REPORT N2 (added on October, 13, 2016)
Briana (USA)

A person claiming to be a white man age 53 calling himself Dan and stating that he lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida contacted me on E-harmony. He posted two pictures on EH, the main one he sends to me via text later. We went through the EH communication process and he asked me for a personal e-mail address. Being cautious, I created a new e-mail address and gave it to him. He contacted me at this email address telling me his name was Daniel Bernhardt and that he was an American born in Utah. He said he was of Dutch ancestry and he spent a lot of his life in Copenhagen Denmark where he had relatives. He said he was widowed seven years ago and that he had a daughter who lived in California. We communicated via email and he asked me for my telephone number and to possibly meet. I gave him my cell phone number and he texted me several days later. The caller ID identified the call as the name he had given me. We texted each other for a few more days and sent each other pictures, and then he called me. He said he was an Architect/Interior Designer and that he had to leave suddenly to go to Illinois as he was trying to get a contract. We continued to talk, text and email and he told me he now had to go to New York because he got the contract but he was trying to stay on budget. He then told me he had fallen in love with me but he had to go to Dubai to buy his product to keep in budget. We continued to communicate and he said he had ordered his product but now he was stuck in Dubai because the Dubai government had added a new fee that was $18k. He began to elude that he was having difficulties with funds and that the government was holding his order even though he had already made a huge down payment. He professed his love for me and then the day I was preparing to go on vacation he asked me if I could help him with cash for the $18K fee. He called me several times asking me if I could help with cash. I did not and he did not contact me for a few days. While on vacation he finally contacted me via text claiming that I had abandoned him and that someone else gave him the cash he needed and he was now in Florida but going back to New York. I was not in Florida now. He called me again after I returned to Florida from vacation professing his love but then never called back again until three weeks later when he contacted me saying he was in trouble again. Supposedly now this other woman was demanding he repay her the funds she supposedly gave him. I hung up, he called back, we talked and then he finally hung up on me in the middle of my sentence. I have not heard back from him again. I contacted EH and they confirmed that they have removed his profile for security reasons. I searched the Internet with the picture he had sent to me via text message and found the same picture attached to a LinkedIn profile for a person named Michael Klinsmann (aka Michael Bergmann) which led me to this site and to other aliases and a picture of the same person as in the picture I have, and who I was led to believe is Daniel Bernhardt. We never met although I did ask to do so several times. This scam took place over a four month period. He asked for cash several times verbally and also in text messages.
