Ladies, please beware of Oliver Benjamin! He has a LinkedIn profile, impersonating an oil rig engineer working for Payet Engineering. He claims he is offshore in Germany. He’s an orphan from the UK and has a 9 year old daughter at a boarding school there.

He is using pictures of a real person, Steve G. Jones, a hypnotherapist based in Savannah, GA. Unfortunately, Mr. Jones’ pictures have been used by several scammers.

After 3 weeks of romancing me via Hangouts, I wanted to end the relationship because he wanted me to send him $300 Amazon gift card to update his computer so we can do a video chat. I blocked him on Hangouts.

Unfortunately, he still had my email address and threatened to release nude pictures of me to friends and family. I panicked and ended up sending a gift card to him. However, he continued to demand more money.

I finally came to my senses and determined he is never going to stop harassing me. So I blocked him from my email. I have not heard from him since.

Even though I already blocked him on LinkedIn and reported him, he is still on LinkedIn and continues to connect with women to victimize them. I even contacted LinkedIn's Member Safety and Recovery Team to report Oliver Benjamin as a scammer but they said since the scam is "not occurring within the LinkedIn platform, they have no authority to address the issue."

Yes, Mr. Steve G. Jones is in LinkedIn and I did send him a message but he never responded. I’m sure he’s fully aware that his image has been used on numerous scams which is very unfortunate for him.
