Now using quiz games
by: Anonymous

'Pedro' came up as a random quiz competitor on Quiz Up. Immediately he sent me a message 'Hello Friend'. Claimed to be an oil rig operative off the coast of Alabama. Although he hasn't been on this quiz site for very long, he has over 1,000 followers - all female.

Straight away he asked for my WhatsApp details and claimed he doesn't do any other kind of internet/social media. Really?

Anyway, I reverse searched his picture and he shows up on several scam websites.

You were valid in your decision. He is a Narcissist walking Ego. I would invite you to go to the FBI site to report scammers and give them his Phone #-( Aside from him getting another Burner,phone-he might intend to continue to use it)

I am Curious-where did he say that he was at this moment in time, when the World is experiencing a Pandemic. I have my thoughts on this. An Island.
Beautiful outside must be replicated inside -or it is nothing.

He Lies and how he keeps them all straight is impossible.

Good Luck to you.

He contacted me. I knew he was Fake
by: Anonymous

I think it's funny he thinks he can get away with this. He contacted me today. I told him he was fake. He has gone overboard in trying to get me to believe him.

I ended up blocking him but almost want to unblock him to catch him in this. I'm not going to. But oh how I want to. I'm sorry you all had to deal with this. I think he was surprised I'm not one to fall for him. He definitely is a beautiful man.

But the way he was going on, I knew within an hour he wasn't who he said he was. He even sent me a love song... What????

Im truly sorry he hurt you

I am sorry that you also had this experience with this man who is a Scammer. Since finding 30+ names for this man it has gone up to be more than at least 70 names.

His true name is NOT the name he gave you. I am glad you reported him to the FBI ( hope you gave the FBI - the Account #... Please note, that if you made access to this account it might not be his but someone else he learned the # of the account & had you make access to it). Make a Report with your Local Police.

I would say that KARMA -will in fact come closing in on him soon. Stay strong, find a counselor to speak to like I have. It is helpful. To Love or be helpful is not a crime. what he is doing is.

Scammer
by: Anonymous

Spoke to him on POF under EstesF51 for 2 weeks then started talking and texting off the platform. He said his name was Estes Fernandez from Los Angeles. Also another profile under Ted51. He sent me several pictures including a passport.

He scammed me and I fell for it. He said he was leaving for Turkey on a business trip right before our date to meet then said he was stuck and didn't have money to pay for customs and taxes on gemstones purchase. I did sent him money but now I reported him everywhere including the IC3.gov and FTC.

I had a bank account number where he told me to send the money to someone in Texas. I hope he gets caught. I also found him on Facebook under same name Estes Fernandez,I wonder if that's his real name.

He is on Dating sites from Russia, Netherlands and all over. He needs to be Reported and if you have a phone number -Report him. You state that he had a Facebook Page with his "real name" so what was that?

I have used Yandex Search Engine (a Russian Site) and found more than 60 names for him. I hope you reported him to Facebook - and if you remember the name he used -you should post it.

It is stunning to me that there are not more Reports about him. I recently reported him on LinkedIn and he was taken off and the next day he was back, first with a photo and then he took it off. I still Reported him. He needs to be off ALL Dating sites.

Forever !

SCAMMER

I met him on Plenty of Fish and he used the last name Lucas. He created an elaborate scam which included other parties that posed at physicians. I figured it out and reported him but saw him up again under a new name shortly after.

He has a Facebook under his real name that was taken down. I told him to get a real job.

To the person who spoke with"David"
by: Anonymous

His accent is Arabic not African, although thick.
I hope you Reported him to the Dating site.
He truly needs a dose of Truth.

He said his name was David
by: Anonymous

He was on Match.com with screen name "ReadytoLove" and "Rockefeller". He says he’s self-employed as a consultant and all BS of course. The first time I spoke with him on the phone his accent sounded African.

Who knows!!! He’s a fake!

Response to "Organized Criminals Don't Love/Only Money
by: Anonymous

Some of what you state is correct and some I believe that it is Much bigger than just some Scammers in Nigeria which is what the Authorities want people to believe. Scammers come in all sizes from all countries and the are criminals.
Moving forward after this occurs does not mean forgetting at all; it means that if something presents itself then it is important to make others aware.

Having Empathy, Compassion and Kindness is important.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Must add an addendum.....
by: Anonymous

Since I posted this ,I have found more than 58 names for this Scammer - Confidence Man. He Lives to Deceive. He is on just about every Dating site. The age that he states is NEVER His True age. Nothing out of his mind as a thought is the Truth.

He IS clearly a Narcissist. Nefarious and without any Integrity of Morals. Because of his Arabic accent which is very thick, I doubt he is in the USA.

The best Image search engine is Yandex.

ORGANIZED CRIMINALS / DONT LOVE/ ONLY MONEY
by: Anonymous

They are Out for nothing more than WHAT YOU WILL
HAND OVER TO THEM. Take all you have and More. Your self-worth, heart, confidence and Faith in mankind. Dont trust strangers Online they are fake accounts very good hidden secretly (actors/thieves). But, Instead of contacting the real person in the pic its your time wasted they can do nothing about it.

Dedicate your time into turning these criminals into proper authorities all over world. Let's make year 2020a Victory Year. Put your time into seeing a better society for the next generation who will fall into this trap. Report and Report and believe they will be exposed and put away in a new home, hard bed, cement floor and under a
watchful eye twenty four seven. Relax on the two inch mattress and only dream of money in their pockets. The Mansion they scammed so hard to earn.

BEWARE ALL.

Since my posting this -I have found more than 36 names that this man has used on MANY Dating sites. Sometimes different names on the same dating site. He is Nefarious and must be Off ALL Dating sites.

There should be an organization that all the Dating sites belong to because Scammers would normally travel to all of these sites.

I DO believe in KARMA.

"Michael Stevens" on Match...
by: Anonymous

I would hope that you have contacted Match to let them know that this person IS a Scammer and that they have an Obligation to Contact the other Dating Sites as well warning them of exactly what he is.

Match only allows a First name and there isn't an option to search for this specific name.

Scammers are Everywhere
by: Anonymous

He is also on Match as Michael Stevens. Be very very careful if you are on any of the dating sites. They have infiltrated all of them. Do your due diligence and give no information. Tell them you want to meet first before you give any information out.

I guarantee you will never hear from them again.


BE safe ladies.
