REPORT N1 (added on September, 10, 2013)
Kate (Australia)

The scammer name is Kelvin. He works as a microbiologist which involves investigations on various microbial and fungi diseases in Sydney. He has a son called Richard,he is just 5 years old. He claims he has to conduct a research project in order to publish a book on tuberculosis and be a Professor of microbiologist in West Africa, Nigeria. And he has to take his son there since no one can take of him . After they arrived, his son has an accident in the bathroom he asked for USD2500 assistance since he self funded his way to Africa. He has since asked 13 time for varying amounts promising he will return to Australia and pay every cent back. In total he has asked for 16500AUD of me with varying reasons, medical costs, food, immigration cost to apply for licence to get samples out of Nigeria, yellow card, and the latest being a reschedule of flights. He showers you with compliments but there is always a reason that stops him from leaving Africa and always a request for money.

Lynda (Australia)

Hi. Just noticed the intensity of the relationship questions and sympathy engendered by saying he had a tragic past. His wife died in a tragic car accident leaving him with 6 year old son. His mum died of a disease and Dad killed himself when he was 15. Requests intense for personal information. In love with me after 3 days.

Romance scam letter(s) from Kelvin Derran to Lynda (Australia)
Hello Lynda,

I am happy we can write to each other on here and hope you are having a lovely Sunday? How was church service?

I have always wanted to be a Medical Researcher but ended up with a specific branch which is Microbiology and Virology and i like my job.

The funniest thing ever happened was when I ran my first marathon and I got really sick so basically I ended up running so fast because I needed to use the bathroom and I did not want to use the portable one so I ran as fast as i could to the finish line! Everyone was laughing when they found out because I was not a good runner to begin with but I did a pretty good timing.

I enjoy hiking and used to go travel to united state (Colorado or Wyoming) a year to hike and enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery there. I remember hiking once and mid-way through a really long hike found myself in the middle of an Aspen grove. I remember looking up and watching the sway of the gorgeous leaves all blowing i
