Beware of this man

For a few years a Nigerian scammer has been active on various dating sites, including asiankisses.com.de. One of his IP has been identified as 82.128.16.115=Benin in Nigeria.
He uses a fake handsome photo and his modus operandii is to contact girls with a full page detailed letter about himself with all the carefully researched button pushing points...very professional as to touching a woman's heart. He changes details from time to time depending on which website he is on. Usually he is single and a widower (creates sympathy about his wife dying) and has a good job like an electrical engineer. Currently he signs off as "Dave". He makes his letters quite poetical and excellent English.
My ex wife in Australia got sucked into this scam after we seperated and lost a lot of money. She was even featured on a current affairs programme about this.
this guy has been exposed on romancescam.com and others yet asiankisses.com still lets him prey on victims through its website.

Phindili Nxapayi

The real name of Dip Morris Hens and Alien Wheat is most probably Phindile S Nxapayi using both FNB and ABSA bank accounts but favouring FNB. Could also be using the name S Mabote using an ABSA account. He uses prepaid MTN phones and "loses" them when things get hot.

Exactly... US Embassies do not use Hotmail addresses...

There are many indications that this is a scam:

A US ambassador should know how to write proper English.

A US Embassy does not use Western Union for payments.

Why does he ask for your name and address? If he has millions of dollars belonging to you and are bringing them, he should know who you are already...

The US Embassy in Nigeria is not located at 11 Garik Road. It took me 10 seconds using Google to find the correct address (Plot 1075, Diplomatic Drive)

Why is the US Ambassador acting as a postman, delivering packages with millions of dollars? It's not part of his job to do that...

I can go on forever, but the most obvious indication that this is a scam is the usual:

Government officials, who doesn't even know your name, will never contact you via e-mail and offer to hand over millions of dollars.

Scam from friendfinder site

Please watch out for this person if he ever send you an email, because he is fake. This is his first email will send to any lady out there looking for love on the www.friendfinder.com website:

My name is Harrison Gerald and i am an American man who stays in Santa Clara, California, email: [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']harrison.gerald47@yahoo.com [/font].....
I am widower with two beautiful kids,Joan aged 3 and Kyle aged 2 year and one month... I am not a lover of internet sites but i had to try it out since i am a very private person who does not have too many friends except work associates..
I lost my wife during child birth, she died few minutes after our son Kyle was born on July 25th 2009 after she suffered multiple complications in her uterus... She was a great part of me because she was my only friend, confidant and family. Both my parents are deceased and i have only one sister who is a retard(it hurts me to say that) but aye shes the only sister i have got and the only family too. Like i said earlier i am a very private person and i do not keep friends it is not because am not a social person but because my kids needs all of my friendship and attention and i try my best to take em out when we are not traveling for work.



I am not a lover of internet sites but your profile really caught my attention.I want something serious and am not looking for jokers and flatters but a
serious relationship because not only does my children need a mother now,i too need someone to help me share in everything i have owned.

I am a petroleum and gas processing engineer by profession and also a big contractor to Shell Oil(S.P.D.C) and i also own my company, a very small company with a staff strength of 7 people at the moment
that deals on petroleum products haulage,rig construction and maintenance,pipeline fixing and maintenance,
oil spillage cleaning and general oil merchandise.It is not a very big company just 7 staff for the now but we are looking to expand and add
more brilliant minds to our operations when it is necessary.

I love adventure and spending quality time with my family is also one of my greatest hobby but the nature of my job makes me travel a lot and since the kids are very young and i do not have any one who can look after them for me when i travel, i usually take them with me anywhere i have a job to do and this is the reason why i need a wife ASAP and also why they need a mother . Green is my favorite color and I also
watch a lot of movies and read a lot of books too.Sidney Sheldon is my favorite writer(God rest his sweet soul)
I hope to read from you again and may i please beg of you to open a yahoomail account so we can view webcams and you can also see my kids and if God willing your kids to be in the near future. Every other information you need about me i shall give to you as we continue to get along and know each other.....


Kisses,
Harry

After a few email exchange, he will mention about his million dollars contract in Nigeria, then he got the contract and heading there, then he will keep quiet for a few days and send you an email asking for help cause of his son Kyle got really sick and got admitted into hospital and he needed money badly, he will ask you send him $3000 through western Union money transfer under the name:
--
NAME: LOUIS MULU

ADDRESS: 147 Jakpa Road, Effurun. Delta State Nigeria.
---
after he got your money, he will praise you up the sky for saving "his son". then promise to "return back your money". But soon, he will talk about his business got bad, he need more money from you $10K or $100K. if you denied, he will pretend that his business got help from Louis Mulu brother and everything is fine. then he will say his business contract has done but he need to pay 10%deposit into the Ireland bank:
--
Name of Bank: Permanent TSB bank

Name of account: Onome Humphrey Ugbawa

Swift Code: IPBSIE2D

IBAN: IE64IPBS99073387214205

Bank Address: Oliver Plunkett Street,Mullingarco.Westmeath.Ireland


---

for his cheque $2.9million dollars which he didn't have and ask for your help to wire $290K for him.
If you deny helping him, he will use his children and begging you, till the last option he will ask you to help him is get him a ticket to get out Nigeria for $15K to $5K.

If you still deny him, he will disappear forever and forget about the money he did own you from the beginning.

This is my real life story from the man who used the fake name belong to somebody else in Santa Clara, CA, US. My friend went to "his address" which he gave is

1009 Harrison Street, Santa Clara, CA95050

it's belong to somebody else. His mobile number is +1 408 663-9894 always off, you would never can get in touch with him when you call.

Please watch out for this person, he's 100%fake and a great scammer.

Re: Scam from friendfinder site

It's amazing how many american born and educated people have such poor grammar and spelling. It means one of 2 things:

American public schools are in even worse shape than most people think.

OR

Someone is not telling the truth about their childhood, life history and their pictures.

Beware of this man

I went on Match.com and recieved numerous winks, and IM's. one man stood out, and I began to email with him on a daily basis. My friend was sure he was a scammer and had me read info. on what to look for.

There were several red flags, but he never asked me for money, and I even told him, if he was trying to scam me, to walk, on, I was poor.

Well, a coworker was able to find tha he is a scammer on romancescam.com
He went by a different last name, with a different email

He has used the alias's Raymond Alem, and Raymond Clayton. Claims to live in UK, is a civil engineer, has a 10 yr. old daughter, is widowed, and his last relationship cheated on him.

He is good at romanceing you, and I started to believe maybe it was real.
However I never completely trusted him, and I was right.

So please be aware of a dark haired, very attractive man, with a little girl, in the picture with him. He's not real

That is great advice from a good friend.

Not every scammer will ask for money, some want you to volunteer to give them some. Others will wait weeks or months before the "horrible robbery", "tragic accident" or "family emergency" happens.

You just mentioned 5 of the biggest red flags of a Romance Scammer.
1) Widowed
2) one child, a daughter
3) last relationship cheated
4) civil engineer
5) "lives" in UK

Quote:

Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".

Thanks!!
