Oil rig scammer-Wei Logan

by Akiko
(Japan)

Connected with this guy named Wei Logan though Tinder. He said he was in the UK and would have a contract in Turkey for the next few weeks. He sent me lovely messages everyday and some music from YouTube in the morning.

It took him a month to ask me to send him money.
He said he had an accident on the rig. He fell into the sea and lost his ID and credit cards. He told me to send him money because he needed to provide food and water for his workers.

His demand was $3,000 dollars. Of course I didn't send him but asked him to talk on the phone. His English was not enough to tell he is a native speaker, though he told me he was from Orland FL.

Blocked him soon after the call. Be careful with this guy. He is a scammer.

He asked you for money? And you didn't send it. How is he then a scammer? What's the proof he is a scammer. You don't post people's pictures up with such allegations.

Holy Hell

Thanks for posting. I have been in contact with this "guy" through Tinder as well. He lost me with his lack of "personality" and for me the conversations died before getting to the falling-into-an-oil-rig-and-requiring-3000-dollars spiel.

There's something else posted here that is a huge red flag for me - it makes me wonder if this is just the "guy" I was supposedly talking to pretending to be another person reporting a fake scam, which, if true, is seriously bad.

God, everything makes so much sense now.

TinEye

I used TinEye to search if the passports were of Armani Chang Wei and got 35 results of different passport images. Many of the passports are held up with identical hand (hang nail in middle finger). On closer examination the passport number 431276122 appeared more than once.

RE: Reverse image search
by: Akiko

Thank you for the information. Did you mean you found this guy on TinEye? I have tried it but no results for these pictures.

I know I should put this awful experience behind me and move on, but if I can let him know, that's the only thing I'd like to do for this matter.

Reverse image search
by: Anonymous

I have tried TinEye and got many results with the passport image. Zero results for other pictures.

Not much luck with Google Image Search and Yandex.

Haven’t tried SocialCatfish.

Credibility of his pictures
by: Akiko

The scammer sent me similar messages like you got however, I doubt the pictures of him are not real. He refused face time chat, so these pictures of him are stolen from somewhere by the scammer. This guy might be a victim as well.
I'm wondering if there are some ways to find this guy on the picture and let him know he is used by the scammer.

Does anyone know how to search the guy from pictures ( I tried google image search but couldn't find him ) or can anyone find this guy?

Stop being scammed
by: Anonymous

You have the good sense to recognize a scammer and avoid heartaches and financial losses.

More people should learn about these oil rig romance scams. It is a well organized crime operation and big payouts for these scammers.

I didn’t find out until after I was victimized.
