I asked if that's where he got his Nigerian accent. While we were talking I snapped the picture he used but I didn't get a picture of the girl he claimed was his daughter. This man and this girl, whomever they are are being used like this. He wasn't a very good scammer but I probably didn't play his game correctly either. One more thing, he asked me many times if I ever talked to anyone else I didn't know on FB. It was definitely creepy how he (or someone) always knew the minute I got on FB. In 2 weeks they start saying they are in love with you. Needed to get it out of his hands ASAP before company found out. Your story is similar to mine except I sent money through Western Union and Moneygram. I could hear someone in the background telling him to say something that I wouldn't know the difference. Also, he would ask what the weather was like 'over there'. I am so glad I googled catfishing oil field and found this sight Thank you for sharing your story Mine said he worked for Chevron off shore rigs. I think American police FBI and Interpol should cooperate urgently to stop such scammers. i know he has all the sighns i dont want to believe it.

He said he would have his boss take a video and send it to me. I said say something in Portugese but he kept making excuses. I knew it was a scam he kept begging me to wait until tomorrow because we were so good together. So I told him I was hanging up and doing a reverse google search as soon as we did. He said he was crushed because when you love someone the way he loves me you would do anything for them no questions ask.
He didn't want to because he had moved to Ohio as a two year old with his mom. The phone line went dead the poof, his FB account disappeared also. Made a speech on safety on rigs and two small oil companies awarded him 3 million for his speech. I told him for the safety of never meeting him for my family I wouldn't do it.
Ironically, he kept telling me how important honesty is to him. Then he started with oh baby, oh dear, oh honey bologna. But I have still be very much scammed as far as it sounds from this site. I really thought I had my guard up enough to catch such a game. The Federal Trade Commission Act authorizes this information collection for purposes of managing online comments.
Must have said that a dozen times this evening and we only talked for about twenty minutes. I said I wanted to see a photo of him with today's date but his phone couldn't take pictures. I'VE spoken with him via skype WITH video so I know his real face. :( If you have read enough stories on this site, you have no option BUT to believe he is a scammer. Oh, Devastated, I am so sorry to hear your heartbreaking story.

He's working for a company drilling oil as a engineer I know this must be a scam also. He said he had both lived in mountain view, ca and Jacksonville, Florida . Lost everything cause he needed an app for his project which cost 200 dolllars.
He even shown his family pictures, his son with him, I'm sure he used other people's. He fooled me for awhile until he wanted money to fly home.
Was raised in Switzerland, types with heavy accent and he can count in German. Even his fake daughter called me and we texted for months... I also notified a woman in TX he was scamming as he had me send money through her bank acct. I asked him so many questions and got little answers.
Though over the phone he sounds more Nigerian and even called me with street sounds in the background that sounded just like googled Nigerian street sounds LOL. Oh this one is a piece of work, he told me he was a 4 star General deployed in Iraq, a widower and had a 16 yo son. I am also afraid to report if this is a big ring operation. His email address is with gmail which makes his IP address appear to come from Mountain View, California . Just today, after not hearing from him in a week, he emailed me the bombshell.
Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims.
They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine?
