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:
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.

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!
He used the old trick of Alex being in hospital with a broken leg with me and needing to pay the hospital bills. He started by saying that Alex was having a Birthday Party and the next thing I know, the 'kid' has had an accident and he could not pay the hospital bills or even buy food.
anonymous from United States
You had asked how to check an IP address. First, open up the email in question. Then pull the full headers. In Yahoo, you do it by clicking on headers or standard headers. then clicking on full headers. Next, copy and paste the entire thing to this website:
Then click on check headers. If it comes up anywhere other than where he said he was when the email was written, he is lying to you.
I am posting the following as I was scammed by this individual and I have now received the following e-mail from another scammer.
This to acknowledge you that your e-mail address was found among the list of foreigner that have been scammed by USA Fraudsters. It might interest you to know that we have signed an agreement with the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT during our first meeting this year with our PRESIDENT Commander In-Chief Federal Republic of america, THE NEW PRESIDENT OF US and the FBI to fight against this and to return all contract funds that has been stolen and people who has been scammed too.A total sum of ($3.5million) united state Dollars in cash has been set aside for compensation which will be delivered to your door step by an accredited diplomatic courier.

Please I demand an urgent response prior to this matter and to work with me to enable track those Miscreants and send their information to the FBI to carry out actions in the US immediately because those Miscreants haven some agent all over the country and we are now working with the internet operation such as YAHOOMAIL, HOTMAIL, AOL, the US police and also the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) so that the scam can be eradicated in this country.
Be awrae that you will be responsible for shipping fee, that cannot be deducted from the fund because there is a bond holding the consignment that stated that only the sole beneficiary of the fund is Permitted to open it after the foreign payment department has sealed it. The shipping fee is only 300pounds.
Also note that the federal high Court here will alert the united state bureau and also your state police immediately your shipment leave the shore of UK so as to avoid any restriction and problem when the fund get to its port of destination.

Came across this scammer again on Shaadi.com - Profile id 'cutebarryj'
This scammer is on Shaadi.com again with the Profile ID: Sweetmartin4u
Is there anyway I can check whether a scammer has written the same information about himself on other sites. I've received interests on a dating site from 2 individuals, but the description about themselves is very 'flowery'. I thought someone mentioned a site before...
