Hey, me,too. Started okay, then the bad english/,grammar/,spelling started. Said he was “italia n only in country 4 yrs” extremely extremely quickly progressed to i loves you an want to engage me. Bu y you Mercedes bend. Thought it fun to play along, sort-of so I could do this. Waiting for the asking for money, knew it was coming. Said he not in country now, in yemen, working some job related to oil. 1st, expensive pipe broke, next some machine broke. Now he’s stuck there, broke, all his money gone, and please send him some to fix problem and get him home to engage me, buy me mercedes. Promise I not be disappointed, pay me back right away when he returns. How much? Well, I got to pick; $10,000, $8,000or $7,000. I offered to send $100.00, where to send?, Some embassy. I told him to send pic of his passport so I got info correct. Omg- embassy holding it. Who’,d of thunk??? Ok, send pic of drivers license (remember he drove Mercedes bend). No reply, which by the way, was ALWAYS the response if information would ‘out him’. I kept refusing to send money, 1st asked cause he love me.Then cause if I love him. Then I never trust him ever. Then keep you money, I stay here afraid. Then it quickly progressed to bullying. I told him I knew the plan, he asked what plan and I told him trying to scamScam A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime - is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost. me out of as much money as possible in the shortest time possible. He told to just forget everything because he no like way you talk to me. Obviousy, they all follow the same script. They may twe ek it a bit here and there, but it is all the same. Ladies, be aware, a LOT of you are falling for this crap.
OMG! I’m SO Glad I found you! This is the SEVENTH time I’ve been approached by a scammerScammer A Scammer or Fraudster is someone that engages in deception to obtain money or achieve another objective. They are criminals that attempt to deceive a victim into sending more or performing some other activity that benefits the scammer.. I am grateful to be so poor that they can’t get anything from me even if they tried. I’ve always figured them out before they get a chance to reveal their true game, but this time I’m going to try to see what they ask for before telling them to F**k off. I may have blown it already by telling him (“Paul Anderson, Skype ID : admsapul383, email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone number : 661 524 6581, The pic he used:
that I’m old, poor and disabled, but we’ll see. I thought I had fool-proofed my online connections by insisting that I talk live on Skype with them. This guy somehow made a Skype call with what seemed to be a live chat, but the vid was very fuzzy and the voice DID NOT fit the face! He looks like someone from Andy of Mayberry but sounds like a Rastafarian. I did a search of his pictures, no result. I Googled his name, address, the company in Bulgaria he said he was procuring gem stones through. (Could this actually be a Bulgarian scammer?) Nothing showed up. But I did notice a typo in the document and wondered if it’s possible that a multi million dollar company can’t afford a grammar checker. He even sent a picture of the contract document he claims he was working on, showing that he was going to make nearly a million dollars from this job. I was an English teacher, so I noticed that the grammar mistakes were always the same. Is it the same guy or a different one every time? (WHY ME??/ WHY IS IT ALWAYS MEEEE???)
I finally Googled some of the lovey-dovey crap he wrote, like, “I just want a woman to hold before I’m old.” Or ” I need a rigger for a trigger.” [WTF?] That’s how I was able to confirm that not only was he a scammer, but a plagiarizer as well. And how I found you.
Once scammers identify a victim, they place your contact info in their harvesting lists and share them around their organization. So they will contact you repeatedly until you learn to
