Scam REPORT(S)

REPORT N1 (added on October, 28, 2016)
Kelly (USA)

Very convincing, copy of contract for 17.4 m, flight intinary, gave me access to a bank account - supposedly from Amsterdam (is really just a website with server in South Africa), to transfer money from his acct to mine to purchase phones. Sent copies of pictures from the supposed site project. Very romantic and alluring. Called me crying saying he had been stabbed and robbed, his engineer in critical condition. I would up sending him money for attny fees, hotels, flights, you name it. I thought I had done my research but... even the photo he provided on match is not the same photo here. I am just sick to my stomach over the whole thing.
REPORT N2 (added on April, 12, 2017)
Mary (Canada)

I received exactly the same emails sent by Freddie Adams to Debra. The sender found me on match and started emailing from his personal email alexbecker109@gmail.com and sent some photos.
REPORT N3 (added on June, 2, 2017)
Terra (Canada)

This man initiated first contact on Match. He immediately wanted to communicate via email. He requested I contact him at stefanhans41@gmail.com so he could send me additional photos. He sent me additional photos and a letter. I was suspicious, as he mentioned he was a widower and I had just been contacted by another widower. So I checked this site and found identical photos under different aliases.
REPORT N4 (added on June, 22, 2017)
Irma (Canada)

Very convincing....widower, moved to my city 3 years ago from Netherlands, son studying medicine in England. Alex claimed to be an architect, too busy to meet till his project was done. Day of date, he suddenly had to get on a plane to CapeTown to receive a massive tender. Forgot that smart women would notice lack of media coverage given how big the contract ceremony was to be. Command of English got spottier in writing. Calls stopped once I started asking pointed questions. Still waiting for the money request to come. Other profile handle was BKTL.
REPORT N5 (added on October, 30, 2018)
Cate (Canada)

I was contact by Rick Simon on Match.com almost 2 weeks ago. He emailed me on the site and then asked me to switch to emailing his personal account where he promised to share more photos and all his information with me. I agreed to email him and i indicated that i thought it was a bit odd so he better follow up with the information and photos as promised. He did and then proceeded to email me every day. Asked for my phone number and we have been emailing and and chatting since Oct 15. The day before we were to meet he all of a sudden had to leave the country. The emails listed here are all very similar to what i have received.
REPORT N6 (added on January, 30, 2019)
Skimmy (USA)


Initiation was via Coffee Meets Bagel dating app.
Length of correspondence: May 2017 - Jan 2019.
Money was requested via wire. Initially $6k then larger amounts.
3 people received wires: Nikky Thompson, Destiny Michelle, Jennifer Duru.
Scammer ceased all contact 2 weeks ago after last wire sent to him.

Morning :)

I must say, i am really enjoying this, feeling like a teen again. Thank you so much and i really appreciate it.

I feel like you are a generous person with a good heart.I love it , it says a lot about your personality and believe me when i say this, you deserve all the good and happiness coming your way, that is the law of Karma.

I can tell we are both good writers and we both express ourselves so freely via email. I think it's a good thing. Don't you think so? I am sure every single second invested in the foundation of a relationship is always an addition to the success of it. So i do not see it as a waste writing each other and learning more about each other. Connecting in real time would be the best step forward, so if you could give me your number so we can put a voice behind the emails that would be a great step forward and Oh and please do let me know the best times to call you :)

I will quickly write a bit more about myself now as I hav

Hi Cathy

Thank you so much for emailing me, I am really happy you wrote me and I truly appreciate it.

I'm in search of my soul mate, lover, and life companion. I unfortunately became widowed about 4 years ago. I am in the construction field and have been doing it for over 2 decades. I was born and raised in Rotterdam, where my father is from but we moved to London when I was 20 as my mother is from there. I moved here permanently 3 years ago as i fell in love with it and figured it would be great for me to start afresh in a new city. I had been here a couple times on business 2 years prior to that decision.

I bought a beautiful home in Forest Hill - beautiful peaceful area and set
