  2. Hello (again) this is my 2nd attempt at this posting,
    There is/was a man on Okcupid (user name swtmark01) goes my the first name Dale.
    He will romance you with his gentle words…be careful people.
    He claims to be traveling and working in the UK, Liverpool (06-06-17)
    Very handsome (or the pics are copied) salt and pepper hair, fashionable.
    Eventually he will ask for money (his exact words were a helping hand).
    His writing skills are excellent (few mistakes).
    He claims to be a Spanish-American.
    The internet is a jungle (take care and never send money overseas).
    Peace,
    Sue

  3. Okcupid online name is/was Dale Mark Sherwood. He is a charmer with his poetic emails and he’ll confess his interest and passion to find a partner (early on).
    He is alllegedly a Spanish-American, in the rig construction business (job location 06/06/17 UK Liverpool). The pictures he used were of a striking man (salt and pepper hair) clean cut. These scammers have a familiar pattern: They’ll ask you to go off the site, widowed, a child, international business, traveling, and a disaster strikes (send me money-honey). I didn’t fall into his trap but people please beware.

    • also his name is Chris, he will ask you to email him- his email is mrchris190@gmail.com. I am so freaked out bc I have been emailing him from an email that actually uses my name. I was not aware of this until now… gosh I am so stupid but I am so glad I figured this out before anymore information was given out. If anyone has any ideas on how to protect my self now, any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

      I feel so stupid…

  5. Karen:
    Scammer Benson Bryant, civil engineer widowed with 2 kids….Uses a Paolo Barroso’s
    pics of him and his kids to hide behind. Said he was from Dallas, Texas and moved to Malaysia after winning a huge contract. Problems started right away when he said he had to pay Ministry of Works x amount, then it was the bank to open an account. Sent pics of his contract and then his cheque. Got scammed big time by these lowlifes. Curse them to H.
    Anyway never never never never send money unless meeting them first and having them checked out. Scumbags take advantage of good people.

  7. In the last week, I have been contacted by multiple scammers. One (alexanderz), claimed he was an engineer in Tampa headed to Malaysia to build a road in a few hours. (First red flag)..asked for my phone number to keep in touch (second red flag). One (can’t remember his name) immediately asked to move chat to google hangouts and to video chat. English wasn’t good and was very insistent. The others only got to the “give me your number or text me here” after 3 messages before I blocked/reported. The other red flags for those were that their profile wasn’t local and phone numbers they have were known magic jack numbers.

    Beware of a guy (might not even be a guy) using screen name Chris_me11 on okcupid and on yahoo using martinschris92. Professed his love of finding the one he is meant to be with “FOREVER”. Claimed to be an engineer in an oil rig in the pacific by Africa. (Dude seriously do your homework that’s the Atlantic). Would be coming home in a few weeks. Talks about being a widow of 5 years was married for 12. On profile claims to have a child but when asked its a godson. Lives in Tulsa, ok but grew up in Italy. Both parents have passed away he’s an only child. Went to college in Italy & Canada. After chating through yahoo. Claimed he wanted to come home but needed money for consignment of $3500. He needed it in 2 equal payments of $1750 through western union. He couldn’t get off the oil rig but he had a co-worker that could. Currently have him believing I’m getting the money and will be sending it to him. Haven’t responded lately and it’s driving him nuts!!!!

    Attached is the profile picture he sent me. Very handsome man’s picture is being used. Wish I knew how to give him a heads up.

    • Scam alert!!! I’ve been chatting with a guy from sugardaddy.com, seemed very nice, personable, exchanged emails (martinschris92) and text messages, i got weary when he started to refer to our conversing as “us”, works on an oil rig, he lives in colorado but is up in Canada with his 16 yr old son doing work related stuff, wants to come back home but ran out of cash, really, who does that, he says i am the only left for him to contact, he feels so bad, he’ll pay me back, blah blah blah…I started searching online about scams and look what i found. I told him i couldn’t help him out as i haven’t even met him yet. After i read these messages i sent him a text saying, “if i were to send you money how would i do that, you would give me your account # and i would wire it”, trying to call him out. I have asked him a couple of times “why don’t you use your credit card” but he skirts around that question and answers the other ones. How stupid does he think I am? Thought i would post this for all to see. If he is on sugardaddy.com wouldn’t you think he would not run out of money, Moron.

  13. Yesterday a man posing as an engineer named Joseph Richards from okcupid asked me to wire him $5,000. He told me he was on an oil rig in the Irish Sea and had equipment he needed to get out of British Customs but was short the money. He claims his business is in Omaha called Joed Engineering but that he grew up in the Czech Republic. He did this after three weeks of trying to win my trust. Beware. This guys English is pretty good and he has honed his skill. I will copy and paste his email to me below.

    Hey baby,

    The equipment is with the British customs and I need to get them out before Friday to avoid paying demurrage. My money is tied down in Italy due to my last project in which I had to pay my workers with my personal funds. You can wire the money to my clearing agent’s representative who is the States because if you want to send the money to England, It will take up to 3 to 5 working days before I receive the money. Whatever financial penalty you will have to pay, I will pay for the penalty as I am returning your money to you. Baby, I will really appreciate it if you can use any other excuse to collect the money from your brother, I have never asked anyone for help before and I really feel shy about this. I am comfortable knowing I told only you but with a 3rd party knowing, I don’t feel comfortable with it.

    Love always,

    Joe

  14. I reported the scammer before I posted here on August 13, and his account is still active. I guess all we can do is to raise awareness, so I appreciate all the information being given.

  15. Ran across a scammer on okcupid name Terry 1234 e-mail rapptt@Yahoo.com. Sent me a solider picture of himself….so he say…saying he is Terry Austin and he is a captain of 200 men in the Kabul Afghanistan US army. So when I asked him for his APO address to send him a care packet, or he liked that, but told me to send it to a third party address. When I refused to send it, trust issues come about…so I went further and ask him to take a picture with him in it and hold up a sign in his hand with my name on it and that day date on it. He sent that the next day, but it was photo shop….so I ask for a ending…mil e-mail address to no prevail he ignored my request. So I called him on it, he took his profile down from okcupid. Ladies if they are posing as military men you can contact CID army military compliant line and file a compliant. If the real solider picture that they are using is in the military they will (CID army military police) will locate the real solider and let him know that his identify has been compromised. At least the real solider which is a victim as well will be aware. Our brave soldiers should not be dishonored by liars, thieves and scammers such as what we are experiencing. What has the world come to when you can even cyber date….trying to bring humor to the mess of this… LOL

    • I must of hit the trifecta of scammers on okcupid. If you get an message from Christopher Charles, John Walker, or Jerry Morey please be cautious. Two of the three claim to be soldiers and within a few days would ask you to provision a satphone so they can call you. They would pay half and you would pay half for a $2000 satphone. Christopher Charles used a tragic accident happen to his sons family and his son and grand daughter required extensive surgery and had no insurance and needed money to pay for the surgery. Each of them would get upset if you asked questions and claim you dont trust them or would provide little information that couldn’t be verified. John walker of the UK is still on okcupid, Jerry Morey account is disabled, and Chris Charles account is deleted. Also note that each of them would ask you to delete you okcupid account as a sign that you are only interested in them and focus on building a relationship with them.

      • Maybe we should all be comparing our photos of the “military” guys. I’ll bet they are all using the same pictures. One picture I have is of a guy on a motorcycle in sunglasses.

    • Same thing happened to me. Met a “soldier” on OK Cupid who said he was deployed to Middle East. He requested I buy and send him a Mac Book so he could better communicate with me. When I asked him for an address to send it to he gave me some BS address at diplomats.com instead of a military APO address. Also started emailing me with his name at rescue.com as the domain in his email address. Red flag went up when the was no official domain like .mil , .gov, or .state. Started to do some fishing myself being an Army vet. Asked him what his MOS was and unit. The dominoes started falling from there. Guess I have a new Mac Book!

    • Same story here. Guy said he was in the Army deployed to Middle East and wanted me to send him a MAC book so he could communicate better with me. He couldn’t give me an APO address so I started fishing myself asking him questions any Army recruit would know. (I’m retired Army). When he came back with BS answers I told him to take a hike.

  16. This is a scammer who also uses the profile below with
    identical info. Carlie1230 contacted me & kept texting, but
    would not talk on the phone. He bothered me with short texts
    all weekend that gave no information. So I told him I was
    aware of the Afghanistan scam and to take down his profile. I also
    told him that none of the pictures he posted in his profile are of
    the same person.
    He immediately stopped texting me, but he has not removed the profile.

    According to the military websites, these guys like to approach women over 40 who they perceive to be lonely and desperate. The guys also say they are widowed. They say they are in Afghanistan and will be retiring/coming home in a month. Eventually, they start asking for money. But this guy was so bad at it that I became bored with his boring texts “Hello, how are you?” “Fine.” “Good!” “What are you doing today, etc.” These guys are mostly in Nigeria at an internet cafe, and they won’t talk on the phone. Many have have poor grammar or spelling, but this one didn’t, so the red flags didn’t go up right away. They just copy pictures of handsome soldiers they find on FB or elsewhere. I Googled one picture, which came up with the other profile. The real poor soldiers have no idea their images are being used; some of them are deceased. I’t's a very dangerous scam for women and a shameful exploitation of our servicemen. Check out Youtube.com for info. about online dating scams; they have a lot of useful information that could save your money or your life.

    • They are indeed, in abundance on okcupid.com. I’ve had 2 in the past 8 days. The first had me going until he professed his “love” after 12 hrs of on/off texting. So, 11 days later he only wants $550 from his “dear”. Personally, I’m concerned about pointing out what they do obviously so wrong because they’ll just take notes for the next ” desperate” lady. So, I guess “dating” has gone from aggravating to “just not worth it”. Mainly because I fear what they can do with our pictures and God forbid, if we fell, our phone numbers. These creeps are truly bottom feeders. Better Luck to all of us Patriotic, love starved, lovely ladies!!!

  17. I’ve run into three scammers and two crazies. First, beware the man who wants your profile removed. He won’t be removing his. Also, when texting they use an App called Mo+ that spoofs any number! that can also voice call through google. You will note short ads here and there in their texts. Check the area code against the city they claim to be from. Demand to get hard information. Most want you to money gram, western union money for them. They’ll tell you anything and everything. But get them on the phone and guess what? It’s usually a strange sort of Jamaican or South American English. The grammar won’t match their profile. But oooooh they love you! They’ll text morning and night to say I love you but the money requests are persistent. If a man wants you, you don’t send him money. HELLO. no amount of sweet talk will get me to send one cent.

  18. There are two scammers on cupid, Josie Walters, claim to be a marine engineer, claim he got stuck in the UK, needed money to get home. The other one is on the male scammer list, didn’t know until he asked for money, to get him and his sick daughter back home and his name is Pablo Fabio claim to be a civil engineer. Fabio has taken his name off of the dating site, but Josie Walters is still on scamming somebody. I have reported this to cupid before, but I did not receive a response. I am a woman that is really on the dating site to find a mate, but running into these kind of men I am getting off. Reading about all this scamming is upsetting.

  19. I met a couple of scammers on okcupid and maybe one more but I think he got scared off. Falling in love quickly phone call from overseas. On business, one was in the Marines. Very romantic worked for about three weeks before Asking for money. Got mad when I called him on it. Said we need trust in our relationship. But called and text trying to make up. But then asked for money again. So haven’t heard anymore. BEWARE OF DAVID MORRISON GOLDBERG, JOHN SLATERS AND POSSIBLE ROBERT JAY.

  20. I met a scammer, widowed, 17 yr old daughter, engineer, very good looking, wealthy, born in Uzbekistan and raised in Scotland. Became very irate with me when I would not give him my email address the first night we started talking online and later after texting. Started to get very attached and emotional quickly, writing very long letters about his hard life and how blessed he is and how religious he is, quoting Bible scriptures. He kept saying he wanted to make me his “official lady” and when questioned why such a good catch was on a free dating site (he claimed to earn over $250k per yr) he said his daughter wrote his profile on okcupid but profile was gone the next day, and he told me 3 days later in a long love letter that he removed his profile because he found the “one”. He uses photos that I have seen on other sites, so I started to dig. I found out there are 3 other sites with his name listed, same exact story, history, living in NC, widowed, from Uzbekistan, Scotland, daughter, engineer on oil off shore equipment, even used the same idioms and some descriptions were word for word but different pictures of different men. I blocked him and told him I would call the police if he harrassed me. Anthony Ritch he’s a scammer and I haven’t seen his pictures on scambusters or others yet.

  21. Be aware — if a hot chick tells you shes from the UK, at a modeling convention, and needs you to wire her money for a ticket… its a scam. She will write you a big long thing making lots of promises. It’s some lowlife loser in some third world country trying to get your money.
