I met Sylvester on be2. He is handsome and sweet, isn't he ladies! He gives you so many loves songs to listen to and even sings to me on the phone. He calls me 'beauty' and 'sexy pudding'. He said his daughter Natasha was with him on this trip. Sylvester is supposed to be an artist working in Benin on billboards and such with his craft. He said he was born in Germany, speaks German, French and English. His 'thick German accent' is supposed to hide the actual African accent you are hearing on the telephone.

Then starts the scam. First he tells me of his birthday and starts demanding pretty seriously an iphone 3g because he needs it since he dropped his phone and also can do sketches for his work on it. When I wouldn't send one, then all of the sudden his contracts were taken from him and he's coming home to me!! Oh boy, I'm so excited. My husband is on his way. Only problem is now he must come up with money to pay taxes and government officials, etc. before he can leave the country and of course the wife must send this money. He wanted $980 for this.

He's tried every scam with me, he's desperate. Sending checks to me to cash, put into a bank account or credit card and then in turn Western Union my sweetheart the money. DON'T fall for any of this, ladies. It is called FRAUD and you will pay dearly when these checks appear as fraud a few days after you send this scammer the money and you will be held liable. STOP communication with him. All he wants is your cash cash cash. It's all any scammer wants. There is no love or daughter for that matter.

Beware of this scammer ladies. He is very sweet, handsome and good. But don't let him take your heart or money.

anonymous from United States  
I happen to come across this website by accident also. I'm glad I did. I believe I am also being scammed. I met a man on by the name of Peter Hammond claiming to be Norwegian American living in Arlington Heights, IL. He told me he went to school at Bergen Cathedral School..Norway but I contacted that school and they do not have any record of him attending there. He's claiming to be a Civil, Petrochemical and Construction Engineer working on contract with BP and Zenon Oil in The Republic Du Benin building a pedestrian bridge of some sort there. I gave him the benifit of the doubt but after the second week what he was saying wasn't making sense and adding up. I've tried both the US Embassy and the Cotonou Embassy trying to find out about this bridge but no one will help me. Fom the pics he posted on the dating site he is very good looking. He comes across very polite and really trying to find love. He doesn't have a facebook account nor can I locate him by phone number or through associates. He gave me numbers to call and verify who he is but no one will return my calls. He owns his own business and told me the website I tried calling the United States contact number and a foriener answered. I got the story that his secretary quit on him while he was in Benin and when he left New York he left all contact with friends and ex-girlfriend behind. So he has no one to contact to help him and when I asked him if he wanted me to contact his mother or sister he pretty much yelled at me and told me she has a heart condition and by me contacting her would put her in the hospital. He claims his mother lives in Calumet City, IL and his sister in Canada. I ever tried to find a Mrs. Hammond in Calumet City, IL no luck.

The second or third week is when he started asking me to send him money so he can get a better hotel room. Oh, and he told me his sell phone was stolen and all his information for any contacts is on that phone. He's still contacting me now asking if his clients can send me a check so I can deposit it and transfer the money to him via MoneyGram. I've never even heard of MoneyGram. I have been off and on dating sites and I have never been in this situation before. He just keeps saying he loves me and he wants to be with me for the rest of our lives.
