Hi there,

I am a 40 years old woman from Bulgaria, Europe.
I would like to apologize for sending you this message here on your website, but really I do not know what to do in the situation I become before less than 3 weeks.
That happens when I put my account and pictures on here http://www.connectingsingles.com

A handsome man named Chris Lakers (username: sweetchris) have in a touch with me by that side and we exchange our emails. After he told me he deletes his account form http://www.connectingsingles.com because of me and we continued our communication by emails only.
I do not know, if the guy from the picture (chrislakers) is the real person who was contact me on http://www.connectingsingles.com
Or some other person is using his name and marital status.
Just I would lie to try to find out, if that person is real or is a spammer using his name and pictures from the site.
That is the only info I have from his side. There is some pictures and emails also, but I could send as a request to the correct instance:

Name: Christopher Lakers
Occupation - senior architect

Contact details by emails:
Chrislakers@aol.com
chrislakers@ymail.com

Marital status and age: 47 years old, originally from Perth, Australia, from 35 years now lives in South Austin, Texas, USA, widow (his wife died in a car accident before 5 years),
Single father. Has 5 years old son Alex.
Has only one sister - Veronika, marriage and lives in Greece with her 5 years old daughter. No life parents.

Now on a business trip for some road construction in Lagos, Nigeria (cell number is +2348058109269)


He told me he is new on a date sites, and after less than 3 weeks he told me he is fall in love with me and ask me to married him.... but he has an accounts exist in more than 14 date sites (I found that in before few days, and stupid me if I try so late to find out who is the person chatting with me)
He is always have no time for answering correctly (he mistakes with simple info regarding his life, or my life during our emails and chat on yahoo Msg), no webcam possibility at all (the excuse is that he is in Lagos, Nigeria and there is not webcams available), phone calls possibility only, if I call him (he calls me once and after that my account was double. Sure I pay for that call).
I have my correspondence by email and photos with him.
Look here:

And here:
Romance Scam - Forum:: View topic - Collins Wallace/colins_wallace4u
Now there is another guy, chrislakers, from Austin, Texas, with another picture and almost the same profile, widow, 45, works in construction and looks for...
www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5475 - 79k

I try to protect myself not become a victim to that person!

Please, if you thing you could help me in some way to find out is the person chatting with me and asking me to married him is real or not! How dangerous he could be to me?

Thank you in advance for your help and understanding!

Sincerely yours,

The individual has the same profile on various dating sites and uses the following e-mail addresses:

robertdinego0.yahoo.com
chris.lakers@yahoo.com

messages from him - looks like he sends standard messages each time

I was happy to receive your letter. It’s very nice to meet you, and I am hoping that all is well with both yourself and your family. I would be honored to correspond with you and to get to know you better. I feel that you are an attractive, intelligent, serious minded, and desirable female. am an architect, am widowed from my Chinese ex-wife, and have a son. I desire someone who will be my loyal lover, soul mate, and lifetime companion, with no secrets between us.i have a loving son and need a woman who will love me and him. I believe that fidelity (total faithfulness and loyalty) is the most important factor in a marriage and that all else depends on this. I also feel that a true meeting of the minds is crucial for the ultimate success of a relationship.

If you will permit, I would like to ask a few questions. Can you tell me something about your education, your family, your life, and your future desires? Do you enjoy cooking and what are your favorite foods and dishes you like to prepare? Do you have any full-length (head to feet), standing position photos, which you can email to me? If we are to develop a serious relationship and decide to later meet one another personally and consider marriage, we will need to get to know one another as completely and deeply as possible. Therefore please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have. I want to list some of my interests for you to see if you feel that at least 50% of them coincide with yours: bicycling, nature, sightseeing, travel, moonlight beach walks, romantic dinners for two, antiques, art, music, movies, photography, literature, exercising at the gym, and planning activities with friends. I believe that a couple must share and if necessary develop some common interests, and also have common goals. I feel that these are the kind of necessary attributes in a relationship that keep people focused on one another. There is a saying I believe, “People who play together, stay together.” One of my hobbies is collecting and restoring antique clocks. In addition, I have a great love of the outdoors, including bicycling, hiking, and exploring new places, the beach, etc. I like beautiful natural places, historic buildings, and sometimes museums and art galleries.

I am excited about the thought that we can become friends. However, I do not want us to be only friends, but possibly much more. I may not be a rich man and definitely not the most handsome guy in the world, but I have a heart filled with love to give to the “right woman.” I will be awaiting your response. Please take care.
Sincerely
Robert



how are you doing today and hope all is well with you and the rest of the family. and i am really happy for what you did for my alex and he was so happy becuasen now he is worried about you that he want you to be her mum becuase since i dont have woman with me and he always call you mum .well i must say you have all the qualities i need in a woman.I am looking to meet someone who knows what they want in life. I am looking for someone who can show me the world they come from and I want to do the same. I enjoy doing just about anything. I am a very honest happy go lucky person, so if you are a control freak or don't like to hang with women who are the life of the party skip on by me. I am looking for someone who knows the meaning of balance in all area's in life. I am looking for someone who enjoys to live and is positve and motivating. I know we all have past relationships but I would hope the person I am with has let theirs go. I hate drama and I do not like people who lie. I am intrested in someone who knows who they are inside and out and who would share their experiences in life with me. I believe money is not everything and if it controls your life I am not intrested. I do not care how much you make, what you do for a living or how you got to be where you are as long as you are down to earth, honest, passionate, able to adore the one your with and know the meaning of respect. There are many people out here looking and you can come across someone who seems to have it all together only to find out later they are a mess. I am not looking for that. I know exactly what I am looking for and I would like to meet someone who is the same, I want a woman thats family oriented to spend the rest of my life with......she must be ready to love and beloved and must be ready to share his loving family with me cos i value families so much....... I want start with a friendship before a relationship cos i want my woman as my best and loving friend..............


His story changes - one minute New York, then California. He tells you his father is wealthy - yet he can't pay for gas

Following my encounter with Chris Lakers, I received an email from another scammer with the name Martin Darrenn - Has anyone heard of him. I trawled through all the pics on a scammers website and found that it matched the photos he sent me.

His initial message from the Dating site I use:

Hi,I have to say you have got a lovely and awesome profile and It will be nice to know you better if you won't mind.You can write to me on mm_d01@yahoo.com and I'll get back to you with my pics .Hope to hear from you soonest my lady.Take care.Cheers.


This was the e-mail address he used and his message:-
mm_do1@yahoo.com

Since asking for his home tel number and the state he resides in - I have not heard anymore. I refused to give him any details of me or pictures without a contact number first.

He was on the following website - www.shaadi.com under the profile name of 'coolheartedsearching' - so ladies beware especially as the photos are from another scammer website. Interestingly enough it says in his profile California - yet his message gives another state - not sure what WA Stands for.

Can anyone also tell me the easy way of checking pictures I receive without going through pages of pictures.


Also, as I have been scammed once and did share pictures - I am worried that my pictures with my family will be used to scam innocent people - how can I check that my pictures are not being used anywhere.

Finally, since finding this site & others I have learnt alot. I only wish I had come across this alot earlier. But as they say a lesson leant is never forgotten.

If you still doubt...get rid of him.

Chris Lager, Robert Dinego, Martins Scott are the same person, same profile, story and photos.

Who's he? He works alone or a group? Why they are doing this?

Thanks for the power of love between us...innocent women.

God bless you.

I know this guy is a scammer as I was taken by him before. When I saw his profile on a matrimonial site, I decided to have some fun & give him a taste of his own medicine. The photos are the one's he sent me before.

Can anyone tell me how I can check which country the message is coming from
