Claiming to be from UK, IP checked, He is from Nigeria. Contacted me 2 months ago. Claiming to have a daughter 25 years old who is a student at Cembridge and he has no money to pay for her now because he just left for the contract of his life in Nigeria but the company Coca Cola will pay him after 3 months. I sent him 500 US $ and now the started talking how much he still needs to pay for his daughter's education and medical treatment. She is loving in Liverpool and not working and has no bank account so the money were supposed to be sent to him in Nigeria.
He Writes all love letters and constantly asking for my trust. Promised to marry me in the 2nd week.
I am sure that he is not real now and will want to tell the other ladies about him.

Many come here regularly and understand the longing which you speak of.
We are a caring family (in a sence) and we graciously voice the feelings of disgrace
brought upon our bleeding hearts, when human deceit extinguished a small flicker of
love... oh so welcomed. We have no fingers to point, nor words to patronize such
grief. I hope that you choose to return again and find strength here.

Thank you so much for posting about this creep . I too was scammed by him in Dec 2009 . I had a profile on my space and he sent me the same sob story as he did to several other victims stating that he was a single dad living in Nigeria with two small kids working for Coca Cola . I naively believed his story and gave him several thousands of dollars. During the time of his scam ; I was told that his daughter Dallas had a heart condition, contracted malaria and died because he didn't have the money for her medical care. He claimed that he and his son Daniel had to flee their home when he wouldn't agree to renew his contract and had to live on the streets. Through much advice from family and friends ; I learned how to avoid his emails and phone calls . I thought after 4 years I had gotten him out of my system and ended the nightmare with him until the other day I discovered an email from Twitter stating he wanted to hear from me .

My sister is being scammed by the man in the pictures or the one using the pictures listed above. She met him on an online dating website. She has never met him before and has been sending him large amounts of money. I know this because she asked to borrow money from me to send to her 'fiance' who is stuck in Europe because his bank account got frozen. She has never met him before but has been corresponding with him via email and phone. She has been sending money to him since June 2013. I think she has sent him over 35k. She is very in love with him and will not believe anyone when they say that he is scamming her and that he is fake. How do I get her to realize that she is getting scammed?? How can I help her???? She will not believe me. She has changed her phone number and severed all contact with family. She continually sends this man money (to a different name every time). Sometimes its to the UK and sometimes ireland. Its sometimes a nigerian name and even once it was a beer name, Samuel Adams! She gave him a debit card with all her account info, including a username and password. She really is in love with this man!!! Her kids are waiting to meet him and believe that he exists as well!! I will try to get his pictures from here and prove that he does not exist!

How sad...... I want to share my story seth the kreep hiding behind the pictures of this man. I met Peter Richardson who was using one of the pictures listed in this site 2 years ago. At that time he was in England and just about to travel to Africa for a project.He fell in love with me very quickly and sadly I fell for him. He said that his wife dyed 3 years ago and that I was his long looking sole mate. His daughter was going to stay in England so she can complete her studies. Not long after his arrival in Nigeria he got attacked by Boko Haram group and he needed me to pay a ransom of 3500$ or I will never see him again. He was calling and crying every day and night. There were others calling me at different times of the day and nights for a week. Then they sent me a medical report saying that he will dye of hunger if I don't pay and I did. Then his daughter called me clamming that she had scar accident and I as will be her mother have to help her with her medical treatment in a clinic. I payed as she asked after a Dr. contacted me informing me that she will not be treated unless I send the money by WU so they are cashed a payed cash. At that time of the night I couldn't think it and ASAP I sent the money 850$. I then asked him about the medical insurance and he said that he could not pay because was not working for some time and that I as his future wife and the only one has to stand beside him. Long story short I sent him money nearly every 2-3 months for different reasons till this last spring when I got tired and realized that he only asked for money and I am the one to pay. I started researching and read all about this scam business so I confronted him, told him what I think about him and that I know what he is and then I blocked him. He then contacted me using a different email and asked for forgiveness and only need to tell me something very important. I decided to listed as I am always very curious and her he confused to me that he was using this face identity but because the economy and situation in Nigeria is so bad and that he need to make a living and I was the victim but because he really del in love with me he decided to confess and not to lose me. I advised him to look for decent job and to use the skills he has and here again he is trying to suck money from me and asking me to pay for his website design and registration fees. He sent me a long letter telling me that there is an IMM institution that they need money to let him activate his account. This time I did my homework and I found out that there is nothing called Internet money making Securely institution or fees or IMMS/IMM as he claimed. I may be old and not very familiar with this internet business but thanks to him and his actions I now research about every small thing he tells me about and I learned a lot but the most I learned was that this young man I stealing from lonely and poor people like me who are on fixed income. We are the once who have the check every month and we are easy to be emotionally manipulated. How sad that the young people who will lead the future are like this. We need to wakeup and accept the reality. There is no such thing as love from those who sit behind the screen and look and abuse us. I was observing his behaviour and realized that on Sundays he never call and many times Saturday but only when he needs money he will be be there for me all the time. Pushy and sometimes when I refuse to send funds he can become nasty to me and uses offensive language. I was reading the stories from the other women who suffered from this group I would say because many times I felt that it was a different person sitting and writing.
Run away, block, ignore and do not answer to the calls and emails, they know how to bring you back to the loop a rescan you again and again.
Hope you are in better situation than me as I have to pay back a lone and I am late with my rent payments because I was believing that this criminal is real.

Follow up to my story.
I refused to send him money for this Internet Money Making fee, as it does not exist, and he is now sending me this poem and saying he wrote it and here again I found it online and it was written be an artist and has been posted a year ago. What a lier! Who will believe this, those criminals keep on stealing money from women like me and abusing our generosity. Now he is promising that he will marry me once he become rich by opening a fishing site and convincing me that this site will be for lovers and he will give lectures and write poems. What poems he will write the ones that he is stealing from other people?
Hete is the poem he sent me and I am posting it with the reference so I do not pressurize others people work:if only you knew.
if only you knew, how my heart overflows with love for you. If only you could see the way you fill my hopes and dreams. You’re the owner of my heart, the ruler supreme. Even in the dark of night, I’ve only to think about you to feel your loving light and from this world I drift feeling as if I’ll never touch the ground again… If only you knew. If only you could guess how I hear your voice when others speak; for you hold the key to my happiness, and it’s always you my soul seeks. If only you could feel, how your very presence has the power to heal, all the wounds inside me. You’ve made me abandon the pain of yesterday, and you’ve shown me that the past can no longer stand in the way of what I hope to achieve… If only you knew. If only you could realize the way you’ve shown me that it’s better to give than to take, and whatever I do, I do for your sake. I’m willing to give you my all and expect nothing in return. But, oh how I yearn for you… if only you knew.
