Zoosk Dating Site... contacted me by chat... pretending to be a person he wasn't.
Hot Springs National Park Arkansas
Meet when he returned from his business trip...
A few phone calls
Then google hangouts chat
Sent pictures... all had a story
Made me believe when I'd ask for a selfie he wound send a picture as if he was saying hello.
I fell for story concerning the business trip to Spain.
He began having financial problems.
Short on supplies
Short on duty
Needed funds for warehouse as Spains warehouses were owned by an association but in Aisa government owns so no cost to warehouse only to move container and that's where he normally conducted his business so he hadn't budged for the additional expenses.
Six months before I realized and accepted it was a scam ...
after funds were sent.
Lies, everything all lies.
I know now more than one person was involved. Possibly an international ring.
"Autobond Mechanical Shipping".
Has a linked in profile.
No pictures and few followers.
Has also set up 2nd linked in profile same name but in different area.
I reported to linked in but nobody ever replies back..?
Using a very handsome man's pictures. I feel pictures and actual man - his ID has been stolen.
Reason scammers didn't have more pictures to send and kept telling me his camera was broke on phone..?!!!!
I even received documents backing up his story to make me believe it was true and someone speaking with a beautiful Spanish accent called me to confirm documents pretending to be a CEO of BBVA... nope!
I reported to dating site... no help
I reported to FBI... I haven't heard from agency but called an area one and spoke with a gentleman.
He explained they may or may not get back with me. That I might have given enough info agency can put together with other information to bust ring.
I sent information to a place in Ghana and probably blew their mind. Only heard back once by email but nothing since.
I've search scam sites and haven't found pictures.
I know you are not supposed to give funds to people you don't know and I never thought I would but I did. I totally became caught up in the whole story.
Soft hearted here believed the entire story for a long time.
I can't begin to tell you what this has done to me.
I pray no one else falls for scammers lies... so that's why I have posted comments in various places to help others.
One day I'll be back on my feet and my plan will be to find out who did this to me...
I also plan to find the real man in the pictures so I can have closure. That may or may not happen but as soon as I can I'll do my best to make it happen...
I actually haven't been angry I've been hurt but that's beginning to change...
Ryan Watt - a name on an email supposed to be a business associate... [email protected]
Suppliers name in Spain
Company receiving amount for duty he was short...
Ingens Company Ltd.
Western Union Agent
Western Union Agent
Samuel last name starts with a "K"..?
Staying in Madrid Spain but driving 5 hours away to a port.
Warehouse even in another area of Spain.
Lies about getting warehouse amount down because he knew he couldn't get original amount from me but was still trying to get what he could from me.
Just to stay in touch I made "it " believe I still didn't know for a while... now I chat with "it " to tell him I need my money back but it's also to see if "it's" been online and whoever " it " is IS active so I know they are busy scamming someone else.
I was hoping FBI would contact me and take over my phone to see if they could pin point where chats are coming from for sure and stop them.
I have no one to blame but myself.
I still looking back now can't believe I fell for the story but when I spoke with a dective he explained how scammers are trained and many have "bosses" they report to and how they are coached to get into you mentally.
It's actually a huge business and the more you send they more they ask for. They are heartless people and there's always a reason why they need more.
There's more to this story but this is the most of it. I actually met two nice gentleman who were who they said they were, lived where they said they did and did for a living what they said they did but I had decided date site wasn't for me so I was going to get off. While in process of deactivating my account is when I saw Kenneth's chat request answered it and now wishing I hadn't.

Alan Crouch approached me on facebook. We started messaging, then texting, and talking over the phone. We eventually went to texting and calling on WhatsApp, and now currently on viber. He claimed to be an individual engineer who did consulting work. I sent him money, apple cards with money on them, new cell phones, laptop, jewelry. I have pictures and receipts of everything. Including pictures of himself and his daughter. His daughter recently emailed me cause I would not send 50k. I don't know the total amount of money sent probably close to if not more than over 300, 000.00. He claims to be in Johannesburg, South Africa but lives in Dallas, Texas. He claims to have a house in San Francisco, California and New York. He had a fraudulent check sent to me which ruined my reputation with my bank at Capital One where I have my accounts on hold. I have sent money to Julie Ann Tibbit in California to her bank account at Bank of America. I have also wired money to Cap Town, South Africa. His daughter, Shirley Crouch. I have tons of pictures, receipts, and emails.Show more
