REPORT N1 (added on November, 12, 2015)
Kerry (New Zealand)

I was approached by a Christo Roberts when I first went onto Plenty of Fish dating site.
I had a free membership at POF and Christo sent me his photo around 1 October 2015 along with a paragraph indicating interest in me. He had a nice photo, a very complete profile and he had also completed the personality and chemistry profiles. I didn't respond straight away, it was about a week later. He immediately showed interest and within a few days were emailing away from POF (at his suggestion) and talking on the phone. He used what he described as being an American roaming number as it made it easier for his friends and daughters to contact him. He had listed his residence as being Cambridge a small town in the North Island of New Zealand. I live in Auckland, New Zealand, about 1.5 hours drive away.
We corresponded via email and phone calls from 10 October until today 28 October 2015, when I told him I knew I was being scammed.
After reading some of the stories on the malescammers.com website, Christo's back story is very stereotypical. He was an Architect/Engineer and had been working in New Zealand for six months. He was new onto POF but had been on match.com and got scammed for $45,000 when he first arrived here, by what he said was a New Zealand women who made up a story about her mother needing a kidney operation. He later told me that he had US$175,000 hacked by the Chinese from his bank account and was negotiating with his bank to get it back, but it was taking time. Within days he convinced me to close down my POF profile and communicate only with him. I was a bit smitten as he was very compelling and had a Italian or European accent. He explained that his father was Italian and that despite being brought up in the US, he had a strong accent. He had 2 daughters - Margaret (Margie or Maggie) aged 21 and Jane aged 15. They were being brought up by his sister-in-law as his wife had died after a failed operation for breast cancer. He owned a house in La Verna, California and had come to New Zealand to look at changing his life and finding his life partner. He believed he had found it with me. I connected with him on Facebook. His account was only opened in September and the second time I looked at his profile, I noticed that 3 photos had disappeared as had a news feed item.
A week passed and then he told me he had to go to Singapore to present a proposal for a design and project management contract, which if he got it would enable him to retire. He was presenting his designs for a gas station to be constructed at Holland Village, Singapore. Around this time, I got an email from his daughter Margaret (he called her Margie sometimes and she referred to herself as being Maggie).
He won his contract after about three days of presenting, defending his designs, etc., and he emailed me a Certificate of Award in the name of Christopher L. Roberts for Six Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Dollars. I checked, and the full legal name of organisation awarding the contract is not registered with the Malaysian Companies Office.
But from the awarding of the certificate, the problems started. Christo needed to pay a lawyer to witness the contract and they wanted U$45,000. He told me he paid them every cent he had with him $11,000 and then he started telling me how friends and family were kicking in with some money - he was phoning the States madly trying to get anyone and everyone to put in money. He even asked me to send him money to buy food. Eventually he was $6,500 short and kept asking me for money so I decided to scam him back. I told him I had no money until I got paid on the 25th. I played cat and mouse games with him for a few days, as he had to have the money to the lawyer by 28 October or he would lose the contract and the deposit he had already paid. The amount got smaller and went to $1,500 (he managed to get $5,000 from somewhere at the last minute, but they had taken his passport). I got another email from his daughter Maggie which was addressed to "Dear Mom" asking me why I was being so unkind to her father. Eventually I told him to send me bank account details and I would send him $1,500. He sent me bank account details for a bank in Singapore - The United Overseas Bank.
The person requesting the money was Christo L. Roberts. The person to receive the money in Singapore was: Yeo Kheng Wan.
I didn't send Christo Roberts any money, even though he was very compelling and I although I knew I was being scammed, I almost felt guilty. Tonight I sent him a letter telling him that I knew he had been scamming me and that I in turn had been scamming him back and that I hope I had caused him some stress. I told him I was going to try my best to shut down his Christo Roberts persona and that I had contacted the real Christopher Roberts in California and let him know that someone had stolen his identify, which I have done. Christopher L. Roberts lives with his wife Karen in the street that Christo Roberts has put down on his Facebook profile. Neither has a Facebook profile.
Upon receipt of my letter telling him that I knew he was a scammer, I received an email from Christo to the effect that giving someone all your love is never an assurance they'll love you back and that he's praying for me to find someone who will love me more than he does.
I am reporting this in the hope that someone else doesn't get scammed by Christo Roberts.
