For two years i had been chatting with Mark Thompson. But at first it was Chris Park. He changed it 4-5 times because someone was reporting him all the time or bothering him at first. Anyway. After about 4-5 months he started asking for help. He hD told me he wwas a widower his wife died of cancer and left him with a daughter who was 8 i believe at the time. Her name wss amanda. She was stating with his deceased wifes family til he got out of the army in which he stated he was in nigeria because of the terrorists. When he asked for money it was 100$ or less i would send it to nigeria always in someone elses name he claimed an agent had to pick it up for him as he wasnt allowed to have cash. Anyway then he got sick and said he needed his meds so i sent money then. Then he wss coming home 400 $ then 2000 dollars and 300$ but he changed everything when i was banned from western union and money gram. I started getting itunes cards.he said he was coming for me so we could get married.that was eRly february2019.have not heard from him since.

  • Monetary Loss: $2800
He messaged me on Instagram. Said he lost his wife to cancer 5 years ago and had a 9 year old son who was with his nanny. Professed love right away and talked about marriage. Claimed to be a mapping and drilling engineer doing an independent contract in the Gulf of Mexico. Said there was faulty equipment and it injured a worker. He said he couldn’t complete the contract until he had help fixing the machines and that he was responsible for the entire job and that he and 30 other workers were without food. He guilted me into sending a bank wire for 500 to feed the men. Then later asked me to send money thru MoneyGram or certified mail money orders for 2000 which he’d pay back when the job was completed. Then asked for 300 in ITunes cards for his mapping app. Even after I found out he was a scammer, he insisted he wasn’t and that he fell in love with me and would pay me back. I won’t hold my breath. Said he lived in San Antonio, Tx

  • Monetary Loss: $20,500.00
Fred Mark age 57 and his daughter Rose Mark age 15 scammed me out of $20,500. Fred had me wire $6000 to Germany and $3000 to Champion Palmer in Nicaragua. The wires to Germany were to Martina Niggemann and Timo Niggeman and Charlene Lewis. I also gave him almost $15,000 in Itunes cards. He is a smooth talker and had me convinced he'd pay me back. He has a home in Washington DC , a place in Milford, Delaware and said he worked on an oil rig in Gulf of Mexico. He said he had a Columbian bank account with over $700,000 in it and boasted to be rich but just couldnt access his money at the time. Of course he swore to God to pay me back but he didnt. They are both wicked ways.

  • Monetary Loss: $12,500.00
Michael talked to me for over a year. Said he loved me and he has much funds for when he comes home and he will pay back this loan. He was in the Army and went to get his things from Accura G. That got stuck in customs there. Then there was quite a price to pay for them to be shipped back. After a bit he then had no funds to come back to the states. So to help out I got a loan because he said he would pay it back.
