Name: Marino Ampelio


Italy? London? Nigeria? Vancouver? His phone number that he called me from 234-706-498-3952. Don't know where that number comes from. I couldn't figure out the international code for this number. Here is another number 01-144-701-113-8789 - supposedly London, England

Other Comments:
Marino Ampelio preys on women through on line dating sites! Beware ladies - he is very, very good! he even uses his 'daughter' in his scams - I of course was an idiot and fell for it all.... I had NO IDEA this even went on! He pretends to be a fashion designer and even has a fake page set up at i-italy. Its all fake! I will get him investigated. But, it won't do much I am sure because it is all a big scam. Then he gets his 'daughter' to call you and gush over getting new 'family' . These dating sites need to WARN PEOPLE THAT THIS HAPPENS! It should be on their first page! Or, after joining, they should send a message outlining how people can scam through on line dating! I seriously had never heard of this before!

Marino Ampelio also tried to scam me! many of us do you think are really out there? Here is the phone number that he called me from: 440-734-7732 He told me that he had his main store in London, but was opening a new one in Medina, if there were a calling for such a store in Medina!? I could tell that I made him very irritated when I asked him so many questions! He is truly a scam artist, so please don't be fooled by him. He contacted me through

When Agent 86 Maxwell Smart mentioned about the emails that you will recieve, please see the latest one that I have received. I get about 15/20 of these every week. This is of course the biggest load of balony I have ever heard or seen, however; there are some people that would believe that they are actually going to get their money back!! If you receive anything like this please do not believe it and delete it. Do not reply as they then know that you are responding and have a 'hook' into you.

Good Luck with your demoralisation of the scammer!

Hi I Hope You cancelled that Credit Card ?
I also Hope You have broke off all communication also.

Please never post pictures of Minors here they are forbidden.

You need to learn about scams and scammers now because You
are still in great danger.

The man in the photo is not who scammed You.
Those are stolen and I am willing to bet this scam is actually
coming out of Nigeria.

Please give Us the email address and header information if possible.
Plus phone number and address.

Never post Your email address or any other personal information
on this site.
Never tell the scammer about this site.
Never confront the scammer with the truth.
All You will get will be more lies.

I am certain He will never show up because of a Emergency that
will require Your money.

Never send or give money to any man on the Internet Ever !!!!!!!!!

Kind Regards Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'// <><

Be informed there is only one way any part of any posting can be removed
from this site as Scammers try to have things removed all the time.

Wanwan is correct in warning You may be a scammer.

If You are the person who made a posting on this thread and
have a legitimate reason for removing anything at all.

Requesting such removal by making a posting will do You no good ever.

You must contact the Site Administrator Yourself.

Tell Him Your story and why You want something removed.
Tell Him the name of this thread and date and time and page.
He can determine in fact if You made the posting only then will
He remove anything.

Do not keep posting messages asking for something to be removed.
If You do I will remove those postings for You.
I have told You exactly what You must do no one will do it for You.

Something is wrong with your messages.
There's something strange about your postings here.
You suddenly said '' This man is not a scammer ''.
Put proofs he is not a scammer.
Why you suddenly has changed your opinions?

Plus you put your e-mail address and ask people to contact you .
Scammers very often do that action.
Luring? Recruiting?
Like Marple said,I also suspect you now.

I ask people not to contact this person JG in USA.
And JG in USA,I request you to email the admin again ,
plus ask you to prove he is not a scammer.

Something is wrong with you.
You must prove you are good poster here.

I Agree with Wanwan and Miss Marple now that You have shown
that You already tried and admittedly said You gave the wrong
information before.

No one in their right mind would do that.

Like they say if it walks like a Duck and
Quacks like a Duck Most likely its a Duck.

Your actions look like a Scammer Your Answers are just as stupid
as a scammer. You then must be a scammer.

Don't bother asking for help again as You clearly are a bold faced liar.

Crawl back under the rock You came from and Go the Fuck Away.
