Romance Scams a Growing Threat, Say Investigators













Match.com is the leading online dating site with over 20 Million members and serving 25 countries and languages. Many members are using the site not just to find love in their local area, but also abroad, finding romantic relationships with international members. In addition to Match.com, there is eHarmony, Facebook and countless other ways to connect and meet people online. Starting relationships online is a great way to connect, and can be fun and rewarding. This trend also has new risks, however, as investigators and law enforcement agencies such as the FBI report a significant rise in online dating scams, romance scams, identity theft, and other types of fraud from online dating.

For relationships begun online, it's important to know that no site is immune from fraud. Match.com and other match-making sites have no effective way to screen or verify all users, so be aware that there are criminals mixed in with the honest members, and these criminals are actively looking for victims. Their objective is to gain your trust, win your love, and then steal your money or your identity. And, they are quite good at what they do. Experts advise never to reveal your personal information online to anyone not known personally. Keep your credit card information, address and date of birth private. Take your time and be skeptical of any request for money, such as emergencies, etc. If the relationship is progressing, or if you suspect scam, private investigators say the only way to truly verify the subject is via a real international background check company or firm.

The FBI and Wymoo® International reported in a recent NBC dating scams report that online dating scams are a growing and serious problem, and both are receiving more reports of people being scammed. Fox News ran a similar online dating scams report, highlighting the problem with romance scams on sites such as Match.com. Fox News also applauded Wymoo's efforts on investigating these types of cases, and for their work on preventing scams and fraud. Because criminals are experts at gaining victims' trust, experts say a professional international private investigator is often required to minimize the risk. If a person lives or works in another country, it can be very difficult to know who you are dealing with, and investigators say it is better to be safe than sorry. Experts say to think of a background check as a prudent insurance policy when dating online.

1) Be skeptical of anyone who falls in love over night.
2) Requests for financial assistance is a red flag.
3) Be skeptical of model like photos and "too good to be true."
4) Never share your DOB, address or credit card data.
5) If there is real potential , get a background check.

Online dating and finding love and new friends via the internet is here to stay. Subscribers should proceed with caution, understand the risk, and get a background check when necessary.

All the Best,

  2. I was contacted by this man on Match.com. Unfortunately there are alot of people out there taking advantage of honest hard working people looking for a relationship. These people are scum and are out to get what they can out of people as much as they can without regard to what they do to them or how much they hurt them. Internet dating sites are a place where they prey on people. A man by the name of James Kirkling from Copenhagen Denmark contacted me and I was always asking if this was a scam, he sent several photos of himself, he got me to trust him for months then came the crunch when he needed money. He said that he was in Carolina USA and went to Accra Ghana to work on a contract, after 6 months he needed funds to finish the contract and after alot of questions on my part and doubts, he sent me a copy of this contract and stupidly I sent him money. He has associates by the names of Janet Ologo - Accra Ghana, Belinda Dowuona-hammond - Accra Ghana, Charles Peters - Stone Mountain USA and Abdu Basit Bassa - New York USA. That was over 12 months ago - I am still in contact with him regularly trying to get these funds returned. He assures me that he will be repaying these funds but I am still waiting. DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN AT ALL. Please learn from my mistake - I know there are others that have been taken by these men. Unfortunately we are honest people trusting people and they take advantage. I have an investigation underway into this man and his associates. I am hopeful of getting my money back.

  3. Hi, I am a victim of a scam. I met this guy through Match.com. We dated, he showed me his kids and "ex-wife" pictures and asked me if i have FaceBook. At the time I didn't.He brought me to his Mom's grave-yard for a visit. He told me about his family and how he care for his dad. He said one of his daughter is in Gymnastic trying for future Olympic.Everything he showed me looked real,because he has picture with his kids and not with his supposed "Ex". He even told me that he in u.s. army service and worn the uniform visited me too.I believed him, then as we dated, he asked to borrowed money for his business that he has been working on for two years and if he didn't have the money to continued everything that he work for, will be gone. And then something always came that he needed to borrow money. I lend him my last dollars then he tries to disappear. Because when I dated him, I asked to see his driver license. I remember his age and his bank account that I deposit the money for him.I was missing bank receipts from desk and no one goes to room except him. He always made excuse that he has to deployed over sea. I found out too late. I check my phone called with his called, the phone called was always near where he live or near where I live. and he was never divorced. Everything is a lie and scam my money. I am bring him small claim court, but he already has 12 judgement and liens against him. And I check match.com, He changed his age from 48 to 44. His just checked out 3wks ago or maybe not or just hiding his profile for now . His user name Scopio4ever. He is a Korean-men from Canyon Country,Ca

  4. I too was victim of scam by man on Match.com. These people are professionals and know all the right things to says to suck you in to their trap. He said his name was Samuel Hankins. Born in Brazil. Father:Brazilian, Mother:American. Born Jan. 16/1956. Height:6'5" Address: 1088 Burrard St. Vancouver,B.C. Profile name was:Kentz. Also recieved pics of him (or who he claimed to be) Was working in Maylasia constructing an "Events Building". Was to be paid $2.2 million once project underway. Then scam started!!! Was robbed at gunpoint. 2 workers shot. Needed money to pay hospital bills, then workers, then to pay taxes to get money from bank. Was to get it all back with interest once this was done. Is still trying to get money to come here!Last conversation Jan.26/12. Was naive,trusting,caring person. Believed him. Have lost large sum of money.
    Money was deposited in bank accounts in Maylasia. Has been reported to police and investigation by banks fraud department. Know that probability of ever seeing him or money next to nil but warning to others to beware. These people have no conscience. They prey on honest, hard working individuals with no regard for life.

These people have no conscience or heart.I have reported him to the police also.I too have lost large amount of money.We are not to blame. I felt the same way and trusted him too.

  6. Hi,my name is Rosaria and I am a mature woman on Match.com. I'm so sorry to read that you have been scammed by these horrible people. I've been writing a book about internet dating (my experiences have been colorful). Along the way, I received two approches from incredibly good looking men who had the same sad story: widowers, just getting back into life, looking for love. Sound too good to be true? I thought so. Both had building contracts pending, one in Indonesia, the other in Malaysia. I asked some pointed business questions and they vanished. Three weeks ago, I got a third approach, same story, different handsome face, also expecting a contract, this time in Singapore. I didn't give him any personal information but I did play along on Match for the sake of the book. I wanted to follow the sting and see how much he asked for. $12k, to be sent in three different bundles of $4k, sent from three different Western Union stores. I stalled, pretending illness so I could contact the FBI and Interpol. They said they doubted they'd catch him but took all his info, phone and copies of the messages, the fake contract. Professing endless love after a week of emails? Really? This guy's name is supposed to be Gregory Johnson but I doubt it is. His syntax seems Russian. The hard lesson is to never give a person you meet on a dating site a dime. Not one red cent, under any circumstances. I hope they catch some of these guys but the FBI said if they tracked each one, they'd have no time to go after terrorists...just beware and be careful. Tell everyone, all your friends who do online dating.

  7. A man who says he lives in the U.S. but is away on business in Africa. He says he works for an NGO and needs help. He sends a package to Walmart that I need to pick up. He also sends a paid invoice for the package to be mailed to NY. No money has changed hands. What's going on? Is this a scam?

  9. I was on Match.com for three weeks and started a conversion with 2 men. After about a week of emails and phone calls, I realize that they were both scammers. One goes by the name Sweetapple_89, his name is Richard Willson from Houston Texas and he owns a construction company. He has a 12 year old son named Chris. From the beginning is said that he loves me and I am the women of his dreams. Then the time comes for us to meet and his job takes him to Africa with a contract worth 7.5 million dollars. The next man goes by the name cupiland on Match.com and said his name is Peter Anderson from New Braunfels Texas. He had to spend 2 weeks in the middle east for his oil rig job and lost all his credit cards in the sea. When it was time to return to the States he asked for $2,400 for a return flight and would pay me back as soon as he returned. I told him "NO" and asked him to never contacted me again. I cancelled by Match.com membership and put it in God's hand for the future.

    1. It was a good tyming to find this report , Thanks for posting!!!I was also a victim by Peter Anderson (cupidland).I found him on Match.com on August 4th,2012. All his photos were very nice looking,and we had similar interests.So,I wiked at him first. Peter and I had been connected by Email and skype for a few months. He never shows his appearance in the real life, but his voice was very soft and the way his talk was a kind polite. Then,same thing happened to me... He lost his wallet overseas, he asked for $400( the rest of money for the flight , he said he sold his valuable stuff) for the flight ticket to back to TX. I realized he was a scammer,but still wished he was not.. I was playing for a while to get more info from him, so I recorded all talk on the skype and Email.I sent the file to the FBI web last night.I really can not forgive these type of the guys ,suddenly they are intrustive on someones privacy and steel someone's warm heart who looks for a real love. I've getting a sense of emptiness.....Now, I need to heal my broken heart.

  12. Just had a week long conversation with David Fisher email address fdavid694@yahoo.com. It was too good to be true! He told me that four of his workers died in an explosion and he had to settle with them monetarily leaving him without money. He said he had to travel to China to cash his travelers checks because there was no one in the Philippines that could cash his checks. It was too strange...I called him a scammer and tried to explain that his company was closed until Monday. I told him if the company was his, he can get his accountant to wire him the money he needed or the plane ticket! Be careful girls, this guys is good thank God I was smarter!!!!

    2. I spoke with the same guy for a month and then hit me up for money because he couldn't cash his travelers checks the banks were closed. He never called me again when I told him that I sent match.com a copy of our conversations asking for money. By the way girls always report these men, it might save some poor women future heartbreak and loss of her hard earned money!!

  13. I was on Match.com for about six months. I paid by money order and thank god. All I got was guys that worked away (one military and the other one I can't remember but he supposedly permanently lived in Kansas) and had children that their nanny looked after. One had a son and one had a daughter.

    Within the second conversation, they both were asking for money. I didn't renew my subscription when it ran out. I am wondering if Match is just simply a big scam to take people's money or I have never had much luck on online dating sites.

  14. I was on match.com and still am and met a guy who said his name was John Green. He claimed to be a civil engineer and was stationed in the Philippines. He sent me flowers,chocolates, a build a bear with an I love you message. He sent me emails very detailed, and charming. He phoned me at least 4 times a week. I was stupid and ended up sending him money for a glitch he was in with the expectation he was coming to Boston. He ended up failed with the plan and had the nerve to fake more incidents of illness and asked for more money to help him. He was extremely intelligent, well versed and wrote beautifully. His profile was not what he turned out to be.

  15. Wow....This scam is off the charts. I was on Match for 6 months. I got winks and emails from about 5-6 scammers. All the same. Widowed, one child, parents dead and how lonely they are. All of them are from overseas as they tell you in their emails. Either they are here for a job, they are in Europe at the moment, but will be back in US real soon. I pretty much cut them off first email. Something is not right. Plus they write long silly romantic emails from the get go. They actually read like they are from a woman more than a man. Spelling is all off and they do not dot the "i" 's. They want to get you on Instant messenger right away or say they are not going to be on match any longer -they provide you with a very anglo sounding name, email and even a local cell phone. You will see if you do email them their email address changes quickly to something else. Not a good sign. I purposely got off Match for awhile because I was so disheartened by this scam. I t seemed like thats all there was in this site. Now I am beginning to wonder about Match as a scam service.

  16. I almost got scam by guy i met from match.com
    I think match.com should be strict on posting
    your picture and name.. Match. com is supposed to
    help single to meet right person but, Due to Match. com
    let anyboby post their information.. They are so many scam
    and bad people trying to get money from honest and hard working
    people.. list they could trace a bad person..
    also, match.com can have better view from people. should be
    any dating site.. real love seeking people are already hurt
    by previous relationship and very lonely.. if they get
    scam by bad person.. their life will be more miserable.
    this match.com or any online dating should increase on
    security and able to trace the person..............list..

    all the love seeking single needs good online site so that
    they could be happy in their lives.. also, so many
    people use God name to make them good and honest person..


    You know .. god will not forgive person use God's name..
    we should fear God..

  17. Hi, I met this guy on Match.com we clicked right away. He told me he had to go to Turkey for business and would be gone two weeks. Once the trip ended he told me dropped his Iphone in the water closet and needed one to finish his job and get paid the money he invested, which was all of his money. He then ask for me to raise $1250 to pay the taxed in Turkey to complete the job and be paid and come back to out realtionship in the States. He has no family, his wife and son died in 2009 and no credit cards, no bank account,but seems to be living in Turkey on some money. He claims to be renting a car, staying in an apt for work and goes to the gym and out to eat everyday, but has no money to pay his taxes or his workers.He made promises to buy me a new car, take me to Europe and to marry me. I am not comfortable with this realtionship and need some advice. His pics match and seem real, he seems to know a lot about the area we both live in, and speaks very good English. He does have an accent, he said he was born in the US but raised in Norway.

  18. These jerks aren't just posing as men. I was just approached by a woman claiming to be "Elizabeth Good" on the lesbian match.com site. "She" even provided her business website: http://ralphourantiques.com/ claiming to be the CEO of this business! contact phone number for business and also address were phony of course.. fortunately figured the scam out after one day of texting/msg on yahoo. Found text phone # to be listed a scam after looking it up online. After one day she was wanting me to open up bank account in both of our names so she could share her inherited wealth with me! I no longer have an account on Match.com.

  19. I have met some harmless creeps and more players on match.com the two times I tried it. However, I have recently come across a scammer that really had me going. I am usually more careful because I am a widow and a mature woman. I feel so ashamed that I let it go thinking I will play the game and hope he is real. Then the tragic accident and request for money. Now I have to re-read everything I sent to be really sure I didn't give too much personal information away. Shame on these guys who make woman live in fear.

  21. I too have had men try to scam me on Match.com. One went by the name John Wallace, widower with 1 daughter named Shelia but had to go to Dubai for work. When I started asking specific questions, he disappeared. The other is James Shaw screenname jsaussie04, single with a daughter named Stacey. He had a contract in London, Stacey got sick, he ran out of money and couldn't pay the hospital bill and needed me to send him money. Thank God I have no money. Even with all his confessions of true love, as soon as I informed him that I had no money and gave him a story of my cousin that borrowed 1500.00 to send to her online date that she never saw again he also disappeared. I am wondering if any man on match.com is honest!!!! I was on Match for 3 months in 2011 and 3 months 2012 and both times the only men I seem to attract are these losers. Makes me wonder if those are the only people on Match.com. But fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. I'm never wasting my money on Match.com or any other dating again!.

    Be careful and wise everyone!!


    RE: Hi! Just wanted to say "nice profile" and enjoy...
    Hi ......,


    I really appreciate you writing me here, You know? this is life and we never can tell what little steps we take lead to greatness, and as they say, even a journey of

    a thousand years starts with a single step, and i heard love is not even a destination but a journey for two to walk in harmony for life, maybe this may be our first

    step to greatness, what do you think? lol. I am tired of a life people live by saying they want something and neither do nothing about it nor willing to do so. I don't

    know how online dating works but i know it is a medium where two people can surely get to explore each others mind without sentiments. I know it is good cos it allows

    us to cut blabbering and really speak our minds without intimidation of beauty and soul stealing smiles lol. Seriously i am one who wouldn't bore you, i had discuss

    passion and fun than politics or religion hehehe. How do i make my first impression here? let me give a full biography here.


    Name,..Glen Brownhouse
    D.O.B: 24 Jan. 1959,(turned 54yrs some days ago)
    Background,... Father was from Vancouver, BC, mother is British to core (London, UK),she is having some health issues
    Status,.. I am a widower, i lost my wife long time ago
    Kids,..I have none
    Job,.. I am an oil platform supplier and major contractor, i work mainly with government on their platforms on contract, i am self employed and i have the grace to

    work with close people .



    My father died long ago and i also had my share of the pie when i lost my wife and best friend to cancer about 8 years ago, since then, my Ma has always stayed in

    London ever since while i delved myself into work pretending to be hardworking even though i know in my heart i was trying to just forget my pain and loss though it

    sky rocketed my success but am i really successful without a woman to crown me? I know i would give all i have just to have that one thing money can never buy,. I got

    an apartment in London since five years to be back in my root, i always stay while i am not on any of the oil platforms as it takes me to many places across the

    globe,and also have a house in New York which i sold about 3 months
    Thanks for taking time to read my mail lol,why dont you send me an email at my personal email so we can become more acquainted and meet soon,its gbrownhouse59@hotmail.com.
    Your new found friend

  23. Also on Match.com there is a Andrew Pudelek- says he is in London, also widower, 1 child 7 yrs old, he has not family, both parents died, he was recently assaulted in London and now has no money to return to US. Also spells "i" and so forth.. watch out!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Andrew Pudelek is at it again. I was on to him immediately. He closed out his match account but has my email. I still hear from him but am on to him. He says he lives in the Avondale area of Chicago but is in London handling business matters. Please be careful. When a guy will not give out phone number to communicate that is a red flag. If a guy does not initiate or speak about meeting you in person that is a red flag. He also in email uses a lower case "i" and instead of using word women he will refer to as ladies. He says he grew up in Madrid and lost both parents before the age of 18. He will also not give up any other personal info which is smart so there is no way to confirm who he is. I did play along and get a messenger acct for kicks and asked him what time it was in London. I just knew there would be a long pause I'm sure to give him time to google time difference. Just be smart ladies and use common sense.:)

    2. He will also tell you he is single, never married/no kids, parents died, is in London... am in the process of trying to bust him "in the act," so to speak, then reporting him to Match.

    3. I was also taken in with this Andrew Pudelek and sent thousands like an idiot to England to "help" but was taken in and lost a ton!! If you catch him, let me know - he was always assaulted, robbed, beaten, etc. and needed more. I had a phone number and email and verbal communication frequently from him!!!!

    4. If you catch him, he owes me a lot of money - I was foolish enough to fall for his scam!!! I had phone number, talked to him via cell, home address, etc.

  26. Does anyone know a man who calls himself 'Eric Wilson'??! His username is/was EWHEART on match.com, he has a picture of a very handsome man, and says he is 55 years old, and has a 10 year old son called Sean. He claims that he is orignally from Norway and 'lives' in California. He also claims that he is a widower, his job is 'buying and selling gold bars from auctions in various countries'. Of course the usual scenario, went to Belgium to buy gold and his flight got delayed so he missed that auction and supposedly 'had' to go to Ghana to pick up the Gold, and was then going to fly to the UK to meet u with me, but of course he 'lost his wallet and baggage' and needed some money from me...He is CLEARLY a SCAMMER, who says the right things to make you feel like he is 'falling in love with you' and to mae you feel that you are falling in love with him.. usual lines, 'I can't wait to have you in my arms', 'Every day I am falling in love with you more'. He is a scammer from GHANA, and is after your money!! His email that he used was/is: greatkisser_56@live.com and he also uses: ericwilson100111@gmail.com. Just be aware!!!

  30. Here is how to find out where the scam is coming from. On a Windows systems, go ahead play along with the possible scammer, tell them to load the messenger but you want to see them on the cam. Press start, then in the box for run, type CMD. A DOS window will open, type netstat -n and all the ip addresses being used will appear, then you can use google to locate the ip, most of the scammers are not even in Ghana, Nigeria, UK or any other place but the USA and they use local services. Some of the scammers text you from a 6 digit number that will appear on your caller id, this might be an voip line or software like kik, yahoo, boodle, whatsapp and so on. I did some research and best is to play along then tell them after you located the ip that you are not interested anymore, use STOP TEXTING ME, they understand. Also copy or print their match.com page right away because most of them will disappear until they are done with the scam then they do it again. Also save all the pictures and when you see it again report the person to match.com or match.CON as I call it. I have never been conned by one, but it was pretty obvious when they all use the same lines and some are verbatim like copy paste. Also look for that in messages, regardless if the text is the same with the same typo it is probably the same person with a different user name.

  31. I received now about 10 mails from scams in MATCH.COM. How I know they are scams??? A friend of mine had it some months ago in MATCH.COM MEXICO.. "HE" IS ALWAYS:
    -widower
    -has a daughter or a son
    -attractive
    -earns 150,000 or more
    -want to get marry and find the love of his life and grow old together (all any woman will love to hear)
    -he wants you to contact him to his personal mail and he asks yours because his account will expire tomorrow or because he doesn't trust in match.com !!!!!!!
    -they are investors or have great business
    -sometimes they cannot even write good english and you can see clearly they use a google translator or so...

    DON'T LET YOU SCAM YOU! AND ASK MATCH.COM TO TAKE CARE OF ITS CLIENT, OTHERWAY THEY WILL CONTINUE LOSING CREDIBILITY! AND OF COURSE, THEY WILL LOSE $

  32. Don't be disheartened, but just be aware, do hours of searching on the new person you meet. I will give my personal story of how I firstly should of done that and didn't and got scammed and burnt.She claimed she was "Morgan Linda Chris" MORGAN LINDA CHRIS ma-03-03 sri semarak apartment Puchong Selangor Kuala Lumpur Malaysia pioneer014u@yahoo.com +60169148952 though match.com usual story Dad dead lives with elderly Mum, only child, 31, drop dead gorgeous, she sent me lots of photos but only a few seemed to be recent, also all were very low resolution. Lots of emails, hours on chat, only talked briefly on phone she would claim her ph was old and network was bad. Yes i was a fool, and sent her money. In the end I had a guts-full so actually flew to malaysia, the address was real but a Chinese family lived there, they had never heard of her, nor had the apartment office. The next girl was by all accounts great but as a previous entry mentioned, the profile description was a bit lengthy and perfect, on chat she really nice, her emails were lengthy and i began to suspect when i could see stuff copied and pasted in emails and later in chat sessions, she went on skype seeing me but claimed her webcam didn't work, so never heard her voice, she lived in Ghana and wouldn't give me and exact address.:Hellen Anim Ansah hellenlovely43@yahoo.com BEWARE SHE IS A SCAM even has a facebook which has no activity, and the photos she sent were EXACTLY the same ones on her face book. http://www.facebook.com/hellen.lee.961 In my investigations, the 3 photos she uses are an american actress, in her emails she would say "I love it when I am in your arms and you hold me" in the middle of a huge essay with many grammar and spelling mistakes. She asked me for $400 or a new laptop, I said I would send it, she gave her "brothers" address, so then i had her on, she claimed to go to Uni, I said i had a good friend there who's husband work in the embassy and was often flying between NZ and Ghana, so he would bring laptop free give it to his girl and then could meet her and get it, reasonable? NO WAY she could;t have that.... scam revealed. NOW Asian dating .com is better than most, ONLY SELECT A DATE that has a VERIFIED PHOTO, and get your own photo verified, only by a passport scan and they check. This girl and I went to a separate chat, her profile had no huge "perfect" essays just, "ask me later" she emailed photos, lovely. but not "perfect" or suggestive... we wee on skype 1 hour later, she called my phone without me asking, she actually talks on chat, not just says repeating "i love you" She gave me her address, I google maps it,she has called me on the phone numerous times and we have talked, unlike the other two with excuses the phone is old or the network is bad. Here is a website you can go to to check for reports on names and emails:
    http://www.russian-mates.com/blacklist/gss/
    also learn how to do an IP search, and see if this awesome bloke or gorgeous girl isn't from Nigeria:
    http://whatismyipaddress.com/
    And then be friends first...if the other one starts unrealistically claiming undying love etc etc in he second chat session... up go the alert flags OK and also pray about it, for protection and wisdom... and then find that guy or in my case awesome girl of your dreams...

  33. Please be aware that Richard Beadley, John Beaux and Joel Woods are all fraudulent people. They use the same man's pictures, a pilot. This scam is based out of Nicaragua and yes I was scammed, but not out of money just time and pride. Richard contacted me through Match.com, said his wife (Isabella) died in childbirth and his daughter Jane was living with him mother Rebecca in Manchester England while he was working for the ATA in Syria on a special mission. Said he was from CA but just moved to Hampton, VA. Ladies he is good and he will end up breaking your heart. So, always get an email address and Google it as well as photos. That's my advice.

Sent me a very handsome photo, 2 actually and looked to be the same guy in both. Asked what the emblem met on his ballcap, he could not tell me. asked what time it was in London, took a bit to reply, had that answer up on the screen already. asked him to tell me what was playing on the radio right now thru iheartradio. he bailed. Buzzed me a couple of times and then stopped.

      His profile on Match.com is down right now...must have been hoping I'd send him $$

    2. My mum has recently been scammed by Colonel George Winfred, contact made on match.com he sent her love songs and all sorts then this week asked her for money claiming he needed it as his mother is sick and he is out in Afghanistan with the army. He claimed to have a home in Hampshire and supplied a photo which may be the real colonel George Winfred but don't believe the person contacting is. Luckily my mum didn't give him any money and now he has stopped contact...

    3. I am a mature lady (a widow) and was contacted by this guy, George Winfred, and although I was suspicious from the outset, nevertheless, the attention was good. He proclaimed undying love almost from the word Go and sent cards and songs via YouTube. After a few days I decided to Google the name and found it appeared on this blog so decided to keep it going to see where the journey took me. It ended with a request for money to buy an air ticket to get back from Afghanistan to sort out his mother who suffered with near blindness. The story much the same as above - had a home in Hampshire, widowed, one daughter, Priscilla and aged mother who lived in Birmingham. We had exchanged email addresses and when I discovered the entry on here, requested that he used a different email address for me which was a gmail address also. That was interesting as it then had a thumbnail photo of him (different to the one on his match,com profile) and when I double clicked on it, it opened another window which gave an address as Hampshire Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts!! I also discovered by clicking on the photo on there, it revealed more photos, two of which showed him piloting a small aircraft!! I am not sure that the photos aren't all a front as the more I think about it, the more I think it was more than likely written by a woman as it was too flowery by far for most men. Also the standard of written English was poor so I think he / she was probably not English speaking as their first language. My response to the request for money was actually quite sarcastic as I told whoever that I had been ahead of them most of the time and was just waiting for the catch - and also asked how the weather was in Massachusetts. Needless to say I have heard no more.

  37. Watch out for CLASSIT64 - Neel Rhashan - 49 - supposedly from Atlanta, GA on Match.com. Says he came to the US from Indonesia 11 years ago - American father/Indonesian Mother. The classic scam - Widower w/ 9 yr old son (Dean) who is homeschooled. Only child - parents deceased - wife died 2 yrs ago during childbirth. Says he is a building engineer and running his late father's jewelry business. He is working on a gold contract and goes to London. Then when gets back and has to go quickly to Ghana, Africa to oversee the mining of the gold. Upon arrival his phone does not work and his son's luggage with PS2 & games are stolen. Asks you to send new phone and PS2 and games. Once he gets - he lets about a week go by and then hits you up for the payday - $60K to pay the company who needs to test and certify the gold to be pure. VERY convincing about his caring for you. Sends you songs like Shaina Twain's From this Moment on and Kenny Rogers "Lady". Don't be fooled by this. I was smart enough not to send money but did fall for the phone and PS2. Feel lucky when I read all the other posts and watched the June 2011 ABC 20/20 "Online Dating Nightmares: N.Y. Woman scammed out of Thousands".

    The name he used for me was ssum0505@talkmatch.com, and he goes by the name David Benson. Just so amazing how they don't change their story. 'David' had two sons in boarding school in Sweden, he is an only child, both parents dead, he's a gemologist, lives in Houston, but in London for several weeks, and wrote great emails.

  39. Watch out for a match.com guy named Rogerio Neves, says date of birth is April 28, 1967. Says he lives in Orange County, does classified work for the government, then he is working in S Africa. Next thing you know has bought gold bars from a gold mine in S Africa. Wants you to sell them for him and you get a commission. He wants to IM pretty quickly, says he does not like emailing. He is quite sweet sounding but his correspondence is always short. Almost right away acts like he cares for you and you have not even met. BEWARE. I am not dumb, just a bit lonely, and at first I was falling for it.

  41. Same story here.. I was approached by a Robert Lance age 55 born may 29.
    He is a widow has a 14 yr old daughter name Sandy.
    He lives in Ontario, Canada.
    He will not go on Skype.
    He gave me his home number no cell phone.
    The number shows up private.
    He told me name of church he attends and the school his daughter goes to.
    His profile name is DTQ 837, says he is from Palm Beach
    He says he was born in France, and was raised In Denver, Colorado.
    He also said I was the woman he was looking for all his life.
    I received a daily e mail for the last 3 weeks.
    When we spoke on the phone he has a very strange voice and accent. Not French at all!!
    Immediately I thought he sounded Asian , he can't pronounce the r.
    He left for Spain on 8/1/2013 , he e mailed me a cell phone number to reach him.
    Also when he called me it only showed a 6 digit number and then unknown number twice.
    Monday 8/7/2013 I received an e mail
    He said he was robbed at gunpoint and they had taken his laptop wallet and credit card.
    That same evening he called again saying that he needed a laptop to complete his engineering job.
    I told him I had no money and he needed to contact the company he was doing the work for.
    He tried to make me feel guilty, saying he couldn't believe I wouldn't help him.
    Fortunately it didn't work.
    I didn't loose any money.
    He did asked me to take my profile down from match. Com.
    He said he was a jealous man and didn't want no one else to approach me.
    He send me the song from this moment from shania twain also!! Lol
    His e mail is rlance503@yahoo.com, I did a reverse e mail search and it came back e mail does not exist.
    He didn't get any money out of me but he did get my heart.
    I'm extremely sad, I feel stupid !!
    My emotions are a mess!!
    I really fell in love with this whole fantasy!!
    He said he was coming to meet me in 6 weeks with his daughter .
    That I had changed his whole life!
    That we were going to be together for ever!!
    I'm so distraught!!!
    The whole thing is disgusting!

  47. The above information I listed were locations I shipped supplies and sent money to. I know the above information is false, I just wanted to list everything I had to help anyone else that might fall in love with a possible man scam.

    I know I will never receive any of the money I sent. As of today, I am devasted, sad, hurt and scared. I am ashamed, disappointed, embarrassed and in huge debt all for nothing!! I let this man into my personal life, we talked about God and have the same beliefs, how can someone be so cruel and dishonest and still live with them self? How can people lie and hurt another human being? It makes me sick!!!

    I still believe in my faith, and I believe God will punish "Marc Jordan"

    If anyone has any words of encouragement, please send them my way as I am struggling to find myself and to get myself back in order to be this amazing, beautiful, single mom and a professional working women that God has created me to be.

    It’s amazing what we do for love....no money can buy love and happiness.

    Please reach out to me to give me hope, strength and encouragement. I am too embarrassed and ashamed to talk to any one...I really need to hear I will be OK...

  50. Ladies, watch out for Paul Hoffmann (passionateguy426@gmail.com). I am certain he is a scammer, as he has ALL the telltale signs. The problem is, I scared him off when he asked for my full name, and I refused to give it to him. I was TRYING to get him to ask for money, so I could bust him and tell Match. ALWAYS look for these warnings in anyone (these were his too)
    Grammar and syntax are off
    Construction profession
    Seems to be madly in love right away
    Calls you sweetie, dear, etc
    Parents are dead
    Single dad of one 7-year-old daughter
    Working a construction job in Africa
    When I asked to see photos, said his camera was stolen
    Wants you to IM via Y! Messenger
    Wrote insanely long, flowery, cheesy emails
    Keep those emotions in check, and keep an interest in multiple guys at once, ladies. You'll more easily be able to tell the legit guys from the scammers that way. Scammers are out there; it's a shame, but it's reality. Set up an email account with NO identifying information and use that just for dating sites. DO NOT use your last name! Share no personal info! Trust is earned. Make 'em really, really, really earn it. And don't give them money. Seriously.

    1. Well the fact that someone ask for your full name doesn't mean they are scammer. You shouldn't put yourself out there if you have trust issues and never try online dating. From my research scammer don't give out details about them how are you able to get his full name? You need to find out point before posting them.

  53. One more story....Carl Milst, born in Arhus, Denmark of British father and Danish-Aussi mother. The only child, no siblings, no children, no friends. Field Architect/ see LinkedIn. Starting reestablishing his late father's jewellery business. A polite,mega intelligent man. Knows how to make up stories. Looking for that loving, caring, special woman. Willing to relocate anywhere as long as he can be happy with that special one. carmilst@hotmail.co.uk. Profile on Skype: Carl Milston, Northallerton, North Yorksire, Storbritannia. Scanned copy of false passport. Business trips to South Africa, then to Ghana where his father left him an investment in form of uncut gemstones.What a BS!!!. Made me his only beneficiary(!) of the stock of the stones, that I never asked for. The man is intelligent,his emails and wording impaccable! The person's name that colleceted my money transfers to him is Charlene Danhuaq, Accra, Ghana.Due to delays, he run out of cash in those parts, and he never uses any form of credit cards or electronic banking due to some losses years earlier.
    I still can't understand how I belived in every word of this scammer. I regard myself an intellignt woman, have been around in this world, lived in different countries myself, also in South Africa, know a bit on various cultures and nathionalities. His profile was taken off Match.com almost immediately after we had made contact with each other. I thought the fact was strange, but..a beautiful explanation from his side made me belive in him. Well...never again will I ever let a man fall in love with me within a few days time. I even got delivered 24 beautiful red roses with a card and a teddy bear to my residential address in Norway. That was before he suddenly had to fly to Ghana to sort out things regarding the stock of the gemstones.On his way home from Accra he apparently had a healt incident at the Airport,fainting and breaking a few bones due to an unfortunate fall. I started receiving emails from a "doctor" that I did not belive in. Well, the story is digusting, as I really gor to like him. Carl Milston is a scammer without a doubt! Let's hope that what goes around comes around. Uses a mobile number that is not a british number..found the number on Android Mania.eu. I did make a promise to myself I'll meet him face to face one day. Do not belive anyone that emails you a scanned copy a passport!
