Thank You so Much for what you're doing and I am so pleased to hear you are catching these scammers before they can get here. I myself believe my scammer was scamming another and just took a chance to write saying that stuff even though his picture is on here and Tom Erol, but he used others names as I had written on that post. God Bless ED: Your kind words are very much appreciated! Right now he's supposed to be working in Nigeria, and got hurt and now supposed to be going to London. Im praying that people will use common sense and that God would expose them for the liers they are. He said he was from Long Beach California, working as an independent contractor for oil rigging companies, 57 years old, a widower with a 15 year old daughter who was at a boarding school in London. His english wasn't the best, which I thought was strange for an engineer who was supposedly educated at Stanford University, but I forgave that because he said he was originally from Mexico City. He was very attentive, asked lots of questions and seemed genuinely interested in me. No friends showing but several women "liked" his comments. Not sure it is a good idea to tell them about this site. For everyone of us that got out without giving them anything but our time, we are the lucky ones. I just received a call from our local florist telling me that the gentleman with a Dutch or German accent placed the order.
Mine was, he asked for money for his daughter in boarding school in Michigan. He paid me lots of compliments and said nothing inappropriate or stupid. One in particular responded with a comment that she was glad family was important to him. But, they cross us off their lists and go on to the next one. He gave a fake address in NJ, and paid for my flowers with a stolen AMEX account. He has Facebook account under Larry Richards, Larry Richard,and Larry Serdar. I think I've met a scammer too, although he got nothing from me. Currently in Turkey, and due to the ISIS attacks these few days, his equipments was damaged.
Somehow it led me to your site and I read previous posts that sounded very familiar. I too thought that I had finally met the man of my life. Evan Gilmore, supposedly from Denver, divorced single dad with 2 teenagers.
After that I decided to see if I could Google him as he said he had an office in Long beach. He claimed that he fell in love with me madly from day 1.
I couldn't find him so I Googled his name with oil rigger. And he's so so sweet everyday with the calls and texts.
That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. We all make mistakes, thats why we are on this site to begin with. Good looking guy but his profile was devoid of anyone else besides him. I blocked him and he emailed me ( stupidly I gave him my email) and replied in broken English "he was hurt and very interested in me. " I sent him the link to this site so hopefully he is reading our comments. A scoundrel in the truest sense -dishonest; manipulative and who knows how dangerous. I could not believe that many could find me randomly. It said He could not accept anymore games as this player was at his limit. Words With Friends is the only game Engineers in the oil industry know how to play. However they want you to go to Hangouts through gmail. He had a 12 year old "daughter" writing to me calling me mom.
I showed him a copy of his ip trace.said I would die - be killed. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him. Lets not work against each other but work together to stop them. I'm going through a bad patch in my life right now, recently separated from my husband, moved out of state, and looking for friends, so I thought he looked nice and so I accepted his request. They are so secure in what they do that it does not matter. I realized it could be him or his friends so I changed my user name and it all stopped. I too received a dozen roses, two boxes of expensive chocolate, and a teddy bear he named Larry so he could sleep with me each night.
He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. His name is Tony Richards and he has a 15 year old daughter in boarding school in Italy. This has gone on for 16 months and the guy still got in touch with me last week wishing me a happy new year and that he would be home with me soon haha.
