REPORT N1 (added on November, 19, 2014)
Stephanie (UAE)

Good day,
Trust you are well. His profile that he posted on meetup.com is fake. My best guess is that the person is Nigerian based on his use of language, grammar, punctuation and African Slang ( I know this as I am African).
He contacted me on email via meetup. He said he's single - lost wife and child in car accident; is an Engineer currently on project in Poland; is 45, living in Dubai Marina and from Manchester UK.
Early on I realised something is amiss as he didn't want to exchange messages on what's app claiming that he tried to download the app and that it keeps crashing/ and also didn't want to speak on phone as he wanted to get to know me better first via email;
He ended two of his messages with the name Joseph( and after claimed it's his middle name);
his use of the English language is not same as what a UK person uses;
his emails showed he copies and pasted a lot,
All of a sudden he professed he loves me so much and keep on telling me how much - and in his baby etc- that really exposed him for me as he has never met me, or spoken to me in person. He increased his expression of love right before the email he sent asking for money.
In the yahoo messenger chat he didn't know the abbreviation UAE and that the area he claims to live in., the Marina, is actually in the UAE, the part I was waiting for and expected finally came - where he asked for money. He claimed he was fined by government for using illegal workers which he didn't know was illegal- they got injured on project site and he has to pay their hospital bills: and that he's short of 2400 Usd And that he would pay me back with interest.
I replied to him that I'm no longer interested and that he's not the right person for me. I didn't indicate to him that I know he's a scammer so to allow for the authorities to catch him.
I am a trained ex- Intelligence operative (ex military) and lucky for me so and could recognise early that he's a scammer. I never revealed this info to him, so he didn't know about my past work experience and background.
I am expressing the hope though that he hasn't already conned some of the female members of meetup.com and possibly other sites, out of money.
I dis report his email address to the relevant international authorities - the FBI: as he is using actual photos from people unknowingly, and my take is that he will be using mine as well- unfortunately I did send him two early on in our email exchange before I realised what he is.
Thank you for your time
