Romance scam letter(s) from David Trevor to Mary (USA)
Good morning there,
How was your night? Mine was restful. Much thanks for sharing your email address I think good communication is key for any venture to be successful.
It is a pleasure to be hale and hearty and be here typing to you. My years of living have taught me that nothing happens by chance; there is a purpose to every event. I always say a good experience leads to a pleasant memory and a bad experience leads to a good lesson!
I am a bit of a mummy's boy still beholden by notions of fantasies and princes and princess professing love to themselves. And I am not one to shy away from my fantasies or dreams we shall call them in this case. Growing up as a young man when I became acutely aware of my place in the world around me I projected an image of the man I wanted to be like. Loving, understanding, financially well off, cultured and all that hoola baloo. And I am at that place now. I had an image in my head that I worked towards. This is why my dreams never scare me. I have always regarded a dream as a perfect form of ourselves in our minds. If only each and everyone of us understood the power is within us to make that dream a reality the world would have more positive vibes hanging about.
The whole essence of the rant in the previous paragraph (pardon me if it was long winded!) was to point out to you that here's a man whose projection of the future is not big enough to scare him rather to spur him on. And at this point in my life? I see myself with one that I truly love in body, mind and soul. I see myself with a partner who I can come to with anything without fear of reproach. I have been married once and unfortunately the death of my late wife ended that but I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that the 'Holy grail' of love is quite 'findable' unlike it's literal counterpart.
When I'm old and shaky and can't see straight anymore I want to know there is someone by my side who is old and shaky and can't see well too and is my better half. Sometimes I think this sojourn called life is just to find that one person that completes you and makes you happy in one million ways. Someone who fights you with the ferocity of a tiger but loves you with the tenderness of a hen. Someone who will stand with you when you're shaky and soar with you when the going is good. I have grown to understand that love is an embodiment of many things. Patience, communication, understanding (direct consequence of communication I believe) and forgiveness (boy o boy! A LOT of forgiveness). Life is not a bed of roses the adage goes. But it is not a bed of thorns either! Love is navigating the thorns while smelling the roses.
I am going to end this here as I feel my blood racing and my eyes gazing wistfully into nowhere. I just wanted to do my best to answer the question I posed and also share some insight into the type of person I am. I hope we are on the same wavelength but I can accept if we are not.
Have a fabulous day and good vibes all the way. I have attached one photo myself taken last month; Dinner.
Hope to hear from you soon
Thanks for writing back. I'm so sorry about your divorce. I hope it wasn't hard mentally or messy in any way. I think we are on quite the same page as I would not be jumping into anything blindly. I would love to take the slow process of getting to know someone extremely well. We are too old to be experimenting now don't you think? Hahahah
Let me share more about myself;
My name is Jonathan McDavidson as you may have already guessed. I'm a 60 year old kiwi. Proudly borne on the 3rd of January 1955
Both my parents are late but I thank God for their influence on my life. My father, Incorrigible disciplinarian, instilled in me my work ethos and battling mentality towards life. My mother, Ever blossoming flower my father used to call her, was gentler than a dove. Where most mothers would give a scolding for misdemeanor. Mine would actually burst into tears! She was terribly emotional. I used to tiptoe around her emotions until I became a bit wiser and started to RESPECT her emotions. In terms of balance, I could not have been trained better. Those two developed the person I am today and I owe them big time for being good parents. I am a father now and I see how difficult it can be. There are no absolutes and parenting is not a science. You can get it spectacularly wrong even with the best intentions. I learnt more about myself in parenting than in the years prior to being a parent.
I am pretty much Kiwi through and through. Was borne in NZ. Parents were also native Kiwis. We lived in the best side of town (at least that is what I like to think even though it was not really the best). I grew up with mountains, creeks, hills and basically nature at its finest. I almost faint anytime I go to NY! NO space!! I never get used to the compactness.
I did school in Australia though (Uni Ed.). Their education standard is better (Shh! Do not tell anyone I said that!). Finished my Bsc and Msc in Geology at the U of Mel. Started off working for the Australian ministry of Regional and Landscape development. Was snapped up by Hansen Yuncken (An Australian construction company). That was basically my first affiliation with business in the states as the company sent us on training courses all over the states. In my 13 years with them I probably did some training/business/meetings in the states at least 20 times. Anyway after all that experience I felt it time to start on my own. Moved back to NZ, started my own company with heavy business in the states (The US basically formed the chunk of my business know how so it was the logical step to take) I met my late wife in Florida on business and we got married 2 years after. So I lived my USA life in Miami but during my wife's illness she wanted to live in her fathers house here in Utah. He has passed away long ago though and we had the house. Thats how I ended up here in Utah
More about my work life:
You can check me out on linked in if you use that professional website
I work as a gemologist but I am also a qualified geological consultant. In consultant mode I liaise with corporations looking to undergo geological research and offer necessary expertise. Earlier in my years I'd take point on expeditions but now I have taken a step back from major field work and work exclusively in a consultancy role. As a gemologist I facilitate purchase, selling and distributions of exclusive mineral formations. (What you would refer to as a precious stone).I have two professional qualifications as a geologist too and so sometimes I actually go on mining expeditions and site inspection but I'm more of a consultant than anything. I do research and import export valuable minerals for either resale or retail sometimes when I am hired by companies or private individuals. I sell my stones to top Jewelry companies I'm sure you know of. I give them a good price and mine is not blood diamonds because I get License and all the paperworks done.
I'm currently working on getting my license with the Turkish Government to mine a particular area in Zonguldak, Turkey. Its work stuff and very interesting. I would'nt mind sharing with you later.
I do not work for a company or corporation, I'm pretty much self employed, but not with a huge office complex. What I do, I could from the rooms in my house.
I love what I do and I am thankful God has brought me to a place of mastery and occupational and financial fulfillment. I have done very well for myself and love to give back. I have always the role of the privileged was to lead the less privileged into the light in anyway they can.
So that is a summary of me I guess. Oh and more personally, I am a pretty private person. I don't keep meaningless friendships and I'd rather stay at home and watch a movie than go out for a drink with the 'boys'. Not because I am a recluse. I do like people. But self reflection has no people in it and I love to do that. I always challenge myself to be better, improve myself mentally, physically and emotionally and spending time with oneself is the best way to do that. But worry not, if we ever need to go for a social function Iill be more than ready and relish my role. I have a small circle of friends and I think it is fair to say I'd do anything for them as I am sure they will me. Good solid relationships are key for me.
I actually starting writing this since yesterday evening but could not finish it. I woke up first thing in the morning to round this up. Its almost noon now! I guess I should stop here. Do not want to over saturate you with information plus we have the rest of our lives in front of us...I hope!
I'm hoping you tell me more about:
1) Your self
3) I would love to know about your job ( I would still love to know about your past jobs)
4) Where do you stay ( past and present)
5) I would also love to know how long you have been on this online platform and if you ever met anybody.
Have a Lovely day!
Thanks for sharing more about yourself. I appreciate it. I must confess it seems like we are exactly on the same page in values and life in general. You seem like you have had a very interesting professional life so far. You had an amazing father and I'm sure he must be proud of the woman you have become!
I just wanted to share a bit about my family also. As you know I am a widower. I also have one daughter married with two kids who I spoil with attention when I can. Jeremy, the first grandkid just finished high school so that has the whole house in a buzz). Julian is the family artist. Let's hope Jeremy decides to be a wall street banker then! Kidding. They are free to choose their own paths. And oh, They're all Js. That was the one concession they gave me when I tried to name them. I got one scowl from Sherry and she told me they can only start with J. Michael ( Sherry's husband) named Jeremy, Sherry named Julian and poor old me was stuck with initial patents!
I lost my wife three years ago not in the best circumstances to Colon cancer even though she lived a very healthy life. I am a very protective man and the pain, suffice to say, was unbearable especially with the nature of the loss. Loss makes you different. Your perspective on life changes. You mature in a way only one who has experienced deep loss can. Please I hope you do not think I am forward when I share this with you. A greater part of my life is lived with the sense to appreciate what you have in the NOW. I do not wait to appreciate. I appreciate. I savour. I love. I cry. I laugh. I hurt. I bleed. I live my life to the fullest. Family is important to me and I have learnt to savour and maximize time with anybody I call special. I know first hand the pain of regret knowing you could have loved someone better. I choose to love and fly high. I choose to wrap my love around me like a duvet and let it comfort me. I am not looking for a reflection of my late wife in a new person. No, My grief is resolved. I miss he but I know she is gone.
My daughter was my rock during that period and we pulled through together. The grandkids were obviously not old enough to process the loss of a grandmother but Sherry and I pulled through like troopers that we are. I am very proud of my daughter. She's a painter and she owns her art studio. I'm just not happy that she is going through a bad divroce now.
I have attached some pictures of me with my grand kids and my daughter.
Shall end this here. Thanks for 'listening',
Jonathan. 1st picture: My self and Jeremy
2nd picture: Julian Myself and Jeremy
3rd Picture: Husbands sister, My daughter Sherry, Myself and the boys.
Thanks for sharing more about your family with me. Thanks for lovely information about neuroplasticity and also the very informative video. I watched it and I shared it with my daughter also. You have interesting sons and I'm sure you are proud of the both of them.
I'm sorry about the passing of your mom and I'm also glad you kicked cancer straight in the ass!
Can we chat over the phone today? I would love if you can share your phone number and also a good time to call.
Have a wonderful day,
Thanks for sharing your phone number. I got your email so late around 11:00pm. You have wonderful relationship with you sons which is great. Good time you are going back to work as retirement can be boring most times.
I would give you a call this morning. Hopefully we can connect over the phone.
Have a productive day!
It was really nice to speak to you yesterday even though the connection was not the best. I would call you from my cell today though and I hope we can have a better connection. I got so caught up with work yesterday and I was exhausted so I went to bed pretty early.
I'm not LDS also but I'm also spiritual. I believe in a higher power but organized religion is not really my thing.
I woke up thinking about you so I decided to share this little morning greeting with you.
I hope you enjoy my little minor league poetry;
It is early and the world is just waking up,
The birds are singing,
Sun is slowly rising, simultaneously the moon is going down
you feel a sense of quiet and peace,
you are still/quiet taking it in,
not wanting to breath, not wanting to stir, not wanting to disturb,
Feelings of pure joy, beyond description,
At one with all.
With a feeling of grandeur you go forth,
a smile on your face, twinkle in your eye, and love in your heart.
Your feet are barely touching the ground as you float through your day.
Ready for most anything.
I have been told and heard that poems don't necessarily have to rhyme, so i decided to come up with something simple. I hope you like it.
I would give you a call this morning and since it is the weekend. I hope we can talk more over the phone
Have an amazing day!
I'm so sorry I did not call last night. I hope we can talk over the phone this morning. I woke thinking about you and I decided to share some of my interests with you.
I was going through my archives and saw pictures of when I went diving and just wanted to share!
I love to swim. I have always believed in the expression 'Be like water; Every flowing, never forming, easily adapting'. It is what has kept me young at this age. I'm no Michael Phelps but then again I am not his age either so no contest there. :)
The pictures were taken back in NZ in. I also found me a sting ray! They're one of the deadliest in the water so I stay away. I am not really a thrill seeker. Although I love to fly. Lol! Listen to me. Searching for string rays, loving to fly. And claiming not to be a thrill seeker. I do not feel I am anyway. I do what I do because of the calm and peace. Not the adrenaline. I used to have a tiny cessna. We used to fly it to a cabin out in San Francisco and other part of California but I have sold it also since I did not use for years. I attached some pictures of it on my last flight in it a year ago before it was sold.
I am an pro-amateur car-racer also. I sold some of my race cars and I have not partook in any competition since the loss of my wife though. I still have my porcshe 918 still though even though I now drive an SUV
I also love to read. I do like to read almost anything but focus more on books that stimulate my desire to want to be better. Now and then I can pick up a book just for quality of the literature though.
And finally I love to cook. Lol, sorry I am on a roll here. I started typing just to share the pictures of the dive and I do not know how I have ended up here. Anyway I love to cook. Mum actually taught me the finer points of domestic living quite well and it has only bettered all these years. I'll take your taste buds to cloud nine wity my cooking if you promise to partake of my NZ Sauvignon Blanc blend. And after you're lucky after dinner and I'll sing and play the guitar for you. Lol! I wish. Perfect image but I cannot play the guitar.
Welp! That's all folks. Find pictures attached below.
Have a wonderful sunday!
Thanks for sharing more about yourself. Its always a thrill experience getting to know more about you. You have had interesting life and it's just amazing how we have lots of similarities.
Its great that you love water and boats! I normally love swimming in oceans but now I have a normal and safe pool now in my house. When I was in Florida last month to sell 2 of my cars, I cleaned out the house of some personal items, The pool cleaner was there and I used that opportunity to swim while cleaning the pool along with the help. I got a picture taken and I attached it to this mail.
I had quite a busy weekend and I would have a week full of activities also as I just got some new test samples from Turkey. I'm currently working on getting my license with the Turkish Government to mine a particular area in Zonguldak, Turkey. Its work stuff and very interesting. There is this discreet mine in a mining region of Turkey that has this rare blue garnets. Every corporation is trying to get their hands on it, however the Turkish govt. does not want to give it to corporations so I have applied for the license there since I am a private individual and the govt. can easily control me.
So the ministry of energy has a summit in New-york by next week and I have to make a presentation there as part of requirements to get my license I am rubbing their back so they can rub mine. Quid quo pro. Hahahaha.
I have a friend at the University here that I am using his Lab to make some test on the soil and rock samples I got this weekend from Turkey because my presentation is pertaining the result.
I would try calling you this morning, hopefully you can start your week with my voice. Hahaha
I woke up listening to this beautiful song on my iTunes.
You can listen to it on youtube. Its by a young singer called Ed Sheeran.
Hope to talk to you soon,
I hope you had a wonderful night rest and you are starting today with a bright smile. Thanks for that lovely link you shared with me!
I woke up to a wonderful mail from the Turkish Mining agency this morning. The minister of energy and mineral resources of Turkey is currently in Newyork because of a conference they have at the UN plaza so they want me to meet him and conclude my license agreement. They said they have evaluated all my documents and the terms and condition so my license has ben pre-approved!
My Mining license has been pre-approved! I got the 20 days I requested for. The exact location I want to mine has been through lots of each quakes so the earth crust has been shifted much more to the surface which makes the mining easier. It is between an Island in Cyprus and Turkey. I have conducted several tests on the soil samples and rock samples sent from the location and its all positive. Above 80% percent chances in finding the blue garnets there. So since I got the very convincing test result last year, I have been pumping money soliciting for the mining license.
My meeting with the minister would be after the summit on Friday.
I'm really excited about everything! Things have been happening so fast in my life since I met you especially the way I find myself thinking about you all day. Hahahah I think you are bringing good vibe to my life!
I would be flying to Newyork on Wednesday or Thursday and I would love to see you when I get back from NYI would drive anywhere to come see you because I'm thinking about you so much this days if we dont see, I may explode. LOL
I would give you a morning call. It always wonderful to start my day by speaking to you.
Have a wonderful day,
I went to bed really early last night because I had to get up around 3:00am to make some international phone calls to Europe and also speak to the grandkids. Thanks for sharing that lovely write up to me once again. I really love them!
I would be flying out to New-York around 5:45pm today with Delta airline. I already booked my ticket. I must confess also I really love our communication and it seems like we are creating something special already.
Its a good thing that you are good with money. I don't think I am good with money but I don't take crazy risks and I just like to keep the money in the bank. I don't do anything really special with me money even if I have been fortunate to have amassed quiet a tangible amount of wealth.
I loved how you described your house full of Testetorone and fur. Hahaha. You should be a writer. I have a lovely Shi tzu but she is in Australia now. I attached pictures of her with this email.
I would give you a call this morning. Its always wonderful to start my day by speaking to you.
Have a lovely day!
I hope you had a wonderful night rest. I wanted to talk more with you yesterday but since you were with _______ I guessed it was not the best time. I wanted to thank you so much for being open and truthful with me. Its really hard to understand though and not so conventional but I can strongly say I trust you and I believe that you would let that affect us in any way. I just wanted to state that I don't think I would be really comfortable with you telling _________ everything about me. I know you spend alot of time together but I would still like what happens in my life to be between us. I have seen very little things come between between but I think we are too old to be going through all those mess. I really care about you and I hope we can have a future together.
I love to watch sports and I was watching the Basketball game last night. I watched the Milwaukee bucks beat the Golden State warriors and I was really happy for the win. I watch all form of car races also and horse races! I love college football but I don't watch regular seasons. I watch the march madness though.
Let me know when you are up my darling. You're always in my heart,
Hello wonderful woman,
Thanks for the lovely email which put a smile to my face. I am already in the Mining island but my hotel is a resort about 30 miles from the mine.
I had a very smooth flight but I misplaced my laptop bag with the chargers and my dead phone was also in the bag. That is why I have not called you yet. I am writing this email with my iPad that was in my luggage. I thank God I brought it. I just got a charger here from the hotel staff and charged it.
I have been through serious stress this past 2 days and I would sleep for a full day before works start!
I had to clear my heavy duty equipment at the airport in Istanbul. I cleared them all successfully and they are on a truck on the way here now. It would get here by tomorrow morning. It is about 10:30pm here now
While I was going through the clearing process. It was really long, I had to go to different offices and I don't speak Turkish but my translator was already waiting for me at the airport but it was still pretty hard for me you know. The offices were extremely far apart from each other! I dropped my laptop briefcase in it was my computer, camera memory card, and cellphone at one of the office reception because my hand was full with paperwork and files. Under 5 minutes it was gone! I thank my God I had all the files on my hand. It would have been a different situation now if I lost my paper works also!
The security camera caught the THIEF! but no id yet. So they promised to get back to me under 1 week. But my translator said its impossible to get it back here in Turkey.
I arrived here with a very small plane about 1 hour ago. About 12 passengers . I arrived Turkey since about 3:00pm but just arrived here about 30 minutes ago. My translator is such a nice young man. He was already in Istanbul waiting for me and we flew back here together.
I need the same exact computer because I got some information needed for work here and I have a backup account and disc that my grandson did for me. So if I get the same exact model of computer, I can get back my contacts and documents saved on the backup. Myself and my translator checked a couple of stores in Istanbul but all the phones they had were Turkish versions and it was locked also the laptop models where the arab versions and my backup would not work on it because we tried it. They said it would take about 1 week to order the American version and I don't have that much time because I need the computer to start working.
Can you help me go to the Apple store or best buy store closest to you to get the computers and phone for me then you can ship it out here with DHL. I would email you the specifications and I would appreciate it if you can do that for me immediately. I don't know if the Apple store would accept my card numbers and I think the best suggestion is I can send you a cash or bank transfer when I go back to Istanbul to clear the remaining of my materials coming in from Germany and Russia.
I got a samsung prepaid phone for tourists. I would call you from it.
I hope you have had a good day so far. I really could not stop thinking about you all though the flight and I printed some of our earlier mails and I read through them on the plane. I can't wait to be done here because I think you are one amazing woman and somebody I would love to be with for the rest of my life! I saw a wonderful poem in a magazine on the flight. I took it with me and I got the hotel guys to scan it. I would attach it with this mail. I also took a picture of the resort I am in. It is actually beautiful.
Sending warm hugs from Turkey,
I woke up to your email and I do not want to say I'm disappointed even though I am. I never wanted money to be the problem thats why I kept asking you over the phone if you really want to do it and I should look for a way to send the money. You then laughed and said you're crazy but you're gonna do it for me. I felt loved and my hopes where high then you wrote back saying you don't trust me well enough. That was heart piercing. The model here in Turkey is just totally different and my softwares would not work on it. I tried it already. I called best buy and they said they have the computers but not the phone though.
Because of my impromptu trip, I used my credit card alot and its maxed out already thats why I did not give you the details at first. My online banking is not logging in here but I can give you the details because I trust you enough even if you don't reciprocate the trust which is heartbreaking because I have never felt the type of joy I feel when I hear your voice or get a mail from you.
Let me know if you can help me out today
I tried calling but I guess you're asleep. I've been in a down mood since I read your email
Thanks for offering to assist me. It's gonna be something we would laugh about later this month I'm sure. I really hope you keep this between us because I really dont like asking for help but with you I feel easy to talk about things with. Just send the receipt to me when you buy it.
What I need is
1. New Apple Mac book pro with Retina display 15.5 inches 512 gb
2. New Apple iPhone 6s Plus. Gold or rose gold colour.(factory unlocked 64gb)
3. New Apple iMac 21.5 inch (512 gb) I need the screen for some work stuffs. So get any model as long as its 21 inches
Everything would cost around $4000 and I can send the cash this week as soon as I figure out how.
I am waiting for my translator to send me the full shipping address and details. Thanks again!
