REPORT N1 (added on January, 4, 2017)
Lisa (USA)

The scammer very quickly let me know his e-mail address and started writing beautiful letters. I got suspicious because his writing was pretty bad and from the second time I got an e-mail from him, his e-mail went directly to Trash. I did some research regarding scams and I found one letter from a certain Raymond James in your site. The letter that I found was almost identical to the letter I received. He just had changed some small details.
REPORT N2 (added on April, 7, 2017)
Mya (USA)

After receiving a wink from Funny_Red_Guy on Match, I read his profile (attached) and decided to wink back. He then sent me a message via Match Mail, which I responded (both attached). He immediately asked that I use his personal e-mail (bruceconstruct1@live.com) to communicate going forward. I, in turn, requested that we keep using Match Mail. However, after not hearing back from him and noticing that his full profile was no longer available on Match, I went ahead and sent an e-mail to his personal e-mail. My assumption was that he decided not to renew his membership. To be safe, I created a second yahoo e-mail address, so as not to reveal my last name.
Furthermore, as soon as "Bruce" provided me his full name, I searched for him to see what I would find. I came up with nothing, so became even more skeptical. I went along with his e-mails, and ended up sharing my personal e-mail w/ last name inadvertently when I replied from my iPhone. In another one of my e-mails, I actually mentioned my birthday (and age), so now he knows my DOB as well (which is very concerning).
After he provided his phone #, a search led me to your site indicating he was a romance scammer by the name of Raymond James with another e-mail address (using aol instead of live). In addition, a reverse look-up on the phone # indicated it was a LAN Line in Rochester, New York. At this point, I obviously knew he was a fraud. As a result, I never called or texted his phone # and stopped all communication as well as blocked his e-mail from my yahoo account(s). Although he didn't ever ask me for money, I'm sure it would have eventually ended that way. Throughout our communications, I thought it was odd that he never would directly answer my questions or acknowledge some of the information I was sharing with him. His e-mails seemed a bit "canned".

Sally (USA)

I met Ray online at Match. He asked for my personal e-mail address as there was something he didn't like about the responses he was getting from the women on Match. He immediately took his name off of the site. We exchanged rather long e-mails and texts on a daily basis for several weeks His grammar and sentence structure were commiserate with his stated education He said he is a self-employed civil engineer, planning to get out of field work and manage contract bids from home He said he was in Dubai working on an oil rig when an accident happened, causing one man's death and 3 to land in the local ICU. A few days later, he said there were cash flow problems, as Abu Dhabi had loaned Dubai $10 billion and before the government would release the payment for the contract of $13.6 million, he had to pay the taxes of $120 K. He said he could get most of the funds from friends and family, but needed the additional $45 K from me.
Here is the banking information:
Bank name: China Merchant bank
Bank Address: head Office china Merchant Bank TWR Shennan BLV China, China Merchants tower,, No. 7088 Shennan Boulevard, Shenzhen, china
Swift Code: cmbccnbs
Beneficiary name: Full House Enterprise Ltd. Floor 12, wing On Plaza, 62 Mody road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, HK
Account No: osa755924602032208
Purpose of transfer: for purchase of home furniture
I went to my bank, and the bank was unwilling to make a wire transfer without a background check. I contacted the company he stated he was working with/for, Octego Ltd. They responded that he was not an employee nor anyone they had ever heard of. I then did a reverse telephone number check, learned the number is for a landline in Rochester, New York., which also brought me to this site.
REPORT N4 (added on August, 18, 2017)
Julie (USA)

Similar to another report on this site Raymond contacted me through Match. Wanted to immediately communicate via personal email. I got the exact same story about being an engineer just finishing up a contract in UAE and then he would be shifting to working from home writing contracts. But, there was a problem finishing the project...accident on the job site which sent 3 to the ICU, then he was detained leaving UAE. Just got another email a month later stating that he had left the UAE and was now in the UK but had been detained once again because he didn't have a certification stating that the funds he was paid out were not terrorism related. I wish I had not deleted all of the other emails I had because I had quite a collection.
I was asked several times for money to help with paying taxes so his funds could be released and then sending money for bail so he could get out of detention in UAE and fly home to me. This went on for almost a month. The emails have started again but thanks to this site now I'm positive it's a scam and not just suspicious.
REPORT N5 (added on September, 4, 2018)
Simone (Canada)

James Richardson also reported on this site as Raymond Parson, has contacted me via Zoosk. Same MO as what other women have reported in terms of wanting to communicate via email rather that via Zoosk, and story of being a self employed civil engineer looking for his soul mate and wanting to stop travelling and settling down to work from home. He sends very eloquent emails trying to be romantic and the guy of your dreams. Way too good to be true. His photos (if him and not a model) are professionally done (obvious to me, especially when you trace the photo) and when I went digging to read about his company Octego Ltd. every website link within the links led to dead ends.... there are no websites for this company when you start really digging. An then, I fell onto this website where the photo is of the same man (or model) but identified as male scammer, Raymond Parson.

Romance scam letter(s) from Raymond James to Mya (USA)
Let’s be honest, the first place we all start is with the pictures, and hopefully we’re interested enough to go on and read the profile. It pays to remember though that there’s a real person with a unique personality on the other side of the computer screen. While I like to think I stand out from the crowd, I’d prefer you discover that for yourself, but I do think I have a lot to offer the right person! I might be the guy for you if you are looking for someone who practices random acts of love and appreciation. I’m one who loves to touch and share terms of endearment with the woman special in my life. I love to laugh and make others laugh, but there is a sensitive side to me that has been known to tear up for a sad or touching movie. An extremely hard worker, I dedicate many hours to my career , but have plenty of time to devote to the right person. A healthy lifestyle is important to me, and I enjoy a variety of activities to stay fit and in shape. Non-judgmental,

Romance scam letter(s) from Raymond James to Julie (USA)
My darling, i was just released from jail today and i feel i need to let you know that i have just sorted myself out and will be flying to the United Kingdom to have my funds processed and you will be receiving your funds as soon as i'm paid.

I felt very hurt with your last email to me for you to think i took advantage of you is really sickening but that doesn't change how i feel about you.

Let me know where you will like your funds to be sent and i will do so as soon as i have the funds, for you to bring money up as a deciding factor in our relationship is not fair at all but i know My God will fight for me and you will soon see i meant you nothing but love and affection.

Loving you is that which keeps me going

Love Always

Romance scam letter(s) from Raymond James to Simone (Canada)
Good morning my exciting stranger Zita!

It is heart calming to see your response, I really appreciate this communication and I will say it is a sign of will, and I tell you where there is a will there is success ahead. I have been made to know I do write and speak well in a way that gets to the mind, well, I think I simply try my best to express what I feel and I don’t edit what I say or hide my feelings no matter what the recipient feels as I believe nothing supersedes the truth. I must emphasize that I am not one of those who seek instant chemistry. That is where most people go astray, seeing someone in an instant and luring yourself to really believe there is something in you that immediately that which you can’t explain in someone, then I wonder how people defines infatuation or childish crush otherwise.

The essence of online dating was never intended for people because they lack the courage to interact with opposite sex physically, but because research sh
