  2. Since some years, in pof.com are mostly scammers.
    But if i warned pof.com, the dont react.
    Each person can there make an acount, na d if he pays, they never would block him.
    My english is not perfect, some words i dont know,
    I have found a trick, how i can find, if he is a scammer or not.
    I can give you a name:
    Beebow2 naME IS Charles, or Fritzy; in an other mail; will only phone with whats app.
    Bayard, West Virginia , he give me a phone numver and an adress,
    but as i told him to meet me first in Germany, i have never heard from him.
    His photos are very strange! He looks very bad.
    65 year old , Details 65 year old Männlich, 178cm; Lutherisch; Hellhäutig, Zwilling Absicht : aktiv auf der suche nach einer beziehung. Bildung Bachelor Persönlichkeit Hoffnungloser Romantiker Beruf: Sawyer timberframer farmer carpenter retired
    He is unpolite and very strange, and agressive, he will shot, the Mrs. Merkel from Germany.

    Warning
    I warn each person, to give any strange person your email adress, it give cyber scammers too.
    And if you give them a mail adress, you cannt warn the datingline, about that person,
    You can be shure, something is wrong, if the first or second mail is coming, with the text, please
    give me your mail adress. They give not your email adress first, they will have first your email adress, or phone number, or chat, before you have any information from this person.

    And an other person, i look if i will find him: but the problem is, if i have wrote no, the scammers delated me, and block me, so i dont find, again the latest scammers i have found.
    Sometimes it needs a little bit time,
    before i see, that he is a scammer.
    But next time i can give you some scammers, i have copied for me.

    • He was on Match.com, claims he lost his wife. I goggled his number and found all of you. I actually reported him to match.com and all of a sudden his profile was gone. He claims he lives in Seattle, but still has the same Florida #. He just tried to call me and I blocked his number. So glad you guys posted stuff on him! Nice to be warned ahead of time.

  10. Oh dear, here’s another scammer, and this time, he is on a paid online dating site, ourtime.com. Sadly these military scammers are now infiltrating the paid dating sites. His name is Robert Fischer, his email is robertsgt177@outlook.com and he says he lives in Detroit, Michigan.

  11. Got involved with 2 scammers very briefly…I figured it out pretty quickly. Same story as everyone else. They use other people’s photos and make up profiles….all the rest of it…..
    Be very careful ladies…(& gents) don’t get sucked in and NEVER EVER send $$ or give any bank details.

    • Exact same emails, photos, songs, etc, same identical everything, biggest liar on God’s earth, I also have photos of he, his daughter Victoria and his best friend, so if anyone would be interested to stop this lying you know what from cheating women out of their money, I was fortunate, didn’t fall for his crap, once burned, shame on you, twice, shame on me. The authorities need to stop these jerks. I have at least 5 IP Addresses this jerk uses, if the authorities are interested.

      • I have a lot of information too, to turn these guys in! I have a Chase Bank Account Number even, and the person’s name and address who was supposed to receive $13,000 from me. I wish there was a way to really turn these guys in as I have more info to provide to anyone who can stop these scammers who are doing such an injustice to our service men.

  16. Mary: I was contacted n POF by Christian Roberto supposedly born in Italy, lived in the UK and working on a drilling operation close to where I live. He used Christianroberto1958@gmail.com. I am very careful. Used a gmail acct. without any id.
    He fell in love by the second email and asked me to leave POF as he did.
    Google search did not come up with his name in the UK or Venice. The is no drilling in
    Fl. where he said he was working, His emails were long wordy and nothing like a supposedly educated man with a masters degree. He never answered specific questions,- his facebook acct. was opened 2 days before he contacted me he had no friends on facebook – it too has since been removed. Within 5 days he was proposing marriage.
    I closed my gmail account. The end. I did download a picture as I am sure it too is phony.

  17. I think I’m the most recent victim of these romantic POF military scams. Started communicating with someone from POF the end of May, Greatfulheart921. He had the most attractive pix, the cutest face, a Doctor, PhD, 57 years old, I actually made the first move and never imagined I’d get a response. I was delighted when I did, his name, Michael James Scott. He gave me his cell and we started texting a bit, and then he removed his POF profile. His text messages were all stamped us.army.mil at the end and he confirmed he was in the Army. It developed into the most romantic email exchange, from scottmichael926@yahoo.com, he sent several more pictures, he wrote very romantic letters, he answered most of my questions thoroughly, he even sent e-cards from mjscott@us.army.mil, everything about this seemed completely genuine. After asking him several times, he finally revealed he was at a military base in Afghanistan, a Doctor in the Army and he’s coming home in a few weeks for good, after serving our country for over 33 years. He seemed completely real in wanting to find true love in his new civilian life and was hoping he found that with me. There was no doubt in my mind about anything and we were both falling for each other. Then something of importance needed to be discussed, a large amount of money to help get his name off a deployment list. He said to send the money to a DA in Alabama who was helping these men get their names off the list. I was supposed to send a certified check for $13,250 to Randy Puckett in Russellville, Alabama, but I learned there is no DA in Alabama with that name, not even a licensed attorney there. And the address was going to a HUD housing project in the boonies with no one by that name at that address. I came so close to losing $13k as I was truly falling in love with this man, and then my wonderful son alerted me to these scams. What was so strange is that he first gave me his bank account information and SSN for me to check the balance in his account, and then he said he needed an extra $13k to send to the DA. He never once asked me for any personal information but he gave me his, to win my trust, which was all so confusing. I found out that bank account and SSN are not tied to his name at all, it is some business account. Once I was on to the scam and questioned him, he refused to send me any real time photo to prove his face was the one in the POF profile pix, but he still tried to convince me by sending me Army documents, awards, and Army enlistment papers with the name James Scott. After that, I still wanted to believe there was something real in all this after all these weeks of being romanced by him in a huge way. But I kept researching and finding so many lies. In the end it actually got quite creepy, because he changed his story and said he was actually Randy Puckett and he was helping his best friend, Michael, to find true love when he comes home. He said he had fallen in love with me, though, but I was in love with his friend, Michael. OMG, that was so sick, couldn’t believe the game this guy played with my heart and how very close I came to being completely taken by this romantic scam. I am usually very wise to internet scams but this guy was really good, really thorough and everything lined up correctly for several weeks until money became the issue.

    • I was contacted by Benjamin Whitehead. Originally from Ontario, Canada. Said both parents died when he was young. Wife was an alcoholic and died in a car crash last July. Asked me to remove my profile from POF – fell madly in love with me by the second email. Every time I asked to meet him, he said I needed to be patient that he was working a bid (said he was a civil engineer) UNREAL. This bastard needs to be stopped. Anyone have a picture?

        (Quote)

      • I was also contacted by Benjamin Whitehead on Match. He said his wife died of leukemia 4 years ago and that he has a 16 year old daughter. Same MO of “falling in love”, removing profile, etc. Last thing was he wanted me to buy all this expensive electronic equipment that he said was stolen with his luggage when he arrived on a “big” construction job in South Africa. He calls from a cell that is identified as South Africa. Has a French accent. Sounds like some of these other guys above with different names. I just noticed he is back up with a different name – Bobby – and now he has a son. I just sent a notification to Match. He first contacted me May 8. I do have some photos that he sent, but the ones in the email don’t match the ones in the profile so they are probably all fake.

          (Quote)

      • This “Benjamin Whitehead” tried to scam me on Match.com. He said he was a widower with a teenage daughter McKenzie. Same story. Working on a contract in South Africa. Said all his electronics were stolen at the airport so wanted me to buy him a ton of stuff. I reported him to Match. then his profile changed, new pics, and he was Bobby (still is) and he has a daughter. I caught him actually using someone else’s name in one email to me so he was clearly cutting and pasting. I reported him 5 times to Match and his profile is still there – Bigblueeye61. He is shameless. He has an accent; said he was french canadian. That may be true. email: benjwh112@hotmail.com. You’ll never find a pic because it appears he gets photos from other’s profiles. This happened between May-June 2014. I checked before quitting match a few weeks ago and his profile is still there. Disgusting

          (Quote)

        • This is the same guy who found me on POF his email is benjwh112@yahoo.com. Same scenario he was widowed, wife died in car crash with boyfriend, has a daughter named McKenzie, stuck in South Africa because he doesn’t have access to his “money” in Canada. Fell in love with me on second email, told me to text on messenger or email instead of POF. This guy never gives up. Anyone have any pics.

  19. It says when you call 205 578 2183 that the google subscriber is not available so he is on google too. His phone is connected to Google. Sounds phony to me.

  20. This man Frank Merck keeps texting me but i think he is a fraud. He has an email of frankmerck@yahoo.com.uk and a phone number of 205 578 2183 and he refuses to let me visit him and he never talks ad when I call that number on numerous occasions, I only get an answering phone, and he claims to be an engineer that travels. He only write these texts in the mornings. I think he is a scammer. He claims to live in Miami but has an Atlanta phone number and he tells me in flowery language how much he loves me but refuses to see me in person.

  21. I noticed everyone getting scammed is a woman. I’m a man and I just encountered the same thing (no one is safe!). She said her name is Debra, and she is in the Dominican Republic visiting her mom and needs cash. I said its a strange thing to ask someone before meeting in person, so I asked if we could discuss this over the phone. Then she got really defensive and demanded cash or she wouldn’t talk to me. I’d been talking to her for a few weeks, so I was definitely tempted, but I just want to warn the men of the world, this sort of thing happens to us too! Watch out for a pretty blonde woman named Debra living in Pennsylvania, she’s a Nigerian prince in disguise!

He had a local number from Greensboro, NC and then had to travel to England to obtain generators for his business. Now his cell number is in the UK and asking for money to secure land in South Africa to produce the oil from the cashew nut. He’s even bold enough to post someone’s picture on Facebook and LinkedIn and even scanned a passport of Michael Ashley. He says he’s a widower of 14 years and has a daughter who lives in Washington, DC. Says he last lived in Riverside, CA. Watch out ladies THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!!

      This might be the same guy that wasted my time for 3 months, I caught on to him quick, needing money to clear his equipment in the Gulf of Mexico, sweet-talker/liar, sends the same identical emails to every woman he contacts, please don’t be taken in by him, when I notified him No Way was I sending him $300.00 he desperately needed to use to send ITunes to you unsuspecting women. promises a villa in Hawaii, Range Rover, Pink Diamond, wanting to travel in the Range Rover to beautiful states in the USA and beautiful countries, staying in 7 star hotels, etc., the list goes on & on…..I have photos of this guy which may not be him, his daughter, and best friend whose a commercial fisherman….I attempted to download photos, I don’t know if they went through, maybe it will help.

  26. Just wondering if either of you ladies have any pics of this Michael Burke. I was contacted by a Michael Burke through Matchmaker and he also said he deleted his profile. He did not give the same reason, but that he was new to online dating and didn’t like what he saw. Which of course didn’t make sense if he was contacting me. However, his story is similar in some areas he changed it up (if this is the same guy). I immediately knew what he was doing when I started reading his email. Long story about how wonderful he was, romantic, blah blah. But said he’d never been married, no children, but parents had been killed, and he was raised by his Uncle who died when he was 25. I had been contacted several years ago by another guy in another place and its so crazy how they used the same sob story of parents being killed, etc. Disgusting. I never get into relationships of any kind with these guys. No sense in getting involved with someone who isn’t even in my state, much less country. I’ll find one here or go solo. Scum bags. I have the email he sent and several pics. Just wondered if it might be the same guy.

  27. Michael Burke, mburke059@hotmail.com, initiated contact with me on POF, but immediately said he removed his profile to “focus on me” and asked me to communicate through his hotmail. Said he was construction engineer, finishing job on monorail, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After declaring sincerity, hope for the future in Hamilton, Ont., and love, said his plane ticket was more than originally budgeted for and he needed me to send western union money transfer. Next, he requested more money, all the while planning our future, in order to pay tax duty to get his final pay released (this time to a Maxwell Johnson, Malaysia). Yes, I actually sent more. But then I googled some of his “love” letter emails, and he had copied and pasted other sources. He requested a third money order- I don’t even remember for what hardship now – and after days of unrelenting refusals from me, he became very irrate and cut off communication. I’m so embarrassed to have fallen for this scam. I should have read about dating scammers before falling victim myself. Hope this helps someone else. P.S. Says he was raised by grandma, living in Texas, after his parents died in car accident when he was 5. Says he has daughter in university (in Greece, or Turkey). Says english is his first language but he has an accent (not Indian, not french, not irish, not british; couldn’t place it)

    Had man try almost identical scam on me through OKCupid. Ran out of money on contractual job in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was originally from Utah and at same time another man form Pittsburgh was working on a contract in London England and before his second phase money could come in he ran out of money and was in danger of loosing everything. I think they were the same person using different names, etc. The contract job in foreign countries and running out of money seems to be the way to go. IT’S A SCAM. DON’T FALL FOR IT.

    • Patt this sounds so familiar, The guy Dennis Walter was just in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Singapore) contractual job, needed money for government tax, $1,500 he ask for. He said he can’t receive any money through Western Union because he is a foreigner in that country so he say. His supervisor, Neo Beng Lay receives the money.

      • I met Dennis Walter on blackpeoplemeet. He said he was adopted by Belgium man and a California woman and that his biological parents are from Nigeria, he told me this because I questioned his Nigeria accent. He told me he is an engineer and has a contract in Dubai and Singapore. Unfortunately for him, I was able to find out thay he is a scammer because he sound too good to be true.

        • You talked to him on the phone? I rarely talked to him, he would always text. I wasn’t the only one he was talking to. He had sent the wrong email to the person. So he going to block you too on BPM. I had reported him to the web master on that site.
