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.

John Church
by: Anonymous

Ladies, watch out for John Church. Lifaisy7

He is quite a charmer and romancer and supposedly a millionaire living in Texas. Will send you beautiful love songs. Beautiful good morning wishes. But he wants to take you to hangouts. He has a daughter he wants you to become really good friends with via e-mail.

Soon there will be problems on his oil rig and he will need you to front him a large some of money.
Yes, he will pay you back double if you send him the money right away. Later he needs you to open a financial account in your name so he can transfer a large sum of money from a contract overseas into the United States.

NO WAY as it is a form of money laundering & you could go to prison for doing such an action.

John Church...he is DANGEROUS.

Ladies Beware!

Richard Jones
by: Anonymous

To the one writing about Richard Jones. The other guy is ThomasJeff123. He is on an oil rig in Norway. He declared his undying love for me within a week.

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

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

This is just my thoughts on the matter.

Scammers By Anonymous
by: Anonymous

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

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

Please provide somewhere else to report these scammers and I will join in. I have a list of these scammers and I am not afraid to report them. Can they do anything to us really? I have received death threats, too. Let me know your feelings on this matter.

Greg Anderson
by: Anonymous

Greg Anderson, age 52, told me he was an Army orthopedic surgeon serving in Afghanistan. His wife had died and he had a 26 year old son in Connecticut. He never directly asked for money but had a hard time sending his son a birthday gift. He had soldiers die even though none died on that date.

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

Avoid him at all costs. Even though I didn’t give him money he’s cost me emotionally and psychologically.

Richard Jones
by: Anonymous

I’m currently playing Richard Jones whose profile pic just changed to the exact same profile pic of someone named Thomas (can’t recall the last name) whom I played previously. Richard has not spoken yet but Thomas was on an oil rig in Norway.

I didn’t buy it to hit conversation attempts and he went away. The photo is of a white male, dark hair, beard and mustache close trim with some gray patches, black sweater with a white collar and in the background is a ship on the water and immediately behind what appears to be cargo.

Anyway, I found it amusing the same pic had two different names that were surely scammers. The original Thomas is no longer in my stats list so he’s gone.

Stay safe ladies and gents and stay strong!!!

Don’t let them prey on your vulnerability.

REX HUDSON WWF scammer stole photos from florist
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Totally fake from the get-go.

Wood Miller
by: Laura

I was stupid to a point. Wood Miller said he was oil rig engineer. He wanted to be "friends". He told me he was a widower and had a 12 year old daughter. I am a widow. He wanted to restart after retiring. We started using Viber instead. He called me eventually and his accent to me didn't match up with the pictures he sent me.

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

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

Right! I quit communication then. I even blocked and reported him on Words with Friends.

Christopher Neuer7
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

Smooth talking Officer
by: Anonymous

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

chandlerjohn599@gmail.com.

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

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

usmilitaryphoningservices@consulant.com

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

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

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

Anyone come across these guys? They are ones that proclaim undying love and devotion after chatting with you for about a day. It's hilarious! The Richard Williem guy did say to me "I will find you" (because presumably he can't live without me). That was when I resigned from that game.

The other guy finally told me a tearful good bye - and he will love me forever and then quit playing.

OMG - these scammers think we are really stupid!

Oh another one - Johnson Blade. This guy talked to me for a few months - and finally got around to asking for an iTunes card and quit playing when i said "no"! lol

Edward Henry

Ed approached me on WWF. A smooth talker, very friendly. Very attractive in my opinion. Supposedly attended Turkey's most prestigious college and got his PhD in Pretroleum Engineering. Widowed, 62 years old, 15 year old daughter living in CA w/a Nanny. Retiring after this, his biggest contract yet.

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

Today I told him he was busted. The rigs were evacuated for the Hurricane.

Something has to he done and also I twit the info given to me to @wordswithfriends and if more people would do this Words with friends will start to take some responsibility and also the federal trade commission will look into it.

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

Thank God I am happily married. You ladies need to take action instead of just blocking them. It will help the next lonely woman not become a victim. They want even to play with me and they keep a list of people that has threatened them and that's on to them. They have a new scam where they pose as pastors and want your bank account to send you money.

Please be wise nothing is free. If a man is meant for you God will send him in the right way.

Same story different name
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

I would greatly appreciate any input that could be given.

Same story !
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Tricky little devils, these scammers can be.

Oil Rig Engineers
by: Anonymous

So now it's been twice in one week. Both oil rig engineers, widowed, originally from Norway but now working in the Texas area drilling for oil off a platform in the Gulf. Both wrote broken English in text, and didn't bat an eye when I mentioned I was familiar with the oil rig engineer/deceased wife story and cautioned that it might appear disingenuous (hint hint).

Pesty people these men. I'm concerned that it's a group or even the same person since I've had two in a row, in less than a week, and I really don't want to have to stop playing. I do love WWF and have met some excellent people, not to mention my friends IRL that I play regularly.

Morrison Jackson is one of the most boring scammers I chatted with on hangouts. Lover??? Naw. He just wanted me to do sexual video chats on my side. He couldn't use a video on the oil rig because it would cause an explosion yet he could watch one. Double standard. I never did virtual sex while chatting to Morrison.

Also wanted Itunes cards & steam wallet gift cards later on to do his paper work on the rig. Itunes cards for his son's birthday. Called me his wife right away.

While chatting one night he called me by another female's name. So he may be juggling a lot of different women at a time, but he gets confused as to whom he is chatting with. I also think he is scamming men since he has 2 email accounts. One has a photo of him with another man & the other gmail has only his photo. He can be very hateful if you question him.

To the person writing about Greg Anderson. Please forgive yourself. I also was scammed. Not by Greg but by another scammer. Not so much as actually sending money, but giving out my real name and things that could lead to my identity being stolen. I just never expected someone to lie to me about falling in love.

It has been really hard trying to get over the lies. It took me awhile to actually accept that my scammer was not real. He was supposed to come and rescue me. It was such a nice idea...probably too nice.

These scammers not only steal your heart they want all of your money. I am so sorry you went through all of his lies. It makes me angry,too. I only wish I could find out the real person or persons behind my scammer. I really believe there was more than one person behind my scammer... just based on everything that happened to me. I, however, do not believe I will ever be able to find out who the real person is/was behind my scammer.

I have recently had scammers asking for Steam Wallet cards.

I read where they cash the Steam Wallet gift cards and Itune cards in for cash. They are not using these cards nor do they need these cards to do paper work on the oil rig. But it sounds good and many people send them gift cards. Most of the money is being used to keep scams going and also funding the gangs behind the romance scammers.

NOT GOOD!

How many romance scammers do you think are on WWFs? I have came across over 20 myself so this is ridiculous. I believe they might be the same person with a different WWFs profile account but I guess we will never really know.

Scammers are nice. Scammers are charming. Scammers pursue MULTIPLE players (you're NOT the only one!). Scammers are PATIENT! If it's too good to be true then it probably is.

I have not come across Anderson Wood, and this person may not be a scammer however if he (or she) is professing their love and admiration within days or even weeks (and the two of you have not met in person) then most likely it's a SCAM!

To playing along, if you give your email out make a fake gmail account & get a google voice number. Also use Chrome Browser as it has layers of protection to protect your IP address & location.

These scammers are serious. Some have scammers working with them in the USA. Don't ever disclose your real name or location. Photos you send shows your location so make sure your location is disabled on your cell phone or camera is deactivated and be CAREFUL!

And the deception never ends
by: Anonymous

I have read everyone’s comments on this platform and I’m so glad that we have this opportunity to exchange thoughts and occurrences. It’s a very serious plague that has befallen us. I wonder just how many of us have been victimized that we don’t even know about. I don’t believe that there is currently any way to stop this scourge except to try to get the word out any way that we can.

Never trust a stranger. Let good sense prevail.

All of the incidents that I have read here have a common thread. I do believe that there is a large group of people involved with this particular type of scamming that makes it seem like a syndicate. This is not to be taken lightly. But the best way to stay safe is to avoid this sweet talk immediately.

Please don’t participate. Many people have written that the internet is the new way to find the possibility of romance and that this is a different age that we live in. I never mean to paint with a broad brush but I don’t agree with this assumption. There is nothing that can take the place of meeting someone in real life and in real time. It may not be easy but there are no short cuts and in the end the results will not be a lie because you will have been able to assess for yourself no smoke and mirrors.

Good luck everyone.

My Romance Scammer was very charming. It was hard to leave him alone. However, I know in my heart he is not for real. It would be nice if he were for real but he is not for real. Someone said that your child has an imaginary friend and some people have an imaginary lover - a romance scammer online.

Also, his conversation mode seemed to change. After a while it was like the person behind the chats was someone else and not the same scammer that was trying to make me fall in love. Made me wonder if several people are working behind one profile name. I didn't like some of the things the last impersonator said. Plus, my scammer forgot a lot of things he should have known about me.

So I had to block him.

SCAMMERS ALL OVER THE WORLD
by: Anonymous

Hey all, let's not assume that all scammers are Nigerian. Scammers are all over the globe! I've read where many of them are Russian women pretending to be men! Also there are plenty of scammers who live in the U.S.

I came across a person who wrote very well, he seemed familiar with the east coast (he said he was from Boston, don't know if that was true or not). He was also familiar with pop culture and quoted scripture! Instead of the popular "dear" or "sweetie" he used "babe" a lot.

I quickly knew he was a scammer because he came on too strong and too fast. Anyway, just wanted to emphasize that scammers are not limited to any geographical area, race, ethnicity or gender. They don't care who you are or where you are.

All they want is your money and/or identity!

Some strategies
by: Anonymous

These guys are so easy to identify. I challenge them straight away when they ask where I am from by telling them I know they are Nigerian. This takes them aback and some admit it and ask how I know. I don't tell them of course.

I do get tired of being called dear and sweetie.
Another tactic is to simply ignore their questions so that they resign quite quickly, usually disappearing from the game without a trace.

Greg Wilson
by: Anonymous

Another scammer says his name is Greg Wilson and he has a daughter and his wife died last 5 year ago due to cancer. Same story. Basically if someone say he is a doctor, oil rig contractor, businessman or US army, they are scammers and Nigerian. They are 25 to 35 years old.

Scammers by the dozens and even more than that
by: Anonymous

I have made comments to this site a few times now because I too could have been scammed but my guard was never down. I've been around a long time and I could smell a rat from far away. I knew from all the sweet talk that the other person had an agenda and I wasn't wrong.

Anytime money was mentioned I shut them down. It was just so obvious. One guy even asked me if I had my own bank account. That was a dead give away for me about where the conversation was headed.

Yes, I hate these scammers too and I wish the game site would take action to block these people. I think the game site has an obligation to get involved because the problem is huge. If something sounds too good to be true in most cases it's not true. This in regard to the sweet talk. It's a trap that scammers are baiting.

For sure Francies Jackson is a scammer. My scammer chatted with me for 3 months. Then asked for $6,500 to fix a piece of equipment on his oil rig.

I refused. He then asked me to set up an account at a bank so he could get the money from a contract in the millions of dollars transferred to the United States. No way as I told him that was money laundering. Blocked him right away.

These are scary thieves. Stay away from them.

Re David Williams

Sorry to hear about your Grandma - she sounds as she has been really pulled in - I hope she doesn’t send any money . The name is synonymous with romance scams - take a look on ScamHaters United or scamaware to see if you can spot the photo that is being used (always a stolen photo from some innocent man). Maybe get your gran to look as it shows the photo used and the actual scammer who is behind it. I wish you luck as you sound so panicked. I hate these parasites doing this to women

Common sense must prevail
by: Anonymous

I have no desire to ever rain on anyone’s parade. Most of us enjoy sweet words and building time with someone with whom we might feel comfortable with. But please pause long enough to think about that four little lettered word "love"

It can be so overused and spoken so easily without depth of meaning. Usually love in real life works this way; you have to be speaking and building time in real time and then your building a real foundation. This is the way true love evolves.

How in the world can someone say I love you when they have only met you virally which can only cover bits and pieces. I know that some people do fall in love online, but online relationships. It’s like navigating a very slippery slope. There is nothing like meeting and spending time in real time. You can’t ever know someone well enough virally.

Everything that person sends electronically can be full of lies. Everything should be checked out. Research that person you think you are interested in. Ask a ton of questions that you can check out. If the person is for real they will not mind to be helpful.

You have every right to do that.

Grandma is getting scammed by David Williams
by: Anonymous

The scammer is "David Williams" from Words With Friends. It’s been three weeks and she has already been proposed to. He apparently has a seven year old child and is from Baltimore, Maryland. He is supposedly on an oil rig stationed out in the Gulf of Mexico. He just asked her for a $1,500 iTunes gift card to fix a piece of equipment on the rig.

Sadly, she is in complete denial.

Oh - same old story - widowed, 2 daughters, works on the high seas. He's pushed me to do the chat apps but so far hasn't quit playing which is what they usually do when I continually tell them no.

This scamming is epidemic
by: Anonymous

I am reading everything that is written here and I’m amazed and pained that any of us have been subjected to such scandalous behavior. I agree that these monsters should be reported to law enforcement, but they are so slick that they don’t use their real names nor their real pictures.

I find that all of them are from a foreign country and that’s easy to tell by the way they write and their spelling and grammar is appalling. Their game skills for the most part are subpar.

One lady reported the other day that her mother was falling in love with someone she met on this site. Of course I have no way of knowing if she might be okay with this relationship but if it was me I would try my best to discourage her.

So weird that their stream of bogus as well as stupid line of nonsense is so much the same for all of them.

Please delete, delete, delete. If we ban together it might make a difference.

God bless all of you.

Do you ever see their faces live?
by: Anonymous

My 80 year old Mother is in the middle of what I am calling a scam. At least I am trying to convince her that this is a scam. She said the same as the stories below, he is a widow, wife died after birth of second child. He was from Sweden, daughter in university but son is with Grandmother while he is in the US working for a petroleum company.

She got a glimpse of his face once but since then the screen is black and she can only hear his voice. Periodically he calls her by her first name but uses Sweetie a lot. Has not "yet" asked for money but is in love with her and I would assume he is half her age or slightly older.

Does anyone on here ever see their scammers face consistently during skype or face time?

To Scammers and Cheaters
by: Anonymous

To Scammers and Cheaters:

I have also been playing WWFs for years. The scammers started "stalking" me as you call it in April. It was so bad by July, I was shutting my game down. I agree, if you ever chat with one you have numerous scammers sending you game requests. It is horrible.

Prior to shutting my game down, I changed profile pictures to deter them. However, they seemed to know I had chatted with other scammers. It actually made me wonder if it wasn't the same scammer I had blocked coming back after me with a different profile and name. It is very creepy.

I also noticed the scammers would use unfamiliar words while playing the game against me. Made me think they were using cheat sheets.

Do yourself a favor and don't chat.

Yes I have been playing on this word site for many years now and this scamming business has begun for me for the past two years and there is no end to it. It almost scares me as if I am being stalked. I refuse to chat at all.

I don’t need it and I can see even an innocent comment can get out of hand in no time. I believe to be on the safe side you have to be suspicious of everyone. Sad state of affairs. And I have a problem with players who use cheat sheets to score high. It makes the game a waste of my time. It’s easy to spot when you see multiple plays of words you have never heard of and the game becomes so out of hand. That’s not right either. I delete these games even if it counts against me.

Folks who play Words With Friends. I have shared my experience with a few scammers on this site. Please don't be fooled by any man who says I love you sight unseen or any of the other empty comments that they are quick to offer up.

I'm not saying that every time this may happen, but I am saying it is very unrealistic and I can see how someone might be fooled by nice words but think clearly on this. 9 out of 10 times this person is trying to gain your confidence to find out more about you.

Be very careful and don't believe anyone until you have had a chance to physically check that person out. I would suggest asking questions that can be scrutinized because that is what has to be done.

The very same thing happened to me at least three times. Nice words and not much about sex which I thought was nice, but within a week they start asking for gift cards and money. Yes, oil rig workers or self contractors or ship workers to start. And they do not use their real picture nor do they use their real names.

So to track them down and not allow them to play would be a great thing for Words With Friends site managers to do. It has become epidemic. Best fix is not to chat with anyone, at least not on this site.

The ones claiming to be active military are always scammers (all the ones I have come across anyway). Their English is usually broken, and I know more about the military than they do (I am an Army Mom). One guy told me "goodness, I'm in the Army, not the Air Force" when I kept asking him where he did his Airborne training.

That's when I informed him the the photo of the Soldier he was using had an Airborne patch on his shoulder representing the Airborne Division of the US Army. UGH! That's when he disappeared.

"Veteran Scammer"
by: Anonymous

I received a chat message from a "Bryson Hinton", who had requested a game. I accept all game requests (until now, that is). He started out a little too sweet, so I was suspicous from the start. Within 2 days, he was giving me his life story about his wife, who died from cancer, and his now dying son.

He is asking me to send $2,000.00 to Chase Bank in Texas and he actually provided the "Nanny's" name and bank account information. I am trying to report this to Chase Bank, but they don't seem to give a crap if you're not a customer!!!

This SCAM is unbelievable and I certainly hope no one falls for it. Also, I am sure the picture he is using is not him at all. He types in broken English. He says he is a veteran and stationed in Afganistan. Yeah, right.

It is nice to know some of you are wise enough to detect scammers quickly. But don’t be so quick to judge others. I have been alone for 14 years, and certainly, I don’t need or look for love.

I am very happy with my life, but this scam took me by surprise as I never knew someone could be so sick to play with others feelings.

Fortunately, I followed my gut instincts and did some searching. A friend guided me to this site and it was an eye opener. Only harm was to feel stupid for thinking someone wanted to chat with me. Glad I realized in time and blocked the scammers (because I don’t think there is only one).

Best defense is to know they are out there. Once you know it, you don’t become a victim. Thanks to all that posted here with their experiences, preventing others to fall for it.

To Shocked
by: Anonymous

Everyone is in a different state of mind. Many like yourself, see thru the scams. Others who may be more vulnerable due to personal circumstances fall temporarily into the romance scammer's hands.

Romance scammers find the weaknesses in their victims. Maybe a female is in a stagnant marriage or relationship. This provides the scammer with easy access to the victim's emotions.

Please remember we are not all wired like you. I am so glad to hear you saw through the jerks & blocked the scammers. Eventually, those who fall prey to the romance scammer will figure it out. I just hope they do not give away too much personal information to lose their identity & I hope they fugure it out before losing too much money, emotions, & mainly their dignity.

Remember do not give out personal information to someone you have not met in person & do not send money to someone you have not met in person.

Also, no sexting with someone who has only sent you a photo. You do not know who you are really talking to.

I have been checking this website daily for the past couple of weeks and it is a real eye opener. I had no idea this scamming was going on. I was not looking for love but fell in love with a very charming man in the spring.

He lured me over to hangouts and started sending very romantic messages and love songs. The attention was flattering. I discovered that at least one of the photos he sent me was photoshopped to convince me he was working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

The common threads of these scammers is unbelievable and you would think they would be more original. My heart has been broken but I will get over it. I was saved from losing my money or my marriage. I am grateful to a couple of good friends along the way as well as this very helpful website.

But things didn’t add up and I started to doubt. I made a comment to a friend and she suggested all was a lie directed to manipulate me and make me either loose money or identity.

I started "googling " and found this site. To say the least, it prevented me from loosing not only money but to further fall in love and become a victim. Thanks to the generous souls that share their painful experiences, I am walking away unharmed.

Good job by checking all posts, and for those that feel to scam them back, just let karma do justice. By keeping the contact you are deepening the wound in your heart.

Do we trust this site?

I have to say I am very dubious about THIS site. Two messages below a link was given by the editor in order to be able to post photos. I copied and pasted it as it isn’t a link which just takes you to that page. That took me straight to a page for Asian girls wanting to chat.

Why has this been set up so that we can’t just post photos to our comments? Why aren’t we able to comment directly to another person’s post?

With all due respect, if this comment of mine is not posted, I shall know this site is a scam in itself!


ED: I think the above comment is from a scammer trying to drive people away from this site and finding out about scams.

The link always provided to show photos [including the link referred to below] is:

https://www.watchforscams.com/nigerian-dating-scams.html

which anyone can check and does not go to any other site. It is clearly a link that you can see the web address and not a link you click on that takes you somewhere else when you click on it.

As explained below, you can post photos when you are posting a new submission so the photo relates to that submission otherwise photos of unrelated scammers get lost in threads that don't relate to them.

All comments are reviewed before publishing to:

1. Stop people using this site to post spam and adverts for their business

2. Stop trolls leaving abusive comments about the intelligence of women falling for these scams

3. Stop scammers leaving messages pretending to be women who say that a particular person is not a scammer and to trust them

4. Stop scammers pretending to be somebody who can help women get their money back by leaving an email address and asking for more money

5. Take out the four letter words some submitters use to describe their scammers.

If after reading all the thousands of genuine comments on this site you really think the site is a scam itself, you need help or you are a scammer yourself!

He was supposedly born in Beatrice, Nebraska and spent a lot of years in Germany growing up. He even sent a picture of his passport.

Wanted me to look for property because he sold his house to pay for this contracted job. Told me that the contract would pay 50 million dollars. He was in danger where he was staying and asked me to send him an iTunes card for $100, but I did not of course. Caught him in a bunch of lies and blocked him.

It is the same old story. The first time I was hit up it was really exciting until they started asking for money, no Itune cards. They wanted $6,500 to fix an oil rig part that had broken. The next round was asking me to set up an banking account in my name so payment on a contract performed in a foreign country could be transferred to the United States.

Really? That is money laundering. These guys are total jerks. Preying on innocent and lonely women. Get a life.

Never tell them anything true about yourself. They make you lie. Protect yourself and just block them. However, if you talked to one you are put on a list as one who chats and you will start receiving a lot of WWFs game requests.

He then sent me a pic of a fake CIA card. Unbelievable. He said he had an assignment in London for 2 weeks and while there needed $500.00 for his college age daughter in the states as he forgot his credit card.

Reported this guy before, and he’s using a stolen photo, pic of him with a Cat, reported him to zynga but he’s still on.

Tried to scam me before for $30,000 because he need to fix ‘equipments’ on the oil rig.
Changed my photo on Wwf and used my maiden name, and he thought it was a different person and I got the whole story again, but this time asking for $4,500. I’ve been playing along for a while wasting his time, hopefully keep him from scamming someone else!!

First time said he had one son, wife died giving birth, this time he’s saying he has a boy and a girl.

I played Lucas Moore for almost 2 months. He is a scammer. Please don’t play him. He is still playing on WWF playing. I reported him but they basically blown me off about it. His pic is of a man who is happy married in NY. I found this mans FB account. All the pics of Lucas Moore were from the other mans fb account. When I confronted him he called me a goat and threatened to kill me.

He is very charming and must use a script. In the beginning his English was good but the more we talked the worst his English got.

Please stay safe. He started asking personal questions to get your information.

I am sitting here wondering how long the scammers will continue to lurk on WWFs. You would think the market is now saturated. It would be nice if they would just go away.

My being married has not deterred scammers. I would say 30% of the scammers still prey on married women. What you must do is block the scammer as they approach you as this is the only safe way to handle these romance scammers.

I hope someday Karma comes back and bites them.

I was almost taken in by Davis Michael (Miller) Dayton Ohio. Single dad 62; daughter Eva 8; mom living with them. He says he’s originally from Norway and that his Norwegian name is Eivaind.

His wife died in childbirth as did Eva’s twin sister. Told me he was a finance supervisor and then a couple of days later he was going to a second interview for a job - which he got - as an oil rig supervisor.

Watch out for:

1.Photo shopped photo of him and Eva
2.Sometimes his second name Michael is spelled Micheal
3.Manages to arrange a Nannie for Eva and Mom within a few hours of leaving to go to new job 600,000miles off the coast of Gulf in Alabama
4. Does not take important issues seriously or have a typical human response to situations that normal human beings would.
5. When I asked him to send a selfie of him on the Drilling platform (another way for me to catch him out) he sent a photo of him in a sweatshirt and shades plus another photo of men drilling. I FOUND THE VERY SAME PHOTO IN GOOGLE IMAGES WITHIN 3mins.
6. Do not be fooled by his sweet talking and if he wants to buy you a beautiful house and marry you - BLOCK THIS CREEP. But more importantly, try not to be lured off WORD and over to Hangouts!!!!

Romance Scammers on WWFs
by: Anonymous

FYI. Men are being addressed by romance scammers on WWFs, too. My husband has had several women from Russia requesting to play games and then begin chatting about being single and looking for a husband.

It is my belief that these scammers are attacking any and all types of players on WWFs. Just be careful if they start chatting and asking personal questions about yourself.

There are numerous sites that discuss recognizing a romance scammer. Do yourself a huge favor and google Romance Scammers and how to identify one. Remember it is never safe to give out personal information about yourself to someone you met online and have never personally met in person.

To the one who posted about Michael Garry and any other posts about men not requesting money.

You need to remember it is not always money they are after. They want your IDENTITY. Please do not give out any information to these scammers. Even your name is almost too much information. They can track you down via the internet to find out information to steal your identity.

They ask you questions that might reveal your personal passwords to online accounts such as Amazon, banking accounts, online credit card accounts. They want to know your favorite color, the names of your pets, what car you drive, your age, your birth date, your favorite vacation spot as they are after your identity.

Do not be honest with these creeps as they are not your friend and they will claim to love you unconditionally and forever until they claim your identity. Also, some of the scammers are after Itune cards, money to help fix broken down pieces of equipment, money laundering, and also blackmail.

They are not all after monetary items, but personal information about you to be used against you later on.

This is highly dangerous and it is a game you do not want to get involved in. Resist communicating with these identity thieves. In the long run you will be safer and will be able to sleep at night.

I for one changed my profile name to a generic title. I will never use a photo of myself in my profile. Your photo can be snipped out of the frame and saved as a JPEG.

These scammers are heartless. All they care about is stealing your identity. Please be careful. Every photo you have used in your profile picture could very well have been snipped out and saved on their computers. Of course, you would have had to accept a game from them before they could steal your photo. But I am sure many of us did accept games until we finally figured out their intent.

I cannot prove this person is a scammer, but his story is similar to others I have read.

The story I got was he was widowed, living in the US, daughter in boarding school in UK, and he's looking for love. Does some kind of engineering (?) work with rigs; also something about drawing / architecture. He and his daughter are "close", yet she gets mad at him because he "works too much" - yet, she's in the UK (?) Says he is from Denmark, but lost his accent since he's lived here for 40 years.

He is new to WWF, but has higher average word score, etc. Like others, his messages do not have proper wording, phrasing, and/or grammar.

To Anonymous of 7/23/18, there is a picture of him (Robertphilips10) in a white shirt, mirrored sunglasses, sitting on a chair/stool, outside. Is he the "guy"?

It is so sad how the romance scammers has taken a great game of scrabble and turned it into a nightmare for some.

Sure, at first, the love and romance is fun and exciting. However, when it takes a turn for the romancer to start scamming one for money, or even their life, it is no longer fun and exciting. It turns it to a huge game for your life.

I urge all woman who are aware of scammers to try and reach out to another woman who is playing WWFs with a known scammer to let them know. The player might snub you and even block you, but at least you tried to protect their identity, money, and life.

I for one have deleted my WWFs game, which is a shame but I had to do so. But the amount of strange men asking me to play has become so bothersome that the game is no longer worth the risk. Hang in their ladies and please keep focused on protecting yourself.

Constantine comes off as very chatty from the beginning, "Good morning. Did you sleep well? Where are you from? etc". At least no terms of endearment involved. Always wants to play the short form of the game rather than the classic for some reason. He was born in Italy, but came to the US at age nine. I became suspicious when he said that he was working in Alaska.

Then today, he said that he was a tool pusher instructor and Independent oil Contractor on Endicott Island. So I blocked him. My tension honestly starts to build whenever I notice a comment from any guy on this game anymore.

Scammer magnet?

I’ve been playing WWF for years. My profile pic was never of my face until about 2 weeks ago. I’d never had anyone attempt to scam me on this Game until I changed my profile pic to one of me.

Suddenly every older man seems to show interest. First one was Terri Stain who said he’s 60, going to retire as soon as his "time on the platform" is over this time. Said he’s a widower, has a 15 year old daughter who is taking care of his mom and a nanny while he works on the oil rig. Professed his love for me about 2 days in.

Never asked for money but I was watching for it. At one point I had another guy reach out too and I told Terri about it and he told me to ignore him. That it wasn’t safe. Ha, he’s trying to keep me safe, while also scamming me! While I’m talking with him I’m now getting all kinds of guys sometimes multiple in a day wanting to chat with me. When I told Terri that I thought he was scamming me, of course he said he wasn’t that he truly loved me.

When I pointed out that his "story" is almost verbatim with what other stories are, he told me I "hurt his feels so bad" and then silence.

I suggested to him early on that he was African/Nigerian and that the photo was not of him - and he really flew off the handle, calling me crazy and so on. This is a common ploy of these guys, questioning the sanity of the opponent. He had all the usual questions and shaky English, but it didn't stop him from unleashing some choice abuse when he realized he'd been sprung.

I always check how long a challenger has been playing and how many games they have won, and find that this is a good indication of the Nigerian scourge. The kinds of men in the photos are also a pointer!

But I am sure the same players change names and photos on a regular basis

He knows I am married for 64 years and much, much older.

Now he seems so genuine. What is he up do? What an adventure this has been!

Need advice, please.

Romance Scammers on WWFs
by: Anonymous

Yes, I tried to play with a couple of gals playing with scammers I fell for during the game. Well neither one of the gals would reply back to my chat.

I started out with thanking them for playing the game. But they never chatted back. However, I do know that the guys they were playing with advise them not to chat with others. So they were probably well versed and following the instructions of a guy they think love them.

It is so sad. I also think that some of these scammers are using several different profiles. In other words, the same face behind many names.

Just a word of warning. These romance scammers are professionals. They know what they are doing. I suggest playing WORDs with them, but not giving them any personal information. They are dangerous. Just google Romance Scammers and you will see how they operate.

It is my opinion that many of them work together. They use different profiles, but I believe they could be the same person behind the different names. Or their co-workers are sitting right next to each other comparing notes. It is dangerous.

I for one have been hit up with at least 9 of these scammers since Thursday night. It is so bothersome and it totally drained my energy. I started resigning and deleting them. I might start declining games from now on. It is so bothersome.

Now I am getting requests to chat on hangouts or text messaging via my cell phone from men who are independent contractors based in the United States or in the UK. They are no longer attached to oil rigs. However, they are widowed and have a son or daughter. Same old sad story of being lonely and looking for a mom for their child and mate for life.

It seems like all the friend requests slow down Tuesday night but come back alive on Thursday evenings. I am wondering if the scammers have a training session on Tuesday evenings.

Anyway, it gets bothersome. Fun to play WORDS with them but chatting gets very boring as its the the same old same old.

As above goes under the name Jamestini. When I started chatting about having blocked an obvious scammer then he stopped chatting and changed his photo. He aged 20 years. Sorry to whoever the photo belonged to. I believe this was a "ring" because I had 2 or 3 a day before I sussed him. He wasn't pushy, hadn't asked for money, hadn't asked for any other type of communication but completely matched the profile. He also wrote in good English. Shame. I have now deleted WWF cos I can't be bothered with the hassle but loved chatting with people. The annoying thing was being unable to finish games.

Donald Frank. White guy on a picture holding a dog with a red, white bow on its head. Began a game. As soon as the game started, he began chatting. Took me a while to respond. I simply gave a greeting. Said I was new to the game. He said he is too. Am I married. Do I have children. He has a child. Lost his wife in a plane crash. Lives in Turkey. A doctor. Orthopedic surgeon for the UN. Wanted to exchange emails. So we could "get to know ourselves".

Told him to just play the game. Searched his name on Facebook. Stolen pictures of a legitimate doctor. Asked if he was on FB. Never responded.

When I ran across my first romance scammer, it was very exciting until I realized it was a scam. Now I am sick and tired of their stories.

Oil rig contractor, overseas, lost wife to cancer 5 years ago. Has a daughter or son in their teens, looking for a mother for their child. They need Itune cards, they need money for malfunctioning equipment, the needs go on and on. I never understood this since this guy was extremely wealthy but very needy for my money.

Contractor in the United States waiting for a contract to go through. Soon they fly off to a foreign country to complete their contract. They can't make it back to the States for various reasons, but they love you unconditionally. They want your money. They want your cell phone number. If you consider giving them the number, get a tracfone or google phone number, but do not give out your main cell phone number. Too dangerous.

None of them wanted my love, they wanted my money and I believe my identity. Do not be fooled. Do not give out too many personal details about yourself either.

If it sounds too good to be true, then it is. They have no shame. Dating an online romance scammer is off my bucket list (which I never had on the list to begin with LOL!). At least I can laugh at myself now.

I have had so many of these guys preying on me that I now know straight away, from the first 'Hi' or 'Hello dear', that it's one of them. So I now launch straight into a cheery 'You must be one of those African guys!?'and this really takes them aback.

I also pre-empt them by saying 'You must work in the oil industry!' But I never let them know how I identify them. After this kind of treatment they usually vanish without trace.

From my experience it appears that several profiles might be one person. I was wondering if anyone else felt that the same person was impersonating several profiles.

For instance, I was chatting with two different guys who both wanted to be called the same endearment name. My first reaction was oh my goodness, but then I felt like maybe these two different guys were the same guy. Or maybe they are all working in the same room and talking about their chats and decide to play a game on the person who is chatting with two of them at the same time??

Familiar scenarios. Works on an oil rig or is a contractor. Sadly lost his wife in a tragic accident or rare disease within the last 5 years. Has a teenaged child (usually a daughter) that is his world. Want's to get to know you better on Google Hangouts or requests your email and/or cell.

Funny, they are excellent wordsmiths but can't put together a correctly punctuated, grammatically correct sentence.

Sad that such a fun, mind-stimulating game is reduced to scamming us. Play if you like the competition (who knows who's playing for them), but "play" at your own risk.

I like to mess with them a little.

Hey Ladies, Watch out for John Church User name: Lifaisy7. He is an engineer working on an oil rig in Scotland who lives in George Town, Texas. He is very wealthy.

He asks you to chat on Hangouts just as a friend. Within a week or two he is madly in love with you. Sending you You tube songs like: I will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. He sends the same posts to all the ladies he is chatting with on Hangouts which he found thru WWFs. I know because my friend and I both were chatting with him so we figured this all out.

He asks you to e-mail his daughter whose birthday is coming up. Wants you to become very close to her since you will be her new Mum. oh, yes his wife died several years back.

Long story short he is going to come and rescue you as soon as his 1.8 million dollar contract is up. However, a piece of equipment breaks and he asks you to send him $7,000 to repair it since he has no access to his millions of dollars in the states. He will pay you back double the money when he gets back to the states. Only problem is he never gets back to the states.

WWF TROLLS....(More adendum)
by: Anonymous

THEY JUST WANT TO BE FRIENDS, they say and - Hi, dearie, often terms of endearment.

This JAMES SCOTT has now changed his name to DANIEL CRAIG. Same photo, different name. When I called him on it, he said some guy hacked his account, so he reported it and had it back. He wants to Facetime. He also wanted my ph.#. (not going to happen!!)

He then suddenly changed his photo to another one after I called him on it! Then came back and said that the photo was him when I told him he is being watched and his IP address is being monitored and watched. I also told him he has been reported.

His ph.# he listed is: 720-773-1052. His e-mail address is: james123scottxz@gmail.com.

Most of these names appearing are men's first names for first and last name; many do not even bother to capitalize the names.

One named PHILIP TREVOR has done same. He is e-mailing me, (I blocked him) but I wanted to get his e-mail address and ph. number first:

philiptrevor99@gmail.com

He now seems to have disappeared from WWF games. He spells hello with one L- helo.

Thus far, I have collected images and info for:

JAMES SCOTT aka DANIEL CRAIG ph.#: 720-527-9499
PHILIP TREVOR
BRYAN SCOTT
BRIAN HAASE...ph.#: 231-527-9499

They don't play regularly, either. They will continue to try to talk you up if they think they might be able to get to you but beware if you reject them, they will throw the F-bomb at you!
But, these names change as frequently as they need to and they have a ton of them doing it seems. They are usually guys and usually only play women, no matter the age, also.

I knew he was a scammer, but played with him. I was mean to him, but he took it because he thought he could get money. Asked me to marry him, was coming to see me but he had no money and I needed to pay his way for $2000.00.

When I called him on it, he was ugly. I forgot, he is deeply religious and prays all the time.
He is not the smartest person around and uses broken English. He has had his phone disconnected.

He is asking that the company send him to me and he needs all of my banking info to complete this transaction! oh my god!! Does he really think I’m going to send him all of that info so he can clean me out!!

by: JOAN H(AUST)

Have just finished an interesting "chit chat" with one of these halfwits. I really was a lucky one - my "playing partner" was a Colonel (no less)!! in the US Air Force. Michael Carey from Wisconsin. He was divorced with 2 kids. Being retired, I was on this site to play Scrabble, but sometimes boredom sets in, and having a conversation with these people is both entertaining and amusing.

Michael was in Syria, and didn't work all the time, so was able to chat & play Scrabble at odd times. This chatting went on for a few weeks. I was asked for either a phone no or email address. I suggested he send me his email address, and would you believe it took about 4 attempts to get one which even looked legit. Boredom finally set in, so I gave him a "serve" this morning about using Military photos and info. Then came back the sob story about his marriage breakup etc, and then he and all texts were gone. Their appalling spelling gives them away at the start - I was amused to think a Colonel couldn't spell Moscow!! I assumed this was a Scrabble site and not a dating one.

Users beware !!

They will ask your age and then say age is just a number. They may ask you if you are a Christian and they may say they are God-fearing.

Some, will even alternate and rotate their photos out, which are usually not theirs, so they have to switch them often. Some will say good morning, when it is actually evening in the States. (good tell-tale of another country!)

I wish there was a place to add the photos they put up, as I have saved several of them to my computer.

Other possible names: (usually no caps on names)

Trolls on WWF
by: Anonymous

I played along for a while. I am astute at recognizing these leaches and trolls. I also research names like others here do, and of course they never show up. You would think they would be smart enough to change their platform.

Philip Trevor from Austria is an Independent Contractor, Diamond Drilling and lost wife to skin cancer 3 yrs. ago He lives in Houston and has a home in Toronto. There is only one left in his family. Has daughter 9 yrs. old in boarding school in Tenn. and speaks poetic lingo.

Probably one and same as:

James Scott-from Netherlands- Independent contractor for KCA Deutag- wife slept with his friend, thus divorced 3 yrs. ago, lives in Columbus, Ohio, has 2 daughters, 10 and 16.

Possible, Bryan Scott (already not available, suddenly).

The 1st two listed use terms of endearment, honey, babe, darling, and dear. They both message more than play the game on WWF. Both use poetic messages. Both want ladies to use the App. Hangout- Both don't use good English. May use word, REALLY? a lot.

Good luck, ladies!!

Male "Widow" Scammers
by: Anonymous

Wow I thought I was the only one. Lol. Within the past 3-4 months I have had 3 different men tell me they are widows with a child(ren). I chalk them up and even tell my husband about them. The most recent is Albert Leonardo who sounded discouraged when I told him I am happily married after 20 years. Just received another (well, 3 in total) game requests from a Peter Wilson.

I usually give new game requestors a chance till they get too chatty and then I just block them.

He is in Barbados working but from Annapolis MD. He has a son - Morrison - 17.

This guy chatted with me for about 2 weeks, called me his "beautiful baby angel" (gag me), even though i asked him many times to please NOT.
Finally got around to asking me for money - $15,000, to buy tools for his job so he could finish his contract and get out of there. Once his contract is done he will pay me back in triple because then he will have like 2 million dollars."just" my 401k (which i do not have) will help him! Totally tried to lay a guilt trip on me for not helping him because he knows i can.

Men living in the South from Germany
by: Anonymous

Over the last month I have had about 4 men start games with me on WWF. These men all had many things in common. They were all older with grey hair and beards, all lived in the Southern US, all were widowers, and all had children abroad in boarding school. It has become such a pattern that I can almost tell right away when one of these scammers starts a game with me.

The first thing they ask is "are you married with kids?". When I say "yes" they all asked "do you live with your spouse?". It's almost like it's the same person...it's the same questions and the same story. If this isn't a red flag I don't know what is. None of them have asked for money or favors but I blocked them pretty quickly.

I have not reported any of these scammers because I doubt anything can or will be done about it.

Has a five year contract. Widowed, 54 years old with one son 14. Wants to talk privately on hangouts where it is safe and secure because wwf is not safe in Syria. I told him I would rather not and didn't hear from him for a few days. Came back trying to play on my sympathy of how he did't have any family close and wished he had a family like mine. Then he says his boss told him to get my g-mail address because wwf was not secure and could i send him i-tunes for a phone.

He didn't even sweet talk me!!! He did't put much effort into his scam. He's blocked! LOL

Similar story, met on WWF then chatted on Messenger. He told me he was an oil rig engineer, widow, single parent, blah, blah, blah. Long story short I told him I was not interested, he then quickly asked for an ITunes card. Told him "NO" and he blocked me.

A few weeks later I saw his profile on Plenty of Fish! He told me he was 52 yrs old living in Boston, his POF profile read he was 50 yrs old and living in Hawaii. To view his POF profile put in Google search engine: Plenty of Fish Roh4572. If you see this photo on WWF or any other site, don't respond, he's a loser and a liar!

Asks you for email and to chat on Hangouts. Seems extremely intelligent and types proper English grammer, so doesn't appear to be foreign.

Seemed to not be aware of time zone he was claiming to live in, would say it was very late when early morning in CA. Ignored pointed questions, cannot be located on background check, does not give email or phone number. Very sweet, falls in love with you within a week. He got very angry when I told him my family said he was an online scammer and I should block him. Got very derogatory to my family, said I insulted him, wanted to know why they had to know about us. I cant say he asked for money "yet" but he didn't get the chance with me. His methods follow online dating scammer profiles, so I blocked and reported him.

Ladies - play along! it's really kind of fun. My favorites are the ones that claim to be military (especially Army as my son has been in for 14 years and i have a little bit of understanding of what goes on there). I kept asking this one "4 Star General" where he had done his Airborne (he had an Airborne patch that I recognized on the shoulder of his profile pic).

He finally responded "my goodness - I'm in the Army! not the Air Force". when I broke the news to him that the patch on the photo of the Soldier's photo he was using stood for airborne division of the Army he just disappeared! Not resigned - just........disappeared!

I've had that happen a few times. Don't get how they do it. His name was Frank something or other.

Anderson Morrison, Jerome ?, Peter Kasper

I chatted with 3 of these jerks who all had the same profession of being an independent contractor on these oil rigs. The first one was Anderson Morrison who claimed to be a widow with 2 kids in boarding school. Very poor grammar for an engineer. Said he hadn’t seen his kids in 2 years?? Was in love with me right away. Begged me multiple times to send him a $1000 iPhone so he could talk to me underwater. Story was inconsistent, and started getting very aggressive. Then, when I wouldn’t cough up the phone, stated he wasn’t In his right mind and asked to be left alone!

Then, Jerome, who was supposedly on a platform off Italy suddenly was begging me to send money to California so he and his crew could get water to drink, as they were seriously low! When he finally believed me that I was in debt, he stopped texting.

The latest was 1 day (now I’m finally spotting them earlier) of chatting with widowed guy with 2 kids. Poor grammar, same job, called me same name as Jerome did "Pretty." That was the end of that.

Now, you’re probably wondering what’s wrong with me that I didn’t catch on earlier and block these jerks right away? Well, they are very clever and they play on your emotions, butter you up with compliments when you need them the most, and then they go in for the kill.

NEVER AGAIN!! Thank God I’m smart enough to have woken up in time and not have sent money!!!

Anyone playing WWF with him. I played for a long time with him before he made any romantic overtures. Even after he got romantic with me, it was a long time before he hit me up for a google card to get his PC fixed. Then it was a cell phone for his daughters birthday. Then he wanted $2600 for an electric jacket so he could dive into the sea to fix something on the oil,rig to finish his contract.

When I said no, he said $500 would pay to,have the jacket shipped to him. It never ends. They always have something they need and we are the only one they have to turn to. They can be very sweet and tender, until you annoy him and then they get ugly.

Fortunately for him a business associate was able to help with half, but could I help him with the rest?

NOT! He just couldn't believe I would not help him, even cried, a lot. I'm sure I heard someone in background coaching him. Really a 54 year old man with no friends, and no contingency plan for ar such a large contract. Oh ya that's right, his lady friends were the plan. Not this one, baby.

Widowers, one with a child in boarding school, one 59 other 63. One called and had an accent.

I cut off talking with him. Did not get far with me since it was two at the same time and a bit strange. Ashamed of myself for giving my number for texting. I have played WWF and trusted the game players. I have a friend on the west Coast who got sucked into a Facebook scammer that cost or lost to her $250,000.

You read it right.

She was a recent widow just sold her house. He developed a rapport and phone relationship with her and talked her into an investment scheme She was vulnerable and as she said Stupid!!! They should be called Scummers! Beware of These and all Scammers.

He got mad and said it was for other stuff. He left to go to Turkey and got there and his credit card was compromised by buying the iPhone and needed my money.

I said you need to contact the bank. He said the bank would not help until Tuesday. I said you have friends other than me. He said he was embarrassed and never been in this situation before. I blocked him and then he tried to friend me on FB.

Played along with him for awhile. I realized he was a scammer when he fell in love in a couple of days and wanted to retire and spend all his time with me and his daughter, who is 12 and in boarding school in New York. His wife cheated on him and left him. He is "a lonely man" wanting to be with someone who will love him. Is from Hungary and lives in Dallas in a 4 bedroom home,

I asked about a pool and of course he has one. Decided to push the button and say I was coming for a visit, but "baby" I have to go to work on the rig in Gulf of Mexico. Sent a picture on the beach in a winter coat (in May) and when questioned about that it was the winds blow. Decided to go visit there, but that wasn't allowed by the company and the Pirates would get me.

On and on. Then he needed money for an ITunes card, then he needed "life jackets and his bank account was messed up because someone had stolen something, told him I mailed it (not). Then he got frantic and started to get ugly about it. Then needed ITunes card and I told him I was out of money. I Knew he was a scammer and was playing WORDS with other women, which he denied. Told him I was going to lunch with friends and out to shop.

I told him I didn't have the funds to purchase the card. I then asked for $100 so I can feed my son until I get paid. He said he didn't have it and that's why he was asking me. Nope. I asked him about his wife and how did she die. He didn't want to talk about that.

He uses the name reach4dsky and says his name is Harry west and says that he's an oil rigger contractor who lives in Fresno, California. Talked to me for 2 days than asked me for 150 dollars to send to UK to his mom. I asked him to take a pic of himself with today's date written on a piece of paper. He got mad and said I was making fun of him. He says he's Danish but couldn't speak the native language which I just died laughing inside.

Watch out for him and he states he has a limited plan and need to talk to you on Google hangout. I am so sick of these scamming Africans begging driving me crazy. Ladies beware I believe this is not his first time his account states he started playing may 6 2018

Latest - Luis Fredrick and John Mark. As soon as John Mark mentioned the oil rig I was all set! There was also a guy that was in the import export business and he was from England but was over in Turkey trying to get his freight unloaded when what??

He needed $20,000 to pay but he only had $17,500. LOL sucks to be him!! Lots of dearie, dear, beautiful, etc...good to see so many people can spot these characters a mile away!!

Identify a scammer
by: Anonymous

I have lost count of the number of would-be scammers who have bothered me on WWF. Murphy Harrison is the latest and I've seen his photo before with a different name. These guys re-invent themselves all over the place with different names, photos and variations on the same old sob stories.

The photos usually show a guy who does not at all look like a WWF player and the opening gambit is often just 'Hi' followed by a series of general questions about where you live and the weather - and he may call you 'dear' which I hate!

If you really want to wipe them out of your game, it's best not to have a photo of yourself on display.

And I am sure they read the comments on this site as well!

I know each of these experiences with these scammers all sound the same. Please don't believe anything they say to you no matter how convincing they may be. Don't buy them iTunes cards & do not believe it when they say they are going to pay you back.

This last guy I was chatting with I finally confronted him..David Richard..and he said he was a doctor in Syria with a son in boarding school in Vegas.His sons named is Kelvin which seems to be all there children's names that and Alandra.
So when I finally called him out it was such a scary experience

Went from I love you so so much to immediately calling me a stupid woman and he asked me if I knew about Nigerian men.

This is so so scary that these men are preying on innocent women who fall for their attention of caring for you.

Just don't believe them as they just want your money that is it.

Scammer. I Didn't get much information from him. After speaking to a friend we looked him up on Facebook and the guy is a fake. Names linked to him Colin Parker where he may get his story line, Anorue Amaku from Nigeria, Thomas Nathan also part of his story line (A G Drilling & Civil Engineering) Muhammad.Muzaffan.

Scary stuff. While playing words with friends, I asked him a bunch of questions. The scammer says his wife died of cancer 5 years ago, has a 12 year old daughter who has a German Shepherd named Jimmy. Daughter lives with his "mum" in Sacramento, CA. He said he has been living in Scotland for five months working on some sort of oil pipe renovation. Began using words such as honey, babe, and dear after two chats.

Also, asked if I was looking to get married? BEWARE, be careful.

This guy started out pretty good. I pushed him to email rather than hangouts like they usually want. He finally did and the grammar difference between chatting in the game and in the email! WHOA.

He was born in Warsaw Poland, claimed he lived in Houston Texas, but was currently overseas doing a job. He is supposedly 55, widowed, no kids (there's a new one) and holding out for the right woman. Told him I'm not looking for a partner.

After about 3-5 days he did the "need $100 iTunes card to pay for his phone or it will be cut off". Not my problem dude. He wanted to know why I would not do this. Would I prefer his phone be cut off.

Well I've blocked him. So sick of these scammers.

Wants to retire to England but has to clear personal belongings and money in "chestbox" which the "Authorities" will not release until a charge is paid.

She fell for it. Unbelievable.

I didn't find out until the money had gone. Told the police, Action Fraud and the Bank but the money had gone and he is obviously outside British jurisdiction. Didn't do marital relationships any favours either.

Ladies watch out for James Markson. I met him on Word Chums, oil rigger, wife died four yrs ago, 10 yr old son in a boarding school, going to nigeria for a contract, asked me for iTunes cards, and go to Western Union to get
Packages to send to him in Nigeria. He called me sweety, babe, my Queen, wants me by his side, retiring after the contract in nigeria, same MO as every other oil rig scammer, so please be careful.

Something's they say sound true because they look up everything on the internet. I asked questions from the beginning and some of these guys answers were right, but they look up everything on the internet, at times he would take long to text , as he was looking things I asked up on the internet.

Please Beware of all this!! Never send a dime to anyone you never met, I didn't and never would, please don't fall for all the lovy dovy crap, I did until he asked for itunes cards and Western Union. They will sweet talk you to death.

Could not answer basic questions about Afghanistan including what time zone it's in. Got mad when I didn't express attraction and resigned the game.

Peterson Franklyn Johnson was my first scammer. The usual story - widower with teenage daughter. Working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Asking for stuff. Ditched him through hangouts and blocked him. Just the next day another one appears. Felix Apin the usual chat up lines told them both I’m married, Happy not in the mood for another scammer, but this one never gave up.

Drove me mad chatting either on WWF or on hangouts. Wanted me to accept a parcel of gold , which was a definite no. Then pay for sons medical fees which I have a photo of his conversation asking for money. That was a no. Then a lyca Mobile phone card. Fortunately I had never heard of them.

That also was a no. Shortly after being dumped by him as I wasn’t cooperative in helping with his demands.

Steven Smiles appears as an army general in the peacekeeping forces in Afghanistan. Another one wanting me to pay for a dating site and set up his profile. He was ditched by the end of the day. Then another popped up called Holloway Brown. I’m sure they are all the same person. I told him I was sick of being chatted up and to leave me alone. He finally got the message.

Next day said California and today said he was in NJ. Called out that one as well. Said he travels a lot. lol.

Ladies do you not understand what this is all about. All of these people you are playing with are a group of Nigerians that are sitting in Internet cafes trying to con you out of money one way or another with a sob story. All of the photos have been stolen from either Facebook or Instagram, and you are never speaking with the person in the picture. Humor them if you want but never send them money or give them your phone no or email address.

You can spot them a mile off as they want to get to know you, think they are in love with you, send you lovely messages in ridiculous English. They are mainly oil rig workers, doctors of some kind or in the forces, nearly always divorced with children. Ask them lots of questions, you will soon catch them out, but remember if it sounds to good to be true it will be, please don’t be fooled!!!!!

After having 5 men fall in love with me in two months, I cut them off. Told them I am happily married and I have nothing to give them. I now started playing with Garret Derek. He seemed nice. He told me his wife died in car accident. He lived in Colorado and had two daughters but they did not live near him.

He said he thinks about me all the time and wants to send me pictures he took. I opened a new email and gave it to him. He said he couldn't do that or go on FB. He sent me his phone number, I didn't say a word about it. Every time I got on WWF he would tell me how beautiful I am and he thinks about me all the time.

I waited 4 days, sent a message, " it is time, I hope you are very happy and find what you want." Three days later, he leaves me a message, his daughter is dying, she is in a coma. I told him I would pray for her and I am sorry, let me know how she is. He has not responded. I think he wanted me to text him to get my number. He will be waiting a long time. I also notice, as someone else has said, he has very high scores.

Funny, with such a high score, I would think he could carry on a conversation, other than telling me how beautiful I am. He will never get my number. This is what happens when you worry about people.

This is the newest one for me. He is widowed, wife and daughter died in a car crash and he has one son Kelvin who is in a boarding school in Vegas. David is a head dr in Syria and coming home soon on vacation.

Wants to marry me. Lol

So this is the second time this has happened and he gave me access to his bank account that had over a million dollars. and he wanted me to transfer money to his agent to get home and to two contractors that were finishing a hospital he had bought in San Francisco.

Always asks for iTunes cards for himself and son.
So he wanted to give me $150,000 and transfer money to his agent and suddenly the password and account number wouldn't work.

"I don't know what to do now" he said the bank needs him to come into the bank to sign documents to reactivate his account. I said I wasn't going to get him an iTunes card. Surprised he's not talking to me now.

I've blocked so many of these jokers.

Tip: set your settings on your WWF's so your not getting asked to play someone new. It's funny how easily they change when you say no!!

No more I love you forever blah blah blah. No Matter what don't believe anything they say. They aren't going to pay you back.

Hello, I have been playing Words With Friends for years and I guess I did not think that these scammers would be on these kind of nerdy sites, lol. I accepted his game request and then he would comment nice move etc, was very proper and nice then asked for my cell # and we texted and he went into premature statements of affection.

He would even send me You Tube videos of songs he liked. He sent me photos (which I have) of a very handsome man. In one photo he was holding up a piece of paper with my name on it declaring his love for me. He said he was from Luxembourg and went to the University of Leeds and had his Masters degree in Engineering.

I was testing him and asking about what dept of Engineering and what did he do his thesis on, he would not reply for a bit till he looked it up. he even sent me photos of his childhood. I did send him photos of me before I caught on and of course he had my cell number.

He finally called and I could tell from the first second he spoke that he was black with a soft Jamaican/Nigerian accent. In that instant I started swearing and called him out on it and after 2 minutes of me yelling he hung up. I have blocked that number and now a few days later he friend requested me on Facebook and he called and texted from a different number.

The first number when I searched it said Rhode Island, and showed his name when he called (thought you had to call from the rig control room you jerk). The second number came up from Texas.

He never got a chance to ask me for money. I have reported him to Words With Friends. Don't fall for these guys or girls!

Working on an oil rig, his wife died, had a 15 year old son, his dad was from Italy and his mum from Luxembourg, very charming, he is retiring soon and wants to find someone to spend the rest of his life with.

The profile pic is of a very handsome man with a black jumper and his hands in front of him, this photo is of an actor and model called Edoardo Costa.

You are actually talking to a group of scammers, you can tell you are talking with different people as some can speak better English than others.

Kelly will be telling you he will come to where ever you are after his contract finishes on the oil rig, then a couple of weeks before his contract is due to end there is a problem on the rig and he has a problem accessing his funds, so he wants you to email someone, they will send some money to your account and then you send it back to another account.

Don’t be fooled ladies, this is money laundering, they even say you can keep a portion for yourself.

Have a look on the web, Edoardo Costa is well known, look at his photos on Facebook and Instagram.

Has anyone had any interactions with Vincent Thompson 445 on WWF2? I do not know what to think about this guy. And that is if that is his real name.

HE is pictured with a little white dog. I do not know what to make of him. Fell in love with me real quick and when I tried to tell him he wasn't he insisted he was. I said I was married and he said I was lying to him.

I resigned many games with him but he keeps coming back. I have never had to block anyone because resigning games usually works but it not with him. I am not mean or cruel but it is feeling stalkerish at this point.

Was Scammed
by: Unbelievable2

Hello, I can't believe how huge this oil rig scam is, my friend told me about this after I met a so called real charm. Everything they said online he asked me, forgot to load his phone before he left for Nigeria, West Africa, said babe I have to talk to you and text you from Africa, asked if I could send him an iTunes or amazon phone card, asked me to receive and send Western Union packages to him in Nigeria.

His wife died 4 yrs ago, has a 10 year old son in a boarding school, they get you to trust them and call you sweety, babe and tell you when they get back they will be with you, said I make him so happy since his wife died, said babe can't believe I fell in love with you.

Ladies please be careful, it is all BS and I was even careful. They get mad when you ask questions or won't send them phone cards or do the Western Union job, this is their MO I learned, never thought this would ever happen to me.

My guys name Was James Markson, from Baltimore Maryland, not even sure this is his real name, I highly doubt it!!;

Problem with ‘equipments’ which he has to pay for and needs over $20,000 to fix it so he can get out of there to be with me.

Be on alert for Anderson E, also goes by the name of Anderson Eros, and profile name Andersoneros212 on Words with Friends 2.

I confirmed on a reverse image lookup that the photo he is using has been used by other scam artists. He asked to switch to Google Hangouts--as did 3 other new to Word players this past month--alleging that it would be easier for him to chat because he worked on an oil rig.

After the premature flattery he begged and pleaded that I buy him some Apple iTunes cards so he could buy some more online books. All of his actions fit the profile of what Apple calls a iTunes card scam, which has accelerated in recent months.

John McKenna - dangerous scammer
by: Anonymous

Be on alert ladies!!! This man (real name or not?!) John McKenna has conned me out of over £20,000 in constant cries for help with lending him money to pay for supplies for his men on the oil rig, and even bank fees to access his account.

Don’t fall for his lies!! If he says he’s on an oil rig, running a company heading the project, has millions coming at the end of the project, is 58 years old, has two children in boarding school with a nanny to take care of them while he’s away working!! He will con you.

Gradually over months he will build up your confidence with him and reel you in!! Then he will slowly start asking for large amounts of money to be transferred into different accounts. All of which are fake and will go to someone else.

Once you’ve parted with money... it’s gone!!! You’ll never get any of it back!! Don’t be fooled!!!

Be on guard.

James Scotty. Same old unoriginal story. Works for shell, dead wife, works in US, had a photo of a middle aged Caucasian guy. Really disjointed English and didn’t seem to get my jokes like "oh beam me up Scotty " and then "I like to see your beam Scotty".

Played with them (assuming it was a group of scammers) before I got bored and blocked him.
I enjoyed telling them that I had no idea how to spend my millions since my dear husband had left.
Best not to tell them how I knew they were scammers as that may only make them slightly less unbelievable next time.

I resent that they target middle aged women and have no qualms about making fun of them (wasting their time).

More WWF Scammers
by: Anonymous

I had 3 of these guys pop up while playing WWF within a very short period of time. The first guy was named Gray Freeman, the second was Mark (forgot last name) and the third was Michael Benson.

All were widowers and all worked on oil rigs or some semblance of an oil rig. All had children. None got so far as to ask me for money or anything else. All asked if I was married, which I am, and I told them so. The second one (Mark) just stopped playing with me after several chats, so he must have known I was being guarded.

Once I heard that #3 also worked on an oil rig, I knew this had to be a scam. So I blocked them all and reported them. It was rather nice chatting with the first one, but he was too "friendly" and it was getting out of hand.

So long, scammers!

Similar story

I was playing with a person called Nicholas. Supposedly originally from Denmark, lost his parents at a young age, moved to Tampa, divorced for one year, had a daughter visiting him over Easter. We played a number of games, and in the end he asked for my phone number.

I wasn't comfortable with that as I am married and reminded him of that. Immediately after, he asked me to purchase a $100 Canadian iTunes card for his daughter and would I send him information on how he could repay me.

Things didn't smell right to me so I did a Google search and found this site. What a surprise! I confronted him and he said he was sorry and that it was tough where he was living. What a sad way to live by trying to scam trusting people.

I enjoyed playing with him because he was a strong opponent. I am even starting to question that and wonder if they have some sort of program to fill in the best possible words.

Ah well, must be more careful and maybe only play with real friends.

Yep, same story as I am reading here from many others. This person messaged me on WWF and then quickly asked for my cell phone number and we began exchanging texts. Then we actually called each other a few times. Smooth talker, excellent writing skills, that's why I wasn't so sure off the bat that he was a scammer. But when he started asking for the iTunes cards, I knew I'd been scammed. I was so angry with myself for falling for his lines of crap, thankfully I did not send him anything.

He had a similar story - working as an engineer on an oil rig somewhere in England. Resides in New Haven, CT in US. Has a 9 year old boy who has a nanny and is in boarding school when he is away at work. Wife died several years ago, looking for his soul mate.

It taught me a valuable lesson, that I am vulnerable to sweet talking, nice looking guys because I really want to be on someone's mind. That's why I engaged with him. Only lasted 9 days, blocked him on everything.

I have played wwf for years. This is the first time I was contacted by this creep. He called me sweetheart after the second day of chatting, something totally alien to me. Then everything was honey.

He was in love with me by the end of the week.

I did feel flattered at the time. Next we had exchanged emails, then I was on hangouts and we chatted for another few days. Then he asked me to get an iTunes card. As I haven't got a lot of spare cash I just got the cheapest one around , never gave it another thought, and after that it was can you buy me a Canada Goose Jacket which I then realised what he was up to.

I just refused him, and next he wanted to know if I could travel abroard and if so could I pick up some part for his oil rig company in the Gulf of Mexico. I refused that saying I couldn't dump everything for him as I had to much to do.

Next he wanted me to send money to his Nigerian workers as they were taken hostage on an oil rig that he owned. I told him I had no money. Blocked him from WWF and hangouts.

After getting rid of him another one popped up on WWF, with similar chit chat but he was a nurse on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. He worked for Exxon Mobile, and we are still chatting on hangouts.

He had been diving off the rig he and 3 friends found gold coins worth millions of dollars but he needed to send the coins to me for safe keeping and wanted my address, but the answer was no as I don't want anything to do with it and told him that there were too many scams in this country of a similar vain.

After that he wanted $420 dollars to pay for doctors for his son who had appentistis. I never replied for days and he kept sending messages through hangouts etc. Eventually I just told him that I had been scammed before and I was so cross I couldn't speak with him.

His name is Felix Apin by the way and the photo which is clearly not him as it doesn't resemble his gmail photo. I have changed my profile picture to stop these idiots from contacting me. I feel stupid that they have got under my skin. But if it doesn't feel right then don't do it.

Oil rigger scam
by: Anonymous

I met my oil rigger on WWF too. His name is Michael Osborne. Smooth talker and says all the right things. From Newark New Jersey and has a 13 year old daughter. His daughter has a nanny with her since his wife died in a fire three yrs ago. Michael was born in Germany. He is in the North Sea on a personal contract. Once he finishes this contract, is going to retire.

While communicating with him, he has had several problems with equipment on the oil rig that he has been responsible to repair at his expense. Of course he has no way to pay for them. He writes the sweetest messages that any woman who has not had the best of relationships would love to hear. He sends love songs everyday. He will ask you to marry him. He says he is religious. He preaches every Sunday to his colleagues.

After communicating on WWF, he asked for my cell number. Now he has a package that he wants me to pay the holding fee (held by a security company that is getting ready to fold) and have the package sent to me until he gets home!

Not sure if I should believe any of this after reading about all these oil rig scammers!

A couple of scammers
by: Anonymous

Mark Tyler started playing and chatting with me 23rd March 2018. Dead wife, been single ever since, no mention of kids and he oversees the drilling and maintaining of the engines. He's from Florida and working on a rig in California. His photo is a professional one wearing a suit with tie and he has grey hair. His english is terrible!

I know he's a scammer but I'm playing along for fun and I share the chats with my husband. Waiting for him to ask for money, which I would never give. He did mention his payment for this contract to be $250,000 so I know something is going to go wrong and he will need money to tie him over. Bring it on!

Another one I am playing is Brandon Coffey. We've been playing since 12th Feb 2018 and he signed up on the 2nd Feb. I had my doubts about him from the start, but he stated early on that he has never been married and has no kids. He did want me to go to Google Hangouts, but I said no, so he has been continuing to chat in WWF.

Yesterday when I asked him what he did for work he said he's a Sergeant in the army serving in Afghanistan with 4 months to go, so that has pretty much confirmed he's one. He knows I'm married, so hasn't hit on me as such, but wants to be friends.

I always check the history of each person that I start to play and if they have a game score in the double digits then they are clearly scammers. I tell them straight away I am married and they end the game faster than it started.

There are others I chat with, but they have a history of playing for 4-6 years.

PATRICK LUIS says he’s 64 years old, from Russia, living in New York City. He came to America 20 years ago to start a chemical business but turned to being a sailor. PATRICK LUIS is a sweet talker and pulls on your heartstrings. Basically preparing you for his scam. He told me that his sons birthday was coming up and wants to send him money so that he can go out and celebrate with his friends. He claims that he can’t get into his account being that he’s out to sea and doing anything like that is not allowed due to security reasons.

He had so many inconsistencies in his story. Bad spelling and bad grammar as well. He will keep pressuring you and saying how it would mean so much to him and his son and of course promises to pay you back. He asked me to send $500 through western union. Of course I was smart enough to realize what was going on.

Once I finally put my foot down and told him I wasn’t going to do it, he basically said ok bye. Onto the next victim is what I say. PATRICK LUIS, remember this name.

He’s a bad person.

Don’t fall for it.!!

Has anybody come across a man going by Michael Morgan who is an oil rig engineer with a daughter named Alondra and is sweet talking and asking for lots of money after saying a signed 4.3 million dollar contract and gets angry when no money is sent?

Sends lots of model like pictures and has daughter email you saying she is excited to call you mom? Story matches everyone else’s that’s commented on here also.

WWF Oil Rig/Syria/Turkey etc scams

I’ve had numerous people contact me. Lody Jimmy, Captain Mark Miller, Eric Lowdry to name but a few. Same old questions, same sob story about being a widower and a child in school in a different country.

When asked what I do for fun I now tell them stupid things like I go deep sea diving looking for mermaids which is met with a repose like ‘that’s good dear, are you married?’ I tell them I’m a polygamist and looking for my next husband. They don’t read my responses and reply with their scripted responses.

I’ve reported loads of them but realised there is no point as they pop up with another name. You can tell immediately who they are as they have joined the same day as they invite you to play and always message with ‘dear’ or ‘friend’ and want to get to know you better.

I’m really quite surprised that people fall for their scams

Oil Rig Supervisor

Wow! Ditto ditto ditto. To all the above. My oil riggers were:

Scott Williams, Erik Douglass and Luis Robinson. All with kids. All working on oil rigs. Erik and Luis were immediately blocked after a week long dialogue with Scott Williams when it finally clicked. Something is off. Scott Williams is looking for his soul mate. Wife died 3 years ago and he was left with daughter Mary 14yrs old. After 4 days he was head over heals in love with me. He asked tons of questions. It was when he asked if I knew what an Itunes card was used for. I said to buy music. He replied yes but you can buy things and work with documents.

He called me dear in every communication. English was very broken. He was from Madrid Spain but moved to US when he was 8 and now lives in Los Angelos CA. I checked his name, his phone number and email address and nothing validated. He sais he did not like to argue. He was a lover not a fighter but when I told him i was on to him he went ballistic. Said "If you leave me you are making a huge mistake"!! Blocked him,his number and reported him to WWF.

He than gets you to send money to try and bring her to you so everyone will be happy and then something happens and he begs for more and by this time you have sent your heart your money and your trust and on the way to the airport he gets into a car accident then you finally come to and stop answering the text or calls and report it.

I don't know if he uses other profiles or names since I was unable to find any but he does have a lot of mutual friends on the words with friends game. He went inactive after he targeted me claiming he wasn't on anymore due only to the fact words indicates with a green light when you are on line.

50+ year old Army General over in Syria who is suppose to be retiring in 4 months. Has a big house in Buffalo, NY. and his wife had died in childbirth with his only son who is 14 yrs old.

First started messaging me on WWF and was calling me his beautiful angel and asking if we could be best friends. Only sorta talked to him 2-3x when he started professing his love for me even though I said I was married.

I started playing him a bit to see what he was up to and then he started talking about having money in an overseas account that he needed to pull the money out of ASAP before they closed but he couldn't do it from where he was.

He was wanting me to get this 2 million dollars for him... Really????

Even sent me an email of where to go. I started googling scams and seen how one person who was in my situation had been swindled and when she broke it off her house became vandalized and she had to move for her own safety.

FREAKED ME OUT I blocked him on words and stopped talking on the hangout app he had me download. Sounds like there is more than one person playing on peoples emotions. Some a little more unbelievable than others.

He asked not for money but a iTunes Vanilla Card. I told him I was going to run a background check and he vanished!

He went by the name Benson Jean. He said he worked in the gulf of Mexico on an oil rig. Made good money and had a Mercedes. Was also widowed with 2 young daughters who he really loved. Showed pictures of the girls and their adoring dad. He woed me for 7 weeks before he told me he wanted to start his own business and needed money to get the paperwork started.

Davieschurch and Frankwiliamss8.9
by: Anonymous

Yep, I've been Scammed. I don't usually interact on WWF, and if a guy tries to engage me, I quit the game. But, Davieschurch had such a sad luck story and he told me I was beautiful. He was "from" the netherlands, currently in UK and soon going to Alabama to sign a contract there. Yep, in the oil rig business. Wife died of pelvic cancer. Only "womans" he ever with. He was putting his 13 year old daughter in boarding school in the UK. He wanted to go to Google hangouts to be able to talk more "private." I got wise, quit the game and blocked him.

Next was Frankwiliamss8.9. Yes, one L and two S's, which should have been my first clue. He was in the Royal dutch army, from the Netherlands, an orthopedic surgeon who was a peacekeeper with the UN treating soldiers in Afghanistan. I have to admit at first I was pretty intimidated by that, mostly because of how he said it. Then he asked if I have ever met an orthopedic surgeon before, and I am like, who in the world asks that??? So I asked him if my podiatric surgeon niece counts.

I don't think he got the joke, and I was starting to get smart. I mean, it wasn't a joke, but I was trying to show him he was being a jerk. What are the odds both these guys are from the Netherlands originally. So I googled his name and found out the scam. I got back on the Words with Friends chat and asked if he had ever been to the US and he said, OH Yes, he was a surgeon for five years at Massachusetts general.

I said, you know that's easy to check out. Then i told him I was smarter than him any day of the week and that he was a scammer and that I was reporting him and blocking him. At first I don't think he got it, then he sent me this scathing text about "rich" white american women and how we owe him and he is only taking what is his because of the slave trade, yada yada. - so there is the motive!!! then he called me a worm organ.

So now, these guys are coming out of the woodwork. Yes, they call me dear and they call me beautiful. I suspect it's either the same guy or a couple of guys. One clue I noticed is they usually have been "playing since" that same day, or within a couple of days.

AND, they do not usually play very challenging words. I am done chatting AND playing with strangers.

ugh.

I’ve had 4 guys on WWF that were scammers. The first one goes by Raymond Clark - oil rig engineer wants to go to Hangouts. He was from Chicago but was working on a rig in Sweden. Wife died of cancer and had 1 son in college.

Second one was Chogan Anoki who wanted to talk on What’s App.

Third was Robert-Maurice. He Said he was from my home state by had no idea where the city I said I lived in was. He should have.

The fourth one was Patrick Ryan Cardone - an orthopedic surgeon from Topeka. Named 2 hospitals that he worked at but was under contract for 5 years with the UN serving in Syria to keep the Army healthy.

None of these scammers asked me for anything. I called all of them out except Robert-Maurice because he was silent. Chogan and Patrick got very mad at me when I called them out.

Raymond said he didn’t have a good job and that’s why he did it. Blocked all of them.

Most of these guys use 2 first names and want to chat elsewhere.

This is message I received from "Davis George" after just two weeks of texting. Got me to sign up for Hangouts too. Works on an oil rig, about to retire, wife and oldest daughter died of polysistic kidney disease. He’s from Brazil, father was from Brazil, mother was from Cleveland. Daughter Alondra is in boarding school in Cleveland. Never got to the asking money part, glad a googled this and got out fast.

My dear I'm usually not the kind of person that would write a love letter, but I thought I'd do this for you because you are the the most wonderful thing in my life right now. I know we're far apart -- but hey, like I said, distance means so little when you have this strong feels for someone.....Never did I imagine that I would ever meet you, especially not in the site where i found you........God has got his own reasons for us to meet and come this far....The best thing about loving and being hurt is that you get to know what true love really is. For as gold is tested in fire, and so will love be perfected in pain..1 Corinthians, 13:1-13 say....I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell. I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have the faith needed to move mountains-but if I have no love, I am nothing. I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned-but if I have no love, this does me no good......Corinthians 13 also say Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude. It is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrong doing. It does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres.......1 Timothy 1:5 also say, Love comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.....Just because something good ends doesn't mean something better won't begin.....The mind is what should listen, but it is the heart that should speak.......1 Corinthians 13:13 say There are three things that remain - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love........When your heart begins to desire another person's happiness, this isn't some trifling amusement; this is true love.......Hebrews 11:1 say Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.......1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love......1 John 3:18 also say...Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.

All lies so do not fall for the SCAM if you give them money they will take it and block you. Keep your 💰 as you do not know who you are sending it to and it could be used to promote terrorism against our own country.

I have stated before that in 2018 we will not be supporting these Scam people so we meed to shut down their operations of preying on women.

He needed $2500 for a plane ticket to get to town to get money from his company to complete his project. I am now off that game. Does anyone know this guy? He has sent a couple of pictures of him. He said his wife and son were killed in an accident several years ago.

More scammers!
by: Anonymous

The photos they use are a dead giveaway - either a real hunk (and let's face it, hunks do not play WWF!) or a guy in a suit or military uniform. Their English is usually very poor and when they do decide to resign, they often simply disappear and don't appear anywhere. A search for a friend or player usually doesn't turn them up, so how are they somehow gatecrashing WWF without registering!!

Here are some names I have had recently - but I am convinced they change names and photos all the time:

Wilson Franklin 121,
Jeff Scott,
Michael Adolf,
Jerry Eric,
Fred Gilmore.

What I am curious about is where they get the same questions and answers. I’ve had 3 widowed oil field engineers all ask me if I believe in long distance relationships, and do I have faith I will find my soulmate. Then they answer their own questions using the exact same language.

When I called the third guy on it he immediately resigned. I’ve also had 3 tell me how their favorite colors are red and white for pure hearts and love or some such bs but also using the same language.

More On "Sean"
by: Anonymous

So an update on the WWF2 user profile of "Sean" His photo shows a shirtless hunk who would appeal to any woman unless she is blind. All part of the scheme. He begins to chat you. Kind of exudes a bad boy person with his tatoos and 6 pak abs.

First claimed to be a Marine then changed it to Army. First said his last name was Oaks then changed it to Epps. Maybe suffers from dementia? Spins the tale of raising his 2 boys alone since the death of his wife. Of course he falls madly in love with you.

He will manipulate you and deceive you and charm you until you start to fall in love with him. He'll ask you to marry him even if you are currently married. A worthless piece of human garbage who preys on a woman with any kind of emotional vulnerability.

Then after what seems like an unfathomable amount of dancing around the real focus of his intentions a series of financial crises arise. His bank account gets blocked. His son's birthday is coming up and he has no money to buy him a gift. His car breaks down and he is short on cash to get it fixed. Maybe his military buddies won't help him so he has to ask for it from his new online fiancee LMAO Ladies, really just don't chat with ANY men on this site.

They are all scammers. If you are married, talk to your husband not some pathetic scheming scam artist who couldn't care less about you and only wants to mess with your emotions, break your heart and steal your money with empty emotions.

He said he was an engineer on an oil rig in the gulf of Mexico. Everything went on with the chatting and then he told me he had good news. He said that he was go get paid for his 10 month stint on the rig and it was to be $1,700,000 but he wanted the company to have it delivered to his wife via United Nations delivery.

WWF Bogus Identities and Profiles

OMG it's so rediculous that it's almost amusing, if it weren't so frustrating. My Mother plays on WWF also and between the 2 of us, almost all of the recent men who have reached out to play are in the Oil Business, ALL widowed, ALL have a kid, not 2 or 3, always just 1.

ALL have been widowed for 5/6 years. Not 2 or 3, not 7, but all 5 or 6. All flatter you and build you up and somehow fall in love with us (absolute strangers). They also appear to be a bit old to have kids of the ages they claim.

No one has asked me for money as yet but it's so obvious what's going on. My mother is 75, and I worry more about her falling prey. She's impressionable and kind.

Fortunately she doesn't have any money. I'd like to see all the pics posted of these scammers!

I asked what it's like in Ashville (this was after he was madly in love with me and wanted to marry me! So obviously I asked about my new home!!) he copied the info from Tourist Board website but then added it was what his father told him! Oh and the best part - when his contract is finished on the rig he will be paid 10 million US$!!!!

I have now changed my name and removed my photo from WFF.

I've been playing for a few years and I haven't received many invites for games and I normally just play with friends.

Now I'm overwhelmed and everyone wants to chat. I started talking to a soldier in Syria as I figured he was lonely. He sent pictures and was very normal for awhile. All of a sudden he needs money to get his money out of storage and needs I tune cards for his son.

Gary Gargle is his name but its his not real name so I blocked him.

I hate that these scanners use our military men to extort money. What a shame. Where do they get these pictures? ??? Gargle is in his military uniform. That soldier doesn't even know he is being used.

Do not send any nude pictures as you could be black mailed or they could put it on different web sites.

Date someone local if possible. All these guys sometimes work in groups to see what you are saying and when one can get money another one will move in with information you gave another guy and then they split your money.

I'm so glad I found all these comments. I have been chatting with two different men on WWF and both were independent contractors on oil rigs.

One was a widower with a 6 year old daughter. I got suspicious and googled scammers. I just want to play the game. I didn't realize it was a dating site.

Too good to be true
by: cathy

I too was almost taken. At first it was all these sweet words that would melt your socks off. I figured it was because he was Italian, So he said. He was a conocco contractor on a oil rig and had to get this job done before Christmas so he could be home by Christmas and spend it with me. A lot of what he was saying was copied and fake.

Had nothing to do with me. Did'nt make sense. He had a daughter who lived in Chicago with a Nanny. He had a hotel there given to him by his deceased Father and wanted to put the money he got from this job into the hotel.

Marino Lifonti is a fake ladies. He was furious when I started asking him questions about all this. He said I was lying and wanted proof. Excuse me. He told me he was born in Chicago and shortly after that moved to Italy with his parents.

He came back here and married. He was married for 8 years. Wife died of kidney failure. I could go on and on.

Ladies just be aware. Don't get taken.

He contacted me via Words With Friends and said he was as contractor in the oil rig industry and that he was going to Africa for a "big job". Asked me to send him a phone to his assistant in Nigeria and then said he needed money after chatting for a few months.

This guy scammed me...beware!

Beware
by: Anonymous

Here is another one, Andre Cabot or also spells his name Andrea, same profile, wife died of cancer, two daughters, 21 and 17. Owns his own oil drilling and gas company. Lives in California.

After 2 weeks of communicating he had to leave for Mexico for a contract job. Would not talk on the phone but only through WWF or email or chat room. VERY romantic, professed his love in songs, words, ecards. After 6 weeks received an email asking for $34,000 to fix his equipment specifically his crane so he could finish the job and be with me!!

The End! Blocked him from everything. Please be careful!!!! They are quite loving and say all the right things. 👹

They are absolute scum and scammers preying on middle age women with money.

They keep coming out of the woodwork, these hopeful widowers with one child and working in the oil industry! Michael Roland gave me quite a flowery spiel, but when I picked him up on his poor English and a couple of glaring factual inaccuracies (told me he's recently been to Yugoslavia!) he was very miffed indeed.

Don't waste your time with these characters. They are often dressed in suit and tie or a military uniform - probably hoping to impress the ladies...!

WWF “Engineer on oil rig” scammer
by: Melissa

I am also a victim of s scammer. Marino Lifonti is a very attractive man who looks to be Caucasian, he has an accent but I am not sure what kind. He claims to be Italian but a US citizen.

His family moved here when he was 12. He has 1 daughter who is 12 yrs old who goes to boarding school in Africa. Marino also claims to be a widow for 4 years.

3 weeks after we met he had to leave to an offshore rig near Amsterdam. It was supposed to be a 10 week contract and then he was going to retire and move to California with me. We talk on the phone almost daily, and we text all day every day- for 4 1/2 months now. He quickly declared his love for me.

About a month into the relationship he had problems with his drill on the oil rig and had to buy a new one because they couldn’t fix it. So he had "no one" who could help him but me. He is an only child and his father deceased.

He was relentless wanting me to help. After a couple of weeks I gave in and sent him money. I thought, well if he takes my money and never talks to me it is a small price to see if it is really true love. Well he kept talking to me and I felt we got closer afterwards.

This happens 2 more times. Once he needs help paying for custom fees the other his daughter needed her utilities to be paid through December. He couldn’t commit to his obligation to the school because he spent his life savings in his oil drill.

Each time I had to send the money to Nigeria or New York via western union or money gram.
I guess I was a fool in love with love. Watch out ladies, they are relentless! Don’t fall for the charm.

I have photos.

Turn the tables on them
by: Anonymous

Agreed. Too many widowers with children, working in the oil industry. I tell them I am totally committed to my spouse, and am taking food donation charity because we have no money. That usually cuts it off. One was persistent, and wanted to send money. I said "Send it to my lawyer, and send me a Western Union for $1500 to set up a trust fund, because I have no money."

End of conversation. Felt so good to turn the scam back on him.

Watch out for Philip Absalom in full military regalia,(says he is a Sergeant Major) Michael Phillip, Jason Hillary and Harry2933 - all with the same old patter - widowed or divorced, one child, oil rig/engineer employment, and wanting to engage via the social media because they see a future for our relationship!

I have had two supposed US generals complete with photos in full regalia - Mark Milly and John Willams - with the same tired spiel. Some of these guys manage to vanish without a trace in the finished games when I don't play ball and question their motives. This was also the case with Benscott700 who for a change had a cute puppy as the id photo but whose English was full of errors.

Wright Stillwood was a suited dude who disappeared suddenly and then there was someone Cartwright. I should really resign as soon as they pop up, but I can't resist finding out of they are widowed or divorced and working in the oil industry!

Hello Beautiful by Jennifer
by: Anonymous

Hi Jennifer. I too was contacted on Words With Friends. His name was Chris Anderson. Saw a picture of him on this site and guess what...his name is also Nyland Jonas. Definitely same guy. Anyway, after I figured him out I got out of the game for a while.

He and I did message on F/B but I have blocked him. He also started out with Hello Pretty (not beautiful). About a week after I stopped playing I went back on and he was gone. However, I started getting two to four requests a day from these guys. Same thing. Hello pretty. Hello. How are you Doing. Where are you From.

I finally figured out that it was impossible for that many random scammers to find me and realized that Chris Anderson was using my user name. So, last Friday I changed my user name and have not been bothered since!

What a great feeling to get on that game and play with my regulars. This started on August 17th and now has ended. He did have my work email (which I did block him) as well as my work cell phone. Also rejected his calls. However, he can still text. I have been ignoring the texts and have not had one since Wednesday morning.

He is a vile creature. Also, as we did chat, he asked me about how I earned a living. Get this, I am married and let him know right away I was and not interested in romance. He then wanted to be friends. Then two months into our friendship he asked me to be a beneficiary as he was on an oil rig and needed next of kin.

I REFUSED. And I also told him my husband was in law enforcement and was a detective that investigated internet fraud as well as identity theft. That still did not stop him. Maybe now he will leave me alone and hopefully got the hint.

These guys are determined. Be careful ladies. Even being married to a cop does not stop them.

I suspect this is another name to add to your list. Says he is a renowned Engineer working with oil rigs. Says he has only been playing Words with Friends for a short time, but racks up high weekly scores. Didn't get to the point of asking for money, or anything like that, but I became suspicious when I saw his high accumulated weekly points, the occasional grammar errors, and the fact that he still wanted to continue being "friends" when He found out I was 80 plus years old. :-)

I quit the game, but am wondering if there are other steps I should take to protect myself.

Add Another
by: Meredith

Add Harry Jackmann to the list. This clown even went so far as to have an Instagram. Claimed his wife died in childbirth, has a six year old son (who apparently has decided I'm his mother), works as petroleum engineer in Odessa, Texas but just won a one-month contract on a rig in Nigeria.

That's what clued me in, prompting me to look up scammers on WWF. He won a contract and then was able to up and leave his home with a six year old son in tow and move to Nigeria for a month within 24 hours. Yeah, no. No way.

While dealing with this guy, I got approached by another guy who's a widower and works for "the American airline" as a pilot. Asked similar questions. Started out with "hello beautiful." Almost immediately asked me to chat on Hangouts. I can't with this.

I just want to play some Scrabble!

Also, in one post, he told me he lost his wife and children in a car accident. I asked him if he lost his dog too. LOL I knew it was a scam immediately.

He asked me if I did online dating. I told him no, I did not, I was MARRIED and that would be cheating, and he said no it wouldn't. He had a fake FB page with no friends, no posts.

There were 2 pics of some short little guy, appeared it was taken in Cuba by the sign on the wall behind him. He asked how old I was. I answered that it wasn't polite to ask a lady that question.
