Faking it — scammers’ tricks to steal your heart and money
He sent me a face pic and he might bee ur boyfriend. Maybe he cheated on you to. I wouldn't listen to him. Melanie, It's been awhile since your comment posted but I just wanted to add obey your thoughts not your heart especially on this. I can relate because some lovely lady supposedly from the pics got to my heart online and told me she wanted to be my wife. So she said I wasn't caring and all that and that was a huge turn off. We stopped talking for awhile and she got in contact with me again asking me for my name and address to send me money to pick up for her at Western Union to send to her another strategy stated above the comment section which I almost agreed to because she knew how to pull on my heart strings.
So, I did some more extensive research online and found out she indeed was a scammer by seeing her pretty face on a few pics listing her under a different name on a site dedicated to exposing online scams and scammers. My mind kept telling me this was a scam or more than likely a scam and not be stupid and send money to a person I've never eve met in person or over the phone. So, my advice is don't follow your heart or emotions, do what you know to be right and act on the truth.
The girl from Australia that sent it was supposed to be Carol Hale I have been talking to a guy who goes by Thomas M Brooks at first he just wanted friendship and within a couple weeks she says he's in love with me , want a to marry me, etc, etc. Supposedly he lives in or is from Dallas Texas says he has one daughter named Cindy who is 21, a son named Alexander who is 17 and a mother who all live with him in his house in Texas.
He says he is a marine engineer working in Egypt and for weeks he told me he was coming home on March 20, now he has asked for an iTunes card which I got for 60 bucks, and now it's a new iPhone, with a sum card, he claims the phone he has got dropped and doesn't work well, then he asked for dollars , and it went from that to , and now , and just Las night on the phone he told me he has to pay for his paper work for his vacation leave by the 17th.
He's real smooth operator and the way that he went on ask me about my family and my job and my life, and told me about his freelee sharing information about his life and his kids and his parents and his uncles and where he grew up and etcetera etcetera. But now he's asking for more and more and more and when I explained to him that I don't have the money for it he tries to lay a guilt trips on me while he's doing his best to get home and he's doing it for me only because he wants to see me so badly.
I have invested my heart in him based on the initial conversations with him over the last few weeks other now he's starting to ask for things money and real expensive phones and it just keeps getting to be more and more and more and when I try to tell him that there needs to be a compromise he just insisted he needs my help. When I asked him why he can't use his own money he tells me that he's on a rig and he has to be helicoptered in and he has no access to get off and no access to his accounts, and then everything comes in on Fridays through a third-party who brings them the things that they need to live on these gas or oil rigs or whatever it seems legitimate I met him on Facebook and his picture seems legitimate but he has very little information on his Facebook page.
I have tried doing searches on his name and his Gmail account I have tried doing searches on his actual phone number, and I have even try to do a reverse search on his picture but I have gotten nothing I do notice that when we talk on the phone he is always professing love to me and saying that he wants to marry me wants to be with me he wants to give me kids he wants me to move to Texas with him blah blah blah, although he cannot give me any definite no definite dates, when I asked for pictures he gets defensive and says that he can't use phones around outside around the tankers because it could explode and that I want him to explode.
When I ask him for a picture of his bunker where he sleeps he said that he couldn't take pictures with his phone because it wasn't working right.
When I asked him if he had any pictures and his kids on his phone so that I could see them he said that he did not have any pictures on his phone because his phone does not have a card whatever that means, when I have asked him to give me his mother's address so that I can write her letters he insisted that he wanted to be there when I met his mother for the first time because it would be more special.
I am now becoming very skeptical of him and I do not believe that he is coming home from Egypt I feel like he thinks that he's going to get all these things for me which I have not given him yet and then all the sudden going to cut off complete communication or make up some excuse not to be able to come home and try to keep prodding me for money. I'm frustrated because I cannot find any information anywhere on any of these sites regarding this guy but I do believe that he is a scam artist.
LOL like I said my heart is involved now. And part of me wants to believe that he is genuine because most of the things he says seem very genuine so right now I am at a loss as to what to do does anybody here I have any information regarding this guy has he ever contacted you under the name of Thomas M Brooks. Is that is to the name on his profile for Facebook if anybody is curious enough to look to see if he is someone that they have had encounters with I would be curious to know if anyone on here has had encounters with this particular person.

They can not be traced or monitored and the most important. Is it is a crime for a us service man to ask a civilian for anything monetary no real service. Please, please if u r romanced like u've never been romanced in ur life with flowery love language complete w love songs.. I was finessed like a violin. I am intelligent, trained in psychology but my heart strings were tugging pretty hard. He blocked me, in fear. Must have scared him too. Yeah I've had 3 girls in like 2 weeks say they were working for Unicef and that they're managing properties in Nigeria if they need money for their phone for a ticket out of there.
But I have gotten girls to give me their address and full name a way to call them and actually talk to them but I keep telling myself that it's a scam that It could never work, then again I know some people who have been very successful if you actually talk to them on the phone and you send things in the mail back and forth that's pretty cool you gotta start off as a pen pal.
The reason I'm on here is because there is a Russian that's where she loves me send me a new picture everyday and all I have to do is pay for her passport she can afford her ticket we have spoken on the phone with a few times plenty of email I just don't know if it's possible. Back in July, I had a friend request of some lady. The profile Pic was just a picture of a boat and words about Jesus. But looked through friends list and couldn't see any mutual friends. So thought I'd accept request to see if I could find out more.
Eventually saw a picture of her, and well let's say I was pleased I accepted her, she was quite pretty. But I never got in touch. Then one day out the blue, just had a 'Hi' so messaged her back about HR later asking how we know each other and said is she from west of England or Midlands. And she didn't reply, just sent another hello.
And I vaguely remember, during EU referendum I was posting comments in forums about wanting to leave and think She liked one of the comments. So I asked her if it was through that, and said yes and it's shame we left. I asked why she sent me a request when I'm glad to leave. But just kept Chatting n having laugh for quite a while.
Why would you travel so far without money to collect it? And why can't they deduct it off the inheritance. But after I said I couldn't afford to and we've not known each other online long and never met. I don't want to. And she stopped messaging me. And eventually after asking why she not talking she said what's point being friends if I can't help. So I said, so you befriend me just for money. But when I said see it from my point of view. I said if I'd known her in person, I may have her a small amount as tester.
And if she did move to uk, I'd like to meet up. But now all of sudden today, she's in a new relationship. How' she manage that with guy in US when she meant to Be in Nigeria. Elizabeth M Cowell is the name. My husband of 44 years is in a Nigerian RomanceScam. I don't know how long it has been going on.
I found out 2 days ago because he wanted to mention to me if I see a large amount of money deposited in our acconts it's not ours. It's for a friend in Nigeria in the Peace Corp. I immediately told him it's a scam. Why would your friend ask to do it. I immediately closed the account since it wasn't coming in until yesterday morning.
I opened another account. When I got home, I had to tell him. He was screaming and yelling at me. It came out it was for a woman in Nigeria in Uncef who is was in love with. Yesterday, I changed all accounts and put them in my daughrer's and my name.

I called and made a compliant with the FTC, called PayPay, and the police in our township to put a report in. This is money laundering and fraud. It's illegal money coming out of Nigeria to Brazil. My husband doesn't think this is a scam. He is so "in love", he trust it is her.
