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.

Tips and tricks
by: Anonymous

If you are approached by a scammer online, all you need to do is type this word, ALAYE. He will immediately back off. This word says that you are also a scammer and he will respect you, and leave you alone. He may try to chat with you, scammer to scammer, but it will be in pigeon English, and you will not understand it. Just type the word ALAYE again And nothing more.

He will not bother you again

I am curious if he will tell you he is on bedrest with high blood pressure due to stress. Perhaps 180/90.

But will he say it is a flu virus and he was too sick to be online.


I have had both excuses by David Nathan, but remember the name may have changed.

He wanted $75,000 but now $40,000 is enough. No way am I sending one dollar.

I’ve got one that I’ve obviously had my inklings that something isn’t right. Asked for an itinerary card once and I said no and he was cool with it. He did ask for money for his sick mum as he couldn’t access his money due to being on a rig and I said I couldn’t.

He did go a little funny claiming he needs to sort things out on his own as he has no one. I kept apologising (only because I want him to admit it) and eventually he came back to his normal self, and has been fine ever since. Until Friday he was fine in the morning and then went MIA until Monday and claimed he hasn’t been well.

I tell you now trying to get this one to claim he isn’t who he says he is, is really hard. I don’t want to give up because I want him to confess. It’s hard trying to scam a scammer. I don’t know what else I can say to get him to open up

I use a tracfone to scam the scammers. I never use my own cell number or real email account. I was afraid they might hack my cell phone.

So I dummy up lol & scam them. Keep them busy from unsuspecting females as a diversion for a while until they want my snail mail address or Itune cards or banking account number to transfer money to me.
Just be careful if you want to scam the scammer.

When you have a scammer who starts to chat simply type Alaye

He will go away. This tells him that you are a scammer and he will back off immediately. A scammer of mine who came clean told me this. It works. He may ask questions that you won’t understand because he is chatting in Pidgin. Just ignore his questions and say Alaye

I don’t how we all can do it but we have to continue to block or stop them so that lonely, vulnerable women won’t be victims of these horrible men. I don’t know if there are trigger questions that we can ask to trip them up or what but we can let one another be victimized.

I get them constantly and I’ll play until they want me to go to hangout or whatsapp then when I refuse they move on. But, I can recognize them pretty easily now and it’s starting to get laughable but I feel bad for those who cannot recognize it.

These scammers steal people's photos on instagram and facebook.

Use innocent men's photos as they are mainly from Nigeria/ Ghana.

My scammer finally admitted it to me that he was a 30 year old student.

They sell itunes cards or anything they can scam from all their victims.

And when he finally admitted to his criminal act, he had the audacity to ask me to continue chatting to him and asked for more itunes to help him with school fees. They have thick skin - these people.

BEWARE: As soon as they ask for anything BLOCK THEM.

THEY ARE HEARTLESS PEOPLE. They are usually very good at hacking phones and can do anything in the name of deception.

James Williams

I chatted with a James Williams for a few days until I got suspicious. He was a widower, oil rig worker between contracts with a 12 year old son, Dave. He kept wanting me to chat with him through google hangout, which I did not do. I'm married so I wondered why he wants to chat with me as he told me he's lonely and looking for a wife and mother for his son.

His wife died 4 years ago. When our game ended he started up 10 or so games with me though we were only playing 2. When I told him I just wanted to play and not chat, he deleted all our games. I tried to start up a game with him but he's at max games and on the leaderboard he's at the top.

I think his playing/chatting may be automated. And maybe he wanted to hack my computer/phone through google hangout. Many common elements with other posts, so definitely some kind of scammer. He called me dear and said we could be good friends.

Beware!!

My scammer’s name is Richard Collins. I see he shut down his profile on WWF. He must have changed his name. I talked to him for two months before I knew for sure what he was doing. It took him that long to ask.

First it was a gift card then right to $10,000 to bring him and his crew home from an oil vessel in Sweden. The strange thing is he has gone to great lengths to continue to talk to me even after I told him I know what he is doing. Each time I play along he asks me for money to bring him home. I’m pretty sure Shell oil company wouldn’t leave the guy stranded in Sweden especially since he showed me the letter from Shell granting him a multi-million dollar contract.

The fact is these guys are good at what they do. He sent me pictures of this beautiful man and called me for months. He says he is originally from Mexico but lives In Pittsburgh. I can’t distinguish his accent. He has even sent me videos but miraculously the microphone was broken so there was no sound. He tripped up a lot in the beginning with height, what car he drove etc. and must not have been sticking to the same story with each woman.

I really started liking him and we planned to meet but clearly this isn’t happening now that I know he isn’t who he says he is. He claims to have a daughter with a nanny and lots of money but can’t get back from a business trip. Moral of the story is these guys are good and keep coming back for more in an attempt to convince people.

Be careful out there. I got on WWF for the first time in a month last night and within 2 minutes I had another one bite. Watch the show catfish before you play.

These people are everywhere.

I thought it was strange that someone with an average word score of five would want to play WWF with me, however I accepted. Right away he wanted to chat. I didn’t say much about myself, but he claimed to work on in an off-shore oil rig, widowed with a young daughter.

When he called me "dear" I told him I was not comfortable chatting with a stranger and preferred to just play the game. He came back with something about us being friends. My response was that a couple of chats does not make a friendship. His response was creepy. Something about it only takes a minute for friends to become lovers.

I figured out how to block him. The other day someone else with word point average of five wanted to play. I accidentally hit accept. Right away he started to chat. When I didn’t respond to his chats he quit playing, but I decided to block him anyway. I still started to wonder if this was happening to others. Sure enough it is, and there seems to be a common thread.

Oil riggers. Widowed. Young child.

The scammers change their usernames daily. But there are other obvious and telltale signs of a scammer: 1. Photo of good looking man, usually middle age. 2. Use of both first and last name in username. 3. Quickly asking marital or relationship status. 4. Asking for cell number or to chat on hangouts, etc. 5. Poor grammar. 6. Professing love quickly. 7. Widow. 8. Frequent terms of endearment. Very easy to spot. So anyone remotely falling into their trap is asking for trouble.

I found this out when I put his pic on yandex.com. Turns out he is on many dating sites and some are flagged for fake.

He never got to the point of asking me for money but I’m sure that was coming. His email is jameslouis4422@gmail.com which I also found out.

Not sure where he is from but he told me he has an accent. I’m sure he will reappear under another name because each of us dating profiles has a different name.

Answer - they must have a quota
by: Anonymous

If anyone wants to locate who the real person is in the photos that many scammers will use on WWF do reverse photo imaging at Yandex.images. Many times the real man is listed. Go to YouTube and scammers videos. Yes. I discovered that David Nathan is not Grant Cardone. Do not talk with scammers to lead them on because it keeps them hopeful to find their next victim after you. I talked to Jaysen Binney for many months - only the last month was questionable- he was a scammer from Africa only 35 years old, not 61.

He told me that white women hate black men so it is easy to want to scam white women. He said he came clean with me because he honestly fell in love with me. He became aware I have a black daughter in law which totally shocked him. He wants to come here to marry me or me go there to be with him. He went so far as be naked on Skype to prove how I excite him. I immediately blocked him completely. I could write a book.

They also wanted my employer name, their address, how much money I earned.

Thank God I was smart on all of this. I can see how they could wreak havoc on a person's identity. I was using my full name on WWFS. But I shut that account down & went with a non specific gender photo. Ladies keep your photos off your profile. The scammers have a way of getting your photo from your profile & they remember what you look like & your name...DANGER

Not all from Nigera
by: Anonymous

Think again on this. I have just now been able to use my Facebook page. My IPhone 7 was hacked but I had a new one on the way. Problem solved I thought, but not so. They had also access my wi-fi. AT&T advised they had no way of stopping this. I live on a dead end road and my traffic increased. WiFi was being accessed this way.

Think it can’t happen in the USA. You are wrong. Spoke with Apple 3 different times and AT&T twice as much. AT&T noticed I had a second number which I did not so it was removed. It was a bit of hell going thru this. My solution was a newer version of my firewall. Keep your guard up. I realized something really funky when my chatter seemed a bit more confident.

They want pictures of you and your house for locating. They hack into all you have and there is your banking info. I shut mine down immediately. I used my entire name on WWF. Not now!

The whole thing took time to resolve. Don’t chat!!!!!

How to get rid of these unethical scammers
by: Anonymous

I too have had a couple of scammers on Words. The first one I didn’t think he was a scammer just a friendly person so I talked to him for awhile said his wife and son died in a car accident and his daughter was in a boarding school overseas. Oh yes and he worked on an "oil rig" in the gulf.

When he started asking me for a gift card for his daughter that was it for me. I told him off and he disappeared and that was when I realized how many scammers are out there.

Had many since and usually say something to let them know I’m not playing along and then they disappear. Had one today who as many have said "I’m a peacekeeper in Iran"

Kind of said how coincidental it was that so many male players were "peacekeepers" somewhere but he didn’t get my sarcasm and continued to talk to me telling me he had a son in boarding school somewhere. I then said "Wow what another coincidence that you and so many other players have kids in boarding school. What are the odds of that?

I think he got my drift and disappeared. When he asked what my "job":was told him I was a "Fashion model". Which at 72 of course I’m not.
Just wanted to play his game a little.

It really is sickening that these men who can’t even write in proper English are preying on women. Beat them at their own game!

Jaysen Binney African Scammer
by: Anonymous

I met Jaysen Binney last year on WWF. It did not start as a romance, just friends. He was not talking about personal information. In Sept I had major issues with the man who lived with me and there was a major argument. That night Jaysen asked how my day was and I told him the crappy stuff in my life. He listened but did not tell me what to do. He became a friend. We became emotionally close. Then I discovered his photos were used in scams, camera not work - I blocked him.

In January2019 he emailed me his camera was fixed. We videod and he matched the photos. We stayed in contact and he was very jealous of other men. He kept telling he I was his and he loves me so much. During the way he wanted ITunes, $1,000 for Alex (son) school, $3,500 get off rig, me to collect a 4 million dollar trunk for him. I did a couple ITunes.

I called his son’s school - no teacher or student by names he gave me. Totally refused to pay one cent for him to come to me. I finally got him to confess after he realized I Investigate decently. I told him that Scammers end up in prison and become other prisoner’s bitches. He confessed and begged me not to turn him over to the police. He is 35, not 61.

PS. When I did video with Jaysen I would blow him kisses and he would blow them back. I asked my scammer how this coordinated. He said it was coincidental. I would wave and he waved back. Strange.

The best part - I was not crushed. A month earlier I told Jaysen I was done with his BS. Locally I met a wonderful real man and I am enjoying myself.

Every mam I met on WWF that wanted Romance was a scammer. Beware ladies- I should write a book.

Training scammers
by: Anonymous

If you engaged with any of these guys on a real level you would see that most are not what we have been led to believe they are. They don’t belong to a big syndicated outfit. They are poor young men who believe that their English is as good as ours and that they sound like like we do. From my experience they think they know exactly the formula that works - find rich American woman, pretend to be on an oil rig with a big contract, widowed or divorced with kids. That’s what has worked for years and they won’t deviate from it.

They don’t want to believe that that won’t work anymore! Not ALL Nigerians are scammers!
We need to also take some responsibility for ourselves and not be so gullible.

Be smarter ladies!

Please don’t unwittingly train a scammer
by: Marie

I have been playing WWF regularly for over 7 years. Unfortunately, I too have been inundated with a constant stream of very obvious and persistent scammers. I have lead then on and wasted their time in the past thinking it was fun, but I have since realized how wrong it was to engage with them at all.

My realization occurred because of a confrontation with a scammer, when I called them out, the scammer after repeated denials, finally came clean. The scammer then said "okay, what did I say or do wrong?" I thought OMG, do you think I am going to train you? Yes!!, that is what they wanted, for me to explain how I knew they were not American!!

A caution, when you knowingly chat with scammers, you are in effect training them to become even better at scamming. The more they interact with you the better their spelling and grammar will become and the harder it will be for the next potential victim to identify them as a scammer.

Remember, practice makes perfect. Please don’t let them practice on you to prefect their craft.

To the person who befriended them, you may believe you have made lifelong friends, but they are just using you to gain insight in our culture and to practice English. You may think they are harmless, but tell that to the next victims that they successfully conned out of large sums of money, maybe even the victims life savings. You are aiding in their cons by making them even better at it.

Ok these guys are not going to track you down. They don’t have the resources! They barely have enough data in most cases to chat with us, which is why they move us off WWF to hangouts or WhatsApp. Wwf uses up too much data!
I understand how the one person feels about lying to them. I felt that way too and it does take a lot of time. Most of these guys are really harmless and they are not gonna track us down as they don’t care that much about us.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have befriended a few of them and have come to really care about them. Their culture is very different from ours and they live a life that few of us would ever survive. I’ve made lifelong friends in them and have met their families and friends via video chat. They are human beings.. like us!

Leading Scammers on
by: Anonymous

I have lead scammers on. Played their game. The problem is it becomes so time consuming & creates headaches. I felt just as bad as them having to lie. Was I any better than them? I actually felt like I was reading a book. In fact, the stories I have would make up a good mystery/love story.

In the end I had to stop. I worried about what their real network connections were involved in.
Were they worldwide? Were their accounts being monitored for illegal activities? Would I be accused of helping out & being involved with their illegal actions? In the end, I decided to stop the insanity. Although it was very addictive. I just wanted one to own up to being a scammer.

I can say about 30 scammers & no confessions.

I have strung along so many scammers that they have started to block ME and I think it's hilarious. The latest one I was actually a teeny bit sad to have been blocked by only for one reason: He was a REAL good player. Mind you, his English was pretty crappy (like most of them) but his scores were great--his high game was higher than mine! (His was 697 points--mine's 658).

However, he blocked me...like they all pretty much do. Lol! This one's name was either Wilson Spencer or Spencer Wilson and, surprise, he actually told me that he is in Somalia. That may be true but I can assure you he is NOT an engineer from California. SMH.

Current guys trying to scam are JohnL (user JohnLucas7401) and LukeP (LukePeffer2019 which is interesting as his profile shows 1306 wins with a pathetic average game score of 142).

I’m quite tired of the constant harassment on WWF so after getting no where w/Zygna, I decided to have some fun. I don’t seek out anyone - I’m not TOTAL scum like scammers, lol - but when I’m in a game & the chat starts up, if it starts moving towards scam territory, I have my own fun. 😆 I’ve been a fed, a firearms instructor, a policewoman in a small town & a PI, as well as an entrepreneur/self-described mogul. 🤣

I never use my real name or a real picture (my profile pic is of an animal) so anytime they say I have a nice smile or am beautiful, I know the scam is afoot. 🤣 I get as much info from them that I can & waste their time completely. I take screenshots of everything & send them to myself & Zygna, though who knows what they do with the evidence.

I hope to one day compile everything into a blog post or book. It’s just my way of getting them back. And they deserve it.

He is a smooth talker. He is going to take you away and buy you everything your heart desires.
Then blocked him and then begged me to please unblock on hangouts as he has good news! He has $600,000 cash and he needs for me to keep it safe until he comes for it. I said NO but he supposedly sent it on. THEN the courier has been detained at the airport and unless I pay $50,000 The boxes will be opened and because the money is illegal I will be arrested. The price is negotiated down to $25,000. That’s because Paul knows how much I have in Savings. Okay its gone and then they keep demanding more.

Please I beg you at any time anyone ask you for iTunes cards, google play or Steam cards delete, delete, delete.

I Had 3 contact me to Play Words about the first of Feb. I got rid of Johnson DIEGO SUPPOSEDLY FROM NASHVILLE. Asking for $10,000 right off the bat on Hangout and asked to go there right away. Deleted him.

Alex William claimed to be a Dr in Afghanistan. Found out he was a young man from Nigeria looking for $10,000 for medical supplies.

Alessandro Marco claims to be on a oil rig needing materials and having the money wired to Turkey. With an agent by the name of Thuban Leo. And the account in Turkey is some woman in Istanbul Turkey supposedly husband to a loader on a ship that brings the materials to the rig. He chats on Hangout. Now he's looking for money to bring his tools and crew back and offers to double the money you send ha. Very charming. Says he was born in Rome Italy but came to America at 9 years of age and lives in St Petersburg Fl and has a 21 year old daughter living with his sister in Canada and going to college. Wife passed away 4 years ago.

But when I search him I find nothing.

Why do 90% of men on here have fantastic jobs and wives that have recently died in tragic circumstances such as a plane crash, car crash, childbirth etc leaving them to bring up children. Once I hear the start of a sob story coming I resign. You can play half a dozen games with women with no chat but with men it’s immediately Hi, where are you from dear and are you married. Pathetic

Jim Walton or Walton Jim is another one I found. He doesn’t know how to speak English very well at all. He takes a long time to make a move and it’s two or three letter words. He started a conversation with me. I asked if he’s playing lots of games (because it takes him so long to move), and replies, "thanks, dear". Also I recommend not using your real name on the game. That’s how the first scammer found me off the game!

Scanners
by: Anonymous

I too have been bombarded with new game requests. I cringe anytime I see it is a male as I know the chat might start up soon. I see that many people list the names of these scanners, but I honestly think they just change their profile name and user id.

I have these "males" call me anywhere from dear friend to dear to cupcake. I had one told me I have a beautiful smile, however my profile pic is of a national attraction and not of me. I had one ask me if I was ready to get married, but at 1st I need to send him pics so he can see if I qualify to be married to him.

To send him pics I need to either download hangouts or What’s App. I send neither of these options are feasible and the pleading starts "how will I get to know you better"

I went off on one and said this is not a dating app and what does my marital status and number of children have to do with playing game?

I contacted Zygna and they assured me the matter has been resolved, but this person is still active and continues to play the game. After reading these comments in this forum I honestly do not believe Zygna are taking these complaints seriously.

Just saying, they don't really love you. They love the fact they can steal your money and that is their entire goal in having you give them your cell number, e-mail address & moving you to hangouts, whatsapp, viber, KIK.

I used to think the scammers were a big network working together. However, my recent findings make me believe there are numerous scammers working alone with maybe a friend's help & their Iphones.

I believe the scammers are in their mid twenties & early thirties. Their intent is to make money just so they can eat.

My recent scammer's cell phone had used too much memory & had to be reset. He reset his phone & lost the photos I sent him. I thought for sure he had stored these in a folder, but he didn't. Not too high tech. Anyway. I just thought I would pass this info along.

My scammer
by: Anonymous

So same story here. My scammer claimed his name was Dave Berman. As charming and romantic as they come but long story short davebelman80@gmail.com does not exist.

Wife cheated on him. She tried to get half of his money, he fought and won. General Surgeon on duty on his last assignment in Kabul. Precious son Kelvin that always wanted a Mom. His Mom left him to be raised alone with the help of a maid. Starting a clinic in Seattle in June, then whisking me away on a romantic vacation then introducing me to all of his colleagues at the UN and World Health Organization in New York, at his retirement party.

This guy was good, really good. As I was starting google to figure out if this guy is for real, I realized more than likely he was not, but was not convinced. I read and reread the message looking for signs, and found more and more as time went on, and many other things but the final straw was him once again bringing up the ex.

Tells me he is confused, like never before. He doesn’t know what to do. He told me he just got an email saying he only had 3 days to reclaim items from his deposit box in the UK and he has no one to help him being out of country. His maid never got back to him about the letter the security company sent for over six months and now he only has 3 days. I began to play him at that point. Could see the frustration and even anger in his words. He was desperate, begging me not to throw away what we had.

I would as he called it go mute. and I could tell it was driving him crazy. Last night I agreed to help. This Morning I did not respond and he kept telling me to snap out of it. I did not respond then finally told him the 1 percent of me that held back cannot do this.

He reacted with frustration then tried to call me via hangouts. Sorry to be so lengthy but hoping some of these manipulative action might hit home with any current and future victims.

Gen Rick Burr
by: SCAM BUSTER!

This is a scammer. Story just the same as others. Is using the real Ltn Gen Rick Burr's photo. Claims to be in Afghanistan working on a peacekeeping mission. Started out he wanted to send me a treasure box full of his medals and money as the safe house was being closed down.

Then wanted me to send an email to the UN requesting he be allowed to take vacation so he could meet me in my country and get married and the last straw was he asked me to add his 15 yr old son whom he called Kevin at 1st then changed it to Jerry.

If I questioned anything he got very defensive and mad at me for not trusting him. The whole time he wouldn't let up trying to get me to do all this stuff saying I was the only 1 that could help him and saying he was crying. He told me he loved me so much and missed me. He told me he had millions of dollars but had no access to his accounts until he left the army.

I just played along with all this until I had enough. The last thing is he wanted me to buy his son a $1600 computer for his birthday of April 5th. Through the whole thing I looked up the real Ltn Gen Rick Burr on twitter and saw his posting so I would add the imposter if he tweeted that day and he replied no.

Well there were more posting by the real one and he either ignored my questions or got mad at me for asking. So I did more research and checked out both his email IP addresses of his and his so called son and they came from same spot in Kansas.

When I told him he was busted, he replied, why didnt you ask me why it showed Kansas. The guy must think Im a fool. Well he is the fool because the whole time I was just goofing off to see how far he would push. I deleted him from hangouts and blocked both his emails.

I haven't heard a thing since I told him he was busted. Its pretty pathetic how low these guys will go for money. I wish we could do more to charge them. BTW, I emailed the real one and he didn't even recognize my name.

Surprise Surprise! So dont fall for any of these sweet talking fools as you dont fall in love with someone after only 3 days. lol

Sent through banking details but none of the names matched, and he told me my bank should be open and for me to go there and deposit money now! I have screen shots of his conversations and his photo just need to know how do I put his photo up so others are aware.

Frank Donald 118 words player since February 9, 2019. I started chatting with him till he asked for my cell phone number or my email address. I made up a new address and gave it to him in the chat. Then he insisted that we talk on Hangouts. I said no and just continued to chat on the words game.

I’ve suggested single groups for him where he lives in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin but he says he never goes to those sites. I’m not dating anyone right now so it was kinda nice having a guy chatting daily telling me how much he likes me. At first I thought he was looking to date but after reading this list I guess not.

I will block him and resign from our game.

Aw, I think I made them all mad
by: Anonymous

I was being inundated by scammers for several months and of all of the potential scammers, one went on for several MONTHS before trying to scam me (says his daughter fell and the doctor needed $2500 for surgery and he didn't have access to $ since he was "working in Guyana in high seas".)

That was Mark Ferguson (although he lists his name as "Mark Fergunson").

Then there was Kurt Anderson, Paul Walker, Paul Wiatt and a few more. At first, it was fun messing with them but then it became boring so as soon as they started in with asking where I'm from and my name, my next statement would be to write, 'Let me guess--you're either widowed or divorced, working in the high seas/a contractor and you're going to need money soon, too, right?" EVERY single one of them would suddenly disappear.

After having about 6-7 guys all try the same thing within a week and getting the same response back from me, I have not received a scam attempt in at LEAST a month now. I think I made their block list ha ha! I DO have two people who have been challenging me to games- and I've been playing but we're on our 3rd game now with each player and they have never written one word to me so, apparently, some random people DO just play the game for the sake of playing the game. The two who are playing and NOT trying to scam (or, if they plan on it--they're slow!) are 1bigciscsalsd and Radical Palmer.

I too played along with a scammer. But when I revealed to him that I knew he was a scammer and he called me an "Old Goat. You waste my time. Hope you die quick".

I’ve just spent 2 weeks playing this one at his own game, and knew he was a scammer from the outset, but decided to waste his time and have some fun putting the screenshots of our chat on my Facebook. Also contacted a number of women he had started games with, so hopefully I have prevented him from successfully getting any money out of anyone slightly more naive than me to think he was it real.

Ladies, if you have time, play along, pretend you are in love with them. It’s very satisfying. I told him what I was really doing yesterday, and in no uncertain terms told him what I think of scum like him.

Marine Engineer Scammer on Words With Friends
by: Anonymous

Do not respond to Michael Joachim, another widowed "marine engineer" working on an oil rig (off the coast of Argentina and/or Ghana). He pretends to be from Hamburg, Germany, but lives in California, is widowed (wife and young daughter died five years ago in a car accident) with one son (Ken). His story probably changes to adapt to the target audience.

This seemed like an attempt at a scam with the ultimate goal of identity theft. (If you engage in dialogue, he will soon "fall in love" with you, offer to visit you wherever you live, want to get married, ask you to move to California to be with him when he gets off the oil rig.

Meanwhile he will very weirdly ask you to "open a new AT&T account" for him in the US, as his is "about to expire" and after I refused to do this he was whisked from the rig in Argentina to Ghana, where his English seemed to get worse. I finally checked out this site and realized this is a common scam.

I can't believe I believed this was a real person for at least a few weeks. I'm a highly educated person with several master's degrees. Some of what he was saying was a bit weird / not adding up. But I was at the tail end of a relationship that was going nowhere fast, so I was somehow susceptible to believing the BS of this scammer / these scammers.

I also thought Words With Friends was not a place full of scammers. Now I know better. Trust no one!

The scammers might be saving data by having chats on Hangouts, Viber, Whatsapp, but the most recent scammers want to chat via texts on cell phones.

I for one use a google number. However, Viber requires your real cell number so I have never chatted on Viber. Personally, I am not giving out real personal information.

I have noticed they want a cell number, then an e-mail address. I have even been asked for my home address so they can send a gift. It wigs me out to provide that type of info to someone I have never met. Just say no & block.

I was contacted by someone claiming to be General James Ambrose earlier this week on Words with Friends - I thought it was odd that his written english was fairly poor for someone of such well decorated status. Asked me to log in to hangouts etc...started to profess profound feelings and talked of marriage.

Having done a reverse image search, the photos sent to me were of General Robert Abrams and would appear to have been used in previous scams, as a facebook victim group comprising of 483 members would testify.

Funnily enough, after I confronted the scammer with my suspicions, the profile on Words with Friends disappeared.

Whilst I was never asked for any money, I feel it is my duty to make others aware of this predator as I feel that if I had appeared more vulnerable I may have been taken advantage of financially.

Wanted to talk to me on hangouts so we could be more intimate, and open and wanted to send pictures. I said no we could chat on WWF if he wanted to chat. Googled him and found he’s impersonating Koke Yepes and had created an Instagram page a day ago under martinyepes.p.

Reported both his Instagram and WWF account. He didn’t ask for any money, but was working the romance angle and went so far as to tell me that when he returned from duty 3 years ago his girlfriend was pregnant with another man’s baby.

Romance Scammers

I have had my share of romance scammers. My first two were the best. They developed a relationship before going for the jugular. However, when they started asking for help to move contract money into the States, their requests became demands. I had to block them.

After blocking them, I missed the interaction. So I started communications with others. The next few scammers wasted no time requesting money & asking me to transfer their business money into my account then having me send them their money while retaining a percentage. This folks is money laundering & is against the law.

Although I once enjoyed messing with these scammers, I can honestly say that I am done with their crap. My addiction has ended. Be careful out there. They might be young & innocent but their intent is criminal.

Said he was from Germany originally but lost parents when young. Lost wife and unborn baby in car accident. Lives in LA area, works on an oil rig and has double degrees. If double degrees then why only able to do 3 to 9 point words. Also bad English. I would think if you lived in US since a teenager and double degree you would be a little smarter.

After the initial hellos and starts saying all I do is think of you dear I know I’m being cat-fished. I just resigned the game.

Widowed petrol chemical engineer from Austin Texas- you know the drill 😏. Same slick lines as usual - you're beautiful & cute & I need to talk to you on google hangouts. I am telling him numerous times I'm married & ignoring messages didn't deter. Simple reverse image search showed him to be fake.

Called him out on it & got told 'how dare you for not believe me!'

Haha English needs some work. Don't bother wasting your time. Peace ✌🏾

Your scammer will send fake checks to you, have you purchase Itune cards or wire money to him & tell you to retain a portion of the money. It takes about 2 weeks for the bank to figure out the check is fraudulent. But you have already wired him the money & you are responsible for the fraudulent check.

Hope this makes sense. Plus he now has your account number & who knows what they can do with that knowledge.

You commit money laundering by opening an account for them to put money into as its money they’ve scammed from other people, so don’t open an account and don’t spend the money on cards for them and just don’t send cards etc to anyone!

Also report user name on wwf on the chat feature. Do that then they can investigate and block the person

Wants to open an account in my bank and send money from his USA account so I can buy him cards as I refuse to do it from my money.

Gullible
by: Smarter than the scammers

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies, how can you be so gullible? These scammers are not going away any time soon. As soon as one is gone, another one appears. They pretty much have the same M-O. Sweet talkers, calling you dear or by your screen name, full of compliments when you have never met them or spoken to them. They ask if you're married, have children, believe in God, your cell phone number, if you go on hangouts and eventually, they get around to asking for money.

They are working away from their home in a foreign country and have a terrible family emergency. A dying child, their wife is usually deceased, surgery is needed or they have no way to call home.

DO NOT FALL FOR ANY OF THESE LIES!

These people are professional scammers but can be spotted a mile away. Stay safe Ladies

After I told him I was sick because I thought he was just a nice guy and enjoyed the conversation, now I realize he is trying to scam me. He became angry and came at me like I was the one in the wrong. He said F*** You and that was that.

Innocent Scammers
by: Anonymous

Sure these scammers are innocent and just trying to survive. Survive off lying to lonely older women & lonely men. My scammer first paved a road leading to me falling in love. Then the hammer fell down.

You love me dear, why won't you send me $6,500 to fix my broken rig. I will pay you back double the money. I have a contract of $1.8 million but need this part to finish contract. I said no.

The next thing he wanted was for me to set up an account in my name. He would send me money from another contract he just got paid on. Then I was to wire the money back to him. I could keep 10% of the money...but guess what? It would be a fake check...fortunately, I figured this all out & did not do it. Money laundering at its best. Could be jail time for me plus owing all that money.

Folks, believe if you want that these requests are harmless but they have caused others to become bankrupt & put into prison. Not to mention the heart break it brings on the person scammed. I was in denial after the fact for 6 months. I felt the reason the relationship ended was my fault but in reality there never was a relationship. He or she would have just kept trying for more & more money.

Cross romance scammers off my bucket list forever.

Excuses for Scammers
by: Anonymous

There might be a harmless scammer in the mix, but I feel the majority are not harmless. The scammers I dealt with wanted to money launder $4 million dollars, purchase bitcoins, contact investing companies & provide social security numbers, banking account information, credit card numbers, etc.

These are serious ways to scam someone you love. They pull at the heart strings of someone in love. Seriously, you would help someone you love out financially. But the problem is they do not love you. They only want your money. Their motive is evil & their intent is to take every dime the person they are scamming owns. Heartless!

Scammers

Most of these guys are in their 20’s and 30’s and are harmless. They are not going to come after us or anything, nor do they care where we really are. Most of them are just trying to feed themselves every day. That does not make it right, but it is not some large syndicated operation.

I believe that many of these young men are also just looking for someone to care about their life. They are sent off on their own at a very young age because mom and dad have so many children they cannot afford to keep everyone at home. These young men are put out on their own and have to learn to survive. There are no jobs in Nigeria and the government simply does not care about its youth. Again this is not right, but this causes them or forces them to scam just to live.

I have spoken to many young men who are scamming and have admitted to it. Many of them feel very guilty and I don’t like scamming, some of them have even stop scamming because of the guilt it has caused them. Others continue to do it just to eat and pay their bills to live. And yes there are some that make a big living at this and live very big lives because of their scamming. But I do not believe that is the bulk of them.

Again I am not making excuses for what they do. What they do is wrong. I had just to Involve myself to the point where I would find out why they do it.

Wayne Anderson, Wayne Aderson
by: Anonymous

Wayne Anderson uses accounts and multiple emails. He uses Wayne Aderson too. He is a 100% scammer. He goes for iTunes cards, then Amazon cards. Next is wanting your Facebook Login and password along with thousands of dollars.

Then he moves onto your credit card login and password plus your social security number. That’s right folks. I stayed by during our conversations on Hangouts. He called me 14 times on the telephone begging me to trust him. When he talked firmly I would hang up. When he realized I was done with him he asked me if I was going to block him again. I told him as soon as I committed to another man I would show him and block him. I sent him a photo of my hand with my engagement ring and blocked him recently.

During the many phone calls Wayne’s voice was a foreigner about 20 years old, not USA citizen that has been in the USA 50 years of his life.

James vs. Kurt Anderson
by: Anonymous

Funny...allegedly, Kurt Anderson is from Tennessee, too. (Well, CLAIMS to be from Amsterdam but living in TN now)

I have a "scam detector" account where I don't list where I'm from and use a gender neutral name. Kurt blocked me from my "real" account but he's now playing against me on my detector account and I didn't wait for him to ask me where I'm from; I asked him and told him I live outside of Memphis. :-)

BTW--the phone number that Kurt gave me starts with a 469 area code--that's McKinney, TX. I STRONGLY suspect that it's a number used by multiple scammers and manned by a few others. If you call that number, no one will answer. I won't text because I'm not giving out my cell to any of them (I get enough spam calls, thank
you very much) but I do also have a BS detector e-mail that i will give them.

Funny how none of them want to e-mail for long as they always then suggest text messages or Hangouts. It will be a cold day in Hell before I ever go onto Hangouts.

James Wright and others

To those saying that James WRight disabled his account, no, he did not. He is still online as simply "James" but the user name is still "James58932". I started a game with HIM--it took him two days to accept it and we've been playing for two more days but, so far, he hasn't tried to ask me anything at all.

I recently was contacted by "Kurt Anderson". He claims to be from Amsterdam and currently living in Tennessee. Of course, he is an "independent drilling contractor". Difference between him and other scammers is that he actually has quite good English and claims to currently be in the States.

Am somewhat waiting for the "let's go to Hangouts!" to start or the plea for money but I'm also a bit bored with him. He did give me a phone number but I have not called--it has a Texas area code. I Googled the phone number and it had two hits for some guy in McKinney, Texas and complaints that he would ask for $200/is a scammer. Both hits said that the person called himself Mark something (don't remember/too lazy to go check now).

The next time I corresponded with him, I wrote something like, "Talk to you later, Mark. Oops, I mean Kurt" and he claimed to be offended...and now signs his chats "Mark". He also told me that he was captivated by my profile picture and my beautiful curves. My reply was to ask him if he was aware that my photo is of my DOG. Lol!!!

Haven't heard from him since then (this AM). BTW--he also claims that his birthday is today, Valentine's Day.

Finally, I've posted previously about "Paul Walker". I was actually able to get him to admit (assuming it's not another lie) that his name is really Derrick Mark and that he lives in Nigeria, has a 17 year daughter names Becky (doubtful) and likes to smoke weed (quite probable).

I'm so sorry for people who actually believe the BS that these guys try to sell. They're SO obvious.

So...Here’s my story.

In May 2018 I was approached by Mr Huddle through WWF.

Oil rig, deceased wife, one son etc etc.

He said ALL the right things for months. I fell deeply in love with him. He asked for money a number of times without success. He managed to convince me if he could just meet me we could work it all out. I took money from my IRA to fund his trip home. What was I thinking? I own a business and am not stupid. He knew very well what he was doing. I was completely innocent to his wiles.

I guess this message is aimed at anyone thinking they’ve met the love of their life. I can now look back and say that I saw the signs but I refused to heed them.

One frequent question is "have you eaten?" Uses words like "dear" or ok love". Says that he's a marine engineer, on ship in Atlantic Ocean. Even sends phony award that states he's been in a job there a couple of years, waiting to collect a half million dollars when finished.

Wants his kids to get to know you, on hangouts app. Professes love eventually. Was waiting to be asked to help pay for stuff. Deleted it before it was headed there. He is a very convincing guy, texts and calls at all hours.

She wants to exchange numbers and talk that way, however I am extremely skeptical about that. I did create a text for free web account and generated a number but haven't given it out yet.

Nigerian scammers

I've had 2 scammers that I've chatted with long enough to call them out on their lies. They both have told me they were Nigerians. One was 19 and one 20. They had sad stories of not having enough to eat. Ones parents were dead. One just wanted enough money to go to school. They both said they were using a friend's cell phone.

I'm not sure I believe these stories but they are more believable than the ones they start with on WWF, one saying he was a MD and of course one was in the oil field, single, daughter etc. I only chatted with them in WWF. I was not going to give them any other info about myself or chat in any other place online. I almost felt sorry for them if they are poor Nigerians but there's no way I'd send them money. I told them both to quit scamming players. I doubt they will listen to me especially if they get any money sent their way.

So don't be taken in by these 'men' expressing love, etc. They probably are teenage boys from Nigeria.

Told him I couldn't find any info on Google about a Dr. Trump (still makes me giggle, these scammers will use ANY name haha), and he resigned our game right away.

Do women scam men on WWF?
by: Anonymous

Luckily, I used an email address I really don't care about. My biggest concern now is could have something actually gotten into my computer from the images. I have run several virus scans with various programs and nothing has shown up.

Also created a different wwf account and started playing her. Immediately she started talking, so I pretty much have my answer now.

It appears the account diane armstrong world on WWF is a scammer.

Do women scam men
by: Anonymous

On the reverse photo thing, it has not been picking up fake photos lately. If she wants to go to another social network area...Hangouts, VIBER, KIK, Whatsapp, cell phone texts, email...beware.

If you want, enjoy the romance but don't reveal personal info (get a google voice number, generic email account) until you actually meet her in person. A scammer will come up with all kinds of reasons they can't meet or even do a video chat.

If she contacts via a phone can thru your google voice number or hangouts or whatsapp, see if she has an accent. All that I have talked to do have an accent. Be careful because some are fishing for identity theft. Hope this is helpful.

Reverse image
by: Anonymous

Lately the reverse imaging is not revealing fake photos, although I am pretty sure at least 7 profiles are using fake ohotos. I believe the scammers have found a work around on tineye & Google reverse imaging.

My word of advice, do not reveal personal information (cell numbers, email addresses) to anyone you have not met in person.

If you want to communicate get a Google voice number & a generic gmail account. Never give your real cell number out.

Yes. Women scam men on WWFs. My male friend had a female from Russia trying to get him to go on hangouts. It was totally a scam. He met her on WWFs.

Also, some male scammers on WWFs are actually females posing as men & scamming women. You never really know who you are dealing with online. So word of warning do not give personal info or send money to people you have never met in person.

About a month ago I started receiving a lot of new game requests from guys I do not know. The first one did tell me he was from Italy and worked on an oil rig in Louisiana. I don’t remember his name. But it seems that after chatting with them for awhile on WWF they always suggest taking the conversation to Hangout. The third guy that I have been chatting with just mentioned Hangout. His name is Phillip Brown. He told me his wife died during surgery and he’s raising his daughter by himself.

None of them have asked for any money. I am blocking them all. No more new games with guys I don’t know. Another name is Christopher Thomas.

Is Paul W "Paul Wyatt"?
by: Anonymous

I see several references to Paul Wyatt. I have someone whose alleged name is Paul W. and I'm sure he's a scammer but he hasn't given a last name and he simply appears as Paul W. (photo is of a middle aged man with grey hair/glasses and he's wearing what looks to be a pale pink tee shirt).

He says he is from Helsinki but living in LA now. Other than the FIRST sentence he ever wrote to me, his English is decent. However, he clearly has a lot of interaction going on with multiple people as he first asked my name, then where I'm from and then my hobbies. Then, he asked where I'm from again and when I told him he already asked me that, he asked me for my hobbies again. When I told him that he had already asked that, too, he asked if I like country music. Lol!

I simply don't see how anyone falls for these idiots. Really. BTW...none of the answers I give are EVER real and my most favorite thing to write is that I do cyber security and go online looking for scammers so that my company can prosecute. Funny how the scammers disappear every single time.

BTW--I wish that WWF had a feature where we could copy/paste some of the dialogue here. Sometimes, I really have fun at the scammer's expense. Poor "Mark Ferguson". Lol!

Ben Piccio. Aka Ben Carson Aka Wayne Anderson
by: Anonymous

Wayne Anderson sucked me in with his smooth talking. He was supposed to arrive Nov 10th 2018, but on Nov 7th he had Emergency and wanted money. New date Dec 15th but on Dec 14th needed $4,700 dollars. When I called him out on it he wanted my Facebook account and password and a copy of my driver's license.

I asked him if he wanted my Social Security number too...Lol. I am not stupid. He gave excuses which are all lies. I blocked Wayne.

Ben Piccio - A week after blocking Wayne, Ben used the same photos. So I let Ben spin his story. When confronted concerning Wayne Ben said his photos were stolen a year previous. Ben used a new style with me. Agreed to meet in February. No talk of love allowed. Suddenly Ben is talking about how much he loves me, sending me poems, calling me more often and wanting me to move to San Fransisco with him and then asks for $675. Ben used Ben Carson saying that Carson is his grandson. I said goodbye to Ben Piccio.

Ben Piccio 5 - That's right 5 days later Ben asked me to play on WWF with him again. He starts out telling his same story, asks me questions, suddenly I ask him if he forgot me that easily. He said...Do I know you? I quoted the poem he had just sent me and suddenly Ben and the game disappeared.

Moral of the story - Do NOT trust BEN PICCIO, BEN CARSON OR WAYNE ANDERSON OR ANYONE USING THE PHOTOS.

I'm not sure whats happening here now. I've suddenly found myself playing with someone professing to be a very young leggy dancer from the UK. Classic hallmark of scam with very recent WWF account and immediately very chatty. Jury was out for a while but I now seem to be getting some classic, suggestions but I must admit very subtle probing questions with more and more inappropriate comments.

Though on the surface it still looks, well, inconclusive. Am now wondering if after having no luck after fishing for weeks with the 'handsome man' bait, they're now trying the 'same sex' option.

He says dad was from the Nederland's and his mom from Canada but dad and sister died in a car crash a long time ago and mom died of cancer.

Today he said his phone fell and is crushed so he is having a hard time using it. Needs me to send him $100 Amazing card. Yeah right! I don't think so Scammer!!

Thompson Bill is for sure a scammer. My first 2 scammers never asked for Itunes. One was searching for financial information like what I earned, how I got paid, types of credit cards and then 3 months later wanted to transfer $4 million into an account of mine. I finally talked to him & he was not American but a horrible accent.

The other scammer chatted for 2 months then needed $6,500 because a part on his oil rig broke down.

So Thompson Bill sounds like my first two scammers. I have had over 30 & yes most ask for Itune cards but not all of them.

Hi! Has anyone played Words With Friends 2 with Thompson Bill? I believe I’m also being trolled by a scammer. Started with hello on WWF then what are my Likes/Dislikes. Says he’s an honest man, not selfish, kind and humble and god fearing. Asks me if I’ve been to any other countries. He’s been all over the world; Australia, England, Belgium, Canada, Italy, France, Germany, Mexico etc. Asks me what I find attractive in men. In the beginning he’s also a very good WWF player. So I’m like ok at this point. What’s my favorite meal? Spells favorite; favourite.

Keeps saying Smile to me for some unknown reason. Tells me his ex-wife cheated on him and made off with a lot of his money. She called him for a divorce and he let her go! He says he has no children, both parents are dead and he’s an only child with no living relatives. Was born in Sydney Australia but he’s been in the US for 15 years. He tells me he does excavation of crude from the sea; roughneck and roustabout jobs in the Golf 🏌️ not the Gulf of Mexico so i just think it’s a typo because he keeps on saying the Golf of Mexico.

He sends me pictures however I believe they are pictures of some innocent nice man who had no idea that his pictures are being used.

Please advise me because he hasn’t asked me for any money or Apple iTunes cards.

Joke! He's finally gone from WWF because I told him my bank would check on his info! There are 18 scammers now on the game I'm playing! I know cause I've played them all!

Some names-

Kenneth Rohan,

Franklin Davis,
Fred Roger,
James Gregg,
Jim Mcnell (he's on with 2 different pics), Kelvin Noah,

Smith Robinson.

These are just the recent ones. I could go on, but you get it! Being in Canada, the names are fairly Canadian.

I've played with them all and most wanted iTunes, money. I'm still playing with some as they haven't actually requested money yet. I could have been remarried about 3 dozen times!!! The grammar and spelling are horrible, first one was a year ago November and he was a Brigadier General in the US Air Force! It went on for a long time.

So Irritated!
by: Anonymous

I usually let them message me a few things, then as soon as they start with the "usual" story of Widower, adopted her children, works as an oil engineer, blah blah blah. I really AM a widow, in fact a year ago this month, and it really upsets me they keep trying even after I tell them that and that I am NOT interested in romance/friendship.

I flip out, basically tell them "nice try a$$hole" and block them. I wonder if they just create a new profile and try again? Geez these guys are relentless and I am SOOOO over it! I am truly sorry to hear another commenter's Mother-in-law is stubbornly believing these men could be for real.

I really hope we are all watching out for our female family members! It isn't just the older, or lonely women either! My 18 year old niece fell for some email scam last year. They suckered her for $1500!!! I really thought she would know better!

REPORT AND BLOCK LADIES!

Hi, all. I've posted before about "Mark Ferguson" (although his user name is Fergunson Mark because, apparently, he didn't think to remove the extra "n"). Well, HE ended up blocking ME. Since that time, I've been contacted by "Vincent Wade" (THAT was comical--he not only claims to be from Ohio but even says he's still in Ohio) because of some of the answers he gave.

Case in point, I asked him what his favorite sport is and he said football. I asked his favorite team and he said 'Real Madrid'. Uh--sure, it's football if you're NOT IN AMERICA! I called him out from the beginning and he was too stupid to realize that I was blowing his cover.

Since October, I have had at least five of this idiots profess their undying love to me. Bantering back and forth with "Mark Ferguson" was kind of fun. The others were simply too mind numbing so I've just started calling all of them out. Since then, no one has sent me any new game requests. For that reason, I am convinced that it's a ring and that they keep records (spreadsheet?) of who is gullible and who is not.

BTW one thing that "Mark Ferguson" did I am still wondering about is he's from Los Angeles (yeah, right) but "working in Guyana in high sea". He tried to scam me under two separate WWF accounts of mine. On the first one, he was 58 and had a 12 year old daughter who was injured and he needed $$ to send to England to pay her doctor because his funds are tied up. On the second one, he was 48, still has a 12 year old daughter (BTW--his wife died during child birth. Pity) but he handled the request for money differently so I created a bogus e-mail address and gave it to him and I started getting e-mails from "his superiors" requesting $2500 to pay his insurance so that he could come see my in Bolivia (BTW, I'm in the good ol' USA).

I never figured out if he had a partner helping run his attempted scam to man the e-mail or if he was both "himself" and the company/his boss. His company name is Source Security Company and his "boss" is James McCarthy.

Oh, and if you string them along, have some fun with it. Me? I started asking him a LOT of sexual things that he would do when we're together. At first, his responses were very generic like, "I will make love to you all night" but when pressed, he started writing some stuff I've never heard of and it was really, really weird. When I told him that he was "scaring me", he did a 180 and started writing about how much he loved me, yada, yada, yada.

Knowing that the person on the other end of the scam is likely about 23 years old and likely not too experienced, I'm sure I wrote a few things that were way above his comprehension level. Lol!

My Scammers
by: Anonymous

I have had numerous scammers. I know for sure on at least three of my scammers there was a gal working with them that posed as a daughter. I also know on two of them I noticed a different voice on the phone calls that sounded like two different men. I called one of the scammers out on this & he told me he was hacked. LOL. He then switched chatting from Whatsapp to Hangouts & was insistent I close my Whatsapp account down.

So I think some scammers do work with others.

You can't make this stuff up. A guy named Steven played WWFs with me and convinced me to chat on Hangouts. So I have been chatting there for over a week. Well, I just checked today to get Steven's profile name on WWFs and he has changed his name and blocked me. What a piece of crap...just kidding. I knew he was a scammer all along.

Anyway, I called him out for blocking me on WWFs. He said he stopped playing because he needed to clear his mind. I then called him out for changing his profile name.

He writes back and told me to just leave him alone. He did not need this BS (he spelled it out). He says I told you I was clearing my mind.

Anyway, I left him alone alright and he can clear his mind. His new name is:

Peter Renshaw. Profile is renshawpee364

Re:one reason they chat on Hangouts

One person told me they want to chat on Hangouts because it uses less of their data. The advertisements on WWF eats up their data. That’s why sometimes once they start chatting with you you on wwf, they’ll quit playing the game.
And then the story ends they want an iTunes card.

Re chat apps
by: Anonymous

If you go to WhatsApp you give them your telephone no which you may use as a password for another app. If you go to Hangouts which is probably better in the long run as you can block them, but also they can ask you for your location if they ring you up so make sure it’s turned off. Also it’s a cheap way to contact you.

Don’t give them anything about you or your family or friends. It’s away of phishing.

I had fun with the romance scammers in 2018. However, my resolution for 2019 is to block them right away. I can spot them right off the bat. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see thru their crap.

I had always felt I was keeping them busy and away from an unsuspecting person. However, I came to realize these scammers can handle a lot of different people very easily. They actually send the same text and message to several people at one time. It doesn't really take much time out of their day. And, hey, if they are lucky they can collect Itune cards and sometimes much more.

I thought for a while this guy was for real. He's 47 - with a 7 year old daughter in the care of a nanny while he's away working. Widower. I'm 66, told him so - didn't make any difference. Just wants to be "close friends". First he asked me for itunes card so he could download cartoons to his daughter's tablet for Christmas since he wouldn't be able to get home. Of course I told him no.

Next, he went out with friends to celebrate a birthday party (went out? in the middle of the ocean? go figure) and got shot in the hand! and his phone is ruined! And he needs money ($1500 should do it) for his daughter! and her medications! omg.

And why can't i do this for him? Like - what is wrong with me that I can't help someone out in their time of need?!?!?! It's almost laughable. So now he keeps trying to start games with me, but I keep declining. Eventually I will block him.

Unlike the person who gave Petersen Franklyn Johnson their email address, I gave John Church mine & also everything about my family & personal life. This was all before I knew about Romance Scammers.

I ended up terminating my WWFs account & email account. He never asked for my cell number, so for that I was thankful.

I recently chatted with a scammer who informed me they can't find me in the States even if they had a lot of personal info. Not sure this is true, but it made me feel better. I literally went into hiding for two months. FYI this new scammer I am chatting with does not have my real name or my real email address. I am only chatting with him to pick his brain. See why they do what they do.

It is all about money. He did say they can steal your identity. So I suggest Lifelock or some other identity theft company that protects your identity. Susan Ormann also has a program that helps with identity theft.

Big lesson learned...loneliness is not worth the risk of chatting with someone you have never met.

As any one played Adelbert Robert, we started playing WFF on the 10th of Dec 2018, we were chatting for a few nights, he wanted me to download google hangout, I had the sob story of his deceased wife and his daughter in America with his daughter.

He also worked on an oil rig in the bouri field. Well I am an educated woman so I checked out the oil rig story as he wanted me to pay over £4000 so I could get him off the rig and I had 2 different birthday dates, one minute he had a son and daughter, and we are still chatting and I received an email from the so called company he works for requesting more of my personal details. I haven’t given him anything, and I forwarded the email to a police friend of mine who verified it was fraud.

The profile picture is very charming of a good looking man but I am sure that this poor man has no idea someone as stole his identity.

We continued to chat for months. (by then I had got wise to their demands). I Never gave any information about my family, any personal details. In the end I blocked him from words with friends and hangouts.

Since then I have had a few scammers. Felix Apin, Steven Smiles, George Yoland (aka Jay McHugh). Through blocking them from WWF and hangouts and not accepting any new players.
I felt free from these idiots until last week 27th December when Peterson Franklyn Johnson contacted me through email several times.

Byram Pascal
by: Wise2criminals

Byram Pascal is the name being used by the person that I believe is taking advantage of my mother's kind heart. He says he works on an oil rig off off Texas and has been there since August. He says he lives in Ohio when not on this oil rig. He's asked for money in the form of Amazon and Itunes gift cards and most recently told her he was gonna send a check he needs her to cash and send him back cash.

She has tried cutting ties with him but he persists to seek her attention by giving her false hope and playing on the feelings of a woman that has been alone for many years. He just sent her fake roses as I'm sure as a way of trying to make it seem like his feelings are real and so she shouldn't listen to her family's concerns about this man taking advantage of her. He only communicates via email or texting through an app that is driven only by email address instead of a phone number. He says he can't make phone calls or video chat while on the oil rig.

I've checked different websites to see if his story is even remotely true, like if anyone with that name actually exists in a database anywhere and I don't find it, not even once, although I guess he once had a LinkedIn page that I can't find now. I've emailed him letting him know I'll be asking my police friends to check out his information but haven't received a response back from him. I sent my mother a link to this page so she can see how common this type of scam is, she sent it to him (not sure if he responded to it), but Byram, if you see this, I'm not gonna let this go until you leave my mother alone or God willing, your true identity is found out and you get what you deserve for being the low life scum you are.

Claims to be a widow with 2 sons who are training so at university. He’s working on an oil rig but owns his own real estate business as well! Very rigid beliefs and follower of god, claims he’s dropped his phone so needs money!

Claims a pipe burst and needs a lot more money, fake photos used to catch him out lots of times but he just accuses you of being picky etc and won’t let you meet up with his friends to give them stuff etc so be warned he’s very good at tracking people on wwf and I’ve watched him do this with my friend but she believed him but not anymore!!

Eric Wilmer. Claims to be Swedish, divorced with a little boy. Deceased parents. Has an import/export business in California but stuck in China on business as can’t pay demuragge for his shipment. Originally wanted $57,000 dollars but then begged for just a few hundred. Anyone had dealings with him?

Also Mark Marsh, "based" in Afghanistan, usual sob story, daughter Lisa need a laptop, he has no access to internet banking due to it being a distraction for a soldier. Excellent player though.

Henry Richmond, Baghdad, wants up to $10,000 to assist the Christians being tortured and needing a new life.

All fall in love with you - same BS. Some have good writing skills, many do not. Every one of them have wives that were killed tragically or died early of something and they are taking care of the poor child or children.

Most ask for iTunes or Amazon cards. One (Pedro) sent porno. All ask for a picture and send one in return. Most are buff - but some are older men. They seek out your weakness or soft spot and prey on that - in my case God or spiritual stuff. Only one got me - the old "it’s my daughter’s birthday!"

Even had an email account set up so I could get close to daughter who wanted to call me Ma. Of course none of it was real.

Scammer
by: Linbon

Daan Henk. Using Juan Soler photo. Widowed, raising 2 young girls, moved chat to hangouts. My first experience with a scammer. His english is poor as he apparently is Dutch. I verbally abused him on hangouts once my friend loaded the pictures he was sending me, so once he realised he was caught out he sent me his actual picture, i’d Say a 15 year old boy of Nigerian region. He proceeded to try and pull on my heart strings that his parents would disown him if they knew what he had done.

Blocked on hangouts, blocked on wwf.

He also sent me photos of Juan Soler (or a very good lookalike) that are not yet in google images.

He started messaging on Hangouts but said he could not send a photo because of high security and he says he is 57ys, born in Denmark but was nationalised in US at 5yrs old, A past love broke his heart 8 yrs ago and robbed him of $78000.00.

He never once intimated he needed money, and was very convincing. An ok sounding guy until I mentioned I had a good friend in special forces who always looked out for me and then I heard nothing more.

Changing Settings
by: Anonymous

FYI I changed my settings, but scammers still find me. I think it is because my "username" is on their list. So you might want to change settings & your username.

FYI if they have sent you a chat all they have to do is ask for a data request which reveals all their chats & the username of people they have chatted with, even if they were blocked & your new username carries over. So it is hard to hide from these creeps.

Follow up to my 11/2 post
by: CJ

I posted on 11/2 about how I strung along a scammer and then blasted him which resulted in HIM blocking me. I wrote that I went onto the page of one of my kids and found him there and we were in the midst of two more games. Result of THAT was that he used the same name (Mark Ferguson, although his WWF name is Fergunson Mark), same "I'm in Guyana currently working in high sea", same daughter, Mary, etc.

Only difference is that he took 10 years off of his age. Long story short is that he tried the same crap with me again about Hangouts/sending money. Backtracking a bit...at one point, he had asked what I do for a living. I gave a very vague answer that I worked for the government was was not allowed to discuss my job. When I started to tire of the attempted scam on his end, I told him that the governmental job I had was that I worked in cyber security and my job was to catch scammers online and after I wrote about "my job", I ended it by writing, "Isn't it cool that I get to catch the bad guys? Why, I have several new IP addresses to turn over as I type!"

NEVER did I say that one was of his and never did I imply that I suspected he was a scammer. However, I was blocked again in less than 3 minutes after I messaged that to him.

Final story is that I found him again but this time, claimed to be from Bolivia and wrote in Spanish to him. He replied back...in Spanish. I ended up saying I wanted to practice my English so we wrote English. SAME crap again from him except that he told me that he wants to marry me on 12/16 and is breaking his contract to come to my country. I started to get bored so I didn't reply for two days...and now he's gone again but, this time, took his Mark Ferguson/Fergunson Mark account with him as I had two friends try to find him and he's at least on haitus, if not gone.

BTW this 3rd time, he also told me that he has an alias he uses of Michael Sunshine. I had found that page on FB but now it's gone, too. I DID report him the two prior times so I don't know if that's why he's MIA now or not but I know he didnt block me or my friends would have still been able to find his page(s).

Spotting a scammer
by: Anonymous

To the one who asked why women sends photos to these men. FYI these scammers get your photo from your profile photo on WWFs. Yes they can snip your photo from your profile picture. So you don't even have to send them your photo.

Also, some women do not realize they are being scammed their first time dealing with these type of scammers. I know several women who thought the romance was for real. The scammers ask for photos way before they ask for money.

Once you have been scammed you won't ever fall for it again. But there is always the first time. I am hoping our posts prevents others from falling victim to their scams. I don't want to judge, just want to help prevent more scams.

I also got in contact with their government since I had real information. They had no idea who they were dealing with. A d.c. number should have made them think twice but they are stupid.

Now when you report I go back and try to find their profile and copy and put it on instagram and add every government office and add scam alert, And include wwf2 also. People have been picking up on this and becoming more aware because I am seeing posts all the time so the scammers are getting desperate.

Do Scammers Work Alone?
by: Anonymous

In reference to scammers working solo. I do not believe they do. When I blocked my scammer and disconnected my cell phone number, and my scammer came back in a new profile. I blocked that profile. Then a profile for his daughter requested a game with me in WWFs. I figured out it was her. Now I understand this could have been the same scammer...however, it did happen.

After I blocked her, I had numerous men request WWFs games with me. These men requested my cell phone number, e-mail address, my facebook account to send messages via Messenger, and any other social media accounts I might have had. Of course, I did not give any of this information out since I had been burned once before. But I can at least say there was one female and four other males that attempted to get into my social profile.

You wonder why? Because I believe my scammer was going to blackmail me via social media to ruin my professional life. Long story short, I took my facebook and WWFs account down totally. To be honest, I was scared. I definitely felt stalked via WWFs.

I believe these scammers use networks to achieve the end of their means. They might not belong to an organization to commit their crimes, but I do believe they work together via networks. I also feel like they keep a journal about each and every one of their victims and pass this information on to their network buddies. Oh, the stories I could tell you all. Please be careful.

Oh, yes...the photos you send them...they use photo shop and put your photo on pictures of a naked female or male (if you are male) body to blackmail you. Also, they can get your photo off of your WWFs profile. I suggest you do not use your photo on your profile. Just my suggestion.

Romance Scammers - Accent on Voice
by: Anonymous

Since May 2018 I have talked to 6 different scammers. All 6 had Nigerian accents. Back in June my 1st video voice shocked me. The scammer had a photo cut out of cardboard with the photo of the person standing whom he was impersonating in the video. His voice had an accent.I knew then he was fake. At this time, he had not requested any money.

My scammers who called thru Google Voice or Hangouts are Anderson Wood, Thomas Jeff, John Casper, Andrew Sylvain, Morris Donte, & Stephene Wayne. They all have accents. I believe to he Nigerian accents.

I had a lot who never called. Benjamin Good, David Sumadi, Good God Ricco, Rupert Graham, Morrison Jackson, John Church...there were more but I am drawing a blank right now.

Just beware. They all want to chat outside of WWFs. They are single men with children. They are engineers away from home on contract or are leaving home on contract soon. They will romance you, steal your heart & your money if you let them. Block them. It is the safest way.

I called him a liar, told him my friend has a lot of money and is sending someone to hurt him. I said the FBI, adult protective services & my family in law enforcement is after him. While the message was in my cue the last part of my message where my friend was sending someone disappeared. I retyped it and it disappeared again.

Strangely all the men were widowers, with a child and working for various oil companies. I thought this was strange so checked and found this forum. All the scammers asked which social media I used as their work prevented them from playing games on a regular basis. I did not bite as am happily married.

Response to ITUNES cards

In response to scammers not working for large organizations. Please go to Scam haters United. They explain the networks behind these scammers. Organized romance scammers exist.

Romance scammers do work for large networks. Granted, romance scammers could be individuals. However, most scammers work for large organizations.

A lot of information can be derived from your email address, cell number & photos. Clicking on a link in an email could put your computer at risk. Most cell phone numbers tell your location & photos have a GPS location embedded.

Romance scammers are dangerous. My friend received a death threat, which she turned over to authorities. If you want to believe these scammers are harmless go ahead & believe it. However, records indicate differently. Do your own research & you will find out the truth.

Some romance schemes use credit card & financial info you provide. Some blackmail you if you do sexual chats. Some want Itune cards. Some want your cell number, which they can derive a lot of information about you from. Some want email addresses. I read where your email address is used to send emails to you so they can control your computer. Just be careful. These scammers are professionals & the networks they work for are not harmless.

Apparently only after a few chats I am the love of his life and as soon as he ends the job in UK, he is coming straight to me, even though he does not know me and allegedly has a daughter he has custody of in Michigan. His wife left him 6 years ago for someone else and abandoned him and his daughter. During these chats, I am thinking how do you love someone so much that you just met? His response was "love doesn't know a time it is in the heart..."

AT first I was like yea this is strange, but then I started receiving other requests to play with the similar background stories. This one guy asked me if I dated on line and I said no, and then he asked me if I met any other men from the oil rigs? I began to tell him about all these requests I received and asked him do you know why so many requests? He immediately blocked me (THIS WAS NOT DAVID WILLIAMS). I think it was something Kelly.

My question to the group to ease my mind and my suspicion, is DAVID WILLIAMS a scammer and has anyone heard of him or from him?

Any responses would be appreciated.

Response to Why they Scam
by: Anonymous

I believe my scammer is not coming clean because he is under so much pressure from the organization he works for. When you explained how your scammer was kicked out onto the streets, it hit home. My scammer won't confess because he needs to keep scamming in order to survive.

I, too, fell in love with my scammer, whom I have played WWFs since June 2018. I did not lose any money, but I did lose my heart.

I wish he would just tell me the truth like your scammer did. I would still be his friend. But he is under a lot of pressure. Plus, I don't think he really cares about me. He just cares about my money.

Thanks for the information.

Response to Why do they scam
by: Anonymous

This is my third time writing to this site. I read it every day. I was taken in by a scammer in Apr of 2018. Actually fell in love. Thank God I only lost $50 in money before my children showed me this site and convinced me. I wasn't easy to convince! The psychological damage was much worse than the monetary damage!

After I found out I played along. After awhile I got tired of that, so I told him I was tired of playing, but also told him I didn't care who he was or what color he was, I loved him anyway, and God loved him also. After going round and round with him, he wasn't happy with me, but he opened up to me, telling me he was black and in Nigeria.

I still confessed to love him (with the love of God..NOT in love with him). He told me to just leave him alone, but when I asked if we could be Friends, he agreed. I also am not condoning what they do, but he is in his twenties, trying to keep food in his belly. He sent me a picture of himself. He got kicked out on the street for telling me the truth, and told me he hates doing what he does. They get a small percentage of what anybody sends and very little to eat.

I could go on and on about this, but even though I hate what they do, they are Gods children, and I, personally, have to feel sorry for them!

So, after all that, Ladies(and gentlemen), DONT fall prey to them!

THEY ARE SCAMMERS!!

Scammers language
by: Anonymous

We all know the words these scammers use such as honey, my dear, my queen, my love, my lovely woman etc. They don’t use these words to scam us, this is how they talk normally.

Many of us are getting too wrapped up in this, overthinking who they are. I don’t believe they are following us on Words. Once they see we are a dead end they forget about us and move on to someone else. They don’t develop attachment to us. We might like to think so but they don’t.

Why do they scam
by: Anonymous

Well I have been dealing with these guys since January 2018 and have been reading posts here since March. Thank goodness for this site. I have to say that we are all reading too much into who some of these scammers are and what they are doing. There might be some huge syndicate behind some of these scammers but for some of them it’s just a means to buy food.

That does not make this scamming right nor is it an excuse for their behavior. Many of the young Nigerian men are in their 20’s and 30’s and are living in poverty with no jobs available to them and little food to eat. The Nigerian government does not care about its youth; it only cares about lining their own pockets and taking care of their own families. While government officials live in mansions with several cars, much of Nigeria’s youth lives below the poverty level with little or no electricity and only rice and beans to eat once a day.

Again, this is not an excuse to scam others for money. Since I have learned this, I have approached these guys in a different way. It is amazing how they respond to someone who shows a real interest in their lives and shows them empathy.

I did have 2 scammers whom I believe were working together. They used a secret code word I had given to one of them, which I thought was odd.

Also, one scammer in the middle of our conversation asked me to call him the same name of endearment that I was asked to call the other scammer so same person? Or two working together. I am not sure.

I find the comment on Manfredgang11 very interesting. I have been playing WWFs with Greg01243 since May 2018. Gave me the full line & I fell for it. He cleaned out my savings and wanted more. I never imaged some like him existed. I am almost a vegetable for what he did. I reported him to local law & FBI.

I have a friend with a lot of money & he put a contact on him to break his legs & cut off his ear. I am not a person of violence, but he stripped me of my life & wanted more. I told him my friend had someone looking for him and the outcome. I told him this is a terrorist threat and you can report me to the FBI. He disappeared about two weeks ago.

I do not believe in violence but I cannot eat, sleep or function. I cannot pay my bills or other expenses. I cry or hyperventilate and cannot control it. They all should reap what they sow. My point is they are probably the same person as well. I believe there is also another one I have been watching. I will not be laid to rest until I stop as many of these sob as I can.

This is an alias of a known "dating scammer" called Roland Smith (believed to be from Nigeria).

Harley is still currently on WWF but obviously busy as his profile is registered as playing maximum games.

Plays French, UK & USA. Claims to be older gentleman, widower, loves travel, lives in California with daughter having moved from Germany.

I got suspicious almost immediately due to very personal questions he asked re relationship etc. stopped relying and played out game.

I discovered Yesterday when researching "David Williams" that "Harley" is also a known scammer.

He was still on my list(hence know playing maxed out) and promptly reported him via "report abuse" for impersonation : name, chat and photo.

Don't know if it anything will be done about it but I felt better!

Also reported David Williams (verified & known to authorities serial scammer) at same time.

Dave Williams
by: Anonymous

Just dealt with Dave Williams. Was pre alerted by my actual friend who had just encountered him with the whole "How old are you my dear?" spiel. He suddenly decided to pop up on my gamers list. I was interested to see how far he would go. The questions are repetitive & even tho I made it very clear I wasn't giving any info he kept asking the same things over again. I suggest they are interacting with multiple players at once, use word cheat & are only interested in getting personal info. Occupation, married, age, email address,etc. but with a view to extract more.

"Dave" didn't even react when I messaged him that I knew it was a scam & I was putting his name on the warning page. Just repeated questions interspersed with "you sound like a good woman" type comments. I asked which part of Nigeria he was from....he said he'd already told me where he was from (I made sure I asked questions about him rather than giving my info) -Florida. I asked him who won the mid term elections (still under recount) and told him I'd wait. Response- "ok". This am no sign he was ever in existence. Think they may have an automated hack in place. Cheers!.

New way to Scam on WWFs
by: Anonymous

After the usual Hi, how are you blah blah blah he is now telling me how easily and quickly I can make money with Bitcoin Mining. All I have to do is give him $5000 and that will easily and quickly turn into $28,000. Nice try :-)

With another scammer I told him I was an attorney and specialized in fraud cases for the government - he quickly vanished and I can't even see that he ever played a game with me - puff, he's invisible.

How do they do that? It doesn't show up on my completed games as declined or resigned like most of them do. Nothing shows up with his game.

Does that mean he blocked me?

Wanted my phone number to text. It gets so annoying after awhile that I've been declining almost every game request. Why are there SO MANY lately. I don't remember this happening before; it's only been in the past few months (for me anyway).

I must have struck a cord with him because he suddenly started spilling his guts. He told me he wasn’t a Surgeon based in Iran that it was all a lie. He said he was from Nigeria and couldn’t scam me because I was so nice and always asking how he was.

He said it’s a big thing there and any new players are most likely scammers. He also said to just play friends and don’t ever give money. I thanked him for being honest and changed my settings to only friend.

Peter Bruster Scammer on WWF and Hangouts
by: Stephanie

A guy saying his name is Peter Bruster started chatting with me on Words With Friends and then asked if I could chat on Hangouts. His picture matched a profile pic with the same name on Facebook. The guy said he was a windower and lived in Albany. He claimed to be an architect for Gandhi Engineering in NYC. He told me he would be leaving soon for Kuwait for work.

It took about a week or so before he asked for a favor to buy him a $100 Steam Wallet gift card. I always thought his grammar and written language didn’t seem like it was from someone whose first language was English but he said he was Swiss American.

He called me Dear all the time and said he was 51. When he asked for the gift card I knew he was a scammer and confronted him. He got very offended and I blocked him.

Some of these posts make me sad
by: CJ

I was looking for info about WWF scams because I had someone try to scam me last week. According to WWF, he just joined on 10/20/18 so the likelihood is high that he had another account/name and created a new one on 10/20.

Anyhow, the first tip was that he told me that I am so beautiful. Interesting, as my profile picture is of my two sons and I am not in the photo. Second was the many grammatical errors and poor sentence composition, i.e. "I am currently in Guyana working in high sea". From the VERY beginning, I knew he (?) was trying to scam me. However, I played along...or so he thought.

I replied with incorrect answers regarding my age/job/pretty much everything...but I acted interested. It didn't take long before he asked me to go either onto Hangouts or use What's App and I played dumb like I didn't know what they were (and even had fun referring to "What's App" as "Who Dis?") After I wouldn't go on to Hangouts, THEN the messages were telling me how much he loved me, how comfortable he felt with me, how badly his darling daughter Mary needed a mother figure, yada, yada, yada. I played right along.

After literally only a couple of days, poor Mary fell down a flight of stairs while with her Nanny and the mean ol' UK doctor wanted $2000 before he would treat her and the nanny only had $500. Of course, he promised to repay the money...with interest. My comment back was something along the lines of, "While I am sorry to hear about your darling daughter, I am glad that you told me about this because I know that there are people on the Internet who try to scam others but since you're referencing a CHILD, I know that you're sincere because you are way too wonderful to ever exploit a child!" and I offered to "send" him $5000 to cover all expenses.

The catch was that he had to give me a phone number where I could call him. Of course, no # and he insisted that I use Hangouts. This went on for two days and then he suddenly forgot all about poor ol' Mary and continued telling me how much he loves me. Of course, I loved him back--ha ha. After a couple more days of all of the "I love you"s from him, he then started posting poetry/quoting Ronald and Nancy Reagan, etc--an the poorly constructed sentences started looking MUCH better.

A simple cut and paste of the first 7-8 words of a sentence took me to MULTIPLE sites where there are "love letters" written for scammers to cut and paste and send to their victims. Ladies, if someone goes from improperly constructing a sentence to crafting love letters to you, CHECK THE LETTERS!! Seriously--cut/paste the first few words and see if it pulls up the sentence verbatim. My money says it will.

Anyhow, after a few more days of his cut/pasted love letters, where I was continuing to profess my undying love right back to him, I told him I had enough, knew he was a scammer, completely called him out on his BS and the end result was hilarious--HE blocked ME.

I love it!! Just for fun, I found him while using one of my children's accounts (that's how I knew I was blocked) and I started a game with him. We are currently playing two more games, and he's just now starting to get to the whole "Let's go to Hangouts!" routine and I suspect that darling Mary is going to be hurt again real soon and be in need of some medical attention.

Can't wait because my goal is to see if I can string him along enough to be blocked again. :-) ONLY difference in his story now vs on my other account is that he was 58 last week (and had a birthday, too) and is 48 this week. Other than that, same name/same photo. Anyhow, I am rather proud of myself for stringing a scammer along so well that he's now running from me. :-) Ahhh, good times.

BTW--my subject line about some posts making me sad is because so many females appear to have genuinely fallen for some of these parasites.

Ladies, PLEASE do yourself a favor and don't fall for it! And if you're impressed by the sweet talk, Google the sentiments--bet you anything that you're going to see that they are copying/pasting comments that are widely attributed to scammers. And, jeez, stop giving out your private info/Hangout info/gmail accounts. That's just nuts.

Never let your guard down
by: Anonymous

I am writing to let you know that I was dumb enough to let my guard down with one of these scammers. I thought he was different from everyone else's scammers in that he didn't ask me for anything. He only asked me to give my e-mail address (which I have not and will not do), and to go to Hang-out (which I will not do).

I told him that I would not chat with him any longer. He kept professing his love for me, and I told him I wasn't interested because I was happily married. This went on for several months. I told him that I was only interested in being a pal on the game. I couldn't handle it anymore, so I stopped accepting games from him and stopped chatting with him.

A couple of weeks later, I decided that I would start back playing him and chatting with him. He asked me why I stopped, but I said nothing. I thought everything was good until today. I spent a couple of hours chatting with him on words with friends and he didn't profess his love...which was good, and he asked me where our other chats were, which I thought was weird.

I told him I didn't know. Then he started asking me personal questions again, which most of those I deflected. Asked me what my religion was and I told him, and asked him for his and he said Catholic.

Then it hit me that he was phishing/fishing for details about me to use against me. Then the next thing he asked was if I would send him iTunes cards to his e-mail address.

Then it hit me that he was a scammer the whole time. I wrote him back and told him that this was the very reason I am done chatting with anyone on Words with Friends (except my real friends). He later wrote me back and told me that I hurt his feelings calling him a scammer. That he legit needed the iTunes card because he was on an oil rig and couldn't get it himself and he would pay me back. Oh...please. I have heard that before. Not happening.

So, this is my message for today. Do not let your guard down. Only chat with people you know. Don't make the same mistake letting these crazy people back in.

As someone that reads this blog every day to see what everyone is saying about this, we should stand together and put an end to these scammers on Words with Friends.

So, what I need to know is how can we do that? What can we do to report these people and keep them off all of these games?

Any advice is appreciated.

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

To everyone male & female who are being scammed by a romance scammer. These scammers are real. You will never find out the real face behind their stolen photo they are using. These scammers are professional criminals.

Money laundering is one of their largest criminal acts they want you to do. They need your name & social security number to throw their stolen money into your name in a financial instition. As soon as the cash hits your financial institution in your account you are responsible for the taxes & the money that magically appeared & quickly disappears.

People please do not set up any financial accounts for these jokers to wire you money. It is a scam & a crime. Protect your financial status & emotions by blocking these jerks & not communicating with them.

Few months since I had my last encounter. This one was DAMIAN MOORE. Must add, Profile photo was stunning!! Usual questions - married - kids - where do you live, and what do you do for a job. Said I trained dogs, part time. No comment. Was asked 2/3 times did I chat on hangouts etc. Was an International Engineer on oil rig- off Norway. Mom was a Dane.

Didn't realize I was "having a lend of him" (Aussie term) re my conversation, and told me I was very weird for a Lady. Then I became a "clown" & an "academia" because I questioned his phraseology. Also mentioned to him, that Denmark would eventually have an Aussie Queen, our Mary.

With that, he vanished!!! No trace of him whatsoever. Obviously they don't realize that women can see through all this rubbish! Keeps retired minds active.

Hi. I have been speaking to this guy, but another contractor. Says he's working in California, lost his wife 5 years ago and has an 8 year old daughter. There was a fatal accident on the site where he works, 1 dead and 4 injured.

Had to spend funds to pay off these guys as they didn't have insurance. Well, all contractors should provide insurance for all their workers.
Asked for donations for the deceased's family.
Sent a minimal amount which needed to be paid to a Anna Klino.

Also have his phone no. 001 313 606 9519, a land line. Next I think, he's asking for help to pay his taxes, the company he works for is based in China, but will not pay him until he has paid the taxes.

Guess what - hes worth millions, as if.!!!!
Said all his funds went to pay off the guys that were injured. Now he is suspended from his contract because he can't pay his taxes. Keeps hassling for money, but he ain't getting a penny off me.

He says I don't love him because I won't help him. Well this guy needs help. The other thing, checked about the accident, there wasn't one. Thank God I've got family in Los Angelos to check it.

I'm giving this guy the runaround now. He needs to get help from the LAPD, and spend time in one of their luxury cells for indefinitely.

Al scammers

It’s taken me 10 months to get rid of these scammers on WWF. The last was Kelvin Adamik. He scammed in a different way to the rest. He was divorced from his wife. He was Polish living in Springfield Colorado USA.

He was unemployed. All he wanted from me was to talk about nothing. But he constantly asked for my phone no. To be able to talk to me. Which by the way I refused.

After my long episode with Peterson Franklyn Johnson he was my first scammer. The usual story, after I blocked him. Virtually the next day Felix Apin was pestering for my attention. He messed me up nd he played mind games with me and several other players who were all women of a certain age. Fortunately he was blocked by many of us together.

Now I have turned off accepting any new players. And playing my original friends with a few safe ones that have been hurt.

I have been chatting with John Michael for over a month. Started calling me dear, sweetheart and his queen right away. Claims he is divorced with a 15 year old son who lives with his mother in Texas. He also works on a rig out in the ocean and has to get there by copter.

Last week he said he was in dire need of money to pay his son's tuition and pleaded with me to help him. He e-mailed me his wife's account number which I took to the bank to check it out. It was a an actual account with the name he gave for her but also had the name John on the account. I asked him to call me as I had questions. When he called he had a very heavy accent that didn't go with the picture shown.

I didn't send her the money and he was very irritated. Blocked him on WWF and from my phone. Trying to get fix it so he doesn't have access to my e-mail. Should have know as his grammar was horrible. Just be careful as he is very convincing.

John Church - Lifaisy7

Ladies, John Church was my scammer. I fell for this guy head over heals. Very rich ocean geology engineer who owns a house in Georgetown, Texas. Has a daughter. Currently working in Aberdeen Scotland on an oil rig in the ocean. He is going to take care of me for the rest of my life. Rescue me...

He charms you, romances you, sends you beautiful love songs, sends you beautiful pictures wishing you a good day. Chats with you throughout the day. However....he becomes very whiny, and very dependent on you later on as he will need help with a piece of equipment that breaks down on the rig. He will also need you to set up a financial account in your name so he can transfer foreign money he receives from a contract back into the States. (Money Laundering is what this is called). No way... BLOCKED him. He broke my heart.

Also, during one chat he mentioned traveling through Turkey out of no where?? I think he was chatting with another woman and posted that comment in my queue.. I called him out on it...

Romance Scammers

I was under the impression that the romance scammers were new to WWFs. However, some of the scammer profiles indicate they have been playing as far back as 2010.

So you can't really depend on when they started playing. I had one guy want to go to KIK. He wanted to exchange photos of private parts. I said no and blocked him. He started playing in 2012. A couple of other scammers have been playing since 2010. So I think they romance scammers have been with WWFs for a while, but seems to have really became active in 2017 and 2018.

Ladies please beware and do not give out any real personal information. and BLOCK, BLOCK BLOCK. Although, I have had scammers come back after me with a new profile....it is just very scary.

Interesting, he used the same language about having trust that another scammer had used on me. Anyway, he has blocked me now. So I do believe these scammers are keeping a list of names and profiles who are on to them and are blocking them.

By blocking us we are unable to see who they are playing WWFs with and cannot warn them about their scams.

I agree with the writer about scammers by anonymous that the gangs/thieves on WWFs keep a list of names/profiles that are on to them. I believe this because I used Smart Match and was matched up with a guy who had just started playing WWFs in September of this year. Before I could even play a word he had declined and blocked me.

These romance scammers are dangerous. One needs to block and report them. I also believe we should start reporting them to other sites than this one.

Used non American spelling on several words (mum, honour) and was indignant when I questioned him. He "fell in love" with me at lightening speed, started talking about eloping and then traveling the world after he retired. I feel like such a fool for talking with him!

Add a scammer using the name Rex Hudson, photos from a florist, in Georgia to the list!. He works on an oil platform servicing equipment. Same dead wife, daughter, responsible for teen granddaughter, his parents long gone.

He likes honest woman with Christian values, and an old fashioned wife. Said he lived in London which changed to Colorado when he remembered he had a pet goat and dogs when I asked where in London did he keep his goat so he needed to live in a house near Denver and have a Gardner take care of the critters and care for the gardens especially his favorite roses.

So he is now in Colorado. Aha! Told him that I was flying to Denver & wanted to know if I could borrow his car to drive to Durango. He told that he loaned his car to a friend and that I should take a taxi from the airport to there! He no more knew where I needed to go in Colorado than the man in the moon.

Totally fake from the get-go.

He wanted to restart after retiring. We started using Viber instead. He called me eventually and his accent to me didn't match up with the pictures he sent me.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He started to convince me that we were meant to be together. However, it just so "happened" that he was going to leave for China soon. As soon as he left, his "daughter" started emailing me. Her birthday just happened to be this weekend.

I asked her what she wanted. IPhoneX. Haha! I chatted with her dad and he tried to tell me he would pay me back when he got back.

Regarding Christopher Neuer7 finding you again after you blocked him. Yes. This happened to me with a different scammer. And yes, my scammer did come back as a different profile name but the same picture. So I knew it was him.

This approach is what I call stalking and it scared the living daylights out of me. Bottom line, I cancelled my WWFs account and started over with a different profile and with a profile picture that was non female specific.

So far, I have not been approached by scammers since my new profile is generic. However, I will tell you many of the WWFs players decline my requests since I have not been playing WWFs very long.

It just cracks me up that others I have played WWFs for years are now declining my requests but at least I have gotten to play a few games with others who are willing to take a chance on a newer profile.

I love WWFs but the Scammers had to go. Blocking them alone does not always solve the problem of the stalkers.

I have been chatting with a man who called himself John Chandler, an army career military officer from Dayton OH. He said he was stationed in Kabul Afghanistan. Been there 10 months on a special mission. Profile Picture I found out by mistake was of a retired Sgt Major Raymond F Chandler. He gave me an email address of

chandlerjohn599@gmail.com.

I never used it but checked it out, and it was not associated with anyone. Could not pull up anything on this name on the internet, except info about Raymond Chandler. Was falling for me after a couple of weeks and was very convincing. Talked about a future together after his mission was over.

He Wanted me to contact the leave dept to request leave for him but I never tried. Wanted me to request permission to call him at

usmilitaryphoningservices@consulant.com

but I never did that, and found anything consultant.com is what scammers use, and your request goes to their buddy sitting beside them. I Noticed he had started playing with other women on WWF that were popping up on my screen to play with as well, he showed to be a mutual friend.

I chatted with 5 of these women last night and several of them confirmed he was saying the same stuff to them. Before I could confront him he started blowing up my chat asking if I was asking others about him because someone told him. Needless to say he blocked me and I immediately told the 5 women he was playing with that he was a scammer.

Please do not talk to people you don’t know. I was lucky because I am skeptical by nature. I never gave info or money to this jerk, and would like to think WWF could block these people from playing with anyone.

Widowed, 62 years old, 15 year old daughter living in CA w/a Nanny. Retiring after this, his biggest contract yet.

Alas, after a month there was a fire on the rig he was on. Gulf of Mexico off of Alabama. He needed $30k to have a German expert come & fix the part. His bank account was frozen and he had to go in person to straighten it out. My rational mind knew he was bunk, but my heart would not listen. I held out hope for 3 and a half months. He started getting aggressive and accusatory.

Twitter will shut them down. We have to get any information you can from them. Even phone numbers. My search led me to a group of guys living in accre Ghana. These people are not untouchable believe that. I am just shocked how many people fall for their scams.

Thank God I am happily married. You ladies need to take action instead of just blocking them. It will help the next lonely woman not become a victim.

Same story different name

Christopher Neuer7 is his name and for months he has been trying to get my e-mail address and phone number and to come to hangout with him. Telling me how much he loves me, and how I am his beautiful queen.

I have constantly told him that I am married with children and not interested. Yet, he still writes the same love crap like we have known each other for years. I keep telling him I am not interested.

I also blocked him -- in which he went crazy and undoubtedly some how got unblocked and is back. I don't know if he started another account and came back. Talks about how he could not go on with me. He also works on an oil rig and has a son named Mark.

I love the WWF game and playing with my real life friends, but what should I do? Is there anything that can really be done to stop these people?

I would greatly appreciate any input that could be given.

Same story !
by: Anonymous

I received a game request from Davebr3245, and dont normally respond to men I dont know. His story was his father killed in a car accident when he was 14, sister died 3 weeks later. He and his mother moved to France where her friend and husband lived. The husband raised "Dave" and taught him his business and he lived in France for 20 years. He has a 16 year old daughter in boarding school, and his wife and unborn child were killed in an accident 5 years ago. He is a supervisor for Golden Marine in the Gulf of Mexico and will be retiring soon, and loves to travel.

We started chatting on the game, then emails and then phone calls on Viber. I had suspicions about his thick French accent and wondered if this guy was a Nigerian scammer so asked that we video chat. He did start a video chat, and yes it was the good looking man in the photo, but the video lasted just seconds before we were disconnected.

He sent me a love song and was calling me dear and very attentive. I had my daughter in law do some research and I would say I was shocked, but I am not. I gave him my email address and phone number but will never part with personal info again, and hope he goes away.

I told him he was busted and will not answer his texts or calls.

Ladies Beware!!!

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

When I was chatting with one scammer, whom I felt wanted to blackmail me because he knew I was married, I had several different scammers send me friend requests.

Out of these different scammers, one wanted to friend me on facebook. One wanted to talk to me through messenger. One demanded my cell phone number. It just seemed that these 3 different scammers were the same person trying to access my friend list through Facebook and messenger and my location based off my cell phone number.

I have been told that anyone can tell your location from your cell phone number, which pings your location, so please do not give out your real cell phone number and do not friend them on Facebook. I actually believe he would have posted our conversations on Facebook if I had a Facebook account and/or had added these other two scammers up on Facebook or messenger.

Tricky little devils, these scammers can be.

BEWARE!
