    I met on a dating site a man, he was 40 years engineer, from USA, he was very convincing manners, he said love me, he would like to meet me, but he hasnt enough money.....I sent him money via Western Union....this was 614USD....that evening he said this money isnt enough, because of BTA (basic travell allowance), i didnt know what is this BTA, so i thought i look it in net....by chance I came across this page...Thank God. I realised i am a victim of swindler.......he denied....and he sent me the love letters constantly....

    Any body ever heard of James John from Thomasville, NC ? He found me on FaceBook. He said that his wife died from Breast Cancer 5,then 6, truth be known 10 years ago. He said he had a daughter named Madison and she supposedly lives in Rome, Italy with her great grandmother ( his GRAMMa ). He is supposedly Italian . He said Madison was 15, she says 18 . He talks a good talk , is a graphic designer , sent me pictures of him , his house (?) , cars, Harley Davidson , and indoor swimming pool. Did have a US phone number until he supposedly dropped it going down the stairs in his house. sAys he makes $60,000.00 designing clothes but will not give me the names of his clients. A few weeks ago , he supposedly went to the UK and taught them how to make clothes for a new company that is coming to London, then came home , then supposedly had to go to Lagos ,Nigeria to receive his goods that are worth 2 million dollars and prepare them to be shipped to his house. He scam is this " i left my wallet at home on top of the TV , so , I am stuck in Nigeria and I need money , $3000.00 . I was follish enough to send him $840.00 . Now he has supposedly been robbed and beaten and some man named James Brown that supposedly works at the Nigerian Airport is going to help him . Mr. Brown is asking me to send part of the BTA ($2500.00). I have not commited to doing anything. General Hospital in Nigeria is the hospital that supposedly treated him. Have any of you heard of this person ? Please let me know. He has asked me to marry him !

    Ah well it is sad, so sad that people must earn their livings this way. Perhaps if they were honest, there are many of us who would sponsor family in poverty. but to steal a heart is cruelty. They are good, very good, but often the English is not and mistakes are made when you seem to know more about the culture they are supposed to be from than they do. You try to rationalize, like, 'how could this fantastic guy/gal have such strong feelings so soon????' and you think, well I have so it must be true. I was scammed even though the man knew how hard my life had been allready. So be warned. if something seems 2 good 2b true it usually is!!!! Better to be alone and broken hearted than alone, broken hearted and without a dime! More should share storys, we are not alone and there is no shame it shows we have a capacity to love and right now I am working on the capacity for forgiving.

    Hey has anyone heard of or know this email love.tyra66@yahoo.com. Says his name is Terry Johnson and has a 9yr old daughter by the name of Tyra. Says that he is from Los Angeles and got stuck in Nigeria when he went there to reclaim his loving daughter tyra after the mother kidnapped her and took her to Nigeria with a Nigerian man, Now is asking for BTA to leave. He has sent me numerous pictures of Tyra and himself and a copy of his Passport but of course the passport info is not very clear. I asked him to send recent photo of himself in the hotel that he claims that he is stuck at is called E Time Hotel and says that the Consulate just will not return his phone calls and that yes he was robbed and paid all other monies to lawyers to get his daughter back thru the court systems...Hmmmmm? I told him that i think he was a scammer because ifhis ex kidnapped the child from the states how could she and how and why did this end up in a Nigeria court. And yes of course he wants to marry me and be with me forever and wants me to raise Tyra as my own daughter. And yes ive even spoken with Tyra on several occassions. Its to bad that the real scammers could be making it hard for all people to receive help...

    T, go to
    http://www.romancescam.com/forum/portal.phpo
    and type in the name Terry Johnson...he is on there...I am sorry for you, it hurts badly, but the moment anyone mentions they have had to go to Nigeria the bells should ring! If they were only honest...they give their country such a bad rep.
    Good luck and don't give up looking for a genuine guy, I am sure there must be some out there!

    This is in response to the comment from Pieface posted above, in regards to Ewan Carlton. Definitely this person is a scammer. I went on BlackWhite Singles.com and he emailed me with all his BS. I want to fall in love again, you are what I am looking for etc. I looked at his profile which was funcool, and decided to reply to him. According to the profile he lives in Houston, is an architect, divorced, 45 years old..which made him sound like a great person. We emailed a few times, he told me he is divorced, since his wife cheated on him. His son is 10 years old and had to live with the grandma in South Africa. I am pretty much what he is looking for etc. A few days after we were emailing, I noticed his profile was deleted. He ignored the question when I asked him why he deleted it. Then next he told me his next project to work on most likely would be in Africa. Reading all the scams on this bog, I guess that was a red flag already.
    Anyways, then we started chatting on yahoo. He also told me he was born and raised in NY, but when his dad died when he was 17, they had to relocate to South Africa, since his mom is from there. This is why his English was not that good, since he had been out of the US for several years. We had made out to chat at a certain time, however he never came online. I went to BlackWhite singles to see who was online, just to kill time. There was a funcoolfun online, which of course caught my eye, no picture though. This profile now was almost identical to the funcool one, but this one was a 31 year old woman, looking for a man. I confronted him in an email and cussed him out, later when I checked the funcoolfun profile, it had 3 fake looking pictures attached. Today I checked and the funcoolfun profile is deleted too. He never responded to my email, if this was legit, I am sure he would have defended himself.
    I am glad it didn't get to the point that he asks me for money, I am sure that would have happened soon. That's why he wanted to chat to find out more info about me. If I own a house,what kind of job do you have etc. This is the first time I had gone on a dating site, but I guess in a sense you really can't trust anyone. So Pieface, please be careful, don't let yourself be scammed, no one deserves that. You will find someone eventually...he is not it. I deleted him from my contacts and want no further contact with this person.

    no BS for me either..in response to PIEFACE..and seconding no BS for me comments in regards to Ewan Carlton..I got the exact same story..down to the detail..except he found me on a website called Love and Seek..a Christian website for singles..and he made himself out to be a God fearing Christian man..we were communicating on Yahoo as well..I told him about my property, where I worked and he said he was flying out of Houston at 9:45 Fri eve..would be gone 3 wks..4 max..and would come to meet me in Wi..talked about marriage..etc..Mon eve I googled his name and found the message from Pieface and now another..and he told me he had not even dated anyone since his divorce to his wife..hmmm...well I wrote him a message, he responded back..that he googled this site and saw what I was talking about and how upset he was..and again he would never do something like this and he will get to the bottom of this..and come to think of it..we could not talk on the phone as his cell was broken..needed a new one..guess that could have been traceable..his user name on Love and Seek was DukeCarter..so this is a pretty sad state of affairs..well I am a very spiritual woman and in my belief someday Ewan or whatever his real name is will have to answer up to God..for all his ways and lies...glad we all saw this..wonder how many more there might be?

    Just wanted to add in behalf of Ewan Carlton..that he never asked me for anything..was kind in words and knew how..anyway to speak as a Christian man..but he was obviously talking to other woman..he did not tell me he was not talking to other woman..just that he has not dated..so just decided to add that..

    I have the same experience like you all, specially the man from the network of wayn.com. Dont ever fall into their trap, because they will say love you so much until they want to marry you not even in a month (I dont believe a guy can be so easily to love a person in just few days)

    Here's the story about the scam:-
    1) A man named Darlington Emmanuel (email id : starstar175@yahoo.com) lived in Houston, US. As a Chemical Engineer & own a consultation firm. He is 45 and divorced with a daughter 17yrs old, studied in Medical University. His job need him to travel to Europe & South Africa. As usual, firstly, he asked for the email ID to chat online and after that, asking for mobile number to call and talk sweet to make me slowly fall for him. When time is right, he said want to travel to my country to meet me and asked to book hotel room (suite room) and the lame reason he gave was the credit card couldn't access in South Africa to make the online booking, so he asked me to book for him, but, luckily, I tricked him back by asking him to give me the credit card infos to make the booking, after that, he just said that will be too troublesome and will walk in when he come to my country.
    The day after that, I received his daughter email and in the email saying will accept me as her mom and telling me the good side of her father and something about herself (story & email account, can be easily make up)
    After few days later, he sent me a sms that asking for money of $2000 and said will pay back when he come to meet me. I told him that I don't have that sum of money and he asked how much I can lend to him and I asked him back the reason why he need that money in a sudden. The reason he gave was "I had pay the money to my project workers and need the money to pay for the tax to clear cheque." (common sense : how can an owner of the consultation firm & Chemical Engineer not afford to take out the sum of $2000 to pay for the tax.. what a lame reason)
    He did call me 2 times & sent sms to me, but, I ignore him because I know this was a scam..
    So, Girls!! Beware & don't fall into their trap.
