WOW LADIES THIS IS SO FREAKY. I RECEIVED A E-MAIL FROM THIS IDIOT AND I AM ONE WHOM HE (KELVIN,JOEL,JEFFREY, PAUL) IS TALKING TO AT THIS VERY MOMENT. EXCEPT NOW HE GOES UNDER THE NAME PETER ANDERSON JONES. I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO READ EVERYONES COMMENTS BUT LET ME ASSURE YOU THAT WHEN HE AND I FIRST STARTED CHATTING, I WOULD ASK QUESTIONS AND THE ANSWERS JUST DIDN'T SEEM TO ADD UP. I DECIDED TO TRY AND LOOK HIM UP BUT THERE WAS NO INFO ON PETER JONES OR HIS NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS WHICH IS PETERJONES05@YAHOO.COM.
HE FIRST STARTED TELLING ME HOW BEAUTIFUL I WAS AND IF I HAD A MAN AND HE WANTED TO BE WITH A GOOD HONEST GIRL AND HE LOVED MY MYSPACE PROFILE AND I BEGAN TO CHAT WITH HIM JUST BECAUSE HE WAS CUTE BUT I WAS THINKING HIS PHOTO WAS A LITTLE SUSPICIOUS. LITTLE DOES HE KNOW THAT I HAVE A COUPLE OF FRIENDS HERE FROM AFRICA, AND EVERYTHING HE WAS SAYING WAS TOTAL BULL. HE CLAIMS HE IS FROM HOUSTON,TEXAS VISITING HIS MOM IN LAGOS NIGERIA -AFRICA.
HE SAID THAT HIS MOTHER IS IN THE HOSPITAL WITH KIDNEY FAILURE AND NEEDS A NEW KIDNEY AND HE JUST GOT THERE ALMOST 2 WEEKS AGO TO BE WITH HER. SHE WILL NOW HAVE TO HAVE SURGERY. HE IS MIXED. HIS MOM IS FROM AFRICA AND HIS WHITE DAD IS FROM CHICAGO BUT IS NOW DECEASED BECAUSE HIS SIDE OF THE FAMILY KILLED HIM FOR BEING WITH A BLACK WOMAN. THEN THEY SHIPPED HIS MOM BACK TO AFRICA AND NOW HE'S THERE TO VISIT. HE IS A COMPUTER ENGINEER AND HAS HIS OWN BUSINESS. BUT AFTER A WEEK, JUST STARTED ASKING ME FOR MONEY.
I KNOW HE KNOWS THAT I KNOW HE IS FULL OF SHIT BUT EVERYDAY TRIES TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE. I JUST SAID THAT I WOULD KEEP SEARCHING TO FIND OUT INFO ABOUT HIM AND I AM SO GLAD I ENTERED IN HIS PHOTO AND LOOK HOW MANY WOMAN HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS IDIOT. HE WILL EVEN GO AS FAR AS TO TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU. I FIGURED HE EITHER KNOWS THE GUY IN THIS PHOTO OR KNOWS SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HIM BUT I CAN TELL THE GUY IN THE PICTURE IS REAL BUT THE GUY BEHIND THE PICTURE NEEDS TO GET A LIFE. I HOPE MANY WOMEN WILL POST THESE ALL OVER THE DIFFERENT SITES THAT HE IS ON TRYING TO CON WOMEN INTO GIVING HIM MONEY. PLEASE LADIES KEEP POSTING AND I AM GOING TO RIP HIM A NEW ONE WHEN I SEE HIM ONLINE TOMORROW.

I JUST HAVE TO SAY ONE MORE THING AND THAT'S IT. I AM JUST AMAZED AT THE LETTERS THAT ALL THESE WOMEN HAVE GOTTEN FROM HIM, AND THINGS THAT WERE TOLD BY HIM AND HOW SIMILAR THAT THEY ARE TO WHAT WAS SAID TO ME. THIS IS SO CRAZY.I JUST KNOW THERE ARE MORE WOMEN OUT THERE GETTING CON'D BY HIM. I GOOGLED THE NAME HE GOES UNDER NOW - PETER JONES AND FOUND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT HIM EVEN UNDER HIS CURRENT E-MAIL ADDRESS. I JUST KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG SO I KEPT SEARCHING FOR NIGERIAN SCAMS AND GOOGLING DIFFERENT WORDS THAT HAVE TO DO WITH SCAMS, AND SOMEHOW CHECKED OUT ALL OF THESE SITES UNTIL I GOT TO THIS ONE AND I WAS ABOUT TO GIVE UP CAUSE I DIDNT SEE ANYTHING ABOUT HIM OR HIS PICTURE CAUSE HE HAS NOTHING UNDER PETER JONES. I FINALLY SAW AT THE BOTTOM THAT YOU COULD SCAN HIS PICTURE AND SEE IF SOMETHING COMES UP AND I FOUND 25 DAMN PAGES ON THIS MAN AND WHAT HE SAYS TO WOMEN AND ALL THE ALIAS NAMES AND E-MAIL ADDRESS' HE GOES UNDER. IT'S DISGUSTING!!!
I AM NOT ON BLACKPLANET OR ANY DATING SITES BUT I AM ON MYSPACE AND I FEEL LIKE HE NEEDS TO BE PUT OUT ON THOSE SITES THAT WE KNOW OF. IF WE CAN DO THAT. I DON'T KNOW BUT I THINK THERE ARE SOME WOMEN OUT THERE WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS SITE AND DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS MAN. I MEAN JUST READING MOST OF THESE PAGES I AM IN TOTAL SHOCK, AND IT WOULD OPEN THESE GIRLS EYES TO SEE THAT HE IS A MANIAC. IF IT WEREN'T FOR ME DIGGING TO FIND THE TRUTH, I WOULD HAVE NEVER FOUND OUT THAT SO MANY WOMEN ARE BEING CONTACTED BY HIM AND HIS ALIAS'. WHAT IF I DIDN'T HAVE A PHOTO OF THIS MAN, OR SAVED HIS PICTURE TO MY COMPUTER? I WOULD HAVE NEVER KNEW TO LOOK UNDER THESE OTHER NAMES TO FIND HIM.THIS IS SO DANGEROUS AND WE HAVE TO LOOK OUT FOR OTHER WOMEN. PLEASE MAKE A NAME FOR THIS MAN SO THAT WOMEN WILL BE ALERT OF WHO THEY ARE COMING IN CONTACT WITH EVEN IF THEY ARE ACTING DUMB TO THE FACT. WE ALL SHOULD HELP EACH OTHER OUT ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE VUNERABLE TO THESE MEN. I AM JUST FLOORED RIGHT NOW READING THESE LETTERS AND SEEING WHAT NAMES HE'S UNDER AND WHAT WEBSITES HE'S ON.

LADIES PLEASE HELP ME TO ALERT OTHER WOMEN ABOUT HIM, MOST WOMEN LIKE LOOKING AT A FINE MAN LIKE THAT AND TO SEE THAT HE CAN PORTRAY TO BE SINCERE IS A PLUS IN OUR EYES. ASK HIM QUESTIONS CAUSE HE'S BOUND TO SAY SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SINCE AND HE WILL ROLL WITH IT. I ASKED HIM A LOT OF QUESTIONS AND HE DIDN'T GET UPSET BUT HE KNEW I WAS NO DUMMY SO HE TRYING TO SOUND VERY LOGIC FROM THIS POINT ON AND IS TRYING TO GET MONEY FROM ME RIGHT AWAY BEFORE I FOUND OUT ABOUT HIM BUT LITTLE DOES HE KNOW, HE WASN'T GOING TO GET MONEY FROM ME AND I CAUGHT ON TO HIS LITTLE SCAM.

Anon Us,The more you post the better for all.It would be a good idea if you go to Romacescams.com and join the forum{if you haven't already}they are about the only anti-scam site with section's dedicated to MALE scammer's and your input would certainly be helpfull! I am posting some' suggested guidelines' for postinh on this site as there is not much of such a thing.As a 'regular' here we try to steer people in the right direction.

For future reference the following is the important info to post first;

A photo {preferably labeled with the name and e-mail address.To avoid confusion}
Name {with surname if possible}

E-mail address {IMPORTANT}

Location {country,city,street}

Phone number {if given}

The first and money request letter,with full header.With that the IP can be seen and if an X-mailer {ie;THEBAT- For Russian scammers}is used.

The dating site the scammer contacted you on.

With that available people doing a google search will get answer's.
When posting 'her'/his photo, include in your message itself, any body-piercings, tattoos, moles, dimples, whatever strikes you.

Hi, I too have been scammed by this guy. I didnt send him any money thank god! He is A sweet talker and he resites poems but dont be fooled by that. He told me that he live in new york and he is in nigeria for business. the first couple of days we talked he told me that he loved me and he wanted me to be his wife. He wanted me to wire him money thru western union for the amount of 4,500.00 and to do it in 2 seperate transactions, 2000.00 each. All of the stories posted here are the same thing he told me except he said that his parents were decesed. He had me for a minute but in the back of my mind something just wasnt right about this story. I thought that he was a little to attractive to be single and desperate like this guy appears to be. when I talked to him on the phoen his accent didnt add up to me, he sounded nigerian. I have confronted him with these alligations and he's saying its not him. For the real person in these photo's, if you see this, I just want to say that i am so sorry your pics is being used like that and that you are being potrayed to women like that. I really want to take these people down because its not fair to the women they conned and you because its your reputation that they are playing with. plaese if and when you read this please respond back to me, i really want to help resolve this because this is way out of hand and its got to stop now. people all over are being hurt behind it and aslo you are too. I read what you posted on here and I feel your pain. no one wants to be portrayed as a bad person if they have done nothing wrong. anyone out there have any information on these people please email me because this has got to stop now. and for the real guy in this behind this photo, please contact me if you are ready to put these fools awya because i know i am. take care.

Hi, I just posted the comment above this one. yes the real guy can send me a pic saying not a scammer to my email address. I just really feel bad and its not my pics that they are useing but its hurtful to know that people will do anything for money. I never knew that people did those kinds of things, i am new to the internet thing and now learning that its just not safe. Just beware of this joel kelvin collins person, he sounds just like the one that contacted me only he is not using that same name. What i have learned from this experience is to never trust a stranger and if they are asking for money withing the first meeting then thats a red flag#1. So for the real guy behind this pic i just want you to stand up and take action now. i am going to do everything i can to expose them because i cant stand scammers!!!!!!!!!! they make my skin crawl.

He just never stops! beware ladies! he is very loving , caring and romantic! he says all those thing to get you where he wants you and then he askes for money! he is very slick and smooth and can easilsy fool you. watch out for the spelling, its very poor and he loves to call you angel or babe! He really got me good with all the poems and nice conversations. he will tell you that he loves you and will die for your love, what a bunch of bull. He has so many alias names and is on various dating sites. He goes by the name kelvin on myspace and george frank on black planet. I want to share this with all women around the world, he will try and scam you with saying hes trying to get home from nigeria, but he tells different stories. He told me that he was in nigeria for business and will be there for 3weeks but its been over a month or so since weve met and hes still there. He told me that he needed to ship his stuff back to the usa and he will ask to cash money thru western union. I didnt send him any money but he did get me to believe his story. pleas be very careful of this person, hes good at what he does. What made me more supious of him was when i asked him personal things about himself like about his ethnicity and backround or what he did for a living, he will just say hes working. i wanted to put this out there to all the ladies that have been in his path, please be careful because i dont want to see another woman cooned out of their money from a scum bag like this!

Anyone seen this one? His story is the same as this Joel Kelvin whatever, he is Frank Smith from Texas. Same story, he is visiting his mom in Nigeria he is an only child, she was in an accident and is in the hospital. She needs hip surgery it is going to cost 9800 the dr is demandina a deposit of 4800 and he has 4300 and needs me to send him 500 right away. I was already questioning who he was, I asked him for his address, he got a little upset, told me the address, not knowing I had already googled it, well the exact address came up but so did a phone number. I also asked for a home phone number and he said that it had been disconnected while he was gone, I called the phone number that came up and a very very nice older lady answered the phone. We had a wonderful conversation but she did not a Nigerian Frank Smith, she did however, know her husband who is not Nigerian or anything close. Anyhow, when I asked him why he lied he was pissed and said he didnt lie to me. Anyway, I never sent any money and I wouldnt have because I have own financial woes here at home but he started asking after 4 days. He told me how much he loved me and how much I meant to him and he never felt that way before and like many of you, I was thinking this brotha is way to fine to be single and desperate. The man in the picture is beautiful but I do not believe him to be the man on the other end of the phone, too much accent for him to be raised in US. Anyway, BE CAREFUL, NOT SURE IF THE SAME PERSON OR IF THEY ARE FRIENDS, COUSINS, OR COWORKERS BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
