Same Man! Same Story!
Flags, Flags everywhere but I fell for his lines! Poetry, songs...you name it and I've heard it! Tells me that he is going to marry me. Even tried to talk me into getting a passport for travel. I've been widowed now for 15 years and have met several men in online chats but this one seemed to appear out of no where and moves very fast! Constantly tells me that he will come to the states for a visit but never shows. Whenever I ask him about is childhood or his wife, he avoids the topic and tells me, 'I'd rather tell you all this when I see you.'
A friend of mine, did a check of his phone number and found that it is a 'follow me' number. I have never heard of that. Apparently, anytime any time you have a international phone number that begins with 44 (UK country codes) and has a UK city code of (70) it is ALWAYS a follow me number.Thought I was calling the U.K. but found out I was really calling Nigeria! These scammers will stop at NOTHING!!!! Once I started to open my eyes I realized that their is more information on this 'Peter' than I would have ever dreamed of. Here is a list of email addresses that he has used:
My friend, who found all these email addresses, said that many of them were linked to a 419 scam. (See link below) I guess this is a huge Nigerian scam that tells people that they will receive money. Another email address linked 'Peter' to Pet Delivery Scam and a Rental Scam.
Another Romance Scam site has him flagged using a different name with different pictures: http://www.romances..0&t=27140
Once my friend told me about all of this I was stunned. Took me a few days to really make sense of it all. I wasn't sure if this was all for real. I played it cool and asked Peter if he knew about any of it. He gave me some sad excuse about how someone was out to ruin him. Ruin him?!!!!! He's ruining me!!! I'm so hurt and confused. I thought I had met my soulmate and I came to find out that what I thought would be my Latin Lover is really some Nigerian! All of his 'I love you's' were lies! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful friend who would show me all the signs that I was so blind to see. I realized I was being scammed when I insisted on a web chat and 'Peter' told me that he didn't have a webcam. I even asked that he hold up the a copy of the day's newspaper and take a picture of himself with that paper and he told me that his camera wasn't working. Lies, Lies, Lies.
Here's the picture that I 'fell in love with'. It's so sad to think that someone innocent (i.e. this guy in the picture) is being posted here but I would hate to know that another woman was scammed by this pathetic excuse for a human!
