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:
hi baby, are you back?
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...

Wow, tis is like reading about my life for the past 2 weeks. Except name is ill Walter. He contacted me from Match.com. Same deal, sweet endearments, I love yo, etc after 2 days, then he had to go to Malaysia to work on pipeline (I checked - there is one). Then he couldn't get his cheque, his spelling, cashed and needed my help.
That is when I really started to question. Real quick with answers. I found his IP address as Sunnyvale, CA and not where he claimed on Match.com. I asked him how the weather was in Sunnyvale, CA and he asked me to leave him alone. Can't something be done about this guy? He seems to use Match.com alot. Contacted them to report him and will do so again.

Match.com asked me for copies of emails and chats. Sent to them but will probably not hear results as they are bound by some kind of privacy laws. Too bad, these guys need to be outed. I'm almost 100% sure the guy's picture was pirated from somewhere else.
Add Bill Walter to list of scammers and is probably really Robert Walter, if that is really his name.

Here's the information that I've gathered over the past two or so months... also goes by the name as Claude Mason - (now he told me that this was his real name - lives in London - East End -) the reason why the IP address is never the same... he uses the website - IPsupport.com from the UK.. which for s much per month, you can direct your IP address to another location.

Email addresses I have: ntthy21@gmail.com - started using the name Nathianial Cummings - but I see that one of our posters have him also as Bill Walter.
rbrtwltr13@yahoo.com (this one is no longer in use)
rbrtwltr13@gmail.com (tis one too is no longer in use) Both are Robert Walter's...
wtn2xhle@gmail.com
l.walter68@live.uk.co - leslie walter
l.walter6810@yahoo.com - Leslie Walter

mjclaude3o@yahoo.com - Claude Mason - now things I know about Claude - he loves Manchester United... His best mate that he often told me about is Justin. Match.com is where he works out of most of the time but has also been to JDate, Hi5. I too, have contacted Match - but other than shutting down his user name, there isn't much help... he does keep his passwords as all the same... so accessing his emails and his accounts are fairly easy. (Match accounts and you can notify match that way as well). He also has a Liberty Reserve account in Nigeria (Interpol knows all this already).


Address in London:
25 Maryland Point
Strafford, London England
E151PF

I have phone numbers - but I'm sure they don't work anyfurther, but one time, I was able to get his Blackberry phone number (he never gave this out)... but I was able to obtain it.

Here are the pictures of Claude Mason - remember - Robert contacted me first - then we had our 'falling out' and after some time (a month or so) I received a text messge from Robert - 'we should talk and clear the air'. I thought ok, maybe let me see what he says... eventually he trusted me with a password and then in Feb he called me and said that he was arrested for a bank scam. I checked all the email accounts I could - and found out he was lying. We haven't spoken since - Feb. 24. Since then, I've been trying to locate him again and stopping his progress. (Slow go) and updating Interpol, FBI and local authorities with all the information I have.

If we could just stop one...It's one less on the street.

I posted the last post - but forgot some information -

Claude's/ Robert's mom and wife - not dead... mom lives in England as well his wife... they are divorced and share custody of their son. Claude's relationship with his mom is strained at best because she doesn't approve of what he does (shocker)... Claude told me that he does want to go to school for computer programming and has an interest in computers - (which is scary - a scammer who has even more knowledge of computers...)

The reason I stopped communicating with him was his scam that I saw - he said he was arrested for bank fraud and was sitting in the Newham Police Dept and asked me to send him bail money - but not to the jail as there was no record of his arrest - and to further question his 'honesty' - he 'bribed' a guard to let him use his cell phone to ring me up twice a day at certain times. No email communication - just a phone call begging me to send money - and I was trying to get more information from him to give to the authorities... which worked for a while. Eventually though time had run out and he stopped talking to me. (Money wasn't sent - ironically, my bank account was hacked into - according to the bank - several hundred accounts were hacked into that same day)...

I will post more email addresses as I come across them...

Any number that he gives you to call on - remember - it's a number that is 'follow me anywhere' in the UK... in other words, he can be anywhere as well. Most likely, he is still in the flat on Maryland Point on the Eastend.

I think he is on match again. But he doesn't seem too smart as he contacted me again as seeker2love11 from London England. The same kind of email - how beautiful I was, how he wanted to marry me, so on and so on. Again, I thought it suspicious (sorry about the spelling) so I decided to try to string him along and replied. He tried to give me his yahoo email but match changed it to hs match email. I signed my name and no response from him. His profile is no longer onavailable. Different pic too. Name of Terry.

Sorry, he was stick2love11. Here's an example of his work:
Hello,
How are you?Never knew there were some beautifuls out here.I am new to this dating site and i was just reading through your profile and i find it very interesting.I love what i saw.pretty, words will not be enough to explain how much beauty i found in you, but for the way i can explain it, i will tell you that your beauty is enough to make any man go crazy.i will want you for a good, caring, communicative, Committed Friendship and Intimate relationship, Marriage and others as it will be ok for you..You have all i need in a woman.You have got really sexy eyes and a great smile.You have such a flame in your eyes. If I ever saw an angel, it was in your eyes..Only God's creations can compare to the beauty that I see in you..The greatest gift to my eyesight is having my eyes set on you. i saw in you,a woman that every man would really want to be with,a woman that is ready to love a man for who he is and a woman who really needs a very honest man in his life.Have a quick look at my profile to see if anything piques your interest.A little about me, I'm single dad 0f one,I reside in UK,quite some miles from where you are but willing to give it a try since travelling is one of my hobbies. i am 47yrs of age,i have once been married, unfortunately not been favoured by love. I am looking for a relationship based on honesty and i think i am very much interested in getting to know you more better . i think we could build a more comprehensive intimacy.If you dont mind,this is my personal e mail address stick2love11@talkmatch.com,you can chat with me on here as well. so all you need to do is add me if you run a yahoo messenger cos it is the easiest way to keep a communication going.it would be so lovely to hear back from you.I hope you have a beautiful and lovely day and also i hope this e mail meets you in good health.

i found out that stick2love11, Terry and true1121, Morris, also known as simple.smile86@yahoo.com are also names he uses. Both contacted me again in match.com and removed their profiles when I responded. Same MO. I got simle to email me and did research and emails come from same place as bill walter. BEWARE. Probably stolen pictures too. Will call match again.

Did some research. Robert Walter, Bill Walter, and simple.smile86 all have the same IP address which is Sunnyvale, CA. This is their host site. This is the same guy or a scammer ring.

Sunnyvale, CA. is the Home address for Yahoo. You traced the wrong IP

anonymous from United States  
Yes, it is one of yahoo's host sites. However, all these guys claim they are in FL which would not trace back to CA, I am in FL and my IP traces back to FL. Match.com has removed their profiles as they are all in the sane IP address. In fact, sunshine 1099 who tried to scam me for $ had stolen the name from a woman. Match.com is actively checking IP addresses since I first reported sunshine. They say they closed their accounts themselves because they found the one love for them when in fact match cancelled their accounts. The IPs I traced came directly from their emails. robert walter, bill walter, terry, morris, claude mason are either the same guy or a group of scammers. In fact Morris, who claims he is in FL amd IP goes to CA wants me to call him at a # that is in the UK.

I'd like to help anyone who is interested in my help at all... I have tons of information on Claude. The IP addresses that he uses is from a site called IPsupport.com. The company will provide several IP addresses to the consumer no matter where they are and have it appear to be somewhere else... for example - Claude (who lives in Newham/Strafford England) will sign up for a month service and have the IP address instead of showing up in the UK show up in FL... he had a preferace to Panama City... all his email accounts for Yahoo (when you sign up they ask what city, he would put Panama City)... so the IP addresses to IPsupport.com went to FL... to give the illusion that he was here in the US. IP addresses can be manipulated. I am more than wanting to give help - like I posted before, I have given all my information to Interpol, FBI and my local police, but little can be done, because 'I williningly gave the money' as my local police told me - which just frustrated me to the point of no return.

I have another picture of Claude I'd like to share with everyone I found in my files.. every bit helps as they say.

I'm still on the hunt for email addresses - the last one that I had was ntthy21@gmail.com - Nathanial Cummings. It's all the same person. He didn't use this name long though - probably because it cost to much to get all the documents for a name change. LOL... Seriously - he wil stick with the last name of Waters... as he told me once, it's easier to change the first name and keep the last.

Phone numbers I have:
+447024015181
+447024091863
+447024013631
+447063503444 BB
+446613789007

I hope this helps someone... and if I can be of any more help.. I check this page out about once week... I'm very happy to see Match taking an active roll now. I wish Mate1 and JDate and Hi5 would as well... but Match is a huge market. He has accounts all over... sigh...

Hello all:
I wanted to give all of you an update on the latest of Claude/Robert/Morris... first Morris is Claude Mason and Robert Walters. To bring everyone up to speed... Robert Walters (or any name with Walters is Claude Mason. I don't know Morris' last name - Morris was after me.. but through the hard and Painful work of you... I know Morris is Claude. Brief history of me and Claude: I met Rob in Nov - was scammed (yes painfully) and fell in love. (painfully) Ended in Dec. (My story is on pg.1). Rob recontacted me in Dec. to 'clear the air' and I said ok... but told him no more money - I knew I was scammed. He said he loved me and I turned his life around - he told me things about scam artists.. how they do it... etc. (What he didn't know, was I was gleaming info to turn it all in to Interpol... at the right time. I gained his trust. We 'dated' for 3 months - at no time did he ever ask me for money. When he told me he started a Match site, I wrote Match anonymously and turned him in... trust me, I did what I could. I sabtouged him each step - he came up with new scams that he would tell me, and I would sabtoge those.. and report them to Interpol and FBI. My files are thick. 3 month is an eternity. Then the day came.. he asked me for money - he said he was arrested for a bank fraud (my bank no less) and I said no. Three weeks he was in jail and we called on specific times. But since then, we haven't spoken once. That's the brief history. So... have tons of information on this idiot... and use that term wisely. He's a creature of habit... I know his personal life.

So... yesterday, I emaied Morris.. brief email, made up an email and new identity on Yahoo - Jenny from UK. I figured, I knew enough about the UK to sound from there and he said once, when he picks a location, all he does is Google the city and pick parks, places of interest, to talk to the ladies... so two can play at that game. Anyway. Email went out.. few hours later I get this:

Hello my dear Jenny
How are doing today?..thank you so much for giving me more of your details,i appreciate what i read on your email.i think it we be nice to chat with you online here is my personal IM simple.smile86 and my email address is simple.smile86@yahoo.com.i we be very glad to exchange my stories to you.hope to hear from you soon.have a wonderful day.
Morris


We IM that day... here's where it got interesting... he accused me of being Nigerian.. LOL I asked him why he asked that... he said because he was scammed (isn't that funny). I told him I was offended and I won't continued being questioned in this manner - that I was just hoping to just to get to know him better and instead, I'm being accused, called him a bloody yank. Told him that I expected an apology. He said he was truly sorry. LOL. I believed that (sarcasm). He said can we start over. I said ok. I asked him what he likd to do for fun, what sports he liked and again no response to my questions, instead he asked where I was from again.. and again I said I already answered that and reasked my questions. Nothing. (Remember, scammers will puposely write slow so they don't give out to much informaton - their answers will be no more that 5 - 8 words at the most! I buzzed him and asked if he was there. He said yes and then asked me for my phone number. I told him I don't give it out, but said why don't you give meyoours. (during this time, I'm sure he was checking my IP address or my 'Match account' - well Jenny's which I created... but didn't put any information to it. IPsupport.com is a site that I have discussed prior. The next IM thread is priceless:
Me: Morris- you there:
Him: Yes, Will you send me a pic?
Me I have the one posted on Match.
Him: It's not showing up yet.
Me. Oh, it's still under review. It's the only one I have that doesn't have any of me mates with me.
Him: Why is that important?
Me: Because I don't feel it's appropriate to send pics of me mates on a site - people could use their likeness. You should know that being scammed yourself.
Him: Ohh, yes, I see.
Me. Oh, one more thing.
Him: Yes?
Claude, REALLY... Bonnie, Jenny... Man United Giggs, 11 You didn't see the connection... LOL I'm not mad, just want to talk. I found you.

(By the time it took him to read that sentence, immediately he logged off. About an hour later, he logged in again, and I said:

Hello Claude... logged off again.

He's been in stealth mode ever since.

I found another pic of Claude in my files... here it is. Thank you for the information on his email - and thank you for letting me share my story.
I'm contacting Interpol today with the information... and Match as well as the FBI... let's hope every little bit leads to the final nail on this jerk. I'd be hapy to give the nail the final whack.
D :)
