We met on EHarmony, I'd never used a dating site before - he's my first. He said he lived in Washington DC, then later he actually lives in CT but was here on work. He is a Civil Engineer. We did not meet because he had to work on a job in Florida, then his mother (she's British, he's still holding a passport for Norway) fell very ill so he had to leave and go to her side. His father died in Norway when he was 16 in an accident, so it's just he and his mother. He was in London for 6 days. From there is where I received two pictures and a phone number to call him. I checked the country code and it was correct. He then had to go to work in Accra Ghana for 3 weeks. As soon as he arrived, his luggage was lost and he needed a laptop. Yes, I am stupid, I sent him a laptop and I am out $1,300.00. He said he couldn't do his work and that his laptop and luggage has still not arrived.

Then he started talking about investing some money in houses, he did not ask me for any but he was hinting. Then he said he wanted to come and stay with me for up to 10 days, I said that's fine, but you'll have to get a hotel because you can't stay with me. He fell offline that night, the next day he said he was running out of money and could he have $500 to $600. I told him that I did not have it. Now the phone calls are once a day and I haven't taken any of them. However, I'm interested now to see what he says so I did call him back this morning.

Bottom line is that I don't even think the pictures are of him. His english is not that great either and neither are his writing skills.

I checked in google to see if I could find anything on his email address - nothing. I then sent an email to EHarmony to remove him.

Well, I thought this was over since beginning this string. However, Eddie Smith just called me and left a message. He must still have me programmed into his cell phone because he very clearly didn't think this was my voice mail.

The number he called from is 2 322 327 6613907.

I haven't spoken to this guy in months - it's amazing how well I still remember his voice. He's just nasty.

It is so upsetting, I haven't gotten any calls for a week after I refused to pay for his phone credits. If you can save the voice mail to your computer it would help for future identification on these scammers.

I have his voice mail on my computer. I'll hold onto this one and any future ones that I receive. Most of his message is in what I now know is African, but he ends it in english and with his name as 'Eddie'.

I am trying to figure out if David spoke to me with a Norwegian accent or African. I have not heard from him at all since I refused to pay for his phone credits on 9/9/08. I have since been contacted by men from Chemistry and with the same story. I reported all the profiles to the sites. It seems that those dating websites are infested with scammers.
