  1. I believe a man called Kenny James is scamming me
    he talk very sweet, says nice things to me
    after about 3 weeks he asked me to send him
    a MacBook Air so we could talk private
    he says he is in Afghanistan on military
    mission, I have talked to a friend of mine that
    was in army, she says he doesn’t talk like a
    military man and there is nothing in Afghanistan
    that is secret, he keeps telling me he can’t
    say anything about his mission. I will reply
    again with any further info if I hear from him
    again, I have tried to set him up with some info
    from my army friend

    Gerald J Willings is a SCUM bag. He has stolen all his pictures from Loren Schofield–who is a small time acting and has several films, Just look up this Loren Schofield and you will find the pictures he claims is him. He has broke me so that I am almost in the poor house. Claims he is Russian, has a son, divorced, lived in Columbus Ohio on Blendon Ave.and is a dirt bag.

  6. Gerald J. Willings ruined my life and is still hurting other women. He is about 67 plus years old, says he has a son called Daniel, says he is divorced but he is a Russian but says he has a home (in white pages confirmed) in Columbus, Ohio on Blendon Sreet,Road and he is Russian. He has been at this several years now and he has bankrupted me. I will soon be living in the streets because I thought he loved me. HE IS a liar and is under invesitagation by my bank and by Western Union. BEWARE -he sends out Model type pictures and is good at his samming.this is a picture of him in a suit if this site posts it, it is NOT of ME but of Gerald J Willings. Born in Moscow.

    My mom has been chatting for a week on facebook with a guy by the name of Michael Richards whose wife died and has teenage daughter.He already wants to meet her….She is believing it all (my dad passed away a little more than a year ago from cancer and she is now living in a new town close to me with no friends yet)
    He has emailed her song, wants to meet me and my sister and our family.Wants mom to talk to his daughter who is in school in Africa!!!!
    Has anyone heard of this guy?
    She also has another one – Derek not sure of last name but his wife and daughter both die in car accident.Each man is from outside of the states but currently living in Texas (Michael) and Colorado (Derek)
    I’m convinced they are both scams – she’s a lonely woman missing my dad and wont listen – well she says she listens but continues to talk to them….
    I need something to prove this to her.Need some help… Please!!!

    • If they have been sending her love letters and telling her; that they love her within weeks of chatting or days of it….more than likely they are trying to scam…tell your mom, do not send any money or favors to them, especially if she has never seen him or them…they will use the trust issues……to embark on her emotions to make her feel she lack trust in them; after all the love letters and the sweet nothings he has told her, is how they will do it…if she has never met them, she need to get proof that they are who they say they are…..by……a photo of the person with a sign in his hand that has her name and today’s date on it….Skype so she can see his face, Webcam or Face time from the G 5′s smart phone like I-phone; this way she can talk and see his face….if they refuse to do that or have excuses why they can’t, he is a scammer…….they can not show their face because it will be different than the photos or what they have told her…she also need to be able to know voice recognition such as Nigerian verses white, black, Hispanic and Asian..you get my picture…so to listen to their voice is important also….if she still don’t listen to you, tell her to get as much information from them that is personal. So if they do rip her off, she can report it to the FBI internet…..she should never send money to a stranger she never met, and it is rude for a man to even ask….karon

    I recently had correspondence from a person called Paul Rex and it took less than a week before the subject of the need for money for his “sick daughter” came up. When I said I had no funds available and he kept insisting he needed me to help save his daughter I got upset and all of a sudden he wanted to “make love”, how this is supposed to happen via computer is beyond me, which is beside the point but before this he was nothing but concern for his “daughter” so I asked him if it was his custom to make love as his child lies in the hospital deathly ill, more or less calling him on his blunder, lo and behold, I am no longer a “friend”… It has been a rather unique emotional quandary for me… I was wondering if anyone else may have heard from this person?

  12. Have met a scammer Benjamin Nick. Says he’s on a peacekeeping mission in Tripoli. Says he is a captain,in the Army.Told me he loved me the second time we talked than started questioning me about how much I make being a staff nurse.He became angry when I told him I felt uncomfortable talking about money.He was persistent about the money topic,asked me to send a photo of my home and pictures of me and my childrenI asked to see him on camera and he kept avoiding me.I asked him what time it was there and it was the wrong time for there,I looked it up.My son is getting married next month I told him,he said if I could send the money for airline ticket we could surprise my children with them meeting their step dad.I said I would buy ticket he became angry again…you don’t trust me he is right!! I especially hate scammers who use our military to get what they want,I have met so many scammers and I was once scammed big time,why I investigate each person.

  16. I was recently contacted by a Michael Anderson. He said all the right things and told me he loves me. Always made excuses to not meet when we supposedly lived only an hour or so away. No phone contact either. Only fb messenger and i did get his number on fb that was an area code where i live. Strange. He asked me for money a few times but i never sent him any always said he was broke but yet an engineer. Has a young child and says her mother died. Then he had to go away to Nigeria last week and he had to take his daughter with him. He said he got stopped and they confiscated all his money and his contract for his business there. He ten messaged me and wanted money. I never sent anything thank god cuz nothing really added up to be real. I have already been scammed a few months ago so i knew something was up. In that scam i really did send money and i have learned my lesson. Please do not speak to Michael Anderson or an Ethan Josh. They are both very attractive men but are both scam artists. Very sad!

  18. A “Army” man named “Wilson Fred”
    Go’s by “Fred”.
    He messaged me on Facebook, telling me how much he was in love with me, and that he would do anything for me. That I was love at first sight, ever sense his wife died..
    He has kids.
    He’s currently stationed somewhere in the middle of no- where
    Three months into loving me, wanting to marry me, etc., ask for a total of $9000. He said that he is presently stationed in Nigeria. Says they are having him pay this for early retirement.
    This guy is 100% a scam artist.
    Stay away from “Wilson Fred”
    He’s fake and a good LIER, will make you believe anything that he tells you.
    Remember his words are fake and empty.
    He will try to do everything in his power to keep you attached to fall into the hole of scams and heartbreaks.
    I advise you to steer clear from him.

  23. I have listen to so many people and friends and read so much about romance dating scams and wrongly accused mr Gerald J Schiller as face book dating scam. He is from the first day that he entered Nigeria in trouble and it just worsens. It just matches all the other scam stories in Nigeria, every descripsion of a scam story, even when he was on his way to the airport, some accident happened. I just want to clear his name. I do not know where he might be at this stage, perhaps in prison. Please re-instate his accounts and please Gerald forgive me for doing you so wrong. I have written a letter to face book head office but I doubt if they have received it yet.
