I met him in the dating site 1st March. We continued to correspond off site on emails. 3 weeks later he only started calling me and .....the rest is history. We developed ... Well I presumed a very strong love connection, he sent me roses via inter flora on 7 June 2013. He had a parcel couriered via Cape Town to me on the 14 June and then he asked me to open the envelope so that he could verify the contents...cheque for 260 000,00 US Dollars from Bank of America.
The posted document was sent from Erickson Schuurman with email address ...rocket ail.com and cel: 0780399261.
And asked me to keep it safe until he returns to ZA to be with me. He had also given me he's kids numbers and we actually communicated ..now all fake it appears and I've got numerous pictures of him and he's kids. He was apparently on Aberdeen oil rig in Scotland for the past 7 weeks. Was planning to come to Jhb for me on 27/28June.
I'm shocked a d devastated as he's always being so sweet, reliable as can be and actually was so In love with him.

Romance scam letter(s) from Erickson Schuurman to Dianne (South Africa)
Thanks for your hearts warm mail.I was born on 7 july .I stay at the Durban ville cape town.I work at mosel bay,I only see the kids on weekend.i did not say all my kids study at stellenbosch.I said Susan Study Med cine at stellenbosch.marla at private school.Eric at spring bok aviation school.Eric 22.Susan 18,marla 14...I see what we both are looking for in a relationship..a partner..a friend ..most of all the truth...Seems so simple but not for most ..they tell you what you want to hear. My motto is I would rather have you hurt my feeling with truth than to spare my feeling with a lie.....I treat people with the up most respect ,and expect the same back..I learned because of my long term commitment to my late-wife it was about wanting to be with that person in good times and to get through the bad times. Its about being together because you want to, not because you have to. This is not about being with someone just for now or until something better comes along
