Name: Jeffrey Bradshaw
Other Comments: Jeffrey contacted me thru a singles site. We have been talking for about 1 1/2 mths. He says he is a clothing designer. But he never gave me the name of the company or the label he has or is working for. He said he left for the UK last friday because he FINALLY got the contract with a company that he had been waiting for over a yr now. He was gone Fri-Tue. Said he had to be back in the U.S. on tue, because he had ordered material from the Netherlands worth over 2.5 million. So he had to be here on tue, to make sure it got here undamaged. He was to come to meet me for the 1st. time this thur. but at the last minute he had to leave tue nite after getting back to the U.S. in the morning, to go to West Africa. Some of the merchandise was coming from there. Well the paperwork was messed up there & he had to leave right away to correct it, so that he would not lose the merchandise to the government. Already getting suspicious. He called me during the day wed, saying he had to talk to me. That when I get home we would IM each other. When I got home I got online with him. He started to tell me he had a problem, that when he left home, which is supossedly in Seattle Washington, he forgot his wallet on his dresser. How can you go thru airport without showing ID??? Anyway, he said he got there because he had a VIP ticket. He didn't want to ask me but that he needed my help with money to pay for his hotel room, which I might say was $1000. a nite. Rich huh. Well told him couldn't help. Didn't have the $. He knew I got paid tomorrow, thursday, & asked if I could hold off paying my bills & send him the $ via Western Union. I told him OK. Asked for the info where to send it to. It goes as follows: Name Jeffrey Bradshaw, Address to send to is follows 105 Airport Road Maryland, Lagos, Nigeria 23401. I asked him for the name of the hotel, but he came back & said I didn't need that. But I asked him plese, & this is what he gave me: Extanza Hotel. Hello, this is how I got on this site about dating scams. Told him I would do it in the morning. He made a comment to me about I was his only hope, & that why would I want to piss him off by not sending the $. RED FLAG for sure. All this time he was calling me honey, sweetheart, baby. & that when I send himt the $ in the morning he would pay the hotel mgr for the room. God I want to believe him, but, I don't think so. I knew this was too good to be true. During the time we talked, he sent me photos of his supossedly 3 cars, motorcycle, his 2 story house, with indoor swimming pool. He also told me that he was falling in love with me more & more each passing day, & that he wanted to marry me. He hasn't even met me yet. How stupid does he think I am. Well needless to say, I'm not going to send the money or answer any of his email, tx msg, or anything else ever again. If it turns out hes not a scammer well I lost my heart only, but if he is I would have lost more than my heart, it would have been my hard earned money too. Which I can't afford to lose. I told him when we were IM each other, that please please please not let this be a scam about $. That Ihave heard alot of scams about people from Nigeria scaming people out of $. Well they are not going to get mine. He says he is an Italian, when has been here in the U.S. living in Washing state. His wife died 5 yrs. ago, & he has a daughter named Madison, who lives in Italy with her grandmother. I told him it must have been hard on them both loosing her when Madison was so young, she is 18yrs old. He said yes, but we are over that, so nonchalantly like nothing. We are going on with our lives. No emotion, while I was talking to him. Like it was nothing. Red flag then. He has a very heavy italian accent. So I don't know for sure if he is italian or not, or just a good actor. Hopefully this will help someone else out, & I pray that he really isn't a scammer. I would rather lose him as a partner, than for anyone else to go thru this. By having their feeling grow more for him each and every day, thinking that he is the one for me.
You will find it's the Sheraton Hotel in Lagos, seen all of this before! He's a good actor! He's not Italian, he's Nigerian! I think if you call the Hotel, they will confirm that the most that they charge per night is $100 and not $1000.
Have you a telephone number for him? please post it here! It can be checked.
Your pride is worth more than this scum bag! It is worth keeping this is mind. Do not communicate with him any longer!

OMG, This guy has been doing this for awhile! We actually were communicating back in Feb. I got a bad feeling about this guy and stopped Instant Messenging. I have an address for him in Maple Valley Washington. He talks a great line! I was falling for this guy too.
He was telling me that his daughter Madison was in a hospital in Africa going through surgery at that time. He didnt ask for any money from me, but it probably was just a matter of time till he did.

The Jeff you have in Maple Valley is actually my dad. This scammer has been a super pain in his ass, dozens of women send him cards etc... I think these are the same nigerian guys that try to sell people bulldogs etc. for super cheep because they are on some sort of church mission or something. Anyway, do not send anything to the Maple Valley address, and this guys is a scammer!

Hello Both of You could stand to learn about scams and scammers.
To the first poster as far as I can see from this thread Your scammer
is from West Africa most likely Nigeria.
Just like the second Anonymous poster.
Simple facts that answer Your questions.
To begin with the pictures are stolen and at no time did either of You
get connected to whoever You were told You were.
The entire story You were given was fake.
The California connection is from Yahoo's main station that the
message went through.
In fact You both were connected to young Black Men working out of
a Internet Cafe.
They have the ability to make themselves to appear they are in any Country
As for going after them.
Thats a waste of Your time.
Odds are He used a false IP address and cannot be traced.
Scammers use fake names and have many e mail addresses and many
phone numbers and usually will attempt to scam their victim
again by using another fake name, address, phone number and more
If You are ever contacted by anyone and I mean anyone with any kind
of connection to West Africa at all its 100% scammers NO EXCEPTIONS.
There is not one single White or Black, Man or Woman on line from,
Nigeria, Ghana, Dakar, Senegal, Benin Republic, Any Refugee Camp,
Gold Coast, Ivory Coast, All of West Africa that is not a scammer.
Busting them is next to impossible at this time.
Please check out the links I will provide for You and learn what is really
Never allow anyone from West Africa to ever to contact You ever again.
Hey Jeffrey I hope you read this. You are a slim ball. I hate you. Someone needs to teach you a lesson, and now you are going to get stopped for all this crap that you have done to me, and to a good family friend. You just go around and hit on innocent woman, and lie to them... You have also put ads in the nickel ads saying that you have bulldog pups that are free from adoption. You say that your in Africa, but than you are suddenly in California. What the hell is wrong with you??? My first thought is ALOT.... You said that you wouldn't meet me to see the pups, but you wanted the $$$$$ for them... I say screw you, you son of a bitch... I think once women see what you are all about, you will be shut down... I have contacted americas most wanted... Hopefully you have something against you, and when you get caught, I'll be sitting here laughing at what a loser you are.... Hope you enjoy reading this...
He was speaking to me a few weeks ago. Found him on Match
wow I thought something was strange and stop the talking.
Thank you so much for posting this. Glad I went with my gut....

I met Jeffrey on MATCH.com last year from Seattle, WA. Said he left his wallet at home when traveling to Nigeria. Said he was a VERY successful fashion designer. Had a very inticing Itailian accent with beautil word I have never heard from any other man. Long story short, he took over my world, my every minute of every day for weeks. Said he wanted to get married, all of that. I believed him. When he got to Nigeria, I believed he would return my money the next day. I sent him 10,000 then 3,000 American dollars, which he never returned. I have reported him to the FBI, UPS, Western Union and Match.com never did get a response from anyone. Please stop him. He is an expert at this. I am so very sorry to hear that I am not the only one he has done this to.
