That is why there is a delay from placing a post to it appearing live on the site so I can filter all potential scammers, trolls, abuse etc. I also have to say that I don’t understand what "playing" with them accomplishes. If you want to "play" try a board game or get another hobby. The last thing we wanted is to give them more leverage. As with others here he asked some odd questions, i.e., what did I eat for breakfast or what was I going to eat for lunch, did I want to come feed him.
I don’t understand why anyone would give a suspected scammer access to what should be OUR space to help other women by posting our stories. This is suppose to be a safe place to share our stories and get input from others that have been victims. He approached the wrong girl – I’m terminally ill, partially paralyzed, never wanted children, can’t cook and don’t clean, don’t care for country or gospel music, and am not particularly religious.
After that I decided to see if I could Google him as he said he had an office in Long beach. He claimed that he fell in love with me madly from day 1.
I couldn't find him so I Googled his name with oil rigger. And he's so so sweet everyday with the calls and texts.
I also consider myself very lucky that I was spared the heartache that other women have gone through with him and others like him. The less we interact with them the less hold they have on us. No online presence in the name he gave, no verifiable info forthcoming. Supposedly now on drilling platform in Poland, having a bad day, and machinery order held up with final payment needed, bank account frozen because he didn't notify them he's abroad. I have received so many friend requests through a friend. I just wanted to add that my guy used the name Micheal (NOT MICHAEL) John.
It's hard to understand why predators like this are allowed to carry on without consequences. I’d post his pic but interestingly enough it is gone from FB.
I did not disclose too much infofmation about myself, so he does have my e_mail and phone number, but he has never called me only sent text messages. James Edmund,the scammer had a Facebooks profile that disappeared and reappeared within two weeks of me chatting to him on whatsapp, he said he was coming to UK from Miami 3pm Friday January 5, 2018- there was no flight from Miami to Gatwick at that time - I checked, he failed to provide photos of being on an oil rig and I asked right at the start, but claimed he fell in love with me ASAP - which is unusual, wrote me a poem, as another victim on your website stated, appeared controlling, trying to manipulate me induce empathy/feeling sorry for him - I kept saying to him I was guarded and don't trust people easily but I preferred it to stay that way until I get to know him (knowing I already googled him and there were discrepancies).
