entertainment purposes.

I know you are all probably thinking that it cannot be the same guy. But I say, yes it is. They change their identities constantly and use them all.

The Chris Anderson character is done with me for sure. No more WWF or Messenger or Hangouts. Gone for good thank GOODNESS. But the Patrick Character did not recognize me or the name I made up.

So ladies, watch out for those three names.

And there are hundreds of them on WWF2. Get at least three requests a day. All disgusting freaks that they are.

I block them all.

Be safe out there. Don't ask us on here if we think they are scammers. Don't be fooled. If you have to ask, then you have doubts. When in doubt, RUN.

Oh by the way, Patrick told my friend he was working in Mexico on an Ocean Liner. He told me he was a Civil Engineer building a 5 star hotel at a resort location in Mexico.

New professions every day!!

Hi. Do any of you have any contact with a man called James. He works on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Lonely. He has no family. Very affectionate and romantic. He quickly says he fell in love. He needs money to repair the machine that broke down. There was an accident recently and he was in the hospital. That's why he did not answer. Contact at specific times. He says he is a Jehovah's witness but then he suddenly becomes a Pentecost. Does anyone write with such a person?

Block and avoid this guy, similar story, very big oil rig repair project, lovely texts/emails for more than month. Now, he is suddenly stuck with his project as he needs to pay thousands in import duties for the equipment he needs to install, obviously, he is about 17K short, good luck with that. He sent me a picture of a 408K payment he received from Chevron, but he can't use until he is off that rig.

I was suspecting something from the very beginning, but with his sweet talk, I had doubts and kept talking to him. I have not and will not send him anything, but wanted to warn others. The name will probably change, but he is sending you nice family pictures and his picture with his little dog. Wife is killed in a car accident, parents are dead and one adult daughter in UK.

I am sure he is false, but he keeps sending me pictures when he was little, of himself and his army buddies. The younger pictures are him. All are USA background, all are him because it looks exactly like him. I look like me when I was little, so does his. I tried tracing the images, but nothing either.

Im the one posting on 5 July2018 and Im so sorry hearing about your loss.

So the end of my story is as following -

His ghetto machine only managed to survive another week and then broke down. Of course then he needed 200k to get it repaired. I questioned him whether he got an insurance or not? He said no. How can people undertake such a valuable project without placing insurance? Because he is trying to steal your money, as simple as it is!

I was very firm on my position of not wiring money out by suggesting to him to get a loan from the bank, calling ex company/colleagues for money, etc. and he "managed" to raise 180k after 2 days (wow) which means he still needs 20k from me.

Luckily I was talking to my family the other day when he was trying to call me - I then made up a story that I lent all my money to the family. I have nothing left for him.

Then the following day again he called, asking me to go out and get an itune card for USD500 value because he has some software that he needed to pay off. I said I'll let him know once I found it, which I never did.

As a result he completely faded out without reaching out to me again.

I too was scammed and thankfully my sister did a reverse face recognition and confirmed it before I lost a lot of money. I had some suspicions due to loopholes in his story and differences in pictures that were sent to me. This scammer was really into "sexting" and when he sent me pictures of what was supposedly his private part, one day it was circumcised and another day it was not LOL!!!

So after I found out I was being scammed I decided to play along with the charade. Originally he wanted iTunes cards to "add more time on his phone". Then I sent money to a mule. The next time he wanted money I was to send it via money gram to a name in Nigeria. Well no way was I sending there as I had read about women almost getting charged with money laundering.

Told him money gram had new policies for sending to Nigeria.

Then I did a little scamming of my own. I told him my dog got away and when I went to grab him I got bitten by a snake and landed in the hospital and had all kinds of complications. While in the hospital he got updates from my "husband" and nurses. That went on for a week. So then he comes up with this brilliant idea that I can send the money via RIA transfer directly to his bank account. BINGO I now have a bank, account number and name on the account and I filed a report on the FBI’s website cyber crime page. The address is:

www.ic3.gov.

Make sure if you sent money you have how you sent it and who to.

The mule I reported knew she was sending to Nigeria that's why she got sentenced as such for she knew she was laundering money for this man.

So Thank You again, I was not the only one that went to the police but had an ID from WU and Money Gram to give them.

Months of texting, true love, matching souls, be together for ever. I sent money to him because his oil rig broke down in Turkey and he needed parts to get it fixed and now more money because his vessel got seized by customs because of wrong paperwork, now awaiting trial in Hong Kong.

This is where lonely gets you. I also fell for this hook line and sinker. Lost a lot of cash. I thought I knew better, but they are really slick. I am sick to my stomach over what I sent him for his crew !!!

Just to let you know these mules or aka agents are just regular people that these scammers are using. I belive you are being scammed like the police in my town told me. If you have to ask the question if the scammer is not scamming you then wake up as he is scamming you.

Mules/Erikefe Response to Question
by: Anonymous

Regarding why I played him long enough to get his agent information is complicated. It is a very long story. Myself and several others were interested in seeing if we were in communication with the same low life creature and if he was using the same mule. After many attempts to obtain funds from me, I finally agreed. Of course, never intending to give him a dime. He sent the contact info. Now he is gone!!! And good riddance to that piece of garbage.

So tell us how you are being scammed big time.

We are all here to help each other.

Oil rig scammers
by: Anonymous

I was just scammed by Jeffery Harris who claimed to be an army veteran and drilling engineer for chevron. He had photos and videos to back up his stories, even sent me selfies each day. After 2 months of steady texting, he was contracted to work on an oil rig for 2 weeks, after which he would fly to be with me forever.

Of course there was an emergency on the rig for which I should send money. When I refused, the very loving relationship abruptly ended. Don't be fooled by the photos and videos. These scammers are pros and know what they are doing. Don't be fooled.

Nigerian Scammers
by: Anonymous

First off I just want to say On Dr. Phil who talked to the police in Nigeria as my lawyer did, they were told it is not illegal for them to scam over there. The yahoo boys are getting arrested for many reasons. It was said by the police over there it is our own fault for falling for this from their people. It's sad and we are broken hearted to be scammed as we were.

But when I go on Yahoo Boys and see the tables filled with money, or someone sends me a request I always look at the likes even though the man is white and all his likes are from people of Nigeria or Ghana. Not that it matters if he is white or black or what for I do have all races of people on my page.

But remember to look at all his likes. You will find out more of where he is from. Yes my scammer and I too wrote marriage vows now he has written to me and said I will regret not giving him more money. I said come on, my lawyer and the cops are waiting for you to show up. For yes my neighbor is a police officer and he knows all about it. Have not heard from him again so far Thank God.

Please be careful on Facebook or whatever site you are on.

God Bless

In response to the questions about my scammer, the remaining $5,000 went back to him in smaller amounts.

I am so glad I know better now, and I'm still reluctant to point the finger at some victims as remember, they have been affected psychologically by these demons.

Sometimes, very seldom now, I feel a very odd compulsion to remember him, the plans we made, the vows we wrote, the intimacy we shared but its getting better.

I am able to erase all that when I think of the bad, evil things he did to me and many others

Scammers names
by: Anonymous

My scammers name is Jeff Blake on Twitter known as @jeffblak01 & He too said his name is Olawgewa Lasisi a Nigerian male and also went by @KennethDuncan44

I am have having a hard time with my memory of these thing as sadness rules over my life. I am alone facing this. I pray for true love some day.
It seems he is stll echoing in my mind every day with the messages and the way I felt with him. He is gone and left me to face all these losses and try to make sense of it but there is no sense. He was and is a scammer and I am a victim taking the hit of an oil rig engineer romance scam and trying to move on in time as I need time for my mind to heal.

I tell my eyes not to weep. I guess I need to move on but where does a broken heart go. I need to find where broken heart villa is and try to smile more someday. I learnt a big lesson and hopefully never again have to face the pain like this again.

Thank you

Mules By Anonymous - Erikefe Badare
by: Anonymous

This is in response to the posting of July 31, regarding the scammer that deposited $30,000 in your account.

So sorry that you became an unwitting mule. However, what happened to the $5,000 left after you returned the $25,000 for his so called emergency? Did he get that as well, plus more?

Are you even sure that the original $30,000 even came from him or from some woman that he also scammed with his promises of love and a future?

All I can say is that I hope you did not get in trouble with the FTC or any other federal agency.

They take money laundering seriously as it is a federal crime. Even though you did it unwittingly.

It makes me sick that these freaks get to women of all ages and walks of life.

I, too, was in contact with one, but never sent him a dime. After three attempts at getting money out of me, he disappeared.

Oh yes, he loved me so much, I was his honey, baby, "my love" and he also loved the phone sex and sexting. And those stupid poems and inspirationals.

I must admit, I played along with him, until he finally sent me the information on his "agent"!! Yes, another mule. Whether she was witting or unwitting, I will never know.

Hope she is not being investigated.

I lost my sister and respect of my oldest son. I was naive. I'm in debt, and still cry almost everynight. I was approached online by someone who wanted my number. After 2 days I gave him my 3rd email. I wanted to check his IP address.

To get in my life now, you have to prove to me you are not a scammer. I put men through hell now. I trust no one. I wish there was a number we could all talk, change information. Everyone could Skype?? I say because, no one can understand how we feel right now but each other. Sometimes words are not enough. I'm sorry this happened to us, men & women. We will make it. We will be stronger for it. It just takes time.

I think they pass your information on. 13 more since the first time. I don't listen to them anymore. Who wants a man or woman who asks a person for money sight unseen?

Just think every time you are talking to a 28 yr old Nigerian person.

These mules or so called agents are money laundering for these scammers whether they are men or women. There is one man from Louisiana that is facing over 23 money laundering charges for helping a Nigerian and do you think that Nigerian will face jail time - heck no but the man here in the US is. As far as I am concerned these agents could say sorry no thanks but no they don't and they lie to the law when they are questioned that is why it is very important to save every receipt for proof that you did send to them and the email from the scammer telling you to send money to them.

One of my so called agents I sent to was a Walmart employee before she became a mule.

Mules
by: Anonymous

To those who have posted about Mules, you need to know the following: My scammer is what is known as a Yoruba Demon from Nigeria. Look it up if you must as they use Voodoo, witchcraft, and hypnosis in their romance scams.

For 6 months, he was my entire existence and he wired $30,000 to a bank account I had opened. It was supposed to be for us when he returned to the US from his Oil Rig. Sound familiar yet?

I didn't question him when he had an emergency and needed $25,000 back for equipment. So there you have it, I was unintentionally a Mule.

I only came to my senses when he told me to send him my mortgage payment! It was like awakening from a 6 month long dream, or nightmare.

Since then, I have found 11 other women. Most of them have been robbed of their life savings, and do not want to come forward as they were used as Mules, too!

He was having sex with me online, and over the phone, and I found all the endearing phrases I thought were just between us: he was Junior, I was Kitty. He called me his darling wife, adorable wife, said if he couldnt have me, he didnt want anyone else. I found out he was saying the same things to lots of other women, and one, the poor lady, was 83!

I also woke up in the middle of a transaction thru Moneygram. I was on the receiving end of $400! I was horrified and cancelled the transaction, and contacted this woman as she was 83 yrs old, lived in Georgia, and had no idea why she was involved in this.

So, please dont judge people who appear to be Mules too harshly as some of us are doing it without our knowledge, or under duress as our lives are being threatened!!

His name is Rodney Carl and Joseph G Bassell on FaceBook, Rodney Alexander Carl on LinkedIN, Carl Rodney and TerryMorgan25 on Instagram, and Rodney, Joseph, Bassel G, Evans and Leslie on Badoo.

One of his phone numbers is 407-906-7406, and email is carlrodney201@yandex.com.

His Nigerian name is Erikefe Badare.

Scammers are closer than you think!
by: Anonymous

Hi! Not posted for a while as the foreign scammers seem to be leaving me alone, however, I have just been taken in hook, line and sinker by someone who is meant to be a friend. So, he knew I was in the early stages of separating from my husband and exploited the fact that we’d always had an attraction to get close.

Stupidly, I really thought he meant it when he told me how much he cared, that he missed me on the days following meet ups and finally that he loved me.

To cut a long story short, things were going great and we planned a weekend away (that I paid for to the tune of £250) and then he asked to borrow " a bit" of cash and like an idiot I obliged because this person i’ve Had in my life for 10 years meant something to me and now had a special place in my heart.

Then guess what? The calls stopped. Went from 70+ messages per day to zero and am now ignored on all fronts.

Wow.

Really hope karma comes along and kicks his ass because I feel like s..t!

My 81 year old mother is yet again being scammed. This one is oil rigger Brendan Douglas who says he's on the Ireland Sea and "just" needs about 4K to get some box sent to the states to her with his important papers etc and he'll pay her right back.

I KNOW he's a scammer and that she's mentally ill, but just wondering if anyone else has been played by this guy so I can show her in black and white that he's a scammer.

This is a never ending cycle for her. Sigh.

First off they do change their names all the time, and we never really know who we are talking to. As for Know it all, did I touch a nerve on you or something that set you off? I was not trying to set you off about it, I was just trying to let you know they always change their names with each one most of the time but sometimes use the same picture which they know most of us do not know each other.

SO KNOW IT ALL, NO, you have no idea who I am and I had no idea you would get so angry. My scammer had many names and I am so Thankful I found this out and he is on here under Tom Erol too.

I am very thankful for this site [ED: thank you].

Take care and God Bless You

Wow I really fell hard
by: Anonymous

I met Simon Harrison on Words With Friends 2. I have been playing that game for over 10 yrs. This is a first for me, and I kept seeing a text across the top of my screen saying 'hey pretty'. I ignored it for a while because I thought it was a woman. Well I realized it wasn't so I hit accept and played.

What a sweet talker he was, his profile said Iceland and I thought wow well we talked for weeks. He was a widow and had a son. He had bid on a big job in the Gulf of Mexico, and he got the job and I was his lucky charm. He sent me lots of pics of him, his son, their dog [a golden retriever and a mom named Rose. He was coming to the USA and all was good until an oil leakage needed $1000 or $500 would help to test oil to see if they could keep drilling, and stupid me, he even proposed.

Then more happens as a Blow out Protector was ruined and $30,000 needed now. My family was beside themselves with what I was doing, but I finally woke up, told him where to go and I was going to report him. He says he is 55yrs old, and a 14yr old son Kelvin. I am 70yrs young and this is so sad.

He is on WWF2 so run, don;t play. Delete him now. Oh he says he was working for BP America, and I found out that no he does not, and there is no one by that name in Iceland.

Mcl&H Pipeline Engineer - Larry Bendt/Larsen Bendt
by: Anonymous

Very sad to say that I believe after 3.5 months of talking to this man Larry Bendt, I found that there were inconsistencies in what he was telling me and what information he provided. I had a feeling in the beginning that something was off but of course wanted to play it out. No money was ever asked for except that he wanted me to "prepare" a purchase order for valves at a company in china.

I said no and told him that I had no money for him to execute something like that. He kept insisting that no money was needed to prepare a purchase order. He claimed he was having issues with the internet in Prudhoe Bay.

Last night, I checked www.mcl&hengineer.com and low and behold after 3 months of one picture of him as president, there is now a different picture with a different but similar name of Larsen Bendt. Actually, Larsen is a bit more attractive (LOL)

We met on ourtime.com. If anyone comes across him or knows of this man, please contact me at schnance@att.net, but first, please run away.

Mine was under James Wilson working for Shell. In my search I found the same picture on Linkedin under James Scott. That was three years ago. Big scammer or group with stolen pics of good looking man, I know who that man is.

Worked at the sea and always asking for tons of money. In 13 month manipulating me I lost almost everything to him. He was Nigerian for sure. They keep scamming because we fall for them. Easy job for them. Don’t trust and like most of us who were scammed we say block and run while you can. Too late for me but if you have not lost anything that is the only option.

They are good in what they are doing and if you did not have an idea about the scam you have to believe us who paid the price for trusting them.
