Your avatar really makes me laugh!!! LOL.

Whatever helps, is fine with me. I wish they would stop using the names though, although it is safer they do so that people can be guided here more than if he did change his name.

Thanks and keep

Although I did not find my scammer already listed, he is now.
I'm hoping it will save someone else from him.
I'm looking forward to catching more in the future and have set a couple of bait sites.
Good work to all! :twisted:

No, but I was pleased that I was able to post him here and warn others off. This site has educated me a lot.

I haven't found mine either, but was suspicious and somehow I found this site, and then I posted all I knew... And was happy to know that few days ago some other potential victim had found my post and realized that was the one trying to scam them as well, only from different e-mail addy... so I am glad that I could make my contribution to the site, which is GREAT btw! THE BEST! :applause: :party: :D
I must break you.

Yes, after I posted his pic thinking he wasn't on here and had it redirected to the right place. Sooooo frustrated with right now! Since that first one almost had me (or my $) I've now had FIVE more men claim to be a resident of the U.S., in my state but "on business" either in or around Africa! Or they started using the old Am instead of I'm or I am. One today immediately started asking me what I did for a living. I could sure tell he read my profile! :thinking: I told him I was unemployed and no more on the IM. That's something else I'm doing differently is NOT giving out my email keeping it all through match's system. I'm just mad because I paid money for this service and feel like I'm being scammed by!!

Hello folks,
I am sorry that some of you were scammed before you found RomanceScam. I have never been scammed. Many have tried. I found RomanceScam briefly after I started my online dating experience. I just never believed the scam messages. I just felt it was really strange how on the online dating sites it had such a lovey dovey instant love affair microwave mentality. I just did not believe it. It just does not happen in the real world. I used google to research and found RomanceScam early on in my dating experience. Why? I thought the online dating stuff was too fishy to be true.

Did I find my scammer here? many scammers I found here. I mean I found scam reports about them here. I have been contacted by more than one scammer. I have seen many scammers scam reports here and on the other 20 official anti-scam websites I prefer.

One problem is there is one dater I met I know in my heart is a scammer, has a scam report on the unofficial type. The person portrayed themselves as a model living in Nigeria originally from Sri Lanka or Columbia. I never got a money request from the person so I have absolutely no proof the person is a scammer. Today I used the email checker and can see the person is using a different picture depicting totally different person of a different nationality. The original picture person looked Italian the picture now is of black lady. In my heart the person is a scammer I can't prove it. No this person is not listed here. I am going to save both pictures now. I need to research this issue

Just saying

No I never found him listed here. I had done several searches on him over the first while of getting to know him. We met on a dating site, and even though I insisted that I was not to keen on a long distance relationship I caved in. I lodged a complaint against this man through another site that offered investigative advice and never heard from them. One day not too long ago I just did a search a the name steel came up and that was him. Now since I blasted them with information, I found this site - which actually has been more information/user friendly. Now i come almost daily to look for updates!!
Thanks for being here.
