Hi there,

I had an another encounter with Mr. Morrison last night. I told him a few day`s ago what I thought of him. Anyway, he send me a few messages last night accusing me of treating him wrongly, since he never asked me for anything ( of course not, he didn`t have the chance ).
Obviously, he found this site and threatened me with consequences, he told me that he will do the same thing to me and put my name and picture on a scammer side... He told me that he will pay me back for that,- he also stated that he is innocent and wrongly accused by me...... This guy is crazy!!!!!

He did the same to me when I confronted him. He kept saying someone was trying to frame him and he would find every one of them and get back at them. He threatened to use my pics and put me up as a scammer myself...which I am not. He threatened to show up at my house with his 'son' Christopher to prove he was real. His words exactly...

'as I told you on the phone .. You don't want to listen and I can't do this.. you all have killed me with this shit. My son is crying and I am fed up.. Someone has done this to me I was talking to a woman a while ago and she turned out to be a pshyco so I didn't continue, she had all my info, and I know someone has logged in my account and so far I don't know but I will figure it out. How the FUCK dare you post me on that site.... I know someone is fucking with me and I will figure all this out, it may even be the mother fuckers from the company I used to work in I don't even know but I will figure it out and everyone who has harmed me in any way will see the light. I am done begging. Believe and say what you want keep on going to the site, just know as I checked it out once you go on. your emails, your account info, all your information will be automatically stored and they know your info believe it, just try to erase your tracks, I know someone has fucked with me... I am not going to try to beg you to believe me, and I will not do anything to prove myself to you or anyone until I am back home out of this shit.. I am gonna get the fuck out of here even if I have to do something terrible, but I will and when I get back I am gonna drive up to your door with Christopher, show you some paperwork and documents which will explain things and then I will turn around and drive off for good. that is all I have to say.'

He claimed that a previous interest posted everything about him because he was talking to someone new and she was mad. He claimed to be widowed, with an 11 year old son Christopher who went to private school and he could take him out any time to go on vacation or travel for work, had inlaws named Betty and George who lived near him in NY and they would go there every Sunday for dinner and he would help them around the house. He pronounced his love in less than a week. When I video chatted with him his microphone was broken on his computer he claimed. He would never answer his phone when I called until I called him out on it. He would call me love and darling all the time. When he claimed that his bag was stolen after 'Christopher' got hurt in the emergency room of the hospital (which was full of gypsies with babies) he asked for help and money. I refused. After being in Greece supposedly for 2 weeks after that without getting help from his bank or replacement cards (because his bank wouldn't send them overseas) I confronted him again as to why his bank would not help him. I never really got an answer. He would divert certain questions. I did play along and said I would send money and was told to send it under the name of the hotel receptionist who would help him get it because he didn't have an ID yet. He told me the name was Smith Saffa, which I have since learned from this site was used various other times.

Even after confronting him about it all and seeing it all on this site, he was so good at trying to convince me that he was being scammed I almost thought I was wrong. He was very smooth. It is a shame that he is a scammer, because in all honesty, other than being scammed, he was what seemed like a wonderful, caring, sincere, sweet, and very loving man. I guess that is why he is such a good scammer, he is a pro at it.

I was also scammed by Patrick Humphrey aka Patrick Morrison. He Skype's with you and tells you his mic is broke. He is a nigger that lives in Greece. A woman called me and said that he is really a black man that lives in Greece and had also done this to a woman in West Virginia. Do not get involved with this man!!!!

I met Patrick Morrison back in Sept 2012. Talked everyday via messenger. He would call almost every other day after I gave him my number. He was taking a father son vacation to Greece the week before Thanksgiving. So sweet. Seemed like a loving father. Told me all about his upbringing in NY city. How he was a right hand man to a crooked guy and feared for his life changed a letter in his last name and moved to his parents house in flushing, NY. His parent both have passed. His son 'Christopher' was a great kid , well behaved and mild mannered. Told me every Sunday he went to his in-laws house for dinner, a tradition started before his wife passed from cancer. Their names were 'Betty and George' he went on about how he hoped I could accept that they were still in his life and family was very important. Same as I read before, Chris broke his leg while playing soccer and while they were in the emergency room all their belongings were taken by gypsies. He was very emotional going on about Chris being in a lot of pain and how he really needed money to pay the drs to set his leg and administers the drugs to keep the pain away. After 3 days of this I sent him money, I talked to Chris via web cam as well, I felt for him. He told me his dad made him wear the cap and Santa beard because of his safety on the net. So believable. He asked me to pick up an iPad mini for Chris as well, but came back a few days later telling me never mind that Betty and George got him one. To make a long story short, I received a call on 1/20/13 from him about flying to Greece to meet him he had something to tell me. After telling him no I can't just fly to Greece I work. He told me his name wasn't really Patrick, his name was Calvin. I was stunned even though I was trying to put everything together. I knew it was a scam after sending the money but hoped still talking to him I would get my money back. He said the little boy was his friends son. The money was to help him because he was very sick. It was his friend that video cammed with me. Mic broken as well.
I sent him a text asking him his real name...he sent back Kelvin Smith Saffa. His phone number is 646-543-0821 a NY number, cell provided by his friend. If anyone knows what we can do to catch him I would be very happy to know he can not scam anyone else.

Also beware of another ...wkunow@ yahoo.com. William has a daughter named Elizabeth. Widowed approx 4 yrs ago. Wife died of cancer. He states he is from the U.S. on his OkCupid page but he tells you he lives in Scotland. Taking care of his mothers furniture business. Also asking for money, says his daughter was diagnosed with cancer while living with his parents in Texas. He has since flown her to Scotland to be near him. Googled his name address /business is in London, phone number is a London number as well. He is asking for home addresses to have his American clients send you their checks and you forward the money. After saying Nona million times he ask if you can open a venmo account to receive the money. I didn't fall for this one...just wondering if it is the same person.

The same thing has happened to me. It began on 9 September 2012 and he called himself Patrick Morrison and our last communication was 7th May 2013. We met on Zoosk dating site and then soon after a week started emailing one another on our personal email addresses. After 2 months, we started skyping each other using video webcam or he would call me from his mobiles. He stated that he was widowed on the dating site and his his communications with me and had been for 5 years, had a young son called Christopher who was 11 yrs old and they lived in Jasmine Avenue, Flushing, USA. His son was very shy and he didn't like posting his picture on the dating site as he told me that in his past he worked for a company who threatened to kidnap his son so therefore he altered his name by omitting a letter so nobody could trace him and his son and that is why his identify or his son's cannot be found on google or other sites. His date of birth is 11/05/1970. His in-laws are Betty and George and his late wife Myriam died of cancer 5 years ago. He hasn't had a sexual relationship for over 5 years and is looking for a good woman to be his wife/partner and be a mum to his son. His son is home educated and travels with him on business. He is self-employed in IT and very rich and owns his own home and they have a luxurious lifestyle. He has no Power of Attorney for his accounts in America as they have not been changed from his late wife and his inlaws don't have access to his financial accounts to send money to him in Greece.

The first story started when he went to Greece with his son on vacation, then son hurt his leg playing soccer, his son needed an emergency operation on his leg, bags got stolen including his money and passports. He didn't have medical insurance for both of them and needed money for his son so his leg could be reset and it was going to cost £1,000 +. As I felt sorry for him and his son and I have a good heart and Im a good woman, I helped him out and gave him money for the medical treatment.

During this time he suddenly couldn't web cam me as he had sold his ipad to get more money to feed him and his son so we only spoke on Skype and he could see me but I couldn't see him ! We also video cam in internet cafes as well but again never saw him ! I never spoke to his son or video cam him only saw pictures of his son. He sent me loads of different pictures of him and his son including sexually explicit ones as well ! Didn't question the sexual pics as by this time was totally in love with the guy and he knew it as when he didn't get his own way with me he would upset me by saying that he never talks to any other women except for me and that I should do the same. He also mentioned he didn't want to be played on several occasions, huh ! only for him to play me and break my heart.

Then the next story was that his drink got spiked in a casino whilst he was trying to win his money back that he put down and he lost 16,000 euros. The gangsters at the casino took his passport away and threatened him with violence and said he couldn't leave the country until the debt was paid back. During this time he was still in this hotel running up hotel bills amounting to supposedly 4,000 euros (never to be thrown out onto the street or put in jail, funny that !) His accomplices during this time for collecting the cash through moneygram agents were David Saffa, Smith Saffa and Kenneth Resident. He never collects the cash himself as he says he doesn't have his passport and doesn't trust Western Union as they do lots of checks. During this time he got very aggressive and angry with me it was almost as if he had a split personality because I said I couldn't help him with this level of debt.

Soon after, he sent Christopher back to the states on his own by plane back to his inlaws as he couldn't cope with looking after Christopher as well and became very insecure in his personality and suddenly always feeling very tired as he said he was not eating. We would often Skype at ridiculous hours even though Greece was only 2 hours ahead it would either be late at night around midnight or very early in morning when his son was asleep. During this time he often became very sexual with his needs and words and when his son was around became this doting dad again.

Then he got sick with an upset stomach and begged for money so I helped him out again however the more I tried to say no to him the more aggressive he got with me manipulating me into feeling guilty about not helping him out.

Then as his clothes had been stolen at the hospital, he had no warm clothing and needed some to keep him warm. So I posted some to him at this greek address, 5 Belle Street, 11741, Athens, Greece c/o Smith Saffa who supposedly worked at the hotel and I also sent a toy car to his son. No presents were ever sent to me from his hotel or this address.

Around December 2012 I was away abroad visiting family overseas in NZ and he broke contact for a while and then he called me over there only again to beg for money as he was sick being extremely manipulative saying 'you wouldn't want your baby to die would you?' I couldn't help him as was in financial hardship myself and he also tried to Skype me over there on my mobile. Since December I have not given him any money yet when we spoke on Skype, email, text or call he would never ask for money and backed off completely which was nice as I said he was too intense and extremely moody and very insecure.

I then was totally convinced that for some bizarre reason I was going to help 'Patrick' with the casino debt and bailed him out of what he owed giving him almost all of my divorce settlement. He said he had booked flights to visit me in UK, sent me confirmation email of flights and dates only never to turn up. I got a text to say they wouldn't release him unless he paid for the hotel bill in full and needed another 4,000 euros from me. I then received a call from 'Saffa Smith' to say Patrick had got into a fight with the hotel manager as they wanted more money from him so he was going to take a representative from the embassy, including the police as witnesses when he gave the money to the gangsters. I said I didn't have it as I didn't and then he told me I was lying and that I didn't want him to come to the uk that much as couldn't help him out with the hotel bill. It broke my heart as I had always helped him although I was always in financial difficulty as was going through a divorce. During this time, he then mentioned that if I was going to help him I had to do it before the Greek festival as everything would be closed including the American embassy. The dates were 26th April to 30th April.

During the whole period, we video cam twice and then after a week of meeting on zoosk chatted by email for 2 months and then mostly on Skype by sms message or call me on Skype. In Greece, he used a greek top up mobile to call me or text me and then installed viber app so we could make cheaper calls to each other or text this continued until very recently until his last communication on 7th May where he called me to say he was getting a night flight home to the states and was running from the country as he hadn't paid his hotel bill and was going to escape the country by using a paper from the American embassy in glyfada, Greece as he couldn't get his passport back. Once he arrived in States, he would send me an invitation to join him there to start a new life together.

I truly felt like this relationship was something special and feel so hurt that I have been so naïve, gullible and trusting to somebody who said they never wanted to be played but has played me good and proper. I should have seen that there seemed to be endless excuses/problems with no solutions !!! and yes he seemed too good to be true and available with his personality and good looks. Beware this guy was no ordinary romantic scammer, he was smart and very professional in his manner knowing just how to manipulate his victims and knew exactly what to say regarding his feelings and words and because we had skyped I thought he was real and he kept saying this to me to reassure me to regain our trust. What really hurts me is not just the loss of money ive lost through my divorce settlement but that I was hurt very badly and that the guy broke my heart and that he played games with my feelings. Keep your ears and eyes open !

Same happened with me re the same story about Greece and the doting dad story re his son, parents, family values, work ethics stated by Patrick Morrison. Wanting to settle down for the right woman and to relocate.

This guy is so convincing that I believed him. I feel very numb inside and only want him to get caught now for scamming and hurting me but others too.

A friend of mine has tracked his American mobile down to that he is not really in Greece or the states but Pakistan, believe it or not and has been scamming women for fun for a very long time. He also mentioned to me that he this Patrick guy was being arrested in Pakistan.

The same happened to me re Patrick Morrison. I totally fell for him and everything he said, totally believing everything as I fell in love with everything about him only now to have a broken heart.

Watch out, this guy is a manipulative pro and very good at getting what he wants from you?

Tread carefully.

In the back of my mind I had my doubts about him and the money, but felt he was addictive and looked forward to his chats, messages, calls and he made me feel good like I have never felt before and really believed that me helping him would bring us closer together for real.....I feel such a fool...
