Report N1 (added on February, 16, 2017)

Met him on meetme in October of 2016. At the time he was supposibly in Bremen Germany where he lived. Went on business in oil and gas supply in November 2016. He said he was 52 but on meetme it said he was 48 and from Kansas. Went to Nicosia Cyrprus in November and claimed he didn't take any checkbook, credit cards or debit cards because he wouldn't be there long. He was begoing for money for his hotel bill, phone card, hospital bills and surgery which he claimed he was hit by a car and broke his leg. He sent me pics of his leg and I found the exact pics on twitter. He said his wife died giving child birth and that he had a son in a private school. Sent me the pic of his son and he was an actor when I looked up the pic. He was asking for money all the time. Right now he claims he needs surgery Feb 13th 2017 and wI'll be in jail in Nicosia for not paying this oil company for supplies. He is definitely a romance scammer and I have I have sent money 3 different times. He is still at it.

Report N2 (added on March, 30, 2017)

He (Michael Lopes) contacted me via Match. He then wanted me to email him at his personal account. We exchanged emails on Jan 18, 2017. We communicated several occasions. He then had to go to Istanbul for supposedly a job. He says he is an engineer. He says he was born in El Salvador, only child, moved to Europe, went to UK college, got his degree and started traveling. Lived in Texas with his now deceased wife which was a nurse. They had one daughter named Maggy that supposedly has twins. He has sent me flowers which was stupid on my part to share my address. I am not in contact with him any longer but I have his itinerary that I am going to share here. He is suppose to be flying from Istanbul on Sun April 2, 2017 to McGhee Tyson Airport in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has reservations at The Marriott in Pigeon Forge Tennessee for 7 nights and 6 days. He never asked for money but somehow paid for his flight here and room stay. I will post his airplane ticket on here as well. He is also on this site as DAVID PAUL PETERSON. Same picture and all. He had 8 profiles on Facebook under Michael Lopes and I blocked all of them. No activity on them. I will stay far, far, away from him. Look out ladies, especially in Tennessee. This has been the best money I've spent for this subscription in a long time. I knew it was a scam I just couldn't find anything on him until I stumbled upon this website. THANK YOU!!!!!
