I am going to list the names (scammers not correct identity) of the ones that I personally have been in contact with. I have seen his picture on this site under the name of Noland Jonas. I cannot block it because I am not the owner of the phone. I am too embarrassed to let my boss know but I think he will help me block this guy. I will not deny that he made me feel in love again. I see people smiling and laughing and I wonder what it feels like. I was quite surprised when I arrived at my work this morning and my scammers supposedly daughter had emailed me -(Hi mom it’s Belinda.
Some I keep longer just for entertainment value, some because the words sounded good, even though I knew it was BS. They all ended when after weeks and weeks I could not send money or I tunes cards. He proceeded to say that they had a meeting about the rules on that rig, and that the company would pay 75 percent of any repairs to the oil rig. Well to make a long story short he asked for money and I said no and to this day Nov 1st he is still trying playing on my feelings. This man on 11 - 04 17 sounds so much like my scammer it really gets me amost the same M O. He was on Twitter and very friendly real fast and wanted to marry me and wanted the church life. We have all got to pray to get his person so let us agree to clean the scammer and remember to pray he will make a mistake one day then perhaps go to jail then he will think about what he did to us all. I have hurt my families survival so bad that I don't know from one day to another what is going to happen. Go to a counselor for help if you have insurance and can afford the co-payments. Like most of us, I'm sure you don't want your kids and friends to know. Thank God, I made a very Dear Lady Friend in all this and she has been such a good friend to me through this. Mom I haven’t heard from daddy, he told me he was in pains about his machine the last time I heard from him.
You can't fight what has happened to you and us other woman if you take your life. I don't have the answers, but, I pray every day for God to keep other woman out of this persons hands so they do not suffer the way that I do. (You can't block that aspect.) I teased him and said he quit working on me way too soon. He will never show up, he will want money and Itune cards. I met mine on a dating site but they troll Facebook and Instagram. I will check back later at night before i go to my hostel today mom. I wish you can send me some of your beautiful pictures mommy so that i can show my friends how beautiful you are. Love You Ryan." My mother started an online chat with someone VERY SIMILAR to this thread. It is hard to explain what you go through when you are in the scam. He sounds just like my scammer, wife died in car crash and 15 yr old daughter who lives in the UK with his mother and can't wait to be you, same line of BS he told me.
I've lost my pride, hope, future, and lord I sure don't know what it is to smile. But, God is still keeping me alive for a reason and he wants to survive and make a difference too. Then about 2 weeks later he's texting me on my phone messenger. lol Next, he posed as Mark Romano on Hangouts and said he wanted to talk. I hope you all survive your horrible ordeal by moving on. Said he was a petroleum engineer, talked on hangout, strong accent. I really appreciate your love and support to me mommy,i am sure dad loves you and want us to live as family that he has said to me several times. He patiently waited to get all of me, it took 13 long months to manipulate me, daily contact with him, voice, text, emails, his kids and instantly crying that he needs help having no one to help. I had a little left to survive and then he came back for more saying that he left me with some money. It is hard to deal with this humiliation and loss for loving an internet man and stolen pictures. Rotten world these days and women that are weak pay the price.
Still getting emails asking how I am coming along with gettong money. In my case I was first contacted on Words with Friends. After I blocked him I was inundated with Words Game Requests and they were ALL scammers. I changed my user name on Words so now I can play in peace. I was in a huge scam before, and I wrote my story here twice already so I know the pattern and I could not or would not give him this kind of money. He had a FB page too but I can’t find it anymore and I have had his pictures. Help I know you have it within you to pull yourself up and get out of the dark place, trust me I too have been there. In my opinion, and perhaps it's not worth much but, cutting off ties with family and friends is not the best idea. I escaped this fate, but understand how this happens. You are amongst some of the finest women to Grace this nation. The only thing that I find strange is that his number is from a different state and he's living in Illinois. Also, the style of writing was very old fashioned e.g. He tried to tap into my sympathy by saying he was ill on the rig. He is working everyday not weekends and will pay his hotel when he gets contract money and finish the contract job. If anybody has come across him please let me know Ok ladies, Just tell me what jurisdiction you're in and I will send my information to that jurisdiction and you will label it "Oil Rig dating scammer". I, like you will never judge another person, as this experience has taught me so much, in a good way.
Next thing you know he is actually calling her on Messenger and they are connected. So it now seems that when someone sends you a friend request you are automatically connected to Messenger. I reported it because she was getting ready to board a plane. I actually spoke with a live person and received an email from them as they were indicating that would investigate. And the second one he's in a sports car and they're standing up and looks like a father and a son and the father looks a little chunky. I asked him do you have to take any men over when you go to your jobs. I asked do you have to put up your own money for your job? I refused to give him that money so he played a little with me and then told me that I am not the woman he is looking for and that I am a cruel woman. He has emailed me several times this morning asking why I was ignoring him. The more I read the more I knew I too was trying to be scammed. Use of the English language was poor all of the time. He cannot get his contract money until he finishes the contract which he needs the money to finish it. Such as you are smarter than this, how did you let it happen, they don't understand and will never understand.
I have two ladies who reached out from Nov 6th post, so I will email with updates late this evening. Today is a good day, and I will be getting on with this today. I contacted Facebook yesterday to report someone that was trying to reach one of my friends. I talked to the son who lives in New York, and after a few texts he asks me if he can call me Mom. Told me our relationship meant nothing to me and I had ruined our dreams. Works on an oil rig, is widowed with 1 adult daughter. I told him I would like to have $200 in i Tunes gift cards too..maybe we could find someone to buy them for both of us. Bank statement, Account information and addresses, which I sure they don't live there.
I will be calling three offices today and see if i can get any assustance as to where to proceed from here. Be on touch soon Marie I am more than happy to sign this Petition. Last night he drops the bomb that he is in love with me and asks if I am on Hangouts so his son can contact me. But he would have taken it and felt no conscience at all. Anyone heard of a Bruce Allen or Alan Walker from Florida? I was wondering why he hadn’t pulled that one on me yet. Everyone on this site have been tremendously hurt in one way or another. So what I mean by documentation, I have three years of information.
Now after him throwing me away after he got all my money seven months later he is contacting me again, but I found out today it’s not him so he has to have Sold My File because this person knows things about me that only him and someone working with him would know. I would like to thank this website for it’s commitment to keeping the forum updated and so very helpful to many. I will be the spokesperson for all of us, if needed. Yes living unhappy and miserable lives but it will not help to give up letting the scammers to win. He has still to ask me for money but I think something is fishy about him. I went with it and asked him when we were getting married. I was, therefore, not worthy to be his wife or grandmother to his 2 grandsons. Ladies, he told me that after he'd already scammed me out of over 6,000. I am sure we all had our entire fantasy life worked out with the perfect man. Yes, it will get better, the sooner you realize that it was all a lie, never any love, all about money. Yes, its ok to feel sad and cry, hell they can't take that away from us, however, you must rise above the pain and realize that life goes on. Yes, they will continue to do this if we don't fight back. Praying for you and every one of us - and we know we are not alone. I am not the lady that was contacted after 17 months but my scammer gave me a Texas phone number and it is still being used by him as he texted me this morning. People outside of this website are so cruel and cold and call us stupid and all kinds of names for having fallen for them and give them our hard earned money, but, if I have learned anything in life it isn't to judge people, because you never know what you will do until you are in a situation yourself.
Facebook is ruining a lot of unknowing people’s lives. I could write on this forum all the ones i have had the pleasure (NOT) of being in touch with me. Maybe just maybe we can really start the healing process that lasts longer than a day. I lived my life as a strong, intelligent responsible person. (I am great at hiding all the pain) so they see just the happy side. I am old too and the chance of recovery from it is impossible. I'll post my petition again, all I want is for dating sites and FB to acknowledge this as a crime and post a warning. They say you can't love someone you have never met. The pictures of them, their children, them supposedly with their workers, talking everyday several times a day, texting, emailing, you think you know this person and he has given you hope of being your Godly man to love you and be with you to the end of your days, Pray for your children ETC., ETC. The thing I want to tell you is you just have to keep trying to wake up everyday and get through the day one day at a time and pray for God's help and hopefully one day if we live long enough this will be just a bad learning experience that hopefully helps save someone else from their fate with a scammer.
She declined this last guy by telling him she thought he was one of those oil rig drilling scammers. Then I did not hear from him and when I texted him he was on his way to Malaysia delivering crude oil on a submarine. Then he was in trouble with his expired business license and asked for 16K to pay for it being in Jakarta port. I had told him I did not love him and yes I was walking away. You told me to stop talking to you if I really meant what I said. No one is to blame but the perpetrator of these scams. I read through with disbelief that someone actually was trying to scam me. After reasearch I have found he has several more aliases. I was aware something was not quite inright about him. He says he is an independent contractor on a rig off the coast of Santa Barbara CA. Stuck in a Hilton Hotel for weeks but still working on site. My close family, such as my siblings are the only ones that know. I have heard so many comments from my family alone.
