Dating scammer Richard L Knee emailaddress : email@example.com
anonymous from Australia,
I have had a similar experience with Richard l Knee. The story thus far......he was born in USA and for 3 decades resided in the UK where he met his wife and has a 20 year old daughter. He stated that he was working for Leighton Contractors as mentioned on Face Book, then he does not befriend you, however has access to your profile page and if on Public can see everything about the victim. He stated that he is currently in Selangor, after shuttling between South Australia and Victoria, and was on his way to meet a Malaysian Contact and needed money to transport equipment back to South Australia. I read the messages posted here and I received WORD for WORD the same messages...a terribly good writer however when under pressure slips up and grammar and spelling go out the window. I confronted him and ask him to clarify - prove whom he was by sending me a current photo holding a sign with 'particular words written on a piece of paper'. I requested this a few times with no response. The response I received was that I did not believe him, trust is out of the window and much more to make me feel guilty !! He should feel guilty and go back to church and get forgiveness. He is never available during the day, first thing in the morning you get the same message maybe with a few words changed, then late at night he comes on for another chat on line with the same words 'How was your Day and How are you doing etc' on closing 'together forever' and 'keep out of the sight of the eyes of men' !!!!! On Fridays the same message appears each week month after month, with 'What are your Plans for the Weekend?' 'Hope to hear from you soon'. He then disappears for the entire weekend. He does not share any personal information regarding his daily activities ! only that he is working on his Contacts !!!!! Not a nice character at all, in fact one of the lowest people whoever this person might be, with no conscience or morals in life. Just using people to get what he wants !! and stealing the hearts and souls of good women and in the process tries to get money. I hope that no other women get taken in by this person. Be aware, very aware and block him as soon as he appears
FYI - Here are 3 messages received, copied and pasted from Richard L Knee.

[Hello (Name withheld),
How was your night and how are you doing today and i also hope this message finds you well?? I sense that you are a good woman who has given a lot of thought to finding that special someone to grow old & gray with. I didn't think that I'd ever want to find someone else but turning 54 last year made me realize that I still have a lot of life & love left to give and I don't want to be alone any more. I never realized how much I was missing without having a woman in my life, not that my life wasn't full or fun enough. There's just something about female companionship that I'm lacking these days. Someone to make me feel like a teenager with his first crush, the one who makes me blush by looking at me in that way, someone to wipe away my tears when I'm sad, hold me when I need it the most, lend me an ear when I need to vent but most of all, to love me unconditionally.. I believe that God wants us to share life with others in many types of relationships, with the most important being between a man and his wife. I feel that you are unique and have so much to give to that special man and we are alike in so many ways. such a good thing,huh?
I know that this process(emailing back and forth for a while) takes a lot of time, but if you meet someone you think could be your life partner then the time and effort is well spent. I would like to take this one step at a time, meet a real woman, fall in love and see where that takes us. Believe me i never would get married again for the sake of being married - I have no intention of getting married unless I'm passionately in love .If I would have wanted to be married for the sake of being married, I could have a few times already, it has to feel right. I see too many people who are married and are not in love. Again, I'm older now and understand the importance of shared values and a shared outlook on life. I'm not looking for perfection and hopefully neither are you. I'm a good person who is kind and has a gentle spirit. I'm very easy to get along with. I don’t take advantage of people and I'm not judgmental.
I am really interested in knowing more about You, what makes you the person you are today.I want to know more about your family, your background, your life experiences, past relationships, your goals and dreams, your interests, likes/dislikes and anything else you want to tell me. I want to learn about you and what makes up your heart and soul. We are at a very good place in our lives to have an amazing love affair. We are older and have experienced enough of life to know how special love can be. When people marry younger they have to work through the challenges of building their careers, raising a family, creating a home, dealing with families, learning how to communicate, deal with financial issues.We can create the live we want and work together to make the rest of our days the best of our lives. How exciting!
A friend once asked me what I felt the most important part of a relationship is...she said trust. I said (RESPECT/COMMUNICATION) true?. How can you develop the trust if you don't communicate? I feel we have a good open communication going. You are very easy to talk to and genuinely take an interest in me as I do in you. I can tell you are a very kind, caring Woman. and....so important to me...honest.
Well I feel like it is easy to open up to you. This is so weird because we haven't even met. Hopefully we will be able to get together soon. while I am sure I can think of many more things to talk about I have probably already talked your ear off....So I'll leave it here for now and will be looking forward to hearing back from you again Soon..

Hello (Name withheld)
How was your night and how has your day been so far??? I have not known anyone in a very long time that I felt comfortable enough with to even want to share details about myself and my life. But, for some reason, I feel at ease sharing them with you.
Let's see,I had a good child hood growing up. Dad was a chemical engineer and mom a housewife (I think they call it domestic engineer these days) We were the rich (American family),though i did most of my growing up years in London because my dad was transferred to united kingdom and we were there for over 3decades..i still have some of my old school friends in London and i do visit London from time to time...i also met my ex wife in London, our parents had similar case about their work, my daughter and her mother has relocated to united kingdom where she is now studying.. My brother and I were close when we were younger and I were spoiled - not with material things but with love. How did I learn about love - just watching them. My mom and dad were the most generous, caring people I have ever known. They both had very strong faith and instilled that in my brother and myself. They loved doing things for each other - just because. They did everything together. Sure there was turmoil but it made their love even stronger. I didn't realize it then but looking back as I got older made me realize what a strong love was all about. My brother has not been so successful in that department, He has been married and divorced 3 times and lived with one he didn't marry. Through the years my brother and I have grown apart - I love him but we are not close and haven't seen each-other in a long time. That has come through his past behaviors toward me, especially during Mom's illness. He was married to his 3rd wife then who was a nurse. One thing I really didn't like was that she stopped communicating with Mom when she became sick. My brother listened to her and bullied me. He said some very hurtful things to me. I have never let him know how much he hurt me because I wanted to keep peace for the family's sake. I will tell you more about this when we get together. At times he can be such a kind, generous soul (like dad) and other times he can be a son of a gun. I just want him to be happy but know he really isn't as we haven't seen or talk to each other in a while.
I had a great mother who got very sick and passed away years ago from fighting breast cancer. It was a long battle for her but she fought so well. I miss her so much , I wish I could have just one more precious day to have been with her, a couple years prior to that, dad had a heart attack and passed away. Even though it has been a long time ago, there are times that I really miss them so much and sometimes wish they were alive. Just like you, I am a pretty happy person. I am very outgoing, honest and friendly and I pretty much smile and say hello to anyone that I see. It's funny, some people actually seem very surprised when I do but they also seem to like it and I have made many friends that way. I am very affectionate and definitely like affection in return. I love to hold hands in public, or walk with my arm around my sweetheart and hers around me. I don't mind kissing in public, but nothing too over the top (some things are better in private ....). I am very passionate and often think about how nice it would be to go to a nice Caribbean Island with my special Woman and enjoy each other with the soft island breeze blowing across our bodies in the moonlight (I know, sounds like a romance novel...) but I really plan on doing it someday!!
There is nothing better than being in love and sharing your life with someone. Like i said I do not want to be alone for the rest of my life. I want someone to share the rest of my life with and I am ready to open myself to that. If you want to be friends first, that is fine with me. I just want to say that although I am always open to new friends, I am much more interested in finding that special someone to have in my life. So, that being said, I hope that is what you want, also.
I hope that I have given you more insight into me and that you like what you have read. I will close for now and will be looking forward to hearing from you again. Take care and Have a fulfilling day.
I also love the idea of chatting on Facebook,Could you please tell me when it's convenient for us to meet each other on Facebook and chat extensively?? I hope to hear from you soon..
Your New friend

Hello (Name withheld)
How are you doing today and i hope this message finds you well?? Thank you so much for being who you are to me so far..I am presently busy with work and i would find more time to write you...I am always happy to read your message and i am ready to embark on the journey of life with you...You are a beautiful woman and very interesting,I love and enjoy every word from you
I am looking for an attractive minded woman who loves good life much as I do!I guess the best way to describe myself is that I'm a nice guy who is considerate and respectful of other people's feelings. I am compassionate,a great listener,and not afraid to show my emotions, i believed not only in what a woman look like but her heart plays the most important role to me because i want a real and a serious relationship with the right woman.But i am getting old for Games.I'm looking to build my own family with a lovely woman,who thinks it's more important to come home and spend quality time with the family instead of hanging out at the bar or out there doing some other stuffs.I enjoy traveling,it nice seeing new places and meeting new people from the other world.I consider that as an important part of a relationship. Being able to come home after work and hold a nice conversation is something that has been missing in my life for a long time.Believe it or not,the most sensitive part of my body is my fingertips.I love to touch!!!Holding hands and showing affection is very important to me.I believe in friendship so much because to me it is the key role to a long lasting relationship.I am a simple person and I try never to ask anything off anyone. What am I looking for, well that's kind of hard for me to say. First and for most I am looking for someone that is honest,truthful and faithful, with a good heart and enjoys doing some of the things I do. Someone that is woman enough to stick out good times , bad times, hard times, is always there no mater what may happen. Someone that is not controlling, abusive, or always having to be in charge. Someone that is willing to meet you half way and wants to join their live with mine. Someone who is romantic, passionate, caring but yet will surprise you sometimes for no reason. I am a nature nut, I love the outdoors, my flowers building thing, swimming etc...Someone that wants to share their life with mine and mine with theirs and in return this person will get the same and more from me.well i have being divorced for years now and i think i really need someone and would be happy if i find the person in no time and in YOU.Well I think I have talked your head off now, or ran you off,,he he he . Forgive me I am always and cutting up all the time joking around .I hope to hear from you soon.until then be safe.
Could you please send me your phone number?? We could start up by sending sms to each other, just to check up on each other and also to know how we are spending our day...I am not in any form of hurry, i want us to take things one step at a time and one day at a time..Do have a wonderful day and look after yourself for me...I hope to hear from you soon...

I have a question for you please Miss Marple. Do Scammers take photos over a period of time then utilize them as I notice the photograph from Canada compared to the ones I posted show and indicate that this man is ageing....and they have definitely not been taken one year apart ? could this picture be the actual scammer ??
Miss Marple from United States
Excellent! The scripts are used by scammers from Nigeria ,reported on other sites too..

Scammers steels and sells photos among each other,my guess it is sold photos ,well scammers use the photos for years if the photos are giving profits in scams ,I know some photos in other scams have been circulating for years online ,but I know what you are saying .
-NO the man on the photos is not a scammer ! The scammers are coming from Nigeria and are black criminal men using this innocent victims photos to scam women with ! I know it sounds confusing for you ,lots of people have had their IDs stolen online by these West-African scammers and use their photos to scam people with.
I suspect this... If the person has no knowledge that his/her photos
and stolen identity are being used as bait in this scam activity...
The scammers will continue returning to their site and continue to
steal age-progressed photos, it only makes the trap more convincing
to a long time, targeted victim.
Ya' know, this could even be done by someone whom the person
in the pictures thinks is a friend of his/hers...

Bax ..LOL hahaha...
Yes Bax you are correct... it can be scam victims photos as well as scammers can stay in contact with the very same victim for years..or simply hacked accounts on Facebook ...
