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.

Oil Rig Underwater Welder
by: Suellen W

My mom has been talking to a guy from FB dating and he claims to be an underwater welder on an oil rig in the gulf of mexico. Strangely he sent her photos of him dirty and working, even videos of the helicopter trip to the rig. Photos of him on the plane, everything.

Suddenly today he needs GBP3000 to pay for his daughter for a school trip next week. It's Covid, and no ones travelling and he's supposed to earn such good money on the rig. I have photos, he goes by (Pedro) John Murphy, from Valencia in Spain but lives in the UK, has a Spanish accent and video calls my mom all the time. She's seen his face, and it's the same guy, heard his voice, she says that all matches up.

My email is durban232@hotmail.com so we can swap photos to see if this is the same guy. Claims he's 60 and wants to marry my mom. Yeah right.

To the person that wanted to know what Philppi looks like he is a nice looking man with gray hair and says he is 57 years old, his spouse died of cancer and he has no other family.

Please let me know if he is the guy you are talking to and says he is on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico and will be getting off the rig in a week

You know it's a scam when they won't video
by: Biggles777

Hi

You know it's a scam when they won't video or audio with you. Some excuses and responses;

Him: I drop my phone on the water

Him: If i use my phone I'll blow up the rig

Me: You've been on you phone everytime we talk

Him: My pc doesn't have a cam

Her: I CRACK THE SCREEN ON MY PHONE

Me: Your cam and audio still work

Her: hangout doesn't work on my iphone X

Me: Is that a fact? Tell me more lol

Her: My cam is not working but I made this video for you

Me: How do you make a video with no cam?

Her: Send me a pic am waiting

Me: If you answer you'll see me

Her: I think the connection wasn’t good

Me: I've not called yet

Her: My connection isn't working

Me: If you've no connection this app wouldn't be working either

Her It's just f****** up

Her: Can I see a picture of you?

Me: You can see me if you answer

Her: We only just met and I'm not comfortable on video

Me: When you know me better we can video and you'll see me

Her: Yes dear but I need your pictures

Me: Answer the call

It doesn't matter where you meet online - a game, dating app or social media but after last year if someone gives you a fluff excuse they can't video then walk away as you are not talking with the person in the pictures you're being sent. A final one

Her: Send me your pictures dear

Me: Answer my call and you'll see me

Her: but i damage my camera

Me: I agree it's hard for a young African male to look like the stunning blonde in your pictures

Her: I don't look like her

Me: lol I bet you don't

Dominic Amaechi -response
by: Anonymous

Thank you so much for suggesting yandex. I have seen many of Dominic Amaechi’s images on Facebook. He had to remove them due to working for Siem shipping. He is obviously not there. The amount of photos this man can provide is unbelievable.

Even pictures of his weight loss progression from age 7-35. My vibe is perhaps two men are working this scam together? Or he has gotten access to someone’s else’s info?

Anyone ever have something similar?

Response to Oil Rig
by: Anonymous

This is a scam. Unfortunately, I had the same experience that you are having and these scammers are professional criminals who brainwash their victims and make them fall in love with them.

I shared way too much with photos and personal information. He and his group of thugs tried to extort me for money and threatened to release my photos and stories to my friends and family. I contacted my local police department and they told me this is a scam and I needed to change my cell number and email address.

I blocked him on WhatsApp and LinkedIn where I met him. They didn’t get a single cent!

Recently, I noticed someone (maybe the same group) is using my maiden name and has created fake profiles in LinkedIn. I reported it to LinkedIn 2 months ago but it looks like they have not taken them down.

I guess this is their way to get back at me by stealing my identity and committing fraud with innocent victims on LinkedIn.

Please do not believe your scammer. Run and block him on everything! You can find true love elsewhere but it will not be online.

Good luck…

Oil Rig
by: Anonymous

I met a guy on Instagram who has been talking with me for sometime and has been asking me for money constantly. His wife and son died in a car crash and he is working on an oil rig site as an engineer. He sent me some photos of himself and I also sent photos of myself and he promised when he retires we will get married.

I have spoken with him on the phone a couple of times but been trying to video call but no joy. He answered the video call but the line got disconnected. He wants me to send him 20000 pounds which I told him I don’t have any money. I feel so let down and betrayed by this man from reading stuff on here but this man has photos of me and I dont know who he is.

Tried photo reverse on google and bing but nothing comes up.

Any suggestions.

He looks exactly like Grant Cardone. Very handsome. Speaks French and all his family is deceased. Has never asked me for $$$ but something doesn't feel quite right.

Romance Scam-Dave Wong
by: Anonymous

Extremely sweet, found me in IG supposedly in the suggested section. Immediately contacted me. Claims to be in Washington DC working as an offshore Engineer that traveled a lot to Europe and Asia. He types with weird english even though he says he moved from Singapore since 19 months old.

By the time I demanded him to video chat, he did it reluctantly for approx less than 2 min, saying he had to buy dinner for a sick friend. Claims he stammers and also with an accent (even though he came to the US as an infant). Way too sweet, it is unreal.

Too good to be true. Watch out for scammers like these. He cleaned up his IG pages as soon as I stopped texting him after 4-5 days. Crazy world people-and careful.

Steven Frank Anderson- Supposed Oil Rig Engineer
by: Anonymous

This guy is someone I met on the Christian Mingle site. In fact, I met a lot of SCAMMERS on that site. In any case, he presented himself as an extremely Godly man! My husband died last year and I was feeling vulnerable. He claimed that his wife died 5 years ago.

At first we were texting and emailing then we moved on to phone calls. He wanted to Skype but I wasn't ready to do that. He seemed to be getting a bit controlling and that turned me off. He claimed to own five homes in different states and be financially very secure. He spoke of taking care of me and quickly falling in love and making a life together.

This man is a master of romance. Please be warned that he is extremely convincing and can easily prey on those who are vulnerable. He says he lives in Eau Clair, Wisconsin but I did some research and his cell phone is linked to Newfoundland, Canada.

I did a background check on him and no information on him came up. I told him I had done this and he was highly insulted. He started attacking me in an email. I asked him why no information showed on him and he claimed it was because he hadn't entered any. I told him he had no control over this and that this information is taken from public record.

Now I know that none of his information came up because he does NOT live in the US. Every word he utters is a lie!

Ladies, please watch out and never allow Steven Anderson into your world. Remember, he likes to call himself Anderson. Good luck to all!

Robert Antonio Abrams
by: OneThirdCultureKid

This Robert Antonio Abrams sounds like the two scammers on Twitter who found themselves in sticky situations in 2018. One made up a story about being mugged and beaten in front of his young son, while on a business trip in South Africa and another made up a story about his young daughter being sick and had to go to the hospital, so I was their only hope of returning to the United States.

I couldn't help them because their requests for money to get out raised my hackles. Both said that I was selfish for not helping them and so I reported and blocked them.

I see a pattern with these scammers in that they steal stories from newspaper headlines, steal other men's profile pics, claim to have lost their wives, etc.

Literally same exact story minus love interest and location and name of course. He called himself David Robert to me.

by: Anonymous

Supposedly in his 50s, on an oil rig. Originally from Italy but living in North Carolina and working out of New Orleans. He got his hand badly cut in an accident on the rig, and subsequently damaged the machine he needs to finish his contract.

His bank account becomes frozen after a failed attempt from his new love interest to transfer money between his accounts. Now he's stuck, facing jail time and fines for not finishing his contract and he begs the new love interest to send him 30k.

Of course he will pay her back as soon as he gets his banking issues fixed. As time passes, the amount needed drops to 7k, on the promise he will get the remaining money from his personal account to fix the machine and finish the job.

More time passes and now since the love interest cant send money, his "supervisor" will accept pre-paid cards totalling 7k. Months of daily messages, emails and voice calls thru hangouts. Failed video call. Divorced, no family or children.

The love interest is the ONLY one who can help him.

Anyone run into this same scammer? -heartbroken

Did not notice anything off or strange the way most scammers are. Would not send video or real-time pic, no FaceTime. Profile on Facebook. Sent several pics , 2 with dog Brody.

Last week mentioned something about contract going bad, needed more money for Routabouts, pipe to get production on tray, contract ends at end of this month or next. Tired of the contract life wanted to come home for a permanent job. Today I received this:

Aidan
by: Anonymous

I met someone on the Elite singles UK website in December 2020. His name was Aidan and he came from Borehamwood outside London. When I said that I was from Ireland, he then said that he had moved to Dublin a few years back after his divorce, that his parents were Irish.

We moved to WhatsApp after a while and at New Year 2021 he said he was returning to an offshore platform in Malaysia where he was an underwater welder. His written English was really good, his accent was strange, slightly English but something else in the mix. Anyway, long story short, he is a scammer, a criminal, a coward and a creep.

I reverse searched his photos but could find nothing then found a site called Pimeyes where I paid a month's subscription to open an image that looked like him. He had stolen another man's identity.

Bombarded with messages and voice calls for 3 months, needed money to pay the 6 other guys who worked for him while they waited for money from a successful inspection. Said it would be his last job and he was coming home to retire after it finished. The dating site which I paid a fee to has a banner on their page saying profile verified?

You know it's a scam when;

They call you dear first message.
Hangouts is asked for 5 texts later.
They fall on their sword of love 5 texts after that.
Your question is answered with an unrelated question or More Likely ignored.
If you keep asking they suddenly become "sleepy".
They can't video.
They Write Every second Word with a Capital, like a lot of submissions here.
They say an Australian bank made them delete a WhatsApp number.
They Say I can't Take a Selfie.
You don't Understand when they Can't or Won't answer A Simple Question.
They have a "damaged" cam on a $1500 iPhone.

If you put all that together then look at this site. Criminals are Very Active.

I believe this man is a scammer. He’s pretending to be a Dr Raymond Nowak. Unfortunately I started chatting with him on Instagram. Since January he’s been sending pictures of his children and of himself, he’s not asked me for any money or iTunes card or Amazon.

I was doing some research for a friend with suspicious circumstances from a guy she’s chatting with, I was absolutely devastated when Raymond Nowak pictures came up. I’ve contacted him, and he swears he’s been hacked, and all his pictures are stolen from Instagram and Facebook.

He knows that I’m on to him and has said that he would show me proof of his passport, driving license, I’m still waiting.

Martin Laurent aka MartinCruise17
by: Anonymous

I met him on a dating website in Cape Town. He was legit, I checked and double checked him. He was working on a cruise line, Princes Cruises at the time. We connected so well, he was everything I had been praying for.
Then it happened, he was robbed while on shore in the Maldives after they left Cape Town, and he needed my help, but I didn't have any money. "We" then made loans to help him just till he got home, then he'd pay me back of course. But the money wasn't enough.

I'm in Africa and the exchange rate is pathetic. Finally we decided that I should quit my job and take all my pension money. I would give him some just for a plane ticket home. I did it. Gave him R300k in total. So that's almost $30k. Not bad for a single mom of two living pay check to pay check. Buy hey we had a plan for our future, and he'd pay me back.

So he got the money, and he showed me that he went to buy the plane ticket, showed me proof of everything. The last time I spoke to him was a week ago, his words to me, everything is going to be okay my love. When I get home, you'll see how I take care of you. You are my everything, I would never hurt you.

And here I am penniless, indebted and I cannot even pay my Bill's. I'm gonna have to sell my house now, to prevent it being foreclosed. So if any of you come across Martin Laurent from Oklahoma USA, then please run!

A year is a long time, and we sent over 100k messages between us on Signal. Yes I checked his number, it is his, I checked his employment without him knowing, and he really worked there. I checked him and cross checked him, all that he told me was real, except his love for me. That was all fake. All BS.

Bryan Parker
by: Anonymous

Look for another potential scammer going by the name of Bryan Jurgen Parker from the Detroit, MI area. He has a Weimaraner dog named Ozzy and supposedly his family immigrated here with him as a young child from Germany. His parents then tragically died when he was a young man. He also has a brother reportedly missing in action with the German military.

What made me suspicious of this 53 yr old man is that he didn’t understand all of the German phrases I said to him. In addition, he was on an oil rig in the UK somewhere, but was never able to tell me where. It was top-secret. In addition, he asked me for a $2000 gift card at the beginning of the trip because lost his wallet. I did not send it, instead I began doing research on him because the kind of card he was asking for could not be exchanged for Bitcoin like he was supposedly in need of.

Also, there was nobody by the name of Bryan Jurgen Parker in the Detroit area. He laughed it off when I confronted him about it and said he must be a mystery man. However, I wasn’t buying it.

Then, the day he was supposed to begin planning to come home arrived. He immediately needed a $500 gift card and I was the only one he could count on to send the $$$. It was important! I asked him for some proof of who he really was, like a copy of a driver’s license with address and picture on it, a scan of his Visa, something, because if he was in the UK like he said he was, he should have all of that with him.

However, he would never give me any kind of proof he was who he said he was. I was just supposed to trust him. Then, today he asked me for my bank account information so he could put the money back into it and prove he could be trusted.

I don’t give that to anybody!!! Run for the hills ladies!!!

Bryan Parker was a very cute guy and had been quoting love lines to me but, I’m not falling for it!!! All he wanted was access to my accounts, that’s it! The sad thing is that these guys are so good at making you feel guilty for not helping them out.

Little do they know, when they do this, it just angers me & makes me want to leave them high and dry.

Run if it sounds to good to be True it is. Love flows from him in the beginning and a God Fearing man he claims, but the day arrives and he has problems and only you can help him. No one else, No friends, nor family.

HE IS A LIAR. A GOD FEARING MAN WILL NOT
INTENTIONALLY LIE TO STEAL FROM YOU. HE
IS A SCAMMER.

Please be safe all these guys are experienced in their trade. He will get you before you know what went wrong. It's too late then.

Once you don't do as he TELLS you he will treat

From Sicily Italy, works in Eni Spa, Rig Engineer and has a son 15 yrs old. Wife caught sleeping with his bestfriend and is God fearing and apparently found a soulmate thru me.

Sending me love quotes day and night, sounds Sweet and Caring. Always talks about Honesty, Faith and Love and wants to build a family to me 😂 .

At the moment he hasn't asked for money yet, but I'm pretty sure he is a love scammer.

Eric Cheng
by: Anonymous

I had met a guy named Eric Cheng on a dating app and he seemed legit. Working in a rig, contract will be ending soon and will come home to meet and start a new life. Then a new contract came that will generate a lot of money.

The conversation went for few months without a glitch and then the asking for money, verbal and emotional abuse started. I fell in the trap and gave away $600. And then he asked for more and when i didn't give anymore he blocked me. I pity these kind of people.

Karma will punish them 1000x more.

I'd like to report another scammer. He uses the name Victor David. He started chatting with me in Word Wars on Monday. I fell for his charm and almost made the mistake of giving up my marriage. I mean, a millionaire wanting to take care of me? A dream come true!

He too claimed to be an oil rig engineer, waiting for his contract to end near the end of May.

Tonight he asked for money to buy a gift card so he could get his phone back online. Fortunately, I'd already read posts here and was able to say "no".

I'm so glad I "tripped" over this website.

His wife died in an auto accident a while back, has a 16 year old son in boarding school because he is on a ship to Syria to deliver oilfield equipment, as a mariner engineer.

He said nice things, flattered me for about a week before declaring his love for me and desire to have a future together. He asked me to call him but warned me he didn’t have a Texas accent. Nigerian, all the way!

My daughter checked the phone number. It’s a landline in Akron, Ohio. How dumb do these people think we are? I wanted to post on here before I let him know that I know and what a scumbag I think he is.

After these scammers get your emotions and your trust they will use you to the point of you taking out loans and send them the money.

I just wanted to remind folks, if you look at all the recent postings, I have read to be wary of anyone of these guys who use 2 first names as their full name, and how so many do it. Why?

Because there are few people who have 2 first names, on Google, so you cannot find "these real cockroaches."

The pictures are not of who you are talking to. More than likely it is a scammer who has stole pics of handsome salt and pepper man, with or without a beard.

329 suspected scammers and money mules arrested in Singapore
by: Editor

SINGAPORE: Police arrested a total of 329 suspected scammers and money mules in a two-week operation that ended on Friday (Apr 9).

The suspects, comprising 207 men and 122 women aged between 16 and 80, are believed to be involved in 534 cases of scams where victims lost more than S$9.3 million, police said in a news release on Saturday.

They are currently assisting with investigations for their suspected involvement in scams as scammers or money mules, it added.

The scams consist mainly of Internet love scams, e-commerce scams, China officials impersonation scams, investment scams, fake gambling platform scams and loan scams.

Police warn the public against unknowingly becoming money mules through scam job advertisements.

"The suspects are being investigated for the offences of cheating, money laundering or providing payment services without a licence," police said.

Those convicted of cheating could be jailed for 10 years and fined, while those convicted of money laundering could be jailed up to 10 years, fined up to S$500,000, or both.

If found guilty of carrying on a business of providing any type of payment service in Singapore without a licence, the suspects could be fined up to S$125,000, jailed up to three years or both.

Police also reminded the public that it takes a serious stance against anyone who may be involved in scams and that perpetrators will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

"To avoid being an accomplice to crimes, members of the public should always reject requests by others to use your bank account or mobile lines as you will be held accountable if these are linked to crimes," police said.

I "met" James Noah
by: Anonymous

His profile was 5 days old. He was originally from Berlin, Germany but his parents died in a car crash when he was 15 so he came to New York State to live with his uncle. His profile said he studied at West Point. All of West Point's Alumni can be found on their website - so that was mistake #1.

Second was his poor language skills. If he went to West Point, he'd have a better vocabulary. He said he was divorced with 1 daughter named Sophia. He said he was in Yemen working for a security mission for the US Army. Ok, BS alert.

So I asked him for a photo of the terrain, building structures, etc., with him in the photo, just cause I was "sooooooo" interested in what he did for a living. He finally sent me a black and white photo of a guy crouched in a strawberry field, holding a strawberry. Since when do strawberries grow in Yemen. Yemen imports them.

Then he said "there is something I'd love for you to do for me". So I answered "Sure, no problem, James Noah who didn't study at West Point and who isn't in Yemen and who loves strawberry picking". He never responded, and then his account was removed by FB.

Sooooo obvious.

He says he's from San Jose California, but is in Saudi Arabia on a rig. He has 3 weeks to go, then he's gonna make me his 'wife' and we are going to live happily ever after.

Problem is that this Californian has a Nigerian accent and when I confronted him about that he said is was his Italian accent. His family moved to the states when he was 5. He also has been insisting that the video cam isn't working on the computer. I have told him I won't believe him until I see him on video chatting with me.

He also asked for $1000 yesterday to send to his daughter's caregiver for bills and food. There was a huge blow up today, but he insistent that he is real and is 'fixing the web cam" to prove me wrong. OK

MAXWELL JEAJIN KIM DUE
by: Anonymous

This guy said to me he was born in Ulsan, Korea. After his father died, he and his mother moved to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He's a geologist, having a small firm of his own. His mother passed 3 years ago. He said he was heartbroken many times in the past when his ex dumped him for a richer man or other his ex couldn't love him in long-distance.

After knowing me via Tinder, he immediately requested to chat with me via KakaoTalk and talked about many things to make me fall in love with him. Then he won a bidding contract and moved to Donetsk, Ukraine for a project in oil-rig offshore. He said he would spend up to 3 weeks then would be moving to my country (Vietnam) to settle down here with me. But after 2 weeks, the machine broke. He said he needed to raise $90,000 to buy a new machine to finish the work and be coming for us. His manager in Calgary sent across $34,000, first his friend sent him $20,000, second friend sent him $23,000. Then he was still lacking 13,000. He said I need to find a way to help him find the remaining and then he felt upset when I couldn't help while I'm his true love.

To be honest, I'm poor, don't have that amount, my friends and families are the same. It's still a large amount to us.

He only sent me a man's photo in Calgary (in an apartment room). Only 1 phone call when we knew each other. He can't receive my video call since the camera is broken when it dropped down from the bed and the connection in Calgary is so poor??? Really???

Then he only sent a selfie photo (why the camera can take a photo, but not call via video??? so weird right?). When he moved to Donetsk, he sent me a photo with a rig view only one time then told me that the rule doesn't allow him to make a call or snap a photo, as that action will cause an explosion.

But everyday he still can chat with me via KakaoTalk, but never call me. Do you think this case is a scammer?

I love him very much, but I don't want to become a victim of a scam. I was already in another financial scam in the past, and that's why I'm poor now.

If it's not a scam, I will be selfish when I don't try to raise the money to help him right?

Got message he had to transfer money to his daughters teacher to book her a flight & asked me to help as he had stopped his credit cards.

The alarm bells started ringing as he told me she was in the states & when checking him out found its a scam so no idea who the guy in the photos was!

Female Rig Manager from UK

Her name: Anna Cheng
Country: United Kingdom
City: Liverpool
Company: ENI SPA, Italy
Background: Immigrated from HK to UK 30 yrs ago; only child in the family. Father passed away at a young age with surviving mother living in Manchester. Mom used to own a Chinese restaurant and also worked for Glaxo/Kline.

Issue: Won a big oil contract after meeting me and wanted to send me $US 3.6 million because she thought I am the man she's been waiting for life. She said she already spent 6000 pounds on the air freight delivery. Receiving the $ from my end cost US$1700 and I knew right away it's a scam. She said she would come to the US to see me when her project is done.

My reaction: Told her that I didn't need the money but just wanted to meet her and never wanted to pay until she came. She kept pressuring me and I just rejected both her and the courier company who called me.

When I told him to video call me the video call was only 3-4 seconds long and no sound just like the other comments below! Which got me thinking it is a fake! I called him out in his accent and called him out because he wouldn’t answer the video Call and was making excuses about how he couldn’t answer just to call for 3 seconds with no sound!

This guy sounds too good to be true, he hasn’t asked for any money but if this is all true then I will be waiting for him to do it so I can call the authorities!

Met online, told me everything I needed to hear, you know the drill, lost his wife in a car accident, has a son being looked after by a friend while working on Oil Rig 223 In Doha!

After some time chatting he needed money for equipment replacement to get his job done to be able to be paid! You know the story he told me that he would pay me back! All lies but caught me when I was at my lowest!

Be careful they are all just scumbags.

Oil rig scammer- James Benson Ajax

Says he has two kids in the UK with their nanny, Maria. Has 3 weeks left before leaving his contract. Wanting to find a mother and wife for his family.

Says he enjoys swimming and working out and enjoys cooking.

Said all the right things- we did not get to the point where he asked for money. Thank God. Stay safe, people.

Why is this site here?
by: Kevin B

Ok, you are lonely. You found an oil rig engineer millionaire?

Says he is divorced, or wife killed in accident?

A child or two. Boarding school, a relative or nanny watching?

Will ask for money, and when you say no, the person questions YOUR trust level. As if YOU are the problem, my lady?

You will never find a site where a person found their millionaire on a rig, and lived happily ever.

Stop right now. You are listening to emotion which is why these pieces of scum groomed you to help them.

Ladies, if your daughter was speaking with one of these cockroaches you would demand she stopped!

Now it is your turn.

This is sent to have at least one person not be hurt again. You are lovable and there is a man for you nearby and local.

Ended up with a two second video chat on Google hangouts. His face matches his photos. He had discussions of wanting me to invest in Bitcoin. Had horrible grammar and pretty poor taste in music. Sent pictures of him with his two kids, multiple photos of him and the rig he is on. Event sent photos of his Maersk ID.

Even if this wasn’t a scam, the way he spoke to me after I started asking questions was incredibly abusive and narcissistic. Claimed he was from Greece but the accent did not match.

Thankfully no money was sent. Even if the photos match the face, it can still be a scam!

It is fake. The scammer from Nigeria. They are out in action again. ENI SPA company is big and look at the company website. The company did not allow the money laundering. Don't fall into 'him' as he is not the person you speak to.

After a few exchanges, he will show you how rich he is in his project in millions on his fake account then asks for your help with money for the repair of his drilling machine.

Don't fall prey as he is not Real. You are best to report him to your local police to stop him scamming on others.

Very gentle, prominent and good looking on his profile pic. But he didnt allow any calls nor video calls because the company restricts it. He introduced himself as a RIG Engineer in ENI SPA OIL and GAS Company in Italy.

Hahahaha, finally we have the same scammer. I don't have hangout, I only have his FB and WeChat. I confronted him the first day when I realized he was a scammer and he denied it totally. I even told him that just tell me your real identity, you won't get any money from me and you are wasting your time to convince me to trust you again.

It's just too obvious that lots of details and information do not make any sense to me.

Yes he is still saying he couldn't have any solution to fix his cylinder issue. And he was saying he could suicide a couple of days ago, and I told him: "you are absolutely okay to suicide if you feel your life is meaningless, and I don't even think you need to face the difficulties in your life." lol, and I shared a lot of ideas how to suicide and feel less pain during the process.

I don't remember how many millions of profit his project is worth, but I have deleted all the messages. But he is still in "Norway", in the "rig".

The scammer is funny. Doesn't he go online and do some research about how women know all about their tricks?

I couldn't find where his pictures were coming from, so He told me he was bifacial, but obviously the man in the photos does not look like a bifacial at all. I want to know the real person, lol.

I’ve been talking with this guy named wang Chen since March 01 2021. he is from China and lived in Norway, widowed almost 7 years, and that his lovely wife died giving birth to his only Child. Her parents passed when he was 7 years and his uncle raised him in Norway.

He told me he was dating a Norwegian girl for about 2 years but she cheated with his best friend so he decided to just focus more with his project in oil that he invested a lot of money in, and that he was to get a loan on his properties.

He said that that was a big contract investment. He said he will finish his big contract in two weeks and that he is going to be paid 5 million euros and about the following week he told me there was an accident and that one of his coworkers died during work.

He told me one of his cylinders from work stopped working so he needs to replace it with a new one if I can help him with money. He was just asking 3000 euros but I told him I don’t have the money
so I start searching about him and I find out his was a scam. This guy would send me romantic
Poems and love songs. He told me once he’s done with his big project and he is going to book a flight to come to USA and meet me.

I confronted him through hangouts and he said he’s not a scam person and I insulted him really bad and that he told me not to talk to him anymore so please ladies don’t fall for this scam person

Hi

This man seems to be operating with many aliases and recently a lot of victims have shared the same images and some of his aliases.

Some have reported to the US FBI which is the right thing to do but he is in Spain and seemingly getting away with a lot. Sure, same images, are very common but he must send others that would help if shared.

Also his contact details such as emails, cell numbers and payment methods should be shared to help stop him.

If that data is found on a site like this people will learn and stop sending him money.

The difference with this man is that he is in Spain and not Africa. The Europeans don't ignore the information victims have on him and I encourage you all to report whatever you can to the following;

Spanish national police
Europol
Interpol

With enough reports there is no way those agencies will allow a man to continue operating online from Spain scamming victims around the world.

Please, he is dangerous, share as much information as you can and report to the law in Europe. They will do something about it if victims share the data of the scams with them.

Phone Sex
by: Anonymous

Hi. To the person who posted about phone sex. Your scammer sounds very much like a Scammer who uses various aliases:

- David Cairns
- Bruce Adams
- Joel Maher

The pictures he uses show an attractive man with dark rimmed glasses. The initial photo shows him with dark brown hair and subsequent photos he is greying. He has a short beard and moustache.

As well as sex chat, which he initiates very early on, he will also send copious poetry and love songs. When he feels he is not getting anywhere, he will not contact you for a few days and then make contact saying he has had an accident etc. He will also send a sexually explicit video, of course you do not see his face. He will leave it a few weeks before asking you to do the same.

If you read the comments about him, he is attractive, charming and clever. He is though a criminal, a danger to vulnerable women (and no doubt men too) and has stolen (let's not call it scamming because it is indeed organised crime) thousands upon thousands of pounds, dollars etc. Let's get his name(s) and photos out there so he can be apprehended and jailed for his crimes.

Don't believe anything he tells you as every word he utters or writes is a cold, calculated lie.

Sounds like all of you could be talking about the same man or more like him than I did. Friday 3/12 I told this man with the name he gave me of Tony Hayes, that I would not give him money and goodbye. This was after a couple months of "grooming me" is the term used.

First he lived in San Francisco and had to go work on a drill rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Then after about 1 week there he asked me to buy him $400 of iTune cards so he could use his computer and cellphone.

ITunes says their card cannot be used for that. Then he asked me to get some other card. I didn't buy either card. Then after 2 weeks his machine broke and he needed about $10,000. I told him I didn't have it. Won't go into all the rest.

I put the photos I had of him into a photo search on Bing and on Google and found various photos of him with different names and residences and ages in different countries. They were on several dating sites. Then I went to "Male Scammers" and found him 3 times and they have AKA's of him with over 50 names.

I entered some of those photos from there and found even more photos and names. If you have a photo, I would go that route. There is a site in Russia that has one of the biggest files of photos in the world. It is called "Yandex". He was there also.

You are dealing with a big time scammer so don't send them any money.

Hi, Tina Chen, This Wang Chen sounds a lot like the guy who called himself Ethan Lee, claimed to be from Nashville, Tennessee, and claimed to be on a mission to rescue a friend of his.

The man who called himself Ethan Lee, also claimed that he loved his wife, but his wife cheated on him with his best friend. He also claimed to have a teenage son in boarding school in Tennessee. Oh, and he also claimed that his wife died in a car accident.

Did he also tell you that he had a box with money to send to you to keep? He told me that, but I told him that it would land me in trouble and promptly reported him to Twitter and blocked him. There's a pattern with these romance scammers.

Oil rig engineer scammer
by: Tina Chen

My story just happened this week and I saw two earlier comments that are very similar to my situation.

A guy called Wang Chen added me on Facebook in Dec. 2020 and started to send me messages on Feb. 7, 2021. He added me on WeChat and all our communication was in WeChat. He says he is 39-40 years old and has worked in rig engineering projects since graduate from university.

He said he was from Shanghai, China, his dad is Chinese and his mom is Scottish. They migrated to Germany when he was 6 and he went to University of Liverpool in UK to study civil engineering. His dad was a rig engineer too but died years ago, and his mom is now 69 and very sick. He loved his wife but she cheated on his best friend. After they divorced, his wife and his best friend both died in a car crash in Oct.17 2020, which was his birthday. Since then he was so hurt and does not trust any friends.

Now he is a Chief Engineer working on a large oil rig project in Norway. He didn't tell me the name of the oil company he is working for. The whole project is worth like 17 million Euros. He has put all his savings 1.7 million Euros plus took loans from his German house for 1.2 million into this project. So sounds like he will finally get returned about 6 million after the project is completed. Then he will retire.

So the project is suppose to be finished by March 12, 2021, but on March 8 all of sudden he told me his machine was damaged and the material company couldn't fix the machine, and he must buy a new cylinder that costs 6000 Euro, otherwise the project will fail.

And I was the only person that could help him out of the situation. If I don't help him he would lose everything he invested into the project and all his saving and his house, and he will commit suicide.

So I was asking him about why no one else could lend him money especially his mom. Then he has all kinds of excuses and ends up I am his last hope.

Of course the whole time he had no access to his cell phone and no video chat over the internet. So I didn't know his number. I wanted to check his bank transactions, but he couldn't access his bank account and it's frozen because he didn't pay his loan back on time.

So I am very suspicious about why he can't you log on to his bank account? It doesn't make sense.

And I have asked him to forward me his contract agreement with the oil company, emails from his bank about freezing his account. But then he disappeared from WeChat and showed up 8 hours later. And he still did not provide me any evidence to prove what he said is true.

He is still asking me to send him 6000 Euro to a material supply agent, and the receiving account is in Lithuania, when he sent me the account information, and he wrote me an address that's in Italy (I googled it). (I feel this might be the address that he was sending to the other two victims I saw here, because they were saying that their scammer was working on a project in Italy.)

Then I asked him to send me the conversation he had with this agent, and from his screen shot, the agent was giving him a Lithuanian address and the time shown on their emails did not match with the time I was messaging him, and he told me he was asking the beneficiary information while we were having our conversation.

So after all my research about romance scams, I told him that I am not giving him my money and he is a scammer.

Do the innocent people whose photos are being used to scam others have any recourse?

Unfortunately I shared photos with my scammer but I never gave him any money when he threatened to release my pictures to family and friends. I blocked him and changed my email address and cell number. However, I recently checked my LinkedIn to search for any combination of my name.

Sure enough, someone has created about 8 profiles and even created a fake profile using my spouse’s name. Then, they linked my spouse and my kid’s to these fake profiles of me. They didn’t use my pictures yet but I’m afraid that is coming soon. So I went into each profile and reported each one as fake and impersonating someone else on LinkedIn.

For my LinkedIn profile, I stopped allowing it to be open to the public and only opened it to members who are connected to me. Does that make any sense to do that? Especially when these criminals can start creating fake profiles using my pictures?

I’m afraid to check Biggles posting of innocent people pictures. If there is no recourse, I feel like I would just feel more depressed knowing than not knowing if my pictures are being used. Thoughts???

Petroleum engineer contractor scam
by: Anonymous

Guy by the name of Steve Brown claiming he was a petroleum engineer contractor working in Aberdeen, Scotland sent me a private message on WWF- friendly conversation about general things- moved conversation to Hangouts- claimed he was from San Bruno, CA- widowed with a teenage son- ( who had a nanny while he was away with his job). - parents passed away years ago in car wreck- Started getting very deep with his feelings.

Then He mentioned something about an issue with his bank Account- then he commented that he was behind on taxes (that he claimed he didn’t know about) and the bank had frozen his account.

Blocked this person immediately!

This scammer I met on WWF, says he’s 63 years old with a 15 year old son, his name is Billy, goes to school in London. His wife died 5 years ago from cancer. He welds and does maintenance on oil rigs. He asked me for a steam card so he could submit his phone so he can face time me and call me.

He loves me and when he’s done he will come and marry me.

Yea okay scammer.

His pictures are on scam haters. He is using the name William David. Pretty sure it’s the same loser you are talking to.

David Robert and Web address for pictures used by scammers
by: Biggles777

Hi

You met on Scrabble GO. Look elsewhere on this site and you'll see men like David Robert are rampant on that game.

He showed you his bank account. I bet it had a healthy balance. But he can't touch it.

What reason was given for the US Government flagging Turkey? Not a valid one.

Credit Trust Savings Bank does not exist. You were shown a fake account on a fake website.

If you logged in to ANY banks online banking you'd receive their cookies. Check your cookies, there can't be any as the bank does not exist.

Please check the stories of other women on these pages and you'll see the same story over and over. You are being played very well.

To the lady asking the Editor about my recent submissions. There's another 20 today. I can name the real person in almost every image uploaded.

I think you might be the lady who encountered a 'Phil Odonel' If you're really worried leave your initials. Eg LM or LMH of your 2 or 3 names. Give me a little time an I'll respond if any images I have of innocent women match and point you to them.

David Robert
by: Anonymous

Started chat with me on Scrabble Go and continued to google hangouts. Lives in Fl. Said his wife died 5 years ago and is a single dad with a now 15 year old son. From Norway and is a computer engineer and independent contractor who does maintenance and upgrades on oil rigs.

Recently went to Turkey for a contract on a rig in the Black Sea. Says the USA froze his account after he spent 500k on equipment and such for his contract because Turkey is a flagged country. He of course wants money. He gave me the login info to his bank account at Credit Trust Savings Bank.


Has anyone encountered this David Robert or heard of this bank?

My scammer or so called scammer was offshore and he did not ask for money at first. He had to gain my trust and when he did that then he asked for money. First it was cards and then it was money.

To anyone who is thinking about sending their scammer money please please look up the exchange rate first as this is an eye opener. I was to send to Holland and I could not believe the exchange rate vs. USA.

Scam!!
by: Anonymous

I saw someone has already commented with a similar story.

A guy called Alex Cheng added me on Facebook in 2019. He claims himself to be a Chief Engineer working on an oil rig project.

He said he was from HK, lost his parents and migrated to the USA when he was young. He was cheated by a woman he loved so much and it made him hard to trust people.

He said he is doing a project for ENI SPA OIL & GAS company in Italy (Sicily). The project is worth 2.6 million Euros and he will be paid after completing the project. One day he told me his machine was damaged and I was the only person that can help him out of the situation. If I dont help him he would lose everything he invested into the project.

He made everything look real and he caught my heart after 1 month.

I gave him the benefit of doubt and helped him. Through the course of one year, I helped him over $100K AUD- borrowing from family and private lenders. I'm now heavily in debt.

I was depressed for a whole year and I'm still suffering from it.

Hi

You're talking with a very good scammer. You've never met him in person and he is not going to pay you back. Ever. It'll be one thing after another until he destroys your finances and marriage.

You're an Australian so listen to the advice of your government via the ACCC scamwatch site.

Oil Rig engineer cheating
by: Anonymous

Someone who called himself an Oil Rig Engineer added me on Facebook, broke my heart, cleaned my bank account!!!

I was never interested in talking to strangers, but he used my sympathy and kindness! He said he is biracial, migrated to the USA when he was 3 years old, his mom was from Scotland, his father from Hong Kong, his wife died 8 years ago during childbirth, then he was cheated by a woman he loved so much. He stopped making friends because of all of these sad things, and made up his mind to focus on working, he is a chief Oil Rig engineer now, loneliness really affects his personality….

Yes, all was a lie !! But I trusted him, and truly felt sorry for him, he was patient, he was very professional in telling lies !! He made everything look real and he caught my heart after 1 month.

He said he is doing a project for ENI SPA OIL & GAS company in Itlay (Sicily). The project worth 15.2 million Euros and he will be paid 13.2 million Euros after completing the project. He invested everything in this project….

All looked normal and real, until one day he suddenly disappeared, and came back the second day, telling me his machine was damaged and he had not slept for a day and night, yeah, he was busy with repairing the machine but did not work out, finally needed my help to buy a new machine, because I was the only person that can help him out of the situation….
I was so stupid, well, he prepared one month for this day !! I transferred all the money I had in my bank account to him…

After waking up, I was desperate, heartbroken, hopeless, but it was too late !! I have always been kind to people but was used and played in this way !!!

God, I hope this guy will be jailed for the whole life!! Then go to hell !!

He sent me a fake passport and photos!! They can make all faked photos and documents, I believe he is cheating with a team, cheating is their business !!

So please, DO NOT talk to strangers! DO NOT send Money!!!

Rig engineer in sicily (3 months project) Scam
by: Anonymous

Sound like the same scammer which I had encountered last year. He is an Nigerian young man of about 20 plus. He said he was being influenced by his friends to be in the Scam to others.

He had asked for my forgiveness and I asked him to return all the money back to the women he had scammed and surrender to FBI Nigeria for my forgiveness. If he does not wish to do so, he will suffer in a hell of fire at the end of his life.

These guys will meet their retribution in their life. Do not let them destroy your life. Stay firm and cut them off. It will be good to stay single rather to know any guy through social media. Believe in God as our Father in heaven has his plan for us.

After chatting for one month, he made use of my kindness and sympathy, and one day he suddenly told me his pumping machine got damaged and asked me to send him money because he had no money as he invested everything in the project.

I was low and very stupid, I sent all the money to him. I am broken now, my heart and my financial life both break at this difficult moment.

My oil rig scam experience from eHarmony site
by: Anonymous

Oil rig scammer. Said he lived in Salt Lake City/Florida/Houston.

Caught covid and couldn't talk for 2 weeks.

Couldn't meet because he had to go to manage a project on oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Then the rig was moved to the BVI. Then dropped his phone into the drill bit and couldn't talk for a week.

Then I learned how to reverse search his phone to find every number (there were 3) he gave me was a VoIP number. At this point, my neighbour and I were enjoying the stories he told because he was FOS. I'm a retired RN with cardiac experience. He tried to fake a heart attack and said he had been on ECMO in the BVI. Of course, there is no ECMO facility in the BVI.

He had my home address because anyone can get this online with a phone number. He told me he was sending debit cards for me to send to the families of his crew because he lived in Utah. No one was at his house so he was sending them to me.

Told him that there was no way this was going to happen and, if he sent me cards, I would return to sender. I was actually planning to send them to the FBI it this actually happened but, of course, nothing arrived.

After our last call, I blocked his numbers. Wow. Just, wow.

I told him that I was married but that did not seem to worry him. I did send him some money, but not as much as he wanted. But after 1 more time I told him it was off that no more money was going to be handed over.

Steven E Andersn and Is this one of these guys?
by: Biggles777

Hi

Based on what you've said, yes he is a scammer. He has not lost his wife, has no child and is not from San Diego. Nor is he in Istanbul. He has family, in Nigeria.

The oil company would pay for any damages from an accident. Not him.

Why can't he access his own funds? If he says his bank account is locked it's a pile of toff.

Share the website, within 10 minutes of seeing it I guarantee it is a fake as is the number and address.

Look at all the other stories here and the similarities are too many to ignore.

Walk away and do as the Editor advises by sharing any pictures you may have.

Is this one of these guys?

Same as above for this one too. You really think Halliburton would make an employee pay for broken drilling equipment?

I've had a few provide "websites" to verify their existance. Everyone of those sites is now out of use. $10 domain names my kid could set up.

Now ask this. You've met the CEO of Halliburton online and he needs YOU to give him money?

Think about it. It's the same as the CEO of any company asking for money from someone they've never met.

Again, share the website and pictures. The website won't last a day and the images will have many names.

That these two both claim to be from San Diego and use fake websites could be an indicator this is an organised group.

Do what you can to shut them down.

I was mad by now so I told him I know all about his scams. What he is doing to other women and that he stole peoples identity on Facebook. I told him I had him investigated and right after I told him all of this he took down the one Facebook page and put another one up and now he says he’s Richard Ryan from Austin Texas but he left out being an engineer and going to Norway.

My friend may be getting scammed
by: Biggles777

Hi

Change the title to my friend IS being scammed.

1: He does not own an oil rig. That's about $100 million. Corporations own the majority of oil rigs not private contractors

2: He's on WhatsApp. Check the number and disregard the area code. It will be a throwaway as you can get one in a matter of minutes for any country code.

3: You can't find him with an image search. Okay now pay Social Catfish $30 for a check as they cover social media which other pages don't.

4: He had an accident on the rig. Demand he name the actual rig and who owns it. Then email the company and tell them. You know how they will answer

5: He can't video call. Nor will he ever. It will be excuse after excuse again and again.

6: He is stuck in the UK due to flight restrictions. If I read correctly, there are daily flights from UK to FL.

7: The UK is not a banana republic. Anyone can make a video call from that country. More grooming by him to hit her for cash to leave the country.

8: You're here for a reason. You have doubts. Now read all the pages on oil rig scams and you'll see one red flag after another.

I understand this is very hard but your friend needs to walk away immediately.

Hello Anonymous, I can confirm that your friend has been scammed by a group of Nigerians. They have been employed to work on this scam to get the money from you by giving flowery messages and to let you get into trap.

I have encountered one of them and he finally admitted himself as an Nigerian and aged only early 20. He is now asking for my forgiveness and I told him off to surrender himself to FBI Nigeria. Share my experience with you friend as what I had experienced as exactly the same as her.

First he will say he miss and want to marry you then he will start to lie of his wife and his children pass away. They will access your friend's Facebook and check her weakness and tackle her soft spot. Tell her don't fall into his trap as they are not genuine. Ask her not to send any money to him as they will ask for more till she lose her fortune. Heed my words and warn her before it may too late.

My friend may be getting scammed
by: Anonymous

My friend was messaged on IG a few months ago and has been chatting - both text and talk - on Watsapp - An oil rig owner and drilling engineer consultant with one of the top oil companies. My friend is in her mid 60’s and he says he’s 66. However, I cannot find any info on him on a couple of vetting sites - nothing. I looked up myself and many others just with name and she and we showed up. Nothing for him.

He is romantic and attentive and loving and my friend is falling hard for him. Hasn’t asked for money yet but was having trouble with a leased rig that was in an accident and was depressed about that. So may be grooming her.

I am also concerned because they have been talking every day for over 3 months but somehow he keeps having one excuse or another for not being able to facetime. Yet he promises that he will as soon as he gets out of England where visiting his sister and wifi connect is bad but can still talk on Watsapp.

He actually lives in Fl but got stuck in UK in early Jan due to flight restrictions. He also sends photos now and again so I suggested my friend ask him for a video clip. She may but not sure yet but just worried about her and want to get opinions as to what I might be able to do for her - if anything. Thx

Richard Ryan scammer
by: Anonymous

This guy contacted me on Facebook to friend me. I usually don’t communicate at all with these people but I wanted to ask how he found my name. He gave me this story that his wife is dead and been dead for five years so he took a job in Oslo Norway. He said he is an engineer.

I told him I am married but that did not stop him, he asked if we could be friends. His correspondence with me made me very uncomfortable and he was writing me messages every day. I got suspicious and I decided to just block him. I was sick of it and him.

I will never accept new friends on Facebook again. I even said to him you never know the person could be giving you false information.

Ladies beware of any man or women you don’t know but especially be ware of Richard Ryan he is a BIG scammer

Money Hungry

I have been stung before with a Nigerian boy saying he was about 45yrs old, and he gave every excuse under the sun, and got over $6,000 out of me, and I even got him a plane ticket to come from New Zealand to Australia, but of course that was a big mistake, then he messaged me and said he was sorry he was going to pay me back.

HAAAAA that was a lie, how dumb have I been never again.

Photos/avatars on websites and apps
by: Anonymous

I was constantly receiving scammer messages until I replaced my photo with a cartoon avatar. It may be a coincidence, but it's possible these scammers are targeting middle aged and older women with visible photos.

I also do not put a description of my likes/dislikes, marital status or any personal information online.

It might be worth a try for those of you are receiving a lot of messages.

Accepted friend request on messenger and exchanged names then went on for weeks discussing different things from Texas waiting for a job in a shell oil rig in Alabama. From Turkey and originally wife dead and died from cancer and she left him with a young son who is cared for by his wife’s sister in Turkey.

He fell in love with me and wanted to know did I own my home. From the 15 January sent him photos of my sons & myself and it was all going nicely and he got a job in Alabama on an oil rig as a contractor engineer. The chats were from what’s app and he contacted me when he got there and then 2 weeks ago sent a message that his son wasn’t well as he had a heart condition & could die.

His head was all over the place and he couldn’t leave his job and I was the only one who could help. He begged me for money ad even got the so called doctor to message me messages nearly every day telling me I had the money and he would pay me back.

I knew the it was a scam and got angry. His name is Jef T with grey hair, 56yr and a charmer

Same scammer
by: Anonymous

The scammer (a young Nigerian of 20s) still gets in contact with me. He apologised to me on his acts and want me to forgive him because he has been influenced by his company of his friends for committing this crime. I told him off and not sorry for him for he still continues to use others' photo for his scam activities again.

He shared his story that he had lost both of his parents when he was very young and the money from me was a great blessings to him. I find him disgusting especially the story he had tried to make it up again. I told him that Nigerians are bad humans and behave like thieves. I told him off and asked him to look at himself in the mirror. I am just telling him to give himself up to FBI Nigeria and return whatever Money he has with him.

I blocked him from whatsapp and social media and only share with friends whom I know and trust. I
just tell them off and don't waste time with them if they have no intention to return the money back to us.

Mark Donad aka Mark Donald has a page here on his oil rig scam wanting $36,000. For almost a year he and my alias have been at each other.

My alias demanded

proof he really is Edafe Diamond and wanted a selfie of him giving her the bird. He didn't know what that meant. 3 days later a video arrived of him holding a bird in a cage.

The audio is muted and the video is on the Biggles777 YouTube channel.

Oh yeah. He kept calling me "my dear". His grammar in his texts was always a bit off. For someone who claimed to have 2 masters. He would say things like,"How old is your kids" or " would you except my son..." instead of acceot. The colleges he said he attended don't even exist.

All more confirmations that he was a scam. Same as so many posts here...sent romantic music videos via YouTube. (Yuck) He said he wanted to marry me within 48 hrs of chatting with him and sometimes called me his "wife".

For someone so God-fearing, he doesn't seem to be too worried about his own soul. The only man in all of this I feel sorry for is the one this jerk stole all his photos from!

In reference to my other comment two days ago, how can I post pictures? I got the pictures from my mother and had a long talk with her last night.

I think she realizes now that this was a scam. What really got me is when I asked her if he called her anything other than her name. And she said yes, I asked her if he called her "my dear" and she just looked at me. I knew it was a sure thing then. I had read that somewhere but they called Women" my dear" in conversation.

I’d like to share these photos with everyone on this thread. The guy has white hair, one of the photos he is in a wetsuit, another photo he is on the golf course, and that they are pretty nondescript.

Says be lives in San Diego. Gave me the address of a gas station. Widowed. Wife died of breast cancer. Grey hair blue eyes no beard.

Luckily I knew he was a scammer and had fun texting him for a few weeks. I filled him with as many lies as he told me. He wanted me to send him $2000 in email gift cards so he could send them to his son.

Yeah right! As soon as I came across this site it was no longer fun messing with him. I blocked and reported him. I'm so sorry to all the women who fell for his scam. I really am.

After 2 days, he was in love and calling me his wife. He says he is widowed and has a 14 year old son in boarding school in London, yet when he speaks of his son, he always says "her". He said he has 2 years 4 months left on a military contract working with Shell Oil & Gas in the North Sea (I believe thats what he said).

He told me he has a mansion in London and wants me to relocate to London with him and even showed me a certificate of deposit to some bank there worth $2.5million.

BEN WILLIAMS APRIL 8 1954..SAN DIEGO..SON KEN BROTHER ARAHAM. His GMAIL IS Benwilliams1820@gmail.com and been chatting for a few weeks. On a rig in the gulf of Mexico and supposed to leave by first of March. Says his brother always helped him out etc, but ABRAHAM recently passed about 3 days ago from throat cancer and for some reason he cannot find his [ben] credit card so needs money to communicate and get paper work done so he can leave the rig and retire. BEGGED me for money to buy a card at Walmart but I refused and he stopped talking to me immediately.

I called him on it and he said I begged you for help and what did you do???? nothing. There was big talk of meeting me and being together forever and moving in together but finding a new home and was in love with me soon as he first talked to me bla bla bla.

Been trying to find someone to get him a money card and he has got women he is trying to work on. Claims he is a god fearing Christian man and has white hair, a white beard and glasses and shaves the lower part of his beard but still has a moustache.

Oh and all the while we messaged he never said his brother had cancer all he said was ABRAHAM was in a wheel chair, so just a lot of odd things been coming up over time that kept my guard up but to get to the truth one has to PLAY THE GAME to catch them up and when it happens you are the worst person in the world..no feelings dont care etc etc etc

Please help. This "guy" is currently scamming my mother and she's hook, line, and sinker! We even showed her what came up on the Google search which led us to here. Also looked up the phone number and it's registered to a Cassie (or Cassidy)Donovan.

He sends her songs through YouTube links and they talk for hours. I warned her not to send money but she's blinded by this person schmoozing her.

Please, anyone, share your similarities!

He says he's an oil rig engineer, currently in Texas, then going to the next rig in Canada. Widowed and I saw 3 pictures of him, one with a dog and he was holding a ball throwing device, the other he was sitting on the beach, and the third was a selfie with crazy hair sticking up (said he just got out of shower when my mom asked to video chat).

Now you asked how do I know that Dalton Jerry is wanted well he was my scammer for three years and he owes money to me and he is a Nigerian and the last I knew DOJ was after him to get my money back.

Now this man that calls himself Martin changed his name because some Nigerian has the same real name as his but I don't buy that and I believed he got hacked by a Nigerian and he stole this white mans identity and pictures off fb and is asking for money. The real man had no reason to ask for money. I read up on the company he told me he worked for but then I don't know who I am talking to now.

He works on an oil rig as an engineer and the equipment broke and needs fixing and he can't login to his bank so he asks for money to help get the equipment to him and the only payment he can take is cards.

I didn't do it for 2900 dollars as it was a lot of money for me. Well after we exchanged words he told me to have a nice life. Well I threw the Dalton Jerry file that he sent in a email back at him and he now has words to say because this man as I knew is a wanted man by the DOJ.

So needless to say again if it is him he broke my heart on FEB. 14th.

Abomination to God are lies and such wickedness.
He will say all the right things as he knows the weakness of the Heart. Google where he says he is from and send all the info. Probably FBI will not get in touch with you. Trust they look into it. They do catch some of these guys. You must have Faith in a God who sees our heartache. Vengeance is mine says God. Romans 13:4 If you do evil Be Afraid. Its the Bible.

Ask God to get this guy on the fbi list around the world. Turn him into London, Nigeria, Cypress, everywhere.

TRUST GOD FOR ONE DAY THESE GUYS WILL BE DEALT WITH

I had so much evidence and even names and addresses of the people involved in my scam. I contacted my local police department with a binder with pictures and addresses of all involved and they were not interested.

I contacted the FBI website and heard NOTHING! My local police said because one of the people involved had a Cypress address they were unable to do anything. I tried to contact the Cypress authorities myself and got no where.

I believe that this is a national crisis and it is to much for law enforcement to deal with and because of this its every man/woman for themselves.

Keith Mesch
by: Anonymous

Your description of Keith M. sounds similar to Phil Odonnel. That’s the name he used in LinkedIn. He sent me photos of him and his 7 yr old daughter, Steph. He sent YouTube videos of love songs. He even sent a video of him in the shower playing with himself but you don’t see his face!

He said he had cash, jewelry and gems in a safety deposit box. He even sent a copy of his contract in Mumbai worth $3 million dollars. So after 2 months of chatting on WhatsApp, he tried to scam me for money. It just didn’t add up and the chats seemed like it was written by different people.

Thanks to this website and advice from Biggles and my local police, I came to my senses and blocked him on everything. I even changed my email and cell number.

Please don’t believe a word from Keith and block him ASAP before you lose your livelihood and soul to this criminal.

Words With Friends
by: Anonymous

Just so you are aware, through the app Words With Friends (WWF,) a man supposedly named Charles Cardone at the email address charlescardone76@gmail.com is trying to become my friend. Based on the archived messages with this person who is supposedly living in North Dakota as a single father with an 11 year old daughter, he admitted to being a business man. Due to this person's low proficiency in English, s/he truly admitted to scamming through online apps and then financially running havoc on people who fall for it all.

This person asked to switch to Hangouts, and we briefly communicated on there but then after getting his or her scamming admittance, I blocked the person and the same person admitting to being an online scammer through the messaging system on WWF. I think looking into this is best. There is also Frank Alex who tried the same thing.

Thankfully I chose to call them out & not succumb to being messed with. Please make note of the WWF app being used to scam people!!

He’s good looking, balding, grey beard, glasses and very American. Says he is 52 and this will be his last job as it will make him millions and he can then retire.

I told him I can’t send money but walk away and I’ll support him here in the US until he is settled.

Needless to say I’m a nasty woman and he needs this to make millions so why would he walk away?
Says He won’t be let off the rig as he’s owes them money and owes his best Friend money so I am his only help .

James reached out via Linked In. Profile said he was a Bitcoin investor and prior was an oil rig engineer (marine engineer). Storyline was wife and unborn child died eight years ago in childbirth, has been lonely and heartbroken for eight years and is now ready to open self for love.

He says all the right things, but when asked questions gives info, but never info that can be verified. When asked to take an impromptu selfie on the rig, he claims he can't because of danger of explosion, and copy and pastes this info from internet.

Sometimes he has unexplained delayed responses or won't answer direct questions. He even provided a bank statement from "Esteemed Bank" showing a transfer to him of 2 million something dollars, yet when I googled the bank name, nothing comes up.

When I expressed doubts and demanded he prove his identity to continue engaging he turns the tables and says that I have severe trust issues. We never made it to the part where he asks for $.

Next thing I know his profile is off of Linkedin and he bids me farewell on hangouts. One other clue, he claimed to have spent most of life in Uk and settled in TX yet writing reflected English Language Learner by virtue of grammar errors in form of misconjugated verbs regularly.

I AM BEING SCAMMED BY A DOCTOR?
by: Duped but good!

I am in romance with an American doctor who works for the UN in Nigeria. He says his bank account is frozen and he has not access to the account until he returns to the United States.

I have sent him gift cards several times! Some he says are okay but others do not work. I contacted the company for the balance and it is zero. He told me he never used that one and I should ask for a replacement card. I would like to know if he can redeem the bad card while telling me it is no good and can the gift card company tell me if he actually used the card and is telling me it is no good to get more money from me?

I really thought we had something going, but after reading this site--I know now that he is only scamming me and he is not a real doctor. Also I mentioned it was mlk day and a holiday. I asked him who mlk was but it took him several minutes to answer me.

I now know he googled for the answer!

His gmail is garrettwilliam462@gmail.com

Anyway in the middle of our conversation he tells me to get him a $200.00 steam card that his computer needs updating so he can talk to me but that didnt happen and he wasn't real happy. I refused but he let it drop and then last night he tells me that he had cash and gold in a swiss bank account and is going to tell certain people I was his wife so I can take receipt of these packages.

I had nothing nice to say and I blocked him. All his Facebook sites are the same pictures of him in military settings with other troops. Anyway I contacted the army scammer site and reported a possible army scammer. He is a good looking man, said he is 59 and has a 19 year old daughter in college and has 2 homes one in VA and one in New Jersey.

Working as a marine mechanical engineer in Turkey or London on a rig ship. I trusted him completely, he put money into my bank account and it turned out to be fraud. Two bank accounts closed on me for fraud. He claims it wasn't him. He has all personal information on me. I Am so scared now I am going to block him now.

I reversed imaged him, and nothing came of it. I am now terrified he will do more damage to me. $8000 from bank fraud, on top of my own $20,000 debt. I am just an old woman on SSI and am now in deep financial trouble.

I will say that all the scammers are Nigerian as I caught one off guard who is only 20 years old and he finally admitted he is a scammer and a liar. I blocked him off his US Hp number (as I wonder how he is able to use the US no in the whatsapp for he is in Nigeria).

He sends his whatsapp to me again in his Nigerian Hp no and I blocked him for being a disgusting scammer for lying and stealing so much money from innocent people. I demanded him to pay as he said he can repay through a giftcard. I told him that he already had so much money from the giftcard, yet he said he had sold it off for cash.

He goes by the name of Lisfa Sylla on Facebook but says his name is Mason Anthony, 62 yo born in Spain from a Spanish mother, American Father but born in Toronto. Pictures are of a very good looking white man. Sent me a pic of his passport.

He started wanting to know everything about me but I didn't agree so he was forced to tell me about him. Does not take sarcasm well. Takes it as an insult. Speaks too much about God all the time. Makes mistakes in English. Looks everything a bit more complex on google.

Worked on an oil rig for 2 years and looks for another woman because he had too many and they've all taken his money. Asked me to go on the oil rig to visit him and then asked me to pay for his ticket 1000€ to come see me. I said that it was too early and that we would talk about it next month maybe. I tried to get him mad and finally yesterday I succeeded. He was not at all the gentleman he said he was. I would like to tell the real guy in Canada whose pictures he is using that all this is happening but I cant find him on the web!

If anybody has a way to tell a Mr. MASON ANTHONY from Toronto that this is happening please do.
By the way, all this is happening in Europe and more precisely in Italy

Well I have finally finished the friendship.
I have lost my brother in the last 36 hrs - I asked for some space as my brother was poorly with covid and I was obviously upset - he text me that well if you don’t want to help me out with money don’t use your brother as an excuse as I had not mentioned that his before - of course I had told him re my brother he just didn’t read the texts properly then

I said that I had just lost my brother and was grieving and all he could think was where could I get him some money to fix a machine that’s been now broken for 3 or more weeks ! Which I have told him before that I although I had the money I would not send to anyone I had not met in person !

Philip Wong
by: Anonymous

After being cheated of $900 on an iTunes card, I finally dug out the scammer’s secret by exposing him as Philip Wong. The Facebook with the name of Philip Wong or Philip Lee Wang and so on is done by a Nigerian youngster 20 years of age. He has been using another mans photo and cheats on women.

I wanted to report him to the FBI in Nigeria to catch him. I asked him to return the money and yet he asked for another iTunes card for $200 so that he can transfer the money back to me.

Is there such thing that iTunes card can use to do the transferring of funds? I will not do that anymore. Can’t believe that he declared himself as a Christian!

Same story as this Keith, but the name he uses is Sean Luka - email: sabaseanluka@gmail.com. Works on an oil rig outside Scotland. Destroyed a machine and had to order a new one from China. Unfortunately his account was closed and needed my help, but pity him - I am already broke haha.

Was already very suspicious when the question came up. Met on Tinder. Very handsome, sweet, widower. He claims to live in Baltimore, USA, but grew up in Georgia in Eastern Europe. Have talked to him and he speaks American with an accent. Chatted with him for two to three weeks on email and WhatsApp. Therefore have the phone number as well and it is located in Baltinore, but I do not get his name when I apply. May have something to do with the fact that I live in Europe.

Very much talk about that I was the big love in his life and blah blah. Have many pictures, but do not know how I can share them. Sees that many criticize WhatsApp, but I already have it to communicate with oil workers (which I know well), as it is often the only option.

This Guy Keith could you give info about him hair color, glasses, beard, color eyes. Would like to see picture of him. If he says his machine has broken he is a scammer. He only wants your money.

Even if he removed a profile its not because he has found the woman of his dreams. If you ask questions he may think your on to his scam.
Reverse Image Search Tineye and Pimseye are both
good places. Don't allow him to get to you as it's very hard once you fall for these guys and you will never see him. Never.

Real man looking for woman of his dreams will not ask for money. He is not an oil rigger and he like many others are using it, and they find pics and photo shop their face so it really looks ligit. I've been there and it is all lies.
Calling you daily he is playing your emotions. If he thinks you have any money at all he will play you and the things he says are very much real to you. IT'S ALL LIES.

Please block him. He will ruin your life. LinkedIn know there are hard working professional women earning good living. These scammers have Invaded all social media.

If any one can post pics of this guy it will be
helpful.

Please be safe. Watch over your Heart as you only have one and once it's broken it takes a long time to heal.

Good luck and be watchful

He was saying he was A Dr and the same widow going to Syria and needed money for his son. I Soon closed that down

I only have pictures KM sent to me and one was his LinkedIn profile which is now taken down. I’d love to see other pics to see if he is using someone’s profile but I can’t find anything following lots of research.

No money going to him and I only reply occasionally now but of course he still loves me and wants to come to me lol but can’t as needs money for the machine - workers are threatening him now - he will make 1.8 million dollars if he can finish this job.

Response to woman being scammed by Keith Mesch
by: Anonymous

Scammers are using LinkedIn to find their victims. Once I accepted the request from my scammer, Phil Odonnel, I started getting more requests from other "oil rig engineers".

LinkedIn has some kind of algorithm that will try to connect you with other people that have similar work experience from those you have accepted LinkedIn connections.

I know you wish that Keith is genuine and real but he’s not. I also fell in love with my scammer but when he started asking me for money 3 times and claimed he had a lot of money and a $5 million contract, that was when I realized he was scamming me.

I had to block him on everything and reported him to LinkedIn as a fake persona. He had over 700 connections on LinkedIn and I felt sad that he was scamming all of these women. I’m getting over the heartache but I’m glad I didn’t lose my hard earned money to these horrible scumbags.

Good luck and please listen to what so many are saying on this website. Think with your head, not with your heart.

Hi

Yes, this is definitely a scam. The use of the word "alay" or "alaye" tells you the person you are speaking with is likely a young Nigerian.

A man from Texas won't use that word.

Also if you look further into this thread you will see all the red flags you mention. Only 2 friends on Facebook, 2 first names, young daughter, no wife and love in a few days.

He is 55 and successful yet you are the only one who can help him financially.

I think someone is trying to scam me, and he says his name is Ricky Wills and claims to work on a British Gas oil rig. He found me from a comment I left on a cat FB page, and he seems to ask the same questions and even ask my favourite colour and what I like to eat.

He won’t answer any of my questions and told me he loved me within a couple of days. He claims he lives in Texas and divorced with a 4 year old daughter, and has only two pics on his FB page and only 2 mutual friends.

He wanted my email address and suggested we talk on the hangout app, and he asked me yesterday if I could help him out by buying his daughter a steam voucher as she likes gaming which I thought was strange so I told him that if he wants to transfer some money into my bank then I would be quite happy to get a voucher when he transfers the money.

Then I got a strange reply saying Alay then no more messages. I googled that word and it’s from a foreign language. His profile picture is of a white man who looks English and he did tell me that he was 55, is this definitely a scam?

Thank you Claire

One day he said he has an emergency call and his worker is injured. His machine cannot be fixed.

He needs my help to give him $7000. Please be aware of this guy, his name is Zhang Liwie at Facebook.

They work on your emotions and loneliness

They are criminals, they ask you to send cash and if you have no money, use your credit card for cash advances.

These wonderful loving men are cockroaches stealing your most valuable possession, your heart, and they are All Fictitious.

Met on Facebook Dating. He said he was from Colorado. On an Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
Wife and Daughter died in a car crash and he was raising his granddaughter with the help of his elderly Aunt.

First he said that he couldn't pay for Meg's tuition, looked the school up and its a public school, so I kept playing the game.

There was a fire on the rig and he had to pay for the damages before the company would let him come home. He had raised 51,000.00 and only needed 7,000.00 more - I started looking into his pictures and they were all of a business man from Canada. When I asked him about it, he just responded why wouldn't I let him explain.

He keeps saying that he is currently trapped in Italy but he become very suspicious after he had used the old whatsapp no +1(669)2070098. I believe he is in the USA as how can he get the other USA Sim card with the number +1(619)8245884 since he is in Italy.

He had promised that he will return the money when he is in the USA but until now he hasn't admitted his whereabouts and even refused to return the money to those women who had been affected by him.

I would like to report him to FBI or the police in the USA but I am in a different country. So will anyone be able to help me to report him to the local police or FBI and try to retrieve back our hard earned money from his wealth. Thank you.

Will ask for money to ship equipment so he can get off the rig and be with you. Company is STAZROK but phony address, phone and invoice. Richard even picked up the company phone! I knew he answered it, and said he was "ROBERT."

Wants you to send money to the Bank of America account $5-10,000. Or just send him cash, get an advance from your credit card if necessary. What a hard lesson, they tell you what they think you want to hear and rob you.

" I asked a friend and he told me that 500$ will be ally. 500$ will be okay the way my friend to me so please I only have today to do that, Trust me. I will call you on video call as soon as you get the card ok. Then if I can call you after you sent it please call me a lier then I will not forgive my self for hurting you ok. And I promise I will really be greatful and thankful to you my love. " But this messages: " I promise I will call you on video call so you can trust me the way it has been before. But if you later find out that I'm real when I call you on video call I will never forgive you for all the insult and doubt you tender to me. I'm a pure Christian and I have faith in God so much. Okay left for you to deciede if you want to elp me or not okay. I won't beg you anymore okay. If you really want to help please do before i die here please baby."

Are the statements a blackmail if we don’t help? He can’t video call when I ask him to unless I send the iTunes card to him. Plus can’t he purchase them in Italy as I thought iTunes cards can be found worldwide!

Remember don’t fall into their blackmail trick! Take care

Family Affair
by: OneThirdCultureKid

This story sounds familiar because when I refused after doing a little digging into a certain so-called oil rig engineer's request for money to get off an oil rig to go back to the United States to see his young daughter, he said the same thing to me two years ago. I hadn't heard from him since I reported and blocked him.

Family Affair, - family, no / Liars yes.
by: Kevin B

Once you send any $, you are on a list.

These people are angry and upset with you?
Scammers are never upset with themselves, low life looking for lonely, vulnerable people to ruin their lives.

At least he picked an original name, not.

Cut off this communication, soon others will approach, maybe other industry, but will play on emotion. Widowed, wife cheated with best friend, kid with nanny or grandma, he is a millionaire, needs money from you to release, etc. They are groups in boiler rooms calling and communicating from Nigeria, etc. Follow this website, you will learn.

Happy New Year, all.

Find local romance and do not send ANYTHING. Gift cards, steam cards, I tunes, etc.

I had been chatting with William Smith 002592@gmail com. I had mentioned him a while back on here. Anyway he had been telling me how he is so cold and dying etc, on a rig in Scotland run by Russians and they don't take care of him properly.

He asked me to send money so he could buy electic jackets but it never happened lol. Anyway his son who is 11 kelvin smith 8016403@gmail.com had messaged me once and shared pics of him but never heard from him again.

Anyway at Christmas I sent kelvin a merry Christmas message as he is in Birmingham Alabama and said his nanny walked out and took the money and he is alone. Apparetnly this does not bother his dad anyway Christmas I messaged the boy and he answers me and says his Christmas would be more fun if he had a 200.00 game card and his dad told him one day I may be his mom so I am to send him a 200.oo card cause I am his mom.

The answer was no and I never heard from him or his dad hen last night I get a message from William wanting to know why I refused to send his son the 200.00 card that he sees nothing wrong with kelvin asking me for the money.

Willaim said I have severe trust issues haaaaaa so just letting you all know it seems father and son are both working together for money from people and kelvin is only 11!!!! I dont have a cell phone so I was never able to send any other info or pics or messaages. William has white hair, heavy set, says he is a diver contractor. Kelvin has short brown hair, slender, plays video games and is not crazy about sports or much of anything outdoors but plays golf with his dad

On Facebook I saw things I hated. Friend requests all were SCAMMERS.

They remove what we need to see. And allow these
felons to go about stealing. LinkedIn, Pinterest, these guys are on all them. There was a lady who met guy on Pinterest and he took 10,000 and was about to get more but I got to her before she sent more. Convinced her he is scammer.

Just something weird about all of this how they
get to us. We really all want True Love and they have come up with LOVE SCRIPT that pulls us in. We believe their LIES.

LIES OF WORLD WIDE WEB

Once you are caught in the web the poisonous spider gets you. Hard to get away. He makes it easy for you once you have no more to give and suddenly one day he is gone no warning.

Cowards behind a Computer with free phone numbers. That seems to be as everyone else's but they are all fake thought out well.

That phone situation should be monitored. Just like social media they are welcoming the crooks
to steal from the innocent.

Post here and most importantly turn these guys in with multiple names, numbers and pictures. Turn in all your texts and let it be known how mean they get and leave you suddenly.

WHEN HE HAS ASKED FOR FUNDS YOU DO NOT GIVE IN AND HE GOES QUIET FOR DAYS HE IS PLAYING ON YOUR EMOTIONS THEN YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN HE CONTINUES AGAIN WHOOING FOR ALL HE CAN STEAL.

He used Photos of a man who is friends with the actress Jamie Lee Curtis and had pictures with her and that’s how I caught him. I was very invested in it and also my heart was invested in it. You will get over it as I eventually did.

Same here. The same guy sent me WhatsApp in a different USA Hp no. And this time he asked for iTunes gift card for S$700. The strange thing is how he can manage to get himself free from the ENI company since he had been asking for help to loan him USD 10000.

I told him that he is a scammer and showed him all his different accounts on Facebook. Without admitting he is wrong he comments other scammers have used his photos to scam others.

Oh Cheez, how can he be so thick skin and not admit his crime. I have already proven him as a scammer and yet he doesn't admit what he is doing. He still keeps asking me to trust him as he will able to pay me back the money which I have loaned him.

Hi this guys assures me he is genuine and I am unable to find any scam pictures of him even on a google reverse search - he states that he owns the machine that is broken and it will take 10000 dollars to repair - if I can lend 5000 then the company will wait for the rest until the contract is over and he can then pay.

Something tells me this is a scam as he says he’s feeling Eli well with the worry and I am The one that can help him and again the alarm bells ring. When I state I won’t send the Money he says I’m wicked and he will be over to the UK for me as soon as the job is over. I am all he lives for and If I can’t help he may as well end his life.

Then asked me for money as he said he was concerned as he could not get hold of his daughter & wanted to send her a phone so he could talk to her.

He begged & pleased with me & suggested Amazon gift, money gram & I pushed for bank details only, but he made up loads of excuses & eventually gave in & provided bank details for a UK Barclays account.

He asked for £1,000 for a phone for his daughter I sent 1p & he has now finally left me alone. The bank account belongs to a BM Francis & the address he provided in London is supported living flats!

Oil Rig Workers are direct deposit paid.
by: Kevin B

You cannot be on a rig unless you are paid direct to your account. They never have to pay for equipment, food, etc. Most Rigs are 3 weeks on then at least two weeks off before going back for a maximum of three weeks again.

Tell him you are calling the coast guard or police to bring you food immediately and they will prosecute the company.

He is not real. I often state that the scammers have first and last names they made up and put together like Larry Scott, etc.

I just get so frustrated how these pieces of garbage continue to ruin lonely men and women’s lives.

Never send any form of money, gift cards, Bitcoin etc. Find a possible lover locally. You will not find a millionaire looking for a woman in some other place in the world.

It upsets me that all the women are using their valuable time finding love overseas when men like me in so cal are possibly looking for a match for themselves, and we could be a perfect match.

Good luck and Merry Christmas.

He was saying one of the similar scammer's story at this website by saying he has loaded with money and now he is on a project with ENI SPA and lately his project failed because his drilling machine had damaged by the wave and he can't access his account to pay for the replacement.

He is now asking for a loan for financing his equipment and once he is being released he will be able to pay you back with interest. He declared himself as an adopted child to a couple from Hong Kong with US Citizenship. His wife and his daughter were burnt to death by accident and he has no friends to be able to get help.

My girlfriend trusted him so much till he is asking for more from her. Lately, I saw him on the various Facebook accounts with different profiles. He is now enjoying his life with the money which he had scammed from various people. He is even using an excuse to say his passport has been seized by ENI Spa for not allowing him to go back to USA and he will be place to Jail.

Beware of this Chinese Guy, he is a world scammer and check on his friends whom he added in his Facebook. Most of them are from either LAOs, Cambodia or Thailand. I feel this is a Scam network so beware of his group of friends too.

I have to say when I was talking to my scammer he conned me into buying him an electric jacket and I fell for it. They are expensive and my rigger was in the gulf of Mexico and he also needed money for meds so it never ends with these scammers.

My scammer had told me that his nanny ran out of food for his daughter but I found out that she was also feeding her family too. I gave him info for food banks if things were that bad but of course he told me they were for the poor. Well when the scammers take all our money what do we have to do except go to one so I figured that is where she could go.

Told me that he’s a mud engineer on contract in Turkey and is originally from Miami. The intelligence of his chatting was beneath that of his plays, probably because of language issues he couldn’t hide by using the ScrabbleGo boosters.

His stats were better than what you would expect from a scammer but I think they know how we recognize them and they are evolving. When I read about oil rig scammers I blocked "Tommy" before he asked for money.

Michael Morrison
by: Anonymous

He told me he was a doctor and called Michael Morrison and sent me pictures of himself and said he worked in a busy hospital in Amsterdam and being a nurse myself I asked him a few medical questions he could answer if he really was a doctor.

Anyway he always had an excuse why he couldn't face time me then after 2 months I told him if he really loved me he would show himself to me or I was blocking him as he uses Instagram hangout watsapp and dating sites so he told me he would tell me the truth if I still spoke to him.

I agreed to so I could see his real identity and he video called me and he was 29 not 39 like he told me and when he was the doctor Nigerian and his name was Tejiri TJ for short he had a twin brother Tega and lived in delta region of Nigeria which is one of the poorest.

I asked him how many women he had done this to and he said over 100 but as Michael Morrison 20 and the rest were under different names. He showed me where he lived and said why they do it and they ask for dollars as their money is naria and they got more naria on the black market for selling gift cards. I spoke to him for 3 hours on video call. I told him what he was doing was wrong and he said there is no jobs and every boy and girl between the age of 16 to 32 do this.

I asked him why he said no money here no food they have to buy gas for their generator or they dont get light in their homes. He said sometimes white woman as he referred to them are always over 40 as they are easier and he said they think they are talking to a man but it could be a woman.

The room he was in there was 6 men and 3 women online while he was speaking to me as doctors, oil workers etc and he told me everything I said to him doesn't make him feel guilty because you would do anything to feed your family.

I told him I couldn't speak to him anymore and that I was adding it to the site so women were warned and he said they would just find new pictures and new names but he asked me as he told me the truth could he stay in touch and maybe make a real relationship as he could come to the uk then and be happy and rich.

I ended the call and blocked him then so ladies please please be careful as none of these men are real and they are all fake so stop sending the money xx

Hi

If you are asked for Bitcoin online from someone you have never met in person do not pay!

BTC is increasing in popularity as a payment method due to a rapid price increase over the past 7-8 months.

I'd have liked to provide an update on George Martin and what is a well planned crypto currency theft scheme. We are still at each other and the only way to say it is that it is outright theft. You can have a read on the progress I've made at the link below;

The link to their page is not fully disclosed. If you figure it out DO NOT OPEN using a commone browser. They'll steal whatever personal data it may contain

The part about Robert Green claiming to work for ExxonMobil sounds very familiar, but one guy who told me this didn't tell me right away he worked for the company, until I asked him, nor did he claim to have worked on scaffolding on an oil rig.

He did, however, claim that his wife died of cancer (didn't say what kind) and did the "Can we move to Hangouts?" thing, too.

So this guy befriends me on Facebook and moved to hangouts. Sends next picture and even called me once. But first he wanted me to loan him money and I said no then it was he needed it for his son. Got the son on hangouts as well.

I still refused and then it was he was going to ship gold to me to hold onto and I just had to help him with the cost. No then back to his son who needs help and in Germany working but from Norway.

First he said his wife died of cancer then the alleged son said mom died in a car accident and so when I questioned him I got the response it was too painful. He claims his bank account is frozen and needs money to get back to Norway. Still telling him NO now and I have trust issues lol. Claims to love me and got the alleged son saying the same. Strange they both come on at same time lol

Hi

If an oil rig worker is seriously injured on the rig the oil company has medical insurance to cover all costs. The worker would be flown off the rig to the nearest hospital for treatment.

No. The Russians would do this too.

The reason why you are being told "he" follows a different set of rules is simple. It is a story of lies and deception from people who have no idea what they are talking about.

Using I'm hungry it is a lie to travel, eat well drink party and if i mentioned the rest you would give up on men for forever. He is a very experienced scammer.

DO I LOOK LIKE A BUSTA TO YOU?
by: Anonymous

OK,this Pedro Moris picture is my Dave Francis. So I cant say i was tricked exactly. A man named Dave Francis started following me on my instagram account. At first he sent a message stating that he didnt know if he should envy me or fear me. I found this to be quite peculiar seeing how I had no idea who he was and we had never spoke DM before.

Im just a friendly southern girl that likes to be silly. Some time passed and to be quite honest he never crossed my mind again. You see I am not lonely, or sad, or looking for attention. Then around March 2020 CoronaVirus in full force. He began messaging me, more and more often. We spoke about so many different things. I felt that he needed a friend although he gave no sob story, but he did check on me frequently. I started to feel kinda bad because I can appreciate being checked on and just asking how my day was. We had the most brilliant conversations.

I finally asked where he was from, and I was told Moscow, Russia. Interesting, so we continued but it was him that always reached out to me. Kinda what I do for many of my followers. Im there to listen and give hope and share my love and light. I found him to very intelligent however his page was sketchy and quite fake I thought with few pics all of himself and i believe a friend always throwing up the peace sign.

He claims to have a 4 year old daughter named Vera, I believe her mother was a model who didn't have time for her. Who knows. So around May he called me and said he was going to be leaving for work and didn't ask many questions, he just wanted to make sure that we could stay in touch. I think he was maybe getting feelings. So I thought what the hell, so hangouts is were we ended up and continued on. Unfortunately Im just me and im very open and forthcoming about my life. He writes the most beautiful, heartfelt poetry and we share something I feel he is quite intelligent and thats what I was craving.

I started noticing him asking little extra questions, I knew he thought he was slick. Many I answered truthfully others i just made up. Why not he does. I guess about mid August apparently his hard work was in jeopardy as a dangerous situation occurred. An oil rig had caught massive fire. He sent a pic of the back of a fireman amidst the flames. It was clearly photoshopped. Again i didn't care I asked no questions because well Im now a little dependent on my new friend who is cute and feeds my craving of the conversations i need. I mean he knows everything about me and my family. He even gives me great sound advice and I appreciated it.

He finally had fallen in love with me. Was not my intentions but its hard not to. So he wants to marry me, whaat!!! Yay, Ive never been married not even on my bucket list. But still, I like the dude so he wants to put me on allowance. I declined his offer because well im not a gold digger. I never looked him up or really pried for any information. Until yesterday, oh silly Dave dont you know, ive always known what you were. I just wondered why you hadnt tried to ask me for much. I believe he thinks he has got enough info to possibly try to open an account in my name.

He doesnt, we still talk as of now but quite frankly he is as good as done. He hasn't hurt me in the slightest but reading what he has done to others. Im LIVID. This babyface boy I feel needs to meet the United States FBI. Hey who knows maybe he can get a free US marshal ride 1st class. I hope he brings my engagement ring.

He is good though, ladies beware. Oh yeah he calls me a Gem all the time, he always asks if Ive eaten and his favorite food is chicken. Thanks a lot Dave my dreams of being a Russian Mob princess has been crushed.

David Cairns/Joel Maier/Bruce Adams
by: Anonymous

David Cairns, Joel Maier and Bruce Adams are very likely the same person.

I have posted about my experience of David Cairns and how I have reported him to Parship, Our Time dating and Match.com.

As David Cairns he has purported to be a Senior Petro-chemical engineer working for BP living in South London and needs. £100k.....I am a widow so I guess he saw me as having that kind of money. Even if I did I would still never have fallen for his story as I am experienced in project management and know every project has a built in contingency and also individuals are never held personally liable!

He has also presented him self as an Analyst living in Northampton and Milton Keynes and again as an engineer living in South London. Someone on this site met him through Elite Singles and he described himself as living in Manchester and was a Scientific Researcher who needed £30k.

I corresponded with him for approximately 4 months and received poetry, daily phone calls, love songs etc. Even a sexually explicit video when he realised he wasn't going to get anything. He asked me to do the same and I refused knowing I would be open to blackmail if I did.

He is a consummate liar and is very well practised at scamming. If you have not already done so please report him to the site where you met him and the relevant authorities. Although he may have been unsuccessful obtaining money from us, he would have been successful in the past and no doubt again in the future.

He probably has victims who are too ashamed to report him and are suffering financially and emotionally. He needs to be stopped!

This guy probably blocked you on LinkedIn to keep you from reporting him to the site as a fake person.

His story is similar to my scammer Phil Odonnel. I’m glad you blocked him and got out of it before he robbed you of your livelihood.

I have received several LinkedIn requests from oil rig engineers and UN doctors all because I accepted one from Phil. I think LinkedIn has some kind of programming that matched me with these other fake scumbags because I accepted Phil. Since it happened to me, I don’t accept anyone I don’t know.

Joel Maier - Avoid Contact With Him
by: Anonymous

I was messaged in my LinkedIn account by Joel Maier. His profile said he was an oil rig engineer with Cairn Energy. Now his profile was very scant, not at all what I expected to see from someone with 30 years of experience, and it was recently created just 2 days before me started messaging me. (Red flag #1)

He claims to be 58, with a deceased wife and son. He would never provide any means to verify him. (Red flag #2).

Educated in Canada, raised in Germany, but born in the US. Please note: his entire family is deceased, which means any avenue to investigate him through are dead ends. (Red flag #3)

After messaging back and forth for a week, he wanted to leave LinkedIn and message on Google Hangouts. His grammar, syntax, and punctuation were slightly off (Red flag #4).

I waited another week before I went to the Hangouts app. We messaged for several more weeks, and then he started telling me he was in love with me. (Red flag #5)

Meanwhile, my best friend had a background run on him and nothing come up! (Red flag #6)

We FacedTimed and he matched his picture, but he was claiming that was proof he was legit. (Red flag #7)

Now fast forward another week. My entire family and network of friends are warning me about him. I am in total agreement, as I’ve seen all the red flag warnings. I know he’s a con man, but what was his end game? Curious to know, I remained in contact.

Well I found out when his contract in the North Sea off of Scotland is coming to an end soon. However, his exit paperwork is in a strong box in Belgium. I’m the only one he trusts with this and needs me to contact the company so his box can be delivered to me. Yeah right...that’s the end game.

I’ve blocked him from Hangouts, and removed the app entirely. He’s blocked me on LinkedIn, which is funny.

If you’re been approached by Joel Maier, avoid him! He is a con man! Don’t fall for it!

Also, NEVER disclose personal information, which includes your phone number! I only disclosed my e-mail, nothing else.

Please be safe, as there are many unscrupulous people prowling the internet.

Kevin, I couldn't agree with you more because I've encountered such guys. You mentioned that these "oil rig engineers" claim that they lost their wives to some illness, that they have one or two children, etc. I've read those lines, but with a twist: One of them claimed that he needed a permission with money to leave the rig to visit his daughter, Lily, who fell ill.

Guess what I found out two years ago? He stole a picture of a young white/Caucasian girl in a hospital bed that was on IG and used it. I gave the real guy a heads up about someone using his pictures afterwards.

Since then, the real guy whose pics this scammer used has protected his IG account.

They are not liable for equipment
by: Kevin B

This man is obviously not an oil engineer.

Same story getting sympathy saying wife and has two kids to try to catch your heart. They may even have some funny kid to call you if that’s gonna prove it’s a true story. Ridiculous.

Whatever name they use whatever pictures they post are not them.

They are hoping to get you emotionally involved so you won’t listen to common sense from people who love you like friends and relatives.

That is why they want you talking to no one and saying that everyone is jealous of you.

Even if what’s going on in your head is that they love you, people that love you will love your friends and family.

I say this often if you heard your daughter or close friend going through such a thing, would you encourage them to stop contact with everybody and just believe this guy who’s not an oil rig engineer? Of course not! Practice intelligence not emotion, when you become emotionally involved your become a scam victim. No longer will you hear common sense.

Not that it matters, since he is not an engineer, If you research online the number of oil engineers are going to decrease as more and more drones are designed to do things on your engineers used to do. Again remember the company that owns the rig is responsible for the equipment never financially responsible to the oil rig engineer. They may even send you a video of terrible things on oil rigs. They are just old videos.

Then they will go back to being military men or doctors doing the scams. The reason you posted what you posted is that you know it sounds funny and wrong and it is. Good luck and stay away from them. Believe me when this guy is gone, they will hand your folder over to the next guy who is the scammer and know what works with you and what doesn’t work with you. But they will always tell you not to tell anybody about them.

Good luck and God Bless.

Also do not post or do anything stupid they may end up on the Internet as a way of blackmailing you in the future.

Well like the lady whose post I read previously.I was first contacted on FaceBook asking me to friend him which I did. Mistake no 1. Then later he wanted me to get on Hangouts and I did. We talked back and forth on Hangouts for the past 2weeks and after about 4 days he was madly in love with me. Of course the red flags were flying high.

He sent me pictures of his son and daughter who live with their Aunt while he is on the rig. So last night he told me that he is retiring and we will be together. He said he would have about Two Million dollars to buy us a new home and car. Oh yes he also told me he was from Denmark and came here in 1987. Wife and him divorced and she later died from cancer.

I sent him some messages in Danish and he replied in Danish so I thought maybe he might be on the up and up. That is until this morning he sent me a message saying he was out of connections which is money and asked me to send him an itunes card for $500.00.

I said sure honey and then blocked him. He aint getting in my pocketbook.

BEWARE MARTIN SMITH!!
by: Anonymous

My mother has been being scammed by a man calling himself Martin Smith. Posting just in case there is another woman looking for information on this guy. Unfortunately, my mother is still very much struggling to accept that he is a scammer despite the evidence.

Same story as everyone else here. He messaged her on wheel of fortune gaming app and quickly moved to third party apps like Skype and hangouts, email and text/calls. Widowed, older teen/young adult daughter in boarding school.

Oil rig engineer who has been in the gulf of Mexico for a year and was in Yemen prior to that. He says he is from Nj but originally from Denmark. Once when I had him on the phone I tripped him up and he said he was from "Spain South America".

He clearly missed geography class. He also has an accent that sounds Nigerian to me. Has convinced my mother that he needs her money in order to get "his lock box" of money and then he will pay her back. She has been robbed of tens of thousands of dollars and counting at this point. Ftc and fbi reports were made, unfortunately he has his hooks in her.

This has just about destroyed our relationship but I figure if I can share the name maybe I can help someone else out there as he is 100% doing this to several women at the same time as he often gets his facts mixed up.

BEWARE MARTIN SMITH and any of the low life scum like him.

Thomas Long Upset????
by: Anonymous

Stop, block, Do not accept calls from This man or the supposed kid etc!

He just about got you. He wants no one who cares about you or loves you and is looking out for your well-being involved of course. Think about it. Get ready because after you send him off, you will be contacted again. And the next gentleman who supposedly has all these features you want in a gentleman will begin by telling you never to speak of it what you have together and how others will only be jealous of you.

That is why they tell you not tell anyone else. This is the most important thing a scammer does is distance you from people who are rational and have no emotional involvement. Your emotion is what leads to the mistakes. They have cost men and women millions of dollars.

The only stake I have in this is that I lost a woman to one of these pieces of garbage who of course never met her but took her money. And thank God I warned her of the next man who
contacted her just like I’m warning you.

I before E just Except after C she like we’ve learned in school.

Intelligence before emotion. If your daughter was telling you about a man in her life that was going through what you’re going through would you advise her to continue with this man and make sure that she never contacted you or anybody else again about this relationship?

Anyone in contact with Thomas Long
by: Anonymous

A guy name Thomas Long hit me up on Scrabble go..same story oil rig engineer, working off the coast, and about to retire (after this last job) 12 year old being taken care of by nanny because mom was horrible to her. He has sent me a gift (flowers, bear, and candy) and also says he wants to meet me next month which means he would be flying to my home state before flying to New Jersey to see his daughter.

Will talk to me on the phone and via text. I have also received calls and texts from someone claiming to be his daughter and she is asking me if Im going to be her new mom. He refuses face time, and also got upset when I mentioned him to somebody else.

To the woman who asked whether she should report a scammer and to whom: Yes, absolutely, you should report him. As to whom to report the said scammer to, maybe the FBI or another agency. I think the FBI and other agencies investigate these scams, don't they? Did he ask you to do something illegal, such as receive something?

Oil Rig engineer in Germany
by: Anonymous

Met on Word Wars game. Claims to be on Oil Rig in Germany and asked me to communicate with him on Hangouts.

Professed love quickly and appeared to be kind, loving and very interested in me. At a very low and lonely point in my life, I have been communicating back and forth on Hangouts and am quite ashamed of some of the "sexting" chats that have been going on between us. Definitely something I have never done before.

Claims he cannot access his bank account until he comes back to the US and wants me to send him an AX gift card so we can keep on communicating online. So far I have been able to put him off telling him I am waiting to get next paycheck.

Should I report this person and to whom?

Hi, Anonymous, That Derek Johnson Spielberg with his claims that he was robbed and beaten in South Africa and had no money or ID sounds like Raymond Chadwick, or someone who stole that name and the pic of a handsome, tall, blonde American man two years ago.

Notice they all have 2 first names. They immediately wanted to go to WhatsApp or Hangouts
Everyone of them had their wife die tragically.
They had one or two children, who was being taken care of in the states by a nanny, etc. They worked in another country.

The same stories, they are so obvious, and they can’t spell or write English well. They start sentence with.....Am, instead of I am.

Please be aware of these scammers, we have to get the word out there and educate. They are heartless and only want to steal as much money from you as they can and they don’t care about you.

Falling in love with a picture

To everyone who is posting on this site. First of all, do not blame yourself. The individuals are consummate liars, this is how they live and indeed choose to live. They prey on people who are vulnerable, are adept at identifying people who are vulnerable and exploit those vulnerabilities to their own advantage.

They will make you feel wanted, loved and adored. They promise you stability and security. This is organised crime. They often operate as a gang.

If you have given money the chances of you getting this back are slim. Sorry! But do not let shame stop you from reporting them to the relevant authorities. While they were scamming you, they were also scamming somebody else

The tactics, the stories are all the same. Speak to your friends and family, you need their support right now. Be strong and don't let these individuals win.

By working together and sharing our experiences and the names these individuals use we are working to expose these individuals and see them tried for their crimes. They are criminals and let's not forget that.

Stay strong everyone x

Falling in love with just a picture ☹️
by: Anonymous

Well for me I got a friends request on Facebook I accepted because I saw him with his son and he’s a very handsome man so about three days his Facebook page was off completely. However like an idiot I believed everything he told me and he sent me pictures as he was oil engineer on a rig.

He gave me his name as James Ethan and he even gave me his son Scott Ethan's email address so that I could talk to him. James had lost his wife when she gave birth to Scott and he was looking for someone to have that motherly instinct with his son so I feel like an idiot because I was going through a separation and yes he is by far a great romantic person.

However after talking to him his voice did not seem American and he said that he was French but he sounded more like from Nigeria. He didn’t ask me for the money but he said that because of talking to me on the rig he was fined $10,000 and he had to pay them. That struck me really weird but I don’t have that kind of money and I didn’t agree or did he even ask me for money.

But what’s most horrible about this is that I fell in love with his picture and now I’m a little heartbroken and now I wish I know who this guy in the picture was as I would love to meet him.

How sad can a world get. I’m just so upset and sad that this happened to me

Scammed woman
by: Anonymous cynthia Anne Crider

Hello. I have really had an eye opening to all of this. Im going to add a few names to the list.
Robert Foster.
Bruce Mcdonell.
Bryan Rosh.
Duggan Dudu.

I have also been a weak state of mind when this happened. Each story started sounding the same. I have recently had my account drained due to information given to supposedly get someone home. I will have to apply for a new credit card number but in the last 8 months the names keep adding up.

People claiming to be oil riggers, military officers, financial planners etc. Stock photos are used. They claim they are widowers with children to raise. Or they may have received a cash box that needs to be claimed that contains money, jewels, etc.

But they can't access the lock box to pay for shipping fees. They may name you as their beneficiary and you would need the code to unlock the box. They may even show you claim tickets with your name printed on it. They may request an ebay card, steam card or iTunes card for payment.

My recent scam which took my funds from my disability check was done using a chime bank card, which gives a cash advance with no penalty. I have been sent blank checks for me to cash, checking accounts created with my name on the check.

Its been a nightmare that has destroyed my 31 year marriage and relationships with my family. I did my research a little to late. That's why I'm sharing this with you. I still trying to find out who to contact to try and get any amount of funds back. If anyone knows please let me know.

And fyi all men have been of foreign decent. ALL!!!LADIES please don't ever feel like you're not worth the time to the one you're married to. Abusive words from my husband caused me to reach out for kinder words. Nothing more. If you have a big heart they will respond to you. Using any means available, usually the hardship of others, especially children.

Prayers and luck to recover what I've lost, monetarily. And hopefully in time my simple life back.

I posted about David Cairns a few weeks ago, and everything you have said echoes my experience of him although at the time he was a petri-chemical engineer leading a huge contract for BP and needed to raise $100,000.

When I started to give him the cold shoulder as I knew he was a scammer his communication intensified and he sent a sexually explicit video of himself and asked me to do the same. I refused as I knew he would attempt blackmail.

He also asked me to open a bank account and I decided to give him a taste of his own medicine and initially played along only to then tell him I knew him to be a liar, cheat and a fraud! I then blocked him but have continued to vet dating sites and report him.

Ladies, he has been on Parship, Our Time and Match. He will say he lives in Northampton, South London and Milton Keynes. Now he has moved to Manchester!

This guy makes contacts on Elite Singles in the UK. Says he is based in Manchester, working as a research scientist for the petro chemical industry.

Very romantic, sends poetry every day, loves bombs then goes cold. Handsome, sends photos of a very attractive man. He sends an autobiography detailing his life. Born to an Australian Mother and Texan father, his alcoholic father dies when he is 5 and he is raised in the Netherlands by his adoring mother. He moves back to Texas and marries his high school sweetheart but the marriage fails after she miscarries. He then travels the world looking for answers.

Very spiritual. Promises to explore the world with you, that you are his world.

He has to go to Saud Arabia on a job, the project goes wrong and he needs £30,000. When you don't comply he goes quiet. He makes contact again to say he needs your bank account details in order for him to send you money so you can pay his UK suppliers.

Be careful ladies, he is charming, bright, sexy and too good to be true. Everything is on his terms, he will only contact when he wants, and it's either for money or sex chat.

Black handsome man named Richard Bakker states he’s originally from the Netherlands. He followed his wife to California in 2007. Divorced her in 2017 after he found her cheating. Moved to NJ, but he’s on an oil rig on the Golf of Mexico.

He goes by Smiley on meets.com. He pulled me in with the Godly man looking for a Godly woman to spend the rest of his life with. He almost stole my heart when he continued to ask about my child. He was so interested in being a family. Several days ago he asked for me to send money for a worker in need and if I had cash app.

Within seconds my heart fell and I immediately told him I didn’t have it. He said that I didn’t even ask how much, then told me it was only $400. I said I didn’t have it and tried to ignore it till the next day when he showed me a picture of his bank account for over 6million, but the money couldn’t get to him fast enough.

Get this, he offered to pay me back $800 if I could cash app him the money that he so Urgently needed! The end result was me telling him he must be a scammer or if not a terrible person for asking a single woman with a child and 2 elderly parents to take care of for money.

He said he couldn’t believe I would think that of him and he lent money to lots of women and never called them names. He said that I broke us up and he wanted to know how much "his love" would have his back if needed. Lmbo. I guess I failed.

Haven’t talked to him since this happened yesterday. Ladies beware. He says he’s a self contractor ready to retire and go into Real estate. His contract will be done on Nov 23rd.

But before that conversation, he wanted to use my account so that the Shell Company could deposit some money into my account for repairs he needed for his drilling machine.

I guess he thought I was a complete idiot! He may have gotten several Steam & Amazon cards out of me but I was not about to give him my bank information. When I got tired of his game and came to my sense, I closed my Hangout site and blocked him from my email when he threatens to post my nude pictures.

Oil Rig Project Manager
by: Anonymous

I have been texting with an oil rig project manager, just turned 63, no kids, no family, divorced in 2015 who doesn't want to be alone. He started texting me thru LinkedIn which I thought was unusual, and he sent me pics and he is very handsome.

We have been texting almost every day for over 3 months and talking on the phone a couple of times, but his voice does not sound like I thought it would. Claims he loves me and has made so many romantic promises then he asked me how much I made a year and I told him and then I asked him how much he made off of the recent contract that is about to end and was shocked that it almost $5M.

I told him I couldn't retire yet so he asked me how much I had on my 401K and I told him not much, then all of a sudden no more texts then 4 days later I got 1 text saying that there was an accident at work and he even sent a pic of him with both arms in bandages and explained about the accident and then nothing more.

I really fell in love with this guy but I am seeing some red flags and as much as I want to believe he was for real I don't think he is. He is working on an secluded oil rig offshore from Oslo, Norway.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

To all of us that has been deeply hurt by these lowlife scammers, they will get what they deserve someday. They prey on loneliness and steal your heart and your money. They have no morals, they have no heart.

They leave us heartbroken and devastated. But we are all stronger and better than that and them. We will survive. It may not be easy at first, but there is a fine line between love and hate and now we have gone to the other side and we have learned from our horrible experience.

Now we are wiser and stronger and they will not do this to us again. We can only hope they choke on their money they have stolen from us. God is looking down on them and knows what they are doing.

But remember we are much much better than them. So we will not let them destroy our lives moving forward. Let’s not think about them one more minute. Why should they steal our thoughts, our hearts and our time. They are not worth it and we are stronger now.

Put your trust and faith in our God and he will bring us through this, because if God is for us, who can be against us.

They will get what they deserve.

So hold your head up, get up and move on. There will be a good man or woman in your life someday. An honest caring person who loves you. Not a thieving heartless low life criminal.

God bless and we will prevail. Remember we are stronger now !!!!!!

Hi. I'm sorry that you had to get your heart broken like that. I've not heard of the man, but I looked his name up on DuckDuckGo and there's no man with the name Harry Sledge Wilson. It sounds as though he looked a couple of guys' names up and called himself that.

This guy raises so many red flags from what you're telling us. The first one is what 17 year old needs a nanny to raise him, unless that 17 year old needs someone to make sure he or she gets to school on time, do his or her homework, etc.?

The second is that claim that his wife died. I've come across those claims, too. They only ask for money when they suddenly find themselves in a bad situation.

All I can say is report him and then block him.

I was also scammed !!
by: Anonymous

At my lowest point in life, lonely, I was playing a friendly game of scrabble with a matched up play, next thing I know this handsome man was talking kind words to me going by the name Harry Sledge Wilson, that works in Ontario Canada. We talked for weeks on hangouts, and he told me about his nanny taking care of his 17 year old back home in Washington DC.

He was an engineer on an oil rig in the middle of the sea, and he first sent me pictures that I thought with his phone, and he then told me he was working out and dropped it in some water. I searched this particular photo he sent me and there were to other men, the same photo, the same hands, the same foam coffee cup by the water on the oil rig.

He told me his wife passed, his son needed a mother, and I fell for it, but he hasn't asked for any money, but I have confronted him with that picture and he said someone stole his pictures on Instagram.

To make a long story short, he called me and he sounds just like a Nigerian!! I sent him so many photos!! He sent me a pic of his thingy!! It was white, I didn't know how do they get these dick pics and make an innocent lady think it's really theirs??

My heart was so devastated!! Has anyone else heard of this man?? Please be aware, no sites are safe!!

I’m sorry you that he still posted your photos. I hope you are able to talk to your family members and explain to them that you were being scammed. You need to heal and I hope they can support you during this time.

Please know that these scammers are scumbags and he took advantage of you. You are not alone and many people are being scammed especially now during this pandemic. I know how you feel believe me, I couldn’t believe I fell in love with a fake person and sent nude photos to him.

He sent me a nude photo and a nude video too! And I felt I was going to spend the rest of my life with him after he returns from the oil rig in Dubai.

Please get some help to get over this experience. We are human and we all make mistakes. Don’t let this experience get the best of you. Don’t let him continue to take advantage of you by giving in.

Get some help, talk about it with someone you trust and one who will not judge you. Believe in yourself and that you can overcome this. You are a good person and you deserve to be loved and supported by family and friends.

I believe in you...stay strong! Good luck and God bless you.

Block him on everything from your cell phone and any social media and Hangouts. Also report him to Facebook and Instagram. Stop communicating with him. I had a similar experience since I also had photos...it’s called sextortion.

My scammer threatened to send my photos to my company and family and friends. I called the local police department and the officer recommended I change my cell number and email address. I blocked him and reported him on LinkedIn and WhatsApp.

I called his bluff and didn’t pay a single cent. It’s been two months since I had the nightmarish experience and I have not heard from him.

Please don’t talk to him anymore. He’s a scammer who was just taking advantage of your vulnerabilities. I fell in love with my scammer too. The man in the photos was handsome and he said sweet nothings to me every day.

However, after two months, I realized he was just after my money and he tried 3 times! But I didn’t give him a single dime. It’s been 2 months now since I blocked him and every now and then, I would remember some of our conversations.

I’m overcoming a broken heart and also reassuring myself that I am strong enough to get over him and learn from my mistakes.

Stay strong...you too can overcome this!

His name is doctor justin moy. An orthopedic surgeon in somalia. USA navy working under the UN and on contract with an orphanage. He claims hiss wife died in a car accident. I have many photos of him with his two daughters. I fell in love. Then he asked me to send him $100 amx from Walmart.

He needed to pay for more space on his phone. I sent it. Got the card photo back and front and sent it to him. Weeks later he started boo hooing about his daughter caught malaria and could not access his funds because of security so I sent him $1,200 to a TD bank account in ma. Sent cash.

I did not disclose any of my bank info. It was sent to a woman called wannipha Harlow who runs a takeout Thai mobile restaurant.

Really? What a fool I was. Look out as he is so handsome and so charming. Easy to fall in love with. I am finding it really difficult to let him go but I have to

Has anyone heard of these two scammers on Scrabble go. Morgan Russell and Morrison Aldelbert or Morrison Aldelbert Gilbert.

I had no idea this stuff went on when they wanted to start playing scrabble with me. I am so stupid. I talked to them for a few weeks and then Morgan Russell stared telling me his 14 year old son Kevin lived in Germany with his 95 year old mother, (really) and also his wife died and no other family.

Wanted me to lend him money to send to his son and mother as they were starving, but didn’t say how much he wanted, and also wanted an Itune card for 1000.00. When I told him I would never send money to a man he got very angry so I blocked him.

Then this morrison was grooming me for something, I’m not sure what. But he did not ask me for money and said he was 69, sent pictures that looked like 3 different men. His wife died 10 years ago and daughter was just recently killed by her drug addict husband and he was raising his 6 year old granddaughter who was in London in school with Nanny.

Both of them loved me so much and wanted to get married. Sent many love letters and just BS. Talked to Morrison twice on the phone which he sounded like a young Nigerian. Sent him scammer information and he got furious and started swearing at me. He was texting me on an app called Telegram, so I deleted it and blocked him also.

Never sent them one nickel. What is so sad is that they are stealing innocent men and women’s pictures and using them. I feel so stupid for even talking to them. But I can see how a lonely woman could get caught up in there scams, with all their professing to love them and marry them, they can steal anyone’s pictures from social media and Google photos.

They use a hundred different names and are ruthless and cruel. They don’t care how they use you, so please be careful of these hateful people.

TO: NOT SURE
by: Sprintcargranny

I’m sure the money he put in the account wasn’t his, but money he scammed from some woman. If your name is on the account you will be the one to go to jail not that scammer. Take drivers license number to police and see if it’s real. Mine did the same and it wasn’t real.

Why would he need you to set up a bank account. They can do it online. Yes, they have internet available. I know you want to believe all he says but, take it from a woman that did all this - it’s a scam. You will be the one in trouble. You know somethings wrong or you wouldn’t be on this site.

I know all the gut feelings that you don’t want to believe until it’s too late you want believe what we say. HE is lying!! But, you don’t want to hear that.

Surely the only way a bank setup an account for you was your name and information on it which if he has access to the account he now has access to your personal information. Money put into the account by him or his mule isn’t his it is some other womans he has borrowed it from thinking he is going to pay her back.

You will be in trouble for being a mule for him. Lord help you.

I think he is a scammer. If I were you, I would block him immediately before he asks for more money and robs you blind. Many scammers are using social media to find their victims. My scammer found me in LinkedIn and I sent him an Amazon gift card.

Good morning my love;

Don't just love me, but show me it keeps me going and makes me growing, it makes me living, it make me looking happily and lovely, strong and nice. You are my medicine, your love makes me stronger. My dream; when you wake up in the morning, kiss me on the forehead and wish me a good day so shall I do the same to you for our days shall be a blessed day because you are right beside me. Love is a noble act of self-giving, offering trust, faith, and loyalty. The more you love, the more you lose a part of yourself, yet you don't become less of who you are; you end up being complete with your loved ones. smiling. You are my wings, I truly want to fly with you to a place where the flowers are green plants, so we can play round the beautiful garden of love kissing and holding each other, what's meant to be will always find a way. People need love the most when they deserve it the least, always remember that through the turmoil love may bring, the heart sees what the eyes cannot my love, some say love is life, but love without hope and faith is an agonizing death. A gift may not be able to represent how deep a person is in love with you, but one thing is certain, a person who never gives will never be able to take honey keep your head up and your mind open because I shall always be with you in your mind.

Richard Williams/LA, California
by: Anonymous

He saw my picture on FACEBOOK and contacted me. He is supposedly a 51 year old, an engineer for Shell Oil Company who recently has been on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Richard told me he'd lost his wife 10-12 years ago when she went into the hospital to have surgery to enable her to have another child. He has a daughter named Joan who just turned 13 or 14.

He started asking me to send him phone cards because he'd not brought any with him on this trip. I have $460.000 worth of cards which isn't that much of a loss since he ask me to send $600.00 to his daughter at a boarding school. I refused.

He began saying I didn't love him, I told him I did, but it was beginning to be a money battle. Richard told me when he left the rig last month he was coming to get me and take me to LA, California with him to live. Asking me for money started again---he needed money $5,000.00 to get all his personal things from a Barrister named George.

Found out that was a hoax. Watch out ladies? Don't be scammed. Always needing money and asking me to pay for things, I REFUSED. GOOD LOOKING DUDE, but, no scruples!!!

The sarcasm went right over his head. He spent the rest of the night trying to butter me up and I was just wasting his time.

So much of it was not adding up that he was a normal person. Said his wife had died of cancer. He ended up leaving me alone when I made it clear that he didn't have a shot. Also, who spells their name as Lyod? What kind of name even is that? C'mon. I searched for his name and "drilling engineer" and this wonderful page popped up. Unreal.

Lawrence Abraham ExxonMobil / Chevron Oil Engineer

As Kevin B noted they come back. The man used in the image is the same as Kelvin Brown. He had a fake Facebook profile. He's using his "official" ExxonMobil Gmail account when his Facebook profile says he works for Chevron.

Prince Richard Contract Manager

Another one having a second attempt at my alias. Again I play along. They fail to build their alias to match mine.

It's "his" kids birthday and he tells me to buy a gift card. I agree. When it is time to give it to him I let fly and tell him what a criminal he is and rip his story to pieces, link below;

https://www.watchforscams.com/prince-richard-contract-manager.html

Thomas Glen Wilson Anadarko Petroleum Engineering Contractor

I met this one on WWF2 hoping for a real oil rig scam. Unfortunately I met a clueless kid. He is unable to deviate from his scripted questions.

I refuse to give up on a man with a different name and who he actually works for. It took him 2 hours to figure that out. Full disclosure, some of what I said about Anadarko Petroleum may be incorrect. Link is below;

Sent pictures of a good looking man with 2 girls. Girls names are Wendy and Diane, birthday 11/17/2005. Owns a 4 bedroom Duplex. Will take care of you for the rest of your life. You will not have to work any longer. Never asked for money, but we only chatted for a little over a week. Was head over heals in love with me.

My scammer finally told me the truth. After 9 months of my torture he broke. This is considered a job in Nigeria and Ghana. He travels back and forth training new scammers. He goes by several names. Craig Williams, Morgan Williams, David Morgan.

He uses pictures of Russian artist Alexey Lushnikov. If you look up this guy you will find the same pictures the scammers use. The scammers have over a hundred names attached to this guys pictures. When they are chatting with you they will reference my slept off instead of I fell asleep. You can trip them up and catch them.

DO NOT GIVE THEM INFORMATION, GIFT CARDS OR MONEY.

They will give a sob story. They will ask you to wire money. Block them, cut them off, give them nothing.

This Ron Mason claiming to be a 58 year old man with a 9 year old son sounds familiar to me. A similar guy claimed the same thing two years ago on Twitter, only he introduced himself as Raymond Chadwick, 59 years old, going on 60, also with a 9 year old son.

He also claimed to have lost his wife to an illness and was looking for someone to be a mom to HIS 9 year old son.

Could that be him? He might be going by that name.

Omg what a scam I’ve just had
by: Anonymous

So I met this guy Alvin Pierre Burk on Plenty of Fish and he tells me he is an independent contractor so I decided to do a name search but nothing comes up for this guy except when I did an extensive search and having to pay for it I did find a couple of Alvin Burks. No-one matching Alvin P Burk but I found an Alvin Peter Burk, Who had passed away here in Duluth Minnesota and that’s the state I’m in.

After talking to this guy you know he professes his love for me and he cares about me and he wants a good woman with an angelic heart and on and on and on and on, he lured me in and was able to get $250 worth of American Express and iTunes cards.

After talking to several people who told me how dumb I had been I called him out. There are many other details that I don’t wish to disclose that on here but has anybody talked to an Alvin Pierre BURK

I've noticed their behavior online, too, Kevin. I asked one what his son's name was and he couldn't answer that. Also, notice that they borrow headlines from newspapers and use those to tug at women's heartstrings and guilt them into sending them money.

For example, as you said, they say, "My wife died of cancer", or "My wife/ex-wife died in a car accident." They also seem to always throw a child and nanny into the mix.

American Oil Rig Engineer named Thomas
by: Anonymous

I met a guy on Instagram this month named Thomas Benedkt. He asked me to join Google Hangouts. He then got rid of his Instagram account. He said he was an oil rig engineer. His wife had died from cancer and he was raising a 9 year old daughter named Sarah with the help of a nanny. He was born in Dortmund Germany. He now lives in Groton, Connecticut.

He is currently working on a $50 million deal in Istanbul Turkey. I had no interest in him romantically but felt sorry for him and thought I would be a pen pal. I was suspicious of things he said that didn't add up.

Then, I came across this site and all I can say is thank you! And TRUST YOUR GUT.

Please scroll down, read, and notice.
by: Kevin B

If you notice a pattern here ladies and gentlemen this is a particularly a good time to notice how the scammers work with their name. Keep in mind their name will never match the picture or even be the person that they say they are.

One of the main things I try to tell people is that when the scammers get their first name and last name they are both common first names. They do this because you won’t find people in the general public that have two first names for their first and their last. Therefore you don’t find any positive information on them or you will find no negative information.

I am bringing this up again because the last 10 posts seem to have first name and last names. David Mason or Mason David. Mark Donald or Donald Mark. If you really look this is one of the biggest clues right off the bat that they’re scammers.

Of course, they will have a family tragedy to gain sympathy. They have a child who is living with a nanny or relatives. Their wives died in an accident or of cancer. Their kid needs an operation. They have to pay for their own oil equipment broken but no they don’t!

You give them money and that way you are investing in your future together, really? They’re half right you are investing in the scammers future. They will sweet talk to you and say they thank the Lord so much that you got introduced into their life. But most people that have a relationship with God do not steal from the Innocent.

When you tell them NO they will get angry and say you don’t trust them. I suggest you say I agree and block him immediately. Why would somebody who needs money angrily yell at someone they never met but insists he is just falling in love with. They never did love you now, and never will.

Most millionaires can get a loan anywhere in the world, for at least whatever tax money they say they have to pay before they get their big check available to cash at the bank.

They are LIARS, especially the ones who thank God you are now in their life.

I am on a local dating site in Southern California, USA. I’m often suspected of being a scammer, because I do love women and I’d love to sweet talk to them and get close to a woman. That is why if I am interested and we strike up a conversation, I tell them.

Scammers who you will never meet will tell you what flight they are arriving on and will never be on board. If you still have money and been good to them financially, they will say they missed the flight & need more money to re-book the next flight.

When I do feel a connection, I meet that lady, in person in a public place to prove I am real and match my pics. Also I do not have any overseas accent.

If you do not meet quickly, on YOUR TERMS, they do not deserve you.

How do I know that? My ex girlfriend went through it.

Thank you for reading. I never want anyone to be exposed to emotional and financial heartache.

Barry nelson , Oil rig scammer? Please help
by: Biggles777

Hello

You searched and could not find him. That says it all, he does not want to be found.

Read the posts about Steam cards a little down and that is what the money you are sending "him" is being used for.

You're just sending a smooth talking Nigerian cash.

No oil company is ever going to ask an employee to pay for equipment or supplies. Ever, they cover all costs.

Pay socialcatfish $30 and they'll find the man in the pictures you've been sent and it won't be a Barry Nelson.

Can't find the number? I don't know the country code it's from but a disposable US number can be created in minutes.

If he lives in Texas, he'll know about it. Start asking questions, he won't know.

He has asked for steam gift cards also and have bought them for him. He states his equipment is needing repair and can exchange the gift cards for money. He says he will pay me back with interest and to think of the transaction as an investment.

This is part of their scam that they use your number to open up new accounts or emails on new sites to continue scamming the innocent. I fell for it once but not a second time as he tried. You will get sob stories. All they are after is your account Info.

And they do anything to get it. Report these people. My advice is to boycott all social

Steam Cards
by: Biggles777

Hello

In Nigeria a Steam card is as good as cash. They want them as they're denominated in USD and convert to more local currency.

What is illegal with gift cards such as Steam in the West is not in Nigeria or Ghana.

They can be used to purchase goods and services at stores.

They can just be sold for cash

A scammer might have a Steam account and when given the code it becomes a USD credit in his wallet.

In short, in Africa, a Steam card is as good as the US Dollar.

Good on you for not giving the code to him. Please make sure you don't either.

As I understand the code was sent to your number and he asked for it. He is trying to tamper with your account. As you did not request the code notify your telecom provider and Google as soon as you can.

He's gone quiet yet may come back and say he is just trying to verify you're a real person.

If he gets the code your number and Gmail are at risk. Scroll down this thread and you'll see I mention Hangouts and the some of the malicious acts they get up too.

Yes, he wants to rob you blind.

As for seeing the photos go to the Nigerian scam page on this site, I've added even more today.

Patrick Giovanni WWF2 Scam? by: Anonymous
by: Anonymous

He sounds somewhat like my God fearing scammer Raymond Casey. They differ by a few points. Ray's daughter, Pearl was staying with his father (who died a few weeks ago), his daughter's age is about the same. She & Ray's birthdays are the same August 5th. Pregnant wife was killed in an auto accident about 5 years ago.
He is suppose to be working an independent contract with Shell Oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Daughter is now staying with her grandfather's doctor & his family.

By the way, the doctor suddenly died in a plane crash & the wife mistreats his daughter and he needs to get home along with his crew to get his doctor. The funny thing is, he doesn't know the doctor's full name or anything about him. I did google plane crashes going to Ukraine there was a crash but no one was killed.

These guys don't give you a lot of details about themselves because it's hard to keep up with all the lies they have told different women. He wanted me to tell him everything about me. He even asked me what me income was.

He wears glasses and I zoomed in on one of his photos he sent me and I could see a crowd of people in an office setting. I didn't ask him about it because I was tired of his lies and he would pretend to be so heartbroken when I questioned him. He would send a lot of crying emojis and plead with me trust him.

This is their job, scamming women out of their money.
