Report: I actually met my scammer on 2 different occasions. Long story involved here as I was with him for 3 years. I essentially supported him from beginning to end with a long laundry list of reasons as to why he needed money .. daughter's hospital bills, son's diabetes care, in hospital himself in Ghana with malaria and typhoid fever, put in jail, needed $$ to pay off a house debt .. it goes on and on and on. I lost big money. I also saw on his facebook account that he used the alias RICHMOND HAWKINS in the past. Says he has a daughter Cynthia, son Tom, brother Eric ... but I believe this all is a big lie now. 5'11, haitian, word 'faith' tatooed on his back left shoulder, scar on his left rib cage from surgery, space between his front teeth. Very cool .. has an answer for everything strange .. always said
Name: Craig Gruver
Location: Hartford, CT
On web sites: Big Beautiful People Meet
Report: Craig seemed like a pretty nice guy. He lost his first wife in death and then divorced his second wife because she cheated on him. He had two sons -- one was 27 and was deceased from a drowning accident and the other was 7. The 7 year-old was named Ryan and he had joint custody with his wife. He worked in construction. Within a few weeks, he told me he wanted to move to where I live in Georgia. He then told me he had a big job that he had to go do in Accra. He said he would be gone about a week and a half and was then coming to see me and to look for a house here. He wanted something in the $400,000 range. He told me he would sell his house in Connecticut and also the one he had in Michigan. I heard from him consistently while in Accra. He called me one day with an emergency. He didn't have enough money for all the building materials and needed my help. He said he could get the money back to me as soon as he got here. He couldn't leave until he saw the project taking shape there and he couldn't trust the workers there to buy the good materials if he left without doing all of the purchases before he left. I did not give him a dime and that was the last time I talked to him.

On web sites: Plenty of Fish
Report: I was contacted by Monty through Plenty of Fish September 8, 2013. He was very sweet and said he would rather communicate through email. This was his first correspondence: Hi [my name], First i want to ask you to remember tonight, because i think its gonna be the beginning of always. I am divorced and have a ten year old daughter , Helen, who is my world. I'm an independent Art & Antiques research consultant. I'm a consultant to galleries, auction houses, museums, private art dealers. I make art and artifact supplies which ensure they remain competitive and open for business. I will be 45 this coming November and in search of the woman of my dreams. Someone who will build with me and share the great and not so great times. A confident, a helper, a comforter and my soul-mate. I admit i havnt been too lucky in love, so trying online for the very first time. And really hope i am first time lucky. Hopefully i am in good hands with you...right? Montgomery PS: you are very beautiful [my name]. Email I received: Good Mornin [my name], I am sorry i fell asleep last night. I tried waiting up for you but my body had other ideas, lol. I hope you forgive me. I don't know to what i owe this great pleasure, but i must admit i find myself think more and more of you at every turn. You ve become like the sunshine streaming through and lighting everything on your part. You are making me feel things i never expected to feel, its crazy,i find my heart quickening at the thought of you and i know i want to share more with you and build a stronger chemistry and meet for drinks or dinner soon. I ve come to realize that we should never conform ourselves to our own ideals of romance or love nor where it will surprise us from, because it can happen at any given time and sometimes we dont see it coming and takes us totally unaware and giving us a reason to hope for more, to aspire for more and to love even more. Thanks for this hope you inspire in me. Email I received: I woke up early this morning and and found myself sitting on the couch with my thoughts lost, my thoughts are of this spontaneous, glamorous, hard-working, down to earth woman called [my name]. And i realize i don't ever have a need to go back to pof. I realize i want to love this lady with a passion i ve never had before. I want to give her my everything, bring 200%. I want to laugh with her, cry with her, smile with her, be worried with her, dance with her, kiss her, make love to her, share with her, love her, share all that i ever am and ever will be with her. This is huge. And i so want it. You ve made a difference and making a difference. Thinking of you. Montgomery Then this weirdness happened: Hey darling, I am so sorry its been a very hectic couple of days for me. An auction house needed me to bring over some artworks for auction Saturday so i had to leave immediately Friday afternoon. I had to drive because i feared some of the works might get damaged or misplaced, but i never realized just how long a drive i was venturing into. Ended up doing a straight 14 hours. I arrived Pheonix Arizona so tired early Saturday morning i didnt bother attending the event. I took a few hours sleep and hit the road again. I just arrived home. I know you must be worried, i am ok. Just utterly tired. Heading straight to bed. I ve missed you. Montgomery Hi love, Its past 1am, i slept more than 10 hours. I guess my body isnt used to excessive fatigue or sleep. But am good now. I am curled up with hot coco thinking about you and how good you make me feel. I am sorry i must have made you very anxious the last couple of days but my trip was so urgent i didnt even have time to pack an extra shirt or pants. I had no idea i was gonna be driving over a combined 27 or so hours either. I will never ever do a silly thing like that again. I know you must be sleeping peacefully. Dream of me, its an order!! Have a great night rest! Montgomery He told me he had finally received a signed contract with a company in Oklahoma and was leaving the next day for Africa to go on an art buying trip. My love am so sorry, I ve never experienced my body being on fire before, thats how i felt yesterday evening. Every single muscle hurt, i couldnt walk a straight ten yards without pain shooting through me. I managed to drive home, took the anti inflammation med and went straight to bed. I just woke up and realized i missed you on fb. Its 2:30am. I started sleeping at past 4pm. Darling am going on a short buying trip this morning by 9:15am Am gonna remain awake to get something packed and ready for morning. Sleep well my love. Am so sorry i couldnt make it online. This hurts me as well sweetheart. But my body shutdown on me. Hi again my love, I hope you know no other woman stands a chance because i ve got you. I belong to you [my name], i will make everything up to you my love. You ve got my heart and its for always. Thanks for always finding ways to uplift my day Good morning darling, Its morning here and i might not be able to write often because am heading to the art market right away. Its so very hot here, i woke up sweating inspite of the airconditioning. I calculated the time difference, i am 6 hours ahead. Wish me luck. I wont overwork myself either. Thanks a million for the poetry, they made my morning. Thinking of you. I arrived ok. Paced often during flight and took my pain meds so the pain was minimal at best. We just arrived, its past 2am in the morning here. I ve never been to Africa before, all i ve seen of it is in the news and at the hour, chances are i wont see much until morning. The continent has has its largest art market here, in a small boarder town called Cotonoh here in the Benin Republic. I struck luck, found a hotel with internet so was able to log on. Heading to bed, too tired for a shower. I will calculate the time difference in the morning and know exactly what time we are. I miss you. Hey my love, Another day dawned bright and hot here. I am heading to another market, its in a boarder town called Cotonoh, am told its a 3hour drive to get there so i better make haste. And thanks again for the poetry, i find this one stands out

He states he is a chemical engineer on an oil rigg... ..has you totally smitten then promises to come to see you but at the last minute a disaster happens and he can't make it. He then proceeds to milk you for money until you learn to say no.. I wish I had known about this site earlier! I
