Beware of scammer using the name Kelvin Tyler. I played this game with him for a couple of months. He started chatting on the game then asked me to go to Hangouts. He came across as a very nice but lonely man, divorced with a son in boarding school with an approved guardian to look out for him.

He said he was an Engineer, Supervisor on an oil rig in North Pacific. I was asked to communicate by email with his son. I did this but eventually there was an excursion to be paid for and Kelvin's bank account had been frozen due to inactivity.

I offered to help and was told the sum of $538US was needed for the trip and the best way to get the money there was to buy itune cards and photograph the back of the cards so that a dealer could then send the money to his guardian. BEWARE

wwf scammer
by: Anonymous

James Madison user name jamesmalik on words with friends is a scammer. Also uses James M. as name. His picture is of a bald older man with white hair and beard. That is a stolen picture of a cruise ship captain pier paulo scala, stolen from his public sites. He is famous in the cruising industry.

James is very romantic, articulate, charming, speaks excellent english but you can tell it is not how american men speak unless they are full of bs. European fluff stuff. He is smart and blocked me as soon as I found the post on this site outing him. He portrays himself as a cruise captain or cruise ship engineer.

Jenny with the user name jenpuk1. Says she’s with the US Army in Afghanistan on a UN peacekeeping mission. She initiated a chat on wwf and it wasn’t long before asking me to get a google hangout account. I blocked "her".

Said she’s from NY and both parents are dead. The chat messages had spelling that was slightly off, like broken English.

I can't tell you how many I have had, and blocked but at least 100 over time, but about 3 weeks ago I blocked 10 at one time and never got another since. I am thinking it is the same group of scammers all working together. It's funny to play along but after a while not worth my time. Say nothing and they will go away quickly.

WWF scammer
by: Anonymous

Here is another to add to the list of scammers: RAYF71856. Same story, works on an oil rig, wife died of cancer, both parents dead, has an 11 year old daughter. He was in love after like 3 weeks and after confessing his love, asked for an Apple gift card (nothing under $100). In a period of 3 weeks, I got like 5 guys wanting to play WWF and some got nasty when you do not respond right away.

How do they get away with this, I blocked getting new players and its a shame I had to do this. By the way, my scammer hit me in August 2018. I feel bad for the photos that they share online, using children to scam.

Me too Amy A! I have one talking to me now. I think I am going to echo whatever he tells me. If he says he is stationed in Afgahnistan, I will say me too! If he says he lost his wife in a horrific accident, I will say I lost my husband in one. If he says he needs money I will say I do too. I would something to that effect. Or maybe ask them for money before they get the chance to ask you, because thats where all the conversations lead to anyway.

They prey on both male and female.
by: Anonymous

They are a dime a dozen. They are with the UN in some country, on an oil rig, they are drs and engineers. Just report them under abuse on Word, them list them as an impersonator. They are scammers, mostly wanting money. Which they will eventually try to get. They all work alike, and most from Africa.

They steal photos off the web and post as themselves. Word will disconnect them, but I don’t know how many complaints have to come in before they do.

My best advice is ditch them ASAP. Give no emails, phone numbers, addresses out.

Ever!

Military Imposter
by: Anonymous

This scammer claims to be the four star general, James Amos (who is a real general who was in the running for Trump’s Secretary of Defense.) He uses pics of the real General Amos, that a quick Google search can produce. Claims to be on a UN peacekeeping mission in Kabul, Afghanistan. He asks general questions, but upon reflection, I realize that are often the kinds of questions used for security questions.

After two days of chatting on WEF, he lured me to Google Hangouts. The next day my radar went up. I blocked him on GH. Then somehow he got my cell phone number because he started calling me (showed up on my phone as a call from Afghanistan.) My techy friends say that it’s easy to "spoof" a call to make it look like it’s from somewhere else.

Blocked him on my phone, and then got a blitz of messages on WWF. "You stupid woman. A..hole. F... you. Bitch." Obviously blocked him on WWF. Luckily I got out before the request for $ that others here report.

This guy seeked me out and the same thing - fell madly in love with my photo and wanted to chat on hangouts. I suspected all along but went along until he wanted a $100 iTunes card to update paperwork and there's your sign. Nice looking pictures but too bad I couldn't get a hold of the real guy in the pics to know he's had his pictures stolen.

I called him out and no reply since so be careful if it sounds too good to be true, it is !!

I'm battling cancer and am sickened at people's greed, deceit and lies.

Marine scammer
by: Anonymous

I've had a few on WWF message me and even though I'm married continued to tell me how much they love me blah blah blah. One in particular actually hooked me in, thought he was just lonely but watch out for a Scott Yepes as he is good, took his time with an admission of love after a couple of weeks. Very good looking alleged marine in Afganistan for about a year and has a junkie ex wife and 4 yr old daughter.

Turns out he's got several social media accounts on instagram and facebook under different variations of the name and is well known on scamhatersunited.com.

Two weeks and a hangouts app later he is telling me he needs my help with an amazon card for work or he's "doomed"

I deleted the app of course and him but beware.

This guy claimed to be stationed in Kabul on some very secretive important security mission. I knew he was a scammer but strung him along like a puppy. He kept hinting at needing to make his guys more comfortable and how he was losing many men on the frontlines. He mentioned Bitcoin and iTunes cards, all the while sweet talking me with Dear.

Claims his wife died and his sister was left to care for his son in Michigan. But when I asked him why his sister couldn't send him any iTunes or bitcoin, he sadly confided in me that his sister is being admitted somewhere. When he asked me for the cards I acted like I was going to get them for him, then at the last second asked if I should send them to Denmark or Nigeria?

He was busted and I was Quickly blocked!

Oil Rig Workers , Widowers with Kids, Lonely Guys
by: Anonymous

I have been playing this game for two years. It is very rare somebody sends me a message and if they do, usually it is for dirty photos (men!) . But, for the past two years, it's been relatively quiet and I was able to enjoy the game.

Fast forward two weeks ago, the first one was quite friendly, no romantic messages or such. But after a few days he offered me info on a "credit card" I can purchase for a minimal fee with unlimited credit limit. I immediately blocked him.

After that was all hell broke loose and I have been getting 2-3 different men everyday with the same sob story (oil rig worker, widowed with kids). I didn't think about it that much as profile pics accompanied by kids usually. I only got suspicious when there was a nonstop request for hangouts, whats app plus the fact that all of them began to get "clingy" and persistent.

Fast forward, I googled and saw this forum.

I blocked all of them and regret doing it before posting their names here. I normally do not write reviews etc but I just want all the ladies to be extra careful. I am married and not looking for something but I can easily see women falling for this scam.

Please be extra careful.

This person is a scammer. He said he was a widower and wanted to show me pictures of his two adult sons. I stupidly gave him my phone number so that he could "text" me the picture. I even strangers I play WWF with and made an exception for him.

Long story short it took a few weeks of talking online before he asked for money. I used a site called tinyeyes.com and sure enough he stole the pictures from Facebook. This man is impersonating a high ranking diplomat. He even told me that he is a United Nations diplomat.

After the Thanksgiving holiday I'm reporting him to the FBI (I'm going to my local field office). He showed me a DoD Foreign National ID card and stupidity gave me another woman's bank account number and identifying info. Watch out for this sick and depraved person.

Words With Friends ( WWF) Green Grant Fund
by: Anonymous

Scammers - Peter Morgan - sad story, divorced because wife is drug addict. Had to make a hard choice for the safety of their children, etc. Son lives in Greece with relatives. It's sweetie this and dear that when he didn't even know me.

He missed talking to me after three chat messages. English is half decent and half broken. Very persistent even when you try nicely to get them to back off. Then, BAM, all of a sudden there is some kind of green grant fund that will just give you money and you never have to pay it back.

He said He would be happy to send information via a text link - so they are now wanting my cell number. They wanted me to download hangouts and chat with me there?? Very persistent on how simple it was to use and how very private it is.

They wanted my children's names - which I would not give. I finally started asking questions about this "grant" and they started just sending the same messages they had sent previously like a telemarketer spewing their scripts. I finally called the guy on what a scam it was and told him never to message me again.

So far I haven't heard from him.

Be wary of people and don't EVER give out any personal information. If you are on Words with Friends to meet someone romantically - go elsewhere. Go somewhere where someone actually vets people. Don't willingly give out ANY information to anyone.

Identity theft
by: Anonymous

I think there's an organized effort to collect information, not just money, and use it to create identities. I've been getting WWF invitations daily from strange men who start immediately asking questions like they're reading off a form. "What is Your Marital Status?" and "Where do you live and Where did you live last?" They start with no photo, but if I say hi back, they post an image of an attractive man.

Two names to watch out for: Dave Schwart and Mark Spenser. See how they're both common names with uncommon spellings?

I'm wondering if this is getting worse since Craigslist stopped its personal ads. I hope not. I love to play and I usually have lots of games going. I am going back to my no chat policy, but it's a shame that this is happening.

Claims to be in love with me and wants to marry me. He says he is currently working on a gold mining contract in Indonesia and needs 4000.00 to get the rest of his equipment to complete the job that will pay him 40,000,000 dollars.

Of course I have not sent him any money but curious if anyone else has been playing with him and gotten the same hard luck story.

Words with Friends scammer?
by: Anonymous

Anyone chatting with Peter Milazzo? This guy seems so normal but in reading about the scams running, I have my concerns about his story. He hasn't asked for money at all. In fact, he offered to send me money to PayPal to help with my business.

I talk to a lot of clients via Hangouts so I was not on high alert. And all his pics are consistent. I still worry I'm talking to a scammer.

They are all the same
by: Anonymous

They seem to all be widowers with one or two children left for them to care for. Children are cared for by the a Nanny. They are mostly from other countries that now live here. Most claim to work overseas in contracted positions, or on ships.

They get romantic very fast and declare their love for you. Most copy their romantic intentions off of the internet. They all want a picture of you. They are very easy to pick out.

Be careful. Do not fall for it. They are after your heart and then your money.

Independent contractor (rov technician)
by: Angie

Jason Billy takes his time and says he is a Norwegian widow and has 3 kids. His sisters name is Vic. I’ve spoken to a couple of the mutual friends and asked them and it was basically the same story. I got lucky I didn’t send money but several woman I spoke to did.

He’s a independent contractor and technician for pipelines. Some of the stories say he may only have 2 kids and all boys and lives in Florida. The kids are in Norway with sister so beware he is a very sweet talker. And he may work on an oil rig as one of the woman I spoke to told me that’s what he did but everything else is the same.

Here's a new one! Says he is from Belgium but lives in uptown Illinois Chicago. An electrician doing wiring and installation and supplies. Divorced 5 years with one boy and one girl ages 19 and 21 that live in Belgium with his sister. Wants me to go to hangouts. When I said I would rather not He says "I know I am a stranger but friendship starts from a stranger. I means good will" I went to hangouts. So we chat and he says he has a new contract in Turkey and will be there for a couple of months.

So a couple days later I ask him where he is and he is in his office in uptown Illinois Chicago and after a bunch of BS he asks for I-tunes.

His e-mail is Nicolasscott2212@gmail.com

(Real name is Anthony Varrecchia a model and personal trainer. Also is gay. This guy is quite famous. He also has his own line of clothes.)


After Nicholas asked for money I blocked him. I had fun but it gets old after a while. Don't let these scammers scam you.

Told me he was a cruise ship engineer with MSC cruise line currently in Portugal on his way to Belize - finally after several days of asking the name of the ship he was on "Armonia" I did a google search and found out the ship was off the Gulf of Mexico headed to Cuba.

When I confronted him on it he said I need to stop trying to dig up dirt on him and that he would meet me one day and I would "hang my head in shame"

WWF Scammer
by: Anonymous

Goes by name Maxi Schwarz (Schwarzkopf ). Has a batman picture for his profile. Wife died of sickle cell disease eight years ago. Has a fourteen year old daughter Suzy in boarding school Florida. Parents deceased, sister died last year in car accident.

Claims to be a Lawyer - Diplomat. Very convincing and charming. Lives in Wiltz, Luxembourg. I gave out my email address after months of grooming. Several lovely photos were sent of him and his daughter.

Have been contacted by a so called doctor on Maxi‘s WWF chat from Belize stating Maxi has had a terrible car accident and is in a coma. His only contact is me through maxi’s phone go figure. He said he accessed his phone using his finger print.

He’s pleading with me to send $850US to perform surgery on him as it looks like I am very close to him.

He can’t do any surgery for his broken wrists, collar bone and leg without someone sending money first.

Clearly I have been conned. No money sent. I contacted another woman he plays on WWF and he had played her ten minutes prior even though he was apparently in a Coma for three days in Belize.

Do not trust this man!

His email is belljully12@gmail.com.

His WWF name is Maxi Schwarz bellyjully12

There are too many scanners to count!
by: Anonymous

EVERY single day when I go on WWF to actually play with real friends I get a scammer. The same old story:

* an engineer / oil rig worker / military
* widow with wife dead 4 or 5 years
* son or daughter who is in boarding school / lives with his mother / has a live in nanny
* currently working elsewhere from permanent residence in the US or UK
* uses the word ‘okay’ constantly
* calls me dear and comments on my beauty within first 5 questions
* wants me to go to hangout and he ‘will like to know me better okay" within first few comments

For those of us who are onto theses guys, it is somewhat comical and I tend to play along until I call them out on their poor grasp of English and ask why it is so bad when they have been university educated?

I told one I had a husband who is a criminal lawyer and he deleted me which was hilarious! The more women know about then, the better armed we are to knock them down. As I say to others, including my parents who are targeted by these people, thinking they are elderly and not competent if you don’t know them physically in the real world, do NOT give them anything or too much information.

Sadly, these people have no regard for others and little moralality. WWF needs some sort of way to deal with these people as not everyone is as savvy as some of us!!

Seems as if we've moved on from fake American guy on an oil rig to a fake American guy whose father is from Brazil and mom is from the US. Says that he moved to the US after his father died. I got this same story 3 times, by 3 different guys in one day. What I don't understand is how they can possibly think than an American is not going to know how another American speaks/writes.

They insist they are American and yet phrase things in such odd ways that no native English speaker would ever do. Anyway, it's annoying BS and I love to actually just play the game.

Aberdeen Oil Rig
by: Anonymous

His Name is Michael Krass on POF who is very handsome white hair 60 years old. Said he lived in Vista, CA. Started talking every day online. He was completely in love with me within a week. Widowed 7 years ago. One daughter 17 attending university in UD studying Pharmacy.

Within weeks his "daughter" emailed me, calling me MOM and how happy she was her father finally found love again. We never met, but we were scheduled to meet, but he wins a 40 million dollar contract (sent me a copy of the contract) and has to leave that week for Aberdeen, Scotland.

Gave me many details of the rig, and his english was very good, parents are dead, and he sent childhood pictures of himself. He was very good!! He cannot wait to get back, he will spoil me the rest of my life. blah!!

While on the rig his daughter in UK gets robbed of all her money and phone and will not be able to pay the school fees to sit for her exams. He's so distraught, asks me to send the money directly to her school master, and gives the routing information. Of course he will repay me as soon as he returns home.

So glad I did not allow myself to be taken by this man. His words every day were so wonderful, it was easy to fall for him.

Beware

So confused
by: Anonymous

My scammer cannot be found on any social media but I haven’t asked him if he is on social media either.

He never asked for my email or to go into chat rooms either. I’ve read that Nigerian scammers will not answer your questions and go by a script. However my scammer answered ALL my questions and even let me take the lead.

There were different things that threw me off with his English. Sometimes sounded like he was from the U.K. but claimed he was from the US. He said he was from the same city in fact.

Instead of claiming hardship he told me that the job he is on is making him a lot of money and talked about starting a business with me when he gets home.

I have scanned his pictures on every site I can find and there are no matches. I was so afraid he could hack my phone so I blocked his number.

I wanted to report him to help save someone else for falling for him but most sites require the scammers email address.

I hope to God I wasn’t reading too much into it and I didn’t let the real thing go lol! But I figured I went this long without a man better to be safe than sorry! 🙄

Words With Friends
by: Anonymous

Same. Messaged me on Words With Friends. We switched briefly to regular cellular text. The town he told me he lived in is only thirty minutes from where I live in and he was never married. Brother died in a car accident a year ago and his 12 yr old niece now lives with his mom in Ohio. Marine engineer leaving for Texas for 3 months.

He texts me every day. Picture is average guy. Sent me a picture of him and his brother and told me he misses him everyday. Sent me a picture of his niece too. His english is very good but does use "cos" frequently. Seems to be very good in geography. Told me a lot about his job in great detail. Said this will be his last "contact" because he can do consulting and stay in one place so he can raise his niece.

He has not asked me for money. On the contrary he knows that I am unemployed and asked if I missed being in the salon industry because having my own salon could happen when he gets home because this "contract" pays very well and that’s why he took the job.

He said he wished he met me before he had to leave and can’t wait to meet me when he gets back. He has answered any questions that I asked him.

There’s just things that don’t make sense. I can’t find him anywhere on social media. I scanned all his pictures and nothing came up with a red flag. His cell number is registered to Ohio where he said he lived before moving to NJ.

I’ve talked to him during the day and at night. He wanted to know if I was "into him" and he says that he is "into me" and talking to him makes him "smile ear to ear like a baby". Says he thinks about me all day at work.

I’ve never been on any dating websites. I don’t even play strangers on WWF or follow strangers when on Instagram or Facebook. I have no idea why I responded back to him on WWF but it was NYE and i guess the festivities softened me.

I have been on every scam site and social media trying to find his name or picture associated to a scam, but NOTHING.

He goes by Edward Edison and there are Edison’s in Ohio and an older man is involved with a marine oceanography company. Looks like he owns it with a partner. Another "Edward Edison" in Ohio should be 60 yrs old but died at age 37.

So my red flag went up that he stole this mans identity! He has never asked my age either. Just if I was married before we started talking and then a few days later came "do you have a boyfriend". He asked my religion and said he’s Christian and his profile pic on WWF has him standing in front of a Christmas tree. He said he doesn’t know his father and his mother was born in Israel but lives in Ohio now.

HELP! Am I being scammed? Has anyone played him on WWF? Every time he texts me I picture a Nigerian behind a computer!

Oil Rig Scam on Words With Friends
by: Dogma4

Mine had EXACTLY the same story. Needed $$$ to get back to US from Scottish oil rig. Madly in love with me. His name was Gray Harris Morrison. Into religion, love songs, "baby, honey, love you so much", etc. "we will be married."...ugh.
Made me change my email to a gmail acct to communicate...i did it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Used me once.

Had me send him a $200 gift card for iTunes. Used a credit card but he wanted me to go to Walmart in person to buy it. Duh? Out only $200, thank God.

Am married. Didn’t care.i was having marital issues...so i was gullible.

Should I worry about my credit card?

I have multiple pics of him and "his dgtr" in boarding school. Spoke on phone sev X...had thick German accent. Poor writing skills. But played WWF like a whiz. Prob cheated. Can send these pics to someone.

I fell for him only $200 worth. Contact me at lschlick@rochester.rr.com or cell 716-352-3244.if you know this guy. He was weird, but they use the romance to blind you.

He is good. Used a photo of a white man, which now I'm sure was fake. He also was on an oil rig north of Scotland and his wife died in an auto wreck 5 years ago and his daughter was in a boarding school in Lakewood Colorado.

He told me his wife's name was Elizabeth and I never could find a record of her death. He never got to the point of asking for money but used poems, music, and a lot of romantic talk.

Kelly Johnson is running a scam on words with friends. Its not his real name and he is using two pictures. One is an Arab man who is real (khaled Ibrahim) and the othe other is a white male whom I have not yet been able to identify.

He claims to have a daughter Lisa in a boarding school and claims he is a widower, whose wife died in childbirth. His claim is he works as an engineer in the sea off of Scotland. There is more but too overwhelming for me to repeat. He is looking for money to buy electric jackets for his crew.

Beware as he is a real charmer but dont be fooled.
