About Him and Who He's Looking For:
I am genuine, down to earth, caring, compassionate, loyal, faithful and honest to a fault. I am playful, affectionate, sensual, passionate and an excellent kisser! ;) I am spontaneous, adventurous, and try to enjoy every minute of my wonderful life. I am happy with who I am and am completely comfortable in my own skin. I am not clingy or needy and will not smother you. I believe in accepting someone for who they are and NEVER trying to change them. I don't NEED, but rather, WANT someone special to share all of life's experiences with, good or bad. It's the simple things that make me the happiest; a tender touch, a passionate kiss, a stolen glance, a sweet surprise note or text, the beauty of nature, the sound and smell of rain, the kindness of strangers and the unconditional love of my dog. I love to laugh and to make others laugh. I don't take myself too seriously and can definitely laugh at myself. I am NOT into drama, am very low maintenance and don't play games (except the fun kind!). I am a very positive person and always try to look for the good in all people and situations. I'm far from perfect, but I always try to be the best person that I can possibly be.

I am looking for a woman who can be my partner, my lover and my best friend; someone I can have an intelligent conversation with, who can make me laugh until I cry and knows how to just lend an ear when I need one. I want someone who is spontaneous, adventurous, affectionate, passionate, warm, compassionate and an excellent kisser (do you notice a theme here?) Kissing is the most amazing form of intimacy and bad kissing would be a definite deal-breaker for me. I like a woman with a great sense of humor who enjoys being a little goofy sometimes (and lets me do the same!) I'd love for you to be able to freely express your opinions and not be afraid to express your emotions. I dig a little PDA so don't be afraid to plant a big kiss on me in public when the spirit moves you! .Trust, honesty and open communication are extremely important to me and a I believe a great friendship is the foundation for all successful relationships. Chemistry is EXTREMELY important and something that must come naturally. I want to feel butterflies when I'm with someone and when I'm thinking of them when they're not around. If you are really interested, please send me a message; winks WILL NOT get my attention. I may not be the one for you, but I wish every one of you the best and hope that you all find what you are looking for!

Our story:
Contact started with him winking at me on Match.com, followed by an email and then almost immediately taking the conversation to personal email and Yahoo Messenger. Claimed he just joined Match for 3 day weekend; has never been on a dating site before and that I was the only one who sparked his interest. (Interesting if he had never been on Match.com before that he would have written in his profile that 'winks' will not get his attention. How would he know what a wink was then?) Anyway, proceeds to tell me his story sad, sad story.... Wife died of cancer 6 years ago leaving him to raise his then 2 year old son (Ben), who is now 8. To top it off, tragically, both of his parents were killed in a car accident last year on the way to dinner to celebrate his dad's birthday. He misses them so much. Thankfully, he and Ben survived. He's an only child, no family; just him and Ben. Works as an architect/designer designing log homes, residential and commercial building. Says that he bids for projects around the globe; has to finance them on his own until the project is complete and then he receives payment. Right now he's working on a 6 week bridge construction project in Nigeria that ends in 2 weeks and he'll be back home in Georgia. (Doesn't quite tie in with the type of building projects a residential and commercial log home architect/designer would build on.) But he sent me a couple of pictures of a bridge and a picture of his $2.5 million dollars (fraudulent) contract. (Of course, I did not ask to see any pictures, they were just offered, to provide legitimacy to his story.) Sad story continues, because his parents died and he has no family, he had to bring little Ben along with him to Nigeria. He's hired a tutor for Ben while he works.

Gorgeous photos and says all the right things. Of course, when you Google to find his parents obituary or any newspaper report of the accident, none exist. When you Google his name, Andrew Hughes, Alpharetta, GA, there are no records for someone with that name in
Alpharetta. When you do a reverse email look up, his email is from California. His ad says he has a dog but he must have forgotten about that when we were chatting because then it was just him and Ben. One of the pics he sent showed where a little girl has been cut out of the picture. (You could see an earring and scarf.) He must have forgotten that when he said he had a son. Strangely, he labeled his pictures Construction 1, Construction 2, Construction 7, Bridge 1. (Why would you label your own pictures?) But the best pic of all was his contract (why he would feel the need to take a picture of his contract and label it My Contract? That's odd in an of itself)...but you can see that the font doesn't match, the lines don't match; there is a signature overlap. It is clearly fraudulent. When you Google Lagos Nigeria Bridge Dating Scam, his story is the same.

I post so others will be aware. He is not the only man with a sob story. Be suspect of everyone. An honest person will understand and not be offended. A scammer will tell you you're wrong, want to explain 'oh Baby, you have to trust me if there is going to be a future for us', and then they will bolt.

Thanks for reporting this scam,it is indeed a classic West-African scam scenario with Widowed white male that works in Nigeria as a Designer and sending templates with endless and dying love .The photos are stolen and the real man has nothing to do with any scams!

. Claimed he just joined Match for 3 day weekend; has never been on a dating site before and that I was the only one who sparked his interest.


All scammers says they have just joined a dating site and are new into dating

The photos are reported as scam before ,i am sorry you met a scammer online.
