I was contacted by "Andrea" on WRM Dating NZ Website. He contacted me first.
We have been in correspondence 3 times in 8 days. He wants to talk at the same time every night & I have said "no" because I have other things to do with my life.
Several things were odd.
- he claims to having just moved to NZ to get over the deaths of his parents (they died a few years ago)
- he has gone to great lengths to try to get me to trust him. Gave me a video clip to watch of the same man in his photo - but he claimed it was his live webcam - just no sound & lousy picture due to age of webcam -his business is an architect - but he shows no interest in the fact that my Dad was one - also no interest in the Christchurch earthquake re-build.
-he claims to have several international clients - but yet his computer is too old to have a webcam, but can work the latest software for Computer Assisted Design programme -he insists that we will settled down together - he just has to convince me (yeah, right!)
- he sent me 2 photos of his "son" - they are actually of another person he keeps telling me that he can't get a webcam & is angry that I keep on insisting that we chat via it. He sees it as a lack of trust in him because he has already shown me "his" cam
- ha asked if I'd been scammed before & how I knew - cos he was new & didn't want to be scammed. I was very vague & misleading because I didn't want to teach him to get better.
-the picture of him on WRM Dating is different to the one on his yahoo account.

He contacted me on lovetime as Frank Finlay, working as a a civil engineer, later he told that he gets contracts from companies round the world to work on oil pipe line which passes through the sea. After 10 days of chatting in yahoo messanger where we used cam twice on his request and his warm messages that he wants to marry me he claimed to go to Nigeria on a business trip. Two days later he told me that he was robbed and he urgently needed money $3000 and then he asked for $2500 promising to pay back as soon as he is back to UK. He asked to send money via Western Union to the names of other people (a policeman and then a guard from the UK Embassy) and the MSTN number and other details to tell him directly on the phone in Nigeria that we used to talk. I suspected that he may be a scammer and told him about that, but he was so nice and made me believe he is not. When he came back to UK he told me that his 90 yo mom died and he would pay me back all the money that saved his life in Nigeria which he appreciated very much either via Western Union or when he comes to meet me in my country. Two weeks later he announced that he invested all his money to purchase an oil well and included my name in the contract. Two days after that he said he would need some more of my help for his mom's burial. He asked to borrow money if I had not enough to send him $3000. I said that I could send only $500 which he gladly accepted. He promised to pay everything back as soon as his income will come three days after the burial. Of course, nothing of this turned to be true. Then several days after that he sent me the message from a fake company in a fake bank which I understood was fraudulent and told him about that. He claimed that he was scammed then and he did not know about that. To test him I asked to send me some of his recent pictures or talk to me via cam (his cam fell on the floor when we talked the second time when we used cam after we met, at least the connection interrupted and he explained it that way). He promised to fix the cam which he never did. Now almost 2 months into my communication with him, when I saw the pictures that he sent three days ago, I paid attention that he has a tattoo and asked him what is there. He said that it is a rose flower he made for me right before he went to Nigeria. I know for sure that it is not a flower as I have seen by now some other pics of him on other dating sites. I mentioned to him and sent links to the fake profiles with his pictures. He said that he shared many pictures with a lady before he met me and she may now be using them to scam people. I do not have any trust in this person as there are too many details that could prove he is a scammer. I stop communication with him and learn a good lesson from that. I can share all the pictures of him that I have after I register on your site and see other picture that maybe already there.

Witnesses stated David was the only one in the car and he was taken into police custody. We checked and there is no practicing attorney anywhere. The Law Firm is real but it is a personal injury firm. The address is a museum in Cookefield. I asked him how come they did not contact the cab company to get the drivers name and he never responded to that. He still will email me, call and text and when asked about this he said his attorney got him privileges. He told other women he was going over to Russia to work. He also told me that he was getting retirement money and sent me a copy which had Fredrick on it. When questioned about this he said they made a mistake.

Jerry contacted me on Netlog initially and then befriended me on facebook. He said he was from Florida USA and worked as an agent for the Secretary General of the UN. He was currently conducting peace talks in the Sudan and had been there for some time. I was very sceptical at first as he professed his love for me in a very short space of time. He seemed like a hopeless romantic, sent me many emails and wrote poetry. Every morning he sent me a greeting card about love & romance etc. We spoke every day on yahoo messenger and after three months he had gained my trust. I had just come out of a bad relationship and he seemed to want to hear all the details and offered advice as a friend etc. Then he said that he had two children in the USA, Jane aged around 9 and Jamie 16. His son Jamie was leaving on an excursion with the school to Accra Ghana and he had a friend there named Kelvin Henry who would keep an eye on his son. He said that he was going on early retirement after the peace talks and planned to visit me in South Africa. He wanted his son to come visit me in SA after Ghana. He asked me to phone his son Jamie in Ghana to find out if he had arrived safely etc and since we would be coming to visit in SA, it would be a good opportunity to get to know his son. I phoned Jamie and immediately we connected. His son told me what an amazing father he had, he was a good man etc. His son told me that he longed for a family and a mother again, as his mother had died of cancer some years back. Jamie and I spoke regularly on the phone at my expense. He would give me a missed call and I would have to phone him back. This boy crept into my heart and I was so looking forward to meeting him. In the meantime, his father started talking about if we met and the relationship went well, he wanted to marry me. Jamie asked me if he could call me mom as he was sure that his dad and I would hit it off when he came to SA. Not long after his son's trip to Ghana, I received an email from his fathers friend, Kelvin to say that Jamie had been in a car accident, he had been run over by a taxi and ended up in hospital and needed medical attention and money, but did not want to tell Jerry as he had promised his friend he would take care of Jamie whilst in Ghana. Immediately I said that his father had a right to know and I told Jerry. I could not understand how one could send their child overseas without any medical cover, especially if you are financially secure and well connected. Needless to say I said that I could not help as I was a single mother etc, which is the truth and struggle to make ends meet. His friend Kelvin apparently took a loan and sorted Jamie out. They even sent me a photo of Jamie in hospital. The story was that while Jamie was in hospital he never re-routed his ticket to South Africa and in turn lost his seat on the aeroplane. Jamie was stuck in Ghana and had power of attorney of his fathers account, but could not access the money as his father had listed me as a next of kin! Warning Bell, but I still trusted this man and the son even more! Either I needed to get to Ghana or Jamie needed to get to SA so we could access his fathers account and also send his father an air ticket, as Jerry could not access his account in Sudan and also gave Jamie power of attorney in case anything happened to him while he was in the Sudan. Jamie needed an air ticket, like a fool I sent some money and Kelvin put the balance of the money together so they bought the ticket. Then Jamie said that he needed more money to update his passport and travelling costs to the airport, so I had to make a plan and send more money. In the evening when I would discuss this with Jerry he would be very sweet and appreciative etc but as soon as I would indicate that I did not have the financial means, he would get mad and swear and make me feel guilty by saying that I do not care about him and his son and if the shoe was on the other foot he would help me and in the end I would get all my money back when his son came to South Africa.His English was very poor and when I questioned him he said he was born in Costa Rica. We had the odd cam chat, but I would only be able to see him for short periods of time, but he could see me. The man on the webcam was definitely the man in the photos he sent me. This last month was the most stressful of all because then a few days went by and I never heard from Jerry. When he finally messaged me, he said that they had run into Rebels and in self defence, had actually shot one and was imprisoned. Eventually there was a so called court case and he was set free as he had shot in self defence, but now the Rebels were angry and were trying to find him and he was in a safe house and he urgently needed Jamie to get to me in South Africa to access his bank account to send him a plane ticket. Jamie was set to go, had his plane ticket, updated passport and travelling money for transport to the airport. Phoned me to say he was on his way and would phone me from Johannesburg. Then a day went by and I never heard from him, his fathers friend was sending me missed calls and when I phoned back, he sid he was worried about Jamie. Eventually I got a call from Immigration from a so called customs official saying that Jamie was stopped as he only had a one way ticket and when he was searched they found documentation that said an amount of $12 million USD was in a bank account (his fathers account) and they suspected trafficking and they phoned to verify that he was coming to visit me and the nature of my relationship with Jamie. They said Jamie was too young to have power of attorney over his dads account and since they could not reach the father they suspected that power of attorney would have to be transferred to my name and that I would have to appoint a Barrister in Ghana to represent me and that this would cost a further $4500 USD. So Jamie is stuck at the Embassy, his phone was stolen with all his contacts, his dad was supposedly sitting in a safe house waiting for a plane ticket and I was apparently the only person that can save them! This was all too much to handle! What if they were involved in trafficking, I did not know either of them! I had Jamie phoning and crying saying he had not been fed and wanted to go home to his grandfather and sister Jane in the US and his father depressed and experiencing chest pains, as he was worried about his son in Ghana. Then one night Jerry threatened me and said that I had ten days to come up with the money, he knew my home address and as I like a fool had sent him an e mail from work, knew where I worked, accepted him as a friend of facebook, said he knew all my friends and family and would make life very difficult for me......I immediately ceased all contact and ignored all calls from Ghana. I kept feeling like I was being scammed as more and more money was demanded and I would have never sent money if it wasn't for the relationship I had built up with his son. I kept thinking maybe, just maybe this kid is really stranded and if I lose the money then at least I have tried to help a child. Let the truth be told, I fell for this man hook like and sinker and his son's tall tales.....so ladies be careful! I cannot begin to tell you that I have been to hell and back with this man and his so called family! Anyone reading this story would think...

Claimed to be born in Warsaw but lived in Scotland for 30 years. Told me he was a colonel in British army currently serving in Afghanistan. Asked me to top up his o2 phone , which I did twice, professed to lve me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Then told me that he couldn't get back from Afghanistan without my help. Apparently the Afghanistan government had given the high ranking officers like himself, 12 gold bars as a reward for helping their country (yeah right !!!) said he couldn't get the gold out of the country himself because of security reasons and needed my help . Said he had a man he trusted who could bring the gold out for him called Emmanuel Marku who would liase with me by email and make the arrangements. Figured out pretty early on that he was a scam artist but played along to see what he wanted. Told him that I had the police monitoring all his calls to me and his corresponce on skype, at which point he became rude and aggressive and promptly disappeared !!!!

This guy, i know him as Murphy Sweeney, emailed me through Facebook. He asked me to sent emails to his acc firstname.lastname@example.org He introduced himself as living in Heswall, Galway ireland and had a 9 year old daughter. He worked as a engineer at a Sanko ship. They travelled lot and were heading to australia. He asked me for money for sending me a package. His ship was in serious trouble and could be attacked by pirates, because they were too slow. He had 200,000 brittish pounds in his cabin and wanted to sent them to me. The package was sent by a diplomatic transshipment agency in malaysia, because they were in that neighbourhood at that time. I believed him and helped him. I got a telephone call from that agency. They had my adress. I got documents by email, which i had to show to the delivery when the package would be sent to me, as an identification. I paid 650 euro for inland taxes. Later, of course, the money was found through a scanner at customs. So i had to "free" the package for him by paying 3750 euro's! I refused to pay. I did not trust the whole story anymore and i found out that the ship he was 'working' for, did not exist and the company "sanko" did not know him. The ship had been sold 1,5 years ago to another company. So mr murphy sweeney did not get what he wanted. Talked very sweet and sent emails once ever day. I also found another victim in Holland with exact the same story. This was august/september 2013.
Please beware of this "charming" guy! He is not real!

The beginning of June, I checked www.otrapuse.lv dating site where there is already the next day I received a letter with an offer to meet you. Almost a month on the list every night for at least two hours of Skype conversations. Then he Marc Bruce Johnson announced that he had retired and fly to Riga. My e-mail was sent flight details how the flight will take place.
With this information, I did not doubt that the flight actually happen, if only noticed the discrepancy bid amounts making. It is as visually saw that something is not so, but can not understand, and indeed does not address this uncertainty.
Consequently, the flight continued on a daily basis to communicate with both e-mails, as well as Skype. June 30 evening, after a flight information Mr.Johnsons was already in Accra (Ghana) came a phone call with a certificate that will be carried out immediately boarding, flying to Rome. At the time, the aircraft would have to ascend, there came a phone call that he has been detained at customs in Accra, the crossed gold, which transfers documents in Kabul have been sorted out, but Ghana has different laws. 9000 euros was required to pay customs duty. Mr.Johnsons asked me 5000 euros from the previous correspondence was known to him a bit more than 4,000 euros. At first, I did not respond to this call because I do not own the money and I felt doubts about the deal.
But Mr.Johnsons very convincingly told him what the problem is, that is why he is on to Riga, he has been given a deadline in 7 days, otherwise he will lose everything that he owns. I recommended that he seek the help of the U.S. Embassy as well as to their friends. His arguments were so compelling that if you think about it, it's all what he said was completely real and believable. He sent the bank account number. To which to transfer the money and that he will get to deal with customs formalities. The next day I unexpectedly got a chance to borrow this amount of money. In his spell, saw the "signs", which allows the man to help. Therefore, I make a bank transfer to Ghana. After a few hours I had doubts whether I was right and wrote the Internet payment order, revocation, but the evening conversations over Skype for the withdrawal canceled.
Then the process was waiting until the money reached the addressee. After Mr.Johnsons went as though customs. Up came the phone call that was missed customs duty is due and was fined 9,000 euros to be paid within 2 weeks. At first sight, plainly told me that the money is not. I do not know how to explain what it was that made me so inadequate to handle, but I had the opportunity to be of such amount and I the money in two installments transfers. Then Mr.Johnsons stated that he was not feeling well and that same evening the long haul, which would last for 30 hours is not ready to fly. And said that flying the next day. However, at. 3:30 at night I heard a phone call that he was taken to the hospital. The next day I received an email from the hotel as manager, who explained how Mr.Johnsons has got to the hospital and was informed that Mr.Johnsons gold is lying in the hotel safe.
Well I realized that I thoroughly cheat and that there was no flight to Riga will not even Mr.Johnsons every call confirmed that flown in to sell some gold to my commitment to settle.
Mr.Johnsons continued to communicate with me, but I do not show it that I realized that I cheat. Now appeared in a version that is required for 25,000 euros in gold transfer worldwide with DHL, Or 12000 euros, so that he can arrange a work permit in Ghana and there on the spot to carry out their gold.
At present, quite clearly understand that it was a fraud, using my credulity and trust.
I re-checked the online www.otrapuse.lv and saw there's now a whole series of identical profiles, where some were present Mr.Johnsons photos. I informed the portal administration of that fact, and I see that the administration has done, and these profiles are paid off.
I am available information about that person, at least that's what he said. Marc Bruce Johnson was born on February 14, 1960 in Pennsylvania Amish community hospital. Parents have been from the Amish community in Lancaster. Father David Ballard Johnsons and Johnson's mother Sabrina Fallon, both were dead. Himself living in New Jersey. Literally just retired from the peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan.
The money, together 15,000 euros were sent to the following persons:
MERCHANT BANK (GHANA) LTD.
SWIFT code: MBGHGAC
United states, state code 00233
Hotel manager e-mail address
Last call time on Skype, there was a website address from which the call was made 220.127.116.11
Two weeks kept in communication, so that in this way the police would be able to easily find that person. Then came the request after another 400 euro to vaetu pay for the hotel and finally be able to get away from Ghana. I flatly refused to send money to another person's name. Categorically insist that the transfer can be made via Western Union. He had heard of such a possibility. I totally consciously make this transfer in Accra receive money western union representation must be presented identity document - passport. So will have access to fully detailed information on that person, the police will try to find it.
Unfortunately, the Latvian police have not done nothing for my application.
Mr. Johnsons I just sent a very brief message that is returned to America, but more than communicating with me.

Was contacted by this person through facebook said he fell in love with me and my photo. We chatted for a few months and he kept emailing me beautiful romantic love letters. Said he was a construction engineer in the Logistics & Supplies field, living in Kent County in the UK. Said his name was robert peter britt. After running a background check on him I found him on linkdln.com with his credentials and photo. When I told him about it, he quickly removed his information from the site. After a few months, he ask me to loan him $65,000 for a shipment of supplies sitting in customs in Malaysia. I refused. He then started to plead with me to send him the money he badly needed for his survival. He promised to pay back the loan after 60 days with 15% interest. As proof I could trust him trust he was going to email me the shipping documents and his passport photo and ID. When I received the docs, I decided to crosscheck them with the appropriate authorities and found the shipping docs and his passport to be fake. When I told him about it, he denied it. I ask him to email me photo's of himself which he did. Shortly after, he ask to video chat with me, I refused at first, but finally gave in to his request. Being a novice however to do video chats on Yahoo messgrs, I was not familiar with the features and must have clicked on the wrong feature because he suddenly appeared on my screen, I could clearly see his face. He however said he was not able to see me. We spoke for a just a few brief moments and he quickly ended the chat. I never did send any money to him. I can however say with 100% certainty and have proof that this is the same person already listed on your web site, but different identity, looking to be about 45 years old. I also traced his IP address to Gauteng S. Africa. LADIES BEWARE! NEVER NEVER send money to this person. He obviously is using different identities and seem to switch and re-route phone numbers.

Wife died 6 years ago He contacted me through Skype and we have been chatting via IM for about 3 months. Originally contacted me in April 2013 as Ashley Albert, but there was no real correspondence besides, Hi how you?, and then I would tell him I had to go. In March 2014, I started regular communication, then he became Hendrik Robin, when I questioned him about it, he made some excuse about certificates being in the name of Hendrik Robin. I filed it in the back of my mind and didn't think too much about it after that, but our communication stopped recently when he started becoming a bit demanding. He has never asked me for money. We have also been corresponding via whatsapp. I deleted his skype and whatsapp profiles from my contacts. But I do have all the messages saved and photos he has sent me. I was actually looking at the site, to check for someone else and his photo popped up on the site, in all honesty I wasn't surprised, and thought I would send in his new alias, I don't think he has used Hendrik Robin in previous scams, from what I can tell.

No mention of your name on letters, could send these to anyone. Sometimes felt as if I was talking to someone different. When texting. Probably was.
