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!!!

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 ?

Regards Ole

Scammer: Warren Mark 682-352-0520 warrenmark329@gmail.com

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.

Scammed by Dr. Oliver James
by: Anonymous

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.

Scammed by Oliver James Orthopedic Surgeon
by: Anonymous

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!!!!

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
by: Anonymous

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

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.
