My sister was almost scammed by this guy on Then we checked out his photo on, and found out this identical picture was also associated with Desmond West and Tom Benson. 'Steve' claimed to originally be from Paris, France, then he moved to Redlands, CA. He worked in Real Estate. He said he would be moving to Florida soon and wanted to meet my sister.

Scam Report(s)

Report N1 (added on May, 29, 2013)

Allen Mark if that's his real name, contacted me. We messaged each other for awhile on himherdating then by personal email then texted each others cell. At first I didn't catch that his cell number started with 417 which is an area code in Missouri. He stated on his profile and to me that he lived in Secaucus, Wisconsin. Then he sent me a friend request on I noticed on his profile on facebook stated he lived Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I stared asking questions and he wouldn't answer me. I called his cell phone and it rang and rang. Finally went to voice mail. I asked him to please call me. Several hours later I received a text message. I asked again for him to call me. He did and his English wasn't very good at all. On 5/18/2013 I asked him to take a picture with his cell phone and send it to my cell so I could see if he was a fake. Needless to say I never got the picture. On 5/19/2013 I tried to call his cell and his has been shut off.

I was contacted by Desmond Tom West via seniorpeople meet. He said his mother was French and his father American. He gave me 6529 Glenview Drive in North Richland Hills, TX 76180 as his address. His phone number 469-202-6948. He called a few times an and talked quickly and hung up. If I called the number, he never answered. It went to voicemail.. I later discovered that the email is under Destiny Foley.

It started on the dating site. He then gave me his email and asked for mine. He was leaving the site. He emailed several times and eventually asked for my number. He started texting. After a few weeks, he asked for my address. He sent flowers and candy. From there he quickly started expressing feelings for me.

He said he had a 19 year old son, Joel, living with him and that he had been divorced for 2 years.
The way things were progressing, it was too much too fast. He told me that he was waiting for some money to come from a construction job. He asked for money. He also told me he was going to come to Arizona to visit when he received his money. Just before Christmas, he said he and his son were going to Cairo to do a job. It sounded a little odd. Anytime I asked specific questions, he would never answer. At one point, I told him that he was a scammer. He became very angry and turned it on me... He continued to text and told me he was coming in February.

A friend of mine told me about your site. Sure enough, Dessy's picture is here. I am texting him as soon as I am done here.

Miss Marple from United States  

I'm fundamentally a happy Man, but I miss the intimacy and joy of having a loving partner in my life. I am willing to commit myself unconditionally to cultivating an exceptional relationship with the right Woman I want to listen carefully, nurture our connection, and explore deeper levels of trust and intimacy together. If that’s what you're eventually wishing for too, let’s take the first step and start a conversation.I would consider myself a very confident person who knows what I want and whe.
