Report: Contact was initiated by Ron Stevecesser via IM.I have been corresponding with him for a little over a month now. He first asked me to send him a care package containing clothing, cookies, toiletry items, and cologne. When I agreed to this he then told me it would have to be sent via a diplomatic delivery service and gave me the email address to obtain instructions.After I had sent the items, He then asked for a computer and iPhone 4S, along with $200.00 cash to be sent....About the time the second shipment went out, I received and email telling me that I needed to wire money to get the first package out of customs as there was a customs charge, and that the delivery man would need extra money to stay in Ghana awaiting for the second package. This totaled approximately $350.00 to be wired to Charles Duke Lamptey. I sent this wire transfer, then a week later received a second request for another $399.99 for customs charges on the packages sent. I refused to send further money, but was assured the package was picked up and delivered, although the Post Office had not notified me of receipt of delivery. I feel the last two packages are still in Ghana customs. Then, miraculously, Ron is to be paid some 3.5 million dollars for having helped a man with his oilfield and he wants to send it to me via diplomatic delivery. I go along with this, although by now I know it is bogus, therefore he supposedly packs it up and sends it, but it is stuck in the airport now and needing a stamp and seal to be sent through on the plane. Ron wants me to send $4200 to pay for this. At this time, he is still trying to get me to send money for this purpose, but I blocked his name from my IM account today, so the only way he can contact me now is email.

Report: Well, this isn't much different than the report I just filed on Otto Timothy. This man messaged me on Zoosk on November 4, 2013. He sent his email in the message. I responded to him and we exchanged several lengthy emails. When I realized that another man I was messaging with was a scammer, I did a google search for some of the phrases in this other man's emails. And, up they popped. So, he's a scammer too. The webpage proved that without a shadow of a doubt - showing his same job and city and 'lines'. I have felt suspicious of him because he seemed to be leading me down a path that he doesn't have money. Talking about how it's been hard to find contracts here and that he couldn't afford to send his daughter to school. So, I was already losing interest. But again, my naive self shared way too much!!! Ugh! How do we keep going after these experiences. If it sounds too good to be true,.... Anyway, we've exchanged several emails, but it hasn't gotten to the point of asking to meet (though he has geared towards that), and he hasn't asked for money yet (which I never ever would do anyway bc I don't have any!)

Report: I met this man on Zoosk. He messaged me on Zoosk, and asked to exchange messages via email. I used an email I created specifically for dating. He started emailing me on November 1st. Over the course of the past 9 days, he has sent me emails expressing more and more feelings and love. I am new to dating again and I am a very open person so I shared a lot about myself. I have been skeptical of his emails and how deeply he seems to have fallen. I noticed that he removed his profile from Zoosk and I convinced myself that it was because he seriously wanted to see where things would go with us. He told me that he wanted to see me, that he was on a business trip in Malaysia. Well, I have been suspicious of his 'deep' feelings about love, life, and me. I even asked him if he was getting these things from a book. He was responding to questions I asked though, so I thought he was a real person. Then I googled something he wrote in his last email

I have exhausted my options sourcing for the funds to get this completed,I never meant to ask you which am sorry I did. I had no where else to go , all I needed was to get this completed get paid and go home. However, my action seem to have got you so upset you had to send that email, you gave me your love, you trusted me enoough to do that, I suggested that you help me get this solved, suddenly everything seems like an illusion, a game, and the love is gone, what happened to risking it all for love?? You seem to have pretty much concluded on everything, I don't need the money from you sorry suggested that to you, had no where/one else to go to. The way you reacted to that doesn't suggest to me the kind of person I want to be with, one who turns their back on you when all you need is their support and to remain brave. Sep 2 Hi >>>, hope you are having a great labour day out there. Not sure i'm a match to your long emails( which I enjoy reading over and over not thinking I'll have to reply. sweet,funny would best describe the emails likewise the writer Relieved I don't have to worry about a thing from your Lava profile, had me worried back there. I never really quite read through your profile, but I thought you were pretty and funny and enjoyed mailing you while you are asleep Answers Think the pictures answered the sibling and family question, we are pretty close and closer after dad left over 10 years ago and mum having treatment for cancer, think those situations have made us stronger together. Am British American, dad is from Birmingham, England.Mum is American,grew up in London, moved to T.O with mum after the divorce. My Relationship ended summer last year, we were together for 3 years, thought I had finally found the one, we had our differences and we grew apart towards the end. Afterwards thought I give relationship a break for a while and am ready to start over again this time with someone that we share the same interests, can understand each other, be there for each other, thought I give it a go with online dating not quite sure most people there understood me, got a lot of sex and weird offers, had to take down the profile and focus on what the job . But you are different from the lots, something special and different about you( charm,suave, Hombre encantador Religion is important to me,raised a catholic myself, went to catholic schools in England, go to church every now and then. Am not doing enough on that end i must say, Do have a great day, Ethan Ethan Colton To Me

Report: A special thank you to Colleen for this report.......I'm only about one week into this, so nothing is lost. Nothing lost financially, nothing lost emotionally. I assumed instantly that it was too good to be true, but there is always hope. I have tried e-harmony in the hopes that some of these men would be somewhat sincere. Ya, right! I simply just want to find the joys that life has to offer, and share it with a special man. I find it interesting how someone like this makes the claim that he is intolerant of games. I would be interested to see what label he puts on this, but not so interested that I will continue any sort of contact.
