  3. Has anyone been contacted by a man named Alic Fisher?
    He claims he’s on a project in Africa but will be coming to Canada soon.
    He is talking to my mother but has not yet asked her for money.
    My mom says they send detailed romantic emails , texts and he has called her a few times but can never talk for long. My mom is older and is crazy about this man who’s a few years younger than her. He is promosing Her the world and I just think he’s a fraud.
    She met him on Zoosk .. claims he’s a widow and has no kids.

  6. ‘Kungfuguy’ with his fake name Chad Edward born in 17th June 1968, mrukfinest@hotmail.com, 07708677518 is a scammer. He put his real photos on the website but his ID and stories are all lies: He put himself as a barrister(QC) and going to be a senior judge by the end of this year. He was a half Jamaican and a half Italian (didn’t look Italian at all though). He was born and spent childhood in Jesolo in Italy but moved to Brixton at the age of 11. He went to Cambridge Uni at the age of 17 and had PhD in Law. Before he became a barrister he was in the military doing secret operations in dirrent countries such as South Africa, Afganistan, Hong Kong, Japan, etc. He told me he divorced in 2012 after being cheated by his ex wife and has 2 daughters called Jessica(19) and Louise(15).
    He made me buy everything and including an expensive mobile phone. He forced me to give him some cash as a probation period and told me if I pass the probation, he would give me the money back but if not he would give the money to the charity – of course nothing came back.
    He took some cash from me for the trip to Italy and for exchange to EUR – no such trip had been organised.
    He took my laptop from my home without me noticing – domestic theft
    He became very ill so I phoned NHS but his details were not recognised.
    I asked him why NHS did not recognise, his lie was because he was politically protected and his information was accesible to the certain levels of the doctors only. He didn’t let me call an ambulance.
    He sent himself to St George’s hospital on 6th August and sent me the photo of himself lying on the bed.
    I suspected his fake ID at the early stage but was not brave enough to face him or investigate properly.
    He changed his mobile number and disappeared after I said I know what you are doing.
    One truth is he is diabetic. He has to inject insulin every morning 14units and evening 12units.

    • His real name is Colin Edwards, husband of 21 years to Veronica Edwards. He lives in East Croydon and has 2 daughters, the names he gave you are their middle names. He works for either Lloyds or TSB bank as a personal manager. He was declared bankrupt in 2011. He has at least 5 women on the go at any one time, including his unsuspecting wife. I was in a relationship with him for nearly 3 years and his lies were endless…each of his siblings died at least twice. He raised his hands on my children, hence the relationship breakdown. The only truth is that he is indeed diabetic. Stay away from this man at all costs…he will take you for every penny you possess and then leave you high and dry, your purpose served.

        (Quote)

      • No wonder why he knew the history how Lloyds was founded very well. I am familiar with the other stories you mentioned. How are you sure his real name? Has he committed any crimes to you?

          (Quote)

        • I’m aware of his real name because I employed a private investigator. His wife has since divorced him. I’m unsure whether they still live in the same house. He didn’t steal from me but he was physically and mentally abusive towards me and my 3 children…we were terrified of him. He came to visit me a year ago, expected me to take him back but he makes my skin crawl.

  12. Please beware of fraud at Zoosk. An eastern national is impersonating an US ARMY Brigade general. I researched and found the real general on facebook, same face, photo..a happily married officer. I emailed the fraudulent imposter and warned him that in USA impersonating a military officer is a crime with jail sentence. I am filing a claim with my credit card company to get my money back from Zoosk.

    • Diane, I sure wish we could find him, after I went on google after him, when I found out about it, and I posted the silly messages to him, I knew I would get a response,. he came back online to me telling me someone stole his idenity, and he had not taken any money from me or anyone else,and everyone was lying on him, then he tells me how much he loves me , right? he thinks I am stupid, I was a fool for a year,he said we would be married before christmas, and sent me the most beautiful poems, he sure is a smooth operator, after I posted on here he must have seen it he has sent me a coupla of messages but I can not pin him down, if I ever do he will go to jail where he belongs. beware of him trying to reach you using another name, I think he is trying that on me now, when I find out for sure will let you know , hang in there lady , keep the faith and help me get him.

  17. I met Jaron Eddie on zoosk, He says he is a General surgeon with the peacekeeping forces in Iraq, he told me the same story he told the other lady I read about, I lost 300.00 dollars but he had me wire it Nigeria to a man who would bring his parcel out supposed to be money recovered in Iraq. I have my reciepts and proof I sent it plus emails and everything I need, he never gave me a phone number or address to reach him, for security reasons he said. he posted a site on google is how I caught up with him, lost a year of my life being taken in, he is good at what he does, I made so many problems for him on google he took the site down . he had 9 women in his circle, one lady, had a friend who said he took her for thousands of dollars, at the same time he was promising me i was his one and only..ladies beware of him , he is a smooth operator.

      (Quote)

    • This sounds a lot like my story but the guy was Daniel Johnson jndan54321@gmail.com

      Claimed to be a Cardiovascular surgeon in the peacekeeping areas with the UN. Was called to a summit in the UK and then immediately shipped to Chad without being able to come home and say good bye to his kids or get any money. He carries no credit cards or cash with him when he travels since it is so dangerous. He fell in “love” with me immediately and can’t wait to see me. His phone dropped in a puddle while trying to take pictures to show me he was really where he said he is and now his phone won’t work. Wants me to send him a new Iphone 6 plus and other “stuffs”. He uses the phone number 2034080514. This Please do not send him anything if he contacts you. I have contacted Zoosk to tell them about him and hopefully have him removed.

  18. The user PATTY is not true, she is the scammer here, she was rejected by a man and the only way to get back to him was to go on internet campaign. Here is one of Her communications with Mr. Backer:
    Dear Dearest Henry,

    I have been reaching out to you through Carlos and through E-mails over the last several weeks. Ever since Carlos told me that you had a sick, my heart has been so distraught with pain not knowing how you are doing.

    Today I called to find out how you were doing and Carlos told me that you were doing better but he told me that he has not told you that I have been calling about you. He feels that with all of the stress that you have been under that caused your sick and since I am relatively new in your life that I need to stop calling. He thinks that at this point you do not need to have an additional emotion’s.

    I don’t feel that way – I think that if you knew I was trying to reach you that you would know how much I loved and missed you even putting a smile on your face.

    I can not explain to you how much my heart is crushed by his request. I can not stop crying since he suggested that to me. I am not sure that I can just cease any contact with you. I know that we have met once, but we have talked, shared, e-mailed each other that I really did develop a strong feeling of LOVE for you and thought that maybe we might be together.

    He recommended that I wait until you get better and let you decide if you want to reach out to me. I am not sure how that would work if you think that during a difficult time for you that I just walked out on you. I DO NOT WANT TO WALK AWAY FROM YOU – EVER.

    I don’t even know that you will ever get these e-mails if they are trying to avoid me contacting you in any way. I hope they do, so that you will know how much I love you, miss you and wish you well. I beg of you to contact me when you are up to it, please, my heart is breaking! In the meantime, I will still pray for your recovery and your return to me.

    Henry, I love you with all of my heart – come back to me please!

    With all of my Love ,
    Patty

    Has anyone had dealings with a Michael Chapman who claims to be a retired Navy Pilot, widowed, 22 year old daughter studying in Austraila? He has given me a phone number and we talk but his accent is the most bizarre. He says its a Liverpool accent but it changes. Says he lives in Dahlonega GA and he is expecting to lose millions of his father’s inheritance from shares in a company in Greece? He hasn’t asked me for money yet, but I am thinking that’s coming next.

  25. My freind got scammed by a man on Zoosk.
    The picture he sent her was a good looking white male in his 40s.
    He said he was a CEO of an oil and gas company based in NewYork but that he lived in Long Beach. He was working in South Africa on a project. He told sent her numerous lovely emails proclaiming his love for her. He did give her his phone number. They would text and email for a few months. They even spoke on the phone. One time they attempted skype but the connection did not work on his end, so he said.

    How did he scam her you may ask.

    He told her that there was an accident on the rig. That the employees who are poor local laborers were in a hurry to fix the rig before he ” the CEO ” came in and the rushed and ended up having a tragic accident where 3 men died.

    He told her that everyone was gathering fund to help the fam of the victims . She gave him 400.00 He got upset when she stopped giving him money and stopped talking to her

    • PATTY: You are such a liar. Mr. Henry rejected you and that is why you are doing this to him, he never asked you for money and you never sent any money to him….if what you say is true, then show us the prove that you ever sent money to him. You hacked his email account and started stalking him. He has released all your emails to us and we will be publishing it online for people to see who you truly are. YOU ARE A LIAR AND A CHEAT.

  26. I have been scammed by a man he sent me his email address opiumconstruction@outlook.com his name is Robbert Crush. Said we had a great connection and very lovely emails back and forth for a while. He is an only child his parents are Irish and Highland. He is a widower no children. Sent me a lot of pictures of himself. He lives in South Dakota but he is on a 7 month project in South Africa and will be coming back to the States soon. We got to know each other more through emails and then phone calls. Then one day he said he need 7600 US I hold him I didn’t have the money then he asked for 2500 because a friend was sending him 2k. Then I received another email that he was ready to come back to the states but needed money for a ticket home and he would pay me back. I told him again I have no money. I have not heard of him since.
