Back story: widowed 5 years, wife died of cancer, 15 year old daughter in boarding school, Italian, Italian name: Rodriguez(!)Mother gave him name, Michael. Met: Tinder, conversation continued on google hangout.

Sweet talked, that I the woman for him, I look like an Angel, a Queen. Talked a lot to loving god, still very interested when I said I dont believe in god but ethics, which surprised me given how strongly he seemed to feel about wanting a woman who loves god as much as he did.

Very well spoken, only a few grammatical & spelling errors. Didn't seem to understand some basic idioms which I had to explain.

Seemingly loving & devoted. Says will be back in Perth in 2 weeks & will be coming over to the east of Australia to see me.

Will keep you posted. Excuse should be interesting.

Not Michael now his name is Scott
by: Anonymous

So I met him on Facebook Dating and his name is Scott. He owns a company which is the name you all reported. Said he lives in Malibu and has an 18 year old daughter in boarding school. You would think if he was a good scammer he should change his story. Glad I checked online before wasting my time on him.

So disappointed that men like him fake pictures and profiles when all we want is to find love.
Thank you all for sharing

Currently going by Kendrick
by: Anonymous

Hey ladies he's on Facebook now with a whole new profile claiming to own Avery Miles' company Miles Engineering out of Ohio. Oddly he lives in Coleman, TX but is working in the gulf. Anybody who says they're from the small towns in W. Texas & are engineers are full of BS. BTW, great touch picking photos of some guy in a fracking zone wearing a Cavender's Boot store hat!

He's on plenty of fish as John.
by: Nl

He contacted me as I just joined and after about 15 minutes wanted to switch to messenger. He states he resides in San Antonio but currently selling a home in Atlanta. Wants to meet up even if I'm 13 years older.

I said he's too young for me but he knows better and sent me his hot picture walking in the ocean. Says he's a widower and has one daughter who is in boarding school in Savannah, GA. This guy is persistent and slick so watch out

This jerk also uses the name of Jim Cardwell from Nashville, TN. He begged me to purchase his daughter a laptop, but I am smarter than him. He told me his birthday is 6-25-1957. He got a hold of my landline, shows up as MURFREESBORO, TN.

BEWARE this guy is a total crook and starts out with flowery speech, wife died daughter in Spain and currently lives in Brooklyn. Complimentary how I am his queen, his wife, and talks about god.

Brief calls. To show it’s him says he got robbed by pirates and needs repairs done and can I lend him money that he will pay back but just can’t access funds as he needs a fingerprint to access.

Got nasty when I confronted him on this site

Now using the name Henk
by: Anonymous

I received the same Sob story about being a Widow, just wanting my time, Son in another country studying, has no one to help him through his loneliness and depression since his wife died... blah, blah, blah.

He plays on the Christian concept!!!

He is using a new pic now, just of an older distinguished man in a car.

When I stopped responding to him, he laid the pitiful "he so sad" that he didn't hear from me, story on rather Thick.

Everything that everyone else has said about this person, I have received also from him. I even asked if he could face-time or even call to hear his voice, because I was suspicious from day one, and that's when he would "REMIND" me that he is on an Oil Rig.

These scandals... people really think we are stupid enough to fall for it. Especially, in this day and time, when we are constantly hearing about the "Dark web"!

Greetings from New York. I just started talking to this person via Instagram in late December 2018. He came across as somewhat humble in the very beginning. Gave me the same spin on his wife that passed away from lung cancer and having a 15 year old daughter.

I actually felt really bad about his "experience." I am a Christian woman so naturally I immediately had a soft spot for someone who would divulge such personal information to a total stranger in such a short period of time.

Then it got weird. He asked if I lived alone, marital status, do I cook, do I do house chores, do I own my home, etc. I use the term, "weird" only because a conversation usually has a flow to it. The series of conversations, via Instagram, and through subsequently through Google hangouts, was all over the place.

Just today I was talking to my best friend about him and she suggested that I "Google" him while I was on the phone with her. I did and here I am. If it weren't for this site, and the brave souls that shared their stories, I would never have known.

I want to say, "Thank You" for exposing this creep.

Be safe and be blessed!

Oil rig scam michael miles
by: Jenny

Have seen this picture used in many profiles. It's amazing how they think they can get away with photoshopping pictures as if you look closely you can pick them out straight away.

Wait, there's more....

After more online digging, I found this:

https://www.watchforscams.com/micheal-smith-roland-smith-richard-terrylist-goes-on.html

I also found the original image of the oil rig worker that the head has been photoshopped on to. This image was what raised my suspicions in the first place.

Looks like a scam profile to me
by: Rad

Two first names possibly. Works on a rig away from home. Widowed or divorced. Correspondence is flowery. You are correct to be very suspicious on this guy. I suspect that he will start asking for money sometime soon...and you are correct to expect the excuses for not visiting.
