i have been scammed over the past month by what seems to be a well known scammer that is also posted above. i met the person or persons in friendscout 24 in which after watching the site, i realized that the site was still active a week later after being told that she did not need it anymore. so i waited until i found them online again and offered a chat in yahoo. i then met a totally different person, and this time from the USA. at that point i started getting suspicious. finally today i found out how to check and IP and it is registered to none other than Michael Komla Nfodzo, Emmanuel Antwi Kwarteng, and Daniel Adjei Asante. believe it or not. the scammers are using the name Claudette Moore and have the E-mail addresse claudettemoore11@yahoo.com.

KENNY THOMPSON
Hello, I did a search on Kwarteng because it is in the original IP address of a scammer named Kenny Thompson, the IP is the same. I believe this to be a huge ring of men and women scanners, I will copy in my original email IP from KENNY THOMPSON.

Kenny was on True Begnnings dating site, pretending to be from Toledo OH. A 58 year old widower. We talked for a couple of weeks about the identity loss when losing a spouse and how we both felt like we would never be whole again. Kenny then was to do a huge project for the United Nations Development Programme in Ghana, going to Hong Kong first to inspect the computer shipment to be shipped to Accra. He claimed to be a database securities engineer. Self employed.

He had said he wanted to meet me before he left but I didn't have time... Now I wonder what would have happened if I had found time... He even sent me itineraries from Toledo to Hong Kong and then Hong Kong to Ghana. Later a travel agent told me these were just proposed itineraries that were never booked as tickets.

His first request came for money for the customs office to get his shipment out of customs. That made sense to me - he was out of cash as he had been traveling for so long out of the country - so I wired him money. Then a couple days later he needed more money to transport the equipment by truck to the site - the trucker would only accept cash. - That also made sense so I sent more. It bothered me that I had to put make the wire payable to their driver Oscar Baoteng, because WU had to have a local driver’s license for them to pick up the case. Then for the next several weeks we just Imp and emailed and wrote love letters to each other. Planning our future together. I really fell in love with this guy. He was always grateful for the loan promising to repay the loan as soon as he got back to the states. He even had me call his son in NJ one night while we were IMing. He was very sweet with the same broken English as his 'father'. He gave me advice on handling a difficult situation at work. He quoted bible verses and immediately gave me a scripture to read for particular problems as the occurred. I thought he was beautiful, had a beautiful heart. He loved the fact that I told him my personal angel was accompanying him on his journey. He felt so comfortable that my angel was there to protect him.....

All in all there were more delays - he had to do one more thing on the project. I sent money to him 4 times. He was coming home - I even made hotel reservations for him. Then the horrible car accident where a young girl was run over by his driver and his passport was seized. It was a long and elaborate story that went on and on and it all seemed plausible.

These guys and gals, apparently, are very good at their game. I fell for it and I'm a very intelligent older woman. I can't believe I was so eager to overlook all of the cracks in his story for the opportunity to be loved again.

I then found out about IP addresses and records searches. Nothing checked out. This IP I have copied in was from his first email - Ghana - not Toledo. This guy would spend hours on the internet with me - call me - send me poems, which I later found on Lovingyou.com - every one of them.

My friends and family tried to warn me - but of course I was being careful..... I lost over 2500 total between wires and phone bills. What I lost the most is my self esteem and the feeling that I will ever find anyone who will love me for who I really am. I've been in a deep depression that I'm not sure I will ever recover from.

This is obviously a large network of thieves.

This man, if that is what you want to call him, is a very very practised scammer with some very detailed 'research' behing what he does. My experience is very much as that of the woman above ...

I met 'Kenny Thompson' on a Christian Dating website. Very soon we were emailing and then on Yahoo every day. He said he was widowed recently and soon professed his real attraction to my profile and me. He quoted Scripture, even 'prayed' with me twice on the phone. He sounded Spanish which fitted in with his profile. he sent me a dozen red roses and chocolates before Christmas.
He must have a 'roving chip' because I checked out the numbers he gave me for Toledo. All checked out, including the American voice on the recorded message for his home. He sent photos of his home, including himself at work and his Alsatian dog, 'Timmy'. Soon he was 'travelling' to Seattle to bid for a government supply job and his company won it. He phoned me with the news. He then 'travelled' to Hong Kong to continue his work and then on to Ghana to receive the shipment of computers. All the time this was going on he sounded utterly convincing, phoning me, texting me and going online each night. Then he asked for money for the customs . He pretended he was in a panic because his card wouldn't work. he reassured me that the shipment balance would cover all other expenses, including getting to see me in the UK. I decided to take a calculated risk and sent some money, knowing somehow that this wasn't right. However, when I returned home that day, I found out from the Web he was indeed a scammer. I decided, with the support of a friend, to pretend nothing was amiss. For a week, until he asked for more monetary support, I 'played' him on the end of my fishing line. When he asked for more, I told him he slunk on the ground like a snake not a man. He even spoke online two more times, but I persisted in asking for webcam evidence and finally, swearing at me, he gave up.
He hurt me badly and I feel embarassed at being fooled, but he is very skilful. I firmly believe he is part of a much larger syndicate.
