haha, mugu is not happy!!!

got this from him:

From: Timothy Bobade <timothybobade@yahoo.com>

Ms. Marisa,

I am writing to make a formal complaint against Romance Scam. My complaint is that you have included my persona as a scammer when you post “Staff Sgt. Laurence Thompson, laurencethompson11@yahoo.com”.

My complaint is that I am an honorable person who maintains a good reputation in my community, and who is not involved in any kind of scamming. I don’t understand how you led this to link my Facebook account to the email accounts that you mention in your post.

Mostly I access to my Facebook account through my personal internet connection, which IP doesn’t correspond to the one that you mentioned, and sometimes I upload my photographs from an ex-co-worker’s Blackberry.

This situation has caused me an irreparable damage to my reputation, my family, and people who is around me who have been affected by this defamation.

In my view, you should immediately remove such post and place and apology instead. And I recommend you that before posting anything, you double-verify the authenticity of the information that you have.

I understand that you will respond formally to my complaint. I shall follow up this letter if I do not hear back from you by the end of next week. In the meantime, if you need any further information, please write to me at the address shown.

I look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.


Yours sincerely,
Olugbenga Bobade

After his real mug was posted, he quickly changed his email on Facebook, in order to prevent the email markmarkwilson@yahoo.co.uk from pointing to his real profile. But thanks to Spokeo that STILL continues showing old Facebook records, even after the profile on FB is being changed, we can see that email markmarkwilson@yahoo.co.uk was pointing on FB to his mug:

my reply to him:
Appology???? You are a miserable stinky scammer and YOU KNOW IT. You think you can quickly change your records on Facebook, so it doesn't point to your real profile and get away with it?? E-mail markmarkwilson@yahoo.co.uk is YOUR email. and even if you change it millions of times, Facebook has records of it. And Spokeo still holds the old records, which email was used at registration. And you tried to register on my dating site with that email markmarkwilson@yahoo.co.uk - placing a fake profile of a military. I also have records of it.

Get lost and stay away from my sites. I am not your maga.

He is from Ibadan, Nigeria, but it doesn't matter, he really pissed me off!!! :evil:

He says: "before posting anything, you double-verify the authenticity of the information that you have." That's EXACTLY what I did!!! Mugu cannot even imagine that there ARE dating sites out there which do a background screening of their members, and will actually compare email used at registration against emails at Facebook!! Even in his nightmare he couldn't imagine that!! :twisted: :applause:

And another thing - how did mugu find this topic? I don't think he Google's himself day and night. :disagree: I am sure some victim showed him this topic, instead of coming here and adding information. ugh...

Hello:

This is the Nigerian passport of this scammer. Do you know how we can proceed with this guy?

Is there any way in which we can legally proceed against this scammer?

Welcome to RS once again after long time. Please tell us how did you obtain the copy of the passport? Did he confess because he wanted to get US visa ?
I am sorry but for legal procedures you would need to contact EFCC Nigeria but they are so corrupted that I hardly believe justice would be served. US law enforcement has no jurisdiction and no extradition treaty. For prosecuting you would need to be present in Nigeria and this is the most danger part of it.
Also you would need to have proof of scam that you were defrauded by this particular criminal or his IP must match with the fake name's IP.... Also punishment for scammer is like a slap on the hand since everyone profits from their crimes....
Confronting the scammer is WRONG!!! DON'T enlighten criminals with your wisdom. REPORT & BLOCK.
PHOTO VICTIM - "Do not confront the owner of the pictures, as they are victims themselves! You will only serve to further the terror and harm !" Silence Is Golden!!! I speak Polish.
