I met this person on okcupid. He went by the user name lovingyou1566 and then sincerheartluv. We communicated by email and phone calls for about two months. After the first two of communication, he said he had been awarded a project contract in Liverpool, England. After a couple of weeks in Liverpool, he started running into problems. First he lost his wallet and then he said that his equipment had arrived for his project, but he was unable to get his equipment out due to the fact that it went over what his contract budget would allow. He started asking me for money to help him with retrieving his equipment from customs. At first he wanted $30,000.00. I told him NO. Then as each week went by, he would ask for less. The final request was $3000.00. Needless to say, I did not give him any money, and he stopped emailing me. I was also contacted by another woman who had also been dealing with this Michael Schwab from a different dating site. He also tried to scam her for large amounts of money. He used a different photo than the one site that I met him on. i want you ladies to know that this guy is very good at what he does. I don't want to see a woman being taken advantage of by these online dating scammers. I also want to add that he copied all his love letters to me from lovingyou.com Each email sent me was new and titled in the subject line. (The titles were the exact titles of the love letters he copied from lovingyou.com) Ladies, he goes by the name of Michael Schwab, he says he is originally from Iowa. He says he owns a Pipeline Engineering business called Revolution Engineering, Iowa. Please beware.

I would also like to add that this person who calls himself Michael Schwab seems to use the word 'iowa' and his initials, such as mc or ms in his email address, so far with hotmail. He does not use IM when communicating. The phone number that he has used with me and also with another woman, is 408-912-8441. The address he uses he for his company is 856 Basswood Lane, Iowa City, Iowa. He claims that his mother is Italian and his father Romanian. He left the states to live with his father in Romania at the age of five. He then returned to Iowa somewhere around 1995, I think. The information that I have compiled is with another woman that was also romanced by this Michael Schwab and asked for money from her. The places that he has claimed to live is , San Jose, CA, Iowa City, Iowa, Dallas, TX, Houston, TX, White Plains, NY. He also claims that he has a half brother who lives in his home that he owns in Iowa. He also claims that his wife and child died in a car accident. The photographs posted is the ones he used withme. He does use other photographs which I have seen, but can't post for safety of the other woman that was also involved with him. I truly hope that this will help to stop this impersonator/scammer.

I believe there are several people involved in the Michael Schwab scam....one who makes the phone calls & nurtures the connection, and another who writes the nasty threats when the scam is uncovered. When the conversation shifts immediately from 'who I am' to 'how much I love you', beware!

Yes, I agree there are probably more than one person involved with the Michael Schwab scam. I also received a threatening email from him when he discovered that I had reported him.

It was iowams@yahoo.com
Thanks for your email and concern about the situation with my equipment; i have already taken a loan against my home and my car. Once again i am sincerely sorry for asking you to loan me money, i have never been in such a situation where i have to ask anyone for a loan, i am the one who people run to for help and not me asking someone for a loan.  If i don't have my equipment cleared on or before Friday, an additional cost of $580 will be added daily as demurrage. If you are able to loan me the money, i am willing to send you a copy of my international passport and also write you a promissory note to re assure you of my repayment immediately i return back to the States.
I am thinking about you. I want to let you know again HOW MUCH I am in love with you. I will love you forever and for always, Baby. You are a woman every man is dreaming about and that’s not all ... you are all mine. I don’t know what I did good in this life to deserve you, but I must have been doing something very good in my life! Being with you makes me feel like the entire world is mine. One day we be together and remain together forever ... I am dreaming about that. I love you, Baby, and I am yours forever!!   
Sounds the same to me!!!

How can I post pphotos of someone whose pics are being used by a scammer. I would like the handsome fellow to know someone is out there using his photos and maybe his name. purportedly in Malysia working. Very different sounding voice when I called him out of the blue. surprise his room is not in his name. Will see what the future hold

Thank you all for this wonderful job of exposing this scammer Michael Schwab, he has successfully scammed me of $20,000 with the same story of having problems with his project in London, he requested i send the money to his accompanist Gayle Sanchez with phone number 772-205-7052 and 772-299-3098. Gayle called me on different occasion, claiming to be a sister to Michael Schwab. I made every payment directly to Gayle Sanchez. Please beware of these criminals; they are out there to rip people off their hard earned money.

He tried reomancing someone I love and me being a nosey person decided to try to do a background check on him and once i did and could not find anything on him, i knew he was a fake.
