Online Dating Scam – Teresa’s Story

stop_romance_scamsI have been scammed of $33,500 over the internet by a man who goes by the name Paul, a Dutch man, Civil Engineer and widower.

I met him online through Yahoo Messenger in October 2011. I was going through a difficult time personally and wanted to meet some friends. I knew people that had met great people online so I thought I would try it. Paul reportedly was born in Leiden, Netherlands, attended the University of Leiden and got his engineering degree in Amsterdam at the university. He was married to Kate who was killed in a vehicle accident along with his son, James, in 2008 in the west business district of Amsterdam. (He later changed it to his daughter, Jackie, and told me I misunderstood. Hmmmm.) That’s how he ended up in the US, because he lost “everything” and came here to recover.

He went to Dubai right after I met him online to bid on a huge building project (5 star hotels) that was to give him funds to start over and help support missions, especially orphanages overseas. He said he was a Christian and knew the Bible quite well. While he was there, he became ill and required hospitalization. That was the first request for money. He said his bid was taking longer than expected and with the needed funds for the hospital he was going to be jailed if I couldn’t raise the funds to help him. So I sent $1250 to a “friend’s wife, Monica” in the Philippines. Next it was a request for more, $2000 to the same person.

Then he wanted to come home and needed $5,000. He was stranded in London because his valuables, passport and money were stolen by an Indian taxi driver. Then he was taken in by a “cop” and his wife in Manchester where he did house work and cooked for them to pay for his room and board. He needed $15,000 to pay his immigration attorney and leave the UK for the US. I wired this to another “friend” a Chinese man from Shanghai who was going to fly the money to him in London.

I questioned him every time and he always had a good excuse. He always promised to pay me when he got here from his bank in Bristol, TN where he had cash in the lock box at Wells Fargo. I became suspicious and he got upset, telling me he was going to send my money back. By that time I had closed that account after I realized I sent him my personal info on the receipt he asked me to email to him.

He always played on my good heartedness. I sent him $1,000 for medicine for his high blood pressure and food. He left Manchester after he “got a letter from his bank” attesting to his wealth and identity and went to stay with his sister, Jan, in Hampshire, UK. He borrowed money from his sister against her home and she was going to lose her home the first of the year if he did not get back to the US to send her the money to pay off her debt. That’s when I sent the final $2000 cash for his plane ticket to his “friend” in Laurel, MD, US who owned a business called Friendly Car Sales.

He promised me he would not disappoint me or hurt me, etc. you know the rest of the lie…..

I was just like everyone else, lured in by this male siren who spoke the language of true love or so I thought. I have filed complaints with the IC3, US Secret Service, local Police Department and Bank of America Security Department. I was intrigued by the details that this thief has memorized or maybe its all in a book that he refers back too, I don’t know. I do agree that this guy is very, very good at what he does for a living. I have talked to him on the telephone and also on webcam. I was fooled by his looks and personalized details to me.

From: Blessing Bouma <>

Dearest Love,
I am more than happy of your reply to my mail. How is your day today? My Name is Blessing Bouma. single and never been married, I am 23 years old girl 5’6″ tall. i am from the capital of Rwanda in African before i came here in Senegal where i am seeking political asylum due to the civil war that was fought in my country some years ago. I am in sufferings and pains here in this camp and i really need to have a man by my side to encourage me and give me good advice in life and help me to come out from this situation.

My late father DR DAMIAN F BOUMA. was a politician and the chairman managing director of a ( F BOUMA INDUSTRIAL COMPANY LTD) Gold & Mine Ind in Kigali (the capital of Rwanda) before the rebels attacked our house one early morning and killed my mother and my father in cold blood.
It is only me that is alive now and i managed to make my way to a nearby country Senegal where i am living now as a refugee. This Refugee Camp is headed by a Reverend Father, i used his office computer to send you this email and i only enter his office when he is less busy in his office.

In this camp we are only allowed to go out only on and of the weeks. It’s just like one staying in the prison and i hope by Gods grace i will come out here soon. I don’t have any brother,sister or relatives now whom i can go to all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war the only person i have now is Rev.Cliff Peter who is the pastor of the (Christ The king of Churches) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the woman’s hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.

The Pastors Tel number is (+221 77-847-7478) if you call and tell him that you want to speak with me he will send for me in the hostel. As a refugee here i don’t have any right or privilege to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now took place. Please listen to this,i have my late father’s statement of account and death certificate here with me which i will send to you latter,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is !$6.7M(Six Million seven Hundred Thousand Dollars)

So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you.I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me. So in the light of above i will like you to keep it to yourself and don’t tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it. Remember i am giving you all this information due to the trust i deposed on you.I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,truth and hardworking. My favorite language is English but very fluently.Mean while i will like you to call me like i said i have allot to tell you more about my in my next mail. Attached here is my picture, Hoping to hear from you soonest.
Yours Forever in love Blessing.

NH Woman Loses $25,000 To A Nigerian Romance Scammer

broken_heart_online_dating_scamsBOSTON (CBS) – A New Hampshire woman who thought she’d found Mr. Right has been scammed out of $25,000.

Claudia says she followed her heart – even though her gut told her to stop.

“He took me to the cleaners,” she told WBZ-TV.

After beating breast cancer and losing her father, Claudia was looking for a fresh start.

She thought she found him on

“I looked at the profile and it was… almost too good to be true,” she said.

His name was Bennett Lawson, a good-looking and seemingly well-off man who claimed to be German-born but living in Nashua.

They couldn’t meet he said, because he was on business in Egypt.

“He sounded so legitimate and I wanted him to be everything he said he was,” Claudia admits.

As it turns out, he was a scam artist. For a month, the man convinced Claudia to send him money and electronics to an address in Ghana.

“Every time I sent him money, or he asked me for something, he would always come back if I said no or I didn’t have the money, he’d say ‘I thought you loved me. I thought you trusted me,’” Claudia said.

Claudia maxed out her credit cards.

Her month-long online fling cost her more than $25,000 before she realized Bennett was a criminal.

“I said because this is you, you’re scamming me. I lost all that money and I know I’m never going to get it back,” she told WBZ-TV.

Claudia is telling her story with hopes it will help her heal and to warn other online daters not to make the same mistakes.

“I’m just going to keep moving on. I have to,” she said. “Mr. Right is out there. And he’ll find me or I’ll find him.”

Claudia says when she looked up Bennett’s name on a scammer website and he had 81 hits. She reported him to international authorities. But if he really is operating in Ghana, it’s not likely he’ll ever be caught.

An online user corresponded with this scammer on IndonesianCupid.Com, a Indonesian version of OkCupid. He sent photo attachments as well but sadly, I don’t open attachments from unknown users. The email users intent was good. I just don’t open attachments for safety reasons. If anyone has received an email from this email address and has any photos, please send it but copy and paste it, versus sending it in an attachments. Thank you.

Hello dearest,

How are you doing? I hope you’re doing great? It’s a pleasure to hear from you again. To be sincere with you dear, I’m new on this dating stuffs and I have a friend who was blessed with the help of the site and he found a partner whom he recently got married to. He was the one who introduced me here. Hopefully this communication would bear a good fruit?

Well, I never involve myself in all these stuffs before but have heard a lot of testimonies regarding people who have been blessed through online dating sites and they found their soul mates here. It’s amazing dear. You are such a kind person I guess lol hehe, and it going to be nice to get to know each other well. I am glad to meet you here. May God help us as we are going further to know each other better. Meanwhile I want to tell you more about myself for your better understanding of who I am,

My name is Martin Buren. I was born on December 18, 1969.My height is 6ft 1″(187cm) and my weight is 76kg (171ib) i have never married before, i don`t have any kids yet. I am originally from Ireland United Kingdom, but live and work here in Ontario, Canada, I so much love God and put Him first in everything I do. I am an Engineer by profession, working in Belor Construction Ltd Ontario, I have been to Architectural job for past 15years, work as an Architectural Engineer, I design , construct houses, roads , bridges and shopping Malls etc. I do also the sales of building Materials. You can call me a contractor as well.

I Love my job, coz I do travel some parts of the worlds and living a good life with my family. I have always loved to be Independent in life. That’s why I decided to relocate to Ontario, Canada in search of greener pastures. I want you to know l’m not here to have fun or play. Just looking for a true love. Are you still interested? Life is good here but as you know, because of the global economic crisis, things have turned apart. But in all things, we are still enjoying life to the fullest.

My late father is from Austria but migrated to United Kingdom when I was young, may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. My late father was a honest and kind loving man till death. He was a philanthropist and had worked in various organizations in the past and assisted many groups both less privileged people morally and financially. My intention is to carry on with what my late father had left behind and I love charity work too. It is great to be involved in helping people, especially the unfortunate among us. As a matter of fact, he was the one that introduced me to the business of contracting and Architecture before I went to the University to study more about it, and I hope to use my office to get what rightfully belongs to me.

We are 3 in our family, 2 boys and 1 girl. But now I am the only surviving son of my family, because i lost my brother and sister in a car accident in 22nd of November 1994, I hate to remember this because whenever I remembered it my eyes will be full of tears, the only person I have now is my mother she is very old now 76 years, I pay a private nurse every month for taking care of her.

I don`t drink alcohol; I don’t smoke or do any drugs. I take care of my body both mentally and physically. I go the gym always to lift weights, run and do other forms of physical fitness. I don’t look for sexy or beauty, I believe a true beauty of a woman can be seen inside of her and not only the physical appearance. I don’t care about the race, culture or religion. I just need a simple woman who is ready to spend the rest of her life with me.

Furthermore, I am a fun loving guy who cares for the need of others. I am romantic, energetic, friendly and easy going guy, I love traveling and shopping. I like listening to music. On weekends, I normally go out with my friend to play football and golf. I sometimes go out to the sea side for refreshment and sightseeing. I do cook sometimes as I like cooking. Being happy always makes me feel young every day. I am so glad for my life today and really thank God for all His blessings upon my family.

Before enclosing this message, I would like to remind you once again that distance or relocation won’t be a barrier. I will love to visit you when the time comes or invite you here in Canada. Waiting to hear from you when time permits you, please I would like to have your own introduction as much as you can share with me.

I am willing to welcome them all .Let’s forget the past, believing that God knows us and has a great things in store for us in the future. I hope you do not get bored reading everything about me in this email, I must tell you all about myself.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards
Martin Buren
From Ontario, Canada
