Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? The scammers transfer stolen money into the newand then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. Here are some warning s that an online love interest might be a fake.
They ask you to:. Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at ftc. Do you know him? I've been talking to James Williams since last october.
Sounds like your guy. I had a feeling early on he was a scammer but I kept going. He eventually gets into your heart.
Is supposedly from Denmark, knows a lot about it. Has told me conflicting stories along the way. Loves me and has plans for us. He tells me I make him smile. We laugh a lot together. But I have no idea where he really is and I keep telling him that I am going to find him.
I'm having a difficult time letting go of him. And yes asks for cards and then will keep having weird situations come up and asks for money. What is his name. I have been talking to a Marine Engineer. Was a real sweetheart with beautiful words. On rig in the Gulf. Do you have a picture of him?? I see people asking this but no response as to how to get pics shared??
I have been talking to a guy very good looking, marine engineer in the Gulf of Mexico,great with words,sounds the same as you described but has a 21 year old son going to college in California asked me to send his son Yes, I had contact with Liam Anderson. I met him on the dating platform Tinder and was "addicted" to him for 2 months until he needed money.
I have some pictures of him or the person it should be. I did not suffer any financial damage, just emotional. I can only warn every woman against these machinations. Look very carefully what you are getting involved with, never reveal too much personal information before a first meeting! And if the case occurs - do not take it personally, the "victim" does not matter whether you are short, tall, fat, thin, long or short hair, athletic or unathletic, sexy or housewife, etc. I would be interested in seeing his picture also. I didn't meet the person who I got scammed by in a dating place he just appeared out of Facebook.
I have the picture he used. Ive just blocked a marine engineer scammer from Manchester UK. Widower and lost his only son in a car accident. Texting me morning noon and night.
Declaring his undying love in a matter of days. On his way to Australia by boat. Something went wrong with the ships engine and also pirates in the area. Everyone had to abandon ship except him because he was director of operation and had to stsy with cargo. Concerned important documents and the money in his cabin locker that he was going to buy oil drums with would get stolen by pirates. Wanted me to look after money for him and requested my details as some carrier firm could forward them to me and he could get them from me in 2 weeks when he comes to my country.
Don't know what details as i blocked and reported him on fb, messenger and whatsapp without reading any further. Hey Lucylou I believe we spoke to the same man. How long have you been chatting with him and did you get a video chat call?? I got one and it was short and no sound. He said it was because of the Waves and connection. I'm aware of fake videos that can be made to look like anyone.
They are usually short like 10 seconds.
He is about 52 gray hair very nice looking, very attractive crazy handsome blue eyes? Very sweet talker and sends love videos. Says he is a captain on container cargo ship, goes by Eddy James Mike Wayne? He has two children, daughter 17 and son 14 and widowed, his sister watches them while he is out on containership. He told me part of engine broke and they could not move forward without the repair part flown by helicopter At that point I was OUT!!!
We really need to exchange photos, how can we do this?? I appreciate you posting this info as it will help my brain tell my heart he isn't real! I knew things seemed off and no way it could be true. I just kept playing along while enjoying the attention and was waiting for the money transaction question to drop What name did he use with you?
I am going to have some fun with this one before I block. I was given very familiar story. He is a smooth talker, but I think there are a couple people that do the talking on text. Some days the grammar is good and some days its poor, sometimes doesnt feel like I'm talking with the same person.
Wished we could share pics on here. Would be interesting to see if pics match up to stories. They will have to answer to God for the people they hurt, I don't care what their religion is His name is Waktins Tucker. Yes the first name is correct. It is waktins.
Copy and paste? He's definitely a scammer. A pal of mine has had three guys tell her that their on an oil rig on either the Gulf of Mexico or the Mediterrean Sea. He's not real and move on! I can't get her to stop talking to him! I also spoke to Lucas Garcia, he later rocked up same photo different name sorry I can't remember his second fake identity, if I remember I'll let you know I've had 49 scammers, only 3 were successful.
But of course they can't can they they need our magic money to do that. I'm also talking to a guy that claims to be a petroleum engineer, shortly after we started talking he said he was being sent offshore and is now in the gulf of Mexico, hes been there for a little over a month. Anytime I questioned anything dealing with the idea he could be a scammer he would get upset. He ed his " manager " about it, I asked him to send me the s And they seemed fishy as the managers was through gmail, not a company address and the s between them were not professional at all. Sometimes this guys English is really good, other times I have no clue what he's trying to say.
Eventually I found out that he meant that I'd get the money for my credit card debt and then money would be put into my monthly to help me pay other bills.
He didn't want my bank info, but instead wanted to use cashapp I refused to let him do this, told him I would be more comfortable having this conversation after we met. We had the talk 3 times, always the same argument. Then a couple days before Christmas he told me that he had the day off and had a problem that he hoped I could help with. He wanted to update his itunes list but couldn't access his. Which he told me ly that he didnt have a subscription currently.
I asked if he could just go online to do it, or use amazon to purchase a card, or if his manager could help. Conveniently his manager is on vacation, and his payment was denied on apple. I told him no and ever since then hes been moody and says that things are good between us, that we are different, and doesnt get why things will be different when we meet I told him a friend of mine was recently scammed, the guy wanted to pay her credit card and then give her money monthly, and he told me he doesnt need to know about what happened to my friend.
I feel bad not believing him, but I know that I have to protect myself. I've even asked him how he can't be worried about me He says him and his mom dont really speak because she hates his job his dad died doing the same job and he has no other family. First he told me his bday was dec 24th, I wished him a happy bday and now suddenly his bday is dec 28th and hes going to beI want to hold someone tonight sexy azn meet up right now
