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...

Please listen to what Agent 86 say to you now

If you aloud any contact with this scammer

you are also giving him the permittance to scam

you and collect all info about you,and wait for the

money question?? i mean that you can wait if you are

unlycky a very long time,do you really think it is

worth it?? i mean there is no one who is untouchable

in the long run,these scammers are proffesional

brainwashers,computerexperts and psychopaths...

I have met victims here at this site who has been close

to make suicide,because they have been so victmised by

the scammer and felt so much shame and guilt that

they have been fooled in this way,,,,

do you want to end like that??? When you have an

weak moment that scammer will get youre soul...and brain

so dont play a game that you maybe cant handle

because it could be youre very last play also...

take an real concidering about this and block this

scammer and stop all contact with this scammer now.

I too, have been scammed by the man that goes by Barry O'Connor. Only for me, he calls himself Eric Best, email afexmillion1@yahoo.com. His daughter, Franca, francytwinkle also came online to chat with me. He asked me for money for his daughter to go on a class trip also. He said he was in Tikrit at the time and to make a long story short, I have the exact same pictures listed here, and the 'pier' story is the same. I fell madly for him. I am heart broken. He now states that he has lost everything and needs money to come back to america. Says he lived in Bham, AL. I hope others see's this and protects their heart and wallet.

Here is the infamous pier scene
I want you to know somethings you made me went through in the night when i was sleeping.
Last night, in my dreams, I saw you on the pier. The wind was blowing through your hair, and your eyes held the fading sunlight. I was speechless as I watched you leaning against the rail. You are beautiful, I thought as I saw you, a vision that I could never find in anyone else. I slowly began to walk toward you, and when you finally turned to me, I noticed that others had been watching you as well. 'Do you know her?' they asked me in jealous whispers, and as you smiled at me I simply answered with the truth, 'Better than I know myself.'
I have the same two pictures posted here.
