Now I'm seeing people can get their money back they lost over the internet. How do you do that even if the accounts weren't yours to begin with? Hi, I have met many scammers on line, They normally sweet talk you for months on end. Then say after 3 months they come up with all kinds of excuses about why they need cash.
One chap claimed he was on a oil rig and His expensive digger equipment fell into the sea. As soon as I said I had no funds, He disappeared into thin air. Another chap in New York, claimed he lost his wallet, he left it in a cafe apparently. So I said did you report it to the police? Another time the same chap "William Koch" claimed that he was in hospital and needed funds for a operation. Another us army officer claimed his son was ill and needed cash to help him. All these men disappear once they realise there is no money for them.
I find British men are even worse, because a lot seem to take pride in showing their private parts off. Its a shame that there is not a sex site where men pay up front before being rude and offensive to women. It makes it very difficult to meet a true genuine partner. So I recently started talking to a woman from Ghana who found my profile on a site We have video chatted a few times on Hangouts and it is the same person in the pics that were sent to me It took a couple of weeks before I was asked for money to pay for a passport renewal Then for a medical examination to be able to leave the country.
Reluctantly I sent the money with her promising to send me proof which she has done. Now though she is telling me that there is a police background check that she has to do and after that she can travel here to the states I have told her that I can not send anymore money as I am behind on bills and still getting my life together from a divorce earlier this year, she then says ok no worries and that she will figure it out Has not asked for any more money but still talks to me everyday and still video calls me I thought at first it was a scam but then little things seemed to real to be fake.
It has been 4 days since I told her no and she still gets ahold of me to talk and get to know each other better. She says her name is Sherry Walker and I have seen that name on scam reports but with different pictures and what not Keep in mind I have seen her quite a few times because we do video chat and is the same person in the pictures that have been sent Has anyone else here been contacted by a 27yr old with a certificate in accounting from Ghana named Sherry Walker? Not sure what to do as I am not sending anymore money and she says she will figure it out Should I wait to see if she really does come up with it and comes here or should I cut her off?
Other than the passport renewal nothing has been a flag and like I said she is willing to come up with costs on her own Is this normal in scams? Usually the scammers are using prerecorded videos of a nice woman, and are playing that video for you. And always it is some trouble with the webcam's microphone, so you could never conversate with the spoken word with "her". You could easy check if the Hangout is in realtime.
The internet scammer who loved me (not) | Life and style | The Guardian
Ask "her" to put "her's" one, or both hands somewhere on "her's" face. If she wouldn't do that, or ask if you don't trust "her", then "she" is surely a guy playing with your feelings. And don't get involved in further converstion. Remember also that when you are showing yourself on webcam, the scammer is surely recording you, to use your video to scamm other people, possible a lonely women.
So take precasuion that "she" is not prerecorded, before show yourself on a webcam. Watch out for military or police women. Or any make that says he is a Legionnaires.. I am one we where taught from selection to lie and steal. If a woman will not look up what your Regement is she real? Most soldiers will not give there picture out No Legionare will give his picture.
It is not right to our Code of Conduct. And as I have said before, military personnel have financial backers, even if it is by mates. And when my uncle did die, The Legion was going to send me home And not on a CF A real airline, and I was in Chad when that happened, so I know that, but if a Canadian is not polite, not a Canadian! No Canuk talks like than unless we are playing stupid to a Yanky. This has happened with me too!
What should I do? She is a scammer I should know I have used by a guy using ericrodi on instagram for money he has destroyed my life My name is Debbie from NY if you just want to talk my instagram is princessme send friend request t. Ericrodi is a scammer from Lagos Nigeria who has hurt me deeply his real name is Eric Olu akande. He is not white like what he said my name is Debbie on instagram I am Missghettoville if you want to reach me.
Dude the worst for me was a Ghana chick, or being on Victoria Hearts. Now my own profile is being used to scam women. And I hate that. She phoned me at Every single thing I wanted and lusted after she could fulfil. Did she like other women? Oh yes and she gave me some Oscar winning sex talk.
Did she like me? We met up and she was beyond beautiful a clone of the pop singer Amii Stewart. What could possibly go wrong? What gave it away? A total lack of any respect for my time, breaking appointments, not keeping her word, having excuses for everything and finally her blaming me when she was in the wrong. I've just been scammed by a guy he payed me compliments and told me he loved me and I believed him I fell in love with him stupidly had cybersex with him and told him a lot of info I got suspicious after he asked for money and he kept saying his phone battery was dying and he often left the conversation after I would not give him what he wanted the money the I tunes card he so wants I told him I can't afford to and I was depressed from him blanking me and making me feel guilty don't fall for it it's all crap block them please don't them get in to your heart and do what it's done to me I'm now so depressed and heartbroken a mess save yourself before it gets to serious.
I know in my heart he is a scammer but then I question myself. He asked me for a gift card and then to help with money and back to school supplies. I refused each time and blocked him on Hangouts but he texted me and promised he would never ask me for money again so I unblocked him. It has got pretty steamy between us and he has sent me pictures of his private parts but I have refused to send any nude photos of myself.
Is there any harm just going along with it for fun? I met this guy on the dating site a month a go. He said he is currently deployed i Nigeria. Just the way goes on getting to know each other process asking such questions. He said he was divorsed having a 3 year old daughter. He said he ia from SD. His deployment will end this Oct. He also mentioned he was just connecting to his roommate's wifi. He call each other everyday via whatsapp but no video, since he saod is banned.
I told him i could not raise it. He wanted me to send money to his commanders info. I said i cannot, he gave me a bitcoin code rather. Hope someone can check for me; I got his pictures that he sent if that is really him. Is this a scam. Soldiers make enough money I used to be one I know this, and we have financial assistance.
My problem is I use my original email account. I get blamed as being a scammer and even blocked sometimes I've had a very similar experience. My scammer is in the Italian Army based in Poland on deployment until next November. I sent nothing and stopped all contact. I've also reported this to the online fraud team here in the U. And closed down all my social media accounts as they had some personal data about me. How can I block someone that I think is trying to scam me on my email chat without this person knowing it hes always asking me to send him money,I think he also has a fake marriage certificate made up wanting me to sign of which I have refused I have refused to send any money but how can I block this person without him knowing it,he has lead me to believe he wants to marry me.
Never use your real and private e-mail when you are conversating with people you have never met. Register a new e-mail at Gmail, Hotmail or Yandex, only for "dating" purpose. Within a month, I have had two men try scamming me. The first ones' name was Francis P. He began by asking me to email him. He then asked me to close my dating site account, I am assuming that was to test my willingness to trust him.
He always said he had work to do and couldn't meet with me but I e would soon. He then only emailed and texted me when he only lived 20 mins away. He "couldn't" even meet me for coffee. He then tells me the next week that he will be in Germany for 6 weeks. He said both his biological parents were Italian, then why was his last name William. I seriously doubted he would be in any type of witness protection program.
Btw, he told me he loved me within the first couple days. Sent me pictures of his kids, everything. He video chatted with me for 50 seconds two or three times. Everyday his emails became more affectionate and racy. Finally around the third week he tells me a part for work was shipped broken and he had to gather as much money as possible to pay for a new one. I also found a pic he sent me, he said HE took this pic. I found it on the internet. I reported him to the FBI. THEN, shortly after that, I got involved with another piece of garbage. The name he used was Michael Asare. The picture was great, but later that night when he sent another photo it didn't match.
Before that, he once again, asked me for my password, so that he could cancel my dating site. I said I will do it as its no big deal to reinstate on match. On the website it said, ND. I then asked him where he lived he said FL. He then said he was on business in Ghana. Had nasty attitude cuz I asked. Actor he thought he had smoothed things over he asked for my address.
I gave him someone else's address. He said he had a surprise for me. I acted all excited. As we were talking I am conducting research about him. Found 46 hits on a scammer website. I then cursed him out and called him a scammer and told him I was going to report him. I too have had the lovely pleasure of such scam artists. One a guy who was on an oil rig He never asked for money but wanted me to apply for him to come home on a leave The third is hard on me Was time to come home but government there wanted him to pay the income tax on the projected earnings before he left Good thing I am poor because I didn't have the money to send and told him so.
All three were sure I was the gal for them and that we would be together one day! OMG , I think you and i were scammed by the same guy. This guy had salt n pepper colored hair and a goatee. The first guy you mentioned Did he go by the name Gary Osmond? Wife died of breast cancer. On oil rig as a seismic interpretor? Has a son he leaves with nanny but won't say nanny's name. Yes, I was recently scammed by a man who claimed to be American.
He told me he was a civil engineer working in South Africa. He told me his wife had died from cancer. He also told me he wanted to marry me. I always suspected something was wrong. He asked for money help on the last e-mail. I called my sister and she reminded me it was a scam. I still had feelings for him, until that day. Please, be careful ladies. Scammers are looking for female victims, you say? Most scammers that have victimized me have been young females.
I met girl online skout app she gave me phone number I rang her she real she gave telegram messenger app we text each other all she wanted my money I look up Facebook no profile She want me transfer money into bank account she said she loves me want me is she scamming me money. I'm writing because I have concerns that my aunt is currently being romanced by a scammer. She's 69, overweight, been divorced over 10 years, and hasn't dated at all in that time.
She does have a 19 yr old daughter and has prob poured her time into that. But, she started talking to a guy on Our time. Within a couple days of making a profile. She's never been on a dating site before. He also has told her he will be traveling to Mexico soon for work.

I think she said he has a scrap metal business. She ate that up.

He says he has a sister that has cancer here in Alabama that he says he helps care for. He has a foreign accent, speaks broken English, and says his family is of German descent. He is younger, attractive, has photos he has sent her of a red Mercedes in front of a large home and of him driving a boat.
I Google image searched all of his photos with little luck. But, 2 of the photos matched seemingly fake LinkedIn profiles for a man with a different name. The guy on the profiles lives in LA, has a master's in engineering from Oxford, and is an account executive at the World Bank for 45 yrs. So, I sent those profiles to my aunt and she is supposedly done with him.
Well he convinced her his former business partner embezzled all of his assets and scammed him. He told her that is also why he has no social media presence. She totally believes it. We have tried to get her to video chat with him or to ask for a photo with her name and the date on it. I think she wants to continue living in Lala land. We just don't know how to get through to her. The guy in the pictures is way too attractive and young for her, so she probably doesn't want to mess it up is my guess.
I was like you've given him your address to send you a Teddy Bear and even if he is the guy in the photos he could be a criminal, convicted sex offender, etc. She says "he's so genuine and honest". If I Google image search doesn't find the pictures you are researching, use the other reverse imaging sites, as yandex. I have found that you have to use all three search enginees, to get the best chance to find any unknown photos.
Remember also that make a new search some days after the first search. The image that the search sites find, is updated regulary. Hi, I had this guy, who suddenly appear in my facebook sending me a friend request.. I checked his fb profile, and saw only very few post..
He told me, if we can chat on hangouts, so i said ok.. He is a widower, he has a 12 yr old son.. I was shocked because we did not know each other well..
I told him that I have a bf, and he never mind about it.. He said he was si busy, he only gets a vacation once every 4months.. I even uninstalled my hungots so that he cant disturb me anymore Yes that's a scammer.. Very good you spotted that he was from Nigeria. Everything else he told you was a lie. I got a women from Nigeria telling me she was searching and find me and thought it would be nice to get to know me. I didn't think nothing of it until she started to love me already.
It's been 1 month into this. Who ever is behind all of this has spent a lot of money in data. She contacts me every day. She's a student, works at salon and runs jewelry business as well. The read Flag was that she said some guys came into the studio and said for , nira she could get a visa to US. You see all this is false the price is less than 60, Nira.
I feel like this is such a waste of time. Then she send me a copy of her Nigerian passport. I have notice that it has errors in the spelling and birth year is looks like it was made from the number 6 instead of 9. Goes to show you what they would do for the money. I confronted her about all of this but she said what am I talking about.
I doubt she's be coming here real soon. Because they never do, if you don't pay for it but even if you do they still won't come because they no you will keep sending the money. Why leave your country to go and see the guy or girl sending you money for hopes, dreams and non-visit.. I therefore ask "her" to buy a webcam. And that I am pausing our conversation til I can see the person I am chatting with.
Some of the "women" told me that they are working for UN i Syria, U. S Army and aren't allowed to use any webcam. A funny "woman" asked me to send money to her, to buy a webcam. S, but we're living in U. I told her that I will buy her a webcam through a Internet-shop in U. K directly, if she give me her address where it could be delivered. But she insisted that she wanted me to send money. But I had some success.
At last, I meet a local girl, to my surprise, living in my neighborhood. Beware of a scammer using the name Katie Morgan claiming to live in Orlando Florida and has a daughter named Vera. This person will swear her undying love and may refer to you as her "King". If you say you're done with her she'll say she's going to commit suicide. May even tell you she's either in the hospital or just got out of the hospital. I was caught in a romance scam for over a year. This person told me they lived in another state but would not call. Money was sent to this person several thousand dollars, as they told me they were divorced after her ex abandoned her and her daughter.
After six months of being lied to this person "came clean" and told me her daughter was living with her aunt in the US and that her ex abandoned her in Nigeria with nothing but her luggage. Then I was told it had met a lady that she'd became good friends with named Nneka and that I could send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka.
That was the final straw and I've since stopped talking to this person and changed my phone number. The're out there they want your money because they're the winner you are the loser. They have their own song about. Never give them money, they will do everything they can to get your money. I smart they will never get it. I would like to see one of them actually fly here. Western Union is suppose to ask you how long you know this person and protect you from sending the money.
You don't know this girl she's a fake and lair. They just want the money nothing else matters just the money! Are you really trying to offer another scam on an article that talks about how to be aware of scams? Recommend deleting this post above. In this article they suggest a search, for someone you think may be trying to scam you, says the search is free The next screen asks for a credit card number and which option you'd like to use??
Why did the previous screen say 'free' if it's not actually free. That sounds like a scam right there. Google Reverse Image Search https: Yandex Reverse Image Search https: Bing Reverse Image Search http: TinEye Reverse Image Search https: I'm in contact with a orthopaedic doctor, who tells me his in Ukraine, we've been chatting every day for some time now. He constantly tells me how much i mean to him, but don't they all? Since joining a dating site, think I've had more scammers than hot dinners. I chat with him on viber, what should I do? Sounds like the best thing to do is just cease all contact.
All of that sounds like typical scam techniques, and it'll be easier to just cut off all communication. Wow that sounds very much like the man I've been talking to I met him on CatholicMatches. If he doesn't get the money he will lose the contract and not get paid for all his time, efforts and hard work and will not get paid as they will reassign the contract elsewhere. I could go on but it sounds like we're taking to the same man Beverly that sounds a lot like this guy that is communicating with me.
Brian Reynolds with a heavy accent. Needed an iTunes card to continue to chat since his phone card was getting low and couldn't leave his job site to buy one. There are a million of them out there. Sounds like a man I met on Match. He is on an oil rig and lost some equipment. Wanted me to send money to help pay for it. Now he is asking me to send money to help his daughter supposedly. Hmmm wonder if he is the same man.
Reading these posts I'm shocked to see how much scamming seems to be "a thing" now days. I've had two attempts made on me in the last 3 months; and luckily I didn't fall for it. I met the first one on FB and only accepted his friend request because we had a friend in common. I went to his timeline to see who the friend was, and it was a childhood friend I've known since the 3rd grade. Strategies forge the season 2, episode review, we have listed the top five important.

Oh and what is it with the iTunes cards? This guy even sent me his Military ID! Mine was huge money taken away from me. Im lost but thanks that I have God with me. HE is more than enough to start all over again. I gave up all my savings and retirement - communication had been going on for 1 year. I am bankrupt, devastated and ashamed. This sounds similar to the guy I've been talking to he says he's in the U. He originally sent me a Facebook request which I accepted and within a week was telling me he loved me and wanted to but a house together.
He claims he had to borrow a friends phone to talk to me. He never called me because he claimed the phone lines were terrible there due to the rebels attacks. He had in the beginning sent me 2 pics that were older plus a pic I got from his fb request. He never would send any others even though I asked repeatedly.. The pics I did get were of a white male dark hair wearing a shirt that says good story babe now make me a sandwhich he's in shorts that say army on them with a background which looks like a military environment.
Then he sent a pic of himself supposedly The Facebook pic is of him sitting on a bench in a room with a black fitted knit hat on sunglasses on his head he's got a gun in a holster at his side..

Does any of this sound familiar. Do you happen to have a photo of this guy, sounds similar to who I'm chatting with now. This guy sounds similar to the guy I'm talking to. Since we can't share pics on here can you discribe the pics he sent. Describe him and the background of the pics? Your story just saved me. I've been chatting with a guy who called himself Tyler Badon for several weeks now.
His story was almost identical to the one your guy gave you. The only major difference is that I am gay, so it was an ex-boyfriend who cheated on him and treated him so badly. And now he is in Afghanistan and lonely, without family, etc. He first contacted me on Instagram and then moved our discussion to Google Hangouts. I got all the undying love crap. He even sent me a little video of himself working out at the gym. And I had the same experience with questions. He asked me a zillion questions about all sorts of nonsense.
But when I asked him for details about his previous life in the states or even his life in Afghanistan , he would just ignore them and disappear. Tonight, for the first time, he asked me if I could send him an iTunes gift card so that he could download music that reminded him of me for when he was lonely and bored. I had never done that before, and I was searching for advice on how to send a gift card on a chat platform when I stumbled upon your story. After reading it, I went back to the chat session we were having and I told him I needed to send the gift card by postal service.
Of course, he would not give me his address. So I blocked him from Google communications services and Instagram. I feel like such an idiot. But I am eternally grateful that you shared your story. You kept me from going down what might have been a very costly path. I wish there was some way we could warn others about these schmucks. Or, even better, get law enforcement involved and rounding up all the profiles until they capture the creeps.
Anyway, thanks again for sharing your story. I'll try not to be so gullible next time. I've been talking to this Tyler Badon for a few weeks now myself. Everything identical to what you have described. Yesterday is when he asked for an ITunes card which I did not send as it immediately seemed fishy. I'm proud of myself to see the red flags when I saw them but so embarrassed that I fell for everything else. MarkD, I think I may be talking to the same guy! He followed me on Instagram and asked to chat in Google Hangouts! He says that he is in the Army and stationed in Afghanstan. This man asked me for money o blocked him then my Facebook page got hacked so I went back to hangouts to tell him off, he started out saying oh god honey iwould not do that, then he got mean, and said i know where you stay I got people watching you.
You got 3 days to buy me a ITunes card or I am going to have you kill. The Foe followed me on Instagram and later sent me a message he immediate asked me to communicate w him over Google Hangouts and then said that his exit papers for the oil rig along w money were in a parcel in Belgiumand he wanted me to be the heir to help him get his parcel - Andre Chris He also goes by Andre Cristian declared his love to me told me he wanted to marry him and I said yes! People pls flee from these types of scammers.
The same thing happened to me the same story oil rig engineer Nelson Andre. Need money for shipment. He says he is working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico and his account has been on hold while he is away. His life is a serious of calamities. First it was money for his sick son, then his phone needed updated so I sent iTunes cards, then his son was robbed and needed a new laptop to continue his schooling.
Now he wants me to accept a package with money and precious jewels inside. I have told him many times no he gets angry and calls me names. He has my old address, email and phone number. Should I block this guy? If I send my email to you can you send me a picture of this guy? I think he is scamming me as well. I have been chatting with a man that sounds so similar too this, I too would be intrested in finding out if these two guys were one of the same. I could send you my email and we can exchange photos please. What is it about Portugal?
I was just scammed by a guy Out of Africa saying that he had to return to Portugal as his daughter was having immediate heart surgery. He made the mistake by saying that he was staying with his mother but in previous conversations he and said she was dead. MarkD, did the video in the gym show him lifting a an 80 pound dumbbell with his mid section? He has tattoos and had a ballcap on? Same thing happened to me he messaged me on IG says he lives in San Francisco and has a 5 year old son that is wIth the Nanny and right now he is in Italy working on a contract which closes on the 10th he asked for money to send to his Nanny cause he spent the money on the tools for the contract.
He told me his mom and dad died and that he is an only child of theirs.
He said the contract is worth millions. There are pictures of him inEurope. The guy is going bald and is scruffy with glasses. So my guy lives in France and is a contractor. He has a 12 year old son and lost his wife to cancer. His parents passed away as well. He is completing his contract and has invested all his savings on gold bars and is having them shipped to me so we can start a jewelry business.
He would send me pictures of himself in suits and even sent a few of him and his son working our. However I did start to notice that his pictures are not current. My mom was almost a victim of this idiot, naturally he was in love with her and wanted to marry her. You know the deal. Thankfully we found this page before he went any further with his lies.
We set him up, he called and talked to my mom while I was there listening to everything without him knowing. My mom already knew what he was after and led him to spit out his pretty little "send me money" story because he supposedly broke an oil machine. That's when I made the kill, took the phone and sent him to hell.
Told him we knew what he was doing and before he could even say something, I called him by all the names he used to scam other women. At least he was dumb enough to listen to all my cussing-- must confess it was satisfying. Obviously he ended the call but I sent him the link to this page and called him stupid. This guy claims to be german-american, he uses pictures of a middle-aged, caucasian-looking, military man whose pictures are nowhere to be find online.
