Huge thank you to the other ladies who posted about this scammer.

Met “Douglas” on Tinder. Very well spoken, presents himself very well. He also uses the name Scott Redden.
Claims to be an engineer that also invests in oil & crude. Also says he has a 16 year old daughter.
I was very fortunate to see these posts and caught him early.

Everyone please beware, there are so many scams in these dating sites.

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............

Don't understand how these supposedly web cam models are getting away with these scams. When there reported no one seems to follow up and prosecute or pull them from there online scams.

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

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.
