We met thru Adventist Match.com dating site Aug '09, & began corresponding off of the dating site within 2 wks. Corresponded 4+ month 2 to 3 x/day via email, yahoo IM chat, & phone. He claims to be born in Young Harris GA; lived & raised by grandma in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Has a Spanish-french sort of accent. Very very gentlemanly, polite, charming. 6’2”, 180 lbs. Both parents, + only sister deceased in auto accident, mother of his son ran off with his uncle while he was recouping/coma after the auto accident about a year-1/2 ago. Joined the Adventist Church within last year.
In mid-Sept., he went to UK to sell his deceased fathers textile mill. Once business was sold, money was transferred to his acct causing his bank accts to be frozen by u.s. govt. This also froze his debit card/Cr. card. He told me that the bank put his acct in 'Dormant' to protect it. He didn't plan ahead to set money aside for flight return home; nor have flight return money. He claimed to have gone to the American Embassy in UK; but they just kept delaying him, and not helping him as they had such an overload of cases to assist. After his 2nd attempt to book flight tkts, he couldn't get his u.s. passport returned to him by the motel manager until he pays all motel expenses. Supposedly, after he had to return back to the motel when his 1st flight booking fell through, the motel manager [Mr. Mark Cole, & Douglas Leech] was holding both his & his sons passports as colladeral.
In November, he'd found a u.s. business [MultiNational Inc.] to help finance him, & a ck was sent to me by FedEx for him and his expenses [I was to send him the money once the ck cleared for $13,500.49]. The ck never cleared. I even went to the bank listed on the ck to find out what was the delay, tried to contact the agent Antonio Welsh. Luckily, my bank acct didn't get affected. [praise God!]
But in late Dec. '09, all the information he was giving me, started to NOT ADD UP! Did more detective work!! I learned from a friend how to check email IP addresses. Discovered his were not coming from UK, but from Nigeria! I questioned his about this, and noted later that he’d somehow managed to have this altered to come from Boston, MA, and later IP address would show Kansas City, MO [his reasoning for the Nigeria IP address was that someone had hacked into his internet account]. I had even checked ON HERE if he’d ever been reported by anyone else. I traced down the MultiNational company [finally got through to a person], found out the ck had been fraudulent [agent, bank, signature, ck# sequence]. The motel kept stumping me as I could not find it through Int'l mapquest, Int'l google search, nor the UK postal service. He claimed it was just a small insignificant motel & not on the internet. But finally mail that I'd sent to him by 'Priority Mail' for his sons birthday was returned to me stating that it was undeliverable as NO SUCH ADDRESS.
I finally contacted the American Embassy in UK myself, and they had no record of him requesting help. IT WAS THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN UK that did a 2nd research on his & sons passports for me and regretfully informed me both by phone & email that BOTH passports were NOT legit [several errors & that American Passports NEVER begin with 0000].
Yep, I sent him money 2 different times for return flight [took out a loan to help him]. How much total? I'm embarrassed to say. Enough to teach me a lesson not to be forgotten soon. No, I didn't do this blindly! He even gave me his SS#253-17-6132. Yes, I'd had his & his sons passports & SS# checked, and from the source used, they appeared to be okay, so I was willing to help him [yes we'd expressed feelings of reciprocated love despite not having met yet]. I even had our church elder helping me to locate an attorney who would assist him to act as 'Power of Atty' to access some of his bank acct funds to cover needed expenses for return flight, motel expenses accumulated, etc... AND... we even prayed together... So don't be surprised and wonder how could I have been so dumb. I wasn't dumb, just scammed ...tricked... into believing. I have since reported all his information to the FBI authorities. Broken heart :-( oh yes; but that will mend in time. Jesus is my HEALER. Wiser and much more cautious now. For anyone who reads this, be careful, just be very careful. I don’t hate him either… as he’ll be answering to a HIGHER JUDGE soon [God]… My life is to pick up the pieces and go on from here and learn from this.

Hello, I am so thankful that my information posted on here was helpful to those who have been contacted by him. I pray that you don't get caught up in his scam as I did. I'm still struggling financially to pay back what I borrowed for him. [my lesson... some lessons are tougher than others, yes?] My youngest son was affected the most out of it when all the puzzle pieces weren't lining up finally; as he had even chatted with him once on the phone. Larry Moore never allowed us to chat with his son; always some excuse of napping or sleeping, or outside. He has even called here again in the last month or so, & sent me email w/ a phone number for me to call him back. The way to report him to the FBI, you just need to go to the American Embassy online website, & on there will be a website to click for reporting a scam. Then you need to follow it up with a police report especially if any money was involved. You can also report it to the Adventistmatch.com website too. I did [lot of good that did though]. Christian Singles Dating does a much more thorough job of weeding out scammers than many of the other dating sites. And always just ask lots of questions of anyone: get a referral from their pastor or a church elder; & be sure to verify that the church is legit. Do background checks on these guys. And never ever send any money!! God bless and take care...

Im not sure how this person who claims to be Larry M. Moore got wind of being reported on here. Since I'd reported him on here, I have not indicated to him that I reported him. I'd been distancing myself from his emails that asked why I was avoiding him. I'd use the excuse that work, my kids, classes, and year end taxes, etc etc has been pretty time consuming,
But on 4-22-10 I recieved an email from him that he found out he was reported. On 4-28-10, He sent another e-mail which was vulgar. I have since reported his email to Yahoo, and blocked him from being able to email me. He now knows the real reason for my avoidances of him these last few months.
I have since gone back through the emails from him while we were conversing to track the IP addresses of each, and noted that he has managed to change his IP location several times [hacking is what my son calls it]. While we were in a 'serious relationship' per-say, a friend of mine showed me how to check the IP address of emails for safety. When I had checked his, I made the mistake of asking him why his IP address showed Nigeria when he claimed to be in the UK [yes, dumb on my part] as he explained to me that 'oh no, his internet must have been hacked again'. He was somehow able to change it 'just like that' to a US one. Myself, not being skilled in understanding what was really going on; believed him. Now, I know different. Anyway...
his original IP address 9-6-09 to 11-8-09 was Lagos Nigeria [41.219.224.227]
from 11-8-09 to 1-5-10 it was [75.147.98.245] Brick, NJ (Comcast)
from 1-5-10 to 1-12-10 chg'd to [174.129.133.196] Scottsdale, AZ (Amazon.com)
from 1-12-10 to 2-9-10 chg'd to [74.220.199.21] Orem, Utah (Bluehost)
from 2-9-10 to 4-20-10 chg'd to [216.155.136.84] Kansas City, MO (Choupa.com ISP) (organization: Muchhal_Dhruv)
from 4-20-10 to 4-21-10 chg'd to [209.107.217.11] Rosedale, Maryland
On 4-21-10 chg'd to [216.155.136.84] Kansas City, MO again Choupa.com
On 4-22-10 chg'd to [64.62.196.34] Milpitas, CA ISP: Hurricane Electric EGI Hosting Organization
On 4-28-10 [69.22.184.53] Chicago, IL NLAYER Communications
SO...IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY HIM, CHECKING HIS IP ADDRESS, YOU'LL NOTE IT CHANGES PERIODICLALLY.

Copy of one the 1st e-mails sent to me:
“Hello gorgeous, how are you doing today? hope you receive this

message and it finds you well! Your portrait caught my attention

so i decided to respond with the hope of corresponding. I guess

the first thing that came into my mind when I saw your photo was

'WOW!!!'. You are DROP-DEAD GORGEOUS! It seems you are that rare

woman who has just as much or more going for herself on the

inside as the outside. I would consider it an honor to get to

know you. Im EXTREMELY busy so Im not looking to move too fast

or for anything serious at this point, but if sparks fly then so

be it. About me, I dont have much time for or interest in the

'traditional singles scene' so I decided to give this a try.

Besides, I have a few friends who have had good experiences. At

the present time am single and completely unattached. And No I

have nothing to hide . I stand 6'2 and weigh 180 lbs. I am often

told that I look very handsome. I consider myself very versatile.

I'm very laid-back and down-to-earth. I'm also very old-fashioned

when it comes to my respect and treatment of women. Ironically, I

find that many women I encounter don't call lately, my business

has kept me from getting out much, but in general I don't have a

problem meeting women. However, meeting the right woman has been

somewhat challenging. I guess I'm seeking the proverbial 'entire

package'-beauty, brains, pleasant disposition, morals,

compassionate heart and ethics. You certainly appear to fit that

mold. Nothing speaks my interest more than a woman who has a

great deal going for herself, yet carries herself as if she is

oblivious to that fact. First and foremost Im looking for a

woman with the potential and desire to become my best friend

because I believe that is the foundation for a lasting

relationship. Im sorry for the lengthy note, but my hope is to

give you an accurate snapshot of who I am, I'm not always on the

web but your free to contact me anytime. larrymoorelarry a t y a

h o o dot c o m I leave you with the blessings of our god. Hope

AMAZING ... THAT HE'S ALSO CLAIMED TO BE A CHRISTIAN... hey, I checked the verses back in Sept., and they did line up Biblically. I even sent him my faith and theology as he'd requested.
(Since then, when I recently questioned the scammed victim support group about this. Here is their reply to me:
'Many of the scammers are Christian. They actually believe that when they get a victim to fall for a scam that it is God answering their prayers. It is all in the way they look at it.
Scammers become what you are looking for. You wanted someone who was a strong Christian so that is what he was for you. If you were Jewish, he would have been. If you were a lesbian he would have been a woman. I guess the best way to explain it is they are like actors playing a part.'

Copy of his email from 9-11-09:
Hello [my name I've omitted here],
How are you doing today and how have you been? sorry i have missed reading from you and hope your having a great day so far! I want you to know what my faith is based on and what I believe. This is my theology and I do not waver from it under any circumstance. I know what I believe and why I believe it. If the time ever came that I would have to die for my faith, would I submit myself under God’s mighty hand and consider myself to be worthy to suffer for Him. Babe when you have a chance let me know what your theology is.
What I believe about God and the Bible
1. I believe that there is only one true God known as Monotheism. (Isaiah 43:10)
2. I believe that God is the creator of all things. (Genesis 1)
3. I believe that God is from everlasting to everlasting. (Psalms 90:2)
4. I believe that God loves mankind in which Jesus came to give His life to offer eternal life to anyone who would receive Him. (John 3:14-21)
5. I believe that God will reward or judge mankind according to what they have done. (Christians - 2 Corinthians 5:10/ non-Christians - Revelation 20:11-15)
What I believe about the Trinity
1. I believe that the Trinity doctrine is Biblical and can be understood.
2. I believe that the Trinity is the one true God revealed in three distinct persons as the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit.
3. I believe that the Father is identified as God. (Galatians 1:3)
4. I believe that Jesus is identified as God. (John 1:1-3, John 1:14-18, 1 John 1:1-4, 1 John 5:20)
5. I believe that the Holy Spirit is identified as God. (John 14:16-17, John 16:7-15, Acts 5:3-4, 1 Corinthians 12:4-18, Hebrews 10:15-18)
What I believe about the coming of Jesus Christ?
1. I believe that Jesus was the Messiah to come, born of a virgin, crucified and rose again bodily on the third day. (Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 53, Matthew 1:18-23, Luke 2:10-11, Luke 4:18, Luke 24:39-49, John 2:19-21, John 20:25-29, Acts 2:22-36)
2. I believe that Jesus is the only way unto the Father. (John 14:6)
3. I believe that Jesus was the God-man. That means that Jesus was a distinct person from the Father but was by nature God in the flesh.

4. I believe that Jesus came to reveal the heart of the Father, and that Jesus was grace and truth manifested in the flesh. (John 1:17-18)
5. I believe that Jesus Christ is the true Savior for mankind and that salvation is found in no one else. (Matthew 10:32-33, John 8:24, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, 1 Corinthians 15:1-17)
What I believe about sin and the need for being saved?
1. I believe that mankind is fallen with the nature of sin. (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12-21)
2. I believe that sin is not mystical or a myth, but that sin is a reality which mankind must be saved from by turning to God's way of being saved. (Romans 5:8-11, 1 Timothy 1:15)
3. I believe that sin is lawlessness. That means anyone that goes against what God has revealed to us to live by and trust in. (Romans 14:23, James 4:17, 1 John 3:4)
4. I believe that all mankind has fallen short to the glory of God and that no one is without sin. (Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 3:23, 1 John 1:10)
5. I believe that salvation is available for anyone to receive. (John 3:14-18, John 5:24, John 20:31, Romans 10:9-13, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 1:7-9, 1 John 5:10-13, Revelation 3:20)

FORTUNATELY ...IF ANYONE FALLS VICTIM TO BEING SCAMMED,THERE IS A SUPPORT GROUP OUT THERE...
copy of My email to the support group:
Hello,
I've looked over your website which I came across on you-tube a while ago as I was doing some research about romance scamming after contacting the American Embassy in the UK regarding a gentleman whom I had been corresponding with since August 2009 that I'd thought to be authentically who he claimed to be, but since believe that he is not and that I have in fact been tricked into a scam. I submitted a short history of what happened on your website, along with his picture. I'm not sure if it went through properly. I had kept this website set aside to look through at a later time, which ended up being today when I could sit and read over everything carefully to make sure IT was on the up and up. I'm not sure where to go with this from here.
Yes, I have already filed a report (IC3 form) and a report about him on DelphiFAQ.com website. But I still haven't heard anything back regarding my IC3 form report that the American Embassy suggested for me to file as of yet.
I'm not sure, where to begin, to explain what I'm going through emotionally. It's like my head sees all the facts now clearly; ...and yet my heart still hopes that its a mistake and he really will turn out to be truly who he'd said he was. Does this make any sense???
And I know what needs to be done in reporting everything, yet I get frozen over the 'what ifs' and I don't want to be bearing false witness if I am wrong. So I've been postponing everything.
I'm writing as your website claimed to offer support which I'm assuming meaning emotional support, and healing which I am understanding to mean a person who'll help me walk through this. Some days are good, and I feel okay that I'll get beyond all of this and move on. And other days, I appear on the outside to be still okay and putting one foot in front of the other, but inside I'm crying because of what I've put my boys through in their hopes also of someday to meeting his son [especially my 5 year old]. My 15 year old son, is handling it sort of okay, and he knows now that I've been scammed, and that some money was involved BUT he doesn't know the amount or else he'd fall over backwards so to speak.
You know, I thought I'd covered all the bases of doing the background check on him and all. I had his SS# and had that checked out. I had his copy of his and his sons passports, and they came out with a clean check through the source that our church elder had checked with. And then in December, all the puzzle pieces started to not connect with him, so I began doing further research on what he was telling me, and one thing led to the other that he was not real.
It leaves me with sort of a raw feeling inside, and I'm not sure where to go with all of this from here...
I understand from your website that you offer support groups for people who have been in similar situations. Thank you for your time, ... I await your reply.

THEIR REPLY TO ME:
I am so sorry that you have gone through this and that your boys have also. It is very common that scammers will involve a victims children because if they can bond with them it endears the scammer to the mother's heart. It is a heartless and cruel twist of this scams. Yes, you have been scammed. None of it is real. The person you have talked with is a West African man between the ages of 14 - 40.

I know it is confusing when all of the information checks out, but background checks on these guys are basically worthless. The information you got was of a man who was a victim of identity theft. They do that so if you do check up on them it adds to the illusion that they are real. These criminals are masters in what they do and they can make things appear to be the truth when it is not.

MY EMAIL TO THEM:
Thanks for replying. Then let me ask you this... is it normally the usual for a scammer to mail what they claim is their 'faith and theology' in relation to God? As this is what this gentleman, Larry Moore, did in the beginning of our corresponding. He initiated this and e-mailed it to me stating what his faith and theology. It was even with correct Bible verses to back it up, and it definitely was in line to what our faith teaches. Then he'd asked me to send mine to him, which I did. We had even prayed together on the Yahoo IM several times in reference to him getting back home for him and his son. So, they would actually not have any literal fear of even God in their persuit to scam a person for money?
Yes, at some point, I will check out the information you sent to me. I'm still just sorting all of this fog out of my thinking, wondering, doubting and all. Trying to get through this, so I can move on ...
Thanks for your support and listening.

THEIR REPLY TO ME: !!!!!!!!!
Many of the scammers are Christian. They actually believe that when they get a victim to fall for a scam that it is God answering their prayers. It is all in the way they look at it.
Scammers become what you are looking for. You wanted someone who was a strong Christian so that is what he was for you. If you were Jewish, he would have been. If you were a lesbian he would have been a woman. I guess the best way to explain it is they are like actors playing a part.

Thank you for reporting this scammer to this site! And thanks for the message, scammers are masterpieces in what they do,and brainwashing people is among the things they are best in.It doesnt matter what you are telling scammers what you are suspecting of what they are ,they have always the perfect answers on everything ,as they are true psycopaths,im very sorry that you have met an scammer and not your love! and the pain the scammer has caused your family also.


I have once met an scammer in this way my self and suspected him also after an while and i confronted him in what i suspected was wrong and he had just the perfect answers also ,so everything they say ore do are only lies. do not any circumstances let this scammer contact you again!and do not contact this scammer again! The scammer will come back again and try to scam you even more,the scammers do work out that way!Scammers uses open proxy to hide theire location,becuase no real people uses so many IP nrs as scammers do,and an IP nr showing Nigeria is 100% sure that this is an scammer.


Scammers do also treath theire victims so the victim should feel more guilt and finally open the wallet once more,scammers has no feelings ore no sympathy to no one,they do not care if your family suffers ,ore what happends to theire victims.I have met victims on this site that have lost everything ,and i mean everything ..there is even victims that have made suicide becuase the discovering that they have been scammed in this terrible way,and facing the truth that someone has only fooled them is hard to take.When i discovered that i have been scammed ,i felt so much shame ,how could someone fool me in this way,and why i could not see the signs immidiately,scammers are truly so good in what they do ,and when you feel lonley you do not want to believe it either,so see the signs immidiately is not easy.



So thats why i am fighting on this site against these scumbags and report everything i can ,and i do also support victims here,so offen i can ,if you have more to report as pictures,receipts of sended money to this scammer through Western Union ,please post them here on this thread,they only thing to stop these scammers unfortunately is to reporting them ,so other potential victims do not fall for these scams,it is very hard to get caught these scammers becuase they use fake ID and change theire names and addys so offen,so the money you have sended im afraid you will never get back again.Offen the authorities can not do so much!



I have opened up an thread to all women and to others who are intrested in how scammers work out ,there you can find almost everything you need to know about scammers from Africa,please make postings on that thread also if you have something you want to share to others about scammers!

Miss Marple from United States  

Being in love with a romance scammer is a reality for some.

Victims should not take responsibility for the crime. They have done nothing wrong and are suffering in grief at the death of their relationship, they feel great pain, rejection and anger.

Their words are valuable, encourage them to speak out and post their scammer quickly, they will regret it if they see another poster who was scammed after them. They have the power to alter the future of the victims and the scammers, they may not see their work but others will look at the time they became an important part of their life and remember the act with gratitude. They do have the privilege of changing people's perspectives on how society views victims but this can only be accomplished if they release their thoughts to the world.

Society blames the victim partly for the crime, this is an incorrect and ignorant view, everyone betrays logic in love, it is human nature and it is this human nature that the scammer works on. Society views law-abiding victims as part of the problem. This is unfair to the victim. Law-abiders are not criminals. We all betray logic in love, who hasn't?


It is not a crime to make a foolish decision in your love life, although it is when involved in a ROMANCE SCAM! The mind-set that currently regards the victim as part of the problem needs to be changed!

http://www.delphifa..#comments


These women have had their hearts stolen
Their feet blackened from the darkness of where they walked
Their hearts no longer positioned where they should be
Behind every one of them is the same thief
He stands proudly amongst them
His heart black from delivering their hearts to the blackness of death

Many women are ashamed and keep their scam secret for fear of embarrassment or ridicule, the living become the ones they fear the most. The victim is left to feel a certain shame and embarrassment afer the crime but she should not. She is responsible for how she spends her money, she does not owe an explanation to anyone, it is no one elses business how she spends it or what she spends it on. If the family is upset at giving money away it may be because it was not given to them. Everyone wants money, even family. Perhaps family members have been left with a financial burden from the scam and the crime has affected them financially, families pull together in need all the time, it is a situation that requires a solution She thought she was doing the right thing at the time, she is upset because she was duped, she was taken advantage of and she knows that. She knows she is responsible for sending the money, where was her loving family at that time to help her, to send her scam information, to link her to someone with more knowledge of scams who could tell her it was not real. She needs more than being told it might be a scam, follow-up, she needs more than one sentence to listen to truth. Show her. Bring her to a new awareness so she can make an informed decision by herself. Help her to help herself, investigate for her, do the work for her. Scammers request that transfers are to be kept from others so as to shield them from embarrassment when they finally meet the family, perhaps she did not let anyone know. Ask her about her life, who she is talking to, ask questions, equip her with questions to ask him. Internet dating is different in that the whole family can scrutinize the suitor's outlook.

The scammer made the woman feel good, she may not have fallen so hard for those feelings if she did not need them so much, maybe she has been incredibly lonely, working hard, raising her family, always being the giver and receiving little in return, the family dynamic has contributed to her need although they are not responsible for the crime and neither is she. Maybe she came from a broken home and had an absent father, perhaps she is raising young children with little outside family contact, there could be many reasons.

The scammer became part of the family and was treated no different than any other family member in need. She will now be wary of bringing strangers in to her family. Make her feel safe by allowing her the freedom to talk about her scam, make her feel safe in her family home again.

Thank you Miss Marple for your reply. Your website here and the Romance Scammer's support group website counselors have been an answer to my praying broken heart. I was blessed with the courage to finally to be able to share the whole entire story of what happened to me with my best friend a couple of Sundays ago, May 2nd, to be exact. And she listened to me without any judgement, critisism, or condemnation. It was so freeing to be able to be listened to in a 'face to face' conversation, to confess my mistake of trusting & believing someone who turned out to be a fraud. I cried, and am lessened with this horrible shame that's been weighing me down [depressed] these last 4 months. I still have financial debt to climb out of because of him. All in time, ... boy, what a tough lesson this has been. And yes, I'm much more cautious of whom I give out any personal emails or phone #'s to anymore. I've had dozen's of requests on the singles dating site, and I just tell them that I'm quite comfortable with corresponding right on the site itself for right now. I don't want to crawl up into a hole as much as I'd wanted to do earlier, but I need to be careful.
I'll be so glad to see that soon-to-come day, when these scammers have to answer to a Higher Power [God]!!
God bless and sincere thanks...

Stay away from Adventistmatch.com!!! They steal users’ money!!! They use practice of automatical renewal as a way to charge you twice! They promise to make a refund but in reality they will charge you twice! If you, by chance, forgot about your first profile and open another one, they will withdraw money twice from your previous account and then they cancel both profiles! They send a lot of e-mails like they try to explain to you “your charges and refunds” and how you are stupid, but it is zero explanations and does not solve your problem. You are charged TWICE and your profile is cancelled!
Awful service and awful rude workers are there! The site is full of spammers and the owners of the site are real cheaters! They are not Adventists at all, I guess. I am an Adventist and I am completely disappointed by this site and people working there. Shame to the site!!!
For whole week they were bombing me by their abusing letters every day, one man even called me with the same mockery and threats! I got a pile of letters from the site. They sent me 4 letters even on Weekend!!! It was a few days before Christmas Time! This was “so great” to lift your spirit up before New Year!
They are rude, bold, impudent and try to INTIMIDATE users! Finally, I called to PayPal who are mediators of the payment. These people very quickly realized and confirmed my double payment-charge and promised me to return my money!
The site also is full of spammers and not alive at all.
Stay AWAY!

I had the same man, trying to get money out of me, but i don't and won't send money to any man on dating site. if you see a man telling you he loves you in a few weeks of
meeting you on site don't believe them, those are scammers, or asking you to do anything for them don't. That's my advice. match.com doesn't have any fault on this,is you for being naive. sorry to say this but is true. Anyone can sign into the site and say he is an adventist, you have to know this, and ask questions of adventist faith a lot of ?s, you'll know is if he is real.

Thank you, Elisa
