Dating website photo scam
I have since sent messages to everyone on his "friends" list for that chat site warning them he is a scammer and NOT a true military Vet. She was being raised by a nun in the states but when I asked certain questions he didn't answer.
I just went through a similar situation through Instagram. He gave me some story about a sad upbringing and not having anyone to talk to. He had no parents as they left him on Church steps so he was raised by a priest.
Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims.
They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love. Victims may be embarrassed to talk about their experiences, but you can help.
A simple phone call, email or text, saying “Look what I just found” and sharing this information may make a difference in someone else’s life.
In reality, the scammers are Africans from Nigeria and Ghana.
Wish they could be caught half as easily as they seem to catch their would be victims.
I have been getting chatted up by a guy called Wilfred Joe, who claims to work on oil rigs and has a young son called Wilson.
He also had the money forwarded from Kenya or so he said. His name was Mathew Mc Cleary that was from Australia but talked with a Spanish accent. That’s fine and he never did ask me for money, just an i Tunes card.
I was at the airport waiting for him to arrive several times and he never showed. He was coming to see me but his crude oil shipment wouldn't ship because he had to pay insurance. Eventually he did ask if I would accept a check that a client owed him. I did think about it and said I would accept the check but I would not deposit it in my account. I went to the bank and asked them to check if it was legit.
