Hello, I know James Smith from Match.com . Turns out he is legitimate. A reputable Gem and Gold dealer. He is a wonderful person and man. His son is equally as wonderful. What evidence do you have to support anything otherwise ?... I would like to know. Too often people think the worst of people before they think the best. James has been a loving friend and honest and yes with very God driven values. Agiain ... What evidence do you have to support you warnings about James.?

I was wrong about James Smith. He has scammed me. I am so foolish and I was tricked badly. All of his emails IP Addresses traced to San Francisco area in California when he said he lived in Connecticut and was traveliing in Ghana. Gave me two false addresses in Connecticut. I found three conflicting profiles on Facebook which had the same picures he sent to me. So I don't know who this guy is. Needless to say I am recovering slowly.

hopefully your story helps someone else avoid such a fate. In the end when there are too many red flags making it seem too good to be true
It normally is

The funny sly thing is .... he still contacts me, claims to be stuck in Ghana, and vows to return and pay me back .... how strange is that .. you would think he would disappear !!! Yes ? I have turned off the spicket and he still keeps trying ... professing fondness. I even explained to him that I know what he has done and he still deny's it. What a crazy world ....! I just wanted to meet a nice man.... and thought I had.

Thank you for your interest in giving me advice. I appreciate your time.

Did the free weekend on Chemistry.com and received no less than 6 of these types of approaches!! A gorgeous man who says he earns fantastic money in a great job with a great education BUT his spelling, grammar, and syntax clearly scream "are you kidding me??????" The situation will only get worse until people wise up and quit falling for it!

Agreee with ^^^ 100%. Unfortunately quite a few ppl ignore the red flags that pop up in each encounter enough to allow a persuasion of something that would otherwise be quashed in mere minutes

More on James Smith, Mineral Scientist. The pictures James Smith posted of himself on Match.com are not of him. He stole those pictures from another person on MySpace. I managed to search the pictures through Google Images and also got in touch with the person who had his pictures stolen by James Smith. I explained my whole story and he emailed and called me and webcamed with me to help me out so I would be certain he was not James Smith. I will not mention his name here as to protect him. What a great person. I also found three fake profiles with his photos on facebook under the name of Donald Apolito. They has since been deleted by the facebook team. The best part is I confronted James Smith via telephone. He continued to deny it and then broke down and told me what he had done and apologized via webcam. Then he asked me for 1800 so he could return from Ghana, meet me and pay back all the money he owes me. I said no to the 1800 and said when he returns he could send a check for the money he owes me to my attorney's office. He began to demand more money and I ended the call. He's psychotic, down right dangerous. The good news is I made a great new friend from the rightful owner on those pictures. I'm gonna write a book.

i am new to this dating game, and what an experience, i had a girl (orphaned apparently) that was working in malaya as a volunteer,at first she said she was australian, later when i questioned her she said she was american, she told me she was a few days over her visa, and had to come up with $475 and guess where it was coming from, yes me,i got a bit suspicious so i got in contact with the australian customs department as to why malaysia just didn't deport the girl, it was at that time the customs department told me that it was a scam and not to send any money, it only took her two weeks to hit me up. was she genuine or scanner, possibly the latter

Do not trust anyone from Nigeria or London, this scammer was instantly wanting my yahoo account and wanted me to call him. After several emails, he told me that he was attacked in Nigeria on the street and did not have enough money after his wallet was stolen, to pay the hotel bill, they were going to throw him out on the street. Part of the story was he was widowed, his wife was killed in a car crash, he has a son, etc. I sent him the website link,"How To Tell If You are Talking to a Nigerian Scammer". He said to stop bothering him, he did not know what I was talking about.

I told him not to play with other people's feelings.

Be careful...

Hi,
I too have been overwhelmed with emails from people claiming they want a serious relationship with me. Their story of where they live compred to the original profile does not match, they also have inconsistencies in their messages....BE VERY CAREFUL...these are stolen profiles, they hack into people's profiles and start contacting others, their aim is to scam money from you. Someone has now hacked into my profile, changed my email address and password and are obviously now contacting men with my profile and will fabricate some sad story to scam money from unsuspecting lonely men.....BE VERY CAREFUL

It is bad enough that we get contacted by these scammers. It is even worse that our profile is hacked into, our details and information is being used, that they are hiding behind our pictures and profiles and using it to scam other people.

My advice would be to not tell her any personal details, but instead take her to coffee and see if that really is a girl interested in you. There are a lot of scammers out there and you should be careful, even when dating on reputable sites like okcupid.com and http://www.fitnesspersonalads.com/ .
