I have been communicating with this person on Instagram. He is going by the name of George Watson. He claims he is an orthopaedic surgeon with the government, stationed in Syria or Sweden. His story changes a bit. He is a widower, has no parents, and has a 13 year old daughter in a boarding school in Virginia. He was supposedly born in England.
He asked me to add him on Hangouts, so we continued to communicate on that app. I have questioned him a number of times when his story seemed sketchy, or he talked about being in love within days of chatting. He is the 13th scammer I've had the misfortune of being contacting by, and I don't think he was very good. We tried to talk on the phone, but the connection was poor. We also tried a video chat, but of course I couldn't see him. His accent sounded South African. Yesterday he claimed he was attacked & injured by terrorists. As a result, he is concerned about his government benefits. He asked to have his benefits sent to me. When asked what this would cost me, he told me $3,000.
I'm not sure why, but he agreed to another video chat. Again, the connection was poor, but I was able to see briefly that he looks like a youngish African man.
I blocked him on Hangouts, but just went back to unblock him, and our conversations are still there.
Is Mark Gervais aware that someone is using his pictures?
I believe I have more pictures as well.
