SCAMMER:Dr. Oliver James - Orthopedic Surgeon

by Anonymous

Oliver James said he was working with the United Nations as an orthopedic surgeon in Syria with a 14 year old daughter name Melvin. How stupid Melvin. I should have picked up on his stupidity but I was so naive. I never heard of this kind of scam or scams period.


He was not the sharpest tool in the shed. DUMB as a doorknob but as an educator I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I just told myself, thank God he's not operating on me; he would probably mistake a leg for an arm.

Of course the first thing you want to do is to be angry with yourself, but don't do that You would have learned from an idiot like this. This too was a lesson and would have learned from it. Now to just move on and laugh at this whole unfortunate situation.

Yes, I lost $5500, but when I gave it, it was from my heart and it made me feel good at the time. Boy, I truly believe that ignorance is bliss and was I ever so blissful. I should have left it at that and moved on.

But no, I thought I was in love and that was fun too lol. Now it has all ended. Moving right along, may he burn in hell!!!

Still at it in Yahtzee chat this time
by: Anonymous

I just got a chat request from this guy outta the blue last night, in the Yahtzee game. He is still an orthopedic surgeon for the United Nations but is in Kabul, Afghanistan this time. It’s only been 12 hours including downtime for sleeping since his first message and I went looking for him online. He just seemed weird. I mean, who tries to find out lots of your info by asking questions while at the same time sounding "playful" in a sexy way creepy way if you ask me, yet he tells you don’t forget to say prayers at bedtime. Ugh! Don’t bring God into your scam dude!!

If you see this number block it 407-205-7758

Earl Farmer
by: Anonymous

I have a similar story to report. A man calling himself Earl Farmer sent me a friend request on FaceBook. He claimed to be a "debridement doctor" in the Navy currently stationed by the UN in Iraq. He said English was not his first language and that was why his grammar was poor. He said Italian was his primary language. He also claimed to be a widow with a 13 year old son who was back in the US with the nanny.

I'm a nurse and would often test him by speaking medical lingo asking him professional questions about conditions or medications which, of course, he couldn't answer. His responses would take a long time and when he would respond it sounded like he had copied it right from Wikipedia or WEbMD.

If I questioned it he would immediately get very defensive. He tried to get me to send emails to a lawyer and the UN to say I was his fiance and was requesting that he could come home on leave.

I didn't do it and blocked him.

James Williams

I got the widower surgeon with the U.N. He can't even spell surgeon. I reverse-image searched his picture during our initial conversation so he didn't get far with me. I guess he thought I was lonely and vulnerable because I was up late. I was actually at my second job.

James Williams on words with friends. Says he's a widowed orthopedic surgeon in Aleppo. Knows nothing about medical things except what an ekg is. Says he went to school in New York. Wife died of cancer, daughter in school to be a gynecologist. He's lonely. Wants to meet someone but is afraid and not trusting.

Dr. Oliver Hart General Surgeon
by: Anonymous

Dr.Oliver Hart claims to be a General Surgeon contracting himself out to the UN. He states that he is currently in Lebanon for the next 10 months. He claims to be a widower with a son. He is currently on Twitter by the name Oliver Hart
@OliverH90577491.

He has some broken, but effective, English writing skills. Has WAY too much time to be a surgeon in such current volatile area. Not only that, he doesn't know what UNIFIL is. Dude wants my picture. I'm not sending any on the internet my picture. It's too dangerous these days.

This is the 3rd time I have "entertained" someone online. Every, single time they want my picture, my number and ITunes card or financial assistance.

Game request in words with friends. Has a pic of 2 drs for his profile. Several days of game play and he messages and says I play a good game. Says he is an orthopedic surgeon currently working in Aleppo with war refugees. He was working at a New York training hospital.

I had already checked out Facebook and saw his profiles were fake. He slipped up yesterday and called me sweet baby girl. So now I am waiting for him to ask me for money or profess he is falling in love with me.

He is my 2nd James Williams scammer this week. The other 1 worked on oil rigs. This week Mark Anderson an engineer in Florida professed his love after 3 messages. Victor Leo from Nyc worked on an oil rig, Feller Tomas worked with the oil rigs. I have confronted them which they did not care for.

Oh they all want to chat in hangouts. Stay safe. Be smart, check things out. Never send anyone anything or give out personal info. If they send pictures do a reverse search, checkout facebook, twitter, Instagram, google.

I hope this helps at least 1 person. Nigeria, foreign countries, oil rigs, drs, widowers, hangouts are all red flags. They steal photos from real profiles and will send them to you.

Plenty of fish
by: Megan

Hello Megan, Thanks so much for sharing so much information about yourself with me and being open, i really appreciate that, trust you are enjoying your day and not stressing yourself with work in anyway. You seem like a really wonderful woman and i appreciate the fact that you took your time to write me. My work takes most of my time but i really need a woman that would be there and welcome me when i get back home from a hard days work with a charming smile and hug. I'm not getting any younger and like a friend told me, loneliness kills (smiles). I notices you didn't answer all my questions on my last mail to you, here are same questions again for you to answer..

Although i spend lots of quality time with my son, it would be much more fun having that special woman to make my house a home. I have never tried this online dating before but i believe that we can both connect in several ways that i don't know yet. Your profile tells of a warm and loving woman, as time goes on I am patiently waiting to get to know all about you... When I choose to know a person I take my time and know the innermost part of them which is the most beautiful part that we can not see with the ordinary eyes. Am widower with one loving son, I lost my wife and my daughter 5 years ago, my son is 15 years old. I am a doctor an orthopedic surgeon I work with the United Nations but presently in Syria due to the war here serving humanitarian services and refugee rescue.

The things I love most in life are my family (most especially my child) he comes first in everything i do, my work and cycling (I've been cycling since I was a kid, and I really love it.), My family means so much to me and I will protect them with all my might. But the most important person in my life is my child. he is the light of my world. he makes me strong in facing this hard life. Can't imagine what life is without having him by my side. I never stop thanking God for giving me such cute and loving child. My dreams for the future are to be successful in my career and to be a good, loving father and husband. I am trying my best to be the best dad for my child, and I want to be his best friend as well.

I like all kinds of music as long as it is nice to hear and has deep meaning - especially ballad, blues and country. I like action, comedy, drama and romantic movies. I don't really like horror movies not because I'm scared but mostly because it has no ending. I have a good sense of humor. I like working with computer. . I like to write though I am not a good writer ... as you can see. I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke but I don't mind being around smokers. They really bother me though sometimes. I am a homey person. I like to just hang around in my home. I am not a good cook though I can do pretty well when I'm in the mood. I don't like going to the disco or bar. To me it's just wasting the time and money for nothing useful. I like going to the cinema. But I don't go there for quite some time. I don't like people talking nice and sweet about me when I'm around but talking bad behind my back. I am a very impatient person. I want to do everything quick. When it comes to a relationship, to me honesty is above all.

l will stop here now and not bore you with my lengthy letter, i just want you to know that there is a special place in my heart that i am looking for that right woman to fill and stay in it forever... Well, i don’t know what more to say more, but I’ll like you to ask me whatever you want to know about me, will be very glad to tell you all you need to know, and would be waiting eagerly to hear from you.

Respectfully,

Oliver

YEP, there they go again! Thank goodness you're aware of these little costly schemes as you notice how all have a child and wife has expired in some kind of accident. Amazing.

Thank goodness you're on top of things. Presently this is what's happening to me and he admitted to being Nigerian and that his friend wants him to admit what he did. Scamming people. I think they are changing their tactics. What a bunch of dick heads! Anyway, moving right along, we're in a good place now. We don't have to worry, because we had a hold on this scamming.

Take good care and God Bless.

This is incredible!
by: Anonymous

Well his name is Aliyu James this time! Surgeon working for the UN in Afganistan. Interesting though, because I insisted that he video chat with me so I could see him. We did video chat briefly. However the reception was poor and indeed he did appear to have on a white coat, had black hair, and light skin similar to the pictures he sent me of him posed with his son. Crazy right! He told me they weren't allowed to video chat in Afghanistan because he would be considered a spy and that he was risking his life to contact me.

Someone was definitely standing there in that white coat! How can anyone be in love within a week! Thank God I'm a sleuth and began to Google to find out what was up with this dude. Told me how beautiful I was and that he wanted to marry me! Within a week! He has a son named Alfred, and his wife died years ago in a gas accident.

This is shameful. Thankfully I know better now not to communicate with him. We can all learn from this.

No I've not heard of this creep/scammer but they use different names and you say that you're out of $250? Well, I'm out of $5,500 so that makes me more of a sucker than you.

Thank your lucky stars that you caught on quicker than I. When this happened to me I was so innocent and naive and I never heard of scamming. But I sure know about it now, $5,500 of knowledge.
They use the same scenario as follows: Orthopedic Surgeon, 1 child living with a nanny while he serves with
the UN (United Nations)...will fall in love with you in a heartbeat, because God meant for the two of you to be together. But oh, he'll ask for ITune card so that he can download his files...it goes on and on...the more I type this the angrier I get and I don't want to do that to myself. My family doesn't know that this has happen to be, they just wonder why I don't have money to spend...and that is because I took our a loan to send to this trash because he needed it ....I can't go on...too painful...JUST BE SMART OUT THERE...DON 'T BECOME A VICTIM...MOST OF ALL, LOVE YOURSELF.

This is a SCAM. Please don't believe him. This is how it starts. My scam found on the game Words with Friends. Then lo and behold, he was in love with me in a matter of 3 days and I BELIEVED HIM. Actually, I never heard about SCAMS...but believe you me, I learnt about it fast though it cost me $5500. I was too late learning about SCAMS.

My scammer was a surgeon working for the UN.
BEWARE we need to work together to get these crooks.

Scam still around
by: Anonymous

Dr Oliver James (aka Olly James) is still using this scam. Still Using words with friends to do exactly the same thing; please use hangouts. Claims to be 52 and working as an orthopaedic surgeon for the UN currently in Afghanistan for a while. Can't accept hangout calls as due to safety issues and needs permission.

Says he lost his wife 4 years ago in a fatal accident in the States. This time says he is from LA and living in London.

My radar sounded as he said he was falling in love after 3 days and then asked me to email his son as he wasn't talking to him and he wanted him to understand him. Grammar still dodgy but I stupidly thought this was because he was using a phone (it happens to the best of us).

I cottoned on after a few days and have blocked him.

Continuation re Oliver James. He found me on Facebook playing the game Words with Friends and then suggested that we go to Hangout which I had never heard of that before, but that's how it all started.

I am so happy that you are smart enough to know better. I THOUGHT that I was intelligent but, I might have to differ on that. Though I am well educated, I sure did not see this coming. I really truly didn't know scams existed. So innocent was I. Whew, still paying for my mistake.

I just have to respond to your comment because most importantly, you are RESPONDING in a positive way to this SCAMMER. This tells me that my sharing my UNFORTUNATE EXPERIENCE is helping someone else.

YES YES YES his is a scammer and he won't ask for money just yet but he will and for me it started with itune cards so that he can download his files...OMG was I a sucker. He related that he had a 14years old daughter living in Austin, Texas with a nanny due to the fact that his wife was lost in a fatal car accident. He can sweet talk, however, it was so good that I swear this crook had a literature book or book of poems on his night stand.

I WANT TO THANK YOU for being smart and recognizing this FOOL as you know I find it hard to call him stupid names because he's the one with my money so you have to ask yourself who is the FOOL????LOL!

I am currently talking to someone on Hangouts that is going by James Oliver. He is a surgeon working for the UN and has a 14 year old son, Jeffrey. He lives in Texas. He randomly sent a Facebook request to me but then asked to go to Google Hangouts. I have chatted with him for nearly a week and he has professed his love to me, however no one can or should "love" someone only knowing them a week, especially online. He has not asked for money or anything yet.

I decided to randomly google his name and came upon this article. Thank you for speaking out. He contacted me this morning by email. His email is jamesoliver0725@gmail.com.

He is still online with me on Hangouts. I haven't told him what I know but the best part about it is that I KNOW!!!! Thank you so much for coming forward and helping others know about this horrible scammer.

The first time they ask for MONEY BEWARE! That is a tell-tale sign. He will sweet talk you then insist that he's madly in love with you then ask for money to buy a ticket so that he can come to you. With me the scammer first asked for i-tune cards so that he could download all of his files.

THEN he'll ask for you to write to his vacation office to say that you are his wife and that because of a family emergency he is needed home...damn, the more I relive this nightmare I like to kick myself.

I pray this guy is killed in the worst way.

YES, it sounds like that idiot. He used to boast about how much money he had and couldn't get to it. OMG how stupid I was...so innocent of scams and didn't know it existed.

When I reflect upon this incident I can't believe how gullible I was. I have to stop beating myself up. I guess I was starved for love...pity. I can't believe he's still using Dr. Oliver James, Orthopedic Surgeon for the UN. He had a daughter 14 years old living in Austin, TX and a nanny was caring for her. His wife died is a very bad car crash.

Now every Nigerian looking person I see I want to run over with my car, but don't mind me, I'm still healing. I've done a lot of research on the different kind of scams and I like to think I'm very knowledgeable about ALL KINDS OF SCAMS now. I hope. Take good care.

I believe this same person may have contacted me through Match. He claimed to be a General Surgeon and Orthopedic Surgeon for the UN and was currently living in Somalia. He had a vacation to Cuba planned and was being sent to Florida in 2 months. He had 2 daughters and his wife died from cancer about 4 years ago.

I knew he seemed too good to be true so I started pounding him with lots of questions about his education. He was very slow to answer and his grammar was quite questionable for someone with so much education. I asked for his LinkedIn profile and he said he had never heard of LinkedIn.

I knew immediately that something wasn’t right so I immediately blocked him. Oh, and he quickly asked to start chatting through Google hangouts because he was closing his Match account.

Wait a minute. Are you me because you sound exactly like me. I was scammed. I was you. But I quit kicking myself. Mine lasted longer.

These people are con artists from Nigeria. They are good at their "job" because they've been able to perfect it for years as you aren't the only one.

We got roped into their game because people like us couldn't imagine such an evil thing to do. We didn't know scamming to this level even existed. We just didn't know. And how could we?

It's not that you are desperate looking for love. We thought we found it. I'm in hella of a debt right now and it's a price I have to pay for having a big heart.

I'm in the same boat. And the sick thing, is these scammers are riddled all over the dating sites. I can now spot them a mile away and the red flags have become personal. Lesson learned is an understatement.

Where do we go from here? We rebuild. You are not the only person this has happened to. So please stop beating yourself up. I have to believe that this happened to us for a reason. Because whatever is in store for us in the future, we now have the knowledge and experience to over come it.

Don't let the debt change your life. Don't get caught up in today's society of the fear of dropping your credit score. Just make sure you have food on your table and your the necessities to survive.

There Is NO OLIVER JAMES Orthopedic SURGEON

Please all of you suckers (myself included)THERE IS NO OLIVER JAMES-ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON.
I think he is using the same name because I told him it's a nice name and that I like the name OLIVER. This guy is smooth. I don't know what library he borrowed the sweet talking book from. I thought he was the best and had the most beautiful words ever spoken. I believed him. I believed in him and our relationship lasted for 4 months before the light went on. Though I did deny the most obvious.

First he asked for iTune cards. Why? because he had every intention of going on a leave of absence but he needs these cards to DOWNLOAD his files. yeah right!

Oh but I believed him. I believed him wholeheartedly and what I dummy I was. I could kick myself. His wife died in a car accident and he was left with a 14 year old daughter named Melvin taken care of by a nanny. Don't be a SUCKER LIKE ME! I BORROWED the money and I'm in debt now struggling to pay this off.

PLEASE be smarter and NOT DESPERATE to be loved. Wait, I'm going to kick myself a few times.

Allison Franklin
by: Anonymous

My partner got contacted on Facebook from a man called Allison Franklin with the following description of the "case". Mr. Allison Franklin is working as an Orthopedic Surgeon Doctor at the military base Chad, West Africa. He is among the soldiers that were sent from USA to Chad for a peace keeping mission. His working contract lasts to 2019. In the USA, Texas, he has a son, Pascal, who is turning 6 years in September and is living in an orphanage because his mother died in a car accident 2 years ago and there are no other relatives who can take care of him. Pascal has reached the age to start up a new school outside the orphanage.

Mr. Franklins mother (76) needs be cared for because she is so sick and at the intensive care unit for failing organ systems, and she needs treatment and constant monitoring and frequent nursing care. The whole situation is a burden to Mr. Franklin and he would like to take care of his son and mother himself as soon as possible. My wife was asked to pay for emergency leave for this person.

Has anybody experienced the same or similar case ?

Friend request on Facebook. After saying he loved me and wanted to be with me he asked me to buy and send him an IPhone or cash to get one. I knew then it was a scam. Called several times also. A thick accent, broken English. Said he was in London on construction and leaving soon for Africa. He said he had a son 25 yrs old. He has a house in Arizona and mobile home in Apple Valley, California.

I texted him he was a scammer which of course he denied and played dumb.

I am on a journey to expose men who do Facebook requests of me that are scammers. If I can help one person with is information I will have accomplished my goal.

James Stuart jamesstuart4141@gmail.com Started as friend request on Facebook. Says he is an orthopedic surgeon in Aleppo, Syria for the UN. He says he is from Georgia and has a 16 year old daughter in school and lives with her teacher. His daughter’s name is Shirley. He lost his wife and baby girl in childbirth and that is why he became a Dr. with the UN, to forget.

As they all claim he is a widow. He asked me to e-mail the UN at:

unitednationsservices07@gmail.com

He wanted me to request an emergency vacation from them due to the dangerous camp he is in and needing to see me and his daughter. I got an e-mail back saying it would be reviewed but $750 would need to be paid for the form. I knew what would come next that all his money was in the states. He also said he was on a list to go to hospital in Iraq very soon and he was afraid for his life.

So I was again told him he was a scammer. Of course he denied it and claimed he still loved me.

I will expose as many as I can from Facebook to warn women who might believe their lies and give them money. Please value yourself and know you could be ruined financially and heartbroken. My goal is to suck them in and get as much information from them as I can in a short period of time. They claim love for you within days.

So very sad and evil.

My elderly neighbor is being scammed by this person. He said he was in the UN and needed her to pay for his vacation to come visit/live with her (along with his young daughter); the amounts he was asking kept increasing, but always with the promise that she would eventually be reimbursed by the UN.

I believe she's in it for well over 30K. When I showed this page to her, she didn't believe it was the same person.

I guess the heart wants what the heart wants. And there is nothing I can do to stop it. It makes me so sad.

BEWARE out there. I reported being scammed by a Oliver James, Orthopedic Surgeon and I'm still paying for my mistake as I took out TWO loans for the sake of love. STUPID. Why I'm writing this, is that I still play Words With Friends on my computer and these kind of SCAMS are still going on. Certain words that those idiots use identify them.

I'm so AWARE now and YOU need to be AWARE also. I'm so happy that by sharing this stupid experience of mine I help to prevent this from happening to others. What a sad experience. I don't think I mentioned that initially, he had asked for iTune cards so that he could download his files.

OH MY GOD, how stupid of me. Now when I look back I can't believe that I could have fallen for something like this. I have to work very hard at not reflecting on this as I get ANGRY with myself, so so angry. It's hard, so hard to forget what I did...UGH!!!!

I‘m rather sure that this guy contacted me, too. This time he hadn’t got children but an awful lot of money that shall be sent to Germany (to me) as soon as I payed 8500 €.

AWARENESS...Scamming...You Could Be the Next One!
by: Anonymous

It makes me happy to know that by sharing my unfortunate experience with a Dr. Oliver James who SCAMMED me of $5500 caused an AWARENESS for someone who was about to make the same mistake. I thank you my friend for reading my comment as it saved you and I hope others will become AWARE of this SCAMMING business.

I was not aware that this kind of thing was happening. So so innocent was I. I swear to be vigilant in preventing such behavior from happening in the future. You too must continue to be more vigilant of what's happening. Sharing your experience can save another innocent individual.

BE AWARE out there as you could be their next VICTIM!!!

Most importantly, LOVE YOURSELF and know that your are SPECIAL!!

God Bless.

WARNING:Mark Williams and Admiral - Dr.Oliver James-Orthopedic Surgeon
by: Anonymous

PLEASE PLEASE...this is a WARNING for those of you who have been or will be scammed by an Oliver James who claims to be a Dr. Oliver James with a daughter named Martin who lost his wife in a tragic car accident and who is in Syria on a PEACE mission for the UN while the daughter is living in Austin Texas with a Caregiver.

But this is just one scammer with the name Oliver James. I've researched and there are others with the same story but with different names so PLEASE BE CAREFUL. They speak beautiful words but are instead CROOKED SCAMMING LOW-LIFE individuals. I was scammed for $5500 dollars.

Right now there is an ADMIRAL who is telling me the same story with a daughter named Madeline.
His name is Mark Williams from Fremont California who has been a widower for years so BEWARE! This is how the story starts. PLEASE BEWARE! They ask for the same thing: Honesty, Trust, Love and Understanding. They just ASSUME that you want a relationship. In his dreams!!!

Please love yourselves enough. Don't let this happen to you! When it affects the heart it is very painful and the pocketbook even MORE painful.

God Bless you all and may he keep you safe from these kind of low life people. May they all BURN in HELL!

Thank you

I am so thankful that I saw this post before I became another one of his victims. He even sent me an "official" looking UN application for vacation time. After reading your post I send him a goodbye message. I am a better person thanks to you and your experience. But I have sent money and things to others

If I'm not mistaken, YOU sound like a SCAMMER...
You say "Why report to the FBI?"

These lowlife trashy people need to be put behind bars! They are the scum of the land.
May they all burn in HELL!

Their day will come...that is for sure!

What is it with these orthopedic Drs in Syria? I met one and began research, finding many names. Where are the scammers? Nigeria? Is this a common identity. I never heard of it before. It can't all be the same guy. But they all have similar stories. And why report to FBI? If you will never get money back. I'm missing something.

Is there a place to view pics of these doctors.

I would find that interesting.

COMMENTS Regarding Dr. Oliver James
by: Anonymous

For the few of you who have commented regarding my very unfortunate experience with a so-called Dr. Oliver James, I want to THANK YOU. You have helped with the healing process. This has been a very painful experience FISCALLY!

$5500 is a lot of money. As for the heart, that was painful but not as painful as the $5500 LOL Like it was said, I have never heard of romantic scams and these lowlife people sure picked a winner!

I can't say it enough times but I hope they BURN IN HELL! Again, for the few of you who have commented, thank you and I pray that your healing was quick. We will all find love again...but will be more careful that we don't come into contact with trashy lowlife individuals like the so-called Dr. Oliver James UN Orthopedic Surgeon with a daughter called Melvin...GOSH, how could I have been so stupid!

Wish he had contacted me!
by: Anonymous

Shame he didn't contact me as I know a lot about orthopaedics and could have strung him along for a while! The most valuable lesson to learn from this however is NEVER EVER give them money, however much your heart feels you want to help them. All you are doing is funding their drug habits or criminal activities, so if you are contacted again please remember this and as soon as money is mentioned block them!

You go girl! Same here. I lost money but it was given from the heart. I also felt good about it. I can only hope karma will reign down on them.

Thank you for your post.

Mine was a special ops in the military with a daughter taken care by his mother and his wife died of cancer. It was all BS. After posting his picture, others chimed in and one guy said he was told he was gay.

All this from the same guy.
