REPORT N1 (added on September, 11, 2013)
Tracey (UK)

He initiated contact. He said his daughter had set up the account for him. Then he came off because he was receiving lots of messages from very young girls from Russia etc. The website was SinglesNearMe. I have been corresponding with him since 27th August. He claimed to own a business called Church Oil Cnnstruction Group and even has a website www.churchoilconstructiongroup.co.uk
I found it strange that he suddenly had to go to Houston and then Durban SA just before we were due to meet. He said there had been a fire at an SAPREF refinery in Durban owned by BP. His company had been given the contract. He sent photos of the explosion, but I have since found out that they were downloaded from Goole Images, and were of a fire in Venezuela. He even sent me a copy of the contract covering letter from BP. His english was a little strange, and his way of addressing me very old fashioned, using words like my dear or my queen. Also the quick way he declared his feelings awoke my suspicions.
He now says he is stranded near Durban, as his car was hijacked. He has asked for ?550. I have not nor do I ever intend to send any money.

Scam Letters

Romance scam letter(s) from Edward Church to Tracey (UK)
Hello Tracey,

How are you doing, I sincerely hope I meet you and the entire family in good health today. I am sorry I was not in immediate communication with you after I got your email address as the load and stress of work takes my time mostly. So how have you been and what have you been upto today, I just thought I write you to know how your day has been. I hope the whole family is also okay and enjoyed the day?

I guess you must have seen that I am no longer on the dating website, I actually told my daughter to take me off the site today as I really did not like the alarming rate at which I was receiving letters and invites from some young ladies who I know would just be about 25-27 years of age asking to want to meet me and all. I have to be extremely careful and I hope you also are.

Well my week has just been okay though very busy, I just got back to my Chelsea Square home from a dinner meeting with some business partners and I am really exhausted as it
