Another scam artist to be aware of is a guy calling himself Chris Morgan. He goes by

I met him on a legit website. He asked me for my yahoo ID. We IMed for the first time in Feburary. Three days later, based on the one IM, he wrote the following to me:


Some of the most superb feelings and tingling emotions come from what love an Angel, such as yourself, and I make. Our world, as we have come to see it, has no bearing and an infinite boundary when we are locked lips to lips lol. No one person can sever that bond of nothing but pure affection and intimate passion. We are the Angels of Our Heaven and with merely our names to live with. A name, which consists of nothing more than symbols of a language taken for granted. I would soon rather speak nothing. A true test of love of which we have to accomplished merely by the elucidation in our eyes.

Earth moves with such apathy that only Our Heaven can keep the pace of our devotion for one another. As slow as the heart beat of a goliath at rest. Why would the world seem so passive? I believe it is a chance for us to make our own time to spend together. It is love. It is what binds the thoughts of all beings trying to understand it. It appears that you and I can still fall into love, without having looked for it. This is Heaven and we are the Angels of Our Name....I really miss chating with you.I will like to know more about you,You seems nice and lovely,wish God can answer my prayers this time.I really like you,and I wanna develop true love with you.Miss you once more

Affection Always,

Your Heaven's Angel

Turns out that if you put all of that in Google, it's some generic poem that you can find on any love poem site.

But that was not enough. On the same day (still only three days from the first day we IMed):

'Hey, Honey ... I miss you. I'm just here thinking about you, like I always do. I hope you're as happy as me; The thought of you in my arms right now sounds so good to me. I just want you to know how much I fellings I have for you.Thinking of you always

Ever since the first time I chat with you, I miss you every second of my life. I knew I found someone special. I will always remember how sweet and nice you are.ever since I chat with you, I would smile and I was happy from that point on....


Then this one within minutes of the two above:

'Before you came into my life, I had given up on ever finding my soul mate; the one person who could set my heart on fire with just one look. I thought that was the stuff of silly, dime store romance novels. Was I wrong!!! When you sent your 1st mail at perfect match saying Hi morgan...

I fell in love with you,when yousent a msg and say.. Hi morgan when i looked at your pic.I was like who is this beautifulangel, but I was so afraid of letting you in and being hurt again.but I pray,God will anwser my prayers . I cannot imagine what my life would be Heart breaks all the time?. Falling asleep in your arms every night and waking up with smiles beside you each morning is how I want to spend the rest of my life... Every day that goes by, i always think of you I fall deeper and deeper Thinking of you. I know there will never be anyone else for me, for everyone would pale in comparison to you and what you make me feel. Thank you, Sweetheart, for healing my broken heart. Thank you for making me believe in miracles.


He IMed me to ask me what I thought of the emails. I told him that there was no way he could have all of those feelings for someone he had never met. . . after a little while, he said he had to go -- to 'tidy up.'

So this guy says he is from Spain. I discovered this in our first and second IM, but it wasn't easy. For every question I asked, he had a love quote that had no bearing on the conversation. Being from Spain made sense at first because his spelling is horrible. But then when I wrote him in spanish, he could not respond. He says he is a widower and his wife died three years ago in London. He claims that he has a daughter named Amanda and that she is 16. He says that he is an importer/exporter of diamonds and gold. Parents are dead and he does not like talking about them. I mentioned that his name did not sound Spanish. He said that it's Christian Raul Morgan. His Mom is apparently American and his father is Spanish. Father gave him 'Raul'. The thing is that Raul is seldom ever used as a last name in Spain. It is a typical first name. He is supposedly from Madrid and moved to the U. S. when his father died to take over his father's business. He says he lives in Brooklyn. Shortly after he IMed me the first time, he said that he was going on a business trip to China. So, as a result, it would be some time before it would be possible to meet.

Several days later after no communication, I received this one (also from or one of those cheesy websites):

'Hi Sweetheart, I wanted to say something special about you; I wanted to do something simply to show you how proud I am of the love I have for you and that I'm not afraid to announce it to the world. I want the world to know how I am in love with you and how much you mean to me. Every day my love for you grows and it gets stronger and stronger. It's such an overwhelming feeling to be this much in love.Not minding we haven't seen each other or talk to each other.

I know I don't tell you everyday, but you are the most beautiful woman I know for now, both on the inside as well as the outside. Your beauty is so captivating! It's not even possible for me to stop thinking about you even for a minute; you are always on my mind. You do something to me... something so indescribable there are no words that I can say that can even give you the slightest clue as to how much I cares for you.You are an angel You have truly made me the happiest man on earth; I have never ever been happier in all my life for so long . I have no clue as to what I did to be so, so lucky and I will be eternally grateful for you and the love and happiness you give to me. I will never stop loving you.or thinking about you all day if you promise the same.Pls.lets say no to heart breaks and face the world together as one.Be a good and lovely woman.I will give you the best in life.These I promise.Miss you and can't wait to see you lovely face .

Within minutes of that one, I received this one (also from the internet -- or one of those websites):

'Let me start by saying that I thank God every night since I found you. You came into my life when everything seemed so dark but you provided the light to find my way. I've never been so certain of anything in my life like I am of us. You have totally changed my outlook in life and I thank you for that. I never thought that i could love someone like you , but guess what? I love you . I feel as if I'm walking over clouds just thinking about you. You make my life complete. I know you've said we could do foolish things while in love, but you know what? With you I wouldn't mind being a fool for the rest of my life. I love you so much and I know with Time you are gonna love me too. I know that others looking into our relationship might think that I AM saying too many foolish things too soon but they just don't know how I feel about you There's nothing foolish about the things I've told you, I meant every word I said. I love you, I love you so much. Today I promise you that I would do anything in my power to make you a great person, outstanding motherr and loving wife BY GOD GRACE BECAUSE I KNOW HE WILL MAKE IT FOR ME

Maybe three days after the one above, he IMs. For everything I said, he would respond with some weird love quote:'What's a relationship without a little risk and faith' or 'Once in awhile right in the middle of an ordinary life love gives us a fairy tale' or 'Everytime I think of you, I'm sad. Everytime I hear you're name, I'm mad. But everytime I think of how you made me feel, I'm glad.' Another one is: 'When you love a woman, you see your world inside her eyes.'

I am totally bewildered because these statements make no sense anyway much less in the middle of a perfectly mundane conversation about one's day. So, this time, I began lifting the phrases from the IM and plopping them into Google. Sure enough -- '' comes up. And then this website. It turns out that all of this platitudes come from one email that I read on this site.

I googled his yahoo ID and found that he was a member of 12 different websites in the U. S., Romania, China, Italy, South Africa and other places. In some of them, he is 5'10 and in another, 5'9' and then yet another, 6'0'.

We never got to the place where he asked me for money -- but I don't doubt that it was coming. I was nice but skeptical from the start. And the whole charade lasted for about 10 days with many days in between where I did not hear from him. When I busted him this morning, he responded by abruptly signing off IM without so much of a 'see ya.' But now that I have seen what these guys do, thank god I figured this out.

I put all the emails in here so that you can compare and make sure that you stay away from this guy.

I am going to try to post a picture.

Anyone else been scammed by someone called Prince Brown? He was born in Spain, moved to Miami, and has now gone to Ghana to sell some trucks. His son was shot while he was out there, but this Prince person couldn't return home because when his son was shot (Kelvin), the people stole his money at the same time. He's running up a bill now and asked three times for money.

It's a close family member of mine who's involved in this, and she's unfortunately been suckered in, anyone else seen this picture before?

So glad I found this site, I have been contacted by David White, apparently he has own business, came from New York, lived in Manchester and went to UCL. He lost his mother when he was young, was an only child and then his dad died just after he divorced his wife when he found her in bed with his best friend, they both now live in Germany and he is bringing up his 6 yr old son Harry on his own. Has not asked me for money yet but has told me that he cannot access cash on his credit card so I expect the mail. He only contacted me yesterday but already telling me wonderful things and how he wants to meet when he is back here from his business trip to Nigeria. The word Nigeria imediately made me suspicious as I have a few friends who have worked there and there are endless scams. If they sound too good to be true they propably are. Its obvious the pics are not his and that from his spelling he is very poorly educated

I consider myself very versatile . I'm very laid-back and down-to-earth.

This is the quote from today ladies please don't fall for this it is a scam from somewhere in Nigeria he wrote
Hey Mami ,

It's the middle of the day here and I'm thinking about you, as usual. I want you to know how much I sincerely love the mails you do send me. It means so much to me. It truly seems like I've known you forever and I honestly can't imagine life without you now. There will be no looking back, no second thoughts and no regrets. I want you and only you ... and that love will only grow stronger. Sometimes life hits you with unexpected things that take you totally by surprise. All I can say is you're the best surprise life has given me and your capacity for love, caring, and understanding never ceases to amaze me. I've truly been blessed by finding you and I'll never let you your questions, i work in a glass company as a cordionator/marketer, living alone, no kids but i do have pets,i do live in Elberton GA, like to gym and swim to look young and fit.

Love and Regards,
Stevastin .
Quote and then gave me a number to call because he wanted to conversate 0112348063177786 never called the number cause i don't want to meet someone from another country he is on black planet posing as moobling looking for you BEWARE

2009-05-03, 14:55:24
Here is another email he sent to me I started laughing and asking myself do he really think I believe any of this crap....... He quoted ...................
Hello Gorgouse ,

Thanks so much for your reply. To start off my name is Stevastin or can call me Bling, I am Mixed Both African and also America.i am currently in Africa now with my mom who is kinda sick and i hope you are not discouraged.Tell me more about yourself, anything at all will do.

I like the fact that you are straight forward about the fact that you are looking for a serious relationship, soulmate, (right?...smiling). So many women feel like they have to be in the 'I'm not looking for anything serious' mode, because they think that's what men want to hear. Thanks for taking a chance and just showing who you are. So I should probably tell you a little more about me.

I consider myself to be very simple. I believe that women needs to be treated with respect and as a equal partner in a relationship, but all I seem to find is the ones that does not know how to respond to that or is untrusting to it. I feel like u should treat somebody with respect and like they are a person not a peice of meat or whatever. I am the type of person who wants somebody to feel wanted not just as a trophy. I am a very affectionate person and I love to cuddle, I like to show somebody how I feel not just telling them. I love to be close to somebody whether it is in the bed on the couch or wherever. I guess my dreams would be is to be happy and have a family my goals in life. I guess I want to work on my love life and be happy first. I like to play sports just as much as I do watching them. Most of all i like to spend time with who I am with, and cuddle up and watch a movie. It is my opinion that we all want the same thing in regards to a partner, and that most of us either do not know how or is scared to and sabotage themselves from getting it. Ok, I like the outdoors, but I don't care about hunting or fishing, well I will fish with an un-baited hook if it means I will get to spend some time with someone I care about. There are a lot of things I like doing as in dancing, cooking, camping, etc. My ultimate goal and what I think would make me happy is to get back on my feet and have a woman by my side that I love and loves me, and children that I can raise and have fun with, it doesnt matter if they are not my own blood, bcuz i love kids maybe bcuz am the only child of my parents.

I am very relationship oriented and I believe life is too short to waste. When I am in a relationship I am committed, honest, and loyal. I think that falling in love is always a good thing, even if it doesn't work out. There is always something to learn from being with someone, and happy times and memories should be cherished. Friendship comes first for me. That is not to say I never get hurt because I do. I have been burnt so bad. My last relationship ended on a very sad note for me but I do not believe in regrets. I tell you this because I cannot predict the future. For some people a relationship has to be all or nothing...I don't feel that way, well once again am so much interested in you.

Love and Regards,
