I don’t understand why anyone would give a suspected scammer access to what should be OUR space to help other women by posting our stories. This is suppose to be a safe place to share our stories and get input from others that have been victims. He approached the wrong girl – I’m terminally ill, partially paralyzed, never wanted children, can’t cook and don’t clean, don’t care for country or gospel music, and am not particularly religious.
True, they could probably find their way here, but I’d venture to guess they are concentrating their efforts on looking for other "marks". Let's keep it safe for all and if any of us feel that there is a scammer on here and posting then please let the editor of this page know and By All Means Please Do Not Give Them This Site. I doubt I’ll hear from him again but will happily join in the effort to stop these predators from this abhorrent behavior. Has anyone been approached by an oil rig engineer looking to start a relationship through asking you to play a game in WWF and then starting a convo through the WWF app before asking for your phone number? Let's stay alert and refuse their ridiculous requests for Itunes cards and whatever else they lie about. My scammer was Brazilian and he spoke Portuguese and he said he was a US citizen and that his mother raised him in Rio de Janeiro.
This is trying to take advantage of victims again by charging a small [so they claim] fee for recovering their money - which is just another scam! He was born 5/7/60 & his photos (3) showed him as good looking with gray hair.
He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy. Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled! I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him. I watched several You Tube Videos that actually show the real person's photo and the scammer's photo. Looks to me like there are very many of them in West Africa (Nigeria and Ghana), Russia and even the Philippines. I use to feel safe here but he was told about it and Threatened me for putting my story on here. I shut them down and these guys/gals that read Facebook are dangerous and I’ll just keep blocking but still would like to know if anyone knows of Craig Lisowski or Robin Marler Arelene.That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. The link that Annie sent to her scammer may not be seen by many of them. There is also Scam Haters United that has videos and photos of the real men and the creatures that steal their identities. We all want to feel safe in telling our stories and sharing them and making friends with each other. They do laugh at us because they think we believe them. I want to see them all put out of business or put in jail. Thank You for feeling as I feel about Annie giving out the site to her scammer. Yes scammers are aware of this site and try to post on here. I come here for Comfort and read what other's went through. God Bless I'm not even sure how I ended up on this site but these stories are sounding all too familiar. I had the same experiences with my scammer and we even talked on regular phone calls. Actually became close, he was very caring, loving, but he always within a few days had a hardship of money, mostly for his phone as he was only alloted so much time.He is all lovey dovey lol, so he was in Florida on Vacations, traveled to dubai, once he got there his debit card was blocked and he wanted me to send him money. Sweet whispery heavily accented voice and also turned controlling and angry. He posts photos of him dark haired, white shirt, dark jacket/trousers, smiling and this is also his facebook profile which is empty BTW.We argued about that, he wanted me to send him a walmart debit card, but finally I told him I was not doing it, and I was done with that theme, now he said there was an accident on the oil rig, and one person is dead. He has not responded to my email yet, he has sent me pictures of a very handsome guy who I am sure is not him. He also uses photos of an older woman with dark hair and supposed sister wearing glasses, claiming his mother just had heart attack but does not reveal what hospital the mother is in. He is unusually very sweet, speaks in a silent voice, whispers and sometimes you can hear children in the background that are probably his :-)) hardly him being on an oil rig.I believe I screen most/all of the scammer posts before they appear in order to keep this a safe place for victims to communicate - anonymously if they wish. As his texts became longer it was evident he had broken English.
That is why there is a delay from placing a post to it appearing live on the site so I can filter all potential scammers, trolls, abuse etc. I also have to say that I don’t understand what "playing" with them accomplishes. If you want to "play" try a board game or get another hobby. The last thing we wanted is to give them more leverage. As with others here he asked some odd questions, i.e., what did I eat for breakfast or what was I going to eat for lunch, did I want to come feed him.
I showed him a copy of his ip trace.said I would die - be killed. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him. Since we are all anonymous, I would be very careful posting any email addresses. If there was a way to reach every woman out there I would. The scammers too give out the info to others that is how mine found out about it who I had not talked to in a long time, then sent me that message Laughing. The most common post is a scammer posing as a victim saying they found someone who is in Nigeria who wants to stop scammers and works to get victims their money back. Please send me his pic before I get anymore involved. It is sad when I have been here for over a good year and now the scammers are coming on here by other's telling them to come here. No he laughed, thought we were all dumb and idiots for being scammed. Different name, but widowed with an 11 year old boy, no other family and is an independent civil engineer working on an oil platform. My heart aches, and I am normally not taken easily. I will never forget the experience I had with him as he was so sweet, fun and kind until I asked him to never ask me for money and then he became furious and talked very hateful. with a 16 yo daughter presently living with an Aunt in Michigan.
We must let all our Facebook friends know what to watch out for. I was hurt and felt betrayed by her giving out this site for I Swear I think the Ed Steve has done a great job here to keep us protected and I praise them for it. Hope ones reading this understand "Do Not Give This Site To Your Scammers" They all work together. They then provide a email address that victims can contact to get their money back. He even said I was his soul mate, that he was in love with me. Live and learn, but he had a wonderful beauty about him. My guy had the same backstory: owned his own offshore drilling company and currently working on a project for Exxon Mobil which ends in February. Widower looking for a wife & good mother for daughter. I found him interesting at first – he was a friend of a friend on FB.
We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him. I’d post his pic but interestingly enough it is gone from FB.
He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. I’ll keep hunting this lowlife down and post anything I find. Same Sad Story1/5/18 Don’t trust those either and instead of a private inbox they put their opinion in the notifications right in public.
The only way around this was to bring in a computer wizard from Egypt who would deactivate the tracker and he could proceed to deliver it to me.
