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.

Scammers
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

Wayne Anderson, Wayne Aderson
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Most scammers get a Google Voice phone number. I did have one scammer who actually called me from a Nigeria phone number. Scared the crap out of me.

As of today, I have not been bothered by scammers. I must be on there list to not play. That is fine with me. They are so time consuming.

James vs. Kurt Anderson
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

He will play it cool for several days then casually greet you. He is patient and his English is very very good. Once in a while he will slip up and you will detect some less than perfect English. We chatted for months as he fell in love with me and made plans for our future.

Hit me up to send me money to buy bitcoins with to pay his Endor in Malaysia. I said I wasn’t comfortable with that. He seemed ok with it and continued to ‘love me’ for another day.

Then was gone

James Wright and others
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yes they have many email addresses and many different names. I tried it and opened several different email addresses and new profiles through my iPad. To be honest it drove me mad. Just didn’t have the time to deal with it.

But if you want to catch your scammer try and find the people who he or she plays with. It’s quite interesting the results you get.

Timothy Huddle
by: Anonymous

So...Here’s my story.

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

Oil rig, deceased wife, one son etc etc.

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

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

Please listen to the still small voice that tells you to beware.

Starts out by playing WWF. Says hi, asks where you're from. Says he lives in Columbus, Ohio, widower of 3 yrs. Wife died in plane crash. Has young boy and girl. Supposedly, originally from Bytom, Poland. Has accent. After awhile, requests several times to go on whassap, to chat and share pictures.

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

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

Beware! Dont fall for his trap. Thank goodness I came to my senses. David Mark, and all you other scumbags, rot in Hell

RE: Do women scam men on WWF?

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

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

Do you think that is safe? Obviously I will not be sending her any money, cards, etc but that hasn't come up yet.

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

Nigerian scammers
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

Decline & Block
by: Anonymous

Since a man tried to scam me last summer I have had many requests to play by scammers. If they have two first or two last names they are probably scammers. I decline to play & then check their profile. 100% of the time they have recently created their profile.

I do not play along with them. This only encourages them. My recommendation, if anything seems off, DECLINE to play, check their PROFILE & BLOCK them.

So I have been chatting with Peter Donovan & Thomas Jeff. Recently Peter asks for my mailing address. Really? So I ask for his. He gives it to me. It was a house for sale in California.

Then today Thomas Jeff asks for my mailing address. Says he has my cell number but needs my mailing address to mail me something.

Why do they want a mailing address?? Seriously, I have chatted with over 15 scammers & these two birds wanted a mailing address.

It just seems strange. They are both blocked now.

Is Paul W "Paul Wyatt"?
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Though on the surface it still looks, well, inconclusive. Am now wondering if after having no luck after fishing for weeks with the 'handsome man' bait, they're now trying the 'same sex' option. I am so so so not interested either way, but wondering if I'm now being paranoid about trusting anyone anyone.

Has anyone else has experienced this?

I am chatting with a John Walker who actually sent me pics of an Argentina actor by the name of Juan Soler. I'm playing his own game with him which is kind of comical. He professes to be an Independent Contractor for Shell Oil Company and that he is working in the Gulf of Offshores Mexico in Alabama. His wife cheated with his best friend and left him and his 15 year old daughter and took his millions of dollars. The daughter, Melissa, is in boarding school. He says dad was from the Nederland's and his mom from Canada but dad and sister died in a car crash a long time ago and mom died of cancer.

Today he said his phone fell and is crushed so he is having a hard time using it. Needs me to send him $100 Amazing card. Yeah right! I don't think so Scammer!! I'll come up with an excuse why I can't. I'd like to know where he is actually from. I haven't spoken to him on the phone yet, but he refuses video chat. Wonder why??

I'll ride it out for a while and then, boom. I'll hit him with what I know about him. Bye bye scammer!

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

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

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

Beware! Enjoy the romance but do not send money or reveal personal information that could be used to steal your identity.

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

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

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

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

Please advise I think It’s a WWF scam 😡

Has anyone played with Dave Morgan? At first he seemed genuine, became very affectionate after about 3 weeks, sending poems, calling me babee, and I’m wondering what this guy is up to.

Finally it came, the request for an iTunes card, followed many weeks later by a broken machine that he needed over $3,000.00 to fix. I requested my sister start a game with him to see what kind of story he told her. Quite a difference. He told me widowed 7 years, one son, 18, from Texas. He told my sister he’s divorced with 15 year old son, lives in Chicago and is going out to sea in January.

I sent no money or iTunes card and called him out for the scammer he is.

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

Some names-

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

Smith Robinson.

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

I've played with them all and most wanted iTunes, money. I'm still playing with some as they haven't actually requested money yet. I could have been remarried about 3 dozen times!!! The grammar and spelling are horrible, first one was a year ago November and he was a Brigadier General in the US Air Force! It went on for a long time. My daughter actually found the real man on Pinterest. I confronted the fraud and he fessed up eventually. He was 22 years old in Nigeria! Disturbed young man!

Follow up on to two prior posts
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ladies- These men looking to befriend you are all scams. My mother-in-law has fallen prey to them & we are trying to show her the truth. After posting a photo on wwf I was quickly approached by several. They of course are all widowed, working somewhere overseas and are looking for love.

I went to Hangouts which they immediately want you to do (don’t use your real email address). Was able to reverse image search the scammer. Found he was using someone’s photos from social media. Hoping to show my mother-in-law what I found and convince her that her love is a scam

Good Bye Romance Scammers

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

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

Good riddance....Romance Scammers. Block right away. I am done!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am being scammed ..... no way

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

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

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

Please be careful

When I first started playing words with friends I was naive and had no idea about scammers.
Peterson Franklyn Johnson was my first, and foolishly I gave him my email address, then went to google hangouts.

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

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

I never replied and I felt crap. So my warning to you all is don’t give them any chance to get back into your life.

Byram Pascal
by: Wise2criminals

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This guy as someone has already said comes across very real. From Italy now lives in Brooklyn deals in high class cars, has a 12 yr old Daughter, gives away lots of money to orphans without batting an eyelid. As if it's nothing. He is looking for A lady to spend the rest of his life with. He is more interested in what apps you use and email! I also think he is a scammer and using a false photograph. The real person in the photo could be Grant Cardone? The hoodie gives it away..."who's got my money " ?

Spotting a scammer
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

He belongs to a group of young guys out of Ghana. I actually played his game and hacked his phone and sent him a picture of himself and all the guys he is working with. They have me on a list no scammer will accept my games or play a game with me. I have reported them to authorities. They were so freaked out by me finding their information. I also got in contact with their government since I had real information. They had no idea who they were dealing with. A d.c. number should have made them think twice but they are stupid.

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

Do Scammers Work Alone?
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

Romance Scammers - Accent on Voice
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

Does the voicemail from your scammer have an accent? My scammer, Greg Anderson has one. His ph#s are 209-732-4033, 916-794-1550. I think he has been blocked. He text me & said he would give me my money back, but he needed my help. (which means he needs money to do it).

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

It was being monitored. I hope by the FBI. If it was WWFs I hope they report it to the FBI. His WWFs username if Greg001243.

I have played WWF with no issues for a couple of years. Last week that changed. I noticed an influx of games requests for men. I accepted them as was not aware of the scammers. The English used was disjointed even though one claimed to live in UK. I had 6 games on the go, all chatting.

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

I have blocked them all and my new strategy is to ask them if they are rich as I am widowed with three children to house and clothe. They run a mile!

Response to ITUNES cards
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

There are plenty of websites that provide in depth insights to romance scammers.

They can’t control your pc from an email address. That is ridiculous. I work for a computer support company so i know that is just not possible. We should be careful not to get too wrapped up in this.

We should not give anyone personal financial info as that’s common sense. They get gift cards and sell them for less than they are worth just to get cash to survive in some cases. Let’s all beware but let’s not get carried away!

He asked very similar questions like what do I do when I’m angry and how do I calm myself down etc. We texted for many months.

He then went to work in New Orleans and the last text I got from him was regarding his sending me money to buy bitcoins for him to Pay his supplier in Malaysia. I refused, and he graciously excepted that. I heard from him one more time after that and then never again. I did speak with him on the phone once, he was definitely a scammer as I could hardly understand his English.

Itune Cards

The scammers re-sell Itune cards at a discount & use the money they make to keep scamming. I read where some sales from Itune cards go to terrorist networks. Please do not send anyone you have never met any money or Itune cards, Steam Wallet, or any other item they can re-sell. It just keeps the romance scammers going.

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

They will use you as mules for illegal financial transactions & have been known to use victims to transport illegal drugs.

Death threats are real as a way to get money from their victims. Just be careful...this is a real job for these scammers.

David Williams

So I guess I am new to this scam. Fortunately I am suspicious anyway, so started researching and stumbled on this site.

My suspicion - David Williams aka David williams2. Apparently only after a few chats I am the love of his life and as soon as he ends the job in UK, he is coming straight to me, even though he does not know me and allegedly has a daughter he has custody of in Michigan. His wife left him 6 years ago for someone else and abandoned him and his daughter. During these chats, I am thinking how do you love someone so much that you just met? His response was "love doesn't know a time it is in the heart..."

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

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

Any responses would be appreciated.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why do they scam
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

FYI the photo these scammers are using is not the real person pulling the scam off. Not only are we victims of the scam but the person in the photo that is being used is a victim. May karma come back on these creeps 10 fold.

I fell victim with my heart only. When asked for Itune cards & banking account numbers I knew something was wrong. I blocked them. They found me again as they have ways. I Even had a death threat. I Closed my WWFs account I had since 2010. This is a scary situation. Would love to find the real person behind the scammer.

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

I have noticed different scammers using the same photo with a different name. Not sure it is the same impersonator, tho. So far, I have not had any scammers using the same word style. I did have 2 scammers whom I believe were working together. They used a secret code word I had given to one of them, which I thought was odd.

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

I would love to see the real face behind the scammer.

by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Luke HARLEY
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

by: Hilary

Hello, ladies & gents it would appear the scammers have changed tactics as I’ve had quite a few who’ve not displayed a profile picture so you can’t check on Reversee or TinEye. However it becomes clear they’re fake as soon as the chat starts. In response to Hilarious by Anonymous ive had them ask my name & my name is clearly displayed on my profile so just for a laugh i told one my name was Freda & another it was Sophie & they never noticed next time I’m going to say it’s Norman & see if the thick twits notice

Dave Williams
by: Anonymous

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

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

Who ever the person/persons were disappeared after I told them I never give my name out as I don’t know whom I’m talking to, but how interesting their job sounds "emailing between rigs" and could they tell me a bit more as it sounds fascinating.

Sadly they Disapeared off the radar. Shame it was just starting to get interesting, It seemed like an interesting extension to the game.

New way to Scam on WWFs
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Does that mean he blocked me?

I must get at least 3-5 everyday. If I see they are new and have a very low score I decline the game. The few I have played with used the same line as the others. Widowed, child at boarding school, very lonely and wanting to meet someone.

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

I have been getting tons of requests with the same story as everyone else. I accepted another game and we started chatting and he gave the same song and dance but I played dumb and told him to be careful since there is a lot of scammers on WWF2.

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

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

Peter Bruster Scammer on WWF and Hangouts
by: Stephanie

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

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

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

This is the FB link with his pic:

Some of these posts make me sad
by: CJ

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Never let your guard down
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Any advice is appreciated.

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

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

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

Said I trained dogs, part time. No comment. Was asked 2/3 times did I chat on hangouts etc. Was an International Engineer on oil rig- off Norway. Mom was a Dane.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

John Church - Lifaisy7
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

Beware of John Church profile name is lifaisy7

My scammer was Morrisonjackson46. I fell for the guy. He told me I was all he had in his life. Just me and his son.

Morrison Jackson checks in on you all the time and does show you attention. But he is a scammer and he broke my heart. Oh, yes, he also plays a really good game of WWFs. He brags that he never gets beat. Except for that one GAL who beat him and he had no idea where the last word came from that beat him...so funny!

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

The Rupert Graham I chatted with was an orthopedic surgeon in Afghanastan. He is a really good WWFs player. He goes very slow on the scamming process. He wanted to chat on Hangouts. I ended up shutting my WWFs down & blocking my hangout account before he could ask for money.

At the time, he didn't have Owens on his name but he had a photo of an elk for his profile photo.

Hope this helps. Oh yes, he half forgot he told me he was an orthopedic surgeon as well.

David Gray is also definitely a scammer - his profile picture is a bunch of white flowers and he uses the same exact paragraphs and questions as lots of them - they must have some wwf scammer manual. Same. Exact. Words. so funny! He just got to the part where he asked for a $50 amazon gift card to renew his internet.

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.

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.

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, 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.

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.

REX HUDSON WWF scammer stole photos from florist

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

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Wish we could see their real face!

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!

Also they may not ask for $$ but they are gathering information to steal your IDENTITY! Don't let emotions cloud your judgement. IJS.

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.

I played along for awhile. Had 6 on hangouts. I ended up getting a "death threat". Scared me. I shut my WWFs account down.

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!

These scammers are serious. This is their job! They are professionals.

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.

Romance Scammers
by: Anonymous

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.

Scammers by the dozens and even more than that

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.

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!!!

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).

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.

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.

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!

My latest scammer is going by the name of Paedar Cormac. Using the photo of Luicianno Stranghetti. and trying to get you to invest in Bitcoin.

So here's how to get started. You'd visit coinbase.com on your device and then you'd create an account. There will be some verification processes. When you've passed them, you can then buy Bitcoin worth £5000 that's a copy of his texts.

Obviously your investing in his pocket.

This guy is unreal. Said he was a civil engineer who just flew to Florida from Sparks, NV. to interview for a contract to build roads and bridges in Puebla, Mexico. He told me he lost his wife and two children in a car accident 3 years ago and has since poured himself into work. 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.

Then found him on Facebook and Instagram so watch out ladies as he is awful. The pictures he sends are of a very handsome man.

Romance Scammers on WWFs
by: Anonymous

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.

I literally closed my account out.

Richard Luke & Davis Michael Miller: same scammer?
by: Anonymous

Richard Luke sounds remarkably like Davis Michael Miller - very similar scenario: wife died in childbirth 8 year old daughter, born in Norway. Got a contract on oil rig 600,000 miles off the Gulf of Mexico and wanted to come to England to marry me. Asked me to find a beautiful house for me, him, his daughter and his mother.

Why would I want an 8 year old when I’m 65? Why would I want to live with his mother & why oh why would I be so naive as to want to marry a man I had known for 5 days and had never even spoken to?!?!?

All I wanted was to play Words. I have changed my settings and blocked him plus reported him, not that the latter does a single bit of good it seems to me!

I came across a scammer over the past 2 weeks. His name is Andrew Jefferson and he said he was German and lived in Alabama, then Orlando, oh now Miami. Owns a construction company and sells antiques. He is a charmer, but his accent does not sound German.

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. Send it to Walmart to Walmart/ a friend will pick it up for her. Got very angry when I called him out on it.

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!!

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

Romance Scammers on WWFs

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 Philipas, Independent Oil Contractor, Alaska
by: Anonymous

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.

It would be so nice just to be able to relax and play without having to keep my guard up!

Romance Scammers on WWFs

Question to all:

Do you think the romance scammers on WWFs are all one network? Or do you think there are several scamming networks working WWFs.

There are those posing as military men. There are oil rig men. There are independent contractors. What are your thoughts?

There are just way too many of them. Hard to stay on top of all of these scammers.

I think it would nice if you see someone playing a game with a person you know is a scammer and then you send them a game request and then warn them.

These scammers can be so convincing. They make you think they really love you. Well in a sense they do love you for a month or two, until they steal your heart, get your identity, steal your money, and then leave you dead cold broke. They are heartless but make you think you are the heartless one.

These jerks need stopping. Just a note, they will break every rule in the book to break your heart. Maybe we should romance the scammer ourselves??? LOL

Scammer magnet?
by: Anonymous

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

Don’t listen to any sweet talk! I think they are all out to get your money eventually! I have only had one that requested $700 to get help for his very sick son. He was on an oil rig 400 miles from land.

So I blocked him and also reported him. I am 79 and there is no way someone in their 50’s or 60’s would be interested in me! Also, their pics are very similar and I am sure they just change their name.

Don’t give out your cell number or Facebook or anything to anyone!

No, I have never experienced one sending photos of passports and such. After a month of online all of mine demand money and I usually block them. However, I did have one that created a profile for his daughter who requested a WWFs game. That was creepy...he also sent me e-mails and would not stop texting my phone so I had to decommission my gmail account as well as get a new phone number.

Always get a google voice number. These numbers cannot be traced as easy as your own cell phone. Hope this helps as these guys are smart.

Then he takes photos of passports, drivers license, contract of where he works, etc. All this to prove he loves me and we will build a life together. 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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Username not showing up on friend list
by: Anonymous

I’ve beem playing a guy for a few months. He asked me to play originally. His username has never showed up on my friend list. So today I created a new account and searched for his username to start a game and it said the user hasn’t played in over 2 weeks. And I’m playing him currently.

He has a Zyngawf username.

Is this a scam?

Cho, aka ricegirl123

My husband has fallen head over heels with this chick and is leaving me to meet her in Bali. He is sending her money and he has even lied the amount of money he makes etc. He is not the best on Earth and she presents herself as a 10.

What should I do?

He is also cat fishing and trying to get younger women. Should I let the two scammers scam each other. She is ricegirl123 or Cho

Favorite Colors - 2 guys said this
by: Anonymous

Donald Luke and Grey Nelson - both asked my favorite color and then gave the following info.

My favorite colors are both white and red, because the white stands for a pure heart and the red stands for love, so when you add the both of them together you have a pure hearted love, that is me because I do have a pure heart for love.

Malcolm Norton
by: Anonymous

Watch out for Malcolm Norton, but he has probably changed his name and picture since I busted him.
His story is an independent contractor (oil driller) working in Alaska, wife died in childbirth (or as he said Passed out). He has a 12 yr old son in boarding school.

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.
I did have the pleasure of telling him how evil he is and that he is dumb and needs to go back to scamming school.

I am sure he will resurface.

Well today he pulled out the big guns. After being turned down for the last few months (google cards, money to buy an electric vest for diving into the sea off the rig to fix something, an iPhone for his daughter, shipping money to get his vest sent to him etc), he sent me an email saying that he resigned from his job on the rig but the employer won’t pay for his plane ticket out of there.

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!!

I believe this is his last ditch effort to get something out of me.

Beware, he’s a real sweetie, kind, loving etc. but gets nasty when he doesn’t get his way.

Words with Friends 2 / Scammers
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 !!

Hi, My guy right now is using the name Scott Donald. He's from Australia, and is getting ready to retire. Guess what? He works on an oil rig. LOL I have met so many men on WWF that work on oil rigs. Most are divorced, with a child. Or they lost their wife in a car crash and left them with a lovely daughter. Tell them you are sorry for their loss. They don't say thank you

Let's see, there's been a surgeon. He's a well known scammer. There's a page about him on FB. So beware of Morrison Patrick. He said he was in the US Armed Services. He used certain spelling only people use in the UK.

WWF TROLLS- Adendum to my previous Post of TROLLS
by: Anonymous

Addendum to my last post. They start out with Hello or Hi or How are you? What are you doing? Where are you originally from? They usually do not use capital letters on their names and they will ask you for your ph. #- and if you do not give it, they will give you theirs. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maxi was a real pro. He groomed me for four months. I did give out an email address and received numerous nice photos of his life and daughter. Luckily no money sent.

Beware this guy whoever he is is good and convincing

His user name is Belljully12.

I finally had a guy actually ask me to send money for a machine that he needs to fix a valve that's not working correctly on a rig. lmao! $3,000!!! I told him the sad thing is that people actually fall for this !@#$, and I called him a scammer and he quit messaging me.

In his profile pic he's wearing a red tie, glasses, standing up holding a glass of wine - nice looking guy. I wonder whose picture he stole.

Well the curse that Paul Mark Hawkins put on me didn't work!!!!!!

I chased him until he finally answered the phone and told me to leave him alone because he needed peace. Says he is an African priest and he is on his Africian soil. Put another curse on me. I told him he needed to go back to curse school because he is a failure.

For a white man fron Hungary he became a black man from Africa. Admitted that he is a scammer and a thief, but wants peace in his life. He should have thought of that when he was lying and begging.

Troy George, lives in Indiana but originally from Turkey, or so the story goes. Independent contractor. Very good looking and fun to chat with. After texting with him off Words With Friends, he was so in love with me, but always needing confirmation that I would never let him down no matter what. Guess what?

Yep, within 3 weeks he was in big trouble and in jeopardy of losing his contract if he didn't come up with $10,000.

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.

Watch out for Jason Hillary
by: Anonymous

Yup, another oil rig worker. Middle aged white man with a daughter in Maine. I always wondered why his English lacked clarity.

After talking to my Cousin who plays on WWF with me and telling her about this very curious guy, she led me to this website.

It took him 30 days to ask for money. Gave the weirdest excuse that he broke one of the drills on the rig and needed $5K to replace it.

Who would work for a rig that makes you replace equipment? He thought I'd fall for that.


I blocked him immediately!

Two Scammers
by: FM

Beware of David Gibson and Happy lovely Flower on Words with friends. Both are contractors with oil companies. Both joined WWF April 2018 Both are photos of men with a similar look, white T-shirt’s, nice looking. Style of communication is similar greetings and comments. 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.

Also stating he is a MD working with the military in Afghanistan. Says he is widowed with a 14 year old son. His grammar and sentence structure is very odd and very quick to be amorous and affectionate. Got tipped off when he automatically wanted a relationship after only a couple of texts through WWF game.

I only wanted to play the game and normally don’t have conversations with those I play with. Very creepy. I immediately blocked him.

Beware!!!

After he didn't get ITunes cards and money to buy "life jackets" for work on oil rigs where he was an independent mechanical engineer he got UGLY. Admitted he was a thief and beggar, then he said he would like to kill me and bury me. Said he is an African priest and he put a curse on me to die in 3 days. Raved and ranted like a wild person!

Don't give him any money or personal information.

George Andrew or Andrew George was an oil rigger. He had a daughter in boarding school, whose birthday was 6/5/2018. He had requested WWF2 game at the end of May. He fell in love with me because his wife died in a car accident. He asked me to help him buy his daughter, Carin, a birthday present. I said no.

I said I was married and he did not care. I said I was going shopping and he asked what I was buying him, but he kept asking for an iTunes card. I said that is for kids. 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.

BEWARE, they get mean when you do not give your hard earned money to them.

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.

HE WENT UGLY. And so did I. I Told him he didn't tell me what to do and I didn't owe him anything.

I've been talking to him all of 3 days before he asked me to buy him an ITunes card because his credit card doesn't work in Scotland on the Oil Rig. 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.

I am married so it was not flirty at all just friendly. He seemed like the nicest guy. Military was his story and he has done a little research. But when he asked to use my accounts to wire money I quickly realized this was a guy trying to scam me. We played WWF and talked about our families for months before anything seemed weird. I say that to say this, watch out for the long con ladies.

Words with friends2 scammer

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

Name was Andrew Roun something or other. A photo that looks like an older benevolent professor.

So sad that scammers have taken to WWFs - is nothing sacred?? I am averaging 2-3 of these losers a week. I immediately call them out and then it's like crickets...no response!!

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!!

Zenga needs to do something about this.

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.

So ugly

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.

DELETE AND BLOCK.

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.

As the conversation always begins he is widower, works on an oil rig, has a 20 year old daughter and he needs me to buy him a ITunes card for 100.00 so he can talk to his daughter as he is unable to get an ITunes card being out on the oil rig.

I am sure he is the person in the picture as he always wants to video chat and he's already crushing on a married woman even though we have only chatted a few times, just wanted the ladies to beware.
