Die Geschichte, Vater von einem Sohn mit Namen Christoher, wecher 11 Jahre alt ist, und dessen Frau an KLrebs verstarb, ist mir auch passiert. Hier habe ich es nicht mit Steve Bartlett zu tun.
Bei mir meldete sich am 20 Juli 2012 ein Mann namens Patrick Morrison, der mich über die Dating Seite Zoosk angeschrieben hatte. Die oben beschriebene Geschichte ist jetzt sehr viel realer, weil hier nun die Namen seiner Schwiegereltern, Betty und George, auftauchen.
Bei mir wurde nach wenigen Tagen schon eine Liebeserklärung gemacht, die mein Herz fast zum stillstand brachte. I chbekam kaum noch Luft und hatte Probleme mich zu konzentrieren.
Mein Gefühl ging allerdings in die gleiche Richtung. Es gab Gemeinsamkeiten, Dinge, die beide gemocht hatten.
Nach zwei Wochen eröffnete mir Patrick, dass er mit seinem Sohn nach Griechenland in die Ferien fahren würde, weil der Junge sich das so gewünscht hatte und fragte bei mir an, ob beide mich nach Ihrem Trip nach Griechenland besuchen könnten. Da ich den Mann mit seinem Sohn unbedingt kennenlernen wollte willigte ich ein. Aber auch bei mir hatte der Sohn einen 'unfall' beim Fussballspielen und als er seinen Sohn in das Krankenhaus brachte und nur einen Moment unachtsam gewesen sei, weil er mehr auf seinen Sohn konzentriert war, hat man Ihm seinen Rucksack mit samt den Pässen und dem Geld und seiner Kreditkarte entwendet. Nach ein paar Tagen erzählte er mir, er müsse die Krankenhausrechnung des Kinderkrankenhauses Kyriakou bezahlen und das das Hotel auch noch bezahlt werden muss. Er hätte einen Scheck im Hotel über 700.000,00 €uro ausgestellt von einem Kunden und von einer Deutschen Bank aus Frankfurt am Main. Diesen könne er aber in Griechenland nicht einlösen, wegen der Euro Krise und dem eventuellen Ausschlusses Griechenlands aus de EU.
Ich habe versucht Geld zu senden, aber über Western Union kam das Geld dreimal zurück. Bei Abholung meines Geldes wurde mir der Hinweis gegeben, das die Auszahlung ween Verdachts auf Geldwäsche nicht erfolgt ist und Griechenland die Auszahlung verweigert hätte. Nun ich habe etwas verloren, aber damit kann ich leben. Ich habe auch Patrick mit meinem Verdacht konfrontioert und Ihm geschrieben warum ich kein Geld mehr gesendet habe. Eine Riesenszene gab es. Und am nächsten Tag hatte er nichts besseres zu tun, als mir zu sagen er liebe mich sehr. Ein mehr oder weniger vertrautes Gespräch bzw. eine ungezwngene Unterhaltung gab es ab diesem Zeitpunkt nicht mehr. Aber ich war neugierig, was noch passieren könnte. Also gab es dann ein paar Tage später wieder eine mehr oder weniger flüssige Unterhaltung mit Liebesbekundungen, Telefonanrufen, etc. In dieser Zeit bemerkte ich, dass mein 'gegenüber' Fehler machte. Zwei Tage später kam er wieder auf das Thema Geld zu sprechen und fragte direkt nach Hilfe. Diesmal war ich nicht bereit Ihm zu helfen und sagte Ihm, was ich in meiner E-Mail erwähnt hatte. Und das wird das Ende dieser Geschichte sein. Er bedankte sich und verschwand.
Eine Anmerkung hätte ich noch zu machen. Als ich Ihn mit den Vorwürfen konfrontierte, habe ich meine Sete bei Zoosk gecheckt und dort war ein Herr mit Namen Martin Hanks auf meiner Seite. Zwei der Fotos in diesem Profil waren die gleichen Fotos, die Herr Morrison mir als Fotos von Ihm gesendet hatte.
Alle Fotos stelle ich hier ein. Und die Namen dieser Geschichte müssten noch um Martin Hanks, Patrick Morrison und Maureen Agbaluwa erweitert werden, sodass vermulich das Team der 5 Dating Scammer komplett ist.
Bitte Vorsicht!

I got connected this very same scammer on Are You Interested in May (called Steven Shepard) and because I am naive and have a good heart, I fell for him and his sad story. I even sent him some money and that's why I know at least some names of his 'assistants' in Athens, Greece: Martin Hanks, Smith Saffa (from Holland), Kenneth Resident.

His story for me was very similar. A picture of his son Christopher with a broken leg was caught from Daily Mail UK website. His American friend's name was 'Gregg Adams' and I even spoke to him on the phone, he called Steven with name 'Patrick', accidentally, I guess. I spoke to 'Betty' as well. She sounded very very credible. How many people is helping him really in this charade?

Because I gave him some money, I have an interest to get him caught. It is not likely I will get my money back but hopefully he won't able to continue this scamming any further.

Well, the same happend to me as well.. He contacted me under the name Patrick Morrison, with the same story about a greece vacation with his son. He even send me the booking confirmation for the flight to come see me last night, he even did a live chat with me...
Well, I´m glad I researched and found out on time but I´m curious to know now for how long he wants to play this. Dont let this guy influence you, he is very smart and knows how to manipulate women.

Did you see him on live Skype chat? I saw him only once but then I couldn't hear his voice. He said the mic of the computer was broken. I think the man I saw was different than the man I used to talk with on the phone, that's why the mic 'was broken'. The man I saw on Skype live chat looked very much like a man in Greek professor Iosif B's blog photo. By the way, a week ago, I found a man called Martinluvseeker from Brooklyn, NY on Are You Interested. One of his pictures was the same as Martin Hanks from Athens, Greece.

The same thing has happened to me. He claims to be Patrick Morrison with a son named Christopher. The same story about a trip to Greece, son hurt his leg playing soccer, went to the emergency room, bags got stolen, passports got stolen, money got stolen. He asked if I could send him money but I refused. He later, about 2 weeks later, asked me for a favor to purchase the iPad mini that was being released for his son that he had promised this for his son. I have chatted with him, video chatted with he and his son, talked on the phone daily. He was so sincere and was the most amazing man I have ever met. Like the other posts on here though, his video cam microphone was broken. I would also notice that he would not really answer many personal questions and always commented that his son was shy and didn't want to talk with me. When I did actually get to video chat with his son, he was wearing a santa claus beard to cover his face. I noticed that the chat was way too sophisticated for an 11 year old, plus, he had the same spelling errors as Patrick did. When I was chatting with his son, I asked to see the cast and suddenly the camera froze. After that, Patrick told me that his webcam was broken and didn't work anymore. Coincidence? Think not. I've always had doubts in the back of my mind and have been very careful, but, I was having a hard time believing that a scammer would spend a month trying to scam from someone that wouldn't give him anything. I guess he was trying to earn my trust more. He kept promising that as soon as they got back that he was coming to see me. The thing I am most upset about is that my 6 year old son was brought into this. I truly felt like this relationship was something special and would casually talk to my son about it. This was the first person that I had ever brought into my son's life, and, now, this happens. This totally frustrates me. Beware, because this person is real smooth. Keep your eyes open.
