Dating scam on Zoosk/Facebook. Let's email. I say no, let's chat via IM. We chat: he's a widower, in England, but moving back to this area. Romance abounds. Would like me to come to England. I don't reply... then he says he has a problem with his job (he's a construction engineer) and his workers mess up a cement mixer and he needs several thousands pounds (not dollars) then he can get paid and come back here. English language skills are poor. Will not give any details of his personal life. Doesn't speak as a father would. All relatives are dead or are out of the country. Doesn't understand some slang words. Education history on zoosk dating site doesn't match education. He asked for money, I said no, he started talking about how I now doubt him and that hurts him. I send him information about how everything he said shouts scam. I log off IM, no further contact.

Update: This scam was good... but not good enough. He had given me a local address. Address is real. His 'name' matched the name on the owner of the property. But the age is wrong! He also sent me two batches of flowers; one the day before my original post, one the monday following the post, after I had tried and tried to trip him up. Ultimately I did, but not to my satisfaction.

I sent a note stating that I received the flowers, to see if he would respond. Oh yes, he did! I toyed with him, confronting and challenging him at every turn. It is to be noted that it was obvious that some of his answers were delayed because he was trying to do his research, as I had.

Then I backed off to see what he would do. Rather than trying to get me to give him large amounts of money to correct the issue at 'work' he wanted me to pay for his and his daughter's airfare... so that he, 'could hold me in his arms'. I toyed with him more and finally said (hoping to get him to give up) that I would 'have to set (him) free'... to which he responded, 'oh stop babe you want me to go and kill myself!' Oh brother! So I played that one more as well.

At some point he asked if we could have 'sex' online. I was not interested and played shy and coy and he dropped it. I figure if I were someone who wanted to believe him it would have truly suckered me in emotionally.

He asked me for my telephone number. I said I had already given it to him - which I had, in the beginning, before I caught on. Well, this piece of work did call me! Complete with Nigerian accent! There is no way on earth that this guy was an American or a Brit!

I also confronted him about his lack of command of the English language. Well, his 'connection was poor' and there was a break, then he came back on and presto! he had his command of the English language back at a 7th grade level! Wow...

If y'all come across this guy, do NOT be fooled. Use what I have told you if you suspect you are being used. If the guy/gal is too good to be true, send no money. If they are who they say they are, money has nothing to do with a relationship.

Update: This guy is now calling me, which is overly laughable because his accent is so thick I cannot understand him at all. No, it's not an American or British accent, but an extremely thick accent nonetheless. I hang up, but today (with calls ad nauseum) it sounded rather threatening. He also texted me with new email addresses (supposedly, but no emails from him...) and he i.m.'d me with a new id - jmbored90@yahoo.com. Beware of this scammer.

He is making his rounds and using Match or other online dating sites to obtain your userid and figuring out that you have a Yahoo IM account. He gives the same story as above to everyone so beware and delete him from your IM if you come across him. Unfortunately, the guy in the pictures is probably unaware that his pictures are being used to try to lore women into this scam. If you use IM and someone sends you an unsolicited IM, I would suggest that you do not talk to them, as they could be scammers.

This guy also contacted me with the same information. Says he has a 12 year old son. He is a widower. He came back to Malvern because his monther is from here. I moved to sweden when he was 3 yrs old. He wants to find a woman that he can trust and be in a long term relationship with. I called him, he does not sound like a Brit or an American. He was hard to understand. Wanted my address to send me a letter and flowers. I did not give it to him. His Yahoo email is jmbored90@yahoo.com. Glad this site popped up.


You are so charming and sexy
