Iceland engineer dating scam

  • by: Nicetry
  • #44665
  • Jan 11, 2018
  • Monetary Loss: $0
A man by the name of Scott Morris contacted me via Facebook. He said he was a marine engineer working in Iceland on a boat. Wife and son died in car wreck seven years ago. Has one daughter who is 17 and lives at a boarding school while he is in Iceland. Her name is Alondra. I asked him to send me photo of himself and the boat he’s on and he said he couldn’t because he has no phone because his phone “fell into the water” so he couldn’t call me with his phone (or take photos). He had to call me from his computer. He always said he had a bad connection. He said he had trouble hearing me. He asked me to buy him a $100 Itune card and read me the numbers off of it. He said he needed the card so he could buy a better internet connection so he could hear me better. Also, so he could purchase a song for me and send it to me. He really laid on the romance and poetry really thick. Told me he loved me after only talking to him once. I told him I was aware of what he was doing and he denied it, if course. He said I shouldn’t tell anyone about him because they’d try to ruin our happiness, and he wanted to surprise my friends and family when he came to meet me someday. Please beware of this.....man?????

Elder scammed by Gregory M. Phillips

  • by: kgoc
  • #44401
  • Jan 02, 2018
  • Monetary Loss: $15,310
"Romance scammer" named above scammed me (66-year-old woman alone) of $15,310 from 9/15/17 through 12/20/17. I have a lot of information to substantiate this. At my bank (BB&T) I was told to "CONTACT AUTHORITIES". Two transactions on the scammer account have "suspicious activity". I do NOT know if there is flagging of account, warnings on account, etc. Again, I have a lot of information, but it will need to be copied.

The Romanian Girls/Models supposedly are the worst scammers on the internet. And nobody goes after them.. The penalty of fraud in Romania is tough. The Romanian Criminal Code and specific legislation sets out a number of offences in respect of financial crimes, including: Embezzlement. This is the appropriation, use or trafficking by an official (see Question 7) of a public or private entity, in his own interest or for the benefit of another, with intent, of money or assets he manages. Attempts are punishable. Deceit. This involves the misleading with intent of a person, by presentation as true, of a false act or as false of a true act, with the purpose of obtaining, for him or another unjust material benefit, with the consequence of causing damages. Attempts are punishable. Deceit in agreement. This involves misleading or maintaining an error with intent of a person when executing or performing an agreement, where, without this misleading, the cheated person would not have executed or performed the agreement under the stipulated conditions. Attempts are punishable. I know of 4 girls that are getting away with it right now. Alesia_4u is one of them.....Watch out guys............

I didn't think of that. But not that you say it I think your 110% right. She just sent me a text telling me that next week we will have many offers for the orphanage, if she tells me she got 3.2 million I won't be able to contain my laughter

Bob Kelchner

Jul 28, 2016 1:10 PM

Kelly Dennis

Jul 28, 2016 12:57 PM

OMG, she's stealing our money from us by creating lies. The one thing I've noticed is all her pictures the clothes and rooms the pictures are taken in are nice. She wants me to go to Africa with her to sell the orphanage in Gahanna. She said she's working in a hospital in NY. I asked her for the address so I could send her flowers she wouldn't give it to me.
