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.

Whoosh

Karl is gone! I didn’t even send my proof, he must have been prolific. Playing Stefanholland70 his profile said Wisconsin. I said hello cheesehead. He replied he was really from Minnesota but didn’t want anyone knowing his business.

I fished that I totally agree. It is very strange how people on here want to know your whole life story in the first 10 minutes and what a pleasure it was playing someone who didn’t want to know anything about me, just enjoy the game. He is now flustered. Cannot ask me anything.....

Yandex images
by: Anonymous

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

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

I hope you weren’t scammed bad.

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

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

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

Same old
by: Maptokyo

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

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

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

Have fun and report him please.

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

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

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

He disappeared too. They are such vile scum.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Grey Aisley

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

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

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

LOL what a Joke.

He has chosen such a good looking guy to steal a photo from, that I could barely contain myself.
Says he is a Sergeant, but can barely string a coherent comment together in English, plus he has facial hair. He says he is allowed that in the Military.

Clark-What do you mean how do I work in a White House... who are you.

Clark-Oh now I understand you better.... I drive down to Washington DC every Monday then come back to my son every Friday.. is that a problem mrs.
Oh I support President Trump
Anyway I work as Personal Aide to the President
. I represents the president by welcoming visitors, reviewing correspondence; arranging company dinners and other corporate functions; answering questions and meeting requests directed to the president.

It doesn’t get better than this. What a piece of crap. I dare someone to come up with a funnier conversation. He’s not a widower nor on an oil rig. Just a guy in Glendale, CA that works in the White House. For the president no less and he has time for WWF😂😂

I noticed my scammers disappear on weekends & really go to town on Tues, Wed &Thurs. I think it is because they work Mon thru Thurs & go home to their real families for the weekend. Just my opinion. They will tell you they had a crisis at work or their internet wasn’t working but I think it is because they work during work week only & take a break on the weekends.

Re: Learning the hard way

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

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

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

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

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

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

They should hire us on!!

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

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

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

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

Best one, Stave Lee has been reincarnated. This guy has two completely different pics. An older man topless. Not good bait.. and a middle younger guy with a beard in a plaid shirt. Name, John Billy 892 profile says from Canada. He introduces himself as Wilson. I ask him which pic he is. Old shirtless guy. I ask him who John Billy is. No reply.

I ask where in Canada. He says, wait for it. Kentucky. I gave him a chance but he held firm he was from Kentucky Canada. Immediately into the hangouts/email demand. Next vacation will be Kentucky Canada. Night ladies!

Got one screenshot which I will be sending to Zynga. This guy uses a neat trick of accusing whomever he is chatting to of being 'false' then saying they will report your profile unless you prove you are 'real' by going on Hangout/Whatsapp/Instagram.

I am challenging a few of players mentioned here just so I can report them.

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

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

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

Gotta love Terry G, (Terrygabriel112). Picture is a handsome man, pink shirt and a stethoscope around his neck. He found me after a lightning round- what a surprise. I accepted a game and asked him what kind of Dr we was. His reply was ??? As if he did not understand the question.

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

Yeah, right-Lol. But the best part is he plays only 2 letter words. Pretty smart Dr.😂😂. How does he have a badge of 17 and he only won 109 games? You will notice that most guys that tag you after lightning round are brand new- check their playing since date. Terry has been around since sep 2019 so that’s unusual.

These men all started games with me after playing the lightening round, very personal questions, non original story either on their last contract retiring soon or on a peace keeping mission. It doesn't take long for them to mess themselves up in their lies.

One of them tried to tell me he was a captain of the USS Virginia and then sends pics of a cruise ship with old people on it. It's really tiresome if you want to play a game. I have only recently started playing with others and so far have found only one human being who are what they say they are.

And there’s more
by: Jan

Sigh. These men are really a pain in the proverbial. So many playing lightning round, at the end look at Your team, then Their team guaranteed at the bottom there are men with either no score or a very low score.

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

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

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

A step further
by: Maptokyo

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Conversation came around to what I thought about WWF and I said "lots of scammers". He asked how I could tell. So I said, mostly they do not have a very good grasp of English and their grammar isn’t either. They evade questions.

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

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

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

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

Playing them at their own game

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

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

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

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

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

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

LarryAntonio2020
by: LRF

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

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

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

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

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

Stavelee

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

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

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

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

WWF experience
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

After playing for a month in lockdown I accepted a game with a so called General in Afghanistan who then started to chat.Very friendly..nothing too personal but then asked for my e mail which I obviously did not give him. He asked if I was on a dating site he could chat to me on and again I said No!

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

Uptick etc
by: Maptokyo

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

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

Married ladies they try to lure you into a chat room, they copy chats, pics anything they can use against you, ask you to accept their Facebook request and within seconds they are copied and sent friend request to anyone tagged In your pics including husband, and on your friends list, so this is how they blackmail you.

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

Here's a new one i haven't seen yet. A brother/sister team. They are probably both the same guy. The sister starts up the conversation first - asked me if i'm "safe from the men on wwf". Then goes on to say how she only chats with her brother who is a good, God fearing man; lost his wife before the pandemic.

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

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

Oh - when i wouldn't play along with them they did the disappearing act.

Admitting they're scammers
by: Jan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scott Moore

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

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

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

Email ScottStefano74@gmail.com

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

Adamsraw7
by: Anonymous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What a painful learning experience.

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

Is this happening more now?

What might cause an uptick in the WWF scammer activity?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He asked if I were single, I said no, I'm engaged to which he said he was jealous that he had no-one and hopes he's invited to my wedding. Then he said how his life is so lonely etc etc, it got too creepy so I blocked him.

A few days later, I got a message from a user named Stephen Townsend and his pic was one of the actual Stephen Townsend off Google in his uniform. He said "Happy Sunday!!!

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

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

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

Scammer Playbook
by: Anonymous

Scammers hit dating websites or social media groups targeting widowers or divorcees. And they use profiles often stolen from someone in the military, which serves as the cover of why they can’t meet their victim in person.

They look for someone (a man) who is attractive, just type #Marines, looking at photos of Marines. Go through their profile and see all the photos of them, getting complete details."

They then cast a wide net sometimes communicating with hundreds of people at a time.

Social Catfish also got hold of an actual script the scammers share with one another, on what to say to reel in victims.

It’s everything from how to flirt: "I like you a lot and I don't even know you yet. I just have an idea."

To winning them over by appearing sensitive: "I do not go out often that much ever since I lost my late wife. The few times that I go out, must be with my kids."

Once they're on the hook, comes the money grab, where they tell the victim, "I can't leave the country. The Government just held me. I need some money, and when I'm back, I'm going to pay you back."

And boy are they good. 21,000 people were conned last year.

"We go into this believing these people are real people. True, honest people, they have zero remorse about what they're doing.

Some make hundreds of thousands of dollars at this con, which makes them millionaires in their country.

The person who is scamming you is not the ones who gets the money or anything else. That goes to the higher ups.

Here's how to block, for the lady who asked. Go into your profile settings, scroll down to Manage Block List. Then Find User, and you should be able to find their user name and then you can block.

Sometimes I found I cant find the user name so it isn't foolproof and in any event these losers change their names with monotonous regularity. A telling sign is how low their scores are and how long they've been playing. But that isn't 100% the case I'm afraid, some of them do play a good game and also a long one in that they bide their time before they ask for more personal details etc etc.

This guy could be going under any other name but he seems to keep using the same pic. A good looking guy around 60, arm out his car and smiling. He is a long term scammer and eventually asks for money due to a machine breakdown. I saw that mentioned by someone else on this site.

The problem with reporting them is the site does not appear to deal with long term scammers. They want the day the offence happened, what game, time of day etc. Long time scammers do not work like that and there is lots of evidence on here of that happening.

He wanted me to get money to help him. When I said I could not or would not then he got rude. I said I knew he was a scammer which he then tried to make into a trust issue on my part.

Whoever he is, stay away from the guy hanging out his driver window.

Sunny Michael and Steve Bruce
by: Anonymous

Right pair. Both pestered me until I went to hangouts and they told me how beautiful I was and tried to get money. Sunny Michael pretended his wife died in a car crash and said he worked on an oil rig in the gulf. He then asked me to lend him 15 thousand dollars.

Steve Bruce claimed to be a general working in the US army keeping the peace in Syria then spun a story about having 2 million dollars in diamonds but needed money to release them.

I have really learned my lesson. Ladies be careful they are all lies. I will never accept a game again from someone I don’t know.

Adam E
by: Anonymous

Just an FYI, scammers chatting with married women collect data on the married woman’s family so they can eventually blackmail the woman. It starts out as just friends, but they will try to get you to go to another site to chat.

They then turn it into a sexual content, wanting naked photos, sexual content messages, & then they threaten to release everything to your husband.

Please just be very careful.

Adam E.
by: Anonymous

He sometimes goes by the name Adam Elhorn or Adam Johnson. His photo looks like it was taken in the 90s. He’s wearing a cap and has a goatee. He says he’s from Sweden and now lives in Texas. He claims to have a 14-year-old son named Adrian. He said that he lost his wife years ago and then a week later said that his wife left him for his best friend. It could mean the same thing or he could’ve changed his story.

He’s very good at words. Both in the game and in text conversation. He gave me compliments and asked a lot of questions about my family. I told him that I was happily married and he just kept saying that he could use a friend. At one point he asked if we could be best friends. I assumed that he was lonely and just needed someone to talk to.

On several occasions he called me babe and I reminded him that we were just friends. He said he hadn’t worked in four years and got excited that he had a contract in the Middle East coming up. He asked if I would get a Google account and sign up for WhatsApp so that we could talk when he was away.

I told him that I wasn’t comfortable with that and we continue to talk to him while we played words and could continue talking when he came back from his job. Something was off about him. He didn’t understand why I wouldn’t chat with him outside of words.

He never asked for money or favors. He only asked for friendship. I didn’t realize that I was talking to a scammer until I started a search on my own and realized that he was cat fishing me. I believe after reading so much online that he is a Nigerian scammer.

He was very interested in me and asked a lot of questions about where I worked, where my husband worked, what my hobbies are, how many children I have etc. He wanted to talk to me on the phone before he flew on his private jet. He told me that I didn’t care about him when I declined.

He wanted my email as well to write but again, I already knew that I wasn’t talking to the man in the picture. The chatting only lasted a few weeks. My husband and my kids knew all about my lonely friend. I miss the thought of talking to Adam Johnson but hate the idea that a stranger was using me while pretending to be somebody else.

He was the kind of man that a woman could fall in love with. He texted first thing in the morning, checked in during the day and made sure he said goodnight before going to bed. I’m already in love with my husband and my family so for me it was innocent chat. I’m afraid that he will scam other innocent, kind women that are enjoying his attention.

Ladies beware.

So many
by: Anonymous

I started getting overwhelmed with scammers in the summer. By November I had so many I changed my profile from my Facebook account to my gmail and have had none! I met a nice guy who has been my go to guy since December. We are both married but enjoy each others company both on words and hangouts.

I believe the scammers tell each other who we are especially if they couldn't get $ from us. Saves them all a little time I guess.

Play Along!
by: Anonymous

Ladies - there are TONS of scammers on this game, and there really is no use throwing names out there, because they just delete and change constantly. Once I finally caught on after a couple, they became crazy easy to spot, just by photo - relatively decent looking middle aged men (though sometimes they choose not so good looking ones lol) usually posed alone or sometimes with children.

I've noticed that they often find you through the Lightening Round game, if you play that. I love playing it and picking them out! Their profiles always say they joined recently within the past year or so. When they contact me, I love to string them along, which is easy because they don't know a thing about U.S. pop culture.

I've been Scarlett O'Hara, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, and others. Recently I've been answering their questions with song lyrics! And of course I never give them any info, but I'm never rude to them (after all, I don't want to be the one kicked off the game!)

After a while, they realize it's fruitless and they'll completely disappear. So my point is, there will always be scammers on there, so you might as well have some fun of your own and waste their time! Try it - pretty satisfying.

Fake Roger Whiteman
by: Anonymous

Just beware of someone calling himself Roger Whiteman (62). Contract engineer on an oil rig, 200km off a Vancouver. Claiming to be Italian/US, US citizen from SAN Fran. Widower with 20 year old daughter.

Caught on when my family noticed a doctored photo. English not very good. I had fallen, hook, line and sinker. He didn’t (not yet anyway), ask for money. Said he was retiring after his present contract finished in three weeks. After the CV lockdown, he was going to visit me in Australia.
I woke up and deleted Hangouts.

Just in time I think. Very romantic chatter, but just the same as everything else I’ve read. How these creeps could treat a 70 year old widow, is beyond me.

To the lady who has been sadly sucked in by this bloke who is obviously a scammer. Well done to keep checking him out - what worries me is that you've kept going with him. I know you want to believe in his 'live' for you - after all it makes you feel good.

Rest assured this feeling is momentary. He wants to get money out of you, plain and simple. Eventually if you dont he will no doubt get angry and try to make you feel guilty. Do yourself a big - no HUGE - favour and get out now.

I can't stress this enough some of these scammers are very clever - but you have already caught him out which proves you are more intelligent than he is!!!!

Btw is his name a spelling mistake on your part or is that how he spells it? Louise with an e on the end is a girls name - I would expect a Spanish version to be Luis. (there is a famous footballer of this name!)

Please please get out of this so-called 'relationship '. It is toxic.

All of the scammers seem to like getting you on Hangouts. Someone told me it's because security is not good on this.

Block this guy - take him out of your life. Sorry but the truth hurts. He's a typical scamming LIAR!!!

Louise Hernadez - please help about him
by: Anonymous

I met a man on Words with Friends and we immediately liked each other. We switched to texting and he even called me. His name is Louise Hernadez. I was going through a divorce and was receiving a settlement to leave my house. I felt comfortable enough to tell Louise this. First flag: he was turning 56 on Jan 1, 2020 and he had 5 year old twins. A boy and girl. He sent me pics and I asked how tall he was. He said 5’8" but the man in the pic was clearly taller. But ok moving on. He said he was going on an interview for two weeks in Texas for a contact, which he was won.

$3million from KCA Deutag. He left for the rig the next day. That was in January. He sent me a small gift (no message or gift receipt) for Valentine’s Day. He even had his "sister" email me a video of herself. She even said in the email that her brother has never been happier and that he loves me and that he instructed her to get me a car! She even provided me with a "tracking number" (never received the car).

I had tried to contact the shipper and got an error message. It was supposedly insured and when I contacted the insurance company they never had a policy for that car. Fast forward to today. Never heard from the sister again after trying to reach out to her. Louise, meanwhile creates an Instagram account so we can message. I was still at home and it was not good to text. He always said I should get Google Hangouts.

I couldn’t at the time so he messaged on Instagram. He then said that a part on the rig broke and because he owns the contract, he had to fix it but didn’t have the access to funds.

Another flag. I did some digging and checked his pics on Socialcatfish.com. Turns out he stole the pics from a wealthy businessman based out of LV with, you guessed it, twins. I confronted Louise and he apologized and said he hasn’t been able to take pics because of security on the rig. I told him to use a bathroom to take a selfie. He says he couldn’t! Then he says he’s been on the rig since day one.

I have since moved into an apartment and have downloaded Google Hangouts. He had called me several times from there. He has a very thick Spanish accent (his father is from Spain and his mother was American). He supposedly lives in NY, had given me his SSN and screenshots of his bank account. The address he gave me in NY is a legit one but not sure it’s his. Lastly, even tonight, we spoke on the phone via Hangouts. He has professed his love over and over and even sent me songs. He had said in the past that no matter what happens he will always love me.

Recently he asked for a $300 gift card to help him download important encrypted documents from KCA Deutag. I emailed KCA Deutag and inquired if they had heard of this person and they said no. He is stuck on the rig but hopes to see me soon to start a new life.

By the way he initially asked me to start an account using a link he sent me so he can have the payment sent to me to hold. I said I can go on their website to do it and I don’t need the link. He was insistent so I put all fake info on it and pretended it didn’t go through. He kept asking but finally gave up.

He is now persistent in his quest for a card. All this while he is telling me how much he loves me. I told him that I’m leery of scams and that I don’t think it’s a good idea. He told me to ignore all the fake news and that he would never ever scam me. He didn’t want me to cry because it would make him sad.

Over and over he has told me he loves me and cannot wait to take care of me. One other fact, the phone number we initially texted on is registered to someone in North Carolina. He dismissed it.

Every fiber of my being says he is a scammer but it’s been hard for me to process. Any help is greatly appreciated. Like I said, even tonight Louise professed his undying love for me. I’ve also kept this to myself because I didn’t want anything to come to light with my kids and my ex.

Anyway, please help.

Piece of scum
by: Jan

Have had so many of these scummy scammers I'm done. Changed my profile picture to a sign that says "no scam zone". They're so thick one even asked what it meant. Reported about 5 in the past day or so - one in particular became very abusive when I called him out - said I needed to be in a "sycitric hospital"!

But then nastily said I must have coronavirus and he was going to tell "the Federal " about me. What a piece of sh*t! I think this was Colinolsen316 or maybe EricJohn5. There were so many. One even admitted he was a Nigerian scammer and all he ever wanted to show me was live every day. But "can we still be friends?" after I told him his fortune.

It’s not about a giggle
by: By W.

Say when you are messing with them and that they are leaving others alone. WRONG. They mess with many at the same time. They tell you their internet runs slow. DO NOT BELIEVE THAT!!! They are flying off text messages to other women. You think they have no time for other women - you have been suckered, not them. They can even say the same things to different women at the same exact times.

I messed with a lot of scammers before I realized all this. I beg all women that want these scammers to leave WWF for good to Report them every time you see one, spread the word about scammers on WWF and it will stop these men from scamming other women.

How do I know this much about scammers’s ways. I have done real video with 2 want to be scammers. 2 scammers that have both pursued me after I called them out. We talked face to face online as a condition of unblocking them. Neither was 61 or 62.

One was 36 and the other was 25. Both were Nigerian. They are taught that white USA women hate black men so they have no remorse. Finding out I wasn’t prejudiced was a shocker to both. The 25 yr old and I talk about the coronavirus and he tells me he wants me happy with a man I started seeing in "real life" since January.

I lost 4 months of my life being wrapped up with a scammer in the beginning of 2020 and 3 months in 2019 meeting other scammers I believed. I only lost a total of $600 which is extremely low. I wised up.

Wishing everyone a Scammer-Free life. Bless you all. Together we can make a difference.

You can report.
by: Map

Hey Jan, You can report them. Even if they block you. Go to your settings. Then block unblock option. In the upper right corner there is a drop down menu, click on report. Then you will see all your players. Even those who have blocked you.

This next step is seemingly important. You must change the time to your local time. Photo impersonation and chat fraud seem to be the best chances of getting them removed. I rinse wash and repeat several times. A post from 1-2 weeks ago said if you can report them from their profile page, upper right icon, and not from the chat page you have a better chance.

Again, changing the time to your time seems to be important. Worth a shot. I average about 10% gone.

He got a bit stroppy then replied chicken and chips. "Are you married with kids" I told him I was gay and my wife and I had adopted. "Enjoy your gay life" he says and disappears! Well at least I wasted a bit of his time. Only downside is you then can't report.

Hi, I played Chrishills99999 down to the last two tiles. Rebuffing the hangouts, WhatsApp email phone number attempts and the loser blocked me with two to go and would have been my highest game. If you are blocking scammers please block him for photo impersonation. He told one of a dating site.

To help each other out in blocking we have to post user name not the game name. Lastly I have had almost none challenge me in the past week. Only 3 total. Usually I would have 3 a day. Anyone else see a drop off?

Bitcoin Request
by: Anonymous

Has any one received requests for help to buy bitcoins?

Claims to be on an oil rig and not allowed to have credit cards with him. He needs to send his son bit coins so his son doesn't have to go out.

I suggested he use his bank to transfer money.

Crazy that these people think that one wouldn't see it as a scam.

And, this is someone who has been chatting neutrally for ages. I guess they wait for their moment to pounce.

Claims to be a ship captain of a cargo ship heading to Australia from Mexico. Asked him the name of the ship but he never answered. Keep asking for email etc. Then when I said a captain doesn't drive a ship he replied if I know so much he is willing to learn. Told him a ship is driven by a helmsman. With that I asked him who he really was and he replied I was a scammer and he didnt have to talk to a scammer.

I tried to report him to WWF however it doesn't seem to work half the time. He then disappeared.

I had a 6-month relationship with a David Miles, who claimed to: work on an offshore oil rig, be a widower and a single dad of two children (Tessa and Patrick). We talked on Hangouts, and he talked to my children and told them to call him "Dad", and he also talked to my father and sister.

I truly believed he was real because I never heard of a scammer talking to other family members. Anyway, I paid his "nanny" for him, paid the "helicopter pilot", and paid the "shipping company" multiple times.

He also used the email: davidpatrick0807177@gmail.com

I am a very trusting person, and I was cheated out of more than $60,000. My credit is now ruined, and my bank account is empty. I still have all the bank accounts and names of the people he asked me to send money to for him. All of the banks are within the United States. I am looking for a place to post everything.

Any recommendations?

He’s not here to play scrabble. I’ve noticed a huge increase the last 2 weeks of new male players with pictures that just don’t look authentic at all. I usually mute the conversation right away and don’t bother even saying hi and within a day the game and their profile is mysteriously gone. I decided to at least say hello back outta curiosity to confirm my suspicions & voila he spoke poor English but said he’s from Detroit MI USA and wanted my email to chat on hangouts.

Resigned the game & blocked him immediately!!

TODAY and set the time correctly.

Use "Photo Impersonation".

Every person I reported was taken down within one minute.

They will get a few women to go to Hangouts. Then their job is to pull each woman into their clutches. They romance each one using mind games and lies. Why give them that chance?

We need to protect each other and stop the scammers in their tracks.

WWF.... Do something!!!
by: GMmm

Hi all. I’ve played WWF since 2012. For the last 3 years I’ve been dealing with scammers. I play them along, use Tineye, reverse image sites, Yandex etc to identify the real owner of their photos. I then report every single one to WWF. I estimate I have played with over 4000 players! I’ve reported over 90% of them. I do my homework before reporting them.

WWF do nothing or very little to solve the problem of scammers on their app. I’ve found out that the scam is centred in Warri Delta State Nigeria. They are ALL from there. There is a network of them. How do I know this? Because many I chat to think that by confessing and telling me the truth, I may still send them money because of their sob story. NEVER!! I have never been scammed.

My problem is that WWF don’t actually care what is happening in their app! This is a copy of the latest message I sent to WWF on their ‘contact us’ facility in the app. Let’s see what their reaction is this time 🤷‍♀️ As you can probably guess, I have sent dozens of this type of message to WWF in the past.

Please ladies let’s bombard them with reports and messages. How long before they start protecting? Not everyone is as savvy as me.

Good morning. I’ve got a question for you. Why have you stopped investigating scammers? I’ve sent you dozens of reports about Nigerian scammers in the last fortnight which have been ignored. I have not only identified the guys for you, I have reversed images their photos and found the names in most cases of the guy who owns the photo they have stolen. I have proved in most cases that their life stories are fake, that they are not American but Nigerian from Warri Delta State. I have reported them to you for ‘chat impersonation’, ‘chat fraud’ and ‘photo impersonation’. When reporting these scammers I have given you an exact time in our conversation when they have lied or tried to con me. Each time I report a new scammer- which several times a day- I check the drop down list of players..... you are not taking my reports seriously or you aren’t even checking my reports.... which is it? You have told me on at least a dozen occasions that you can’t share with me what you do... that’s fine, I get it! But when I look at the drop down list of my players I can see that you have not deleted any of these blatantly obvious scammers! None of them in the last couple of weeks. They are all still playing and no doubt succeeding in scamming some poor woman on here. Please go back through my reports and do your job.... keep the women safe in your site. It’s the least you can do. I do my bit in identifying, checking photos etc- which I enjoy- you do your bit and look further into their accounts, and let’s get them off the app for good!

To report and block, I think by wasting their time engaging them. Stringing then along then I am preventing them from duping someone. Zynga does absolutely nothing to rid us of them.

I know this because when I do report, which eventually I do, I can see all the other reported players still active. Zynga either doesn’t care or have the resources to remove. They don’t give us an option of proving, via yandex stolen pics, they should have an algorithm for military ranks.

Face it, they don’t care at all, and if they do remove Owen Marc, or Phillip John then Marc Own and John Phillip pop right back up. I keep them busy, I look on my mutual friend list and when I see an elderly woman I ask her to play and tell her that Owen, Marc, Micheal are scammers and why I know that. Most all already knew.

Don’t share personal info especially phone numbers as they can be scammed. Do not think Zynga cares about us though.

FYI I was scammed that went on for months. Then he had some sad story and wanted to know if I could lend him money. I said I wasn’t in a position to lend him $10,000, so he got mad and called me heartless. Ranted and raved.

I did however inform I knew who he really was and I couldn’t believe I was so foolish. I told him I reported him and his other two identities, and called him a pig.

That helped some, but really I should have known better! Let’s be smart ladies and mute!

Finally the other shoe dropped and he asked me for money to cover medical expenses for three men hurt on the job. I had told him I was poor and broke from the beginning but i guess he forgot or did not put it in his notes.

When I said I could not send money he got very aggressive and then later dismissive.

I must say I spot them from a mile away, in many ways just from the profile pic, name, dialect and a few other things! Me personally I don’t use my real name as such but my nick name, secondly no picture of me? Reasons being the internet is a powerful search tool, never use your full name with photo of you as can be traced through social media sites, and many of the players on here can be found by their Pinterest app etc so many many ways to spot them! I go with the flow and actually end up winding the scammers up!

I wait for the old speel and then go from there - happy days! They will use someone’s profile pic from a well known social media page because half of the users left their Facebook profile on public so which it gets hacked or fb peeps forgot their password and opened up a new account, make your social media a bit more secure from scammers !!!

I did though I never gave him my real name or identity. Also said he is a rig worker who goes to church every Sunday. Lost his wife as she cheated with his best friend and is a single dad. Knew all along it was a scam but was curious to hear the BS love story he presented. I exchanged some pictures with him. Shouldn’t have. God knows what he’ll do with them.

After reading here all the similar comments I confronted him and he got nasty. I blocked him on hangouts and WWF and reported him. He even sent me several photos on hangouts and looked rather decent especially with his daughter and ex wife. Anyway another one bites the dust. Can go back to playing words in peace.

Add another to the list of scammers. He is an engineer on an Oil rig in Turkey. Widowed from his wife and oldest child being killed in a car accident leaving him with his 2 other children. Same story, needs stream (and doesn’t realize he has the name wrong) cards purchased for crew.

He says hei we in Bloomfield New Jersey but is from Germany and speaks Germany (when you correct him, he gets angry). When pushed about places in Bloomfield he says his coworker lives there and he actually lives in Atlanta. Same if you speak in German, he says he doesn’t remember it and only speaks English.

An hour in and he is falling in love and wants to marry and share his wealth of 3 mil if you just purchase stream cards. Was very aggressive about knowing I could afford to do it.

He also was talking to a single friend and told her similar stuff but that he wanted to marry her. Got upset again when she wouldn’t go to hangouts.

I tried to block and report him and Morgan Cooper or Cooper Morgan or Cooper Griffiths but they are both still actively playing.

Kathleen was good, took over three weeks to ask for money but in the meantime told me she wanted to hook up. A nurse who went from Minnesota to Syria blocked me when I refused to send her money. Asked to chat on Hangouts.

Winkiwell123 was more impatient. After just one day she asked what I would give her for her birthday. I asked if $10 was enough but she said she would make it worth my while. Sent me several pictures, she WAS hooked this time. Told me what she would like to to with me. I decided to call it a day and sent her a photo of the Nigerian flag in the shape of her country.

Needless to say she swore at me and blocked me. Hope you can avoid these two. I messaged several people who were mutual friends and warned them.

He is extremely good at saying all the right things. He even sends videos of him and his daughter. I fell hard for the words and pictures as well as the pictures and words from his daughter. His wife died in child birth and now his daughter is in a private school.

We chatted for 3 1/2 months. Is a Oil Contractor working for Exxon in Colorado Springs, CO. He claims he was awarded a contract for a job in Germany. He sent "sight seeing " pictures. This man is really good.

Then wanted me to send money so he could get his order shipped (he was short on funds). I told him I had no money to send. He begged & begged. When I said no again he stated he was going to kill himself and send his daughter to an orphanage. I said that was wrong and things would get better. He said he had nothing left to live for.

He does rather like to blow his own trumpet about how he flies interstate and off to Canada securing contracts here and there. He gets peeved if you refuse to show a photo of yourself because pointing out to Kelvin that such an idea is weird ruffles his feathers.

Despite the fact that Kelvin is a bigwig in the oil rig he was desperate to tell me that he'd been involved in an oil spillage. He even wanted to show me his burns. Bad luck too for Kelvin as not only did he suffer third degree burns but also all his money, credit cards, id, passport etc had been destroyed in the spillage.

All this was going on with Kelvin and he was still managing to play scrabble and tell me his woes, and the irony was missed on Kelvin.

UN orthopedic surgeon deployed in Yemen

My first day on WWF I complimented my partner for a 65 point word and the game was on. He announced he was German. When I began to text in German he indicated he came to the US as a child and couldn’t speak German. When I asked about his house in NYC he sent me a copy and paste from a real estate advert.

He told me he planned to open a practice when he got back from Yemen. I, who does have a couple or medical credentials, suggested he combine PT and "dry needling" in his new practice, he thought I was talking about crafts. When I asked to talk via phone, he said the rebels would ping in on their green zone. I had someone ping his phone and it is in Brooklyn. I asked for a photo of his daughter. He said "Tomorrow." When I prevaricated he sent me something that "appeared" to be from photoshop. I am a little broken hearted, but I had already fallen for a guy on an oil rig in the North Atlantic while on a dating app. He couldn’t take calls either.

Rexin Campbell- claims to be a commander in Afghanistan on a peace keeping mission. It was my first time being scammed and I fell hard. I was lucky enough that I followed my gut instinct. He wanted me to pay money so he can leave and marry me. I come from military family and I knew better.

Called me darling, babe, angel. When I ask what he did today, he says went on parade. I'm assuming he meant patrol??? Lol. He also uses boarded instead of bothered. He uses a picture of a very handsome officer and it's probably why I fell for him. I won't mention the name of the real person as I find it disrespectful.

William Lucan - claims to be a car dealer. Had a million dollar contract in Mexico but needed $10k as he needed a secure connection to make a good deal happen??? Claims He froze his account prior to leaving because he was afraid someone will steal his money. Lol

Tried everything even threatened to kill himself. Never got a penny from me. Reincarnated as Brian Anthony

Steve Micheal- oil rig worker in Gulf of Mexico and a granddaughter at home with nanny in his mansion at SC. Claims he is sending me a parcel with lots of cash. Told him don't want anything to do with it and his love quickly went away and "he's sorry okay".

Greg McDermott - Orthopedic Surgeon on a peace keeping mission in Syria. Only wants pictures and when he didn't get any, quickly went away.

Trick
by: Mrs. MAP

I know going to Hangouts is bad bad bad but after months I couldn’t resist just to see what they wanted. After a lot of boring convo we could have had in a game they want a picture. So sure, I send one with Three fingers in front of my face and tell them to send me back the EXACT SAME PICTURE. One actually did.

For sure a scammer based on a yandex search. I made him do it three times and I was flummoxed. I have blocked 10-20 and one who was for sure a scammer got through the net. 99.9 are Nigerian but not all of them. I work to hard for my $ so none lost.

What happens if you change your name
by: Anonymous

I changed my name to a non-gender specific name. & used a non-specific gender photo. Sorry, but a photo of flowers still spells out female. I went with a car & initials. Just saying anything that is gender specific will draw these scammers to you.

On a different note. In am upset to learn these low life scammers will not hesitate to steal a lonely, older, female or male’s life earnings. People block these jerks. Don’t play along with them. They are dangerous & heartless. Warn others if you can.

But block & report them.

Sent a message through WWF. I am a nice person and responded. Says he was born in New York Manhattan. Works in Russian Moscow on UN Government contract. His English not mine. Says he is a plastic surgeon, lost his wife after their son was born. When I offered my condolences he made the comment "that is life".

Suspicious and did a little research and besides a "Dr" with horrible broken English he has assumed a picture and name of a real Dr Frank William in New York.

These two are the latest in a long line. Alex is a widowed oil rig worker and Jon is a doctor working for the UN in Iraq. Both claim to be American yet their English is poor. Both profess their love for you early on and try to get you to go on hangout. Both would constantly message me then when I said I get free calls to anywhere I say the world in my job and asked them for their number, they would make an excuse not to give it.

They only want to talk on hangout so they can’t be traced. Both are widowed with kids.

What happens if you change your name?
by: Anonymous

I changed my profile picture to one of flowers years ago, but still the scammers try their luck, I assume just because my name gives away that I am female. I even had one last week who said how good I looked in my profile pic..a bunch of flowers!!!!????

I used to play along with the chat (without going off site or telling the truth about me) just for fun and game experience, but haven’t done that for a while. I find that if I don’t respond to their first and follow up greetings, they give up and time out or resign and it saves me resigning and it going in my game history as a loss.

I was wondering though, if I change my name on my profile to something non gender specific, will my game history be lost? I’ve been playing for many years and that would be a shame

Pretty sure my sister got scammed. She is basically off of the grid right now and we think she might be homeless. They all say what they think you want to hear, and we think she fell for one and he took everything she ever had. She is 75 years old and extremely naive and vulnerable.

Hotty Pics!

For the past 6 months I will have some random attractive young lady want to start a game. First clue you look at their profile and they have been playing mere days, because they just had to create an account after the previous one was blocked most likely.

Almost immediately they start chatting and calling you babe or some other flirting term, then they either want to chat with you on a site like hangouts where they can steal some of your info, or they try to get you to invest with them in Forex or bitcoin.

Just for the fun of it I have taken to stringing them along, although I am not subtle - I say things like "I hear the weather in Nigeria is lovely this time of year" I never give any real information, I say I am from Terra, and I don't work for a living, I have people send me money!

Eventually they give up, but it's somewhat enjoyable to waste their time a bit.

I’ve been stringing WWF scammers along for the past year or so to waste their time. In the past, we could talk for several days before they request hangouts. I say no and make an excuse and they say ok no problem and continue chatting until they realize I’m not giving them anything.

Now, they ask for hangouts after the first couple of messages and when I make an excuse not to, they block me or resign the game.

The Forex scammers are horribly obvious too. A few initial messages in bad English, then a couple of long (copy/paste) paragraphs about Forex trading in perfect English. I say I’m not interested and I’m blocked.

Keep posting usernames (not the fake western names like Davids Robin, but the searchable username). I still want to try to waste their time.

And when I have called them on it they just say oh remember honey I told you I was from Italy and that’s the accent you’re hearing. Or you know I’m a combination of Sweden and Russia So that is the accent you are hearing they will say.

As for video chat many of them will not video chat unless they have a white man friend to double as them on video chat.

Video chats/phone calls

I’m curious to know, from people who have gone as far as talking to these scammers by phone or video chat, how the scammers hide their true identity. To start with, their faces won’t match up with their stolen profile pictures and their accents won’t be right.

It certainly wouldn’t work for the Nigerians who claim to be from the US or other European countries. This leads me to believe that a lot of the scammers might actually be other nationalities?

I’m not going to go to the other sites to find out for myself, just forever curious how these people manage to be so successful when they are easily detected as fraudsters.

M.O 1
by: Anonymous

This man would be around 62 and signs on M.O 1. A really good scrabble players starts a conversation about moves and so on. Definitely is a charming gentleman and I think he is in for the long term scam. Supposed to be from Germany and living in Ontario.

He posts so many things that he obviously did not write and when he is in his own words his English is not good at all, which is at first understandable as English would not be his first language.

But he starts to try to find out things in very good English. I am pretty sure these guys have a play book of quotes. He very quickly falls in love and likes to talk of "our" future. He is very charming and does not get gross but I feel certain he is in for the long game looking for somebody with some money.

He was very attentive until he found out I am broke then the attention lessened. He tried to keep me on a hook. He must be collecting women. I caught him up in something very simple but he is dumb like a fox in the event that he hits on somebody vulnerable.

Here is one of his quotes he may have used on other women

"I just want you to know that You are my dream come true, the reason my smile never ceases to leave my cheeks, ~ my pearl of passion. I want you to know that I love you".

Just in case you encounter him, says his name is Oliver Mathias.

My friends are getting requests, and they are put down as mutual friends of a scammers so their friends will think it's ok to play them, also they are getting more scamming phone calls, all because I was stupid.

John Fletcher?
by: anonymous

Anyone chatting on WWF with a John Fletcher? A heavy equipment engineer on an oil rig in Vancouver, Canada (originally from San Jose, California). Widowed, 2 young daughters.
Being the skeptic I am I did a FB search and found 2 accounts under this name with similar stories. This was after he claimed he did not have a FB account. There was one with no picture and another with the picture from FB in the photos.

I sent him a friend request under the pictured account and he said he never got it. Then he said he sent me a message on FB, which I never received.

I also searched TinEye and no other pictures of this person was found. And yes, he asked me to chat elsewhere, I believe it was Hangout.

So is anyone else familiar with this name on WWF? Would it be safe to assume that an imposter is using John Fletcher's FB? Or is the FB account (s) fake too?

The alarm bells had been ringing for me which is why I searched and stumbled on this website, but still, I'm just astounded at the same stories.

Please be on the watch for a player who pretends to me a doctor based in California who is not a real dentist. He is a Nigerian using a well known Dentist picture ( Michael Apa) and passing him off like it is him. Claims he is a man of God and will ask you to talk on other platforms like Hangout and will claim he is in love with you and that God choose you for him.

He claimed he accepted a 4 months contract in Nigeria and will come spend his life with you upon the completion of the contract. He will claim he left his wallet in the USA and can't access his bank account or credit cards and ask you to send him money. He is good with music so he will send you some really nice songs and pretend he is in love. He is a fake. Be careful and smart. He will block you on Words once he has added you to Hangout.

Don't be fooled. He may even try to pass himself off as a woman if needs be. Please be warned and smart about what details you share and who you interact with. If it feels too good to be true it probably is.

Why do all these men have custody of their children and being taken care of by a nanny? I don’t buy their bs. They are narcissistic and try to manipulate your heart and your mind. They sometimes start slow to test the waters see if you will take the bait.

Fake profiles fake names and stolen pictures. Watch out. Block and report do not send them anything and dont go into chat rooms!

He is another widowed, oil rig engineer. He is very smooth, fairly good grammar, plays the game well, good conversation initially. It was about a month before he wanted to talk off-site, profess deeper feelings, and (surprise) needed $10,000 for broken equipment.

Once he was denied what he wanted, he became verbally abusive, rude and angry.

When they say they are an engineer or oil rig worker, I say really? Me too! (I really am a geophysicist for an oil company). Then I say what rig are you on or drop some other technical terms.

I asked one guy when his well was spudding (beginning), he said "what does that mean" and he knew he had been caught, he disappeared.

This one fellow Jack Morrison started professing his love for me in the 2nd text! His wife he says ran away with another man and was killed in a plane accident, now he is raising his daughter.

He initiated chat in game with me and after chatting over the couple of days that we played the game, he eventually asked to chat on google hangouts since he's an Army Medic deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan. I've reverse searched all pics he's sent to me and nothing comes up.

I'd never heard of WWF scams but heard of military romance scams and when he asked for an itunes card 1-2 weeks into chatting...it seemed suspicious.

By the end of the game he asked if we could chat somewhere else. I challenged this request with lots of my own questions & the next day all trace of him was gone from my Words app. That's when I did more research & found this 'scams' page.

Then he said he had just landed in Aberdeen and the cab driver attacked him and left him for dead. He needs money for hospital treatment. I said you're in Britain and the NHS is free. I also said my son is in the police force in Aberdeen and he would look into it but he still asked for a card so I told him he would have to wait till the weekend till the messages were checked so he has told me to block him

Same story as the others. Supposedly living in Scotland. Level 1 player. Widowed with a son. Extremely interested in asking me personal questions while playing 3 point words. When I pointed out that he wasn’t playing, it seems like he turned on a bot.

I told him it would be my last game and he turned if off. He was quick to ask me to go on What’s App and got weird when I didn’t respond. I wrote something in Nigerian Pidgin and disappeared.

Two more names
by: Anonymous

Two names to report on Word With Friends. John Mulligan and Herrick Rory. John was a smooth talker and wanted to meet me at my local airport, said he was a professional petroleum engineer. Wife died in child birth as did his second son.

Said he lived in Lockwood, Ohio, and knew a lot about my religion, his son Tom was in college in California. Well I asked him many questions, and he finally called me, but he sounded like he was from Nigeria, and he also said he was polish, so when I heard his voice I realized it was a scam, blocked him and shut him down.

He never got to ask for money. Took place in January 2020.

Herrick Rory scammed me last year so I knew to be careful.

New scam - forex trading
by: Anonymous

Ladies and gents, the new scam on WWF is to get you guys into Forex trading. So not only do they say they work on oil rigs and whatnot, they say they have a side business doing Forex trading. I haven't gotten all the way through their scam yet, but I'm guessing they'll tell you that if you send them $100 dollars they can guarantee a $1000 return, if you send $200 dollars they can guarantee a $2000 return, etc.

I did a quick google search on Forex trading and just spout out a few facts for them to make them know I already know all about it. It usually throws them off their script at that point :).

Scamming to pay for school

Scamming to pay for school. Yes this is a very common reason for them to scam. It is very important in Nigeria to get an education, although I don’t know why because they get out of school and there are no jobs. But I have come across many of them were scamming just to pay for books or for school tuition. The young men are desperate for an education. I have also learned from them it is a status thing for families to be able to see my son or my daughter who is at University graduate

Doctors in UN

Watch out for these scammers. I was contacted by two individuals who both happen to be surgeons from Turkey but working in Yemen for the UN. Wow! what a coincidence!

The first one gave a sob story about how mom is from Kentucky (really?) and dad was from Turkey. Dad was mean, mom died, grew up and met the woman of his dreams, had a kid, she died and now he is crazy about me and wants me to sign up for "Hangouts" so we can chat.

Second guy only got as far as telling me he was a doctor. If you don't know them, deny the game. I had a feeling he was fake. I think doctors would have an extensive vocabulary and would come up with better words than sea, eat, buy, etc. when playing words with friends.

He then asks for my help. He wants me to buy 3 x $100 iTunes cards. As he can’t get into his laptop and Microsoft is updating.

He got quite angry when I questioned how an iTunes card would allow him to access his laptop. He then said that he needed them so he could get onto his internet. Did question that if he couldn’t get onto the internet how was he able to play on this game.

He gave me his email so that when I get the iTunes cards and scratch the number on the back I can take a picture and email it to him. Told him I was just going to nip to the shops. He said he would wait.

He’ll be waiting a long time.

It is funny when they answer questions wrong. You will give an answer and they are like okay. Are you single?

David went to Case western, lives in Portland, but in Alabama for his last gig before retirement. I did ask him his favorite restaurants in Cleveland and he did a quick google and answered.

Chatting back
by: Anonymous

Yes, I know the scammers. Many say don't engage and block them. Well, I choose the other route and mess with them to waste their time.

Yes, it's sinking to their level but I sick of all the scammers on WWF not to mention the scam phone calls I get as well. Time to teach them a lesson and maybe eventually they will get the hint.

Here are some excepts of our "chats".

Scammer: I am marine engineer on a ship at sea in Istanbul. Me: Nice, what's the name of your ship?
Scammer: It's a vessel. Me: I know it's a vessel but what the name or ID numbers on the ship. Scammer: I already told you a vessel ship.(OK moving on)
Me: What is the name of your company? Scammer: Cargo Shipping Company. Me: Ok, but what shipping company do you work for?

At this point, he starts using profanity and says I belong in a mental hospital.

So before I block and report them, I always end the chat with:

You have been chatting with an agent of the United States Homeland Security cyber criminal division. We work in correlation with the FBI and the EFCC (Nigeria's economic and financial crimes commission). These messages have been tracked to the source and are pending investigation.

Please contact FBI Headquarters at (202) 324-3000. Reference Case Number 867-5309.

Never a green light when they're supposedly online, average 20 to 50 point words then play 3 point words, never on the "standings" or in my friends list. I even messaged them "are you a robot?".

Not just Nigeria is correct!!!
by: Anonymous

I believe the comment concerning all nationalities is correct and spot on.
As far as the game site itself, I certainly believe they are attempting to counteract this problem. Their recent hack has put them on high alert making it impossible for them to not counteract.

I myself have seen an increase in bots playing and noticed one of the bots take their turn as soon as I returned back on lines hours later. They definitely know when you go off line and back on so there is definitely something going on.

Now with all that said I have seen some high scores and high wins who are just as guilty as scamming as the knuckle heads with low scores.
I spoke with one or rather he spoke mostly and he was filthy. I was doing a search as he talked. His game was naked photos and blackmail.

Best to leave them alone.

Never chat with them anywhere else
by: Anonymous

Never go offsite with these people. I always tell them I have lots of friends and much to busy. Which is true but they say how lonely they are and how they lost their wife and maybe their child and parent in a car accident. I have heard this hundreds of times.

I have no reaction for them at all. I told the last one he could set up a support group on WWF for guys who are widowed. He says really how many do you know. I told him hundreds.

Then he says lets forget about that ok? 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Not all Scammers are from Nigeria, India, and Malaysia
by: Anonymous

Hi everyone. I would like to let you know that not all the scammers on here are from Nigeria, India, and Malaysia. Yes most are from Nigeria. But I have had scammers from the US, England, and Australia. Some of these guys have been on here for many years. And they wait for YOU to want to take the conversation off the game.

They are just like your brother or cousin, nice, caring, loving, into football, country music, camping and seem perfect. Good looking, call you sweet names after a bit.

They are perfect experienced scammers. You invite them to talk elsewhere because they don't bug you to do it. They patiently wait. Then after you and him start chatting on the phone, or on a chat site like months later then the crisis start.

Money money money needed. Remember it's not just Nigerians. It is all colors, all nationalities, all countries, races, denominations. I even had a scammer who posted as a Preacher. Pretty sick.

DAVID NEWMAN
by: Anonymous

Most if not ALL scammers are new to the game and have a single digit or very little win. So ALWAYS CHECK their profile if you accepted a new game from someone. DAVID NEWMAN portrays as a Military Surgeon who Claims to be stationed in Syria for seven months. He claims that his wife died while delivering a baby so he lost both of his wife and child. Then he came up with this idea of his credit card being compromised and that he cannot use his cc anymore since he was outside the States, the company wasn't able to send him a new one.

So then he told me that he was sponsoring a child and that he needed to send $700 to buy school supplies Blah! Blah! Blah! I also encountered two different males with two different names (forgot their names it's been a while ago). Both work on oil rigs as engineers. I am just too smart to fall for these stupid losers way of scheming people.

I love the block and report function
by: Anonymous

So. These scammers are catching on. Some have really high levels but have only been playing a year or less. As soon as one messages asking personal info, I tell them I’m not there to share info, I don’t care what they do for a living, don’t care to know anything personal at all, and to either play the game or move on.

It works immediately with some. Others pretend they too are fed up. A recent one did the word alaye after my lecture so I came here and found references to that. Very helpful. I reported and blocked him immediately as he was claiming to be military.

So. Latest scammers and I still see them playing wwf are :

Eric G. Photo of middle aged man. Level 1.

Michael David. Photo of middle aged man. Level 7

Dave J using photo of Paul Hollywood whom he claims to know. Level 1.

V.m111 using photo of man with a dog level 5. Claims he is from ‘Dallas Houston’.

I’m sure there are more. I’m hopeful they will move on to some other app.

Most of these people are so easy to spot, but I had one that even had me thinking he was a nice guy, this may be a new thing. He has been playing a few years, he carries on a real conversation, knows music, has a normal delivery job, watches football, Is not pushy, is not on all the time, does want you to text him and send pictures after a while, but understands if you don't want to.

I swear I still don't know what he was after unless it was a phone number. Oh also I tried the thing you know ; send me a picture of you with your right hand on your head; He did that. Just letting you guys know there are some fakes that are different so keep your guard up at all times.

Dont Talk To Them
by: Anonymous

Firstly they are not hard to spot at all, asking very personal questions up front and trying to get you to another chat app is a dead give away. Tell them to take a hike or better yet do not accept the chat request.

As for the one wanting to visit - that is not wise at all. This is why it continues, people giving them money. They are not as poor as you think for a start and they dont care about you just your wallet. There has been current affairs segments in my country about these scammers and believe me they think its the easiest way to work without actually working. They said up front while - and I quote - stupid women give them money they keep doing it.

No I have never been scammed, but then I have no trust in someone on the internet I dont know wanting my private information. So I consider myself lucky.

To the bleeding heart of the poor scammers. Please pray for someone else. There are billions of poor people on this planet. Most don't lie and scam in order to get iTunes gift cards. Think about it, if they are so poor -how do they have access to a phone/computer/internet to ask for money? What money are they using to pay for those services?

There are millions of homeless people in the US. Pray for them. Our government isn't helping them. It's a shame that we have tent cities in the US and everyday I see people on the streets begging for a job and food. Write to our government, your local government to help them.

Do you have a clue how many billions these scammers rake in that belonged to a lot of older women across the world. Many had to sell their houses, sell their vehicles, had their bank accounts cleaned out of all savings.

I do not agree with you regarding becoming friends as the majority get real nasty once they know you will not give them one cent. The foul language far surpasses many words I have seen on Facebook.

I recommend do not talk or play with them but instead report them on WWF and block them on everything.

Yes there are sleazy scammers all over the world. But, there are very young men and woman from Nigeria who are forced to scam because of no jobs at all, and no help from their government. Yes it is wrong. They do it for food, clothing, to make ends meet. Have you ever seen the living conditions? Again, it's wrong! But we need to pray and the world needs to help these people in a poorer country so they don't feel they have a choice but to scam to survive. Sad it all is. I know scamming is scamming, whether it's the 15 year old with no food for his parents and siblings, or the scumbag driving around in a Mercedes from California. But yet a feel for these poor Nigerians. Let's pray and befriend them. You don't have to send money. Just care.

Wendy, I agree that they are easy to spot. First name and last names both first names. Wife killed in car accident or cancer and he has one or 2 children that are in boarding school and have a nanny. They work on a rig, are on a peacekeeping mission or work for the UN. Their photos come up as multiple uses on dating sites when put through Yandex.images. Tineye is also a good site to identify stolen photos.

Also beware of Anderson in names. I have had 4 scammers with Anderson for their last name. BLOCK THEM IMMEDIATELY IF THEY FALL INTO THIS CRITERIA. Do not engage them. If they appear innocent they will not fall in love with you fast, will not ask you to move to Hangouts or WhatsApp or Skype. They will not ever ask you for money for anything. They will not pay off your credit cards. They are just stealing your information and money.

I wish all women would pass this on to others.

How long have you been spotting them? Seriously, if one has never been scammed by a romancer then their first time is hard to spot. I agree, once it has happened to you it is very easy to spot a romance scammer. I call it experience. But for those who are not experienced romance scammers are hard to spot & it is hard to admit you fell for the scam.

There are various stages that people who are scammed go through. Denial, guilt, loss of self esteem, revenge...(play with them) then finally who really cares.

I feel this website is available for everyone to vent & get their story out. So yes, once burned romance scammers are easy to spot.

But not all are as experienced & some are still in the denial & shameful stage of being scammed.

I get about five of these guys a day
by: Wendy

It’s pretty easy to tell when it’s a fake account. They all say the same things, they all have the same stories. Their English is poor.
I don’t know why some of you can’t spot them. I can spot them instantly.

If you want to get rid of them all you have to say is "Alaye" and or "AREA BOYS". Some of them would start talking to me in their language because I would mess with them. So I started doing some research.

"Alaye" means area boys (amongst other things).
The area boys are a gang in Lagos. This is where these guys are from. I have had many of them tell me that they are scamming. They have a ‘playbook’ that they read from. That’s why they all sound so similar.

Also, don’t ever give your money to anyone online.

48 Laws of Power
by: Anonymous

Yes, I got scammed, but it could have much worse. I got smart, found this site even if a little too late and became fascinated by scammers and how much they are so much alike. After I realized he and his "son" (probably one in the same) were scamming me, I stayed and played along, although never sending more money.

I engaged him in conversations about music, politics, wine, and books. I learned his favorite book is 48 Laws of Power. I had never heard of it, but certainly did some research. It was easy to see that some of these laws were used on me and I bet used on some or maybe all of you too. The site I found gives short descriptions of each law and I am passing it along to you.

www.elffers.com/low/start/index2.html

I had never accepted a game with a stranger until him and I never will again. It was odd at the very beginning he wanted me to stop playing WWF. He said he was afraid someone would come along and steal me away. Huh!

Finding this site told me he was afraid another scammer would get his claws in me. Oh, if you think you are talking to multiple people, you probably are. Telltale signs are spelling, never using your name just honey and sweetie and my love, asking questions that you just answered a few minutes ago and a difference in personalities.

Be careful stay safe. You never know who is on the other end of monitor.

Scammed

So in 2018 I was scammed. I fell big time. It all started out innocent, then I fell big time. Did not lose much money, but lost a part of my heart.

I figured it out after a month & played along. Then I started chatting with other scammers. I had 6 chats going. Then out of the blue, I had a death threat. Scared the crap out of me. They requested 450k to get rid of the person trying to kill me.

Long story short I contacted the police, nothing could be done. The emails were coming out of Nigeria. I was told to stop corresponding immediately & ignore the money requests. In the end, nothing happened to me but words of wisdom would be not to play along with them.

Sure some are innocent, but the group I was involved with, at least one scammer was hard core. Too scary for me & not worth it.

He is a scammer and he says he is an engineer in Scotland and now wants to be really close friends. I looked him up on Yanex and he was on scammer sites. He also cheats.

Interesting I reversed imaged him on Google and tin eye. Nothing on Google and no same match on tin eye. I am actually playing him now on WWF, no where else.

He has been completely appropriate but just asked to chat somewhere else. Rather disappointed.
I have lied to him about practically everything on my life but interesting enough to keep him interested.

Regarding Tyler Scott
by: Anonymous

Scammer. Not sure how many women he is playing right now. Definitely he found some innocent, unsuspecting victims because he is currently off WWF and hasn’t played words in over 2 weeks according to my research. I would love each of you ladies to say what site you are currently communicating with him on. If on Hangouts please list the email he uses with you.

I discovered a long time ago scammers have multiple emails they use for multiple women. It was educating to discover that Wayne Anderson had a bunch of email names. He screwed up after I blocked him. He emailed me that he missed me and to unblock him. He wanted another chance.

He gave me his email on Hangouts - a different email than prior. I told him that the email address didn’t show up on my hangouts. He proceeded to tell me other email addresses he uses.

Beware ladies as scammers DO NOT LOVE YOU.

Keep quitting, they’ll soon give up
by: Jolly Annoyed

It always makes interesting reading and indeed I wrote an essay back in October (under a different name then) having spent 5 months held in the grip of a scammer, though foolishly was unaware. It’s been a blighted year for me and I’m excited about 2020 as a new beginning away from these rats who make life a misery.

I’ve played WWF since 2014, and only this year has it reached a peak of scammer interference.
I’ve changed my profile to ward them off, but still they try!! I now quit immediately. Having watched the YouTube documentaries, I shudder when I think of who is behind the gorgeous profile.

DONT GIVE THEM A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME!!

And all of you who have written on here as anonymous, try next time giving your WWF profile name, and you might get some lovely people inviting you for a game! I have and I’m now having fun again!

Happy new year!

Zynga name TylerScott1966. He said he is 48, not gotten around to asking what 1966 all about. Not gotten creepy yet but its only been 2 days. It would be nice if he was legit but I am jaded and believe it is wishful thinking.

TYLER SCOTT
by: Anonymous

So glad to find this little list of information. I have been on WWF for YEARS. Did not start playing with anyone except FB friends until May this year. The scam thing was so new to me and I had absolutely no idea. Never, ever got far enough they asked for money. Some fell in love with me instantly. Some roped me along for a while.

A lot had bad English writing but kicked my butt playing (huge red flag). I started only playing people who had been on there for a while or where at level 7/8 or higher and honestly get left alone for the most part. HOWEVER, yesterday a rather handsome gentleman at level 8 started playing, English a little broken, played at same level as me. Admitted to being from another country but living in US. Not oil rig or military.

However, his profile says he has only won 1 game and just started playing in December. I am conversing to get him caught up in a lie if possible. Not sure if legit or not but thinking not.

So if anyone else out there gets a request from TYLER SCOTT it would be interesting to see what he says to someone else.

Re: Patrick Williams scamming mom
by: Anonymous

I am sure he is a scammer. You somehow need to make her stop sending money or cards. For 4 months I texted with someone I thought was a 62 year old man on a oil rig. He had a different name but by now he has probably changed it. He is not on words anymore with the name Rogers Michael.

Well for some reason he confessed to me that he is 32 years old and a Nigeria scammer. You mom is probably dealing with one also.

They steal pictures off the internet.

After finding this forum, I have realized that this is a scammer and is not legit. He said he's a neurologist in San Francisco. When I asked him about what part of San Francisco he was from, he said San Diego, which obviously is not San Francisco.

Reported, and blocked. Also watch out for SammyJ

Don’t encourage them
by: Anonymous

All of these scammers use the same scripts. The instant you realize you are playing with a scammer resign, report and block them. Don’t encourage them by going to hangouts. They have to be discouraged.

This site is very helpful.

There are a lot of nice men and women who are interested in playing.

Don’t ask them if they are scammers or tell them you will report them.

Let’s stand united and discourage the scammers
by: Anonymous

I used to get a lot of them and was very annoyed. I changed my profile picture and use my dogs picture.

When they ask if I am married with kids I tell them I am happily married with lots of children. When they ask what my occupation is I tell them I work for the Police Department on a special task force dealing with cyber crime.

This discourages them and they block me as quickly as they can 😆😆😆

Female scammers
by: Anonymous

Women immediately saying "hi handsome" (not true but subjective I guess). They're usually awful at the game and don't answer simple questions or just ask the same back without answering. Real shame - what's the worst they can steal from me? Anyone know?

To be fair, I always say hello and ask where in the world people are from, just to be sociable and even I've been questioned once!!

Andrew Flike is a scammer. He says he is in the Army stationed in Afganistan. He asked for money to pay for his internet. I reported him. He'll probably just change his screen name.

Re: Has anyone had this happen?
by: Anonymous

The white screen happens when you’re actively on their game or in their chat and they block you. It’s not them hacking or crashing your profile, that’s just what happens.

If they block you when you’re not on their game then the game you’re playing with them just disappears.

Nothing to worry about :).

All had stolen pics. All were on a rig. All needed google play cards or other types of cards. Wifi issues. Water needed. One wanted $ to buy champagne. Last one Smith Williams wanted to mail me a box with $80,000. I could take $5000 out.

None got any $. All of course were divorced and had a kid in a boarding school or with nanny.
