Online Dating Scams

  • Romance Scam and Money Scam


    I met Douglas Dorsey on Badoo on December 1,2015, an online dating site. Over time he said he loved me and wanted to marry me. Eventually I sent him a total of $1300.00. Then a few months ago he tried to deposit $40,000.00 in my bank. The bank caught it in time and told me it was a Nigerian Scam.

  • Online Dating Scam Artist and Emotional Rapist Timothy Moore


    Meet man who called himself Timothy Moore on Okcupid (online dating website). His email is [email protected], phone # 646-543-3529, birthday April 30, 1970, and Passport #423801248 issued Houston, TX February 5, 2013. Claimed to live in Houston for last 3 years after tragic death of wife while in childbirth with twins that also died. Prior to that lived in Portugal. Claimed to own his own business that he was a building contractor and he does jobs all over the world and was very successful at it. Talking via cell phone and text but always had an excuse for not meeting in person...said wanted to get to know me better first...2 1/2 weeks in suddenly his father dies and he must leave for Portugal...shortly thereafter get the most romantic intense email I've ever received professing how much he loved me and that I completed him, etc. Over the course of the next few weeks he convinces me of his unconditional love for me and I fall head over heels in love with him. He went from Portugal after funeral to France to sign on new job (build hotel in Manilla) to Manilla. I invited him to join me on a cruise at beginning of December (figured best way to truly get to know him and have quality time with him)...2 weeks before cruise next tragic event -- claimed $200K fraudulently taken out of his bank account and his accounts had now been frozen while they did their investigation. Week before cruise the requests for money began -- first it was to pay workers so they wouldn't strike, then it was to pay more to workers so they wouldn't strike & he get arrested, then it was to pay taxes in order to leave the country & not be arrested. He never made it to the cruise...received phone call from a "Barrister Cheng" (852 5803 4564)([email protected]) informing me that Tim had been arrested at Honk Kong airport for possession of heroine -- found in his jacket pocket -- that he believed had been put there by man sitting next to Tim on the plane (supposedly a famous Pakistan drug dealer). I gave my email address to Barrister Cheng and communicated with him while on cruise...even called his cell phone 3 prearranged times so I could talk to Tim who was sick at one point and not eating...once I returned to US then final money request came in -- $36K to bribe HK police officials to sign paperwork that would set Tim free. Fortunately only had $10K more that I could give (now had "loaned" Tim $46K with this last wire transfer) but still he needed more...talked with a close friend about everything that had transpired to date and she was convinced that I was the victim of an online dating scam...that I had been "catfished." Did research online on the subject and sure enough my situation almost fit the scams to a tee and all the "red flags" that I should have seen had been present but I just did not recognize them as such. Tim clearly is one of the best actors I have ever known...very convincing both on phone and in emails and texts. I confronted Tim on phone that night and of course he denied it in a roundabout way and tried to turn it back on me and that I was the bad guy email from him after that had very different tone but still included one final request for money to help him out of his "situation" (not even continuing the jail farce at this point) which of course I denied easily since I had no more cash to send him and that was the truth so my conscience was clear just in case I was the one who was in the more communication from him since. I have been emotionally raped by this man and defrauded of $46K in the process. I just pray that this report helps someone else from falling into his trap.

If I really stole 120,000 dollars from Mr. Woodhouse, I believe the police would care. Instead I have this nifty little letter stating that I did not do anything of the sort. Nye Woodhouse is only trying to Fling mud to make himself look better. Ah. Come September, he will be in the custody of the federal department of immigration. As will his "wife". Toodles. I can't get the picture to upload. I'll try again.

Take care honey Virgin Atlantic Cargo Limited Phuket International Airport Thailand Dear Value Customer Madam, we are since this evening dragging with the State Security Service (SSS), over the luggage, it wasnt easy because of the hard currency they said the cash in the luggage was meant for the supporting of terrorist at South East Asia, but we said no that its for your business, you want to invest the money in your business there in the Philippines They said since the terrorism was Global fight now since few years every airport is security tight, they charged for ANTI-TERRORIST CERTIFICATE, which covers the cash in the luggage as it will not be tagged as money meant for terrorism, they directed us to go to Police head office here for the certificate and when we made enquiries about that, the Police head officer said they can issue the anti-terrorist Certificate but the price is $9000 (Nine Thousand Dollars) this is the stage we found this evening, when we was dragging with them and scolding them, we fight them for all the frustration the put us through, their main officer and some airport top security officers has to force the luggage open as we are arguing with them so that our delivery agent can board flight to Philippines to deliver your luggage, see the attachment they forced the luggage open to show us the content, the hard currency in the luggage, But nothing was removed from your luggage because no body has right to take anything out of your luggage everything was intact even other items was covered with the cash in the luggage, I manage to snap the luggage with my phone, but dont worry yourself, the issue is that, you have to inform the sender regarding the amount for ANTI-TERRORIST CERTIFICATE, you have to inform the sender as well, we are trying to protect you as well and hope this will be solved soon, send the payment to: MARIAMA CAMARA.

Just because you delete photos from Facebook doesn't mean that there is not a trail of them. The US government has already seen both of your Facebooks and immigration has been watching you guys for months. Sorry but your last trip kind of screwed you. All I asked was to be left alone after I found out that your fake husband lied to me about my deceased mother. Of course I'm going to cooperate with a government agency. They had way more pictures of you and Mr. Delcid together then I could have ever dreamed of having. Hell. They even have some of you and your boyfriend that you probably don't even know they have because they have been watching you for months. Also, I was told today that your business is illegal. So have fun with all of that. I don't care what lies he told you, I asked to be left alone and there was no reason at all that I shouldn't have been. You screwed up getting the wrong American citizen getc you a greencard. How do you think everyone knows about your fake marriage? Alcoholic Nye posted it to Facebook one day. Along with your texts. Since you are both so stupid and post your significant other on Facebook, it was really easy for them to catch you. Cecilia turned you both in as part of her plea deal. She gave them my info even though I don't know her. At all. I would have told them I knew nothing if it wouldn't have been for all of the lies and harassment. I just want it to stop. Every single day you people call me. It's just more harassment. Do you think you are scaring me away from talking to the authorities? I have nothing to hide. But thanks. It's nice to know you are thinking of me. Constantly.

Oh honey. You are so mislead. Too bad CiCi turned you into immigration and had them contact me. Should probably tell you fake husband to knock his shit off. As we have all seen, you are the only one in any kind of scam. Fling mud all you want, but I can walk into a police station and not worry about anything because I have done nothing wrong. I know Nye lied to you, but having your father and fiance, Delcid Contreras harass me, along with yourself is going to stop now. I will be meeting with USCIS in the next month or so again. Before then, you'll have them at both of your doors. You know. Because you don't live with your "husband". This site is set up to where you don't have to prove anything to post. Don't worry. Going back to Cuba won't be so bad. It's the prison time that's going to suck. The police are now investigating you, your father, your fiance (declid) and Greencard husband Nye for those. Stop calling my phone and job daily. I don't need anymore evidence of threats and harassment. I have plenty.


Jul 21, 2016 1:20 AM

Fuck you bitch. I have important things than to be worried of. A thief. Thats. All over the news. As a thief. Of pills. And a big fraud. Of. Stealing peoples money by internet. U have a dirty backgroud and. If i was you i will be quiet. I dont have tine to deal with.a. scumbag as you. . i will contact. This page. To have you suspended. They can not have. Scam artist. Like you here . who dont even have a job.

Jul 21, 2016 1:15 AM

Cat got your tongue? Stop fucking with my life. I know you and Delcid run an illegal business. You are in a sham marriage and you probably should stop harassing people that you know nothing about. I do not care what mr. Woodhouse told you. I'm tired of this shit. Immigration will be in contact with you very soon. (If they haven't already )

Learn to speak proper English. Well, it won't matter because immigration has been watching you two for months. Fred Nye Woodhouse lives in Deerfield Beach and he is very single. You live with Delcid Contreras in Hallandale. Why no pictures with your husband, Fred Nye Woodhouse? Oh yeah. That's right. Because you paid him 10,000 to marry you. Immigration knows this. Fred told me he knew my deceased mother and lured me into a friendship based on that. I asked him to leave me alone after finding out he had never once talked to my deceased mother. Immigration contacted me 9 months ago. I ignored it at first, but after the constant lies and harassment by you, your legal husband (for green card purposes) and Delcid (your actual fiance), I finally told them all they wanted to know. Please. Contact an attorney. You'll be needing one. Fred will be going to prison, as will you, then you'll be deported. When I found out he never knew my mother and asked him to get out of my life, this is what happened. Constant harassment by all of you and intercoastal electric. Let's post a few pictures here and see if anyone believes Fred Nye Woodhouse is your actual husband. The department of immigration is not as stupid as you two. Oh. My attorney says Fred "Nye" Woodhouses sisters name is Tara. So I imagine the sister in law you speak of is Delcids. Stay out of my life. I'll be suing you both as well. I have all the threats saved. I know Fred fed you lies, but we both know your marriage is a sham, as does immigration.

Mr. Woodhouse tried to convince the police of his bs story. They investigated and I was cleared of any wrong doing. Zero criminal activity. See where it states "NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED "? It's because Mr. Woodhouse concocted this story after I found out he lied about my dead mother just to talk to me. He continuously harassed myself and everyone I know. I am currently filing suit against him and the company who employs him, Intercoastal Electric, as they have perpetuated the harassment. Thanks for taking the time to read!

Nye Woodhouse posted a fake complaint against me. He is absolutely insane. He lied about knowing my dead mother to lure me into a friendship. When I learned he had never spoken to my mother and was married ILLEGALLY to an immigrant named Ingrid JaRa, I tried to cut him out of my life. He has not stopped. His sham marriage is being investigated by USCIS and Immigration. Himself, as well as his employer, are currently being sued for harassment. He is also facing a slew of felony charges, ranging from threats and intimidation to impersonating an officer. The 5 to 10 years he will get for his obvious sham marriage should kick him out of my life. In the meantime, thanks for the ammunition for court! :) (the picture of is FRED NYE WOODHOUSES "WIFE" Ingrid JaRa with her fiancé! The department of immigration really loves idiots like these two!

I guess it is well known here, but 95% of the Russian/Ukrainian dating industry is a scam. It is basically a scam industry. So many men are losing their money and hearts. I logged a complaint here against Hotrussianbrides.
