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.

The hardship of the oil rig
by: Anonymous

Oh! I met the wonderful Henry Coleman from Bakersfield, CA. Claimed to be a petroleum engineer working in Denmark, but was stationed in an oil rig in the north sea. Used to work for Shell but now decided to be an independent contractor and would be back home in a week, but oh no! He is having problems with his software and needs me to purchase eBay cards so that he can do the upgrades. Why eBay gift cards? Well, thats where he buys it from.

He meant to tell me that You buy highly specialized computer software from eBay. If i don't well then, he wont be able to go back home for the next month.

This was not sounding right from the start, he had weird obsession with my financial status and wanting to pay all of my debts, he wanted to be with me but because of work it was impossible. Thing is, these people are getting better and better. He has absolutely no online presence, so his name brings nothing up as well as reverse searching his pictures.

The name of his "company" is placed no where near him. His phone number tracks back to Texas and this whatsapp number tracks to another place. You are never able to talk to him or video call him because of the bad reception in the rig. And no-one else can help him only you because if he tries to buy these things they will freeze his accounts and he is not home to fix it.

Guys! Beware! If something is too good don't trust it, no one will ever ask you for money or make you do weird things. Also, inform others! I was glad that I found similar stories and avoided me from wasting my time.

Has anyone heard of a Patrick Moris? He tells me he is a self employed chemical engineer. Currently on a rig in Dubai. Supposed to be back by Thanksgiving. Asking for money. Says all the right things.

I've looked everywhere for anything on him, found nothing. I have photos, but dont know if we are allowed to post them here.

Dennis Cardoza
by: Anonymous

Dennis contacted me on Instagram and I rarely ever accept requests - he was Articulate and handsome and said he was wanting to take baptism classes and that he was meeting with missionaries. I decided to ok the request and he wanted me to use what's app and or hangout by google - I didn’t want to use either but eventually communicated via what’s app.

Several day’s in a row he told me about his parents dying when young in Switzerland and Married wife died and daughter in boarding school in Miami Florida and he was leaving the country to go to Istanbul for a contract job. He serenaded me with words and sent me ed Sheeran songs and made my head spin - needless to say he said we were to be together and he was going to come visit when he got back stateside.

I knew in my heart this was a scheme as anything that is too good to be true has to be a scheme.
I am ignoring him but ladies I know some of us are lonely and we crave human attention and want to be cared for by someone but do not fall for this!

You deserve someone real - also the religious quotes he is clearly using in my Instagram account is to gain trust.

He also sent a lot of information in Regards to the bible and Book of Mormon.

Re:Concern

Hi, Anonymous, I've never been contacted or scammed by a Jonathan Cotton, who claims to work on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, but I've read stories similar to his. There was one guy who claimed his wife died of cancer five years ago and who claims to be the father of twins, though. He claimed to be working for ExxonMobil on an oil rig in Ghana, actually.

I sent him no money when he asked me.

Living quarters on oil rigs.
by: OneThirdCultureKid

I don't know about you all, but I'm pretty sure that rooms on oil rigs do NOT look like mansions or penthouses. If any scammer sends you pics of rooms that look too fancy or luxurious, show them these pics of actual living quarters for oil rig workers.

The fact that he's on Hangouts and wants women to join him there is enough reason to report and block him. Hangouts isn't private, either, because the app developers at Google created it. Anything he says, Google watches.

He’s Nigerian, I’ve spoken to him multiple times on the phone. He is so in love with me, calls me his babe, only he wants a new IPhone.

Nope, sorry, he’s on hangouts.

Me Too!

Goes by the name Alex A. Benjamin in my case. Said he was orphaned in norway (not Norway) by a single southern lady. She saw he was "bright" and adopted him on the spot. She supposedly left him "well off"

Well, I'm a practical sort and asked a lot of questions. I was stupid enough to send $1100. But then he said he had a Certificate of Deposit for 5,000,000 pounds English, which would have been 6,437,000 and some change. The guy is slick as snot. 'I'm a one woman man" he says. He's a butthole is what he is! Alex A Benjamin or Alex Chan, God will have you answer for what you have done!

For any of you ladies who live in the UK there has been a tv programme on during the day called For Love or Money and it has stories from women who have been cruelly scammed and the names of the scammers.

The stories are the same as those posted on this site. I was one of them scammed by Walter Henz but fortunately I had this site and listened to my gut.

I sympathize with you and have often wished there was a "search" function on this site so that we might be able to find names. It took me hours to find the name of the guy (Dennis Mitcham, Demitch Energy) that tried to scam me.

I see there are more blurbs on him, but there is noway of accessing them without going through months/years of posts.

Glad you learned quickly. I got out with a very broken heart.

Ok so for the past few months I have had three guys trying to scam me. Luckily I listen to my gut and looked into if there were any scams with the military and oil rig workers. I found this page and have been searching for their names and have not seen them and wanted to give others a chance if they are in contact with them as well.

They Are Persistant
by: Anonymous

I've dealt with this guy (s) on several occasions. I can't recall all of the names used, but today's name is Paul Heinrich, of German descent who came to LA, CA as a babe. Parents are dead; aunt raised him but also dead. Travels a lot for business and claims to be a "global contractor dealing in oil platforms, rig constructions, renovations, over water bridges, interior decors and some art work.

I chatted back and forth for about 2 hours just to see what the angle would be this time. Was given an email address to continue the conversation because he says he doesn't get on FB much.

After doing some searches, I suspect this is just another attempt by these guys. I've not gotten to the point where they ask for money; usually, the lingo becomes the same and I don't like games/scams/thieves/liars or con men! I'll see what tomorrow brings.

Paul Mcharty

I was scammed by a man named Paul Mcharty. He sent me a copy of his passport along with a picture I requested with him holding 3 fingers up with the date on it. I also had to try to make sure he was not on one of those catfish sites which he was not. He asked me to help him get his money out of customs that he was sending to me because he said he is a chef on an oil tanker in Indonesia and they have a high rate of pirates.

I have been speaking to this man over a year and I am ashamed to admit I fell for it. I sent 1,970.00 US dollars to a shipping company called fast Trust services. Now they want 17,622.00.

I definitely want to turn him in.

Looking for someone to talk
by: I want to heal

Hey ladies! A few days ago I posted about my scammer and I check for comments everyday because I can’t let go. I feel too ashamed to tell my family or friends and i am still so hurt. It’s been three weeks since I realized what happened to me and my heart is broken. I thought maybe some of you would like to chat about their experience in a more private way.

For this reason I got myself a new emailaccount which is wewillheal@gmx.de

If any one of you feels the need to talk about what happened to you, please reach out to me. We could form some sort of support group and help each other get over the pain.

I have lost so many hopes because of this. I would love to find someone to talk to who understands how I feel after what happened.

Looking forward to hearing from you. My heart goes out to you!

I thought no I have never had that much money in the bank at one time so I guess I got hacked. I really dont know what they took. I was talking to William d Robertson who said he was in France and would be home this week so I guess he's a lot smarter than me but anyways if y'all run across anyone thats says they are in France and they had a bad accident on the oil rig off of France stay away from them as they are bad people

If Scammers Want Cards Give Them One!
by: Anonymous

Hello Ladies

I am a male and not a scammer. But I experienced a female oil rig worker who was a scammer having come across this thread. She is mentioned in this thread!

One thing I have noticed is that you are all being asked for Steam cards or some form of card rather than cash.

I use a popular dating site and it is rampant with scammers. Steam cards, Google Play cards and iTune cards are always asked for as a first step to test the water by the scammers. So I give them one!

So just get a cup of coffee and Google each of the cards I mentioned and if you try hard enough you will soon find there are many USED card images available with numbers and expiration dates clearly visible. Download them.

When asked, I re-affirm my love for then and profusely apologize that I only have $500 iTunes cards which I bought in the USA a few days ago. Being greedy they say that is okay can you send two please honey? Why yes baby I will do that now!

Two USED cards are sent and they are clueless. They take the details and go off to cash them in or spend them. Let's just say the experience is rather awkward for them when told the cards are useless.

I'm always highly amused by the responses I get and then I block them. Lesson is never send a thing but if you want to play them at their own game this is one way you can put them in a spot of bother. After blocking take their image and email and sign them up to a couple of gay or lesbian online dating sites for fun too.

Take care! :)

Ladies, I have four of them I had been dealing with. Donald Hedlund-from Nevada, stuck in a oasis Hospital in London, there is no such hospital in London, he says they won’t let him out because he owes a balance, now he needs a phone and wants Amazon cards, hes an only child, no kids. he’s blocked.

Frank Michael- from Georgia, US. He’s on an oil rig off the UK coast. One son staying with his uncle who supposedly works for the FBI, he’s looking to have money sent thru Bitcoin. He’s blocked.

Alex Broochi - he’s in Dubai, one daughter in California with his sister. He wants a phone, he went to a party and was robbed. Lost everything. Loves me he’s blocked.

Lee Rosbauch - he’s a captain that is on yachts, he’s from New Jersey, he’s run out of food. Wanted to do a blood oath with me so we could be bound to each other, his wife. He’s looking for Amazon cards and money for food for his crew. They are starving. He’s blocked.

Ladies don’t listen to their lies, don’t send money or cards. Do not receive anything from them, they are scumbag thieves. They don’t and never will love you, you will never see them. There will be one excuse after another, so we need to stop listening to them, we need to shut them down.

They are no good.

Apart from the hurt we have all suffered (financially, emotionally, or both), it is sad to me that we all still use "Anonymous" as our names. The world is so crazy, we don't know what the repercussions will be if we use our real name. I did the same thing when I spoke about Dennis Mitcham, Demitch Energy.

I am thankful for this website, but wish there was a way for us all to gather together. The problem seems so pervasive. After having my heart completely broken, I am happy to say that I was able to steer another friend clear, who was falling into the same trap.

Dennis Mitcham, Demitch Energy, is the one who got me.

I 100% believed everything he wrote/said. Always get photos and check on Pimeyes.com. Even then I didn't want to believe I'd been used. When do the "good guys" ever get a win over the bad guys? Karma is really slow! My heart goes out to you all.

Apparently I am one of those who learn the hard and very expensive way. A man should never ask you for money. If they do it will be for phone minutes, food, passport issues, visa issues, boarding school bills, birthday presents for kids in boarding school. Wives always die of cancer, killed in car accidents or are caught cheating with best friend. Credit cards are ALWAYS stolen and they have zero friends or family to assist them with all the issues. They almost always have two first names. They are heartless snakes who prey on the kindness of others.

I would like to think that in this world of high tech we could do more to stop them that what is being done.

Franklin Smith drilling engineer
by: Charmed for 6 days

My "friend" is from Germany and has one son who is in boarding school in New York. He has not a single living relative. His parents died in a plane crash and his wife died of cancer 4 years ago. He fell madly in love with me after two days of chatting. He was charming but too good to be true.

He used an adorable man’s Facebook profile which initially lured me in. He deleted that profile on the third day explaining that he’s not permitted to have FB on the rig so the company deleted his account. That was the first sign of fraud because when I saw that "his" profile was gone, I looked on messenger which noted that he was just logged on 40 minutes ago, so I knew he had done it, not the company. He also asked me questions that we had already talked about so he seemed to be confused as if he were chatting with others for same romantic purpose at the same time.

I started googling Mexico sea and nothing ever came up but he insisted it was not the gulf, it was the sea. Then I googled some more and started seeing others being scammed the same way. He definitely had me going and anxious to chat each afternoon, but thank goodness, on the sixth day after him asking for pictures of me but would not reciprocate, I got smart and blocked him.

I wish I knew how to alert the real adorable man that his profile has been jeopardized.

James Harold
by: Anonymous

Hi, was chatting with this person who called himself/herself James Harold. I say person because I never saw them on video chat or even heard a voice. We met on a dating app called Hinge and that's where it began. He used a picture of a nice young man sandy/brown hair and wears glasses. He was very convincing, chatted in perfect English and always called me darling. He spoke very highly of himself saying he had a lot of money because he was an engineer for the oil company Exxon mobile. He filled my head with dreams and lies.

Then eventually started saying he could pay off my credit card debts and I was reluctant at first but eventually let him do it. He actually did pay them off! But then here's the kicker, he asked if I could buy gift cards with those credit cards so he could use the codes on them to upgrade some machines for the oil rig.

And ladies I fell for it because the first card I sent he payed it off right away and every single other gift card I sent after that!

But a couple of months went by and he still asked for cards and kept promising that he was almost done with work that soon we would be together. He told me he would love my son as his own and everything!

Today he wanted for me to send more because he had smaller machines to upgrade now and that was it! I cutoff all communication and reported him to the FTC. These people read you and know how to convince you! Jesus I feel so dumb!

Please be careful all.

Uses pictures of a German man. I contacted the person behind the pictures via instagram to tell him about the stolen identity.

After confronting the scammer, he admitted to be from Nigeria, in his thirties. Says he is forced to do it because of his poor background. He says he is working alone, without any gang" in the background.

What to do/ response
by: Anonymous

The name he’s using is John Jackson, met through Facebook then went to hangouts. Claims he’s an engineer working for Exxon on a ship in the Mediterranean. Claims he can’t have a phone, doesn’t have a camera on his computer, so he can’t send a photo of him touching his ear or any photo that’ll prove it was taken today.

They’ve been talking for 5-6 months, says he’s been on the ship that whole time which is a lie, as they don’t let workers just live on those ships they make you go home after 30 days at the most. He’s sent her 3 fake photos, the last one isn’t a model so it’s been difficult to prove who the actual person is. He tells her his FB acct was hacked and the photos is of him but he’s confused as to how it got on the scam site where I found it.

He claims to have 1.3 million and has to pay fees to have it transferred to the US, she sent money to a "diplomat" paying the fees since she’s getting the 1.3 million it seemed ok to her. Yes, I’m rolling my eyes while typing this because I can’t believe my intelligent mother fell for this line of crap!

The payments were cash advances on her credit cards, he’s telling her he’s going to pay her back and there was a payment on one card that was returned so it didn’t go through but in her eyes he’s trying, so that keeps her faith in him in tact.

My brother and I have made every argument we can think of. She believes he’s going to show up any day and straighten everything out and pay her back. We don’t know what to do other than protect her assets and hope they loser goes away. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I told her she’s too close to this to see what we see from our perspective. She refuses to block him and insists on talking to him.

I have been such an ass until reading all this online about Oil Rig scammers. It was innocent at first and he started talking to me on Words with friends then asked me to use the app Whatsup app & Hangout.

That is when he started romancing me and then the problem would happen & he really needed me to send cards right away.

Chris Miller and Scott Dickson
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Hi, everyone. How many of you have received a follow request by Chris Miller and Scott Dickson? The former claims to be a marine engineer and another a petroleum engineer. The latter also claims to work with the United Nations, which I think is a lie.

I blocked them before they could ask for money, though.

This is to what do I do?
by: Anonymous

Please tell your Mom trust me from experience, these scum bags aren't worth it. I have text this site several times over the last 8-9 months. I too was a victim of a romance scam over a year ago. The SOB got $3300 from me, sent by a ck. to a 3rd party. Yes I was crazy in love with this man, only to realized it was all about money.

As soon as the ck cleared he wanted 2 I phones, constantly asking for money. He supposedly fell at a airport and now needed brain surgery. Police confiscated his contract money and he needs to pay a fine. This all came to a head in Jan of this year.

Found out by this awesome site, a blog for Pimeye where I pd $10 only to find that he had stolen a politicians profile. Yes I did get in touch with the man, also let FB know. Now going forward, yes I have learned. This past Thursday, Halloween, I friended a FB request, thought about it, still did it because he sent a request with a picture of a dog. Ok, fast forward 4 days and 6hrs he deleted me because after 3-4 times he kept asking for my email. I don't use a email. His name was Steve Palmer, a supposed serviceman in Yemen and asked for a selfie since all I had was the dogs picture. Billy the dog supposedly passed away a few weeks back.

I was asked 4 x for my email, but not happening. Told Steve I was already a victim, not happening again, to be patient with me since we just met. He as a son 12+, his profile Said divorced. I mentioned divorced he said his wife had passed. So what I'm saying is to be careful.

Never found out his birthday or favorite color, but he knew that I was a senior and never even questioned my town as to where I live. I asked when he graduated but got no answer. Please show your Mom this, trust me my guard is up.

I took money out of my retirement acct for the 1st one. Not happening again. Oh now working on finding the scum who originally ripped me off. I will keep in touch.

Thank you everyone, please be strong.

The scammers these days are very good at what they do. Im glad you have taken over her assets because they will drain her dry if you don't. I was scammed by a very charming man a few years ago. It took some time for me to realize he wasn't who he said he was. Just keep trying.

If you can find pictures from other sites with different names associated, that will help. But know she will be asking this person about it and they will have some kind of answer ready.

Good luck! I wish you the best with this! PB

My mother is being scammed. My brother and I have showed her all the evidence, 3 fake photos, how his story makes no sense, we’ve made every argument imaginable but she refuses to stop talking to the guy.

We’ve secured assets where she can’t send him more money.

Anthony Scholls oil rig engineer of Luxembourg
by: Anonymous

I’m still reeling from this scammer. Anthony texted me on the site Meet Me in late of 2013. I had recently been separated from my husband of 25yrs, too say the least I was vulnerable. I had a successful nursing career, no children, four dogs, caring for my recently widowed mother.

My life was full, but I was too easy of a target for my battered heart. Anthony had sent a friend request, handsome, widower, three kids, his Kidd’s lived with his elderly mother in Georgia. His daughter was fifteen, son 10, another daughter around six. His eldest daughter remarkably looked like me when I was her age! Anthony worked on an oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

We texted a bit, then he called, he certainly did not sound like a European, rather like someone from the Caribbean (I was married to a Czech for 25 years) surrounded by Europeans the majority of my life. I made that comment and he laughed, claiming he works with a bunch from the East Indies hence the odd accent, he was charming, romantic, although I didn’t believe him completely, I enjoyed the attention.

I laughed when he claimed he was going to buy us a beautiful home in Florida. I viewed the real estate pic, then he asked me to send to "his friend " 250,000.00 USD so his friend could take care of the transaction for us and once I had stopped laughing, I said I would fly to Florida to check it out for myself and deal with real estate, lawyers, etc, the way a purchase was done.

Subject changed, fast forward two months, he is still on the oil Rig, it’s his daughters birthday and he wants to do something special for his daughter but he can’t do anything and he’s in tears and asks me for 500.00. I told him to ask his mother, his friends, but the sobbing got to me, and the pic of this gal, so I sent it western union to some gal in Georgia, an Aunt.

This guy claimed he was going to take care of me, his kids and mother were excited to meet me.
Then his mother went into kidney failure and he needed 10,000.00 USD to save his mothers life, could I borrow money from the bank for it?? I said no and I couldn’t get a loan so he said could i remortgage my home but I said no (it was up for sale) and for once I was steadfast.

A few weeks later his laptop and his good sneakers were stolen (he is now on a rig off the Nigerian coast) and could I send him my IPAD because I don’t need it and he also wanted an IPHONE, and again mine would do, and size 10 air Nikes.

It bugged me greatly and I spoke to my ex husband (a cop) and my ex felt bad for me but told me to be strong and block this guy which I did. Fortunately 500.00 is all I lost.

I’ve always liked to see the good in people, a person once said I was too kind for my own good.
I have nothing good to say about this guy. I was angry with myself for a long time for being duped.

Shame on this impostor. I can only hope that he is in a jail cell somewhere for a very long long time.

Seems to me that these scammers will change their names. (Easiest thing to do!) Two with these names ended up asking for money (which I did NOT send.) The first (contacted me on Facebook) was too good looking in photos and wrote very charming words that I began to love reading. He wanted a cheap $200.00 phone card.

The second met on Plenty of Fish. Said he was a cocoa dealer about to retire. Wrote at first too many words about how honest and trust worthy he was. (Bad sign!) After a number of e-mails he was on a business trip overseas and all his items were stolen by the cab driver. He needed ME to send him money! No, and I was mad.

NEVER SEND MONEY! TOO HUNGRY FOR ROMANCE? WATCH A HALLMARK MOVIE! LOL

Sounds like my scammer. North sea above UK in Shetland Inlands working BP as engineer. He was running a crew of 44 men. Crane broke and cost 10k for the tech's to fix it and then 9k for hotels and food stuff and medicine. Total 30k lost and my heart broken too. He came back many times but after the truth came He got no more and the images off Facebook account Doug Blevins of Fl he used on me.

See if they are the same images and if so, has he changed his name. I am in recovery now and repairing losses. He hurt me but its not final.

His Judgement will come in God's time as well as the rest of the liars and rotten scammers.

If you think its the same man let me know on here as I stay hidden mostly cause of my profession.

I have been so stupid, lots of money, ITUNES cards ect. no more! Done!

Met on Facebook then went to Google Hangouts! Only spoken 3 times, no video chats despite my insistence as he claims not permitted on rig! Do not believe him. Have many pictures of him and I’ll share if anyone has been in contact with a man who sounds similar.

He recently started his own business finding oil rig. His company got a big project in some remote place. He couldn't contact me as often because he's in the field.

He was very religious and sweet. He wanted to get married soon and move in together. He eventually asked for money to pay the bank fee to wire me money to get his dream house near where I leave.

I of course did not send it and blocked him right away.

Well, I told her it’s a fake check and he wants her to withdraw the money once it’s no longer pending and hasn’t given any instructions otherwise.

Tell your Mom to please read all these posts. He has already asked her for money once and he will continue to ask her until she gives in. The only way to get rid of him is block him. Otherwise, he will continue with the emails, etc. until she sends him something.

She needs to understand one thing. SHE WILL NEVER MEET HIM. HE IS NIGERIAN. Probably in his 20s or 30s. So, if it is worth paying for someone to give her attention, that is her business.

However, there have been women that have sold their homes, cars, given their retirement money and NEVER seen the ruthless losers.

He uses the name Bernard Leon, which is fake, pictures of a fairly handsome tall man with green eyes, salt and pepper hair. Also posing for pictures with a chocolate Labrador, and a beautiful blond daughter.

We were supposed to meet this weekend, when suddenly he needs to be on the platform, (oil rig) in the Gulf Of Mexico.

He’s missing his daughter’s birthday today, but surprisingly hasn’t asked for money yet, like I read in other posts. I’m pretty sure he knows I’m on to him, because I told him he was too good to be true, and jokingly asked if he was Nigerian. He has an accent that sound more like German, than Nigerian.

He contacted me by Facebook and when I questioned him who are you and what do you want? He went to hangouts. I had a relative tell me a couple of weeks they had a friend that might contact me so I accepted his request. David said he was from Sweden, had 2 children in Nashville, Tn and his wife had died in a car accident.

Out of the blue he started with very romantic conversations. How beautiful I was. He went on and on with it and avoided my questions. He constantly reinforced his honesty (red flag). His English was typical of someone that English wasn't their first language.

The marriage subject came up the first evening (red flag) and he was very pushy on that subject. I was playing his game and as he thought he had hooked me, the English became understandable. I have never done any type of match services or online dating so I don't know how he got my name.

I got info on this site then called a good friend of mine that is a FBI agent and then sent him a text at a time instructed by FBI. It pinpoints where he is and brought him up on their radar. Men like this are serious predators.

Ladies, I know we get lonesome and feel unwanted at times, but please listen to your intuition. God gave it to us to protect us. Listen to friends/family. If he sounds to good to be true or asks for money get out of there they have NO MORALS.

Walter Henz or Eric Henz
by: Anonymous

Walter is of German descent and is an architectural Engineer. Lived in the UK but wins a contract to work in Cyprus and his wife cheated on him and he had a daughter living with mom in Germany. He is extremely attractive and I have been unable to find anything on reverse image.

He calls and send love emails and calls me princess, my queen, and baby professing his love. But here is the thing. His offshore Clarion Bank Account freezes half way through the contract and he is unable to obtain money to pay his workers and pay for materials and he has to ask his translator to raise a loan on his house but this guy can only raise half of what is needed. He then asks me for $25000 to help him pay for his materials and help him pay his workers and when I refuse he says I don’t care about him and then goes silent for a week.

He then phoned and asks me if I can help with $12000 as he had managed to raise some more but still I can’t help. He is quiet again for a few days and then calls to say he has been arrested in Cyprus for not paying his workers as his Bank won’t unfreeze his account and he had to go to Bermuda to the bank personally to unlock it.

Can I send funds to pay for his flight tickets to go to Bermuda as his mom has passed away whilst in prison and so it goes on. He is very convincing and uses emotional blackmail. I work in finance and know banks can unlock your account by answering security questions.

Beware ladies thus one doesn’t give up and I met him on a dating site called Bumble.

So, I caught on pretty early and googled Bernard Leon, age, city and state with absolutely no results.

I then searched for SilverSingles Oil Rig Engineer scams, and was shocked at the amount of us women, this fool is trying to scam. He told me his ex wife was in a car accident, passed away, and he had to raise his eleven year old daughter alone, but now that she’s away in college and settled, it was time for him to start dating.

He started telling me, he was so happy he found me, how beautiful I am, how it was meant to be. Shortly after a few days the warm hugs, kiss emojis, text msgs from "work", etc. were just too much. Yesterday he told me he had to go out on the platform (oil rig) in the Gulf Of Mexico for three weeks, after I asked when he wanted to meet.

I’m waiting for him to ask for money, so I can make a fool out of him by telling him I’m sending it so that he can be let down after he gets absolutely nothing, but blocked!

He will romance you with love songs and sweet romantic speech. He also works with a person Charlene Lyburtus who claims to be in real estate and another person who she claims to be her brother and his name is Oscar Edward.

Merit Bobby Jackson

I want to warn you guys about the guy under a name "Merit Bobby Jackson".

He said he's an oil rig engineer in Colorado. 40 years old, was born in the 1st Oct, 1979. Yes, he's a "widower" and his wife was dead because of a car accident. He will give you pictures of his own and his twin bro. He will also show you how hard he is now because of depression. But he will not tell you in detail how his wife died. And after the death of the wife are relationships with girls but they are not sincere with him because they just want his money.

He will say that his sad story is the same with yours, will send you many romantic things such as YouTube links, advise you to live better, learn how to love him. He promises he will come to see you but doesn't know when, haha. He could never call you by video because he's on the oil rig. He's the wise one.

If you found something and talk to him that you know everything, he will be very rude, swear at your face and then block you. He got an Instagram acc named meritbobbyj. The account shows that he's a gentleman.

Actually, he's not. Be careful with him.

David Garry
by: Anonymous

Here’s a new one Ladies. His name is David Garry, claims to be an army commander currently in Afghanistan. After several days of polite conversation, he claimed to be in love with me, and last night asked for a $300 steam card.

Glad I refused. He also hacked my Facebook account, which I’ve taken care of. He called me this morning, very strong accent, most likely Nigerian. He confessed that he is just a boy trying to help his family.

His photo shows him in a red Corvette, then he added a photo of army personnel with himself in the picture.

This guy started off with a lot of romance and talk of a life together, marriage etc. stated he was wealthy, a widower lost his wife in a car accident and that he was an engineer for the oil platforms. Has twins, a boy and a girl. Even had his "daughter" email me.

Took a contract on a rig in the North Sea. Got over there and supposedly had his Chase bank account frozen because he was overseas and they couldn't verify his identity.

I work in law enforcement and started doing research. There was nothing about him that was valid or true. He had a french accent and is very good at what he does.

Beware folks I caught him before he could ask for money!

Does anyone know of a David Lude, oil rig worker. I suspect he is a scammer and he has already hooked my vulnerable sister, who should know better. She has already told him she loves him after only a month on hangout. Never met in person. When I confronted her, she said I just didn't understand they had a "special" bond. He speaks very poetically and romantically, she said.

He also has a teenage daughter. What a coincidence. I wonder if she too attends a boarding school.

Be aware of men with accent saying they are Petroleum Controller
by: Anonymous

He sent me a friend request using someone else pictures, if though he was interested in a relationship. He told me he lost his wife to cancer and he had a 13 year old son in Atlanta and his mother was taking care of him. He told me he was working in London as a Petroleum Controller, and he was going to retire at the end of October and he would get his lump some at retirement.

After 4 weeks talking to him in Hangout he later try to spam me for amazon cards and $7500 other monies. He became very needy. Then he finally decided to come clean and said he lived Warri Nigeria after he saw that I wasn't going to give monies.

He revealed his true identity in hangout face time which was totally different than the man pictures he had been sending me for weeks. He told me to look up Larry Billlionz on FB and that was his true identity.

After that I told him I wanted nothing to do with him. The only thing I am out of is $150 in amazon cards and very disappointed.

Kelvin Williams hyperbaric welder affiliated w/DiveTech and Chinese vendor is a scam

"Kelvin Williams" handsome man with beard and great smile won my heart. He said all the right things. Widowed with 13 year old son Melvin in a boarding school in Washington DC.

"Kelvin" said he is a hyperbaric welder suddenly went off to work off the shore of Port of Melbourne with poor phone reception.
Supposedly he needed his steel pipes from Chinese vendor Huike Steel, saw the fake invoice with contact name of Venus Young.

Supposedly this con-artist has a bank account with Danske Bank in Denmark with personal Banker named Eric Walter. If this scenario or names sound familiar it is a scam!

I met a guy called jacob Gamaliel Walsh. He said is was working on an oil rig in Norway.

All these stories sound so familiar to mine.

He had several "accidents" with different machines and they needed to be repaired to meet the production target so i helped him with nearly US $10000. The transfers were made to people with African names who lived in serviced apartments.

He was always asking for more money, as his daughter Ivy was in boarding school in Atlanta. He had to pay for her education and her keep. Then his contract was finished and he could not go back to the US he did not have the money for the air fare.

On the game of scrabble they are a lot of guys all working on oil rigs, all with children with practically the same story.

I fell for him because he was gentle and i was at a period of my life may be vulnerable.

Scam man from Geotek Engineering Nashville,tn
by: Anonymous

He found me in Instagram. Introducing himself for a widower with a 4 years old daughter. He told me he works in Geotek Engineering Nashville,TN. He was waiting to get a work contract abroard for about 6.4 millions dollars. His name is Bravo Bryan. He also said his wife passed away from cancer 3 years ago. He looks a handsome man, 45 years old. Like a normal ordinary man. We have been texting for a while, since August this year. After one week chat he stopped and vanished. He asked me also to chat via hangouts (which I've never heard of before).

After 2 days mysteriously he called me on hangout to say how he was sorry he didn't answer my messages and he didn't txt as well. He said his father passed away accidentally and he has needed to prepare the funeral. Anyway after he told me he got the big job and he needed to put his daughter in a Foster home for a while because he needs to fly to China to buy installation equipment.

He also asked me to be his next of kin and to fill up one sheet of paper for his contract. I've refused to attach my id/passport to this sheet of paper but he made me fill up at least my names, phone and address. I didn't put my real full name and address but I left my phone number.

Anyway he is very charming with so many romantic words and etc. That sometimes made me suspicious and I asked him how come you can fall for someone like this.

Before he "go to China" he asked me to buy for his daughter Google play cards for about 150-250$ but I have refused. He told me that I'm selfish and how his wife (that's me) doesn't want to look after "our" daughter?!?

Anyway he was a bit rude then and I was thinking to quit this conversation with him but I didn't.
Now at the latest he asked me to pay his annual taxes because that stopped him to purchase the last installation and to get the flight for Sydney to finish his job.

Thank you to all of you who shared your stories. I didn't send him any money. But I would have because he wrote me "you want me to day here not seeing my daughter again and not meet up with you"?

Stay safe ladies! Don't allow anyone to play with your heart.

He works for TransUnion Drilling. Has a 13 year old daughter. My first conversation did not sound right. I looked up his Facebook page and there was a different photo than what he sent to me.

He asked that I add him to the Hangout website to talk more securely. I did but stopped and will now block him since he shows up as a different person on Facebook than the photo he sent me. He comes on too strong. Some words he uses don't fit the conversation.

I sent a friend request to the person I saw on Facebook just to let him know that I am aware of what he is doing and will block him from calling me.

He stole Al Shatti's photo and used the name of Greg Maddo and when I blocked him on Instagram he changed his name but use the same photo.

Right! Luckily my Mom didn't feel right and asked me. This is a total scam and when researching seeing so many claim to be on oil rigs, widowed and with children. FB page only has one person on there. Good looking man, in love, same as what I just read here. So glad my Mom decided to talk to me about this or who knows.

Im sure i am being scammed. I have read all the comments from others. His name is David Oliver. He says he is on a Oil Rig for Shell Petroleum in the Ocean in West Africa. His son is in a boarding school in Paris. He told me his son got very sick and needs medical treatment. He asked if I could send him money to help pay for it. When I told him his health insurance should pay for it he said No not in private hospitals. Then he said if I cant help by sending money to him for that then I have to get his money from a private Security Company in England to contact them and get his money delivered to me here in the USA. But when I contacted that Company they said I needed to send them $3000.00 dollars in order to process and deliver his money.

Then when the money gets to my house i am to pay the money for his sons treatment then contact him and i am to send money to Shell and get him released from his job. It will cost $4500.00 for him to come here to me. Once he is here we will get married and find a nice house and live happily forever with him and his son which we will get back from Paris when he is better.

You think I am being scammed?

He tried to get me to talk to him on an App. We chatted for a few weeks. He told me that he was so in love with me. BS.

I knew this was a scam right away. I was waiting for the ball to drop. He finally asked me for an Amazon card. I refused of course. He got upset and told me that I was a terrible friend for not helping him. Why would he ask for an Amazon card when he has his own business? You should be smarter as a business owner.

I took screen shots of the conversation to report him to LinkedIn. I did this before he tried to block me. If they block you, you don't have proof to show to LinkedIn and they can't remove him.

Assistance
by: Anonymous

To the person warning against those who offer to help being scammers read this. I am the one who provided a real email address offering to provide assistance. We have made contact and are communicating as we are both Australian. Two others asked for assistance too. I am retired and young. I went to online dating and my first encounter was a catfish scam for $100,000. I reported it on scamwatch.com and then went on trying to find someone. All I was met with was scam after scam.

I changed sites and the same again. It is rampant and I have time to spare and kill so I looked into it. I researched it with law enforcement agencies and not much happens. So as I had time I decided instead of watching movies and Netflix I would take scammers on at their own game. I now play their game and things developed quickly. So I researched more and soon I came across the dark web and that was a real eye opener. I went back to playing by their rules which basically are none. Just lies and deception all predicated upon one thing, greed.

I am not going to stop playing their game as I have nothing to lose and I have no shame admitting to being as ruthless as them in how I treat them. I use my real name with them and do not hide as the more I play them the more I take of their time to prevent them from real scamming. I do not charge a dollar for assistance. I am NOT a scam. The email address I provided IS real and used against scammers.

As I said it is rampant and there some who actually care and have good values who are willing to help those who fell victim to these low lives. A little help can restore their faith in humanity right after they've taken a strong emotional hit.

Would refuse to ever talk to me on the phone or FaceTime. Claims he lives in Tampa. He’s charming and wow those photos he’s stealing are of a really attractive guy...too bad he’s a scam.

He never asked me for any money but did say he travelled with an "expired debit card". I’m sure he’s trying to build some rapport with me before asking for money.

Can anyone from the UK tell me if a small bank in the UK is called Grandchaster? My person is adamant that there is one called that even though google can’t find one.

Apparently I am to email them and they will return the money that I lent to my person. But I have to come up with $10,000 AUD which is the tax payable on all overseas transfers. He gets very upset when I question him and he says I have to collect this money and pay the tax as he needs half sent back to him as all his funds have been frozen by the RDI I think he said. Because of unpaid taxes?????

He works or worked on an oil rig of Edinburgh. But presently back in US in hospital very sick. Never tells me where he is other than Texas or NY. Won’t say what is wrong with him, supposedly has a daughter in boarding school but doesn’t talk much about her at all and she is 12.

Communicated with him on Words with Friends. Seemed to be a nice guy, saying all the right things, etc. etc. Finally he said he couldn't get into his bank account and get funds out and asked me to pay for his internet and if I didn't he wouldn't be able to talk with me. Told him I had no money and he asked me to put it on my credit card and just send the first few digits and he would start the transaction or for me to do a bank transfer.

Had fallen for this guy and then I realised he was probably a scammer. I was broken hearted and when I refused to send him money, he told me he was very disappointed in me but still loved me.
He is a liar, I tried to talk to him on his email but he refused to email me back.

'Widow' and 'Widower" are different words!!!
by: 71 and happy

Hubby and I just moved down here to New Orleans. After less than a week on my new FB account, I get a friend request from a SCOTT TERRANCE. (Terrance is spelled with an 'e', not an A). Also the two first names gave me pause. He said I 'had a nice smile." Ric, my husband of eleven years, thinks I do, too. Then we exchanged a few messages. He said his wife 'died on labor" (in labor, he meant). Then that he is based in Texas, but working on an oil rig in Scotland. (!).

I told him when I married Ric, his first wife had in fact died, making him a widower. Evidently Scott was unfamiliar with the term. He replied, "I am sorry for your loss. Do you live alone?" I said, "No, I live with Ric." Then he asked AGAIN if I lived alone. I finally said,, "Do you moonlight as a private detective?" Moonlighting is a term anyone raised in the US/UK would understand. It is a common expression for someone who works a second job to earn extra money. His response, "I don't understand." I ignored him.

A few days later, I got a one word message, "Hello." Ignored that one as well. It must be lonesome out there in scam-ville..

My mom to a victim

Hello. I have posted here several times as a victim of oil rigger engineer scams. He came in on Twitter name @jeffblak01 and also had 7 other working sites he said he was a supervisor of 44 men building a rig in the North sea above UK in Shetland Inlands working for BP.

We chatted lots and he got romantic about two weeks into the conversation. The daily poems, the text, hangouts the whole thing he become part of my mind everyday. My heart was falling for him and my nights were daydreams of him.

He had a breakdown and needed 10k for oil crane repair and needed 9k for techs to install parts shipped and then needed help for hotels and food stuff and medicine.

I sent 30000.00 bucks then I found the truth about him that he was fake, a profile, fake name, stolen images and I confronted him and he took off.

Very painful mentally and my heart broke I never told family they would be very critical so I bore the pain alone the money he left me in deft still three more years to pay off but I am healing and free of him.

All along this scammer was on my 85 year old
mother whom I love dearly and is being romanced by a man in prison. He lied to her over five years with a fake job, fake money etc.

When he got out he groomed my mom and her sister for many thousands of dollars that I knew nothing about and he put a very expensive SUV [a Lincoln] in moms name and took off and headed to LA California.

My mom is weak and can hardly stand and even one day and she asked me in a heart soft voice " Can you help me?"

After being scammed myself I knew who to call and now detectives in two countries are involved here. The con man is a destroyer.

We did not know of him and I did an investigation on Google and OH DEAR he was a real famous con man and even had a TV program with his story.

We had no idea who he was until the search got finished.

Now sadly we will put him back in prison for the rest of his natural life. He has already done over 25 years in prison and now when they get him he will have to go back.

I am glad to help my mom and I wish there was a way he would bring back the thousands of dollars and the SUV.

There were no winners in all this and nothing but disgrace and broken hearted women as many of you are and still are.

Play no games with them. They do NOT LOVE OR CARE WHAT THEY WANT IS MONEY AS NO MATTER TO THEM WHO IT HURTS.

I just hope my dear 85 year old mom can find peace as with all of you and recover and get rest, peace and find some sort of happiness while we still are alive.

Trust nobody until they prove they are worthy

God bless us all.

Possible mules

I have names of three possible mules that my scammer wanted me to send money to for his daughter’s nanny because the daughter, her name is Emily and is 14 years old in North Carolina, is in the hospital because of a bus accident.

Their names: Vilma Martinez from Tampa Florida
Luyi Autos , North Carolina and Brenda Chambers from Oneida Tennessee.

If you see the head names, they are associated with scammers.

Sucked my mom in. Said he is on an oil rig in Texas. Has a home in California he will sell if she divorces her husband and they can buy a home together in the state she lives in. She met him on words with friends. 1st thing he said was, the minute I saw your picture I knew you were my beautiful angel and I fell in love with you. His wife supposedly died from cancer 14 years ago and has a son that is 14 or 16 years old.

It was great chatting but now I’m seeing the side he saying he needs help with funds. Do these guys think women are that foolish to say ok I will send right over. So everyone please watch yourselves.

Scammer Targeted almost 90 yo grandmother
by: Annette

Yet another version of the same stories on this board. This one goes by Thomas Anderson.

He has convinced my grandma that he is in love with her (though they have NEVER MET--and even online he says he's about 30 years younger than her). Basic details are all the same: he works on a oil rig, has children that need money, etc.

She sold her house and sent him the money to make a down payment on their "dream house" in California, and has been sending him every dime from her meager social security income ever since. He's been promising to come and pick her up to drive her to California to their new home (which is TOTALLY REAL) for months, but somehow there is always some reason he can't come. Imagine that.

They communicate via Google Hangouts--which must be scam artists' best friend--as often as I've seen it mentioned here.

PLEASE don't fall for this. He is not real. He does not love you. There will be no happily ever after. Save yourself the money and the tears.

The one talking to Chris Anderson

Yes, I was talking to a scammer but he went by the name of Frank Dennis or Denis, another person here picked up on the same story but said his name was Chris Anderson when she was talking to him.

I met him on WWF and we went to hangouts. First he wanted me to help pay for him to go on vacation so he could come home to me, I refused, now he said his daughter was in a bad bus accident and wanted me to pay so she could have surgery, but I told him that a hospital doesn’t ask for money Up front in an emergency. I blocked him.

Another scammer goes by the name of Donald Hedlund, his wife supposedly died in childbirth also. He is in London or somewhere in the UK. Don’t listen to any of them.

Most of these men have the same mode of operation. I emailed words with friends and asked them to look into people who block a large number of users. My experience is, as soon as I tell the scammer no, they block me. I get approached almost weekly by strange men wanting love i.e. money. The comical part is, my profile pic on words with friends is a picture of my dog, yet the scammers tell me how beautiful I am LOL.

He claimed he was working in oil rig and the equipment broke and then he was held hostage on the rig and them had go to England to Cash his 4.2 million and go to court for a man responsible for holding him and his crew hostage.

Hi. I'm going to say that Match.com is a site to avoid at all costs. It is full of scammers and fake profiles or people from overseas. I decided enough was enough and played their game. Thing about a scammer is they can be fake but to collect the money they need a real name and bank account. I play them to that point then refuse to pay.

They get angry and I then Demand 10,000 dollars in Bitcoin or I'll wipe out their bank account. We'll leave it at that but there are now a lot of scammers that are out of pocket!

Jeffery William

Same old scam as the others. His wife and daughter were killed in car wreck 5 years ago. He has 15 year old son in boarding school in Cleveland, Ohio. His name is Josh. "Jeffery" needed Steam cards to get minutes to be in contact with his son because a doctor from Cleveland Clinic wanted to talk to him about a condition his son had (which I looked up), and only elderly people have it.

So beware of the name Jeffery William, ladies, and he is supposedly on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

I have found that when they start trying to carry on a conversation with you on game sites, if you ignore them or, block the messages, they will resign, and you will win the game. Lol

Just be careful what you tell someone, and who you accept friend requests from. I decline several a day on FB and Instagram. They ALWAYS want you to download Hangouts!!

Just to follow up. I was notified early this month by 2 woman who were in contact with peter and how they found me I don't know but he has been asking them for money using APPLE CARDS. He asks the number on the card and amount then goes to a store and gets the money, and its how I did it for him - anyway they turned him in.

He is also on mail peteranderson4life@gmail.com

I was devastated when I was given this info at the start of this month. 3 years of my life but I take the blame for not doing a background check but for some reason I did not feel the need to do it with him but never again so be very careful ladies.

The sweetest fellas can be the worst ever. I even did an obituary check and no baby has died early this month like he said his son did who was 2.

Benjamin Hoch

Benjamin Hoch ruined my life.

Austin, Texas is where he said he lived. And supposedly has multiple houses. One of such in Silver Quail, Texas.

He was supposedly born on November 30th, 1960 or 1961. It was always different.

Born in Hamburg, Germany, or so he said. Works on an oil rig for Shell Oil company and was a billionaire.

He is supposedly a God fearing man and wants a submissive wife. And if she does something he doesnt like he says hurtful things or mitigates the blame towards you by saying you don't love him.

He has a son named Andy Hoch who is 11 (?) and is in a boarding school. Though later on he supposedly gets taken by his nanny Glenda in Nashville.

He has friends named Paris and Jefferson, and supposedly has an ex wife named Sara that passed away from cancer. All of them are fake.

All pictures were the same and he was a very striking young man. He likes to prey on older women and ask for cards or money. I finally realized how bad he was when he asked for 20k from me and started saying very hurtful things to me.

Please dont get caught in this scam, and do not send him money or pictures. You will never see him and he will keep coming up with reasons to steal your money.

Met Tyler Todd on dating site. He cancelled his profile saying he no longer needed it because he found me. Lives in Ohio but had to go to Russia to bid on drilling. Which of course he won but had to start work right away and not return to the states. Lost parents when he was in his late 20's, one son going to college in Africa, ex-wife passed. Been texting for a few months.

He loves me and wants to spend eternity with me, yeah sure. He sent many pictures but one had a different name on the shirt he was wearing. Greg Williams! I looked up this guy and he does work in the oil industry but lives about 20 miles from me. My family has been going through some trying times and I confronted him with my finding. He said this Greg is a fake. I did email this Mr Williams but he never responded.

He never asked for money until tonight. Needs to send his son money for school. Saying he doesn't want to bother me with his problem. Asked for $2000, I said no I don't have it. Then asked for $300 for his school meals. I said no cash but maybe a gift card, he agreed to an Amazon card. Then I find this site.

I was really considering buying the card. He calls me his Jewel. I have asked him to come clean and tell me who he really is but he insists the pictures are of him. I know they are not. I blocked him when I found the information but he found me through email and insists he is real. I need to block him again. How can he pretend to care about me and my family but won't come clean!

Robert Cooley

My mom confessed to me recently that she has been chatting with a man named Robert Cooley out of Tampa Bay, Florida. She said he approached her on FB messenger a couple of months ago. My mom is very private and reserved, which is why it took a while for this scammer to weasel himself into her daily life.

Once she began sharing his info, I immediately told her that he sounds like a scammer. She said he talks to her live on the phone, has made a video of his beautiful bay view home, is super attentive, and wants to meet her in person. The catch is, first he has to work on an oil rig for two months and then he will retire, at which time, they can be together. "Robert" is a widower and has no children.

Supposedly, he left for England to work on an oil rig in the North Sea. He texted her today and asked her to check on his bank account to verify his paycheck had been deposited because he was unable to access his account. My mom checked it and found there was a $21,000 deposit made into his account that had a $17,000,000 balance. I immediately started to research different scams online and came across this oil rig scam. We never even knew it was a thing but now we know!

I am disgusted by the actions of these low life scoundrels! Taking advantage of people the way they do is deplorable! I’m happy we uncovered the truth early on, but this jerk led my 67 year old mother in with the promise of a love and companionship.

I am so thrilled there is a platform out there to expose these awful people and hope some of them do get caught and are held accountable!There are so many of them out there!

Scam! Had agreed to meet up for coffee. Quickly became romantic texts and emails. Sent photos of him with his son and at his work. Sudden emergency the day before our meetup that his mother was in the hospital in Michigan. The next day asked for $12,000 for hospital as deposit. Then brought it down to $4000 next day saying he got $8000 of it.

Then when I still didn't take the bait, said he had to go straight to his big contract in Texas, Gulf of Mexico on an oil rig to inspect. Even sent me photos of him at an airport. Suddenly he needed and wouldn't say no to an itune card for his 16 year old son because he will miss him for 2 weeks and didn't want to disappoint the kid.

The smooth talker really used very sweet words and poetry. But scammer all the same. Thank God I had sense enough not to hand over any money, which I didn't even have, and he was told that from the start. Ladies, he is a great looking older gentlemen who starts by saying it has to be based on all honesty and no games, but he was the biggest player of all and he knew I was a recent widow.

Very articulate, perfect spelling and punctuation, European accent, although he claims he was raised in Germany then moved to Ohio in his teens. Wife passed away due to cancer. One daughter. Oh and he moved to my state (Idaho) because his wife had wanted to live here. So on POF he goes by Bill Newman.

I think you encountered the guy who’s been talking to me for almost 2 years and he’s from Exxon mobile. When I knew him 2 years ago he was in the Gulf of Mexico. He has got an accent and he said he’s from Germany and he has a son in boarding school in Lithuania. He’s name is not the same as you described him. He’s stealing the innocent people’s pictures. He always changed his name and he’s in different sites.

He’s a professional scammer and he has so many mules. I was not aware from the beginning when I knew him, and I thought he’s real and he’s very caring and always texting me many times a day and calling me and and said I love you and sending me emails. He calls me his wife and going to marry me and build his home with me as his family!

Well, I waited For a while till he asked me to send money to his son. I did it but Later on the request was for more money and ITunes, and he talked about money all the time! He asked me to get a loan for him and use my home to get a loan and also my car. He asked me if I had life insurance? Then I asked him so many questions about why he’s asking all of that!

Then his attitude towards me changed. But he still communicated and i gave him a chance to come home with me! I did try to send him money and I did it till the amount accumulated to 50k but he still needed money and can’t see me!

I told him that I cannot do it anymore because I am sick, and he then stopped talking to me and he called me poor and I have little money and I am stingy and broke. He then told me to find someone else to talk too!

I blocked him and I will never see my money again! Be careful ladies! The scammers are very good at manipulating and they are heartless!

They don’t care if you die, they only need your hard earned money!! 😡

SilverSingles scam
by: Anonymous

I had the same type of experience from SilverSingles. A man named Greg messages me then he says he already found someone on the site and would it be ok if he sends my profile info to his friend who isn’t on the site. Unfortunately I gave him my email and this person named Kenneth Weir contacts me, works for Exxon Mobile as a consultant/contractor. Very handsome man, divorced, looking for someone with a good heart.

First he’s in Houston at their headquarters for a week, meanwhile we are texting and he’s saying all the right things. Then he has to go to the Gulf of Mexico with his crew to a rig. I told a friend about this and she got me to this site, so when I finally asked him if he was playing me, he got all upset and saying I’m making a fool out of him.

Finally I say I thought he was scamming me and he was insulted and said goodbye. One of many red flags was I received roses from him and it was addressed to another woman. I don’t know how he got my address but they mixed us up.

Beware ladies, if they sound too good to be true, they are!!!!

Oil rig engineer stuck in Scotland
by: Feel dumb

I saw sooooo many of you ladies that like me, were suckered by a hunky charming man Curtis Brown. AKA: Kurt C. Friedrich. Born in Germany. Lives in Brooklyn New York. He gave me an address. I have a one way phone number because his unfortunately did not work right. But! I do have his friends number that yes does work and he had called me and left messages and vice versa.

Parents killed in accident in Germany when he was a young boy. Lived with Uncle in States. Went to college and and yes this guy is smart. But supposedly he Married a woman who later died of Breast cancer, they had 2 children who at this time, while he is stuck on rig in Scotland, are with a nanny. I notice now most scammers are using the word Nanny.

Assets are frozen until he can get back to the States and he would pay me back all monies I lent him. I unfortunately did send Amazon, Steam and iTunes cards. But when he asked for $4000 and threw a fit when I told him I did not have it, that was the end of the song and dance routine.

I admit, scam or not it was nice to wake up every morning with a special message from him. It was nice to be called beautiful. He always hoped myself and family were happy and healthy. He always made sure to say good morning or goodnight and he loved me. He did send me a very nice gift. I loved that he always sang to me. We did have a lot of laughs. He always said I was the type of woman every man dreamed of. A lot of beautiful words exchanged between the 2 of us. I do have a picture of him. I had several but when he got mad about the money I deleted all but one.

I have to ween myself off of him. My gosh he was good 6 months of so much love and fun. Why did he have to ask for the money. Part of me knew he was possibly scamming me, but part of me believed he truly cared. Too bad.

Ladies be careful. Protect yourselves. Protect your heart💔 .🤦

Also Oil Pipeline Designer Engineers!
by: Anonymous

The one scamming me wrote that he was one of these (Tony Wilson). Said he lived in Houston. We corresponded for several weeks (e-mails then phone). He has the most romantic way of writing (which reeled me in along with the handsome man in the photos he sent).

At our most romantic exchange, he asked for a $200.00 phone card from Walmart (because he had gone to Dubai and needed it to call me from there.) Looking up his job title on the Web I saw that these engineers make a salary of $100,000+ And, he needed ME to send him that card? lol

No, I did not. The whole experience hurt my feelings but NOT my pocketbook.

NEVER SEND MONEY! Ladies, be like me NOW and don't get so involved before you even meet the guy. I won't again!

Scammed for love and money
by: Anonymous

We started chatting August 24th. He got my number and we texted and chatted on the phone. He said that roaming charges were high so we should to a site called Hangouts. We were smitten with each other in every way. He asked me to transfer money from his off shore account to get money to an individual for a group of worker coming on the rig.

I transferred it for him for $25,000 out of his $3.5 million account. Things were going well until this week. Apparently the drill broke and he needed to buy a new one which was between $200,000 and $450,000. He asked me for $10,000 to front the transaction. I told him I thought that it was a scam as he had all the money in his account. He got very angry and wondered why I would not do this for him. He made me feel so badly as I did not have nor would not give the money to him.

His text two days later said that he could not understand why I would not do this, after all we shared. I did not respond to his text. I feel like I have been emotionally burned through his psychological warfare. These people work very hard and do well at manipulating people. I am very upset!!!

Grant Donald
by: Anonymous

Friended me on Facebook and I was able to see through him before he got anything from me, but he was smooth. I asked him to take a picture of himself right then and he sent me a picture and he told me how beautiful I was and how much he loved me and he said he was on the rig for 3 months then he would be home and wanted me to come to Miami to meet him and his granddaughter.


He said he was a widower and that his wife and son were killed in an airplane crash and that his sons girlfriend was pregnant and started using drugs and alcohol to deal with the loss and that he had taken his granddaughter to raise and that she was 13 year old. Living with his mother. After about 3 days he told me his granddaughter (who he also called his daughter) was having a birthday in 2 days. And that he hadn’t gotten her a gift before he left. He asked me to email her, and asked me for my email so he could give it to her and then gave me her email (amydonald57@gmail.com). She told me that she had asked for a pink bicycle and that she had had her computer stolen out of her locker at school and really need a new one. So I told him what she wanted for her BD, and he wanted me to get them and she would pick them up at the store and he would pay me back when he came home.

I said he could go on line and do that himself but he told me he was not allowed to go online from the rig, so I said then I will explain to Amy that you will get her gifts when he comes home. He tried to make me feel guilty about her not having a gift on her BD and said well maybe we could just get her a steam card. I said I would send her a $20.00 card and he was insulted and wanted me to get her a $300.00 card. I finally knew he was a scammer at this point and stopped all conversation and blocked him on all media.

Ladies be careful he is good. And uses his mother, daughter, granddaughter and also a stepsister.

James Jones from Norway on facebook
by: Anonymous

I met this scammer two days ago. First day I have no doubt about the story he told that he lost his wife and kid four years back, also lost his parents for years, and he has no siblings and even no friends in his facebook friend list.

He is 47 yrs old, good looking and is Chief engineer in oil dig industry. He kept asking questions about my family that really alarmed me. Second day, I asked him to show some pictures with someone else or pictures in his workplace, but he couldn't do that. Today, he sent me one picture where he is in uniform and another one with his late wife. I don't know where he got these pictures from but I'm sure he is not the real engineer since I found his friends from facebook are hidden and most are from Mumbai India. This does not match what he said with no friends. Then I told him I don"t believe him and don't want to talk with him any more, and afterwards I blocked his account. It looks like a similar story with other comments here,so I thought to just share my experience to remind ladies to be more careful with an invitation from strangers on social media.

Hi! Sorry for my English. One month ago, a man called Joshua Scott starts a conversation with me by Instagram. After, he asked me for WA but I did not, then he started with hangouts. He said that he was in Emirates working as an engineer supervisor.

He didn't ask me for any money but he wants to visit my city. He explained to me that he had a child and was alone because his wife died 3 years ago. Finally, I blocked him and I couldn't see him on Instagram.

They all look for names that westerners know to make themselves look like they are American or English or a real person looking for love but
it is all crap and a lot of them are putting names on Pinterest to catch their victims
and they go after woman mainly and in their sixties.

Some of the scammers names that tried to scam me are:

Greg Maddox he was the first and I did not know about the world wide scammers and he scammed more that $50K AU out of me.

The next was Robinson Nelson but he only got a couple of iTune cards from me.

The third one is Alex Hughes who is still being very persistent to get money out of me and he wants Steam Cards to the value of $900.00 US and
tells me he is going to die as he has no food and his daughter 16 years is very ill and without medication and she will die.

I don't believe anything he is saying, so please all ladies and gents be very careful of the scum of the earth wanting money from you as they tell lie after lie (all lies)

I met him 4 weeks ago and is the same story he told me, 40 years old, only child, one daughter, but he told me, he is from Sweden. I met him because one friend of his I met in the app tandem named Robert said me, Steven wanted to practice Spanish.

Now I feel so stupid, and now I understand why to never correct any of my mistakes with the English language. I am from Mexico, and he insisted to come to visit to me.

He said he loved me, and he wanted a serious relationship. I felt something is wrong. He sent me a video with the dog named Bailey.

I really fell angry and mad.

Re: Steven Varan, Chevron, Netherlands, Engineer
by: Anonymous

I met him on XING.com 2 months ago. Here is his update info:

Steven, 40, Cancer, Houston, Chevron, Consultant Engineer, 10 yrs old daughter without name, lives in London, still living in Houston for over 3 yrs, has French Bulldog named Bailey, wants serious relationship, marriage, and only wanted to text on WhatsApp: +1 (281) 595-9018. The number: 832-947-5230 is now suspended, he said it's because some crazy lady stalk him in fb and keep calling/texting him.

He Has Facebook, Instagram via good search of his handle @StevenVaran40 and @Steven.Varan.7, and also has a professional resume on XING(dot)com, and says he is the only child from parents, father died, Catholic, Christian, has poor English and grammer, goes to London to visit his daughter whenever he has time.

Why I found this page: we have been chatting for nearly 2 months. At first, I was curious about him. Then very soon he told me how much he loved me and want to be with me. It sounds too good to be true but obviously I did want to trust him.

Till recently he told me he wants to visit me and be with me all the time. He bought me gifts for our first meet up. Couple of days ago, he told me he arranged the "diplomatic delivery" to me with those gifts, important documents of his and USD 10K cash for hotel rental during his stay. That's weird. I told him to courier cash is illegal but he insisted. I felt something wrong so I googled about the diplomatic delivery and found that's a parcel scam. To sending so called important goods and cash or jewelry by diplomats the receiver must pay a high shipments fee / customs clearance before getting the parcel. It can be from hundreds of dollars to tens of thousand.

I don't really know what to think, so I decided to dig deeper by using his name and cellphone numbers to make the search. Finally, I found this page and found the guy Jerffson Scabora in fb, the person whom photos and videos have been stolen by this scammer. I blocked Steven Varan in any channel I have.

I feel ashamed and stupid that I fell for him. Lucky I still have an ounce of sense to make the search, although I received the courier service notifying me his parcel will arrive in a week but I haven't paid anything and will not pay anything. He should be noticed by now that his cover is blown. Hopefully, he will just leave me alone.

Good Luck and Stay Vigilant!

To: Just My Opinion
by: Anonymous

I was talking with a guy for about a year and a half when he asked me to come for a visit. He was still pretending to be a white man that was on an oil rig in Nigeria (after being in the Gulf of Mexico and the North Atlantic!).

He really wanted me to come and knew I was skeptical as I had been for 18 months.

He finally revealed himself by pictures and video chat so I knew it was really a Nigerian man.

I was not planning on going either way and he seemed "hurt" by it. After a few months, he asked me for my phone number (we had been in contact through messenger on F/B) so he could use it for Plenty of Fish. I absolutely refused to do that. Why would a man that professed his love like he did, want to hook up with other women using MY number. He got angry and told me to never contact him again. So I did not. After a couple of months went by he contacted me acting all innocent like that had never happened. Once again he begged me to come.

Sadly, he is still trying to scam in subtle ways. Hinting around about being poor. His phone is not working. Oh, he does have an I Phone! Being so poor, wonder how he could afford that.

While you are right, they are not all monsters. But they are all scammers.

I really like him and he has revealed a lot about himself but nothing about the scamming. And I also believe that he is still chatting up other unsuspecting women using other identities and possibly his own.

The big reveal isn't really so surprising. I have a friend that was talking with a guy that also revealed himself and she knows a woman that had it happen to her. In both cases, they still tried to get money from each of them.

I never sent him anything and do not have any intention of doing so.

Oh, he also asked me to invest in his new business venture. $10,000!!

And his birthday is coming. Asked me what I was getting him.

So it never ends.

Just curious. Did the two that revealed themselves stop asking for money?

Just my opinion
by: Anonymous

It has been a year now since I was first contacted by my first scammer. I have played the game with quite a few. But in Feb of this year I was contacted by one. I became interested in the person behind the picture. I knew he was a scammer as his voice definitely not Italian.

I played for a few months and then I started pressuring him on his real identity. He eventually gave in. He was nervous. I was patient. After he finished with his story he then asked me if I was going to block him. I asked why would I. He said because he was a scammer and a Nigerian. I have no problem with race or Nationality of anyone and told him so. We have a relationship and became engaged.

The one thing I have learned from him because I have been very curious is that yes there are a lot of scammers in Nigeria but the main one you see with the guys laying around in a room on computers are coming out of Ghana. Nigeria doesn't have the power stability.

Scamming is definitely a crime and don't give your money to them. All I am saying is not all are monsters. I have had 2 reveal themselves.

I fell for the scam, unfortunately. He scammed £450 out of me. Met on words with friends. He was playing under the name of HenryBrooks222. Don't know his real name. Charming man, kind and caring says all the right things and we chatted for 3 months. He told me he earned a big wage on the oil rigs (money isnt important to me so it meant nothing). Promises of a happy future, big house etc.

He tried to scam me again but I didn't fall for it a 2nd time saying he needed money to get his machine fixed otherwise he couldn't work. After doing some searching on the net with the photos he had sent me, I found out who's identity he has stolen.

Nicole Andrew
by: Anonymous

I approached a nice looking woman on Match.com called Nicole Andrew and we started up a conversation. We shortly moved to Gmail Hangouts and swapped Whatsapp numbers. Our discussions commenced and all was perfectly normal with a dinner date agreed. A couple of days later she claimed that she needed to go to Paris and had to cancel dinner. At that point I knew straight out something was not right. But I decided to play her game. We kept talking as if nothing had happened and I wrote an email about what I wanted and asked her if she would be my "special girlfriend" to find love. She agreed immediately and deleted her Match.com profile.

We continued to talk and she gave details of her twin sons school. It was in Liverpool a long way from the CBD where she said she lived and I asked why such a commute and she said they were boarders. I called the school citing a family emergency and they knew of no such boys. Her photos she sent were all from a well gardened house not an apartment in the CBD.

It was all adding up against her so I questioned her flight as she said an airline that didn't fly to Australia, after some time she came back with what would have been the correct stopover city if you were to fly that airline. Off to Paris and upon arrival Whatsapp messages flowed from CDG and off to Hotel Declic well why not leave a loving message for her arrival?

So I Googled it and called to leave a message and they had no such reservation, check it please I asked and they did, no Australians due to check in at 0200 that day. She spoke from the hotel and went about a couple of days business. I called the hotel again asking to leave a message for her. They had no such guest.

Then an email, distress! Purse lost at Gare du Nord could I send her unlocked phone a Whatsapp message seeking to find it while she called a small bank in Sydney to suspend the app. I sent a Whatsapp message and soon after received a message in French stating they had her purse found at the Gare du Nord and were on their way to La Rochelle the purse had two cards, phone and drivers licence with Nicole Andrew name. Also a French Whatsapp number to contact.

She became increasingly frantic as bills were due and asked for 8,500 Euros and I said I would think about it. Five minutes later a Whatsapp message in French stating they were in La Rochelle and would be back in Paris next week arrived. I passed on the message and she said she couldn't wait as she wanted to be with me.

I agreed to lend her the money and asked for payment details and final confirmation of her address in Sydney. She stalled at the address in Sydney so I said no address, no money. Shortly after an address arrived and Google revealed 283 Kent Street Sydney as a branch of Westpac a major Australian bank with no residential premises in the office tower.

Two accounts were provided one in Paris and the other in the UK. With funds to be split between them. The account details are as follows:

Bank name:La banque postele
IBAN... FR53 10011 00020 7556191360D 42
Account owner.. Mme QUEEN UHUANGH
Account number: 7556191360
Address: 34, RUE DE LA FEDERATION, 75015 PARIS, France

Amount: 4000euro

----------------------------

Bank Name : First Direct

Name: Ingrid Monk

Account Number: 93031802

IBAN: GB68HBUK40477593031802

4500euro

I put all this together in an email and used some colorful language to describe what a bunch of amateurs they were and that as I had their bank account details and it was the weekend I was going to withdraw all funds possible and send them to another scammers account in Melbourne Australia that I had picked up on a previous scamming attempt.

I am awaiting their reply and though it took my time I wasted theirs and I like doing that so if you hear of her and she is staying at the Hotel Declic she is a scam.

I Knew a "Tony", too.
by: Anonymous

Hi! So sorry and sad for your loss! I use to think those deceived on The Web were naïve and too gullible. NOT ANYMORE. I empathize with you because I am now, one, too. However, I did not lose any money because I just won't do that without meeting someone first. This Tony (Wilson), 56, claimed to be an oil pipe line designer engineer living in Houston, Texas but right now working in Dubai. He sent five photos, quite handsome. His mother from India. His wife died five years ago in car crash.

We corresponded for several weeks back and forth. He wrote very loving words to me also a widow saying he wanted a marriage for life. At his most loving point he asked me to send him a $200.00 phone card so that he could call me from Dubai.??? These engineers make $1000,000+ salary a year and he needs ME to send him a "cheap $200.00 phone card from Walmart"? lol

When I said "no" ALL of his loving words and thoughts were GONE instantly in a New York second! I was literally in shock. His few words after that were totally about that card and how wrong I was not to send it. I told him NOT to scam other women and to get spiritually saved. I will not get so involved again before meeting a man. Who knows WHO this Tony Wilson is? He could even be a woman! He could be a poor married man with six children!

I learned a cheap but valuable lesson and I hope that you have, too, from reading about my experience. This has not wiped out my belief in love.

Please do not let your faith in love be destroyed either!

Tony/Anthony James
by: Anonymous

First and foremost I have provided the FBI and my local police with all this information. He also will use the name Tony/Anthony James and Robert Looks all in the same scam. Very attractive, two boys 7 and 15 in boarding school in CA. Wife cheated. His first question to me was about my net worth? His tactics are textbook scammers, civil engineer get new contract leaves for Turkey, gets in car accident, police take visa and passport and require large sum of money to return it. 23,000/

I refused to pay that so the amount kept getting reduced. He then was sent to jail and was released and then needs money for food, phone, hotel, attorney you name it. I had never even heard of scammers before this nightmare. I feel so stupid like I must have been living under a rock.

He even lied to me about lying. He would get very upset and call me names and tell me I would die and all sorts of horrible things when I wouldn't agree to his demands. This was a very expensive life lesson. He claimed to be a civil engineer working on a rig but never said where or with what company.

Simon Foster Scammer Petroleum Engineer
by: Anonymous

Hi ladies, After meeting a guy in the conectingsingles.com dating site, I found out today that He is a scammer. We have been chatting on Hangouts for nearly 3 months and He always was romantic and beautiful words to me, and He even said he dreamt of me being his wife.

He describe himself as a widow as his wife passed away after battling cancer, and he also said he is the only child and his dad also passed away years ago, so his greatest fear is to be lonely with no one in life. He said he feels very lonely and would like to create a family with me and my son. I am a single mom, so I suppose an easy victim for him.

During this 3 months he never mentioned anything of asking for money, he actually was acting in the opposite way, just telling me that he is in a Rig in the North Sea, near Sweden. He was making plans to come to live to my town after he finishes his 6 months contact with BP.

WATCH OUT LADIES!!!

When he thought I was in love with him, He started to say he was having financial issues and had to order a loan from the Bank of America and also asked for some money from friends in order to finish the project on time so he can come to my town and live here. LIER!!!

Please don't trust him if you ever find him on the internet somewhere. I got to discover his real profile and Simon Foster is a fake name, his real name is Hector Duenas, and he is a pastor in BBB, Bible Baptism Church in Miami. He has 2 boys, and also does daily videos talking about God and the Bible.

He asked me for money, and he first asked for 7000USD, then I said sorry but I can't lend you money and he dropped down the amount to 2000USD, and I said NO, and then he tried with a little amount of 500USD.

When I said I had caught him, he was embarrassed and said Sorry, but my younger brother is dying and I can't see him die, I need the money for his kidney treatments. ANOTHER LIE AGAIN!!

As I found his real name and his links on Instagram and Facebook and also the church he runs.

Fake profile: Simon.Foster/Widow/Only chikd/His.mom in Aarhus (Denmark) Petroleum Engineer.

Real Profile: Hector Duenas/3 sons/Pastor in Miami in a church

Oil Rig Engineer and Construction Contractor Justin Mickens
by: Anonymous

Currently goes by the name Garry James, also uses Garry Watson. Says he's an oil rig engineer from Denver. Followed me for almost a year on Instagram, so I finally accepted his friend request. Tells me he's been hurt badly by women and wants to find his real match, and wants to get to know me. So we talked for a while to get to "know" each other. In other words I tell him the truth and tells me lies. Then all of a sudden he's called to Dubai to bid on a job. Could be his early retirement, so we can be together.

So he says he's "working" on a bid and tells me he messed up and "forgot" to get a steam card so he can download a manual for his bid. Says he can't get one there and wants me to get a $100 steam card and send him the info.

Girls THIS is always a scam!!!

I looked it up on the internet. So don't fall for it AND also don't fall for the I'm sending you money to deposit in your bank account so you can send it to me scam either. The name of this person is Justin Mickens from California, supposedly!!! Protect yourselves and do not give anyone you don't personally know you account info, or buy a steam card for them. I caught on, I want you to also!!!

Philipp Hoch
by: Anonymous

Met him on OurTime.com. From Berlin, Germany and moved to the U.S. 3 years ago because his wife had cancer. After she died he stayed here but hadn’t worked since his wife passed. He’d been traveling. He was leaving for two weeks to work on an onshore oil rig in the Philippines.

His parents had passed in the same year when he was 32 years old. His wife was American and died of lung cancer. Said he was a Christian man and was just starting to date again.

He uses Hangouts. After he was in the Philippines for two weeks he said his German bank account had been frozen due to illegal transactions in the Philippines. He needed money to pay his workers because they had quit.

Unfortunately I sent this guy money twice, and always cash through a Chase Bank Account. I asked him for a copy of his passport and his US address. The address he gave was legitimate but when I called to see if he had an apartment there they had never heard of him. He then told me it was under his wife’s name and I said no, there were no Hochs in the complex. He was quite incensed I had called them.

I have filed with the FBI, the local police department and am in contact with Chase Bank as I believe this money is being laundered. Chase told me they didn’t take cash deposits so I told them to contact the two banks from which I had sent the money, I had receipts for everything.

I also kept every conversation and email from him. I doubt I will ever see the money again but it is going to be investigated by Chase Bank as a fraud case.

Janet Adamson
by: Anonymous

I was approached on a popular dating site by a young 31 year old woman claiming to be in Sydney. Shortly after we started talking on Gmail she flew to Texas for her ailing Grandma and to finalize her late fathers will. I knew it was a scam from the start as she said she worked in a salon in Sydney and lived in The Rocks, when pushed she said in a big apartment building, when pushed further she said by the museum. Well I got no address and there are no large apartment buildings except one in The Rocks and it is the other side of the suburb from the museum. Her name is Janet Adamson or "Mimi" so I played along with her having had three other gold scams attempted on me from that site.

Soon it was her father had left 5000 ounces of gold but it was with a company that could be found via Google to be seized by the government of Ghana. She claimed she had been given permission to access the gold and is on her way to Ghana to claim it. I am currently deeply in love with whoever it is talking to me and the pictures became more erotic as we "fell" in love.

I'll give them credit as they are taking their time and investing a lot into me and they are taking my bait. But they are making mistakes. The images of the woman have been used before! The photo proof of the gold can be found on Google with a bit of effort. But the big one was when I was questioning the gold they slipped up and started saying "you mean here in Ghana" and the like when they were supposed to be in Texas.

They slipped up and spoke directly from Ghana. I'll update when I dump them but I am sure they'll be not happy when I do!

To oil rigs scammers
by: Anonymous

I think we’re in the same boat, when you said this guy was from Germany? Hmmm, he’s changing his story and the pictures and his profile. All your stories and you’re statement are similar. He’s good in English writing and German - yes that was he is. And he likes to talk about money and bad things happened in the rigs and he needs you to send him money.

Mind you he has many mules accounts! You have to save it and report him. With me he told me he got a son of 19 years old and in boarding school and he’s from California in Beverly Hills but his phone he gave me is registered in a different name and he’s using different telephone numbers when he calls me. Sometimes, I can hear the roosters are crowing in the background and men talking in African language. I was scammed of 50.000. He’s very eloquent of what he’s doing and women can be taken easily. I had doubts with him at the beginning but It takes a while for him to persuade me to gave him my money because I’m telling you that he will made you believe that he’s real!

He’s a blood sucker and he will suck you’re blood till the last drop! I learned to ignore him now and not listening to what he’s asking! I am really sorry for the women that he victimized. He’s very elusive and vigilant that’s why he changed his story and he’s using different names and pictures of innocent people.

Take care! Thank you

Oil Rig Scammer
by: Anonymous

I was recently scammed out of $26,000 of my hard-earned money by a man who goes by the name of Adam Muller Scott. I met him on Facebook where he used the name Adams Long. He says he is from Berlin, Germany and is fluent in German and English. According to Mr. Scott, he was born in Berlin but moved to Australia when about 12 years old with his mother upon the death of his father. He later returned to Germany, married a Danish woman, and had one son and one granddaughter. His wife, son and daughter-in-law died in a car crash in Germany and he moved to Atlanta, GA in the US about 5 years ago.

Mr. Scott told me that he is a drill contract engineer or rig manager and that he recently accepted a contract with Exxon Mobil in the North Sea off the coast of Scotland. His original request for money was in the amount of $12000 was for purchasing electrically heaters for his workers on the rig. After much debate he eventually convinced me to send the funds to an account in California.

He flew from Atlanta to the rig in the North Sea and we continued to converse on WhatsApp and Hangouts for several weeks. He was very polite, intelligent, affectionate and attentive. Mr. Scott sent me a set of sheets and a bouquet of roses for my birthday. His messages were filled with poems, links to favorite songs, quotations, and sweet touching words. He was extremely persuasive and I was taken in completely.

His second request for funds came when he had been working on the rig for about two weeks. He said that on a previous contract job the company he worked for went bankrupt and he had lost approximately 2.6 million dollars. A lawyer contacted him offering to help him recover his income but there would be an initial fee of $14000. After much debate he convinced me to cover the fee and I sent the funds to a bank account in England.

Soon after I learned about oil rig romance scams and it has taken some time for me to adjust to the reality of my situation. I don’t consider myself to be that gullible so I have say this man is a true professional and very very smooth. With some research I was able to find his photo on an anti-scammer site and find his identical story on another site.

Ladies, this guy is the best. He says he has a granddaughter as his only living relative who is cared for by a Nanny when he is at sea. Her name is Lisa. He will be 64 years old on November 1st, 2019. He is not handsome but has a very friendly countenance, with blue eyes, a receding hairline, and goatee. He supplied me with photos in his work gear, on the rig, and with his teenage granddaughter.

His requests for money became increasingly urgent. He wanted me to fly him home then he was starving and needed money for foodstuffs. You get the picture. He encouraged me to use MoneyGram, Western Union, and Bitcoin. I finally saw the situation for what it is.

I’ve been scammed and want to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

Lives in Baltimore, MD, widow and one daughter (17) boarding school in the Netherlands. He claims to be Dutch American, mom has dementia and living in nursing home.

Two weeks into chatting on Instagram he got ready to leave for his ship tanker job transporting crude oil from Saudi Arabia to China and asked me to chat via Google Hangouts. I continued, knowing this was a scam.

He called me from google hangouts a few times. Two weeks into his travels he states that he forgot to send money to pay for a "field trip" for his daughter and that he cannot handle the transaction from the ship. He asked me to render payment. I immediately blocked and deleted.

He is using photos of a very handsome guy, including pictures of the guy's daughter which makes me irate. She is obviously under 18.

British Petroleum Company

I was talking to this guy and supposedly he worked for the British Petroleum Company off the Gulf of Mexico, has one daughter, wife deceased. Asked for money every two weeks and said he was coming home. The day he was to have come home his daughter got mugged and ended up in a coma.

Needed $2,000 for her which I don’t have. Then he needed $500 to come home until he got to his bank because he didn’t want to arrive in town without any money on him. I finally caught on, but I knew long before but I didn’t want to accept it.

He promised me a very good like etc. so I called him on it and he told me I was nothing but a fool. I blocked him and deleted him.

So please don’t accept any friends request from anyone who works for the British Petroleum Company.

He’s on a oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, he’s retiring on his last job netting him 10,000,000.00! I’m the love of his life, he wants my phone number and will relocate to be with me.

It’s been 2 weeks, he’s quick but I’m on to him. Finding this site was great. I told him I’m about to come into lots of money haha, I’m just waiting for it.

Met on WWFs and he quickly moved to hangouts!

Apparently his daughter wants him to marry🙄

He only has my first name and will get nothing more, he’s pushing me for my cell number. Nope!!!

His photo is a good looking older man with a well trimmed beard and glasses, wearing a hat having a cocktail

Wow, what scammers, I call him sweetie but feel nothing towards him. Let’s see what fun I can have with this loser.

Well I knew it wouldn’t take him long to tell me he loves me and ask for money. He said it would cost him $3200 to get off the rig to come home to be with me. I told him no I don’t have that kind of money, so he asked a friend to help him, and the friend supposedly gave him $2000. Asked if I could come up with $1200, and I told him no, I am a working widow that lives paycheck to paycheck.

So I told him to stay in the rig and work out his contract that way it wouldn’t cost him anything.
I just asked him if he knows a person named Chris Anderson. I haven’t gotten any response as of yet.

Jeffrey Stephens
by: Anonymous

I was contacted by Jeffrey Stephens a couple of days ago. I do a lot on Facebook regarding Brexit in the U.K, and I am passionately against it as I want us to stay in the E.U. He commented on some of my posts, and I was very wary right from the start, particularly when he started bombarding me with messages, seemed quite needy and got very chummy very quickly which made me uncomfortable.

I did some research, but this page didn't come up. He said he was based in Rotterdam and worked on oil rigs, one side of his family was of German descent, his picture looked reasonable and included a dog. I found him quickly very tiresome and he wanted more time than I wanted to give a complete stranger, so I was going to sever contact with him today, but didn't need to as Facebook did it for me and blocked his messages saying he was an abusive contact.

Thank God for that, won't make that mistake again and my gut instincts were right. So please don't fall for it he's a shyster and a scammer who needs prosecution.

Please look at the other recent postings.
by: Kevin B

Ladies,

Ever notice how many of these men have first names as first, middle and last names. A sign of a scammer. Really there are last names like LARRY. An obvious fake. The oil rig engineer is NEVER RESPONSIBLE FOR BROKEN EQUIPMENT. All rigs have insurance for a reason.

If they say they cannot access their funds, unless they are criminals, already. The hiring company insist they have direct deposit with their own account.. They are generally off shore for a maximum of 3 weeks, then on land for 4 weeks before going back to the rig.

They live off of your money, I tune cards, stream cards, and when you receive a package from them, you discover it costs you more than they said on shipping, call the cops or you will be implicated for money laundering.

And finally, I darn near fell out of my chair, when asked by one of you if you knew a man named Daven Port? REALLY? A Davenport is another name for a COUCH?

None of the names, pics, sad circumstances with a kid still around, it is all to suck you in emotionally, they are all lies.

Rise up, wake up and tell them you are not interested. Some of you actually do not tell them no, because they will get mad. Really? You are all better than that. God Bless.

I am also talking to a man called Frank, Frank Dennis or Denis, he is in Italy on an oil rig. Did he mention about getting time off to go see you? He has to me, and he had me contact the vacation office to let them know he wanted to come back and spend time with me. He has a 14 year old daughter in boarding school in Texas. He lives in Houston, he’s of German decent.

He hasn’t asked for anything yet, but I’m waiting for the ball to drop and then I’ll block him. He’s a scammer, he’s widowed, has a child in boarding school, and works on an oil rig. Really bad broken English.

They change their name, they talk to more than one woman at a time. They tell you they love you, they promise you everything. They don’t and won’t. You’ll never meet them.

In fact, there are some very good boarding schools in TN - Baylor, McCallie & St. Andrews. Indiana also has Howe Military, LaLumiere and the Indiana Academy.

I do not consider myself a "scammer expert" and I think everyone that comments on this site has had experiences to discuss. Most of us realize what they are. Some are wondering and do not want to believe it.

I had been in touch with one for two years who finally revealed his true self with video chats as well as his name and where he lives, and I have learned a lot about how they operate.

I never gave him any money nor would I. I became intrigued by this entire situation and am a frequent reader and make many comments here on this site.

I warn all women that think they may have found the one real one out there - do not believe it. All they want is money. They have no emotion for us at all. It is pretend. I did meet a woman on here that also had one reveal himself. They became friends and more and she actually flew to Nigeria and married him. Was his motive money! YES, of course.

The man that was talking to you when he opened his mouth was always talk about money and iTunes cards! I knew this guy 2 years ago and I thought that he’s real! I believed him about what he’s dealing in the rigs. He made me have oaths with him like his wife. I don’t have any idea what he was up to!

Then later he had many requests about money and iTunes cards! He even asked me to get a loan and pawn my car and if I have a house he asked me to use it for a loan! He also asked me if I have insurance. I told him I don’t own anything and I can’t get a loan because my credit is not good! But I gave him money gradually. He called me stingy! Lately, he asked me to call his company to request his vacation but I ignored him and he got angry with me and we have arguments and he told me to find another man to talk with!

I told him that I don’t need a weak man like him because I am a strong woman. I noticed also that he changed his phone number all the time! All of his phone numbers are California from San Jose, Pasadena and Los Angeles. When I checked his name I couldn’t find anything except the famous man in YouTube. He is not using his real name and he’s using different pictures not himself and that’s why he cannot do video calls.

I asked him many times but he’s very upset about it! I don’t know how many women he fooled. He told me that he has one son only called Tony. You can report him one day by God’s grace he will be caught! He’s an elusive and eloquent cyber criminal.

Ladies he’s very good at entertaining women and he will strip your bank account and leave you with nothing!

If you can’t give him money he will make you guilty and break your heart!

He gave me the name after chatting about our middle names. There was a Joseph Curtis Brown on FB, different picture. I should have listen to the Pit in my stomach instead of my heart, and under the impression of trying to help him get his contract money, which there was no such thing.

Romancing me and another woman on becoming engaged. Yes, called him on it, yes I'm a senior, I again thought I was helping him. I sent a check to a 3rd party, after the check cleared. He's asking for not 1 but 2 Iphones. Constantly asking for small amounts of money, Itunes cards, oh he's out there, I'm following this blog and another scamming blog 'Faking it' etc.

Has he said he was raised by his uncle yet and he's a good cook? Very charming, oh are you his soul mate? It all came to a head this past Jan when he wanted to send me a parcel. Oh I can keep $50 thousand. No I learned the hard way .

Now claims he is widowed. Wife passed with Breast Cancer. He had 2 children. I have pictures of him and children supposedly.

Unfortunately I have spent money on steam, iTunes and Amazon cards. Claims one of his crew members fell and hurt his leg. Had to be flown to England. He and rest of crew stuck on Rig in middle of sea until they can get $4000. To get to England themselves and fly to New York.

He knows I have no money. He knows I have no credit. Very handsome if this is indeed him. Soft spoken and sings to me. I am not sure what to think at this point. He supposedly is German. His name is Curtis Brown.

He has asked me for Steam cards to stay in contact and also says he’s short of money for oil pumps. Initially asked me for 10k to cover them. I don’t have that. Then asked me for 1k as he’s raised the rest. I’m so confused by this but several red flags. He keeps asking me to trust him. He will not send a current pic of himself.

Contacted me through Hinge. Gave me his number right away. Asked me to download WhatsApp because it's easier to talk while he is in a different country for work. Seemed fishy. Found his name on this site several times.

RE: CHRISTIANG BERGE
by: Anonymous

To the lady or ladies talking to Christiang Berge, I think I know who he really is. I know they all use the same sob story with different names and even though he did not use Christiang Berge with me, he used a variation of the name. Additionally, I know his real name and where he lives in Nigeria.

Have you ever spoke with him? I know a way we can be sure it is the same guy. Not that it matters, because we all know that they are scamming liars. But it would be so cool to actually catch him in the act of professing his deep love and God bringing us together and growing old together and all the other BS they spew.

Let me know by responding here and we can exchange emails through this site. I am very interested in pursuing this story. Oh, and NO I never sent him one penny of my hard earned money. And he asked countless times. And he will ask you.

Thanks.

Your story is very familiar, last year someone asked me to receive the package from the guy whos is a contractor in the Gulf of Mexico. He found me in Instagram I became friend with him. He said he’s from Beverly Hills in California,
He has a son in the boarding school in Lithuania and he told me he’s from Germany studied there and came to America in his early twenties.

He said he’s mom died with cancer and his wife died in a car accident! He asked me to receive his package to be delivered in my house. The delivery company is swift courier. He told me that the box contained $2,000.000 or more plus his documents and stocks inside the box. The courier delivery told me that I have to pay for the clearance of $12,000. I refused to pay because I didn’t have the money to pay! Then
he told me to pay the storage of $3000 but yet I didn’t have money. He told me to pay $1,800 then the package will be delivered. I did pay even though I am struggling financially but after I paid the amount the package was never delivered.

I think that’s the scam strategy to get some money from the victim. These scammers are very creative to get money from their victims.

Please ladies don’t accept any packages from anyone because it’s going to give you lots of trouble! Thank you!

To the person who posted about a man with a German accent well this man sounds familiar but just a different name and he scammed me out of my money and it went all to Nigeria. He is nothing but a liar and nothing that comes out of his mouth is the truth so all I can say to you is block this sorry excuse for a human being and make a police report out on him.

He is so persistent now his daughter is very ill and needs medication and the courier is sending the parcel to me and then the next is the courier company asks for 14700.00 Pound to have the parcel sent to me. I emailed the courier back and said it was a scam. Michael from the couriers emailed me and said he has gone and a customs officer will take a video of the parcel and send it to me.

Please see below info. The amount is 0.70% of 2,100,000.00 which is 14,700.00 pounds.

Hello Sue,

Your package with tracking number HQB_5D7413B1183F5 have been placed on hold with the Israel custom, below is the reason for custom hold on your package.

What are customs regulations in United Kingdom,
Understanding customs procedures in the UK is quite straightforward as no customs charges should apply when transporting goods or cash package from one UK country to another, Additionally, There are of course some exceptions when the goods are subject to consumer taxes (which is the case with alcohol, tobacco, oil) or when it comes to shipping goods that are restricted or forbidden. This is why we kindly advise you to always check our comprehensive list of prohibited and restricted items if you’re unsure about the types of items you can ship.
When failing to comply with the restrictions, sending such items can result in a package stuck in customs for quite some time.
As stated before, customs regulations don’t normally differ for shipments from one UK country to another, however, when shipping restricted items or items of higher value from a UK member country to a non-UK country, various additional paperwork is needed. Moreover, be aware that in this case, restrictions for sending tobacco or alcohol are stricter than when shipping within the Asia zone. Additional charges are also applicable for cash valued over 100,000.00 Pounds. As a general rule, duties do not need to be paid for goods valued lower than 100,000 Pounds, although they may be subject to import VAT and special taxes payment.
Note: the package with tracking number HQB_5D7413B1183F5 have been placed on hold since it is valued over 100,000 Pounds, the receiver have to pay a fee for custom tax customs, clearance fee or customs handling fee of 0.70% the value of the parcel, for processing all the necessary documentation before the package can be sent to the receiver.

How does the customer find out about his package stuck in customs?
A customer would most likely learn about his parcel being stuck in customs by checking the tracking system. If the parcel hasn’t moved for a longer period of time, this normally indicates that it’s stuck somewhere. This could therefore be an indicator that your package has indeed stopped moving because of customs.

Thanks for using our EasyWay Express courier service, do contact us if you need any further assistance with your package.

Christiang Berge
by: Anonymous

I had a gut feeling and am so pleased I found this site! I met Christiang on POF dating site.
He says he is 50, widowed, no children and on a rig off the coast of Florida and Tampa. As I am English, I have way of knowing whether this is is true?!

Anyway, he said that he was born in Norway, moved to S Africa after his mother was accused of his father’s murder and did all of his schooling there. He is the chief engineer on the rig, in charge of 12 men. Calls me his queen, very religious, believes God has brought us together, wants to grow old with me so you get the gist! I had a feeling from the minute he asked me to go to hangouts.

His grammar lets him down and his repetitive paragraphs in emails. As yet he has not asked for money but I have sent him a snapshot of this thread where someone else mentioned him as a Caring Christian, as that was his name on POF.
I await his response and will keep you all updated!

Thank you for keeping me from making a very big mistake 😊

No love .. all lies , don’t trust
by: Anonymous

Hi, I m reading through all you comments, please
don’t send money, they tell you lies, all is made up. Nothing is real. They manipulate you, it’s a psychological trick, they are good in what they do.

When you find one on a page which costs nothing to be on it, it is probably a scam. When you want someone seriously searching for love go on dates where you can see the man. Be aware, they use you, they say everything you want to hear, they are not real. For them its a job. I wish we could talk to each other and support each other.

Don’t feel ashamed to talk with someone about this when you have doubts. It is a scam. Please send no money !!!!

I think you’re dealing with the guy that scammed me. He’s been talking to me till now but I’m not giving anymore money. I gave him almost 50k but always have excuses after you gave him money! He will tell you that he loves you and marry you and you’re his soulmate and love of his life. He will tell you that he’s going to hurt or kill himself if he’s not married to you!

Guess what all the money I sent him goes to Nigeria. He has a German accent, he’s name to me is different but it sounds him of your descriptions when you’re telling that he needs money to repair his machine or crane or there’s an accident in the rigs and he fell in the water or hurt his leg.

There’s a lots of BS he will tell you! At this time he sounds sick and he’s asking me to call his company to requests his vacation to be with me but I ignored him! I told him that since he’s retiring he does not need to request a vacation. I know that the company is not legitimate and I know that when I call that fake company will request an enormous amount of money and if the money will sent he will never contact you.

I learned my lessons. He will never show up! Please don’t give him any money and attention and his name is not what you think, becausez he gave me the name of the famous person I found out in YouTube. I only pray for him that one day he will be caught! He’s a big eloquent scammer and he works with Nigeria 419 and he claimed that he’s a contractor in the Gulf of Mexico. I know he has a lots of different names in different sites and apps!

Be careful because you’re very smooth talkers

Has anyone had contacts with an oil rig contractor, by the name of Tony Graysonwayne, met him on words with friends, lives in Rochester, NY. He needed 20.000 to fix the crane on his ship, to finish the work, or else he was not going to get paid, but he was able to pay his laborers, but now no money to come home.

I sent him 3000.00 to come home, then there was an accident on the small boat, 2 guys were killed, Tony ended up in the water, lost his wallet, and money, injured his foot, now he is stuck somewhere in the gulf of Saint Lawrence, he is constantly asking me to buy steam cards for the internet.

Does he sound familiar to anyone, tells me he loves me, I am his soul mate, he is from Germany with a German accent.

by: Anonymous

Never thought this could have happened to me! And so similar to others! He contacted me through LinkedIn and his profile looked a bit weird and incomplete. He asked for my WhatsApp number and we spoke more than one month intensively. Very soon he was talking about love. Strange. And did not want to share spontaneous photos, neither videos live. He pretended to have money.

Very mad when I doubted about him. Strange accent. Like oriental. Widow and had one 10 year old daughter living with his Mum. Two cars, huge house. He went to Malaysia to work and then Kuwait. He needed 10k to advance tax payment. When I said no he got mad again. I didn't like him at all when angry.

Last week he turned on the camera and he was not the one in the pictures!!!! He said I also lied to him and that my husband knew everything about us and that he had my kids in Facebook!.

Mark Anthony Roberto
by: Anonymous

We have been talking for over a year we have never met each other in person. It started off him saying hi saying that he was a contractor for Chevron and that his wife died giving birth to their daughter, he has a son that is 14 and his name is kester.

I had told him I didn’t have no money but that didn’t bother him and about three weeks after we started talking he just swears up and down how much he was in love with me and he’s my soulmate and he wants to marry me even if I’m out I was already married and he knew it. I kind of fell for him and of course and he posted his picture and everything but I noticed on Facebook he wouldn’t let me see who he was friends with.

Then suddenly one day he called me and told me that he needed 33,000 for a part on the boat because he was a self contractor. I told him then I didn’t have the money but I found some money for him and I sent it to him like an idiot. Then he came for him to come home and I had to send money and then he had a accident. So all the money I have spent for him was $130,000 and he still wanting to talk to me. I’m not too happy about this because he promised and promised that he will pay me back even with interest because I probably will never see it.

He’s using the photograph from the governor and Russia. I found 13 Facebook pages on the scam page of the same man with a different name and it all was the governor of Russia.

This week I had noticed that he had opened another Facebook page swapping his name around and I ask him what is your real name and he responded his real name was Mark Anthony Roberto. I need help to find out what this man looks like so please do not give the money to anyone and you don’t know.

I learnt a valuable lesson Jerk

He gave me a cell phone number which was a land line registered to an address in Advance, Missouri
He described himself as 6'2" tall, photo shows a bald, well built bearded man, said he was 57 years old.

He said he was going to work 400 miles offshore from Anchorage - photos didn't fit. I've worked offshore so I know.

Living in the UK the last 5 months but has a house in San Jose. Grew up in Sweden. We spoke twice and he did sound Scandinavian.

Fell in love very quickly. Wrote lots of poems. 3 weeks in he Indirectly asks for £3000 for a drill bit. Can I send money to his sales merchant. Messages me at work putting me under pressure. I ask for lots of info about the merchant. Name bank details address phone number etc. Googled all info he sent which matches a young black guy living in Preston UK with a psychology degree and various jobs. Address looks in run down area.

I said I don’t have it, and he says what can you send and I said nothing. He let it go for day and then asked me why can’t I send and he promises he will pay me back when he gets back to the states.

Mine is Curtis Johnson
by: Anonymous

Claimed he was a widower. Wife died in a car accident 3 years ago in S. Africa where he is from. His parents are both gone. No kids. Pictures seemed legit. Makes really good money as a petroleum engineer and 2 weeks after we started talking he left for the North Sea in Ireland. On the rig his wallet was stolen. Asked me to send him money. But I don't have any.

So he arranged to pay off my credit card-which made no sense to me because if he can do that doesn't he have access to money?!?!

Then asked me to send him iTunes/Google Play cards for the amount he paid off. As soon as I did, the money used to pay off my card was returned for insufficient funds and my credit card was double the balance and the account was closed. Keeps saying he loves me and wants to be with me and raise my teenage daughter with me. Talks a really good game, but I have been skeptical from day one and just didn't trust my gut.

I basically stopped talking to him, but he keeps reconnecting with me and asking me to be patient with him as he wants to return to me and be with me. He has been gone for SIX MONTHS now and apparently has 2 dogs that he has left at the vet for all this time.

I am so stressed by this and I feel so foolish!

After the 2nd day I was suspicious that he wasn't a Doctor. I am a Nurse having been married to a Doctor and so I played along. This man was no Doctor. Here is the gist of what he told me.

Wife died in car accident 5 years ago. Two children in Boarding School. From North Carolina. Proclaimed love for me within 2 weeks. Wanted ITune Cards. Poems and Sonnets were scripted. Ended up wanting me to take a secure box delivered to me by United Nations Courier Service.

His wife and 25 year old son had been killed in a car wreck. Said he was from Jacksonville Florida and a nanny cared for his girls while he worked overseas. He said he had worked as an oil rig engineer contractor for Shell corporation for 15 years.

He tried to talk to me about putting money into Bitcoin but I shut that down. He was a very "Godly" man. Very kind and was praying for me. He would ask me about my family and show such unbelievable kindness. Something seemed off.

Did a little research and in my research ultimately came across this page. Shocking that this goes on. These people suck you in. He said he was praying for a miracle to find a wife. I let him know right up front I was not interested In that.

Greg on Tinder
by: Anonymous

Greg has no description and his profile wants to get off the "site" (it's an app idiot) and uses images of some well known people in OR. In his profile on Tinder he is from LA, went to UCLA. As he starts initiating conversation you find out that he's German and came to the States when his dad died (dad was in German military), work as an oil rig engineer in the Carpinteria Offshore Oil Field in the Santa Barbara Channel in Southern California.

Can you please give him your number? He is 54, white modern crop of hair, works on the rig off Carpinteria and does pretty passable German impersonation. He is God fearing, in texts, looks for love, to cherish and so forth. Works one month on the rig and one month off, and his month just started. The following pictures are two of the five photographs from Tinder and they produced:

Mark Williams on LinkedIn has one of his pictures, but zero connections and lists Ghana as place of work:
https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-williams-b806aa176?trk=org-employees_mini-profile_title

Boss road engineer
by: Anonymous

This scam person's name is EDWARD LEWIS, works for BOSS engineering from home. He is a single dad.

I did the mistake of accepting a friend on FB. He seemed legit. Had pictures of him and his kids. He had other postings on his page.


I messaged him, how did you find me since we have no similar friends. He said; on one of the same fb sites we belong too. He liked how I interacted with people.

We began talking. He was getting back into the dating scene since his divorce 5 years ago. He is raising his kids. Since he caught his wife cheating with another man. Blah...blah... blah!!

I woke up in the middle of the night, having that nagging feeling, something is not right. So I texted him, and I'm said; send me a picture of you right now. He said he just got out of the shower, give him a minute. Which he did send me a picture, that looked like he just hopped out of the shower. (Chest up. Nothing nasty)

He then asked me to send one of me. Which I didn't. I didn't feel comfortable. (That nagging feeling in the pit of my stomach still.) Which on FB. there is plenty of me. (Now- it scares me to have my picture out there).

He texted me the next morning. Good morning beautiful. I could not stop thinking of you last night. Again with that feeling in the pit of my stomach.

So I looked at his FB site again. No info for anything. Birthday, etc. Just where he worked.
No biggy. I don't put my info out there either.

So I GOOGLED his name. Lots of men have his name but no picture of him. His company name came up, but not where he said he lived.

I put his name in the search bar of FB. Any photos that he was tagged in or conversations that are public would come up.

Bamm!! I found a page with his picture and weird foreign writing on it. With other people who were responding to him. I hit the translation button.

Which said; "I'm in brother" "Keep focused my son" Just weird stuff like that. (Maybe I should turn it into the government.) But to who?

When I was Googling, and trying out all different searches is how I came upon this site.
It all made sense now.

I went back onto Edward's site. Posted what I found. I chewed them out, on the FB page, and in messenger. I deleted, blocked, cleaned my phone.

It is so horrific that these jerks play on people's hearts. Use other innocent people's photos. Which frightens me that my photo my be out there now and they will be doing the same thing to someone else using my photo.

Be careful out there people. And always follow your gut instinct. It is always right.

Another engineer boss with a 2 million dollar contract ending in Sept. Home in Orlanda Fl. Area code checks out. Working on rig out of Ketowice. That area code also checks out. Got my info from Christian Mingle. Says it was his last day on that site but immediately I was the only woman for him.

His love for me was right on from the first day. I've strung him alone for 20 days now. He has no idea I'm on to him. I go along with his conversations. He thinks I am head over heels in love with him. His or someone's photo would get any womans attention. Handsome. Speaks several languages. Black belt. Widowed for 12 years. 18 year old daughter, Rose in boarding school in Lituians. She is the one telling him to get online and find someone to retire with. His retirement day is 9-19. He will be 65. Only child. Parents deceased. Smooth taller. Romantic. Caring. Christian. Plays piano. Religious and jazz.

So this charmer went 18 days before asking for money. 2 x $100.00 iTune cards. He is stuck in the middle of the ocean. Needs movies. I sent the $200.00 thinking that would be all. But he used my money to send me flowers, candy, teddy bear and a I love you balloon. Always calls me My Queen.

So, he does have my name, address and birthday. I am closing my bank account ASAP. I have filed a complaint with FTC.

What else can I do to catch this charmer I've played his game long enough. I'm tired of even thinking about him. Several phone calls and texts daily. I'm tired and bored with his lies. And with all this talk there is nothing really being said except his love for me.

Do your research, search their names in a company directory, LinkedIn, county appraisal districts in the cities they live in, Facetime, search for them on all media outlets and search their pictures, if they cant meet in person within a couple days move on.

Steve Arslan
by: Anonymous

I have been talking to this guy on Zoosk and claims he is a widow in NYC and is a petroleum engineer. His name is Steve Arslan. That might be not his picture and I believe he is a scammer. He claims to be in San Francisco on an oil rig and then he had to go to Turkey. He said the Turkey ship did not want to accept his luggage and he wanted to send it to my house in Virginia. I said no. Then he said he will figure out a way and that he was in Germany and that the German embassy kept it for him.

He finally reached his ship in Turkey. He claims to have moved from Denmark but his FB page said Turkey. He has 2 children named John and Angelina, age 9 and 12. Last night he wanted me to buy apple iTunes card and I asked him if he will send me the money. He let the issue go and did not get angry. He said it would not go through online.

I am playing along and see what happens. He always calls me babe after 10 days of talking to him and he is already assuming that he will marry me. He said he will be back in 30 days and would meet me. I am thinking of blocking him but still wants to see where he takes it.

He uploaded a picture from FB but google image did not find anything. I went to Beenverified and his name is not in there.

Thoughts anyone come across this guy in Zoosk and active in FB only since February this year. He has a European accent and very charming on the phone.

oil rig scammer
by: Anonymous

I started communicating with a person on POF in August 2019. The person claimed that he (if it even was a he), is an oil rig engineer. The photos reflect a good looking tall black guy, 6'3", nice muscular build, etc. We had a few conversations online and then we started communicating via telephone, and then email. All of this in the course of 2 days. The guy has a strong accent, claims that he is from the Netherlands. I could not really make out the accent.

After one telephone conversation, he told me that since he and I were now communicating, he did not want to be distracted by others and he was removing his profile on the dating site. While the profile could not be removed, it could be hidden and I told him or whomever, how to hide the profile, which was done.

After my first telephone conversation with the person, I had my suspicions that this person was not REAL because I was not able to verify anything about him, his name, email, phone number NOTHING. Generally, there is some kind of a trail, paper or electronic. He claimed that he had only been in the U.S. for a year and that his ex wife and son (16 years old) lives in Canada.

He claimed that he was not currently in a relationship because he needed time to heal from the previous relationship. Needless to say, at this point, my B.S. detector was going full swing. It was not easy for me to find anything to verify my suspicions. However, I kept digging until I came across an app that allows you to locate the GPS location of a phone number/telephone call.
The GPS location of the telephone call location was in India. Mind you, the phone number has a local area code. Note that it is very easy to get a telephone number with any area code that you want using certain apps...for free. needless to say after I texted the person the GPS location of their call, I did not hear from them again.

Fortunately, I did my due diligence before becoming emotionally involved or becoming a SCAM victim, and you should do your due diligence as well. Go with your gut feeling! Usually, if it doesn't feel right something is not right.

There are many ways to verify a person without having to pay a small fortune. I belong to a service that I pay $19.99 a month for. This service was my first line of defense. When I could not verify anything on the person through this site, I kept searching until I found a place where I could verify something. That something being the GPS location of the call, which was more than enough for me.

Be safe ladies and men. The scammers are out there, just waiting to snag their next unsuspecting victim.

Don't let that be you.

To the tinder person who got a necklace.
by: Kevin B

Hello,

First off you made a big mistake. If they sent you a necklace they know where you live.

Anything they send you, is purchased with a stolen credit card or the iTunes cards people scammed people send to them. You are dealing with crooks!

They are using you in a money laundering scam and once they get the bank info going, if you have anything in your account it will be cleaned out.

Don’t accept anything. His next thing will be to tell you he is sending gold bars to you. But believe me they’ll be a box sent to you, and the shipment requires money owed for you to pick up the non-golden bars in the box.

Please believe the people who have been scammed here. No one has ever said that they are entirely happy and live a new wonderful romantic life with an oil rigger found here. Of course they are all phonies here.

You know you’re intelligence has told you this is a scam. It is your emotion that is keeping you from having common sense. Ask some relatives or friends who love you and they will tell you the same thing.

That is why most scammers hope you do not talk to anybody else. The scammer will tell you not to listen to others. They say others are saying it is a scam only because they’re jealous.

Good luck. Never send or receive money.

A different, yet similar scenario
by: Anonymous

Met a guy on Tinder who was my age. We exchanged cell phone numbers the same day. We texted and talked on our cell phones, and his number was a local number to where I live. He gave me a story about how he was a widow with 14 year old twins. Over the course of a week you told me he was an engineer, and was getting ready to do a presentation for his company that week.

After that presentation, he told me his company was sending him to an oil rig off the coast of Scotland. Once on the rig, about a month ago, he has been messaging me and calling me via Hangouts. He also sent me a beautiful necklace through Amazon. He has not asked me for any money at all. He has only asked me to help him transfer money from his account to his mom's account oh, so she has money to take care of his twins.

But when I checked out the bank info that he gave me, it was very suspicious. I do not know what to think at this point. Why would he even be doing this and not asking for any money, and sending me gifts? I do not understand. I have been lied to way too much by way too many people.

Okay so I start talking to this guy on Tinder 16th of this month and he says he wants to meet the next day. I told him I couldn't as I had an appointment but he tells me that he had to leave out of the country as he works as a mechanical engineer going to Nigeria for the month and works one month on one month off so I text thinking he's on the flight.

I ask are you almost there and he says I think so hun so then two hours later he is there and then he says do I know anything about steam cards. I say no and he says they use them here a lot and that's how you buy things here. So then the next day he needs me to send him $50 to get one because he needs to eat. I said I can't help you as I don't have any money. It's fine but he keeps asking and I keep telling him I don't have it and then that he met a girl that was poor with no money which is true but I'm just a simple girl. He says that when he got there he didn't investigate that they could not use money and he had to have a James card to get money on a steam card but he can't get access to his money because the James card is being rejected yet he's telling me he loves me and he will take care of me when he gets home and he will pay all my bills. He will get me lots of money to help me through things when he gets back so can I please help him with $700 to catch his flight back so that he can get the steam cards and enough for him to eat off of while he's there.

I say no I can't as I don't have that kind of money because I live off of disability. I don't have that so sorry but I love you. he said it doesn't matter and I understand but for the past two weeks he keeps asking me over and over for that money.

At this point I'm thinking okay yes it's a scam but I'm letting it ride just to see where it goes. I'm still telling him I have no intentions of sending him any money whatsoever but he still is telling me can you help me please and can I get a job to help him for just the week so he can come home.

He is from the US Texas and just there to work for what I don't understand if he has so much money. All his pictures say that he has money and is well-to-do but he has no capability of getting access to his money. Red flags everywhere but he keeps saying what am I insinuating that he's a scammer and that I'm insulting him. I'm going to let it ride till I decide that I no longer want to talk to him. I just want to see how long it takes him as this is about the fifth time he's asked me to help him in the past week and a half and I'm going to keep telling him no.

He is 14 years younger than me. He's a good catholic that only has sex when in a relationship. He claims to be 6 '9".

So God-fearing. From Belgium, says his first language is Flemish but can't be written on his keypad. I wrote "Goodnight" in Flemish and he didn't understand. This morning he said Good Morning in German. It hurt that I don't believe him. My phone will be making a sound in about 30 minutes because it will be his lunch break. BTW We share the same name.

Originally contacted on FB and then asked to go to Google Hangouts (which I did). His words were so sweet - and typical story, widow, 14 yr old son in boarding school, working on a rig off the Netherlands (paleeeeze!!) But I went along for a bit, but was always suspicious and did some checking.

Pictures are awesome - very good looking - 60 ish and is looking for a wife (his son wants a mother figure). This guy is going by the name John Allen. Doing the search with that name, there is a John Allen in Los Angeles (this is where he says he is from); but no idea who this person is or is not - but I do know it is a SCAM.

Just recently, I've been playing along just to see if he will talk to me when he knows I won't send any money - nope, not much - just one sentence and then he is gone from Hangouts. Just wanted to add that name into the group.

Glad I found this website.

Just wanting love
by: Anonymous

I’ve been scammed twice. The first for $33000; the second only for my heart. It’s embarrassing to be so gullible. Both were sweet, kind and gentlemanly. Always oil rig engineers. The last one tried to impress me with his wealth, his ‘yacht’, and his sad life of loneliness. He fitted right into my loneliness. I’ve widowed twice and don’t want to be spend the rest of my life alone. People, that’s what they look for and prey on. They say all the right things, promise to be there forever and to love you always.

Just what I wanted & needed. The walls came tumbling down when he didn’t call as he always had. By chance I checked hangouts. He & the first guy had both been online at the same time but they weren’t talking to me. I googled "Bradford Kuhn" and found this site.

Confronting him, I said I knew he was not the man he had said, wished him well, and broke communication with him. ‘You are wrong, You’re making a mistake’ was all he could come up with.

SAD.

This man found me in Pinterest and said he liked my pins. Told me he was divorced and had two little girls and was the same age as me (48). Lives in Pigeon Forge, TN. I have looked for this man on the Tennessee courts page, searched his picture and looked every place else I can think of and it’s as if he’s a ghost. No web presence at all.

We had some great chats. Then said he won a 4 million dollar contract for his company. Had to leave for the North Sea ASAP. After a couple of weeks he contacted me saying he needed a phone card to keep in contact with me and his children. Asked me if I would buy a $200 Steam card to enable him to stay in contact. I asked him why he couldn’t contact his office and/or his accountant to make this happen?

Just was told he wasn’t able to. I asked him are you for real or are you scamming me? He accused me of not trusting him and how he would never ask me for anything again. Got quite belligerent and wished me ill will.

I told him if a little tiff was what would end our relationship then I didn’t need him in my life. Offered him much love and happiness and signed off.

Ladies, I ok'd a guy 3 days ago. Of course I was hoping not a potential scammer. I did check out his page. I should have known. He had just put his page up on the 19th. It seems we belong to a oldies songs group. After I remarked on the group, I get a 'hi'.

Ok now I get the friend request, I guess I'm still hoping there are decent men out there. I ok'd him (Richard Jefferson) if that is his name. Profile pic, eating a sandwich. Wearing black frame glasses. We chatted until yesterday when I got blocked. Yes I've been scammed, I told him so.

He wanted me to go to hangouts after our 1st chat. Yes this girl has learned the hard way, not happening again. I got as much as his favorite foods, color, widowed and a daughter named Jane. That's about it .

Of course, you see a oil rig in the background of his pic. Yesterday morning, I gave it a 80 percent chance of being blocked before the day ended. Told Richard, he didn't want to be called Rich, I'm not as naive as I once was. What the hell is wrong with these men!!!

Thinking back now, I mostly kept the conversation going if ladies that is a clue. I got as far as talking about the weather, next thing, blocked. My original blocker had stolen another man's profile . I'm still reeling over that. So now I'm conscious.

I talked to this guy on Tagged. Boy he laid it on thick. Sent believable photos, more likely of someone else. I was skeptical from the start. Didn't reply readily or consistently. He started telling me he was in love, asked if I would talk on Google Hangouts.

When he wanted to actually talk he asked if I minded accents, stating he had a British one. I am recently divorced, lonely, and have lost my marriage, home, my job. He didn't ask for money right away. He was an engineer on an oil rig in Alabama. Used the recent storm on one there to say he had no way to buy drugs and medical supplies for his crew. He couldn't get to the money wired to him, several hundred million, he said, because of a mix up with the deposit.

I blocked him immediately and took off Google Hangouts.

Transocean scammer
by: Anonymous

Stories are all very similar. Name used was Kurt Christian Scholz, wife and two children died in a boat accident two years ago. Started private chatting on Twitter, very sceptical as within a few days he got really romantic and sent erotic emails, which were so obviously pre scripted.
Then contradicted himself and said his family had died 3 yrs ago.

Played along for a while, playing him at his own game and he went from living in Amsterdam to flying out to Louisiana to work on a rig in the gulf of Mexico. Couldn't believe the lengths he went to but he was so predictable when he asked for money.

Explained I didn't have any, carried on chatting and playing his game, the next thing was asking me to email transocean to request he had leave, which I did, this was followed by a really badly worded email asking for money up front to be paid into an account, but this would be we funded!!

Don't fall for it, he's a pathetic scanner

Then I got a face book friend request from Roland Morris, and he had just created his page today- big red flag- and the pic he used was not the same person as the pic on WWF- so I have blocked him- has to be the same man!!

Structural Engineer, claims to be from Auckland New Zealand. On a rig in the Black Sea. Claims bank account was hacked and he can't pay a supplier now and "his life is miserable and he can't get home". Son, 21 at University in Germany. No family in New Zealand. Widowed and 55.

BE CAREFUL LADIES as he tries to squeeze you for $10,000 and then $5,000 (saying that he has got a loan). He gets VERY nasty and aggressive when you say no. Proclaims he loves you and then tries to guilt you into parting with your cash. Met him on POF and he moved on to Whatsapp and then Hangouts.

Kennedy Hunter George (Kenny)
by: Debbie

So this guy has been talking to me for the past month like everyone else telling me what I want to hear as my marriage has broken up. He found me on Instagram, and would appear he's looked into the things I follow so he can swat up on what I like and show an interest.

He told me I was beautiful and couldn't wait to see me, he seemed to like the same sports as myself and music too. His wife was killed in a car accident with his best friend leaving him with a 6 year old son.

I said all along it was too good to be true, but each day he told me I was lovely and should trust him. I began to develop feelings for this guy, who even phoned me on many occasions. I questioned the accent, and his reply was he'd been in Germany for years as a kid so he didn't have an American accent.

He finally asked for a $200 amazon gift card so he can pay his phone bill and then we could talk more while he's on the oil rig in Norway. He wanted me to take a photo of the card & receipt too, which if you google it tells you once they clear the card you'll never hear again.

At this point I realised this guy was after money so I played along for over two weeks, telling him what he wanted to hear. He then asked for me to email a security company claiming to be his wife and that I would take delivery of his gold & Diamonds. The company has a website, but like the person who emails me, the website was full of spelling errors. He got very nasty when I told him I had sent the email (which I never did as its clear once they have your email address they'll scam your accounts) so I blocked him on all sites.

I am sure that there has been more than one person texting me as one guy is very good with his grammar & spelling the other is more like a child.

Its left me feeling rather silly and mad at myself for falling for it at the start, just glad I played along for a few weeks as he got no money out of me and totally wasted a month.

I feel for this poor Alexandre Correa who's photo's are being used by so many of these horrible people

My mom has been talking to this person for bout 3 months! She has already sent him 8000 so no telling how much more as she became secretive. 1st it was a fire on the rig, then couldn't get off the rig and had to pay for equipment, then he had to go to London to cash a check and go to court against a guy who held him and his 25 crew members hostage.

Mind you it's all in London not here, and now they won't release his passport all while she has been doing something at the post office for him. Now on 2 weeks she is suppose to meet him in NY because she has to sign for a box full of money to be released!!! I am at my wits end because she won't listen to nothing. I've tried to find him online to no avail!!!!!!

They could all be the same person/gang
by: Anonymous

I wrote before about a scammer naming himself Andrew Peterson using a Brazilian politicians photos. What seems to be clear is that Andrew, Peter, Marcus etc etc and whoever’s photos have been copied are made up people. The person behind them could be calling themselves something else to someone else.

Always the same scenarios.
Good looking
Quite often Christian names as surname
Boss or team leader on a rig
Broken English because brought up elsewhere
Vocabulary sometimes odd
Widowed/or had the dirty done on them
Have a child in boarding school
No other family
Fall for you within a day
Call you their queen/babe
Send you pictures of flowers/poems
Constantly messaging
Use hangout or Whatsap

We have attached ourselves to someone completely made up and behind that is a script/ probably a 16 or 40 year old nigerian with Nike trainers and a gang leader with a wealthy bank balance.

We are worth more than this ladies xx

Bryan Aegeus Kane
by: Anonymous

Although I read his story frequently, I didn't see his name or information so I am adding him to the list. Bryan Aegeus Kane, supposedly, 64, originally from Greece came to the U.S. at the age of 12. Has a 17 year old daughter, Isabella, who goes to school (college) in San Jose. He is listed as living in Los Angeles. He's the "boss" of 20 workers on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Texas.

bryanakane34@gmail.com.

1-660-202-2778.

Absolutely nothing could be found on Truthfinder about him (by me or them) So, I decided to take the "ride" as far as it would go and see where we ended up. We ended up this morning with "broken equipment" and me being called foul names when I wouldn't give him money. I'm not out anything and I won't die from being called names. He knew (or I thought I'd made it clear) that I thought he was a scammer, but I'd let him show me otherwise.

It's August, I'm bored, he was handsome and very sweet (until I said "no"). I considered it an adventure. Last night as I was reading through all of the descriptions on your web site I did not see anything about him so when he asked for money this morning, I decided to send his information in.

He is also involved in three other groups that might help lead to him.

Brotherhood Devine Solution Assembly, Inc. and Marriage Hookup in Nigeria and a group called Unplug the Jug.

Has anyone else be scammed by him. What you do to scammers is turn it back on them. It is so easy. The scammers are not that smart. They think they are clever. I do know that a lot of the scammers are being caught. Even if you call the guy a scammer they try and make you feel sorry for them.

Once caught by a scammer it never will happen again. Wanting you to spend so much money on them and giving money that you work so hard for.
Never fall in love with a scammer as they are ghosts. You Can’t fall in love with a ghost. When you ask them how can you fall in love with someone the other side of the world as they say to you a week after texting you that they are in love with you.

What a load of crap. They just want your money
and they will try very hard to get it from you. I will share how I got back at the scammer soon

I wrote today about a man named Richard Williams from Fisherville Virginia. It is now confirmed that he is a scam lol! I confirmed this in 2 ways.

1. He sent me pictures today and they did not look like the picture of the guy I originally talked to.

2. I happen to get another email from Lorenz ho happened to say exactly what Richard said word for word lol!

Here is a part of the email so that possibly someone else can recognize it if they receive it


I just thought you should truly know who i am. I want to take my time to write you this letter so that you can really understand where i am coming from. I don't really know how this is to work, but hey! here is an exclusive. If at my age i do not know what and when to say, then what would i be? When a wise man sees he has probably spent about half of his time in life already, he begins to assess his main goals in life. What could be more important than a happy ending? No matter his achievements, he is reduced to nothing if he has no crown to complete him and that is a woman to call his own, Wife and Best friend. A woman who knows that even while arguing they still need to hold hands. A woman whom i can call a partner in crime. A woman whom you can tell anything. How could you think anything can make you happier in life than finding a love that knows no bound.

I met this man on Christian Mingle. He says his name is Richard Williams and is from Fisherville Virginia. He has 2 teens who live in Europe with their grandma because he is on a rig wrapping up a job in Scotland. He claims to own his own global construction business for the last 13 years. He is about 63 years old and his wife died 10 years ago from leukemia. He was raised in Belgium through his teen years.

On day one of chatting he asked if we could email and go off site. One day one he decided I was the one for him so he says he deleted his profile from the dating site. He is a little pushy in trying to get me to say the same things in return. I can't do it lol!

It is day 3 now and so far these are my thoughts. I am leery of this man. When I google his name I get nothing EXCEPT this site came up in the options to choose. That makes me go hmmm???

So ladies. Please don’t send any money. The guys in the photo are not the ones you are talking to. Read carefully through all the report. You will recognize everything / something exactly this man has told you.

Ive searched a lot on different sites and they can call you, they are able to get to their bank account and they can take pledges (don't know the exact English words).

All is a lie. I know this hurts, but they are mean and they go on asking to help them and give you a bad conscience. You are the only one, they will say.

I called the firm he pretended he is working for and he is unknown. They work with photoshop so look at the photos which shall prove anything carefully.

Met a guy on POF. Says he is an oil rig manager. First he was in the gulf of Mexico on a 6 month contract and then being sent to Scotland to finish out his contract. His profile pictures on POF seem legit. I received pictures of him on the plane, in Edinburg and then on the boat to the rig in Scotland. Now I have googled a lot of everything that seemed really suspicious.

He is Russian and Armenian. He has a son back in California but is widowed. He did ask for me to send his son a PS4 but I told him I didnt have the money. He said his bank account got hacked but hasn't asked me for money and this is where it gets really weird.

He says that a lot of oil rig managers do this as he sells the bitumen from the oil rig to other countries. So a whole lot of people have been sending me money via Walmart, I pick up the money and go to a bitcoin ATM and send to him. He tells me to keep gas money a lot.

I met this guy on EliteSingles. Name on the site was "GDL". Used photos of actor/model Armin Lissfeld (I didn’t find this out until later). He said that he was a petrochemical engineer, working as an independent contractor. We spoke on the phone for hours and texted endlessly.

Used the cell phone number 646-666-7587. Email vannluca@gmail.com.

Said that he lived in Santa Monica, CA. Wrote wonderful emails, was very romantic and attentive. We never met in person. Had to suddenly leave and go to England for work. Faked a heart attack while in England. Supposedly won a contract bid for a project on an offshore oil rig at Byrding Field, North Sea. Switched to BBM Enterprise for texting under "GDL" about two-three weeks into relationship.

Week six was when he was asking for money. I smelled a rat and called him out on a scam. I didn’t give him a cent. Once I caught on, he immediately stopped communicating with me.

Met him on Instagram and wanted to move over to WhatsApp. Told me wife was into drugs and didn't want the kids anymore so full-time dad. Said he lives in Pasco, Washington and is a superintendent for a construction company. Grew up in Germany but moved over here to be with his aunt when his parents died as a young kid. Called me on WhatsApp and the accent didn't match the story. Kept calling me babe.

Never asked for money...yet...but would send me pictures in the morning and all of a sudden had a work trip to Turkey. Thought it was weird he didn't know when he was coming back. Sent me a pic of him on the airplane. Found all the pics on the web attached to fake profiles and scam websites.

Blocked him and he called me middle of the night and said he didn't know what happened and someone is stealing pictures from his phone obviously. Hung up and another unknown number called later, followed by a call from Nigeria.

I fell victim after I met him online. We talked a lot and seemed to get along quite well. He said he had his own oil rig business. He had to go to a job in the gulf of Mexico. He ran into problems and needed money because he couldn't access his back account. Months later I realized I was suckered.

He gave me the name William Harper

Have fun with it
by: Anonymous

The guy that contacted me is Kam Williams - 55 from Pittsburgh, PA - has a 10 year old son that is being watched by a nanny for almost 3 months straight without a day off - bless her heart.

He is trying to finish up his assignments but can't because not able to access his bank account as is offshore.

Asks you to log into his account and sends the details including his social number.

I say we have a little fun with them - string them along like they are you and then in the end tell them you would love to help them but right now are not in a position to do so - then wish them nothing but the best - if maybe enough of us did that they would have to go out and find real work

Ladies most of you work hard for you money - remember that before you give it away

FYI - can not find any info on him

In reply to the scammer calling himself Andrew Peterson his picture search revealed he was using Brazilian politician Alexandre Correas pictures. Other names for that picture show fake profiles. Just search Alexandre Correa scammers and loads come up.

I have blocked and reported having spoken to him for 3 days and didn’t fall for it BUT I have been left sick, anxious and quite depressed about the whole experience. As ive become a recent widow, I feel very vulnerable and I feel for every woman/person out there who has been scammed it needs to stop!!!

He is very persistent wanting me to pay money out. He wanted an iPhone and Iwatch and money order for $2100.00 USD and now he wants me to buy bitcoin for him $400.00 USD.

He is not very smart as I fooled him with a photo of an Iwatch, IPhone and money order for $2100.00 USD and the express envelope with the person he wanted me to send it to. Please see below

This guy is on LinkedIn. He is a piece of work!!! He will first tell you that he loves you. Tries to get your phone number. He wants to take you on an adventure. If you refuse him, he will try to seduce you for a little bit more. He will say that he will not hurt you like the others.

Next will say that he wants to give you money. If that doesn't work, he will say that he wants to donate money in your name. When that doesn't work, he will say that he has a naked video of you that someone had sent to him. As a friend, he is warning you. If that doesn't work, He will blackmail you. He will say that he will put it up on a media platform for all to see.

This is all within 20 minutes of messaging. This guy is something else!!! SCUMBAG!!! ALL LIES!!!! He is fishing! I reported and blocked him on LinkedIn.

Here is my story. Had been talking to this guy from plenty of fish for about two weeks or less. He never asked me for money but surly I may have not given him enough time to do so. He told me he worked on a offshore oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Said he was from Moreno Valley Ca. Told me his wife passed away from bladder cancer 3 years ago.

Just the way he talked everything was well planned out very methodical. Really focused on asking me a lot of questions about me and my son. Was also weird that he would say give him a kiss from me. That’s odd and made me feel uncomfortable. Said that he was offshore for 3 weeks. Would give me very generic answers. Said his mother was from Denmark and his father joe smoked and was an alcoholic and died a few years ago.

Had a sister Adrienne who lived in TX and he was the god father to a 5 year old his nephew but should be a baby picture of him. He is on POF screenname LiamKristo. I blocked his number and he messaged me off another number saying he was sick to his stomach and doesn’t understand why I blocked him and he feels like shit. Use to write me all these weird messages how much he likes me. We never talked on the phone and his pictures were always just of him and he would always send me the same picture frequently nothing new.

I tried to google him and couldn’t find anything that was a huge red flag for me. I’m sorry for all of you who got really scammed. Praying for you all.

Liam’s number he texted me from +1 (408) 641-8354

He is on LinkedIn. He said that he is a business man and a mechanical engineer. He has a 7-8 year old son name Chris. His wife died from cancer a few years ago. He wants a wife and mother for his son. He lived in California, but working in Mexico. Travels around for work. Both of his parents are from Belgium. Both of his parents are dead. His uncle took over the family business after his father died. His mom had to take him to the US after that.

He tried to get me to go on Google hangout for more privacy. For someone who has been in the US and a mechanical engineer, he has poor grammar. That gave him away very quickly. He blocked me on LinkedIn before he asked for any money. I guess he figured that I was on to him. Different names, but same sad stories and LIES.

Widowed Oil rigger
by: Anonymous

OMG. I can’t believe the exact same story I was told. Andrew Peterson IM me in instagram. Asked me to go to hangout (never used this before) but I was not taken in. Who could think I’m the one to be taken with a few images. Wife Kelly died 10 years ago in car accident. His 14 year old son is in boarding school in Texas and he’s on a 5 year contract on an oil rig in China. He said he can’t come off it for another 2 years unless he needs a vacation. Calls me his queen.

Explains his poor English on being brought up in France. I too felt there were 2 sides to him so imagine I was talking to 2 people. I’ve been searching scam stuff for a few days and eventually downloaded the image search and obviously loads of other names for him came up.

I’ve blocked him and reported him but I dare say he will continue.

I would like to wish you all the luck in the world if this guy is legit. However I did a few weeks back Pimeyes, via PayPal for $10. Another woman did it and found out the 'real' name of her guy, that's how I got the idea.

Just don't give him any money, that was my mistake with my scammer. Low and behold my scammer had stolen another man's picture, so he wasn't who he said he was. To me it was worth the $10 spent. Working on finding the scum who did this to me, I have reached out to the real person to help me, so we shall see. Yes he found me on FB. Good Luck to you.

But of course James Wilkerson did not show up.
by: Kevin B

Ladies, James Wilkerson never showed at the airport. This particular lady was devastated. She knew in her head that this probably wasn’t real, but was so emotionally involved she didn’t listen to those who loved her and want to give her device.

Since I had to make my last note clear, keep in mind these men will tell you are not to talk to loved ones & friends and insist that they are just jealous.

They keep your name on file and have another person contact you. A new man who loves you and is ready to retire. They did so in this case. However the gentleman said he wanted to be the only one to talk to her and she should talk to nobody else. When that didn’t work out for her, it was the same thing being no relatives or friends, and he would send her a passport to visit him. He had problems at the passport office so wanted her to send cash. They will do this over and over and over again.

To the lady who just asked if her man sounded like a scammer, of course he is. See how many of these guys have first names for their first and last name. They try to gain sympathy about why they’re not married any longer and tell you about the kid in their life that needs a mom.They will try to get you to send the kid a present. They are relentless! Good luck. Do not send money. Do not send iTunes cards.

He loves me, asked me to marry him, I’m his wife his queen and he can’t live without me, I am his life. Blah blah blah.

Believe im being Scammed
by: Anonymous

Ladies. I met a man who found me through facebook. After a few days of talking to him he asked me to switch over to hangout. We have been talking for 5 months now. No money has been sent to him. His name is David Oliver [so he says]. His wife passed away in a car accident and his son is in boarding school. He says he works on a Oil Rig. He swears I am the only one for him.

We talk every night and he is such a sweet talker. He wants to marry me when he gets off the Rig in 1 1/2 years. He asked me to wait for him. Im playing along for now. He calls me his Queen and wants me to call him his King. He says he doesnt want my money because he has enough to provide me for the rest of my life and buy a new home and get me a new car because I told him my car is crap.

I think he is a fake especially after Ive read all of these comments. He said his hometown is Whistler Canada.

What do you all think and what shall I do to catch him as a scammer?

He is very good looking, silver hair with trimmed beard and mustache. Wears glasses. So were the pictures he sent me of what he looks like.

Patrick Giovanni
by: Anonymous

I have recently been through online fraud with a guy so called "Patrick Giovanni" when he approached me via LinkedIn and claimed to be the company owner of "Giovanni Offshore Engineering" www.goeltd.co.uk, currently working on an offshore project in Tampa Florida drilling oil.

Wife passed away 2 years ago, parents and sister died of car accident 7 years ago, one daughter 23 studying in Boston University, claimed he's gonna fly to me once the project is finished.

All lies.

Very sweet talker, polite and romantic, I almost believed him until one day he asked me to do a money transfer of 500,000 GBP to him for his drilling equipment, because his bank account was locked due to some restriction reason on the offshore site.

RED FLAG and then turned to PURPLE. I researched him immediately and found that all the pics were stolen. No doubt he is nothing but a scammer with no soul, the most pathetic worm using fake ID by stealing other people’s pic, hiding his ugly face in the sewer trying to suck blood.

I can't imagine how many women he has robbed money from.

These men are all I love with you until you say no to sending them $, I tune cards, etc.
by: Kevin B

Lovely Ladies, I will share my story about how I found this site.

While my six year intimate relationship ended in 2017, my ex-girlfriend and I remain friends to this date.

She told me she had met a rich oil engineer online. Did not sound right to me. My research began. This is a great site to verify any questions.

His name was James Wilkerson. Uses his gratitude to God for bringing her into his life. Sent yahoo mail love poems.

Sent her flowers. Now he has her address. Do not do this!

Then purchased pizza, delivered to her work for her and her co-workers. Do not do this.

Understand all these things were paid for by stolen credit cards.

I learned that by having both addresses, they could get her financial info, bank balance, etc.

Sure enough. 30 days later, her finances showing she was not rich, he says he has been called off the rig.

He tells her he is coming to visit her. She is so excited. Her whole family will be away. Passion and Love await.

He calls her while she is at the airport waiting for James Wilkerson. He calls and wants to talk to her in flight until they embrace. Everything to pay for it is in his luggage. Please send him $150, ok get ready for it, in the form of an ITUNES CARD!

The reason they ask for I tunes cards, is because they are easiest to convert into cash & it does not get traced back to him.

You are dealing with CRIMINALS not LOVERS!

I also know they are trained in "sexting". Please leave that to men who are seeking you, local and loving.

Good luck and be wise.

Met Dennis Norrell. I immediately started investigating him. He told me he lived in Phoenix Arizona. There was no Dennis Norall in Phoenix Arizona. He told me he was 54 his wife died 10 years ago in a car accident. And he tried to feed me a whole lot of bull. He was sending love letters telling me I've only known him for 30 days on a phone conversation but how much he loved me. How beautiful he thought I was when he first saw me. Blah blah blah.

He said that he had not been with any women since his wife died 10 years ago. No man waits 10 years for sex no matter how much in love he is with another woman. Dennis sends pictures of a very handsome guy of one with glasses and very nicely dressed. He also sends one with his eyes closed and he's sleeping. He also sends pictures of him working out. This was truly a scam. I'm no fool for love.

The weekly
by: Creature Hater

Hi. I have been away for over a year for personal reasons, actually moving on with life. I am still shocked to see how many new stories continue to appear on this page. It seems that we are fighting an uphill battle that has no end and it saddens me and makes me very angry. No one seems to care or give our stories the attention that is needed to stop these disgusting creatures, as I refuse to refer to them as human beings.

There is a show called The weekly and a couple of weeks ago the topic was scammers, it is a one hour show and if you have been scammed, are being scammed, know someone that has been scammed and think someone is being scammed. Have them watch this episode, the Times reporter travels to Lagos, Nigeria and talks to some of these scammers.

The scammers are soulless creatures, it is an eye opener. I had flashbacks from when I was scammed.

Share this information with anyone you love or care about, save someone from a broken heart and empty wallet.

I still cannot fathom you giving money. You cannot fall for someone behind a computer screen. You cannot fall in love with someone you never met. There are so many signs, the issue is the women are lonely and vulnerable. These scammers love that. They want you to feel your lowest. They want you vulnerable. There isn’t a man in this world that could make me give them money.

Hell, I never gave money to my ex husband. There are men out there it’s just slim pickings. A scammer will say how beautiful you are, how they are falling for you, how they can’t wait to see you. They just know what to say so you give them what they want which is your money. I come in here periodically and I am still seeing the same names of scammers different people. Their spelling and English language is horrendous.

That’s are red flags, widowed red flag, kids in boarding school red flag, what man at 60 has young children? Oil rig red flag. Oh I get they are in Syria on a peace keeping mission.

I tell them not to disgrace the United States military. Then block them. As soon as they mention oil rig block them.

Rig Oil Scammer
by: Anonymous

Hi, this is Chin. Daniel Lee Chien on Fb requested me as online friend. I have this to share and need your advice. Daniel became my FB friend & told me he had bought a drilling machine for 767,000 euros from China with citylinkexpress.

But today this order is at Turkey and due to overweight it needs a clearance payment for 3200 euro to proceed to Bolivia. He asked me to track it as he said the reception is bad in Bolivia now! Ok, now I did check that there is really some tracking detail that shows that its at Turkey now. Also a detail shows he had paid for the machine 757,000 euro in the UK before he traveled to Bolivia.

So now he told me that he can't access his accounts and needs my help. The courier service did give me an address with a bank, name etc to let me send the overweight payment.

Please analyze and tell me if you think this is a scam.

Thanks.

I hope its not what I think.

So I was on a dating website, specific to my faith. Gorgeous 59 year old, bald with facial hair, Polish national, Bernard from Detroit area contacts me. So I was actually chatting with him for a few days, but things weren't adding up, and then he asked for ITunes gift cards because he needed them for his work drilling in the North Sea. I didn't fall for it.

As soon as he got off the phone with me, he disconnected the numbers that he gave me, cellphone and Whats App numbers. Used free reverse image search (ImageSearch) app, searched with his photo and found him on various dating sites, instagram, and facebook. It seems his most common name is Peter Melvin. I would love to catch the guy before he sweet talks anyone else.

Brutus Jordan
by: pauline

Hi ladies. Here is another scammer who uses the photo from my last comment. I could not believe it at once, but now things get easier for me.

Brutus Jordan, 57 years old. one daughter 15 years old, lives in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. He says he is a welder. Very polite. They all have no conscience.

The number he gave me is.
001 631 4839364

So my advice: stay on the game site or whatever where you have met them and wait- just wait and he will appear. Wordfeud is full of scammers. I always denied playing with men and I could not believe it. There are so many men with the same photo in their profile, so watch out.

This guy is 57 on an oil rig in Blue Sea, Canada. Says his wife and unborn child died 4 years ago in a car accident and he has an 11 year old daughter Grace that lives with a nanny in Santa Ana, California. I found him on tineye. You send the picture that they send you and go to rib-eye and lots of different profiles come up.

He has the following names : Clay Hopkins, Alexander Finlay, David Williams.

He hasn’t asked for money, cause he mentions it one day and I made it clear that my money was none of his business. He says he loves me and misses me, I know he is a scammer and have brought it several times and he says he is sad cause I would think he was like that. He just doesn’t know I’m playing him like a fiddle.

He is handsome with blue eyes, gray hair, sometimes wears glasses and sometimes not. He speaks with an accent (says is Scottish).

Engineer Oil Rig Hottie from Italy
by: Bellinda

So this guy "Shaun Giovanni" sent me a private message. Very handsome man and polite with his words. I was very skeptical but continued the conversation. He said he was divorced and that his wife was a drug addict and she cheated on him with his best friend. He moved to the states to get away. He had no family but his disabled sister and his 2 kids. He said he was originally from Italy and moved to Austin and was working as an engineer on an oil rig.

I told him it was a pleasure but I wanted to know how he found me as I was private. He sent me photos and said he just wanted to get to know me and asked if I was married. I told him I had to get off social media and that maybe we can chat soon. This conversation went sour from there. He insisted that I speak to him and insisted he was just looking to get to know me but it was like he was stalking me. I told him lets video chat so we could see each other and get to know one another. That was the only way I could really see if he was legit.

He insisted another day. I told him that I was going to search for him on other media and he said that I would not be able to find him as he was private as well. I blocked him. This guys picture he is using is very handsome. I didn't want to continue and possibly make a huge mistake.

Re Alexander Diego
by: Anonymous

My poor heart is aching for you. There is a blog for $10, (Pimeyes) I used it a few weeks back. I too was scammed only to find that the scammer stole someone else's identity . If you have a pic of this scum bag hopefully it will give you his real name. I found it on this site. Oh I'm still P.O. that this happened to me. I have found this guy waiting for a call back so we could work together to find the scum with hopefully the IP address.

I have saved all his texts. There is another site, 'Faking it, scammers try to steal your heart and money', it can hook you up to file a complaint with the FTC. Between the 2 sites beside myself, he has romanced 3 different women, same props , different scenarios. I'm determined to have him jailed because it is a felony.

Oh ladies, he also is working with a partner because of the spelling and chopped up English language, I almost knew from the beginning of being 2. Also wanted a nude picture, NO, never happened. Good luck, stay strong , yes we have all worked hard for our money. Bitcoins was another thing he wanted me to do. Very Slick, I only wished I had seen these sites earlier.

Robert Marcus also romance scammer said he needed money to get the box then I could buy a new car and promised marriage and a house. He thinks he's slick but he isn't as I called him out many times. I've always had a man in my life and don't need social media to get one. He's a joke and wanted to take care of me and didn't want me to work. I love to work.

He's a loser so please don't give in to him as he also had a temper and would drop the f bomb a lot. I didn't like his personality. He never asks about you it's always money with him if you don't do what he wants

Alex Hughes. Thats what his name says. He used a childs name to scam money out of me. The same old story all from a script that tells me he loves me and wants to marry me and after 4 weeks he asked me to send money to the states for his 13 year old daughter to go on a school trip.

He said he did not have the funds after asking how much of a billion dollars do I want. I said Not sure.

Then the next came for wanting money from me and
when I said no he said he has a tight budget but of course I don't believe him. If anyone gets messages on Pinterest from him he is a scammer

A 76 year old lady went to prison for sending money and it is a Federal Offense To Money Launder. It is sad they do this but as they say the American women are so easy to use and get them to believe them. They are hard up is what my scammer told me. You will get your heart broke and I am sorry.

But the Police will have the ID and They will call WU and they find out where this person was. This is how I got one of them.

Please do not fall for this BS from these guys they are all fake. I am so Thankful I found this out and my Lawyer worked hard on this for me. Be Careful, you fall in love with someone you never seen or met and never will. Its all words and that is it. They come on their time at night.

Dear Pauline and to the ladies that had fallen to the same guy I suppose, because the stories are the same. I’d encountered the guy that told me the same story, widowed and have a son in boarding school and wife died in car accident. The son needed a mother and he will marry you and buy a house for you! He will tell you that you’re the love of his life and he will love you forever, without you he will kill himself.

You’re the only love of his life! He will tell you a lot of bs. Believe me! He will give you a lots of surprises like he needs money for his son, needs money for the machine because it’s broken, needs money for storages and iTunes for the WiFi connections or flight tickets for coming to you! Or receive the package thats full of money and documents!

All of these demands because of lots of money! I was not aware of this at the beginning and I lost more than $40.000 dollars for nothing because the guy didn’t showed up! Please! These guys are not real and they don’t love you! They’re very elusive and they know how to come up with many lies.

I hope this guy will die of terrible death and burn to hell forever

GARY HILTON SCAM
by: Anonymous

I met Gary Hilton on POF dating site in June. Within a few days of texting he said he loves me. Then a few days later he said he won the big contract he was hoping to get and is headed to Malaysia for 2 months to repair an oil rig at sea. Lie after lie. He said very early on that he needs $750,000 to buy pipes. I said I don't have it. He has managed to write me every day expressing his undying love for me. He asked me for $75,000 then $25,000 then finally he said can you take a loan and use your car as collateral.

And the best suggestion was he said try to sell your car and when I get back I will buy you a new car. He is Gary Hilton. IF you Google the name nothing comes up other than the guy who is in jail in Florida. I am shocked that someone could do that to someone.

If anyone has been contacted by him let me know. Tall good looking Dark Gray Hair, Brown eyes. Very patient and will wait a long time for money that he thinks he is going to get. Ladies be careful there is no Gay Hilton. He never left the country. I know he is not coming home to my hometown because he lies Plus I asked him for his address and he stopped texting for a few minutes.

I guess this man is a scammer , I m lost. I fell in love. I’m ridiculous, I know. I told him that I’ve doubts but he needs money to buy a new drilling machine and it costs 70000. He tried everything and he still needs 4200 dollars. I asked him to send a photo with a sheet of paper with my name on it and he did. He told me his home address and I found it.

I tried via pimeyes. I've found his photos on different websites. I confronted him. He was really down, he deleted his Instagram account immediately, he said that it probably had been hacked. A worker told him already that there are different photos of him in the web. But he didn’t believe since I have showed him. '

He seemed to be very frustrated. We want to meet but he can’t come because he can’t finish his contract without this machine. He really never asked for help but this is between us now. I think that he is manipulating me but when he is real, I’m going to loose a nice man.

I’m so desperate. Please help me with advice.

I asked him to get a paypal account but he couldn't. Then he asked for a bitcoin payment. I denied. Now he asks if an international us bank account is safe for me.

What shall I do. I m really longing for him but I’m quite unsure because of this website.

He claims to be General Frank Hubert in the Dutch Army. He used the tactic for supposedly taking a leave/vacation. His home is The Netherlands supposedly. He claims to have a son name Stephen. The wife died but wouldn't tell from what. He asked a few times for my login, password to get into my FB account.

I refused so he hacked into my account, stole private pics and blackmailed me for money. He threatened to ruin my life if I didn't comply to his demands.

He totally turned my life upside down! I became a frightened woman for many months. I felt trapped in his web of lies and deceitful attitude. I lost thousands of dollars to the person/s which I'm still re-imbursing for loans. I began to see red flags but he had the pics.

Same story as all the rest, except mine called himself Brian Logan, 57, Manchester UK, wife died of cancer 5 years ago after 28 years of marriage, young teenage son named Henry, independent oil drilling contractor bidding on job in Alabama. Did my internet research by identifying the flag flying in the background of one picture he sent, and the logo on the t-shirt in the second picture. Maersk. Googled "Maersk fundraiser" which showed a picture of folks wearing the same Maersk shirts and hats, and later was directed to a Maersk Pride event.

Bingo - found the exact same (but cropped) picture. The real man's name is Captain Thomas Lindegaard Madsen. He posted on his facebook page that his images were being used by scammers.

Thank goodness for being able to search Google images and especially for this site for showing info about this scam. When that voice inside tells you to listen, you had better do so! Don't be fooled, there are a lot of creeps in the world. I'm lucky to be smart enough not to be tricked.

by: Anonymous

I was scammed by Jake Emrick. He captured my heart ❤️ until the red flags started turning purple and I knew I had to confront the scammer. But, most of you know my story.

I have been contacted since then on Fun Bridge by multiple scammers and I am going to list their names for you so you can be aware.

Tom Smith,
James Morris,
Robert Smith,
Roger Willart,
Mark 5388,
Jefferson0147,
Tony Mark,
WatsonUnderwood,
Louis 0090.
Robert Smith and Jefferson 0147 same picture.

I ask each one if they know Jake Emrick. It gives me some satisfaction in letting them know that I know they are scammers. Then block them. These Nigerian men may be good at scamming but they are really not that smart. I think we can outsmart them.

GO LADIES.

Be careful guys an gals as no matter which social media you go on you should research profiles and pic with an image search. They are very good at what they do. Be sure women are also going for anyone they can go after. Be sure scammers are reading stories here and other sites. Watch an watch.

Re: Jeffrey Richards
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Would this Jeffrey Richards be the guy who called himself "Dennis Marguilles" and who claimed to be an oil rig engineer with ExxonMobil? That guy claimed to live in Reykjavik, Iceland, but had a cover picture of New York.

The guy whose picture was on it is actually not an oil rig engineer, but a real estate agent. There are too many red flags.

Bradley Joshua Young or Joshua Young
by: Anonymous

I loved that I found others that share info about scammers online!

Last week on CrossPaths this guy messages me. Bradley Joshua Young or Joshua Young. Says he's from Texas but on an oil rig off of Brazil. Wife died two years ago. No kids.

He knew scripture. I don't supply answers, but ask direct and hard questions. So, then he tells the story. His subscription has run out and that it would be an act of trust on my part to go get the cards. Even took pics of the front and back of them.

Course at this point, I'm onto him. One of the pics he shared was a google pic of three guys working on a rig from 2010. He claims it's the company pic. Sure. He picked the wrong woman to target!

Bradley Joshua Young or Joshua Young. 41. Dallas Texas. Risk Engineer in South America/Brazil.

I met this guy rj karl on a dating side. We had a lot in common. He was widowed had two kids in college. He sounded perfect. Very charming. Had a french accent. We talked and texted for about a month. Told me he was in Alaska on an oil side. He did tell me he loved me pretty soon. I kept telling him not to because we hadn't met. He didn't like that. Anyway I got suspicious after he had a "work accident" and it was his fault. And he was trying to get a work loan but couldn't get enough money together.

I told him right away I would not send him any money. Then i checked him out and of course he didn't exist. The phone number was a land line in riverside CA. I emailed him not to contact me anymore.

Romance Fraud
by: Anonymous

Pleas note that the last comment by SMH was done by a scammer; note the poor English and lower case "i"

Please know these are master manipulators similar to domestic abusers and child molestors

The tactics used by scammers include

Economic abuse
Creation of fear (by-product of abuse / breach trust
Isolation (move to messenger app)
Monopolisatiom ( bombarding victim with messages , monitoring social media and sleepy deprivation in which case you are unable to make rational decisions.)
Degradation (highly abusive to wear the victim down)
Emotional or interpersonal withdrawal
Guilt tripping

Please note and do not feel stupid for "falling for someone you have never met " that’s how our minds work ; it’s psychology

Will the real Miles Morgan stand up

Claims to be on a Oil Rig in Scotland, owned by Shell. 55 years old, born in Ireland, immigrated to California, has a daughter named Jane, living in Los Angeles. Strange the dead can communicate by the internet. The real Miles Morgan died in 2012.

Needs money so he can contact his daughter, but he supposedly has a job!!! I wish this scam artist would leave my girl friend alone, but he loves her or so he claims, even though he has never seen her.

Tom Albertson
by: Anonymous

Red flags:

1) Tom Albertson, but his name is Albert.

2) WWF profile says he's from United Kingdom. Said he lives in Los Angeles, CA. Tells me he is originally from Brazil and has been in the states 27 years now.

3) "I am a retired ship captain. I retired from my company service two years ago and I have set up my own little establishment. I have my own ship registered and leased out to my former company, Shell Oil Multi National Company, so I am a merchant contractor."

He may or may not be a scammer, but there are too many red flags for me. I play Words With Friends and am contacted daily by these guys. They always want me to join different apps, want my phone #, etc.

If I accept an invitation to play from them, I always check how long they've been playing the game. Often, it's a very short time. Another thing to watch for -- they use two first names as their full name. Examples: Mark David, Paul Russell, Stephen Kent, Michael Bradley, Terry John, etc. Not always, but very frequently.

BEWARE and BLOCK! Use your head, you're not THAT lonely!!!

I understand being lonely, I understand wanting to have someone that loves you that you can love back but if you're gullible enough to give a complete stranger that's not even local all your money then maybe you deserve to have it taken. Who falls in love with a message board in 2 days? Who wouldnt think its crazy someone fell for you over a message board in 2 days.

Now dont get me wrong, in not condoning what these people are doing by any means but they didnt hold a gun to your head so you are culpable in this and must accept most of the responsibility for what happened and i say people cause you ladies keep saying him.

Why? By Helen
by: Anonymous

I could not agree with you more. These scammers are dirt. They do their jobs well. They know exactly what to say to you, they gain your trust. They promise they love you, they want to spend the rest of their life with you, give you the world.

Make you feel sorry for them, they are widowed, have children, did you ever wonder why men in their 50’s and 60’s have small children? Or even teenagers when they are in their 60’s? Boarding schools in other counties.

Same scenario for all, different names, same stories. We all need to STOP listening to their pathetic BS. Stop giving money and cards.
LADIES, they do not love you, you will NEVER meet them. It’s one excuse after another, believe me, I had one in London, he came up with more excuses than I thought possible not to come home. It’s believable at first, and you feel sorry for them until you realize what this POS is doing. Laughing at you because you keep believing it.

We have to stop!! We need to shut these pieces of garbage down, everywhere. Save your heart and money, block them. All of them.

I think I am being scammed
by: Anonymous

I have been texting a man about 65 for 3 months now. He says he works on a oil rig off the coast of Germany and he has a son 17 in Boarding school and his wife passed away 4 years ago. His name is Paul Alfons and he claims his contract is up in October of this year and he wants to marry me. He goes by other names and has several Facebook accounts with the same pictures of where he works.

He also goes by David Williams but he said that is not him and he was hacked on facebook but I don't believe him when I question him he said he does not have to explain anything to me. He wanted to know if I would send his son some money for his birthday which was July 5 and I did send some. He said his sons teacher would get the money and buy him something.

He said he doesn't have access to his bank account because he working on the rig and his sons name is Jack Alfons. Paul Alfons gmail address is paulalfons53@gmail.com can you please check it out for me to see if he is a scammer.

Thank you very much

I have just received pics of him and children, even a pic of the deceased wife at a restaurant with family. His parents took him to Australia to live and now he is in Chicago.

Started a game with me on Words with Friends, some light chatting and then of course asking to chat on Hangouts or for my cell phone number. I'm game for chatting so I was ok with that.

Chatting was the same as everyone's describing here. I mean the same exact. Dead wife, kid in boarding school, oil rig worker making tons of money and planning to start his own business when his contract is over. Very romantic and basically professing his love way too soon.

So I decided to do some research and it brought me to this site. A Google image search of his pics confirmed it. Scammer. He didn't get to ask me for any money yet. We'll see if he leaves me alone or not

Oh this one was from Iceland (how intriguing, right??) But lives in Idaho and has a NY phone number. Good grief.

As others have similar stories. This absolutely handsome man seemed so sincere. VIC SHAW on Instagram. Sent cookie cutter prayers, but seemed genuine. Born in Spain, American mother from LA. Lived in Chicago at one time. Wife died giving birth. Had cute 15 year old son in boarding school. Worked on Oil rig. Had hopes and dreams of traveling the world after retiring. Still things didn't add up.

Posted a pic of a lab I found on Google image search from a lab dog site. I couldn't find him anywhere on ancestry, been verified. BUT THERE HE WAS ON GOOGLE IMAGE. He didn't want to talk on Instagram rather Google hang out.

But fortunately Google image search exposed this FAKE scam. Stealing a German politician named Mattias Groote.

Then one week : heaven on earth, there was an accident on the rig and he needs money, send me the bank account info details to send money.
Then Ive tried Pimeyes and he appeared in several dating sites with different names, different sizes, birthday dates, ages. I

Finding real person behind the pictures
by: Anonymous

For those of you who have not blocked, screamed at and rejected the scammers, I will tell you what I did to find the man who was in the pictures I was sent.

I did not originally accuse him of being a scammer. I said I was no longer interested in a relationship and blocked him. After blocking the scammer, I unblocked him and sent him a challenge on FB. Not expecting him to respond, I was naturally surprised when he did. Of course, as part of his script he was telling me what a terrible person I was for leaving him when he needed me. I never accused him of scamming me before I blocked him.

Anyway, I told him I knew what he was doing and I wanted to help him get out of the life of scamming. After a while he finally conceded that he had to do it for money. And he was trying to scam me into sending him money to pay a dowry to get married. A scam on top of a scam. So what I did was to promise him money for information. And low and behold he gave me the real name of the person in the pictures.

I immediately blocked him. I did a lot of research on this person and finally contacted him to tell him his identity had been compromised. He was very grateful. So, my suggestion is don’t get outraged until you get information first. Otherwise you may never know.

Seems like scammers are finding more ways to contact people. A guy DM'd on Twitter by the name of Tyler Bryan. Gave the same spiel as others have said on here.

Told me he was 50 years old with a 17 year old son. Parents are passed away and currently is on a rig in Australia. He even went as far as telling me the company Diamond Offshore.

Thought it was completely legit until I started having doubts and came across this website reading other people's stories. I couldn't wait to do a reverse image search (Thanks Catfish!). I just did and of course this is not the person who I've been speaking with.

He has not asked for any money, but has been talking about coming to see me. I nipped that in the bud by blocking his a**. I found the real person he's posing as. I wish I could let the real person know, but nonetheless TB he has been blocked by all platforms and reported.

Rig oil engineer: David

This guy pretended to be a oil engineer from Norway, Tall handsome guy and said is Widowed, name David, number +44 161 375 1663

I met him on Tinder, said he works on a rig oil field in Spain, can't call or video call, sent me some pics which were all suspicious (all photoshoot, no selfie or casual pic), his Facebook page was new etc. and also he acted so crazy "I think I love you!". So from the beginning I saw these red flags and told him absolutely no way! I won’t talk to you until I can see your face "live" on camera! I said all excuses are BS and you can take your phone to a coffee shop on the weekend and chat (out of the rig). I confronted him about being a scam, I shared the link about this page as well lol So he insisted and insisted to keep in touch and finally agreed to video call and asked me "please promise you won’t hate me" and guess what: a young African guy with a hoodie in front of laptop and told me he is from Africa.

I knew it and it was true. If it looks like a duck and sounds and walk like it, probably it’s a duck!

That's my Google voice number. I followed safety tips advice from dating coach after l came across many scammers from the beginning experience on a dating site. Don`t ever give your real number, real email to anyone you don`t know on social media. You will deal with majority of scammers. Act like one!

I dealt with Davidson Leonardo more than two weeks. I posted his pictures. Many ladies contacted me. I'm happy to save someones fortune and open someone`s eyes about scammers.

Every woman should be like you. Don't trust anyone until you prove that person yourself.

I get messages from scammers more than real people everyday. I have a Nigerian coworker to tell me how those scammers do.

BTW, please read my comment again. The independent contractor l met in person works for and agency, not directly to a company.

Anyway ladies, it doesn't matter what kind of contract. No genuine gentleman would ever, ever ask for any kind of financial support from a woman. Keep that in mind!

Thank you again for your concern!

Be safe, and be well!

James Sun from California has a 14 year old son wife died in a car accident 5 years ago. Working in Scotland on a oil rig heading to Arabia. Son in trouble and right off said he loved me and requested an iTunes card and $3500 in administration fee to come to me.

Claims he hates what he does and the contract for over 2M dollars. I told him I'm not what he is looking for and to take care then blocked him on Facebook and messenger

Independent Contractor 818 # a fraud.
by: Kevin B

Independent Contractor will convince you how rich they are. There will be some sort of emergency or will send you something and deliver to you. Watch how much the prepaid fee was short, etc.

I did a reverse phone number search on the phone number you listed. Pops up on Watch for scams, how about that? Look Below

All this is definitely my experience. No requests for money or cards. He actually sent me a gift. On an oil rig in Scotland, from San Antonio. Has granddaughter, 14 he is raising because his daughter and son in law died in auto accident.

Why do they do this? It makes no sense at all! Can’t a man just be honest? If anyone has had contact with same person or similar.. seems they all are?

Independent contractor
by: 8187248837

I met a real independent contractor yesterday. He's been in many countries. He has a contract in my area almost a year now. He told me that he got full benefits when he signed a contract with an agency. Medical coverage, full 401k upfront, airfare, got pay even when he's on a vacation, free WiFi and internet access, no restriction on FaceTime, video call, or phone call. No such problems that we always hear from scammers. He never needs to pay for anything.

Chris Walker FB Scammer
by: Anonymous

I got suspicious after he says he's a NATIVE of ATLANTA but OMG! The bad English is always a sign of hacker/scammer.

I googled the phone number he gave me
574-217-4972 Chris Walker to find its a VOIP.
I asked "do you always use a VOIP?"

BUSTED ... He didn't know what VOIP was.
Be careful

I have the same story, but lucky i sent no money. Unfortunately, i fell for this guy in "the picture." I was determined to find the real him and i did. I used Google Images and uploaded a few of the picture "my guy" sent me. Results from the search came up and IT IS a different name.

I am reaching out to him to let him know his photos are being used. My scammer reached out to me through LinkedIn but in a few days we moved to Hangouts App.

I started getting suspicious when I mentioned things like Slang words like "Hun" and he didnt understand. I had to explain it was short for "Honey." He also claimed to be from California but had no idea about the earthquakes. He also claimed love quickly, parents died, divorced, no kids, etc.

Ladies! Search the images.

'reverse.photos' is another way to search the pictures.

I was scammed
by: Anonymkswous

I didnt get your message in time. Friday, i sent him over the email a 200.00 Amazon card. I felt he was my one and only. All was good til yesterday afternoon when he was booking his flight home.

He said his credit card was declined and said something stupid that the bank didnt know he was travelling and put a block on it which is pure BS.

He promised he would pay me back. Yeh right. I blocked him. Lying scammer.

Responding to potential scammer victim
by: Anonymous

Just had a guy ask to follow me on Instagram. His name was Michael Padderson. Lives in US but is on an oil rig in Gulf of Mexico. I called him out right then and there, and unfollowed him and blocked him. I just got scammed by Klaus Adam Scott. Gave no money.

Then I am on WWF, that is where I met Klaus. Anyway on WWF and a guy named Michael B wants to play. He is the guy I just blocked on Instagram. I threw everything but the kitchen sink at him. He denied it of course, and asked me for my number so he could prove by video chat. I said no, give me your number. No response.

Money scammer
by: Anonymous

With Robert Marcus never had feelings for him as they use kids and pressure you for money and they use love songs and promise to take care of you. I have someone in my life and don't need that story about kids. Hes a sad loser that has to use children and said he was in China and had to get home. I will never talk to anyone I don't know again. I hope they catch him before he ruins someones lives. If he does have kids they must be so proud because he needs to spend his life in prison so dont give in to him

Scammed more than once
by: Anonymous

I am obviously a naive, gullible dumb a.. because I let 2 of them have money. They are very good and know exactly what buttons to push. They are all foreigners from different countries. Ask them to take a photo of themselves with a piece of paper with your name on it. Scammers will NEVER do this. Move on.

They are liars, deceitful and have no ethics whatsoever. It blows my mind how they are grown men, spending a LOT of time online, searching for victims. Even though I don't have money and told them I was filing bankruptcy due to severe financial difficulties, they continued to press me for bank account info, Western Union, etc.

I even had other people send me money $500-1000 via Western Union (someone in U.S. with American name), then send to Germany or Africa same way.

Unbelievable!

If they ask for money They are SCAMMERS!! A man with any pride wouldn’t do this. This is their JOB. It took me losing everything to realize this. The Internet is full of them. They are every where now. They wont pay you back and they wont come to see you. I know from 2 years of going through this. False paperwork of all kinds.

They are good at their JOB. Sorry to tell you but they don’t LOVE YOU and not anything they say or do is the truth. Don’t loose your life to these people that don’t care whether you live are die.

I know what I’m talking about I’ve done this. Please don’t give up your lives for something that’s not real.

May God Protect You !!

Re: Potential Scammer
by: OneThirdCultureKid

Hi, Anonymous, I think the guy you think is a potential scammer is indeed a scammer you're thinking of sending money to. Don't send him any money or anything else. Report it to the FTC, FBI, etc.

What did this scammer say he wanted a laptop and money for, exactly? I ask because, although I wasn't asked for a laptop, I did get a request for money, which I refused to do. Again, don't send him any money.

Stay safe and trust your instincts.

He messaged me on Pinterest and said he was divorced with a son working on a oil rig in Germany. Wanted to go to hangouts but I
refused, so he emails all the time and is saying he loves me and wants a life with me, but his
machine on the rig has broke and needs $5000 to fix it, and says he will pay me back. He says he
is from Mississippi but when I finally got him to call he had a very heavy accent and when
I asked about that he said he was from Switzerland. The whole thing seems fishy to me, so anyone heard of him?

He asks about the money over and over again, and gets very upset because I won’t send it!

Go on YouTube and look for oil rig protocols that is a lie and it’s all a lie ad they even go as far as printing a fake contract. They are very smart and they’ll produce anything and you start to second guess yourself so don’t be like me as I was scammed out of a lot of money. They even cry and tell you that they’ll give you 50% interest so please ladies you will never meet them and your heart will be broken and $$ broke
