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.

Beware Noelle.N.Daniel
by: Anonymous

Same song-clever. Petroleum engineer from Oregon working in Scotland. Slight accent since he was originally from Denmark. Which explained grammatical issues. Told me I had beautiful smile and even dreamed about me! Wanted to connect on Google hangouts within a couple days. Amazingly someone named Tom Lawrence appeared during a lightning challenge with the same pic!! Reported his ass to WWF as abuse.

Unbelievable and so glad I found this site so I understand how huge this problem is, I won’t be accepting anymore games, don’t mind some general chat but it is too much when they ask for your phone number. Yes the same as others have highlighted widow, children, hangouts, blocked before they could ask for money

Wouldn’t it be nice
by: Anonymous

Wouldn’t it be nice to really have an attentive suitor who really cared about you other than what type of monetary means they can derive from you.

They reel you in & in a real love relationship one would be very eager to assist with their needs financially, emotionally, & sexually. The only thing that snapped sense into my mind is the fact I had never met this scammer in person. They were not real even tho in my mind I so wanted them to be real. To really care. But common sense prevailed. It was all about Itune cards for the children, credit card numbers, bank accounts, bitcoin investments, etc. it never stopped.

I finally researched WWFs scammers & found this website. Adios to John Church.

Another scammer
by: Anonymous

John William. Downloaded the app Image search. I searched his words profile picture. He is using some guys Instagram photo.

Says he’s from Spain now living in San Antonio TX. Son is in boarding school in Spain. Parents were killed when he was 16. Never mentions friends or family when we chat in hangouts.
Will say he’s a good Christian man working as a drilling engineer. He even sent me a fake address. It was a 2 million dollar mansion. I looked up the tax records and of course the home is not in his name.

He has asked for an Itunes card and I told him he is a grown man and can buy his own card. He just loved me saying that to him.

So laughable
by: Anonymous

I started to get requests to play games. I thought maybe the people on my teams in Lightning Round were challenging me but nope every one of them has a sad story. Their English is terrible, like they're reading out of a "popular english sayings" tour guide booklet. Wife and child died in car accident, wife died in childbirth, they are all working out in the middle of nowhere on a rig, all ask where you live, then "so what do you do for a living?" When you ask where they live, it's always that they're from somewhere else but now living in another place.

THEN, when you ask where they went to high school, it starts to get crazy. Always ask if I'm "happily married with kids." hahaha. Does it make a difference if "happily"? LOL As soon as I start asking them questions, guess what? They resign from the game! I'm going to start saying I work for the FBI !! That'll make things end more quickly!

Action to take to stop scammers
by: CherieC

Scamming is illegal and often harmful. Action: I have begun to email the advertisers saying WWF is rife with scammers. That Wwf need better checks and balances at sign on. Better prevention strategies.

Their company is at reputational risk and risk of losing customers.

Recommendation: don't use this unsafe e-platform and or contact Zyngawf and urge them to improve.
If we all did this once it would get through to Zynga management that we've had enough of this.

Another widowed man who lost his wife in some horrific incident. He has a daughter in school. He works as independent contractor on oil rig from Florida. Speaks Kings English but has never said his citizenship. Has never asked for money but wants to meet. I said only with my six foot tall warrior of a husband present. So then he said ‘alaye’. I think that’s the one people said to use if you suspect a scammer. So I said is that a soup? Because we were talking about soup. He said it was a Jamaican soup. So then I said bull. So are you saying you are a scammer so now I can report you. And poof. Like that he blocked me.

My words with friends scammer is from Germany, lives in Michigan but works on an oil rig in the UK as an underwater welder. His 10 year old son Daniel is at home with the nanny. Wife died in a tragic accident when she was going to visit her parents. He talks in poetry and sends corny memes or videos. He has professed his love to me within a couple weeks and I'm pretty sure he wants to marry me when he returns to the states. LOL

He has been bugging me to get Hangouts and a gmail and to give him my address so he can send me a "surprise". I knew he was a scammer from day one but decided to play around with him to waste his time (lying about everything I tell him). I'm waiting for the right time to ask HIM for a gift card. LOL

The first claims to be Norwegian American from New Jersey but an independent oil contractor off Louisiana coast. The second says he is a Croatian American MD aboard a UN ship near Syria who lives in Idaho. Wanted to ‘send’ me money. Huge amount. The third says he is from France. Lives in Florida but is an oil engineer working in Jackson Mississippi. All say they are widowed. All profess feelings despite me talking nonstop about kids and husband. I made up 6 of the 10 kids. Give them wild stories. None have asked for money. Yet.

But the one wanted me to bring his money into US. All have kids in boarding schools etc. why can’t WWF clean this up. I have talked to men who are not scammers. They never get personal they just say great word good game. Etc.

Wow, this guy is good. 50, 2 daughters called Sabrina and Tracy. He's a petroleum geologist, lives in Florida. Daughters live in California with his mum, which is where he lived until his wife died when her car exploded on the way home from work 5 years. His English is VERY good, no text speech and if spells something incorrectly he quickly corrects it.

I was suspicious from the get go, requested a pic with his kids - he sent it. Asked him to take a selfie - he sent it. Asked to see him on webcam and he did it! How you may ask? The connection was poor because he was at the beach, but for about 10 seconds I saw the guy in the pic. However, when I thought about it later, I remembered that he was talking on the video chat, but, I couldn't see his mouth. My suspicions reared their head again.

I asked to see him again on webchat and he refused, but the next thing he sent a pic of him holding a piece of paper with my name on! It was only the fact that talking on the phone via whatsapp and asking about his kids that he slipped up, he gave me different ages and the eldest became the youngest.

Eventually he admitted it was a lie and blocked me. I consider myself to be very savvy and I'm always on guard with 'strangers', but this guy was a professional. I found a great app on Android called Fake image detector. Pop the pic into that and it will show you any areas where the image has been photoshopped.

Sure enough, the image with him holding the paper with my name on had been photoshopped, albeit, very well. If anyone wants pics, his number etc please let me know. Vile people.

Lately my account has been bombarded by requests from the same widow story same bad English always from one place but living in some exotic location. I really wish zynga would take a more proactive stance other than be respectable to others. It’s ruining the game.

Just check their statistics
by: Anonymous

One easy way to tell a scammer is by looking at their game statistics. Almost all have low wins, low high games and very low average scores. Low average score indicates games ended early. I just wish there was some way to look at the stats of someone before accepting the game.

Its getting ridiculous. There are so many that just keep coming back using different names. The stories are all basically the same. I can't believe people really fall for this. Like others below, I will sometimes string them along just to waste their time.

(Love the Texas Roadhouse and Applebee posts below!) LOL

Watch out for Marty75. He comes off as a nice guy with a good sense of humor. Talks about his kids a lot. Lives in Australia and will happily send you pics and videos if you friend him on Instagram. But if you look at his numbers on WWF you will see he is playing this game constantly. He is also talking to multiple women at the same time. He’s very smooth but everything he’s saying to you he is saying to multiple women.

Plus, he’s married!! Don’t know if the end result would be eventually asking for money. I blocked him as soon as I realized what he was up to.

Scott Alexander and Michael Thompson
by: Anonymous

Same deal with these two losers. Alexander claims to be a 50 y.o. soldier on a UN Peacekeeping mission in Syria. Daughter in boarding school in Georgia, widowed (wife died in childbirth), blah, blah, blah.

Poor grammar with clear indications he is not a native English speaker, fake photo -- the whole nine yards.

Took a whole 2 days to profess love and offer a proposal (lucky me)! Immediately wanted to switch correspondence to private email, hangouts, etc.

Played along for a little bit, but got progressively more irritated at the BS these sub-human sh*tbags spew. Basically told him that I knew he was a scammer from the start, said he deserves to have his eyes and heart carved out with a spoon, and then fed to dogs. Also, that I hoped he and his entire village would be wiped out by a violent plague in the most painful way (along with some additional colorful language). Reported his profile to Zynga/game platform admins.

Thompson claims to be a physician (also on a UN Peacekeeping mission in Syria -- small world! Maybe he and Alexander know one another). Fake photo of an older gentleman. Immediately asked if I had kids or was happily married -- WTF?!?! Reported to game platform admin.

A third (cannot remember the name), same overall approach "Hi pretty." Called this one out pretty quickly and told him "nice stolen profile pic, 419" (which REALLY annoyed him, haha). He told me I was stupid, and to go kill myself, to which I replied "You, first! ;) "

Note: Game platform admins seem largely unmoved by the fact that they're riddled with scammers on their platform. I don't think they're doing much to proactively curb the massive influx of fake accounts with stolen photos.

Anyway, hope this helps! :)

Words of advice
by: Anonymous

I had one of these "scammers" who asked me to go to hangouts or WhatsAppp to chat outside words with friends. I said I will only use Skype. Several games later he said "I really want to chat with you more on Skype". I relented as I was going to be true to my word & we started chatting on Skype.

He was interesting talking to talk to & it was entertainment for me. I knew he was scammer, before I agreed. We chatted for couple of months with him professing his love & wanted to marry me. We chatted about all sorts of things. He finally asked me for google play cards, and I refused. We continued to chat.

He asked me for payment by Western Union several months after that. I refused again. We continue to chat and just recently he asked me for google play or iTunes cards. I refused and he got quite nasty & said all sorts of bad things to me.

I can see on how they can prey on vulnerable & lonely people, it happens to men also. They say lots of things to make you feel loved & wanted. They want to reel you in & think if you are in love with them, you would be willing to send them money. They will give you believable sob stories. Don’t send them money, purchase them goods or services or purchase google play or iTunes cards.

If they ask you personal questions give them vague answers or turn around & ask them to go 1st. Don’t give out your actual full name, home or work address. Don’t even give them your actual city:/state. Don’t give out names of your children/grandchildren. They smart ones will hunt you down and may try to steal your identity. Don’t give them bank account or credit card info.

If you want to "chat" with them outside WWF set up a new email address with a fake name & only use this email address for that purpose. Or get a google phone number & use this for texting or WhatsApp.

Don’t send them pictures, they may ask for nude pictures as well & use it against you.

I feel bad for those people who sent these "scammers" money or gift cards. I know many believe in good of people & thought these people were honest & legitimate.

If you suspect a scammer, use reverse image search, such as Yandex or TinEye. These and an Apple app called ImageSearch which searches 3 search engines. Some of them use other people’s pictures as their profile pic. My scammer actually uses his own pictures, but sets up many fake accounts. He is not even from Nigeria, but Argentinia.

Stay safe out there & keep your money for yourself. You need it more than they do.

More Scammers
by: Anonymous

A few more scammers to be aware of on Words With Friends are George Derrick (also uses just George, Geo Derrick, and other variations). He uses a picture of a professional male model/make-up artist who is quite handsome. He claimed to be Polish, works on an oil rig in the Gulf Coast, divorced with a 14 yr. old son. Wanted to chat in hangouts, professed love rather quickly, then wanted an Amazon gift card to help with business mailings. All future pictures provided were from the male models Instagram account.

Also beware of Derek Kess who claimed to be from the Netherlands, worked on an oil rig in the Persian Gulf, wife died in a horrific car crash and he had a son in boarding school in Florida. Same scenario, chat in hangouts, fell in love quickly, talked about marriage in the future then wanted a $200 iTunes card to boost his cell phone signal. Both got nervous and nasty when called out. I think George thought I was with law enforcement because he questioned who I was and blocked me.

Right now another gentleman named Larry Thomas started a chat in Words With Friends asking a lot of personal questions which I refused to answer, wanted my phone number, which I refused to give, but said he didn't mind continuing to chat on the WWF's site. He said that he's a military engineer who also buys and sells crude oil.

All of them have terrible grammar when they have to type more than one or two sentences. I changed my profile picture and so far no one else has approached me.

Yet another name of a scammer. I understand why they do it and they do it because some lonely people actually fall for it. I understand times are tough all over. However, ladies please don't be stupid. Reading these comments, they all have the same story line, fake pics and profess their love instantly.

I get a new one almost daily. I sometimes chat to waste their time in hopes someone else does not fall victim and maybe they'll learn a lesson.

This newest wanted $5000 or any gift card to help him "prepare a document to secure his contract with Clark Oil". I told him I have an Applebee's gift card but I don't think fully loaded fajitas will help him with that. He didn't get it and insisted I send it to him. Then he sent me a email address with a Nigeria Google location. When I called him out on it, he claims he was hacked but still insists on me sending it. LOL

First understand that I am in no way defending these scammers. I do however know first hand why they do it. They are 99% Nigerian men between 20 and 30 years old. They mostly come from dirt poor cities that oppress them. They can't get jobs without paying someone off. They have no food to eat and no health care where malaria is rampant like the common cold. Do not send them money but instead find a charity that helps them. Atleast your money will go to a good cause. They can not rise up against the government. That would mean jail or death. They are not in large boiler rooms, but little pockets of 2 or 3 friends. What they do is disgusting and I would never condone it. They just don't know any other way and truly believe Americans are all rich.

Has anyone played this guy. Says he's from the UK. It's interesting I décline many games from these random people and they pop up one after

What made me accept challenge was that he's been on the site a few years.

Poor grammar and English
by: Anonymous

Ladies. English is their language but they also speak pidgin English and some of them also speak their tribal native language. Their English derived from the British English. For example they don’t say I am going to the store, they say I am going to the store. That is not because they speak poor English, that derives from the British English they were taught.
If you do not want to speak with them, then do not chat. Or simply say ALAYE From the get go.

Beware of Daniel Morgan, 1964dannym1964, mdann1966
by: RobinN

This guy is from Alabama, works as a contractor in Africa. Will be there for 5 months. Starts out as a charmer, Honey, Dear, basically whatever you want he does, sends a few pictures of himself and his daughter Stacey 19; son Andrew 17. He is widowed for 5 years, wife passed away, he's ready to get married when he returns back from Africa. Wants to talk on Kik, Hangouts, any place except WWF chat. After he talks sweet things to you he starts to ask for money.

Two thousand dollars that he needs within a week due to financial issues and to send it using the bitcoin (which I had no idea how to use it) and he also stated he wanted a Vanilla card (again a card I've never heard of I had to Google them both).

As of yesterday I basically told him to move on I'm not interested; so find another person whose into scamming maybe they can help each other out by borrowing money from each other to keep their head's above water. That's about all I have at the moment.

Be vigilant keep your eyes open out there Ladies! Don't let that sweet talking man try to sweep you off your feet.

Just Weird
by: Sharon

Timothy Anderson and Webber Jackson both asked me to play WWF recently then started chatting; more Timothy than the other. My gut thought something was weird but he fits the profile of most of the scammers listed on this page. Wife died in a fatal accident, has 3 small kids, lives in California, does something with oil, wanted me to join Hangouts, lots of personal questions, wanted to exchange cell #'s and email addresses, etc., etc. Even after I told him I've been happily married for over 30 years.

I just want to play WWF as a stress reliever not have to worry about creepy people with kooky motives. Eye opener for me !

Watch out for him. Both my friend and I are playing him. Told me he is 65, told my friend he is 60. His grandson Daniel changed age slightly, 8 with me and 9 with my friend. Been raising him since his daughter and wife were in a car accident, currently looked after by nanny while he is working on contracts as marine engineer. Told my friend, wife & daughter died 11 years ago, but grandson is 9.

Friend is chatting to him through email, he says he is in India which is 9 1/2 hours from EDT., however email sent time is 4 hours ahead of USA, which puts him in Africa. He asked me for $1250 in google play cards, they work like money. I refused but we continued chatting.

Now he has asked me for $660 in Western as he got stuck in Togo Republic on way to India.
Very nice, very sweet but very sneaky in working up to ask for money.

Same person different profiles ???
by: Anonymous

It all starts out with a game request which I find odd because I’m usually at my maximum games. Within two or three words of the game, they start asking questions. I usually try not to engage, using yes or no answers. Everyone of these people are working in the oil industry in Texas, they are widowed and are raising a child.

Either these guys have no imagination, or it’s the same person using different profiles. I block them, and I’m now at the point where I am no longer accepting new games that pop up on my screen as I just decline. I get the impression that these people do not have English as a first language because of their use of the English language ie the sunset was so cute lol so, people, beware!

I never thought something as simple as words with friends would attract such creeps !

Ben morrison
by: Anonymous

Surgeon from Brooklyn, NY, but he's assumed the identity of Ben Morrison from Fort Lauderdale, FL on WWF. Born in Germany. Selfie taken from the driver's seat steering wheel. Looks distinguished in stripe dress shirt. Claims he's widowed from wife and son car accident four years ago.

I asked him if he needed help with something or $$$. He replied he is a gentleman who knows how to treat a lady and very romantic. He asked so many questions and subtly answered some questions asked of him, but with no substance answers. Especially when I asked what surgeon Ortho/Cardiac/Neuro and he never answered as if I never asked.

I called him out and told him about this website and advised that it is inappropriate to deceive by using someone else's profile photo. To then days later disclose his age of 58 and change the photo from one who looked around late 30's or early 40's to a sneaky old man photo with a blank expression.

Hopefully, he'll be honest with the next lady he tries to woo. Only been playing the single game with him for about 5 days, so he never asked for more access through other media. His grammar is not up to par. Called him out on it and he dismissed it as him being from Germany, but spells "colour"......

I have chatted with 3 very charming people on words with friends. All were in the oil business. Jack Warmwoods. Did change names. Wanted money for medical care even though he said he earned salary.

Michael Raymond- on oil rig in Istanbul. Needed $5000 to buy protective gear for his workers. If I didn’t give him the money he would lose his contract. After this job he was going to retire and find me. Nonsense!

Jack Mandylor- he was the most charming. Did not move quickly like the others. Said was from Cuba and now lives in New Orleans. Actually, fell for him. Wanted iTune card. Did not give these scammers any money.

Watch out for these persistent scammers!

George Williams: claims to be in Turkey on an oil rig. Widower whose wife died in a car crash and has a 10 year old daughter in boarding school. Looking for a beneficiary.

Alexis Cole: claims that he was born and raised in Arizona. Terrible English grammar. States that his mother is Spanish. Single, bad luck with women. Hopes to find a good woman.

Alex H. Morgan: private contractor on an oil rig in Bahrain. Has a lovely home in Los Angeles. Wife died of cancer five years ago. He states that he’s originally from Australia and married a woman from the U.K. Has a daughter named Lucy who attends medical school at Sheffield University in the U.K. Very persistent and "romantic."

Always asks if you’ve had breakfast, lunch or dinner and then asks what you ate that day. Sends videos of his oil rig. Will ask for a gift card "because (he) forgot his wallet." Professes everlasting love after two weeks on WWF.

Deleted his account or was asked to close his account on Zynga. May pop under a different name. Used Peter Schiff’s (well known financier) photo to identify himself! Be careful!

This is a response to WWF scammer. Sounds like the one I dealt with for months. Trust me he's Nigerian. Same exact story. I got smart and started switching the names around then looked on Facebook for pics. Sure enough i found the real guy. A military official so I questioned the Nigerian and he finally revealed who he really was picture and all and his real name is Joe Ochee so I sent a message to the U.S. Military officer and told him what I knew.

He thanked me and said he would try and get this guy somehow. Don't trust any of them. They are always supposedly from the USA but in another country or on board a stupid oil rig.

Scammer started conversation on WWF. He was a Marine Engineer Contractor and his wife had passed away a year ago due to Polysistic Kidney Disease. He said he was devastated, but had to be strong for his daughter. Just asked normal questions. Then started with what would you cook to impress a first date. What?? Anyhow, as two days went by and I already knew something was stinking. He wanted to go to Hangouts.

NOPE. He was alright with that so we kept playing WWF. Then he said he really liked me and would I give him email address. I had an old email address from years ago and gave him that. When he sent me email, it said Andrea Jones. WHAT?? I asked him why he would send something from a woman's email. He said he had used a work email by mistake and then sent one from David Robinson.

Then he wanted to call me SWEETHEART! WHAT?? I was laughing so hard. This was all getting so comical. Never gave any info to this clown, but I did have a back&forth "yelling" match for about 10 minutes and the last thing I said was, "I bet your mother is so proud of you....NOT".

Clifton spent many months getting friendly then asked for $5000 then $3000 the $1300 and eventually Itunes cards. No money exchanged.
Engineer, working in Greece, oil rig, 2 grandchildren in boarding school in Canada.

Widowed and daughter also deceased. He is still playing WWF. Scammer.

I feel some guys profile has been hacked.
Disturbing since he shares so many photos including the children!

Fake phone number and google email
by: Anonymous

Can someone please explain to me how to get a google phone number? I am new to all of this. I have a family member who is currently (has been for 9 months now) under some jerks spell. She actually believes this man loves her and only her.

So I decided to play wwf to see if I can be as lucky as she is LOL and snag my own millionaire. It didn’t take long.

I have a man who insists I download hangouts. I’m not comfortable with that at all. I really want to see how far he will take this before I break his little heart when I let him know that I’m on to his scam. And try to open the eyes of my family member. She has disowned all of the family and friends she has because they all tried to tell her that he wasn’t real.

I don’t let on that I know she is being scammed. I need to show her proof that "I am just as lucky as she is, and found true love".

This person has gotten close to $100K from her already. She sold her house and is living out of her car. To say that I’m worried about her is an understatement. I’m terrified for her, there is too much evil in this world.

I love how the scammers have the same cover story: Works on an oil rig, wife died, 2 kids all alone to raise them and/or they all used to live in another country and moved here with no family. The all want you to use hangouts, Kik or WhatsApp but never have Facebook. They all have poor grammar and use terms of endearment right of the bat. One even had the nerve to ask me how many "lovers" I had within a few questions.

If I have the time, I mess with them and string them along to waste their time. Like a previous post, these guys use 2 first names and always have gmail accounts. I even called one when he used other people's pics that you can do a Google image search on it. He stilled claimed it was him.

His last message to me was "I love you Mummy" and i asked him if he's sure he's not actually from West Africa. When I told him i have spoken to men from that region and he talks like them he finally blocked me. lol

Watch out for two people that I know of on WWF. Trey Brenton and Kelvin Walter/Winter. Kelvin was madly in love after two days and upset when I told him too soon. After talking for 2 weeks his machine on the rig broke and wanted me to send 4 X $50.00 Steam card so he could get a manual. I didn’t and after not hearing from him for a couple days I messaged and he wasn’t pleased with what I said and haven’t heard from him since.

Trey Brenton - after chatting with him for a month he had to go to Vietnam for work for one month, then right after that he needed to go to India for a month. I started to have feeling for this man. Then he informs me that he got paid $750,000.00 US cash for a job and is sending it to me to hold for him. The shipping co is Pathbird2express from UK (but phone number is from Nigeria).

They want me to send $1150 US for shipping to have the box delivered to me ($1520.00 Canadian) When I said I didn’t have the money he wanted me to get it were ever I can. Then once the box arrives I’m to take that money and $40,000.00 for myself. Then he sent a ring and bracelet and the value for the 2 is $50.00 Canadian.

Of course we are to get married when he gets back as he will have another $850,000.00 cash for the job he is finishing. He said he was born and raised in US but too many red flags.

What American uses words like - hit you up, chat you up, have you taken breakfast, draw closer load my loafs. He also had no idea of what a glitch is or scaredy-cat.

Good question as I talked to one guy in chat and the chat symbol was that of hangouts. This was prior to my getting hangouts and realizing what it looked like.

Just do a regular checkup on your devices and social accounts. They did access my Facebook and were virtually logging in from Jacksonville, Florida. I was unable to receive the SMS myself so I assume they were getting the code.

I think most of what they were able to do was because of the flaws with the hangout app, so on WWFI think you are okay.

Sounds as if Mr Walker is of the same group I talked to. To say these are all from Africa is to get too comfortable. They want to know where you live, get on hangouts and suck out of you as much data as they can.

They added a number to my AT&T account which also showed on my google account. Hacked my phone completely and were on my WiFi.

The police officer who responded to my call had been thru the same thing. His response to me was yes, they definitely know who you are and where you live. They patrolled my house for over a month. Thankfully I did not have a smart TV as the officer did. They backed off of him pretty quick after realizing he was an officer.

Check your login locations and also check for any other devices connected to your emails, social accounts and all. My hacker did not ask for money Guess he was just going to take it when he felt able to.

Play Along
by: Karen

The first few times I was approached by a scam artist, I would give them 3 strikes then out. I thought they were legit. Then someone referred me to this site and I have done a 180 turn-around. Lately though, I have to admit, I've enjoyed having a little fun at their expense. When they start asking for personal information (marital status, kids, profession, where I live, etc.) I say "you first".

Then when they:

a)tell me they work on an oil rig/are deployed military/surgeon;

b)tell me their wife died in a plane/car crash; and

c)have a child or two and usually their names,

I then say "you know, my daughter is with the FBI, Fraud Division and she tells me you have met 3 of the first 5 criteria of a scammer. They are gone in a flash. And I looked up the meaning of ALAYE...it means "area boy" - identifies you as one of them.

Stay alert ladies (and gents). You can immediately mute chat if they play fine and if not you haven't lost anything. And use that block/report button as it's there to make the game enjoyable for YOU!

If you think someone is a scammer, type ALAYE to him.
by: Anonymous

I read in another forum this word lets them know you are onto them or are also a scammer yourself. I tried it out and three scammers just disappeared without another word out of them. ALAYE. Try it ladies, it worked really well and made the bad guys disappear. All I want to do is play a decent honest game of Scrabble.

Talked with this scammer for a few months. I knew from the beginning he was a scammer but I played along. I was curious as to how women fell for these creeps so easily. After a few days yep, he was in love with me. Really? So we continued chatting while playing.

Red flags everywhere. Oil rig worker, single dad; he started out with two kids but I think he forgot he had told me already about a daughter as well. Types like he talks! Lol did not understand different phrases used in America. Then he changed his name which was funny as hell. What do I call you. Scammer worked for me!! Finally he wanted to know how I felt about him. Any time he would talk about love or marriage and coming to get me after his contract ended I would change the subject. So I broke down and said I love you. I didn't.

The next day he wanted me to send him money. Didn't care we are on a fixed income. Blocked his ass on the spot. Oh and I talked to him very briefly and it was the creepiest accent I have ever heard. Definitely not from Texas!! Lol

Do not fall for these scammers. Keep your money in your own bank acct. They will take whatever they can and not care one bit about you.

Like I said this was an experiment on my part. I can see how people would ignore all the red flags waving thinking these scammers really love you but they don't. They love the money they can scam from you.

Morris Dean & Victor Carr
by: Anonymous

Morris presented himself as a art dealer. Total Con. Months of my life wasted. Next person was Victor Carr who worked on an oil rig. Both "humans" had you download the hangouts application. Both were widowed. Both had daughters.

Bottom line. After months of dealing with both these men or possibly women or both they call the people they target as files. We are Games to them. Each person they impersonate are called avatars. They pray only on the Bonable the lonely the weak minded. Yes I’m sorry to say Morris got to me. I fell hard. Thank God I never sent money.

Then the mean words started to flow. We just ended by no more communication. Victor caught me off guard two weeks later. Waste of 2 months. I no longer play words with friends. I deleted it. I deleted both of them.

One of my best friends fell for a scammer. I know it but she thinks he's real! He is an Australian "US army soldier" with peace corps on a secret mission. Doesn't have any parents, they both passed away, as did his best friend who was a soldier. Has an ex wife here in the states. Confessed his love to her via Hemingway like quotes.

Insisted she get Hangouts and chat there, which she eventually did. Of course he knocked her off her feet with sweet talk and she sent pages full of info about her history showing she's extremely vulnerable. Fast forward a few weeks, he is coming to her and he asked her to fill out a form to send to his commander to request his leave. Which she stupidly did.

I was leery but she recently shared that he asked for $$ because he can't access his accounts and wants to come to marry her, and she DID it! Sent 4,000 via bit coin!! Even tried to get a loan for more but was denied. I've done my research and this all says scam, shared it, but she won't listen.

I'm at the point where I no longer ask because I don't want to even know. She's going to run herself to the ground. She's currently waiting for a promised phone call for two weeks now. If she gets it, she is sending more $!

Any way I can catch this jerk myself???

Has anyone heard of Marco Antonio? He is supposedly a petroleum engineer and is currently working offshore. Wife passed away 5 years ago and he has a son and daughter in Texas. He is of course "in love with me" but never met though. He has not asked me for money yet. I get this bizarre text on hangouts a couple of days ago from him about being so sick and wished he had a chance to meet me in person then I have not heard from him since.

After reading all these comments I think he is a scam.

I noticed someone mentioned him in this thread. I had been playing him and conversing for a few days. He did fit some of the scammer profiles asking personal questions to get to know you quickly. However he didn’t ask me for any money or gift cards in the short time we conversed.

I did find it interesting though that once he and both James Canon were mentioned on this page. They both dropped off my playing list totally. I’m not sure if WWF pulled the game in order to assist us in keeping these scammers out of their game so we can really enjoy their game the way it was meant to be or if they somehow closed their account and therefore the game dropped. Just an interesting coincidence.

Almost immediately he started up a conversation. But it was sexual, the person did not follow Ben’s pattern. I asked his name and he said James so i asked for his last name. His said Ryan. James Ryan - 2 first names. I asked for a photo and James refused. I asked him if he knew Ben Piccio of course no answer.

I’m still playing and chatting just a little with guys I don’t know and in a few weeks, these are the scammers I’ve met two - James Williams, different pics, Greg Miller and a funny name - Robison Gray. They all play a lot but aren’t necessarily very good. Have lots of points on the leaderboard. Not that great with the English language, one didn’t understand when I commented he was beating me. I think I’m targeted cause I’m middle aged and my age is on Facebook. They shouldn’t be picking me to fall for them cause my pic is my husband and I with a heart around us!

My advice is to look out for red flags, don’t reveal personal information and google their name and words with friends. Can also google images. I found Robison’s pic on several dating sites. Meeting people online is risky business!

No legitimate Doctor, Military, UN worker nor Oil Rig Engineer/Underwater Welder/Geologist is looking for love on Words With Friends. I have had dozens approach me - ALL SCAMMERS. I had also written on here asking women if they were talking to _____.

Until finally they always had crap go wrong requiring money. They asked for ITunes, Amazon and money up to $75,000. Plus money for the child. Come one ladies, band together and block everyone of them. You are NOT their true love. They are not just talking to you. Most use many emails on gmail.

I have a confession from a man from Africa. He told me they are told that white women hate black men, therefore they are happy to scam. It backfired when I showed him my combined family. He is not a Geologist but is a scammer. I cut off all contact.

Answering the question of how I found out the scammer was Nigerian...
by: Anonymous

To answer the question on how I found out that the person was Nigerian. I told him I contacted the real U.S. Military officer and then told the Nigerian that now he will be investigated through the email he was using and that he would be brought up to charges of impersonating a highly ranked U.S. Military official.

Then he got scared and begged me to not tell (which I gave the REAL person everything I had on the scammer). I then said then show me who you are, email me a real picture, so he did. The picture showed in the background that he's living the life...nice flat screen tv, name brand clothing shoes etc, nice home too.

Seems to me like he's scammed for a while. Haven't heard from him since but there are many many many more as I still play the game and almost every day I get 4 or 5 requests.

Some of these "mules" believe they are working for a legitimate company & their job is to wire money to other clients.

My scammer wanted me to get credit cards in my name & send him the account number so he could transfer his money over to me...lol. NOT! He would have charged my credit card up & leave me owing a lot if money.

Ben Piccio - by Anonymous Reply

In Dec 2018 Ben Piccio contacted me on WWF a week after I ended my "relationship" with Wayne Anderson. Ben used the same photo Wayne used. I told Ben all about Wayne and he said his photos were stolen a year earlier. Ben wanted to meet me in February 2019. I set the perimeter that no love words could be used. It went well in Hangouts and we became friends, an ex boyfriend was stalking me and he offered to pay for a bodyguard, I declined.

After 3 weeks he started writing love poems to me and I asked him to not talk of love until after we met in person. He wouldn’t stop. Because of Wayne it was hard separating the 2 of them. Ben asked me to move to San Francisco with him and we could have our houses in both places. In the end Ben did want money.

I Blocked him. A week later he asked me to play WWF with him and asked me for the same info he already knew. When I cornered him on him sending me love poems and a week later did not know me - he blocked me.

I too fell for this scam. I never understood how women could be so gullible. Up until it happened to me.

I was lonely. He was good looking, smooth talking, fun in his WWFs challenges. About a week into playing he suggested Hangouts, which I knew nothing about. He explained how he would walk me thru it. Which he did.

Things were so romantic. Chats turned into sexy talks. He was so in love. Long story short when I found his photos stolen from a male model I called him out on it & blocked him. But before I did he suggested I left him high & dry & was going to tell the world. But block him I did.

Soon numerous scammers were after my Facebook account, cell numbers...social media stuff.I honestly felt he was out to get into my social media accounts & destroy me. I was scared.

This scammer found me 3 weeks later & again almost a year later. He remembered every detail of me. I am still scared. Biggest, stupidest mistake I ever made. He had a lot of personal info on me.

Just be careful! Some of these scammers are dangerous. I loved the love story but not the end result.

All of the scammers I have run into have profile pics of very good looking men and they sweet talk you from the early on. I can see how lonely women would fall victim for this. I have had them ask me for my phone number and email but I will not give it to them. Two can play their game.

It’s sad that they have to do this, they must be very poor to prey on women this way

Please beware
by: Anonymous

I always thought how silly can woman be getting sucked in by men on games like this. Until it actually happens you totally understand. I should of realized by the broken English, the widow with one child, the personal questions thrown in at random times e.g. colour of my eyes, DOB, phone number, email address. Yes DAH I gave out all that information, & we had so much in common, his photos he sent me, his emails on his IDEAL WOMAN, I felt like I was applying for a job and yes I got the position oh how lucky did I feel.

The romantic emails and messages oh what have I been missing out on in my life I thought. But when the word MONEY came up, the red flags went up and then it turned nasty. He has threatened to send our messages and emails to Bloggers and more if I don't give him money (I think it is called Blackmail) so one has learnt her lesson, you would hope.

I have blocked him now obviously. So please be careful on this game and read what others have experienced. Its a shame when the prey make you feel like you are the predator. This word game is fun and addictive for the game itself. Do they not realize GOOGLE is an amazing tool and he doesn't exist, well his photos are obviously someone who has maybe scammed as well.

No point saying his name cos apparently they change their profiles, so watch out for the good looking ones.

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’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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Leonard Nelson anybody heard of him?
by: Anonymous

Has anyone heard of him. He is telling me I am the love of his life. Told him I find that hard to believe as we have never met. He asks me questions, but I give him very vague answers with no personal detail. Tells me he wants to marry me

Just wondering if he is hitting up other ladies with the same lines.

Anybody know a good way to search as there is this one guy going by George Arthur Smith. I would like to find the real person behind the picture and videos, and this scammer went as far as sending a phony drivers license so glad my bs meter is on point

Don’t Engage!
by: Denny in Az

Seriously people, don’t even engage with these vermin! Red flags are: low average word score, just started playing. Always decline. I have accepted games from people with scores similar to mine, play for awhile, then the personal questions start. When that happens I immediately block them. This doesn’t affect my stats.

Not all from Nigeria

Thanks for the info. I had one scammer wanting photos of me, my house & car. This guy was 2 different guys. Then while chatting with him I had scammers wanting my cell number, my credit card info, bank account locations, email addresses. Oh yeah one wanted my street address to send me flowers. 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.

My mother was scammed last fall by a person using this name Toby Neil Morris on WWF. Took for $8k plus $2k in iTunes gift cards before we found out. His name gets buried in the search of a furniture style. His photo showed up on 5 different fake LinkedIn profiles under different names. Using the google image search helps if you have the original pic from WWF. He used some faked passport and other stolen photos.

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.

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.

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

Brayden Smith again
by: Robynus

So after deleting me and calling me a liar he unblocked me and asked again for money to be sent today. His story has changed from needing it for his mother to helping him as he needs things. Then once again I played along and asked what he needed and the story changed back to his mother dying he has abused me today calling me a liar and that he hates me but continues to write asking for money.

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.

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

I'm wondering if he may have changed his profile recently to one of the other names mentioned here that combines "Lucas" with another name. Very chatty. Claims to live in Florida. Started chatting with the first move of the game.

Asking a lot of questions even though I was giving one word, or very vague answers. Went from asking about the weather and my day to asking if I am a single mother. Had been uncomfortable before, but blocked him at this point!

I played a few games with a guy going by the name of Brayden Smith He started asking questions and then within a week said he loved me. It took him 7 weeks and he finally asked me for $5000 and said he worked on an oil rig! I played along for awhile until I asked him why ??? He said his mother was dying. I told him I wanted to fly over and meet them and all of a sudden I’m blocked.

Ha ha ladies beware I see he has played 1100 games. He has blocked me now. I have screen shots of the conversation.

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’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.

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.

The pictures he uses are not his own. I wanted proof of everything and he got so mad.

I feel bad for the people they use to by stealing and using their pictures

David sent me more photoshopped photos of Grant Cardone on rigs. I had enough and I told him I want a video of him talking to me and for him to say my name. A couple days later he sends me a voiced over video that has Grant Cardone in it talking to me. The voice does not equal the lip movements. I sent the video to a few family and friends asking what they think of David. They all came back and said it was faked, words do not match lips. I blocked David. I am done.

I had posted here on 2/21/2019 about David Nathan

You can tell right away who the scammers are. They immediately start a chat as soon as you start a game. I just play along with them and make up a good story like I’m an alpaca farmer with 9 children. I also work for the FBI as a fraud specialist. That guy quit lol. Don’t give in to them. They usually say they are widowed and some sort of contractor.

Hi. Has anyone else met Martins Giovanni through words with friends. He is supposed to work on an oil rig in Ohio. His wife is deceased, he has two young kids, parents deceased.

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!

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!

Investigating his photos they come up as being Grant Cardone’s. David may also be using Hangouts, just not with me.

He says he is widowed, his daughter died 6 years ago. He has sole custody of his 2 granddaughters ages now 11 and 9. Names Tracy and Sara.

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

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.

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.

OK, so I am still unsure whether the person I am talking to is a scammer or not. She is playing with both men and women, both new users and older users of WWF. Her occupation of a mining prospector scares me a little only because I know absolutely nothing about it.

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.

This ClarksonJohnson1 is all over the net scamming and hes not very good at it. His grammar is horrible. I say flood him with games and chats then block and maybe words with friends will do something about him. If you get his hangout name report to Google.

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

So let's say you tell your scammer you do not have the money for an ITUNES card. They then ask if you need financial help. If you say yes, they send you a fake check & have you deposit it with a request to wire them a percent back to them. You do this and then the check is found fraudulent & you are responsible for the amount of the fake check plus you lost the money you wired to them. Is this how it works? Does any one know?

Another scam where he chats with you immediately. I knew he was full of BS as the same story as the rest and playing with multiple women. I will be uploading our conversation to Instagram with his pic. I also ran up the address he says he is in Scotland but he is in Africa so stay tuned. Blocking and reporting player

Nigerian scammers
by: Anonymous

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.

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.

Re reverse image
by: Anonymous

Try Yandex , I use that rather than tineye etc as it seems to throw up a lot more , look for similar photos as a lot have been photoshopped. The advice about not revealing anything personal is an absolute, you do not know this person it is just someone behind a computer - stay safe

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.

Do women scam men on WWFs
by: Anonymous

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.

Just don’t let him into your personal life. He is searching for information about you, your phone no, so maybe you use your no. for PayPal. Or to check out your bank details. Who you bank with. Please be very careful. They are all creeps. If you want any more help Scam haters United they are on Facebook they are very helpful.

A scammer named Bruce who uses the name Bruce and little birds on his profile. So far at least 3 games he started with me are disabled. Does anyone know what it means when a player's account is disabled? The stupid games stay in my WWFs account and you cannot delete them. It is annoying.

Names to add to the list
by: Anonymous

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.

I am sure glad I stumbled upon this. I knew something didn’t seem right. All of a sudden I was getting several game requests from guys I don’t know.

BREUER EARL
by: Anonymous

BREUER EARL is a scammer. Told him I was married to a police officer and he still doesn't care. I played along like I was interested for about a week on Hangouts and, when he started asking for $100 iTunes cards then BOOM, I called him out on it.

Sent him a long email with some pictures of the Argentina actor Juan Soler he was using. They weren't pics of what he had sent me yet...lol.

He blocked me on WWF and Hangouts. It's fun to play along. Just don't fall for it...be careful.
