You are correct english is my 3 language is that an problem for you ?

The reason I doubt the scammer is within this country as for the Nigeria connection ,secondly West-African scammers often tries to lure their victims into believing they are in US or UK in their scenarios ,it is a scam tactic that is unfortunately successful as people rather dates and meets people people with in this country and for the scammers it is a better way to hide under.


So you don't think any scammers are from the U.S.?

Yes there are scammers here in USA that can be accomplices in scams also ,but it is connected with an bigger risk to be caught also.But in this case and with the most scams with these kind of scenarios reported onto this site and other anti scam sites I believe the most part of the scams with scenarios as white males connection West -Africa are operated out of Nigeria or Ghana .

Where did you sent the money ? What address and in what name ? Was it trough a bank account ,Western Union or Money gram?

The surname is a americanised as Swedish surnames are written with an double S ,so it is just another scam trick in this case .I see reports on other sites as for phone numbers used in the scams Phone: 011447872282487 and 011447700053530 both phone number types are used especially by scammers from Nigeria ,they are luring people into make people believe they are in UK but are in fact in Nigeria ,these are forwarded UK phone numbers to Nigeria .So did the scammer had a US phone number ? Did he use a address within this country ?

I only want to help you out to understand these kind of scams and also help other women who are in contact with these kind of scammers that they will be warned and hopefully not get scammed ,so please provide all the information here ...

Yes he gave me a phone number for Wichita, KS 316-854-5306 but he never called me from it because he was already in London. Why can't a UK phone number also be re-routed back to the U.S.? What you said about seeing him on Skype... if it's pre recorded how can he interact with us? I did not talk to him because I don't have a webcam. We talked through Yahoo Messenger while I saw him typing the answer to my questions. How could he answer my questions if it's pre recorded? With Carrie she asked him to pick up his computer and let her see his room. How could he do that if it's pre recorded? He may not be from Sweden but he spoke to us with a Swedish accent. Anyone can use an accent when speaking with someone else. Actors and actresses do it all the time. There are too many times when he couldn't email me because the internet wasn't working for him and on his Facebook it shows he was out that night with his friends. How would a scammer, not him, know when he was going out that night to say he could not get on the internet

To answer your questions : I have put your questions in quotes and my answer after ...I hope it helps


Yes he gave me a phone number for Wichita, KS 316-854-5306 but he never called me from it because he was already in London.


The scammer is not here in USA at all,you have the answer on this one now ..The Wichita number is a spoofed landline number by scammers which African scammers do very often .Please read article in the link about forwarded and redirected phone numbers ..

http://tinyurl.com/993p9ak

Why can't a UK phone number also be re-routed back to the U.S.?
Yes it can be forwarded to where ever in the world ...What I want to explain for you is that when these kind of phone numbers appears it is always a scam with West-Africans .


if it's pre recorded how can he interact with us?

This is how scammers fools people with ..they are smart and are sophisticated and has knowledge how computers works out ,many of the scammers has University degrees in computer science ..

I did not talk to him because I don't have a webcam. We talked through Yahoo Messenger while I saw him typing the answer to my questions How could he answer my questions if it's pre recorded?


I talked only about the skype sessions ,you cannot pre record chat messengers of course ,scammers do copy and paste poems and parts from love letters into the messenger as sometimes scammers are really bad in their english and do not want to be discovered in this way ..this is how you can many times discover it is a scam when the language skill difference is to obvious between the mails and the chats .


There are too many times when he couldn't email me because the internet wasn't working for him and on his Facebook it shows he was out that night with his friends How would a scammer, not him, know when he was going out that night to say he could not get on the internet


Thats a scammer that lies to you and to other victims too,the reason is the scammer is using internet cafes to connect with their victims and where the scams are made from ..the accounts on Facebook and email accounts are also shared with others scammers as scammers basically operates in gangs ,you have probably talked with more than 1 scammer in this case scammers scams in shifts ,they are available 24-7 scammers never sleeps remember that ,they are criminals ..scammers scams upto 100 victims in the same time ...

This is why I know you are dealing with a Nigerian scammer ,the signs are to obvious for me but for a person that do not know how these scammers operates it can be very hard to understand all this ..I have spent the last 4 years to do researches on scammers and also baited scammers ,I am my self a victim once too ,so this is how I know these things ,it is only to help you out guys not fall for these vicious scams ...

This Donald Stephenson was in contact with me just recently.He set me up in 1month time frame,we
started to communicate in Oct 30,2013 and broke off Nov.30,2013.I was not aware at first,he was to
amorous and kind,but later on the 3rd week of our email exchange,he started to act very unusual.
He introduce himself as from US, an engineer,and shifted business to importation of goods from UK.Thats
why at the moment he was in UK doing his purchases of goods.But later on,as soon he finishes hes buying he needs to go back to US and needs to ship his goods.At this point he told me that hes goods was stock at the UK custom because he was short with money to tax his shipment and he was asking money from me for 8550 pounds.I did not send him cos,he is a stranger to me and besides I dont have that amount.He is very insistent,convincing me hes sympathetic status.Before that,I had only one time video chat with him at Yahoo messenger, but never I heard his voice cos he told he has no mic.Mostly we communicated via email with his email address as sdonald004@yahoo.com.also give me his tel.no 01144 787 228 2487 but I never called him in this no.and he did not also called me in my no.I gave.With the money he was asking he is persuading me,explaining that,quote,.. if I dont send him money it will cost his life..and hes 1.5M cos the UK custom will sieze his goods, if he cant pay the tax due quote.I did not really send him money cos Im suspicious already,and I wrote him email telling my doubts that he is a scammer.And he got angry with me and spoke bad words to me and I became at fault for not helping him.Until just recently,I already broke off with him.And to my amazement when I discover this page, reporting that he is a real SCAMMER.Thank you very much,for this information.This report is very helpful to me.

This Donald Stephenson is currently in touch with me now using the same story of being an engineer and changing his profession to the importation of goods to the USA. He also gave me one of the phone numbers you have listed which n I told him I could not possibly afford ti ring. He contacted me through him/her dating a site which I have tried on several occasions to wipe my profile. I have also been contacted on skype by at least 8 people using John Mageau's pictures and know that they are all scammers as I have been in touch with the real John Mageau and he told me that this has been going on for the past 6 years and nothing can be done about it.

I wished I would have done my research before sending money but it is too late for me but this might help others. He is also using the name Donald Norberg and his friend Robert has this phone number 216-452-8449. He is using email address ndonald005@gmail.com.
He ask me to wire 6200 pounds to:
Account Name: Dorothy K. chadwell
Bank Name : Credit Union Plus
Account Number : 26562000
Routing Number : 272476912
Bank Address: 415 Washington Avenue.Bay City, MI 48708
Bank Phone : 989-893-2831
After he received the money this is part of the email I received:
I just got back from Michael office now, Cos he asked me to come so that I can meet up with the lawyer after his meeting with the customs. He said is not something he could explain to me over the phone. Honey, There is good news and bad news. The good news is that, they were able to stop the demurrage from adding up, so right now as it stands, it is 22,080.00 pounds cos another 920 was added today noon. The bad news is that it comes with condition. They made me understand that it was not easy getting to this team. They said, I will be in the customs tomorrow morning to sign some document on when I will make the payment for the demurrage available, and it must not exceed 4 weeks, or have the demurrage running for another 3 months and after 3 month if I don't pay up, my shipment will be confiscated. So, I have two options now. It’s either to sign tomorrow with a date I must not miss and it has to fall in between the next 4 weeks. Or leave the demurrage to run and I can come pay whatever the amount it will be and have my goods but only for 3 months. I hope you understand what I am trying to explain now cos I am not just in the right state of mind at the moment. I don't even want to be here for even one more week, cos it not easy for me, paying bills for the guest house, running around and feeding. If not for the extra you sent to me,
