I met man from Brisbane Australia. Named Wayne Harrison who claims he works for Qantas Airline. If this man contacts you via any dating site. Women Run and I mean run real fast. He is only interested in having an affair. He is a true Sociopath! Everything he says is a lie all lies all the time. First warning sign which I ignored was when he sent me a Birthday card. But on the card he put my Address and not his. I completely ignored what was truly a Red Flag. Then I was invited to come and visit Brisbane but only when his wife left on a vacation was I invited. He stated by the way he was in the process of divorcing. I ignored this Red Flag also. If a person is not Divorce and cannot produce legal Divorce papers that you can hold in your hand and check online they filed then run. Second Red Flag. Another major Red Flag was him telling me a month later that he loved me
I was caught in a romance scam for over a year. This person told me they lived in another state but would not call. Money was sent to this person (several thousand dollars, as they told me they were divorced after her ex abandoned her and her daughter). After six months of being lied to this person "came clean" and told me her daughter was living with her aunt in the US and that her ex abandoned her in Nigeria with nothing but her luggage. Said her name is Katie Morgan but had Western Union/Money Gram transfers always sent to others as the banks in Nigeria wouldn't allow transfers to be sent in her name because it wasn't a Nigerian name. Then I was told it had met a lady that she'd became good friends with named Nneka and that I could send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka. That was the final straw and I've since stopped talking to this person and changed my phone number.
We were to meet at the market in his neighborhood. I arrived early and texted him to let me know when he got there, and that I was going to go into one of the other stores. He texted me when he arrived (later than expedited). I came out and waited, but there was no one to be seen. He texted that he had to take a call form his 'boss' and he was terribly sorry. The call would take longer than he intended. I told him I was going to grab a bite to eat, to just let me know when he was available. I finally gave up and told him I was heading home. He said "I'm so sorry". I asked if he saw me. He said 'no'. The next day I didn't hear anything. Again curiosity got the better of me. After a couple of days I said, 'If you'd like to try again, let me know, otherwise just tell me you're not interested and there would be no hard feelings.' I never heard from him again, tho I've seen him active on the site.
I met this guy on the dating site a month a go. He said he is currently deployed i Nigeria. Just the way goes on getting to know each other process asking such questions. He said he was divorsed having a 8 year old daughter. I asked photos & he consistently sent me pictures of him having his face, his daughter & even his brother. He said he ia from SD. His deployment will end this Oct. A ccouple of weeks we lost communication for 8 days, then when he got back he said he needes $655 for internet connection to keep communication. He also mentioned he was just connecting to his roommate's wifi. He call each other everyday via whatsapp (but no video, since he saod is banned). Now he is asking $755 for his vaction papers. I told him i could not raise it. He responded "just try your best so he can come over here & get his fees once he is on vacation". I informed his that US ARMY vaction papers has no cost at all, then he stated "would you think i lie". He wanted me to send money to his commanders info. I said i cannot, he gave me a bitcoin code rather.
Of course, some people are just shy or are nervous about meeting people that they&rsquo ve met online this isn&rsquo t anything out of the ordinary (it&rsquo s also possible that they&rsquo re trying to avoid getting caught by a spouse Ashley Madison: What Happens Now We Know You're A Cheater Ashley Madison: What Happens Now We Know You're A Cheater The Ashley Madison dating site was recently hacked by hackers who threatened to leak the entire database unless the site closed. This week, the database has been leaked. Are your indiscretions about to become public? Read More ). However, repeated excuses at the last minute are a definite warning sign. Some scammers will use similar excuses for avoiding phone conversations, though many will talk to you on the phone before reeling you in for the scam.
If they ask you for money, run. That&rsquo s almost a sure sign that you&rsquo re talking to a scammer. The most common reasons that they give for needing money are not being able to afford a passport, visa, other travel documents, or plane tickets (often to come see you) an emergency stay in the hospital that requires a huge sum of money getting robbed while traveling or not being able to access their money from abroad. There&rsquo s a huge variety of reasons that you could get. The point isn&rsquo t that the reason for needing money is strange it&rsquo s that they&rsquo re asking you for money at all.
This is the big one. If the person you&rsquo re talking to is who they say they are, they almost certainly will not ask you for money or financial details. &ldquo How much money do you make?&rdquo is not a question that a sincere person is likely to ask on a first date. Asking for any other financial information where you bank, anything about your credit cards, how much you have in savings should be a big warning sign. Online dating websites aren&rsquo t the most secure Ashley Madison Leak No Big Deal? Think Again Ashley Madison Leak No Big Deal?

However this is a far more serious issue than has been portrayed in the press, with considerable implications for user safety.

Beware of a scammer using the name Katie Morgan claiming to live in Orlando Florida and has a daughter named Vera. She lives in Lagos Nigeria and may have you send her money through another person via Western Union or MoneyGram. She may eventually ”come clean" with you admitting she lives in Ikeja Lagos Nigeria and has a friend named Nneka and tells you you can send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka because the banks there won't allow her to receive money using her "actual" name. This person will swear her undying love and may refer to you as her "King". If you say you're done with her she'll say she's going to commit suicide. May even tell you she's either in the hospital or just got out of the hospital.
Then they choose one of two approaches. They either advise that their employer pays them with Money Orders and they can't cash them in Nigeria or are having trouble cashing them. Then they convince their soul mates to bank them into their bank account and then wire them the money via Western Union. They are often told to keep some of the money for their trouble [which helps to build trust and also helps make them an accessory to the crime!].
I'm in contact with a orthopaedic doctor, who tells me his in Ukraine, we've been chatting every day for some time now. He claims to have two sons, firstly he asked me for iTunes card so he could communicate with his boys, i was stupid enough to get him £65 of them, then next UN hadn't delivered supplies, so he was hungry and dirty, he asked for £755, which i said i would try and get but never. Then last night he said could i get £655 because supplies still not arrived. He constantly tells me how much i mean to him, but don't they all? Since joining a dating site, think I've had more scammers than hot dinners.
I chat with him on viber, what should I do?
In 7566, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming &ldquo industry&rdquo was worth over $55 million, but it&rsquo s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate. People are often ashamed to come forward and admit that they&rsquo ve been duped. It&rsquo s not a good feeling to have been taken advantage of, and a scheme that&rsquo s so obvious in hindsight is even harder to admit to.
The profiles of online dating scammers can exhibit some clear signs that something is off you just need to know what to look for. Most scammers choose victims that are older than they are, for example, so if someone who is significantly than you says that they&rsquo re interested, it could be cause for concern. Of course, just because someone is doesn&rsquo t mean that they&rsquo re a scammer it&rsquo s just something to keep in mind.
Sorry for all this situation you are going thru. But 655% sure that person is a con artist , and found you and easy target.
I just received a communication from an wonderful-good looking gay guy from Russia asking me for money, I met him thru a gay site.
Is been three weeks only , not enough time for this ,a friend of mine has a similar story , therefore I do have all the warnings. Needless to say , I didn't believe , so I went thru all the information on the web about gay-scam-fraud ,so after that I decided to call the FBI and report this crook : https:///scams-safety/e-scams
I hope my story will help.

Wow that sounds very much like the man I've been talking met him on
He also asked me for an ITunes card, then last night he asked me for money because he's out at sea working on oil spillages and his contract is at risk because he miscalculated and now they have run out of chemicals. If he doesn't get the money he will lose the contract and not get paid for all his time, efforts and hard work (and will not get paid) as they will reassign the contract elsewhere. I could go on but it sounds like we're taking to the same man..or men who have been trained the same way.
Hi I met a gay man on gay Cupid he asked me for my e mail address which I have him he wanted to come over and visit me but said he only had 655 dollars so I said i would not send him his air flight personally but I would go through a travel agency which he recommended so I sent 576$ to the travel agents bank using swift bank numbers the travel agency sent me his reservation number and confirmed it then there was another problem he needed travel money so me not thinking I sent another 955$ on the day he was about to fly he said he was in a bad car accident and sent me letter to confirm it which he said his mother scanned for him also phot of him in hospital he said he will change air ticket flight when he gets better I don't know if i have been scammed or not
I got talking to a woman on a dating site. The conversation moved from the site to whatsapp and we have been talking on whatsapp for a long time in the evening and she is sending videos and images of herself. Everything being talked about is normal in the conversation and nothing out of the ordinary. Tuesday she said that she needed to go to casablanca for a meeting about some affairs. Then on wednesday she said that the meeting is not going well and that she needs to send a package to france and could I receive this package. It is at this moment I knew that it was a scam, so now I am playing the scammer. My best line so far has been that I have shown her photo to my friend who is a policeman and he thinks that you are really cute and that he looks forward to meeting you. I have given all her details to the local police.
I just had a go round with this SAME guy. I reported him to as a scammer.
I didn't give in when he asked that I wire money to Turkey and called him out but he continued to try to keep me on the hook. Same story, his credit card not working in Turkey and he needs $$ for machines and materials and as soon as that's settled he'll be coming home to spend a week with me.
He told me he was an architect/specialist contractor and yes got a job in Turkey that he had to leave town immediately for. Had a supposed Turkish cell and whatsapp acct.
I demanded he send me verified ID and he kept coming up with reasons why he could not--company in Turkey keeps their passports until the job is done, he left his driver's license at home. He finally sent me a fake CA driver's license with a bunch of mistakes on it and when I called him out on that he finally stopped trying to keep me on the hook. He popped up on under a new profile and I reported him again.
I think my friend is being groomed by a scammer. Its happening on facebook. On her page she only has pictures of herself and some of my friend that he sent her. She has no friends listed on her page. Its like she has no life. He is too innocent to see it. She is and pretty, he is 98 and bald.. Her name on fb is sandra ashlyn from california city california. I really hope he doesnt get conned out of any money.
I would love to get your opinion on this story. Do you think I have fallen victim to a romantic scam here? Considering the fact that he told me he was falling for me, only not to respond to my messages at all shortly after, but ignoring me completely instead. Or do you think that it might really be the case that the death of a close family member has such an impact on someone that he actually might not be able to communicate by writing just one short sentence in order to let the person he was allegedly falling for know how he is doing?
