Report N1 (added on December, 7, 2016)
Michael Dario started emailing and texting me after responding to my profile on Ourtime.com. He made the first contact. We corresponded approximately 2 months (10/16-12/16). He claims to be a widower who lost his wife 6 years ago to cancer. He also claimed to have 1 daughter named Emily who is 18 and a freshman in college studying nursing. He says he grew up in Lawrenceville, GA but was born in Milan, Italy. He has a strong accent and can be difficult to understand. He requested my private email address after the first contact through Ourtime.com. I gave it to him. After 2 emails, he asked for my cell phone number stating he thought it would be better to communicate by text. He claims to be a Petroleum Engineer who is trying to secure a contract to clean up some oil spillage for Chevron. He asked (and received) twice for me to purchase a $100 Walmart prepaid Visa giftcard for his daughter. He claimed to be unable to get one at his Walmart. He had me take pictures of the front and back and sent through text. He also asked me if I could wire or transfer $2500 (initially $7500) to a chemical agent that he needed to pay in advance to securing the contract with Chevron. Thankfully, I did not comply with this request. He did provide the intended recipients name, bank name, acct# and routing# prior to me declining to send the money. Also, on this site is a man named Jamie Fidel who uses the alias Michael Dario (this could be the same guy that scammed me). He is currently using pictures stolen from a pastor in Naperville, IL. I was able to determine the picture theft using Google Search Images. I have submitted a Internet Crime Complaint (IC3) with the FBI. Stay away from this man at all costs. He is a big charmer who will promise to come meet you. He will use God in many references, English does not appear to be his first language. He will play to any weakness he picks up on.
Report N2 (added on December, 29, 2016)
This man made contact first, between 10/16 - 12/16 then asked for email address, then phone number. He wrote such eloquent emails, and has a smooth accent. He claims to be widowed for six years, has a daughter Emily, a mother in law named Catherine Thomas aka Kitty. He said he was raised by his uncle in Greenville WV after his parents were killed in Milan Italy which is where he claims he was born. He claims to be Catholic and have strong faith.
He told me about a contract with Chevron, and running short on funds to do a cleanup in the gulf. Claims to not be able to send many pics of his job as it's against security. He started asking for small amounts of money which led to tens of thousands. Over all, he asked for $50k over four different times, all by wire.
He is smooth, convincing and knows exactly what to say. Uses the terms Babe, Baby, Darling and Sweetie. That way he doesn't need to really remember your name as he has more than one girl going at a time. He even wrote me a promissory note. He will swear that he doesn't know who put these scam claims up about him when questioned, but he has several listed already. He will say his account has been hacked.
This man is dangerous to your bank account and your heart. Nothing except lies. He has a Florida phone number, a Georgia number as well as a New York number. If he contacts you, run the other way. Don't be a fool like me.
