Started talking on tinder on 3 Nov 2017. just signed up. never dated before...Says he's lived in South Africa since he was 47 years.he claims that he lives in Oxford street, Durbanville. Widower wife died in fire accident. 1 x daughter 27 yrs old and 2 x granddaughters live in Australia. He's got his own construction company, roads, tunnels, bridges and does house renovating and then sells the houses. goes to church on Sundays.
started talking and messaging on watsapp 9 Nov 2017. said hes left tinder, but he is still on there!
Insisting I send him a picture of myself as he wants to see who hes talking to.
So his picture on the watsapp looks different to the photos of him on tinder.
I ask him about it and he says its his friends birthday, thats why he has the friend photo on watsapp.
one day when he phoned me there weas a child in the background, he said it was his friends grandson.....
next he tells me all sob stories about a friend whos wife has died that day.... said they were like family to him.
13 nov 2017 - he tells me hes got a big contract in Walvis bay,Namibia. he sent me the contract - I'll upload it here $1,90050-00!!! the contract duration is 5 weeks! all ready I was starting to get very suspicious!!! but, giving him the benefit of the doubt....
so he phoned me from the airport the next day to say hes leaving. then I asked him to send me photos of his work in Namibia as I've never been there.
then 15 Nov he starts telling me he went to MTN to get roaming on his phone arranged. phoned me. then he starts to give me missed calls and asking me to buy him airtime as hes got none. so, i tell him buy online... he says he can't as he has given his friend the logon to his bank and now cant even do online banking as the internet is bery bad there.
so I tell him to go to the bank and transact from there, still he keeps on asking me for airtime as his friend is not replying to his calls.
