This scammer started off very sweet with emails from the site, well wishes & blessings of the season as it was around Christmas time. After a few very thoughtful & well worded messages from okcupid msg I have my phone number & email address. We continued to talk on the phone & write to one another. My intentions were clearly stated on the profile about my desire to find a husband. As we continued to correspond he opened about his family. He was divorced, the only child of his parents were divorced years ago due to infidelity & he did not speak with his mother. He claimed to be an engineer who worked on oil rigs. First red flag. Although he was less than 1/2 hour drive away he choose not to met with me before departing on a contract job aboard a ship. We did not FaceTime or Skype or text as he said his phone did not have a text plan. He called before he left & I had a friend listen to his voice as he claimed to be Italian born. His accent was not Italian or Turkish his other cultural heritage. He claimed to be falling in love with me just before he left in his work trip. He called me twice a day & was always very sweet in the phone & would spend an hour speaking with me. I always made him call as it was long distance & I told him I don't chase men. One week after leaving his devotion heightened and he would msg me in yahoo. We had very lengthy conversations & again told me how in love he was. I didn't completely believe this but it was nice to hear. On the scam swindle day he claimed to be in you me & needed my help as a package was in turkey for him. It was suppose to be gold jewellery from his other business but contains $ & drugs. He needed help & wanted me to send money to some lawyer in turkey to help him get this package through customs. I was not to talk about it with anyone as he claimed to have been in trouble before & was concerned that he would be arrested by FBI in USA when he returned. He got very upset & accused me of not caring for refusing to help him. He begged for help. Kept calling & leaving msg that if I didn't help he was ending the cyber relationship cuz I was not there for him when he needed me the most. He claimed to not be able to access his bank account in the UK or have one in the USA. He only had 3000lbs so roughly $10,000 on his account. He was looking for a big score from me.
He never had a web cam but wanted to see me & asked me to perform sexual acts for him. I totally refused. This is also a way to blackmail a person later with a recoding of the session. His iPhone was left at home which was a personal one but he had his work Nokia one with him that had no camera but from the ship could send me pictures from the computer room??? That was strange as it was a common area. He would call & look at pictures of me & want to get satisfied while speaking on the phone. All these tactics were to get close to me but I asked a friend about most of the things that seemed strange. When I refused repeatedly to send money & told him this was the craziest thing I heard of to do for do done I had never met in person, he got very upset & seemed to cry. Be careful this guy was good & was back online with Okcupid the next day. I reported the user. I also used Tineye to verify the pics he sent me. They all came back ok but that still does not mean that I was not still sceptical. This guy look beautiful in his pics. Bright blues eyes & dark hair.

He wrote nicely until the money went! He became angry and cheeky! Supposedly, he is a contractor who has to deal with oil! Highest caution!
