Oil Rig engineer for dating scam

by Anonymous
(USA)

Well he won my heart and prayed for my sick children, and cleaned out my financial life. Suppose to be such a Godly Good Man but, still needs money to get off the rig, etc, etc, but, I'm broke and that wont change.

Very good at what he does, very romantic, handsome picture, two children, from Denmark, really uses the spiritual on my life.

I Have always been very logical minded and hard working but he caught me where I was low and hurting and alone and he won.

Ladies, please take it from me. If they need money then they don't love you and they sure aren't going to be here for you even though they swear they will to help you through your difficult life and pay it all back.

God Bless All Of You. Send No Money.

Professing their love after a few days.
by: Anonymous

This is one of the biggest red flags. If someone starts this up be aware right away. They are trying to set you up with how you are an angel that God dropped in their laps. How you were meant to be with them from the beginning etcetera etcetera

Finally got him to call me on hangouts and wouldn't you know it I was hearing a very heavy African accent but he's still trying to convince me he is white American lol and before that he sent me a video of him supposedly singing but he made the mistake of not checking if the guy had spoken, which he had, and wouldn't you know it an American accent, been humorous to say the least

So this guy 45 years old is working as a contractor on a Rig in Italy. But is from NJ, has 2 kids, a boy Carl 2 years old and daughter Helen 5 years old. His wife died in an accident and his kids are being brought up by his mother. He is very charming, not asking for anything yet, buy red flags up as all the things he is saying about his family. He has been confessing his undying love for me after 4 days.

Has anyone else heard from him.

Wilson Chan A dating Scam
by: Anonymous

I will never accept anybody I don't know from Facebook. I wrote so much about how much he loves me. I suspected in the beginning when he sent me an email about his investment. etc. Then one week later, he said that he had an accident.

Never trust anyone from the internet. He also said that he is a top rig engineer working for Eni Spa oil. I checked many things. And yet I got spam from him over $130,000. That will do. My wake up call. He even asked me to talk to his daughter. Everything is made-up.
I am so stupid.

Alias as "Stefan Fountain" Spanish accent
by: Anonymous

This is further info from my earlier post titled Spanish speaking.

True to all the patterns posted below and on many other sites making us all aware of the patterns of these scammers.

This one, now has resorted to shaming, saying I was insensitive to his poor son's needs ~who by the way~ must still be "out in the cold" in England somewhere but when I asked him about the whereabouts of the said son, no response. "Stefan" attempted to bully me by becoming angry, degrade my character and still pleading for any kind of money to be sent on behalf of saving his son from being on the street.

He said that no helicopters were flying to relieve contractors of their duties on the oil rigs, due to COVID-19, which might possibly be true although I haven't been able to find much info on that online one way or the other.

I have to say I've been amused by his behavior. I was certainly well prepared by spending some time reading all the facts about how scammers play up to women and men's needs to feel loved and then hit them up for money because of some sort of an emergency. Then when not getting the money they so "desperately need", they become petty, angry, bullying or what ever they feel they can utilize to turn us into submissive souls that hope to salvage whatever pipe dream the scammer had devised. Most likely well rehearsed from doing it time and time again.

The facts are that through the internet we all are more aware and can easily deflect these people.

I actually reached out to him a few days ago and said, "OK, I get it, you're a scammer. Is this how you make your money solely? Where do you actually live, how long have you been doing this?" and said that I was primarily interested in getting into the head of a human being that operated from this format.

I detached myself and was really interested in delving into how the human mind and spirit works according to a scammer's point of view.

He then tried to soften me, sent me sad photos, gave me a story line that was possibly believable, but not. I turned the tables on him, responded with helpful options to resolve his plight but he spun out of control because he wasn't getting his way with me.

I told him that my nature was to always look for the good in everyone and I've done that with him. This kind of dialog was not on his accustomed radar so he deflected and got angry.

So, in summation, Ladies and Gentlemen, being able to support each other through a site like this that allows us to share our stories and help one another become more aware of the strange and disheartening differences in our core beliefs, kindness and desire to love and be loved is a great support system.

Thank you to the people that keep this site going, to the ones who take the time to broadcast the likelihood that one of us will be approached by a scammer in any format aside from romance.

Have strength, courage and love yourself first and foremost and never allow anyone to talk you out of your hard earned money for any reason no matter the accent, the story line, how quickly they start to profess their undying love and call you "baby".

Cheers.

ED: thank you for your kind words regarding the site

Supposed saying thank you for alerting them. No need to say thanks at least in my opinion. I'm just glad you didn't lose any money like I did. At least I'm hoping you didn't. I wish I would have found this site earlier on also.

I'm disabled and living by myself and really got taken advantage of. All I can do is pray for these people that someday they will meet Jesus before it's too late and they end up passing away into a dark eternity.

God bless you.

Has all the red flags. Wants to retire and buy you a house. The same thing the scammer told me. If he has a 16 year old daughter that means he was 50 when the daughter was born. Say his wife is in her forties even at that time. That's pretty much the average at that age. Women are at a very low percentage of having children in their forties.

Ask him what the age difference was between him and his wife. Don't say anything else. Just ask. He could even be reading this post and give you an answer that makes sense but a number of these things are ALREADY throwing up red flags!

Sisters, please don’t send anything to these scammers! They mostly have the same sad stories like parents died when they very young, wife died with miscarriage, invested all their wealth in the rig project, all of a sudden an accident happens, they need your financial support to get out of the rig, otherwise they will loose everything and they will be in jail or they will die.

They email you every morning when you wake up, the so called "wake up email ", they chat with you with the sweetest words you can ever hear, and also attach Very emotional love songs to get your love and trust so please please be alert, as it’s too good to be true!

Red flag 🚩 as soon as you said no, they start to blame you and become nasty!

He is a BIG LIAR. First, there are probably NO documents. It is a ruse to get you to send money. Sometimes they will tell you it is jewelry, or gold, or money in a chest.

Ladies, WHY do you waste your time with these losers??? They are not real. They are using stolen photos and know how to manipulate.

I have read so many stories here and it makes my head hurt to see how many women have sent these freaks money.

As someone said, RESEARCH.

They are using every site possible to get vulnerable women looking for love, companionship, friendship, to send them money.

95% of them are young Nigerian men.

They do nothing all day and night but spend time on their Iphones, or computers, bought by lonely women, to contact as many women as they can until BINGO they hit a live one. That keeps them afloat for a long time.

Trust me, I know one. He spends most of his days hanging out in a park with his loser friends. They do not even look for work. He calls and texts at least 50 women a day from various dating sites and Facebook and Words with Friends, etc. using several different photos and fake names.

And in case you might wonder, NO I never sent him a penny.

I wish more women would find this site before they fall prey to these worthless, soulless, heartless subhumans.

STAY SAFE, avoid these creatures like you would avoid COVID 19.

A few days ago on Instagram Jason Mildaer friend requested to follow me. Says from CA but lives in Plymouth UK with his 12yr old son. He sent me a pic that I did a reverse pic look up on Google and there is nothing on any of the pics. He hasnt asked for any money.

I told him in the beginning he wasnt getting anything from me. And he said that was ok he wasnt asking for anything. Hes not constantly messaging me but when we do talk it's about real life stuff. Nothing sexual. Nothing out of ordinary.

But today he said he was going to be heading back to work. And I remember he told me he just started getting into investing but he was a marine engineer as well. When I asked what job he said I got the call that I'll be heading back into the rig, and said remember I'm a marine engineer.

Anyone get scammed by this guy? He hasnt tried calling. We just message off an on on google hangouts.

I never sent money or iTunes cards. I asked why didn’t you just tell me the truth, and he said he came from a mix family. I said I’ve mix in my family and it doesn’t matter to me. All I ask is too be honest and truthful.

Oil rig mechanical engineer with Spanish accent
by: Anonymous

He found me on an old dating site called Western Match. Said all the right things in his profile, I saw flags in his spelling and responded to his note that I thought he was a scammer. He quickly wrote back that he was Portuguese/American with Iberian mother so that's why his accent was "funny".

Then shared a letter with parents being killed in a car accident while he slept in the back of the car in Portugal then said a mean Uncle raised him. He said that he couldn't go on to explain anymore as he was in tears and it was too much.

FLAG

He acted insulted that I called him a scammer, I recanted and thought I'd see where it would go. Not trusting him at all. He built the whole case on the fact that COVID-19 was making it hard for him to get off the rig out in the ocean.

It didn't take him long to notice my cell number at the end of my email ~ he called. Phone location said Louisiana as posted where he lived. Working as an engineer on a oil rig. Said he was a specialist, working underwater occasionally.
I'm pretty mechanically inclined so started asking technical questions. He held up his side of the conversation pretty well. I began to believe him to some degree.

The first week he started saying he was my dream come true, he loved me and wanted to be with me the rest of my life. OK sounds good coming from the right guy but this again was suspicious.

He had a good line about re-purposing equipment that I asked him about and said we could develop a business buying and selling units for the gas/oil industry once he retired.

It was all beginning to sound more credible.

His pattern was to call, tell me he loved me then shortly after he got sexual. I was uncomfortable. and he wanted my interaction and was going towards photos. I balked big time

Last night, he only texted and after a long "radio silence" he finally called and said he was distressed because his son in England was thrown out of his house due to non payment of rent. The story was more expanded but I am a retired Realtor and offered logical suggestions. He began to be insulted. He said he needed me to help.

I baited him and asked how much? $1400.00 sent to a woman in Michigan who was married to a black man in England that had the rental.

BIG FLAGS!!! He insisted he was crying so much he couldn't talk anymore and hung up.

I did a search on oil rig scammers and couldn't believe what turned up. I texted him he was among a great deal of lowlife people and he was found out.

Wow! this was getting interesting. LOl I gave him more logic how to deal with his son's plight "sitting in a restaurant crying". Oh and he had a heart condition and he immediately reduced his request to half! "just anything" "if it was your son you'd do anything and if I can't help him I'll just jump off the rig here and die"

The last text was one attempt to make me feel guilty with a conclusion of "I never regretted meeting you. Happiness I pray for you as each tear drop from your eyes"

I'm not crying here. I hate it that there are people out there like that. Craigslist is ruined due to these guys, Ranch World Ads is suspicious, Face Book of course with Friend requests.

I'm a professional horse trainer, retired real estate broker, lead an adventurous lifestyle and in super good shape. I'm pretty savvy and want to share this to help others.

I think I am in the middle of a scam
by: Anonymous

Does anyone know Kelvin Miller? He says he's on an oil rig just off Jeddah. Says he's widowed, no children and is half English half American. I met him on a dating site. He deleted his profile almost immediately after we started talking.

To cut a long story short, I sent him money after speaking to his aunt in the states. But he now needs more and is trying to get me to take out a loan. I used to pride myself on being quite savvy...but it is only just dawning on me that this is a scam.

He's sent me pictures of himself and even a screen shot of his passport as I had doubts he was real. But the passport and conversations with his aunt tipped the balance so I sent the money.

I've been a fool haven't I?

Alexander Lucas' story raises a lot of red flags, including the part about the guy, whose IG pic he stole, being an impostor. You didn't send him any money, right? When they ask for money, it raises red flags, too.

He sounds like someone who also stole a man's pics in late November 2018, only he didn't claim the guy in the pic was an impostor. It was when I used Google to find out whose pic he used, that I mentioned that someone looked like him and has the same hobbies as he did.

He claims to be an oil rig engineer. Widow, wife died after having his son and son died and left him a granddaughter named Lisa. Very loving and sweetness overload and got me head over heels with all my hard earned money. Wasted my time for 34 months. He said he works for zenith oil and gas company in Gulf of Mexico. He will beg and cry for money, iTunes and will ask for your bank account, ask you to open a new new bank acct or ask you to open his bank account in the UK.

He will let you log in to earn your trust. It’s a fake account. He will ask for iPhones, more money and money to send to Africa to his so called agents. He asked for money for machinery fixtures. He loves to sing to you. ALL OF ME LOVES ALL OF YOU. Fond of calling you honey. Has a heavy lovable accent but speaks okay English

I just googled something on oil rigs, given I have been in touch with someone and he says he lives in West Hollywood, wife died of cancer 4 years ago, two children, and I have photos of him and the children. He said his wife was Mexican. She doesn't look Mexican to me at all. I have spoken to him just now and he sounds like another person who called me a few months ago.

This guy is saying his name is Kim Scott, is a contractor, originally from Sweden but living in the USA. Says he is working on a contract for Turkey.

The first guy I spoke to who sounds exactly the same is Dr Davisdon Irving, he claims to be a jewelry designer. Interesting this Davidson dude messaged me asking for money says because of the virus he was in lockdown. Could I help. NO is my answer of course. I was not born yesterday.

What is it with these guys. Both of them I asked to see on video and the same answer, my phone doesn't have a camera, then I spoke about Messenger, same answer, it was hacked.

Too many similarities I am afraid. I am going take a photo of this site and postings and send it to him.

Giovanni "Luca"
by: Anonymous

This person was charming and fun to talk to initially. Had same background story as the other person who first mentioned him on this site except this story didn't include any children. He approached me on a dating site.

Within the first 3 weeks, he sent low-quality images/videos of moving equipment. I tried to look up exif data on the files but they were non-existent. Exif data is graphic file information that tells you the exposure settings, phone/camera type, photo creation date, etc.

I think he figures most people he talks to, to be [not sure how else to put it] but dumb. He had a few holes in his story. To say the least, those conversational pink flags turned into a red flag when he sent a photo of himself with his "crew." It was a badly photoshopped file with his head swapped onto a body. My friends who are graphic designers and I had a laugh with how this was supposed to be passed off as realistic. For one, the color temperature was off and the lighting direction did not match that with the rest of the group.

A week goes by and I ask for another photo and it is another badly photoshopped file. More bad lighting with color temperature way off. As someone who does professional retouching, it was quite amusing seeing these files being sent to me. Again, couldn't find exif data to determine creation date or basic file info. Plus, the body type was totally different than the other photos sent.

Other red flags, moving too fast on that emotional timeline without having met first. And desperately trying to appeal to things that some people want--like starting a family, growing old with someone, or wanting intimacy in life. I'm just dating for fun ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Those long-term commitment fantasies don't appeal to me.

I engaged in conversation more to try to figure out his angle or to see if there's something worth reporting to the police. Didn't really come up with anything before I got bored and blocked him. He never asked for money or, I just didn't give him enough time to feel comfortable enough asking.

Perhaps, he may have come to that point soon, as he indicated he was "losing money" on his project. I wasn't very sympathetic in that respect and told him that's why he should have had proper insurance and bonding in place and it was stupid to take on a project without one. (Also, bids aren't awarded if these aren't already in place.)

Be careful out there. Trust your gut.

I wish I had found this site beforehand.

Be careful of a man named Patrick Ballard. Sweet words. He said all the right words. Son's name is Koady who has Pompe illness. He works on an oil rig. Wife/gf died giving birth. He has no friend. No parents. Grew up in a foster home in Ohio. Currently lives in Virginia.

He asks for help of $15k for his son's medical. Refused all other offers. He just wanted the cash. I didn't transfer.

Yea. The guy that scammed me really took advantage of my Christian faith. Asking for prayer for himself and "his crew". Sending scriptures back to me and such. He had VERY good command of the English language. Better than most that are American born! He also was very respectful and kind in his conversation. Very romantic Etc.

Watch out ladies. He's a snake in the grass. Said he worked for maersk and used the popular stolen profile of Thomas Madsen.

So I was approached on Fitbit. I’m in two walking groups with people I don’t know so I accepted without thinking. Well this chap is so obvious with his oil rig, speedboat helicopter launches.

I feel if I am talking to him and winding him up a little then that is one person less he is scamming.

I’m pretending to be all in rapture with his job etc. I wish I could upload the picture to see if it’s being used.

Take care

I have recently been contacted by a man using the name John Wilson. He claims he is a oil rig worker and has a daughter. He has the ability to do Video call on hang outs that are fake. He is telling some that his wife and second child during birth. Others he is telling that his wife or girlfriend cheated.

He has a fake online checking account set up. Be careful he is REALLY GOOD at scamming the innocent. From what I can also tell if you send him your photos he will use them to scam others. So yes he or she is pretending to be a girl or guy using the photos of his victims to scam others. They also speak the word of god in a very knowledgeable way.

Video Calls
by: Biggles777

Hello

"Do you understand what I'm trying to say??"

Yes I do. A legitimate real time video call of two or more real people talking can't be manipulated.

I left a link on how to manipulate a Hangouts video call. A real time video call can be manipulated if one person is using an edited video. If edited, both the image of the person and audio of them in the video has been heavily modified.

An edited video is not able to do what you asked about. That is, answer specific questions real time.

In the example video I linked many use that method to make a fake video call. The good ones get it right, the not so good all make the same mistake. They use Manycam. If not done the correct way, that word will appear in their fake video. So if you see it, something is wrong.

You also wrote;

"fake profile picture up there and have it talking to you in real time answering specific questions"

My interpretation of what you ask is different to yours. You used the word "picture", my definition of that isn't the same as yours.

To me a picture is a still image not a video.

If you use a very good DSLR with a high shutter speed. You are able to take a few hundred still pictures in less than 1 or 2 minutes. They can then be edited and audio overlayed to the point where a video can be made. It will not be a long one. It also takes a lot of time to do.

A good DSLR can also take a video but if you are going to fake it with a DSLR still images do the job better.

I said your original question was "loaded" you've touched on something I really enjoy doing. There is just so much involved in doing it that this is not the place for it.

A recent post by a lady here said here scammer confronted about her post on this site. That's another reason why I refrain from saying too much. I'd put money on them wondering what I am doing with a DSLR after they read this.

Malcolm Roberts ExxonMobil Oil Rig Engineer from WWF
by: Biggles777

Hello

I've posted about this Malcolm Roberts here a bit in response to a woman. The Editor has kindly given me 2 pages elsewhere here to post about it. I've had to heavily edit what I said.

Over 2 weeks I spoke with 3 different men, they changed as I baited them. It was actually very interesting for me and I posted a truncated exchange where the man talking to me clearly had no idea another one was too and taking over who scammed me. They lie, I do too, they believed me. If you read, you'll see how much I lied. I know of no oil rig worker who earns 30 million a month.

The 10,000 character limit helped me from posting too much.

Malcolm Roberts on WWF is a scam

Malcom Roberts on Hangouts is a scam

I met this man on words with friends. He came onto me and insistently text me. He asked if we could be friends and I said yes. He gave me his email wilsonchris123000@gmail.com

I have been talking to the guy for 4 days so far, but he has not asked for money. However, he said that his wife died and he has a 12 year old girl, and he had a girlfriend who cheated on him with his best friend. I kind of believe him, but at the same time was having my doubts, so I started researching online.

I found this site and realize that he lied. A photo that he sent today is a photoshop. I found a good website and downloaded there and to my astonishment the man uses the picture of someone else and he put the face of this individual, who supposedly is him.

So, be careful out there who you talk to. These people do not care or have any regrets, or guilt and they are moving out there and preying on peoples emotions.

Words With Scammer Update 2 Malcolm Roberts
by: Biggles777

Hello. To the woman who asked about this earlier I responded and said to ask for an email from his ExxonMobil account. Here is a copy of how I asked a Malcolm Roberts, also Malcom. I'll post a page here with pictures, a link and a story of their greed. He wants iTunes cards for data. Oil rigs have satellite communications. He is already lying.

Him: How are you doing sweetie?

Him: Have you gotten the cards yet?

Me: Hello Yes I found 2 $500 iTunes cards

Him: Ok do you have them with you?

Me: Yes I do but I need to know I can trust you

Him: Yes you can sweetie

Me: I do not think so
Him: Why

Me: Your daughter, Phoebe, right?

Him: Yes

Me: Why did you lie to me? The picture of her you sent is of a 14 year old Russian actress called Kristina Pimenova and you are not her father. Please explain?

Him: Okay...I you know I can't lie you... Phoebe's Mom hid her from me for some years now..she kept a letter in her safe saying she took her to Canada to her relatives I've not seen my daughter for some years now..I thought if I told you you would get mad I'm so sorry and in tears now😢

Him: I have not seen her in years now according to her grandma she says Phoebe looks exactly like that little girl I sent to you

(Cry me a river!)

Me: Very well. Trust is very important, you could have just told me. You're on the rig with Exxon, right?

Him: Yes sweetie I'm so sorry I didn't tell you All these while

Me: Good. Exxon is ExxonMobil. Send me an email from your work email address and I'll send you the cards. I'm waiting.

Him: No sweetie it's not my own company I can't have thier email only the senior staffs does and besides I sneak to chat with you we're not allowed to use phone over here at work

Him: I hope you understand

Him: It's the company rules sweetie
I think my data is about to finish why not scratch the cards snap and send them so I can load them before my data runs out babe
Him: If you can give me a call I will explain better to you

Him: So we can talk on phone

Me: No. That is not true. You see, I called them today. Any employee of theirs on an oil rig is free to use their company emails for personal reasons. They also said their rigs are equipped with satellite communications. That mean you do not need data. I'll give you one last chance to use your Exxon email as per company policy. I'm waiting.

(What I said is not 100% verified by Exxon)

Him: Can I give you a call?

Me: I do not trust you. Your Exxon email. I am waiting.

Him: It's just a call

Him: Yes I will email you

Him: But let me give you a call first okay

Him: Last favour from you

Me: You email me from your Exxon account. No. You do this for me. You are a man who can't be trusted.

Him: I said I will email you

Him: Missed call from Malcolm
Him: 15 mins

Me: You do that I am waiting.

Him: Pick up

Him: I just called you

Him: Pick up I am. Calling you (I decline)

Him: We need to talk like adult

Him: Missed call from Malcolm

Him: 11 mins

Me: No. One thing is very clear. You are not on an oil rig owned or operated by ExxonMobil. One last chance to use your Exxon email or I walk away

Him: What’s the matter with you

Him: You have too much trust issue

Him: Trust issue only destroy relationships

Him: Pick up your call and talk to me

Me: You're the one who breached any trust we had. Your daughter and now this. Goodbye.

As you see he in a position where he is unable to email me from anything other than Hangouts. I very clearly called him out on two issues.

He is confused. All he can do is turn to excuses and a woman's emotions. He clearly tries to tell me I'm the one with trust issues when he is the one caught lying to me twice.

As I wrote this in comes the following;

ExxonMobil Operator

Hello ***** this is the company Email...I don't like coming on it but since you insist

As you can see it is Gmail. I know this is true. ExxonMobil do not use Gmail, their domain is @exxonmobil.com

I'm off to play him some more. All the best!

Re:Words with scammer
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Hi, there, I've never played Words With Friends, but that scammer you described just now sounds exactly like the one who still has a Twitter account: Oil rig engineer with two young kids and a wife who died of cancer (they never state what kind of cancer) some years ago, claims to live in Reykjavik, Iceland, when his cover photo has a picture of the New York skyline.

Does he call himself "Dennis", post pictures of a hallway in a swanky apartment or a house, and claim that he needs to pay to get off a rig to see his kids for Christmas? Does also he sound desperate when you won't do what he asks, by any chance?

One more thing: Does he post pics of a man you think looks like him? The pics raise red flags, too. I did my due diligence and found out that the picture the scammer used was that of a real estate agent, who's good looking and in his fifties; the real Dennis is married, father of twins, and doesn't need to scam women for money because he earns it. Also, there's no such company as S Global.

Report, block, and run.

Can't believe I fell for lies.
by: Anonymous

I'm usually good at spotting BS but I guess I let my radar down. I actually accepted a friend request from this Chinese guy named Albert chan. I didn't accept him right away not did I chat with him right away. When we first started chatting he started asking if I had Hangouts or Whatsapp. I told him neither. So I downloaded Whatsapp since I've used it in the past.

We started talking and omg it was like I met my prince. Very charming words. How could a women not fall for a man that is in the chic flicks movies. He stated he was 38 and birthday was March 1st. No kids and wife is deceased. Has no family. He stated he lives in Houston.

He told me he has been working on a 3 month project with Eni spa oil. He stated he was running the operation. He stated that he had to put his own money into this project and then he will get his payout once the job was completed. Stated that he does not have a phone since a previous incident occurred.

I have been skeptical from our chat until he sent me a video of the ship and a huge wave knocking down some of the crew. He later stated that it broke some machine and that he needed to come up with $30,000. He said that he was able to get $20,000 but was still short $10,000. He was sad that he was going to lose everything. Since he stated that the bank loaned him 4 million dollars because they held his house and car as collateral.
I told him how can I come up with that money and pleaded to help him in any way I can. He knows I don't have money but asked to see if I can do anything to help help. The last message he sent was a huge description of the company. I haven't heard from him since. It's day 2 with no contact. He stated he was close to Italy.

I came across here when I was searching the company and saw his profile pic on Google. The dates of article matched his time frame but saw one that doesn't. He also stated his project was coming to an end April 4

All the usual stuff - wife died in a gas explosion, separated from the current one for cheating. His English is poor. He provided lovely photos and his details for the company he works for. Christian God fearing man.

Said he loved me on day 3. Not asked for money but has lied about being able to get access to money because he works on a rig. He states his iPhone 11 camera is bad?? I asked for a voice recording and haven't got it, still I asked if he has Facebook and he said no he deactivated it but there is a photo of him still there so I sent a friend request to see what happens.

Hello,

"I am almost sure it is a scam.....how can I tell"

You are here, that means you are not certain, not sure.

You met him on a game not a dating site or app. On that game they are everywhere. It is just a game with a chat app, not a dating service.

I'm talking to one I met on it who also says he works for Exxon. M***** R******

What "gratuity" could ExxonMobil possibly be paying? None at all. He is not going to settle for your number, he'll want more personal data as it appears he is lining you up to be a mule or launder money for him.

Sounds like you are in the USA, buy a cheap burner cell and use that number to protect your privacy. Ask, why would they notify you by phone and not email or the post?

Test him. Ask that he send you an email from his work account. It will end as @exxonmobil.com if it is anything else or he makes excuses, he does not work for them.


NB: Thank you to the woman for the shout out!

Offshore oil rig scam
by: Biggles777

Hello

"Is there anyway I can report the account here in the US? Where is the best place to go to report this?"

Yes there is. Call the bank and ask to speak to the risk management group. Tell them the account has been used for fraud and most likely money laundering. If they take your call and the account details. When they know what the account is being used for they have to note that against the account. No matter the sum involved.

You can also report it to the FTA, FBI and most likely the Nigerian embassy in Washington. The embassy will want more like emails, names and anything else used by them against you.

For that, scroll deeper into this thread and a woman has posted on how to report to the Nigerian embassy.

Video Calls
by: Biggles777

Hello

"Can someone explain how REAL TIME video calls can be manipulated? Thx"

That is a loaded question. A real time video call can be altered to the point it is totally fake. Example, I can turn myself from a man to a woman. There are apps available that alter the image of the person you are talking too. This can be done on Hangouts, Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype, Instagram and other sites and apps.

It might be as simple as them moving their cam directly at another video they are playing. If they do this, they'll say their having technical problems. Sound will be poor to non existent too.

If you Google your question a little, you'll find a lot on it. Here is a shortened link to a YouTube video on how to make a fake video call on Hangouts, by an African.

I'm talking to a similar man. His story changes as it is all lies. Says he is a petroleum dealer.

If you are posting here, you have doubts. So, test him. If he works with copper he should know the price of it.

I don't know how you communicate with him but like all he is probably on Hangouts. To test him chat with him as though you have feelings for him, he'll like that as it is love, that is what they do best and take money.

So, talk love for 10 minutes or so. Then just throw in a curve ball. If he works with copper he'll straight away correct you.

Tell him this. "I see cu is at $4,350" that is all you need to say. cu is the benchmark symbol for copper, the second is last night's closing price changed by $300 or so.

If he shows no sign of knowing what you are talking about. He does not work with copper.

Here is a link shortened to get you the correct price: https://bit.ly/3buJhhu

Here is what I did with the petroleum dealer I am talking with;

Him: Okay

Him: Am I ng sleeping now

Him: I will text you tomorrow okay

Me: Ooh okay I'll leave you be. I see WTI is at $22

Him: Honey I don't get you

As you see, he was off guard and in went my curve ball. He had no idea what I was talking about. WTI is the benchmark price of oil, I changed it by $2 a barrel. So, 23 years a petroleum dealer in Houston and he doesn't know the price of oil. Really?

Good luck

This is the fake profile of the one that scammed me. It's the MOST used fake profile for scammers!! The real guy is gay and is married and knows his profiles been used by scammers. I even saw a promotional ad from a dating group called mature dating or such. I wish I could remember the name now. They actually used his photo as someone being legitimate on their dating site!! I posted that they need to do better searching because this one particular fake profile is very well known. These dating sites don't do any checking. Anytime I see this guy's picture on any dating site I always report it. I'm hoping I could help some others from being scammed.

Hello

I don't usually do this but I just gave up on the person I was talking to.

Image sent was of an innocent man, search it and it is on a scam page. Kelvin Mory says he is on an oil rig but not where. That would be because he is in Ghana.

Other name used was Jerry Walters email;

jerrywalters150@gmail.com

Now uses this email;

williammarkson7070@gmail.com

If your name is Kelvin Mory why would you use an email with that name?

His last words to me;

"If I can get you i we get you arrested"

Increasing facebook interest

I've noticed a sharp increase in people responding to my Facebook posts. People that are definitely scammers. As mentioned in a prior post they are probably targeting United States citizens because they are now aware of stimulus checks coming our way. Has anyone else noticed this in your Facebook accounts?

In response to another woman that said that guy she was talking to was supposedly working for maersk would you be willing to post some of his comments.

The one that scammed me said he was working for maersk also. I'd like to see if it looks like him. He is very sweet, respectful and had a fantastic grasp of the English language.

The Corona Virus
by: Anonymous

I am sure most of us on this site have been affected by the Corona Virus. I am in the US.

My scammer stopped sending me messages as once again, I refused to send him "assistance". He did reveal himself to be Nigerian to me a while ago.

I never blocked him on F/B Messenger because I never felt threatened by him.

The other day I received a message from him that we had a good government in America because out government was sending us all $1000. Can you believe that! He never asked how I was during this crisis, nor does he really care. I am sure his eyes lit up and his palms got sweaty when he thought I would get some money.

Well now that amount is $1200. Of course, it has not been voted on to finalize and it will still be weeks. But now he is keeping in touch with nice sentiments.

Anyone else that is in the US have that happen to them??

Stay safe out there.

Oil Rig Engineer Scam
by: Anonymous

His name is Carl Anthony. Claims to be working with Maersk Drilling, Copenhagen as an Engineer. Hails from Canada. Has a son, Alvin but has lost the wife to cancer. On final leg of his contract and would soon retire in July, 2020.

Very nice to chat with. Sent pictures of his son and himself with deceased wife. I chatted mainly with him about the word of God since he said he was an ophan, lonely and had only his son, no friends, just work colleagues.

He responded to all my messages with such love and care, asking that I take him as a brother when I told him I was married. Just as I was about to send him pictures of myself and family, which he requested, I noticed some inconsistency in his messages and suspected he was a scam and blocked him.

Today I noticed he was asking to be friends on Facebook but I ignored this. I never confronted him with the fact that he was a scam. I quietly blocked him. We had chatted as pen pals for a month. He hadn't asked for money, guess he was waiting for the right time.

Thank God, I escaped!

Hello. As we are dealing with criminals they have no moral compass. They are now using the COVID-19 pandemic to scam

They know love and money. Their stories are built on lies. Suddenly some are now in Spain and Italy. One, without any explanation went from an oil rig to Italy in a day. Really? That is not possible.

Another has become a ship designer and is sending photos of a cruise ship in isolation.

Fake Italian National Identity cards are being used. I will post one elsewhere on this site soon.

Met on WWF and had light pleasant conversation starting out with where are you playing from? His profile picture he’s playing the violin and I asked if he played professionally. He was respectful and polite and we had an immediate’ connection’.

I’m a recent widow and he said his wife had died 2 years ago and he was an only child himself and they had no children due to her medical condition. He’s an independent civil engineer who soon left for his final contract in Oslo, Norway. When he arrived he said he had forgotten to make arrangements for his Apple Music account and asked for $300 in Apple gift cards so he can listen to his gospel music which gives him much comfort.

I said that I was unable to send him money and he was angry and manipulative until I finally gave in. He professed his ‘love’ very early and called me ‘Queen of my Heart ‘. He said he is a wealthy man and wants to complete our bucket list together when he’s retired in a few months. He sounds very heartfelt and genuine and uses scripture and prayer in his scam.

He’s very good and very charming. His conversation was never inappropriate or off color. He was extremely sweet and said he values a woman’s heart over her appearance. Beauty will fade but a good heart will not. We chatted and even talked for hours a day.

He said he’s from Poland but has lived in the US for 30 years and is a citizen, but still has a strong accent. I found the pictures he sent me on a reverse lookup site and he claimed they were stolen from Facebook years ago and he has reported it to the FBI. Then I found a video of a man named Luca G who lives in Italy and says his pictures have been stolen and used by multiple scammers but he is happily married and not on line seeking relationships.

I was duped by him for 3 months and fell for more than one of his pleas for rescue from horrible circumstances.

Block him and run. You will loose your heart your mind and your money. He will have an answer for anything you bring up as a possible inconsistency.

Don’t argue just run.

Encountered him on Instagram. Seemed sincere. Loaded Hangouts and chatted for several weeks. Said he loved me quickly. Took me a bit longer. I got him some gift cards he said he needed. I wish I had found this site sooner because he checked all the boxes in the list.

Widower, raising son alone, Christian, engineer on an oil rig in the a gulf, jealous, wanted to sext, could not talk on the phone or take pictures. Sadly he got some money from me and some pictures.

Then when I would not give him more he threatened to blackmail me. I deleted my Facebook, Hangouts, Twitter and Instagram accounts. He contacted me on my gmail and I blocked him.

Something I've noticed
by: Biggles777

Hello. "I've noticed that a lot of these scammers are using two proper names ie. John Mark, James Thomas and such. I wonder why that is??"

Two reasons for that.

1: They steal the photos but not the name of the person whose photos they use.

2: Look a little closer, their names are usually two first names, or Christian names, making up the full name they are using.

By doing the second there is far less chance you will be able to find them or any of their online footprint, if they have one. They hide.

If you see names similar to those you mention chances are you are talking with a scammer. Take a look at this thread in more detail and what you raise is very common.

Hello. Well done on going with what you felt was wrong, you spared yourself emotionally and financially.

You've also done a great job in telling others about this person. I'd like to add a point.

"He wanted me to get him an Amazon gift card, It was for his son's birthday and he wanted to get him something special I guess he was trying to play on my emotions."

Yes, he is playing on your emotions but the main thing he is doing is testing you. Or as I would say "sounding you out" as to whether you'll pay.

A lot of them use this ruse to find out if they can scam you and its always a card for their kid. Well they all claim to have money or be on their last contract.

If that is the case, why can't they have their nanny do it or order one on online?

HenryLeo Steve oil rig engineer
by: Anonymous

I've been reading the comments from everyone and they are quite interesting. I started chatting with someone, HenryLeo Steve. He was nice and I enjoyed talking to him. He wanted me to download Hangouts and I told him I couldn't that my phone wouldn't let me. He was very persistent and told me to keep trying. So I figured why not and told him I did. We continued chatting and he told me he was divorced with a fourteen-year-old son and that he lived in California.

I had heard similar stories from other men that I talked to on word wars. I figured it couldn't hurt to talk to someone so I continued talking to him. Right away he said he had fallen in love with me which I told him was unusual since he didn't even know me but he said he could tell by our communication.

After about 2 weeks he asked if I could do him a favor. In my gut I knew he was going to ask for money but I just wanted to see where this was going. He wanted me to get him an Amazon gift card, It was for his son's birthday and he wanted to get him something special I guess he was trying to play on my emotions.

He told me he was an engineer and worked on an oil rig like so many of the other people that I have read about. I asked what caused them to get divorced. He told me they were married for 12 years and she was a drug addict and tried for years to help her and finally had to take care of himself and his son and what was best for them.

He finally gave me his phone number so he could text me and when I researched it it shows the numbers from North Carolina. I confronted him with this this evening and asked for an explanation. I still haven't heard a reply from someone who was constantly texting me.

Please share this with anyone you know he might be looking for love even though I wasn't. I made him aware that I was married and that we would only be friends. I wasn't scammed but there are so many who are vulnerable and I would hate for them to be scammed by these creeps.

Some tips to lookout for
by: Anonymous

This is a little dated, 2012, so some of the terminology is out of date but the concept is still the same.

More signs that you are being scammed

PostMon Oct 22, 2012 5:37 pm

1) they contact you, claiming to be from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Western Europe
2) their English sucks, though they claim to be the native English speakers and they say "am" instead of "I am"
3) they give you their email or Yahoo ID in the first 1-2 messages and want to get off-site and chat on messenger
4) they are widowers, their wives died in the horrible car or plane crashes, they raise "a kid" alone, or (if they are females) they are recovering from a bad relationship with a cheating ex.
5) they chat with you, send love letters (stolen from elsewhere and easily googled), sometimes send little gifts, purchased with stolen CC
6) they talk to you on the phone and sound African, but you think it's a sexy "Italian" accent.
7) women send you nude pictures, you can bet they are stolen from porn sites
8) often, they propose you marriage or promise to marry you
9) they even send you "documents": bad photoshopped passports and stuff
10) you are hooked, you are in love

I know this is discussed to death, but it can't hurt having more lists that those with experiences with scammers can add more. I notice that sometimes their game switches up, or that there are other signs about them that are not always stressed, that might be useful to add onto a list for potential victims to watch out for.

Here are things I would like to add to look out for that I have found coming from scammers.

1.) In yahoo instant message they adore the "BUZZ" button. They tend to bang on that thing like it's their job. You don't respond within seconds or minutes and wind up with the every annoying "BUZZ" Sometimes consecutively.
2.) They fall for you too fast. Pushy for relationships. You've talked to them for days and suddenly they are adoring you, falling in love, strong connection to you, etc. They even push the love thing even if you tell them you aren't interested.
3.) Some are claiming to be going for masters degree/post grad, etc. asking for money for certificates or journals for school.
4.) To expound on the bad English, they seem to not capitalize most anything and often sound mentally challenged. They also often say the phrase "I will love to know more about you" or some variation. Oh and "Communication is key" or some variation of that.
5.) Their IPS tend to be either nigerian or black hole proxies that are shared (often starting like 172.....)
6.) They are most always god fearing and christian, Catholic in particular. AND they are most often in search of a god fearing mate.
7.) They don't care whether or not you are god fearing, and sooo christian like they are. (remember they just make those claims simply because that's what they think you want to hear and is appealing)
8.) They emphasize the obvious! As in looking for an "honest" and "sincere" person not into games. Who isn't right? (sometimes real people might do this, but the scammers have at least one or more of the above traits in addition)
9.) The men are using the "cheating ex" thing more and more these days just like the make believe females.
10.) They tend to ignore questions. Maybe answering some but not much of them.
11.) They don't mind your age, gender, sexual preference, or anything about you. (Why would they? They want money. I've even baited some that went after male friends, pretending I was a lesbian just to show my friends how they will be lesbian if I want them to be just for the sake of the scam.)
12.) They claim how much they loved your profile even if your profile is hardly filled out and really too basic to love.
13.) They typically try hard to get you to email them first, or get into web cam with them.
14.) I am finding more these days that some want to go straight to phone texting. Probably they keep trying to approach each other by mistake and this is their way of making sure you aren't one of them.
15.) They may stress that they have a combination of exotic nationalities. Mexican-chinese mix, etc.
16.) They sound like they just fell out of a romance novel and came to life for you. They are perfect in every way, have all the right stuff about them.
17.) They are oh sooo tired of being alone, and seem desperate for a relationship.
18.) Very commonly, their occupation is some kind of Engineer, construction worker, goods trader.
19.) 99.9% of those claiming to be in the military while on dating sites, especially deployed in Afghanistan, Iran, Kuwait, especially on "peace keeping" missions, are scammers.
20.) They tend to go into this long drawn out story about their life history, profiling their upbringing, mom and dad to you, etc. Usually their parents are late/deceased too.

That's my list so far, I am sure there can be more to add. Not ALL will happen at once, nor will the scammer show ALL the traits. But you will find a healthy combination of whats on the lists above.

I guarantee you there really is plenty of fish in the sea that are for real, and you don't need this. I've had more than enough experience with REAL people and FAKE mugus (nigerian scammers) to be able to confidently say, REAL people do not show these signs. Think about how YOU dialogue with others. Real people will dialogue a lot like you do. Its a free flow convo, and getting a real person to answer questions is not like pulling teeth unlike with a mugu.

Engineer Mark Muller - Desga Construction Ltd

I found out the scammer from England, phone number +447512627859. He stole photos of a Ukraine politician to post on Tinder dating App.
He told me he got a huge project of a 25 story condominium awarded 50 million British pounds.
When he sent me the Contract Awarded Certificate I surely knew he was a scammer.

Although I had not asked about his passport yet, he sent me it. After I saw the passport, I determined once again he is a scammer exactly. I
hope all women need to be careful and more mindful, and never believe sweet words that scammers gave us, as no-one can love easily like that?!!

Question by Wondering
by: Biggles777

Hello. To add, this will help you find the person you are talking with on Hangouts. The scammers leave a clue you can use the moment you connect with them on the app.

When you accept the chat invitation it stays visible in the app for you. 6 out of 10 will have a photo in their chat profile.

Use the Chrome browser as it allows a Google search. Mouse over the other persons chat profile, don't open, once you're over the image. Right click and select "Google search for this image"

In 5 out of the 6 I mentioned the search returns were of a man with a different name(s) than the one I am speaking with.

They all say they are on an oil rig or ship.

Response to "they are all not evil"
by: Anonymous

Several weeks ago someone wrote that some had revealed themselves to her and that they are just poor and young etc. YES, they are all evil.

Their main purpose is to scam as many women as they can. Their goal is MONEY. They will reveal themselves as just another way to reel you in thinking that if you see them the feelings will be there and you will then fall for their lines of BS.

The one I had finally revealed himself because he wanted me to travel to Nigeria and he knew I was suspicious. We did a video chat and yes, he was a young Nigerian.

After still professing his undying LOVE, he asked for my assistance in helping him with this "business" and asked for $10,000 US Dollars.

Then it was rent money, food money etc. etc. Funny thing, he called me on a video chat while he was getting a shave and a hair cut!

Guess someone sent him the money for that.

It wasn't me.

So, maybe EVIL is not the right word. How about "soulless" or without a conscioness.

They have NO FEELINGS for us white American older women.

They just want our money.

Yes, they are as nice as they can be. But when you keep refusing them, they call you all kinds of names.

Let us not be naive!

Do not send them any money.

Offshore engineer scam
by: Anyone

Photo is an Asian man, born in Sweden and grows up in Sweden, looks professional. 55 years old, without children, parents dead, late wife cheated him and had sex with his best friend, so he has no friend after that, no relatives, so he is taking a big project in the sea of Sicily of Italy.

Very romantic, every sentence with my dear, tell you that it's fate and you are the right woman for him to fall in love again, once the project is done, he will come to see you and you don't have to worry about money.

He will get rich after the project is done. He likes to share everything with you, just like his father and mother did. You're the queen, you are the princess, you are the angel, lots beautiful words.

Then the drilling pump is broken, and he can't finish the project, and he has no-one can help to buy a new pump, only you. If you persist and say no, he calls you with WhatsApp, but his accent is Nigerian.

Re: Question

Hi, to Biggles and the person who asked a question about why scammers want to know if you're on Hangouts.

I came across this on Hangouts myself two years ago and they get mad if we're not on Hangouts ALL the damn time, or ever, as if Hangouts is the be-all and end-all of our lives. It's not and neither is any social media. Yeah, most of us are on one form of social media or another, but we have real-life responsibilities to attend to and goals we want to achieve. Being someone's girlfriend, boyfriend, "wife", etc. is not one of those goals. In short, they don't like us having our own lives to live. Well, tough cookies to them.

Stay safe, brothers and sisters.

Oil Rig Scammer
by: Anonymous

Recently I received a Facebook friend request from a very handsome man whose name was John Paul. On the request we shared mutual friends. The picture he used was of a very handsome man that appeared to be around my age. I am a widow and he was a widower. On his Facebook page he was from Albany, NY.

We went from Facebook to messenger and then he wanted to move our conversations to Hangouts. He quickly fell head over heals in love with me. He was going to spend the rest of his life with me and loving me until the end of time. I knew this was a scam because I had already checked with mutual friends that had never heard of him as well as using other sites to verify my findings.

He is a drilling extraction engineer on a ship. Bottom line is he wanted me to request his vacation from the oil rig. To do this I would have to pay upfront for someone to replace him while he was on vacation with me. My cost for love would have been $2,000 for 2 months and 2 weeks.

Today his Facebook page vanished and so did he. BEWARE of John Paul. The price for his undying love goes as far $7,000 for 7 months and 2 weeks of his love at your home. Don’t worry this woman has left his dead ass at sea somewhere off the cost of Mexico. He says he works for Diamond Oil and Gas Company. He did not get one dime of my money and I do not want him to get anyone else’s money either. I have never heard so much romantic BS in my life.

Like I said BEWARE OF JOHN PAUL. In his picture he is a handsome man with salt and pepper gray hair with a mustache and a very well trimmed beard. I would post a picture if I could, but the image is stolen and that would hurt the man and his family who has had their Facebook account hacked.

Don’t fall for JOHN PAUL!!!!

Oil rig scammers or not
by: Anonymous

I have met someone called Chris Lloyd on Facebook. He told me a very emotional story of how he lost a parent and shut doors for love. He promised to marry me and showered me with love and hope for the future. He told me he was waiting for a contract to go to Italy on an oil rig and he is a drilling engineer.

He asked me to pray for him. I did and he came back from the meeting and said they gave him the contract and he will be leaving with the team to Turkey first to buy materials and move to Italy to start the job. He texted me every morning, lunch time and after work. He promised me that when he comes he will be having a lot of money. I will leave my hated work and start business. He rang me on a video call before he left for Italy so I can see he is real. He put my photo on his Facebook profile but asked me not to tell everyone about our relationship because we can't trust people.

We will tell them after we got married. He was such a nice man not asking anything from me and worried about my safety all the time since I am the only person in his life. He called me his wife. We started Chatting on messenger from the first week if February. The last week of February he disappeared for 2 days. I was worried since the rig is so dangerous. When he came back he told me he was facing challenges at work. The drilling machine is broken and he needs to buy 6 springs. He said they told him it is & 30 000. He said he has 24,500 she needs 4500 to finish the job and he was not allowed to leave the rig without finishing. He told me he left his credit card at home. I should get the money and he will pay me back whatever he borrowed. He said I should borrow the money quickly as he needs to finish the job and come and meet. He is my husband. He made the vow with him that no-one can Separate us. I told him no-one is willing to borrow me that money. He told me to go and get it from loan sharks. He will pay me back. I am the only hope. He loves me so much that he didn't want to lose me. I told him I tried every where. He asked me what I want him to do. Do I want him to lose his job. Do I really love him. I told him I can't find the money.

He asked me how much I have in my hand. I told him I have only money for my family need until I get paid. He asked how much and I said 150. He said he will ask the secretary if she will accept that. He came back and said they refused the 150. I must go get 300 at least as a deposit and get 2500 dollars to help him. The work is Piling up. I told him I can't help him. He must leave me.

He was upset and said after loving me so much and promised the future now I want to leave him because he is facing problems. He still has my pictures on his profile waiting for money and disappeared. I checked his friends that comment in his photos and they are real but all Nigerians. I don't know whether he is real or scammers.

Question by Wondering
by: Biggles777

Hello. "Why do they want you to show when you are active on hangouts?"

Simple. They are criminals and do not trust you. They also want to control you and know as much about who else you are talking to as they are hiding. Two examples;

1: In this thread find my post on Harrison Devea he repeatedly asks me to show I'm active. Even sends me a screenshot on how to do it. He wants to see when I am online.

2: Also in this thread find my post on General Jeffrey Deweese. I could not post it all, but almost daily he asked if I was using Hangouts to talk to anyone else. In this case he said "secrecy". The real reason, he was hiding an obvious stolen identity.

When contact is made on Hangouts they all ask if you are talking to other men or who you use it with. This applies to women more than men.

Finally, if you show as active or not it is useless. Gmail which is what Hangouts is a part of. Shows you as logged in the moment you do until you sign out. To find out how, do this;

Hangouts has a chat window. Open it. If someone is online it will show bottom left of the chat window. It will even tell you what device they are using. A small cell phone icon for a phone and a small PC icon for a desktop.

They think they can hide on Hangouts but they can't.

To the person who asked about scammers wanting to know whether any of us has had someone asking us to be their mule or to send money, the answer is yes. One guy supposedly got himself robbed and beaten in front of his son in South Africa (it turned out that the guy never traveled there) and needed money to pay his hospital bill; another one claimed that he needed money to get off the rig; and one who claimed he needed someone to look after a box for him. I refused to do all three. Two got mad at me and one said he understood. Like you, I never sent any money to any of them.

If this guy is asking you to be his mule, don't do it.

Person asking where to find pics
by: Anonymous

I agree with some of the other comments. They all steal pictures from anyone and everyone and you might not ever find the initial picture. The main thing to acknowledge is that they are not in love with you as they try to act and they are just after your money.

You need to separate your heart from your head.

I was not trusting what my head was telling me and going with my heart. That's what got me in trouble. Cut it short. Cut your losses. As I mentioned organized crime could be involved and money laundering. You don't want to get tied up with that mess.

If you want to get an idea of how sick these people are and just how they legitimised they're scamming take a look at this YouTube video. It'll make you sick to your stomach. They actually feel that white people owe them this money.

https://youtu.be/U4kCN7TZ6us



The other person that posted had a good idea. If you want to see who you really talkin to ask them to put three fingers of their left hand up and have them take a picture of themselves at a certain location. I can guarantee you they will not be able to do this.

I was wondering if the scammers really sent me the real pictures of him. But I know this guy I talk to is a scammer because he asked me for an apple card and he wants 2000 because he needs to fix something that is broken on the oil rig.

I have asked him if he is real and of course he say yes am. But what kind of man asks a women for money. I am try to get proof so I can catch on to his lie but I can't seem to find any. Like I said I even pay already but couldn't find the picture nowhere online.

Question and Question
by: Biggles777

Hello. I see two posts called Question and more than one question. I will try to answer.

Why do they want you to show when you are active on hangouts?

Simple, they're criminals and do not trust you. They want to know when you are on Hangouts so they can monitor when you're online. Look at a post I made on Harrison Davea, he repeatedly asks me to change my Hangouts settings to show online. Even sends a screenshot on how to do it. I refused.

They want control, I said no trust, when you first make contact they'll ask who else you use Hangouts with. Are you talking to any other men. They always say you're the only woman they are talking to. Why do they then ignore you for hours when they are clearly online? It is not just the "status" bar that shows if someone is online on Hangouts. Open their chat window and if they're hidden online it will still show them online and which device. Cell or PC.

How can you find out who the pics are really of?

You just have to make an effort. If you have enough doubt to want to find their photo then do it. Take your time and use every browser you can.

Chrome is good on Windows if you right click the image it does a Google search. It can miss.

So try IE with Bing and do the same right click.

Use this site I find a few here.

Tineye, Yandex (The Russians are very good and give similar pictures) Duplichecker, Oberio and more. As you can see there are many and if one doesn't find the image another will.

"He said they had made funds available to purchase the supply's but I would need to watch for return emails."

It may well be a company that has funds available. But from my experience they use them too. In short, that company is most likely a money laundering account. It will be taking deposits from other victims then laundering them on.

This sounds like you are in the USA so I'll say the company name ends with LLC. That is one step up from a company with a P.O. Box for an address.

About finding out who is in the pictures is kind of random. I ran across a page that had a number of the most common pictures used for scammers. The way I personally found out the one that was scamming me is through a Facebook friend from South Africa. She said that picture is being used all over the place and they even had it on New Zealand news and South African news because so many women were being scammed by Thomas Madsen the real ship's captain from Denmark.

As far as what he's wanting you to do as an assistant it could be laundering money. Stay as far away as you can in any involvement. A lot of organized crime is involved in this too.

Question
by: Anonymous

How can you find out who the pics are really of? I have seen where some of you traced down the owner of the pics and have tried to contact them. I was wondering how I can find the real guy in the pic.

I cannot find any digital footprint for him or his so called daughter. He says they are very careful and dropped all social media when his pics were stolen and used in these scams but I do not believe him.

He asked if I could be his assistant while he was on the rig doing his project for 3 weeks. I ask what that would entail and he sent me an email to some Company he was having to order supplies. He acted like I was his assistant in the letter and it was an order for supplies to fix something on the rig.

He said they had made funds available to purchase the supply's but I would need to watch for return emails. I made up another email and sent it. I received an email back several days later with the purchase price for the supplies in the amount $1,203,907.88.

He then said due to the spotty wifi he would need me to arrange payment to them so he could finish up. I didn't say anything and he said he'd give me access to his bank account. I told him NO I didn't want to do that and if he could email me he could just email them. He got frustrated and said he needed an assistant. When I asked him if they've provided funds why didn't the company do this he said I didn't know how his contract worked but the money was posted in his account.

He then noticed I had used a different email and got upset saying I didn't trust him and I was suspicious of him and I will be making him look like a fool and this will only hurt him starting his own company when he returns home. He is still mad and only text/emailing periodically.

Anyone had this happen? And what does it mean he's trying to do here.

Note to Ed. Any chance you can increase your 10,000 character limit? I made a case study on this scam.

ED. I will contact the site's software developers to see if this can be done. It is a default setting that I can't alter.

Big Red Flag! He will start as sure as you please. The fact he has no social footprint, goes to Hangouts, has a Gmail account with numbers, dead wife, kids etc. means he is a total scammer.

Lucas Biden, does he sound familiar?
by: Anonymous

Got a match with him in Tinder. Says he is from Finland but from Argentina, lived his youth and went to college in California. Wife and child were killed by a drunk driver 7 years ago. Now talking to me about a new oil rig contract and says he has a project coming up with Chevron. Says he is 47. Good photos, beach and holiday life.

Hasn't asked for anything but mentioned he has to pay to start this new contract. Been talking to him on Hangouts and his address is bide9786@gmail.com (numbers something like that) No social media presence.

Still At It!!!!
by: Anonymous

This just happened to my mother. She is an older lonely woman whom believed every word this man said to her (and unfortunately this is not the first time) however this particular man went by the name of Thomas Anderson. Oil rig story - from Scotland story - a daughter that even sent a email to my mother calling her nana.

Anyway this swine has set her up for Several thousand dollars that she now owes to the bank. She is on social security and receives less than a $1000 dollars a month.

He gave her 2 names and two addresses. I looked up the woman's name and found her facebook page. She appears to be in the age bracket that he likes a widow, so someone he may be taking advantage of prior or right now.

On her facebook page she has the photo of Captain Thomas Lindegaard. This is the man that has had his actual identity stolen and the photo of him is being circulated to unsuspecting women.

Please anyone respond.

Do we have a picture of Tony Willams? I was scammed big time by a Tony James. Description is very similar. I found the real "face" here in the United States. I assume that his face was stolen. I tried to call but he wouldn't answer. I tried to friend him on facebook. He blocked me. I emailed him several times without any response from him.

This makes me wonder if maybe he is the scammer? If someone contacted me and told me that someone was using my face to scam people I would contact them right away.

He is still out there reaching out to women of a certain age group on the Professional career website for LinkedIn.com. His profile is a scam as it mirrors the profile for an Emil Wilbekin. A search of both names will result in the dual profiles using the same pictures of a daughter and a mother.

One profile shows the mother has passed away (Emil Wilbekin) and the other profile indicates she lives in Holland. The teenage daughter is the same person on both profiles.

Hello. You wrote the following, a little more for you

"I'm in but I am afraid that someone will let their scammer know about it like they do the scam site."

That might be true. The scammers do come here. But this is the safest anti scam site I know of. Others will not accept a VPN. This site is similar. But what sets this site apart is the Editor.

He knows a lot and reviews all posts, very few other sites do this. So he makes it a very safe environment for victims.

To add to my thought. If you set up a Facebook group and talk about it there, everything will be vetted. Plus when you vet those who join the Facebook group hat is double redundancy and very safe.

So if someone tells their scammer about the group, they have to get through this site and the Facebook group Admin.

If you have that, a scammer will find it very hard to join. They might get a little information but they won't be a member of any group or this site.

The reason I post here is because it is safe and secure. I believe you'd have no problem setting up a Group if you make people go through this site first.

Fred vilgot and geary stefanson
by: Ulrika

I have been totally fooled by first one man claiming he was from Scotland living in Sweden and just when we were to meet he had to leave for an emergency oil rig disaster outside of Norway. All warning signs were there. After a week he loved me and wanted to marry. They are skilled. He bombarded me with love and promises and although your gut feeling sad NO i wanted it so much to be True.

3 days ago all hell broke loose when he suddenly called me at 5am in a panic. His oil pipes were held in customs in Dubai and he wanted me to transfer 26,000 dollars from HIS account to a bank in Dubai. He sent me his log in and password details and says see how much I trust you and you can see I have 15 million dollars in the account. When i Said no I cant do this its FRAUD and why did you not call your bank and make them help you. You can call me so why can you not make the transfer yourself.

Then he went wild and started to SCREAM at me I dont want to be with a woman Who will not support me in Times of crises. He Said show your love and give me 8000 dollars or 6000 dollars or 4000 dollars to prove your love to me. When I Said no i dont have any money he Said lie to your parents or friends and say you are in need. It all ended yesterday when I confronted him that his passport was not genuine. I saw many mistakes as I wrote from which African country are you from. Are you woman or a man etc and then he made his last and wrote Please forgive me. I Will be home next Thursday and I still love you but please I need 4300 dollars and if you give me this I know you love me. I said you will never get money from me and he blocked me from the hangout app we had used to communicate.

I feel stupid and heart broken and in shock now understanding all the red warning signs and all uneasy gut feelings I felt in my stomach. I did not give Any money away but i guess he is now using my profile and photos to scam others. And now a second man contacted me on the dating app TINDER working in the oil industry. Maybe the same man again. I dont know.

I really Wish I could find these two real men and let them know what is happening to them and others. Thank you.. 🌹🌹

Shane N. on Fitbit
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Hi, all, The other night, I got a friend request on Fitbit from a guy who calls himself Shane N., with a picture of a United States Marine. It started out okay, until he asked me if I had Hangouts or WhatsApp. I told him I don't use Hangouts and that's how scammers isolate women from their families.

He got really mad that I called him a scammer. I came back with "I'd rather stay on Fitbit" and blocked him. Considering the guilt trips other scammers tried to lay on me, I'm not convinced that some guys aren't trying to scam anyone.

How do I know that that Marine's photo hasn't been stolen?

Barristers
by: Speintcargranny

These so called Barristers are their people also. Had one. It is just another part of the scams they run. I think mine put me through most all the tricks. The lawyers are part of scam. Their so called agents are either women they have got to fall for them, are part of their scam team.
Everything they pull isn’t true.

They have some of us women that they get all our money for broke equipment, helicopters to get off rig, food and heat jackets, etc, etc.

Then there are the women they get to receive the money that is then their mule for receiving and sending money illegally.

There is nothing these people do that is for good for any of us. They are pure evil and destroy our lives.

I pray everyday that this site and what we write in here just saves women from losing their whole life, like some of us. I wish I had been more computer smart but, wasn’t. Like most of you I was just a trusting woman and didn’t know such people exist. It’s too late for me but pray others will be saved from these evil people.

The lady that said they aren’t all bad and evil. You are wrong. These people lie, cheat, steal, from innocent people everyday. There is no excuse for what the do to us.

Lord forgive me but, I hope everyday mine has to suffer for what he did to me and my family by me trusting that he was an honest, God fearing person.

Everything they say is a LIE !!

by: Biggles777

Hello. You are right in that you should not give out your email address anywhere if you've been scammed.

In fact, it may well be your primary email but you should change it after being scammed. I know a woman who had her Gmail accessed while she slept. That means the scammers got the recovery email and phone number of her without her knowing.

There are always vulnerabilities in Gmail, that is why they pay a hacker bounty.

Be very careful with real emails anywhere on the web.

As a thought, if you all wish to communicate in a safe environment set up a closed Facebook group. In there you can talk and no one but members will see. No need for emails. If someone steps up to manage it only those invited can join. I'm sure there is a safe way to vet members so the scammers can't access the group.

You asked for a though and here is one!

Good luck

Here is a good one

I have been very busy trying to sort out ways to get Mr. Maxwell Quintin released out of jail in Mexico and fortunately, I have some good news because I discussed with the head of authorities over there in Mexico and they have agreed to get him released when I provide some required documents which will cost about $68,590 in total.

Now it's not time to complain about the amount requested because Mr. Maxwell Quintin have so much money in his Offshore Payment Bank account and I just finished conversation with the bank branch manager on how to get some money from his account on his behalf and he have requested that the Spouse or fiancee of Mr. Maxwell Quintin should contact the bank and request for a Third Party Right (TPR) to have access to his funds on his behalf and also make transfers on his behalf.

So kindly send an email to the account manager on the email below and let the bank know that you're his fiancee and I've instructed you to contact the bank to grant you TPR to his account.

Offshore Payment Bank
Account manager: Mrs. Claudia Pegminton
Email: account.dept@offshorepayment.pw

Keep me updated on everything so that after you have granted access to his account, I can send you the bank account details given to me for the transfer of $68,590 for the documents to release Mr. Maxwell Quintin from jail in Mexico.

I'm waiting to hear from you after you have contacted the bank.

Hi, Ciara, I came across a similar type of scammer that you did almost two years ago, who went by the name of Ethan Lee and claimed to be a widower, with a teenage son in boarding school in Tennessee. He claimed that his wife died in a car accident. Oh, and he claimed to be in the US Army. He used a picture of an American of Asian-possibly Chinese or Korean - heritage.

He professed love for me right away, which I thought was suspicious, and a month into that, he asked me to keep something for him, which I refused to do because I could get in trouble. I told him why. After that, I did a Google search on this "Ethan Lee" and then blocked him.

The guy that I was talking to I know definitely is a Nigerian in his 20s or 30s. He even tries to act Godly by asking for prayer and quoting scriptures. The guy is really slick. He's a pathological liar. If any of you guys out there would like to mess with one of these scammers use the link above and go after Tcaptain!!!

He was also using a lot of beautiful flowery romantic language in his writings. Come to find out if you Google some of what they are telling you they even have a scam site that gives them templates of language to use in scamming. These people are sick in their souls.

Dont give out your your phone number [mobile or landline] as they can distribute it to the public. They come up with a story to get your assistance. They are using a Special Phone Sevice that requires the CODE. It will be played to you
Or you get the text from Google.

The Scammer is Going through The Google Voice
SET UP PROCESS. They have Google Voice to text the number to your phone number. Once the code is given to him he has just set up a brand new account Google Voice Number to use the new identity to steal from another. It happens. They all go through US to get Google Voice Numbers so they aren't traceable. They can work I say 50 women on each line at the same time. 100 women will fall prey well these guys live well in poor countries. Dont do it.

Keep in mind all have accents but they could be in your City. Kids are catching on to this and the Younger generation are superior with using
technology and Use Apps for pranks using a
number they make up.

I Wanted you to know about another one of schemes. Do Not GIVE CODES. DO NOT OPEN UP ANY TYPE OF LINK. I WOULDN'T EVEN OPEN A YOUTUBE
LINK AS IT MIGHT NOT BE MUSIC.

He got in touch through email. Seemed very nice and a gentleman. Contact was made in November. He would get off the rig soon and go back to his home in Los Vegas. He would come to where I live and we would start a new business from his contacts in the states AND as Christmas got closer he said he loved me and would take care of me for our lifetime.

Well, soon his daughter came into the picture. She was on a school exchange in turkey. There is no mom and she was only around 15 to 17. Then he told me his daughter was not talking to him. No reason why.

He asked me to send her $500. I told him I did not have that much money and no I would not send her that much money. He got very ma .and called me names.

I was then asked to buy her a camera by that time I knew he was a fraud. I went along about buying a camera. Next time I talked to him he asked if I got it. I said got what. He got made and called me names.

Report names, faces, everything you have. Washington DC has an Embassy for Nigeria, Germany, and Africa so report everywhere.

So many stolen pictures but dont stop reporting them. If we dont report them we have no right
to complain. Use the only tools you have which is the info you have. Most of all we need the God, dedicated women and anyone who will pray. We
have no right to what we dont ask for.

We have been taken advantage of by these corrupt
groups of people who use psychology to manipulate
our emotions. They are Fake Frauds. They are
100% Felons many times over. So now this Corona virus is headed to Nigerian as pay back and has
a way of getting back.

Beware, Read, Listen, Guard All your Hearts, listen to every detail you can squeeze out of these guys. Most play hop scotch over their life and get into yours to STEAL YOUR LIFE. STEAL YOUR SECURITY. LOOK UP AND PRAY.

Read The Information
by: Anonymous

Social Catfish has a lot we all need to
go there and educate yourself. If you are sent any kind of Link even if it's YouTube music do not open anything with a LINK TO ANY WHERE.

I received several but it was that I might receive free coins. If you do right
things it seems to work in certain ways, but I
went there, but nothing worked and I could
not enter the site. I also was given a Link to a so called account (along the way I asked as he
wanted funds, do you not bank online)? No havent had time to set it up.

They have an EXCUSE for everything. The Link was
sent ignorantly (I never heard of these romance scams) opened it and he said you cant go there I'm out of states. All to know is if his pay went in. I sent a screenshot and he made sure he called the amount to me. After this once again he wanted me to go there and open the link but it wouldnt accept the password.

He has secrets to Hide. I believe he changed the password and had me go back in to see if it was safe after two years of being away. Once in another city he needed money to get home
from there which was just a hoax. When he gets home they took it all. Nothing in there.

Be careful as all are not Nigerian but have accents and live in America and they have taken up the Scam trade. He told me once I'm afraid I'll be taken for an immigrant. Well known internationally but knows no one and I'm the only one who can help. Mentally Ill and they dont care if you are hurt or go hungry or have a place to stay.

ITS ALL ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN GET OF YOURS

I dealt with this same exact guy but different name. He’s a scammer and broke my heart. Finally fessed up that he was Nigerian. Pictures are photo shopped but some were actual pictures stolen from a beautiful man named victor sayegh. I reached out to the real guy because I was in love with him. Found him on FB.

He said his pictures have been used for over 10 years. Ruined his life. I wonder how many guys that we are dealing with have used this picture. It took me a month to get over my fake love victor sayegh. I lost money and the real guy said he still gets two women a month reaching out to him hurt and in love and angry. At least he responded to me. This site has been so validating.

Hi, I think I am being scammed by this person who says he loves me and wants to be with me but he is stuck on an oil rig. We have been chatting on Hangouts for several months now and he is very attentive but at times can be very mean when I don't do what he asks me to do.

It's the same guy that scammed me. Exactly the same. Don't send him any more money! He says he will pay you back and NEVER does! He's a pathological liar. Cut him off now! He's from Nigeria and is about 30 yrs old and working with some others in the United States.

He went by the name Thomas then wrote back and apologized and said his name was Fredrick! Give me a break!!

Captain Thomas
by: Anonymous

The guy is targeting women in their 50s and 60s. He goes by Thomas, a captain for Maersk. He uses scriptures and other such things and tries to act Godly. I'm sure he is Muslim and I'm sure he's from Nigeria.

He's targeting Christian women in particular because he thinks they are trustworthy and gullible. He sent me a message like the other woman in this thread, saying he's from Nigeria and that he is apologizing. I know his mother is living (God showed me) but he is still swearing on his mother's grave.

The guy's a pathological liar.

Re Michael Abramson

The person who broke my heart and got me to send money to him gained my trust by asking me to go into his bank account and transfer money for him. Now I realize what a ruse it all was, but at the time the recorded message (that he obviously masterfully orchestrated) said at the end of the transaction that his remaining balance was $26.4M.

I did check the bank name, and it does exist, but I don’t know how he managed to get a recorded message to play for me that was obviously fake. A lot of planning! What a waste of talent. Your story sounded similar, although the name used was different. Was the "bank" he used in New York and did it give you his remaining balance?

Just wondered if it was the same guy. I know he had to change his name because I finally figured out whose identity he had stolen. Would love to hear more details from you. Certainly is a well-organized effort!

Sorry your heart was also broken. It took me a long time to finally accept what had happened, but I still have feelings for this person who didn’t even exist. I have read that for some of us, it results in something similar to PTSD. I agree!

Wishing you well in your recovery.

He sent Me flowers and chocolate. The usual scam ad professed His love very early. I fell for Him hard then I did not send Him any money but got My satisfaction when I told Him I would send Him money by the end of that week and that Day I called Him out as a scam since I found His name out to be a Scam earlier that week.

Of Course He denied everything. Well to My surprise I did delete everything but one of His numbers and got a text saying that He is sorry He lied to me about everything. He is living in South Africa and sorry He hurt me. He told me He was 35 not 59. I am in such shock at this point I guess GUILT got to him finally. Sad but very true

Luckily, I didn't give him any money, but I almost did. I was in love with the person I thought he was. It was devastating to learn the truth; that I was talking to a young man from Nigeria!

The latest was last year on Twitter who called himself Chris Wilfred, who claimed to have lost his wife to a medical condition I'd never heard of and who claimed to have a son named Jerry. The other few claimed to have lost their wives to cancer or a car accident.

All lies and says he is on a oil rig in the Shetland Islands working BP building platforms then something happened to his crane that needed repairs of 30000. He will ruin you if given enough time mentally and financially. He left me broken hearted and left to pick up the pieces while he goes off to his next victim killing her slowly as the victim he left behind

We all have rights and ours have been stripped

He was suppose to come on Valentines Day but they wont give him a chopper to take him to Texas to get his check. He needs $6700 to get him and his crew a chopper to get to Texas.

I drew the line there. I have been suffering with no money for myself. I couldn't get my medication and I am out of my blood pressure depression and anxiety pills. He was begging me to send the money cause he is living in hell and he wants to come get me and marry me. What a joke. I blocked his number.

David Miles

My sister is currently talking to a "David Miles" on an offshore oil rig in Germany. He’s white, has beard, about 58 years old he says, is widowed, son named Patrick 9 yrs and daughter named Tessa 11 yrs who are in boarding school in Columbus, Ohio. He lives in Columbus Ohio, has Spanish accent, yet was raised in Australia.

He’s an engineer on the oil rig. He requests iTunes cards, apple products, and a" "loan" of $4000 which he swears he’ll double into "$12,000" ... which obviously isn’t double! Needs it to "secure his funds" because he got paid over a million cash while working on the rig which he’s now stuck on.

Makes no sense! He uses several other people in the scam to make it more believable, including his oil rig boss, kids private/boarding school, lady who takes product orders for people on rig.

I’m sure he’s a scammer. She doesn’t quite see it yet. Checked his name in whitepages.com and no info aligned with what he told her about himself. That’s a sure sign of a scammer! Also the pics he sent to her can’t be reverse image checked because they hold no online location/address. Also, the pics can’t be saved to the phone! That’s the sure sign of a professional. I’ll post pic here to see if it will load. IMG_6451.JPG

My sister is a recent widow with kids so she really needs every cent she sent to him.

He sounds like one I deal with. He gets mad at anything i dont do to his liking. Mainly cards. What is a DTR phone. Fellow told me earlier this month my Phone was dead but he gave excuse he knew would get to me. Hurt is another word. When I told him I didn't have money for a card he said
I'm Hurt. Havent heard another word. They are working puzzles from one woman to next.

It's no use looking for person they are pretending to be. They are weary of being contacted and this stuff tears their marriages apart. I would like to know what your guy looks like. Mine cries too. Eyes, hair, glasses and dimples. This has turned my world inside out. Lies.

Be careful and watch out for yourself.

He will say just keep your money if you dont want to help me. I've heard excuses for everything he tells me but nothing about him. Some of the stories would blow your mind. If its a dead phone how did he text. I'd love to know more of your story. God bless All

Asked for an eBay gift card so he can watch movies on his computer and when I asked about Netflix he said the rig had a deal with eBay, again he’s in google hangouts and met him on Instagram.

He’s told me he’s from California, lived in Tampa and sold his house there and will move anywhere I want to live with. Major red flags but he sent a picture I really want to try and match him up with whoever he’s stolen his identity.

To Biggkes777. Thank you! He is on a oil rig right for 3 weeks. His dtr phone got turned off and he can't use his cards from the rig due to poor service etc. Needed $70 to turn it back on. I told them that I will not give money to people I don't know well enough.

He said he didn't need my money and I didn't know his worth. I told no I didn't and didn't want to but I still couldn't help them. He and her? Said they find it hard to believe I didn't have $70. I told them I didn't have it to spare right now and so then they moved on and he said he emailed a friend from home NY and he would take care of his dtr.

He is still mad and called me pretending to cry and said he was losing his mind if he lost me. I just told him that he fits the script to a T. He was very hurt that I keep thinking he's a scammer. Lol!

I hung up on him and would not answer anymore calls. He has now gone away and not sent anything to me in hours.

Why? What is wrong with people to play with your emotions like that. I'm so thankful I found this site. Oh and he's supposedly going to send me a ring. I didn't give my address but he got it off LinkedIn where I started my business and I had my info on there like an idiot. I have since removed it.

Hello

Look at his story it is the same as the many you will find in this thread.

Divorced (or something similar)
An only child not living with him
He is on Hangouts (ask for a work email)
The daughter asked for money, they got upset

The daughter asking you for $150 is then testing you to see if you pay. She'll likely have a Hangouts account too. It is him talking to you as "her"

About the photo he sent you. These people are very good at what they do. Take the image and enlarge it on your desktop. You will see;

-Blur around the paper
-Whoever is in the picture will not have fingers FIRMLY holding the paper.
-There'll be light shadows around the paper

In short, the photo is two images overlayed into one in Photoshop or Lightroom. They do this all the time. I'll be posting some elsewhere on this site shortly. I make them the 2 images that are overlayed into 1

That he has no digital footprint is another flag. He is very good at hiding who he really is and does not want to be found. It starts with his name and snowballs over time.

Good luck and keep reading this thread and site as you will see all the similarities.

To Biggles777: I've been talking to him for 3 months. He says he lives in NY. He's a structural engineer been divorced 8 yrs, has a 16y/o daughter who lives with her mom in Miami. He has had her text me on hangouts so we can get to know one another and she's sent pics to me.

I ask him for a pic of either him touching his nose or of him holding a piece of paper with the date and time. He was upset at first stating I don't believe he's who he says he is and it hurts him deeply. I just told him if he couldn't do this to prove he was real then i was blocking him on everything.

Later on that evening he sent a pic of himself which looked like his profile pic and he was holding a piece of paper that had date time and it said I love you with my name on it.

He hasn't asked for any money and he says he is comfortable but his daughter ask for $150 to buy some things saying her dad was strict. When i refused they both got mad and said I made them feel awful. I told him I was already scared I was being played and I would NEVER send them money. We finally moved past that for now.

I have searched for him and even paid to do a search and I can't find any digital footprint for him. I told him and he cried saying he loved me and he believed who I was but was devastated I looked for him that way. I told him I was not talking on hangouts anymore.

If i couldn't talk the way normal people do via phone, text or emails then it was over. We had at first talked via text and calls on the phone but he said he was switching from one carrier to another so hangouts is where we text until I told him that.

He finally started texting and calling from a phone which I looked up and its from NJ.
I've talked to him many times on the phone and he does have an accent and he uses slang like
"I'm sorry I slept off" I seen on here where someone said that Nigerians use that slang.

I want to believe he's real but deep down I know he's not. Has anyone heard this name. He sends me many pics of him doing different things. I got him to finally tell me what company he worked for. He was hesitant because he said I have searched for him and he couldn't take the chance of me calling them to verify he worked there. Lol

He is on a consulting job now in Russia on an oil rig for 3 weeks or so he says. I just need some insight. He tried to tell me not everyone has a digital footprint and that he's very careful.

Help! My heart is falling for him.

Another Oil Rig Engineer from ENI company
by: Anonymous

I have been chatting with this man for 4 days now and how sweet is it to fall in love with a stranger in that short span of time lol! He claims he is Brazilian who works offshore with ENI (Italian energy company. He is divorced with 2 kids - 1 kid with her mother and the other kid with his grandma. Same old story he said they are not allowed to have video calls in the rig and it is too risky. added drama: he misses his children coz he cannot even video call with them. When he said that on our first chat I have hints already that he may be a scam but let's see what he has got on his sleeves. He rids my boredom anyway lol so long there is no money involved.

So far, he has not asked for money YET. He said he dont like the job but he likes the salary. Gave me the figure EU 150k annually (Juicy)!. He said he plans to have a vacation in March and if I am free he'll come to meet me where i was with his daughter so lets see about that.

I am posting this in case anyone knows Mendonca Rafa. Quite a good looking guy and sexy AF too lol what a catch right!:p I've seen his accounts IG/ FB and twitter - looks legit as the profile is not new unless the person im talking too uses that person's name and sending me the pics in that acct.

So what i'll do, i will try to add him on my IG (it's a private account) and if this rig engineer im talking to ever mentioned anything about the adding up or if the one I added never accepted my follower request - then that answers the question. I might even message that person that his account is being used by a scammer lol.

WWF Scammer Davidzxyt/ David A Ray. So here goes my encounter LOL. David Alexandru a 49 year old Romanian engineer living in Oakridge,Tennessee sent out on a contract to work in the oil rigs in the gulf of Mexico.

He is a master at WWF he can play in: German, English, French and Spanish. He claims he is a widow, as his Phillipino wife died of cancer. He is childless and just has a boston terrier dog Coco! He has a picture of Coco with a rose in his mouth.

He is sly and attempts to win you over with his charm. He is never perverted and his knowledge and understanding of English is incredible. "He" loves to travel and has apparently been to 14 countries. He intends on retiring after this last contract and travel with you and indulge in enriching cultures.

He requests that you text on "WhatsApp". He will chat you up intermittently all day when on work breaks and lure you in.

Some red flags: phone number is a google voice number, 2 he cannot webcam because it's too risky on the rig. Then he plays a video muted out of this guy quickly and ends the call, and never recent photos. All photos of an attractive middle aged man are the same person. He is almost always in a blue shirt with well styled hair and a groomed goatee. Some pictures differ with black framed reading glasses or black sunglasses.

The scammer will request your photo then do a side by side of him and you together lol. They can definitely mess with your head psychologically!

In voicechat they have a distinct, thick African accent LOL. Soon he will begin to request STEAM gift cards and try to manipulate you into sending them.

I uploaded his photo's to google reverse and the pictures have been used so many times.

Ladies - Oil Rig Scammers (Nigerian Playbook)

Okay, here is what I learned after talking to a man for over 4 months before he asked for money.
First of all, please know this is a HUGE operation. It helps to google Nigerian scams and you will learn a bit more about this con game. In fact, I spent so much time googling Nigerian scams one night that I actually found an entire script they use for each part of their relationship with you!

Once I knew for sure it was a scam, I decided it would be fun to waste his time and mess with his head. (Yes, I could have told him I caught him but it was much more fun to hurt his ego by rejecting him as a man WHILE knowing he would have to report it back to his bosses. I also got banking account information that was easily traced to people in the US.)

So here’s the deal:

1) He will profess his interest in you immediately. Falling in love with you soon after.
2) He’s rich - well traveled
3) Wife died and has child / Got financially ripped off by a woman or she broke his heart…HE CREATES STORIES TO TUG AT YOUR EMOTIONS
4) If you have a young child and he knows it, HE WILL TOO! Then he will ask about your child all the time and profess his love for him/her EVEN THOUGH HE HASN’T MET YOUR CHILD!
5) He is always asking about your health and wants to pamper you! MAKE YOU DINNER, MASSAGE YOUR FEET, PAY OFF YOUR BILLS, GIVE YOU THE SUN AND MOON
4) He may be "busy" and disappear for a little bit to stir up your emotions.
5) He called me "QUEEN" and loves me "MORE". (Non-stop silly emojis)
6) He will ask you nonstop questions about yourself and want selfies of you - EVENTUALLY ALL OF HIS HOPES AND DREAMS WILL SUDDENLY MATCH YOURS!
7) Has an accent: YOUTUBE NIGERIAN ACCENTS!
8) Problems with machinery - needs helicopter to get to mainland because internet is not secure: THEY DON’T PAY FOR CREW OR MACHINERY EVER!
9) If he says certain non-America sayings: GOOGLE THEM! He kept saying "I SLEPT OFF".
NIGERIANS USE THAT PHRASE!
10) His phone number will be a VOIP#.
11) You won’t be able to find him in a google search!
12) USE GOOGLE REVERSE SEARCH IMAGE ON HIS PICTURES (The ones I was given were taken from someone on Instagram.)
13) Don’t give him any personal information about yourself but if you do: CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS IMMEDIATELY!
14) If you don’t give him money, you will see a new nasty personality come out...and he will guilt you in an attempt to make you feel bad enough to change your mind and send him money!
15) DON'T FALL FOR ANY BITCOIN MONEY TRANSFERS!

CONTACT THE FBI THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE AT: WWW@ID3.GOV. (Who knows, maybe if enough of us do, these guys will get arrested.)

Sounds like same guy on TikTok
by: Anonymous

Sounds like the same guy on TikTok. He goes by @gregg8560 I reported him to TikTok and e added me to Instagram and the account there disappeared. He said he has a Trinidad accent when I asked him to talk on messenger and showed me a video instead of live himself on messenger. He said divorced 4 years ago due to his wife cheated and on drugs and has two sons.

Pics of him with grey beard on a luxury vacation. Said he is an oil rig engineer. He immediately said live at first sight and wanted to chat me up constantly and all about god. Said he lives in San Mateo California. Why then are you trying to talk to me in Indiana.

The pics look like a model. I feel bad for other women and the guy he stole the pics from. I noticed all his friends on here from Instagram and tiktok are women. Professes his parents passed away and his brother won’t talk to him and he hates lying.

Be careful ladies if it sounds too good to be true. It is!

If it’s too good to be true...
by: Anonymous

My "Knight in Shining Armor" went by the name of Justin from Australia and found him on Our Time. He spent over a month wooing me with stories of love, how beautiful I was how much he liked my smile and we were meant to be.

Handsome guy with accent - wife died of cancer 4 years ago. Daughter going to law school - lonely ready to start a new chapter. Always had an excuse why we couldn’t meet. Removed his profile from the site because he met me and I was the one sent to him from god. Lots of texting talking on the phone (he even talked to my daughter) Skyped once but then he had to head out of town for his last contract job before retiring.

Sent me pics of him and his daughter and the new Tesla. After almost a week on the rig I get an early morning text that something bad happened—the machine broke and it would cost $75k to fix it. He couldn’t get access to all of his money so he needed $30k.

Really? This guy (Or guys) were really good and he had me going. Didn’t give him a dime and never would. Learned a lot and now I know the signs up close and personal.

Remember if it’s too good to be true it’s too good to be true. Be safe out there and NEVER GIVE THEM ANY MONEY!

Hi, I think I am being scammed by this person who says he loves me and wants to be with me but he is stuck on an oil rig. We have been chatting on Hangouts for several months now and he is very attentive but at times can be very mean when I don't do what he asks me to do.

I have already loaned him several thousands of dollars to fix his oil rig and he still needs more money so he can leave the rig. He says they will not pay for his transfer. He has no money to eat so I provide him every once in a while with iTunes card and now he is asking for Steam cards. I love him very much and I want to be with him but now I am getting very mistrusting of his actual intentions.

Has anyone ever been involved with this person and can help me figure this out?

Paul Magnus / Sample of poems
by: PJ

The two paragraphs below are copied from texts from him. I did not keep any of his emails of love letters. They had titles of My Heart Calls For You, Let’s Make Beautiful Memories, Love Declaration, My Mind Is Made Up, My Plans For Us.
I could tell when he typed his own words, misspelled words and did not capitalize the word "I". When I told him I did not want any more love letters just to be friends, he got upset and started to blame me for my past of fear. He was good with many bible quotes.

I always questioned him about his identity and wanted actual pictures of him on the job site but would come up with excuses of safety and against the security laws. I did cut all ties and blocked him on the sites. I do feel bad for the person’s identity that he stole from. Hope this helps others to not fall for him again. Cut him to the chase, he’s a scammer!


TEXTS
You have rescued me from every chain of boredom and loneliness. You came into my life and my world and life have never been the same again. You’ve given me what to live for as you gave my life a meaning and purpose. With you in my life, my joy and happiness know no boundaries. I love you to the moon and back, baby
Truth is, I can’t live without you and your love. Because your love is the air that I breathe and the best medicine for my health and heart. I can’t survive a day without you nor your love, just the same way plants can’t live without carbon dioxide. I need you every day my love

Danish but from Houston Texas
by: Anonymous

Contacted me on Instagram. Says he is Danish but lives in Houston as that is where his Company Baker Hughes is based. 55 widowed and has a daughter Helen who is in a boarding school in Turkey. Cant wait for us to be together and when I said I was telling my mum and sister he said no he wanted it to be a surprise. Said he is on an oil rig in the Brent oil field off Shetland. He cant send photos as he signed a secrecy contract and he can only communicate in Hangouts.

He said his contract is until the end of March but he cant wait that long to see me and could I email his manager and say he was needed at home in an emergency. I did, then I got asked for all my details and then I got told I needed to pay insurance to get him leave.

I said no. He said he hasnt got access to a bank account on the rig. He would pay me back. I said I would try and find it and I have not spoken to him since but he is constantly bombarding me with messages. I have reported this but I am worried as they know so much about me. I even got a strange text about my apps being disabled and I needed to log on to verify who I was. No way i sent it straight to the fraud office. The other thing is they have photos of me so I am probably going to be blackmailed as well, this all happened the last week and I cannot believe at my age I have been so stupid and I cannot tell any of my friends and family. I just hope one day they get caught.

Born in Denmark, resides in NC contract award for supervisor was for 100 million and the contract was from 3/15,19 until 8/15/19. He worked for Transocean. On 2 days before contract was up, an explosion took place in the engine room (sound familiar!) Now he states he is responsible for replacing the machine which will cost $500,000 He needs $3500 to get to his bank so he can get the money.

Oh but wait, he cant get that amount because he doesnt have collateral so he's back to where he started. Can I help with the amount for the machine. Weeks later he calls me to say the shipment is in but he needs to pay customs $48,000 in Belgium. I dont have it.

He gets irate, but a few days later he asks me to help him with airfare of $7,000 to get to his other bank where someone paid him for a job and put it into an account that he hasn't used in a while.

So he has to prove he is alive... better wear protective clothing

This man started chatting me up on a Fitbit app. He was so charming and generally seemed interesting and asked pretty benign questions. We chatted on and off on Fitbit then he invited me to go to the hangout app to chat more. He sent many pictures and invited me to send him some too.

He wasn’t dirty or graphic so I had nothing to worry about or so I thought. We chatted happily for days then he asked me for an iTunes card. I made excuses why I couldn’t do this then things changed dramatically.

His answers were short and he lost interest in chatting. I went on the fit bit app and accused him of ghosting me for no reason then he went into a tirade about hurting himself and that he couldn’t believe that all this fuss was over an iTunes card.

Thank God I never gave him any money. I just enjoyed the excitement

My grandmother was scammed by this guy. Always finding new ways to ask her for money. He always promised her money when they married "soon". He said he had a 6 year old daughter in boarding school and his ex wife killed herself.

He says he makes excellent money on a oil rig but needs to borrow 10, 20, 30 or more dollars for phone cards so he can call her but then never does.

I think he is 50 or 55 years old. He sent her a 9.00 necklace from Amazon and a fake diamond for engragement ring.

He says he is very spiritual and says he goes to church and loves God with all his might.

He is a predator.

You do not have to stop playing WWF. Change your profile picture, and your user name. Sometimes they do write down your user name so they CAN find you later and send you more game requests using different identities.

He had a daughter and she died when she was 3 of M.S. Has a son 7 named Nelson who was married but found his wife in his bed with her boss. He thus divorced her and was living in Macolm Oklahoma then she went back to Norway and he now lives in San Francisco. He really is a good talker. I am married but having some problems so decided to see who was on this site.

BIG MISTAKE. He would tell me how much he knew it was a God send that we found each other and he wanted to come to Tucson to buy a 5 bedroom house and marry me.

REALLY NOT EVEN KNOWING ME.

I just went along with it and he has in Singapore on a 8 million dollar project on a rig and he sent me pics of what an oil rig was and he was emphatic I observe the video and to make a long story short he needed money after 2 months of talking and a little money 50.000 dollars.

Hmmm. It started out by needing airfare money to get to a bank in NC. Sent $3500 swore he would pay me back. Never saw a penny of it returned oh and then an explosion happening in the engine room and he needing money to buy the machine that was damaged.

Machine costing $5oo,000 and sent him $27,000 and he promised to pay it back as soon as he bought the machine and was awarded his contract money of $100 million.

Could I get him a new phone and it ended up with me getting 3 phones and an apple watch while I was in the store. Swore he would pay it back as soon as he was able to get his contract money. Needed $800 to get the phones to him. I refused and next he had to go to Belgium to buy this machine. I know he had custom charges, but i refused to pay, and now he wants $7,000 for airfare to NC to get to his bank and prove he is still alive.

Hmm I refuse, love affair dies and I am out of $35,000.

Oil rig scam continues
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Hi, there. That scammer's story sounds exactly like the "Dennis Marguilles" who said exactly that! Widower with two kids, needs to pay money to get off the oil rig and get home to his two kids and pay his nanny. Uses a picture of a real estate agent and sweet words to scam us.

The real Dennis doesn't need to scam for money because he earns his own the good old fashioned way: By working for it.

Jeff Carlton, aka Robert Collins, aka Chris Lar, aka Benj123 (according to reverse image lookup). Uses a picture of himself in a black/white shirt with peace signs, grey hair and beard, blue eyes.

Said his wife and daughter died in a plane crash, his young son (Owen) was in NY with a nanny while he worked his "last" big contract on an oil rig. Wasn’t able to access his bank account from the middle of the ocean; please get gift cards and send him the numbers, or BitCoin, or wire transfer.

Also sent "proof" of his contract with Exxon worth $10 million. As soon as this contract is done, he’ll make all your dreams come true.

Avoid this miserable heartless excuse of a human being like the plague.

SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY
by: Anonymous

Friends saddens me the posts daily. But, I do see
we are getting it. It takes the school of hard
knocks. But, we can help stand in the gap for those who come here, they are suspicious. These posts are priceless to them.

These scammers use psychology and it is called
Reciprocity it means in response to Friendly
Actions, Rewarding kind actions.

They give us our emotional desires in return
they expect payment for their kind words that
mean nothing. Not all scammers are Nigerians,
even though in Nigeria many are schooled
and educated but say the country is poor no jobs. They are well educated in psychology. The only way to stop it is too give up social media. Scams
are rapid. If you don't go there you will
not have contact with them.

Reverse the Psychology.

Oil rig scam continue

Well as I Have said, I was scammed by a man calling himself Seth Roland, I couldn't let it go I had to know for sure. Did a picture search and found his handsome picture and It belonged to a CNN journalist, and TV personally from turkey so be careful, he's a charmer and will compliment you every so sweetly then ask for money.

He said he's a widow with two kids and must get off the oil rig. He claimed to live in USA and has duel citizenship. He calls and sounds Turkish. He says his son wants to talk to me too. His name is Jeffery. And I have no doubt that they are one in the same. Wants gift cards, and he has papers that he needs to get off rig.

Wants 12'000$ to send the package to me so i can fax paper to a company so he can get home to crying kids. Oh and there are diamonds in the package also and he will give me all the money I've paid him and more.

Girls beware! He has all kind of answers to my questions! Dumb no more!!

Woke this morning to a lovely Good Morning message. I cordially engaged and then the very first thing he asked me was if I was able to install the HANGOUTS APP. Wow. I said no, that I was in some meetings hadn't yet had the time. He then immediately said we should communicate via text or phone. Asked me point blank for my number.

I called him out and said whats wrong with this platform? It seems to be working just fine and that LinkedIn is a business platform and not a dating site.

He got silent, very rude with his comments and then accused me of having a bad day. At that point I reported him to LinkedIn and after a short while his account was then mysteriously deleted.

I thought at first he was a guy I went to school with. Nope not him. He was born in Germany and placed in a orphanage. He was adopted and raised in Germany & New York State. He now lives in Minnesota. He is widowed with a 15 year old son.
His wife and daughter died in a head on collision in August 2014.

He is a engineer contractor on a oil rig in the North Sea near Oslo. Very charming, religions, romantic, asks for pictures all the right stuff. He will send a couple pictures but says he cant do much because of security on the rig. I ran a security check on his story and nothing was true. I continued to get information out of him to try to stop him.

He has asked for amazon gift cards for his son Harry. He needs them for a school project and Craig is having a issue with his bank. He will ask for you to send them to a email for his son harryboy001@yahoo.com

I have not sent anything. I have told him something must have went wrong when the cards where rang up. He is a charmer ladies, a snake charmer. Do not believe anything he tells you, all lies. He has a answer for everything you ask ! Played the game to irritate him and it worked.

Same thing from a coy guy on LinkedIn. Random friend request and almost immediately tells me he is a widow and has a daughter whom he misses terribly. Says he is "a petroleum Geologist/supervisor ~ I supervise the drilling of black crude oil in the eastern sea of Doha Qatar." (Middle East)

Said he was on a three year contract and its almost up that he cant wait to get back home to LA.

Almost instantly he asked me: "Where are you originally from if you don’t mind me asking?"
Gut instincts made me leery. Especially on the business platform.

That's when I started to search for him on the web. He was not on any socials, nothing showed up except for his LinkdeIn profile info which was sparce. I asked him why he wasn't on Insta and FB. He avoided it. Just said, yes, Im not on FB.

Said his wife died. I am a widower with one daughter, I lost my lovely wife five years and some months ago." Well thank god we had a daughter before she died."

Wow. The thing is, I really did loose my husband so this was all kinda weird. When I asked him why he requested to connect with me he never replied.

He gave me this Hangout email address after he asked me to install Hangouts here:

martinoalex09@gmail.com

Was actually very persistent about it. Asked me to download the app right now. As he didn't want to continue the discussion via LinkedIn as we would miss each other because we were both busy with work.

Very flattering, God spirited talk, handsome pic and just too much too soon. He said he would talk to me tomorrow. Should be interesting to see what he does next but I'm onto all this. Thanks for the insight. xo

All these stories - where do they come up with them. A Harvard graduate out on the ocean, and his child in Canada and he lives in Texas and he needs your assistance. I dont see a Harvard man in this mess, unless he is a con man or lost it all or has many college bills he hasnt paid.

Ladies a decent man will take out a life insurance policy for him, his wife and his
family. Its always the wife who passed on. We desire real love in our lives and we will believe anything. We cant blame them 100% for this as we let our guards down.

Moms supposedly teach their children to not
talk to strangers. Here we are breaking the rules we created. Woman desiring love from a true man, has the kind Heart of a child, and she will believe. It hurts to ponder on this scammer thing. They are liars, using lies to steal, and they dont care who gets hurt as long as they get the money.

This New Year lets decide to go back to the rule of dont talk to strangers. They wear Masks and they Hide and Deceive to Steal.

If you do talk to strangers have a plan to make sure youre strong enough to fight within what you must face. Because:

Its Humiliating, Degrading, Changes Your
Outlook on Everything. You Question yourself, how could I have ever gotten involved. They use Psychology it true.

Dont talk to strangers.

You're talking to males and females who manipulate and control you. Business Associates use these tactics to get wealthy off others hard work. Nigerians are crammed 30 in a small room lying to you then pass you over to the next thief. How God must repent of creating mankind.

This guy contacted me through Facebook and immediately asked me if I had a Google hangouts account. I refused to open an account so he convinced to communicate through Viber which is similar to WhatsApp. He told me he is working on a rig in Dublin, his wife died 5 years ago and he has a 12 years old son at a boarding school and a school nanny takes care of his son. He told me that his contract ends in 2 months and he wants to come to the US to meet me.

He told me his son's birthday is in February but he cant send him money because his account is frozen so he asked me to send money to pay for his son to have a small birthday celebration. He ask me to send the money through moneygram or western union.

He asked to send $800 and I told him I was not sending money. He kept begging to send for his son some money for his birthday party so i agreed but i never sent him the money and i provided him with an altered western union receipt.

He said the nanny couldn't pick up the money. I stick to my story that I sent the money. He wasn't too happy but i think he believed me. Then all of the sudden there is a crisis at the rig and he is asking me to help him, this is when I decided to block him off and delete the account.

I knew he was a scammer from the beginning but i wanted to see how long it will take him to ask for money.

Your mother is now involved in money laundering. That is a Federal Offense. Now he has her account information and the money he deposited in that account was taken from another gullible woman. Once she transfers it out, she has committed money laundering.

You had better contact a lawyer as soon as possible or the FTC or the FBI or Interpol. She could get in a great deal of trouble. He, on the other hand, will never be found. Nor will the account that the money is going into.

Scammer goes by the name Tyler Woodgate. Says he lives in Texas but is on a rig in Venezuela. He is a romeo and says all the right things to make you believe you are his queen. Wines and dines you on the phone and makes you believe he will get off the rig and come visit you, but then has an excuse and never does.

Pretends he is worried about your health and your family and wants you to eat properly and rest. He wants you to believe he's going to be back in Texas and wants to marry and buy a big fancy house. Says he has lots of money, but yet he seemingly has no access to it. He says he will take care of you and your kids and will ask how they are. After a time he will ask you for money through things like Itune cards.

He will promise to send you money back. He is like everyone else on here -- a scammer. Lost his wife, has no family, went to boarding school. Religious. The same sad story with just a slightly different twist as everyone else is reporting.

Do not fall prey to him. Do your homework and google "oil rig romance scams" or "oil rig dating scam" You will find literally THOUSANDS of women who report almost identical stories who have fallen victim to these people and lost thousands to them.

DO NOT buy them iTunes cards, or phones or give them your bank information because you will NOT get your money back and you will never meet them. They DO NOT LOVE YOU and they prey on women.

Please stand up for yourself and stop communication with them. Do it for yourself and for your family! Do NOT let these criminals take from you what you have worked for. They will destroy you emotionally and financially. You are stronger than they are.

Ladies gentlemen if they are telling your heart what it desires, he is scammer. He will destroy your life. He loves what you have to offer in money. Its a script they all abide by.

With Bitcoin I found out first hand how it works
as you buy any type gift card, steam has become popular and they go online and they have a Bitcoin Wallet, or their Accountant has the
gift card converted into Bitcoins. I think bitcoin is dangerous but its the newbie.

Do not fall for this. It will take you farther than you want to go, and keep you longer than you desire to stay. Result is your broken heart and
bank account that will not easily repair itself. He is living it up in Nigerian bars, driving a fancy car.

Got this one from a dating site. They are rampant on these sites. Thank the Lord that I have a pretty strong intuition but admit that with all of the flattery, it was hard to hear my gut. But in the end I did. This went on for less than a week but in that time his persistent attention and flattery got me to open up to him.

I saw this site after finally paying attention to my gut instinct AND after googling him and nothing came up. Ladies EVERYONE is searchable - especially if they say they OWN the company.

Widower from Texas with one daughter on a rig off of Alaska. Looking for that special woman who would "love him for him". What got my attention - after the first day of disaster and needs someone to go to shore and deposit into a bitcoin machine - was that he kept asking about my worth. What kind of work I do, do I own or rent my home, what do I drive, etc. And then his inconsistency in his story. I started falling for it, and it scared me that I was doing that with a complete stranger.

He didn't ask for money, but it was something that he said about "bitcoin" that made my BS meter pay attention. Nobody that I know of pays for ANYTHING that is legal with bitcoin. They are out there and they are pretty good at it.

Pay attention to you gut instinct and the inconsistency that will surely arise because they haven't thought their story through that well. Ask LOTS of questions about their childhood and oh yeah, the dead parents too. And honestly, that kind of flattery isn't ever real, and we know it. Guard you money and your hearts.

Good luck!

Hello everyone,, I was contacted by a Peter Larsson, free lance contractor and engineer specialized in drilling. He is said to have lived in Cardiff, UK for a long time, married for 23 years and father of a 17 year old daughter named Nicole?

After being cheated by his wife with his best friend, he moved to Geneva, CH. And has been working on an oil rig off Gibraltar since October 2019. Due to a machine failure, he had to postpone our first meeting, and at the same time asked me for 26,000 euros, since he had not been able to activate his online account since he had lived in Geneva and, therefore, not able to pay the bill.

I immediately broke the contact without paying a cent. He had sent me an estimate, but none of the information given there was correct.

Have any of you heard of him?

WOW!They sure ARE! I get invited to "Meetup" groups on The Web. Through them I have been hit on twice by guys using their site. This last one goes by "Brown" and says he lives in Torrance, CA.

His full name is Davidson Brown Scott, e-mail: davidsonbrown50@gmail.

Photo on Meetup groups shows nice looking younger looking man with young red-headed child. He wanted me to go to Hangouts right away. No I won't. When writing is poor, word usage not the best, and photos look too good to be true, THINK NIGERIAN SCAMMER!

Maxwell Elliot
by: Biggles777

Hello

"Have you ever had the same situation ?
Please, let me know."

Yes I have been in that situation more than once and it is more common than people think. There are a lot of scams that ask you to "pretend" to be their spouse.

Walk away and do not do anything he asks.

They'll probably ask you for some form of verification and it will most likely be in the form of a letter from you stating you are their spouse. They'll then use that in another scam and you unwittingly are providing them your identity and references.

You said he has offered to send you money, don't give him any of your financial details as the money most likely won't be his. This is usually the first step in making you a mule or someone they use to launder money.

Check the emails as it will not be the real Shell Oil Company. They are most likely Gmail accounts or a domain Shell have no relation too. Finally, Shell Oil would never ask anyone to do what he is asking of you.

My advice. Stop all communications, block and report.

Won a project to build in Cyprus and then his machines broke, his bank account was frozen, he needed funds as he called then to fly to Bermuda to unlock his offshore bank account, his credit card was maxed out so he couldn’t use that and he had to sell his watch and his translator and apparently raised money against his home to raise some of the funds needed and do it goes on.

Oh and amongst all of this his mum died quite out of the blue, he was jailed for not paying his workers and needed bail money.

This first guy was on his way home. Had to go to
a place in Europe to sign a contact he had just finished. He said i will make you my next of kin. The purpose was to make sure his money was safe. He left and on the way to the airport he was in an accident. He was coming to unite but it never happened. A Dr texts he is in a coma and needs money for surgery.

They tricked me into thinking money was in his account so i would pay his so called hospital bills which went on for months ladies.

Beware. Then the next of kin must check his account because he was in another country. And guess what - then months later nothing in that
Account. Another ploy. I see some things
differently now.

Its organized crime for sure but, the play book is in stages for what is to take place next so it must be crucial so to get to us emotionally.

Well, I was almost scammed last week by a guy named Jose Walters. Josewalters500@gmail.com. He said he was from Italy and currently living in Alabama. He said he owned an underwater welding company that works with Transocean. He is widowed with a 13 year old daughter.

That seemed strange to me cause he said he was 66. He was over 50 when he was a father. Everything was going ok until he asked me to help him get access to a steam wallet card. I looked into it and found it to be used by scammers. When I asked him about it he got mad and thus I blocked him.

by: Anonymous

Wow, where do I begin. My story is like a lot of the others I’ve read on here. I met him on Instagram. We messaged on there for a bit & then he suggested moving over to Hangouts. He said he was a supervisor on an oil rig in Norway. He works for Shell Oil company.

He asked for my email address but did not give me his. We began talking on Hangouts & within a day or two started professing how we are meant to be together forever. I should have ran at that point. He said his parents died leaving him alone at a young age. That it was God that got him to where he is today. He also said he was a widower, that his wife died 7 years ago leaving him broken hearted with a young daughter. She is supposedly going to boarding school here in the US.

He claims to be from Cary, North Carolina. He seemed to have very broken English when he would write to me. I asked him about it and he said he was of Danish descent & that he has dual citizenship both there & here in America. He said he was 62 and by pictures on Instagram & one he sent to me, he appeared to be very wealthy.

As the days went by his messages became more & more romantic calling me baby. He was beginning to steal my heart. Then yesterday, bam, he hit me up for money. He claimed that he needed minutes to complete a project he was told to work on there at work. Wanted me to send a $100 Amazon card so he could do that.

I told him I didn’t have the money to send him & he became a little frustrated but said he understood. That was just the tip of the iceberg I’m afraid. If I had sent the money, who knows what the next request would have been. I asked him if there was anyone else he could get the money from & he said he didn’t make friends easily & there was no one. That was why he was asking me. After I refused, he did not respond back again. I am so glad I was strong enough to say no.

He did call me once through an audio chat on Hangouts. He said we couldn’t do video because of rules on the oil rig. He had a very thick accent when I spoke to him which was funny because he said he had been in the States for 40 years. I have tried to google him but have so little information on him that I couldn’t find anything. I don’t have his email address, phone number or any other good identifying information.

I was a fool & told him lots of personal information while we were talking back & forth. He wasn’t as forthcoming with stuff about himself. I am so afraid of what he can do with this information.

I want to warm others on Instagram not to respond to him to keep them from being his next victim but I don’t know how to go about doing that. I have had so many other chat requests from men, but I just delete them. I will not make this same mistake again.

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Michael John Thomas/ Michael John Lucas claiming to be from Malta
by: Anonymous

The man I was speaking with used two names lol Michael John Lucas and Michael John Thomas, lol of course when I busted him he blew it off. He claims to be 59 years old from Malta, working on an oil rig in Dubai. Gives a DOB 2/8/60. Claims he has no family or friends, except one named Thomas that he works with on the Oil rig.

Claims to be an underwater diver. Claims to have one daughter named Olivia which goes to a boarding school in Rome, Italy. Her mother lives in Mexico.

Promised me the world, the stars to be moon. Sent songs, poems etc. Claiming he can't take too many photos and was " breaking the law" with sending photos, also he couldn't call because of explosives on the rig.

He was going to leave his country to come "sweep me away and take care of me in every way" He uses a gmail account of Michaelsvs...@gmail with numbers, sorry I can't remember numbers and can't seem to retrieve that information.

When I asked for pics of ID he said the contract people have all the passports. He claimed he has put all his life savings into this contract and he was in charge "the Boss" owned the contract.
Poof no contact for three days and then all of a sudden.... OMG major emergency from a Bad storm. Blah blah blah.

Then It came to" OMG BABY I'M FREEZING " I need to get electric jackets and electric blankets for myself and the guys," I need $4000.00 to finish working here to get to you. Even sent photos and videos of a "co-worker" that gashed his head wide open, and some videos of "men on deck, getting washed into the equipment from crazy waves.
All of a sudden because he " urgently needed $4000.00 he could call me and blow up calling me through hangouts.

I called him out and he still tried to try to romance me and blah blah blah. I continued chatting with him, in Hope's of saving another woman that may not see so many RED FLAGS. I Called him out on his red flags as they came up, all for more excuses and he would blow them off or all of a sudden "I don't understand "

WRONG LOL, NOT FROM THIS WOMEN.

Hello. I am going to add to what OneThirdCultureKid said about the Google Hangouts App. She said,

"In addition, I pointed out that Hangouts is a Google app, so I'm thinking that no conversation on it is private."

I'd like to add more about why this App is so favored by the criminals. Avoid what I raise.

First as OTCK said, yes it is not private, Google can see anything they want. At any time. I see you all say you block the criminal. That is the Chat feature, the email can only be marked as SPAM. If you are going to choose to block, the option to report the other user is given. Select that option when you block and the last 10 messages are flagged to Google. So make them count.

The criminals are good at avoiding you finding out their emails. I'm currently on a hotbed for them and I have noticed they all ask for you to provide yours. They DO NOT GIVE theirs. If you give yours as they ask, they don't email you, they send a chat invite only and the App allows them to hide their address from you. Totally.

So they know yours and you don't know their's

Some go further and there are two more Apps they can get which prevents even Google from seeing all that is written in some cases.

The first App is "007" and that makes the App more private. If you see a Gmail address using 007 just stop communicating with it, they're hiding something from not just you.

The second App is Privatemailing. Name says it all and it is even more discreet. Google see less.

So the best Gmail account you'll see is one with both those Apps and it has 3 encryption levels. You just can't touch it. It belongs to a fake Alex Hughes already named in this thread and he is a Nigerian criminal living in the USA and London. The Metropolitan police have his London address.

The App address is privatemailing007@gmail.com

So if you see a variation of either of those two Apps in a Gmail Hangouts address just walk away as who you are talking is paying to hide from Google and anyone they are communicating with.

He said his name was Dennis Mitcham, CEO of a subcontracting company called Demitch Energy. He had stolen pictures from IG account of an Italian performer named Gino Rivieccio, which I discovered through Pimeyes.

After calling him out, all Linked-In and company website info disappeared. Would love to hear from anyone else who may have been fooled by him. I certainly was!

Training Material for Scammers

I follow these posts consistently, as I fell victim (financially and emotionally) to one of these scams. In the midst of our "romance," he sent me some music, as well as a book, from Amazon. I wondered at the time the reason for the book and understand it clearly now.

It was a book on how to manipulate people (his 'training manual!). Of course, he said he thought I'd be interested when I questioned him about it. It took me a little longer to figure all this out.

I truly believe we are not fools for falling for these scams the first time because most of us are trusting people. As has been said here before, they are predators who master the art of conning us into trusting them.

Gray Francis
by: Divorcee, 36, from Singapore

Beware of this animal who calls himself Gray Francis from Austin, Texas.

Email: grayfrancis7777@gmail.com

The moment he asked me for money, I googled for his name and email address but couldn't find any trace. So I came across Watch For Scams and realized he's fake. There is no such person.

Met him on Words with Friends. He said his colleague introduced this app to him recently. He plays with you on a daily basis but replies are very slow. He started a conversation in the chat function first and after that forced me to download the chat app Hangout which is a very outdated chat app. Introduces himself as Gray Francis aged 55, working as Rig Engineer and is a boss of Subcontractors, takes private contracts to maintain oil rigs.

He was posted to an oil rig in Puerto Rico for the past 2 months. He asked if I was comfortable with someone way older. He has a son who is 11 years old. His name is Jaime and he claims he misses his son. His son was looked after by a caregiver in Austin, Texas. A few days later, he didn't send any msgs and when he is back in Hangouts, he said there was a power outage. After that, he said I had to pause my contract because of the earthquake that occurred here in Puerto Rico. I went on to Google and true enough there was really an earthquake in Puerto Rico at that time. There was once I forgot that he 'stop works' on the rig and he was unhappy that I forget things easily. I'm like WOW!

He has all the nicest things to say to you and makes you flattered each time. I was just so curious about where he gets all the right sentiments and I googled again and found the exact same sentences in Pinterest!!?? He even said "I’m sorry if I compliment you too much but that’s my true feelings towards you baby"

Then came the day when he said "I’m having a hard time at work today. You know we ought to go down to the ring today to begin work. We continued our drilling today but just after the boy finishes setting up the machine as we were about to begin work, I discovered that one of the main machines had developed a fault. So work had to pause and I requested for a technician who could fix the machine, he came, after running some test on the machine he discovered that some part of the machine was broken due to the last earthquake. I’ve been down since then, I’m not happy about it. I and the technician talk and he said in order for the machine to be fixed, I need to buy the required parts of the machine that is faulty. It needs to be replaced with a new one. I already made contact with the people who are suppliers of the machine parts and he told me it would cost me $12,500.00 and I really don’t have that much money left with me at the moment. All I have is $9800 left with me cause I have spent so much for the mobilizing of my team workers here both air fair. I don’t think it’s worth buying a new one since it can be fixed. That is what has been bothering me out here and I don’t know how to go about with that at the moment. I won’t be getting paid till when the contract is done halfway! I just need a few bucks left now so I can complete the deposit and have them bring the part we need and the technician will start working on it, baby. Everything is really not fine because I have not been able to get the balance of the money so I can make an order for the machine parts that are faulty and I’m really not happy about this because it’s delaying my job on here" When I ask him to try getting help from other business/ friends since he said he was the BOSS and this is what he replied "I don’t keep friends but I already spoke with a business partner and he told me that he already spent much on his personal issues and his family during the festive period, so he said he can’t afford to help me at the moment. I had to understand him because the year is just beginning and most people have spent much during Christmas, so I had to see to his reasons. God kept me and my workers safe, all that is bothering me is just how to get this fucking machine fixed up and then we start with production because all this is a delay to my contract on here. I really wished you could be of any help to me at the moment baby. I only need about $2700 to complete the deposit for the part is the machine I need to buy because I still have some money with me out here but not enough to buy the machine parts. I’m really in a f...king situation at this very moment."

So after all these I just knew he's fake because if he's a boss, he would not even have financial difficulty for such a small oil rig problem like he should prepare himself for the worst before getting a contract on the rig, like a recovery/ back-up plan if a disaster happens.

I was disappointed in myself for believing he is real in the first place but then I'm glad I did all the googling and stuff to realize all these are just a scam and I'm thankful to God, for making me broke at the right time. :)

Beware
by: Anonymous

Beware of a man who has a thick accent but has a nasal drip problem. He also plays with a hinge or something metallic while talking to you. He asks for Specific things to make you think he works on an oil rig like electric blankets or rain jackets.

He likes to know your plans for the day and gets upset when questioned. Ask him for his IP address. If it starts with 197 he is in Nigeria. Bitcoin or Western Union are his favorite means of cash besides ITunes or gift cards. Pump gone bad, needs money to get it fixed, oil is being transferred to China and he needs cash for clearance.

I think they may have a ring in the US. He claimed he was on a rig but you could hear police cars go by or he was going to jump in the river (not the ocean). Could hear people chatting and squeaky doors opening or alarms going off. Also they switch up people to take over.

Do not believe that you are the only one as they talk to multiple people. Pictures are not them and names are not either.

Kevin or Kelvin Mory
by: Biggles777

Hello. Another one on Words With Friends. I must say I would not want to be a woman on that game. They are rampant! So am I.

On WWF he is Kevin Mory and he approaches you with the same story as they all do. Says he works for Signal Hill Oil and Gas on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

He wants to tell you what to do and how you do it. No I didn't let him brow beat me and he easily gets angry and abusive. He gets it back from me and does not like it.

Said his son was in a "building house" so three times I asked and he was adamant. I finally said don't you mean Boarding School? After a long pause he replied with oh yes a computer error"

When you go to Hangouts he becomes Kelvin not Kevin. Two images are sent of an innocent man so I confront him and he blocks.

Who is Jerry Walters [another scammer name] a 56 year old man from the USA and why are you sending me photos of him?

IP Address in Ghana OMG you are one of those African scammers

ORPHANAGE SCAM 2013-2014
by: Anonymous

Read about scammer Miike Billington and he and
his wife had no children, wife died and he was sick. Because no children it was his wife's
desire to support orphans. He was asking for lots of money to keep his LATE wife's dream alive.

Read a post here seems the scam is still circulating. They dont seem to change, death wife, 2 kids, machine broke. Scam single women. If they have family those things they use to scam surely will come upon them. It will hurt
when it does. Using kids with no parents is
Low.

EVERYONE PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE EVIL AND DONT FALL FOR THE TRICKERY.

They are organized groups of criminals harassing
and stalking you to steal. Evil will catch up to them with interest.

Please Send Nothing. Also Read that Nigerians were friending church people and ask to send them bibles which they sold and kept the
Money.

If he asks for ANYYHING HE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF YOU. If these are his typical letters he is trying to CONVINCE YOU TO GIVE INTO HIM. Sounds exactly like the guy ive dealt with. Especially these statements.
Ive heard listen to Your MIND. BEWARE. AND THAT: I AM NOT THAT KIND OF MAN. Sounds like the guy who is salt pepper hair and way old enough to know better.

Guys give detailed descriptions of them. Hair color, smile, glasses, eyes and color. I dealt with handsome men but be sure most are not current pics. Ones that you are attracted to.

Expose names used and phone and email. Pic if you can post. Accent. They work together so pay attention and report them.

If you waste time tracking down the real person
Dont bother as they cannot do a thing. If they
have a spouse it torments their relationship.

Just Report to Authorities your information. They are experts and they can handle things
properly.

Just be safe pay attention

BLOCK AND REPORT.

Harry Larson and Paul Houston
by: Biggles777

Hello. If you're on Words with friends avoid one Harry Larson. Part of a group of five criminals and he is the point man.

First he contacts you telling his story all the usual from Norway, dead wife and one child. Speaks of career with major oil companies such as BP. Shell and Exxon before moving to Texas as an oil rig contractor for KDPD.

This man throws it all at you fast

Then asks "So what exactly are you looking for here?"

Response: "This is a game not a dating app"

He persists and starts the push for Hangouts. At the same time two others Bob and John become friends and all start talking not playing the game.

Okay you submit to Harry and move to Hangouts and his first words are "Sweetheart I feel so close to you" and an exchange driven by him then takes place, at no point is any desire or interest shown in him and he goes straight to the money. Edited chat transcript, I play.

Hello that sounds interesting Harry

Harry Larson (harrylarson45@gmail.com)

Harry Larson (harrylarson45@gmail.com)
What does that meab
Mean
Please snap a picture of the slip

That is the number to collect the money. I am going to lunch and will email the receipt after

I'm not sending a dollar and that is a fake MTCN Number. I block him on the Hangouts chat feature.

Then the emails titled "Tears" start arriving and I verbal him as a mature woman would but he sends emails of love similar to those posted here recently by others. I ignore all.

Then an email arrives from Paul Houston stating he is the Custodian ad mentioned by Harry and that Harry contributes $2000 a month. Three images are included and it is clearly a genuine Texan children charity they are claiming to be. I wait and call the charity, they have no idea who I am talking about and state they never take Western union payments. They ask and are given all the details I am giving here.

I block him on Hangouts too. Then back to Words With Friends and block Harry. Bob and John block you on the game and in comes Kevin with no story just the same question as Harry

"What exactly are you looking for here?"

All this took them a couple of hours and the local time in Texas was about 3 to 4 am so no way is anything going to be open. I checked with the charity during regular office hours

Oil Rigger, ocean welder for Exxon Moblle

I ran across this same scammer. Said he spoke with an accent for he was from Liverpool. Living and working in Florida. His wife died leaving behind a daughter age 11. Immediately, he says he loves me and wants to marry me. I blocked him immediately. I did not give him a chance to ask for money. He spoke of God and had a uplifting attitude. So before I started this conversation with him, I googled oil rig scammers on google and it was here where I found all I needed to know about this man.

He likely uses many names but the description was too similar to others. Where this man found me was I had joined a FBI website club where I complained that I was already a victim of scammers and when I contacted the FBI, I got 4 FAKE
This is where I ran across this man. I am private on facebook and He had a email address that I have never used, nor was it associated with my facebook account.

Scammers of aerosmith
by: Anonymous

You are correct, if someone asks you to go to hangouts to chat, it is a huge mistake. It was a very low time in my life, very lonely. I joined a unknowingly "FAKE" Aerosmith club. I never knew there was a exact duplicate AEROFORCEONE, fan club.

I had never joined any fan club before nor had I ever been on line looking for a friend. Afterwards, in a manner of days, (what I know now to be a fake) Steven Tyler and Joe Perry sends me a text message, said they had reviewed my profile and wanted to welcome me to Aerosmith. A very long story short, later after I lost a 'lot of money to them, I found they were from Nigeria. I ruined my life for scammers that have no conscience.

I lost all of my money to Steventallarico01@gmail.com and Steventyler066@gmail.com

Am certain they go by all sorts of gmail accounts. If you ever run across them, they are pure evil

John Mahanay - Independent Contractor (NOT!)
by: Anonymous

I'm glad I found this site! Has anyone heard of JOHN MAHANAY? I'm embarrassed to say this; however, I almost got taken for $4,000 by a man who claims to live in the same city I do and whose profile caught my eye on Match.com. I thought I found my "Prince Charming!"

Obviously, the interest was mutual and we began a "texting" relationship because he was leaving for London to fulfill a contract he was awarded by British Petroleum so we could not meet until he completed the BIG "project" he was just awarded. For the next 30 days, he kept in constant contact with me by texting with all the "RIGHT" comments without going into detail.

He sent me a picture of himself from London and, of course, he was even more handsome than the picture of him in his profile although they were a match. Also, he claimed to be a widower with one child; a 19 year old daughter. Just this week and after a month of texting, he asked me if I would wire transfer $4,000 because he became short due to damage to one of the turbines he was required to deliver to the States.

I was shocked; however, I had fallen for him and was initially "crazy" enough to consider his request. I eventually came to my senses after more questioning him about his situation. After all is said and done, I followed my instinct and immediately ended the conversation with him and without wiring any money.

Please -- Ladies -- BEWARE -- I think I'm fairly intelligent; however, these scammers are smooth talkers and handsome and prey on women via the various dating web sites and I thank goodness that I didn't give him any of my information and ended further contact with him. I anonymously and immediately contacted Match.com about his profile so he doesn't try striking again!

I agree with you because I've been to Hangouts a couple of times and I can tell you all that it's so not worth it to have that app. These scammers go back to the sites we use and accuse us of thinking the worst of them if we don't send them money.

Of course we do! They're scammers, for crying out loud! Pardon my use of the exclamation mark, but I can't stress this point enough: Don't send them any money!

In addition, I pointed out that Hangouts is a Google app, so I'm thinking that no conversation on it is private.

I wrote a comment a few days ago and didn’t see it posted yet. I just wanted to tell you to beware of DirkBunnell or Derrick Bunnell. I really was convinced he was real and we talked a lot about our families. He was stuck in South Africa after being arrested for money laundering because when he got paid from the company he had cash.

If you have been doing business in another country you better know their rules! Then he was sick and then coming home then detained again and couldn’t leave unless he took the rest of contract of 250,000. He wanted me to give all my info to receive the money as his next of kin.

Wrong didn’t do it. Always needed or wanted money for food and toiletries. He would cry on the phone that he had to get out of there. Somehow the attorney always got to paperwork needed to be signed and just send money and he will be home by Friday and that was Dec 7 he didn’t make it.

So a few hundred were sent and my heart torn but I can recover.

He was deployed to Afghanistan and after four months when we were writing he started to beg money from me. He wanted me to help him get out from war and wanted from me nearly 13000 USD.

He invented a false email address to the UN and asked for money. I didnt believe him and I started searching him on the internet. Afterwards I found out it was a fraud. And the real person is kokeyepes. His email adres is Willowmason104@gmail.com and he is active on hangouts to as Willow M Yepes.

And I would add that he pretended to love me and wanted to marry me. Im sending you a message to prove he was asking for money. He said his wife passed away in a short illness and he would like to start a new family with me. He sent me so many picture of Kokeyepes on my hangouts.

Hello

Andrea Zarcsikova
To acknowledge the receipt of a leave application as requested by you, in accordance to granting sergeant Willow mason who holds a profound position in the US security and military intelligence a deployment cub and vacation for a period of three months....
To grant an official approval on this note, flight ticket on security charge,approval letter and three months vacation purchase payment is to be paid.
Which all accumulates the total sum of 12886.3USD on the payment of this bill, your fiancé will be officially approved by the United Nations vacation unit(UNVU),to be relief off duty for the stipulated period of time.
The mandated payment under the military constitution is to be made via the international bitcoin Ewallet for proper confirmation and immediate processing of the leave application after payment if possible....

His instagram profile was Willow.M.Yepes(@812willowmason but maybe he deleted it before he started to beg from me money on his hangouts. He is active on Willow M yepes account. I have never met with this fraud because Im from Slovakia. I just wanted to warm other women like me. I hope they catch him and will get what he deserves.

Greg Albert is his name

I was approached on a meditation app by a person calling themselves Greg Albert. They seemed quite nice and caring. Always worried about my health and welfare. They stated their wife died years before and "has" a daughter in boarding school. Sent pictures of the so called "rig" and even a diving picture.

Within 2 days "he" claimed to love me. I said whoa back off. The red flag went up. He couldn't do video calls, it wasn't allowed. He kept asking me the time of day it was, where I live. I'd ask a pointed question, because I had a feeling, and it would take up to half a hour for a response.

He would be well spoken and then all of a sudden couldn't spell a common word. I used an app and did a background check. There was no such person matching his description. The phone was a burner that happened to be purchased in the U.S. but no other history.

Be forewarned. They can be very charming.

The one I spoke to said the same thing. "Good Morning (honey, sweetie, my love). How are you doing? Hope you Slept well.

It is repetitive and in their computers or phones. They say it to ALL the women they talk to.

Some other catch phrases: Missing you like crazy. Have you eaten? Don't stress yourself. Where are you and what are you up to.

They sound like the same person!

All pathological liars because they do not want to work.

The unemployment rate in Nigeria is high for sure. But there are jobs to be had.

I have a friend that was chatting with one from Lagos (he actually revealed himself). He was 24 and did work at a job in a hotel.

So, some of them do have jobs to fall back on. Some would rather steal from women.

Nevertheless, they are ALL ruthless.

Be very aware. Not only ruthless, but soulless and criminals as well.

And do not ever think yours is the only true one. Even if they do reveal. Mine eventually revealed himself with photos and live videos. A Nigerian man of 38.

Never got money from me and never will.

Yes, I have photos(four). Only one apparently showed up in searching. It is on Pimeyes on a foreign language Web site (97% certain). Contact me on Facebook and I will send them to you. He seems like an experienced scammer except that his spelling, etc.could be better!

My Goodness be so careful as I have heard many of the same heart breaking words. This guy does not love you he is on the way to your bank account and you will never see him. Please block him. Look for your soul mate in your town, someone you can look at face to face. There are no honest guys on social media. They are romancing you with words only to destroy your life and take all they can get and when they begin they work so fast you will not know what has happened to you.

Block them and move on.

It happened to me
by: Anonymous

I live in Italy. A few days ago a man contacted me. He said he was a marine engineer who lost his wife by a cancer 4 years ago and has a daughter that studies in the UK. The same day he said I was the woman of his life and that he loved me!

Since I didn't trust a man who talked about those emotions after a few days I asked a lot of questions he never answered. He asked me to have contacts on hangout. I'm not texting with him anymore.

His name was Antonio Lucas.

Letter from Jordan Christopher
by: Anonymous

Below is a letter I received that I actually fell for. My bad mistake.

Good morning my angel, how are you and how was your night?, My angel,You have rekindled the flame called love in me. You have given me one more reason to look forward to tomorrow. Now, you are a significant part of my life and I look forward to the day when we can make it permanent. I love you so much. I love you for your kindness, for your caring and giving nature, for your beauty - both inner and outer, and most of all I love you because you are you. The fact that you show me who you really are and not what you think I may want. Sweetie, let
this letter be a testament to my true feelings for you. The whole
world can see and know how I feel for you. I love you. I want to start
off by telling you how madly, truly and deeply I am in love with you.
I love you so very much, with all my heart and soul, always, forever
and ever! Having you in my life is truly a blessing. You bring so much
happiness into my life and so much love into my heart! I do not know
if what am telling you now is enough but I want you to know it each
and every day. And with every moment, my love for you grows stronger and deeper.Honey, I never knew I would be this happy. But you know what... it is the greatest feeling in the world to be content and
might I say, I am very, very content with you and only you. No one
else can make me feel the way you make me feel. Your caress, your
kiss, your touch, your words, your understanding ways, your everything
means the world to me and it can not and will not be replaced.Sometimes I truly feel like I get on your last nerve but despite it all, we are still together. And that is what is most important. And we will always be together because we will always have this amazing love for each other. I promise that to you. We have been through the good and the bad in life but the good times definitely makes up for the bad times. And I know I am speaking for both of us when I say that. So my angel, let's make some real good times and enjoy each and every moment will have together and from what i said, I truly known that you are my one and only, my partner for life, my best friend, my lover, my soulmate, and i wi love you forever and ever...

Just think that I should share "Tony Wilson's" e-mail which I just recently received. He's writing the same "bs" even though I said I would never send him one cent. LOL

I really now believe that he is a professional scammer. He literally almost deceived me, but not quite! However, the Bible says "all things work together for good for believers". My language now is much more warm and loving which is a GREAT THING!

His email is: wilsontony386@gmail.com

Thank you for sharing that letter...
by: Anonymous

The lengths they will go to.

Just change the words honest to dishonest and truth to lies it may be more accurate.

Religious women, they will use Bible Verses to show how much they love God and you. My ex girlfriend was told about how thankful the man was to God for putting her in his life. He was thankful up to the last time she sent him money.

I have read this same letter posted here on other occasions. They run a boiler room and share information. When you are done with one, another will contact you. These evil people keep records on what works with you and what will not.

Beware, if your friends and relatives, who love you alerted you that these people are no good, the next person who falls in love with you right away will insist - do not tell anyone about him. Your loving people in your life are just jealous. Sound familiar to anyone?

I have no dog in this fight. I am in Whittier Ca and looking for locals. I care about all women. Even the men who have been scammed.

Thank you for reading and I hope I have helped at least one person.

Please ladies hope this helps. This is the length they will go to and he will not be getting a penny from me!!

Hey babe, I know you're probably still packing, I hope you are well? You would agree, we have been corresponding to know each other better and everything I have told you from the beginning is true and I have not lied to you. I will share with you in this letter, who I am; I will give you a chance to know me, without even having met me in person. I know that relationships are developed, we must meet, spend time together to know for sure. I think it is important that you know me, and I share with you who I am. Create a special time to read my letter. Go somewhere still and quiet or lay in your bed so you can be alone with me in spirit while reading this email. Give me this special time with you, with no distractions. Read my letter with your heart and you will hear my voice, you will hear my heart beating, you will feel my gentleness, my care, my passion, my emotion, my laughter, my joy, my positive energy.

You have no idea the limitless love I have to give, if you were made of wax, it would probably make you melt. ...I have so much to give, to someone who can fully receive it and appreciate it. I will also say, I have such a deep desire to be loved in return and I am glad you love me. It is very deep within me, such intense longing. I know we have not met yet, but my impression of you is that you would be able to love me and let that love flow out of you and not hold it back from me. I desire a relationship with you that is uninhabited, built on love and trust, comfort and security. We should feel completely safe with each other, and we can share with each other ALL things, our heart, mind, soul, body, and spirit, completely open to each other. What I feel for you and what I want from you is more than the items I'm asking you for, and please do not let my present condition make you feel I am taking advantage of you. I am not that kind of a man.

I must also tell you something that is so very important to me, I want you to always remember this; I try very hard to communicate and I put a lot of loving work into it. I have learned from experience (personal and other people), communication is extremely important! I desire this from you as well and I happy you have been that woman who is very transparent. I want to know when you are sad, if anything troubles you, I also want to know your joy and laughter, your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I want to be able to bathe in you, be consumed in who you are, the river of your soul should wash over me and bring me into deep and very deep intimacy with you. I know that communication comes in various ways; it is personal energy, body language, verbal and mental. I consider that communication is also a labor of love, if you truly love someone, you will love to communicate but it is always a choice and we always choose our actions. If you feel hurt or misunderstood or upset, your first reaction should not be to turn away from that person or to withdraw and become distant. You don't call me and you don't even answer my calls.  Let your heart soften, let the love within you soften your heart, let your first reaction be to draw to each other, to come together and talk like one. Love can truly heal all things, it is a healing balm, but it is always a choice. Love cannot heal unless you allow it, it is a choice of the will and we must always take accountability for our choices, we can never blame anyone else. I have gone through a lot in life and I know everything that happened was a big temptation for me and you. Why would you turn away from me in such times? I expected you to stand by me and showed me true love and how much you cared for me. I am not carried away by money and material things and I just want us to share everything I have and that is within me. But I believe everything in life happens for a reason. I know am not perfect but am ready to treat you the way you need to be treated.

I am a positive person and I refuse to let negativity control my life. Positive energy brings life, negative energy tears it down or destroys it. I wish to be surrounded in a positive environment as much as possible where life and love thrive in abundance and grow!!! Please don't be afraid of helping me invest so I can move forward with my contract or think negative about it. Negativity is another word for FEAR. Please think about this. How does fear affect people, does it ever produce anything good??? Of course not, fear paralyzes people, disables them, hurts them, controls them (if they let it), fear robs from people, it causes people to do things they do not want. Fear out of control brings death! Ok...enough about fear!. I believe that life is lived from the inside and out, who we are and who we want to be is what we are inside. I share with you what comes from within me. I open my heart to you, even in my letters, so that you can see into my soul the person who I am and who I want to be. I share with you something from my Heart. It is like I said last night, you have a white dress on and you clearly can see me sinking into a pool of mud but rather than you help me, you are to scared to get mud on your dress but you claim to love me. Be honest and open and ask yourself, is this right? I am on fire and you have some water to help ease the pain or even stop it but you decide to keep it to yourself and say its all you have and so you watch me burn and claim you love me still. Is this right my love? is it?

These are my thoughts, feelings, dreams, emotions, and passions. I share with you from my mind, because you need to know me. It is important you know who I am. If you desire to know who I am, then you will be able NOT to only read my words but feel them. As you read, open your heart, let go all fear and let a positive spirit of trusting me to come upon you, it will whisper the truth to your soul and you will hear its voice, it is a voice of gentleness love and compassion. These are my own words, my own thoughts, and feelings. Judge for yourself, what kind of person you think I am??? You have not met me yet in person, but what does my writing speak to you. If you listen, it will speak volumes, if you listen, it will be as if I am with you right now. I stand before you, I look into your eyes intently and with tenderness, read my words and look into my soul.

Indeed, we will meet in person very soon... Read my words, read from my Heart. Ask yourself, what kind of person I am, can you see without having met me yet??? Do these words come from a person who is beautiful inside or someone who is ugly inside??? You be the judge, you want to know me, here I am and you will know me, if your heart is open, you will know me without even seeing me. Of course, I am much more than these words, what you see now, is only the tip of an iceberg. I will be much more in person than what you are reading in my letter. I promise never to disappoint you or let you down. I will not hurt you and I promise you this and I vow with my life and let God be my witness to this vow. If I ever hurt you, let my life never be fulfilled. I love you babe and I love you with all my heart. Please help me so that our joy and happiness can be restored.


Your Man, Shaun.
I LOVE YOU

Depp Hunter Kovaćs
by: Anonymous

I am from Taiwan and work in Cambodia. I met this guy from Interpal, an I asked him if has whats app or fb messenger. Then he gave me wechat accr. So we started chatting on wechat, and he asked me to create an Instagram account, as i don't use it, so I just opened it for chatting without many photos. Here is his basic data i have for everyone who may know this guy:

Name:Depp Hunter Kovaćs
Marriage : Has divorced around Jan 2018
Children: 2 sons. 1 is 15 years old named Donald and 11 years old in named David. They study in boarding school.
Job: He works in Dover oil as director http://doveroilcompany.com IG name:Sir Depp Hunter Kovaćs WeChat ID: sirdepphunter
Skype:a3bd080bbd17c9f6
gmail:ohiodepphunter@gmail.com

You will find that what he said in his Ig look true, till he told me he got a big case in Malaysia oil company Petronas and lacked USD7000 to rent a warehouse. He said he did not request enough deposit from that company, and he has paid a shipping fee for his machines, and buying new machines, only USD23000 can rent a warehouse, but he didn't know the warehouse rental is higher than his budget, so finally his agent found one that only charged USD30000. He asked his friends as he could, and those friends are not so good, just coworkers and no one lent him money, and at the same time, Christmas and new year was coming.

Finally his ex-mother in law whose name is Lisa lent him USD1500 and a Turkish friend who lives in Miami lent him USD1300. Finally he asked me if i can lend him, and i said i only can lend him a maximum of USD1000.

I was suspicious at that moment, but still sent money by Western Union. So he still lacked USD3200, and i would want to lend him, but hesitated, and then he was angry that i called him a scammer. After a serious unhappy talking, we did not contact 1 or 2 days.

I was stupid that i felt sorry and thought i should help him pass this difficulty to complete his case, so he can get his big commission. So i lent him the USD3200, and he gave me his ex-mother in law's Bank of America account with tel No.

The account name is: Lisa L Thomas. Phone number: 1-907-3882981.

Then it seems he started his program. One day he asked me to give him my bank account, as Petronas will send him money, but his bank was blocked because when he tried to sign on from Malaysia, the bank blocked his account. Therefore, he needed my account. And i even gave him the number.

After 2 days, he said the company can't remit money to a personal account, it must be a company. So he asked them to pay cash, USD million in cash. And he insists to ship the cash to me.

I asked him to open an account to deposit in Malaysia, and he said he didn't have time and can't deposit in one time.

He used this shipping company: https://www.cargoflydelivery.com

After a couple days, i tracked his cash box that was hold on at Sihanoukville harbor (Cambodia main harbor ). Then i got mail from that company that said because this package was listed as high sensitive value, Cambodia customs requests related documents for this box. If I can't offer documents, the other way is pay USD 10500. That company said they paid half and I paid half, and need to settle down in 48hrs. They even didn't say how to pay and where. I insisted they give me local agent information and i can ask my company's shipping dept to help me, but they insisted not to give it to me.

Finally i asked them to return to sender, and they sent mail to me that is a scammer and that this package is canceled, Cambodia customs didn't want to wait and keep it there.

He was angry with me and we argued by whats app, then he blocked me, then blamed me in IG, and then also blocked me. Then he blocked me in wechat and skype.

In order to get my money back, I told him I can do my best for his parcel except money by gmail. He replied and started contact with me by Skype. Now he is still wanting me to help him with that stupid parcel for USD 5250, and that Turkish friend helped him with USD2100, hoping i can help him with the balance.

I will told him yes because when i go to the bank, I will tell the bank this account is cheating, and will request them inform the Bank of America. I will only remit USD10, but will showed him USD 3200 receipt. Hope this way I can let the bank do the investigation.

2 days ago, I just knew the phone number of his ex mother in law was fake, as she lives in Las Vegas, but that number is in Alaska.

Today he even opened webcam on skype, but not too long, just a few seconds, and when he spoke, his mouth seemed not what he said. Obviously it is also a fake video.

All he creates is like real, but actually he is a scammer. If anyone meets this guy, or a similar situation, I hope this can help you.

Why Do They Always Want Receipts?

Hi, Anonymous, I agree, except that they say stuff like, "You're the only one I can trust to help me get off an oil rig to see my children/get me out of South Africa/Nigeria/Ghana."

Scammer Busted - Mark McGillion
by: Anonymous

Picked him on POF Australia. Says he is looking for marriage. He says he’s an independent mining contractor. Away offshore in Poland for 3 months. I started chatting yesterday & today he asked if we could use what’s app. I questioned him a lot as it seemed odd he’d reply to my message at 3am.

Said it was because he’s in Poland. Replied in words in which I felt there was an accent. Bit odd for the name he’d given. Asked if he could call me. I said sure & heard there was definitely a South African or similar accent. At the same time I googled his name & found his picture in the scammer list. His what’s app comes up as a business account. I told him he is a scammer and I sent him a screen shot of his picture on google. I reported him on POF & what’s app.

I was lucky however I’m very cautious with my information & I’m not afraid to ask questions. I listen to my instincts. Took me half an hour to realise he was a scammer.

Why do They Always Want a Receipt
by: Biggles777

Hello. I'll answer that and there are a few reasons and it all depends on the criminal act you are victim of.

1: They are criminals and do not trust you

2: If it is a wire transfer it will have your address and phone number. So they will get your personal details and start stealing your identity.

Also for wire transfers they may want the MTCN or Reference number so the cash can be picked up

3: If it is a bank transfer. The sooner they can confirm the transfer is made then the sooner they can move the money from what is most likely a fake front account. They are using that account only to collect before they launder it. Chances are the money has left the account within an hour of it being deposited

4: Again, if a bank transfer your receipt will have your routing number and account details. They are mining your bank account details

4: In my last post you see they asked, that was a clear case of not trusting me

Note to Editor: Am I clear enough for you?

ED: yes thank you

To Curious re Money Sent
by: Anonymous

I initially sent money (wire transfer) through my credit union twice, no questions asked. On the third time, because I foolishly believed I was helping him get out of a bad situation in Turkey, I tried to send my remaining savings directly from my Fidelity account. They refused (thank goodness) and had their Fraud Department Head call me.

In the meantime, I had already finally succeeded with a reverse photo (Pimeyes.com, Yandex.com) search and found him to have stolen the profile of an Italian actor. Had Fidelity not stopped me, I would be in dire straights indeed. Still, his last words were, "I love you, I always will." I guess they just keep on hoping.

This is How You Send a Card For Cash
by: Biggles777

Hello. I told you about Debra Scott in a previous post with an inheritance scam from an oil rig contractor. Was hoping to get to the scam but they tested me by asking for an iTunes card.

They were good. Never answered a question and only asked them. Told me about love and didn't care what I said. Everything was on their terms. They did change story though, at first in Texas, next day without a word in London and from Alabama not Texas.

I see you all get asked for cards of some sort, so I am going to show you what to do if you do not want to pay and mess with them. I've edited out a lot of noise it only took 2 days to ask.

All the love crap dealt with on Hangouts IM

Yes baby I am fine and I think about you as well

Ooh you're so lovely babe wish you were here

I will like to have you as the man I have been dreaming of and I really want you to promise me that you will never let me down

Oh you're so special babe I promise I will never let you down babe

Thank you so much and I pray you keep to your words

I will my special one

Ok baby

What time is it over there hun?

7:40 babe you so kind

Pm ?

Yes but later now babe. I worry it must be so late for you babe

Ok it 10:24 am here

Oh okay

Can you send me a pics of you baby

Sure babe I do hope you send me a couple too

[ Pics swapped and I've changed my identity ]

Handsome

Baby I really don’t have much internet anymore can you please help me with an iTunes gift card?

Oh thank you

I don’t have much money on me I would have gotten that myself

Of course give me a minute please babe

Can you get a google play gift card?

Oh babe it's really late here. I have a US$500 iTunes card more than happy to send after the soccer

I don’t get you baby?

All the stores are closed but I have an iTunes card for US $500 I can send shortly babe

Ok dear
Can you send that now ?

[ See how greedy they are? They just expect me to stop everything and give cash. Well they're going to get it all right! ]

Thanks babe gimme a few minutes for the soccer to end and I will send baby

Ok baby

Hello baby so sorry I have the card how do you want it? Send it here?

Take pics of the front and back hun

[ I send a copy of a special USED iTunes card ]

Is it is card
A us iTunes gift card?

[ Okay they're onto me. I'm in Australia with a U.S. iTunes card ]

[ I send a copy of the front of the card ]

Yes I bought some on Sunday and flew back arrived Tuesday morning they get you things you can't get in Australia [ What crap! :) ]

Baby can you send the receipt?

I threw it out I didn't know I was going to be giving any out and I was in USA when I bought them from a store in Santa Monica [What crap!]

Ok

I don't know I told you I only signed up for this internet dating no one told me that I had to give money or cards [I'm a village idiot!]

Okay so I've survived and we both full well know what time each is in. I go to bed. While I sleep the following is sent to me.

What are you doing now baby trying to load the card

Baby the card didn’t work

[Oh it is working!]

The card has been used already baby

Are you there ?

Hello baby

Why are you not talking to me
???

I wake up to that all sent at 3 to 4 am and send a response.

Sleeping. Well the card worked when I used it. Why would I send money to a Nigerian criminal who lives in Obawole a suburb in Lagos?

Like I said it was a "special" card and it worked for me. I'm not saying anymore but if I know where they live you get the idea.

I am curious how people send money to these scammers. Do they send cash via fedex, UPS etc to people here in the USA? Means that there is a group here taking in the money. We talk about the posers who are impersonating someone else but seems like there is a bigger picture. Maybe the recipient of these funds should be brought to light. David Green, Christopher Smith, Priscilla Gonzalez, Joseph Bakare, Richard Elvis.

Do any of these ring a bell?

Did you do a reverse photo check on Yandex.com or Pimeyes.con? I had success with both, but not with other sites. Also, Facebook page Scamming scammers action is very helpful, and they will interact with you directly if you reach out to them. Sometimes it takes a lot of searching, but you will eventually find the person (and fake photo). Good luck.

Asian (Tan Tan) Oil Rig Scan
by: Anonymous

Got hit with two guys that came off the dating app TAN TAN and both claimed they were on oil rigs. They didn't get more than a couple weeks of conversation out of me because my IRL ex actually worked with oil refinery companies so I am not naive.

They used the same phrasing that many on here used. Called me babe. Asked if I ate. Wanted me to get on Whats App. I never shared any racy photos or personal details that could be used against be but my god I can't even believe this is a thing until I found this site.

Don't even bother. Just run at the mention of oil rig. One was Odin Lang and the other John or JPN on Line.

PAUL HERMANN
by: Anonymous

I met him on the dating app, HINGE in the UK. Claims he is born in Hamburg, Germany. His parents died in a fire in Germany. He moved to London with his grandmother at the age of 13. Now lives in Colchester, England. Has one son, Tony in boarding school.

Paul Hermann claims he works off shore on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. He could not video call because of his job. Phoned twice but each time a lot of static and the calls dropped. He did not sound German or British - to me Nigerian.

He texted and emailed me everyday love letters and songs. He never asked for money. I was tough with my questions but he would not give up. Another man would have left and that's another tip of knowing it's a scammer. They try to break you down emotionally first.

I have photos and wish I could share.

Scammed by rig engineer
by: Anonymous

My story is the same as so many others. He friends me on Facebook and went to messenger to talk. He said he was a religious man and his pic was handsome. He said he had duel citizenship. USA and Turkey. In two days he says he thinks he loves me. He wants so bad to get off rig to see his two children and meet me. His wife left him and took him for 450,000 dollars, but after the break up she died of cancer.

He says he wants so badly to get off the rig and get his box and come home to USA. So I was to send him money so the box would come to me and I would fax papers to his company so he gets off the rig. The box has diamonds in it and his credit card will be used to get money to pay me back.

And he trusts me so much he knows diamonds will be safe with me till we meet. I questioned him all along, and he calmed my fears with flattery.

The name he used was Seth Rolañd.

He was a perfect speaker, and could write for Hallmark! Such sweet words. Please send gift cards to my kids, I did but told him I don't have much money, and he said I'll pay you back beyond you dreams with many surprises. Well I asked to send me a picture of him now. He kept saying trust is so important in a relationship. He never would send a pic posing in a way I asked so Id know if it was him, and would match the ones I have already seen. I kept sending money, but the price got higher. Finally I said no, and I looked up scammers and saw all these stories that matched the same things he said.

My Queen, my love etc. Beware he's a sweet talker, and he still said he will give it to me. I sent these articles to him, and he denied it all, and he always will. lol

Isn't it Time?
by: Anonymous

We have all been hurt, either emotionally or financially or both. Isn't it time the regulators take some responsibility for this and at least give us a way to write off the loss on our taxes? As it is, you end up being hurt twice - once by the scammer and again by the IRS for withdrawing money to send to these guys.

There should be many more warnings/restrictions in place. Until I was hit both financially and emotionally, I had no idea this was going on. If you're not a TV watcher, there is nothing to warn you about this.

Hi, Anonymous, I also didn't send any money to scammers who claimed to love me. Two of them sent me DMs on Twitter saying pretty much the same thing to me that a scammer said to you after you refused to send him money, along the lines of "I asked you for help and you thought the worst about me.

Why would you do that?" I blocked them after reporting them afterwards two years ago. They're not worth the heartbreak.

DO NOT send them your money. Dont waste your time. Block them, report them and run. Rampant on social media, words with friends. Do not accept games with strangers. It is the start of a new year and new cycle for these losers.

Regarding Robert Adams
by: Kevin B

Very good. Robert Adams is a text book Scammer.

Other things to know.

The picture he sent was not him. He is not even Robert Adams. These false identities keep them from being caught.

You are still on a list. Your previous communications are logged and a new man will make an effort to get money, or watch out, send money to you and send it to his agent. There will be a pick up charge you will end up paying for.

If not an oil engineer who is never on an oil rig for more than 3 weeks at a time and paid by automatic deposit. (A requirement to work). You may have a military man, a foreign dignitary, etc.

Remember, you appear not to have not become emotionally involved. Read these posts. Like in school. I before E. Intelligence before Emotion.

You used your head. Not your emotions. Read the posts where men or women lost money. They were emotionally driven.

Re Robert Adams
by: Anonymous

I met this sweet talker on Words With Friends. From the beginning he said he loved me and was coming over after his contract was up in 2 months. Said he’s an independent oil rig supervisor. Widowed for 3 years. Lost his wife and one daughter to polycystic kidney disease. Has a 16 year old daughter by the name of Holly at home and disabled step sister at his large home, taken care of by a nanny.

I continually told him he can’t love me as he doesn’t know me. He always asked if I ate dinner. Then I got to noticing that all his words were rhymed like he copied it from somewhere. He also told me that his daughter’s birthday was January 10 and would I get her a game streaming card from Walmart for $200.

I told him no; I don’t have that kind of money then he said $100 would be fine. I just laughed. He was very pushy and insistent that I go get this card. I said no I don’t know her and I won’t do that and he said she was mad at me. I just said I’m sorry.

I sent him a message telling him I didn’t want to talk anymore as I wasn’t comfortable with any of the way things were going. He isn’t talking to me anymore. He sent a picture. A handsome guy but beware.

He’s just after money!

Wife died in a car accident, has a daughter Jane, age 7, living with her nanny, has a mighty house in London, is a chemical ingeneer, working on the oil-rig in Ontario high sea. He said that he sent me some gifts in a package (Diamond Courier Group company). I lost a lot of money for this package that not exist at all.

Be careful. On the photos he sent to me is a man around 47 - 49 years old, with a beard, nice blue eyes, balded and a daughter with the same blue eyes, brown hair. Sent me also a video with him and his daughter, talking to me and singing. I felt for him so much.

To be honest with you guys I work in the investment firm, but I did not smell the rat tell Dec of 2016. To make a short story you cannot trust them. I was a strong Christian and they used the Lord to get their scam.

So Ladies and gentlemen be very careful. It was the lowest point in my life when my husband of 20 years pass away. They are a very good hustler to all your weaknesses. I am still paying of what I owe being credit card and 401k.

Rig Engineer from USA working somewhere on rig off Italy Coast

Hello

This is a simple one to answer.

"Then I received an email from FBI Head office with a gmail account that money was entering the USA in Daytona but was addressed to me."

There is no way in the world that the FBI would ever use a Gmail account for official business.

Do not pay another dollar look up your local FBI Field Office, print out everything you have and all payment details. Take them into the FBI Field Office and report it.

I'm sure you'll find the FBI will not appreciate fake FBI accounts.

Contact your US Attorney General of your state where this happened. Google the address, send a registered mail with a simple letter stating what happened. Send same to the IRS. Remember these people are purposely defrauding you and doing tax evasion. If enough of us do this, there will be attention paid. And perhaps an investigation to these scams.

They are purposely targeting certain populations and by not doing anything, you are allowing them to win and continue to hurt people whom you may know or love or part of your family in addition to you.

Rig Engineer from USA working somewhere on rig off Italy Coast
by: Anonymous

I started to chat with this guy in November 2019 and he asked for money to send a package with personal documents. Same story, have no family, wife died in car crash as well as kid. He has no one left. Unfortunately I paid for the package, but more money was needed to get the package through customs. I said I have no money left.

He ended up in hospital after a accident on the sea and needed money. Unfortunately I paid money again but he needed more money for medicine. I refused.

Then I received an email from FBI Head office with a gmail account that money was entering the USA in Daytona but was addressed to me. They confiscated the suspicious package which ended up to be a suitcase and they even mention the dimensions of the suitcase in the email. I don't stay in America. The money came from Nigeria.

Can anyone relate to such a scenario and can anyone please tell me if the FBI will sent an email from a gmail account. I've looked up the name of the guy who sent the email from the FBI Head office and it turned up to be a business owner in Canada.

I've blocked the guy on gmail and hangouts, and in the beginning he used a USA cell phone number. For some or other reason the phone fell in the sea.

Be careful these guys are heartless.

Anyone Know Jeffrey Smith?
by: Anonymous

I believe someone has hacked into the real Jeffrey's profile. The pictures sent to me are of a real man I met in Ft Lauderdale, Fl in May.

HOWEVER, after reading several of the scams I noticed he talks like many other scammers: Have you eaten; Good morning baby, I miss you darling, etc. It never occurred to me he's using the terms of endearment because he has so many other women!!! (No, no money has been sent to him)

He's an engineer on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico and has a $50 million contract (actually sent me a pic of the "contract" and his Exxon ID.) It IS Jeff that I met but, again, I'm sure I'm being scammed.

I tried looking up the address he gave me in Valdosta, GA--no such person. Widowed, 4 yr old daughter, 10 yr old son being taken care of by a nannie.

Wanted to go on vacation with me and had me write a letter to Exxon. Hmmm Got a response that he was a skilled engineer and it would cost me $1100 to "release him from his duties for two weeks." Nope

Then there was an explosion and he needed a doctor. No doctor on a rig? He said he "retired" early so he can't be seen. Nope.

Then he said he had pneumonia--same thing--needed a doctor. $2100 to get off the rig. Nope.

The the pilot cost was reduced to $1600. Nope

Keeps asking if I'm a work. I repeatedly tell him 'yes, I've told you before my work hours.' I'm 71 and I do work full-time!

I'm being horrible because I'm playing him! I'll end it soon--probably tonight.

Has anyone else talked to him? Nice looking guy--white, stubbly beard, blue eyes, roundish face, balding.

I would love to hear that he's talking to someone else so I can blow it up in his face!!!

Best to all of you.

Hi Biggles, You've seen my posts about the scammers, whom I don't talk to anymore. :-) Yes, they not only claim to be widowed or divorced, with children in boarding school, and claim to be oil rig engineers, military, or doctors, they also use the same terms of endearment that every one of us has been called: Dear, honey, baby, babe, sweetie, etc. and land themselves in all kinds of trouble overseas, not to mention that they need money to get themselves out of trouble.

They also claim to live in Reykjavik, Iceland when the header photo is of New York, for example. It was when I was talking to one of them that I looked up one scammer's name and found a guy with the same name and pic and reported him on Twitter.

If you try to look them up online, you will not find them.

They do this purposely.

Try to find local men you can meet. You are wasting time and will not be satisfied by these scammers.

These guys you are sharing with hurt our chances (nice single men), of meeting women in our 45-65 age group.

I questioned him at first when he contacted and he said we were both followers of Ellen Degeneres - I did say well everyone follows her so do you contact them all?

Petroleum engineer from Texas
by: Biggles777

Hello I'll post as you ask, let's take a look.

"the guy who is messaging me intensely"

That is your first sign. He is turning on the attention and will keep going at the pace he is. Soon he will start to express feelings for you and after that love.

"He goes by Derek Foster and said he would come over here in a few weeks"

Maybe I am late, what you said about the messaging maybe he has already shown love and feelings to say he is going to visit. But be assured he has no intention of ever seeing you in person.

"the contract on the rig of the Gulf of Mexico."

Sounds good but it is not true. No one on an oil rig is on a contract. They all are employee's paid by direct deposit. If they are on a contract they are remote, not on the rig and only supply what is contracted from where the company they own would be based. Most likely Texas if the rig is in the Gulf of Mexico.

"He claims to be widowed with one son"

Read all of this thread as that is what they all say.

"but his broken English is ringing alarm bells."

Good you're alert. Speak again and it won't change you are talking to someone in Nigeria or Ghana.

"download google hangouts- an app which we don’t use over here."

That is all they know as they consider it the most secure and untraceable form of communication. If you do not use it in Ireland do not get it for "him"

If you have it, just block him and delete your app. You didn't need it until you met him so you won't need it after you drop him. Look at my last post and they clearly want me on Gmail after I decline my phone number. I declined.

They most likely called you a variation of sweetie, babe, baby, hun, honey, dear, darling or some other name right from the start. They do this so they do not confuse names as they are talking to so many others they don't want to make a mistake.

Questions To ALL Those Still Talking To Scammers
by: Biggles777

Hello Ladies me again.

I was just approached by a scammer on Zoosk and here is how it went. My real name edited out.

Hi how are you doing today and my name is precious and you? January 4, 2020

Hi I'm **** nice to meet you January 4, 2020

Nice meeting you **** how long have you been on this site and what are you here for too? January 4, 2020

I'm new here and looking but not sure how it works or what I'm after. January 4, 2020

[INSERT: Note as soon as I say new next message is to go offsite?]

I'm new here as well and I'm looking for long term relationship and i will be happy if you can give me your number so that we will chat on whatsapp and i will send you my pictures and we will keep knowing each other well? January 4, 2020

Where are you Precious? I'm careful with my number. My friend who suggested the site said he gave his number for Whatsapp to someone called Nicole and it was a scam January 4, 2020

I'm here looking for relationship and am not here for that so to know you more you need to give me your number so that we will keep knowing our self if you don't want to give me your number you can give me your gmail and i will still send you my pictures as well and i will know you well? January 4, 2020

Email sounds better thanks Precious. I don't have Gmail I use another email. You never answered my question. Where are you from? You seem nice January 4, 2020

Ok you can give me your email and am from kensington new south wales and you ? January 4, 2020

Cool I love going to Kens over there. It's a great night out. You're so lucky Precious to live so close to a place like that. Hope you enjoy it. I said you seem nice, not that I wouldn't give you my email. I don't have Gmail.January 4, 2020
Sorry Precious forgot to answer where I live. It is Point Piper so Eastern Suburbs too January 4, 2020

ok i hope you can get one and i will give yo my own so that you can mail anytime you get one ?January 4, 2020
preciousadu8977@gmail.com

No I'm not getting Gmail yet. Happy to give you my other one. Do you enjoy Kens? Hang on I'm gambling on soccer. Will give you an email soon Precious you so friendly

LONG PAUSE I think I've blown it for one of two reasons. Point Piper is the 6th most expensive suburb in the world. Can't buy a house for less than 20 million. Kens in Kensington where Precious claims to live is a notorious gay sex club.

After waiting I give in and provide an email thinking I've blown it. The reason for my wait is as KenB has said, it is coming from a boiler room in Africa. They are harvesting as many as possible and once they get their email out it is job done to them.

You there Precious? Here is my email **********@protonmail.com

I wait and soon an email appears with some text on what Precious wants and three images. They are bad. The text is a cut and paste of something they are using on all sexes it has this and I'm a man looking for a woman.

"Someone that would be ready to give so much of herself." Ah ok I'll accept it once.

"sacrifice anything she has for sake of LOVE." I said once not twice!

Over to the pictures even though from what I said in my last post here I clearly know what is going on and want to control them.

Two of the images are from a dormant French Twitter account of one Melanie Couto

The other is a picture from an album for Maren Morris. I said they were bad as their profile picture is of another woman. So from first message alone I have images of three different women and someone clearly not from Sydney. I played daft and that is what they want.

I wanted them to show their hand before me so I knew if they are really good or really bad. They are bad. This will end in tears for them.

"Nothing but soulless, heartless, manipulative LIARS."

That is a quote from the lady who first asked about this. Well I'll say I am too when it comes to talking to scammers. They have no rules so I play by none with them. Little by little some are learning the hard way that if some of my emails and images are seen it is best they avoid me.
