Name: Jean Blaise

Address: 2381 Greengate Circle, West Palm Beach FL
On web sites: www.christianmingle.com, www.zoosk.com
Report: This was a romance scam. I met Jean Blaise on www.christianmingle.com. I felt that it was a reputable service because of the website appearance. I had not had any success before because I am extremely cautious. I screened very carefully. In a momentary lapse of judgement, I went along with an IM request. It was summer and I decided to give it a try because he said to me: "Are you open for a relationship?" He came across as genuine and honest after our first face-to-face conversation in a restaurant. We continued meeting once a week to try to get to know each other from what I could tell. After our third outing, he texted me with a desperate plea. His sister in Haiti was very ill. She had a heart attack and needed $2500 for her hospital bill. I was already becoming attached to him somehow, but I told him that is a large amount of money to loan someone you barely know. I told him that I would give him $500 as a donation for her hospital bill instead and he would have to gather the rest elsewhere. He asked for $1800 at a later date to repair his car. He had a way of making it seem urgent. He would not be able to take his son to school or get to work. The third amount that he asked me for was $1000. When I refused again, he became distant, cold, and mean. I knew then that I had been scammed. I had paid him smaller amounts of cash hoping that I was helping somehow, but he called me cheap and said he could get money from other women if he wanted and that they offer him more than that. He seems to prey on the Christianity of women.

Report: I was AYI in December 2014. He contacted me. The first thing that he ask me for was money to buy a Samsung Galaxy 6 phone. I told him that I did not even have one myself, and he kept asking for it. Then he asked me to send him $225 for his internet bill. Then he was all telling me that he was in love with me and he wanted to marry me. On his dating site he asked if I was interested in a Long Distance Relationship, that he was a Civil Engineer in South Africa. He would be home at the end of March 2015. Then he said that he was sick and in a hospital. I looked for the hospital on the map and there were no such one. Then he told me that he needed $320 for medicine and food, that he had his 15 year old son with him. He also told me that he was from White Plains Maryland. I did a search on him and no one has ever heard of him. Total Scam.
