I know I had submitted my scammer two days ago and wasn't sure but I AM SURE now my scammer is using the name of ALAN ARMSTRONG all the information given to me adds up to the profile of a NIGERIAN SCAMMER.

I met 'Alan' through Match.com received a very nice short email with the photos of a handsome warm hearted looking man on June 8 2008. I felt hook and sinker for it. I was innocent and naive about these dating/romance scammers. I am very SAD and heartbroken about it. This is what his profile showed:

LIFESEED
'A relationship starts with a step forward, Are you ready to step Forward?'
45 year old man
Greater Manchester, UK
Widowed
1 daughter (later introduced with photos as KELLY)
White/Caucasian
Occupation: Petroleum Engineer
Oil and gas Industries

He gave me a telephone number in the UK 44-703-5902-664.

When I called him one day after he said I should feel free to call anytime, weird things happened. got disconnected, somehow the voice on the telephone was not as I Imagined the voice of the sweet face man would be, deep voice with a slight french accent, at first he would not really speak as clearly, his voice sounded even more attractive to me.
We immediately at his request got on YAHOO IM and our romance took off rather quickly between our conversations on IM and a number of emails with beautiful loving words, the greatest romance ever........I FELT completely FOR IT.
For almost two months now, our fervent love was going so well.......with plans of meeting each other in my country......after he returns from a project/job in NIGER-DELTA. AFRICA.
ALL was going great for me...-so I thought -.....until while in Nigeria his daughter had an accident falling off a stair case..........'and the most horrible thing is that I do not have enough money to pay the hospital bill'.
POOR me ....so in love sent him money to pay off the bill.. his undying love for me continues.......... We have continued to be in touch and for the last two weeks at least he encountered a new problem paying the VAT taxes (Value Added Taxes) for his pay check, before he can return to the UK and needs me to help him with US$10,000.00 !!!! for his salary payment of US$500,000 - sent me a 'copy' of the pay out order.

With a name like ALAN ARMSTRONG fron the UK I believed everything he said and because of this I've given him a number of my photos, my real addresses, he knows I am real and my profession is for real.!!!

My suspicions grew to my alarm after I started checking the poetic romantic phrases he wrote me on YIM and in his email messages........and to my dismay I found the majority of them in websites like LOVINGYOU.COM, MERE MORTALS, ROMANCESCAM.COM verbatim almost every word, with the exception of the first two emails, where he shows more spelling mistakes, the rest of the messages are all great copy paste jobs. Almost nothing he has said to me came from him directly!!

His writings are not original the smooth talker is good at copy / pasting.

I am unto him, now........but MY GOD how much it hurts me to realize my KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR IS NOTHING but a smooth operator scammer, in NIGERIA........probably from NIGERIA.

Below i share his last email, after I am stalling on sending him the US$10,000 asking him to send me a recent photo of him and his daugher together as proof of life and confirm his ID so I can go ahead and send him the money.........

My queen ....
Thanks for your mail, i have really miss talking to you this morning,......I know that neither one of us had in mind that we would meet someone on the Internet and fall in love but it has happened. And for that, I have no regrets. In fact, it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in years. For this, and what has happened to us and between us I have you to thank.

For the past months, you have brought so much joy to me that words can never explain... you have brought so much life back into a lifeless body and we have not even met face to face. I know and realize what it is to LOVE again and to feel loved.

I never thought it would last this long, but it has. This is a clear indication that we have so much in common and we are building on something that is real. I hope we get the chance to see this thing through,....honey as you said in your mail you beleive in me,.. i beleive in you too all we need here is trust and good faith not proves and daught.....honey you mean the world to me i have vowed to God that i want to spend the rest of my life loving you everyday

There have been hard times, bad times and good times, but with that comes lonely times. We have reached new and higher grounds with what we have shared in the past months, and I would do it all over again with you if I had to. I have no regrets.

I am sending you this to let you know that I have been sent an angel to be with me, and you are that angel.

Please understand that we have so much to give to each other and I look forward to that day. I believe it is closer now than ever before. It is just that there may be a few more obstacles that we need to clear up, and I think you know what I am talking about. Besides that, we can and I know we will survive,...please honey if you love me like you said you will help me without daught....i am here to join my faith with your's honey....please dont let me down nobody else in this world know how we truely feel for each other
I do love you
ALAN

His original first email:
How are you doing today, i hope you are having a nice day.I am Alan Armstrong i am from United Kingdom and i am a petroleum engineer,i just joined the site in search of love then i saw your profile which really captivated my attention, I like to get to understand who you are what you want our of life and a relationship, I believe from what i read in your profile.Your best feature is your heart, I saw so much light in you that I was drawn to mail you. You are so lighthearted and your smile so full of joy, i know that love can not bring understanding but understanding can bring about love, i believe there is a lot we need to learn from each orther, they say a bird at hand is better than thousand in the sky, i will love to know what you want as a person, right from the first time i saw you i knew there is a connection between us you can contact be with my personal email account as i do not come on this site offen alanarms1//AT//yahoo/./com. I hope to hear from you soon
Alan

I have more email messages, and saved YIM conversations.........HAS ANYONE SEEN THIS PHOTO BEFORE........DOES ANYONE KNOW THIS GUY?
PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG!!

I suggested to him to seek help at the BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER but he says they cannot help because he is there on a consultant basis, the bristish ambassador is on leave..........he also given me a telephone number in NIGERIA where I have spoken to him a couple of times...........HE HAS A SEXY DEEP VOICE WITH A SLIGHT FRENCH ACCENT.
Today we are still in touch through YIM and I still have received more loving messages, but now his main focus of conversation is my supporting him with paying this TAX.

There is no doubt ALAN scammed me of $1,100 plus western union charges. paid in NIGERIA with Francs, approximately 453,000 + francs.

As soon as he arrived in AFRICA he was on YIM and gave me this phone number in NIGERIA 2347034623334
ADDRESS IN NGA: 6 HOPE CRESENT GOVERNMENT RESERVATION AREA BENIN CITY EDO STATE.
BANK ADDRESS: SKYE BANK # 2 FORESTRY ROAD BENIN CITY

Loosing the money HURTS but what HURST more is the emotional disappointment of falling in love with someone who is NOT REAL and will never be part of my real world. He doesn't know how much I know now about his scam. I need to stop all communication but I need to do it SAFELY as he has my information.

It helps to keep in mind that the photos of this man are in all likelihood stolen with the real owner not even aware of this!! But that the man behind YIM and the sexy voice is a NIGERIAN posing as someone else.

It is difficult for me to share this BUT I want to help someone else AVOID being the victim of this SCUMBAG SCAMMER FROM NIGERIA.

The first 2 photos were in his MATCH.COM PROFILE. He gave me the 3rd PHOTO. The last Photo is the one he is using now on YAHOO IM. I have examined the photo closely and it is the photo of the same person.

YOUR COMMENTS WILL BE ENCOURAGING AND APPRECIATED.

Painfully aware of a scammer........but fighting back the SCUMBAGS...

Thanks a lot for doing this. I've just be contact by Alan Armstrong and i was checked because i have been abuse by 2 others guys one on meetic and the other one today on match.
Fortunately their storues was so similar that i had adoubt, when it is time to meet, the guy must travel to africa with his kid.

I also received this morning the photos of Alan A. and i started to check on the net so here i am. Many thanks because since i went on the net to find love i only met that kind of person from UK?

The guy a chated with today pretend to be Bill Moris in Birmingham.
Unfortunately i sent my photos too to them, but i told them that i know about who they are.

The one i met on meetic pretend to be Stephen Westmore, widowed with a son. Last week he sent me mail asking me 500 euros and that how i knew that it was an impostor.

We have to be prudent, as the websites do nothing.

Dear Lady, Thank you very much for posting your information on ALAN ARMSTRONG the SCAMMER I should not be amazed that he is still using this NAME/ALIAS and these PHOTOS and I am so very glad you checked on the internet and found this information to save you heartache and loosing your money.

It will be very helpful if you can also post the emails and Intant Messenger names he uses if its different from the one already published on here. Also if you could include the ones for Bill Moris and Stephen Westmore as in doing this you will also be helping other potential victims become AWARE about these SCUMBAGS!

YES we must be prudent and we must learn to identify the many clues that will help us recognize when we are dealing with a SCAMMER

Please note and BEWARE if you are in contact with a WHITE MAN who is going to West Africa for a job/work/business or is already in West Africa = SCAM = SCAMMER = ROMANCE SCAMMER. He will send you beautiful loving words through emails and Instant Messenger, get into your heart and gain your trust to get into your wallet!!

The loving words is usually poetry copy and pasted from the internet websites like Lovingyou.com and many others. The photos are stolen from either models or innocent victims. These SCUMBAGS also pose as women to SCAM men.

If the man has a very deep voice with a slight French accent is the same NIGERIAN using different NAMES/ALIASES.

By publishing all of their information: photos, email address, instant messenger IDs, email messages, addresses, telephone numbers, etc., you are EXPOSING THEM and helping other would be victims of these SCUMBAGS scammers.

This guy tried to scam me via match.com. He asked me to buy him a computer and cell phone and fedex them to accra ghana address. The address is supposedly a hotel and the manager's name is Richard Omoateng Cooper. The picture he sent me is probably not his real picture. Has anyone seen his picture on any of the other dating sites? He goes by the name Alan Burnie. His email address is mcalan_3@rocketmail.com

Hi, I have not seen this photo before BUT is a good thing you are checking out and posting this information on here because IT IS a scam as we know a white man writing you asking for such items living in Ghana is unlikely real. It will help also if you could post the 'hotel' full address, telephone number, some of the story because he must be in contact with others looking to scam.
The name of the manager Richard Omoateng Cooper he is given you is probably his real name or the name of someone who has a valid passport in that name to collect the items.

Check the photo on here and also on www.romancescam.com photos. If I see it I will post a follow up on here.

BEWARE photo of a WHITE MAN IN West Africa = Scam = Scammer or ROMANCE SCAMMER

I have also recently been contacted by somneone that I belive to be a scammer fromNigeria, I almost fell for his sweet words and comfort until today when I received an email that I knew was too good to be true because it sounded like plagerism and when I went on yahoo to check sure enough I came across this very website and saw that this had to be the same man.. he approached me on myspace as John Hudson and said that he was from North HJOllywood California, he said that his wide died 3 years ago and that he inherited a car dealership anbd house from his late father.
He told me that he was currently in Lagos, Nigeria Africa on business looking for cheap cars to export back to California to sell. From the beginning he was very romantic and even a little pushy about saying that he loved me and would never let go now that he found me.. He kept saying that he wanted to come straight here from Africa when he was done and then we would go to California.. But I kept asking him questions because I was suspicious and he seemed irritated that I was asking and avoided most of my questions by trying to say romantic things to me to avoid... I knew something wasnt right because his writing seemed off as if he was not maybe AMerican and his speeling on some words was phoentic and not correct. I have advised him that I was onto him and his scam but he may try with someone else..


Here is the first myspace message he sent me:

HELLO DEAR,HOW ARE U DOING. MY NAME IS JOHN HUDSON, I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA...AM 3O YEARS OLD.
I JUST GOT INTO THIS SITE COS AM NEW TO ..INTERNET.
SO.. WHILE SERCHING THROUGH THIS SITE, I SAW UR PROFILE. AND I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED ABOUT ALL WHAT I SAW ON UR PROFILE, AND I REALLY ADMIRE UR PIC TOO.I WILL LIKE U TO GIVE ME THE CHANCE TO GET TOI KNOW MORE ABOUT U.

I HAVE BEEN LONELY FOR 3YEARS NOW, COS I LOST MY WIFE, AND EVER SINCE THEN, I HAVE NOT FOUND HAPPINESS. I REALLY NEED HAPPINESS, IN MY LIFE AGAIN THAT IS WHY I CONTACTED U ON HERE. PLS...IF U WANT TO GET TO KNOW ME.

GOD BLESS U




Here is his last email to me, this is the one that blew up his cover:

hun,i am here thinking of you Last night, in my dreams, I saw you on the pier. The wind was blowing through your hair, and your eyes held the fading sunlight. I was speechless as I watched you leaning against the rail. You are beautiful, I thought as I saw you, a vision that I could never find in anyone else. I slowly began to walk toward you, and when you finally turned to me, I noticed that others had been watching you as well. 'Do you know her?' they asked me in jealous whispers, and as you smiled at me I simply answered with the truth, 'Better than I know myself.

Here is another email from him

Wednesday, October 8, 2008 5:34 PM
From: 'J hudson' <lebe4@yahoo.com>
I know someday we will meet and spend our lives with each other. I have waited for someone like you, and now that I have found you I will never let you go. I love you so much

Here is another:

hun,how r u doing today,i am just here in the hotel room lonely,how i wish am with u now,am sorry am not back online yesterday,cos i slept off hun.it is late yesterday,and i was just thinking of u hun,cos am happy you bring me back happiness.

And another:

It's 4.00am of the day and I was thinking about you, as usual. I want you to know how much I sincerely love the countless hours we spend talking. It means so much to me. It truly seems like I've known you forever and I honestly can't imagine life without you now. There will be no looking back, no second thoughts and no regrets. I love you and only you ... and that love will only grow stronger. Sometimes life hits you with unexpected things that take you totally by surprise. All I can say is you're the best surprise life has given me and your capacity for love, caring, and understanding never ceases to amaze me. I've truly been blessed by finding you and I'll never let you go.


As you can see he was a sweet talker but obviously he is apart of this scam, although he never asked for money, I am sure we just didnt get to that part yet before I caught him.... Beware if jerks like this.. It was sad and disappointing that there was not really a knight in shining armor out there waiting for me.. but maybe we can save someone else from gettinf hurt


I am attaching his pictures
