I also consider myself very lucky that I was spared the heartache that other women have gone through with him and others like him. The less we interact with them the less hold they have on us. No online presence in the name he gave, no verifiable info forthcoming. Supposedly now on drilling platform in Poland, having a bad day, and machinery order held up with final payment needed, bank account frozen because he didn't notify them he's abroad. I have received so many friend requests through a friend. I just wanted to add that my guy used the name Micheal (NOT MICHAEL) John.

Somehow it led me to your site and I read previous posts that sounded very familiar. I too thought that I had finally met the man of my life. Evan Gilmore, supposedly from Denver, divorced single dad with 2 teenagers.

That led me to a Youtube post about Oil Rigger dating scammers and there was his face amongst all the others who are doing this. He has no love in his heart for you or any of us that he tried to scam. Messaging via WWF for a couple of weeks, exchanged gmail, then on Hangouts for a month. Collinsclark friend requested me on Instagram a few days ago and he is following over 6,000/people, women of course.

I did not disclose too much infofmation about myself, so he does have my e_mail and phone number, but he has never called me only sent text messages. James Edmund,the scammer had a Facebooks profile that disappeared and reappeared within two weeks of me chatting to him on whatsapp, he said he was coming to UK from Miami 3pm Friday January 5, 2018- there was no flight from Miami to Gatwick at that time - I checked, he failed to provide photos of being on an oil rig and I asked right at the start, but claimed he fell in love with me ASAP - which is unusual, wrote me a poem, as another victim on your website stated, appeared controlling, trying to manipulate me induce empathy/feeling sorry for him - I kept saying to him I was guarded and don't trust people easily but I preferred it to stay that way until I get to know him (knowing I already googled him and there were discrepancies).

This has been going on for almost 2 months, and I am just having fun, but I am sure he gets mad at my responses and acts like he is ok. This criminal is exceptionally stupid because if a woman tells him, I don't trust people easily I am guarded and he keeps pursuing me, then hes wasting his time, he is not of an exceptional intelligence.

After that I decided to see if I could Google him as he said he had an office in Long beach. He claimed that he fell in love with me madly from day 1.

I couldn't find him so I Googled his name with oil rigger. And he's so so sweet everyday with the calls and texts.

I have been very cautious as to not give my email out to any strangers, but I let my guard down on this site thinking it was safe. We must let all our Facebook friends know what to watch out for. I was hurt and felt betrayed by her giving out this site for I Swear I think the Ed Steve has done a great job here to keep us protected and I praise them for it. Hope ones reading this understand "Do Not Give This Site To Your Scammers" They all work together. They then provide a email address that victims can contact to get their money back. He even said I was his soul mate, that he was in love with me. Live and learn, but he had a wonderful beauty about him. My guy had the same backstory: owned his own offshore drilling company and currently working on a project for Exxon Mobil which ends in February. Widower looking for a wife & good mother for daughter. I found him interesting at first – he was a friend of a friend on FB.

This is trying to take advantage of victims again by charging a small [so they claim] fee for recovering their money - which is just another scam! He was born 5/7/60 & his photos (3) showed him as good looking with gray hair.

We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him. His name is Tony Richards and he has a 15 year old daughter in boarding school in Italy. This has gone on for 16 months and the guy still got in touch with me last week wishing me a happy new year and that he would be home with me soon haha.

He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. My scammer met me that way and after I deleted him I would get at least two requests a day from scammers. Please dont make me laugh, if my story just stops one poor woman for being taken for their life savings I would feel a little better, but for now I am poorer, a lot wiser but so untrusting of everybody Beware ladies! I lost ,000 to the man who loved me more than life.

That is why there is a delay from placing a post to it appearing live on the site so I can filter all potential scammers, trolls, abuse etc. I also have to say that I don’t understand what "playing" with them accomplishes. If you want to "play" try a board game or get another hobby. The last thing we wanted is to give them more leverage. As with others here he asked some odd questions, i.e., what did I eat for breakfast or what was I going to eat for lunch, did I want to come feed him.
