On websites: Badoo, Facebook
Report: Met this chap online on Badoo. Has an account with Facebook but was deleted. Saw him on Skype and it is the same person on the numerous photos he sent me. Chatted on wechat and claimed he works in the Oilfield business. Spoke with him for over a year and found many lies concorted by him, asked for money on numerous occasions. He gave me his residential address and I actually sent a postcard with my email address on it. The real owner of that address sent me an email to confirm there is never such a man staying here (another lie). Most likely he is the scammer himself. Have stopped communicating with him and felt I need to report this scam case and have his photos out to warn ladies of such scams.

Report: This guy said that he was Danish and a chemical engineer working on oil rigs in Timor Sea and Aberdeen Scotland. He claimed that he had dual citizenship with The Netherlands and Denmark. He claimed to be a widower and his wife had died from breast cancer a few years ago. He had been living in Sydney for about 5 years. He claimed to have had his wallet stolen whilst travelling between Timor Sea and Aberdeen, Scotland. Everything was going great for about 3 weeks until the engineers 'made a mistake' and everything froze in the pipes. He needed money for the new chemicals which he had mostly paid for. There were a few more problems whilst on the rig which he needed money for and then whilst proceeding back to London he was detained for tax evasion. He needed money for a lawyer, then the tax bill. Then he got mugged. He had sent me a passport, a document from the UK saying that he had been detained and was required to pay tax, as proof that he had been detained. Then he got sick, needed to go to hospital. Then his father got sick and he had to go back to Denmark to visit him. He gained my trust by pretending to be loving, envisioning holidays that we would go on together, having children etc. He even asked me to pick him up from the airport. On his 'way home' to Australia for the 2nd time he was stopped in Hong Kong International Airport saying that he was vomiting and they wouldn't put him on the plane. Then he got mugged, and then he got arrested for assault. This entire 'affair' went on for 6 months and I cannot believe I fell for it. He had obviously done this before. He scammed a lot of money out of me - I didn't realise the documents were fake. He also sounded Danish too. Please be careful.

Report: We met on a dating site and he was nice at first. We started talking privately on Whatsapp and then he began to beg for money , sent me pics of his empty fridge, pics from bills he soon has to pay. He said if he cant pay his phone bill, he would not be able to talk to me again and so on. I was stupid and believed him. I sent him money twice (about 450 USD) and he was still claiming for more. Soon i realized i got scammed by him and told him that i dont sent money anymore. He stopped talking to me. His phone number still works and I am concerned that other women got scammed by him.

Report: He began with compliments. The first few weeks I answered only some time, mostly out of curiosity. He made a long presentasion, as divorced, hardworking ingeneer. No family except for one daughter. Alone. Later he started sending music, lots of compliments and he 'fell in love with me'. I explained that I have an active life, I do not think you can fall in love over the internet. Asked if he wants to use Skype, but he did not. He wanted us to talk via Whatsapp, which we did. I was suspicious early on, but remained out of curiosity. So he told me he had a big contract coming in Malaysia, it would provide $ 1.2 million. He wanted to marry me after working in Malaysia and put money on my business. He went to Malaysia, sent pictures when he signed a contract. But then came the 'but'. He needed money, $ 8,000 for a document that would give permission for the contract. His credit cards had gone out, he had no internetbankin, but wanted meto send money. This was just before Christmas. I refused, saying it was impossible that he could not access his money in the United States via the Internet. He became more aggressive and assertive, but still there were many 'baby', 'dear and' honney 'in the messages. He wanted email copies of his passport as evidence, which I agreed. I saw right away that the passport was false. Right after that I continued to refuse to send money, he ended our relationship with 'that fate did not want us to be together because I refused him money. Here is his fb ore the fb he use. and were you can se the same picture. His passport (???) cid:0C569233-BB4A-42C7-902B-63FA37373DDB@lan

Report: I recognize this man from a picture that I have. I met him on FB in October 2015. Became very friendly and in a short time romance was evident. He is a smooth operator with poems, and know what to say and when to say it. Made no demands until he left to work on a rig in South Africa toward the end of November. Then gave me a story of being robbed and having lost everything. As a South African that left the country because of the crime and violence there, he caught my attention and sympathy but still no demands. I tried to get him set up with friends to help him but he declined. I should have been alerted then. Then I received shock pictures of ?his son? in an accident and in a coma? . That is when the requests for money came in. I resisted for a long time but did in the end give in and he managed to get $1100 out of me. For hospital and replacement documents. He had a person working with him in this..... willingly or unknowingly. Not sure. Her name is Carol Schneider who lives in the same building and who took receipt of some of the money from me. She was supposed to be the boy?s nanny. On the day I was to collect him from the airport. He just disappeared. He continued to read my notes on viber as I could see that , but never made contact again. He did tell me that he was going to spend the Holiday?s with his mother in Scotland. He told me that he was a Scot who came to the USA in 2008. I can provide documents and pictures when requested.

Report: This is Dave from the dating site, thanks for sending your email address across, I apologize for the delayed response, I've been pretty swamped lately, it's so hard to keep tabs of my mail on the dating site, I was just sending a quick mail when I saw a notification email from the dating site that I have a mail from you, I'm having a bit of a quiet morning thought I'd take a moment to acknowledge your mail and share a little more about myself. I couldn't help but notice that the profile on the dating site is pretty vague and can't really tell all there is about someone, thought I should use this medium to share a little more about myself... I live in Waterkloof area of Pretoria, I'm divorced, have been for almost 8 years now, blessed with two lovely daughters from my marriage, they are both 19 and 22 respectively. I'm a consultant contractor, owning my own business, I work independently as an Engineer but also as a supply chain intermediary between production companies and consumers. People around my close circle consider me to be a honest fellow. I have been fortunate enough to have the ability to travel extensively for pleasure and work. Though there are definitely advantages to traveling solo, I prefer to travel with friends or my significant other. I also enjoyed being married and look forward to having the opportunity to be married again. I am an adventurous, intelligent, hard working person who tries to keep an open mind - whether it involves a new idea or a new cuisine. I try to live life to the fullest and believe that you always can make time for something that's important to you. I believe my ideal partner is someone who is compatible with my personality and interests. Thus, I am seeking a woman who is adventurous, intelligent, has a sense of humor, is independent yet can compromise and is self confident, you seem to fit that criteria. I have not been in a relationship for long now because, I don?t enjoy the one-night stand thing, when you quickly jump into a relationship believe me, you will also quickly jump out and I don't need that kind of thing in my life right now. I want a relationship that can lead to something great. I'd like for you to share a little more about yourself, I could make out from your profile that you're divorced too. How long have you been single? When did you join the dating site? Are you seeing anyone right now? (I mean from the dating site). Anything you can share that'll shed more light on your person would be most welcomed. Mailed me between 20 -28 Nov .Engineering In and Export Company. Said he is from German origin. Told him that I understand German and that he can speak German. He could not. Problems with agent who did not do the Shipment. Meeting with importers in Cape Town. Eventually wanted money to enable him to finalize the deal. Said he is from German origin. Told him that I understand German and that he can speak German. He could not. this was the last I heard from him. I do have lots of photo's of him and his family that can be attached. Have a lovely day, I'll be looking out for your response.
