Words with Friends Scammer

Watch out for a Roy Ivan and David Williams. Both widowed oil rig engineers. Roy was not as slick as David, but they both thought we were destined to be together. Thank goodness I smelled TWO RATS and did some google searching. Deleted them both.

David Grain
by: Anonymous

I played word with friends as king as I remember. I was a scrabble lover, then found this game and were playing this game for fives years now. But since August, I started getting all these messages and when I didn’t answer, they left the game.

I changed my picture and ignored them all. But it happened. One day when I was frustrated with every one around me, I answered one of the texts. He was not handsome and he was old and I thought to myself, I will be safe talking to him. But I was wrong, after 3 months of time wasting long hours of texting, and losing around 13K, very accidentally I searched his image in google and found out that he was using another person’s pictures and the whole story he put together was a lie.

I don’t know how I believed him. Now that I think back, I think they have an organization, and they all have studied psychology. I feel like for the whole 3 months I was under a charm or something. It even took me a month to be brave enough to come here and talk about him.

His name is David Grain. He is using Gustavo Lazo’s pictures. He claims to be in Greece and trapped in a ship and needs money to get out. I am guessing he is from Nigeria.

Please be careful. I deleted word with friends, the only game that calmed me down - but it cost me 13K and the feeling of getting raped. It hurt so much specially when I couldn’t talk about it to anyone. I feel ashamed.

If you guys want us to join than simply provide a link to the FB page. If the group is private and has security questions to join, the vetting can be done there. It is odd that people keep posting their email addresses here on an open forum.

My WWF account has my first name and last initial, it shows United States as my location and a picture I haven't posted on social media because I don't want the scammers to reverse image search and find me. I'm not sure how you can vet from a game.

Leaving

I'll be leaving also. There is way too much drama for me. I hate to say it but it almost sounds like bullying going on. I've played long enough that I can spot a scammer immediately, so therefore I really don't need to be here.

God bless the women/men that dont realize they are being scammed.

With that being said, good luck to everyone!

What is wrong with us?😠
by: Anonymous

This is all getting ridiculous as there is way too much finger pointing going on here! This is sounding was too immature for me. This started out as a genuine site to discuss scamming and make others aware of the dangers in getting involved with these fake people.

Now it seems we are turning on each other, the very people who we are trying to help. This is getting ridiculous.

Men have a saying, "Bro’s before hoes’. What is wrong with our gender, why must we pick on each other and turn on each other? Even when we try to help another uncover who her "man is" she ends up turning on the one who helps her to discover he was fake in the first place. Our gender better get it together. Perhaps we need to form a group called ‘Gams before Scams’ or ‘sisters before Dicksters’

At this point I think we are all pathetic from those of us who have been scammed right to the very ones who are trying to expose these scammers! It seems our gender cannot unite! And we should be ashamed of that!.

Ladies hear me, we are not going to stop scammers or scamming. It is the only way some of these people can survive. Be that right or wrong that’s the way it is so we better face the reality of it.

I am sad to say I’m signing off here, I don’t want to deal with this nonsense anymore.

I do not start chatting however, that account was created specifically for people to add her so she can screen them from new site so the only people that should be adding her are ones that are interested in joining the group and the way that is done is by talking to them.

In order to join the group when she first created it (and it was here that we all came from that are in the group) we all went through the same process of playing against her. It was on a different account but again, she doesn’t give that one out because she doesn’t want to get burned from scammers and get on a block list where she can’t get new games from them so she created a generic one just to screen the people from here.

So with that being said, she knows where the games are coming from so in order to quickly transition from the game to group, she has to chat.

Why is this so bothersome to you? Again, if you are that skeptical about it then resign the game and move on. We aren’t begging you to be part of the group but if you choose to do so, you will appreciate the safety measures she is taking to protect us that are in the group and make sure it’s not infiltrated by a scammer.

Starting the chat
by: AnyBee

To hasten things along if I think that the guy is taking too long to launch a conversation I will launch it by making a comment about a play that they just made. Sometimes if I’m playing at LR lightning rounds and I’m playing with someone who looks to be suspiciously a scammer and they have been dropped out of the round for whatever technical reason, they get a star beside their name so I will game them because they don’t have a chance to game me.

I may start the conversation thanking them for accepting if they pick the game up and they play. Some just go with the flow and they’re happy and excited that somebody chatty is playing with them, but others are extremely cautious. They’ve learned to be suspicious of women who suddenly start a game with them.

And they get even more suspicious of the woman starts the conversation.

I also will also confirm that she is not a scammer. She started that account just so she can screen people from here. She doesn’t want to give out the account she plays on because if she gave it out here, the scammers lurking would block her and her account would be useless.

If you truly think she is then resign and block her. Simple as that..but you are wrong. And honestly if you are that skeptical and negative on it then you aren’t someone we probably can do without in our amazing group.

We are are a fun group, we laugh and have become friends and we are protective of each other as well. So if the group isn’t for you then don’t bother, no hard feelings; we will continue to do what we do.

That.old.chestnut why do you think this person is a scanner

Good afternoon.

Not too sure why the person stated this person is a scammer, is it just by the date of their account? I am currently playing people who have been around for years and they use the same script many scanners use.

What other red flags besides date they started playing leads you to believe they are scanner?

I am aware who that.old.chestnut is and she is not a scammer.

So first of all you are incorrect. They are not a scammer. They are the admin of our group and they do an amazing job at it. They have the new account to get potential new members of the group because scammers have tried to infiltrate our group and we share a lot of useful information that we don’t want them to know.

And we all have a couple of accounts we play on. We never use our real account, we all have secondary ones and when those get burned from playing too many scammers (because yes they are savvy to us as well), we start new ones.

The easiest way to vet people is to play them before giving out private information.

Trust me, it’s nice to have people who play the same scammers and we can get them disabled much quicker that way. If you don’t believe me, that’s up to you. But for our unique group, we respect and enjoy the person that is behind that screen name.

If they start up a chat and start asking many personal questions 99.99% chance they are scammers.

Don’t get me wrong I have met quite a few people on WWF and we were total strangers at first. We may have am occasional chat such as nice play or wishing them a nice holiday.

If you suspect they are scammers you can report them to Zygna. There are so many scammers out there who treat WWF as a dating app, one told me it was, and want to get you offline so they can ask for money.

Go to settings, go to manage block list. On the right click the 3 lines and then choose report abuse. Scroll until you find their name and then report. We usually do for unwanted contact and fraud.

And to the person that is questioning about the group, trust me, we are legit and good at what we do. We are close group and have a lot of laughs. Through our time, we have gotten so many shut down, always working on more and along the way have gotten details of how and why they do what they do so it’s easier to combat them head on.

Scammers beware
by: Anonymous

I enjoy playing wwf but have been approached and once fell for scammers tricks. Whenever I go on now I go through the "play someone new" profiles - male and female and if see someone who looks a bit dodgy pull off their profile photo and do a quick reverse image check.

If they show up under different names, scammer sites etc then if I see a mutual friend playing them then message to them to be careful.

It’s amazing how many times I then get messaged back basically telling me to mind own business.
My IT skills are good so if I am 100% sure they are not genuine please take my warning seriously.

Then I report to Zynga who hopefully take them down and they have to start again though I dont think this actually happens sadly.

As I clearly said, we get requests from scammers, which is why the group is no longer visible.

Playing with people who might want to join and chatting with them to verify that they are genuine has worked well thus far and is how we will continue thanks.

Of course anyone can start their own group and run it as they see fit, but this is what WE do.
Anyone I choose to email will realise PDQ that I am not a scammer but a scam baiter...its not rocket science.

It is also their choice to do so, or to game me on That.Old.Chestnut as several have done already.

I have scammed probably 50 to 60 of these guys. I do this in an effort to help them realize that we are on to them. I know that is a drop in the bucket but everyone that I string along and then expose may possibly save some woman thats willing to give them their money. Does anyone know of a site where we can go and exchange pictures of these guys easily?

Also, wanted to share that a 24-year-old that I exposed yesterday, subsequently spoke with him and recorded I am explaining the lack of opportunity in Nigeria. Says he feels horrible about himself but he has to survive. Even if you manage to do this, they will still try to pull at your heartstrings. If they can’t take you one Way they may come at you from a different angle.

You are telling the truth. No matter how much we continue exposing the scammers there will be women out there still believing the lies of scammers. We all know the scammer’s rhetorical questions. We all know their wife’s dead or divorced and they have one or two children being raised by nannies and attend a boarding school. They are from a foreign country, live in the USA and are currently in a 3rd country. They are out on a rig, on a peacekeeping mission, or work for the UN.

I do get discouraged that some women do not want to know the truth. All we can do is provide the evidence and pray the women escape. It is better your heart hurts now while you still have money in the bank, haven’t sold your car, haven’t mortgaged your house, etc.

I’m not sure what more evidence you need, I have been playing for 8 years. I have had so many that end up confessing who they really are, how they do it, why they do it and have pictures of them in action. He is definitely a scammer. I have zero doubts. There are some that I play that I wonder and have to dig deeper in but this one is classic scammer 101.

His picture shows up on other scammer websites as well. If you do video chat with him, they do have ways to use someone else’s pictures and videos. Or they say it’s dark or the camera doesn’t work right. He blocks anyone that presses the issues with him on his inconsistency in stories. He is looking for someone who won’t question his stories.

We need to understand that regardless of what concrete proof we have that some one is fake, there are women who are desperate to believe in the love and lies that are being fed them. They don’t want to see the proof because it destroys their mental image of the fairy tale they are living in.

We have to find solace in the fact that we tried to save them but in the end we have to let them make their own choice.

Yes I did chat with him. I don’t give a lot of information but his script was the same as all the others. He didn’t do the 20 questions per se but I got enough to determine he was a scammer. Somewhere along the way, I was passed to someone new because the tone changed.

They work in rings, they have different levels and when they aren’t getting anywhere, they pass on to try a new tactic. He didn’t like that I asked about the cheat app so he hasn’t rematched but there are others that are playing him as well so we will see what they come up with.

Don’t use your real information ever! I pick a place I’m familiar with to say where I am from. I do give my real job most of the time, sometimes I am married, sometimes not but more lately I just respond that my marital status 3 questions in doesn’t have any relevance to the game. I never say how many kids I have, if they ask names I make them up like Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Ask them their favorite place to eat..you won’t ever get a real response, Google their area and pick a place and pretend you know it, they don’t know you don’t and they can’t give answers about their own neighborhood. The story will change, they will have just moved there recently. If a guy says he is from Alabama, ask Tide or Tigers. They can’t answer and won’t understand the question. Generally they Google the definition of Tide lol. If they have on a sports jersey or hat, ask them round about questions about the team, like oh do what do you think about so and so. They won’t know what you are asking either. If they say they are military in Afghanistan, ask them if they liked the surprise for Valentine’s Day or what ever close holiday or even not, they freak out and change the subject and then usually they are back in the states. Just act like you know something they don’t, they will block or resign immediately. Tell tell sign if a scammer.

Push back a little on them, if they can’t give a real answer or dance the questions, they are scammers. Use Google!! It’s your friend!!!

My suggestion is to create a secondary profile and use that only.

So I added him and played a few games. My take...he uses a cheat app, he is much smoother than most but is definitely a scammer. Don’t fall for his niceness.

His script is a little different but we are finding that they are changing it up a bit to avoid being disabled so quickly and by having a longer playing history, women are less likely to suspect them.

by: Anonymous

Anyone ever chatted with a Carl Wood? I've been chatting with him on and off for months. He doesn't say all the same old things; still wants me to go to whatapp or hangout or give him my contact information. None of that will ever happen.

Says he owns a record label, has a 17 year old son, from Germany originally. He's never asked for money. I'm not going to have anything to do with him, or give him any information. I'm just curious if he's a real guy.

He's a real "sad sack" and "needs" a woman in his life, and of course it's me lol. Just curious if anyone else has encountered him.

Thanks!

Henry Stewart
by: Anonymous

I dragged Henry Stewart around for three solid weeks. He believed I was going to send him 21K. I took him all the way up to the point of that I was headed to the bank then I had an emergency and had to leave the bank. Went back to the bank, put the wrong account number on the deposit slip, and the teller couldn’t deposit the check then I had to leave to go help my sister, then I had to go back home then it was three more days until I could go back to the bank.

All while he breathlessly waited believing that he had it made in the shade. One of my best girlfriends helped me with it, I tormented that man until he was almost crazy. Now after sending him an email letting him know what a worthless life form he is, he is a puff of smoke.

I had a great time doing it! Wwf, I am making it my guess as to personally clean up that site. I have finished off 18 in the last four days. Do you wanna make them run away really fast? All you have to do is accept their chat, ask them if they’re one of the Delta State boys and they become a ghost. I know there are many of you that have sent money and I am doing it for all of you.

If you have a photo. You can reverse search on the picture. I have done it a couple of times, you will be surprised who shows up. I was chatting with someone who called himself henry morgan and had him on a couple of times about being a scammer, but he insisted he wasn’t, anyway I did a reverse search, and the photo was of a well known chef.

I had him on about it and he came clean eventually, and he did try posting another photo and I checked that one out.

I sort of feel sorry for them, I believe their circumstances are not the best, but that’s no excuse to lie.

GSTUD$
by: Anonymous

Played a couple games with "GSTUD$" from Oregon. In his profile picture he's wearing a red Atlanta Brave's baseball cap and a dark long sleeve shirt with a Seattle Seahawk's blanket and plant behind him.

He's Level 19 and seemed legit although he looks 50-60 years old and used a lot of words to try to appear/act younger. Chat started off normal. Asked where I was from and he was telling me about Oregon. My account has been working off and on and I told him that. He said "cool" and then his very next message was asking me what my "bodily appearance" is.

I was starting to respond and he asked me if I like "large c**k" and as I started to respond again, he starts telling me "your week [you're weak]" for not engaging with him. He went from average Joe to nasty and inappropriate without me having showed him any interest at all. I don't think he is a scammer but should still keep an eye out for him.

Yes, exact same issue. Started about 3 weeks ago and couldn't play for like 10 days. They fixed it and it worked for a day. Then they fixed it again and it has been ok for a week and now broken again.

I contacted support and they know there is an issue but it doesn't seem like they have found a fix. They told me to log out, force stop and log back in. That worked once. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled.

My friends on iPhone/iPad can play so I don't know if it is an android issue. Boggle is down as well so it looks like it is affecting Zynga games in general.

Any Nigerian, or anyone claiming NOT to be Nigerian but America/German/whatever but who is obviously not, who starts chat on WWF is after ONE of TWO things.

1: Money
2: a Ticket out of Nigeria

The latter can also be in the form of money, or it can be a marriage Visa. Any Nigerian talking to you on WWF is after a wife or your cash.
Myself & a group of friends have been playing these guys for a year now & have first hand experience of their gangs, as well as inside information on how they work.

We share info between us in our group & bring them down as often as we can.

Yes, there are good Nigerians, we know many, however they are not the ones talking to western women on WWF :-)

Truths and Lies (Andreee R.)
by: Anonymous

To the person contemplating her relationship with Andreee R, I just want to say that I became involved with a man on WWF for most of last year before I finally realized that he was a romance scammer. Many of us share the same experiences.

Looking back, there were red flags along the way, but I didn't want to see them and made excuses for his behavior because I thought we had such a special connection online and could possibly have a real relationship one day. He played on my loneliness and vulnerabilities.

Eventually when he had gained my trust, there was the "money emergency," and when I didn't do what he wanted, he became very annoyed and nasty and the relationship deteriorated. He wasn't going to waste anymore time on me.

It affected me for many months afterward -- the loss of trust, the feeling of being used and played for a fool. I blocked him on Hangouts but secretly wished he would still contact me somehow, say he was sorry and that he wanted to change his life for the better. This never happened.

Trying to put together the mystery of what I was involved in, when I googled his name, there was absolutely nothing to be found. If he lived in the United States and owned a house like he said, there should have been something online, the college he apparently graduated from should have had him listed as an alumni, etc., etc.

And one day I got the courage to do a reverse image search and discovered the pictures he had been sending me were of an Italian model named Andrea Zanchini! I couldn't believe how I was so easily and thoroughly duped.

Everything about our relationship was a lie...his name, the stories about his life, even the face I thought went along with the words. He never cared about me at all. He was a devious scammer and I was one of his many victims.

I didn't give his WWF name here because he hasn't played recently and I sometimes still fear retaliation as he knows my real name and address. Probably has a whole new profile now anyway as these scammers change like a chameleon. Some of these guys (and girls too) are really, really good at what they do.

Mine even was able to pull off video chat with the face matching the stolen pictures. I don't know how he did it, but the screen was usually choppy and difficult to see and hear him clearly. He blamed the wifi at the hotel he was staying at for business and that he didn't have a good connection. They can be very believable and convincing.

If you are questioning things and not sure about someone you met online, go with your instincts and do as much searching as you can for clues. You may just untangle a whole web of lies and deceit and save yourself the hurt and pain of continuing in such a sham of a relationship. I sure wish I would have.

Not all Nigerians are scammers or bad people! But I understand your concerns. They live in a horrible place and they just want out of that country, and who could blame them? I would be more worried that you’d be his ticket out of that country but don’t judge him by what others are doing.

I have a lot of experience with honest Nigerians and they are kind and loving people. If you post your email address we can chat outside of this forum. I suspect you won’t get any support here. I’d love to talk to you.

Usernames
by: Anonymous

So just to push this to the top once again, the red flags that they are scammers are first they chat right away (they are getting smarter about it but still usually happens very early).

The script is hello, where you playing from, how long have you been playing, what are you experiences, what is your profession, are you married with kids.

If those things are said, 99% they are scammers. Most will give you their life story, I’m from here but work in a foreign country and they are all widowed from wife who died in accident or from some crazy disease or they are divorced from a wife who cheated on them.

They always say I can’t be here due to work so do you have hangouts or WhatsApp. With hangouts closing down, not sure what they will do now. Their English is horrible...no one as adults asks anyone can we be friends or I just want to know ourselves more better. Huge red flag there!!!

New scam is that they want to take care of you and will send you x amount of dollars to your cash app. Do not ever give them real information. The best suggestion is to create a new account with a different name that is not connected to Facebook and just use that instead.

Do not give out your real location, pick somewhere else. I am married sometimes, single, have lots of kids or none. I never give them real information at all. They like to use military and they are in Yemen which isn’t true for US troops or Afghanistan but they won’t know the base they are on.

There are groups that work to get them disabled. And please if you don’t play them, report as abuse as unwanted contact at least and not just block them. If they get reports of abuse they get disabled much faster.

But if you post their user name in the game here, those in the groups will play them to get them disabled but they have to have the full user name like johnmichael123 not just John Michael..

Sorry ladies but I can't believe some of you are still wondering whether these men are for real!
If they are working on the high seas - they're scammers. If they were born somewhere but now live in the USA - 99% sure they're scammers. If they want to go elsewhere- like Hangouts or WhatsApp - they're scammers. If they've 'lost' their wives and are looking after kids (maybe a nanny or at boarding school) they're scammers. If they call you dear - they're scammers. If they ask you are you married with kids? 99% sure scammers. I want to know you better - they're scammers. If they're with a peace keeping force in Aleppo - they're scammers. Major in the USA army - scammers.

I never give my WhatsApp number out, nor converse on email but try to keep them chatting to waste their time. Their English is usually crap. And they don't answer questions! Once I answered the "how is your day" questions with " I fell over and broke my leg" . The answer "okay, that's nice ". The majority of them are THICK!!!

In response to real or not
by: Anonymous

Asking for money for data is a scam. They want the money for data yes, but so they can still chat to other women & scam them too.

PLEASE never use Whatsapp - its not a great idea to give these guys your phone number. Hangouts, while it is still with us, is better, but there are apps that can allow them to get your email address from it, if you have added them. You may find your Facebook page hacked & sold, or friend requests from people you do not know (nor would you want to, probably).

Myself & 30 friends play these guys regularly & swap info on them on a Facebook group I have.
We are also in contact with their scammer units in Nigeria....we know how it works.

Can I also point out to the people who have said that all men on Words with Friends are scammers that this is patently untrue. I myself have made some excellent friends on the game who are genuine & as pestered by scammers in their female form as we are.

Straight off wanted my gmail address due to the nature of his job he couldn’t always be there. Could we email or hangouts. I could have his gmail. He was desperate. Wasn’t interested in the game.

Just persisted all the time about hangouts. I persisted back saying no. Eventually he said I didn’t understand he couldn’t be on friends due to the job. I told him "No what is you dont understand I’m not going on hangouts.

Guess what - he blocked me straightaway. Just decline if he pops up. He is one pain in the ass pushy scammer

I've seen him pop up numerous times with different names. He played a game and he asked me 3 questions. The usual...are you married? Where do you live? Then asked what I like to do then let's get to know each other more.

I called him out as BS. He told me I was a very negative person. Which set me off even more. He tried to get me to video chat to see that he has been hurt too. Lol finally I hit the roof and said so how many profiles do you actually have?! You keep changing your name.

He blocked me. Lol. He had grey hair and always wearing glasses. Says he is in Iran working with the military. Typical story.

All of them
by: Anonymous

They are all scammers. The short video chats are someone they are impersonating. The words they say if any do not line up with the mouth movement. I had a couple of them do this. I blocked my camera so they could not see me.

I always use a bogus email for them. I have gotten many to finally tell me their true identity and have never sent a dime. I have heard every story they have, engineers, doctors, military, UN peacekeepers. You name it I have heard it.

Never send money or gift cards. Do not let them suck you in with songs, poems, hearts and flowers. Their sweet words are all lies. They hope you are lonely enough to fall for them so they can have you as their bank account. They are unworthy of you attention.

Please be careful out there. Don't lose what you have worked hard to get and especially don't lose your dignity

Thank you. I blocked him. They are very persuasive. And yes, they are very good at it. I had a video call from him the first time we chatted. It was very brief, and really thought it was him. But he wouldn't video again, and he said the first one was proof he was real.

I blocked him 2 days ago and now he's trying to get me back thru email. Fortunately, I made that email just for him. I'll delete since it's not important anyway. No big loss on my part.

I'm glad I keep checking here. I don't trust these men. Sometimes we just get told nice "lines" (because honestly, that's all it is).

Austine N./Linda R./Mydogfuzzybear
by: Anonymous

I was playing Austine N. recently, middle age male photo, said he was from Holland, Michigan, currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, working as an underwater welder, married once but divorced his wife. One day he just abruptly resigned the game for some reason.

Later I noticed on the bottom of my game listings that the name had changed to Linda R. and there was a young woman's photo with a white dog. When I clicked on the resigned game, his male photo still came up in the upper right corner of the screen. Both players had the username Mydogfuzzybear. Linda R.'s location said Hebrew Union College, Jewish Institute of Religion.

It's just really weird how these players switch screen names and photos. I thought I was playing a male -- could have been a female -- who really knows anymore? Has anyone else played Mydogfuzzybear or had this happen with others players?

I guess the only thing that stays the same or you can believe anymore is that they are trying to scam you out of money in one way or another!

Foul Mouth Scammer
by: Anonymous

Anyone else play Andrew C./Andrewcolec9? His profile says he's been playing since Dec 12, 2020, from USA. Typical scripted conversation about nothing interesting or important, then a lot of pressure to go to Hangouts to "share pictures and get to know each other more better" even though I told him I was married. Figured he was a scammer.

I usually like to stall around to finish out the game (and get my win! lol), but this guy had a real foul mouth and the conversation just got vulgar. I had to block and report him after he asked if I had been f*cked hard lately. Disgusting pig!

I just hope this isn't a new trend to deal with playing the game. At times like this I really miss the good ol' days playing WWF without all these scammers and bad actors!

To the person playing Scott Williams, I am playing him on another word game, Word War. I only play these AH for entertainment, they use a scammers playbook to get all of their scripts, so when they ask a question, I use their own script to answer back.

The first thing I do is ask for their pic, then look for them on images, when they want one of me, I stall them and tell them I don't take very good pics, that goes on until I can get the real identity of their stolen pics.

Just be careful with these AH, and never send them cards or money, and stay vigilant.

Like many women on WWF I get approached by scammers constantly but this one really made me laugh. He launched straight into the ‘you are so beautiful, I want to be with you and make you happy. I know straight away when I see you that you were the one for me'! Why so funny? My profile picture is, quite deliberately, my much loved dog.

Interestingly, although I continually refused to provide him with contact details, personal information etc, he persisted for two days with his declarations of undying love and claims of being heartbroken. I did ask my dog but he’s not interested either!

"Things to watch for" comment
by: Anonymous

Your comment summed up a lot of the activity I've seen over the last year, but one other scenario that I personally experienced and wanted to add is the "eligible bachelor/businessman" who is single, never married, no children, no siblings, parents both deceased, self-described as a "loner."

Supposedly from the United States but travels frequently for business. You'll be the only person he can count on when his little financial crisis hits and his accounts are frozen because he's away from home and trying to take care of business.

My "bachelor friend" appeared to be wealthy with nice clothing and suits, a beautiful ultra-modern apartment, ready to retire soon as he apparently had quite a fortune set aside. Sadly he had been so busy with work his whole life he had never taken the time to find true love. So you just might be that special person to share it all with him!

Beware -- it's all a scam, very carefully played out and pretty believable if you're not suspecting anything. These guys are devious and you never know what their next little scheme will be.

Please continue sharing your experiences so we can stay informed!

Scammers hijacking other profiles
by: Anonymous

A lot of the same stories are already posted. These scammers will immediately start sending messages. You know it's a scam if you click on the profile, and the start date will be recent but the profile pic shows they're on a high level. One I had was the exact same story scam everyone was warned about.

He then accused me of being the scammer and got nasty. So now all I do is just keep repeating exactly what they sent me. They will soon disappear.

One said I'm from California, where are you from. I repeated the exact message. He then said, I'm from Miami, where are you from? They don't even pay attention to the conversation.

Love reading all these comments, but of course the majority of them are from people in the know! I've been having a few games with them myself - they obviously don't read your answers as they reply okay or that's nice to more or less everything.

One day I said I had fallen over and broken my leg - he replied "that's nice"! I've told others I'm a retired fraud squad officer. "What's that"? They sometimes say and I explain that I still report scammers if I come across them. Funnily enough most disappear then.

I've sometimes said I have 18 children and 45 grandchildren. They dont even respond. To answer one who asked me what I was doing today I told him I was making a wedding cake, doing a skydive, surfing, riding in a horse race and if I had time I would do a half marathon. All in one day. "That's nice!!" Bahaha.

I feel at least if they're talking to me then I'm wasting their time.

Things to watch for...
by: Anonymous

Here's what I've learned so far:

-They are all divorced or widowed with a kid(s).
-They either work on an off-shore oil rig, are an independent contractor, a doctor or are in the military...sometimes a combo of those.
-They will ask your age, marital status, if you have kids and where you are playing from.
-They will ask for you to chat on WhatsApp or Hangouts. If you tell them you have neither they will ask for your email address or insist you download the app.
-They will send "Alaye" as a message which is their way of saying they are a scammer and they suspect you are as well. The last time I sent "Alaye" the scammer sent back "Afar now" so I'm not sure if that is the new "code" word or not. One sent back "Boss man show me your ways. Only been doing this for a few days and you since 2011"
-They typically don't capitalize the first letter of their first name...not sure why.
-They recently joined and have 0 wins...a few have a handful. Average game score is low.
-They type "am" in place of "I am" or "I'm"
-They ask about your belief in God.
-They will ask you to do a video call so they can prove to you that they are not a scammer.
-They often call you "my dear" or "my friend" when chatting.
-They really drive home being your friend and tell you how much they appreciate your friendship (after a few basic messages).
-They miss obvious lies. For instance, I tell them I am from the north coast of the United States. We all know there is no north coast. One told me he lives in Vegas and I told him I go often and stay at the Hallmark Premier Hotel next to Bellagio. Anyone who lives there would know that is a lie. Instead he said he had been there and it is a lovely hotel.

There's a few I decided to call out and they eventually admitted that they are a scammer but try to get me to understand their government is corrupt and there are no jobs. They try to get me to still be their friend and listen to their sob story.

At that point I wish them good luck and end the game. Most will rematch and still try to get you to talk to you. A few of them have given me their phone numbers so I added them to my clipboard and give those numbers out to other scammers. One guy gave me his email address and it was his full user name with @gmail.com attached. I am not sure if this is their standard or not. I don't ask for their email or contact information. I only ask them the same questions they ask me and I do not any bit of romantic interest. I can only imagine what they say to women who actually express the same feelings to them.

Anyhow...sorry for the long rant, but I hope this will help someone!

His kids are being watched by a nanny.

Very charming talker. He wanted my cell phone number right away. Did not give it to him. I tried looking him up on the internet with the info he gave me, and nothing came up. When I told him that I thought that he wasn't being honest with me, he told me that I had trust issues. So I finally told him that his story is all over the scam internet, he deleted and blocked me.

Martin Carson and Other Professionals
by: Anonymous

He’s a professional scammer and grooming you for the "big haul." If they think you’re worth something they can get from you, they patiently build a relationship without ever asking for money or favors. After you trust them, are addicted to the love and attention they give you, are committed and think you will have a future together, they will make their move and ask for something major. And I’m not talking about a small gift card either. These guys will set up a major emergency and financial issue and need to quickly "borrow" thousands of dollars.

You trust your special friend, and because of the urgency and you not thinking it through clearly, many are able to get what they ask. If they do and when you realize you've been duped, you most likely will never hear from them again. If they don’t get what they want, they will become very nasty as they have become greedy and feel entitled to it. By this time, they will also know enough about you to try to hack into your accounts anyway or even try to get revenge by blackmail.

Believe me, I’ve been there. Don’t stay involved with him or any of these professional con artists. These are not the young boys in Nigeria just trying to get by. These are highly trained men who've accumulated quite some wealth doing this to lonely, vulnerable women. They know exactly what they're doing with the lies they make up, playing mind games with you, etc.

I was groomed like this for almost a year but, thank God, didn’t fall for the big haul. What hurts the most now is knowing I meant absolutely nothing to this person after talking to him for so long and thinking we had a special connection. He would have destroyed me financially in a minute and never cared.

You are just a person they are trying to scam, and they will just move onto the next unsuspecting person. They are despicable human beings without a conscience. At the end of one's life, whether or not you believe in God and eternal life or not, I wouldn't want to be faced with living a deceitful life like this all because of greed.

It's highly unlikely you're going to find your special person or soulmate on Words with Friends. Please realize what these men (and women) are up to and be very careful. Better yet, block them and move on with your life.

Any money that the government gets goes into the hands of its corrupt politicians! They live like kings while the vast majority is left to survive anyway they can. This is not meant to justify or defend the behavior of scammers...it’s not! It’s the facts of living in Nigeria.

Regarding... Poor and Slums
by: Anonymous

Wake up. Every time someone sends them money, gift cards, steam cards, etc it encourages them to get more greedy. If the person is actually that poor and lives in the slums then they can’t afford the computer that is used to scam people on their own.

Otherwise they are working in a room under the boss that is raking in millions or billions but only giving them a tiny amount. When you see photos of those arrested they are dressed very nicely. Donate your money to Feeding the Poor or to missionaries that help the Nigerians because this way 100% of the money is used productively.

DO NOT ENCOURAGE SCAMMERS OR FOR PEOPLE TO GOVE MONEY TO SCAMMERS.

Poor and slums
by: Anonymous

You are correct there are hundreds or thousands of scammers that are rich! And yes I see them being arrested online. They are stealing and are filthy rotten rich! No one can possibly condone that. I surely won’t!
But there are some who really are poor and live in slums. They scam to eat. It’s not right! But should they starve because there are no jobs And their government doesn’t give a crap about them what they live or die?

None of us can possibly imagine life like that. I pray we never experience that.

Nigerian Scammers post 31 Dec
by: Anonymous

To the naïve woman [possibly a scammer] who said these scammers are poor, living in slums and unemployed - they need to get into the real world.

Here is a group of "poor" scammers [in link below] caught who had $40Million in cash and the addresses of 2 million victims when caught and who had laundered hundreds of millions of dollars.

https://qz.com/africa/1879261/fbi-use-instagram-to-get-dubai-nigerian-fraudster-hushpuppi/

Poor scammers in slums - yeah right!

The only correct part is they are unemployed, because they don't need a job while they are stealing money from everyone and have $40Million in cash.

To the people who believe that the scammers are poor and living in slums - they deserve to be scammed for being so gullible.

So Many Scammers
by: Elizabeth

I’ve been trolling these scammers for months, and its very easy to spot them - average word scores are in double digits. They read from a script. I play along with them, keeping them occupied so they don’t engage with lonely, vulnerable people.

I told one man, I bought his daughter a Target gift card and he sent me his email address, after he asked me to take a picture of the card. I used a disposable email address and sent him some Bible verses about repenting from his sin and turning to Jesus.

Another man, gave me his street address and I looked it up and it was a mobile home in a trailer park.

Here are the losers I’m playing with now: jorge W. - zJw2656 ; Martin T. - Mtony1585; Peter L. - Peterlucas23; James M - zyngawfuser_43235224; Elliot W - Elliotw513

Take responsibility
by: Anonymous

We all need to take responsibility for our actions and our decisions. No one makes us send gifts cards or money to anyone. We do it if our own choice. If I can’t afford to help someone, I shouldn’t. We all need to take responsibility for what we do or don’t do.

No one forces us to give. Ladies please don’t be coerced into giving what you can’t afford to be without. That is not how love works.

Somebody wrote that they are unemployed and living in slums and that we should "give them a chance". A chance to do what? To inveigle themselves into the hearts of unsuspecting women who believe them when they profess love and adoration?

To try and get money out of someone who maybe doesn't have much herself? Sorry, but I don't think giving them a chance is on the cards!
I feel sorry there are people in this world who don't have much and have a hard time making ends meet. But maybe the one lady who does end up giving them money or cards, or whatever it is they're after, had a hard time making ends meet too!!!

Nigerian Scammers in poverty!!!
by: Anonymous

One scammer, "David Nathan", broke my heart when I finally got him to expose himself as who he truly is. I promised to not turn him into the police. He was my $75,000 scammer - what he asked for, he was given zero. He wasted 4 months of my life at that point in our relationship.

He confessed and wanted friendship. We did WhatApp videos. He still confessed love, he showed me a nasty apartment with no food and begged for my help. He showed me a house where his mom and siblings live. But the truth came out one night when I insisted he take me on a tour of his current apartment.

It was super nice, lots of food, he wore Nike clothes, he has recording music equipment that is very expensive. He played his guitars and sang music along with all of the background music.

He was continuing to scam women and still is. I deleted the App and blocked him after him asking me for money again knowing I had been in Urgent Care and was sick, he turned nasty.

They do NOT care. They want money. Don’t believe they all live in poverty!

In these last months wwf is full of scammers, I have at least 3 or 4 new players, all scammers, every day. But now they are different. I start asking them straight away " where in Africa are you from". And they have no problems at saying they are from Nigeria.

Today a new player has even the photo of a young black guy in a slum. I think that they have realized nobody believes anymore the story of a widowed oil rig engineer, therefore they try with a" half truth". They tell you they are unemployed, have sick parents, in any case they wanna talk on hangouts or whatsapp. But when you don't accept they block you.

Some of these guys are definitely more difficult to figure out than others. After playing Lightning Round, a man started a chat with me that turned into a relationship lasting several months. He was (supposedly) a businessman working from home at the start of the pandemic who said he was bored with the stay-at-home orders and I assumed had more time on his hands for playing games online.

He played Words very well and his grammar and communication skills were excellent. He (supposedly) was a bachelor and his stories about his life were very believable. We had an instant strong connection. We played games and chatted for weeks before he ever asked to text elsewhere as he was then leaving on an essential business trip and didn't want to lose contact with me while gone.

He started calling me dear and babe and was the sweetest, most attentive person. The photos he sent me matched him in video calls. He said he definitely wanted to meet me in the future.

I had just lost a close friend to cancer and I guess was far too vulnerable. He "groomed" me for many weeks before ever having a "financial issue" where he couldn't use his credit card and needed money quickly. I'm a professional woman who just about fell for it all, but I wasn't able to do what he was asking at the time.

We continued talking but there were many red flags after that -- just strange things happening that didn't feel right. Looking back, I believe at times it was someone else in our conversation. He had changed and there were many excuses and lies about everything.

I don't think he wanted to really waste anymore time with me because I didn't easily give in to his request for money.

I still can't believe I was duped like this in a romance scam. Everyone wants to just feel loved and accepted for who they are, and when you are played for a fool like this it's very traumatic. I honestly have no idea who I was talking to for months or where he was from. I feel for anyone who has been through this.

Yes, there are many of these scammers flooding Words these days and trying to jump on the bandwagon. You can pick them out in minutes. But there are also some highly professional trained scammers out there -- and all it takes is a lonely, vulnerable person to fall prey to their dangerous schemes.

Continue to get the word out to others! Now that I'm more aware because of my own experience, I've noticed segments on the news about this and articles in magazines and papers. There are many stories online. The more publicity about it all the better!

His profile picture is a General. His stats are good and he won over 2989 games. His grammar is good. It took him awhile to chat and when he did he said he is not a bad guy. He said he lives alone and I told him I’m married. He played a lot and never chatted that often.

He called me sweetie and baby. He said he loves to play words and I told him it was nice to play with someone who didn’t have an agenda. After that comment he didn’t play as often and finished the game and did not rematch.

I googled images of all army generals and his picture wasn’t there. And a real army general does not call women sweetie and baby. He did not ask the usual personal questions like the other scammers.

He does have his own agenda though.

Yesterday I skydived, went deep sea fishing, made a wedding cake for a friend and cycled 20 miles! No comment back.

They are getting more clever with photos but I’ve noticed a big increase of men’s photos with dogs. "What breed"? I ask. They don’t reply until I’ve asked them three times. A golden retriever is described as a chihuahua!

Scammers
by: Anonymous

There are thousands of these scammers out there. There are groups working to get them disabled but we are finding that they are just popping right back on with same name and emails. Or they change the number at the end of their name by 1-2 digits. They all have the same story. They are getting creative with their pictures but they all almost chat immediately with the same script. They are asking to chat on WhatsApp or hangouts much quicker now.

We have reported so many directly to the game but they do not care. They don’t care that they are impersonating celebrities. Joe Cross, Paul Hollywood, Tony Baroud, Tom Earsting are the ones they use a lot. But the game makers do not care. Report them for fraud, unwanted contact and it will block them automatically. The more people that report them, it gets them disabled quicker.

Do not give your real information out ever, use a different location than where you are from. I never tell them if I am married or not, I tell them it doesn’t have any impact on the game if I am or not. They do not read your comments, they have a script of questions and we have seen the copy of them as well as pictures of them at work.

They are 18-25 year old males from Nigeria. The script is to switch off handlers if you don’t comply to push you to go to other places to chat. The game uses a lot of their data. They call you dear, beautiful, sweetheart because they have so many that they don’t remember the names and when they switch handlers, dear is easier.

If they say alaye, they are asking in Yoruba if you are a scammer basically.

I don't understand how people still believe to them. It is so easy to recognize them. Whenever a male player has a photo on his profile, always men over 50, he starts talking to you straight away, asks TO talk on hangouts, asks questions about your private life while he is always a single parent, an engineer/ surgeon/ in the army.

Now it is up to you not to play or keep talking, but remember he is a scammer so the more you tease him the funnier it is.

Seriously....someone called himself Harry Potter and when I asked him if he knew J.K. Rowling of course he hadn't a clue. Apparently working in the Ukraine high seas but when I mentioned Sea of Azov again didn't know what I was talking about.

Got rid and reported twice.

Then there was Marcusbruce101 - using Paul Hollywood's photo, mentioned him before. Called him out by saying I know what your job is - presenting on TV. Asked him when his next show was on, he said before Christmas. Yeah right, Bake off has only just finished, which I told him. He disappeared.

Reported twice.

Then there was Davideric6811 - claimed to be working as an orthopaedic surgeon in Syria. Don't they all. So easy to catch out. Told me he loved me within about 6 lines, played him along a bit and said I warmed to his picture but I wanted him to come over to see if we were physically compatible. He said we can have a relationship without my husband knowing. They are so full of sh1t.

Now talking to Stewartcartermark - claims to be Austrian but currently living in Texas. Spoke German to him. No reply. Asked him if he spoke German, he said no. So you can't possibly be from Austria then - oh I left when I was young. Yeah right. Still playing this one along. Got to the stage where he wants to chat somewhere else.

I never go that far, call them out, tell them their Mother would be ashamed etc etc. What I don't understand about this one is that when I first played him he had been playing since Jan 2019, so when that is the case I give them the benefit of the doubt, now it appears he joined Sep 7 2020. How can that be??

Ladies, please be careful with these scammers and watch out for elderly family and friends so they don't fall victim to these con men either.

Even if you know enough not to send any money or do any money transfers for these guys, if you engage with them and answer their questions (they are always phishing!) and they have your cell number and/or email address, they can possibly figure out your passwords or security questions and hack into your accounts.

They may also use any intimate or compromising photos you may have sent to blackmail you and ask for money or they will send the pictures to everyone on your social media list.

And they may use your photos to create another profile to scam someone else. Yes, a man can pretend to be a woman online and scam another man! I imagine stealing your identity could become a nightmare.

I have been reading lots of stories online about romance scammers and wouldn't put anything past them what they are capable of. They have no feelings and you are just the next person they happened to come across online to try to scam and make some money. When you call them out after talking for weeks or months, your sweet friend will suddenly spew all kinds of hatred toward you and just move onto the next unsuspecting person. These guys have no conscience.

What an awful way to live your life. I hope they can find some peace in what they do during this blessed holiday season.

I've never played Martin Carson but have played other scammers who were excellent players scoring high numbered words. The reason for their high scores is some of them are using a cheating app called snap assist.

They download the app and take a screen shot of the page and this app gives you a list of high scoring words to use. This is one more trick of these scammers to try and fool us into thinking they are the real deal, when they are not. They are only after money and gift cards and will say or do anything to accomplish this.

Normally they are very low scoring players. Usually scoring 5 to 10 pts per word. Please be aware of this when playing.

Was contacted through chat on Words. After a very short while she wanted to chat on Hangouts. Asked for a photo and sent me one with huge cleavage. Said her name schell. One name I could see was schellM. And her profile picture said Matt schell. At one time she changed her profile picture and it was a man.

She sent more pictures, some naked and one looked too professional. I did reverse Image search and it turned out she was using Tania Banks website. I let her continue until she asked for $100 Steam card so she could send me a video especially for me.

Reported her on Words site for impersonation but could easily be for fraud. The time zone difference didn’t make sense as she was on at times when she would have been in bed in California.

I am afraid you are wrong.

They do work in cels, sharing info between them & also sharing chats between 3 or more of them. They have 'closers' who deal in going in for the final scam. We know this because we have contacts who have told us how it works. `

We have seen the lists & we have seen their faces. You might find your scammer suddenly changes his tone, his language might become worse or his terms of endearment for you change. This is because you are talking to a different man now.

This is also why they like to call you 'dear' - it saves them having to learn a new name for every new scam.

Also I am very, very aware on the horrors of living in Nigeria. I have seen it in videos boys have sent me & it is appalling.

But I would still never steal from a vulnerable person. Ever.

There are lots of names for these scammers, and I believe they use other people’s names and possibly photos. As well as names could we see photos, or is there a site where we can check them out.?


ED: you can post pictures when you start a new submission [but not when you are adding a comment to an existing submission] - use the page below and you can see photos there and you can also post your own story and photos there:

List
by: Anonymous

I don’t believe that there is a list that is shared by scammers. These are mostly young guys just trying to make money to survive or pay for school fees. It’s not some huge syndicated business. What they do is wrong, but some are desperate as there are no jobs there, the government is corrupt and no one cares if they live or die.

What would we do if we had to live like that?

Re: Do these scammers share a list.
by: Anonymous

The short answer is yes, they do have a blacklist of names & profile pictures. Myself & the people I am working with to get these scammers disabled have been listed. We have even seen our old profile photos on pinboards in the background while on videochat under a new player name.

We change player name & picture regularly & open new accounts too. Bear in mind also that the recent youth uprisings in Nigeria mean that there are fewer of them active at the moment too.

Also THEY report US too, resulting in account loss on occasion. Zynga do nothing about this, even though we are, in effect, helping them do their jobs by stopping these scammers. Zynga will not even look into our own account closures.

This & the fact that Scammers can re open an account on the same email address are things that Zynga need to urgently address, to keep innocent players safe :-)

Do these WWF scammers share a list?
by: Anonymous

As other ladies have mentioned and suspected, I believe I managed to get myself on some sort of a list that these scammers must keep and share among themselves that I'm not to be contacted anymore on WWF as I'm onto what they're up to and most likely blocking/reporting them.

I used to get bombarded with requests after playing Lightning Round, but now I see their faces (some in military uniform, etc.) and I don't get any new game requests, or maybe one after playing like ten rounds or so.

I guess the "rats" don't like when we "rat" on them and may somehow know now not to waste their precious time on some of us. Does anyone else know anymore about this?

It's still important to get the word out what these scammers are up to!

Beware of Money Transfers
by: Anonymous

Just another warning! Besides the usual request for money cards and gift cards, beware of transferring money around for these scammers too. Some even promise a little "extra" for your trouble, but transferring money, especially illegally obtained, is money laundering and a felony. If the feds look into things, you will be easily identified with your name and computer/phone identification numbers on the transfer.

Scammers also may make a deposit to your account with a "rubber check" that is not good and will eventually bounce. So it looks like you have money in your account and they immediately want it transferred somewhere else. So you do a Western Union money order or a similar transfer and they withdraw the cash right away.

A few days later you will be notified by the bank that the transfer which went through didn’t have sufficient funds. Your name is on it, you will be responsible for it, and the scammer will have your money and be long gone. There probably won't be any way to contact him either by this time or get anything back.

So please don’t fall for any of this!

He will use you for a year or so and then he will let you go, that means all your money is in his bank account.

How to report even if they have blocked you
by: Cinnamon

Posting this again for reference. This method is the best way to report these idiots.

Did you know that even if your opponent has blocked you, you can still report them?
Reporting, rather than just blocking, is SO important. After a certain amount of reports they get disabled, then they need to open a new account & start all over again. They hate this. It saves others getting scammed & makes a huge difference, so PLEASE REPORT YOUR SCAMMERS!

Here is how to report someone who has blocked you, on a mobile:

1: Click on your photo, then on the settings cog.

2: Scroll right down then click on Manage Block List.

3: Click the 3 horizontal lines in the orange bar, on the right.

4: Click report abuse, in red.

5: From here you can find everyone you have ever played, even if they have blocked you, & report them.

Report them more than once if you can. They are usually guilty of more than one issue - Chat-fraud, Chat - unwanted contact, Chat - impersonation & Photo - impersonation are my regulars.

Also, from the manage Block List page you can see who you have blocked & if they have been Disabled.

It's a great resource :-)

Happy Words with Friends playing - if we work together we can rid this great game of these scumbags.

Thanks for your post and sorry you got sucked in by one of these leeches, for that is what they are. We all need to have a concerted effort to oust these scumbags. I just wish more ladies would think to get on this, or a similar website, to learn about their methods and resist falling for their lies.

All too easy when you're at home feeling vulnerable and kind at heart. I'm continually reporting for abuse, it's disheartening when you see them still online doing their 'thing'. WWF needs to buck its ideas up in banning them completely and to make it easier to report. The system often gets 'stuck' when you try to report - very frustrating.

Trap the "Love Rats"
by: Anonymous

I have noticed over the past few days the requests to start games from these bad actors are decreasing. Thank you ladies for all the work you are putting into this. I'm on a mission too to block and report as many as I come across.

I still struggle daily after my emotional ordeal being involved with a romance scammer and can tell from some of the posts I'm reading that others have been through a lot too. I really feel for all of you. I come here often to read posts and comments and it has helped me get stronger.

These "love rats," as I prefer calling them now, take advantage of our loneliness and vulnerability and good heart, and it is sad how we get sucked into their game of lies and manipulation and have to deal with it all.

I know it all seems foolish to me now, but there's always a first time for everyone. I was busy with my job, family, and home and honestly had never heard of these types of scams. I came to Words with Friends for a little relaxation at the end of my day and unfortunately had my path cross with a real "smooth one" who had learned the trade all too well. They are out there all hoping to come across someone like I was.

Let's continue to fight this problem and look out for each other. Get the word out to others. Thank you so much for your support!

You can get them reported, but they just pop up elsewhere under a different profile. So the only way to really stop them is to stop engaging with them altogether. If their supply of ‘scammees’ dries up, then their business of scamming

This guy (in real life) is a Nigerian actor and producer, done well for himself, has a wife and 3 kids. According to google very happily married. He asked for a game and immediately asked if I'd downloaded his videos on YouTube. I must admit I wondered if it was porn but decided to take a chance. They are actual films (can't remember the names right now).

I looked him up, asked him whether he was born in Lagos and he said yes. Wikipaedia says he was born in Ebo, which I challenged him on. He said his Mum told him he was born in Lagos and brought up there too, not everything on the internet is correct. He says he is split from his wife and has the kids. He can discuss his marriage but not on WWF.

I told him I had no interest discussing his marriage, and that I was surprised he would even think of doing so considering his high profile! He says he viewed me as a friend but no problem. Can we chat outside? Usual stuff. I then challenged him and said I thought he was a scammer. "alright then, no problem. I owe you no explanation or proof and besides I just met you and was too friendly with you. It's OK. Stopped talking and playing now. He sounds quite intelligent with the way he writes and is beating me well (b4 he stopped playing). Could he be the real thing? Has anyone else been challenged by this guy?

Crowned Prince of Dubai

Thank you for this website.

I know there are lots of scammers out there mostly with WWF and I like to toy with them. Exaggerating my family life. Most of them give up but lately I've had the pleasure of conversing with the Crowned Prince of Dubai.

He tells me that he is lonely after being forced into marriage with someone he doesn't love. We've been talking for a week now and he hasn't asked for money or talks of loving me. I guess he is still "building on our friendship" before he tells me such things or asks for money.

I read somewhere that the fake Fazzahs will ask for money for a fake orphanage. I know in my heart and mind that he is a scammer, so what can I ask to throw him off his game?

He is insistent on getting my pictures. Mostly selfies (what do you look like right now?), nothing inappropriate. I've told him that I work in the cyber crimes (which I don't) department of my local law enforcement agency. He wants me to send him pictures of me at work.

Why does he want my pictures? I questioned the picture he sent me. Asking if it is in real time. He said no, it was taken earlier in the day. I can't find his email at the moment but it is something like

I haven’t seen him on WWF since I blocked him.

Just realised I didn’t say anything about Henry Morgan. He says he’s of German parents, Wife died and three children with the eldest named Lisa. he works on oil rig and when I first met him he was in Scotland then he briefly went home to NY then off again to Portsmouth UK.

Both have intimate conversations, that lead to asking you if you've heard of forex trading. Both have polished presentations that promise big returns with low risk.

Sharon then communicates with you via email. Amanda doesn't. Both start off as "quick play" players until I balked at committing to their program without thinking about it more. Then they no longer continue with WWF game. Haven't heard from them again

Be careful on Hangouts for This scammer on scrabble go. He has a picture of Luke Evans as his profile picture and goes under the name of Lukeevansofficial75@gmail.com

He pretends he is Luke, and starts off chatting then says how lovely you are and not like the fake actresses etc and promises you everything and tries to get you to email his management for a come and greet that normally costs you a few thousand pound. Then a bit later says he has a fallout with his management and needs €10000 to get a hotel and plane ticket and when told he was a scammer still tried to convince and says he loves me, and when you don’t fall for it he will block you and disappear.

Please be aware as he sends photos of Luke and will call you on your phone to try to make it look real. He is very good.

From the very start I had a gut feeling that this person was a scammer by first researching WWF scams. I only wish that others would research before getting themselves into a situation that would involve them into being lured giving them gift cards or money. I didn't get that far.

I played along and like many chats, they ask you to hangouts or whatsapp. I said I've never heard of these apps. I texted him, he gave me his phone number. Started texting and yes, messes up your mind with the romantic words which was typical in most chats. When I mentioned he was a scammer, he got defensive.

The picture belonged to Gabriel Wutrich. Did image search on Yandex. Handsome doctor. Well finally, I blocked this player. Needless to say social media is filled with scammers.

Please don't fall for these sweet talking individuals. Pretty creepy.

Very good looking chap, played well.

What’s not to like - EXCEPT that I saw this forum and reverse image searched his picture. I found that his image actually belongs to Dan Pastorini - American footballer and more recently, marketeer at Atlas Settlement Group inc, from where ‘Raymond’ must have stolen the picture.

I called him out and strangely, the game disappeared. Still reported him for Abuse with WWF.

Trouble is, these fraudsters will just invent another profile and be back again within minutes. Very sad, and so sorry for those who get sucked in.

Kenneth Gaulette, NJ. Sex Offender claiming he is a Fed
by: Scam Victim

Beware of Kenneth Gaulette in N.J. who also goes by the name Ken Stavola. He was a Newark Police officer who was arrested for sexual assault years ago and is no longer in law enforcement (google his name for proof).

He is now illegally doing investigations as a Private Investigator. He is also going around saying that he is with the Feds and wearing FBI shirts.

He told me that he owned an investigations company made up of "other Feds like him" and claims to have connections like the governor and former presidents. I hired him based on his false claims, and he did nothing but stole thousands of dollars from me after telling me lies about fake evidence that he made up.

He is also not working with anyone, especially any Feds (FBI or DEA according to him) or any retired law enforcement of any kind.

Stay away from him and warn your friends, he cannot do investigations and is a criminal, scammer and a con man. Everything that he says is a lie. He should be in jail

There is a person who uses the photo(s) of Brazilian actor Bernardo Velasco (I used Google Reverse Image) as his profile pic. I was playing and chatting with him over a week, and he started saying things like he has fallen in love (hallmark of a romance scammer).

Claims he lives in Wisconsin, USA. His stories are very detailed, very well crafted, very unlike the standard scammer stories floating around. His grammar is not that atrocious, and so he managed to have me believe him for a bit.

I pointed out Campbell was retired. He changed tack then and said he was his twin brother! And he was 60 and a Lieutenant General. When I pointed out John Campbell was 63 he said that's right he's an older twin.

New tactics
by: Lee

So it seems now that they are all using snap cheat app. I have had several of them confess that they are using it.

They are getting more aggressive on moving to new platforms (hangouts and WhatsApp, and now telegram).

They are switching the script questions but still are using similar jargon. The dear comments are still there and the grammar is horrible. I have spoken to 7 in the last month on hangouts and all ended up being from the Delta state NG (Nigeria).

Please please please report as abuse rather than just blocking them. If you report as fraud or unwanted contact, they get disabled. There is now a glitch that when they get disabled they can use the same user name. You can also send screenshots to zynga from the game of the conversations and that gets them removed quick.

There are several men they use the pics of regularly and that is picture impersonation as well.

Just today I received 9 new games, all brand new accounts, all the stories. If you see another female on your recommends games that is playing one of these guys, start and game and chat with them, work together to get them disabled. There are groups that are working to do this as well.

The more we stick together, we slow them down. Don’t let them get to an innocent victim. My contact name is in other posts in here if you want to chat elsewhere.. they need to stop!!!!

An "A" for Originality/Creativity!
by: Anonymous

I have found these comments interesting and believe I have also played with the same "George" some of you mentioned. Seemed like a fine young man who said he was from Nigeria and was ashamed of all the scammers coming from his country.

Told me he had a job and we had pleasant conversation for a few weeks. Always very polite and respectful and seemed to be educated with a good command of the English language.

Then one day he said his boss told him he would be losing his job, that times were rough because of the pandemic. I said I was sorry to hear that but he still never asked me for anything.

Then a week or so later the story got worse and he was to be evicted from his house because he couldn't pay the rent and didn't know what he would do. He started asking, begging me for help. Said his uncle had raised some money for him and anything I could give him would be appreciated.

I honestly felt sorry for the guy and thought maybe I should give something. But then I got to thinking that a lot of people are struggling right now and he probably has it better than me if he's pulling this scam with others!

As someone else said, "a real smooth one" who really reels you in with a different approach. Have to give him credit for being original!

Then told me she wanted to be great friends on WWF. Asked me if I was married and had kids. I asked her where she was from and she says shes from South Dakota but lives in Virginia but is currently in Syria.

I asked what are you doing in Syria, she says with U.S. Army. I did not think we had troops in Syria. I asked how long you been there and she says 7 months. I don't respond for a few days then she messages "hello" and I say "howdy" and she says "how are you doing" I say "ok". I ask her how she doing she says, "lonely and bored". I deleted her after that.

Please be careful ladies!
by: Anonymous

I'm ashamed to admit that I was played for a fool too by one of these "romance scammers." Although I can pick them out easily now (their stories are ridiculous!), back at the start of the pandemic when I was homebound and feeling isolated, I began talking to this man on Words and had an immediate connection.

He was intelligent, worldly, and so romantic and charming with all his sweet sayings. I downloaded the Hangouts app to continue our cozy conversations. I was the love of his life who he was going to marry after coming back to the States from an overseas business trip in the Middle East.

One day after several months he told me his credit card account had been frozen and asked if I would do him a favor and transfer money around for him related to his business. I considered it at first but it was complicated and a huge sum of money and something told me it just didn't feel quite right. That's when I searched online and found stories from other women about all these money scams going on.

If I had done it and been caught, it could have been a criminal offense for money laundering, basically being a money mule. I have no idea if it's illegal money related to terrorism or drugs or whatever, but I don't want a felony on my record! He was very annoyed and angry that I wouldn't do it (he said to strengthen the commitment we had) and we didn't talk for awhile.

Gradually we began talking again, but not like before. I never let my guard down and honestly was scared that if I didn't talk with him he would blackmail me out of spite with some deep dark secrets I should have never shared with him or steal my identity with all the personal details he knew about me and make my life a living hell.

He started sending me links to open with songs and other things to share with me, but I would never open them. I don't want malware on my computer or phone! I changed usernames and passwords just to be safe. It's awful what they can do to your life.

Eventually there was another stint where he had a medical emergency and needed immediate money for treatment as he couldn't access his accounts. He pressured me and said he couldn't understand why I wouldn't be there for him when he was sick and needed help.

Believe me, they are trained and are experts at what they do, and scamming you is really all they want.

Looking back there were so many red flags that should have hit me in the head -- going silent on weekends when his internet connection was supposedly bad (was he with his real family?), dropping his phone in water so it didn't work for days, video calls which were all choppy and would freeze up (so I wouldn't easily detect a thick Arabic accent), nothing found on Google when searching for his name, unable to show me his driver's license or passport when asked, etc, etc.

How someone can tell one pathetic lie after another is beyond me. These ruthless men have no morals or ethics.

I wanted to share my experience in the hope I can somehow help other women. If it even helps one woman, it will have been worth it to me. These love connections are addictive and mess with the chemicals in your brain. You are groomed and brainwashed and intimidated and degraded. Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we can do.

I eventually blocked him on Hangouts and ended all contact. I was a little sad at first but got over it. It was never real to begin with.

He then replied I don’t think that really happened did it. He then tried to call me and I said sorry there are sales people at the door I just can’t get rid of them. He then got Annoyed. I didn’t hear from him for the rest of the day but late at night he sent me a few words in Nigerian which I had to look up and it basically meant someone who falls for a scammer and gives money away.

But I think I may have gotten it stopped. I would usually pick up one or more of them playing the lightening round. The last time, and this has been a couple of months ago, I got four of them at once. I played them all (exhausting, but I feel like it keeps them away from more vulnerable players for a while!).

I usually give them a little bit of rope, let them build their story, then start calling them out. ‘You should be Ashamed of yourself", "people are on to you", etc. I told one of the four that I was going to report him. He said HE was going to report ME. But then he quit making plays - ALL of them quit making plays AT THE SAME TIME - and they eventually timed out.

I still play the lightening round, I still do everything I enjoy doing, but I haven’t had one scammer in two months. Could I have gotten on a list in Nigeria?? Whatever, the peace is wonderful. It just breaks my heart that anyone would fall for them.

By the way, I’d read through this post for a while and I see some people offering to help find scammers for them. Maybe I’m just a giant mound of cynicism, but I wouldn’t trust them.

Used fake pictures and clips on hangouts. Never got any money. Called him handsome. Since deleting hangouts I have not seen just sarah on wwf.

Hangouts
by: Lee

So the reason they all want to go to hangouts and WhatsApp is so that it’s hard to report them. They don’t want to talk on the game because they know that it can be monitored and if you report them rather than just blocking them, the chat can be looked at by Zynga.

Also, most use fake pics from celebrities. If you do an image search, you will and can report them for impersonation. The most popular are Joe Cross, Tom Ernsting, Tony Baroudy, and a Russin politician. They use a lot of military pictures and even use the person in the pictures real names. They are getting smarter and using more generic pics now so they are harder to find. Please report abuse rather than just blocking them so we can get them disabled.

Also, be careful on hangouts. I had my account suspended on the game because I was reported for scamming when in reality it was the male asking for gift cards. I had to fight with Zynga and they refuse to reopen my account even though I had screenshots from hangouts.

Also a lot of them are using cheat apps so they will score high points every time.

They are easy to spot like questions are where you playing from, are you married with kids or what is your marital status, what is your favorite color, I would like to know more better about ourself.

They all are from a foreign country, they live in US but work somewhere else. They are military on peacekeeping missions, drilling engineers that include crude, diamonds, gold and other precious metals, and doctors. They have lost wives in tragic circumstances and have young children.

Any Of this is all the script for them. Grammar is always horrendous!! Most of them have played less than a few months because they get disabled so their time is very short.

If you push them on details they refuse to answer because they don’t have the answers because it’s fake.

Please please please use report abuse rather than blocking. When you report them it automatically blocks them as well but a report gets generated. The more people that report them because we all have some of the same players and the more reports that are generated, they get disabled meaning they have to start all over and it slows them down.

Hangouts
by: Anonymous

Yes hangouts and whatsapp. Scammers want you to use these. Being a stupid lady last year I went on hangouts with a scammer. He claimed to be on a ship in the gulf of Mexico on a contract. Then he would retire in a few months go back to his home in Pennsylvania and come to Ohio to meet me.

Of course his wife died of cancer and he had a 14 yr old daughter in school in NC. She would email me also. Of course it was the scammer e mailing. I sent the daughter a couple of gift cards. Finally I wised up and he admitted he was a scammer in Nigeria.

Even sent me his picture on hangouts 33 years old. In a way I was glad because I really did not want a boyfriend. So I was not heartbroken. Would I do it again I don't think so

Hangouts

Do all the scammers use Hangouts? There are oil riggers that claim they caught their wife in bed with the best friend, and they always have a young daughter.

Then there are the orthopedic surgeons who say they work in Yemen. They have teenage sons.

Been talking to this guy for way over six weeks now playing along with him knowing full well he was a scammer (Yes I have too much time on my hands) and yesterday he finally asked me for $150 iTunes gift card. I asked him what it’s for and he said he needs to urgently look something up on Google so I screenshot a few pictures of used gift cards and sent them to him face side up saying I will hand them over to him when we meet in person.

He was then saying baby I need them now it’s important if you really love me you would send them over. So again I screenshot The back of a gift card from Google but the code was kind of blurry and he got mad because he couldn’t read it. So I sent another but this time I cut half of the card off so only half of the code was showing lol.

He’s been calling me and sending me pages of love messages saying please baby send me the codes. Very entertaining

Blocking/reporting
by: Lee

So there are so many of these and we are working to get them disabled as fast as we can. They do read the conversations here as well. If they ask for hangouts or WhatsApp you can report them and all are using other peoples pictures so they can be reported for fraud or impersonation.

They sometimes know who the person is in their pic but a lot don’t. They are getting smarter and trying to appear more normal with their conversations but the grammar is always off due to translation apps.

Rather than just blocking them, go to settings/menu in top right and then report abuse. Choose their name and then report them for several different things. This reports them and then they can get disabled.

They want to use hangouts and WhatsApp because they don’t use their data on those. Don’t use any of your real information for them. Make it up and it’s better to use a fake email and pic. They are hanging out in lightening rounds a lot now.

They will start chat right away, and Standard questions are:
Where you playing from
What do you do for a living
Hows the weather over there
Are you married with kids
What is your favorite color
Do you have pets
Let’s be friends dear
Let’s talk on hangouts so we can know more about yourself.

They fall in love immediately and promise to send you money if you give them money for their data now.

If you need help you can add me and I will help you get them disabled. Myemailforstrangers10095

The more we work together the more we can slow them down and cause them inconvenience. I have had 7 this week admit they are from Nigeria once they realized they were caught.

Robertson German possible scammer
by: Anonymous

First, thank you for all the hard work and this page. I wish I had seen this a year ago. Anyhow, a year ago I was scammed by a man who went by Martin Hank or Martins Hank. He had multiple profiles I had discovered. Anyhow, since our confrontation I had not seen or heard from him on WWFs.

He just vanished which was great! However, I was just playing in the Lightning Round and noticed a very similar picture- Robertson German. I’m not 100% sure it’s the same but the glasses are unique and match the picture I had saved.

Anyhow, I just wanted to give a heads up. The picture has a dark haired little girl which also matches Martin’s original profile as well.

I despise scammers. I just want to play the game and I hate that my trust in people is gone. I now question everything and everyone.

RE: Charles Gary
by: Anonymous

Please have your NAN watch this episode of Mel Robbins. Season 1 Episode E:45- Titled Cat fished Lost over 1 million dollars. If she has a ROKU with the ROKU channel she will be able to watch on there. The whole first season of Mel Robbins is on there.

If not maybe she can find it on YouTube or other streaming channels ! Mel is a life coach and explains all of this very well. Plus has women on there that have been catfished and scammed by these young guys. Most of them are from Nigeria. One lady was scammed out of over 1 million dollars over a 2 year period. You can only imagine her feeling once she realized it had all been a scam. Nan don't let this happen to you!!!

I haven't come across this scammer Charles Gary but Words is full of them. His story is definitely that of a scammer. All of their stories are the same. Either a doctor, military man or a contractor working on a oil rig. Is widowed had a child usually in boarding school. Comes up with sob stories as to why these rich men need your money!!!

Once you send money they will either disappear or keep on charming you to get even more money.

I sure hope your nan see's this for what it really is a scam. This so called man is only after her money and will say anything, copy and paste poems, etc to get it. There is a playbook on the internet that these scammers use. Its called the Nigerian Playbook. When I was being scammed by one everything he was saying to me was in there. Pretty much play by play. I actually sent my scammer a copy of it!

Hope this helps!!!

MATTEO G/Matteosmile

I have been playing in words for the past 7 years. I never knew any of this was going on until a couple of months ago. I accepted a man's request to play. I had no ideal I was dealing with a scammer.

After chatting with him for awhile I began to get suspicious. Then after going to hangouts and him asking me to send gift cards I definitely knew. I would never send money to a stranger like that and told him so.

But he kept trying to convince me he was a 62 year old man looking for and according to him had found his soul mate. These scammers can be very convincing and are apparently trained very well. I just thank the good lord for helping me to realize what he was and I had not sent him any money.

Now that I know Words is full of scammers I have learned to spot them pretty quick. I just hope others don't get taken by these scumbags and learn to spot them. I did report and block him. I've been doing a lot of research on this since it almost happened to me.

Just remember to never send money or gift cards no matter what kind of sob story they give you.

Blocked players
by: Lee

If you just block them, it allows them to keep preying on others. Make sure you are reporting them as impersonation, fraud, threat chat. This way they get disabled from the game and yes they can start new profiles but it slows them down.

Signs of scammers - pictures are almost always of single men. A lot use professional men that post a lot of pictures. You can use image search to show the real person. Their grammar is horrible!

They have the list of questions..where you playing from, hows the weather over there, are you married with children, what’s your favorite color, where are you originally from, favorite food or vacation. These are all questions that a lot of security questions use on websites and most people will give out the answers without thinking.

Best suggestion is to create a generic gmail not using your real name. Give fake job, location, never give out real information.

If you go to hangouts, use the generic email and fake info. Never send pictures to them and never ever send iTunes or gift cards. Make sure you log out of hangouts regularly.

They are getting better at it and they are being more patient with the conversations. They are also lurking in the lightening rounds more too.

The more we work together on this, the more we can help prevent them preying on weaker people that may not realize these things exist.

Been talking to this man for well over a month. He started the game on words with friends And I knew instantly he was a scammer but I thought I would play along. He stopped playing once he got me on Hangouts (I created a fake account).

He says he is using his dads account and his name is Sean Morgan on hangouts. Bear in mind his words with friends picture was an almost 60-year-old man so his dad must be knocking 90 and have Google hangouts really??

I told him I’m deeply in love with him but he says he’s busy working away for at least another month. Still waiting for him to ask for any money. This is what he just sent me

I have no other words to describe the way you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close. I believe that Ronald Regan said it best to Nancy in a letter, telling her only that, "I more than love you". Their love was a strong love, surviving everything, even death. I believe that even after his passing, Nancy felt Ronald's love for her raining down upon her. That is why she has always seemed at peace after the death of such a truly loving husband. That is the love that I feel for you.Kindly take care for me and have a pleasant day with kisses and hope we chat tonigh

His response to that was so where are you from? I told him that no place in particular since we had to keep one step away from the law. He said something about being an independent contractor and how he was interested in me. At that point I said this conversation is getting kind of weird I am going to end the game.

'They're Men.......'
by: Cinnamon

No, they are not all men. A friend of mine was taken for several thousand pounds by a very alluring lady who turned out to be a female scammer.

They are mostly male though, as they know that women are more sympathetic & THINK that we are easily manipulated by a sob story & a great looking face.

The reason they try & blame you is so that you feel bad & guilty & sympathise with them. They then have the upper hand & manipulate the situation for further sympathy, which is usually when the dying child/school fees/dog with cancer story pops up.

I now run a Facebook group with a handful of members & we are comparing notes, swapping experiences & working together to tag team these people & get them disabled, with great results.
Some members have first hand experience of being taken by these guys - we are a judgement free group :-)

The devil is in the detail.
by: Cinnamon

These guys are lazy, greedy & stupid. And that is a bad combination of things to be.

My friend MapTokyo said to me that the Devil is in the detail - point in case:

My latest scammer is using a picture of a guy in Army fatigues, his name clearly on his chest & the word 'Ranger' on his arm. He is standing in front of a Ranger logo banner too.

My scammer has called himself by this gentleman's real name, so it matches the name on the jacket, but tells he he is in special ops.

I ask him is he used to be a Ranger, as it says so on his jacket. This surprises him, REALLY surprises him & he says yes, he was a Ranger between 1986 & 1987.

The guy in the picture is around 50, so this would make my scammer 84!

I have yet to challenge him about this, but am looking forward to hearing how many children he has, how his wife died & how hard his job is on his poor old knees :-)

I will be contacting the poor man whose identity has been abused by this con artist also.

re This & that.
by: Cinnamon

One of my favourite ruses with the guys who have lived in Sweden (or wherever) is to send them a looong & complicated message using Google Translate in a language close to the one they claim to be native of, so Norwegian for instance.
They copy & paste it in to Google translate where it automatically detects the language used, but (and it's a big but!) they don't bother checking & knock out a response in English which auto translates to the language you used.

So, he says he is Swedish, but he understands & is responding in perfect Norwegian.

I had one say that they do actually speak 'Icelandish' in Poland......

This and that
by: Maptokyo

The blue asterisk means that team was short a player and WWF added a computer generated player. They always suck and funny enough they are always or almost always a scammer pic.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck... it is a scammer. When was the last time anyone here heard of ANYONE killed in a gas explosion? A house fire? A plane crash? I am 57, in the past decade I have lost 3 friends around my age to cancer. Women just do not die at this pace!

I never knew anyone who died in childbirth. I never met anyone whose baby died in childbirth. Stillborns sadly yes, but the crap they come up with. It truly shows how disposable we are in their minds. Several posts down there was a post about a Danish man who moved for a week to Cleveland and then immediately went to the rig in the Gulf. Mid game he was disabled. We were chatting in google translate danish, a day later SAME EXACT INTRO, this guy cannot be bothered with google translate. Doesn’t understand good day etc. I said you aren’t really Danish. Yes I am. My parents died in a fire when I was 5 and my uncle wouldn’t take me so I was placed in an orphanage.

Still doesn’t explain why you cannot understand basic Danish. Oh the orphanage sent me to St. Stephens Episcopalian boarding school in Dallas Tx. Still doesn’t explain why you cannot understand.

His wife died 3 years ago giving birth, so did the baby but saints be praised he has lovely 13 year old Linda, in boarding school in Denmark where he has a mansion. Evidently hers was the only school in Denmark to not close for Covid. His name was Ford and he is disabled. He will be back though.

They are all scammers. Work from there and you won’t be duped. If you are looking to meet a man on WWF, look for years of playing. Look for sustainable social media.

Never give anyone a $.

Think im being scammed
by: Anonymous

Yes he fits all the scammers criteria. If they ask you to leave words and go to hangouts or whatsapp you can be 100% sure he is going to ask you for gift cards or money. Best thing to do is to report and block them.

They are all over words. All unusually have the same story. Some kind of engineer, doctor etc. All are widowed and have a son or daughter in boarding school. You will learn to spot them very easy. Under no circumstances send them gift cards or money. They all usually work on oil rigs and will have a sad story why they need the money.

They are very good at what they do and can be very convincing. Don't be fooled by them. Keep your guard up. Also they will tell you they are in love and want to marry you.

Beware!!!

Impersonating a military man. The best part of this whole scheme is that this person who he impersonated is a judge in the city that I live outside of the suburbs. I recognized him immediately as he had one of those little blurbs at Christmas while he was serving in Afghanistan giving a shout out to his family. He also presided over my daughters adoption.

Didn’t chew him out but did recommend that he look up this man and use him as a role model to improve his life and to strive to be the best he can be of a man.

Hi TomFan,

Firstly, you are not alone in being drawn in by one of these guts. They are professional confidence tricksters and are good at what they do, mostly. You have not been stupid, or gullible - you have been a victim of a professional.

You say that you know he is not who he claims he is? Why is that - what has aroused your suspicions?

In all likeliness he is a scammer & he is being paid to keep you engaged, hence the long encounters. They get extra money for info like phone numbers & email addresses.

Can you share his user name, so we can see if anyone has encountered him before? If you would rather contact me via the game then start a game with me & we can chat - CinnamonSands

I imagine they are like the monsters in Monsters Inc. promptly at 10:30 my time I get 6-8 new games. Two will block me and vanish before midnight. Another one or two will play a word and then vanish for 12-18 hours. The remainder will follow the script and I try and outlast them for the win.

Says he is Spanish by birth when I asked why his English is so bad (and it is terrible, even for these guys!). I asked where he lived in Spain & he gave me the name of an Italian town. I told him he was mistaken & he told me he couldn't remember the name of the town he was born in & lived in for 36 years. Now speaking to him in Spanish. He has gone strangely quiet apart from posting, in English, that he loves me.

Daviswilson681
Similar - says he lived in Poland for 40 years, but can't speak a word of the language. Gets very angry if you question him about it. It is like poking a bear.

Johnsonmalcom346
Profile pic is him in front of the Russian national library. Says he travels to Rushia often!

Weird, creepy questions & profile picture. I think he was calling himself Miller - says it is a classic American name. But he has spelt it Milla.

Yes, I am playing Steve Jobs. I don't think it is the real one, but you never know! Pushing for Whatsapp.....hard.

Vile little guy. Using a photo of Brian Newman. Called me revolting racist names when I said I didn't think he was who he thought he was. Still says it is his picture, but that all whites must die because they treat blacks 'like sheet'. Reported multiple times, with screenshots.

I had contact with "Ben Piccio" from December until February 2019. Yes, he had a grandson Carson back then too. He is a SCAMMER. He wanted to protect me as I was being stalked by an ex-boyfriend, he wanted me to move to California and marry me. Actually he wanted money from me. He was on a RIG, just like many of the scammers. He did a video call with me but the camera was so far away that you could not clearly see his features. We talked back and forth for a while.

He used the same photo that "Wayne Anderson" used, he was a scammer also. Beware... Report Ben Piccio as a photo impersonation and block him. Good luck.

2 letter words
by: Cinnamon

For the person who asked why a lot of them play just simple 2 letter words. Well these guys have dreadful English for a start. A lot of them claim to have jobs that require degrees, but can barely string a sentence together.

They are playing a LOT of women at once, so use quick moves to simplify things. Sometimes they will send you a message meant for someone else by mistake, sometimes in their native language too - this happened to me last week.

So they play these simple words because it is convenient for them, it keeps the game with their victim going & it is what they can understand. The real idiots IMHO are the ones who are obviously using a cheating app to 'win' therefore making us want to play them again to beat them, when they can hardly even spell in their messages to us.

Some do this because they cannot bear to lose to a woman - had one tell me that once.

Sent me his email address - username @gmail.com

I left it a day. He got very anxious that he hadn't received my card yet. So I rigged up a new email address & sent him a birthday card. Yes it had a cat on it, & a fish.

He says how can he use it on itunes. Well, I say, it is a birthday card, so you can't. He starts saying I don't love him (true) & can I now send a £50 itunes card.

Beware of this Username Militaryplatform103@gmail.com
by: Lor

Red flag scammer who plays on WWF. His username on the game is Militaryplatform103@gmail.com, He is so smart on that word app. The name he told me was Sgt. Gerald Rodriguez without knowing he was looking for a catfish. He will chat at you and wants to move to Hangout. He said he is in the military and deployed in Syria. I had a quick video call with him as he said he was on a duty post and got caught. Lol.

He makes you feel in love with his words and then later on he went on a mission and they won and only few of them survived. Then he told me there are Millions and gold bars they found where they had their mission and said the military officers decided to share the money and the gold bars with the survivors and luckily he was one of those survivors.

Then telling me he will send his share to me as he doesn't have any family now except his 6 years old Son name Alex at home care, Texas. He said he sent his 2.1 Millions and the gold to me and even showed me in the video call just to show me that it is real and i know what’s in it when it arrives to me.

And that was Rev. father who showed me and mailed it to us as he said he was the only one who can go out of the camp as he was also injured from the mission. Then a day after I got mail from a private courier saying it will be in transit, and then got put on hold at the Dubai international airport for customs tax.

Then telling me there is customs tax because of what they’ve found inside the suitcase and the charged was $58k and I need to pay it urgently or they will sue him for laundering money and for not declaring what’s inside of the suitcase. I was like worrying about it as i love him. But the other side of my mind is like saying something fishy about it, and that Sgt.Gerald trying to push me to do anything and so he said that’s our future money and we can’t afford to lose that money inside. He was pushing me to find a way or get a loan and etc. And I am glad God gives me wisdom or else I will be in trouble and in debt.

He no longer talked to me after I refused him and that I can’t help him for that. Whatever love he said to me faded away so quick. Lol

This week I have had a good few accounts deleted after I have reported them, which is a VERY good thing. A few of my ongoing games, & those still to be removed are:

ItzG141 - Uses a picture of the model Brian Newman, & sends long, long, looooooong 'romantic' messages about Karma & spirit. One message took 6 screenshots to get it all in. I have told him I have Whatsapped him & the fact he has not got my message is driving him mad. I have not Whatsapped him.

Jameseugene191 - Another copy & paste smooth talker.

Wellington B - I have told him that Wellington is a very unusual name for a non African man. He says he is NOT African. He is.....

Eghivwekesh - Declared instant love within 3 minutes of chat. Ridiculous.

Pamssteve - Says his name is Steve Pam. Ignored me when I asked about the extra S in his name. Restarted the game 12 times after our game ended & I kept declining them. Very upset with me.

Jacksonsmith102 - Says he is from Iceland, so speaking to him in Norweigian. Responded to the Norwegian in perfect Norwegian but says he was speaking in 'icelandish!'

Williamphilip08081 - A cheat, who happily admits to cheating. Very basic English, but plays long, complicated words.

Am in love with jehovah - Couldn't resist with a name like that. He found me on Lightning rounds & opened by saying how much the words I played impressed him. But he was on the other team.

Brownscott354 - Another Lightning Round guy. He scored under 20 in that game but charged in with 3 Bingos straight off in our game. Called him out for cheating which he denied - asked me to get Hangouts so he could prove he wasn't a WWF cheat. Nope.

Go to Yandex images and look for the camera upper right hand corner inside the yellow search box. Click on that and then hit images. Screen shot the guy from WWF. Upload his picture here- and wala- you will generally see many "looks like" fraud photos.

So for instance - Luis (ls7448778) has a picture of a guy pointing to a book. Dummy Luis doesn’t realize that this is a picture of David Arvin the author of the book in the picture . It’s hilarious- he told me he had to use a different user name to disguise himself 😂😂 let me know if this works for you.

Google Yandex and when their page loads there is an empty bar field with a camera icon in the right corner. Click on it. It will ask you to upload a photo. Have it already in your library. It may ask you to crop. Hit submit and it will search.

I came back here just now to report I had to Yandex myself. A non scammer friend player asked if I had a second account. He saw an account with my picture on it. I found it, zyngawf_11032455 if you are curious. It is my Facebook profile pic and the pic that is on my google account.

I very briefly went onto hangouts to see what the fuss was about and one of our friends copied my picture. I challenged myself, however I haven’t played in a while. I sent copies to support so hopefully I will not be on there long. Another good reason to never go to hangouts. I came back negative on Yandex btw.

Same old
by: Maptokyo

Hi Ladies, I have to add the third word they always say. Really. When I won’t go to hangouts because I don’t have the app, Really. When I won’t share my phone number with a stranger, Really. Now, when they tell me a whopper I write in three separate messages. Really. Wow. Okay.

They don’t get it but it makes me chuckle. I have had good luck getting a lot disabled lately. I screenshoot their profile. I reverse search their photo, and I screen shoot some chat. The usual drivel, and I access help on my profile page and if you click through contact us enough you can upload pics. I always thank them for their time. I try to be clever or funny. I have had about a 50% success rate. I send 2-3 at a time, I don’t bother if I cannot prove they are a scammer.

Strangely my hate speech guy is still up. I included him in my last batch. If you want some fun hit up KarlHarmann122 wife died, check. 12 year old son, said he was 65 when I said you are too old for me, his age dropped to 60, he was typing without glasses. The questions were out of a Cosmopolitian quiz. Do you believe in a soul mate. Would you relocate. Do I smoke. Fav movie, food, color.

Have fun and report him please.

Cinnamon - I get what you're saying about OKAY. It's the same with WOW. Doesn't matter what you put, it's WOW. Once when asked how I was I said "well, I fell over and broke my arm" and the reply, "WOW. Good, OKAY" They don't even read your reply half the time!! Idiots.

The last one I got I did a reverse image on Yandex as suggested by another lady earlier. My goodness this chap gets around!!! Frankadam480011.

Asked me eventually where I was playing from. I replied Nigeria. He disappeared funnily enough!!
I've replied all sorts of places - Kathmandhu one of the latest. Said I was up a mountain building a school for a charity. He said "you must get good pay for doing that". I replied "board and lodging" and that perhaps he would like to donate something as he had such a good job as engineer on a rig.

He disappeared too. They are such vile scum.

I have noticed how they are starting to put emojis in their names, I am guessing they think it makes it harder for people to share info on them, or to look them up & block them. I have had rainbows, kisses, flowers & rather alarmingly a first just this week!

And why, WHY do they over use the phrase Okay, always spelling it like that, never just OK as we would.

It's like, I am from Berlin but live in Illinois Okay.. never a question mark after it either.

Makes me laugh - it always makes them sound a little angry. And a lot stupid.

These are the newest ones from the last week. There have been several more but they resigned or disappear so I don’t have their names but it’s all the same story. Widow or divorced with a child and working out of the country.

Where you playing from, hows the weather over there, what do you do for work, are you married with kids, can I have your gmail to talk on hangouts because I am not here often, do you have a pet, what is it’s name, favorite color, favorite food, favorite vacation.

All of these are questions for security questions so don’t answer them with real info. Make it up.

I love messing with them, I wait for them to give me their locations and then I am from the same area. I change my job, sometimes I am disabled or unemployed.

Some days I am an adult entertainer, or a dancer or a teacher or whatever random job I choose. They get bored and resign. I never ever give out my real information, location, where I shop, any real information at all.

Words with friends Grey Aisley, has one girl, widow. Contractor as engineer in Virginia. He is so full of it. Had no idea what yesterday was,(4th of July), he said he did nothing. I said, oh really, friends, or hanging with family? He said no, just walk my dog. I said how is your dog, any thing they dont like? He said oh our walk was okay.

I even mentioned slightly, yes, we met up with family, and there were a lot of fireworks. He said, oh really? I said, yes, just a few. Oh, he was so full of crap. He also states he is in Virginia, so i told him to pick up a newspaper with today date and take a picture. He kept asking me why, I told him to prove who he is.

He said I don't lie, so I told him then prove it. He got mad, and has not texted me.

Re: Learning the hard way

Dear Anonymous, I am truly sorry that you have been victim to these evil men. I hope he didn't cause you too much hardship. Yes, this is how some of them work. They get you on another platform, ask for photos then say they are going to tell your Husband that you have been cheating. They WANT women in happy relationships!

So, don't give them photos (I had a guy last week say to me 'go on Hangouts, I promise not to ask for nude photos of you'). They want to see your face in them, as well as some flesh preferably.
They also need your Husband or partners details, so don't give them those either.

Don't go on Facebook with them or Messenger, as it links to your Facebook profile. Your partner may be in your friends list.

I hope you have reported him so that Zynga can disable his account?

I have had plenty of complaints about how WWF "allows" scammers to flourish. Tonight while watching a movie I reported over and over the nine from today and another six who vanished, I.e blocked me, which annoys me no end. I was down to last tile with 2 of them.

Then I reported about 20 more from my list so, close to 40! What if a 1000 players did that? They would need an army to investigate, most women block, and think that is good enough so, I over report. Perhaps the staff is overwhelmed?

Firstly Jan if you had reported him it automatically blocks them, so you wouldn't see if he was online again. So it might be a different player.

If you go to your Unblock list you will see that some of the people you have blocked are shown as 'disabled' which means they are shut down. It might sometimes take a while, but they are pretty good at closing the accounts down.

This doesn't stop them from making a new Catfish account of course, but Zynga do act, & pretty quickly at the moment. Which is why it is so important to report them, more than once if you can.

Which made me really never tell him. Called me a bitch, blah blah.

Name, John Billy 892 profile says from Canada. He introduces himself as Wilson. I ask him which pic he is. Old shirtless guy. I ask him who John Billy is. No reply.

My only crime was to say thank you for the game, I don’t have hangouts or WhatsApp, good luck.

There was a F bomb or two in there. I sent it as an email and written in app. Rhea, promised me they were looking into it. I then found the yandex reverse search and contacted the pic owner on twitter but I am 99% sure he is a scammer and the pic is stolen another layer deep.

If anyone wants to challenge him and then report for stolen pic maybe Wwf will disable him. They toss poor Stave Lee, who didn’t have a chance of getting anywhere but threatening me gets a pass. Not that it was a serious threat but it shook me. Have fun!

I asked again and said you have a stethoscope around your neck (he probably didn’t see that when he cut and pasted picture) so what kind are you? His reply" I'm a doctor who is specialist in surgical oncology and delivery of babies "

Yeah, right-Lol. But the best part is he plays only 2 letter words. Pretty smart Dr.😂😂. How does he have a badge of 17 and he only won 109 games?

Then, amazingly, they’re the ones that then ask you for a game. Ok, so just reported Dave - Alperdave8 who claims to live in Liverpool but his English of course is rubbish. I think he was the Surgeon working in Somalia (seems to be a new trend).

Then Osborn G - Osborngeorge36. Never got as far as asking or telling me what he did. Wanted to go to hangouts or WhatsApp (as they all do).

Next was Greg S. - dominicemmanuelfunding. This is a new one on me. Called him out but he came back with "please can you call 1-888-882-3837 this number for me. Tiaabank call them or go to their website open an account with them and let me know when you are done. There is a surprise for you to see you just class an follow the instructions." Yeah right. He got reported for abuse. Watch out ladies!!!

A step further
by: Maptokyo

Instead of blocking scammers, try and go a step further and report them. WWF makes it easy IF You are currently playing them. From their profile page click the upper right icon gear wheel and there is a report option. I have read in here, you need to change the clock to your time. You can report them several times by toggling back and forth.

If they block you and you are like me, you go the extra mile to get them kicked off.

Click on your picture. Takes you to several options. Go to your block list, then click on report. They don’t make it easy, but once you get there every single player you have ever played is there, put on Netflix and start reporting.

Beware of these men, they came across lovely and I was unaware of the huge issue with WWF so had a soft spot for each and yes stupid enough to talk outside of WWF. All worked on oil rigs and of course lost their partners, looking for love.

Couldn't skype as too dangerous being on a rig, so I asked for a photo with a flower in one hand, a toothbrush in the other ha ha. Yes I know this is a weird shot and purposely made it so, as be unlikely to find on a gallery or with the real person they pretended to be - they all got abusive.

This was of course after a few red flags and I asked for them to prove themselves. One did send a poor photoshop version with a small head attached to it so at this point I reported them as abusers on WWF and emailed WWF too.

I am here to help warn others as feel a lack of support with WWF as seems after research this problem has been ongoing for years and predators are still roaming freely and we need to look out for each other :O

Playing WWF and playing a really good game of Scrabble with this guy. Very basic conversation, nothing to be wary about. Conversation came around to what I thought about WWF and I said "lots of scammers". He asked how I could tell. So I said, mostly they do not have a very good grasp of English and their grammar isn’t either. They evade questions.

Start with the dear and honey blah blah blah and then ask for $. Got caught once and now belong to a Scammers group on Facebook. Hahahaha... I really did not think this one was a scammer. He disappeared quicker than a blink! Hahaha!

I agree with the last comments about the way these scammers disappear - no doubt to find another identity. I prefer to report and block first so very annoying! One yesterday started a chat and I said I'd rather just play the game. He said ok then where are you playing from!!

One even said if I didn’t chat he would end the game. I said ok then blocked him!

Very bored with the same old chat! Played with 2 males, good games, no chat, how it should be!

I didn't think I would get a worse one than Stave Lee, but today has given me the gift of Lawrancesteven634. He is a joy. He says his first language is English, even though he gets no & know mixed up, among other mistakes. Now he tells me he is actually from a country called Nedderland.

Yep, he is thinking of The Netherlands I believe.
I have asked if he is actually from The Nether Regions. Am waiting to hear back. I suspect he will say he is :-)

He also asked me the time by saying 'what say your times known'.

At least I think that is what he was asking!

Playing them at their own game

I've had a break from the tedious boring questions that these scammers ask...yawn. but I kind of missed the fun so have just taken a couple back on. The first one asked what was the weather like - usual stuff. Before I knew what I was doing I told him it was snowing.

Then I had to think about where it would be snowing so I said Kathmandu when he asked where I lived. ?actually checked it after and it was 26 deg and sunny! Lol.

So I said I was a missionary building a school up the mountain. He said that sounds like a well paid job! For a supervisor engineer he was, you might say, pretty thick. Then I said he had such a good job we were always looking for sponsors. Strangely enough I've been waiting for his return play!!

Ladies/gentlemen. Watch out for this one. She started a challenge yesterday and also plays with a male I’m playing with in the UK. I accepted the chat message thinking what harm can this do. She said she is a teacher in Alabama and asked if we could be friends.

Her grammar is off for a teacher. She asked if I’m married and what I do for a living. She also asked me if I know the man we are both playing with. I told her I didn’t know too much about him as we only play wwf. I compared notes with him and she asked him a lot of personal information and told him she could be the love of his life and wanted to be in a relationship with him.

I’m getting sick and tired of these scammers. All I want to do is play the game. I don’t mind chatting if it’s about the game or current events or sports etc.

LarryAntonio2020
by: LRF

This is one of so many scammers I've run across in WWF. They find us in lightening rounds, which makes me so mad because they drag down your team's score, and the lightening rounds scores count in your overall score. If you click on the team members after a game you'll see who collected how many points. I have shown my husband these scores and told him who I'll get game requests from based on their profile picture and score. Some of them get NO points. They're busy collecting our names.

Larryantonio2020 is the typical petroleum engineer, single parent, from Texas but working on an oil rig in the Persian gulf. A very common scenario. Within three messages he knew we had a very strong connection. I admit to toying with these guys, and never take it any farther than the WWF chat. I also never give them any true facts. Will I do give them one: I tell them all that I'm happily married.

I feel sorry for the women here who have been taken by these guys but I don't understand it. To me they're so obvious. I wish I could hug you all.

Bottom line, when they ask you for emails, Bitcoin, photos or money is time to end it. But do it by calling them out and telling them they're reported, because your score is affected if you're the one who quits the game!!

I do have one concern. Is there any one who has had this activity affect them without having connected with them outside of the game? Can they get IP addresses, etc?

Stavelee

I somehow ended up with Stave next. Mother is still from Israel, but father is from Texas now. he wanted to know what my habits were such as did I smoke, drink, flirt and party all the time. Told him due to my jobs security clearance, I wasn't answering any of those questions.

He only wanted to make sure of what we actually want, etc, the whole paragraph was cut and paste, another fun scammer, who does not like questions being asked of him is Geo.rg J

Says he is a ship captain, the pic is of a 20 something, found on yandex. He is currently in Germany for a seminar, when I questioned how during a world wide lock down he managed to travel to Germany, and what company insisted on employees traveling but he said enough questions.

I was cool with that, if he didn't like answering, then he would certainly understand that I wouldn't answer anymore either. He is dragging the game out by days and single letter plays, but I am on track for a new high score. so Geo. rg isn't going away yet.

WWF experience
by: Anonymous

I've had at least six people challenge me to a game on Words With Friends who sound like they're using the same script. They start with hello how are you and share their sad story of how they work on an oil rig in some capacity and are divorced or widowed with a small child, and eventually get to compliments and request to chat other apps which I have refused but they persist.

At that point I stopped responding. Telling them that I am a great grandmother didn't make any difference to them. The first time this happened the guy eventually tried to sell me Bitcoins. After that I was wise to them and it never got past the request to chat on other apps. At that point I muted chat on their game.

What I am curious to know is how when I stopped communicating, the game disappeared from my list even though we haven't finished it. It's just gone.

This one is very charming. The profile picture is of a nice looking man in his 40’s wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap. Said he was born in Poland and moved to the states when he was 22. He even spoke a few words in Polish.

I know Polish and the words he used were Polish. In the past I blocked 2 players who knew I was in Poland a few months ago. I am wondering if he is one of them. Said he is working on an oil rig near Scotland. Said he cared for me on the first day. He wanted to go to Whattsap so he could send me photos. I don’t have Whattsap.

I saw 2 red flags. He apologized for not responding to my chat message because he said he slept off. Polish people do not use that phrase but Nigerians do. He always was playing when I do throughput the day because I saw the green dot.

The second red flag was when he told me he had a dangerous risky job on the rig. On the 5th day he called me babe and told me he really cared for me. Yesterday we finished a challenge and when I clicked on rematch it told me I was playing the maximum games and a new challenge could not be created.

But his name was Scott Moore and when I called him out, he wanted to tell me the truth and his name really was Scott Morre. He had a 13 year old son and wife died of lung cancer 4 years ago.

I started using reverse image app and he’s stolen the pic from Jon Ochs. And the pic of his kid is Jon Ochs kid.

So, now in ‘truth’ he worked for KLM Deutsch. Before he said he was in the Gulf.

Was always asking the time so one time I asked him. It was 5 hours difference which would put him somewhere between Alaska and Hawaii in the Pacific.

Now he’s dying and sick because I won’t talk to him. A friend of his (says his boss is Scott), sent me messages telling me all this. I looked up his name on Facebook and has ‘scammer’ messages on it.

He asked if I was on a dating site he could chat to me on and again I said No!

What I only realised after blocking him was that he played a 9 letter word?? Again later in the day a request to play and a 9 letter word was put down. I immediately blocked and reported it.

Uptick etc
by: Maptokyo

I have noticed an uptick in scammers with no pics - 3 today. Pics of dogs. Several which makes reporting them impossible. Begging to go on hangouts isn’t a TOS violation. I have begun to send my top scammers into the help chat. They wrote back and strongly suggested I use the in app method. I wrote back that it is not working, I have reported one over 200 times, that scrolling to find a name, then changing the time to my zone, evidently this is necessary, then finding the appropriate violation, then having to add which game even though there is only one choice.

Lastly hitting enter can take 10-15 seconds to get through. That I would continue to write them as long as they were playing. I give details, pic on yandex, who the pic is of, I reminded them that impersonating military is a felony and by being made aware of such impersonators and not removing they are aiding and abetting.

Ladies don’t fall for any chat Rooms and make sure you don’t go on lightning round! That’s where they lurk. Married ladies they try to lure you into a chat room, they copy chats, pics anything they can use against you, ask you to accept their Facebook request and within seconds they are copied and sent friend request to anyone tagged In your pics including husband, and on your friends list, so this is how they blackmail you.

If single they threaten to put your pics out for public display, remember they can put all your info that you let them in on and business, they can also get into your phone and bill pay! I played one guy one time and thought to myself Dam he’s so ugly he couldn’t be a scammer, to be friendly back after a few games and he was sending messages. I answered one back and I'll be dammed if he didn’t find me on Facebook, send my husband a Message about a few words we’d spoke and threatened him to tell everyone that his wife was chatting with a strange man online, so this is how they work.

Then she asks if I'll "meet" him. I said i'd play wwf if he started up a game but i'm not interested in a relationship and i don't make online friends. Just play and chat.

Then HE starts up a game and goes right to the whole relationship crap and tries to get me to give personal information - phone #, email. What a joke!

I too have had some admit they're scammers, I've tried to get them (stupidly) to see the error of their ways and some even say yes, I'm going to stop, but can you send me some money to start up my business!

I've started to say I'm retired fraud squad, dealing with internet scammers. Still some of them hang in there!!

Playing with "Fredandergroup" at the moment, plays a fair game, coming out with some schmultzy good morning messages but he doesnt have a 'nicked' photo and isn't asking the usual questions so the jury is out on him at the moment!

Anybody else played with this guy? Also says he's been playing since March 2019 which is not usual for a scammer.

New scammer tactic: Admitting they're scammers right away.
by: Anonymous

I've had 3 obvious scammers start conversations with me recently (well, more than that, but here's what these 3 have done). After just a few minutes of casual chat, they ask if I could keep a secret or if they could trust me. Then they ADMIT that they're scammers.

They say they feel horrible for what they're doing, that they haven't eaten in 3 days, their mom is sick, they are trying to finish school to get out of Nigeria but they can't pay the tuition, etc etc etc.

Obviously they're trying to pull at my heartstrings so that I would WANT to send them money, but it's still a scam because there's no way to verify their story. They just want to get you to WANT to send them money. That's it. They don't care about anything else.

So PLEASE keep this in mind if you encounter one of these "honest" scammers.

I’m quite sure this one is a scammer working with another scammer/scammers. The profile picture is a nice looking gentleman in his 60’s. He didn’t chat until the 3rd day. In some chats the grammar and spelling is good and in other chat messages the grammar and spelling are very bad. He didn’t ask to go on hangouts. Said his wife died 10 years ago. No children.

He said he was still very depressed and very lonely. He asked me how old I am and when my birthday is. I gave him wrong information. He didn’t ask the usual?? If I’m married with kids, and what my occupation is.

Scott Moore
by: Anonymous

Scott Moore. Widowed 4 years, wife died of lung cancer, son Stefano. Works on an oil rig, in the Gulf of Mexico, as a contractor but seems to be available all hours of a day. Caught him in a lie. Kept asking me what time it was ‘over there’.

I finally asked him what time it was where he was. It was 5 hours earlier than my time. This would put him in the Pacific Ocean somewhere between Hawaii and Alaska.

I searched high and low trying to find if he was real. Nothing.

Email ScottStefano74@gmail.com

Met him playing Words with Friends, unaware of this scammer crap. His son’s birthday was coming up and he dropped his phone. Stuck on the rig. Help as my son will be so disappointed! I got caught up in it emotionally and did send $50. Was chastised as he needed $50 more as his son lost his activation for video games. I have changed every password and my email address as I realize what a freaking fool I am.

This is his Facebook page:

Adamsraw7
by: Anonymous

Beware of Adam Raw on WWF. He took me in hook, line, and sinker, right up until he asked me to loan him $52,000 for parts needed to fix the oil rig he works on. Adam says he lives in Miami but was raised in Norway. He had a gorgeous profile picture, which turns out to be hacked from the facebook page of a model named Michael Walter.

He says he is divorced - caught his wife cheating with his best friend. He says he has a 20-year old son named Leo. Adam says he is a marine engineer who works as a contractor on an oil rig in Norway several months a year. He asked me to set up a Hangouts account so we could chat and exchange photos.

On Hangouts, he asked me a lot of questions about myself, such as what I believed I had to offer in a relationship, what was my idea of a romantic date, what lessons I had learned from previous relationships. He comes across as the sweetest, most sincere, most emotionally available man you could ever hope to meet.

He even video chatted with me once briefly and is very good-looking, just like his profile photo. In fact, he has a lovely Scandinavian accent. Within two weeks, Adam told me he loved me. He sent me beautiful love letters filled with poetry. Every morning, I woke up to a sweet message from him.

He messaged me several times a day. At night, we played WWF, sometimes for hours. He is an outstanding player, typically making words worth upwards of 60 points. This went on for seven weeks. During that time, we celebrated his birthday and our one-month anniversary. We talked about meeting in person and how exciting that was going to be.

Then, he got called to Norway to handle an emergency on the rig. It turns out some of the equipment burned up and he had to replace it or would lose his $2.5 million dollar contract. The equipment would cost $483,000. He said he had the money but was extremely aggravated at the carelessness of his workers who had caused the problem.

For nearly 24 hours, I did not hear from Adam because he was flying to Norway and once there, had to travel to the rig by helicopter. The six-hour time difference affected the timing of our communications. When I would wake up each morning and see Adam's "Good morning Babe" messages, I could see they were sent at 2:00 a.m. my time, which was 8:00 a.m. in Norway. How sweet of Adam to type out his message each morning when he woke up so that I would see it when I woke up six hours later. One day while on the rig, at my request, Adam sent me videos of his workers operating the oil drill.

I knew nothing about oil drilling and was curious about how Adam was spending his time. Over the course of the next week, Adam sent payments to the equipment supplier from his Wells Fargo account in Miami. Before he could make the final $83,000 payment, Wells Fargo froze his account. He anguished over his situation for a several days and finally asked his mother if she could help.

She could only come up with $31,000. Was there any way I could loan him the remaining $52,000? If not, he would understand. It would not change his feelings for me. After I told him I could not loan him the money, Adam continued to message me and play WWF with me as he always had. Just like he promised, our relationship did not change.

That is when I seriously started considering loaning him the money. What he did not know is that I was going to seek collateral by way of a mortgage against the house he purportedly owned in Miami. I am a lawyer and could easily have drawn up the documents. But it did not get that far and would have fallen apart at that point anyway because I would have required a title exam, proof of his identity, etc.

A good friend intervened, suggesting I read internet articles on WWF romance scams. And there I found it laid out in black and white - the exact scam scenario Adam had conducted with such expertise. The sad thing is, even after knowing Adam is not real, I miss the sweet man I fell in love with and the way he made me feel.

What a painful learning experience.

One final word of warning: Beware of Wolfgang Wilhelm. He is also on WWF with a very similar back-story as Adam, and he may even be the same person as Adam, or just reading from the same script.

Is this happening more now?
by: WWF player

What might cause an uptick in the WWF scammer activity?

I've been playing WWF for more than a year with the same picture (real picture of female me, which I will change today). In the past couple of days, six different men have started games with me and then started lame conversations.

I'm ok with chatting ABOUT THE GAME so I have looked at the conversations, but these men aren't chatting about the game.

Is there some kind of in-game behavior that would cause scammers to suddenly discover me?

If this keeps up, I won't look at the chats anymore, and that makes me sad because it's nice to be able to congratulate an opponent on a clever word.

Ok, this guy started out as Lam_Lash but said his name was Lash Desire, and that Lash is a popular Polish name. Not according to google it's not. Only been talking to him for a day and he's changed his name to Lash D. with his phone number now underneath which of course I haven't called.

When I questioned why he had put it on WWF he said he was fed up with ladies asking for his phone number and he didnt like to be disturbed. When I said that didn't make sense he said its his work number and doesn't go through. Yeah right!. I eventually did a photo trace on him and boy is he a serial scammer. Alexey Lushnikov, Alexis Jason Sean, Alex Cook to name but a few.

I tested his Polish by writing to him in Polish and he wrote back quite swiftly in polish. But of course I was using google translate and no doubt he was too.

This guy has scammed God knows how many women.

So the first guy messaged me last week and said he was a rheumatology surgeon from Texas and his name was David. Mind you my picture is my cat and I use a fake name. He told me he was widowed and that he has a son thats 17 and he's oh so proud of. He asked if I were single, I said no, I'm engaged to which he said he was jealous that he had no-one and hopes he's invited to my wedding. Then he said how his life is so lonely etc etc, it got too creepy so I blocked him.

A few days later, I got a message from a user named Stephen Townsend and his pic was one of the actual Stephen Townsend off Google in his uniform. He said "Happy Sunday!!! How are things regarding this global COVID-19 situation in your city?" I blocked him cause the first guy was creepy and I'm not down to deal with another loser.

Once you catch on to them, they are pretty hilarious with their stupidity. Go to Lightning Round and see how many you can pick out - tons. Become your favorite movie or show character when they contact you, or answer with song lyrics - something amusing, and see how long they stick with you on WWF (give creative excuses on why you can't go to hangouts or whatsapp, or give numbers or email) so you can waste their data and time.

This is the one who tried to scam me. Said he's a drilling supervisor on a rig in the Gulf of Mexico, widowed, a 10 year old boy in boarding school in Germany. Conversation rocked along normally until one day he called from Hangouts.

Wanted me to help him get a "package" containing money, gold and jewels. He couldn't get his attorney to do it he said. Also said his accounts are turned off while he's offshore. He sent me an address to a 10 million dollar mansion near Houston Tx saying he owns it. Being a skeptic, I looked it up. He doesn't own it by property records. He also said he has 2 Golden Retrievers, Billie and Daisy. He gave me the name of the boarding facility, so I checked it out too.

They've never heard of the dogs or of Robert Meyer. Long story short, this guy didn't have a German accent, no verifiable anything, then hot mad at me for looking. Only wanted me to help him get this package after professing love within 2 weeks.

But now wants me to open a crypto account for him as can’t access from rig, (yep on a rig!) and can then make deposit of his money.

I can’t get my head round this - so if anyone knows what the scam is please let me know. None of my money being used etc.?
