You may come across the same photo with a DIFFERENT name. He fits the profile and so does she fit the profile of a mark. They have thousands of identities and work at it 24/7. His name is Alex Aiden, 45, grew up in London when he lost both his parents at 10. Internet connection is bad and he cannot access his banks for money. Said that I could check that he has a lot of money in the account. One in particular responded with a comment that she was glad family was important to him. But, they cross us off their lists and go on to the next one. He gave a fake address in NJ, and paid for my flowers with a stolen AMEX account. He has Facebook account under Larry Richards, Larry Richard,and Larry Serdar. I think I've met a scammer too, although he got nothing from me. Currently in Turkey, and due to the ISIS attacks these few days, his equipments was damaged.
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. His daughter was in a photo with him & had long blonde hair.
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. As his texts became longer it was evident he had broken English.
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. 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.
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.
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.
We are aware that they can find it but we do Not need to give it to them on a silver plate!!! My scammer called me from the oil rig in the gulf of Mexico one time and there were also children in the background. This man took me for ,000 and found me on Twitter Join the Facebook page too so you and I can communicate.
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. 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.
He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. He was born 5/7/60 & his photos (3) showed him as good looking with gray hair.
The less we interact with them the less hold they have on us. No online presence in the name he gave, no verifiable info forthcoming. Supposedly now on drilling platform in Poland, having a bad day, and machinery order held up with final payment needed, bank account frozen because he didn't notify them he's abroad. I have received so many friend requests through a friend. I just wanted to add that my guy used the name Micheal (NOT MICHAEL) John.
