Romance scam letter(s) from Michael Paterson to Mary (Canada)
Hi, checking if i got the correct address?
Thank you so much for emailing me, I am really happy you wrote me and I truly appreciate it. I decided to try a dating site for the first time since i have been single so i put up a profile on match. I really do not have much belief in online meeting but i just decided to try it after so much pressure from family and friends recommended i try it(if you know what i mean). I'm in search of my Soul & dream mate, Lover, Wife and Life Companion,let me give you a brief introduction of myself. My name Alex Becker, I am 55 this year, 6'0 and still believe in chivalry :)). I unfortunately became widowed about 3 years ago. I'm Self Employed Architect, interior designer and a constructor. I was born and brought up in Rotterdam,Holland. My father is from there and my mother from Birmingham, UK. I moved here permanently 4 years ago as i fell in love with it when I came to work here few years back. So, after i lost my wife in Rotterdam 3 years ago,i decided to come here for a new beginning. I bought a beautiful home in Shaughnessy Heights, Vancouver as i had fallen in love with the place. My whole life crashed down when i lost her,we were married for 29 years and very much in love and unfortunately she passed away. I think it is time to move on now as she is in a better place right now. I have a son ( Christopher ) 22 years old) who is currently studying medicine at Oxford University in the UK. I have been single for the past 3 years . I am a man with a good sense of humor, am a man with a strong heart,loving, caring, honest, compassionate,affectionate. I am a man of faith who believes in a higher power. I like swimming, camping,fishing,reading & writing,tennis,skiing, Football,Basketball,Baseball, golfing etc. When i read through your profile i was really interested and eager to send you an email on there to show my interest. I think we have so much in common and would like to give this a chance and see where this might lead to.Anyway, let me not bore you with a long email,please tell me more about yourself and if possible you could attach more pictures of yourself in your next email just as i have done here. Thank you so much and have a wonderful rest of the evening
Morning Maryam, Thank you for taking out time to writing me back. As a matter of fact, I'm honored and very happy that you took a step, signed up to match and actually responded to me. Thank you very much once again. You come across as humble and genuine and i like that. You deserve all the happiness coming your way! So tell me, What are your passions? Where would you like to see yourself in the next 3 years?
I think you are a very beautiful and sweet lady. I would like to get closer to you and learn more about you. You can ask me anything you would like to know about me.It would be nice to get to know every little thing about you.Call me old fashioned but i like to do it the conventional way, get to know each other proper and see how things turn out eventually from meeting and dates and all that it entails. Oh and i still open doors, chivalry still exists. As it is,I can tell we have so much in common and it would be nice for us to just make out time and learn about each other. Do you agree with me? There is no doubt about that fact that i am attracted to you and I'm happy we came across each other here on match. I am looking forward to meeting you in person soon and hopefully things would work out as we get to know each other. I would like to know what your desires are in a man. How u would like to be treated. I liked everything i saw on your profile. I hope you can be that woman i have been waiting for all this while. You seem like a good match, the perfect friend for me and the type i would be able to open up to. I'm totally going to be myself and i expect the same from you, but if there's anything you don't like about me as we get along, please do not hesitate to let me know. I believe communication is key. Here are some things about me, Its been a rocky past couple of years, due to my past state of mind, I have always kept myself busy and carried away by my job. I like to spend time with my son when I am not working. He is a source of joy and happiness to me. I want to start living again. To share life with someone caring and down to earth. I want to feel that teenage love again. To be able to cuddle and snuggle while watching movies all weekend. To travel and wear matching t shirts. When I play sport it is mostly golf or tennis. I travel occasionally for work,but haven't done that in quite a while now. What do you do for fun? Any extra curricula? What kind of person are you.
Life has to go on at this point. I know i need to be as opened as much as possible at this stage of my life so i can find someone to grow old with. Which is the journey i have embarked on this new year. I hope i am making a good choice trying this out with you because i have not done this in the longest time. Thank you for the pictures, love them, you look stunning!!I look forward to hearing from you and i hope i did not bore you with this very long email. Like i said,i believe in communication. Hoping to hear from you really soon.
Morning Mayam :)
I must say, i am really enjoying this, feeling like a teen again. Thank you so much and i really appreciate it. I feel like you are a generous person with a good heart.I love it , it says a lot about your personality and believe me when i say this, you deserve all the good and happiness coming your way way, that is the law of Karma. I hope you'd agree with me that we need to meet up at some point,til our schedules are both open, and the beauty is in the journey, not the destination :) . But i can tell we are both good writers and we both express ourselves so freely via email. I think it's a good thing. Don't you think so? I am sure every single second invested in the foundation of a relationship is always an addition to the success of it. So i do not see it as a waste writing each other and learning more about each other. So at this point,i don't know if i am permitted to make my first request by asking if we can put a voice behind the emails. So if i can have your phone number,I can always ring you? Would be really nice. Oh and please do let me know the best times to call you :) I will quickly write a bit more about myself now as I have a very busy day today due to my project at hand, I have to pick up some materials for a housing project i am working on ,looks like i will be having a busy week. It was really nice to receive mail from you today. I guess i have been on your mind just as you have been on mine.
I like what I have read about you and I am very interested in getting to know you better, and the more i read from you,the more attracted I get to you. I do not want to rush as that may spoil what we are are building. I am optimistic that we will take this to the next level after we get together to meet. I respect the process, and i like it when it happens organically. More about me,if you won't mind me ranting before i leave here as I said I'd be having a long day. I lived in Rotterdam with my parents till i turned 20, my dad retired from active service then we moved to the Birmingham UK. I lived in Birmingham UK with my parents for some years and also attended college there. After college, i got a job and moved back to Rotterdam where i got married settled down .I recently moved here after the lost of my wife, so you can say I am new to the area. Chris my son lives and study in the UK, he visits home often(3-4 times a year and he was here for Christmas and New year).I will tell you more about him and his mother as we get closer, Although,it sometimes gets emotional. I was raised as the only child because my mother had complications after she had me. I grew up with all the love and affection from both my parents. Not that i was spoiled in any way or over pampered or anything I remember having my dad spank me really hard whenever i misbehaved,lol. I miss him a lot because we were very close, everything i am today, i learned from him. He passed way 12 yrs ago, My mum still lives in the UK as she needed to be closer to her family, she turns 82 in November. She visits me from time to time. She is still very active even at that age. I have been designing homes, sites, buildings for the past 31 years, I studied architectural design in College and i work privately. Do you mind telling when your birthday is? Mine is Dec 19th, that makes me a Sagittarius and Chris the 5th of march which makes him a Pisces. I am not much of a zodiac believer but well aware of it lol. I should go now and get on with my day. I will be thinking about you and hopefully talk to you soon after work if you give the digits to reach you on as i have requested. Getting to know you has been a new feeling(in a good way). You are truly a very beautiful hearted woman and any man would be lucky to have you as a partner. I am also glad we connected and still looking forward to more with you.
Talk to you soon.
As each day passes, I feel our connection is growing stronger.I have not felt this way in a very long time! I am excited to wake up each day to write and read an email from you. I have to tell you that I have prayed to God each day to give me the strength to face each day ever since I lost my wife. They say time heals all pain,and i must say, i struggled to carry on, day after day , till days turned to months and into years.Trying to moved on as i buried my self in to work and gym.I went to the Bahamas with my son and While i was there, I decided it was time to start living again. My parents were married 46 years before my father passed on. My mother never re-married, yet, I never realized how lonely she must have been. She stayed active volunteering and spending time with friends but it is never the same as having a life partner. That is part of the reason I tried match .com. You were the first person i emailed and I feel very lucky that we made a connection.
There is so much I want to tell you, a lot has been running through my head lately, but i am having trouble putting my thoughts into words so you will have to bear with me through this. Nothing can be compared to this feeling of filling up somebody's life. The anticipation while awaiting an email from you. Your sweet lovely emails keep me awake even when i am exhausted to death, because i wouldn't want to miss a thing.You brighten my day and now gradually giving me new strength to carry on. Life has been really tough for me ever since i lost my wife of 29 years.I fought through life everyday to be a better person for my son,myself and my partner to be, as well.Ever since we met online, you have revoked some deep emotions and feelings i've had kept buried inside of me for so long. Feelings i never knew existed anymore. But above all, you showed interest in me, compassion and honesty.I will forever be grateful as i never knew thought i would be this happy again in this life time,and you know what?, it is the greatest feeling in the world to be content with someone who makes you happy.I would want to say that I am very, very content with you and you alone. You have a great heart and i can tell that you are a great person too.
At a point in my life i thought i was going to grow old alone, but you have given me new hope. I promise not to disappoint you and i really cannot wait to meet with you so we can go pass this stage of emailing back and forth.
Well let me not bore you with a long email again.
Have a great day and know that you are very much in my thoughts.
Oh and i have attached picture of what i have worked on.
Morning babe You have captivated my interest. My days seem brighter and colors seem brighter ever since you came into my life. I feel a burst of energy throughout the day knowing there is someone out there that cares and thinks about me. You are a beautiful soul and people like you are very rare. I am grateful to have come across you. It is very interesting to be engaged in mid-life dating and starting "afresh." There is great excitement in knowing who you are and engaging another with the same experience/aptitude in life. I hope you are not expecting me to be perfect - of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder...in which case I pray that you would like me when we meet in person.
I am a very calm, peaceful, balanced and compassionate man, and when i say this i am not being narcissistic. When I am in a relationship, I am "all in. " I know that everyone our age has past relationship scars (Heart, mind & soul). I can truthfully say that mine are simply part of my strength and character, but not a liability or deficiency.
I love VERY deeply and want to make my best friend my everything. I do not have many friends, I am from a very small family and a very family oriented person. So what I am telling you is that, if we have an emotional connection - you become a significant part of all of me...my family, friends and work family. I promise you, that if that connection is there - you automatically have met my family...that is who I am and who my family is - we are a very playful, sarcastic with lots of laughter kind of family. I have no fears or regrets, nor do I harbor ill will towards anyone. Since we are clearly in pursuit of having a love affair, I will be candid about my self as i am an open book. With that being said, I received a very good news from the meeting i went to on Wednesday. I applied for a government project/Contract in Cape Town South Africa a couple of months ago ( 2 and half months ) to be precise, and i was informed at the meeting that my company has been shortlisted for the said project. Out of 17 companies that were bidding for this project, My company was among the top four that have been shortlisted and they will review all of the selected four companies and the winner will be announced tomorrow morning.Please put me in your prayers because i have really invested a lot in that contract as i have struggled to get these types of government contracts since i moved here. Have a great day darling.
Lots of Hugs.
How was your night ? I Hope you slept well ? Sorry about last night. I was not feeling too good. Had a terrible headache but took some Aspirin and slept off when i was meant to call you back. Hopefully we can speak today? I have just received a call followed by a letter of appointment from the ministry of Housing and development in South Africa informing me that i have been approved and appointed to develop and construct a government school and hospital in the Milnerton area of Cape Town South Africa. It is a 8 figure contract, of which includes the cost to design and build the said project.The contract award ceremony will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Center (CTICC) on Monday morning the 10th of April 2017 . This means i have to travel to South Africa tonight to arrive there tomorrow evening as it is about a 21 hour flight from here in order to make it there on time for the award ceremony. This news came as a big shock to me as i was not expecting to win the contract nor to have to travel this urgent. I already have an appointment with my bank this morning regarding some investments,Once i am done with my bank,i will have to go shop for some of the items that i will need for this trip. I will also need some summer clothes as they seem to be in summer over there at the moment.I also need to go get all the tools that i will be working with over there ready to be shipped over to South Africa. I also need a good suit for the contract award ceremony which will be attended by some important personnel from the government, politicians, NGO's and other Government bodies on Monday morning. I am really happy to be awarded this contract as i have struggled in getting contracts and tenders for my company since i relocated here.This is the first time that i will be working on a project in South Africa.
With this latest development,I am very sorry to inform you that i may not be able to see you in person before my departure as i have to be in South Africa ASAP to sign the acceptance letter and also to meet up with the minister of housing and development. I would like us to keep in touch by email and over the phone just as we have done for the past couple of days till i return. I will be traveling with my laptop so i will send you mail on a daily basis. My number will be roaming but I will buy a South African sim card when i arrive there and we will be able to talk on the phone as well.I will be staying for two weeks to sign the acceptance letter and also to kick start the project before returning. I am deeply sorry about my sudden departure,I promise to make it up to you when i get back.I will arrive back home in the morning of the 24th of April, If i am not jet legged, We should be able to meet that very day or the day after.I will keep you posted about that. I promise to make it up to you. Please text or call me when you get this email. I hope you are not mad at me?
Talk to you soon. Big Hug.
