Scammers on Badoo

by James
(Vancouver)

I've been using this site for about a year and approximately half of the women I've contacted are fraudulent.


The site appears to even make money off of this as it charges  for "Superpowers" that enable you to get first crack at being scammed!

by: Anonymous

I went on the site to meet someone nice. A man started talking to me and said he was in the french foreign legion. He told me to come off the site and just talk to him. He has asked me to do hang up chat. I explained I don't have it so he asked me to add him on face book through a link because he was in the army and never added a face book account. He started talking to me through that saying he loved me after a few days and wanted me to be his wife. He said his wife and son had died in a car crash and he then started asking me for money. He sent some really nice pictures which didn't look real.

He then said his connection was going to run out and he didn't want to lose me and needed to talk to me day and night. I told him I wasn't sending money because I thought he was a scammer. He said I don't know what you mean and kept trying to butter me up. When he knew he wasn't getting any where he got nasty and asked me to send money through the westen union. I said no.

He is a scammer so watch out. I don't go back on the site now.

I met this guy about a month ago. He told me his wife cheated on him with her co worker. We chated for about a month. He said we were connecting. He told me he was in another state working and then all of a sudden he got this big contract and was going to the UK.

So I was like really. So I called the company he supposedly worked for and they never heard of him and they don't do contracts in the UK. Now he says his phone is broke and he can't text me.

Oh his name is Ryan from Lakeland florida

Failure to answer ?
by: Anonymous

All that is needed to weed out scammers is know what their profile location states, do a quick google map of distance between you and user/loser, and pose a ? Such as this(not using the city linked to profile but city approx. same distance but opposite direction).

"So the site says your in Orange Co., that’s not too far from me. How long have you been in the O.C.? If user responds quickly to error in location and corrects, there is a better than average chance he/she is Legit(so far). If user sidesteps the answer or doesn’t answer directly block him and move on.

These losers make their scratch by volume, so they are not going to focus on the little things as we can. Also for the guys out there, if you get the old "What are you on here for" question, immediately talk stuff about losers mother and inform him that it’s not cool to be living with mother when she is 65 (unless assisted living reason for squatting in basement for 47 years)

Robert Briggs
by: Anonymous

Be careful. I was talking to Robert Briggs force weeks. He has a daughter called Stacy and he came to the UK to expand his business. Born in Athens then moved to Las Vegas and now in Manchester as a chemical engineer. He was doing a presentation for a company in Florida and he went and he got the contract but had to do work in izmit turkey for 4 weeks.

He showed me the contract and there was a problem with getting the machinery over from China and he needed $5800 and asked could I get him a loan. I said no then he asked if his friend could put money in my account and then I send it too him. I said no then he said he had an appointment with the people from customs and he was taking them to lunch but needed $400.

So I said no. I asked him for a selfie and he starts going mad that I've called him a fake person and a scammer and reported him.

Please be careful as he is very charming

Warning Jtosin865
by: Anonymous

Warning to all. I found Johnny865 other wise goes by Mike Williams on Badoo. Is also on Instagram, Hangouts and Google Plus. Will chat with you sound charming not right away but eventually insists on texting or emailing a person. Loves this Hangouts thing. Will be all sweet but who calls someone baby and their wife and Queen?

After a few months this person asked for Bitcoin and Amazon gift card. Said needed this to move to Canada. I never gave in and I bit his head off and when found out some questionable pics on Google Plus the person blocked me. Beware he is not a 46 yr old gym trainer and father but a 22 yr old African male according to police.

Will say his name is Mark actually but real name is Eugene. Smooth talker I'll give him that, shame though wished was real as body was pretty nice. Contacted Badoo and I closed my account. I hope letting them know that they kicked him off.

Scammer Alert...Victor Fellin
by: Anonymous

Look out for a Victor Fellin. fellinvictor14@gmail.com 385-404-4062.

He's an Italian widower working as a geologist at Tesoro. Lives in Beverly Hills. Smooth talker, copied letters off the Internet, had to go to China for business, sent love songs. Used stolen pictures, but I also had a feeling the guy in the pics may be in on it cause I saw him while we video chatted, but then I couldn't hear him. I caught on early so I didn't get taken for any money.

Scam the scammers
by: Anon.

Many "female" scammers on Badoo. Well, they purport to be female, but they could be male for all I know.

The MO goes like this. They usually have bought a Badoo superpower. When you reach out to them they reply with contact details outside Badoo, Gmail hangout is popular with them. It's the typical romance scam, and eventually they will get around to asking you for iTunes gift card codes.

Yeah right, if you hand out an iTunes code to somebody you don't know you deserve to be scammed.

James Holland
by: Anonymous

A man on badoo going by the name of James Holland. 43, widow, with a son, David Holland (son is in a Soccer School Boarding School in Liverpool) South African working/living in Texas, Houston as an Engineer. Lives with his mom. His dad and sister passed away long ago. I might be totally wrong, but I am sure he is a SCAMMER.

a) Who sends his child to boarding school right after his mom died. While you live in up in Texas with your mom?

b) He does not sound, nor type nor communicate like an educated Engineer/Person.

c) FB profile created the day we started talking. Apparently someone hacked his profile and he has not sent out new friend invites yet.

4) Forever kept on texting and was reluctant to video chat.

When he called though, I could hear he was an African man, and did not sound Caucasian at all.
-> Oh, he couldn't video chat because his phone is broken and he will get one next month.

Engineer who can't afford a phone, but can send his son to an elite school in Liverpool?? haha!!

5) I asked him for proof, that he is he. I asked him to write my name on a piece of white paper, take a selfie and sent it to me straight away, so did I.

He got annoyed and angry that I insult him. I told him, the proof is in the pudding. It pretty much ended there.

6) Oh yeah, he asked if I could buy him a phone then we can chat and OFF COURSE I AM GOING TO SEND YOU MONEY...not!

Ladies & Gents Be Careful.

Genuine guys get scammed also
by: Anonymous

Not all guys are scammers, and must be unlucky if you think everyone you talk to is not genuine.

I work in IT and can tell the signs of deceit well.

But you are all right scammers are rife on Badoo, and yes the company is very shady when it charges you. Be very careful when accepting terms and conditions to not have their 1 click payments turned on otherwise you will make purchases without realising. I am sure they rely on this tactic.

Take care everyone

Badoo scamms
by: Anonymous kzn

Some men on badoo are not to be trusted. I started to chat with a man on badoo and we exchanged numbers and we sent each other messages and I became very fond of him. He vsited me to work and would constantly call me and brought lunch for me at work and take me home. He said he has bussiness until he introduced me to the blackmoney market and told me I have to give him sone money so he could buy a chemical to clean the money saying he is only introducing me because he could see that im working long hours and hd doesnt like it.

I didnt have the money and he kept on convincing me and he said I must go and apply for a loan so he could benefit from this together. He was so loving and caring at the time and kept on telling me he wants to spend the rest of his life with. I didnt apply for a loan as I lied and told him im not qualifying from them.

He started to ignore me and when I called he would hang up.

Nowhere is safe
by: Anonymous

I'm a Nigerian and I know what is happening in my country. We the innocent citizens are not safe either.... Scamming is everywhere here. Banks, telecommunication companies scams us in broad daylight and nobody will cough about it.

Sometimes your data will be stolen only to be used for a scam operation, so if something goes wrong you will go in for the crime you know nothing about. The government supports it with their body language. Imagine a minister of the federal republic asking Scammers to lend the government money. If the criminals that parade as law enforcement agents, after searching and harassing you only to find out that you're clean, they will taunt you by saying that "your mates are driving big big cars and you're trekking under the scorching sun with earmuffs.

So numerous to mention. Only God can help us.... But the truth is that "Nowhere is safe"

Ghana date site scammers
by: Anonymous

This is really getting out of control these date sites we pay to use to find local women to date and possibly a relationship.

I can’t even make this stuff on Instagram as I get messaged at least four to six times by all different women each day. They all say the states but are in Ghana taking care of mother or father !!

I started to wonder what the hell as they asked for gift cards or money for a surgery for a parent. They send all these pictures and yeah you are like wow!

I told a friend and she said that Ghana is the worst for date scams so I googled the area code they sent me to send money which I never did.

When I googled the zip code wow it was like flashing not to send moneys to these zip codes.
It took me to a site that has pictures that are stolen and used and within minutes i saw pictures that i was being sent by all these different women messaging me. So I sent each one the pictures and all the names they go under to each one and wow they still denied and asking why i don’t love them or so you are going to send money.

This sucks because I am really looking for a local woman but with all these date sites you pay for its all scammers and it is very disappointing that the sites allow this crap to go on!

Yes, these people were willing to give away personal ID infos, bank accounts or worst, they sent money to these online scammers, complete strangers and now they warn others not to follow their stupid examples. Common guys, you can't be that naive.

Be very careful about them, they promised the whole world to you, saying he is in the hospital and needs some money to pay the bills. He is such a very tricky guy. Almost every dating site he is in different alias's James Vaughn, Ben Wolters, Albert Ivor, same pictures but don't know which is his real name.

He claims that he used to work in Sarawak, Malaysia having a contract to NBC Oil & Gas Company doesnt exist. My question is whoever he was talking thru Skype when he was in Kuching, Sarawak with IP 203.106.139.209, Decimal:3412757454... ASN:4788...ISP:TM Net Country: Malaysia,,,State/Region ; Selangor..City: Seri Kembangan

Anybody who is an IT Engineer please help. He was born November 18, 1964. Place of Birth is Akershus, Norway a part of Oslo. There is a site he mentioned that he is from Norway. His mother lives in Scotland. Be aware if he contacts you.

He is a big scammer no consience, no heart

Have investigated
by: Anonymous

I had a scammer "fall in love with me". I'm serious. He revealed his true identity on live video. Since then I've done extensive investigations; asked him to tell it all to me ( yes he had to trust me) but the more I could learn the better.

They can't be embarrassed AND IT IS NEVER THEIR PICTURES. They steal dozens of pictures from social media, you tube, newspapers etc and photo shop. I'm in the process of writing a book on how to quickly determine where an IP address is from, how they get free phone numbers from any country, how you can check photos to name just a few things. Forget romance scammer sites. AGAIN THEY ARE NEVER EVER USING THEIR PICTURES.

I'm passionate enough about these scams to want to help others. A common story is being a widower with a child. I may do a blog in time but the book will be soon. I'll just use the pen name Bella. Yes he still contacts me daily. Still claims undying love. Most are from poor and corrupt countries where work is scarce and social programs to feed or house do not exist. Most are NOT feeding terrorists but only themselves dinner.

And YES I was a victim.

Be vigilant... Look for clues... No good liars
by: Anonymous

Yes, people are asking for a new phone or would you help your man if he needed it, and get offended right away as if I have money to shell out like that.

Karl Bennet is a fake or stolen picture, too. He told me his name is James Pendleton. How stupid!! What's your real name. I didn't fall for it, and two different types of men. He went from blonde and blue eyes to dreamy brown and black hair. There are lots of them in Nigeria trying to scam us. It's not about love. They want to play the game of conniving people to set up a new bank account.

I'm a victim of identity theft a few years ago. All people need is your name and birthday. Don't post real birthdays on web sites. Be careful. I did see some people from my city on Badoo. Badoo said it's from soho, England. But I looked on Facebook for fake badoo users and found badoo seems to mean "bad boy" in Nigeria.

Don't press anything Nigerian because it started stealing my pictures and even said it was doing that, too. Be careful. I actually feel it's not from England, but actually from Nigeria. I actually don't like bad people. Rich men are being swindled and killed. People aren't reporting it from embarrassment.

Anyway, please be vigilant. It's really not good in my opinion. Lots of swindlers who will rob, beat up, rape or kill. Not good. Stupid liars. I kept saying no, and he kept saying Omg, lol.

Be vigilant.

He had one son too who lived in Spain. He was in Spain as his father (his only remaining parent) was ill and had to have heart surgery. He needed £6000 to pay the medical bill.

I refused.

He asked me to ask my friends to find the money for him as he didn't want to lose his dad.

Man from Zoosk also man who used Badoo scam also ties in with Facebook Scammers
by: Anonymous

I tried a dating site called Zoosk. Quickly got a message from a man saying he is Irish, living in New York. That he is an engineer and he begins to call me right away with an Irish Accent. His pictures of him and his daughter look legit and also of his deceased father.

He says he's grown very fond of me, even sends me flowers to my home with a gift and then tells me he has won a contract and is going out of the country to South Africa. He continues to call me several times a day and keep me posted and then he informs me that his carry-on bag was stolen while he napped at the layover flight to South Africa which had his laptop, iphone, credit cards and important work related things.

After arriving in Cape Town, he send me a text message telling me that he needs for me to please help him by buying him a Mac Pro laptop, Iphone 6 and have them FedExed to an address he will give me and that he will fully reimburse me when he returns to the states.

I tell him that I don't have the means, money or way to do this and he refuses to drop it by trying to say things that would normally make a person feel guilty. I ask him to drop it, nothing will change and I won't be sending him anything. That he can do his job by finding other resources available to him there.

His attitude seeminly changes to one of a harsh one, cold and somewhat callous and although I am not for sure he is scamming me, I feel that he more than likely is.

I ran tracers on emails originally sent to me and viewed the code and saw where the original email sent to me was also sent to badoo.com

I fear there is a possibility I'm not the only one having this done to them.

Women beware of attractive businessmen who appear overly anxious to start relationships, make lots of promises then ask you for financial favors.

ERNEST BLANKSON on Badoo fell in love with me sending pics which I realised that he is downloading them.

He said he is in Texas and a Bussiness man going to Canada to drill the oil. I realised that he is a Nigerian. He said he sent a parcel for me to pay 800 pounds. But I didn't.

Martins saying the mum is dying. I didn't help this man on Badoo.

Why are you so cruel and liars

On badoo all men are liars and scammers. There are no genuine men as they ask for money and put downloaded pics.

I have been using badoo for about 5 yrs now and I have lost $400 because I believed this guy that knew all the right things to say.. I was threatened and so was my family.

Police told me it is a very common thing these scamms and they could do nothing about it unless we had met face to face...I have since then had at least 10 other trys by these so called ..looking for love.. men try to scam me.

The most recent is gabriel his skype address is joiedevivre20131... oh he is in love with me and his daughter wants to email me and meet me... lol all this from me saying he was good looking.. he refuses to webcam so i can see his face .. lol really.

Also ther is a Allen from victoriaville who is known on pig busters as a scammer... carefull

Yes they are on Facebook, Badoo, Zoosk, tagged, and they are everywhere. They write beautiful messages, they send you beautiful songs,they profess their luv in a short time, and they say things to you to make you feel good about yourself.

They give you photos that look good, they want you to send sexy photos, and they are becoming highly educated.

Put a photo of them in Google images and you will be surprised what you find as I was. They have many identities, so download a program called Detect invisible users - it works great, as it shows you when they are online even if their status is invisible as they are chatting to their next victim.

I know I used all these, and I caught him out, so I suggest you do the same, so don't go there if these signs that I have written about are there because they are scammers.

Also they say they are from your country, they work as engineers on oil rigs, or they work in the mines.

I played the game and its made me aware who are scammers, plus they promise you the world and they say lets listen to the music together my luv of my life while they are scamming someone else.

It happened to me,so take note of what I have written.

Every man I have met on Badoo is using stolen pixs and fake profiles. Although I have only met one person who has become a friend and is not for dating just for friendship.
