I am very new to online dating and have never, ever, imaged that there are so many scammers online, until I was almost scammed by this guy and then I found out the information on your site.

I found this guy's profile on the Match.com in early October 2009 and I was attracted by his eyes in the picture, they were so honest and sincere, so I read his profile and it was also very interesting and it seems he put a lot of effort in writing it. He claimed to be a 44 years-old man, live in Bolton near Manchester, his Profile name: gldneagle13iiu and keyword is: True Love swings by once a while... The following is his profile:
In my own words for fun:
I love watching movies anywhere; depends on the day and my mood. I love creative design, artwork/antiques and gardening . Favorite actors are Clive Owen and Denzel Washington

Favorite hot spots:
I would love to take my partner out for dinner on a yacht in Hawaii. I prefer small and cozy coffee shops; favorite holiday destination was Amsterdam and my dream destinations are the Great Coral Reefs, Australia and the Caribbean Islands.

favorite things:
Favorite foods..Spaghetti pepperoni, Chicken/Turkey Sandwich. Favorite books..Adventure. Favorite TV shows..Lost, Prison Break, 24, CSI-Miami, wildlife documentaries.. Favorite music..Classical pop, R & B, Gospel. Favorite color is blue

favourite book:
The last book I read was 'Choke' by Chuck Palahniuk. I'm now reading 'The curious Incident of the dog in the night-time' by Mark Haddon.

About my life and what I'm looking for
I am a down to earth, intelligent and caring man with an excellent sense of humor; I think I am a very fair and level headed person who believes strongly in open and honest communication, and I am a very compassionate and caring person, who believes in helping my partner achieve their goals and dreams.

I'm a truly decent person, and know how to treat others very, very well. I'm blessed with a good brain, and can offer a lot to a partner intellectually. I also have a quick wit and great sense of humor, also from the good brain :) I have a lot of love to give, and am capable of unconditional love. If I fall for someone, there's very little I won't do for them.

Emotionally, I’m a 'glass half full' sort of guy. I try to make the best of things, even if they are not so great. Also, I'm a great friend and listener. I don't hold grudges and really just like to move forward. At times, I can be “not so” romantic, romantic, and then VERY romantic. Not only do I remember important dates, but I know the value of the “not so important” ones. What I mean is that most everyone enjoys flowers on a special day, but flowers at the beginning of the week, “just because”, will definitely make for a great week AND get the office's attention, right? It could be quite simple or a little more steamy and sexy, who knows, but it will be fun thinking and wondering what could be next.

As for the intimacy part, you'll just have to wait on the answer for that except I will say that I am a giver, not a taker and usually “very” attentive. I tend to gravitate to you if you are smart, have a positive attitude, and are confident in your abilities and your appearance. I also like when you can communicate, observe and adapt those observations.You may have goals in life such as education, children or travel, and I am open to all of those things. Ultimately, I hope you can just relax and enjoy the moment... AND ME!. Oh, if you have a GREAT smile, you do get bonus points! I am willing to do just about anything for the people I care about.

So if you have an interest in an emotionally stable, attentive male, with communication skills, who has to ability to romance and raise your female temperature a notch or two, and can be a whole lot of fun to wrap your body around... well maybe you should write me or respond to me.. I'm fun to be around, and can always make you smile... GUARANTEED!

I am looking for a woman who is, ultimately, imperfect - yet, somehow - 'perfect for me'. A deeply spiritual woman, for whom, God - however she envisions him - is the central focus of her life. She would project beauty, from the inside, out. She would possess a basic self-respect and 'love of self', that would enable her to genuinely love and respect others. A woman of unyielding faith - in God, in herself and in the man she loves. She would be bright, energetic and full of joy. She should have a rich sense of humor and child-like playfulness. She must be 'down to earth', with an ability to appreciate and enjoy the simplicity of life, remaining grounded and rational, when life becomes hectic. She would be a warmly affectionate woman, who 'loves life passionately.

I want a woman who I can call my best friend and companion - compassionate, honest, genuine, trustworthy, emotionally healthy, caring, understands how to balance life and work, able to communicate honestly; I want someone who is ready for a committed relationship , someone I enjoy being with - no matter what we are doing or not doing. I am looking for a relationship in which both partners support the other in bad times and rejoice in good times. I need someone who understands that relationships take time and work on both parts, and who is willing to make that continuous investment. And mutual spoiling would be nice also!

So I contacted him in mid October 2009 and he eventually got back to me, just two days before he was on a business trip to Nigeria on 28th October 2009, he told me he is a Geologist and currently working for Shell Nigeria on a contractual term for three weeks...and we started exchange emails and chatting online at the beginning of November.

As soon as I contacted him through Match.com, his profile just vanished...and later he told me, it was because he wanted to chat with me only...

When he first asked me to call him to a Nigeria number: 00234 7063503444, I immediately recognised that he is not a British from his accent, but he told me he is actually from North America, I couldn't recall the name of the place...and he has been living in the UK for the past 13 years.. His wife and mom died in a plane crash in Paris in 2004.. (Which I googled it, and it was a plane crash in Paris during that time...) and he has a 9 years-old son called Jefferey who lives with his aunt in Scotland while he is away on business...

On 10th November, I was chatting with him online and he appeared to be really stressed up and had to put him together...blahblah... and later on he told me he was robbed on his way back from work and the robbery took about £9000 pounds worth of cash and chains off him...(wow, that was a lot of money to carry, as you know, in the UK, we don't have 100 pounds bill, always 20 pounds, so 9000 pounds cash would be huge amounts to carry in a strange country like Nigeria, you just wouldn't do that...He told me he went to the police and everything...but i didn't suspect at that point...)

of course, i was quite concerned..., as I was attracted to this guy too... so I called him and then chat with him online... you know what, he wanted me to help him by sending him 500 pounds...I wanted to take some extra precaution, as he told me he has an aunt in Scotland who is looking after his son while he is away, so I asked her number, he told me her mobile number as 07024082990, but I knew it is not a mobile number in the UK, so I checked with the Ofcom and was told that 070 numbers allocated to users of Internet chat rooms who want to talk to new acquaintances without divulging their real phone numbers...) But I still didn't suspect him at that moment in time... as just in case this guy is telling the truth and he is stucked in Nigeria, I am willing to help...

Lucky, I am quite experienced in overseas contract management, so I have tried to guided him through by negotiating with Shell, his insurance company and maybe the British Embassy in Nigeria, but he kept saying that he has nothing left on him and he just need some cash...so he insisted on my transfering 500 pounds to him through the Western Union by telephone, I refused politely and promised that I will look into this in the morning...
The following is the chat that I had with him on 10th November 2009:

ME says:

R. L Walter says:
I'm in my suite now hon
Yes
ME says:
are you sure you are ok? this scares me...
R. L Walter says:
I'm not hurt baby
Just mentally distabilized
ME says:
that's all the matters, yes, it frightened me as well... i just can't believe this...
R. L Walter says:
I've been thinking about it all day
ME says:
i was actually worried, because i have read a lot of news about nigeria...
R. L Walter says:
I didn't do anything today babe
Just thinking about it
ME says:
that's ok...
R. L Walter says:
I just want to leave here right now
I don't even know what to do next
ME says:
yes...i want you to be back as well...
talk to shell and say what they would say... this is quite different from you quit the job without any acceptable reasons, this is because your life is at risk...
R. L Walter says:
Yes babe
I will talk to them in the morning
ME says:
i have some experience with contract...but of course, not commercial contract...
i just don't want you to be hurt... it is only a job, not worth it...
and please drop me an email whenever you can, so i know you are ok there...please...otherwise, i would be worried...
R. L Walter says:
That's what I wanted to do also
Thank you for your concern baby
ME says:
you don't need to thank me for that...
R. L Walter says:
I feel a lot better talking to you now
Are you working tomorrow?
ME says:
that's good... i don't want you to be stressed up by this either... this is quite scary, but let's think it this way, you are not hurt at all...that's all the matters really...
R. L Walter says:
That's true
I'm not hurt and I'm happy
ME says:
yeah, you are very lucky...and i am very grateful that nothing has happened to you too...
R. L Walter says:
I had to call hsbc today
Me too
ME says:
ok...
R. L Walter says:
So I could have some money transferred but they say to call back in the morning tomorrow
ME says:
have they taken your card as well?
talk to your contractor and they should help you with that...
R. L Walter says:
They took my wallet along with everything I had on me
ME says:
oh...yes, you told me...
R. L Walter says:
You mean with the transfer?
ME says:
no, they took your wallet...
R. L Walter says:
How can they help me baby?
ME says:
you mean the local contractor? they can help you with your bills and anything you need there..i think...
in the mean time, you need to contact your insurance company. you do have a business travel insurance, do you? worldwide coverage?
R. L Walter says:
I do but not worldwide coverage
ME says:
which countries it covers? do you mind me asking?
R. L Walter says:
Shell is working on having their insurance cover me also
Most of europe,australia and north america
ME says:
yeah, that's would be the best...and i think they should, even though you are a consultant, they should have adequate insurance to cover this...
R. L Walter says:
It covers also some part of the middle east
Yes babe
I think so also
ME says:
right, just double check with your insurance company and see if they cover africa as well...
R. L Walter says:
Just that right now, I don't have much left
ME says:
do you need me to help you with anything?
R. L Walter says:
Just have a few pounds I left back at my suite
ME says:
oh dear...
R. L Walter says:
I don't know if it'll be possible to get some money from you while I get help from my bank or shell or my insurance company
ME says:
how much you think you may need there?
R. L Walter says:
So I'll have the money back soon as I'm able to get money
About £500
ME says:
have you got your flights booked?
ok...i can also change your flight here if you need me to do that...
R. L Walter says:
I haven't baby, I was going to do that later this week
Okay baby
ME says:
but how can i transfer the money to you though?
R. L Walter says:
I think western union can do that
Do you know any western union around baby?
ME says:
but i need a receiver bank account or something like that... i have never used western union before...
i don't know...
R. L Walter says:
No, you'll need a receiver's information
ME says:
ok...
R. L Walter says:
You don't need a bank account
ME says:
ok...i don't know, i have never used them before...
R. L Walter says:
I can understand that baby
Hold baby
ME says:
ok
R. L Walter says:
Let me ask one of the hotel workers if they can help and how to go about the procedure
Is that okay
ME says:
yes
R. L Walter says:
Back babe
Are you there?
ME says:
yes
have u found out?
R. L Walter says:
Yes baby
ME says:
i can go out tomorrow and check if there is any western union around here...and ask them about the procedures...
R. L Walter says:
They say all you need is the receiver's information
And you could even send it over the phone
ME says:
what? really?
R. L Walter says:
All you need to do is call their hotline and they'll put you through
ME says:
so you need to give me your information or may be a copy of your passport?
R. L Walter says:
Wait while I get the number
ME says:
ok... and full name...
R. L Walter says:
I can't pick up the money baby, one of the hotel staff is going to have to help me
ME says:
are you sure you want me to send the money to somebody else? cause i don't want to do that...
R. L Walter says:
They say I'll need two forms of identification if I want to pick up myself
Don't worry honey, the hotel staffs can't steal the money
They know how much I need it
ME says:
yeah, but transfer money to somebody else it is very risky...
especially in Nigeria...
or, i can transfer some money to shell in Nigeria...
R. L Walter says:
That's going to take a long procedure baby and I won't be able to get the money on time
Don't worry babe
ME says:
i just don't feel comfortable to transfer the money to a local people...
R. L Walter says:
I can understand how you feel but not much choice
We have here
ME says:
i know.. i want to help, and i know you need help, but i just don't feel comfortable about transfering the money to a local people...you just being robbed by somebody there...
R. L Walter says:
What I think we can do is may be send part of it and see if he'll steal that
Call this number baby
0800833833
I doubt if he will
ME says:
yeah, but you never know...
R. L Walter says:
The management just recommended him so I don't he can
Well that's true
But we have to try first
ME says:
or if you tell me which hotel you stay in, i can call the hotel and pay the bill for you?
R. L Walter says:
I still won't have any money left on me...

ME says:

R. L Walter says:
Okay baby
ME says:

R. L Walter says:
Okay baby
Ask me
ME says:
i can't find the hotel information online... instead, a web page popped up, and it concerns me a bit... this is because we have never met yet...http://www.data-wales.co.uk/nigerian_laundering.htm
R. L Walter says:
Hold on babe
ME says:
ok..
sorry, this link...http://www.data-wales.co.uk/nigerian_chat.htm
the other one was wrong...
R. L Walter says:
This is a scam page right?
ME says:
yes... that's why it concerns me a bit...
R. L Walter says:
Oh no baby, I wouldn't do this to you
I don't live in Africa
Why would I?
ME says:
i know, but i have to take some precautions... because really, i don't know who i am dealing with...if i have ever met you before you go to Nigeria, i would have no concern what so ever...
R. L Walter says:
I can understand that baby..please give some trust to me
I never said anything about a check or 5000euros or whatsoever
ME says:
i remembered you mentioned that you have an aunt lives in Scotland? can i give her a call?
yes i know that, 500 is not a lot of money at all...
R. L Walter says:
Are you doubting me now or something?
Okay then
07024082990 (I checked this number immediately and the UK Ofcom- the Telecommunication Authority stated that 070 numbers allocated to users of Internet chat rooms who want to talk to new acquaintances without divulging their real phone numbers http://www.ofcom.org.uk/telecoms/ioi/numbers/num_070_guide )
That's her number
ME says:
no...i have no doubt, and i will help you...
R. L Walter says:
Its okay babe
ME says:
ok.. do you think it is too late to call her now? what's her name?
R. L Walter says:
just feel a bit disappointed..Mary Walter
Try calling if she'll be awake to pick up
ME says:
please, you need to understand me, if i have ever met you before you go, i would have no problem what so ever...i am sorry you feel it that way...please try to understand this...
R. L Walter says:
Okay
I can understand how you feel..ring her and let me know what she says
ME says:
please...don't be upset about this..
R. L Walter says:
I'll be here
ME says:
she is not picking up... she is in which city?
R. L Walter says:
Aberdeen
ME says:
ok, i will do the transfer tomorrow...
R. L Walter says:
Ok
How many times did you call her?
ME says:
just once...(as soon as I called the number, I have immediately recognised that the number is not in the UK)
R. L Walter says:
Ok
ME says:
is that her mobile number or landline?
R. L Walter says:
That's her mobile
She doesn't have a homephone
ME says:
ok, anyway, never mind...as long as you are fine, that's all the matters, so are you going to talk to shell and see what they are going to do?
R. L Walter says:
I will talk to them tomorrow in the morning
ME says:
so, you will let me know if you will be back to the uk soon by tomorrow?
R. L Walter says:
That'll be in the evening
ME says:
ok, that's fine...
R. L Walter says:
Okay
ME says:
i hope you don't feel bad about me checking up on things, as when i did a search on the hotel address, this webpage pop up...
R. L Walter says:
You don't expect all hotels to be on the internet do you?
ME says:
not really...
R. L Walter says:
Its a developing country and all things are not like ours
ME says:
i understand... sorry about this...
if i have ever met you before you went to Nigeria, there will be no question at all...
R. L Walter says:
Its okay...just felt a bit sad because I just told you I wouldn't do such to you
ME says:
i know...
R. L Walter says:
How am I going to ask you for 5000euros or that kind of money
ME says:
you just make me feel bad now...
R. L Walter says:
That's exactly how you mad me feel
Now
But its okay as you have given me your reason
ME says:
i am sorry, i know you need help and i want to help... just think that we have never even met yet... i know it is very unfortunate that this has happened... i do feel really bad now...
R. L Walter says:
Cheer up baby
ME says:
well... i will try
R. L Walter says:
Its okay because you made me feel better when you came on
ME says:
ok... i am ok..
R. L Walter says:
So don't worry about it
Its past now
ME says:
of course i do worry about it..
R. L Walter says:
Don't baby... I don't want to worry about it also
ME says:
i hope so...
R. L Walter says:
So I don't feel bad again
ME says:
also if you send me your insurance information, i can call them for you here and try to sort something out for you as well...
R. L Walter says:
I will do that baby...you don't have to worry your head so much about this
I already told you I'll call them in the morning
ME says:
of course i do... i want you to be ok...yes, but you will making international calls from Nigeria and i can just make local calls here... it is not a problem to me at all... i just want to help...
R. L Walter says:
Its okay babe..the call costs won't be a problem
ME says:
ok, i just want to help, that's all...
R. L Walter says:
When would be able to do the transfer?
ME says:
i don't know yet... i need to find sometime tomorrow...
R. L Walter says:
Would you be able to do that in the morning before going to work?
ME says:
sorry, i can't, i don't see there is any difference if i transfer it in the morning or afternoon. do you?
R. L Walter says:
I'll be able to get it earlier
That's what I'm saying
ME says:
i know, but you said you still have a few pounds left in the hotel...
R. L Walter says:
Can I ask something?
ME says:
yes.
R. L Walter says:
I know
When do you think you'll have an oPortunity to?
Okay
Do it whenever you want
I just need to know when so I know when to go for it
ME says:
i don't know yet... i need to check with work...
R. L Walter says:
That's all I'm asking
ME says:
ok, i will send you a text after i have done it...
R. L Walter says:
Okay
Okay then

P.S, after chatting with him, I became quite suspicious about his intention and did a search about what he told me, what does a geogolist do and found out what he said were exactly the words he copied and pasted from the following site: http://geology.com/articles/what-is-geology.shtml

The poem he wrote to me was also copied and pasted from this site: http://profiles.lovingyou.com/library/poemview.php?pid=7538

So everything has become very clear, and he is a scammer...I didn't send him anything on the following day, in stead, I sent him an email and demanded that if he does not give me an explanation, I have no alternative, but to contact the Nigerian Embassy in the UK as well as the British police...

And I have never heard from him since...

I just can't believe that out of over one million people online, I have only contacted one, and he turns out to be a scammer...

I want to let everybody know, what is happening here, but I would also like to let the real person in the picture to know that his pictures may have been fraudulently used by some online dating scammer...

Is anybody can help me on how to find this guy in the pictures?

Thanks...

Has anyone come across this guy before, he seems so real, I guess he stole some pictures off somebody online...
Does anybody knows where do the scammer normally steal pictures from?

I have come across this same guy on Match.com and he too asked me for money. He told me he was a geologist from Las Vegas, working at Shell Oil in the UK. I told him I had no money for him. Haven't heard from him since.

Well well well...seems like the hairs on the back of my neck are still in working order. The alarm bells were going off about this guy, which is what made me do a little digging. This scammer also contacted me from match.com earlier this week. We traded a few emails....here is everything he sent to me. He is using a different email address now (wtn2xhle13@gmail.com) and now he is an antiques dealer who imports things from African countries into the UK. In my next email I was going to ask him why, then, he chose to live in the US. I still might do that, just for my own entertainment. He also sent me the same pictures of the same poor guy who is being used in this nonsense.

Hello
How was your night... Thank you for sending me an email although I wasn't expecting it... Perhaps you could tell me more about you if you could and would prefer an email to my account in yahoo because I'm able to check that even on the go.... My address is wtn2xhle13 gmail com .... Hoping to hear from you soon...
I loved your profile by the way ...
Cheers
Robert Walter


Hi
It was so nice to get an email from you again... I said I wasn't expecting an email from you mainly because I thought a woman with so much to offer from the inside would have been taken... You had a beautiful profile set up and talked quite well about yourself and also a lovely picture to go with it so I have to say I was attracted to those... I'm still waiting for my happiness to come through with that special someone... may be you can understand after you read this email and get to know me more...
Well I just would like you to know more about me. I'm actually new to this online dating thing and joined with the aim of meeting someone i can spend the rest of my life loving, someone who knows what she wants in a man like me and isn't scared of expressing her feelings and herself. I'm the only son of my late mom, She passed away on a trip to Paris three years ago with my late wife. My son is 8 years old and yeah we have got a special relationship, I guess that's about me for now...I will only say that am attracted to that tiny little likeness of you AND that your words have moved me to write you. Now, a little bit more about me. None of the following is embellished, fabricated or untrue. My favorite pastime is writing and spending time with my special woman. Being gainfully self-employed I have ample time to cultivate a relationship. I was taught how to be a good and loving man by my mom. she was not educated or eloquent enough to instruct me by words, instead I learned by watching her interact with the men she interacted with for the years that I lived at home. I am made in her mold.I know no other way to treat a woman other than to show her all my love and affection. I will send you 'mushy' cards that I will write myself. I will hold your hand in mine when we are together. I will kiss you with the passion and intimacy that accompanies a kiss. I will wrap my arms around you to comfort you when you are sad and down. I will do something so foolish just to make you smile and laugh even at my own expense. I will treat you as my equal; a partner in life and love. And lastly, I will always be faithful as my mother wasto me. My integrity means more to me than any treasure on earth. I am an honorable man who would die for a friend and do whatever it took to protect my loved ones. If you are truly sincere about who you are and who you seek then I am here, standing before youmy heart on the line telling you that I can make you the happiest woman alive if we work out.You have what I seek: a woman with wisdom who can inspire me, keep up with me and love me. I will reciprocate in turn. I do not play games of the heart. They are much too painful.. Lastly, my definition of being in love is: My ability to love a woman with all my emotion and affection. to love everything about her. To have her allow me the privilege of loving her and if she loves me back? Then it is true love and it will never die. I am just an email away. I took my profile out soon as I replied your email so to be able to concentrate on you...
Well, I am currently in United Kingdom working on a project at this time but be sure I'll be back before the 25th as It'd be nice to spend some time with you... Well below are a few pictures of myself . I do Hope to Read from you soon and hope you had a splendid night ...
Warm thoughts...

R. Walter



Hello,
How's your day going? It felt really nice having to read from you finally so I'll tell you more about me again even though you haven't really send much about yourself...
I'm glad you're not into games also which means we seem to be headed in the same direction... I just don't see me meeting that particular person that'll bring me happiness in a bar or such places which is why I started the online scene last week and then your profile came up , I was thinking you were already taken like I said earlier... I was thinking of calling you, but don't want to seem too forward...
We seem to have so much in common and wished we could work out well... Not sure if I told you about my job yet, but I deal with antiques which I buy in the UK and some other places most of which are african countries and sell in the UK... Quite lucrative for me and love it because I get to travel quite often... I live a rather lonely life with just a son who happens to be staying with my aunt here in England... Not sure If I told you I was from the UK... I was born and raised in the UK so I still sort of have an accent which doesn't seem to fade out quite easily...
I also love holding hands even in public places... I love to spend time with my loved ones and sometimes love the couch potatoes scenario also... I don't get much time to go on vacations although I really don't want any because a vacation alone is more like a mental torture for me so I try to keep myself busy with work ....
I have to get going now because I had to take sometime during my lunch to send you this email just so you know I'm thinking of you ... I wanted to include a poem in this email but not sure if you liked poems so asking if you do...
I was thinking we could make it more fun by chatting on the instant messenger which makes it quite interactive and we get to know each other better... I sent you an invite but don't know if you got it...
Hope your day is going great....
Warm Thoughts...

This guy gets around... my story is the same...ladies beware... please. I'm posting the first few emais that Rob and I shared... our relationship lasted three weeks and unfortunatey for me, Rob got $3500.00 from me. I take it as a life lesson. I have notified all the authorities that I could think of. Please - ladies... be careful, this guy is good with the words. I fell for him, hook line and sinker. And here' the kicker... our realtonship, was during all of these realtionships... he even told me that on Dec. 4, when he didn't get off the plane it was because he was in a car accident and his son was in a coma and waiting surgery in NHS in London. I called NHS in London trying to confirm just trying to believe him...

Here's my email...

The first one was dated 11-8-09 - we met on Match.com on 11-7-09 with a 'wink' with each other... I live in Las Vegas NV.. and here is my story... and yes, I was hurt... but now, I'm just mad and yes at myself too. But as I see it, I was a victim... and Robert needs to found and stopped.... Please, help....


[Hi XXXXX,
I am so glad to hear from you again and also for making it quite extensive...I can't really explain to you how happy I am right now knowing that I am actually in contact with you... I never thought that would be possible and you'll most likely be taken. I don't want to seem quite out of date but I have not been on any date in about four years...

Well I just would like you to know more about me. I'm actually new to this online dating thing and joined with the aim of meeting someone i can spend the rest of my life loving, someone who knows what she wants in a man like me and isn't scared of expressing her feelings and herself. I'm the only son of my late mom, She passed away on a trip to Paris four years ago with my late wife. My son (Jefferey) is 9 years old and we are really close, I guess that's about me for now.I am trying to impress you with a heartfelt tome extolling my romantic and affectionate side would be way too easy and as transparent as glass. So, I won't do it. Instead, I will only say that I'm attracted to that tiny little likeness of you AND that your words have moved me to write you. I moved to Las Vegas in 2004 from the UK which is where I grew up and my Aunt still lives in the UK....
Now, a little bit more about me. None of the following is embellished, fabricated or untrue. My favorite pastime is writing and spending time with my special woman. Being gainfully self-employed I have ample time to cultivate a relationship. I was taught how to be a good and loving man by my mom. she was not educated or eloquent enough to instruct me by words, instead I learned by watching her interact with the men she interacted with for the years that I lived at home. I am made in her mold.I know no other way to treat a woman other than to show her all my love and affection. I will send you 'mushy' cards that I will write myself. I will hold your hand in mine when we are together. I will kiss you with the passion and intimacy that accompanies a kiss. I will wrap my arms around you to comfort you when you are sad and down. I will do something so foolish just to make you smile and laugh even at my own expense. I will treat you as my equal; a partner in life and love. And lastly, I will always be faithful as my mother wast to me. My integrity means more to me than any treasure on earth. I am an honorable man who would die for a friend and do whatever it took to protect my loved ones. If you are truly sincere about who you are and who you seek then I am here, standing before you my heart on the line telling you that I can make you the happiest woman alive if we work out.You have what I seek: a woman with wisdom who can inspire me, keep up with me and love me. I will reciprocate in turn. I do not play games of the heart. They are much too painful.. Lastly, my definition of being in love is: My ability to love a woman with all my emotion and affection. to love everything about her. To have her allow me the privilege of loving her and if she loves me back? Then it is true love and it will never die.... My favourite drink still remains water as it is quite natural although red wine once a while is also a winner.... As for food, I love the thai dishes ... they are so wonderful and healthy... I always try to stay fit and healthy. I like the inside man with clive owen and also 'The Manchurian candidate' with Denzel Washington...not much of the series person... I also have a parrot and she's really cute...
Well, I am traveling to the UK for a contract I got with Shell in the UK on Tuesday morning and wished I could meet you first so we could hang out a bit but I guess it is a late call...I had a busy weekend as I am preparing for my trip like I told you earlier and so might not have enough time to come on here before traveling ( I am a geologist and working with Shell presently on contractual terms) but be sure to get an email from me once the plane lands and I'm all settled... Well below are a few pictures of myself . I do Hope to read from you soon and perhaps a few more pictures... Hope you had a splendid weekend and having a good day,..Till then,
Hugs and warm thoughts...

Rob...
My Pursuit of happYness...]

The next email from him came on 11-14-09 - after he arrived in London on his business trip... looking back on it now... he's just scamming other woman...

Hi XXXXXXXX,
Thank you for the wonderful email and also for the compliments(do i write truly that well?)...I am so sorry it took this long to reply your emails...your email was quite an informative one. ...I arrived in London safely but being really busy having to shuffle between work, settling down and also getting my own internet connection... I was unable to get an internet connection until yesterday and just happened to read your email right now... I had quite a busy day yesterday so unable to come on here to send you an email... I am excited that we are in contact already and I am open to this journey,.... You told me a little about yourself and thought may be knowing you more would take us a little step further... I am going to be here for about 3 weeks and should be back to Vegas... Many processes such as landslides, earthquakes, floods and volcanic eruptions can be hazardous to people. Geologists work to understand these processes well enough to avoid building important structures where they might be damaged. If geologists can prepare maps of areas that have flooded in the past they can prepare maps of areas that might be flooded in the future so as to be able to avoid building oil wells and other infrastructures in these areas and also how to reduce damage that may occur if already built.... so does that help a bit?
I see you love to travel just like me ... I think San Francisco is wonderful as well as Miami Floriday....If I may ask some more questions from and get to know you better as we go further... What are your likes and dislikes, sport? My son loves soccer as much as I do and so we're both addicts of the game... He's name is Jefferey but I call him J for short... How long have you been on Match.com really and what has your experience been?
I feel a vacuum in my heart right now and this vacuum really gets me down... I need the healing power of love in my life right now and can't say how optimistic I am about us but I'll keep my fingers crossed for the moment while we see where this goes... I like the simple things in life and don't want you thinking I am a bit complex which is why I have not found anyone at the moment but this is because I believe beauty comes from the inside and so don't bother wasting my time on people that are not my match... I got the internet connection working now and just wanted you to know I read your email and also wanted you to know I did not forget you for a second.....
I was going to ask what really happened to your previous relationship and how long it lasted... I was unable to get my phone working yesterday but I did that today so I could hear what you sound like but I know I won't be disappointed... I got your number and would ring you soon as I am able to or perhaps you can call me as I have included my number in along with this email....
I hope this email does not get too long for you but I thought I should send you something to keep me in your thoughts as You are in mine all the time...
Hope you had a good night rest...
Thinking about you...
Rob

We started IM'ing each other as well, those were quite extensive... I saved those as well and turned those as well as the emails over to the authorties. IP addresses can be traced is what was told by authorities.

11-14-09

Hello XXXXXX
Before I say anything at all, I have to say that was a lovely song for your voice mail.... You are not alone? I loved the song so much and called twice just to hear more often ...Thanks for your email ,compliments and also pictures... they sure made me smile.. I am not originally from England and will tell you more later in the email... Your email certainly was well written and so touching , I don't doubt your thoughts for a second.. I was so happy when I got back and found that you had replied me already which means you're also thinking about me... This makes us a whole lot better as we are thinking about each other.... I am sorry about how your previous relationship went but happiness is really important and if that was not in your marriage anymore, then there was no reason to stay in it and guess you made the right decision... Not much to say about my life, I got married at 30, we had Jeff when I was 35 (long wait?). we were a happy couple with everything going on well until the incident which has left me looking for love once again...
I tried calling you today but guess I missed you on there... perhaps you could tell me about what your plans were for today .also, I wanted to know what time was perfect to call you daily and also when do you get offwork? .... I also think the instant messaging would a whole lot more interactive .... I have a yahoo messenger id which is still the same email so you could add me and we could continue also from there but think you'll need yahoo or msn account .... I need to get some rest now and so this email might just be about ending...able to send you this email and to let you know that I'm thinking of you and there is nothing in this world right now that can hold us back from becoming what we want to be.... only if we are not the perfect fits and from my instincts, also your words , I doubt that but lets just continue this way for now and see where this leads to...
I did not tell you much about family,We moved to the UK in the early 70's but I am originally from Sweden... I am the only child of my parents and they both passed away..... I have an aunt who never got married and is 70 this year... She says she still regrets not getting married . Jeff stays with her in sweden. from time to time due to the nature of my job...... She has been a major blessing to me as she helped me make it through very difficult times... She happens to be the only family I have left and I am really close to her... how about you , siblings? have you lived here all your life? any major person who has made so much impacts in your life?
My day today wasn't as busy as yesterday .. I have to get a bath now as I'm really tired and wished I could just go on with writing the email....
Hope your day was wonderful... I wish your day filled with Joy and Gladness all through...

The beginning of happYness ...
Rob

Morning Darling...
How did your night go? I can't explain how I feel right now... You have really touched me with everything you did tonight... It was wonderful chatting with you tonight because you brought to life and confirmed every word you wrote to me in the emails... I hope we can be together for ever....

Thank you, XXXXXXX. What more can a man say to the woman who opened her heart to him, allowing him to feel the warmth of her love across the great distance that separates them? You truly have no idea what I feel for you in this short time...

I try to put this feeling into words, but fail miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence.

I have no other words to describe the way you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close. I believe that Ronald Regan said it best to Nancy in a letter, telling her only that, 'I more than love you'. Their love was a strong love, surviving everything, even death. I believe that even after his passing, Nancy felt Ronald's love for her raining down upon her. That is why she has always seemed at peace after the death of such a truly loving husband. That is the love that I feel for you.

Forever Yours,

R. Walter

Morning sweetie,
Hey, Baby, I know we haven't been dating that long, but I want you to know that I love you from the bottom of my heart. From the moment I first met you, I knew that I wanted you in my life, whether as a friend of something a little more. Baby, I prayed for a long time to find someone like you. Someone willing to fight for me, someone to make me smile and someone who I know truly loves me. You're in my thoughts, my dreams, and every breath I take.
I know I can't give you the whole world, but I can promise you I will always love you. My heart is yours, and even though I know I’ll make mistakes, I will never break your heart. I’ll be right beside you as we chase our dreams together, and you will never have to wonder if I still care. I think about you all day long and when I'm chatting with you, my mind is consumed with thoughts of being close to you again. When we're chatting or on the phone, I feel like everything in the world is right, and I know I don't have to ask God for anything because as long I have you in my life I have everything I could ever want. All I want to do is spend the rest of my life making you as happy as you have made me
I know truly that this is love and I have found true happYness in you... I feel like I can tell you anything. I may not always want to, but you know things about me that even my best friend doesn't know. You're always there to pick me up when I fall, and to dry my tears. I have to hurry to work now and we'll chat later soon as I get off work.... Thank you, Baby. I love you.

Love always and forever,
Robert Jonathan Walter..

11-19-09 - it was the email just prior that Rob told me of the mugging. Warning ladies, this is the way he works - it's 'I was walking back from the site to the hotel and was mugged... they took everything and I froze my account... and I don't have access to any funds... ' I belived it... he sent me his bank info here in Vegas even...
Here's the email for me to help...

Good morning sweetie,
Thank you for the email and also the moral support... You're one in a million. Hope you had a good night rest... I love you so much and I know that eternity (2 weeks and 3days) would soon pass by without us even knowing... I want you to know that I'll be there when you need a shoulder to lean also because I love you so much and also you've been there for me when I needed the most...
You don't need an account to make a western union money transfer to me darling... All you need is the receiver's name and also the address.. You'll be given a form to fill when you get to the outlet that you'll fill and give back to them ... You'll be given a copy of the form when you're done... You need to keep that copy because I'll need some information from that form to enable be able to pick up the money... You also be asked to choose a test question and answer so I'll need to know that also..
I hope you woke up better than yesterday night because I don't want you crying and that was the reason I did not tell you what really happened..
I'm on my lunch now and stopped by to send you an email from a public computer... Hope you have a good day darling...
Thinking of you sweetie and can't wait to get back... Love you forever

The IM's were long and to make a long story short, I thought I was smart... book smart yes, (I work in law which makes this even worse)... but not street smart.

I'd be happy to help anyone out there and share my story in further detail... I have so much more information to share. Like I said, a relationship that lasted a month (I have over 75 emails and 50 IM's).

The stories are the same... The differences are:
Middle name: Lucas to Jonathon
Lived in Las Vegas, NV went to London for a contract job with Shell for three weeks
Mom and wife (Leslie and Susan) died in Paris in car accident.
Aunt lives in Sweeden not Scotland or England.
Moved to Las Vegas, NV four years ago.
Geologist not antique dealer...
email is Robert Walter [rbrtwltr13@yahoo.com] and now claims to have a gmail account... thank you!!!!

I'm posting the pics he sent me as well... he gave me a pic of his son and he and his aunt... these I haven't seen on this site.

Here is the pic I have of Robert Walter and his Aunt supposedly in Sweeden - according to the email I received, it was taken in the first week in Nov... probably a lie...

Poor guy in the pic though... probably doesn't know his picture is being used...

OMG -- I am the anonymous that posted a comment on 12/8/09. I obviously was talking to this guy at the same time as Wargoddess. I too, work in law in Las Vegas and met him on Match. Unlike you however, and fortunately for me, I didn't give him any money. I was still heartbrokern though. WHAT A LOW LIFE!!! He needs to be caught!!

I met him on Match too! But he said he now lives or is moving to CO, and he is a geologist in London working for a oil company. I haven't heard from him in a while though. A couple of emails. The first one was really long, but it reads just like the main post. Change out a few minor details though. He said he has a son Jeffrey. WOW. I wonder if he will email me back. I am toying with the idea not to let him know I KNOW! Haha. See if I can scam him!! We even planned a date for the first week in February.

[ I am toying with the idea not to let him know I KNOW! Haha ]

Hi I noticed Your comment.
Please stop all contact with the scammer now.

You have no Idea as to what Your doing.

Scammers continue to collect Your information with each contact made.

Even if You end it now You will not be rid of Him.
He has many email addresses to get around any block You try.

Scammers even when told off keep trying to scam You as they believe
any kind of contact You allow them is permission to keep contacting You.
They never do stop trying to scam You.

Be aware if You actually try to scam the scammer You will be busted.

Sound unfair ?

Its the Truth.

You do not live in a Country that allows scamming to go on like
where He is.
If You ask for anything at all You can be busted for scamming.

Never post your email address on this site.
Never tell a scammer about this site.
Never confront a scammer with the truth.

You need to get off line until such time as You have taken
the time to learn about scams and scammers.

Stop playing with Fire You will get burned.

all the scammers in the world you would get what all what comes to you. innocent men and women dont deserve this kind of treatment especially if they are looking for love. all scammers have no heart of gold they just have a heart of evil.

He even sent me a song Dreaming of You from Selena. How do they get their material? He old me he loved me so much for everything that I am. He said that the reason he was alone for all those years was because he was waiting for me to see the love in his eyes. I believed him. How can I be so stupid. My manager at work told me to be careful too. I wish I listened to her. He still hasn't 'come home' from London. He is due back to CO the first week in FEB. After reading these posts, I keep hoping that this isn't the man I fell in love with. But the pictures are the same. And I know in my heart it is. I would like to trick him up though. He can't be that good. He won't know I'm on to him. I know, break off all communications with him now. But it's so hard. I love him. I had an event happen to me at 16 and this is just bringing it back to me all over again. I do believe I am to live alone the rest of my life.
