Other Comments:
His name is Lawrence David Dale and I met him on According to him, his birthday is October 18, 1962. He began texting through 2 phone numbers. 1-856-513-2937 & 301-200-0022. Email addresses, Prior to this, I have not heard from him for several weeks and quite suspiciously he stopped texting me when I told him about another scammer that I had met on On January 28, 2013, he starts texting me again saying that he did not receive any of my texts since he was in the UK. He says that he is a Pipeline engineer with a graduate degree in Marine Metallurgical Engineering. He went to Melbourne, Australia for undergraduate school and his second degree was from Dublin Ireland but later he told me it was from Oxford in the UK. Later changed the story to that he went to Junior High in Dublin Ireland and college at the University College of Dublin, UK. First he tells me that he has lived in Maryland for about 2 months in Ellicott City. Later I asked him about this and he told me that he worked in Texas for 9 months and was staying at the Tremont hotel at St Paul Street in Baltimore. He never really rented or bought his own house here in the states and work brought him to the Maryland because that was the location of the presentation for the job was held. He said that he maintained the BP oil rig in Alaska for 5 months when he first came to the states.
He signed up for Match while living in Ellicott City when he lost the contract. He tells me that he is originally from Australia and moved to the UK after his brother moved there. He has worked in Africa, Italy, Holland (Shell Petroleum for 8 years and stationed in Holland for 3 years) before the UK. He is working in the US on a work visa and has 3 years left on it and says that he has a friend with British Petroleum who can give him an extension. He gets a job in Alaska on Endicott Island for Exxon, leaving on February 1, 2013. As we talk there are more inconsistencies with multiple people (accountant, niece, pick up people) involved but many actually all be him. Especially true for the accountant since I am talking to him and he tells me the accountant sent me an email and I didn’t receive an email and all of a sudden the email shows up.
Also, says he has a brother who died several months ago and send a picture of himself with his brother. Also, says that he cannot access internet so asks you to access his account to send money for supplies. the account is fake. He also says he has a niece, Jenny, who wants to talk with you.
