What Are You Thinking?

Never Go To Visit Someone You Only Met Online!

You Might Go In A Suitcase and Come Back In A Casket!

If you are going to meet someone, have them come to you!

More important however …



Many victims think that they can go to West Africa to recover their money. This is just another foolish fantasy on top of another bad decision.

The fact is that the number of “tourist” deaths in these countries are some of the highest in the world. Local police have no incentive to keep you safe, and corruption means that is easy for the police to be part of the risk.


Astoundingly, most victims believe that scammers are lazy shiftless individuals. Nothing could be further from the truth. Regardless of what you see in photos, scammers are mostly part of gangs. These gangs can have a handful of members or thousands. These are true organized criminals with the police (many times) in their pocket. Worse still is that at least 30% are actively financing and supporting ISIS or Al Qaeda Terrorists.


Here is a map of the most dangerous places on Earth for foreign travelers. So ask yourself: You were stupid once, are you being stupid again? Very likely. Stay home and stay safe.

The World Is A More Dangerous Place Than Ever!

    David Lopez Halfpenny is still at it trying to scam women. Dealing in gold, shop opening in London, granddaughter named Lilian, wife and daughter died 7 years ago in car accident and son-in-law in mental home! Off in Sardinia at the moment buying gold !! He will come up with the address of 1Buckland Close, Hull, HU8 9SU phone 0113 328 1317 mobile 07938 200660. When confronted that he is a scammer will say that his identity was stolen and used previously and he is not the scammer! Why can’t these guys be prosecuted one asks. His new email address is whitedove1012@gmail.com Latest development would like you to buy him a cologne that you think would be nice for him, you’d perfume so that he knows what you smell like and an Xbox for Lilian as he couldn’t get it before he went to Sardinia and it’s her birthday on the 13rh August but will pay you back as soon as he’s back from his trip!!
