Re: Barry Michael - barrymichael551 (Instagram)

Postby SusanAttard » Thu Jan 09, 2020 11:07 pm

Hello all,

He goes by the name Barry Michael on Instagram. He started to follow me on there and when I asked who he was or how we knew each other out of pure curiosity, he instantly began professing his love etc. Said his birthday is Jan 2 and he is claiming to be 35 years old with a 5 year old daughter named Jessica. Said he didn't want to talk about that part of his life when I asked what happened to his ex, and he said he doesn't allow her to see the kid. () All lies of course)

I'm scrolling here and seeing so many pics that he sent me via hangout after he requested to move the conversation from Instagram. All the pics he claims to have been taking recently at the time....NOPE!
I had a feeling this guy was a fraud but as mentioned by another, so cute right? How can we NOT talk to him haha

Anyways, almost fell for this myself. He claims to be in the military and said he will come to me on his vacation when deployed in a few months, can't wait to see me etc but would NEVER video chat me as I wanted to prove it was him as much as he swore it was. He called me one night and the background didn't sound like he was in the army base. He also did not have a Colombian accent (as he claimed to be)...sounded more like a man of color and when I stated that he didn't sound Colombian, he tried to have me believe that his accent has been affected/altered due to the many countries he's been sent to for the military. Riiiiiiiiiiiight. Another laugh was him telling me he's colombian and then saying his full name is Barry Michael Walkowski - ummmmmm that's not Colombian FOR SURE. He would use the word "babe" every 3 or 4 words and would send all kinds of romantic messages, tried to propose and say he will send a ring to make me believe he is for real. Said he has an errand man that can help him. I decided I'd play along one day to just see where he would go with this sham....he suddenly had an issue with his phone and said he's so sad that he may not be able to talk to me again... and there it was. Asked me for help...to go to the store and buy some kind of card for his phone. Obviously, I didn't fall for this... so I said " Ok, you send me the money, and I'll go for you." He laughed and said he doesn't have access to the bank as he is in the base. I said not to worry, I accept e-transfers. LOL I mean, the guy states he can't be caught by his commander in the base with his phone or he will be hurt and put into a cell, yet he was very capable to constantly keep in touch and text by the minute, daily. He did not ever do anything to prove himself, like send a video clip of him saying my name or holding up a picture of him doing anything that was asked because CLEARLY this wasn't possible.

Did some digging and found that the base he claimed to be in, in Alabama, has actually been closed since the 1990's. Googled Barry M. Walkowski in Colombia and all these poor guys photos popped up under so many different names.

I can go on and on about this scam. Point is....don't trust or engage with this guy, whoever he is, no matter how much he tried to convince you that he can be trusted or won't hurt you. Just a smooth talker here ladies! Cute, but no fool here :)

I’m currently talking to him and he sent me a few pics so I searched them
His name on Instagram was Daniel Williams and I never added him back, and he eventually deletes me but kept talking to me on Hangout. He sent me a pic of him with his dog too. His Instagram disappeared and he said he had to deactivate it. He had told me he was 37 on Instagram and later he told me he was 28.
His current phone number is +1 (209) 553-0956
He told me the area code was because he had a girlfriend from San Diego that he just never changed the number (even though 209 is waaaaayyyy north of San Diego). He also told me he had an iPhone but I put his number in a text to see and it turned green.
He never told me about kids or anything. I asked him about the accent, he said his dad was from England his mom from the states. He kept saying stuff like “is okay” instead of “it’s” so I knew immediately he was faking it. He didn’t sound english at all. I kinda wanted to see where he was taking it but now I see he’s a serial liar..I’m out haha.
Hangout email was danielwilliams0997@gmail.com

Michael Brain Raymond

Postby guzels » Wed Mar 04, 2020 3:28 pm

Hello everyone,
He has found me on Tinder and introduced himself as Michael Brain Raymond (39 y.o.).
Soldier from Florida (Miami), but currently in Iran. His wife has died in a car crash, he has 14 y.o. son in Texas who is in private school. Dad has died when he was 9 and mom in the hospital.
Nice and talkative with similar questions like "hello babe, how are you, what was for breakfast, lunch and dinner :lol:"
I started to belive him but one day he said his son will have birthday tomorrow and I am only one who can buy Amazon card for him. The show started :lol: Too classical story and so easily I found him here. But the guy on the pics handsome though :applause:
His phone number is +1(818)658-1246

So this guy messaged me today on tik tok. And he goes by the name scott walkoski , said he is frin dallas texas currently deployed in Afghanistan, got out of a relationship a year ago, catching his best friend and girlfriend. said he would be back in a year. I honestly couldn't believe a man that handsome would talk to me. And he kept repeating words and sounded off which got my guard up, I looked him on facebook, Instagram I just knew something wasnt right. And sure enough I stumble on here lol this is crazy to me.

I've been talking to this guy for 3 days now. I know hes trying to get money from me as he keeps trying to say he needs data and then saying he wants me to send £50 in iTunes vouchers.

Hes never once mentioned his name and he told me he had a house in Chicago. The next thing once he found out I'm in the UK he said he has a house here too.

When a few more things didn't seem to add up with his story I searched his name and his pictures popped up on this site.

Hes talking to me using whatsapp with the number +234 708 510 7802 I met him on the app 'Hi'.

I asked him about how many names and ages he went by and he told me I had to be careful because people were using his pictures, which obviously I dont believe. Hes the real person from the pictures I'm speaking to as I got him to take a photo of himself with today's date on which he did but I still believe hes trying to scam people of money.

He started talking to me a bit less than 2 weeks ago. Found me through Tinder. We are supposedly still in touch.

He goes by Brandon Philips W. and he claims he is in the military in Alabama while originally from Oregon. Age 32. He has 2 dogs.

Came out of a long relationship but no kids and no dead wife. In all honesty, I would've caught up earlier had he claimed that he had a dead wife. He caught his girlfriend cheating on him with his neighbor.

Many things raised small red flags but because the general conversation was "how's your day" or "what did you eat" I kind of ignored it. I googled his name a few times but came out empty.
It was inonsistencies like "I am looking first for friendship cause I was hurt", then "I am looking for a serious relationship that leads to marriage" then in 5 days time claiming he loves me. Then he said "I believe that one day we will meet. Do you believe it?" And I was like, something's very wrong.
He never asked me for money, if anything he said he wanted me to be his sugar baby that he showers with money and gifts. That's when I was like, Ok time to look up his picture since his name was not coming up with anything. Thank you Catfish for teaching me that. LOL. And this led me here. Thank you.

I also just checked and he has apparently deleted his Tinder profile now. I cant find messages there or anything. We were talking originally through Tinder and then through Hangouts. Unfortunately I cannot seem to be able to see what email he's using, it'll only show me his name. Fake name that is. These are the pictures he sent me.

I am so glad that through the hardships of my life I have learned to pay attention to the flags and trust my instinct.
Sucks though cause let's face it, the guy in the pics is cute. Hahahaha! Oh, well. Another one bites the dust. :lol:

He’s back!
He is now posing as military police in Seattle WA. His name is Steve Henderson and he is 37 years old.

I have all the same other images as the rest of you. But he got me good during this Covid crap. Called is phone, 561-461-8869 and he answered with a German accent. I was like “oh No” he hung up and said he dad was in the military in Germany and so he grew up there. His new scam is that he’s looking to settle down and get married. He lived in Florida and his girlfriend cheated on him and is on drugs now and broke his heart.

So I asked him for his rank and who is commanding officer was and he couldn’t give me anything. This guy is on HINGE still and scamming and won’t stop because no one is stopping him, the fact he has been doing this for a year or longer is crazy!
