Just thought I'd add the lastest scammer using the same lame story as posted on here many times. He's still using as a feeding ground. I have added our emails to point out a few things to others. I had this guy pegged from his second email and thank the people who made this site for helping me to prove my gut instinct. Ladies follow your gut not your heart or longing to find a good guy....there aren't any. What first gave this guy away is his lack to acknowledge anything I wrote to him. They all choose their words carefully to reel you in by showing you how caring they can be and at times just as wounded as you are in affairs of the heart. They also talk around anything you want to know instead of answering any direct question you pose. Ladies in this day and age we can not be so gulable. Technically, to the law these guys aren't doing anything wrong and prosecuting them even when they've managed to rip your lifesavings away from you is impossible. Insist and demand proof, it will save you any further heartache. I hope this helps his next target. Again thank you to those who made this site!!!!!!!!

Hi ,
Good day , Wow,Such an incredible profile you have here & you are stunning and gorgeous.I saw your profile you have great smiles and I am very much interested in knowing you more. Want you to know I am totally ready for a serious/long-lasting relationship, so if you seek same lets connect.
I have been a rather passive member on here due to my busy schedules and my membership ends in couple of days which I don't think I’ll be renewing it.
Feel free to write me directly through: pauledward144 at y a h o o dot com
That way I can share with you more details about me along with couple more photos so we can communicate more because absolute communication is the key to a successful relationship so I want to make it special.
Please forgive me if this seems being too forward.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Keep Smiling Beautiful!.

Thank you for the email and kind words. Normally with those eyes and the furry feline to your right I'd jump at this oppurtunity like a spawning salmon. However, these days my life is in an abundance of turmoil and I'm a massive train wreck. The universe has chosen to keep me in the ring for 15 rounds of a beat down as opposed to the normal 12. I'm still standing but just barely. Thats the sugar coated description and I can't believe I'm saying that outloud. Anyway, it wouldn't be fair to give you any false hope, my faith in people as well as my own judgement is very low at this point. Love and spoil your feline, he/she is your bestfriend if you weren't aware. You do have great eyes..........

Hi Angel,

Thanks for providing me with your personal email as am glad to have received your email, i feel welcomed and a bit close to you because you did provide me with your personal email, a nice step to start getting to know each other, went through your profile again and pleased with what i have read, You look so cute, decent and with this gorgeous picture of you, i don't think i have the exact word to express myself at the moment cause am interested in getting to know more about you.

Let me share a little about myself, Am Widower as you know on my wall, we were married for 6 years and have been a Widower for 10 years now, I am Originally from Ireland and i live in Quebec, am on a job here in the State which am almost done with, i am an engineer who is into building constructions, i build houses, hospitals, bridges roads...etc, i am self employed and i handle my job in contracts. I have a daughter,she is 15 and she lives with me and i love her so much, she doesn't get to travel with me often and stays with the Nanny back home when ever am gone on a job, she likes biking, shopping and swimming just like myself.

I signed into social dating site in search of someone honest, caring, understanding and, above all have a good sense of humor. It took me quite a while to decide before joining and even longer to write on my wall. I am typically shy when I first meet someone, but your wall has all ready put me at ease. I was going through your wall and cannot believe the similarities between us. I always try to look for the good in people and that often leads to my being taken advantage of, but I am the eternal optimist and will continue to help and support the people around me. i want Someone not to have a fling or temporary relationship with, but a forever lasting relationship.

I have not been in a relationship for long now because, i don't just want to rush into any relationship which will not last long and the previous ladies i have dated in the past(Quebec) have always asked for too much and materialistic because they knew am financially ok, i want a relationship that can lead to something great.Age, size, distance and location should be no barriers to her cause i don't mind relocating for the right woman, am not asking her to leave her family and relocate but i will do so cause life is too short now to keep guessing, I always do listen to my heart, I look forward to meeting someone and becoming friends first and then hopefully it will turn into a life long relationship. I want someone who will accept me for myself and understand that I am not perfect. I want someone that I can laugh with, enjoy life's adventures and spend quality alone time with. I am as happy out with a large group or simply enjoying a quiet evening snuggling on the couch and watching a good movie.

I really don't believe that distance matters, one can be in the same room with another and have no connection while one can be on the other side of the planet and be close in heart, I believe we live in a 'global' world and the entire world is at our fingertips. So, I don't see geography as inhibiting relationships, but enabling them...
I said am going to relocate for the right woman and i meant it, i have had series of jobs in the past that have taking most of my time and have now decided it shouldn't be all about work at this stage of my life but to also get a companion who we can sit together close to the fire when it's cold, hold hands, laugh with each other, go to the beach together, go to the movies together and my daughter supports it, we shouldn't forget we are not getting any younger..hahaha.

I am a man who will never cheat on my partner because i believe that God made one man for one woman and so i should be like that, I will like us to chat, so we can ask questions about ourselves and get instant answers, all i want is a honest and heart felt woman who wants to leave the beautiful life ahead of us with me. Age weight, size does not matter to me, so my arms are wide open.

Hoping that getting to know you will lead to something great, please do not mind the distance between us because, distance is just a flight ticket away to me. Remember, no matter where we are in
this world, we laugh and dream under the same moon..

I hope you'll give me a chance to get to know you better.
Till i hear from you.

Hello Paul,

Not quite sure what to make out of this response other than to say it wasn't what I expected. I did attempt to view your profile but it came back as no additional information available. So all I have is a small picture with a screen name, your age , a location, and the age range of woman you are seeking to meet attached to your original email......not a lot to go on. So now I'm wondering just what I'm suppose to do with this.....
If I appear to be skeptical it's only because I am. Recent experiences have taught me to proceed with great caution. Not necessarily a bad lesson to learn but most certainly a painful one that has changed my perspective on life, people, and situations in general.' We' as a society have become too reliant on technology to ease the way we reach out to one another that we forget typing words through cyberspace isn't really a way of communicating. It only allows scoundrels to be more scandalous. Let's face it... anyone can be anything behind the cloak of a computer screen and a keyboard, there's absolutely no way to prove or disprove what is written when reading it because it lacks the tone of words, eye contact and the body language of the one writing it. Oddly, the Internet is teaching us how not to communicate rather than keeping us connected. I don't like being this cynical but this is my mind set these days and with good reason.

I will admit you have me curious and wondering. Seeing as my first reply didn't seem to scare you away or make you think twice about replying back. You seem sincere but as I've already stated I really have no way of proving that. I'll be quite frank and tell you this year has been more than difficult and at times down right devastating so taking leaps of faith don't come as easily as they use to. I'll trust a wild, hungry animal standing in front of me before trusting a person who claims to do me no harm. This makes life very difficult for me cause it goes against the very nature of who I am. I really hate having to be cautious as well as suspicious of people and their intentions, it really takes the fun out of living. Ironic how life can change in an instant but healing seems to carry on for what seems like forever. Which leads me back to my original thought of what I'm suppose to do with this........

I'm assuming you realize I reside in Colorado. In your letter you stated you reside in Quebec and I'm assuming that's Quebec, Canada...... talk about taking leaps and bounds,lol. However, that's not the locale that was listed on your original email so I have to ask where are you currently and for how long? I ask because if your still serious about wanting to know me, and I haven't scared you yet, I have to insist on a face to face meeting. Coffee and conversation in a public place will do.

Hi Angel,

How are you doing this evening? I hope this mail get to you in good health. I guess you should truly know who i am ,I don't really don't know how this is to work, but hey! here is an exclusive. If at my age i do not know what and when to say, then what would I be? When a wise man sees he has probably spent about half of his time in life already, he begins to assess his main goals in life. What could be more important than a happy ending? LOL. I just thought i'd share my background with you to enable you know me more.I will break this down to segments and it would be like a case study.

I was born in Dublin,Ireland in the 60's. I am the only child of my late parents,My Dad's family is English & Irish background and my Mom is Icelander, so i have a little bit of the Icelander accent.My father has worked a variety of jobs, But he ended up in as an oil merchant before he died,I was into the oil business with him but after his death I decided to go into construction as I am a graduate of (Civil/Construction/Building Engineering & QS). I went back to my field and as a self employed so i work for myself.

My mum was working as a Fashion Designer, she had her own clothing Label before she died 16 years ago of Cancer, i was 36 then, i spent almost all my time then with my mum and was very close to her,it wasn't easy for me loosing her,Since the death of my parents I have not gone back to Ireland since i left as am not close to my relatives,we had a flight over my dad properties after he died,i was so disappointed in them and decided to move out of Ireland as i am not a material person which brought me to Canada were I stay and my house address is 35 Rue Beechwood - Baie D`Urfe, Quebec, QC H9X 2L9,Canada, thought you should have that as well.

I was married for 6 yrs to the mother of my daughter Sabina,I lost her mom to cancer of the breast about 10yrs ago,it wasn't easy for me either,it was hard for me to watch her die slowing,she was a perfect match for me,we love each other so dearly.There was true love,respect,care and understanding,always happy with each other but like i always say,everything happen for a reason so God took her for a reason.My daughter is 15yrs old now and i am so happy to see her growing up,i have been taking care of her alone since i lost her mom when she was only 5yrs old.I have not felt the love of a woman for long time now and i really miss it, to be sincere, am scared but just want to be bold and move forward, like i said, am a one man to one woman relationship type and when i love, i love real hard, i listen to my partner and understands a lot.. .

I have not felt the love of a woman for long time now and i really miss it, to be sincere, am scared but just want to be bold and move forward, like i said, am a one man to one woman relationship type and when i love, i love real hard, i listen to my partner and understands a lot.. .

Some day I hope to help people make healthier, more loving decisions with their lives. Perhaps as a kind of counselor. In the mean time, I’m happy with what I am doing because I know that the work I do makes a difference, I love everything about construction, I love to create new things everyday, am into building of houses, hospitals, construction of roads, building of structures for companies and underground laying of oil pipes, i hardly get angry because i do believe that energy and time should be put into something good.

I don't know if you have a Skype account, so that we can chat through the IM, it is a fast means of communication, we can instant message ourselves, ask questions about each other and get instant answers, if you don't have one, i will appreciate if you will be able to sign up for one and download a Skype messenger, it is free and easy.....You could add me paul.edward431

This will be all for now and thanks for reading, hope that you find nothing offensive in what i have written, if there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hold back to ask and would like to know more about you.

Cheers and a big hug from me to you,

It is very strange but I received a contact from Shaadi . Com , a man named Palu Edward, I didn't suspect it at first but after 2 months of intense trust building , he asked me for 40 k US dollars to fund a rare gem ! The initial communication is very similiar to the transcript shown here, the phrases and comments . He claims to be a jeweller, has a website to prove , on business often to Hk and Dubai, has a child and a widower for 5 years ..., on and on . He is very charming and unassuming , really felt he was genuine , but tell me what decent man asks a woman he hs hardly met or have any relationship to part with 40 k of funds . When I raised this he didn't answer the question . The key test was arranging to meet up in three occasions , something came up . He claims to be an U S citizen and lives in San diego , can't trace him or any internet references except the website he set up . I truely believe this man is a con artist and if an intelligent and capable women can fall for this nonsense then I worry for others please be very wary of this man he is a quiet and deadly in destroying trust and violating your peace of mind . please do not share anything that is personal . I have listened to all the excuses and believed all of them. But in reality he did not show up and I had a lucky escape . I feel so relieved and calm again . Never again will I enter Internet dating so naively !!!!

This is exactly what these scammers do to people and you do not expect anything with their genuine sounding letters and suddenly out of the blue they start asking for money. I was scammed in the same way 7 years ago with 2 months of contact and the scammer started to ask for money. I got suspicious and found him reported on this website which saved me as I was so close to send money to the scammer too, and lucky for me it did not went that far. The worst part of the scam was actually when I realized the photos were stolen and used by a Nigerian scammer pretending to be the guy on the photos he sent me. I do not think I have ever felt so fooled in my entire life. I created a thread here on this website for women that can help out and I have posted general information about these kind of scams. There you will find information how these kind of scams works out and you will spot a scammer faster and not waste time and energy on these crooks no more. I will add a link below.
