Met this man on plentyoffish, site name marvintops, but says his name is jeff, was in alaska on oil rig then flew to Malaysia and got detained, asking for money to be sent to his friend scott to help him, very manipulative, be careful.I think he hacked into someones personal account, he sent me alot of family pictures.
Forgot to give you the "total" amount I got scammed out of......$6700.00 USD.
I was on a singles site (Connecting Singles) where I met a very charming man who was named "Fashmanoba". He also went by the name of Anthony Richard, or Richard Anthony. Within a short amount of time, he asked me to switch over to Yahoo so we could IM with each other. Oh, he was good with the charm, the poetry & fell in love with me within a few weeks. He told me he was a petrochemical engineer & that were destined to be together. He claimed he was a widow & had lost his late wife & child in an auto accident. We continued exchanging emails & IM's for a little longer, when he told me in one of them that he was heading out to Dubai to put "a bid/tender" on a job & then was going to be flying straight to Canada to be with me when this was done. Well on the 3rd day I received a text message & a phone call with him in tears telling me that he had gotten robbed while out withdrawing money from an ATM. He & his driver were followed by another car who ended up shooting the driver, robbing him of ALL of his ID & cash. He "luckily" had left his passport back in his hotel room. When the driver was shot, the car lost control, in which he tried steering it while it was running. Unfortunately, he hit a girl by the side of the road. He sends me another text message saying that he is trouble & needs to borrow $950.00USD to pay for her hospital bills. After 2 days, the girl died. Now he had to find a lawyer that would represent him if he "ever" had the change to return to the US. This man went by the name of Kelvin Anderson. He now needed $1,250.00USD as a retainer for him to take his case. There was ALWAYS something that was added to his story & when I didn't send him any more money, or told him I was going to send him money, but didn't, is when the threatening phone calls started. He had NO family or friends & I was "his everything"......"his future"......his "wife to be"......so if I didn't send him monies, it made me look like I didn't love him. Well the BS just kept on & on. When I refused to send him more money, his "lawyer" moved him way out of the city of Dubai to stay in a "cheap motel" where he had no money food or anything else. He played on my emotions over & over & over & "TRIED" to make me feel guilty because "I was a free person, & for him, it was worse than being in jail". I checked his phone numbers, but they were not accessible because he was using calling cards. EVERYTHING I questioned about his BS story, he ALWAYS had an answer for, He told me how he tried to commit suicide 2x because his life had "no meaning" without me in it. I did some investigating on my own, only to find out about another 5-6 singles sites that he was also on. He also goes by the name of "Fashmanoba". So, anyone out there that may come across him.....BEWARE!!!!
I just get a blank sms from +13602342383. I do not know the person at all. Beware!

Well, tell her he is in New York now. Just got a message from him. He is looking for new BAIT! Tell her to please put on some glasses! Because when he takes all of her money, she is going to be blind and broke!!!
Yea I got a call from this guy too, except he says he is Gerolt Parker 58 and retired from BP did engineering and maintenance on oil rigs. Says he is a German American, raised in Berlin Germany - but his mom is from California. Met him on a dating site. But some things didn't add up.
same number just text messaged me "call me....jose"
I received a text from this number from a person I met online by the name Lewis roderick he is on Facebook first he called me with a UK number +447561252625. Then tested me thru this number +13602342383
i live in scotland not married no kids i work in norway ie oil rigs am back home for 3 weeks
Sounds like the guy that sent me a message on F.B. Mostly the same info except he lives in L.A. California and his father is in nursing home there. He moved there from Australia when mom died. Self employed, same lines, same kids, fell for my smile and sent mushy emails and was starting to fall in love with me. Funny thing was that at the same time that he was emailing me on FB I was getting emails from a Benson Morgan from Manchester U.K. Who is a engineer, widow one married daughter in Germany. Sister is widowed and lives with their mother. He fell in love with me ....lol God sent me to him as a soul mate. He has to travel to Malaysia to settle some contract owing his family since his fathers death and then proceed to Germany and would like to visit me in Canada. Both these guys had very similar writing patterns and the same type of grammar I never gave them any info about myself.
Benson had given me a phone number in the U.K. But I never called him and he asked for mine and I hadn't given him it when I goggled Benjamin McGuire Liam's name and came upon this site I decided they were one and the same or both pulling the same scam as there pictures are different.
Benson shows a black suit, white shirt and red tie, another one is of him in front of water. I just blocked them both.
Benjamin McGuire Liam big time scammer said he was from L.A. California
Also I think he used the name or knows Benson Morgan says from Manchester U..K
Messages from Facebook were almost identical, both fell in love with my picture yadayadayada
You know the drill, I just blocked them both.
This number keep texting me and knows my name. Its annoying
My best friend has been in contact with a Kelvin Ferguson. She was going to visit him in London but got a call from the "nanny" that he had been in an accident. He is supposed to be in a coma and his son has a broken leg. We all feel she is being scammed but unfortunately she is temporarily blind. Can anybody provide more info that would help us convince her of this person's bad intentions?
Same here, I met this guy in FB..says that he like me a lot! And I asked him to send me text since he said that he is in London but I found out that the number he used for texting is from USA!!!!....now I got it....he is so smart but he can't beat me!!!!LOL!!!but I want to play a game with him and we'll see who is a looser!!!
I received a FB message from 'Benjamin McGuire Liam". After googling his name, I found out he is a scammer!
we ve met on dating site he was in Malaysia got sms from this number
i also have pics of him weknow if he s using the same could share if you wish to
Just got a text to see why I am playing hide and seek. I blocked him off my yahoo and has no other way of contacting me. Says he is a Lt Col in the US army with a 12 yr old son in California. I have pictures and have been talking to him for 6 months. Too many lies and loop holes in his stories.
Keep getting texts from this # with mobile verification code- TOTAL SCAM!!
I think he tried to scam me too...wanted me to send $10k
I got responses from a Kelvin Freguson, dating site. Self employed selling computers, Age 45, widowed with 10yr old son who lives with mother, age 75 with a week kidney in London. He said he was a provider and protector but then started to ask for money while on a business trip to Singapore. Wanted me to send money to a Nonis Joan....and not his real name. Just be carefu ladies. Smooth talker, will send pictures of a tall dark handsome man.
I am getting it from a shipping company, a Catherine Chan. in Malaysia, wants me to send money to release a package, from someone I know, who is sending something to me. but since the package had valuables, money, and jewelry in it, I have to pay to have it released. using the above number. also the name of a company
track express international. or track express courier company. with a homepage that is as generic as it gets.
and an alternate phone number 601 624 98262.
he also contacted me as benjamin liam harris but added recently mcguire with it and whole different profile picture !!
I need to see his pictures please. I also have many pictures of him. He has been playing his game with me for almost 3 months. Thank you.
learned the hard way
What's up ~ Sound like we have met the same guy. Used the name Benjamin Mcguire Liam, self employed, installs telecommunications systems, lives in Newcastle UK. We talked for 3 months, he won a contract in Malaysia and when he was through there he was coming to the States to meet me. Wanted to get married, I was to look for houses, divorced with two girls, 3 year old Kiera, 5 year old Dharma. Originally from Australia moved to UK when he was 9, raised by dad, mom died. When he had been in Malaysia for 2 weeks, his shipment of goods from China was held up in customs and he needed $44,000 so he could continue his work. I foolishly sent $5,000 that I really didn't have to send but he talks a good game. He kept calling, messaging, emailing, then he had some more trouble, needed $22,000 more. I wish I would have listened to my gut from the beginning, I knew something wasn't right. Needless to say, I sent no more money, he got mad but continued to call The last thing he asked me for was to send money for Christmas to his dad in UK, dad is ill by the way. He even sent me pictures of "his" girls on the plane on the way to Malaysia. He used phone numbers 44707572721 and 60146284701. Not only do I feel stupid, I'm very angry and am doing all I can to backtrack this lowlife. Sorry, we both feel for this one!
