is someone received this photo from a dating site MuslimMarriage?, said he is german, and he is an angineer in roads and bridge in nigeria.
but i think she is a woman from nigeria, because the voice don't match with the man photo, i really fell in love with the guy on this picture and his country (Germany), and i'm sure he is not the real scammer, poor man!, i'm sure he is a victim and i really feel sorry for him and for me, because myself i send photos and now i hope the scammer will not use them to scamm another men.

Sorry for my late reply. How are you today? I am only serious for a relationship that will lead to marriage but I just believe the best way to succeed is taking it slow and steady...(Smiling)
I love giving and getting affection/attention, I am simple, hardworking, supportive, experienced and down to earth. My ideal woman must have a good heart, supportive, lovely, confident of herself, down to earth and religious.
Can you share with me about your past relationship? What is your ideal man, I need to know If I fit the criteria....Lol
Have a lovely day.

He asks these kinds of questions:

I would really love to know more and more about you, you are a very beautiful woman and there are so many possibilities that we could get to start some thing beautiful together.

Tell me dear, What kind of man do you wish to have a relationship with?
What kind of relationship are you actually interested in?
How do you know if you want a relationship with someone?
What kind things do you cherish in a man?
What kind of things do you also dread in a man?
What are the little things that makes you smile?
What kind of music do you love?
What is your favorite colour?
What do you enjoy doing with your free time?

Your new friend,

I never even got to a point where he was asking money thanks to this site but here is more of what he wrote to me:

Thanks for telling more about you. S...Means Samuel. I have gone through the website, It is lovely, can you explain it more to me? I have an Asian (Japanese) and European (Irish) family background. It's been so long I communicated with my Asian relations.

I am originally from Ireland. Acquired masters and bachelors of science in Urban & Regional Planning/Architecture at the University College Cork, Ireland. I have been to so many country due to the position of my job. I plan to change a new dimension of business that will keep me close to the family I plan to build and settle down soon after the project I am working in conjunction and association with Dolphine Concept LTD. I am in Pennsylvania, United States right now on a contract bid and have just few days to stay here, I have plans of going down to China after the weekend. I am a Project Manager, I have a contruction firm whose services are based on amendments and reconstruction of houses, roads and bridges. I do seek/go for a contract bidding, If the contract is being awarded to me, I do set up a crew to execute the project. I start and conclude a project with my own money and after a job well done, I would be paid.

I was born 1964, I would turn 45 years by 26th of December. Dad is Irish, Mum is Japanese. My Mum died when I was 6 years old, Dad remarried few years later, Growing up as a kid wasn't easy at all, I past through hard times to stand on my fit at this time, I got married 10 years ago and lost my wife 3 years later, It has not been easy with me, I need love now and I believe true love heals a lot. I love giving and getting attention / affection..

I'm an easy going kind of man. I enjoy going out for dinner or dancing as well as a quite evening at home in front of a fire with a bottle of wine.. I love to travel. I enjoy cooking, gardening, taking long walks or better still go see a movie, but I have not done that for a long time since there is no one to go see the movie with. I'm a hopeless romantic but have not been lucky enough to meet someone who I would say is my soul mate, I guess I have not been looking hard enough. I don't have any drama in my life and I equally expect the same, what you see is what you get...I'm a loving, caring, supportive man. Passionate, driven and ambitious. Stable career path. Goal oriented, but at the same time very spontaneous. Like to have a loose plan - not a rigid schedule when it comes to.........

To let you know what I am looking for in a woman, I am not asking for too much but just the same normal thing which every normal guy would ask for ... the proverbial 'entire package'- beauty, brains, pleasant disposition, morals, compassionate heart and ethics, a woman who has a great deal going for herself, yet carries herself as if she is oblivious to that fact. I wish to find that special woman who I am going to spend the rest of my life with someone who would be my best friend and soul mate. Someone who understands what life, relationship and commitment really means.. Someone who understands that every good relationship takes a lot of work from both partners this is because love is not just about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. I wish to find someone who is easy going, honest, open minded.

What matters most to me is the inside of a woman, her heart!
Please tell me little more about you and send me some photos, Okay?

S...Means Samuel is no other than Jeff Samuel. I can confirm from his writing. He wrote the same story to me. He used address with me. He conned more than $42K from me. He is a Nigerian. Total Nigerian accent. I got confirmation from Irish postal department that he gave fake address. He has good writing skills.
I am confirming that it is Jeff Samuel. He gave me the same address. He told me the same story. In my story his mum was from Jordan. His pictures were different but same writing and same words. I can post his letters.
He is a con man from Nigeria. Someone should catch him. - AA from Philadelphia.

He took money from me on different names. Westen Union told me he is a Nigerian con man. So did the police. Here is his writing style:


It's done, the water, sun and moon wants us to meet.

Everything went successful, I saw my own documents and passport with my eyes today, It has been released to me. I have to leave this country immediately, Gabe did a great job for me, he has handed my documents / properties over to the Irish Embassy because of all I have gone through.


I have been busy all through the day, I have backups and have already reported Alex and Sunday to the Nigerian Government / Authorities, but they gave me a duration to get both of them arrested and refund us with a compensation from the Government, I almost cried all day.....Tears of joy I must say.....

The Irish Embassy said I can not leave to PA directly, I must go through Ireland because of most of my papers needs to be re-activated. I promise to be in PA 1 week after my arrival to Ireland, Okay? Or can you come over with Sidd first? I will pay the bills, both the flight and other arrangements.

As for my flight ticket, they need me to provide the receipt of the payment I made to Brian for refund because he is not on sit right now, can you find the transfer slip?

My heart is filled with joy, I feel a new breath and so so so so so so so so so so so relieved, I AM HAPPY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I don't want Gabe to leave before me, he has plans to do back to London the next 78hours, as for your sister's Money, don't be afraid, You will get it by next week once I leave, I promise. Heaven and earth bears me witness, I LOVE YOU AND TRULY DO.

Gabe extends his regards,
I met with both Onyi and her Mother, they were really interested to know our relationship but my response to them was 'You guys really frustrated her'

What do you think If I make arrangement for their family to change environment, I mean leaving Nigeria for good, this country is evil, I have a story.

I was shouting on the streets of Owerri, It is the best and most memorable day of my life, mark this day, tell Master that I am grateful, I am free at last, this is his work, I trust and believe in him.


LOVE TRULY HEALS, DON'T YOU THINK HAPPINESS / LOVE WILL HEAL US? I AM BACK TO A MAN, This hopeless Nigerians made me lost respect and prestige as a man but God has his way of doing things and have done it for us at last.

I don't want to stop writing but I have to.
It has no meaning now, what matters is meeting each other, I want to feel your touch

I will love you through my lifetime.
Hugs and kisses!

If you search, Jeff's old email address, you will find him in other web sites with same profile. He wrote the same things in his profile in all the sites. Some sites have banned him after I reported him.
Be very careful! He is a liar but talks very sweet.

Oh I have thank you so much girls.
I don't think I would have given him money (because I don't have alot) but you spared me so much anguish and potential wasted time.

I will check in from time to time.


Keeping it real.

Hello Please for Your Sake stop all contact with the scammer now.

You know He's a scammer what are You doing ?

You need to block and stop all forms of communication completely.

If You allow any form of contact to continue it will keep You hooked
up forever.

A scammer looks at a single connection as permission from You to
keep scamming You.

Many Woman fall for this and its just plain sick.

You will never be free from this Parasite ever unless You stop
everything now and no more Exceptions.

You are playing with fire like a small child.

You will end up getting burned and it will be no ones fault but Your own.

The only thing the scammer thinks of You now is what a Mugu You are.
[ Mugu Gullible White Fool ]

Please break off all contact even if You have to get a new phone number
or even a new e mail address.

Never allow one more contact no matter what the reason.

Merry Christmas I Hope You stop this Foolishness now.

Kind Regards Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'// <><

Agreed Agent 86 Maxwell Smart.

What are you trying to accomplish from this 'anonymous from United States?'
This person obviously is wasting your time
and no good can come of continual contact.

The end point is wasted time and money.
Life is short and this person is pathetic.
They only want money, not you.
You are nothing to them but a bank.

I know you want to justify your feelings but it is all fiction.
What you feel or think is based on fiction.
Let it go.
You can not capture this person,
if anything you should tell your tale to the FBI or CIA and let them find him and deal with him.

You do not have the authority nor skills to capture this fellow.
Leave it to the experts, that would be the only way to resolve this.

Thank You for Your remarks Hopefully this victim will stop all contact.

I would like to point out several reality checks to You though.

To begin with the FBI or CIA is completely useless in these scamming cases.

They routinely laugh at victims who try to make reports to them.

Please read the reports here on the site that tell of that happening
many times.

Our Government has no Authority to do anything at all in any other Country.
Nearly all scams come from Over Seas and relatively few originate
in the US.

Complaints may be made to the Embassy's of Foreign Countries.
But one must be careful if they attempt to contact Governments
such as Nigeria or Ghana as corruption in their Governments
can potentially lead to being scammed by those who claim they
will help the victim regain their losses.

Many Victims lose more money on top of the original loss by a
fake Agency's claiming they can help.

Never under any circumstance give money to anyone who claims they
will help You get Your money back.

Yes these are scams on scams and they also are reported on this site.

It is so bad now that the chance of ever getting a penny back or the
scammer ever being busted is nearly impossible.

I am not trying to say it hopeless and allowing the thieves to get
away with their crimes.

I am however Warning You that utmost care must be taken if anyone
tries to take any kind of action at all.

The scammers know their victims are trying to get their money back.
They have created new scams to get even more money.

I am sorry but this is the reality now.

Please be careful no matter what You do.

Thank you everyone for this post which helped me get rid of him quickly. Don't you think he must have a very sick heart&mind&soul when you read his e-mails. I really pity this scammer because he sounds very sick. Look at what he writes
I really don't know how to describe myself more and more to you aside the little at first, but believe me I have a good heart. I am a man of my words, I rarely make promises but I try to keep them when I make them. I am very affectionate and caring, I have a good sense of humor (it keeps the wrinkles away). I am very beautiful on the inside, I have a lot of love to offer to the right woman but the last thing I want is to have my heart broken.
A relationship means a lot to me, love to me is happiness giving back and forth. Love is like a river, never ending as it flows, but gets greater with time. A relationship is like every other good thing in life attracts responsibility, some both parties should bring out their time to make it work, it takes you by surprise at first, but keeps you warm for a long time.
The fact that this person can write these kinds of things when stealing the most important things (emotions) of women, along with their money assures me he is a very sick being on this earth. Reptilians are more honorable than him.
