This is the address this scammer gave me. There was a Ricardo at this address and he told me to be careful who I meet on the internet. This scammer sent me pics of a daughter he called Kate. And also of himself. I am sure they are not him!! He wanted me to send 800.00 to him because he was robbed and shot at!! He also said his daughter was badly hurt in the hospital. I am scared now because he has pics of me and my kids and I am afraid of being a part of this scam!! He also has my phone # and address. I gave it to him long before he asked for the money!! Stupid me!

Sounds like part of a group of scammers my very own scammer GREG SMITH is part of... or maybe the same guy. Sucks to be me. I fell for it. Don't talk to these people. here is my story so you will hopefully break away (anyone who is reading this)... similar stories. there is always a variation so don't think your 'guy' is NOT a scammer. REAL MEN don't ask women for money. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS ... 10/2011 OMG.(Google key words, UK DATING SCAMS, OIL RIG ENGINEER).. I wish I had read this website four months ago when I first got involved with a man named GREG SMITH who claimed to be Norwegian born, of an Italian father and Norwegian Mother...Both parents dead, he was tragically (UM, right!!) widowed when his wife died after complications due to birthing his now 10 year old son, 48 years old, with 2 kids Jennifer and Calvin (15 and 10 years old, respectively. ) His poor kids were in a boarding school and he just wanted to be a family. He was raised in the US part time (MINNESOTA of all places, went to university at University of Min and studied Mechanical Engineering and then finished further studies in CHINA to get his chemical license. He worked for Scotland Oil Rig as an employee till his then living wife complained that he was gone too much so he decided to get his international contractors license in chemical engineering and went back to school) So now is an International Petroleum or Chemical Engineer. He found me on Face Book and I wondered how my name came up. WE discussed that at length and he explained that he was new to FB and that my name came up as 'is this someone you know'... My name is Vivian and uncannily, his late wife was named Vivian (his mother , too… should have been my first clue) and that is what sparked his interest in me. We wrote only via FB email at first. I would write and he would reply. Eventually, he wrote less and less and wanted to just speak on the phone. I guess so he would not leave a trail … he called me “my love, my darling, my angel, my Vivi” but always some very endearing name. His accent was strange.. a mixture of Italian and some other stuff I couldn't place (I have spent some time in Europe and have a penchant for identifying accents but his was STRANGE) yet, he spoke no Italian as I am fluent in Spanish and speak a little Italian since the languages have similarities) He talked about being in love very soon which was my first warning sign. I protested but frankly I was flattered because he was good looking and his voice was so kind on the phone. I tried to be smart, I looked up scammers on the internet but NONE of the stories I just read on this site came up. I researched for eight hours that day but couldn't find his name (DUH... I am a Smith so I assumed that he was really a SMITH)... anyway, he asked me for money one day after a few months and I hung up on him and defriended him on FB. He was so bewildered (ha) and called and called and FB messaged me begging me to tell me what was wrong ... why had I done this... so I figured ..ok... surely a scammer would just go away now ...I RE FRIENDED him and he agreed he should have never asked for money and would never do it again. I was too important to him... he didn't want that to come between us!
Then he asked what he could do to make me trust him. I said, make our friendship public on my FB page among other things. So we did that and he commented on photos (sparingly) and one day he posted my picture on his FB and his 'friends' commented on the post and asked who is this and he posted very openly that I was 'HIS LOVE'..... The email relationship was good but I always wanted him to be more specific (OH GEEZ) and I asked questions on the phone (he called me 2 and 3 times a day and oh was he a sweetheart. THE PERFECT man... Like he read a romance novel or something. Very poetic statements and sentiments.... always complimenting me. Then he got awarded a contract and he was short $5,000 (despite having put in $50,000 to start the contract moving forward, he said) to fund his need to go to China and get chemicals to do the job.. very vague about answering my questions and I asked for detail so he sent me the most convoluted story In writing but it seemed so true all at the same time..(had to fly to CHINA for chemicals and get them made into a powdered form to ship to SCOTLAND OIL RIG, his employer, etc. etc.)... but he got prickly when I asked him questions and he never called for long unless I raised the concern about it and then suddenly he would call me for a long chat because he 'made' time for me to show me how important I was. He began hating face book in the midst of our “relationship” …claimed he was a very private person and got angry if I told my family or friends about him …. Because every time I told someone about him, they looked at me like I had lost my mind and said are you sure he isn’t scamming…… when I mentioned how hurt I was that my family didn’t want to acknowledge him till they met him, he was angry that I said something to them. ANGRY!? Then he would say “sorry, I just don’t know why they don’t think someone could love you as much as I do”… The anger was ridiculous. Now I see it so clearly. He just didn’t want anyone keeping him from getting his money from me. He asked for money again about three weeks after the FIRST money inquiry. I think his goal may have been to get the $5,000 total. I was angry that he brought up the money again and told him so...he backed off, then would call again and eventually the conversation would come back around to it (shaking my head at my own stupidity at this point) he pressed and pressed and frankly I was in too deep this time but I said no and then he called the next day and was morose and moody and I felt so BAD for him. So about a week later, I sent $900. He gave me a western union location in China and asked me to put it in his workers name JING XIAN FU (which probably means ' you dumb chick ' in Chinese) and that JING would take him to get it since he didn't know the language. BTW..i forgot to add that this Greg's business partner died tragically about six months ago and the dear, widowed wife and her three kids were suffering financially since his death so 'superhero' Greg wanted to help them with the contract money once he got paid. He was so NOBLE ... oh he had stories of asking a friend for the money (some one who GREG had helped before and who told him no) So he was humiliated and found out the guy wasn't really a friend and called me to SADLY relay the story... OH I FELT just awful for him. Eventually he sold his car for 1000 even though it was worth so much more ... so then he only needed 4000... and then his cousin in Italy sent him another 1000 so now he just needed a little more... later I sent him another sum and I was HAPPY to do it... silly me. I fought him the whole way as he worked and worked to convince me and frankly I am completely ashamed. He was convincing but the flags kept popping up... However his promises to me (eternal love and all that crap) Long story, short, he was going to come and visit this week... he was going to wire me the money tomorrow before he came so I would have it immediately and then was getting on a plane mid week. (tomorrow is when he got Paid for his contract)... at the last minute, he conveniently got angry with me for posting that I was excited he was going to come and visit soon...also angry because I mentioned to him on the same call that I needed him to come on and prove everyone wrong because my family and friends were saying that they were worried that he might be a scammer....and I kept defending him to them (by lying that I had not sent him money. Another clue that I should have paid attention to. If you hide it from the people that love you the most, then it is NOT GOOD)

(I know I know ... I am a fool). He said I violated his privacy by announcing his arrival (SERIOUSLY?) (perhaps he was afraid I would have the FBI meet him at the airport... LOL I wish ) He basically became an instant monster on the phone and super callous (this side of him I had NEVER seen before - put on your big surprise face!)... he instantly stopped calling as much and when he did call it was brief and angry ... so then he called last night to say, I am so sorry and I love you ... I overreacted... So I was so Happy... then he called today and all hell broke loose. . .. we talked some more; he railed against me for doubting him and said he missed his late wife because she would never have doubted him (geez dude) and then the call dropped. (OH! forgot to add that once he left China, his phone that I had the number to BROKE mysteriously.... wouldn't answer HOW it got broken and he had tragically inhaled some chemicals - he even did some convincing wheezing) and suddenly I couldn't reach him anymore once he was 'safely' out of China and in Aberdeen Scotland. KEY piece to this story since he was always available previously. He had always said, I don't care when you call... u are my love .. anytime you need me .. call me. He always answered and was SO happy to hear from me too.) So as I take up where I left off, our final call (tonight) dropped. He didn't call back. I FB'd him and said 'hey the call dropped, please call me' He FB 'd back that he would call tomorrow. I emailed him that I wanted to end on a positive note since he had turned into a great hairy monster and he ignored me. So I wrote to him a few other times and shamelessly begged him to at least be man enough to call me and end things on a positive note if he was so unhappy ........ I then, as a last desperate attempt to convince myself that I wasn't a complete victim... I sent the nearest Western Union address and said please send me the money when you get paid. His response, to block me from his FB account. Now I cannot pull him up or message him. Okay, so MY GUESS is that he is a darn scamming son of a gun and that I am out my money. I hope like heck this saves someone else from getting mistreated. BTW very important that his area code in UK is 703 (596-2923)...when I first tried to call him, I could not get through on my cell. I found out recently that the area code has been blocked by the UK to all cell phone carriers (sprint and t mobile are two that I spoke to) due to the LARGE AMOUNT of scamming in that specific AREA CODE there. Information I could have used previously, but heck, I don't know that I would have listened then... I just thought it was a miracle and frankly I have been an idiot. Please just don't get involved with anyone if your alarm bells are going off... You have those darn alarm bells for a reason ... LISTEN TO THEM... I wish I had done so.... DANGIT. Just call me 'BITTER, PARTY OF ONE' PS - Shamefully, I might add the small tidbit that I am a big girl and that I think he may have targeted me because BIG is not always the most popular look in this world so maybe he knew I might be a little less appreciated by the opposite sex and someone who may be a bit lonely.... I hate that I proved him right. I mean no insult to anyone's physical appearance, however, I think it is wise to acknowledge that these people choose their targets with some thought as to how nurturing they may be.

So I wrote to him a few other times and shamelessly begged him to at least be man enough to call me and end things on a positive note if he was so unhappy ........ I then, as a last desperate attempt to convince myself that I wasn't a complete victim... I sent the nearest Western Union address and said please send me the money when you get paid. His response, to block me from his FB account. Now I cannot pull him up or message him. Okay, so MY GUESS is that he is a darn scamming son of a gun and that I am out my money. I hope like heck this saves someone else from getting mistreated. BTW very important that his area code in UK is 703 (596-2923)...when I first tried to call him, I could not get through on my cell. I found out recently that the area code has been blocked by the UK to all cell phone carriers (sprint and t mobile are two that I spoke to) due to the LARGE AMOUNT of scamming in that specific AREA CODE there. Information I could have used previously, but heck, I don't know that I would have listened then... I just thought it was a miracle and frankly I have been an idiot. Please just don't get involved with anyone if your alarm bells are going off... You have those darn alarm bells for a reason ... LISTEN TO THEM... I wish I had done so.... DANGIT. Just call me 'BITTER, PARTY OF ONE' PS - Shamefully, I might add the small tidbit that I am a big girl and that I think he may have targeted me because BIG is not always the most popular look in this world so maybe he knew I might be a little less appreciated by the opposite sex and someone who may be a bit lonely.... I hate that I proved him right. I mean no insult to anyone's physical appearance, however, I think it is wise to acknowledge that these people choose their targets with some thought as to how nurturing they may be.

It sounded like the scammer I met on line 6 months ago...unfortunately, there are bad people you meet online that spoils and exploits your online dating experience. After exchanging emails/text/phone conversations for at least 3 months with this one particular guy who claimed to be a genuine person but actually gave me a fake name and for sure used a stolen picture, totally destroyed my trust, and hurt my feelings. I believe in Karma - 'you reap what you sow, you sow what you reap'. The day will come when these people will be punished for their sins!

Wow. sounds irdentical to the scammer that i have been in contact with, a Mukhtar Osuman, whom i have looked up and found to be a singer, this is a made up name for him. He is no singer, have tried singing to me but it is clearly not the guy that is the real singer, the pic's he sent to my email are one of a dark skinned person and the singer is light complexion, like possibly mixed race, this guy had not been asking for money but have now started coming up with lame excuses about monies, and ask the question, you understand. His first time asking for money was supposedly during the time a family member (grandmother) had died, and he had to come up with monies to help pay for her funeral, and that he needed monies to buy food, for himself and his family, stated he would have to sell some of his jewlery to get money to buy food to last him until he got paid again a month away, then started saying his boss had a taxi that he want to sale for fifteen hundred dollars, and he could get someone to drive it, mind you he has no license himself, what the hell is he going to do with a car he can't drive, he claimed he could just give the person who drove the car monies at the end of the month. He used to call me continuously, we talked until wee hours of the night, then all of a sudden calls started getting fewer and fewer i know it is because I didn't give him the money, i asked him was this so, he said no, he stated that I don't trust him, I sure don't, I am use to men taking care of the woman, not asking for money from the woman, be careful because they go about a round about way of asking you instead of coming right out asking you, downright conniving, you listen closely, you can hear his other phone rings, and you can hear him typing, he use to come online im messenger, but not anymore, he knows you will see him chatting with someone else. Now when I call he don't answer, he calls every blue moon, Phone drops supposedly all of a sudden start saying hello, can you hear me, or are you there, then hang up, has a magick jack number, asked me for monies to pay his bill, i didn't give it to him, but now claims someone a friend of his paid for it for him. I tell you that will eventually reap what they sow, this is a very good sight, I thank you all, and if we continue to post it iwill eventually get them cut or put them out of buisness.

please look out for a Steven Lehlbach, Stevens Lehlbachs or a Dominic Waldburg...claims he is adopted, originally from Germany living in the US for the past 11 years. Said he inherited a huge house in Massachusetts when his dad died 11 years ago..Father never married so he has no brothers or sisters or even an adopted mother. He claims he has a dog named Charmain and that he is a geologists doing some research in Nigeria. He wants to be famous and is going to write a book. But he needs money first he is going to buy some Nigerian paintings and send them to you so you can keep the money but you have to help him buy them. Then if that does not prompt you to send money he will need a machine that is so hard to find in Nigeria and it is really expensive and he has to rent it. He has to pay a downpayment so he can use the machine. Then if you fall for that one he will need money because he has exceeded his travel allowance and is really coming to see you. Oh by the way he works in boots all day and so he needs you to send him some shoes and flip flops because his feet hurts so badly.
he will send you poetry that he gets off google so you can check those yourself and he will also send you love letters that he gets off google.. He is computer literate and can find anything that he wants and send the links to you. please be aware. He was on Facebook and has an email address on yahoo...its lehlbachs@yahoo.com. I am not sure if he is on any dating sites. he is very smooth. he will not talk to you very long if you refuse to send him anything and gets angry if you talk to anyone who he has been talking to.
the last I heard was that he was kidnapped and beaten and shot at while he was on the way to the airport heading back to the US. His leg got cut really badly and he had to be taken to the hospital where the Dr. lent him a phone so you will be able to call him and the Dr. also let him use his computer so he could email you asking to send him some polos, jeans, flipflops and a cell phone. But the cell phone he needs is either a Blackberry touch or and Iphone 4 as he would like to send you pictures.

Thanks for the tip on Dominic Waldburg. He contacted me on fb and we have been sending messages bath and forth from his yahoo account which is dominicwaldburg@yahoo.com. All of the things above are true. He claims to be in love with you and can't get you off his mind and is coming to visit you soon. In Nigeria, geologist in Zuma Rock and wants to be famous. Sends poems and love songs. Hasn't asked for any money from me as of yet because I would not go for that. I'm older woman and told him I just wanted to be friends but he insists he's in love and wants to come and visit me and be with me forever. Just too good to be true, has a picture out there looking very handsome which I'm sure is not him at all. Spoke to him via calling card and something about his voice just didn't match picture of him. Born in Berlin Germany and lives in Marlborough Mass and has been in Zuma Rock for three weeks.
Can't believe the extreme measures people will go thru to scam an innocent person. I'm lucking for doing my homework and he has nothing from me. I blocked him three times from facebook and he would find a way to find me again. I'm blocking him for good this time and don't want anything to do with him at all. It's a shame that some woman fall for these types of scammers thru being too trusting but believe me do your homework and no one will scam you. I'm one of the lucky ones.

I wrote about my prior encounter with Dominic Waldburg or so he says it's his name but I did want to list his cell phone number I spoke to him on it's 0112348082994480 in Nigeria. His voice does not match up to picture he posted when he contacted me on FB so beware of this one. He is really smooth. Never asked for money from me but wrote alot of poems and sent love songs thru yahoo. If you block him on FB, he always finds a way of finding you and is very persistant. Please be careful of this one and don't for any reason send him any money. Play your cards right and don't befriend him. He is slick but not slick enough for me.

Dear Ms. Marple

Please check this photo. I got message from this profile and I'm not sure about to responding. I think that this person is not the same on the picture. Once I was scammed but I was smart not to provide my information or anything else.


Thank you

One month of pure romance, today, I discovered 'Mark Wilson', is not who he says he is. I looked up his IP address, it lead me to Accra Ghana Africa... interestingly enough, I mailed a birthday present to him there as one of his 'collegues' was looking at possible oil rig site as he is 'currently working on a rig in Dublin'. Met him on christianmingle.com, he claims to be half Swedish, has an 11 y/o daughter named Tracey who lives with his ex-wife in Nashville, TN... claims he purchased a $625k home in Sarasota 3 months ago before he had to leave for his job on a rig in Dublin. His email address is: mwilson6015@yahoo.com, claims to be 52, and 6'3'. He wanted to chat on Yahoo messenger, I did not. We spoke on the phone, much of which was on my dime. Today, I received a red flag email, so I googled his paragraphs and each paragraph was copied from online dating scammers. This is what it said, so beware: Inside of me there is a place where my sweetest dreams reside, where my highest hopes are kept alive, where my deepest feelings are felt and where my favorite memories are safe and warm. I find that you're on my mind more often than any other thought. Sometimes I bring you there purposely just to make my day brighter. But more often, you surprise me and find your own ways into my thoughts. There are even times when I awaken, I realize that you've been a part of my dreams.

The comfort I feel in knowing that we can disagree, we can get through the roughest of times and still know in our hearts that we can't live without each other is what makes it even more special. 'It wouldn't matter if it didn't matter...' Baby, you matter to me and I know in my heart I truly matter to you. I am secure in your love as I know you are in mine. What more could we ask for than to be truly loved as we do each other and have found the one we have both been searching for all our lives.
So, to all you out there who read this letter of love, if you've found it, hold it tight, cherish, respect, and be kind to each other. This kind of love is rare and special beyond words. For those of you haven't found it yet, don't give up and settle... they're out there and if you're lucky, someday you will know what these words I've just written mean... you'll feel them in your heart.
So, in closing, let me shout this to all..., 'I LOVE YOU, BABY, WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL!'

Attaching pictures of this so-called 'Mark'...
