I was well off financially because my husband died suddenly & I was without family and was very lonely but had no idea how to proceed with my life (& money).

His old profile says that he went to Dayton University, now he has a new profile on Facebook with the young lady on his back and he says she is his daughter who looks totally different from the other girl in the old profile. I was laughing so hard at one yesterday that I answered him back with my own " sad, widow, lonely" story.
I went on a dating site about a month and a half after leaving my alcoholic husband. After I blocked him I started getting numerous requests from scammers. I finally realized that he had my user name so I went into my profile on WWF and changed my user name and it stopped. Roland Smith contacted me on Instagram and told me he was on an oil rig. I remarried and was married 40 years and my husband died with Cancer. I'm not sure if I will ever get over this but I am trying so hard. He has tried having someone else call but if I don't recognize the number I don't answer any more. He went for my IRA saying all along he would pay it back to me but it was all lies. He has my friend in a lot trouble as she has given him her life savings and is headed for a divorce.
This guy looked great, he talked to me on the phone & texting, things no man ever told me. I feel stupid, but thankful I didn’t lose any money. You still might get an email from him because they can be persistent. First he said he was off the coast of Germany, and later said he was off the coast of Texas. I was a widow for 10 years, not even looking for another man. I fell madly in love with his (someone's) picture, sweet voice, kind words and promises. It is unfortunate that we can not go on Facebook (where mine found me.) I would not dare go on a dating site or play words on my computer. Ladies, Please listen to the things being said on here. I reported him so they can check it out and get rid of him. YOU have a duty to;1 Bait them 2 Hook them 3 keep them hooked 4 report them early to face book so that we they cannot come back on with their IP address before you go to hangout or other chat place and also report them to He started out with working on a oil rig and having kids and being alone and raising them alone.
I will be honest & admit I did get hit for a few thousand but lesson learned.
I mentioned our "mutual" friend (of course she is female). Seems like a very good catch and he will relocate to singapore in a month's time. He wants me to send money to his agent to complete paper work so he can get done with his contract on time. I have been talking to him for about 3 months, he has asked me for i Tune cards, and money, I refused. And, if you can find his information, report him to the FBI. I lost some money to him - not as much as these others but the heartbreak & deception hurt so much more than the $$. Yes I had the "my son is crying on the phone every day for school equipment he needs.
Once again, I have been away for awhile but, the stories are all still the same. I've noticed similar things with these scammers, they try to make you feel guilty for questioning them, they turn it around, one accused me of being self centered, money driven, like to see people suffer, money rules my life etc. I've been through a difficult year and admit you could say I'm vulnerable and these guys have been gap filling but I have to remind myself they are fake. Gray was always very concerned if I’ve had a ‘blissful night sleep’. And he would end a chat by saying ‘soft kisses and hugs’. This progressed to requests for multiple Itunes cards and more and more money. Steve, I can’t thank you enough for creating this site! [Steve: you are welcome, and its wonderful to know the site helped you in some way. His wife died 2 years ago and now he is ready to find love. He hasnt ask for money yet, since im very poor hahahahaha. From day one I knew something wasnt right with all that lovely nature and falling in love 3 days after he saw my picture. Parents divorced and he was sent to live with his aunt in Poland and Indian Uncle. His phone is connected to a Danville, CA Phone messenger service and when I called it would sound tinny as if in a tunnel almost like when you call a foreign country. Watch for phrases that likely are my queen, missing you like crazy. In no time he is madly in love with you and wants to marry you. He needs an ITunes gift card, or his child needs something or his equipment broke and he needs big money for repairs. Don't let the picture fool you because behind it is a man from Nigeria. Please......ladies....a REAL man that loves you and does NOT ask for money. I'd like to get my hands on that devil man and his whole crew!
