LOL, Oh my goodness, LOL, I cannot believe it. The following from the Alan Armstrong post is almost an exact quote from an email Jamie Grant sent to me early July 2009.

[quote]It's 4.00am of the day and I was thinking about you, as usual. I want you to know how much I sincerely love the countless hours we spend talking. It means so much to me. It truly seems like I've known you forever and I honestly can't imagine life without you now. There will be no looking back, no second thoughts and no regrets. I love you and only you ... and that love will only grow stronger. Sometimes life hits you with unexpected things that take you totally by surprise. All I can say is you're the best surprise life has given me and your capacity for love, caring, and understanding never ceases to amaze me. I've truly been blessed by finding you and I'll never let you go.[/Quote]

Jamie Grant[/Quote]

Jamie claims that: he was widowed 4 years ago when his wife died in a car accident, he has two kids (Janie & Steve) both at Oxford University, UK, and that he holds a BS, MS, & Ph.D. all in math. Claims that he is self-employed as a construction project manager ($250,000+/yr). Says his father was German, mother was Spanish. Calls his accepnt 'a heavy German accept' but it sounds French to me. He sometimes speaks playfully high voiced with heavy accent, but when off-guard speaks in a slower deeper tone with slight accent.

He claims he has not dated in the 4 years since his wife died (Spring 2005) in a car accident when she was delivering a big check to the orphanage in New Mexico.

He told me not to speak to any other men, to close down my MySpace page, and he even asked me for my MySpace login and password so his daughter Janie could add some things. LOL, what a guy, eh?

Claims to live in Norfolk, VA and also has a home in Plano, TX.

He 'fell in love' with me within first week, 5 days after I replied to his message he said he had to go to Denmark to put a bid on a job. Then the games began.

First he asked me for, and unfortunately for me, got me to WU $100 to an orphanage. When i asked for the 501(c)(3) nonprofit info, he got upset and said it was new. I am a strong Christian and thought, oh, I can give $100 to the kids. It's God's money, I don't need the tax deduction. Stupid me.

This man asked me, but did not get answers to: (1) when I bought my home and how much I paid for it, (2) my mother's maiden name; (3) last 4 digits of my SS#, (4) for one of my credit card numbers.

He said one of his clients didn't want to pay him but he would pay me. So he wanted me to give him the above information so the client could put the money into my credit card account then I would transfer it to him. HA! I asked him if I had I AM AN IDIOT stamped on my head. LOL He got very upset.

Then, he asked me for $1,200 to get the bid for the construction job in Denmark. Then he said he needed $1,700 for an airline ticket home. He said he's always paid cash and thought they'd give him $3.5 mil in cash rather than check. LOL, yeah, right. Then he said that he was picked up by police at Copenhagen airport because he skipped out on some of the hotel bill. But, he wan't jailed, lol. Rather the 'manager' was making him stay there (for 3 weeks so far) until he could come up with money to pay for the room. LOL, oh, yeah, right. The manager lets him stay free of charge for 3 weeks until he pays the $1200 he owes for one week's stay? LOL

So, up to yesterday a.m. he has been trying to get $1500 out of me so he can pay the manager $1200 for the first week and laptop rental Oh, yes, he claimed that he pawned his laptop and an Italian suit for money so he now has to rent the laptop. He asked me to pawn my personal and household goods up to $1200 when I told him I didn't have the cash to send him. LOL, then he asked if I would fly to Virginia and pawn items from his house. HA, yeah, right. He was going to send me to rob someone's house? LOL

BEWARE, he even set up fake YM address claiming to be his dauther Janie Grant at Oxford UK who only seemed to IM me when Jamie and I were chatting and she would always say 'please don't hurt my dad' right before he asked me for money. This guy tries to cover his bases, lol. But, there are always holes in the story, and I hammered him with questions all the time. LOL, I keep laughing today about how hard this guy had to work trying to scam me.

He sent me flowers and a teddy bear the Thursday before 4th of July holiday. Then, called me that night to say, 'I showed you I love you today with the flowers. Now, you show me you love me and send me the money I need.' NOT!

LOL, but I work for a huge international law firm and the idiot knew it. I played along and finally, yesterday morning I told him I'd try to send him the money and asked where to WU the cash. He gave me This information: Olawale John, 3 Adeyemi Street, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria 23401 'What is money for: Bills'

Then, he made the mistake of texting me, for the first time I might add, from the JamieCool@a.smsaa.com address. I Googled that and bingo! It let me here to this dating scam site.

I emailed and texted him that he was going down and should I notify Homeland Security about this. THIS GUY DOESN'T FALL DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT, lol. He bombarded me with emails but didn't realize he was sending them to my law firm email. lol, which are saved FOREVER. When I told him 'I am at work and very busy' he then said, 'oh, okay honey, do good at work' and stopped. Until I got home. He bombarded my IM with threatening, 'You'll regret sending me away' and called me 20 times on my pda between 12:45 a.m. and 3:45 a.m. I had the sense to turn off my pda before going to bed.

I could go on and on. He endless IMs, emails and phone calls. Sometimes giving me zero or 2-3 hours sleep night after night. But, just be warned. This guy is a PEST and he has no problems using Jesus' name to try and get his money. Sending me Scripture every morning, obviously copied off the internet.

LADIES BEWARE. This guy talks a good talk in the name of Jesus and does seem to know his Bible.

I am going to notify MySpace and see if I can get him off of there.

At the very least, I hope this info helps someone out there. This is CURRENT. This guy contacted me June 7 and I got a Bible Scripture from him when I got to work today. After that, it has been quiet. But, it's been one heck of a wild and crazy month!

UPDATE: As of yesteday, 07.18.2009, 'Jamie Grant' was still trying to get me to send him $1,500 to pay the hotel manager for the 1 week stay. While 'Jamie' was IMing me at 11 p.m. Denmark time, he said the hotel manager came into the room and wanted to talk to me. So, suddently the fonts changed and someone, probably 'Jamie', claiming to be the hotel manager was asking if I was his wife, said he was going to have 'Jamie' jailed if he didn't get his money, and claimed he was the manager of 'Royal Solad Hotel' in Copenhagen. LOL, I have researched well and there is no Royal Solad Hotel anywhere in the world.

'Jamie' still claims is undying love for me, promises to marry me whenever he can return to the U.S. yadda yadda yadda. Even told me to check into wedding arrangements, etc. I see that he goes to his MySpace page every day or every other day and he has added a dating application to the page so I know he is victimizing other women. LOL, all this while claiming his undying love for me, his faithfulness, and tells me his son in the UK added that App to his MySpace page. LOL.

I told him that researching his asmsaa.com email doman led me to a scammer website and that I found posts with the EXACT 'love letter' emails that he has sent to me. I told him of all the women that received flowers and teddy bears. That were asked to give to orphanages. That were asked to give money to businessmen stranded in foreign countries. Of all the Nigerian scammers and that he asked me to send this last money to someone in Nigeria. His explanation to all of this: Someone hacked his computer. He said he had written a book on Christian relationships, full of love letters and personal experiences with his late wife, and it was all stolen when he got hacked. Yeah, right.

So, ladies, Jamie's current story/MO is: He traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark to put a bid in on a construction job. He got the bid but had to pay $14,500 to get the bid. He only had $9,000 because he just paid tuition to Oxford University UK for his kids' education and duplex. He said he got all but $1,200 and asked me to WU that to him. He finally got all the money for the bid. Then, he called to tell me that the company paid him the $3.7 million in a check and he is always paid in cash! So, he had no money to get an airline ticket back to the U.S. He needed $1,700 for the airline ticket and asked me for that. Okay, then he gets the $1,700 for the airline ticket and called me saying he was at the airport when the police came and took him back to the hotel because he did not have the money to pay the hotel so he skipped out on it. He was not arrested by the police but that the manager would hold him in house arrest at the hotel, free of charge, until he could pay for that one week stay.

So, for the last 4 weeks he has been asking me for $1,500 to pay for that. All the while, telling me that his kids sent him $2,000 and that he got $500 for pawning his laptop and Italian suit. You do the math.

If you are ever asked to send money to these women you KNOW it is a scam:

Orphanage Money was WU'd to:
ELIZABETH COARI
Mexico
Missouri

Bid money and airline ticket money was supposed to go WU to:
LINDA STOLTENBERG
Milaukee, Wisconsin

I also wanted to add that this man INSISTS on referring to me as his wife. I always correct that.

Even when I tell him I want nothing more to do with him, he IM's me or calls me a few days later. I will no longer respond to IMs or answser the tons of calls.

So, I hope this is my final update. But, I wanted to post all that I could to help anyone identify this scammer if they are ever approached by him. I know he must change his name but I have a feeling his MO is always pretty much the same.

UPDATE ON 07.27.2009 - Jamie and I are communication has resumed, somewhat.

Jamie continues to insist that he IS absolutely who he claims to be, that he IS the man in the photograph (it's not a fake photo), that his story is true, that HE TRULY LOVES ME FOREVER, and wants to prove to me that he is not a scammer and to be with me always.

As a Christian woman, never ever wanting to wrongly accuse anyone, I am willing to give Jamie the chance he is asking for, to prove to me that he IS Jamie Grant and deeply in love with me forever. So, I will give Jamie Grant the opportunity to provide evidence to me, beyond all doubt, that he IS the man he claims to be and that he truly loves me and wants to be with me, as he says, 'forever, to the end.'

Therefore, if Jamie Grant, proves to me, without a doubt, that he is not scamming me, the he is for real, that his homes/children/business, etc. exist and are legitimate, that he absolutely loves me now and forever, I will retract my allegations and make known to all that I was mistaken, that Jamie is real, and truly loves me with all his heart.

However, if proof is not forthcoming, I will be back to confirm my fears were justified and my allegations will stand as they are.

I have no way of knowing if, You will see this any time soon ?
You are being made a complete fool.
You are being scammed and, Your excuse that, Your a Christian
that gives a second chance has just caused, You to be a victim.
I am a Christian man and, My Bible does not say anywhere in it
where, I am to be robbed and made a fool for no one.
This is so obvious that its a scam for many reasons.
You may not see this until way to late for, You now.
Several major mistakes, You made are now going to cost, You
emotionally and financially.

# 1 Never tell any scammer or suspected scammer a single word
about why, You think they are a scammer.
Never mention this site. NEVER !!!!!!!!!!!
All, You accomplish by telling a scammer that, You suspect them
is the position, Your in now. Still being scammed.
They lie to, You from the very beginning then, You tell them
they have been lying. Do, You really think they start telling, You
the truth then ? That is nothing but absolute foolishness on, Your
part. They have a lie for everything. Your only way out is to cut the
scammer completely off and never allow any contact for any reason.
You allowed, Yourself to be victimized again because, You foolishly
allowed it.

# 2 There are no White or Black, Men or Woman in Nigeria to work or
any other reason they can say that are not scammers. NONE !!!!!!
There are 100% Scammers on line from Nigeria, Ghana, Dakar, Senegal,
Refugee Camp, Gold Coast, Ivory Coast, All of West Africa.
There are no exceptions for anyone no matter what story they have.

# 3 Your scammer used the very same words as other scams done
to other woman posted on this site. All, You had to do was read
the other stories here and, You would have learned on, Your own
that, Your being scammed.

# 4 Never tell a scammer about this site.
Never post, Your e mail address on this site.

# 5 The pictures, You posted are stolen and, Your scammer
is a Black man in a Internet Cafe in Nigeria.

You said, You work for a law firm and that should mean,
You are no dummy. But, Your actions are of a fool.
In Nigeria they call, You Mugu [ Big Fool ]
There are thousands of scammers scamming people just like, You
every day. You say, Your a Christian then start being a Wise Steward
over What God has Blessed, You with.
You should have known on, Your own this was a scammer the instant
You were contacted. You need to get off the Internet until, You
learn how to spot a scammer on, Your own.
Right now, You are a perfect victim.
No one that contacts, You on line from West Africa at all can be
trusted.
Why would, You allow Yourself to believe a total stranger, You have
never met.
Never send money to anyone in, Your life time to someone, You
do not know. Someone on line even if, You know them for years
are not someone, You know.
If, You do not end this right now once and for all no excuses
because, You have no back bone that God gave, You then, You
deserve the out come. God did not ask, You to be a door mat.
This scammer will use God Himself to scam, You and tell, You
any lie to manipulate, Your feelings.
He doesn't Love, You at all. You are being deceived by smooth
talk.
You need to choose between the lies, Your being told by the Scammer
and what, I'm telling, You.
I have nothing to gain in this by saying anything to, You.
You on the other hand by what, I read are going to be hurt very
badly and may end up losing everything to a thief who doesn't
care what happens to, You if, You live or die.
They are that cold and heartless and, You will never be free from
being scammed until, You stop it once and for all.
If, You allow any kind of contact at all the scammer will continue
to lie to, You and the scam will never end.
This liar is not who, He says, He is at all there was no dead wife
or children, He is not in Nigeria because of work.
Every detail, You have been told is a lie not one single word
is true.
Well, I have tried to warn, You but it comes down to, You now.
Keep playing the fool and go ahead and let, Him send, You fake
documents there are plenty of those available to the scammer.
If, You hang on to this scammer until, you have positive proof,
You may never escape being scammed.
Scammers use many fake names, they have many stolen photo's.
They have many e mail addresses.
Once, You end a scam, You must be ready to be scammed by the
very same scammer. He already has, Your information and even
if, You block, Him no problem for, Him to just use another one of, His
e mail addresses or another phone number.
You will find scammers never give up ever.
They will tell, You any lie to keep, You.
So the more, You talk to, Him the more, you will be trapped.
You are being scammed and that is a fact. Stop this insanity now.

Thanks SO much, Agent 86, Maxwell Smart!

I take your words to heart, and will stop all communication for good. :) I am stopping the insanity NOW! :)

You are right, I am NO dummy and, I am a Christian, an active, believing, born again, spirit-filled woman. And, you are right, that does not mean I have to be cheated, walked on, scammed, etc.

I have read through many many other posts here now and realize that it is the same story over and over. As I look at it, there is no reason in the world why anyone would ever ask me for the personal information he asked me for in the last 6 weeks.

You are correct, they have an answer for everything. But, I still have control of me and my life :) Praise God. And, it ends now.

So, once again, thanks for your honesty, Agent 86. I AM FREE! :)

Be blessed!

Thank You for, Your quick response.
I am very Thankful, You are going to be OK now.
I am also Glad, You looked at the other reports here.
These scammers hurt many very good people and are not
remorseful for their actions even the few that have been
caught. Many use Christianity as part of their scams.
That is how, I got scammed. I was listed on Christianmingle.
I never dreamed anyone could be capable of using the Bible
and being able to fool me.
As Christians we are to respect and trust one another.
So, I was taken completely off guard.
I then tried to warn others on the site but they didn't believe me.
To bad as others from the site have ended up being scammed.
I stopped all dating sites and have decided to wait on the Lord
and who if anyone, He brings into my life.
Please be safe from now on and if, You ever need help just ask.
God Bless, You Always

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

I have to tell you that I believe I have been communicating with the same man - using a different name - exact same verbage - same roses and teddy bears. Same promising me that he is who he says he is and that he would never lie to me. I would break it off with him and then he would contact me again. I however, was foolish enough to send money to him for his shipment of equipment. I know just how you feel about giving him another chance - I have 3 times. I just talked to him Sunday. I know he must read these posts, so I won't say anything more. I really fell hard for this guy. I'm a widow and hadn't tried to date for years. Obviously - I should give up dating sites. We had many conversations about losing our spouses and the pain. Again this guy quotes scriptures etc. So I do believe this is the same man. I have a different picture of a different man - but it is exactly the same.

I'm sorry he hurt you and I'm really sorry he hurt me too. Thank you for posting this - it confirms in my mind that not communicating with him anymore is absolutely the right decision.

If you would like more info from me - I will check this site. Good luck to you!

I know this has to have been a very hard ordeal for, You.
Please consider posting, Your story here for others to see.
You see, Your not the only one who has remained trapped by,
Your scammer there are other, Woman still trapped that need to see,
Your story.
It happens more times than, I can count.
What is rare is someone like, You coming forward with how the
scammer kept, You for so long.
Men also remain trapped by their scammer but with men the
root cause is pride and the inability to admit even to themselves
that anyone could deceive them so well.
Woman tend to remain hooked up to their scammers for
completely different motivations.
I try to warn every woman about how the scammer will not stop
until there is a clean break with no further contact allowed at all.
Your case highlights that very point and why it is so important
to break all contact and never allowing the scammer another chance.
Your case also draws attention to the fact that the very same scammer
while saying the very same things to different victims.
Use different fake names and use different stolen photo's.
This is a big problem for people who do not believe the truth unless
they see the exact name or photo match.
This keeps victims hoping their sweetie is innocent despite the fact
they are actually a scammer that is changing information regularly
to avoid being found out.
That is why, I try to stress to victims that they are being scammed
and waiting to find the perfect match in information is sometimes
next to impossible.
But the fact its a scam still remains.
It still comes down in the end that there are absolutely no one
on line with a West Africa connection in their story that are not scammers.
Some scams last for more than 3 years before they come to a end.
Some scammers never ask for money at any time.
Some scams are just smuggling stolen goods by forwarding packages
or cashing checks or money orders. There are a few that get their
victims to use a stolen credit card number to withdraw money and send it to
the scammer.
Well, I am very glad that more than just one person has been helped
in this case.
When, You feel like talking please come back and tell everything
possible about this scammer.
Your efforts can go a very long way in shutting, Him down.
I wish, You both the best and, You are able to heal emotionally.
Some times the emotional harm is much greater than any monetary loss.

Kindest Regards Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'//

I would sure love to see dates and IP addresses to see if this is really the same guy that was scamming me..... That would tell us for sure. I have kept all of my emails and I have just discovered IP addresses. I wish I would have known about them sooner. This guy said he was from the states, but the first IP put him in Ghana to begin with. My complaint in all of this is that the dating site didn't check IP addresses to confirm information. I'm not all the tech saavy and I figured it out. This guy is very good at story telling - he would do better writing novels. The poems that he sent me came from Lovingyou.com. At least the first one - I didn't have the strength to check the rest. I'm still pretty upset emotionally to go much further. I'm pretty old and wise to have gotten caught up in all of this. I'm just as mad at myself as I am him. Anybody willing to share dates and IPs?

NO SECOND CHANCES FOR 'JAMIE GRANT' FROM ME! :) Thank God for Agent 86's 'interverntion' (as I am calling it, lol) yesterday morning. I've blocked Jamie with no intention of removing the blocks or answering his calls. I have NO doubt this man is a scammer, as I originally suspected. And, yesterday was the best day I've had in the last 6 weeks. I am SO past all of this and feel blessed!

Yes, I would be money it is the same scammer that is contacting both of us. And, I imagine he did contact you on Sunday. He contacted me again on Monday monring. Did he tell you he has 2 kids at Oxford UK? That he is stuck in Copenhagen, Denmark? Did he tell you he was German and that accent was German? It didn't sound German to me. What do you think?

Jamie did give me a valid Virginia cell phone number but that means only someone got him a VA # and he did answer that number, sometimes. But, when he called me, it was always blocked.

Oh, yes, this scammer seemed to know his Bible VERY well. We even prayed together.

I don't believe he reads this site. I do believe these scammers simply share information and pass around the same 'love letters', scam ideas, MO's, etc.

I haven't dated for many years and I wasn't trying to this time. I DO NOT BELONG TO ANY dating sites. I've had a MySpace page for years that has only my family, close friends and some of my fav Christian musicians as friends. I frequently get messages there from men that I always delete without reading. But, for some reason, I read Jamie's message and responsed. And, THAT, was my big mistake. I've since reported him to MySpace and they removed his profile/page.

I am so sorry that this scammer, and all the others, are hurting and taking from good people. I will keep you in my prayers, as I do all the others here now.


AGENT 86, Maxwell Smart:

Thanks again for your 'intervention' yesterday morning. I don't know what I was thinking, considering giveing Jamie a second chance, but your straight forward, honest, say-what-needs-to-be-said post woke me up! And, it's interesting, it looks like God led me to your intervention shortly after you posted it. Jesus love me :)

I am being very careful now. I was ignorant enough to respond to a message I received on MySpace (which I never did before and will never do again) and that is how all of this started. I have never and have no plans to join any online dating sites. So, I do believe that is pretty safe. Isn't it?

Like you posted, I NEVER thought anyone would be able to fool me with the Bible or in general. And, I think the worst of this for me is feeling like an idiot. But, I've handed it all to Jesus. And, like many other things in ny life, He's going to take this awful situation and turn it into something for Him. I've already made it a prayer mission - I am covering everyone here with prayer and maybe there needs to be a wider focus on this situation. Not sure where this will lead me but, I am open to wherever God wants to take me to fight these scammers.

To everyone, don't trust these scammers. Trust your gut, trust your faith, and walk away.

God bless you all.

Dear Joe,
Thanks for your message,I appreciate the time you took in writing me,it shows you really want something outta this as i am.
I knew all your thought were that i am in states right now.I am so sorry if i kept you on suspense.I intentionally told you all about me because i hate to lie to someone that i think i should tell the real truth about me.I have no other choice than to tell you the truth about myself.I am right here in Nigeria,Africa fed up of life and even thinking of committing suicide but i guess i should hold on till i hear from you maybe you are interested in me or not.I understand that this internet stuff is hard to believe because of what people do with it nowadays as i fell into this mess,thats why i am in the condition i am in today.I will appreciate your help and i will love to hear more about you.

I really want to get out of here and come back to the states. I really need your trust and help to get me out of this trouble i am into and i promise i will not get you disappointed.I will really appreciate your help towards this. Once i get there, we will arrange things in order and we can start a new life together, and i want to believe that you will not let me down. As i've discussed what brought me down here from the states. While i was coming here, the african guy told me to come with enough money for investment and i even went to the extent to sell my inherited house just because i want to leave the states and make my self happy thinking i had finally found the man i have been waiting for all my life.I came in here with a total sum of $980,000.00 which is all the money i realize from my Dad's business and contracts renumeration. Because the African guy told me of an idea to investment in African Sculptures and Antiques which i did never knew he was after my money.I was blindfolded with love thinking i have found someone i would spend the rest of my life with.

When i got here, he made all things possible means just to get the money from me and get away with my money.when i noticed this,i took the money and my traveling boxes and deposited it with a Shipping/Insurance Company here in Africa in order to safe myself and my assets. Thereafter,i left the guy's apartment to a new apartment where i am in right now and from which i am writing to you now. Now, i'm in need of your help, have gotten the enough money to run myself when i get to the states, i want to come over to your end so we can start a new life together, i don't want to live here anymore, you know i'm a foreigner here and it is absolute danger for me here, so that is why i need your kind assistance. How i want you to help me? I have the money hidden from the guy here in West Africa and I've left his apartment, because i might get setup if i did not act fast, so for me to be more safe and secure, i put this money in a trunk box and got it locked up with a security code known to me only, and i deposited the box with some of my traveling luggages with a Shipping and Insurance Company who render private diplomatic delivery service and i told them that the box is my traveling luggage, which i
want to send forth to the states because i'm returning home, then i paid them up their custody and security fee, but i did not tell them that the box contains money in order to make everything secure and safeI want the box sent to you while i catch up with you as soon as it is been delivered to you then i come over to meet you and we can start a new life together thats if you find me interesting and still want to have a relationship with me. Every arrangement for the delivery is kinda perfect,i have obtained customs papers for private freight and there are seals on the box showing that it is a private delivery and check performed, it is free from customs checks, it will be delivered at your door step by the diplomats of the security company, you do not need to burn out to receive it.

The boxes has security lock code known to me only, only me can open the box, except if i tell anyone the Code, so the box cannot be opened on the way for delivery to you.Therefore,i want you to contact me as soon as possible, so that i can give you all my deposit details and information for you to make the Clearance from the Shippng Company as my finance who is to receive my box for me there so they can be rest assured that the box is safe for delivery since my Finance would be receiving them for me . And once the boxes gets to you,i will let you know the lock codes to open the boxes and the instructions, then you can open the boxes in order to have some money sent to me for my flight to the states. Once i get there, we shall invest the money together and start a new family, provided you will not disappoint neither take advantage of me.I hereby promise 15% of the total fund for you to meet any personal needs and we can still get something done with the balance.I am counting on you with trust and i will appreciate your trust towards this and hoping to hear from you and to meet you in person. Let me hear from you as soon as possible, so that i can give you the deposit details and the contact of the shipping company to arrange the shipment asap.

Take Care.

Anybody willing to share dates and IPs?


Sure, if it helps you in any way I am MORE than happy to give you dates, and more information. I'll post that info here when I get home tonight.


[quote was foolish enough to send money to him for his shipment of equipment


Jamie tried to get me to send him money for electronics equipment because he needed to pay a provider and he was stuck in Copenhagen. More on that tonight but I do believe this could be the same scammer using different names and photos. And, the more info we get out here, the more people we can help.

Bless your heart, I am so sorry this man hurt you so deeply. You are in my prayers FOR REAL!

Be blessed,
'In Better Hands Now'

Well, this is going to be a shorter version, lol, but complete. I just lost what I'd compiled. I'm going to address a couple of your questions/concerns then post a few important scammer traits, stories, lies Jamie uses, in list format then I am outta here for the evening. I am SO set free from all of this confusion and the constant battle with Jamie over MONEY.

Anybody willing to share dates and IPs


IP Addresses: I checked IP address on Jamie's emails from start to finish. They ping off at least 6-8 different IP Addresses within each email to reach me. Very different than any other email headers I've seen. These guys work together, I'm sure of it.

Dates:
June 7 - Jamie sent initial message to me on MySpace
June 8 - I read it and responded.
June 8-11 - we communicated via Yahoo IM ('IM'). He claimed to be 'home in Norfolk' This was the most wonderful time. I was falling for Jamie, we laughed, prayed, shared, etc. It seemed 'normal'
June 13 - Jamie told me he was going to Copenhagen, Denmark to Bid on a job.
June 14 - He 'left for Copenhagen' would call me from layover in Spain. I went to church and never heard from him again until Monday afternoon.
June 15 - He IMd me at work asking where I'd been, swearing he'd been trying to reach me, sure he had, lol.
June 16 - claimed he made the presenation, life/love was still good. He started talking about our forever life togehter.
June 18-July 2 - he started asking for money and it never stopped. I an quite tenacious and wouldn't back down. We argued a lot, but also talked romance, faith, prayed, etc.
July 2 - He sent me lovely roses and a teddy bear at the office. That night, it all went south when he said he sent me flowers, now I needed to send him the money he needed. We didn't speak for days.
July 3 - He was supposed to come to meet me for the long weekend. LOL, hard to do when you get stuck in Denmark, lol. Same ordeal, he was scamming for dollars and I was telling him I knew he was a sammer and not about to back down from him. Oh, it was more miserable than happy. Went days on/off without communication.
July 13, I'm fed up and wanting info. I told him I'd sent him the $$$, where to Western Union it. This is were it all fell apart (or together, for my sake). He gave me an address in Lagos Nigera. I flipped out. He tried to calm me down. But, I said I'd try and get the $$$ to him. Then, he sent SMS from the asmsaa.com domain. I got to work, Googled it and it led me to a post here for some Anthony scammer that was a mix of Jamie's MySpace profile and first messsage to me.

Believe it or not, I broke out into laughter. I had him, finally, proof. And, I'd take action of some sort. I told him if I could safe 1 woman the suffering he'd put me throught (constant mind battering for money) it would be worht it.

I then posted here and broke it off with him. I reported him to MySpace and after 'looking into it' MySpace removed him about 12 days ago. We both backed off.

July 24, I got a short IM that he was praying for me and he was coming to see me (his steadfast story) to prove me wrong and prove his undying love for me. I responded but we shared no more than a few words until Monday.

July 27, He was online and we IM'd, he swore he was for real, he would never hurt me, he would never be angry with me, he knows Jesus has a great plan for our lives, He would love me for ever and in Heaven, etc. It was then I thought, wow, what if I AM wrong? What if this guy is real, but inside I knew I was right on about him being a scammer, and posted here. We have not communicated since.

The most difficult part for me is feeling like a complete IDIOT. I am an extremely strong woman and strong in my faith. So, for someone to fool me with the Bible had me very hurt and confused. I'd look around at church and wonder if i could trust anyone. But, I can. God reminded me that not one Godly man in my church family 'would treat anyone that way, let alone a woman they claimed to love more than they've ever loved anyone before.' I have to agree.

I also have to agree with Agent 86. It doesn't matter if your scammer is my scammer. They ARE BOTH scammes, without a doubt. If you read the many posts here you will find over and over and over the same words of love, poems, stories of being widowed, sending flowers and teddy bears, promises of deep love and marriage, etc. Most all are stranded in some foreign land for business.

Now, some interesting things to point out to try and help all the women I can identify the man claiming to 'love' them is a SCAMMER.
1. Read my posts above. And, then add...
2. His claims to own his own project management company in Virginia.
3. Has a beloved dog named Mr. Lolly (and he asked me for $300 for Mr. Lolly too!)
4. He gave me a cell number sayng 'Call it any time, I'm always here for you baby'. But, 95% of the time it rang in loops, or calls wouldn't go through at all.
5. When he called me it always came up as a blocked number.
6. On several occasions he wanted me to talk to someone on the phone to promise to make debts good.
7. He wanted to have his client here in US put money into my credit card account and then I would transfer the money to Jamie.
8. ALWAYS he wanted the money to go to another person. I always questioned that and, naturally, he always had an excuse. I just never believed those excuses.
7. He continually tried to get me to give him personal information to steal my identity.
8. He didn't talk to me much on the phone when he realized I was listening to any and all sounds I could pick up and then I would ask him about them. I heard babies, I heard women's voices, men speaking in languages other than German, English, etc. He would always cut me off immediately when I recognized this.
8. He would break his almost 24/7 contact for a day or two and make an excuse. Always after those times, his IM slang would change (improve) he'd use diffent emvironments (IM wallpaper), the kissing and hugging smiley faces, etc.
9. He swore he had never IM'd with anyone but his kids but he sure knew from the beginning how to use IM and how to load the Falling Hearts wallpaper.
10. I did sent the $100 to Elizabeth Coari. I googled her after that and she does exist in New Mexico. These people are connected everywhere.
11. He told me he loved me more than he had loved anyone, ever, even more than his wife. Oh, really.
12. He asked me to check into wedding costs, plans, etc.
13. He kept telling me he had a check for $3.7 million and if I'd just give him the money he would fly straight to me and pay me back. Right. lol.

So, you can see that this scammer tells the same stories as 100 other scammers on this page. Many are the same man, just changing names and photos. But, I do believe they work together. The IP addresses ping from Africa to unknown/false, to inside the U.S. and then to me. And, who ate the women in the U.S. that was going to accept the money for him? This takes my mind to a different and frightening take on this. Frightens me about our national security.

So, you see, these people are all SCAMMERS. No matter what names they use, no matter what fake photo they use, etc. They may tweak & swap their stories here and there but they are ALL SCAMMERS and you need to run. Run far and fast.

I find this website cathartic. It has helped me tremendously just knowing I am not alone. That I was not wrong. That as horrible as it is, men scam in Jesus' name. And, it BREAKS MY HEART to read posts of women losing their life savings, single moms whose children were also affected emotionally and monetarily, widows hearts and lives being shatted again, etc. I have cried for them all and prayed from them all. I do not know where this fight on the scammers will take me but, I feel there may be a reason I was allowed to walk this path. I'm a scrapper and these scammers have a fight on their hands from this gal.

I wish you all the best of luck. My prayers are with you and I will be around here to offer support and share my story to any who need it or will listen.

Just call me 'God's Girl' :) Be blessed all.
