REPORT N1 (added on October, 5, 2015)
Lora (USA)

A German sounding man matched me on Tinder saying he was in Richmond, CA and on Tinder, it gives you the miles away the actual phone is and it did say 43 miles which made Richmond seem about right. He contacted me through the IM on Tinder and We had conversation on Tinder for several days then he asked for my yahoo messenger name and email address. I was new to online dating so suspected nothing out of the ordinary. As we started to get to know each other, I knew Tinder was connected to FaceBook so I went to his profile on FB and saw that he hadn't been on there for about 2 years and that there were only pictures on it. He had no friends and was not active. In order to join Tinder, you have to have a FB page. He was very amorous and started sounding very attracted to me very quickly. I told him I wanted to meet in person which he kept saying he did too but it never happened. I said I didn't want a long distance relationship and he kept writing and calling on the phone and kept it going. I decided to do a background check on him. Found out everything I could from that and it looked clean. With further investigation, I found that the height and eye color were different than he told me so I started really being suspicious. Also, he said his mother was still alive and was age 93 yet I found an obit and a death cert on her. I didn't mention this to him cuz now I wanted to see how far he would take this. He also said his wife died and I found no marriage cert for him/her, nor a death cert. But did find a marriage cert for him with another woman (still married). He also said he had a daughter who I could find no birth cert for. With these facts, I knew he was eventually going to ask me for money, but hoped not cuz he was masterful at wooing me and I rather liked him. He did his job very well. On the background check, it of course gave his address, phone number, driver's license info, mortgage info, fishing license info, job info, car registration info and a whole lot of other info. So all along the way, I would mention things like...
