I have not been able to complete a report because my scammed experience was a year ago and I have deleted emails, pictures, phone numbers, and instant messages. I had a number of scammers working on me but one in Ghana was most disturbing. This was plane ticket and visa scamming that got way out of hand when demands for customs money and marriage license woke me up to the reality. I wish I could tell others to recognize this before they lose their money and dignity. Any younger (female) contacting a middle aged man from match or other internet dating site is a scam. I really like this site, keep up the good work!
ich bin bei lablue auf einen Betrüger aus Ghana reingefallen, er gibt sich als Robert Logan aus, reicher selbständiger Witwer aus Berlin, der angeblich ein Bürokomplex in Ghana baut, er flog deshalb nach Ghana da es Probleme mit der Baustelle gab und ich sollte ihm über Western Union Bank Geld überweisen das er zurück nach Berlin kann da er sein ganzes Geld für sein Projekt ausgab, das Geld sollte ich an Prosper Kekeli Gunu senden, aber ich tat es zum Glück nicht
i’ve scammed by “american man”. But i like to unveil the scammers, and i enjoy. This man said he wants marry me, etc etc, so he asked to me 5350 dollars, his name is “johnson daniels”. He sent me a false passport and a false drive license. Later, when I told him I understood everything, he told me he was Nigerian, his mother is dying and needs money. He kept telling he loves me and wants to marry me. He Continues to connect to viber. His cellphone number is this: 001 (904) 395-5067.
Now I’m talking to another “English” man who says he is in china for work and has an accident and is hospitalized. I asked him about her daughter to study nantes (he said he is widower), to ask me for money. In fact he asked for 500 euros for his daughter. Now i’m waiting he gives me the moneygram’s contact or anything else. I’ll keep you up-to-date.
I have never been scammed, as I have never been in that situation.. I read somewhere that when a person falls in love, a part of the brain, concerned with common sense and logic, becomes dull and diminished, which means that when ” Love ” strikes, people behave differently, than they normally would. I say this, because some people think, that people who allow themselves to be scammed, are idiots and gullible etc.. Most of us probably know that when you fall in love, you don’t see that person’s faults, at first. Love is blind, so to speak. These scammers, know exactly what to say to you, to make you fall in love with them, which can impair your judgement. They are devious and clever and intuitive, and know how to manipulate your emotions.. To people out there, who have been scammed, please, don’t reproach yourself. It isn’t your fault.There are evil and greedy people in this world, unfortunately, who prey on lonely people.
Amen, Jenny. I couldn’t have said it better myself. They are skilled and can read people like a book. Even intelligent gals like us can be fooled and hurt
A Friend of mine was being scammed by a man calling himself David McClean from CA. He is currently in Malaysia for a job. He has had one excuse after another why he can’t leave. $12k later she contacted the Embassy and found out she was being scammed. She met him through Plenty O Fish.
I do not know this name but I know much of this story and was scammed via Match.com. I wish I had been wiser to how sophisticated these rings are. I knew Steve (n) Pieters who also was known by Gerrard Hann Ulrich or Carr. Many women have posted on various scam sites about their experiences so if you do a search, you can find their stories and mine. It’s very expensive and painful to be naïve. I can spot a scammer from a mile away now. Blessings to all.

I believe a friend is being Romance Scammed. She met a man called Alren Mesave or Allen Mesave on a Romance site. She sold her condo believing he was a Millionaire and working with the government on a secret mission on a oil rig in the Atlantic Ocean. She has sent him the proceeds from the sale of the condo and also cashed in a Insurance Policy. He keeps putting off when he is coming because his work is “Top Secret”. She believes he is going to share his 2 1/2 Million with her and take her to Hawaii on their honeymoon. Have you ever heard of this guy?.
please report the scammer using our report forms not as a comment

Just let me know. I have come across many SCAMMERS.
Excellent, please report them all.
Hello Guys. I just recently sent you info about A SCAMMER who called herself Tina Adams or Tina Cares. I just looked her up through google images and I found out that Tina Cares Adams is actually Angie Varona Legal from instagram and whoever she is allowing to use her image to lure victims like myself. She almost got me until she refuse to give me the location from where she lives and of course when she asked for $350.00 after she mysteriously lost her wallet with all of her money in it. So I hope that I contributed in some why of ridding another SCAMMER. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance. I have come across quite a few SCAMMERS and can find and get them for you if you like.
Altough I have never fallen for a scammer, I have had some experience I would like to share with the ladies. Beware of men who claim to be recently widowed and have a daughter or a son. They usually tap into some sob stories about being lonely and now they try to make contact with honest women again. They often contact you via Facebook, saying something nice about your profile pic. Hit the delete button as quick as you can. One man once contacted me and he seemed nice, so I encountered a casual conversation. What he did not know was, that I am bilingual – he first wrote to me in German, telling me he is from Britain. So I told him, I can easily swich into English, which he did and his “letters” were full of typos and errors – so no native speaker there. I tried to lure out more information, then he told me about his wife “who sadly passed away, leaving him with a daughter all alone” booohoooo. I am telling this, because I have had several men contacting me this way. So my advice: hit the delete button. And to all of you from RomanceSamcsNow – thanks for the good work you do!
Hi, I got this site I got into and there this girl not sure she’s scammer? She calls herself Mary Williams and stuck in Kuala Lumpur with her grandmother, and tells me all right things and known her for three weeks and now she’s wanting me to help her to get back to states and afraid that I will hurt her etc she lost her mom last year and her father when she was 15 and need to get back to states to her lawyer that her parents left her estate worth 5.7 million and if I help her she ll pay me back, and live well off with her etc she s has master degree in accounting and can’t get job there due to her overstay and passport expired so I don’t know if she’s real or scammer thanks
Understand. So there are a ton of Nigerians operating in Malaysia. They follow the standard emergency scams. So, first ask for lots of proof. Paperwork proof, scan of the passport. A U.S. citizen can get a replacement passport and return assistance from the U.S. Embassy, without you sending money. Call the local Embassy with her details and setup an appointment. Try to force everything through them. You can get the Embassy details from the U.S. Dept. of State website. I “she”freaks out at the suggestion that you are going to work through the embassy, then you know she is a scammer. You said she lives in KL metro area, then the embassy is right there, she could walk if needed. See how that progresses. You can also send assistance through the embassy’s consular section instead of Western Union, so she has to show up there to pick it up, with proper ID. This is true anywhere in the world.
Hey I did what u suggested, she freaked out saying things like I already gone there twice and she s been overstay for 15 years and her passport expired but got it renewed and afraid police will arrested her cuz of her overstay in the country too long and doesn’t want me to call them again but I told her from the beginning I’m hard of hearing I don’t do phone, I didn’t tell her at that moment and waited for her response she just keep going on about police and need to clean her overstay etc which don’t make sense and I offered to give her money thru embassy she said she doesn’t want to do that cuz she’s afraid police will arrest her for overstaying in country??
You have your answer. Scammer!
I would like to add to Jeremy since you mention that you’re hard of hearing like myself, Most scammers always come up with so many excuses to avoid doing what you want when you know for sure that they’re nothing but a liars.
Just from reading what you just told about her right off I saw all the warning signs. The one that get me is if she got that much money left by her so so father or mother. Then why not use the money to get out and yet it doesn’t make any sense about her reasons for not getting her hands on the money. Why did she stay there for 15 years that should of been the warning signs… She must of love it there otherwise she would of been in USA.
my brother is currently being scammed.. sounds much like the lie he is getting fed.. His person says she is sculpturist stranded in Nigeria.. the latest lie, was just that, that her grandparents have died, and left her a large sum of money, to get a hold of this “lawyer” and to set up an account for these funds to be transferred into this account. MONEY LAUNDERING.. we as a family were able to squash, that part thank goodness, now it is about having an expired pass port, and needing 800+ to “process the paperwork”

Another Scammer trying to get me to pay 700 USA Dollars for her to go to the UK, but promises to repay it all back, and just found out on here she looks like some porn star as yourselves :
Her so called name is Euricia Grant
Just completed a report. From Facebook Josie Ann Miller’s stolen pics appear now as “Michelline Larenn” from France but supposedly now in Mali. Big into Skype and asked for money to “help her eat better.” Still messaging me and even tried to call me on Skype today twice. Had a feeling a hot girl out of the blue on FB interested in me from overseas was sketchy. While on Skype she asked for money. I asked her while on video to wave and shake her foot. She asked me why? Also claims she has no microphone. I try to paste fb addresses and info not working but hopefully my report will help.
