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. ) so I told him to get his game together cause he was a big red flag. He is from Amsterdam with a daughter and 2 sons and his mother was from Estonia who died years back and kids were in a boarding school.He right away fell madly in love with me and told me how great a kisser he was. The names of these last few are Bob Rowland from NYC but he was from NYC, also Jsmes Geisler ( Nigerian name is Jude which he gave me when I told him I knew what was up and he wanted to know how I felt about interracial relationships) & the real doozy, Steven Aaron, from Dallas (he's a pro) has a daughter named Mirabel (who needs a mother) & he even gets the "daughter to PM you also, his FB is VERY GOOD has names, pictures an entire history of his life AND the icing on the cake with him is he will post on your FB page that he loves you & goes as far as putting in his status that you're "in a relationship"!!! Later after a couple of weeks speaking he wanted me to send $600 so his children could go onto a school trip.He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy. Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled! I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him. Be careful gang they are all the same signs & red flags! Borrow from friends, ask relatives, sell my jewelry and he will make things right between us. The money had to be sent through western union to johannesburgh and send to Benjamin, so really now my eyes are open. I have posted before about my guy who worked on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. I have sent him money to come to see me and every time something happens.That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye. Good luck My scammer's name on WWF is Trinity White$$ - definitely a scammer. And here is another catch phrase if you want to compare. Never heard that name but I was dealing with a Chris Anderson, also has a little girl, also is on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, also is German. Funny, I never sent him a dime, but here he is back again. He uses the photo of a man that has been identified. He says he wants to make things right and pay me back but yet he wants me to pay his way off the rig again.
So after he professed his love I responded with very nice PM outlining the errors & red flags with his scam, and I also pointed out that I received a message from someone else that indicated we had "1 mutual friend" on FB and it was a friend of his from Nigeria (which funny enough was true! Keep in mind, they change names and photos to suit their needs. Just another story of Benjamin Ewot who worked as an engineer with workmen beneath him on a rig in Alaska. One pucture he has a bright yellowish jacket with multicolored shirt and glasses. I also threw in that I was very used to a husband that had to go away for long periods of time for work & I actually preferred this because it's the way my husband I lived for over 20 yrs. After he replied (2nd PM only) he was so captivated with my heart, soul and down to earth qualities he somehow felt he was falling in love with me & it must be fate that he found me! I really wanted to find love again AND someone who could help me do good with my money. I was well off financially because my husband died suddenly & I was without family and was very lonely but had no idea how to proceed with my life (& money).

His old profile says that he went to Dayton University, now he has a new profile on Facebook with the young lady on his back and he says she is his daughter who looks totally different from the other girl in the old profile. I was laughing so hard at one yesterday that I answered him back with my own " sad, widow, lonely" story.
He professes you are his wife, with poems and the like. The also claim to be "new" to FB and that's why they found you (another angle they use to get the sympathy vote from their victim " I'm so lonely since my wife passed & need friends or love)Then the game begins and I still get these messages to begin this "relationship ".
