Report: He sent me a message on Zoosk, which I thought was strange because you cant usually view messages if you dont subscribe.Basically, he loved me immediately and pressured me into using Yahoo messenger, so we could get to know each other better. After about three weeks, he wanted me to pick him up from the airport, he was returning from the oil rig off Scotland, to Sydney. In his last email, he slipped up and called me the wrong name. When I challenged him, he called me common, paranoid rubbish and prayed I would rot in hell.I put a warning on FB and a friend's friend was also talking to him and was supposed to marry him in August.

First name: Richard
Last name: Doherty
Age: 52
Location: Australia Sydney and Malaysia Kuala Lumpur
On websites: Has used WAYN, Facebook, LoveAgain, Yahoo Messenger
Report: I was contacted on LoveAgain dating site. Richard said that he was living in Sydney, worked as an Engineer (Civil) had just finished building a bridge in Malaysia. After a short while on LA asked to go to Messenger. I said OK. He told me he was going/had gone back to KL to complete work. Said that he was waiting payment - he had staked his savings on this job and was going to be paid his completion payment of a large amount. Subsequently, he gained my trust, made me feel wonderful (Australian men should be sent to these guys for pre-marriage bootcamps), very much cared for, we were able to talk easily and he didn't pester me for sex. Good start bad ending, you probably know the rest, Please help me, I've run out of money, have to pay workers last payment before the contractor lets me leave the country (inferred that he was in danger of being assaulted if he didn't pay, then after I had told him to just get on a plane and sort things out once he was back in Australia, he wrote me a lovely story about trying to leave by the back door, but the Agent's men were waiting for him. So back to square one. I paid the agent's bill (I have a copy) in the interests of getting him home to Australia. ($5,500). I kept checking everything (so I thought) asking for copies of bills, airline tickets/flight times etc. Then when he was supposed to be coming home, had given me plane arrival times etc, I went to the airport to pick up and he was a no-show. Contacted him immediately, he informed me that customs had told him he couldn't bring a cheque as large as his out of the country and that they had told him to place it in a securities company. The story went that he went to Shutters Public Finance Security Company and that he had to pay 5,500AUD to set up accounts, set up an offshore account etc. I told him that he didn't have to pay anyone to open an account. That he could open and account in any Australian bank for $1. (Previously he had told me that he was of mixed parentage (Danish father and Australian mother). This was how he managed to come in and out of Australia. He gave me a tracking number from the Security Company (this was after I told him I wasn't going to pay $5,500 for anything). This has my name on it as next of kin. Then when he supposedly went back to the Security Company to retrieve the cheque, told me that he still had to pay $850 to have the cheque released. By this time I was starting to become very worried, I had paid, bills to the value of $13,000 and every time it looked as though we had things worked out another obstacle fell in our way. Eventually, I was stringing him along, trying to get as much information as I could from him and trying to get details (such as photographs of the bridge building site he had been working on) from him, so that if things did go belly up, then I could send all the information to Malaysia Police and ScamWatch and anybody else who would listen. Eventually I caved in and sent a final amount of $1000 to him for the cheque to be cleared so that he could get out of the place at last. This following e-mails about how much I was love, the best, how much he wanted to be with me, where we would live, even what we would need to buy to furnish the new house we were buying. (This was another $10,000 which I had paid and had been assured that it would be paid in full by him, how he was a good man who paid his debts, etc. - Fortunately the people who are selling this house have very kindly offered to pay me back that deposit , minus any additional advertising costs which had been incurred). He constantly referred to the cheque he had been paid) (1,250,000AUD) according to the tracking details, and which I had even had confirmed in writing by them as being a legitimate cheque. Needless to say, despite a message late that night (after he had supposedly collected the cheque) telling me that he loved me, he was coming home, you are the best etc he vanished into thin air. Any further e-mails or messages on Yahoo messenger have been unanswered since then. Last money paid and cheque supposedly collected from Shutters on Friday. I told him to get a speial clearance on the cheque, but that as that might not have cleared until Monday, and I had received that last message from him early Monday morning) I gave him the benefit of the doubt until Monday night. That's when the tears really started again, ogging up my glasses again and steam began spouting from my ears. I realise that this is my fault in that was very lonely, fell for his charm and foolishly sent him money. But it was always with a plausible reason from him. He was supposed to be a Civil Engineer and he is supposed to have gone to school in Denmark until 1975 and then UCLA, graduating in 1980. He uses these details on his Facebook page too. This guy is clever. If indeed it is one person. The ability to produce written documents purporting to be from Shutters, the employment Agent, the photographs of the bridge (which he produced very quickly one day when we were talking) I asked for them and they were sent back immediately. I realise now that I've been scammed, and even though I couldn't be sure while I was in contact with him, he was so plausible, so convincing and so charming - except when I argued with him pretending not to have any money, he became a bit hot under the collar, but calmed down immediately I chastised him for this. All up, I have probably lost $15,000, my dignity, my self-confidence and my total trust in human nature.

I googled him in Minnesota but there was nothing related. It taken until now for me to google him in relation to benin and find your sight.
