We have got to be smarter than they are, and I am not desperate for attention, lol but his messages are nice.. In the end ie at the end of his two weeks job on the oil rig while we chatted, he said that he got a cheque for 30,000 USD for a two weeks job and hes on his way to London, but said he was upset as he could not cash it as his license expired and he could cash it only for 2000 USD but he had on him only 300USD. Please send me his pic before I get anymore involved. It is sad when I have been here for over a good year and now the scammers are coming on here by other's telling them to come here. No he laughed, thought we were all dumb and idiots for being scammed. Different name, but widowed with an 11 year old boy, no other family and is an independent civil engineer working on an oil platform. My heart aches, and I am normally not taken easily. I will never forget the experience I had with him as he was so sweet, fun and kind until I asked him to never ask me for money and then he became furious and talked very hateful. with a 16 yo daughter presently living with an Aunt in Michigan.We argued about that, he wanted me to send him a walmart debit card, but finally I told him I was not doing it, and I was done with that theme, now he said there was an accident on the oil rig, and one person is dead. He has not responded to my email yet, he has sent me pictures of a very handsome guy who I am sure is not him. He also uses photos of an older woman with dark hair and supposed sister wearing glasses, claiming his mother just had heart attack but does not reveal what hospital the mother is in. He is unusually very sweet, speaks in a silent voice, whispers and sometimes you can hear children in the background that are probably his :-)) hardly him being on an oil rig.
No friends showing but several women "liked" his comments. Not sure it is a good idea to tell them about this site. For everyone of us that got out without giving them anything but our time, we are the lucky ones. I just received a call from our local florist telling me that the gentleman with a Dutch or German accent placed the order.
They are so secure in what they do that it does not matter. I realized it could be him or his friends so I changed my user name and it all stopped. I too received a dozen roses, two boxes of expensive chocolate, and a teddy bear he named Larry so he could sleep with me each night.
I come here for Comfort and read what other's went through. God Bless I'm not even sure how I ended up on this site but these stories are sounding all too familiar. I had the same experiences with my scammer and we even talked on regular phone calls. Actually became close, he was very caring, loving, but he always within a few days had a hardship of money, mostly for his phone as he was only alloted so much time.
I use to feel safe here but he was told about it and Threatened me for putting my story on here. I shut them down and these guys/gals that read Facebook are dangerous and I’ll just keep blocking but still would like to know if anyone knows of Craig Lisowski or Robin Marler Arelene.
We were both on a dating site and he quicky asked me to jump over to Yahoo and use regular email so I set up a bogus account on Yahoo and also gmail, and Installed the chat. Widowed, one child , age 15 however, once we got to regular email his emails were very choppy. He said he was self Employed oil rig engineer in Houston, Tx with 8 men working with him. He even said I was his soul mate, that he was in love with me. Live and learn, but he had a wonderful beauty about him. My guy had the same backstory: owned his own offshore drilling company and currently working on a project for Exxon Mobil which ends in February. Widower looking for a wife & good mother for daughter. I found him interesting at first – he was a friend of a friend on FB.
