Other Comments: Typical Scammer. IP address is Ghana from staart to finish although went as far as pretending to make a trip to my state, hotel reservation too. Script was to cancel, have to take a trip, disappear for a while, reappear and ask for things to be sent to him. phone is area code in NM, same as american express stolen creditcard
Well he at it again. He is now from NC and the story is the same except he lost his wife 7 years ago to a tragic car accident and now he is so lonly. He is a engineer but goes to Ghana to mine raw gems. He has a store in NC that is why he travels so much. He told me he never goes on the sites he is on wealthymen.com and he is still there. He is pathitic and lies so much. He can't even talk english. He claims he is part Indian and his mom is Irish.
I don't understand why The FBI can't do anything about these scum bags. I lost 10K to this man and I wish That when you go on a dating site there are warnings about these people.
Well Ladies all I have to say is be careful of him he is a scammer through and through. Nothing he says is the truth. Don't get caught up like I did. He says all the right things. I fell like a fool and its not just the money I lost but my heart. I fell in love with him as I know these other women did so to. I just wish we could something.
If anyone knows the sites he's on we can jsut report him and get him off the sites. Maybe we will save some other poor victim.
Good luck ladies and Beware of this garbage out there. I am sure not everyone is like him. Please keep posting your stories maybe if there is enough stories we can stop him. I so would like to get back at him but he is a professional and has back up. I advise you to read the site toogoodtobetrue. Its posted by the FBI. If I had only looked at this before. LADIES PLEASE BEWARE OF HIM AND ANYONE WHO FALLS IN LOVE WITH YOU TOO FAST.

Hey, he contacted me also. Thought it was very strange. Even gave me a phone number.Called it a few times before he answered. Could hardly understand him. Traced the number back to Fayetteville, NC. Told me the same sob story about his wife and family. Told him he was a scam artist. Still wasn't sure because he sent me those fake pictures of his passport and drivers license. Also said he was going to Africa to buy gold. Only talked to him for 1 week. Sent me love email. Knew that no real man would do that who only talked to you for a week. Found these quotes online tonight. I'm sorry any of you lost money. Told him the other day that I would never lend friends money. Only make enemies among you. He even told me that he was scammed once years ago. Oh the lies.
Good girl. He is something. He at it again. You should hear soem of the stories he told me. Stopped writing to me when I refused to send him money or give him my banking information.
Ladies beware he preys on the lonely women and the good hearted ones. Comes across has loving God and is a christian. Before you know it you tell me all about yourself and then he uses your insecurities to get you.
Heard from him yesterday on IM after I emailed him and told him what a scam artist he was. He wanted to know how I knew. Told him his name was all over the Internet as a scam artist and how he had taken money from women. He tried to lie his way out of it, but told him I was too educated and worked on computers for a living. He wanted the site name, but I wouldn't give it to him. Also told him I had no money. I said if he was real then come to my city and prove it. He then signed off. Didn't hear back. I did email yahoo and speed date about his id that he was using. Thought about contacting the police in Raeford, NC and give them the phone number he gave me. It is a real number in NC because I googled it. He did answer it because I could not understand him. By the way, I did contact the police in Raeford and gave them the address of the real Carl Hamm and the phone number I was given. If I hear back, I will write and tell you about it.
Thank you for the information. He IM me and told me he was sorry but he really got inot a lot of trouble in Africa. He gave me a number there 23324467006. he asked me to call and I told him I would not. He had my info from a while back. Then he asked me to send him 1000.00$ because he wanted to come to me. I listened to his message and it was not even the same person I was speaking to a month ago. Of course I told him to take a hike. He can't even talk english. Ladies please be careful of this guy.He is a fraud.
I feel bad for the real Carl Hamm who probably doesn't even know this is happening. I reported this to the FBI. I will keep all of you informed if anything else develops.

I'm in as an anniversary of having started this post on Mr. Carl M Hamm. I never would believe he is still using his same profile.
I imagine he has several and pulls one up to instantly nab the next woman. I remember his charming ways and avoiding my questions. He also wanted to know the sites I was on and seemed to catalogue all my answers as if digesting the information. You all do realize this guy is in Africa, right? He is not a guy from North Carolina, not a white attractive fellow but a snake that sits in an internet cafe and does this for a living...
The Raeford police will never contact you back but probably hears from people once a day. I remember them telling me the night I called to check with the better business bureau in NC to see if the business he said he owened even existed. He told me he was running his fathers companies in Real Estate. What a loser! I even found him on facebook and he pretended to be the 'real Carl Hamm' trying desperately to find out who was portraying him. Problem was this loser wasn't any better at english pronunciations, spelling and grammer than his fake African impostor.
If you have him on line never tell him what you are doing, just ignore, block, delete and protect yourself.
Ask him a question about local geography, american slang or the local weather- HE CAN'T ANSWER!!!!
This guy is still trying to contact me.He telling me he is in Toronto cananda and trying to get money to pay for his Hotel bill. I told him to take a hike. He told me the FBI went to see him at the hotel and he told them he was married to me. What a looser. Ladies we need to stop this scum bag.
Don't belive anything he says he is a Fraud and justs wants money nothing else. His stories are good till you know him.
He contact to me under different names and personalities, like carl hamm, william marvin, joseph william, elizabeth giambelluca, vivian peterson, williams james, vivian marvin, from nigeria, west africa, readmon nc usa, aberdaam scotland, cleveland ohio,He is very dangers person, he is a lier, he is a thief.
where to start on this scumbag! He tried real hard, but he didn't get any money from me! He pursued me from CatholicPeopleMeet.com. I chatted with him off and on for about 5 weeks. he called me babe all the time, even though I told him to stop. He kept telling me that he wanted to marry me and that he was in love with me. One morning I found a sexualized IM message on my computer and how he was going to please me. I am sure that I am not the only woman he sent this too. He also told me he lived in NC
and that he was going to Africa to buy gold and pearls, etc. for his high- end jewelry store. He sent me candy and a huge box of other assorted goodies for Easter which I took to work to get rid of them. He had adressed the boxes to my first name and his last name, Hamm. He called me from Africa, and said he needed to cash a travelers check and he would talk to me on IM when he returned. When he returned he said they wouldn't cash his travelers check for 2 weeks and he needed to 'borrow' $3000. to get back to the states to fly out and see me. I told him that he was on his own then if that's the way it was going to go down. Some other guy from the dating site got involved at that point on the scumbags behalf. He said Carl was in an car accident and that he hurt his arm, couldn't communicate, and needed $850. to see a specialist. Unbelievable! Using 2 identities from the same dating site to try to scam me and didn't think I would see that they were working together or the same person! Much of what was said by you ladies before me I experienced also with this jerk and more. He tried to contact my sister as we still use our maiden names. He was trying to scam her, since he didn't get any money from me. I contacted the FBI also. I switched to match.com dating site. One morning I went to my computer again. Guess what?! There he was, in my face as one of my top 10 matches the site e-mailed for the day! Now he said he was in my city. I called the dating site and they said they would pull his profile. It has been a few months since I heard from him as I had my internet provider help me block him. Guess what! The SOB was on my instant messenger when I arrived home today trying to contact me again! I went back to my internet provider again for help. I hope it works this time for good! At this point, we can only pray that somehow we catch this SOB!
I have also reported that SOB to the FBI and he was still tring to contact me calling me his wife. Good for you that you did not send him any money. What a jerk. Take care ladies of this one. He's something else.
Hi again everyone. I'm the comment 2 comments up where Carl Hamm asked me for $3,000. I forgot to mention something important. Carl had me try to use 2 'company' credit cards to sign his brother up on another dating site. Neither of them worked. If he has done this with you, even if the card did not go through, you need to contact the authorities. (police detective, FBI) Do this 'before' the FBI contacts you, because it can stlll look like you tried to use stolen credit cards! He was trying to make me an accomplice!

If I ever find this guy I am going to beat the absolute shit out of him for stealing money from my sister. Watch out Mr. Hamm because I am looking for you. When I find you it won't be a good thing. Do trust that what comes around goes around.

Hello I am sorry Your Sister was scammed but please take the time
to learn what actually happened before You try to seek revenge.
To begin with Mr. Hamm does not exist in the real World.
The real Scammer is sitting in a Internet Cafe in Nigeria ? or Ghana ?
The scammer used a stolen photo and either stole the Name Carl Hamm
or made it up.
Threats made against anyone here on this site are not acceptable.
I agree that being angry about what happened is a normal reaction.
But verbally threatening someone in a Public forum is reckless and
The real scammers are young black guy's fallowing scripts
and never use any of their real information.
Please learn all You can about scams and scammers before making
any more comments.
Even if the scammer involved with Your Sister was from Ghana
the links talk mostly about Nigeria but the same thing applies to both.
Kind Regards Agent 86 Maxwell Smart \\'^o^'// <><
