made contact with the gentleman at the OurTime dating site, After awhile we exchanged phone numbers. For a couple of weeks he wooed me via text messages. I asked him for his real name and he told me it was John Ken Koger. At first he claimed he was in Atlanta GA . He first told me he had bed bugs and then that the cylinders in his vehicle were blown and that it was going to cost 4,000.00 and he would not ne able to pay his rent. A day or two later he told that had told a fib because he was so embarrassed by his predicament and the he told me a fib and proceeds to tell me that he is Africa which is typical for these people the red flag went up immediately. He proceeds to ttell me that he had made some unfortunate choices and now he was broke and wanting to come home but needed money. At that point I thought I would string him along. I told some fibs of my own and I was flat out broke because I had been scammed by another person and as a result of that I did not control my own finances and was given a weekly allowance. It went on for a couple of days when he proceeded to ask me all kinds questions about my bank accounts, credit cards etc. Today I was on Facebook when lo and behold what do I find but a picture of a man who looks exactly like him. they could be twins if it not the same guy. The event was his supposed birthday December 14. He had asked me to vote for his son as athlete of the week on Facebook and is the reason I went there today to check if there was indeed something about the sports event I would like to be able to give supporting documents but will have to go through my email from him and see if I can download the text messages from my cell phone.

Claims to be a sugar daddy and will give you an allowance every week he claims to work to be working on a rig in new mexico but stays in New York then he will ask for your bank account number to deposit money in once you give it he will tell you you've been approved for allowance then he will tell he will deposit same day then he will tell you he needs you to do a favor for him by depositing money in someone elses account because he cant get to them to pay them then he will try and pull money out your account since he has access or he will ask for username and password if you have a mobile app so he can monitor the transactions he will be doing ๐Ÿ—ฃDont be fooled he just couldnt get me sound like scam all day then asked for a email address so i guess he could get in and change your info and be locked out your account . Be careful not to fall for this scam he kept saying and claiming he wasn't a scammer and I wasnt loyal to trust him with my account..before I knew it I was blocked on Instagram and couldnt find him๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well for some reason I lost much of the texts. But Sharon Vence was wanting to blackmail about an "online" relationship that I was trying to get out of even blocked her. But that's when the blackmail threat came about for $200, but earlier in the year sent $25 Steam card and sent another $25 Steam card later. But I do have all the receipts from Walmart of the $200 I had sent to her in the name of her so-called uncle Rodger Brown... I have recently trying to break off again then I receive an anonymous well death threat. That I will be killed in 48 hours unless I send them $3000.

However, I will attach the death threat texts and also I will send the receipts from Walmart for the money send to Sharon Vence in the name of Rodger Brown. (well I was going to send all the other 5 receipts but if you need them to provide an email and I will send the other 3 to you.

Reportedly though Sharon Vence's address is 3100 I-30
Little Rock, AR 72206, well supposedly.
