Cassandrah from United States  
NAME: KYLE ARTHUR
ADDRESS: Kansas City, MO USA
Other address: Dallas, TX
Nationality: Claims to be a Canadian but was raised by his Netherlander mother.

This scammer used someone else's profile on Christian Mingle to leave me his email address to contact him because he liked my profile and wanted to know me better. He said he was 53yrs old, an engineer and does installation of marine and cargo ships. He told me that he was of a Canadian father and a Netherlands mother but most grew up in the Netherlands. He said he was self-employed and traveled a lot. He was near credible enough to make me believe him. We exchanged phone numbers, and he proceeded to email and text me romantic text every morning. But i started noticing a pattern in his emails. He never responded to personal questions. Before I knew it, he told me he had to travel to Canada to close up a business deal and to see his 15yr old daughter Rachel. I believed him because he started calling me with a Canadian number. He said when he came back he will arrange for us to meet. He told me he was only going to be in Canada for a couple of days. After a couple of days, he called me and said he got the contract but it was to go work in South Africa. Disappointed, I asked him how long he was going to be in South Africa. He said for 3 weeks. He told me not to worry because that was going to be his last assignment out of the U.S, and that after that he was going to retire so that we can start building a life together. He was to leave on Saturday. He told me when he arrived in South Africa, he will call me. He waited exactly two days, and called using a South African number. The first time he called I was sleeping, but he did not leave a message. He called a second time he called, he left me a message saying that he needed to talk to me, and that it was URGENT! For some reason something just struck me, and I quickly remembered stories that I had read on the internet. It immediately dawned on me that I was being played and was just about to be scammed. So I decided to play along. When he finally got me on the phone, I asked him what the emergency was. He told me that when he arrived at the airport, he was robbed and does not have any money to rent a hotel, and that he is stranded at the airport. He needed me to send him money to rent a hotel room. I asked him if he had called his mom or his contractor for the assistance. He started telling me a long story. I then asked him how much he needed from me. He told me $2000. He gave me the name of a woman named Amanda Gloria Edgar, and that she was an airport worker in South Africa. She will collect the money via Moneygram and give it to him. I told him i will send him the money that afternoon. I proceeded to make up FAKE Moneygram tracking number and text it to him. I told him I had sent $3000, a little more than he asked because I did not want him to suffer. He went to check the number. When he was told that the number was not correct, he text me saying the number was not correct. I told him I was sory that I made a mistake with a digit. I then changed one of the digits of the transaction number and text it to him. He went and checked and was told the number was right. I told him I was going to go back to Moneygram and take my money since they kept giving me a wrong number. I told him to give me till Monday morning to go resend the money through Western Union. Monday morning, I made up another number and text it to him. To cut a long story short, he ran around between Moneygram and Western Union and eventually got frustrated. When I realized he finally realized that I was playing him around, I then told him that I wasn't the NAIVE OLD WOMAN that he thought I was. Needless to say he suddenly stopped calling or texting me.
These are some of the correspondences that I had with KYLE ARTHUR:

Me to Kyle:
Hi Kyle, hope you are doing ok, and thanks for giving me your cell phone number. I also realize that the number is not a Texas phone number. So do you actually live in Dallas or somewhere else? However, thanks for the compliments. The other lady is my friend. About the last mail, yes it was indeed for you, since I did not hear from you after sending the pictures, as that's what almost always happens when someone ask for my pictures. As soon as I send them, they disappear making me believe these people probably work for these dating sites, and are dubiously collect peoples pictures to put them on their websites as potential members. That's why I am hesitant to send my pictures to people.
Having said that, if you are in Dallas, I'll like to meet you in person, say at a coffee shop and a location midway to where both of us live. How about that?
Have a nice day.
ME:
Hi Kyle,
Waooo! You are such good writer and a poet! With Dutch being your childhood language, where did you learn to write English so well? It's amazing how you take the time to write. I'm more or a talker than a writer. I used to be very good in writing but with the new age of the internet and electronic communication, I've become very lazy. I am also hoping that this is the start of a beautiful story. And if it does, then it will be the amazing work of God. All I want from a man is respect. love, compassion, friendship and above all trustworthiness. My only concern is that if this thing does work between you and me, I pray that your daughter and your family will accept me, being that I am of a different race and nationality. So, I don't know where this is going, but I'll pray about it every day.
I hope you are having a blessed day today. If I may ask again, can you send me some more pictures of you? I'll like to some pictures of you in different settings, such as with family or friends. Thank you very much in advance.
KYLE:
hello , how are you? thanks for the compliment about my English. yes i understand how you mean by the internet communication has reduced how we manage our day to day English. but there is nothing one can do about it. it is a new generations, every generations has what its know for. Babe, there is no point to worry about my family accepting you or not, what matters more is me and what i feel for you. here is a picture of me and family in NED. hope to see your lovely family picture too..
My warm regards.
Me:
Hello princess, i must tell you that i am getting addicted to you lol. I get a good glow on my face anytime i think of you. I knew something was missing since till now. Maybe i could sense something good ahead of us. What wouldn't i do to make my dreams come true. It is like a rigger waiting for a trigger. Would you be my trigger? lol. I just need a woman to hold me before i am old. Absolutely i have come to know that we spend the most of our life seeking for the secondary needs, while our primary needs are left unseen.
I have come to understand something in life. We have made some wealth right? but for what purpose? To be realistic, except if you just want to be known as a rich person, wealth means nothing if you have no best friend to share it with. All the millions are useless indeed. how much do we need to eat? How much do we need for shelter? how much do we need for daily fun. excess and excess leads us to vanity. But for few of us who value the simplicity, we sure would do well in finding happiness. As i always say, money can buy a good bed, but never will money buy SLEEP. it can buy the best diamond watch, but can never buy TIME, It can buy piles of books , but cant buy KNOWLEDGE. It can buy food, but not SATISFACTION, Money can buy sex, but can not buy LOVE. I want true joy and happiness. I want my woman to have power over my moods, she can make me smile in all weather. I am glad that i could get your attention my dear. You have a special thing in your heart, and i intend to find out what it is. It could take a lifetime to figure it out , but i don't mind,lol. Please tell me about your ideology of life my dear. I will be waiting impatiently to hear from you. Till I read from you, Kisses and hugs in their right places..
My warm regards
Kyle

To Me
Feb 8
Hello princess, thanks for your sweet flower. Babe you have every right to be angry because we are all humans. but what matters more is understanding each others and having the heart to forgive when we hurt each other. just in case i could not find more time to call you before i travel, i am sending you this email to let you know that as the days continue to pass, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence. I know that the next week or so will be very hard on our relationship. I've been thinking of it a lot these past few weeks. The more I think about it, the more I know I have made the right choice. I once told you that if you really loved someone, then everything would work out just fine…that if our love was strong we could make it through anything. I have realized that is what true love is all about. I want you to know that while i am gone I will be completely faithful to you. You will NEVER have to worry about that. You have completely taken my heart. It's funny, because I told myself I would never fall in love again. Yet when I was least expecting it I fell the hardest. I have finally found my partner. No matter what we may face, I will NEVER give up on our love. Among billions of people in the whole world God brought us together. No doubt about it, we were just meant to be. I love you, I will love you forever. i will call you before i leave but just in case i could not, i will call you when i get there.
My Warm regards
Kyle
ME:

YOU THOUGHT I WAS A NAIVE OLD WOMAN WHO IS NOT AWARE OF ALL THE SCAMS ON THE INTERNET. YOU WERE WRONG! IF YOU AT NOT VERY STUPID, WHY WOULD I SEND MONEY TO SOMEONE I HAVE NEVER MET? WOULD YOU DO THAT? GO AND GET A REAL JOB MY BOY, BECAUSE AS IT TURN OUT YOU ARE A BOY AND NOT A 53 YEARS OLD MAN!!!!

Thanks Jenz67. Though I was already aware of stories of how people scam vulnerable men and women out there, I never thought it was ever going to happen to me. But thank God for such stories and sites like this, I was able to catch it quick. It is very sad that this jerk may be using some poor guys photos and identity to commit these heinous crimes out there. What a sad world we live in now where the internet it being used to commit outrageous crimes on innocent people just trying to look for genuine love.

I actually was contacted by this same man.He said he was from Dallas and his story was the same except he said his name was Harry Arthur.He was supposed to meet me at a coffee shop and then suddenly had to go to Canada to see about a project that was supposed to be his last one out of country.He then called me and said he was going to go to Cape Town South Africa.He went there and after about a week wrote an email and said that there had been an explosion on the cargo ship he was working on and he had some workers that were injured and equipment that he needed to buy to finish his job.I had recently been scammed out of money so I told him that I would not be able to help him out.These scammers are a terrible burden on the average woman that wants to find love.I want to do whatever I can to keep them from harming others.I have met at least 15-20 men that have been questionable scammers.Please if you come across one of these men report them,get them off these sites.

Well -- Kyle now calling himself Harry Arthur is still out there scamming. He came at me through Match.com claiming to be surfing with a friend helping him get familiar with the cite when he found my profile & had to respond. Immediately off to personal emails. Six weeks later he pulls his I need money scam -- lost wallet in taxi while in South Africa for business. The audacity was incredible especially since from the very start of the communications I told him about my first match scam sprung in me within the first 48hours. Anyway -- here are pictures for the scumbag catalog. Hopefully I can post more than one picture!

This was his declaration of love delivered Saturday 9-20-14 & followed by a phone call letting me know he was boarding a plane to South Africa to work in 10 minutes. This was the hook he set before calling Monday morning asking for money.

'Babe you have said so much in your email and thank you for expressing your heart so deeply. after reading your email i asked my self why it took me so long to find a special woman like you but no answers lol. I just want you to know that this feeling of love that I hold within my heart for you runs deeper than any ocean or sea; I just wish you could see how much you mean to me. If only you could hold me, then maybe you would feel my love for you that burns with a flame high enough to last. If only you could hear my heart beat, then maybe you would understand the language of love with which it speaks. If only you could kiss me then maybe you would taste my love for you that's so sweet, and if only you could look into my eyes, the window to my soul, then you would know that this is no lie.
So, if what you feel for me is real and what you say is true, then with all my heart do I trust thee. If you want me as your love as much as I want you as my love then so be it. I give you this heart of mine and ask nothing less or nothing more but just that you don't go breaking my heart. My love and trust is all I have to give to you, sealed with honesty throughout and as time goes by, may it grow stronger to fulfill your heart's desire. If it pleases you, call me your lover from this day forth and you're mine...As our body, mind and soul combine, so do our hearts become one.
Hear this, my declaration of love from me to you today. I love you my Angel with all my heart and I will never stop loving you. You are my life, you are my everything. Though distance may keep us apart, you will always be embedded deep within my heart.
Yours love Forever
Harry'

I was on Chemistry.com and he said he was on there for a free weekend and gave me an e-mail address so we could talk after the weekend was over - he said his name was Johnny Ivan and gave some of the same general information - he was a widower with a 15 year old daughter named Rachel - he was marine engineer working on installing and repairing oil tankers - he went on a trip to Canada and there was an accident - he started to ask me for money but must have been able to tell from my voice that he should probably wait that was when I realized I needed to find out more about him I scanned one of his pictures into image raider - he has pictures on a website called gunstons.com a law office in South Africa and he is the founder of this company and shows his name as Grant Gunston. I even called him and confronted him (couldn't believe he answered) but he acted like he was hurt I would question him - what a really smooth operatot he is - beware - but image raider is a good place to scan photos and it will show if they are on websites - not the dating ones but others.

Ladies,

With this many different names and physical locations,
it's obvious that the photos are stolen and are being used by anonymous criminals.

From original comments;
Address: kuala lumpar malaysia

Kuala Lampur is where many Nigerians go to secondary schol after High School.

These reported contact addresses, found to be on the VOIP International System.
This platform is commomny over-abused and favored by Nigerian online crimimals.
It's voice computer, virtually untraceable and no long distance fees, anywhere.

NAME: KYLE ARTHUR ADDRESS: Kansas City, MO USA Other address: Dallas, TX...
family in the Netherlands... Johnny Ivan... Harry Arthur... Canada...etc...


As I suspected, other anti-scam sites have reports of these contacts originating from Nigeria.

I've found some who are not sure what's happening and I'm sure there are many more out there.
When it comes to Native Nigerians, every criminal plays a part. You get thes set-up scenario.

Multiple search results can be found for the photos.
GRANT GUNSTON – BA (Hons), LLB


This is their site where they stole the pics from. See for yourself...
They can't scam you with their own pics! They often impersonate attractive professional types.

The firm is listed independently at...

Searchable by practice area, location, and language.


Don't be fooled into thinking that any scammer will ever send you his photo or true info.
As far as gangs of criminals goes, these are the unmasked local youth who begin the scam.
Once the victim is in the trap more devious partners or family world-wide will take over.
