Image of cupid and heartNot everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? They’re looking to steal your money.

As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims. After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account. The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime.  

Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. They ask you to:

  • chat off of the dating site immediately, using personal email, text, or phone
  • wire money using Western Union or Money Gram
  • set up a new bank account

Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.

Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason. If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.

Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at ftc.gov/complaint — click on Scams and Rip-Offs, then select Romance Scams.

I believe I met the same guy as you who also named Matt Spencer who has similar look as you described but he told me his photo was just taken early this year and he is a American. His father is polish american and his mother is Singapore american. both of them have died years ago and he lost his wife to cancer. Really nice good looking guy but believe the pictures were stolen.

Desperate for help!!! All these are so familiar!! My mother is living. With me over a former catfishing scam, now she’s involved again by the name of a man called “Ruppe” and she won’t believe me that this is another scam. She’s giving him amazon, iTunes, wiring him money to he bank of Nigeria and it’s going to CA and being received by a woman of the name Cynthia Punogin who lives in Palmdale CA. I have confronted her and told her all the red flags. He’s claiming to be military and deployed for many years, injured and stitched up. Captured by terrorists. Met on tinder now on what’s app. Impossible!! Every single red flag is there. Horrible English and he copies and pastes poems too. I have done so much research on him and she even believes they’re married. HWP I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. She is brainwashed and we all fear for our safety at this point since he has pics of us and my grandchildren. Also our home address. I need guidance and where to go with all the acct numbers I have now and his what’s app number too!!!

If you think someone wired money to a scammer, you can call the Western Union Fraud Hotline at 800-448-1492 or the MoneyGram Customer Care Center at 1‑800‑926‑9400.  Some local police and sheriff's offices have  officers or trained volunteers who talk with people about scams. You could call your local law enforcement agency and ask if there's someone who could visit or talk with your mom about her experience.

Please let your mother know that if she receives stolen money from a scammer and then transfers it to another account, or wires it to someone, her name is on the bank account and on the money transfer forms. If she is involved with this scheme, she could lose money and personal information. She could get into legal trouble. Her bank might close her account.

I too have been messaging Joey Allan. Nice pics. Said he was a captain in the military stationed in Syria. Widowed and had not been home in 15 months. Sounded really said and burnt out. Within in a day he was madly in love. On the second day wanted to come meet me in person but needed money to buy a pane ticket.With my grandson in the Army and Dad serving 25 years, I know a little about how the military works. They don't keep you overseas without a break and they don't ask you to buy your own ticket. Ladies I knew it was a scam but played long for a few days to see if I could catch something to call him out on.Did on a few things Kept him busy until facebook shut him down. Now I am sweeping my computer for viruses to be safe. Ladies, none falls in love on line in 2 days. Don't fall for it. And if they ask for money report it.

It's a scam! He's a millionaire but he needs your money?! Please !! Any millionaire is going to have access to their money at all times, even from a ship. Has he heard of the age of technology or does he just think you're that stupid? Never give money to a man, especially one you've never met in person. Even then, just go by the rule to never give money to a man. The story is classic, wife is dead, kid in boarding school, yada yada yada. The stories are all the same! Plus, Braytan Willex? Really? Even the name is quite obviously made up. My friend was taken to the tune of $60,000 by man she actually met and lived with who was promising the same thing, to pay all her bills and she'd never have to work again. They play on your emotions and make empty promises to get what they can out of you. Tell him you aren't sending him money ever and see how quickly he disappears.

Be careful of scammers who say they work in the oil rig and claims they are not allowed to have cell phones in their rooms. That is not true. If you tell them you want to skype or meet on webcam, they come up with excuses that they're not allowed to have cell phones on the rig. That is not true. They'll say they are engineers but are so bad in english grammar and spelling. They say they are in the ship but you can hear roosters crowing on the background. They profess love only after one week. And there are two ways that they will divest you of your money: First is to wire some money, second, they'll ask you to receive a bag or a package and then a company will ask you to pay for taxes or blackmail that the bag contains cash and you are charged with money laundering so you have to pay a lot of money. DO NOT EVER GIVE MONEY TO A PERSON YOU'VE NEVER MET. DO NOT RECEIVE ANY PACKAGE OR BAG FROM A PERSON YOU'VE NEVER MET. This scammer said he would send his bag first before he goes to the country, who does that? When you travel, you travel with your bag with you. Be careful of the copy-paste love messages on Google. If you go online dating, make sure you see them on webcam, and never, ever give money.

Father in-law is being scammed by a woman who says her name is Donna Buchnan. He was already scammed once. He is being told that "Donna" works as a consultant in a diamond mine in South Africa. Just as she is about to board the plane to come back to Arizona she collapses and now is in the hospital. How does he know..because get this a doctor sends him text message because he found his name in a book on her. How do you convince someone like this to believe you. This is the second time he has gotten scammed the first time they got 10k from him. He is in his 70's and a lonely widow. I notice most notices on here are men scamming women. Any men being scammed by "women" stories similar to this?

I'm talking to one right now on messenger on purpose because my husband's mother ended up giving in to one of these sorry piece of crap scammers last month and lost all of her money! The scammer had her let him transfer a $10,000 amount to her bank account and then she had to send it back to him and it withdrew her account negative $9,000 is she only had $1,000 in the account! And she still talking to the guy! The guy I'm talking to on messenger I know he's a scammer I'm married and have no reason to talk to guys on social media but I wanted to talk to this guy and just see what kind of format they use. He's currently posing as Lieutenant General Franklin Benjamin Hodges.

Well ladies I’m one of the suckers! My guy has been talking to me for 3 months. He is from Oakland, CA, but he has been in Istanbul on an oil rig for over a month. We have all of the sweet romantic conversations as the rest of you. He friend requested me on Messenger and why I accepted I will never know. His name is Jimmie Walter. He is getting a divorce and he has a 14 year daughter. He asked for a IPhone X after I told him I wanted to get him something for his birthday. I never sent it because I fell ill and was unable to do so. He has continued talking to me and now wants to send a package of his to my address. He says he is coming home soon and wants to meet me in CA. I a pretty intelligent woman and he almost convinced he is real. He sent a passport and a drivers license with the number covered. I have done extensive searches and have not found him in the US. I have figured out that he is a scammer and I want all you ladies out there to wise up like I have. If the guy is a contractor, in the military, has broken language, speaks brogue English, works in another country, and wants to get romantic immediately he is a SCAMMER! We are too smart to be scammed, so block them and delete anything they’ve sent you. Women United.

Oh my, my story is similar to all of you posting here. My I was talking to Richie Lambert, 55 on July 29. Born in Italy, now living in Virgina. Claims to be engineer and just got $100 million project with BP Oil based in Aberdeen, Scotland. One daughter Kim she 12 lives in New York with wicked aunt. He plans to retire as siinashecan get paid $1 million from BP. He wants me to get package but I need to send $30,000 for customs and immigration costs. His supposed daughter text me and as did a supposed guy from BP who was suppose to be agent sending money for him. I lost my heart with all the wonderful things he said. It was everything I wanted to hear. Don’t fall for this guy. Fortunate it only cost me $100 to to the point I figured out he was scamming me. First I didn’t have $30,000 to give away and I have very suspicious from the start. He got hurt when I tried questioning about motives. STOP!!! Don’t fall for his scam.

I was friend requested by a man named Phillip Liam on FB. He asked me to contact him on Hangouts. I just blocked him there because I believe he's a fake. He blocked me on FB after we started "chatting" on Hangouts. His English typing is odd. He's never asked me for money. He sent me a photo of him in a suit standing in front of an expensive looking sports car. When I asked him what kind of car it was he said a Zenvo. I googled it and it's a 1.8 million dollar car. He got angry that I mentioned it and asked why I was "digging" which makes no sense since no one who wants to get to know you would react like that. He claims he is from San Francisco, his wife died of cancer a year and a half ago, he has ac15 year old son named Jessie in school in Canada, and his parents were killed in a plane crash when he was a child. I had been scammed recently and this sounds like the same thing! I don't know what this guy's game is since he has not asked me for money. He claims to get off the ship in two months. I blocked him on Hangouts and reported his FB profile page. In just posting this in case others have been contacted. My gut says trouble!

Ladies, I have been talking to 3 different guys I met on line. Same site. One is stationed in Syria, one claims to be in the CIA, and the 3rd is a contractor working on an oil rig. Guy #1 is amazing cute, he is 52 and has a 10 year old daughter. He claims he is retiring this month, first it was July 1st, then he said it would be the 8th he said he has orders to go on mission, he then tells me it will be the 15th due to mission had been pushed, he has asked for cell phones so he can sell them to come home He was then coming home on Friday the 20th but now his mission I'd back on. He promises to be home on the 22nd. I feel after reading all of your comments he is a scammer. Guy number 2 went to Afghanistan on the request of the president. He text me after a week and said he room was ransacked and his camera was taken and he needed 10,000$ for a camera, when I told him I didn't have it he got mad. Then about 2 weeks after that he said that they kept changing his come home date he was there on his own and needed money so he come home. I stopped.talking to me. So after that about 2 weeks ago he asked if I could sent him more ey for a plain ticket. I did not reply. I haven't heard from him since. Then #3 is in the water on an oil rig near Florida. At first it was he had to borrow money from a friend because his card would not work. I explained to him then I lived paycheck to paycheck. The next red flag was can you send a 50$ iTune card to his son in UK where he is in boarding school. Now he asks every day for me to get him money because his diving mask malfunction and he needs 2,200$ to get a new one. I told him I did not have it. Now it's if you give a friend 200$ he will then help him get the mask. He has even told me to his son an iTunes card again. Oh yea 3 days ago he asked me to sell my car. I am divorced and making payments on it. He then got upset and know not calling me.

I know someone who met a guy online and quickly it became a romance with plans to be together forever. They have never met in person. The guy says he is basically a mercenary (former Special Ops) and is sent around the world for undercover security jobs. He is paid in cash, under the table. He is sending money to my friend, for my friend to send to Nigeria. This makes no sense to me. Is this a scam? Or is it a set up for a different type of scam in the future?

FTC Staff

In reply to by Is this fraud?

Some scammers use people to help them transfer stolen money. They don't reveal that the money is stolen - they tell a story to hide the purpose for the transaction. They meet people online, create a relationship, and ask their new sweetheart to use her bank account to receive and transfer money.

If you do this for a scammer, your name is on the bank account and on the money transfer forms. If you get involved with one of these schemes, you could lose money and personal information, and you could get into legal trouble.

Other scammers send fake checks to their new friends. They ask the friend to deposit the check, and then quickly transfer funds overseas. It can take days for the bank to find out a check is fake. If you transfer money before the bank has fully cleared the check, you can lose money. If the bank finds out the check was fake after you sent the money, you must repay the bank all the money you sent.

It is really disturbing to read all this and what people are doing out their, preying on people's hearts for a little money. I almost fell for it...the heart part....until I asked him about what music he likes to listen to and he gave me the whole story of not being able to buy iTunes in The Gulf of Mexico. So here is his profile (but it will change daily).....Met him on Words with friends. Convinced me to move to hangout....some weird excuse about being in the Gulf. Hangout screen name is "Special Man".....his email address is Rogerbecker990 @ gmail.com. But that can all change as we know. Gave me some story about having to communicate on hangouts because he would be able to use to use WWF shortly....whatever. Pic was probably early to mid 40's, although we all know it is not him...but salt and pepper short hair, goatee. Brown eyes. Stated he was born in Germany, father died when he was 7 in military war, mother died when he was 13. He was raised by his neighbour, a teacher. Stories will also change pending on audience. Claimed he was 54, as he was figuring out my age. Pic did not match that age. Still was playing along soaking up the attention, being naive. "Honey, baby, dear, I love you".....no 54 year old man would be saying that, that quickly.....1st day of communicating. Still played along. Then when I asked him about what music he likes on day 2, he gave me the whole iTunes spiel and would not give up...asking me to buy him $400 worth of iTunes cards. That was it. Some other red flags.....repeated word for word texts. Would say "like I said"....but didn't say previously to me. Once the iTunes card would stop...Of course I stopped there, not doing that. And I am not done. I know lots of people including Cesis, law enforcement and government. I will do anything to try and stop these guys on preying on women. Even if I can stop this one! Be aware! Never ever give money or gift cards to anyone you don't really know, unless it is a charity or something legit you have approached!

Watch out for a guy named Scott Richmond. Met him on Twitter but then started talking to him on Hangouts. He said he was an engineer with ExxonMobil. Lived in Washington DC. Is a widowed father of two boys Nelson and Todd. He says he's 67. In his pictures he has white hair and sometimes wears glasses. I think he drives a newer white f150 and lives in Washington DC. He says he's currently in China on an oil rig last time we talked. He says his equipment broke so he needs 10,000 for new drill plate. Before he left for China he was asking for money constantly to cover cost of hiring workers to go to China with him. He says he's madly in love with you. Doesn't care if you're married. He calls you baby dear and sweetheart. He acts like he's very financially stable. He supposedly just got some really lucrative engineer oil rig contract in China. He was suppose to be there month and 2 weeks. This guy is a charmer up until you tell him you won't give him money. Then he's mean selfish and doesn't care about your well being. I deleted my Twitter acct but I blocked him on Hangouts, which has used several times a day. Probably talking to new victims. I never gave him money bank acts etc. So he must've gave up on me bc he basically stopped messaging me.

So pleased I found this page.. have this doctor Robdavid500 following me on Instagram for about 6 weeks now. So handsome. Has little girl 12 year old in boarding school in America so he said first of all. He wanted to start messaging via hangouts. Said such nice things and asking me for face pictures. He is working for UN as surgeon in Iraq on Contract. He asked for money to be sent via money gram to his daughters teacher as his daughter had been overspending but gave some address in Nigeria !! Alarm bells straight away. He said he wanted to leave Iraq but needed money to buy out of Contract. He said his full name is Doctor Robert Lawrence Jones. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Yes he too seems to follow many women on Instagram.

I get at least one a week contacting me through words with friends. They are so predictable! Works for either the UN or NATO as a Doctor or Consultant/surgeon on peace keeping missions in Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq. Alternatively they are oil engineers working offshore or some remote place! All are single parents with children living abroad, boarding schools! They use words of endearment such as my dear (really winds me up!), lots of compliments and proverbs about friendship and love! Usually ask you to go on hangout or request your email address! English is poor and I have asked whether English is their second language. Sometimes they admit they are and say they speak a European language. I had one who said he was German so I started writing messages in German. He then admits he can't speak German and left there as a child! What a crock...........! 2 questions 1. Do you give people so much information about yourself in the first five minutes of knowing them 2. Do you speak to strangers using terms of endearment? If the answer is NO then you are dealing with a scammer. They are trying to pull on your heart strings and gain your trust quickly. Don't fall for it! 2 bits of advice 1. Don't give them your email or engage with them on another forum 2. Report them as impersonators on whatever online site you are on. Don't let them get away with it! They really pee me off and sometimes I play along to waste their time....... whilst they are talking to me they can't be bothering someone else.

He hasn’t asked me for money yet, but I found it weird he sent me a pic with her daughter 6 years old and she looked older, at least he writes better than the other scammer I found. He told me he is in the Navy.

mine went by Leo on a oil rig and his daugther was 15 in the UK and he was from Australia and he got iTunes. Then he went for the big money and I said no here comes you don't love me . It was too late for me he got me on the tunes.

En agosto 2021 me hizo contacto vía instagram un impostor con una cuenta falsa @doc_richard_garry que resultó ser de la cuenta real @themaercksinstitute Para que estén atenta porque la historia es exacta a muchas que he leído por acá y esta página me sirvió para no seguir el juego del impostor y los nombres y referencias reales que aquí comento, pueden servir a próximas víctimas que googleen para no dejarse estafar. Se hace pasar por un hombre viudo, su esposa muere de cáncer, con una hija de 9 años de nombre Emily, sin padres y único hijo, con una fortuna inmensa; colección de autos deportivos, departamentos de playa, etc. No caí más que en sus conversaciones y comencé a indagar y ya está bloqueado, por cierto su número celular es +1 (512) 7665326 y dice estar en Afganistán en una misión por ser médico adscrito a las fuerzas militares de USA.
