Anyone having any dealings with jerry_taylor11@yahoo.com watch out. Aint no fool like an ole fool but this ole fool was not quite that stupis.
He was on Chemistry.com last week, he writes beautiful incredibly romantic letters but when it comes to the bottom line he wants money because the hotel manager locked him out due to a dissagreement and the has no passport or papers, claims to have a ten year old daughter.
Pleae be careful; he did not get a chance to get anything from me but it made me realize how vunerable lonliness can make you.
I had looked at this site, and then went back later to check it out and found he had pulled the same scam on Match.com .
Yes so very true!! A great con artist at work!!

Robert Carlo from Burlington VT gave me the exact same story. His email sounds very scripted. He said he just moved to Burlington VT 2 years ago and gave me the same story about the children. He never answered what happened to his wife or what he does for work. It sounds very illegitimate.
I was contacted by a Robert Carlo through Facebook. He said he was born in Spain; brought to Texas for adoption; has a home in New York but currently in Malaysia as a contractor. His wife and unborn child died in the 9/11 attacks. He was always asking "tell me how I can get into your heart more." The I love yous came as well. He looked at my friends list and is now talking to a classmate of mine.

They're good at what they do. Everyone is a doorway to 5-10 more people. So do your best to shut them out. The stories are all the same.

Cut off the communication immediately. It's a scammer in Nigeria. Nigeria and Ghana Africa are # 2 & #3 worst scamming countries in the world. They do this as a "job"...and will scam anyone.The stroeis are all a little differne but have many of the same components.
I had a recent similar encounter with a supposed "Richard Strauss" on Match.com . He sent me his email so we wouldn't have to continue through the dating service. My Match contract was expiring so I agreed.
This was a 6 week encounter and Richard was supposedly a widowed Norweigian man who lived in Kansas City (I live in KC too). He said he was an independent contractor building buildings around the world. He was putting in a bid on a job in Ontario, Canada and was then called to NYC for another presentation about an earlier bid. He told me the bid went well and he was hired to go to Ghana, West Africa to get all the papers signed. He would be back home to KC KS and then we would meet in person. He professed his love for me early on and hopes for a future together. He sent all kinds of romantic emails. I was suspicious and asked lots of questions. Everything I asked him, was answered with a believable answer. He even sent a KLM airline ticket confirmation from Ghana to Kansas City with his return flight info. We talked by phone many times and I believed his Norweigian accent! Long story short, when "his wallet was stolen in the cab going to the airport", he didn't have the $$ to pay for all his airfare. I offered to "loan" him the money until he got home to KC. I ended up wiring $1,200 to him in Ghana. He seemed like such a kind, sweet Christian man in his emails. He even agreed for me to pick him up at the airport. "Can't wait to hold you in my arms and kiss you", he said. Well, he wasn't at the airport, and I never heard from him again. He cancelled the ticket and collected the money himself. Not only was this a set back financially, but emotionally I had already invested a lot of my time and energy in getting to know him - thinking he was the real deal! I was hurt! After much research I've discovered that this is a typical scam - so PLEASE BEWARE. DON"T WIRE ANY MONEY - no matter what they tell you. If they are a US citizen, send them to the US embassy for help.Best thing to do is call them on their scam and cut off all ties.

hello,
i'm new to online dating and i just ran across a very curious girl. she sent me a message on match.com professing interest in me and how much she liked my profile. and she suggest i might email her to her yahoo address instead of through match.com .
after reading that initial match.com message, i tried clicking on her profile but it is unavailable (though her thumbnail pic still shows up in my "connections" page).
but i'm curious...her first message was very nice...the thumbnail looks good (from what i can see). so i email her yahoo address. we learn abit about eachother. she say she was born in the states. grew up in the UK. now resides in the same state as me in a city an hour or so away. she's modeling right now in nigeria...but is coming back home in one week. she plans to quit modeling.
we've exchanged 7-8 long emails in the last 2 weeks or so. and she's coming back home in one week. and wants to meet me when she gets back. no signs of typical scams...like mentions of money or tragedy or anything like that.
the thing that makes me suspicious is that her grammar is a bit off every once in a while...she's fallen for me far to quickly...she attributed some said things to me that i never said...one email contained a portion of stuff that was plagarized and used as her own...
what do you guys think? should i meet this person? or will that just wind me up in a body bag?

Is anybody as appalled as I am that DateHookUp would have a banner on their home page that advertises cheap calls to Ghana?

Probably too good to be true. Keep your guard up, do not share personal info and or cash!,,,, remember they are trolling for lonely people. On a brighter side there are good men out there.

That sounds a lot like the guy that tryed to get money from me, except he had a big contracting job in south africa and he would be there for a year and wanted to take me with him. He had all kinds of things go bad first his mom died the day he was leaving and then the airlines lost his lougege and all his money and cards and laptop abd phone was in there and he was now stranded in south africa.So of course he wanted money to get the contracting job and to get home to go to his moms funaral, he wanted 3000$ I told him I didnt have it he said 800 $ would do the job I could western union it to a hotel to someone that worked at the hotel named sunday imod or something like that and not to him (Robert Steve Jeff) He got more and more mad every time told him no and tryed to lay a gilt trip on me . He would email me all kinds of real and sometimes not so real looking forms to try to prove who he is but not his passport or id or anything like that. Watch out for a Robert Steve Jeff on match or yahoo. There sure is a lot of evil people out there and i would not want to be them when they are standing before god. Stay strong, they will get there's in the end.
On a better note, although I was almost scamed on match.con, I also meet the man I love very much and we are both in love with eachother and very happy and both of us are enjoying our lives together. Dont give up on finding your special someone on match.con just be very careful and use your brain and not your hart, at least till you know its a real person and have meet eachother.
I guess you have to slog threw the scumbag evil scamers to find the man of your dreams.

Good luck and be careful.
