REPORT N1 (added on February, 18, 2014)
Melissa (South Africa)

I was contacted through Twoo by 3 men who all appeared to be male scammers. They are Alexander Pappas (allegedly from Greece) Robert Joseph Burke (allegedly from Dallas Texas) Eric Smith (allegedly from Table View, South Africa)
Robert Burke was on Facebook and claimed to be the owner of a company in Dallas, Texas called Burke-Arch. He even had a website of the business. I was suspicious and searched the Internet. I eventually found a company called Hodges Arch. The exact same web site but the name and picture of the owner had been changed. As well as the address and telephone numbers. On phoning the number on Burke's site I got an automated service. On calling Hodges I was greeted by a receptionist. Burke's site is http://burke-arch.com/ and the site from which he mirrored his is www.hodgesusa.com.
I did a reverse trace on his number and found him to be in California. When I confronted him he disappeared. The FB page was gone BUT the web site is still there. At the same time Pappas also disappeared. On doing a reverse phone check he too was listed at the same address as Burke. I am assuming he was warned about me.
Then Eric Smith comes into the picture. Same MO, same bad language and grammar, same instant love!! A phone check revealed that he is in Redmond, Washington.
Eric Smith is still on the hook. I continue to play his game. He phones regularly and I get 2 emails per day. On checking all the words come from love poems on the Internet.
I have pictures of Burke and Smith. Both are widowers and have 1 child Burke never got to the point of asking for money. Smith has started preparing me for the money question.
