Report: Patrick initially contacted me on Messenger through a Facebook dating site on Sept. 1, 2017. He said he's 28 years old, a lieutenant 2nd class stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, and his ex left him with a 2-year old daughter (now six). He said he was from Hanover, Germany and moved to the US 11 years ago with his mother after his parents split up - she's American and his father German. His daughter lives with his mother in Warren, Michigan and he had two more years of army service left. He also said he was tired of women his age because he had bad experiences with them and he wanted an older woman because they're honest and reliable.I told him that as long as he didn't ask for money we're good, as I'd already been through that with a charmer/scammer who got nothing from me. A few weeks after continued messaging, as he was expressing interest in me, I caught him on the same dating site calling other older women beautiful and asking them to add him. I was initially very angry and I confronted him. He was defensive at first and used foul language. Then he said he'd delete his profile from the sites. He told me that his bank account was hacked and his money stolen, and that the bank said it was his fault so the money would not be replaced. We continued to message for the next while, and I said I needed more than that for a relationship. So he then asked if I would send $400 so he could visit me because of his financial situation. I got very angry with him and told him again I'd never send money. He apologized. Over the next couple of months he continued to sweet talk me, telling me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and that he was nothing without me. Although he called me by Messenger once in awhile, I was never able to Face Time with him, text or call him, which I found unusual. But he said his phone didn't work well and that his laptop screen was cracked. At first he was going to see me by end of Sept., then he said he was going to join me on a vacation I had planned in Oct., then it was going to be for my birthday in Nov. None of that happened. So we had planned that he would take leave over the holidays and he was going to visit me Dec. 27. On Sunday he messaged me that his daughter was sick but I didn't hear from him again until the following day. I had a bad feeling that he was going to back out on our visit; instead he asked me to send him $500 towards the life saving surgery his daughter needed for abdominal adhesions. I told him I was done, that he wouldn't get a dime from me and that he was a con artist. He got very defensive and again used foul language. He tried to make me feel guilty and said if I loved him I'd give him the money. I told him it wasn't my love he wanted, it was my money. He continued his denials and stuck with his story. I'm reporting him because I strongly suspect that he looks for older women online and charms them for awhile before hitting them up for money. And he's not above using a child's illness to do it. He has a very thick German accent. I believe it's German but I'm not certain. I also have a picture of him in his car and the driver's side is the opposite side of North American cars, which is unusual. I believe the pictures he sent me of himself are genuine, but he is not. He has two Facebook pages: one as Rawlings Pat and the other created Aug. 2017 called Patrick Rawlings. Ladies beware of this guy!
