Okay ladies, I am a very smart and intelligent woman, and I almost got taken for this one. I have to admit I have been lonely for a while and I wne on match.com to find something. What a mistake. This guy who goes by David L. Moore, an Engineer who is working in Nigeria as an Ag Biotechnician, emailed me and gave me his Venice, Florida number. I said okay, and talked with him on yahoo IM. He was sweet and endearing. Told me that he was leaving to go to the UK to get his money for the job that he did, okay, I thought, a little weird but I will go along. We started to get close. He sent me pictures, he was handsome. I sent him pictures of me. We talked for hours everyday. he told me his daughter's name was Linda Natalie, which is a weird name. Told me his legal name was Labrainne but spelled it differently twice. So his name is supposedly Labrainne David Moore, but he americanized it. When he sent me a check made payable to Engr. David L. Moore for $250,000 pounds, I knew it was a scam, but I kept him going to see how far he would go. He is really really good. He had me hooked. Then he said the transfer was coming through and once it did he would come to Florida and sweep my off of my feet, okay if you say so I thought. Then he sent me a copy of a cashiers check for $250,000 pounds, which when converted was $400,000. I said no way. I had reservations anyways, picked up on a few things. I am a former investigator (yea and I fell for his crap). Then he said the bank called and there was a problem with the transfer and they wouldn't tell him over the phone and that they needed to see him face to face. I knew right then and there that the next step was for him to ask me for money. So I spent two days doing research. His IP address the entire time was from Logos, Nigeria...which is a mecca for crime. I took his pictures and googled them with google images, all you have to do is upload a picture of anyone and it comes back as to whether or not it is actually them. that is when I found out -------He has an alias of Mason Spencer, fron Orlando and he is a Vetenarian. He scammed other women. HE IS REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY SMOOTH!!!!!!!! DON'T FALL FOR IT. Google how to verify IP addresses and how to confirm pictures. I talked to this joker on the phone, IM'd him for hours, e-mailed, blah, blah........... I am an atttractive, smart, successful woman, so my mind set is why wouldn't a man who was successful not want me. DON'T FALL, DON'T FALL, DON'T FALL FOR IT! He said he was from Sweden, he was a widower, his daughter lived with his "mum", he traveled a lot - AND OH, BTW he had two match.com accounts. I asked him why, he said he lost the password to the old one and he had to create a new one. He had all of the right words. Bye, David - aka Mason, aka, Labrainne, whoever you are. NOT FROM THIS GIRL!
