Name: John Tenar



Other Comments:
Seen on Hometown was listed as Boston. Stated is Civil Engineer working as global contractor on the Pearl Rig off Nigeria. (The Pearl rig is not off the shore of Nigeria and it's a rig for Shell Oil Co. in a joint effort w/another country). Said wife was fashion designer who died of cancer 3 years ago & 11 year old daughter lives w/his mom in UK now. Project will finish in two weeks - beginning of Nov. 2011. Said he lived/went to h.s. in South Africa and got Bachelors Degree from Keele University in UK (they don't have a Civil Engineering degree program). Also uses Yahoo IM as tenar_john.

Spoke of the 9 rascals and named them all; Nelson married Debby and had met her on the internet, where he was inspired. He copied/pasted the same exact email to me on 10/10 and 10/19 and got 'upset' when brought to his attention.

Profile on Match was hidden right after initial contact...which he stated was b/c he traveled back to Nigeria to complete project on the rig; stated will be his last one 'from the field'. States daughter's name is Elizabeth. States his mother was German woman from Florida and father was UK diplomat to South Africa. States Father deceased.

Very poetic writer, with writing as would be expected of someone w/an accent. Spells things in British style, using an 's' instead of a 'z'.

Cell phone is from Nigeria: +2348083230376
IP addresses have switched according to his story however, from the West coast of the U.S. to Nigeria. IP will be San Francisco, Redmond, CA area and Seattle area where Microsoft is. No IP was ever from Boston where he reported to be at the initial contact. Then as went with his story, the IP did move to Nigeria. There was no difference in his writing except for sending the same damn email twice, many days apart.

No proposition for $$$ yet, but waiting to see...was waiting for some big tragedy, but none so far...but who knows...the job isn't to be done yet until beginning of November. He's aware of my healthy suspicion from the beginning, so presents more of a challenge, I suppose. I don't think he can find a way to ask, actually, without sounding corny - besides, he eludes in his emails to wealth of his's subtle, but there if you read carefully - so how someone whom owns their own company and calls their own shots will need money, will be an amazing work of fiction alright. Some posts are a verbatim copy as listed here to others ass well...
