Name: Wolfgang, Werner, Siegfried Leddin
Email: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
phone #: 011-44-776-149-9175 (England - he could be reached there until he told me he had his phone taken away by the authorities)
011-964-790-193-9654 - (Baghdad -could never get through number was not in service)
Other Comments: Anybody know this man?
He pretends to been born in Germany, immigrated to the US at the age of 11,(but he does not speak any German) married at the age of 32 in Texas, divorced 9 years later and never lived with a woman again.
He said he worked in Baghdad until 10 days ago, now in London detained at Custom Office at Heathrow and needs money.(2000 pounds) His story is very very bizarre - never heard anything like it before. After 10 days he told me, that he wanted to move to Canada and buy a house with a pool for us to live in and that he loves me.
I tried to explain to him that love just does not happen that way!
I ask if he got his pictures from a man's magazine, cause he sure does not look like 60, but he laughed it off!!
His profile was on Match.com :wswleddin - age 60 looking for a woman in Canada up to 1000km from Vancouver, BC.
So please let me know if you have seen or heard of him.
I think he works with an English Guy - Ivor Keith Wheeler. I have a picture of this mans passport, but no address. I also have some more pictures of 'Leddin' (he scammed me out of 600.00 pounds, but not the 2000.00 he was hinting he would need to get released from UK Custom.
Yes, he's targeting Canadian women. I also met him on match. The same email son_ofman. I am messaging him every day, and he has now asked for 800 pounds to be wired to some guy called Harry Ricardson who is supposedly an 'official' at Heathrow airport. The money is supposed to get a document released to he can get the strong box which has $20 million US inside. (At the beginning he said there was $10 mil in it so he's slipping up)
I am playing this guy along beautifully, now at the stage where I told him my money was in the UK, and I need approval of the bank to release funds which are in a term deposit. I am telling him that my brother is going to wire the mony to the official, he was not pleased when I said I got my brother involved, but I told him everything was OK.
I have just emailed the UK branch of Interpol to see if they can do anything.
He asked me for my address so this guy could deliver the box, and then Wolfgang would fly to Vancouver and we would go on a beautiful honeymoon....what a bunch of bullshit!! Anyway I did give him an addres.....not mine but of the RCMP office in Vancouver. I'm beginning to enjoy this game, but I feel sorry for the poor women who he sucks in. I will be on messenger tomorrow to stall him again, he is getting very frustrated, but trying his best to get that money wired.
I will keep you posted ladies.

Have you also heard from Wolfgang Leddin? these 2 are either the same person or the work together - one in UK and one in Ghana.
Have you tracked his e-mail IP address yet?
I posted all the pictures above, one from Ivor Wheeler (his passport picture) and all the others from Wolfgang.
If you ever talk to him on the phone you will hear that he talks like he has a potatoe in his mouth. Very difficult to understand.
I don't know if there is anything you can do at this point - just don't pay him - report him to the singles site you found him on as a scammer, so his profile will dissappear from that site. I found the Wheeler guy in the UK when I searched for him on Match.com UK. His name there was IKW48. I copied his 2 pictures which look completely different than the one you or I posted here.
I could download these as well, if that would help. .
I check this site at least once a week, so if you need more info, just leave a message here.

Hi Ladies, BC Girl here,
Update: I can\t spin this out much longer, he's been trying to get the money now for a week, and I've come up with more and more excuses to the point where I'm getting very creative. \ANyway, I'm supposed to meet him on messenger tonight so I will have to drop the bombshell, and tell him that he's busted, but I'm going to pretend that I'm an official of the Interpol division of the RCMP and the we have been tracing him for some time and that we have enough information to find him. I might put a scare inot him, but with scum like he is maybe it won't even faze him.
I called the London Metropolitan Police in the UK this morning and told them the story, but they said there;s not much they could do, as he could collect the money from any western union office. So, the game stops tonight.
I will update you on this tomorrow night wish me luck!!
Oh boy I wonder how many people this guy is working on at one time. He only comes on to chat to me once a day at the same time every afternoon, some days he misses. He is obviously very busy. How many unsuspecting woman are sending him money. It really does grate to think there is no way of stopping him.
I posted as the person to be playing him along and see now that there are others. No it is not just Canadian woman he is doing this too since that is not where I am from.
The amount of money he is talking is 20 million US dollars in my case as well. I guess he plays on others greed as well. I think that some one coming to you with that much illegal money, ( supposing it were true) would be very risky and scarey anyway.
Hi Canada Gal here, - regarding Wolfgang Leddin - Ivor Wheeler - whoever he is!!!
Hi , I am curious what happened on Messenger? Did you bust him?
In my case, I lost money about 600 pounds before I realized that he is a scammer. Had never heard of this kind of scam before, but when he wanted 4000 pounds I got suspicious and his story did not add up anymore.
He told me he had 100 kg gold,(one kg. is worth about $35,000'00) and a 50 kg box full of 100 $ US bills, which is about $4 Million $. He even sent me a scan picture which the officials at Heathrow airport supposedly did. It is not a good picture, but I will attach it.
He came to London by private Embassy jet from Baghdad which 'prior Minister' with the name of Khosrovi had organized for him, so he could traval under immunity. - And I believed all this shit.
He is so full of it, tell me, which of the singles sites did you meet him?? I met him on Match.com and he wanted the next day already talk on messenger. He talked to me at 9 PM at night, telling me he just got out of bed.
I wish I knew how to stop him. I reported him to Match and they took his profile off, but then I guess he is just changing his name and picture and voila here he goes again.
Keep us posted, as more people read this, as more will be made aware of this SOB.
Hope to hear from all of you soon.
I found the attached picture on Match.com UK

Hi Canada Girl and all the other ladies,
I have managed to still keep him hanging. I told him that Western Union needs to verify my brothers ID before they can send the money. He seemed to eat that one, but apparently not too happy about it. I didn't go on messenger or email him over the wweekend, and I got an email from him this morning, declaring his undying love for me ( and he has never met me!). I emailed him back saying that I will email him at lenght tonight as I was working and couldn't email him now. So, I will compose the email I send him, then copy and paste it to here so you can all see it. It will definitely put a scare into h im, as I am going to drop a couple of names (authorities) just to make it more believable.
Yes, I got the same Khosrovi story about he is the diplomat taking this box to London, but needs 800 pounds to complete the documents. I got my friend to phone this guy pretending to be my brother, and asked him what he needed the money for, just looking out for his sister. The guy got pretty angry and wouldn't answer the question, my friend said that he sounded like eastern european or maybe arab. Anyway, whatever he is, he's a scumbag. With all this internet fraud going on, women should be more careful.......btw, I'm writing a book, and this guy will be in it for sure, as I have loads of material, he will be exposed. Keep this title in mind...'WTF Don't judge this book by it's cover'. I'm hoping it will be out for next year.
So, check back tonight and you will see what I have written to the scumbag. BTW, I've never seen those 2 pictures above from him.

Hi BC Girl,
those 2 pictures I found on Match.com UK. When I searched the site for Wheeler, I came across the profile name IKW48 and I put 2 and 2 together, but in order to be able to read the profile I actually had to post a profile. I pretended to be English, blond, blue eyed who loves lots of travelling all over the world. I put him on my favourites and sent him a wink. He had these 2 pictures attached. I got a few letter, but because I was a 'non paying member' I don't know if he actually wrote to me. A week later his profile was gone.
He sure must love the gals in BC, cause I am from BC as well.
I could not get in touch by phone with Ivor, I made him mad, because I called him a scammer, so he refused to talk to me , but Wolfgang loved me to pieces. Actually he wanted to move in with me, as long as he did not have 'our own place'
I told him that would not be possible, my place is way to small for 2 people!! ha ha.
He is not arab, he is from Ghana, I checked his IP address - too late for my stupidity, but before more damage was done. If you scroll up this list, there is a movie clip from Ghana, have a look, you learn how they talk etc.
Good luck tonight.
OK scumbag, I had you pegged from the first couple of emails. You've just been exposed honey.Everyone has been laughing at you sleezbag, I have gathered enough information on you that your scam has been reported to the authorities, and you will be traced. You had better look behind you scumbag cause they're coming to get you. You think you're a smooth operator, but you should get your facts straight before you slip up buddy. Does your mother know what you are up to. I'm sure she would be ashamed of you. Your name should be s_onofabitch instead of s_ofman. You are the lowest of the low sonofabitch. May you rot in hell you bastard.
Your honey baby babe sweetheart
Well, above is the email I sent just now. I got a huge sense of satisfaction. Wish I could see the look on his face!!
anonymous from Canada
Hi BC Girl,
Maybe I should get in touch with him again, have a different e-mail address he does not know and start playing a little game with him too, that would give me satisfaction as well.
Have you reported him to Romance Scam? I just discovered that site and I think I will report him there with pictures as well.
Good to hear from you again.
Take care and be careful out there.
Have another picture attached I have

Hi again ladies, I am the 3rd person in this equation. With Ivor in Bagdad and Khosrovi having left on Sunday for London with the consignment as Ivor likes to call it. So yesterday he was very worried and today came the crunch. Now this guy comes on yahoo same time everyday for less than an hour I would say he has got a list of people he has at certain times of the day, I imagine he has many he is setting up at one time. Then I imagine he has a file or a book with the details of each person so he know what to talk to them about. I met him on Mate 1 and there he has the same handle as above,IKW48, so i will go on and report him tonight. I sent an email to interpol in my home country. They didn't even bother to reply. It really makes me annoyed that nothing is being done to stop these low lives. As Bc girl has I have a file called men and there are a lot of men out there who just like to play games. Maybe a bit less low lives but not really what they do still costs even if not in the pocket. I will post below the conversation today. Doubt he will be in contact again. But I to got a lot of satisfaction from this.

Ivor Wheeler (1/12/2009 12:34:49 p.m.): he's been trying to negotiate his way through,that's why he didn't get in touch earlier

lawrance.jill (1/12/2009 12:37:29 p.m.): so where is the document did he never have it ?
Ivor Wheeler (1/12/2009 12:37:39 p.m.): but what he has on him is not enough to cover the cost.so,he needs about 400 Pounds to complete it

Ivor Wheeler (1/12/2009 12:39:08 p.m.): he said he had it but is expired and he is supposed to have renew it, but he didn't think they'll be checking all that because he has passed b4 by just showing his diplomatic passport

I have to go to work now, but will be back later and I will copy and paste the letter Wolfgang sent me - because Wolfgang was in Baghdad with Khosrovi and Ivor was a 'Customs Officer' in the UK - Very funny hey?? - the story just changed a little bit.
