This guy says he is 38 on okcupid and 33 on webdate.

I exchanged a few emails and IM's after meeting him on OKcupid. He is supposedly Irish, living in the U.S. but travels to France, Italy & Africa for business. He says he is a gemstone buyer. His command of English is not good, he gets very testy if you ask personal questions, and he was quick to want to form a romantic bond without wanting to meet...since he is out of the country so much. I decided to ignore him and he sent me an IM with a virus attached. I didn't think much about him being a scammer until recently and decided to do a little research. I had unfortunately deleted his emails so I can't track his IP address. I found the second profile at webdate with conflicting information. I feel sure he is a scammer of some sort.

Both accounts on the dating sites are stmac102030.

I had gotten a message on OKC a few days ago from 'Steve'...I've gotten messages from scammers before, and the language in his profile and message was very similar.

I decided to do a search for him online, and this was one of the first things that came up.

I don't know for certain that he is a scammer...but I'm inclined to think that I may have been right...

I too chatted with this guy, there was something very fishy about him. He had sent me a cheque that he wanted me to cash and deposit the cash into an account for him .. but little did he know that i wasnt born yesterday. Told me that he was living in Europe somewhere but when the cheque arrived it was supposidly from a college in my country but it was post marked from New York.. After i gave the police the cheque he inquired about it so I told him what i did and havent heard from him since .. woooottttt

I tracked his IP address. He is from Nigeria. Just some confirmation that he isn't real, although we all already know this.

Thank you to whomever left the links for tracking the IP address.
