An update and what I have learned.

So after I was scammed back in September you can find my post on a James Horvath scam. (http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=91049)

I went on a online dating site not trusting. A guy messaged me and we started skyping and talking on the phone. This was October 13, 2015. We have not missed a day of talking and skyping and I can safely and happily say he is who he says he is. I even skyped with his mom.

We are meeting him and his parents are coming from another state to see me in April, next month!

I wanted to point out how important Skype is when you converse with someone online.

If they say they can't skype which by the way is a free download and free service. Then that's a major red flag!

I'm excited it took time to heal and I didn't meet this guy off Match or Eharmony. I met him off a site that for the life of me can't remember the name. It was a fluke really! He came on to take off his profile and found mine, that's how we met.

I want you all to know there can be a happy ending, don't give up and always be aware!

Hi,
I am not sure If you will ever get this. I am so sorry someone used my pictures to scam you. I recently found the fake account when a friend asked me why I had multiple accounts. After some searching I found over 20 accounts using my pictures on facebook. I am sure there is more but I reported the ones I found and had them deleted. I wish you the best and again I am sorry. BTW, My real name is John.

Hello jamesisaturd and welcome to R.S.
On behalf of limichelle31 I would like to thank you for your post. And I am sure that someone here from the staff will see that she gets your message if they feel it is the right thing to do. After all it has been a year since this post. And sometimes closed wounds are best left closed.
I also wanted you to know that all of us here at R.S. understand that we are not the only victims in this crime. You, and all those like you that have had their photos stolen off the internet are in deed victims of identity theft of a sort. The profiles these criminals create are completely fictional, but the photos still came from a real person who lives a real life somewhere.
I am sorry that you have found out that you are among these unfortunate victims. And I hope that your message here has helped you in some way in just the act of writing it. Even though this is not your fault and no one here would ever place the blame in your direction. You have at least expressed your sorrow about this whole affair. And that is more then anyone could ask.

Thank you for posting.

Ps. We discourage the use of real names here. So don't be a fended if someone from the staff edit's yours out.
