Name: Peter Hammond
Address: not known said he lives in Arlington Heights, IL but is in Benin right now on business
Other Comments: I happen to come across this website by accident also. I'm glad I did. I believe I am also being scammed. I met a man on Match.com by the name of Peter Hammond claiming to be Norwegian American living in Arlington Heights, IL. He told me he went to school at Bergen Cathedral School..Norway but I contacted that school and they do not have any record of him attending there. He's claiming to be a Civil, Petrochemical and Construction Engineer working on contract with BP and Zenon Oil in The Republic Du Benin building a pedestrian bridge of some sort there. I gave him the benifit of the doubt but after the second week what he was saying wasn't making sense and adding up. I've tried both the US Embassy and the Cotonou Embassy trying to find out about this bridge but no one will help me. Fom the pics he posted on the dating site he is very good looking. He comes across very polite and really trying to find love. He doesn't have a facebook account nor can I locate him by phone number or through associates. He gave me numbers to call and verify who he is but no one will return my calls. He owns his own business and told me the website I tried calling the United States contact number and a foriener answered. I got the story that his secretary quit on him while he was in Benin and when he left New York he left all contact with friends and ex-girlfriend behind. So he has no one to contact to help him and when I asked him if he wanted me to contact his mother or sister he pretty much yelled at me and told me she has a heart condition and by me contacting her would put her in the hospital. He claims his mother lives in Calumet City, IL and his sister in Canada. I ever tried to find a Mrs. Hammond in Calumet City, IL no luck.
The second or third week is when he started asking me to send him money so he can get a better hotel room. Oh, and he told me his sell phone was stolen and all his information for any contacts is on that phone. He's still contacting me now asking if his clients can send me a check so I can deposit it and transfer the money to him via MoneyGram. I've never even heard of MoneyGram. I have been off and on dating sites and I have never been in this situation before. He just keeps saying he loves me and he wants to be with me for the rest of our lives.
I believe this scammer is also known as: Alan Armstrong, Mack Jones Roger Clay, alan Burnie and Milton Gowan.
