How to make money with an online dating site
He phoned me on video call that's why I thought he was real. Oh dear, I'm talking to a man claiming to be an engineer from the UK and he is asking me for money to pay for a shipment to my home here in the states. He's really laying it on thick with the guilt trip. Comments and user names are part of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) public records system, and user names also are part of the FTC’s computer user records system.
I feel like the biggest red flag for me is the fact that he claims that he has no family nor friends who can pay for the shipment. We may routinely use these records as described in the FTC’s Privacy Act system notices.
My sister=in-law fell into the Military Romance scam through Facebook and was bilked for over ,000.00 until we realized what was happening. I was scammed by a Richard Enzo Duvan who posed as a representative of Kames Capital Investment International of Edinburgh, Scotland. I was scammed out of a lot of money which I’ll never get back. I did a background and a reverse phone number and found a second name - maybe he is the scammer with several aliases and other phone numbers - and the Facebook picture and the Facebook name are all fake along with the kids' names and their emails..
I asked her for a photo of her new online love and when it arrived it was a photo of a retired military man that apparently they use over and over again. In researching, I discovered he had used the same "lingo" on a woman in Michigan. I was very fortunate that Money Gram had been watching and indicated to me there had been some fraud in the area(?
She said NO as she was just waiting for something to happen. Sure he was going to need more info from her, but it didn't go any further. I did not give l don’t have money at all I have just been contacted on Instagram by a mark collins. Its only been 2 days that I have been talking to him. The first time I ran into one was on instagram and we moved over to hangouts he said he was a Dr on deployment to Libya. The guy I had been corresponding with was a scammer. Come to find out he was from Nigeria and he was a scammer. I have run into so many of these people on Instagram. They use broken English and can't spell a bit. I met this guy on match, quit similar to your, just story change a little, he said he is British born, moved to Denmark, then came to US with parents.
And I'm sure most of the emails are simply form letters to be used with however many women he is using at the same time. He goes by mark_collins111 he has a picture of a young guy with a white shirt on. When I asked where he works, he said he works for nobody, he owns his construction company. I google it, none found in Butler, NJ I can't find his name anywhere and didn't match, anyway his story was really convincing that he bit at Las vegas, for ,000,000 construction foster housing, that needs to build in Dubai from United Arab Emirate.
But since he still worked for Capvest until his resignation was accepted, he couldn't have his name on the new company. Never met the woman and was going on 35 days of just emails, videos (never said my name) and pictures. Mad at me for not paying for him to return to the states, did I mention I paid for his 00 plane ticket and the day before he was supposed to come home, someone stole his passport?!! Now the hotel has thrown him out on the streets because he can’t pay his room, I offered to pay that by credit card too, they won’t accept it?! He calls me everyday, he has a british accent, has a beautiful voice. He said he was living in Germany before his deployment and he was coming to get me and marry me.
His mom has just died but they are supposedly from Greece. I don't have money I just paid my contractor the deposit to paint my house.Worked for Capvest Capital--his mom was Italian and just passed in Hamburg in late Feb!!!!!! This sounds dangerous to me Was his name Martins Jayden Sparks!!! But he didn't get a cent from me, but he sure tried. Winbell - I forgot to say that I tried the reverse photo trick but the photo(s) that he used were not in any data base collection. But remember the person who is talking to you with 'that' picture is not him.. He speaks with an accent and claims to be an engineer doing construction in Indonesia. These are evil people who prey on unhappy women and take advantage of them. Had me believing him for a while that he was real and not a fake. and have a son in a boarding school, he’s from Sydney but he’s been residing in Scotland, he’s parents are all dead and he supports orphanages .He then quit his job as a fund manager for Capvest and then went to Dubai to meet some oil investors and then wanted to start up his own investment company. Thanks I just had the same scam performed on me from a woman from e Harmony who said that her name was Liliana N. Had that same story but I did send full name and address but just sent them an email with your story so I am hoping that this scam can finally stop. Says he is wealthy Although he asked her to pick him up at the airport in Newark on this Saturday. My scammer’s pics and phone #’s and other information does not come up either, very sexy voice, promises are every woman’s dream, needs medical attention but already owes the hospital so needs $ to take trip to the city to reach the hospital, $ to pay for previous expenses plus new charges he’ll incur! But his screen shot showing he’s using Indonesia XL mobile network which he said he got stuck in this country, stranded and hungry... Very charming, tells you everything you need to hear and more. When I told him that he's fake he got upset and said that he's fed up of me humiliating and insulting him. Gradually the communication became infrequent because I wasn't giving him any more money. in 2 weeks he professed his love and wants to marry you.But the Army’s Criminal Investigative Service (CIS) says that the military doesn’t charge servicemembers to go on leave, get married, communicate with their family, go online, or feed and house themselves on deployment. But I kept all of our emails, texts, transactions - his so called mugging where money I sent was taken and his wrist were slit. I only wish there was something I could do to protect others from him on the dating websites or in general TO Winbell - I have copied and pasted emails, posts, pictures, messenger texts, voice mail message with voice and I have them available if FTC or any law enforcement agency wants them.We have also heard of scammers re-using servicemembers’ photos again and again, so it can be helpful to do some online research on the love interest’s name, photos, and details to check the story out. I have fake documents, plane ticket, field trip forms, hospital invoice and United Kingdom contact and bank address and account number.
As lonely divorcees or widows, we are perfect prey. Be skeptical and don't get wound up - cause it hurts emotionally, too.
