He has been chatting with me on IM for 5 weeks. I knew nothing about these scams. He told me he was travelling to Sudan and Nigeria as freelance journalist. I fell totally in love with him. Only after he told me he had accident and knocked down a small child. He begged me to help him with some money, I checked everything out, I could not trip him up I could not find out anything about him to make me suspect him - not until I sent him some money. Now he wants some more money for blood transfusion for this kid.... like hell.
He, will break your heart, they will write such beautiful things to you to get your heart. He says he is american/italian, and on phone he definitely sounds that, as does his diction when he is writing. Believe me I tried to check out everything and it was all plausible. Things to watch out for ... his constant use of the phrase 'SMILES' and 'I LOVE YOU MORE BABY'.

So many of you think because it's not the same picture, it's not the same person.

Here is how much of it works... they may work alone, or in groups. Someone searches the internet for profiles where someone has uploaded many pics of themselves. They will steal all of them and save the site for any new pics uploaded.

They will search for profile content that they can use to build new fake profiles.

They will create several profiles under men and women's names.

They will add each of them to the others as friends and will comment to each other or send stickers in attempt to make it look legit.

They normally stick to certain stories. If it's a man's profile, he's either a widower with one child, in the military and wants to come home or ready to come home, doing business in another country and trapped there, has a sick relative in another country who needs help, or they hurt someone and being held there and have to pay their way out of the country, or want to help the person they hurt. If it's a woman's profile, she doesn't have to do much except look sexy and talk sex with men... for the most part.

All of them will immediately try to get you off the site you're on, and onto Yahoo. That is because the site they are on, usually allows mass email and they don't want to risk being caught.

They will fall for you almost immediately. They will romance the hell out of you. They will ask for money or ask you to cash a check and wire them the money because for some reason they can't use their own account. That is MONEY LAUNDERING and will not only be cause for the federal gov't to freeze your assets, but they will watch you for a long time.

They will do several things if they think they have a naive person on the hook.... they might send you small gifts if you are suspecting something isn't right. They may say they want to come here to see you but need money for the ticket. They may hire someone to sit in front of a webcam ... but lo and behold, the sound doesn't work! lol They will do anything.

Some things to do...

1) DO NOT trust anyone you meet online until you've checked them out first. Trust must be earned and with so many scammers running rampant, you need to protect yourself.

2) Google the first or second sentence (or unique one) from the first email they send you. It's amazing what you can find.

3) Google their name with the word 'scammer' after it. Again, amazing what you find out!

4) Google their name, town and state... look for someone from that state who is the same age. Pipl.com or Peopledata.com are great sites. Spokeo is another.

5) Google their phone number. If it's a foreign number, ask them to type it with the spaces or dashes that foreign numbers have...just tell them you usually dial through an online program and the dashes or spaces need to be there. Than google it once you have it in the correct format.

6) Check sites like Pig Busters, Romancescam.com, or http://www.datingnm..tabase.htm .... read those sites!! They are sooo good at teaching you what to look for and may even have your scammer on there.

7) Keep in mind first and foremost.... most of you have family or needs of your own. If it comes to money, just because you think you have feelings for someone, that money needs to be prioritized... they are not your first priority.

8) These people/groups are very, very good at what they're doing. They will use every ploy because bottom line is, they DO NOT care about you. They most times come from very poor countries and scamming you means them living a better quality of life... even if the way they obtain that money is downright, lowdown!

9) Beware anyone online under one name and then suddenly they have a different name. When my brother was talking to a scammer who said she was in Nigeria because her mother went there for medical treatments that were cheaper than in the US, I asked him for her last name... the 3rd name she gave him...the one she wanted the money sent to so her mother could have surgery... I googled the name and the word 'origin'... sure enough, her last name is a Nigerian name.

10) Question everything and be prepared for the scammer to explain it all away. But folks... if you're having any doubts, or it sounds too good to be true, it IS!!

I am glad I found this web sight! I am also a custom of micheal smith, he contacted me and claw to be from oak ridge Tennessee with his 13 year old daughter who is staying with his cousin till he comes home I should have know because when I asked if I could write to him he told me do to security purposes he could only recieve cash, I never heard that one, he claims to be in South Sudan trying to help find those missing girls, you meant to tell me you you can't get care packaged or mail and only cash? I have never heard of that, I never actually spoke to him on the phone but it was stated it would need to be collect? Who does that and he broke his phone and couldn't make calls. He told me his with died. 7 years ago in a car crash 3 months till there wedding, told me her name Sherri and he missed her so much, the daughters name was Lynda and he was picking her up as soon as he got home, and could come to visit me here in michigan for a 5 day visit so he could meet my family to make sure they would except him weird huh? He is supposedly a Army special forces warrant officer. It was hard to talk because he claimed he was always at a check point ( really) he said the most amazing things anyone would want to here but it was odd his way of grammar was I'm pretty sure he was not American, his messages were really off and jumbled it was just how he worded thins and when he mentioned his girlfriend he used it in presence like she was still around but what baffled me the most was in his pictures they were not the same guy!! On his 3 Facebook accounts I'm one he is in a relationship and another he was a bisexual! this man is the scum of the earth and should rot in hell! When he messages me yesterday I went crazy on who ever this person is a I know he is a wanted fugitive in at least 2 states! I told him never message or contact me again of he will be very sorry he did. He prays on older heavy set woman two I noticed but thanks to a good friend I'm glad I found out the truth before I ever let him in to my life. Ladies I met him on okcupid I'm warning you do not believe this scammer he will get caught eventually thank god for background checks! I hope this was somewhat helpful for other woman out there!
