We texted one evening for 5 hours. The next day he needed $5000 to help him charter a helicopter to get off the oil rig to come see me. The texting stopped after I told him no.

Name: Murray Lysons
Location: Malaysia and Ghana
On web sites: match.com
Report: Chatted with this person for month of August and realized finally that he was setting me up to ask for money, Originally he said he was widowed, then said he was divorced and his ex took everything. However he has an impressive website for an international construction company. He will not talk via telephone just ignores the any request for personal conversation. Chats via yahoo chat and is quite a romantic. His profile is tailored to match similar experiences in the woman's life so beware of any profiles that mirror your own profile. I am so thankful my friend noticed that the picture he posted on his website had the romance scammer.com id on the photos.

Name: Fransico Nery
Location: Cape Town/Canada
On web sites: singles 2meet
Report: He contacted me via the dating site. We sent messages back and forth for about a month. Then he said because of his job he did not always find time or get his messages so could we chat privately on the chat line. This has been going very smoothly and he was telling me how wonderful I was and that he had been on the dating site and never met anyone as wonderful as I. Then I requested we meet if he was that serious. He told me he was staying in Saldana bay Cape Town and it was a 5 hour drive to me on the other side of Cape Town. I then said we should make an arrangement for a long week-end whereby he could manage that as he said he was busy with a big contract coming up. he sent me pictures of himself his daughter and ;grandchild;. He then started with he needed money for a big machine and he asked his 80 year old mom to help but she is unable . The minute I mentioned we are all in the same boat the line went dead and his excuse was he lost signal. He is now , so he says in Johannesburg trying for a new contract and will be back on Thursday. I have spoken with him on the phone and he sounds like he has a Nigerian accent, I am just worried that I am being conned again

Name: Ruddy Morgan
On web sites: yahoo messenger - offline
Report: I have been corresponding with this person for over 6 years already and he really scammed me badly. I have been scammed out of $71,319.89 US & CDN. He used every trick possible and when it came time for him to come here to Canada, he always came up with a problem, excuse or delay and has been lieing to me. He is asking me for another $200.00 and he said he would be coming for sure and I don't believe him at all any more. He said recently he was in the hospital due to being in a UPS truck the engine blew up and he got hurt by the Boko Haram in Nigeria. Today he said he is being released from the hospital and is very demanding asking me for more funds. He kept promising to put this ring on my finger at the Airport when he comes to Canada which is nothing but lies. Any man I do believe that asks for money is nothing but a Scammer. I have asked him for my funds back several times and he said I would get them back for sure once he comes here and he wants to marry me, buy a new house and car. He said he is filthy rich. I have all the proof that I sent these funds.

Location: Rye. New York
On web sites: match.com
Report: Firstly, Match.com is indifferent when a scam such as this is reported. A report is already on record regarding this man. He is very plausible but falls down on his use of grammer. Poses as the President of A Fabrello Road Constuction, a multi million dollar company with it's head office in Milan.His wife died 10 years ago in an car accident. He reputedly has duel nationality due to the fact that his mother was English, his father American/Italian. Lived in Scotland untl the age of eight. has forgotten all his Italian. Not an option with an Italian father. Pretends to be on large construction projects all of which check out . ( presumably someone has secured the contract, just not him) backed up with photographs of both
