REPORT N1 (added on April, 1, 2016)
Jennifer (USA)

I contacted him first via eHarmony.
Many inconsistencies. Spelled his sister's name two different ways (Elisabeth and Elizabeth), would ask me the same question more than once w/in a 2-3 day window, said he was an independent contractor for the Department of Defense and working on a new contract in NYC at ADT, said his parents both died, but didn't say how, claimed to be a God fearing man/Christian, text msgs would vary in structure - sometimes good English, other times, many misspellings or wrong use of the word, said he spent time in Palo Alto, CA, but timeline didn't line up, never married and no kids (on his eHarmony profile). Uncle to 1 nephew, Francis. After 2 days, was calling me dear, then baby and then talking about going on a cruise together. He said he missed me w/o ever meeting me in person.
He seemed like he was financially independent. Mentioned in a note that he would take me to Italy (a dream of mine) when we ARE together (after never meeting me).
Then I got an email from eHarmony saying that they removed his profile.

Scam Letters

Romance scam letter(s) from Howard Fredrick to Jennifer (USA)
Hello Jen..

Thanks for giving me your email address, i believe communication by email is going to help us communicate effectively to know us more.
Yes, I agree. I think that's what frustrated me the first time around with eHarmony. You practically give your life story and then it takes so long to make contact with anyone. So, this time, I decided that if I'm interested in talking to someone, that I will just ask them to fast track. I'm glad it worked in our case.

Please do not hesitate to ask me anything that you wish to know about me.
Well, this is easy since I don't know you yet. Let's see, here's a few for now:
1) Where did you grow up?
2) How many ppl in your family? What is your birth order? (I am the oldest of 4 children)
3) Where did you go to college?
4) What do you do for work? Do you like your job?
5) Is your first name Howard or Fredrick?

let me ask you, where are you from? How would you summarize your life?
I grew up in Lake George, N
