Name: Raven Philips



Other Comments:
Just putting pics up, since I've searched here for her and not found her. I've been targeted a lot lately, and I'm not sure why. I guess my profile up on dating sites, looking for legit women, has only turned into a sham fiesta. I'll upload more as I get them. If I can help you all as much as you all have helped me in the past, it'd be nice. Thanks all.

P.S. She/he/it found me by using a free Christian dating site called Claims to be in Sumner, Washington. I've looked around online and here, and I've found nothing to discredit her, but I just know she's one of them.

IM Text 2 - from 3 days later in the next post. Keep in mind everything I say to her is a lie to draw her out. I learned my lesson the first time with one of these girls. I never sent money, but I believed her (the first girl) so now I just am going to have fun messing with them as much as possible.

Again, all the info posted here by me, from me in these IM's are FAKE - just like she is!

IM Text Part 2, 3 days Later. Again, all of my info I say to her is FAKE. Now she's falling for it.

sweet_raven171: hi there
sweet_raven171: how are you doing?
sweet_raven171: can we talk?
compteck2001: Don't buzz me
compteck2001: yes, we can talk
sweet_raven171: where are you now?
compteck2001: Home.
sweet_raven171: i got a call from a lawyer yesterday, he said something abt my dad's inheritance
compteck2001: Yeah?
sweet_raven171: but he told me he is in Nigeria and i will have to go to nigeria to confirm it
compteck2001: You know I'm wealthy right?
sweet_raven171: wealthy???
compteck2001: Yes
sweet_raven171: did you tell me anything abt that??
sweet_raven171: what does it mean?
compteck2001: It means I'm rich
sweet_raven171: anyway, i am not bothered about that
sweet_raven171: i just want to ask if you know anything about nigeria
compteck2001: Nope. Don't want to bother with it
sweet_raven171: bother with what?
compteck2001: Nigeria
sweet_raven171: why?
compteck2001: Because I have millions of dollars invested in capital gains, interests and stocks in the USA. Nigeria never crossed my mind
sweet_raven171: ok
sweet_raven171: i only want your advice, do you think i shld travel there?
compteck2001: No
compteck2001: It's not safe
sweet_raven171: but it involves my dad's inheritance and he told me it worth over 10million us dollars
compteck2001: If you're worried about money don't be. If you and I get together I have way more than 10 million dollars to take care of us
sweet_raven171: ok
sweet_raven171: or maybe i shld ask the lawyer to email you and tell you about it
compteck2001: No
compteck2001: I don't need to know
sweet_raven171: ok
compteck2001: Why would I bother with 10 million, when I have over 300 million?
sweet_raven171: hmmm
sweet_raven171: so, how are you doing now?
compteck2001: I'm good. Just got back last night from a trip to New York
sweet_raven171: oh what trip?
compteck2001: Investor meeting in the city
sweet_raven171: oh i c
sweet_raven171: so, where did we end our last discussion?
compteck2001: I asked you to get a webcam. Did you get one?
sweet_raven171: i ordered for one online, it will be delivered to me by thursday afternoon
compteck2001: Cool
compteck2001: Got any more pictures yet?
sweet_raven171: hmm, two
sweet_raven171: and u??
compteck2001: I don't usually take pictures of myself no. I gave you everything I had.
compteck2001: Nice, that's all you have?
compteck2001: As I said, I have a lot of money. I can get any woman I want. I'm looking for a good woman who will give me what I need
sweet_raven171: i understand you
compteck2001: Do you really understand how much money I have?
sweet_raven171: and who said i am after your money
sweet_raven171: do you want to buy love for your self??
compteck2001: I didn't, I am telling you
compteck2001: Honey, if I want to buy love I can get an escort anytime I want lol. That's not what I'm after
sweet_raven171: dont tell me pls
sweet_raven171: all i want is your true love
compteck2001: I grew up poor, was poor for a long time until I was about 26 years old. I hit the jackpot in the New England lottery, won over 50 million dollars. I invested most of it, and now 7 years later I have more money than I could ever spend
sweet_raven171: oh that is very nice for you
compteck2001: I thought so
compteck2001: Do me a favor
sweet_raven171: what?
compteck2001: Forget about your dad's inheritance. Don't talk to the lawyer, and don't have the lawyer contact me.
sweet_raven171: i understand, but the money is enough to make me who i want to be
compteck2001: I can do that for you too
sweet_raven171: hmmm, you cant, you cant do anything for me till we meet or get married
compteck2001: Then let's meet
sweet_raven171: how far is my state from yours
compteck2001: Where are you again?
sweet_raven171: i am in sumner, washington and u??
compteck2001: New Hampshire
sweet_raven171: ok
compteck2001: You're on the other side of the United States. Would be like a 6 hour flight or so
sweet_raven171: can you pay for my ticket?
compteck2001: That's the problem I have with most women. They see that I have a lot of money and then they stop making an effort to love me. If you want to have my love, you have to come here on your own
sweet_raven171: ok, i will try but i have taken a risk before and regretted it
compteck2001: I can promise you that you will be happy if you do it
sweet_raven171: ok
compteck2001: Do you want to meet me?
sweet_raven171: of course
compteck2001: I like you
sweet_raven171: thanks
compteck2001: So when do you want to come here?
sweet_raven171: i will plan my schedules and let you know
compteck2001: ok
compteck2001: Take more pictures too
sweet_raven171: ok
sweet_raven171: and also u
compteck2001: that's the last 2 I have
sweet_raven171: can't you take some others?
compteck2001: I don't take many pictures of myself. I hate my own pics
sweet_raven171: why? but you are not looking bad
compteck2001: The only pictures I have are from some of my trips
compteck2001: I usually go alone, so no one can take my pic
sweet_raven171: that's too bad
compteck2001: There's some
compteck2001: One thing you never do, is give your camera to some stranger and ask them to take your pic. They steal it and run away
sweet_raven171: you mean steal your camera??
compteck2001: yes
compteck2001: so I don't have a stranger hold my camera
sweet_raven171: why would they do that?
compteck2001: Cause it's a nice camera lol
sweet_raven171: you are funny
compteck2001: You see my travel pictures?
sweet_raven171: yea
compteck2001: Here's a pic from 2 years ago it's my ex-girlfriend and we're in England
sweet_raven171: oh i c
sweet_raven171: why did you left her
compteck2001: She wouldn't give me what I needed from her
sweet_raven171: what?
compteck2001: She was selfish. Did not want to give me what I needed.
sweet_raven171: what exactly
compteck2001: Well, I love sex and she didn't want it. All she wanted to do was spend money and travel, not give me children or sex. I want a family.
sweet_raven171: that's too bad of her
compteck2001: yes
compteck2001: Do you want a family?
sweet_raven171: of course
compteck2001: Do you like sex?
sweet_raven171: yes
compteck2001: So you don't mind if we have it all the time?
sweet_raven171: as long as there is love between us
compteck2001: of course

She also write me as faith gibson, and she told me that she comes from Liverpool (UK).
First I dont realize it, but if I becam the 5 Email in there she wrote that She want meet me, I wrote her yes we can meet us in Liverpool. In the next email she has sent only a turgid love text and is not discussed in the meeting.
Since I was taken aback because the text has acted like a poem depreciated and is not discussed on a meeting.
After I typed a few lines of text in Google, I found out that it is a poem that is used by fraudsters.
So you were right with your suspicions. They also sent me some of the same photos.
