Nearly two months this guy has been contacting me. I was on and over fifties dating site. Australian moved to UK earlier this year. Planned a date but i cancelled it. He tells me a few weeks in he is heading back to Sydney to sell up his home but also wins a contract as a civil engineer. Sorts stuff out down there then him and his staff are on a ship building a new rig in the gulf of Nigeria.
Few weeks in the boat went from a boat to an oil rig ?? I questioned that to myself ? I also asked a few questions around aussie sayings and such like - he had no clue want i was saying.
Only seen each other very briefly by skype a couple of times. He then said one evening he heard gunshots approx 10 hours later i hear back From him with supposedly two stabs to the shoulder and a fractured shoulder lying in a bed in the medical part of the rig! Pirates apparently
Felt shocked and sadden. All the time he is declaring his undying love for me! My gut instinct was to tread carefully i never disclosed my feelings for him. I pasified him though !
He was then worried about having the money in board being stollen could i like after it for him. If he gets a UN diplomat involved. I did send money to the diplomat to get to him and take the money. Something wasnt right everytine saud i couldnt help anymore he would fake another illness black out or faint with high blood pressure. Even now this so called diplomat is asking for £30k ro get the money transported back to england for me to safe guard it! What a fool i have been
When i did speak to
Him but his accent was very mixed not aussie i said you sound south african ! I am 100 percent convinced this is a
Long term scam.
In have t been pulled into the heart strings but i have parted with £4500 . But i wont be fooled ever again. Please ladies do be aware of him. Liar and scammer

Anthony Raphael
by: Anonymous

If you get a message from Anthony Raphael run! He is a petro chemical engineer and he is supposed to be from France, living in the states for the past seven years in Colorado Springs, widowed, wife’s name was Esther, daughter Isabella who will be 15 going on 16 in June.

His phone number is 719-602-7506 and his email is anthonycheer@outlook.com.

He claims he was on an oil rig setting up the drilling site. We talked for three weeks, things seemed to be going okay. Then I got a text message from his Geologist (message from a Mr. Simon 720-464-9629), who said there was an accident on the rig and Anthony is in a coma and three people were killed.

Now he needs money to get him back to the states so he can get medical attention. When I asked what hospital he was in, he said there was help on the rig. Obviously I knew something was up, I am not sending them any money but people need to be aware of such scum bags.

Norwegian scammer
by: Anonymous

I know exactly what and who you are talking about. Yes, very, very clever and adjusted time zones, realistic looking documents, an answer for everything. Unfortunately, stupid enough to use the same name, email address and phone number.

If he is too good to be true, he is just that. A fake and a phony; don’t waste your time-just move on to a real man.

WELL TRAINED SCAMMERS. ERISEN MASON
by: Anonymous

These scammers are prompted by psychologists who tell them exactly what to say and how to say it to win the hearts of unsuspecting women. They are soft-spoken some with beautiful accents and they know all the right words to say to grip your heart and make you feel they are truly in love with you!!! That you were sent by God and you were meant to be together!

When you deny them you go from being the most loving giving beautiful woman that they’ve waited a lifetime to meet to being the most evil bitch God ever put on earth – – – I’m having a blast with the scammers and can spot them so fast and play the game and then slam them with all the red flags! That’s when I get all the WTF, what do you think I am, you are an evil woman, you should pray to God you need to help —- it’s amazing how bad we are after we tell them NO after the amazing music and beautiful love letters and daily text messages and even phone calls an hour twice a day!

Then they send photocopies of passports with their picture, bank statements with their name and even phone bills with their number.

But go to been verified.com and you find the name, email, and even the phone number are not real and cannot be verified! And if you look at the messages sent daily they are cut and pasted from a source and then they add a comment such as "have you had dinner dear" so you know it’s two different messages from two different sources!!!

One I was talking to was in Florida when I met him and went to Norway to complete a contract and even adjusted his text messages and phone calls according to the new time in the new place and even when I tried to catch him with what time is it there he’d have the correct time with a six hour difference! They are sharp at what they do. I finally told my scammer who sounded beautiful with a Scandinavian accent you are probably some short fat boy who couldn’t get a good woman no matter how you tried! I told him I wanted the name of the handsome man whose pictures he was using in his profile on POF.com!

Ladies be so careful as it took me five weeks for my scammer to ask for money so up until that point I was quite sure he was real and even sent photos periodically of the same person with the same dog Max!

To aggravate matters worse I continue to send him beautiful music, photos of him in a fake helicopter with his face photo shopped to an original photo, then more beautiful music at the same time every day for two weeks and he finally called me and asked me what I was doing! I said I truly loved you I am a real woman and for the aggravation you put me through for six weeks I will do the same for you now!

Two can play the same game but I will never know where he was from or who he truly was!

Oil Rig Engineer Scam from Match.com
by: South Florida

South Florida Oil Rig Engineer Met on Match.com

Met thru match.com using the name of Alfred Hansen from Norway, been here in the states for about 10 years. Told me everything I wanted to hear, So kind, So Loving. I thought we were moving too fast and he would reply we were destined. He told me he prayed for 2 years for God to send him a Godly Woman and he was convinced it was me. My match.com profile stated I go to Church. He told me he was a Christian man and when I asked him what church he goes to he gave me a catholic church that was far away from where he said he lived. But I thought, what do I know maybe he travels that far for church.

Then a few days later he had to fly to San Francisco to prepare for an Oil Rig Engineer Contract he was presenting. On day 4 he told me he won the bid and was flying directly to Alaska. I thought odd; you traveled to California with all your gear, luggage, and enough warm clothing not knowing you would win the bid? He told me he is always prepared, I thought Ok… That truly should have been the moment I realized something didn't smell right, but he was so loving!!! Everything I wanted to hear.

When he arrived, Cell service was limited to Text Only and Internet Service down. Thought odd, but hey what do I know. Many more very Sweet loving conversations continued for weeks and then he needed to order supplies. He said he had two phones and lost one the first day he was there. So the only phone he had he could not send me pictures. I wanted to see what it looked like on the oil rig. I thought well that is disappointing, but whatever.

He then tells me he needs my help to place an order via email with a Steel Company in China, Hiengi Steel, https://hijsteel.com. I said no problem, happy to help. I placed an order for +1M in materials. Few days later Steel company emails me back the quote and instructions for payment. I didn't feel comfortable and thought you must know someone else to do this and he replied He "Trusted Me". I thought to myself , if he trusts to give me his personal bank information that this Love must be real.

I thought it was odd that his personal bank account was funding this, wouldn’t the corporation provide the monies for materials? But often my questions were not answered as he would message me a few hours later, stating he lost service again. RED FLAG...???

He tells me to use the internet browser of Microsoft Edge only that it is most secure and I said Ok, I use Microsoft Chrome but hey what did I know? So he gives me the Bank information out of United Kingdom of a Suis Capital Bank http://suiscapital.com, located in Liverpool United Kingdom. He gives me log in information, pin numbers, password, tax id#, mother maiden name. The Bank Website looks very legit as did the security steps necessary in order to transfer monies.

Now it is time to pay for shipping $160k. He only has $50k. He tells me he needs to borrow monies and needs my help. Within the next few days he did receive $145k that was deposited into his account from his brother, friends and his relationship officer, so now he is short $15k.

He starts pressing me for $15k for what I thought was odd because he was aware of my financial situation and how horrible my ex-husband was. He then presses me to take a loan against my car, tells me to sell my jewelry. I said why do you think I have jewelry? He responded all women have jewelry and I told him my ex-husband took all my jewelry. From time to time he would ask me if I was home and I thought to myself, that is odd, why he is asking me if I am home. He is 5k miles away?

He told me about his dog King, a chihuahua he sent me a picture. I thought the dog looked pretty big for a Chihauhau but what did I know? He told me the neighbor’s son loves King so he always stays with them when he is away. So I have this nice thought I am going to go visit King and take a picture of him with me. Here comes that Glaring "RED FLAGS" again! He tells me the neighbors are out of town and took King with them. I said that doesn’t make any sense, you board an animal they don’t go on vacation, but here comes the charm and even though I knew it didn’t add up I thought to myself who am I to Judge and not believe this man?

He kept pressing me and then he told me he was worried he would run out of minutes on his cell service and didn't want to lose connection with me. I am thinking well this doesn't make a lot of sense, how could you not be better prepared that in 1 month time you would have no more minutes. You told me you are always prepared. I told him well what do you want me to do with the Steel Company if they email me back about the $15k? He did not like that at all stating he couldn't believe I didn't want to talk to him. I replied it is more important for him to take care of business than to talk to me.

Then he tells me if I go get an Itunes Card that he can use that for cellular minutes. I don’t know anything about ITunes Cards other than my kids use them. I respond back, well if you don’t have internet how can you use the iTunes card? He never answered me lost cell connection. I told him I have no money at best I could do $20 and I don’t know where to purchase. He tells me Walmart. I never bothered and told him a few days later I used the $20 for Gas in my car. He then tells me he needs $300 on an Itune Gift Card and I told him none of that was possible.

We continued to text back and forth with some loving messages and other messages that I should borrow monies from everyone I know so he can come home to me. I told him I asked everyone I know, but I was lying so I deflected back to him what is your plan?

He then told me to look online for loans. I remembered his condo in Hallandale, I told him I could get a hard money lender quickly, but then the story changed, that I misunderstood that it was his friend’s condo he was living at. That did not sit well with me, for we specifically talked about the realtor who helped him with the condo

He pressed me to get this hard money loan taken out on my home and I said not possible, is held jointly with my ex-husband. He goes back to get a loan on my car and thought odd, why doesn't he mention his own car? His match.com profile stated he did well financially but yet he does not have a bank account here in Florida? In all honesty, this just goes to show you how VULNERABLE I was because the RED FLAGS WERE WAVING

I thought to myself why does he not believe me. I thought I will just tell him that I everything I have is held jointly with my ex-husband and there is nothing I can do. That took the pressure off for a little while then he bought it back up again. He even said, you are a Realtor you know how to do this! I said "Not Possible" you are referring to Fraud and is a crime. He backed down and we resumed sweet messages all the while stating he didn't know what he was going to do

I was just glad he stopped asking me for money. Then I don’t hear from him for like 5 days and he messages me sweetly, "Hey Baby" and I am so excited to hear from him and he attacks me, stating that I have failed him

Then my girlfriend a day or two later sends me the link to "Oil Rig Engineer for Dating Scam" & I thought to myself, No F***cking Way! I am an intelligent woman. No F***cking Way!! But I know I must read this, My girlfriend spelled it all out plain as day, an ENTIRE FIELD OF RED FLAGS!

The moment I read the comments on "Itune" Gift Card my heart sank. While I did attempt researching this man I loved, I never did find anything and as a Realtor we know how to track down buyers and sellers. Now I am reading all the comments and I know exactly what I have to do. Something I should have done before but I was too happy planning my future with this man. The two things I can trace is the existence of the Steel Company in China and the Bank in the United Kingdom. I call Godaddy.com and ask who holds the domain for the Steel Company, https://hijsteel.com

They tell me it is held with another Registrar by the name of: https://www.namecheap.com. I said OMG what did you say, Name Cheap.com ? The Go Daddy Rep said this was a legit Registry Company but let’s be serious… This Big Steel Manufacturing Company used a Registrar "Name Cheap .com"? I knew at the moment I was a victim

I contacted Name Cheap.com who has no phone # to reach customer service, Bad, Bad Sign…. They only have "Website Chat". I ask who is the owner of the steel company website and how long has that been in existence. They give limited information and that is when I asked the next question. Are you Registration Company for the bank domain name: https://suiscapital.com , the answer was YES, OMG!

I think my legs literally gave out and I hit the ground hard. I have been taken advantage of by this man who I believed loved me and wanted to share a life with me was nothing more than a "Predator". I am freaking out. I copy the bank address from the website into google search and up comes "aa419 Fake Site View". I type the website into my Chrome Browser that was opened, Suiscapital.com and my entire Screen turns RED with DECEPTIVE SITE AHEAD, ATTACKERS ON SUISCAPITAL.COM MAY TRICK YOU INTO DOING ....

Now I know why this man insisted I used Microsoft Edge for my internet browser

Here I sit so heartbroken, I am exactly those same pathetic people I have no sympathy for. I have no one to blame but myself. There were so many RED FLAGS, I just did not want to believe anything would ruin my "Fairy Tale Man of My Dreams". I am grateful to my Girlfriend! I am grateful for the existence of this site Watch For Scams, Oil Rig Engineer for Dating Scams

I notified Match.com. I am lucky that I never sent money or anything else. Things could have been a whole lot worse, all I wanted was to fall in love and be loved. I hope sharing what happen to me will help others

Shame Sherri leona
by: Anonymous

It's a shame you're trying to disguise me to be someone else, to run away from the Truth, I'm so ashamed of the human you are, keep on doing what you do, judgement awaits you and someday you will reap what you sow, someone like you has no love in heart, and i believe you must be a lonely soul, because of your evil altitude.

I'm not here to write back and forth with you rather to let others know about your demise, and what a horrific lady you are, there can't be love in your soul not a single bit, and i only pray you find love and know what it means.

I'm a busy person so you can keep nullifying my statement trying to disguise me, to fit another personality, probably that guy you're up against used you against your evil intention for him. I only pray some guys keep on using you until you learn your lesson not to play with the heart of men, it a shame to see someone like you still existing in the world

This is what you do and your profession to keep on tarnishing good peoples image that didn't fall victim to your evil plans. I'm so lucky to be on this site and expose your work, you can write as much as you want back and forth trying to deviate from the Truth, but I'm not Mason that you keep on mentioning, I'm Josh and always will be.

Please everyone look out for her, you can write a thousand words ahead, as usual people like you spend time in the computer, but I won't go back and forth with you as some will see this and know who you are SHERRI LEONA

Poor Josh and his consign problem
by: Anonymous

Ladies, The good news is the more time Ericksen Mason (aka Josh) spends writing ridiculous posts on here the less time he has to groom a potential victim to get the elusive $12k he needs for his imaginary part on his imaginary equipment on his imaginary oil rig. So keep your emails coming Eriksen Mason (aka Josh).

See my post about Eriksen Mason on December 20 where I post his email address and phone number. Anpther lady’s children, suspicious of the man courting their mother, did some internet research and-amazing-they found a post with the same man courting their mother-matching name, email and phone number - reported on this website as a scammer!! She and I talked yesterday and boy were we finishing each other’s sentences. So, Eriksen Mason (aka Josh) has been posting all of this nonsense in retribution-that’s fine-keep them coming. I know who I am and it is keeping you occupied from your otherwise evil doings

Oh, yes, Josh if I am the love of your life can you at least learn how to spell my name?

From the real victim,
Sheri Lenora

Real person, Sheri L again
by: Anonymous

Don’t know a Josh; never talked to a Josh and have never asked for money from anyone. This is probably Mr Mason again. Notice, the broken English syntax, Ladies, another hallmark of a scammer. I did talk by phone to one of Mr Mason’s other victims from New Hampshire this morning.

Thanks for putting us in contact with each other, Me Mason. It was very interesting comparing notes. He uses the same name, age, location, everything! See my December 20 post for more information on this scammer. Time to get a new ID Mr Ericksen Mason-the jig is up. In American English that means you have been uncovered.

Hello guys lets keep an eye out for this lady.
I'm Josh, and I met her online which is the current means of meeting people, and we have chatted for a couple of weeks. She profess her devotional love to me, with her lovely email, text and voice conversations and she is good in what she does.

I truly fell deeply in love with her, and believe she was true to her intent that along the way she told me she had a financial problem asking for my assistance.

At first I wanted to help her, cause I'm in love with her, but just reluctantly started asking her some questions, which aggravated and changed her altitude towards me. The more I talked to her, I learn what she really was, just a lying lady, breaking the heart of men, and using them for her own interest.

It hurt me so much to know that there is someone saying such sweet words to me but finding out what she truly was and she need to be stopped as most people might have fallen for her.

Look out for her, as she needs to be stopped.

The real Sheri Lenora, victim and not a scammer
by: Anonymous

Yes, I am Sheri Lenora, victim of Eriksen Mason, scam artist referenced by me and the other victims being asked to send $12K for his benefit. I, on the other hand, am a real person who has NEVER asked Mr Mason for a penny (nor anyone else). You have my contact information as he so kindly posted; feel free to contact me for further information. If I can help a fellow victim I will.

Please also google search or Facebook search me and you will find real live pictures and information about me. If you do the same for Ericksen Mason you will find NOTHING, Nada, about him. This is another red flag you are dealing with a scammer.

There is no information about them because they are NOT a real person. Beware, ladies, of this individual.

I have nothing to hide; Mr Mason needs to hide behind his computer screen as do the rest of these predators

I was contacted by "Edgar Monroe" an oil rig engineer. He was in the middle of the sea in Australia and was totally in love with me although he never met me and I'm quite a bit older than he. He uses beautiful but confusing words. It took about 2 weeks before he needs money to pull papers for his next job.

My girlfriends sister is being scammed as I type this, and he says his name is Ronaldo Vincent, an oil rig engineer, kids in boarding school in Europe, wife deceased. The scammer has taken her for over $20,000.00, even after showing her this web site, with so many identical stories, she still believes this person is real and not a scammer.

This is unbelievably frustrating, has anyone been contacted by a person using this name ?

He said he lived in Pennsylvania with 3 kids but you hear them when talking to him on phone. He goes by Bonnie Williams. He asked us separately, and didn't know I knew.

Oil rig talk
by: Anonymous

A bald headed man says he has a crew in Scotland and is on an oil rig. Says he is from Texas and Mexico. Name he gave is Mark Williams. Says he is a millionaire and does not want money. Tested him in several areas, one being asked him to video chat. He couldn’t because his computer on the rig has no camera. Right! I blocked him.

John Lamb
by: Anonymous

No. They use many different identities. More info would be helpful. Chris Anderson was the name used by someone who contacted me on Words with Friends. Went to Messenger and Hangouts. Beware of him. Says he his German. Nigerian Scammer is what he really is.

Dating scams
by: Anonymous

Pay attention to a bald headed guy on the Plenty of Fish site. He says he lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana and sends e-mails that come straight from his imagination or poetry books he has.

After 3 e-mails he tells me he needs $8.000.00 so he can get his cargo from China in to the States and will pay me back once he sells the cargo. He sent some beautiful pictures of this "cargo". He went so far as to call my house and he sounded like a China man.

He is so stupid if he would have read any of my responses he would see there is NO SIGN of my believing anything he has said. I even went so far as to ask him the name of the book he was typing me messages from.

I blocked him from reaching me. But I will add this.......I understand how it feels to be lonely but I do not understand "paying" to have someone type you something romantic from a book you can read for free from the library. As for me, I am not desperate,

Be careful as I first got his e-mails from the PLENTY OF FISH and notified them and now I see he is on FARMERS ONLY site.

God help us all
by: Anonymous

I ask the Lord to help us all to heal our minds, hearts, and souls. We have all had so much heartbreak. These evil people steal our lives away from us, some for years. They have not only taken our money but our existence in a normal life.

We have become obsessive, waiting for a phone call or email. Blocking every means of communication is the best thing to do. We have to take our lives one day at a time, trying to recover from these deep wounds. These people have no conscience, they feel nothing. They don't care if you lose everything, even your life.

So let's take our lives back! One day at a time. May God bless every one of us, and help us to heal.

Jaden Hardley / "agent" Lawrence Okpako
by: Anonymous

I met a man through Instagram - so not technically a "dating" website... Jaden Hardley aka JayB_cool or @richardhardley889 is the username on Instagram

He said he is in the North Sea working on an Oil Rig - I have talked to him on the phone, and been emailing / texting him for months - he has asked for money several times...always through WU or MoneyGram - now is is asking for money direct to a bank account of his "Agent" named Lawrence Okpako.....just a simple google search of this guy's name brought me here.

Be Warned...just a scammer, who is pretty good at getting you to feel like it could maybe real.

John Santos Williams or Lawrence Okpako
by: MaggieAnonymous

Does the name John Santos Williams or Lawrence Okpako mean anything to anyone else? "John Williams " is asking for money to be deposited to an account of "Lawrence Okpako". I'm not going to do anything at all!!! Just wanted to ask if anyone else has heard of them.

Thank you

MeetUp Loner Looking for his Love
by: Anonymous

Felix, the oil engineer, hardworking German national who lost his mother and his wife. He is lonely, no kids, got pots and pots of money from working hard and he wants you to be his bosom friend, lover, the lady of his multiple homes.

He picks up on what you will reply and his replies are not those of a kid, though you can tell that something is not quite congruent, because it seems that he is getting some of his material from the internet. That is how I suppose his replies remain above his age.

The guy is most likely a kid, ladies. If you try Spokeo his social media picture comes out as that of a teen boy.

The first flag is that all of a sudden in the first e-mail, this guy is divulging so much personal information that either he is a nut or a very authentic person. Well, he is a kid in this case, option three. Ladies, I got hooked by the third e-mail and wrote this cradle Don Juan an e-mail that is self revealing. Why? Because we women follow the concept of reciprocity.

I met authenticity with authenticity. However, someone somewhere must have figured this young fish scammer out and kicked him off of meetup. I was prompted only when my e-mail could not reach his. I stepped back and looked him up online and found this site.

Yes, felix.s@engineer.com is a kid and a scammer.

Please do not fall for his goofing with your time and emotions. Also, keep in mind, in order to attract a quality man, you have to test him from the beginning for his willingness to do things for you. Word games are cheap.

Even a teen boy can do it :)

Oil Rig Engineer scammer Hendricks Alden
by: Anonymous

Yet another oil rig scammer. His name was Hendricks Alden. He sent me some pictures. I found those pictures on Linked In, with the name Hendricks Alden. He was Swedish, so he said. He sounded Swedish on the phone.

I thought I was meeting someone local. I never really knew for sure. He said he lived at Raintree Lake just south of Lee's Summit, MO. I think he made up the address because his business was located in Maryland, RI.

He asked for money to have a crew sent to the gulf of Mexico. He couldn't access his bank account. And he forgot to buy all those ITunes cards he needed to be an engineer. Dumb ass. And he all but threatened my life.

Got very violent with me.

Blocked him.

Oil Rig Engineer scammer Morgan Luciano Reinman
by: Anonymous

This guy called himself Morgan Luciano Reinman. on OK Cupid site. Turns out he is stealing pictures from a member of Parliament from Malta. I don't think it would be appropriate to give that guys name.

He was supposedly on a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to buy oil rig casings. He got stranded there, he forgot to pay taxes on his order and wanted $16,000 to pay tax. I spoke with a reporter from a newspaper in Malta.

The imposter's name was Mark Abelo. It was easy for him to get the guys pictures because they were all over the internet with his family and work.

Beware ladies, he's a real sweet talker.
