After a lot of copied love letters, he said was a very rich man with millions of dollars in an account in the United States and his account was frozen due to some unforeseen problem. If I could help him with just the taxes paid on the materials sent from Nigeria and USA. And help him with cash to pay for food and lodging. He would be back in the USA middle of November and pay me back everything and more. He had no problem coming up with ways for me to come up with Money.

Location: Morningside, Sandton, Johannesburg
Address: Monrningide mannor, Sandton, Johannesburg.
On web sites: 40fun.com
Report: This man contacted me on a single website 40Fun. His name on the website is Edward. He immediately asked my e-mail adress to communicate. First e-mail he called me angel and sweetheart, tellin me that he was born in SA but parents immigrated to England where they only spoke English. He was the only child....but 'we grew up' in our parents house and they eventually died then he studied for a Civil Engineer at the Georgia university in the USA. His beloved wife passed away years ago and he worked for Ringway Construction since 2001. He recently came to SA and says he lives in Ratcliff Rd, Rivonia, Sandton. He said he still works for this company, but I checked they are not listed as a Civil contruction cpy in SA. He has also registered to commence his own Civil company in SA as there is a big demand for this type if work in SA. His english writing was pathetic. I requested more photos and the photos that he then sent did not resembly the photo on the web site at all.The person had construction overall and a hard hat on with the name of Jason. Clearly not Frank Edward.
Name: Jim Fellows
Aka: James Fellows, James Fellows Jr, Fellows James
Location: Kabul, Afghanistan; Houston, Tx; Newark, NJ
On web sites: Facebook
Report: The text messages and instant Facebook messages I received from this man were exactly the same as email messages listed on this page from James Underwood to Linda in Canada. I was first contacted on Facebook. He sent a friend request to me first, then once I added him, he contacted me via Facebook messenger almost immediately. After a day or so of talking, he requested my phone number, then asked for photos of me through his email. We corresponded for 2 days. During our correspondence, I got pretty suspicious because of his poor grammar and vague/evasive answers to direct questions, so I started investigating him on the internet. I found 5 different Facebook profiles with several of the same profile pictures and several different pictures of the same people, and similar background information, but with some discrepancies, which made me even more suspicious. I kept digging, and I found this website with the exact words he used in his first messages to me. Despite my suspicions, I was not completely sure it was a scam until I found this website and the words were identical to his first messages to me. During our correspondence, he did not directly ask for money, but put emphasis on how stressed out he was that he could not provide a good birthday party for his son who was in West Africa with his mother who is a missionary and just had back surgery and was broke. He went on to say that she could only receive money via Western Union or Money Gram and that because he was in the desert, he could do nothing. It seemed like he was hinting around for money, but as I said, he did not come out directly and ask. I did not offer to help. Once I found this website, I told him to stop contacting me immediately.
Name: Benard Gressier
Age: Claim to be 45
Location: Claim to live in Dubai Marina UAE
On web sites: Meetup.com ( groups relating to singles; dating etc)
Report: Scammer Regarding profile Benard Gressier, Good day, Trust you are well. His profile that he posted on meetup.com is fake. My best guess is that the person is Nigerian based on his use of language, grammar, punctuation and African Slang ( I know this as I am African) He contacted me on email via meetup. He said he's single - lost wife and child in car accident; is an Engineer currently on project in Poland; is 45, living in Dubai Marina and from Manchester UK Early on I realised something is amiss as he didn't want to exchange messages on what's app claiming that he tried to download the app and that it keeps crashing/ and also didn't want to speak on phone as he wanted to get to know me better first via email; He ended two of his messages with the name Joseph( and after claimed it's his middle name); his use of the English language is not same as what a UK person uses; his emails showed he copies and pasted a lot, All of a sudden he professed he loves me so much and keep on telling me how much - and in his baby etc- that really exposed him for me as he has never met me, or spoken to me in person. He increased his expression of love right before the email he sent asking for money In the yahoo messenger chat he didn't know the abbreviation UAE and that the area he claims to live in. , the Marina, is actually in the UAE, the part I was waiting for and expected finally came - where he asked for money. He claimed he was fined by government for using illegal workers which he didn't know was illegal- they got injured on project site and he has to pay their hospital bills: and that he's short of 2400 Usd And that he would pay me back with interest I replied to him that I'm no longer interested and that he's not the right person for me. I didn't indicate to him that I know he's a scammer so to allow for the authorities to catch him I am a trained ex- Intelligence operative (ex military) and lucky for me so and could recognise early that he's a scammer. I never revealed this info to him, so he didn't know about my past work experience and background I am expressing the hope though that he hasn't already conned some of the female members of meetup.com and possibly other sites, out of money I dis report his email address to the relevant international authorities - the FBI: as he is using actual photos from people unknowingly, and my take is that he will be using mine as well- unfortunately I did send him two early on in our email exchange before I realised what he is; Thank you for your time
