And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.
Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason.
If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam. Says hes German born, dead parents, a son in England. I had the same thing only i new from the jump i google picture search the firat day i let him work for me for 6 weeks lmao hahaha i had him in tears i had to school him buffalo dont play that will be the day i pay any man to come to me haha on what planet is a man ask a women for money okay in the end i really enjoyed the attention lonley house wife my hes im house lol now i had crying i even got his real identity pics and much more jackson Williams 1988 oh yes what a sexy accent and a picture to dye for well guess what he ia no oil rig bull cant get off the ship unless you pay his 30 thousand dollara to his barrister lol wow not sure i would pay that even if he was real lol I think this guy has been scamming me.
Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. The accent is more like a Nigerian who attended British schools. same story about being an electrical engineer and had to go to cape town Africa for work said he will return in 2 weeks.
Must have said that a dozen times this evening and we only talked for about twenty minutes. I said I wanted to see a photo of him with today's date but his phone couldn't take pictures. I'VE spoken with him via skype WITH video so I know his real face. :( If you have read enough stories on this site, you have no option BUT to believe he is a scammer. The Federal Trade Commission Act authorizes this information collection for purposes of managing online comments.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims.
They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine?
If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer.
I met a guy whose name is Joel Stephen Greco through dating site in Japan. I started exchanging mails and soon he wanted to chat on skype. He sent me some of his photos, but I did not notice he is a famous guy there. My German sounding scamme's name is Henrik Markud with an engineering job for Petronas Oil in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Has not asked for money, but its been barely a week. The name he used was Clark Gibson but I've seen him use the name Huffman Alfred Gibson. Judy, this guy sent me a friend request and the name is Justice Wilson Huffman. On any given day, there are approximately 20 men named Huffman Albert Gibson listed on facebook! Got me off the website quickly and began romancing the stone in his third email to me .
Last weekend we promised to chat sometime in a weekend, but suddenly he stopped calling me, sending me any messages, so I googled. I have been talking to "Robert Dietrish" for months. His wife died from cancer, his son had a brain tumor while at Boarding School in London, he cannot cash his check gor 2.7 million because the government tax agency is demanding ,000 in taxes up front. Looked too good to be true and the accent on the phone was not German. I called his bluff on Aug 1st and reported him to all Malaysian authorities. Kuala Lumpur going on for a year now...called his bluff today. His timeline says he is from Frankfurt, Germany but lives in SF, CA. Almost all are either widowed or divorced, approximately 50 years old and in the oil or gas exploration business. His email is drrkbrt Claims his wife died 8 years ago and his son is in Califormia in an institution.After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account.
