I am Miss Marple and a contributor at this site, I have met many victims here at this site and I wanted to create an thread for those who are interested to find out how you recognize African male scammers. I met an scammer while ago, and he came from Nigeria and he tried to scam me, that’s why I created this thread so you can save some time and hopefully your Money by reading this general information I have written here.
I have made studies of African scammers in general and collected some stuff. I will represent here some basic information and some good advices what you can think about when you are out on the dating sites and online, which are the best ways to avoid scammers and learn how to spot them.

Are you an woman and have met the most wonderful, good looking and to good to be true man on the internet? He is also very smart, well educated, working probably as an constructor or engineer and travels a lot in his job, He tells you that he is an widower and has raised his child all alone, and he is now looking for true love. He falls in love very quickly and wants to marry you and wants to meet you soon. Suddenly he must travel to Africa. To Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory coast or another west African country for work and he will come back soon to meet you soon as possible. During his visit he gets in lot of trouble, he gets sick or have accidents. And he suddenly needs money, his credit card is not good enough or he’s has trouble to get his money from his account. Then he begins to ask for money.
Is this something you recognize?? You have probably met an scammer from Africa. Nigeria, Ghana and Ivory coast, Senegal and Dakar is the most common countries where scammers comes from, but they do operate with accomplices from European countries also as Germany, Holland and United Kingdom. Malaysia and China has also reported more scammers activities the latest time.
There is lot of different scams, Lottery scams, Charity scams, credit card scams and spams (Variation from the 419 scam)and other different types of scams, But this is page is only about ROMANCE SCAMMERS or DATING SCAMMERS

You can find scammers on every Dating site, Face book, tagged.com and My space and many other different communities .Please read the profiles and look at the photographs, the photos are always stolen from agency models and sometimes from other victims as identity theft: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mijGF9T325Y the agency you can check is http://focushawaii.com. You can also search for photographs in picture search in database at this site http://www.delphifaq.com/cgi-bin/faq_pictest.pl and scamdigger where you upload an photo and see if the scammer is reported in another site http://www.tineye.com/ http://scamdigger.com/ If you think you have contact with an scammer by email, read these general warning signs

WARNING SIGNS:

1.Scammers use templates before they starts to ask for money and there is variations in time in that also before they do that from 2 weeks until 2-3 years. Scammers use templates because they scam many people at the same time and have no time to write personal mails.
2.Look for the language, scammers has often very bad grammar and their skills in European language is bad, the templates are often translated by GOOGLE
3.They fell in love very quickly and talk about endless and undying LOVE
4.Avoiding your questions in the mails (typical for scammers who use templates) but variations do exist in this also.
5. Asking money from strangers is a scam, African, Russian, man,woman makes NO DIFFERENCE! http://ladies-russia.net/Scam.php
6.The scammer tells you to end your dating site account because you are the only true love for him (this is the way he can control the victim)
7.Scammers uses an +44 as an UK number to confuse victims with that they are in UK but they are in fact in Nigeria . ID Spoofing
http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Caller_ID_spoofing
8.If it sounds to good to be true it is often that also.

What can you do to protect yourself?

You must protect yourself even if it is not an scammer you are talking to. Never give out any personal information to somebody that you don’t know such your home address, telephone numbers no bank account/credit card numbers or other sensitive information as log in to your email addys or other accounts .Scammers asks for telephone numbers so they can convince people with their undying love as they asks for money, so don’t give out any phone numbers to foreigners. As scammers are criminal in the cyber world their knowledge in computers are very good .Get yourself an good Antivirus program to protect you from malware and spams, never click on links that unknown people sends you in mails, there could be an trojan waiting for you. As trojan is an malware and is created to steal and copy information from other computers.

How do scammers work out and how do you recognize them??

Maybe you are talking for the moment with an scammer but nothing is not what it appears to be as the wonderful man you talking to is an criminal sitting in a internet cafe and knows exactly what he is doing ,because he has done this so many times before that you can’t even imagine that your lovely man is only an criminal and wants to have your money, they are trained to be psychological and knows exactly what to talk and uses your weaknesses to get you into the trap. They send you gifts and talks poetry to you to get you really fall in love. And when you are enough in love then they starts to ask for money. They suddenly gets in to trouble and get into accidents and make up fake stories and involves other scammers also pretending to be doctors and lawyers or barristers that the story sound so real as possible, so that the victim feels empathy and open up the wallet to the scammer. They ask money for anything, from food to hospital bills, they can even send you fake documents that you have to sign your personal information that you suddenly can get involved in the crimes to without any knowledge of what you have really got involved into. As scammers are criminals they are involved in money laundry and drugs. They use most Western union to transfers to receive money from victims, but money gram is also more common now. Scammers uses stolen identities from other victims from another earlier scams or stolen from internet also. So the names they use to collect your money in are not their own names. So catch theses scammers are very difficult because of this.
The grammar is very bad as their skills are not good in English so they use templates translated by some translator and many time the scammers uses GOOGLE to translate their letters, so look for the language in the letters you receive from the scammers. Scammers uses much religion also in their scams they talk many times that they are GOD fearing and pretend to be very religious. http://www.delphifaq.com/faq/male_scammers/f3269.shtml?p=11#comments often the scammers has children and they are widowers also, because in this way they can affect the victims in a emotionally way to the single mothers, everybody can be scammed but they often seek for single women with kids and in the age of 40, as people has generally made carrier and has an stabile economic situation as that attract scammers of course.

What can you do if you suspect you talking to an scammer?

If you suspect that the person you are talking to on the internet is an scammer, there is sites where you can seek for photographs, as I have put an link in the beginning of this information, but there is others you can do also, if you have contact with an scammer through email, you can look up the IP address, that the person uses and see if the person uses forged IP or has been reported to an scammer site. If the IP address is forged it is absolutely an scam, no real and honest person uses forged IP address, and if they begin to start talking about Africa that they are travelling to Nigeria or Ghana for business or work it is an scam also. Even if they have not asked for money yet it can be an scammers as well, as they can wait with that question a long time. Look for information on the internet what your love is doing and report scammers to sites because only by reporting scammers you reduce the scammers to operate and scam other people. Talk to other people about scamming and inform your friends who you also are talking to on the internet. If you have been scammed you must of course report this crime to the nearest authorities in your hometown and country. And here I have some links where you can find also information what you can do if you have been scammed, but I must put out an warning if you want to report scammers to authorities in Africa be careful who you are talking to, and also find out if it is real people you have contact with, as scammers abuses also this and goes under fake persons and scams people by saying the helping scammed people, there is a lot of fake detectives, so be careful who you are talking to and who you leave your personal information to.

Miss Marple from United States  
I want to wish all of you A HAPPY NEW YEAR ! regardless you are a Victim,friend or a visitor.

This year have been interesting in many ways,so what do we remember most from the year 2012 ?,well Obama was re-elected as President of United States of America.The world was supposedly to go under 122112 according to the Maya cultures calendar.Hurricane Sandy that took 253 lives and still the work goes on recovering the damage it caused.26 were killed in a school massacre just before Christmas how can we forget such a horrific act of meaningless violence?

This is what i remember from the news this year..maybe you have different memories than mine...maybe you have met a scammer that touched you emotionally and took all your life savings or you met a scammer online and saw immediately it is a scam or you have a friend that met a scammer online whether the reasons are i am happy that you came here and read this posting,i just want to remind you what can actually happen too people online .

This Year the site has received 250 reports on new scammers on the male section,of course i think it is 250 too many ,i do not want any scammers online targeting people but that is only my wishful thinking of course. Scammers are also getting more advance and sophisticated in the way how to scam people in ,but remember the Modus Operandi is still the same even if the scammer are using Magic Jack or not only scamming people on the dating sites nowadays,scammers have moved in to peoples private rooms as Facebook ,yes Facebook is the most dangerous place today and anyone can get hit by a scammer online.

Please do not give out personal information to strangers online,no credit card information,social security numbers that can lead into your accounts as banking and other sensitive accounts.Do not send photos with your kids to strangers as scammers use them in scams ,do not give out phone numbers to strangers until it is safe who you are talking with,scammers calls victims to get more intimate and bond with people and then it is very easy to fall for the scam. Scammers stalks people with phone calls and that can end up with major problems for the victims who receives calls in every hour of the day.

But the most important thing :Do not send money to strangers online ,whether the reason is what scammers asks for .You will never see the lost money every again ,there are no jurisdiction overseas even if i courage people to report to police or FBI ,it do not mean that you can get your money back.It is very hard to catch scammers as they hide behind stolen IDs ,reporting scams to Ghana or Nigeria police is useless also ,the police do not care as they see the money sent to the scammers pocket is regarded as a gift ,you can not prosecute anyone who has received a gift.This is how the general thinking goes .

I know people that comes to this site sometimes and wants to catch a scammer ,the truth is that they will be placed in a very dangerous position ,scammers are no toys ,they are criminals that do this daily to people ,scammers have no empathy or any feelings towards the victim ,they only thing they care for is MONEY,this is pure business for them.
So trying to catch them i would say is impossible for a person that is in a another country ,far away from where the scams are made from and the law can not reach them as crime has to be proven too,and how that is possible when these scammers knows how to hide them selves.

Confronting scammers with the truth is useless and can also be dangerous for the victim who wants to in pure anger tell the scammer what she knows which can be actually devastating in the end ,The scammer do not admit any crimes why should he? The scammer will be just better into scam the next victim ,do not educate scammers ! If you know that you are in contact with a scammer,just block the scammer and walk away,report the scammer to a antiscam site .Spread the word !

When you confronting a scammer with what you know you can also get threats which can be very scary for victims who already are broken down emotionally and financially by the scammer and can easily manipulate the victim once again . If you have sent money to a scammer and you find out that you are scammed ,block the scammer ,change emailaddress and phone numbers as fast as you can ! Scammers never stops asking for money ! Scammers do have co workers and sells the victims infomation further and suddenly you have all kind of spams and scammers chasing the victims with all kind of lies. Scammers can also pretend to be FBI or police that wants to help you out with the lost money to a scammer (RECOVERY SCAMS) which is all just to trick the victims to fall for a another scam.

Then there is a another thing when it comes to scams that can be a very dangerous position for the scam victims,scammers asks the victims to come to meet them in Ghana or Nigeria ,do not even think about that,horrible things have happened to people who have actually traveled to meet a scammer , violence ,rapes and even murders have been reported .There are victims that actually been forced by the scammers into scam people and held as hostage by the scammers.

When it comes to scam baiting ,i have done it my self mainly Africans from Ghana,Nigeria and Senegal and some Russians too but mainly to find out how they operate.If you are thinking about to bait scammers ,never ever give out personal information to scammers as i said they are no toys and can get really pissed when they find out someone is just playing a game..to victims who are hurt by scammers do not even consider to bait the scammer you have been involved in ,the scammer has all the information on you,the scammer can turn the tables and you will get threats or hanged out on the internet.

Heal your self first from a scam emotionally ,educate your self on scammers and how they operate ,there are sites online who assists people for the ones who wants to bait.

To all victims online i hope you will have a better year to come ...
and to all others HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

Miss Marple,
I am the woman who posted about the Lebanese man named Ali Hasan Moussaoui, aka Ali Moussaoui.
He has an e mail, his work e mail, of:
mousaou@usc.edu.
I am actually pregnant by him.
Initially, when we met, he said he had been divorced for 2 years, from his ex-wife, Roba Moussaoui and that he had loved her beyond reason and had given her everything she ever wanted and had paid to bring her entire family here from Lebanon, and had just loved her so effingmuch, but that she had divorced him for no reason. Then and there, I knew he would be nothing but a problem, becuase I suspected that he STILL loved her and always would. (Little did I know that, he was also a sociopath of the worst kind and was making me his victim).
He has 4 grown children.
Fst forward, as long as I've known him, he has claimed to be flat broke and never have money. But he has worked at USC for over 30 years and teaches at Riverside Community College.
But he's 'broke.'?
He claimed that he really wanted to have a baby with me and that I would never have to worry about money--all these things he said in the beginning, before telling me how effing broke he was. Then he had me move out of my own home and move in with him and his his 2 almost-18 year old sons, into his cesspool of a filthy single apartment, with no room and just a tiny stall for a bathroom. I moved in with him, lived in poverty, ate whatever he put in front of me and I never complained, as I kept listening to his promises that it would 'get better because (he) can generate lots of money whenever (he) wants to, but it'll take a little time.'
Meanwhile, he kept breaking the smallest to biggest of promises---he never ever wore his engagement ring(that we had bought from Walmart, because he claimed to be brokr--he had even asked me to pay for part of those cheap rings!!!). He never called me when he said he would. He constantly broke his promises and always had excuses. Later, I found his e mail(he'd given me his passsword) and I discovered he was still on any dating sites. He made excuses for those, claiming that he had 'gotten off those sites,' but that they kept sending him e mails.
When his 2 older daughters were rude and mean to me, he did NOTHING to defend me---HE ACTUALLY YELLED AT ME TO APOLOGISE TO THEM!!!
He became mean and demanding.
He refused to please me sexually.
He got me pregnant on a hard, uncomfortable table, while having the worst, most unsatisfying sex with me, eventhough I had repeatedly told him that I, too, deserved to be pleased.
But, of course, he had excuses for that, too.
Fast forward 7 months, I am now pregnant and poor and indigent.
My family are a bunch of a-holes who feel they are too good to help or support me.
He has done so many things to me that have caused me to become so angry that I have called his ex wife---but she immediatly called the police and then called him.
Do you what he did?
HE ACTUALLY GAVE HIS EX WIFE ALL MY PRIVATE INFORMATIONA, MY NAME, ADDRESS, E MAIL, PHONE NUMBERS, EVERYTHING AND THEN DID THE SAME WITH THE POLICE. HE ACTUALLY LET THE COPS LOOSE ON ME, HIS PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND WHO IS PREGNANT WITH HIS INNOCENT CHILD!
And then he had an excuse for that, too.
He claimed---lied, like always---that he had no choice.
WIT, YOUR EX WIFE DEMANDS YOUR PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND'S INFO AND THE POLICE COME OVER, WHEN NONE OF THEM KNEW WHO I WAS, TO BEGIN WITH, SO THEN YOU VOLUNTARILY GIVE UP EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT ME???
That was when I knew and could no longer deny I had met a cold sociopath and that was when I finally faced the truth and dumped him.
He still occassonally tries to contact me, but the difference is that I no longer care and no longer respond.
The truth is that He's taken all my energy and all I had to give and now I have nothing left to give anyone.
And, I am pregnant and I, for one, am really broke.
Please, please tell what u think . Do not hold back.
Oh, I already know that I am done, but I'm curious as to what another person or persons would say to all of this.

I am the one who posted about the Lebanese U.S. citizen: Ali Moussaoui.
I forgot to state that I originally met him on Plentyoffish.com dating site.
His first e mail to me was , as I later discovered via his e mails to hundreds of other women, a cut and paste messege . It was the EXACT same messege he had sent to every other woman on every other site.
His excuse---he was full of excuses--was that Well, he just sooo busy, that he wanted to meet a woman to 'love,' but didn't have time to compose a different e mail to each woman.
As we met and our so-called(and very miserable ) relationship progressed, there were so many times when he'd be driving his car on an empty tank of gas and then we would again and again get stuck on the streets and he would look at me sheepishly and I would have to end up paying for gas.
Mind you, this is the same man that, initially, claimed to want to get me pregnant and have a family with me and tell me that, with him, I would never have to worry about a thing, because he would take care of 'everything.'
To this day, he continues to take the best care of is 2 lazy 18-year old sons, BUT HAS NEVER EVER CONTRIBUTED A FLAT PENNY TO ME---AND I AM THE ONE WHO IS PREGNANT WITH HIS CHILD!!!
He claimed to be broke and destitute, yet he and his 2 sons have never missed a meal or anything else.
He regularly drives them everywhere, they (the 2 lazy s.o.b. sons have no job and do not take the public bus) and they eat like kings.
Yet he has always told me that he is broke and cannot give me any money.
Thus far, I have included his one e mail that I know of;
moussaou@usc.edu.
But I'm sure he has many others I do not know about.
I have also included 2 different pics of him, befor.
But now I am posting another pic of him and a pic of his ex wife, Roba Moussaoui and his 2 daughters.
I do not have pics of his sons.

Please, please tell what u think . Do not hold back.


I can not say more than this is very tragic for you and the unborn baby ,sociopaths are everywhere in this world,you meet them in your daily life ,it can be a teacher,it can be the neighbor you say hi to every morning ,anyone !! You can not see on people that they are women beaters ,it is not print on the forehead he is a killer .They look often very ordinary ,they can be very friendly and even charming ,but you can never know until you get to know them and are involved and then it is too late .

I am not a person in the position to tell you what you are going to do or not in this situation ,what i would like to say is that you need real help not help online like this as i do not think you will have the answers from me you really need ,you need help for you and for your unborn baby and that you are safe ,nothing else !

I know you have come here as you seem not to have any living soul supporting you for the moment and are basically desperate ,go to a consular or to a shelter for women where they can give you help right away !!Or go to your local church ,they will not let you down. You are pregnant you have to take care of your self and your unborn baby,i say this as the shape of a mother too,there is nothing else more important for you at this moment than that you think about your unborn baby,forget this lunatic garbage a-hole who has no conscience on anything in life .This thing will eat you up totally inside and out ....be proud of what you are instead ,the woman you are and the mother you are becoming to be soon and find help for you !!

There is always help for anyone who wants to be helped !!

Romance Scam Victims

Over the past decade, Online Dating Magazine estimates that close to a million Americans have become victims of romance scams. Worldwide, the number is several million. In Britain, a research study by the University of Leicester found that more than 200,000 British citizens have fallen prey to a romance scam. And that is costly.
According to the National Consumer League (NCL), in 2011 the average amount of money lost by a romance scam victim was $5,500. The director of NCL’s Fraud Center, John Breyault, puts it best when he says, “Love is a powerful emotion that these criminals manipulate to extract large sums of money from their victims.”
US Consulate Emails Reveal Depth of Scams
Because the idea of love is so powerful, many victims believe the stories they are being told to the point that they contact authorities to help the person they are in love with at the same time they are sending them money. For example, The US Department of State published some communications sent to the US Consulate General Lagos (Nigeria). They are from people who have been sending romance scammers money and are desperate to help them out of their “emergency” situation as there seems to be no hope in sight.

Military Romance Scams Impacting More Victims, Say Investigators

Looking for love has become more complicated than ever, and scams on the internet continue to be a major risk for anyone involved in online dating or social networking. These days, it can be nearly impossible to tell who you’re dealing with online. Even as media and law enforcement work to inform internet users, internet criminals continue to develop new and hard to detect methods of stealing your money and your identity. Experts say military scams are among the highest growing scam type targeting victims on online dating and social networking sites.

Recent research on romance scams revealed that one out of ten profiles on social networks and dating sites is a fake. Investigators fear that that figure is even higher. Even individuals who are not criminals exaggerate their identity, or even create false data to protect their identity. In other cases, victims simply don’t realize the risk of sharing everything online for the world to see. Criminals are increasingly targeting victims online with scams and much more serious crime. Police departments around the country say many burglary, assault, rape and even homicide cases start with online research or stalking. Criminals can get your information from Facebook and then find your address and image of your home on the internet. The risk is high, and the violation of privacy is a major concern to international investigators who investigate these cases.

Military scams are a growing problem and a booming business for scammers. Victims around the world trust people in the military, so by using the alias of a soldier, victims are more likely to take the bait and trust the criminal behind the scam. This can result in a higher “success” rates for the scammer who can be located anywhere in the world, such as Romania, Russia, Ukraine, West Africa, Philippines or Malaysia. Countries like Nigeria and Ghana now have criminal accomplices working in Europe and developed countries like Canada. Law enforcement is struggling to keep up. Making matters worse, romance scam victims often learn there is little that can be done, and even when reporting to the FBI, Interpol or local police, agencies rarely investigate.

Dating background checks by professional investigation firms offer trusted solutions for internet users around the world, and more people are turning to reputable private investigators to verify their online contacts. It is a form of insurance that can keep you safe, say investigators and fraud experts. By having your online contact verified, you reduce your risk for romance scams, identity theft and more serious crime. It can give you peace of mind and keep you safe.

Try to keep conversation through messages and emails on the social media sites and online dating sites, rather than using your own email. Take your time and watch out for red flags. If you meet Mr. or Ms. Perfect online, and he’s currently overseas in the military, be skeptical.

Best of luck,

A Hathaway

I have been scammed by a man I connected with on matchdotcom. He was everything I was looking for. He claimed to be an engineer, self employed (they always are) and the day we were to actually meet, he was suddenly summonded to Malaysia to win the bid on the oil contract. I fell for it all, I trusted him.
He too posted as never married and a son. The stories he can tell you just blow your mind with horrific sadness and problem after problem.
Yes he claims to take hius name off of the dating site and yet I find out through my investigation he has been on it. Recently I went back on the dating site and who comes across my screen...yes you guessed it. Same picture, same profile, maybe a few changes and a different profile name for sure.

Do not fall for this man.
