The scrammer story is like the others. It started in US and then went on in England and at last ended in Nigeria because of the job. He gave himself as civil engineer. But unluckely he is also in the hospital and is robbed and needs money. This is the whole story. What so interesting for me is, aren't they able to find another story? Are they so silly to tell everyone the same story? There must be a reason to do so, but couldn't solve till now. The second point is that they collect pitcures from the victims- as i gave also- and try to use them by another victom. This must be stopped. But i really don't know how? The gentleman above is - so is my feeling- also a victim. So he has the right to know this. This is the reason why i'm searching for him. Hope that i can find him.

The chance you will find out who he really is is slim to none. It is likely a prior victim, gotten when the scammer was posing as a woman. They recycle the pictures they receive from victims. Also, they use scripts that have been develped by marketing analysts for effectiveness, which is why they all sound so similar. Also, one scammer is most often a team of 5 or 6 so when one has to use the bathroom, grab something to eat or their shift is over, another can slide in and keep talking to you. Thus, the similarities in their stories. Make no mistake, they are organized and this problem goes very deep. The FBI has confirmed that a portion (how much is anyone's guess) of their proceeds goes to terrorist organizations and at least in part, helped fund 9/11.
Even if you could find the real man behind the photos, what would you say to him? He likely has family, maybe a wife and kids, and he may not appreciate your search. I'd suggest you let it go and just work on healing and getting back to having a full, happy life. There is no jurisdiction in the states that can touch these criminals because our laws don't apply to them. Add to that, that the Nigerian/Ghanian governments also protect them because of the large volume of money that is sent to their countries through this activity and the fact that half of their police force is on the take and protects the internet cafes and you will see why this problem has gotten so large and why we don't have legal recourse.

SCAMMED BY CHRISTOPHER ROBINSON AND ANTHONY JAMES AKA ANTHONY JAMES SHADDY

I am here to let as many people know that I was a victim of a 4 month long scam. yes 4 months. That is how convincing these low life's are. Through a dating site called Singleparentmeet.com I met a Christopher Robinson. We communicated 1 e-mail through the site and than he asked me to sign on to yahoo IM, his ID is/was robinsonc57 and than eventually robinsoncj57. His story was after a week talking, his had to leave his home in Brooklyn, NY to go to Austria because his mother is very sick. After a few days I hear from him, his mother needs kindey transplant. Mind you he
DATING CHRISTOPHER ROBINSON OR ANTHONY JAMES AKA ANTHONY JAMES SHADDY from NIGERIA claims he is a widow, wife died in car accident in Missouri and he has a son named Preston (who is home schooled). He claims to have grew up in London and Missouri and was in the Army. I have many pictures of him in the service. Well after about 3 weeks he starts asking for money and stupidly I sent it to someone else on his behalf. He also gave me a NY phone number 718-425-0916 because I was not believing him. When I googled the name Christopher Robinson, I got photos from myspace and vetfriends.com that indicated him being in Brooklyn. So the story just got better and better. His dad left to his dead wife papers that left him millions of dollars in a London bank (Barclays). He had his partner in crime James Buxton pretend to be a lawyer that was helping him with getting the papers from the security company in london. Meanwhile I sent money to a Nancy Buxton in Midvale, Utah and a Jennifer Jayne in NY. I am sure they were all in on the scam. Well over $130K later, I realize that this whole 4 month realtionship was a lie, he was actually a Anthony James or Anthony James Shaddy FROM NIGERIA. The real Christopher Robinson lives in Indiana and is in the Army National Guards. I spoke with him on the phone but have a feeling he benefited from this. I told him where to go to get his profile off the web and they are still out there. To whomever reads this - please do not make the same mistake as me. I am although a survivor. Please stay away from these names Christopher Robinson, Anthony James, Anthony James Shaddy, Nancy Buxton, Jennifer Jayne, James Dickson, Onah Kinglsey Ikenna. They are all part of a scam. I have filled out both police report and have gone to the FBI.
