Report N1 (added on May, 19, 2016)
I met this scammer on UK website MatureDating. He was meant to come to spend Christmas with me but he told me that there had been a huge accident the day before he was due to travel and he had to pay compensation to his workers for medical treatment and various legal fees and needed funds to cover this as well as living expenses and funds for equipment and wages to be able to finish his contract in Lagos.
He supposedly was an American of Spanish and Indian heritage, widowed with a teenaged daughter and was from San Diego.
His written English was good, but there were slips that I became suspicious of after listening to a BBC Radio 4 Women's Hour programmes about romance scams in late 2015 and then I began to investigate as I had not been aware of romance scams prior to listening to the programme? I subsequently found him and it was only after confronting him that he actually called me and his accent definitely wasn't American. I was finally able to cut off contact with him earlier this year and reported him to Western Union and Moneygram, the Nigerian Police Authorities, Viber, Skype, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Facebook, Tagged and am working my way through a list of other authorities to report him to.
This scammer has been active on the following websites recently He uses SunRainbowStar on Catholic Dating in River Park Illinois and on IDating4You in Oak Park, Illinois On LinkedIn he was using Paul Hernandez, Phandez Oil Contracting, Independent Oil and Gas Contractor. He asked me to send money to his workers as being a US national he couldn't received more than 3 remittances under Nigerian law.
He uses Skype, Viber and WhatsApp using US tel.
