Thomas Tomchak

I found this awful man, Thomas Marty Tomchak on Tinder. We both "liked" the others page & he started the conversation. He was quick to be Mr. Awesome Poet Guy in his messages! Asking a lot of questions about me & giving me information of himself.


He was 49, a widower of 2 years, 12 year old daughter Angela that lived with his aunt in a town 20 miles East of my home town. He was a petroleum engineer for BP. He was a top guy on the current project & was going to retire after this project was finished. He was working on the Oil Platform Atlantis off the Gulf of Mexico. He had lost his parents in an auto accident 6 years ago, he was born & raised in UK, England.

That is where he met his wife who died from cancer, and they met at college & married after that, and she had been his only love in life! He was in the UK until 2010 when he got his first contract job & moved to the United States with Cherry Point Refinery on Washington. His texts were some broken English. After 1 day of texting he gave me his cell & I unfortunately gave him mine.

He wanted me to use Google Hangouts one day after texting so we could do a video chat. The service on his end was poor so it was a brief encounter. I feel he only let it happen long enough so I could see his face to know it matched with all the photos he sent me of him! His voice was very deep & he spoke broken English, hard to understand. The poetic text came in each morning, and he would always ask "how was your night, how are you feeling right now, did you eat?" He only used my name 1 time in any conversations we had, he used babe, honey, my love and such.

After a week he tells me I am the woman of his dreams, how can I be so perfect & beautiful! He had been praying to find someone like me for he & his daughter! I would be his queen! He said he was a Christian God fearing man & he was happy I was a Christian too! He sent me photos of his daughter and said he told her all about me and she was so excited and she wanted to talk to me!

After that I really started doubting all he had said. The saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true it is too good to be true! So I put my thoughts and doubts to God & asked for a big sign to know if he was all a fake and the next afternoon after the usual morning poetic texts and questions he text & said "can
I call you I have good news?" So we spoke & he said "he put in for leave & it was approved, he could be out of there in 2 days but since he had an offshore check he needed $4,500.00 for the helicopter ride off the rig to the land, New Orleans, and his aunt had $2,000 she was sending but he needed the other $2,500." He said we would drive direct to a bank to get my money back after I picked him up from the airport!

When I questioned him he got upset & his tone changed & he was talking a lot & would not let me say much. I told him I was at work & would have to get back to him but I was not sending money since I did not have any & I have never met him, more importantly! He got upset & said "just call me back tonight." I text him a few hours after & said no way was I sending money. He called me & continued to plead with me with a lot more to the story of why he needed the money, the more he explained, the more I doubted.

He text me a photo of his work ID for proof that he was real. The ID tag was totally fake, was from Diamond Offshore. His title under his name was CEO/Supervisor which makes no sense, you cant be both! I did a google search of his name with the word scammer after it and found this information. When he called me later that night he asked me how could I hurt his heart and his daughters, I worry about money too much & I needed to stop being negative. I told him there was no money and I would not send money.

The next morning was the normal texts. I did not reply until late in the afternoon and told him I was not sending money and if he didn't understand why then he needed to stop contacting me. He did not respond until the next day in the afternoon with a photo that said "You're going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, its always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter."I replied "I am not the one who judges, that is for God to do! Shame on you! Do not contact me again!"

I never came out and told him what I had found, I just wanted to quietly go away. He has not texted me since my last text. He did not get any money from me. I only regret the time wasted and the information I gave him about my family and myself.

I am sorry to the ones who lost money!

I too was scammed by Marin Andy Salvador 50. I met him on Tinder. He told me he worked for a offshore diamond company. Sent me photos of him and his daughter. He wanted me to video chat with him on Messenger. Messenger removed his privilege to use messenger and sent me a message it was a scam.

So he told me to go to Google hang out and download it. Yes, broken English Conversations which only last 2-3 minutes. He sings the same song to me as the other women. When I googled his information and saw it was a scam I called him on it. He said it wasn’t him.

I told him I am forwarding his information to the FBI and that I also was going to contact Tinder, Match and the rest of the dating sites to let them know he is a scammer.

He then text me. F... OFF.

Martin andy savaldor scammer
by: Anonymous

Same exact story but he did use my name quite often even yesterday he was calling nonstop even as I went out after work when I went and had a drink and he kept on calling me and said baby please go home please go home you're too pretty and I don't want you out, and even as I came home he still called me several times and then when he did ask for money I said no way as you are a complete stranger so why would I give you money.

I told him he was a scammer and to leave me alone.

Yes, me too
by: Anonymous

Oh my God. I wish I had found this much earlier, as I was also a victim to this criminal. And yes unfortunately, I did send him money. Except I did speak to his daughter twice via video Skype and he gave me video and photos of the oil rig.

I have multiple names, photos and information that I am giving to the FBI and I have filed an internet crimes report. I wish I could talk to all of you!! I am currently in a bind financially, but I am going to hunt him down. I have photos of his passport and also a passport of one of his accomplices. I think this is a far reaching scam and needs to be shut down immediately !

Wow I knew something didn't add up. Engineers know how to text complete sentences. I hope that isn't his child. Current name Martin Savaldor working on an oil rig, in Gulf of Mexico however that rig is in Europe. He said he works for diamond offshore but the pic he sent was Seafox 4, which is owned by Seafox. Wife died 2 years ago from heart failure. Daughter is 12 and he is retiring after this contract.

I felt the conversations were one sided. I also got the sweet morning message that didn't seem to fit that of an educated engineer. Always called me beautiful, never my name. When things seem too good to be true they are. I hope he is Christian, and fears the eternal burning in hell as I told him then he blocked me. What a piece of crap!

Thomas Marty Tomchak
by: Anonymous

The cell phone number "Thomas" gave me and used was 509-282-8257. His name on tinder was Thomas Marty. He told me Marty was his middle name, Tomchak was his last name. When he sent me the invite on Google hang outs to do a video call the name was Thomas Moore.

In a couple photos he sent me it was from an app, I think the app was free tone, and the name was Martin Andy Savaldor from that photo. His facebook has his name as Thomas Marty Tomchak.

We started speaking on a Thursday and by Friday morning he had deleted his tinder account. He did not have a facebook account when we started talking on December 20, 2018. I came across one yesterday, January 8, 2019.

Looks like he maybe took a break from facebook or deactivated his account for a while. His last post was January 2, 2019. All his facebook photos are the same guy and little girl compared to the ones he sent me. He has no friends on facebook and only 4 posts on his wall with photos and adding his College he attended.

I reported his facebook for fake name.

Thomas Marty Tomchak facebook
by: Anonymous

When I first started talking to "Thomas Tomchak" I did not find a facebook page for him but I found one last night. Looks like he has had it since January 2017 but maybe just reactivated recently. Definitely the same guy in the photos he sent me, even with the "daughter" in the photos. Who knows if those are his photos or photos stolen from another person?!

Stainless Derrick Mattex Gulf of Mexico
by: susan

Sounds like I have been in touch with the same scammer! Good christian god faring man working for Shell Oil in the sea in Gulf of Mexico. Retiring this month!(of course). Divorced 6 years but she died anyway 4 years ago. Son living in Spain with aunt. Called me Queen so many times I started feeling like royalty! Finally asked for $1750 in bit coins which is electronic currency and of course why not! NO WAY. I was no fool.

Told him right out he was a fraud and not to contact me again. Of course then starts begging me to believe him and he would pay me back, blah blah blah. Maybe his boat will have an ending like the Titanic although those people didn't deserve what happened to them.

One and the same.
by: Penny

Sounds like the guy I dealt with. I put my story on here a while back. He said he was a few miles from where I lived and was working on an oil rig near Scotland and when I did a check of the boat near the rig as it showed the name in the photo he provided, it was berthed in Australia, he was so upset that I'd checked up on him.

I had the skype conversation lasting 10 seconds before breaking up, and that was to satisfy me that he was the guy in the photo. I told him to get a proper job.
