Other Comments: 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:
'A relationship starts with a step forward, Are you ready to step Forward?'
45 year old man
Greater Manchester, UK
1 daughter (later introduced with photos as KELLY)
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
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
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...

OLÁ PESSOAL, ALGUÉM SABE ME DIZER ALUMA COISA SOBRE KENNETH EMIRY. ALGUÉM, TALVEZ UM SCAMMER SE RELACIONOU COMIGO MOSTRANDO ESTA FOTO. EU ACREDITO QUE A FOTO NÃO ERA DA PESSOA QUE ESTAVA CONVERSANDO COMIGO.
SE ALGUÉM SOUBER OU CONHECER ESTA CRIANÇA E ESTE PAI, POR FAVOR ME RETORNE PORQUE EU GOSTARIA DE SABER QUEM É ELES REALMENTE E MUITO DE CONHECÊ-LOS PESSOALMENTE
ESTE É O SITE ONDE ESTÁ OS DADOS E AS FOTOS DE KENNETH EMIRY
I am a: 45-year-old man
zodiac sign: Leo
located in: New York, New York, United States
looking for: 30 - 60-year-old woman
race: Native American
marital status: Widowed
eye color: Brown
hair color: Black
body type: Average
height: 5' 7'' (170cm)
drinking: Non drinker
smoking: Non smoker
food: Non Vegetarian
I have seen the name of MILTON GOWAN before another alias used by SCAMMER ALAN ARMSTRONG. When checked username COLDNIGHTS3 in Match.com, username is not found. This is typical of a scammer deleting the profile, perhaps after he has found a potential victim.
As to the information you published for KENNETH EMIRY in his basic profile please note these important clues that you are dealing with a SCAMMER:
WIDE GAP OF AGE GROUP 30-60 years old woman.
RACE: NATIVE AMERICAN - observe clearly the man and child's photos - they DO NOT fit the 'appearance' of a NATIVE AMERICAN. Usually this race group refers to INDIAN AMERICANS.
MARITAL STATUS: WIDOWED - ask how he became a widower it is usually a SOB story
COLOR OF EYES: BROWN - Observe that the eyes of the man in the photo are clearly NOT BROWN.
These clues show inconsistencies true to SCAMMERS as usually they use several aliases and photos of different innocent people. SCAMMERS by and large write and speak poor English. If/When you speak to the man on the telephone usually the way the man speaks does not really match the photo/image.
THANK YOU, GRACIE, GRACIAS, for publishing this information on here and please be careful, ask lots of questions, trust your instinct - and definetely DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY OR GIFTS under any SOB story. In any case a man who wants your money is a man NOT WORTH YOUR TIME.
BUT don't give up either; there are real people on dating sites really searching to find THE ONE. I know I've met some nice and real people.

THANKFUL FOR HIS His GUIDELINES ON KENNETH EMIRY.
I AM BRAZILIAN AND I DON´T KNOW the PATHS IN EUROPE.
SOMEONE COULD GIVE ME AN TIP OR OPINION OF HOW COULD I FIND THE MAN AND THE CHILD IN THE PHOTO (KENNETY EMIRY)ABOUT SCAMMERS.
THE BRIDAL DRESSES WHICH ARE USING, HAVE THE SYMBOL OF THE FOOTBALL CLUB MANCHESTER UINTED.
It SEEMS THAT THEY they ARE MEMBERS OF THE TIME OF MANCHESTER UNITED FOOTBALL.
THE CLUB OF THE MANCHESTER, CAN WOULD BE A WAY?
My dear Brazilian friend what further comment may I provide you with about the photo you provided of KENNETH EMERY and CHILD by their appearance I would say that they appear to be of two handsome BRITISH subjects and these probably are. BUT how do we know these photos are TRULY of the man you are in contact with, you would not know for sure unless you get more information from the man. Bear in mind the man can tell you anything online. But you can ask more questions.
It is practically impossible to ID these photos as many times they use photos of innocent people or those of models they STOLE online. The questions you need to ask of this KENNETH EMERY in my opinion among others should be:
Telephone number and speak to him - does he sound like a NATIVE AMERICAN or does he have another accent.
Does he have one of those CAMERAS you can see him online?
Ask him all the personal questions that would indicate he is who he says he is:
How he became a WIDOWER? (this is a typical status listed by SCAMMERS to create empathy) Simpatia.
Look through the SCAMMERS photo gallery on www.romancescam.com It is a slow process but this photo may be posted there and that would confirm more details. If not keep checking. And remember NEVER SEND MONEY or GIFTS.

Thank God i watch Dr Phil. I saw a show on this sort of thing not too long ago. Mack Jones stole my heart and crushed it as if it were nothing to him. What a creep. He IMed me thru the Love and Seek website. God i wish i would have googled his name the 1st time he wrote me. I wont make that mistake again. He fell in love with me instantly. Thank God I never gave him my phone # or address. He gave me the whole story about being from San Diego and raising his son Sean all by himself. He swore on his parents grave that he would never hurt me. Said his wife left him and moved to Russia after he kicked her out for having an affair with his best friend. He said he was on contract working in Nigeria and would be home at the end of this month. As soon as he gained my trust he asked me for money. All playing on my sympathy for his young son that had to go to the hospital for Malaria. When I told him I couldnt give him any money he wanted my charge card information stating that he could not use his charge card in Africa. But he would contact his credit card company and have them make a payment to my card so that i could wire him money from my card. I told him that it would be better for him to contact his credit card company to have them wire the money to him there. He said that wouldnt work. Go figure that it would work from my card though. Thank god i am not that stupid. I caught on at that point and told him i could not help him.
I got all those nice letters and pictures, the one on the beach, the one of Sean, and the one on the horse with sean and the one with his ex-wife as stated in the previous postings. All of his letters were very well written. not like the IMs he sends that are written in broken english which had me alittle suspicious from the beginning which made me belive he was born somewhere other than the US. Then again i thought that he was just typing in a hurry and not realizing what he had typed. This guy is not from here, he is some A**Hole in Nigeria playing on lonely womens hearts.
if he does not want to make a phone call to you but is so in love with you that is another sure sign he is hiding something
Please I advise anyone out there that meets anyone on line to google them 1st to make sure they are not some piece of S**t that wants to mess with your emotions. You totally suck you piece of Crap. thank you for wasting my time and tearing at my already broken heart after all you know that i just went thru in my last relationship. is this REAL enough for you a**hole? Eat S*** and die.

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 someone could love me like you do, but guess what? I love you that much too.
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 you love me too.
I know that others looking into our relationship might think that we're saying too many foolish things too soon but they just don't know how we feel about each other. There's nothing foolish about the things I've told you, I meant every word I said. I love you and for you and D.
I would do anything, I love you both so much. Today I promise you that I would do anything in my power to make you a great person, outstanding father and loving husband. I LOVE YOU!!

This is one of the mails I´ve from Dave Moreh ....I feel bad to fall in love Thank God I´ve found this site I like to know .... is Dave real ???
Dear Friend in Germany can you post more photos of DAVE MOREH do you have any showing his face? What I can tell you if the man has already asked you for MONEY that is a BIG RED ALARM BELL that must go off. Sounds like this man is another SCUMBAG SCAMMER using photos of innocent victims or STOLEN online.
The content of the email DAVE MOREH sent you is the typical garbage verbage used by SCAMMERS already deeply in love with you. How long have you known him, how much information do you have from him that would be helpful to comment further. AND SEND NO MONEY or GIFTS!!

Hello anonymous Thank you for this comment yes I ´ve more photos and mails from Dave.
look to : how to run... script I´m not so trainrd in pc technical that is why the photos is in the wrong page ! I´m sad my english is not perfekt . Dave had invit me to chat in the ' Meetic.de ' It was my last accountday there, also mailed we trough ' windows live '
since Nov.08 .... the 15 Dec 08 would Dave on business travel with his son Sam to Accra Ghana . Dave is cardealer. Every mail every chat dave altimes was friendly and show interess to my children .they chatted too !! The 05.Jan was Sam´s Birthday I´ve send an package to surprise Sam .Dave sayed I should send it to jis driver : Stockert Nyame.
But....The 03.Jan Sam is falling down a step in the hotel and was in the Korli Bu Teachering Hospital in Accra...Dave ask me for money 1200€ to pay the bill and drugs. Dave sayed I was the only one he cut ask.,because over there his creditcard not would be acceptabel. I would help him but I have no money. I called the German Embassy in Accra to ask why I can help. That is why Dave mean it was to me when we do
lose Sam.(I´ve one photo from Sam in the hospital )
The Germ.Emb. called the hospital . ... There is no child with this name .( I´ve an mail from the German Embassy to show me why the people in Ghana does ...an warning !)

He safed his pasport to Dr. Jerry Grant and contacted his partner for money .Then would Dave show me his love to me trough all his money transfer about the business in Accra should go to the bank in Germany where I should creat an account for Dave.

Because he must do his business 14 days longer. AGAIN ...I tould Dave : I´ve no money !!!
Still ...Dave sent me again lovely mails. ? ! ? Is he not angry ???
What shal I do now ??? Greets from Germany S.K.
Dear Friend in Germany. After reading the additional information about this DAVE MOREH I have no doubt this man is a SCAMMER and a potentially serious CRIMINAL. Please, please STOP all communication with this man. The man you are in contact with is not the people on the photographs but a black African man who will continue to try his best to SCAM you off your money.
The story of this DAVE MOREH and his son SAM is very similar to that of a man by the name of CALVIN STEWART and his son ERIC I was chatting with through Windows Live Messenger back in October 2008. Calvin a WHITE man claimed to be an American living in the UK. The owner of a car dealership selling European cars out of Germany, mainly MERCEDEZ BENZ and BMWs. I chatted with him to get information as I knew he was a SCAMMER. Even when he claimed to be in the UK the couple of emails he sent me showed that his original IP ADDRESS was out of GHANA. Shortly after we met he announced that he would be traveling to ACCRA GHANA with his only son to sell cars. He also claimed to be a WIDOWER looking for a mother for his son. The photos were different but the story is very, very similar.
I followed on his game until he “arrived” at his hotel in ACCRA GHANA. At which time I cut all contact as I knew the next part of his story was that he would be having an emergency and would be asking me for MONEY and whatever else. Blah, blah, blah!
He too was very interested to know about my family and promised to travel after GHANA to my country to meet up with me and my family.
My recommendation and WARNING to you is to STOP all contact with this SCAMMER. DO NOT OPEN ANY BANK account for him as you may end up in serious trouble with the law of your country. BEWARE that he is playing with your emotions to gain your trust, as you are willing to help him by opening a bank account for which he will send you FAKE documents and even FAKE cheques or even currency for which by your involvement you can be held accountable for FRAUD.
If you continue contact he will be persistant. Tell him that you WILL wait for him to arrive in Germany and for himself to open his own BANK accounts. But better. STOP ALL CONTACT.
