Romance scam letter(s) from Henry Gates to Mary (USA)
Letter 1

Hello My Dearest How are you doing today, well babe this was exactly the same email you sent me as the last time , words for words , did you copy and to repaste it to me because you think i didn't read through it the last time you sent it? I have good news to share with you but i will keep it until i get a formal written notification. I came up with these, i don't know whether to call it a poem or something else. Read and tell me what you think! Am really sorry to hear about your past relationship and everything that happened and i must say you've got a heart and actually did the best that you could and i understand why you being skeptical based on your past, but i want you to know we've all got a past my dear with our emotional lives one way or the other and that shouldn't stop us from doing what makes up happy and falling in love again.. When you find a dream inside your heart, don't let it go. For dreams are the tiny seeds from which beautiful Tomorrow Grows. A man's dreams are index to his greatness. In life love is never planned nor does it happen for a reason. But when love is real, It becomes your plan for life and your reason for living. Don’t think how many moments in your life, just think how much life is there in a moment. Life gives answer in 3 ways. It says Yes & gives u what u want, it says no and gives u something better, it says wait and gives u the Best!. When time comes for u to give ur heart to someone, make sure u select someone who will never break ur heart, because broken hearts have no spare parts. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is war; love is a growing up. So tell me, what do you think.... xoxoxoxoxo Hugs

I believe that we only have this one life, it is not a dress rehearsal. I stand strong on individuality yet as a partner, I believe in lifting each other in our passion for this one life we have is the best gift that was given to us by God. I feel in a relationship, there should be support and mutual understandings for compromises. I don’t think there is room for control, manipulation, anger and fear of lack of communication. I’m a free bird! With a clear conscience. There is no ghosts or baggage in my closet. I speak my truth. I say what I mean without being mean. Stuff happens, real life stuff, I do as best as I could with accepting things I can not change. I’m not in charge and the only thing that I can change is me. I have a loving honest spirit that encourages me and the people around me. I don’t hang out with losers. Most of my friends are professionals or retired professionals. I don’t drink alcohol or take drugs. I like the finer things in life on a down to earth level. I’m a realist with conservative thinking. I’m an artist in many ways. I love to decorate, I make jewelry, paint and also I teach skincare and makeup applications. I like holidays and getting together with friends and family. When I’m on a mission/passion, I do the best I can with all my heart and soul. I don’t tolerate drama! Irresponsible people! ...... I have been with 1 man for the past 16 years. I’ve grown emotionally and spiritually in dealing with who I am and my wants and needs with clear, as healthy as I can, boundaries. He was a trouble person who sucked the life out of me. Insecure, manipulative and a lier. There were many breakups and finally in 2014 I had to let go of him totally. I will never be treated like he treated me again! We remained friends after a period of no contact. I did take care of him the last 6 months of his life. Because he had no one. He passed away in April of this year. My compassion was strong enough to know that I treated him the way I would like to be treated and not want for anyone to die alone. He has 2 sons. One of which I took care of like a mother since he was 6 years old. Unconditional! The other son doesn’t stay in touch with me, I think it’s because his wife dreams up scenarios and won’t deal with communicating. Unfortunately what she thinks is what she believes. It’s sad ?? The bottom line is, I’m way out of practice in the love department. I’ve been hurt but I have experience good strong healing abilities. .....this was a lot to say. I would say more face to face. We will talk later
Hugs MJ

Hello Dear, How did your day go and hope it was splendid, mine was okay, really could not do much though. I was always thinking about you and having thoughts on about what I am about to say tonight LOLL, Well what I’m about to say to you is important for both of us. Knowing and realising there is still a lot to unfold, I’m willing to go forward if you are. Something shifted in me today, not sure what or why, but it did. I’m Surrendering my HEART to you. I’m going to trust, that what is happening between us, is of GOD. I’m going to try to put all my fears aside and go with what my heart has been telling me. I take your Heart in my Hands with all the gentleness, kindness and love that I can possibly hold in my Soul I ask you to do the same. I realise how crazy this may seem to both of us. But, I do believe in Miracles and work in the Metaphysical World. So, why couldn’t this be happening? I have prayed and ask God to bring me someone that I may find peace and happiness with. Why shouldn’t it be you? We both have been through a lot of heartache; its time for our Blessing. I will share my prayer that I prayed this morning. I asked that God Bless our Union together, that it be filled with Love, Peace and Happiness and that we would be bless with a Long Life together with Good Health and financial security. I asked that our kids be blessed with our Union, that we would be the best parents to them and provide all the Love and support that they will need to grow into healthy adults. I asked that our family be Blessed. I asked that our extended family and friends be Blessed with our Union and that all that our life together will touch will know the presence of GOD is Love. Please I don’t want you to be scared. I know we just got to know each other and we probably still need some more time to know ourselves better but I believe things happen for a reason. I really do feel so much for you in this short period of exchanging mails, I know I might be out of place for me to say all this to you but I can no longer hold back my feelings for you. I do not believe in shying away from the truth so I decided to have some courage today in letting you know how I actually feel about you. I want you to know that I will deactivate my account on the site, because I want to concentrate on getting to know you, I cannot communicate with more than one woman at the same time, please don’t get me wrong am not trying to impose it on you that we must have something, i just want to have my attention on you and see where it leads us... Please stop me now!!! If you don’t think this is at all a possibility. I’m going to trust, this moment in time and my Heart is now in your hands. I miss you and haven’t even touched you and I feel this way already, I wonder what it is going to feel like when we meet!!! Thoughts,

Omgosh I don’t know how I missed this email. Maybe because we started texting...
There is so much I’d like to talk to you about. Texting takes too long
I’m very happy to know you so far.
Letter 5

Hi dear,

How are you doing today?,and am really sorry about the late reply to you as i was away on a work seminar, and thank you for the number i'll text you later today ok. I was elated to hear back from you as i was scared i had said too much about myself just on first impulse. But i am also glad you understood the fact that i am open minded and wanted you to grasp all about me as i do not like keeping any stones unturned when it comes to knowing someone. If we are both open and honest about ourselves i know we really wont have any problems with regards to understanding our feelings towards one another. I have come to understand that the fact that we fail in our relationship its only a yardstick for us to learn from our mistakes and make the best out of whatever we find again, I’m i right or wrong??.

With regards to letting the past stay where it belongs and admitting the fact that past experiences is a good teacher and only occurs to make us wiser and stronger to face the challenges of the future. It's true they say good things come to those who wait. The fact that you speak from your heart makes me know you are one woman with a beautiful heart. They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but for me its not all about looks but one who has a big heart and beautiful from within. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to get to know you, i am glad to express my profound love and gratitude if this leads to a relationship that would end in both of us sharing our lives together. Forgive my modesty, but from my point of view my strongest features of character are intelligence, kindness, warm heart, good sense Of humor, optimism and desire to achieve goals, these and other characteristics i sense in you. I promise to create time for you as i always look forward to hearing from you, communication enhances good relationship as they say and if we do share everything in earnest then i guess ours will blossom eventually. Meanwhile enjoy the rest of your day whilst hoping to hear from you again. Mind sending me recent pictures of you, Lots of love and warm hugs dearie. Sincerely Yours

Hey there Brad, 2 very busy days for me. Yesterday my girlfriend Linda’s husband had hip replacement. So I spent most of the day with her. Girlfriend support is important. After his last surgery, (on his neck) he had a stroke so their was much concern about this one. In conclusion, he did well. We were so relieved. Today was a cleaning day ?? and I invited Linda to my home for dinner. He husband should be home from the hospital tomorrow. My interests and similar interests are definitely spending time by the water. I lived by the ocean for over 25 years. Suntanning ?? Anything with my partner is romantic. My spirit is playful as well. I love gardening. Relaxing and reading. The last 3 years, I’m blessed with a hummingbird that has a nest in my backyard patio. She lays 2 eggs and I enjoy watching these incredible baby birds grow and spread there wings to their next new journey. I find it very exciting. I’ve been told I have an accent. NYC/Long Island. I especially hear it when I go visit family. I am retired and I don’t work but I do stay busy! I belong to a couple of community groups so there is never a dull moment. My favorite flower is white roses. Last year I went on a cruise to Mexico and 3 1/2 weeks in Italy. 2 very wonderful trips with my girlfriend Sonja. I’m sure eventually you will meet my friends. My dislikes are exactly the same as yours!
We have this one incredible life. I believe that everyone has the God given right follow their own dreams. This is not a dress rehearsal. It’s the real thing. Experiences are endless and you will never see me hold you down from your dreams and passions. I feel the same goes for me too. BTW the Caribbean is absolutely gorgeous. Not to put a cabosh on anything...but I have a ankle/foot surgery coming up sometime late September/October.
Metatarsal fusion. Not fun. ?? I do love walking but right now it’s tough. I’d like to give you my phone number. 775-750-5394 I hope your day was, is blessed beyond your wildest dreams! Kindly thinking of you, MJ

Hi , How was your day today. It was nice reading your email again, I believe in one day at a time. Thanks for the compliment, you sound interesting and i like your sense of humor. I am so serious in getting to know you better and talk more, I thought it would be helpful if I shared what some of my interests are and what some of my passions are and also what my likes and dislikes are. This will give you an idea about the man you are communicating with, and no my dear i don't use facebook anymore

Interests: I tend to have a variety of interests, such as the following: I enjoy the outdoors. I love spending time by the water (lakes and oceans) as the water grounds me and provides me with inner peace. I too enjoy a nice sunset especially by the water (romantic). I enjoy walking, swimming, anything with outdoors involvement and playing like a kid when am with my partner. A swing is always lots of fun especially if someone is pushing you. I have a playful spirit. I enjoy a good movie, all types of music, reading, some sports, and different types of foods. I am open to trying new things. The bottom line is I am active and have a tremendous amount of energy to expend.

Passions: I have a few passions in my life and I would have to say that I am passionate about being a good father, about my career, about developing relationships (in general), and I really look forward to being passionate and having a passionate intimate relationship someday. I tend to be passionate about all things that are attached to the heart, my heart.

Likes: I like many things as I am open minded and flexible person. Generally, I like everything providing that there is no dislikes of mine infringing on the likes. Some of my favorite food (restaurants) consists of Chinese, Mexican, Italian with Jamaican sauce and rice being my favorite. I love red liquorice and my favorite flowers are carnations. I do enjoy traveling and thanks to my job. I would like to see castles close up some day and stay in a beautiful hotel close to the sea. I am thinking about a holiday over at the Caribbean. Not sure where I would like to go for now...

Dislikes: There is not a whole lot that I dislike, however; the things that I do dislike seem to be based on values and character, There are certain things that I have no interest in, however; these are the things that I clearly dislike or choose not to tolerate are: disrespect, unfaithfulness, dishonesty, lying, cheating, mean spitefulness, being judgmental, callousness, harsh words, hurtful acts, untrustworthy people, displaced anger, unfairness, injustice, selfishness, being inconsiderate, blaming, not taking responsibility, self-contentedness, rigidity and anything else that can cause damage or be damaging to another human being.

Let me see, what else can I share about me? I have a strong work ethic and I never give anything less than my absolute best. I would love to hear from you and if there is anything else you would love to know or share about what i have just explained, do not hold back as am glad we are corresponding.

You are in my thoughts

Hi How are you doing today, Nice hearing from you again,and sorry this is coming late. Was busy with a lot of work. Well let me tell you more about myself. I’m God fearing {just so you know i am not religious so you don't feel if your not in the same fate with me its a problem NO you have a right to your own beliefs and views},straight forward, honest, caring, loving, trustworthy and understanding man that loves to be around loved ones. Have a son Jeff, he's 10 years, I am originally from Denmark and I have got a mixed accent been that I have lived in so many countries., i’m a package Builder and I handle design and construction of a building. Often these services, in addition, include acquisition of land and financing of the project. Usually show prospective clients prototypes of similar buildings completed by previous owners. I employ my own staff of architects and engineers, as well as construction personnel. I also bid for contracts and this makes me travel around the world. My son Jeff lives with his mom, i do get to miss him a lot but there are reasons for everything. Divorced for the past 4 years, ever since i have never trusted any woman or have anything to do with one and don't want to go into any relationship because of what happened as it took me over 3 years to get over the shock. But now i have gone past that and ready to love and live life with someone special. My relationship with God is strong because I believe and have faith in him, I love watching all kinds of movies most especially action thriller, romance, comedy. I listen to (R&B, country music, classical and pop). I try not to look at the outside beauty of a woman but into the beauty installed in her which is the " heart" because I need a woman with a good heart not just beauty, I like a woman that dress to be comfortable, I like spicy food and sea-food, I would love to receive and show care with affection to my loved one. Hope I have not spoken too much LOL, just pouring my heart out as it is. Hope to hear from you and lets see how it goes.
Letter 10

Hi Brad I was pleasantly surprised to hear from such a handsome man today. I’m new at this pof. It would be a lot better meeting you from an event or run into each other accidentally ... looked in each other’s eye and knew from the start that there is something ??... But these days, it’s not easy to know who’s looking, interested, married or Available! It’s just plain awkward lol ?? I’m originally from Long Island, NY. Moved to Reno 18 years ago and stayed. I own my home in Fernely, been there 11 years and love the wide open spaces and quiet, no drama life style. It would be nice to get to know you. I’m not sure what else to say right now ???? Hope to hear from you too
