Oil rig romance scammer

by Anonymous

Guy got in touch with me through Facebook, and I stupidly accepted his friendship, and after 3 weeks, many chats, he asked me to change to the hangout site, more private, and started professing his love in one week.

Said he was 58 divorced from PA, but on a contract in the Gulf of Mexico, had one 15 year old son in a boarding school in PA. On the 3rd week he said he wanted to take a short leave because he wanted to come and see me, but his money was tied up in an on-shore bank, so needed $1000 to pay for a helicopter to get him off the rig.

But I had been doing much research on romance scams, so I absolutely told him no, and the relationship ended at that, and he got a little upset, and just quit contacting me. His profile pic is so handsome, white man, goes by the name of Dewitt Brenton, but when he briefly called me 1 time, he sounded Nigerian for sure.

Ladies beware he will tell you he loves you, sends poems, Utube love songs, and heart stickers

He added me off Instagram, moved to hang outs or what’s app and talked for 2 months now. He works for a oil company based in the states, but now in Turkey where apparently he goes often. He has a son and his wife is deceased from child bearing. He only has his sister and his son. and apparently also he has tons of money but get his bank account has been blocked for writing his credit card in wrong. !

I have lots of pictures if it sounds a familiar story. Please need help as he’s now apparently in jail detained from DEA and needs lots of money to get him out. Part of me believes him but the money gives me a red flag!

Contacted me on Facebook, and he said he is an engineer on a rig and after 3 days he declared he wants to marry me. His profile had few photos, but searching on Facebook by the name I found more photos with probably Bangladesh men. He claimed to be half Canadian but wrote badly in English. I refused to have video talks.

He asked me to move to hangouts and after some days his profile was deleted from Facebook. He claimed to have a son in a boarding school in the Philippines, and of course widower and parents dead. We spoke sometimes for about a month but did not go very well because everything was odd from the very beginning with many questions addressed to me and no answers from him.

I asked for a photo from the rig, and he said he is not allowed to take photos. When I started with too many questions and doubts he pretended his son promised to kill himself if he will not get a mother. His son started to write to me under the email address
bakirtzischristian11@gmail.com

and to call me mom and to claim he loved me so much. He even sent me a photo. I was mad and wrote Tobias to tell the boy the truth but the emails did not stop and the "boy" asked for photos of my children which I did not send. He told me he is very sad that his "father" cannot be with me for his birthday which is 8th of May.

I promised to send him a Lego box and wrote his father for a full name and address. His father told me that it is not safe to send presents in the Philippines and in the same day I received an email from the "boy" saying that he is very upset because his father cannot send him money for his birthday cake.

I told him I can send money (stupid me!) and he sent me his nanny account details and asked for almost 1000 euros. From now on I understood that this is a scam and told his "father" that this is too much for the prices in the Philippines but he started to explain that the boy will have many friends etc etc.

Everything changed, the "father" started to write a lot at hours when he should have been at work. The "son" insisted on the requests at very late hours in the night in the Philippines and all this because I told them I cannot make online transfers in the Philippines.

I blocked the "father" on hangouts and stopped answering the "son" by emails. I only lost time although I realized from the very beginning that nothing was ok. I am sure there are at least 2 people that made conversations on Facebook and hangouts because there were different styles and I think they are from Asia and not from Africa. Mostly because some of the many phrases with God were more similar to the Asian style.

I am sorry I did not find this site earlier, I think it should be more visible and authorities more interested in dismantling such groups.

A Californian just got hold of me on POF, and we started chatting. He has got a daughter and works as a petroleum engineer based in Alaska. Been reading this site and the story was so the same as others.

Has anyone recognized this name, and if so, please be in touch. I will carry on talking to him until I'm sure hes a scumbag, so watch this space.
