Romance scam letter(s) from Rick West to Barbara (Germany)
Letter 1

Hello Dearest Barbara, It thrills my heart to get a chance to email you,thanks very much for your email and the picture,you look beautiful.I will take this opportunity to tell you a little more about myself and I hope by the end of this email you will get to know much about me.In your reply I will also love to know much about you too.But to start it all I hope you are faring pretty well. As I already told you I am Rick Detlef West,I'm 55years of age,single,Divorced and lonely,smile:)I have descents of American and German in my blood so pardon me for my accent and constructions of words.I hope you will love my accent when we talk more someday soon,ha-ha,I'm shy of my accent but I hope you can cope with it.Its sad but I have to tell you,everyone in my family has passed away.I have lost my parents and my only brother.My brother and his family were involved in a gory motor accident that lead to his death.I have a height of 5'9'I'm well traveled and I have gained a lot of traveling experience due to my field of work.I have been in Brazil,Italy,France,Dubai,Saudi Arabia,Thailand,Malaysia and many more.As at now am on a mission at Okinawa japan a military naval base for a mission which in few months I'll retire and live my full life .I have my own house and several houses but sold some due to the nature of my work.My work involves so much traveling but anyways I look to buying a new home In Germany but waiting till I find that special someone before I take the step of buying.I have tried dating twice with the first one I had to break up with her because I caught her in bed with my neighbor and closest friend so we had to quit.With my second relationship,she was an alcoholic and always tried picking up arguments,quarrels with me.She left on her own and went back to her ex. I am a Christian,I don't smoke and I used to drink socially but I'm in the process of quitting.I don't drink alcohol or hard liquor lately.I only drink non-alcoholic wine,soft drinks and energy drinks.But I have no problem if you smoke or drink.I generally try to live a somewhat healthy lifestyle, exercising and some sort of jogging,3-4 times a week and eating healthy.I like American fast foods,Barbecue,Mexican,Italian and Thai dishes.My favorite color is Blue.I enjoy all kinds of music including Jazz,Gospel,Rock and Classical. For movies I choose romantic,adventure and comedy movies.I love cooking so much; it is now part and parcel of me since I have been lonely most of my life. I would also like to find a like-minded female where we can participate in activities together and encourage each other to pursue their interests as well.

I have several hobbies (and wish I could find more time to pursue those) I love hiking, climbing, camping and almost any out door activities like riding bike,savoring a fine non-alcoholic wine and some cheese,walking and exploring the oceans and beaches,staying in or going out to see movies, and would like someone to share that with,as well as she will share her interests with me.I love exploring new and intriguing possibilities--out door activities,SCUBA,sailing, rafting a river,reading books,traveling,cooking together,walking hand in hand. Also, I love to engage in lively and empowering conversations about love, romantic movies, sweet songs and life's thrilling experiences.I am generally an optimistic person with a sense of humor, fairly easy-going, and I don't think that I'm too critical about things, but I also believe that it takes two people contributing to a relationship to make it work. As I mentioned earlier, I like to do things with the other significant person in my life, but I also encourage her to go out and spend time with friends and pursue her own interests and hobbies as well. I believe that time spent apart helps keep things fresh in a relationship and makes the time we DO spend together even better. I'm not one who cheats in a relationship; one woman is enough trouble; I don't have the time or energy to juggle 2, 3, or 4 ladies at the same time,ha-ha. But I also want to be in a relationship where I can totally trust the other person and not dwell on how the relationship is NOT working.I want my lady to be honest ,loving ,caring ,family-oriented and committed to me.

I DO NOT expect a woman to be a servant to me, spending all her time working and cleaning; I believe there is give and take in a relationship, and I realize that at times it's more convenient for me to do laundry, cook,clean,mow the lawn and I have no problem doing that.I consider myself to be a fairly honest and truthful person and expect the same in return.I will not say I'm wealthy but I'm self-sufficient and financially sound(I can take care of my woman,buy her whatever she needs,spoil her and provide her the basic necessities of life,etc..) and don't expect someone to attempt to deceive me or "play" me.I can provide my lady with the 3 basic necessities of life(Food,Shelter and Clothing). Everybody makes mistakes and I usually give people the benefit of the doubt, but if the same pattern keeps emerging, it's Over. I do not want to meet someone who may think that they will take advantage of me or lie to me and cheat on me under false pretenses. Sorry if that sounds harsh, and I'm not accusing anybody of any wrongdoing, but I'm being upfront and honest about that, so you know where I stand from the beginning. With all due respect as well, I hope that you are upfront and honest with me, as well.I'm soft at heart,I like to open the door for my lady whiles we enter restaurant or when entering a car. I have no problem with your age and the distance at all,if you would still like to correspond, that's fine,we'll see how things go after we get to know each other. Well, I hope that this lets you know a little about me, and I hope I don't come across as being too cynical, harsh, or mean sounding. I will give anybody the benefit of the doubt (we're all human, we all make mistakes), but I also don't like being taken advantage of. I'm just asking you to keep it real and be honest from the beginning; that way, nobody is wasting their time or getting their feelings hurt. I also realize that at times two people are just too different to be in a relationship together; it doesn't mean that it's anybody's fault, it's just that they're too different to be compatible.Hope this finds you in good health and that things are well with you.I have attached some pictures of me,I hope you will like them.I will send some more photos as we get along.Take Care,God Bless you.Hugs !!! Rick..
