Ich kenne Steve Bartlett aus der dating line are you interested.Er hat mir die Geschichte erzählt,seine Frau sei an Krebs gestorben,hat einen Sohn,Christopher,11 Jahre alt.Macht gerade Urlaub in Athen.Wollte an einem Samstag zu mir kommen,genau vor dem angeblichen Abflug brach sich der Sohn ein Bein beim Fussballspiel.Im Kinderkrankenhaus Kyriakou wurde ihm dann seine Tasche gestohlen,natürlich mit allen Pässen,Geld,Travellerschecks.Hat nur noch ein wenig Geld im Hotel und kommt nicht weg,da der Sohn noch operiert wird usw..Hat mir das Blaue vom Himmel versprochen,wenn wir erst eine Familie sind,Sohn will angeblich schon mom zu mir sagen,hat schon mit mir telefoniert,habe eine extra prepaidkarte,weil ich schon vorher misstrauisch war.Jetzt sagt er mir er bräuchte Geld,ich sagte,ich besitze nichts.Er meinte dann,dann könne er in schlimmen Zeiten ja nicht auf mich zählen,um mir ein schlechtes Gewissen einzureden.Später sagte er mir,er hätte einen Freund,der mir aus China einen Scheck schickt,den ich bei Western Union einlösen soll.Als ich ihn fragte,warum sein Freund nicht selbst das Geld anweist,sagte er, aus China ginge das nicht.Er schreibt sporadisch,telefoniert nur kurz,natürlich nur um zu sagen,wie sehr er mich liebt.Vom Sohn keine Rede mehr.Auch nicht auf meine Frage ob die OP gut verlaufen ist.Keine persönlichen Angaben,von wegen Grösse,Lieblingsessen und so weiter.Nur Ausflüchte.Betont aber er wäre nicht böse mit mir,dass ich kein Geld hätte,er würde schon für mich sorgen,wenn er erst das Geld hat,und dann natürlich sofort zu mir kommen.Auch in meine Nähe ziehen,weil er angeblich überall arbeiten kann.Ich halte ihn mit Ausreden hin.Also bitte aufpassen,macht sich wohl vornehmlich an Mütter ran.
Nix schicken,nur knapp antworten.immer betonen,dass man arm ist und nichts hat.
Are you interested ist übrigens eine Seite von facebook.
Danke,dass ich das mal loswerden durfte.

I hereby would like to clarify that Mr. Steve Bartlett is NO datingscammer.
The German commentary was not written by me.
I'm Steve Bartlett also met on a dating line.
He is a caring, calm person.He tried everything, so I feel good.He calls and writes emails.
Every day we write in the chat.
Moreover, it is also not true that I have an extra prepaid card.
In the German comment is that I had an extra prepaid card, because I am distrustful.
I have two phones, one for personal things, one for work.
And Mr. Bartlett has my number on private purposes.
And it is not true that I sustained Mr. Bartlett with excuses.On the contrary.
We talk a lot together.He is very caring and asks me how I feel.How was my day.
Whether I have enough sleep..What I like to eat and so on.His own needs, he omits.
And he has not once tried to convince me feel guilty.Because he had no reason to.
Mr. Steve Bartlett is one of the warmest, most good-natured people I know.
He cares about me.
He comforts me when I'm sad.
Since I'm in a difficult phase, he is there for me.
He makes me laugh with his good-natured kind of always.
I am the mother he has not known.
I have only mentioned later.
He also wants money from me NO.I can only say again that Mr. Steve Bartlett is the dearest, sweetest man I ever met.And I hope to God that he reads this and knows that I have spoken the truth.I'll say it once for all: Mr. Steve Bartlett is and was NO datingscammer.He is the kindest man that a woman could want.
And I hope that whoever wrote the German comment in my name,these retreats.

Your posting is very confusing..if you have received photos that is reported here and under the name Steve Bartlett i can tell you for sure it is an scammer behind this! Scammers probably from africa has stolen his photos and scams women, The man on the photos is an Greek and his real name is Iosif Botetzagias and i am sure he has nothing to do with any scams.
btw even if he has not asked you for money yet,it can still be an scammer,scammers can wait long time before they even do that,so if i were you be careful with this Tony Bartlett if he has sent you these photos posted here.

Liebe Miss Marple,
ja,es klingt etwas konfus.Ich weiss schon länger,mit wem ich da zu tun habe.Er hat mich jeden Tag angerufen,die Nummer kam aber aus Kasachstan.Die ersten emails waren das Übliche,dann wollte er mich anrufen.Nach den Fotos und der Geschichte mit Griechenland,kam mir die ganze Sache schon seltsam vor.Der erste Kommentar stimmt genau so.Da ich schon vorher misstrauisch war,habe ich alles nachgeforscht.Dadurch habe ich auch diese Seite gefunden.Das Aussehen auf den Fotos kam mir seltsam vor.Mein englisch ist vielleicht nicht das Beste,aber ich kann doch schon unterscheiden.War eine Zeit in London,habe aber noch nie einen Amerikaner mit britischem Akzent gesehen.Auch die Rechtschreibfehler,kamen mir für einen 'Geschäftsmann' seltsam vor.Beim Chat hat er den Fehler gemacht,einmal I will,und einmal i will zu schreiben.Hat sich öfter verschrieben.War mal abwesend,dann wieder da,und wusste schon nicht mehr,was geschrieben wurde.Leider Gottes kennt er diese Seite,denn er hat mir meinen Kommentar als email zugesendet.Wort für Wort.Um ihn hinzuhalten,habe ich diesen Gegenkommentar geschrieben.Zeitgleich kam natürlich der Scheck über 8500.- Euro.Da habe ich drauf gewartet um Gewissheit zu haben.Wieder dasselbe,meine Adresse krakelig geschrieben,mit Briefmarke aus Griechenland,und den Brief mit Klebstoff zugeklebt.Komisch,wo doch der Geschäftsfreund in China ist.Ich sagte ihm,dass ich nichts schicken kann,da ich kein Konto hätte.Wohl aber versuche,das Geld irgendwie zu besorgen.Das zu dem Zweck, noch mehr in Erfahrung zu bringen.Werde ihm natürlich nichts schicken.Um ihn dann endgültig los zu werden,habe ich ihm so nebenbei erzählt,dass ich bei meinem Anwalt war,um die 'Sache mit meinem Konto' zu klären.Das Wort Anwalt hat schon gereicht.Tut mir wirklich leid für die Unannehmlichkeiten die ich euch dadurch bereitet habe.War aber der einzige Weg ihn los zu werden.War sehr hartnäckig.Und übrigens nicht der erste.Es gab noch jemanden,der angeblich Edelsteine verkauft,um 18 Millionen Dollar zu bekommen,kriegt aber das Geld zum schicken der Kisten nicht zusammen,ausserdem brauchte er 300,- Euro um sein Internet wieder aufzuladen,sonst könnten wir nicht mehr reden,und er könnte mich dann nicht heiraten und mitnehmen ( nach 2 Wochen !!!).Sein Name ist Jim (James) White, email: jimwhite53@gmail.com,wohnt angeblich in Sturtevant/ Wisconsin,USA.Über ihn habe ich noch nichts gefunden.Ist aber auch ein scammer,übrigens auch von are you interested.Hoffe,ich konnte einiges klarstellen und weiterhelfen mit dem anderen scammer.
Liebe Grüsse

Well I am the person who started all this, I have traveled but can't stop thinking of what I have done, and I think I have made a terrible mistake and may have destroyed two peoples lives. This whole thing needs to be removed please because as I am ashamed to admit I was angry and wanted to get back to the person in question who is now meeting with me to correct this. I misused the information of two men, both of which I was speaking to online who eventually turned me down after we met and the the information of someone who has nothing to do with this at all. I just involved everyone in my anger, and decided to mismatch and destroy him who turned me down, out of sheer stupidity. I found information from his email box when he was indeed in trouble, and as he had trusted me and I checked up on him, so after I was rejected through fault of my own I went a little overboard, ok I know a lot. When he needed me I turned my back on him because I believed he had found someone else after turning me down. He was using an alias for protection until we met, and the pictures I wrongly pasted the pictures of the man shown. I realize that I have made a great mess of things and I am trying to correct it any way I can. I really wish I could take all back. There is more to the story that I am too embarrassed to admit and it is far too personal as well. I am pleading for forgiveness of all the persons involved and will continue to try to make things right. Please forgive me and please remove all any any information related to Steve Bartlett and everyone else as well as the pictures of the man, as he has nothing to do with any of this nor does any of the information I posted. I just want to fix this however I can, I realize he is in a relationship as I am not in his life and I may have caused more trouble to many. I sincerely apologize and regret everything. I include my intial so he knows I am trying to fix this, I am so sorry... D

I'm voting for his being a scammer! I met this person on a dating site (Match) with the above pictures posted. He claimed to originally be from France, but he had a strong accent and his English was difficult to comprehend. I thought, maybe, Russia or Asia, didn't sound Nigerian/African. Claimed to live in US for 30 years or so, yet retains a strong accent which is uncommon for one residing in US from any country--although Russians do retain their accents, but he did not claim to be from Russia. He has a son, and e-mail consistent with the one I have on him. A drag b/c he seemed so sincere, what a shame.

When questioning him, he abruptly ended the phone call, and he got off of the website. If he were sincerely interested in me, he would have tried to explain/verify his identity, and not get as offended about my questioning him. We didn't get to the point of his asking for money, though.

Miss Maple,

That makes sense, then. Yes, he is a smart scammer--I'm wondering if anyone has informed the real person in the photo of what is going on--he may want to know. I'm curious how these people are caught/if they are caught. I will try to find other pictures I have of him--only one of him riding a horse, but think I deleted everything.
