EXAMPLES OF EMAILS FROM SCAMMER:


Hello xxxxx,

How is your day going sweets? Thanks for the beautiful pics; I guess I am getting addicted to my email because the first thing I did when I got to work was to check my laptop for an email from you and there it was so I thought of taking my time to write you back. My name should be changed to smiley face because that is what I have been doing since I opened up my email. I get a good glow on my face just waking up to read from you. I knew something was missing since I haven’t smiled all morning till now,lol. I was almost late for work this morning, I woke up late, I think I am becoming restful again, maybe I could sense something good ahead of us. Honestly, 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. We have worked so hard and attained 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 NEVER 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, but I don’t mind,lol. Please tell me about your ideology of life my dear. It would be lovely to hear the voice behind this emails so I am also ready to take this to another level,let me hear the voice of an angel. Be warned I have been told I have an unsorted accent, but sexy,lol. Please provide me with a number to reach you on.

I have attached some of my pictures along.

Loving thoughts,

Andrew
Good morning xxxxx,

How was your night? I need to be at work but just needed to touch base with you before heading to work. Thanks for the lengthy mail which I enjoyed reading, I should be rounding up the project in about a week plus from today; it’s good to know you are having a good time with your family. I moved from CA thought I mentioned it before to you though, yes Linda my late wife happen to be the mother of my son. Thanks for sharing more info with me about your mom that is so sweet of you, I do go to church and I am a Christian. Thanks for sharing more about yourself with me, you are doing something special to me in your own way and I like that, lol. I mean after all these years; I never would have thought I might not have the possibilities again of having my dream woman, my partner, my best friend and co pilot. I'm talking about fate here - when feelings are so powerful it's as if some force beyond your control is guiding you to someone who can make you happy beyond your wildest dreams. It doesn’t scare me anyways because truly, Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end. The inevitable truth is, if it is meant to be, our hearts will find each other when we meet. And if our hearts melt together so will our bodies and souls. Then every word and every touch will fuel our passion flame. I will be yours, you will be mine, and we will be one.

Haven to wake up every morning by 6 for work; working from then till late at night, yet being able to be distracted by this woman. I have over 300 labourers here, both skilled and locals, yet all could notice a new glow on my face. LOL. Nelson; a colleague of got married almost two years now. He found his woman on the net and to be sincere, he inspired us. I would love to find my woman first, then building a home would start from there. I am being true to my feelings, as my old friend would say, Never question if you are in love or not, because if you were you wouldn't need to ask. So the best of men, would accept what they feel without questions, because truly, Love and death cant be escaped, no one can tell, when, how, or where. It is never too early or too late.LOL.

What is more important to you the love you share, the memories you have or the lover? Give love a chance to swallow you up. Don't just think it will happen in a instant, it will surprise you before you know it, but it will be the most rewarding experience you will ever have.

If you are as open minded and simple as me, I can promise you that the sky would be the limit.

Loving thoughts,

Andrew

Morning Beautiful,
How are you doing? Your mail did put a smile on my face even though I am going through a rough time. It seems these Arabs are putting foreign contractor through “HELL” I really don’t know how words could probably explain what I’m going right mow cos it is giving me a headache. This wasn’t suppose to come out but if I’m going to be in a relationship with you, the list I could do is be honest and try not to hide anything from you no matter what may be. I’m suppose to have my face filled with smile but instead it is filled with sadness, we had an agreement with these Arabs that our payment for the project should be remitted before the project is completed but it seems they are taking a different turn as it is now which is really upsetting me at this point. Can you believe my payment was actually released by the National Bank of Abu Dhabi as agree but a stop order was issued on the payment so basically now my payment is pending. The Arab Government is requesting a 3% tax on the amount before it will be set for immediate released into my account. This was a total shock to me and it came when I list expected. The 3% tax amounted to US 360, 000 and I do not have up to that amount cos I did put most of my funds in this project and I’m glad everything is going on well except for the tax amount which is really bothering me now and it will affect me a whole lot if the payment is being called back, with the help of my colleagues a total of US 265, 000 has been raised but leaving a balance US 95, 000 to complete the amount and I have a limited time in sorting this out or my funds will be called back and I definitely do not want that to happen which was why I also tried applying for a loan at their local banks here in the UAE but was refused because I am a non-residence and with what just happened to the American Ambassador; I am scared and don’t want anything bad to happen to me while here until I get back home. I don’t know how you will take this and do not mean to upset you in anyway but I will honest and tell you now that I’m not trying to take advantage of our relationship and have no intentions what so ever to so such now or in the future and that I assure you. I know this might not be the right time to ask for a favour but I have no other option that to drop my pride and go ahead to ask anyway, with the hope that it doesn’t get you upset. Please sweets; if there is anyway you can be of assistance to me please let me know for I could really use a helping hand at this point and you can be rest assured that I will pay you back in full which I’m willing to put a writing for your perusal. I do hope you understand my situation. Thank you for giving me a reason to believe in love again, weather or not you are able for the tax doesn’t matter cos it sure does not make me love you any less. I hope this does not spoil your day; I need to get to work for we are supposed to round up pretty soon.
Stay safe ok? So I will meet you in good health.
Loving thoughts,
Andrew

I'd like to share the last email that the scammers sent me posing as Andrew Berndtson, in case it helps someone else in the future. Luckily, I Googled his name and found this site & others... I was suspicious as he didn't answer any of my Q's & due to some of the content of this email:

Morning Beautiful,

How are you? I got your email and I am glad you did write me. My flight was great; can you believe I was actually thinking about you while on the plane? Lol. I thought of using this medium in telling you about me. My name is Andrew Berndtson. My dad is of Swedish origin while my mom is an Ireland woman though lived most of her life with my dad in Stockholm, Sweden which is where I was born and raised. I am the only child of both my parents; my dad was an international business man who travels a lot while my mom was a house wife. My mom never talked much about her family but did make quite a lot of friends around the neighbourhood while we were still in Stockholm and everyone liked her cos she is down to earth woman. My mom was actually an orphan whose only family were close friends, when she first met my dad there was something about the man that no woman could ever resist, sometimes she says she sees same in me, lol. During my father's global movement, I was left to live alone with my mom. I did most of my schooling in Sweden; I even went to Stockholm University but later left to study Civil Engineering, with specialization in mining and Geotechnical Engineering in university of calgary Alberta; where I got the first degree and later moved on to join my folks in the UK where my dad later relocated to with my mom; Tottenham to be precise. I did like it there though cos of their British accent which I thought sounded sexy, lol. We lost my dad to stroke in 2002. My mom said that only thing making her smile right now is that she has me and I do remind her so much of my him.

About my job, I am a Civil Engineer; I do mostly contract jobs which can last for a particular period. I have worked with about 4 different companies including Chevron; So far my job has been going on pretty good. I have a group of colleagues I work with as well, will tell you more about them later. Let me explain to you what it is that I really do for a living. I design things like roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, or water supply and sewage systems. It’s not an easy job though because I must consider many factors in the designs, from the costs to making sure the structure will stay intact during bad weather. Many civil engineers manage people and projects. A civil engineer may oversee a construction site or be a city engineer. Others may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. There are many specialties within civil engineering, such as structural, construction, environment and even transportation. Civil engineers usually work in areas where there is lots of manufacturing and businesses. I often work at construction sites. Sometimes we work in places that are far away from cities. Some times I tend to travel out to execute a job. Hope I am not boring you too much with my job thing, sorry about that.

More about me; I'm real easy going, extremely patient, I enjoy music (especially Country, slow rock, gospel), sports, movies and life. I enjoy a good meal with good conversation, my favourite colour happens to be blue. I love Red wine and my favourite food is Chinese; not really a big fan of sushi cos I like my food cooked, lol. A romantic evening for me would be a quiet meal at a nice restaurant and an easy walk hand in hand. I am passionate, loving, respectful, open minded, honest, man that appreciate a lady of character and integrity. I don't consider myself to be high maintenance but appreciates quality.

I moved to Spring Lak, MI after I lost my wife to cancer 6 years back which is basically the reason why I moved up here cos I just couldn’t live in the house cos it brings back memories. Sorry it wasn’t included on my profile; my apologies. The present project I am working on happens to my last on the field but will be working from home while my men do the field operations. I think I really have gotten to the height cos I embraced work for so long trying to get over my late wife but realized it was time for me to move on. I just want to spend the rest of my life enjoying the fruit of my labour. I just want a woman who would be my best friend and everything, someone who understands the value of a good smile, someone whom we would still love each other more as the days pass by, even when we can’t make love anymore.

I will be looking forward to reading from you, so we can chat and get more acquainted.

Your turn!

Andrew

I wish that I had have had the sense to do this search before I fell for this guy -- exactly the same spin as above. I gave him 'on loan' due to 'those Arabs' etc -- $85k, for which I myself took out loans. A very painful life lesson for me -- as someone who considers herself worldly-wise.

Thanks for putting this site together.

Same pics as the ones above -- same scenario -- engineer stuck in Dubai, needing to pay the 3% tax etc.

If a scammer started saying that he is from Afghanistan, never entertain. They claim that they are soldiers. Most of their profile said that they are civil engineer or architect. Then they started asking me what do I do for a living. I just said I am a caregiver for the elderly. Never entertain them if they started asking for money or any gifts. Do not buy love. True love cannot be bought with money. They should stop the dating site to stop the scamming games of love. I wasted 50 dollars just to be a member of this dating site. Not to mention my time and my peace of mind. Yes, these scammers are heartless. All they care is money. Again, never buy love. I would rather buy a dog than buy someone's love. I have a new puppy now and this puppy will love me for who I am. Oh I never forgot the scammer thought that I am Chinese. Then, I realized that Chinese women must be rich ha? So, this guy is up for rich Chinese ladies. Well, I will never change my nationality just to find my soul mate. I love who I am. I will never trade me for any nationality of some sort. Most of all I will never buy love. Please be careful. I am glad because of my love for my dogs. I spent my money on my pets rather than for people I have not seen in person. This dating site has to end. More innocent victims will become victims if the site will continue. Just go to the church and find your soul mate there. Amen

Justin Hyaylock I got my fingers burnt through Match.com, I thought I met someone decent for once & I fell for all his emails as above stories all the what he told me is so familiar. I stupidely sent him £700 but when he asked me to lend him a further £1250 at what ever means my head & not my heart suddenly kicked in. These people have no morals they don't care how they get there money & what cost it has to the other person. I'm so humiliated, destroyed & to be honest I even don't know if I could get back on the dating seen. :-(
