#1556 Jan 14, 2015 has a lot fake profiles, so many people with only phone numbers, no pictures, or after a few emails they want you to start using the personal emails, I had a very bad experience, be very careful, because even if you report them to Match, they don't really care what happened to you.

I joined Match last year it was my first time to getting in this stupid sites, with a bunch of fake profiles, i met a guy that showed real interest in me, he wrote a very impressive email and after a while i emailed him back he says that was from Miami, but his number was from New York,to make the story short after emailing a few to match email, he told me to start emailing him directly to his personal email,we started emailing and all of the sudden he had to go in a business trip to UK with his little girl, so he started texting me every single day and call me too. But after a few weeks he started having problems with his daughter getting sick he did not have enough cash and would't take care of the little girl unless he paid that was my first mistake, then he started having problems with customs he could not bring his goods unless he paid a fee another mistake from my part i have already sent him money and it has to be via Money gram and Western Union,and every time he supposed to come back it was a problem, he was in jail, they confiscated his passport, did not have cash, he could not access his account, and his travelers checks has expired, ok i know travelers check do not expired but he kept insisting that the banks there did not want to cash them, so he started having problems he could not pay the hotel, no money to eat and the poor little girl suffering,i have realized too late that it was a lie, i have already sent him a lot of money. I have reported him to Match but they don't care, they just take your money ans they have a lot of fake profiles, i still get messages from people with no pictures and weird Phone numbers, I have also reported this to the FBI, but here they don't really care about this and the should , also it should be a law for all these sites to be more careful to whom they open profiles.What can i say i never thought this would happened to me. By the way this guy is being around for more than 5 years, same phone number a tons of profile different sites, same pictures and nobody has done anything about it.

Unfortunately I joined Match.Com last year, it was my first time joining one f this sites, well I have the worst experience, i being scammed, I found out the person I was talking to is not real, has a fake profile, pictures etc, he is more than 60 sites and all over the world, but the phone numbers are in USA, but he is from Nigeria, well a few of them because it is not only one that you talk to. Match padoes not care what happened to you, because they just want to get your money, they work with a lot of fake profiles and who knows if they get a percentage of what they people get out of you.
I am emotionally and financially drained, I hope these despicable people get caught, damage is done already.
I hope this dating sites will be more careful with the signing

New name Jeffrey Allen, same garbage. Sound flakey, low and behold my intuition was on point and I found this sight. Beware of losers on
I am a free lance dealer of heavy duty machinery and i have been doing this for about 3 years. I was a project manager for a construction company before that though and i enjoy what i do. Work can be hectic sometimes though but then the money is good and i also get to travel alot which i love. What do you do?.
I am a mix of Italian, Scottish, and Irish. I was born in Brussels though i moved with my family to London when i was 18, i lived in London until my move here 5 years ago. I moved the states for work though i have always wanted to live in this part of the world so when the opportunity came, it was something i couldn't refuse. I have been divorced for 3 years and i have a 5 year old daughter living with her mother whom i have civil relationship with. She is a great mom and we both want the best for our daughter, her name is Nancy.. I don't have any family here because most of my family are scattered across Europe. I was raised by a single mom because my dad left when i was only 7 so i was raised by my mom who happen to be my best friend too. She lives in London and we have a fantastic mother and son relationship. I have a sister living in Dublin and we have a very close relationship too. Her name is Karen.
I enjoy the outdoors a lot though i haven't been doing a lot of outdoor stuffs much lately because you enjoy it more when you have someone to share it with. I love to bowl, camp, attend flea markets, zoos, amusement parks, and i like doing just about anything as long as you have someone to enjoy things with. That's the part i am missing from my life. I miss the person who sits across from you while you are dining out, going places and doing things together. They are correct when they say one is the loneliest number. I am friendly, outgoing, personable, funny, passionate, affectionate, witty and smart. I am a hopeless romantic and love the candles, flowers, cards and all the things that go with it including chivalry.
I am a guy who strongly believes in respect and that without respect, you can’t experience true love and generate a healthy relationship. I believe in a smaller “wow” when it is first a friendship and then a larger “Wow” later as it evolves into a beautiful loving committed relationship, I believe it’s not just what you are like on the outside, but more about what you are like on the inside so i am not looking for a barbie doll model but a woman with a beautiful heart. The attraction physically has to be there though so i just want a woman who is happy in her own skin.
I have been told that I am a great kisser! And of course, in return I will spoil you as well and treat you with the same respect that you treat me with. I am looking for the last love of my life so i want the total package and i am not willing to settle for anything less. I have been lied to, cheated on, stole from, and the games aren't fun either. Why can't adults be honest with one another instead of playing games? I never could understand that. With me you will find real honest, open communication and have got a heart of gold and plenty of love to give. So, i haven't scared you away yet then we are still on the right path.

Interesting recently a German civil engineer from Winston Salem NC claimed to have been awarded a 2 million dollar work contract in Ghana. He is a widower with a 7 yr old daughter, parents deceased, only sibling deceased. Requested an I phone 6 phone to be sent to him and once he got there he requested 2k for food , due to his exhaustion of all his funds on the contract bid and the hotel for a month. He claims has no laptop - no camera - cannot take pics with his phone. His FB name is Smith Emmanuel . He changed his email address on 4/10/15 - the day he supposedly flew to Ghana and refuse to provide flight information. Unbelievable lives these people lead trying to scam others. Needless to say he wanted to get married after chatting in line for 3,weeks. Ladies watch out for this load of crap- you can smell their scheme a mile away.

Very sad. I believe this character also goes by the name of Smith Emmanuel on FB. Heavy German accent - widower with 7 yr old daughter. Awarded 2 million dollar contract for a work assignment in Ghana. After chatting on line for three weeks proposed marriage and requested an iPhone 6 to be sent to him. Which he didn't receive obviously. On 4/10/15 when he supposedly flew to Ghana with his daughter refused to provide flight data. As soon as he allegedly arrived there said he spent his last 10k on a hotel for a month and was requesting atleast 2k to feed his daughter and for a nanny for her. Truly despicable!!!!!! You could smell his deceitful stench a mile away.

Ignore Lilly Palmer age 25 on . She claims to be a missionary in Nigeria. She won't answer any questions that you asks, but tries to cover by giving you scripture from the bible. Also talks about how "meeting on match is a sign from God."

Same picture different screen name , was Scott Odom, now some dude in Battle Creek Mi.
There must be around four different scammers working it. One is religious and well spoken, one is flirty, one is a dumb jerk that can't put three words together with out spelling or syntax errors. Speak patterns sound like they are from India. Question them and lovey do vey turns into a foul mouthed and aggressive bully. Hey, . Stop scamming US and yank these off your site already!!!!!!!!!

The first screening tool is clicking the right button of your mouse on each picture and google the images. Be vigilant!!

They are all over the internet, especially on dating sites. Make sure you google the images. Ask for more pictures if you still like what you read, then meet in person. Red flag if they can't meet you. Good luck! Wish more people find forums like this before being scammed.

True.. You can almost find them on any dating sites.. You just have to identify them and report their profile so dating sites would be free from fakes and scammers.. You can read more about this here >>>

This dating site changed my life, it was free with millions of members from all across the country, it never asked me for a credit card or to buy anything, i found the love of my life on this dating website, we are still together to this date, i encourage everyone to check this one out, its definitely worth it! You dont need a credit card or anything like that.

Need help please any one heard of a Diana Essel or Diana Eppel from Accra Ghana using match to scam? She convinced me to send her a $600 cell phone so we could Skype. We would Skype live but her home phone number to her country goes to a young man Perri Ali something like that. She claims to make hats and purses.
