Report: I met Clarence Presley on He said he was living in Adams, NY and worked as a construction engineer. He said his wife of 40 years died of cancer 5 years ago. He said he had a son named Taylor, 23 yrs. old. After talking to him a couple weeks, he tells me he got a 5 week contract in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. He left on the 23rd of January. He continued to call me and gave me a phone number in Malaysia. After he had been there for a couple of weeks he begin to ask me for money to help him buy some equipment because he couldn't get a loan in the US in time to do the job. He wanted $11,500.00 but said he would pay me back. I did not send him any money. Then, he started telling me he ran out of money and wanted to come back to the US to be with me and wanted to marry me. So, he asked me if I would buy him a plane ticket. Then, he called and said, his son was with him and he didn't have enough money for his son's ticket. So, he asked if I would help his son fly over here as well. After I sent the money, he calls me to tell me his work visa had expired and couldn't pay the money because there were penalties and fines for overstay and needed $10,000.00 to pay all the fines. I would not give him the money. So he would start crying and begging me to help him because he wanted to come back home to the US. I'm now realizing he was never in Adams, NY but in Malaysia all along. He would always email me, call me, and text me, and we talked on Skype but would never video me so I could see him. We have been talking for nearly 3 months. But, I had to quit because he was always needing money from me.

Report: Chris contacted me by email on match and we traded phone numbers. In the first week he was sending me beautiful emails about how we would be together forever and he had been waiting for someone like me. Two weeks after that he claimed to have to travel to Toronto for business. Once there, he contacted me to say he neede to send iPhones to Ghana for the project but his bank account was tied up since he was out of the country. I don't have that kind of money, so he got me to give him my maxed out credit card that he paid off and then to,d me to take a cash advance from. The funds were pulled back by his bank and I owe the money to the credit card company. He also wanted my bank account so he could deposit money for me to send to Ghana via Money Gram. My bank contacted me and froze the account since he mobile deposited manfactured checks in my account. But not before I had sent $7k to Ghana for him. When I told him what the bank said, he ceased all communication with me.

Report: This one plays a good game. A 50 year-old petroleum engineer who moved here from South Africa 6 months ago. Mom dies when he was 16. Was with a women for 18 years, she didn't want to marry or have children, they grew apart about 3 years ago and broke up. Dad died 2 years ago. Decided to move here for a fresh start. Started an engineering firm, worked for the last 3 months to close a contract in Dubai. Closed it shortly after we started speaking. Got himself situated in Dubai shortly thereafter. Talked a good talk about the details of packing, flying out, time zone changes, the stress of the projects undertaking, finding residency in Dubai for the contract, buying materials and equipment from Thailand. Even managed to speak and text during the proper time changes and weave a story in between. And even managed to send pictures along the way. But failed to check the date stamps on them. One in particular was from 2011 - we're in 2016 now. Then claimed he didn't know he should notify the US based bank of his travels and accounts got frozen, but never asked for help or money. Weeks later said he wanted to keep his place here in Manhattan Beach and needed to give the landlord $1,500 to add to the $2,500 he already had with the landlord to hold his place so that when he moves back he can get back into it, but because he hadn't unfrozen the accounts yet, he had no means of getting the deposit to the landlord. Hmmm, sure, but you're running a multi-million dollar operation running pipe between two refineries 100 miles apart? Didn't smell right. Nothing checked out: no internet history on Sam Smith, on Peter the landlord and the phone number for Peter (323-435-3328), can't trace Sam's numbers (310-461-4655 and 562-245-8673). So I pushed him on getting Peter's last name and banking info to see what he'd give me. No last name provided. Said to wire money to Christina Olumbi with a Bank of America account number. The routing he gave 061000052 is for a Georgia based B of A. Sent him a text calling him out on his game and told him he needed to sharpen it if he wanted to pull this off with people. Haven't heard a peep from him, after spending hours each day on the phone in calls and texts for the last 2 months.

Report: Hello , I hope this mail meets you well. Thanks for letting me have your personal email address.I feel honored. Everything in your profile stood out. I just thought you should truly know who i am Here is an exclusive. If at my age i do not know what and when to say, then what would i be? When a wise man sees he has probably spent about half of his time in life already, he begins to assess his main goals in life. What could be more important than a happy ending?...No matter his achievements, he is reduced to nothing if he has no crown to complete him and that is a woman to call his own. Wife and Best friend.A woman who knows that even while arguing they still need to hold hands. A woman whom i can call a partner in crime. A woman whom you can tell anything. How could you think anything can make you happier in life than finding a love that knows no bound. I just thought i'd share my background with you to enable you know me more.I will break this down to segments and it would be like a case study.I come from a middle-class background, I was born in the Liverpool UK 28th, 1968. I am the only child of my parents, My mother is partly from UK and Italy.I grew up in Italy and Germany. while my dad is South African/British....My father has worked a variety of jobs, But he ended up in construction before he died when i was 3 years old. I decided to take after my father in construction but in a different style and manner(Architecture/Construction/Building Engineering). My mum was working as a medical biller for the government, she bills claims and medical stuffs,she died 8 years ago. I spent most time with my mum and was very close to her. when my dad died,we went back to the Italy and later relocated back to the UK when i was 15 years old, so i have a little bit of an accent. I was married for 16 months....We got divorced 11 years ago, It was hell for me, i tried so much to make things work but i guess we were not meant to be and she was scared of being a perfect mother, her lifestyle wouldn't let her commit to me alone.All efforts to convince her to stay failed and that really teared me apart, she died on the 2 year in a fatal accident with her boyfriend, they had drinking problems, I was dumbfounded and confused....And it cost me a lot, my concentration and so on. I have not felt the love of a woman for long time now and i really miss it, to be sincere, am scared but just want to be bold, like i said, am a one man to one woman relationship type and when i love, i love real hard, i listen to my partner and understand a lot..Some day I hope to help people make healthier, more loving decisions with their lives. Perhaps as a kind of counselor. In the mean time, I?m happy with what I am doing because I know that the work I do makes a difference.. I love everything about building and construction, I love to create new things everyday, i am into building of houses,hospitals, construction of roads, building of structures for companies and underground laying of oil pipes, i hardly get angry because i do believe that energy and should be put into something good. This will be all for now and thanks for reading, hope that you find nothing offensive in what i have written, if there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hold back to ask and would like to know more about you. Cheers and a big hug from me to you.

Report: Met through within 24 hours, we had swapped cell numbers and email addresses. Our primary mode of communication was texting. Said he couldn't call because of security reasons. After several days of texting, he told me his birthday was March 15 and would love to get a care package like his mother who would send one every birthday. He claimed to be an only child, parents died in a car accident, and he was divorced. His ex married his best friend and they both moved to Florida with his two girls, Eva and Lilly. She sold the house in Poway, CA. And he got little from the sale. He said he made a lot of money anyway. $900,000 p/year and wanted to buy a house in Malibu when he retires next month. But would be willing to buy me a house in Santa Barbara and we would live together there. I paid $134 to send the package to Accra and then I was told that a diplomat by the name of Emmanuel Shadow would deliver it to Camp Clark, Afghan. I would have to pay an additional amount to get it delivered from Ghana to Camp Clark (Postage and duty) I sent a moneygram of $259.99. I received a pic back of Leonard holding the package (Godwin). About a week later Leonard emailed a story about how he saved President Ashraf Ghani's son from ISIS and was rewarded $200,000. A few of his men on base had stolen $30,000 and Leonard needed to get the rest of the money out of there. He wanted me to hold it for him. Because of the care package, he had my address and asked me to get a hold of Diplomat Emmanuel Shadow to pick it up. That was going to cost $1500. So i sent the moneygram. Later we texted about how great Emmanuel has been and we decided to tip him $400 for his hard work!! Then I received a call from Shadow and he tells me the package was opened by Ghana customs and Homeland Sec. and it was going to cost a penalty of $36,000 to release the $170,00. supposedly wrapped up in his uniforms. I withdrew the amount and had a cashier's check sent to a wells fargo bank account under the name of ABB Shipping and Transportation. There is a one day hold for $200 and a 3 day hold for the rest. Shadow called and asked why he couldn't get the money immediately. I told him bank policy. There were a number of red flags along the way. Then when I began doing research on Prime minister of Afghan and the shipping company and on diplomats in Ghana, I realized I had been hood winked royally.

He was writing to me, first on broken spanish and then french, a little bit better but sometimes it was like a dolls talk. I got the thoughts and feelings of cutting text. The strange things about this conversation was that he did not wanted to tell me were he lived. Finally he said a place . I asked him questions when I got suspicious, and then I tried to not contact him in days but he was very stubborn. He sent photos of himself. He contacted me first and we talked for weeks . It was a lot of t of love talk from his part and about the future. First time he mentioned money was when he asked me the value of my car, and my salary. He went to an african country, at least he said so, a few days. I did not contacted him than. He phoned me many times during time. I never answered the phone. I blocked him and I did not even think of giving him any money.
