I know I had submitted my scammer two days ago and wasn't sure but I AM SURE now my scammer is using the name of ALAN ARMSTRONG all the information given to me adds up to the profile of a NIGERIAN SCAMMER.

I met 'Alan' through Match.com received a very nice short email with the photos of a handsome warm hearted looking man on June 8 2008. I felt hook and sinker for it. I was innocent and naive about these dating/romance scammers. I am very SAD and heartbroken about it. This is what his profile showed:

LIFESEED
'A relationship starts with a step forward, Are you ready to step Forward?'
45 year old man
Greater Manchester, UK
Widowed
1 daughter (later introduced with photos as KELLY)
White/Caucasian
Occupation: Petroleum Engineer
Oil and gas Industries

He gave me a telephone number in the UK 44-703-5902-664.

When I called him one day after he said I should feel free to call anytime, weird things happened. got disconnected, somehow the voice on the telephone was not as I Imagined the voice of the sweet face man would be, deep voice with a slight french accent, at first he would not really speak as clearly, his voice sounded even more attractive to me.
We immediately at his request got on YAHOO IM and our romance took off rather quickly between our conversations on IM and a number of emails with beautiful loving words, the greatest romance ever........I FELT completely FOR IT.
For almost two months now, our fervent love was going so well.......with plans of meeting each other in my country......after he returns from a project/job in NIGER-DELTA. AFRICA.
ALL was going great for me...-so I thought -.....until while in Nigeria his daughter had an accident falling off a stair case..........'and the most horrible thing is that I do not have enough money to pay the hospital bill'.
POOR me ....so in love sent him money to pay off the bill.. his undying love for me continues.......... We have continued to be in touch and for the last two weeks at least he encountered a new problem paying the VAT taxes (Value Added Taxes) for his pay check, before he can return to the UK and needs me to help him with US$10,000.00 !!!! for his salary payment of US$500,000 - sent me a 'copy' of the pay out order.

With a name like ALAN ARMSTRONG fron the UK I believed everything he said and because of this I've given him a number of my photos, my real addresses, he knows I am real and my profession is for real.!!!

My suspicions grew to my alarm after I started checking the poetic romantic phrases he wrote me on YIM and in his email messages........and to my dismay I found the majority of them in websites like LOVINGYOU.COM, MERE MORTALS, ROMANCESCAM.COM verbatim almost every word, with the exception of the first two emails, where he shows more spelling mistakes, the rest of the messages are all great copy paste jobs. Almost nothing he has said to me came from him directly!!

His writings are not original the smooth talker is good at copy / pasting.

I am unto him, now........but MY GOD how much it hurts me to realize my KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR IS NOTHING but a smooth operator scammer, in NIGERIA........probably from NIGERIA.

Below i share his last email, after I am stalling on sending him the US$10,000 asking him to send me a recent photo of him and his daugher together as proof of life and confirm his ID so I can go ahead and send him the money.........

My queen ....
Thanks for your mail, i have really miss talking to you this morning,......I know that neither one of us had in mind that we would meet someone on the Internet and fall in love but it has happened. And for that, I have no regrets. In fact, it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in years. For this, and what has happened to us and between us I have you to thank.

For the past months, you have brought so much joy to me that words can never explain... you have brought so much life back into a lifeless body and we have not even met face to face. I know and realize what it is to LOVE again and to feel loved.

I never thought it would last this long, but it has. This is a clear indication that we have so much in common and we are building on something that is real. I hope we get the chance to see this thing through,....honey as you said in your mail you beleive in me,.. i beleive in you too all we need here is trust and good faith not proves and daught.....honey you mean the world to me i have vowed to God that i want to spend the rest of my life loving you everyday

There have been hard times, bad times and good times, but with that comes lonely times. We have reached new and higher grounds with what we have shared in the past months, and I would do it all over again with you if I had to. I have no regrets.

I am sending you this to let you know that I have been sent an angel to be with me, and you are that angel.

Please understand that we have so much to give to each other and I look forward to that day. I believe it is closer now than ever before. It is just that there may be a few more obstacles that we need to clear up, and I think you know what I am talking about. Besides that, we can and I know we will survive,...please honey if you love me like you said you will help me without daught....i am here to join my faith with your's honey....please dont let me down nobody else in this world know how we truely feel for each other
I do love you
ALAN

His original first email:
How are you doing today, i hope you are having a nice day.I am Alan Armstrong i am from United Kingdom and i am a petroleum engineer,i just joined the site in search of love then i saw your profile which really captivated my attention, I like to get to understand who you are what you want our of life and a relationship, I believe from what i read in your profile.Your best feature is your heart, I saw so much light in you that I was drawn to mail you. You are so lighthearted and your smile so full of joy, i know that love can not bring understanding but understanding can bring about love, i believe there is a lot we need to learn from each orther, they say a bird at hand is better than thousand in the sky, i will love to know what you want as a person, right from the first time i saw you i knew there is a connection between us you can contact be with my personal email account as i do not come on this site offen alanarms1//AT//yahoo/./com. I hope to hear from you soon
Alan

I have more email messages, and saved YIM conversations.........HAS ANYONE SEEN THIS PHOTO BEFORE........DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS GUY?
PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG!!

I suggested to him to seek help at the BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER but he says they cannot help because he is there on a consultant basis, the bristish ambassador is on leave..........he also given me a telephone number in NIGERIA where I have spoken to him a couple of times...........HE HAS A SEXY DEEP VOICE WITH A SLIGHT FRENCH ACCENT.
Today we are still in touch through YIM and I still have received more loving messages, but now his main focus of conversation is my supporting him with paying this TAX.

There is no doubt ALAN scammed me of $1,100 plus western union charges. paid in NIGERIA with Francs, approximately 453,000 + francs.

As soon as he arrived in AFRICA he was on YIM and gave me this phone number in NIGERIA 2347034623334
ADDRESS IN NGA: 6 HOPE CRESENT GOVERNMENT RESERVATION AREA BENIN CITY EDO STATE.
BANK ADDRESS: SKYE BANK # 2 FORESTRY ROAD BENIN CITY

Loosing the money HURTS but what HURST more is the emotional disappointment of falling in love with someone who is NOT REAL and will never be part of my real world. He doesn't know how much I know now about his scam. I need to stop all communication but I need to do it SAFELY as he has my information.

It helps to keep in mind that the photos of this man are in all likelihood stolen with the real owner not even aware of this!! But that the man behind YIM and the sexy voice is a NIGERIAN posing as someone else.

It is difficult for me to share this BUT I want to help someone else AVOID being the victim of this SCUMBAG SCAMMER FROM NIGERIA.

The first 2 photos were in his MATCH.COM PROFILE. He gave me the 3rd PHOTO. The last Photo is the one he is using now on YAHOO IM. I have examined the photo closely and it is the photo of the same person.

YOUR COMMENTS WILL BE ENCOURAGING AND APPRECIATED.

Painfully aware of a scammer........but fighting back the SCUMBAGS...

Becareful ladies....
he even told me that he needs to have a week business trip to'RUSSIA', i asked him where he's in RUSSIA....if he's in his office.....He said yes..but all of sudden, he told me that he goes off and off coz' the the line in hotel isnt' stable......(office ..hotel..office...?!!!)

hahaha......what a joke~~~
he even couldn't tell me...what he's seeing in RUSSIA..when i asked him what time is there....it takes a few mins to reply..( i bet he needed to check it from internet)

Plus he claimed that he's born and educated in the states...., but his accent is definately Not the american accent!


Do hate people use God's name when trying to scam people! I pray that one day he would realize that it is just so wrong to do that.

I'm lucky as My GOD does listen my prayers...and protect me all the way.. + I'm constantly in God's protection too. Thanks GOD for kept me from falling into this 'FRANKIN RICHARD COLES trap. (i believe this is not his real name)

I wish that one day he would realize what he or 'the scammers' group' ve been doing are so evil and that all scammers would come back to the right path.

hi i too have come across alex jones but this time on the australian dating website RSVP.his story was that he had run over a little nigerian girl.all this happened after five/six weeks of emailing,chatting and phoning.however this guy has an english/american accent.seems to change.also an oil engineer but this time claiming to live in sydney.then a couple of weeks after we began our contact he said he was going to london on business and then some time later said he had to also go to the delta in nigeria.begun to ask me for money over a week ago and i realised something was odd and everyone around me warned me they could smell a scammer.i have not sent him any money but last night again asked for money.then last night i discovered your website and there he was.same person.i have different photos but it is him.just called me a few moments ago and i told him he had been discovered and now he tells me the man on this website is not him even though the name is the same and the photos he sent me are of the same man as on this website.
rsvp dating website are investigating him they have informed me.

he spent about six weeks buttering me up but my friends and i kept on saying the same thing.if it is too good to be true it's because it is.

i am glad that i now know for sure he is the nigerian scammer as part of me was very concerned about this little girl he had claimed was in intensive care due to his reckless driving and who later supposedly died.

so judging from the dates of the entries i have so far read i seem to be his last victim.

i really hope we can prevent other women from falling for his games and incredibly sweet words.

i hope my entry will help you

Thank you for all those who commented. This site has help me not be scammed. It started with the same contact from Match.com and the serious of poetic emails and ims. I am attaching pictures used. The of NASH GRINER was used. Living in USA, NC, and on business in Africa. First read flag. I then copy his terms used and searched the site which landed me here. I know this is hurtful, but that all who are alerting other people. You did have save one person, me.

I wanted to thank you all for posting your info here. My mom was speaking to a gentleman going by the name of Dean Barry O'Connor from a christian dating site. I googled his name and came across this site. His story was very similar to the posting earlier but his son was in Nigeria with his grandmother. The picture posted on the site (the profile was deleted soon after) was the second photo (on the boat) under the same name in the listing above.

Believe me when I say you are not the only one scammed. I was not scammed by this man, but by another. I fell deeply in love with him and lost 6,000. I had to refinance my home to get this mess taken care of. I don't understand how a man can say so many wonderful things and not mean one of them. Hang in there and hopefully we have leanred our lesson. I feel a big void in my life without him, but I know he is not worth a dime.....
