Thanks for the add. I met John Williams at Singlesnet.com a week ago or so.
I trapped him to write me an email in order to find out his IP address. At first, he told me that he lives in downtown San Francisco and later he claimed that he was visiting South Africa. He introduced himself as half British and American and a business man.
I saw the red flags from the beginning. He gave me his phone number so I called him a few times. He never answered the phone and came up with lame excuses such as, I am having flu, sore throat, I saw you were calling me, but I couldn't answered the phone, he lost his cell phone....so on..
As many educated women, I spotted the scam right at the beginning. My advice to the innocents, please do search about the person, get track down their IP address and phone number. Do not con to their mind game. They are very sweet talker, professional, they are after your money.
Finally, I called singlesnet.com and reported him as a scam, love fraud.
Thank you very much for having my voice to be heard. Hoping that this information would be helpful for the innocent ones.

I bet a john williams from cerritos los angels california claims to work as a arts dealer who buys and sells arts. Supposely has a sick mother in abeokuta nigeria ogun suppose is gay and had a partner who died three years ago in a car crash in romania. Both parents dead due to a car accident when he was just two years ago. Scammed me out of four thousand dollars which now i am probally going to have to file bankruptcy and lose everything i have. He supposely has the helpful uncle joseph balogun of abeokuta ogun nigeria. who runs to western union. He got defensive and demanded i called my credit card company to renew my cards so we can use it to travel lol yeah right. He has scammed woman out of money. His story he told me is pretty much the same other than its a male partner who died not a wife. He supposely lives in a beautiful house in cerritos ca and went to cerritos college lol. Did not know what macaroni and cheese is i was in shocked because i think most americans know what that is. I am feeling pretty down and dumb that i thought wow i met someone and i wont have to file bankruptcy or lose my houses yeah right. The only one i trust now is my mother and my dog and cats.

I just want you to be aware. I met John R. William on Match.Com. He said he lived in Wayne, Pa and built houses for a living. His mother and father were killed. He was divorced and his wife moved to France. He told me he had his house boarded up and had two vehicles. He said that they would need worked on when he got home. I asked about his yard, knowing that in most areas you get fined if your grass is over so many inches tall. I feel like a fool. I told him I would help him fix up the yard when he got home.
He told me he was Greek and liked Greek food. When I went to put him as a Favorite on Match his profile was gone. After calling Match tonight, I found out that men like John(??) wink at women or will email a lot of woman.
Another thing that was a red flag was when he asked what airport I was close too. I also asked who took the pictures of him. He told me he got someone to take them when he was boarding the plane. Come to think now, as you can see, he is standing in a kitchen.
Beware women, he looks up where you live and gets details. He asks where you live and gets your numbers too.
It is funny but while talking to him, I said I think I talked to you about a year ago. He never responded to that. I remember because he wrote poems like many of th emails he sent this time.
Yesterday, he told me that he booked his flight home from Nigeria because he finished the job there. But he did not have enough money and wanted me to wire him $1,200. He claimed he was crying because he wanted to come home and be my husband. While trying to get me to call my job and have the money fronted to me to help pay for his trip and also asking if I could get money from a credit card or do anything because he wanted to come home and be with me.
Today when he was so desperate to get home. Or so I thought, he asked what my bank account number was so he could have his bank transfer money into my account. He said he was in a third world country. That they paid him by check but only gave him some money in cash for a plane ticket. Then he asked for my social security number. I had my identity stolen awhile back. That is what really raised a RED FLAG.
WOMAN BEWARE, when a man asks you for your social security number they are after more then your love, body, etc.
I have attached several emails that he sent me over the month that we chatted. He also told me he worked 6 days a week and had Sundays off. It makes me sick that I talked to this jerk for a month or more. My mission is to catch this man. It sounds like many of us were also scammed by him.
Here is the number he gave me to call him in Nigeria: 0112347065352785
He used the following email addresses: email@example.com. He also used firstname.lastname@example.org. along with the name Dennis Wolf. He also told me his birthday was August 10, 1959. He wanted me to get on yahoo instant messegner. I didn't, but he did get on aim as giftromance.
Today when I got home her is the email he sent me:

1. Dear Sunshine,
I have never in my life met someone more beautiful, enjoyable, loving, and comforting as you. Since the very first day that you smiled at me I knew there was something very special about you. I had no idea then that I would fall in love, but now that I have, I am so grateful. I am grateful for us to have wandered into one another's world so softly and unexpectedly. Nature took its course on our hearts and joined them in a way never imaginable.
I want you to know, that from the very depths of my heart, I love you. And I love everything that creates you, from your hair - that I wish I could play in more often... to your forehead - that I wish I could kiss while you sleep; from your eyes - that sparkle when you smile (just for me)... to your nose - that I wish I could rub my nose against; from your lips - that I just know were made perfectly to fit against mine... to your chin - that I would love to place my finger under to pull you close for a kiss; down your neck and to your heart - that in my own, I claim as mine, and down past every inch of every part of your existence.
I wish more than anything that you and I could grow together, love together, learn together, and laugh together, forever. I sincerely feel that between the two of us, we have the kind of love that some people never get a chance to experience. I promise to love you as much as I can, as best as I can, and for as long as I can. And no matter what, it's very important to me for you to know that you are an irreplaceable spirit that will always be a part of me.
Love you always.
My darling, sweet Angel... where do I begin? I've written you a couples of these letters that you have hidden in a drawer somewhere. I'm sure this will make a great addition....
As always, I want to start by saying thank you. I tell you a million times a day, each day, that I love you and that you mean the world to me. Although you reciprocate these feelings, I'm sure you have no inkling on the magnitude of exactly what they mean to me.
You walked into my life a stranger a meref ew weeks ago and my life hasn't been the same since. You are TRULY my gift from a higher power. LOVE is such a minuscule word for what we share. You are SO amazing. You appeared when I was at such a low point in my existence. A time when I thought that the physical and emotional pain brought on by another would never end and would wear away at every fiber of my being until it consumed me and I was no more. During the moments I tried to turn away for fear of the unknown, you planted your heels and looked deep in my soul and stayed. You compromised your life and your goals to help me survive... and I am eternally indebted to you. Without you... I would not be.
You have become a beacon to me. Whenever I feel as though I've drifted too far into the disparity that clouds my life, I can look up to find you guiding me to safety. I stay here not because this place is home... but because YOU are home.
After all that's happened to me in the past , I swore to God, and the moon, and to you that I would never settle again and that I would never give my heart and my life completely to another. With great content and zero disparity... I take it back.
Most people will spend their entire lives searching for a perfection that almost never exists. Most people will spend their days looking at each person they encountered with question as to whether or not they have found a reason, a season or a lifetime. With you, angry love *wink*, I have found an eternity. You... this... here is where I am meant to be. You are what my entire life has led up to. You are my very best friend, my lover, my protector, my teacher and my absolute soul mate.
I give my life to you: mind, body and soul. I will you to hold me for the rest of my life as you do each and every day and night.
I belong to you now....
Eternally in John
It is scary to think that if a man can talk to a woman, how many creeps are picking up children!
I hope this helps someone else not get scammed!!!!!!!!!! What is this world coming too! Are all the good men taken ?
