NOW GOING BY THE NAME HARRY HARDSON firstname.lastname@example.org
AKA Harry Edwards Hardson
I met this guy on Chemistry.com. I'm not a sucker for trusting people without knowing them really well and when this guy started with the "soul mate" "I love you" "will give up everything and move where you are" "I'm leaving for Afghanistan tomorrow" "I have a godson in Ghana who needs groceries" (I did get suckered for $40 on this one and sent groceries through ghanamart.com but what I told this jerk I was sending and what I sent were two completely different things) I knew I was getting scammed.
I played along for a while still trying to find him in the scam pages even tried Spokeo and they didn't have any record of him. He even claimed to live not more than an hour away from me. I got a new cell number and called him, that was one of the first confirmations that he was a scammer because the phone number (724) 268-0227 is a Voip and not a cell phone located in PA. I traced the phone number but could only get a signal close to where he is located.
The conversation last night was that he was selling his home (there is a delay so he can look up nearby cities to tell you the right city) and that he is retiring from the military at the end of August 2013. He has a german shepherd dog called Beamer and he is a contractor for the city of Logan in Utah. He did slip a couple of times when he said he was going to open his own business when he got back - but he already said he was a contractor with his own business. When he told me he had put his house on the market, I asked for the address because I used to live in that city and he couldn't give me the address.
He told me he was of German decent and that his wife had died of breast cancer 6 years ago. He hasn't been with anyone since that time and kept repeating "don't you think it's time for me to find love?" When I told him that I get it and I'm not stupid he stopped saying it.
He uses the words "honey" and "baby" a lot - like every other word. Last night he told me he was sending me money to pay for the groceries for his godson Felix Gyampo 123 October Street phone number +233232943151 email email@example.com
- he asked for me to pay for delivery of the items. I called ghanamart and they said that they are a legitimate business and they get scammed a lot. The man I talked too seemed legit - but who knows. As soon as "Harry" told me "Felix" lived in Ghana I was pretty much thinking scammer!!!
He began the conversations very religiously - that he reads the bible, that God brought us together all that crap. Luckily for me I'm not so religious!!!
Last night he asked me to send more groceries to Felix - which always came mid way through a conversation - no consistency and the English was bad even for a German who has lived in the US for 20 years. He told me to send fish this time - don't know why. Then he starts with the online sex...Can't say it was good...he would never take the lead and never answer questions I was asking. He always wanted me to lead the sex conversation. So I played along - laughing the whole time... Sorry ladies if this offends but I really wanted this guy to reveal who he was.
Last night he said "I am going to email my bank today and tell them I need to get you money for Felix's groceries because I don't want you to pay for everything." Then he said "what is your banking preference???"" I didn't answer him, told him I was tired and we would talk later about it.
The other red flag was that he was always asking about my kids. I actually thought he was a pedophile because of how many questions he asked about my kids. Constantly kept saying "I love kids. My wife couldn't have them...I always wanted them."
He sent a couple of the photos that are already on this website to me and he used one on Chemistry.com. He has closed his Chemistry.com profile down for now. That profile is HarryHardson512. He closed it on 7/9/13 I guess when he thought he had hooked me!
Anyway, that is my story. I'm going to keep talking to him to see what he does and wants me to send next. Will post here as time goes on. Will contact Military Police with this information as well.
Thanks for having this site - it's great!
