He said that he has brothers and sister, his mom worked for United Nations, has some issues with his father and both parents in US, while he's alone in UK. He's a very strong Crhistian, and doing some business too, to make more money.
he tried to allure me with love stuff, but it didn't worked. so he tried to offer me some chance to sell some iphones in my country. 70 units of tem. and from there, he worked his magic, succesfully made me sent my savings to him in Malaysia. said that he has to work in Brazil, so he cant send any money to malaysia, cos the parcel (full of 70 unit Iphones 4G) get stucked in the airport.
at the time here's some more pics he sent to my email, to makes me send more money. I was playing with him a bit, at the time I have my brother and my sister watched his move, we'd lke to know how far he will go for this, and these are some more pics he sent:
I sent them my savings, and they asked more (tripple than before) the next day, and thats when I knew I've been scammed. Until now, he stil trying to get more of me, but I blocked his profile in FB and in my yahoo mail.
I learned the hard way, and up til now, I'm still trying to recover from my loss of all of my savings.
so I write this, hoping nobody will get hurt again.
it wasn't easy, but I'm here.
Thanks for marisa and friends, for all of ur info, give me a big relieve, taht one lesson has learned. take care all.

Today I got a letter Myspace inbox from Greg Drew: (He does not delete photos right side inscription: Newfaces.com - It is a model agency) Greg Drew male/age 47 Hi.. My Name is Greg Drew, from Chicago Illinois-USA. Am 48 years old single male who loves life as I strongly believe that age is but a number because true love evolves from inside. Am here to find love and I can tell you, I like what I see and feel we can go into this. Feel free to get in touch with me via email only, so that we can chat and share some thoughts. Please Send your reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to your email. Love,Greg
Greg Drew sent his message to my e-mail:
Thanks for your reply via Myspace. This is to confirm your email address . Like I told you,My Name is Greg Drew. Am from Chicago Illinois.-USA. Am here to find love because I believe in Love.... I have been out for long in the wilderness of love and now I feel I can start living again. I want to explore this relationship with you. Am currently working with an offshore oil/gas drilling company. I look forward to starting a good relationship with you. Age to me is just a number as true love comes without any inhibition. Infact you have made my day. As I told you, I have been out of love for long after I lost my wife 3 years ago to cancer. Recently it occurred to me that I need to move on with life and having come in contact with you, I believe it is God ordained. I am a Christian and I believe we will have a very good and mutual relationship. My Job takes me to different parts of the world.I plan to retire from my present work as soon as we are through with the present job, so that I can have time to settle down. I am ready to come and meet you anytime as soon as you give me the green light and to assure you I mean well. In fact I believe time has come for me to go on with life after loosing my wife. I dont think distance (for the little time am away) will be any barrier to our love because I promise to always be there for you. Just give me the chance to love you and show same to me. I am not saying am perfect but I will always try to be the best for you. I want you in my mornings as the flowers need the sun to open up their petals. I want you in my afternoon, for afternoon delites an erotic morsel of chocolate needs warmth to satisfy the tiny taste buds gliding its way down to awaken every sensual fiber of my soul. I want you in my nites to flavor and quench ever parched and thirsty sexual desire lingering and longing to come forth from your beautiful imagination of delicate romance. To wrap myself around you and whisper the depths of my love. So what kind of job do you do and your hobbies too. Am waiting for your reply. Here are my pics, love to have yours too. I have added you so we can chat anytime. With all My Heart,Greg And his photos:
Here is his IP address: From: Greg Drew <email@example.com> Received: from [22.214.171.124]- Nigeria,Lagos!!!
Hello Everyone: I am new to this site & am actually posting because a friend of mine has been in contact with a potential scammer from Nigeria. "Joe Wade" a white Russian looking man approached my friend on Facebook. He has worked on her for almost 2 months & promised her the world. He did ask her for money twice & when she said she could not help him & gave him alternative ways to sort out his alleged money issues he would disappear for a few days & then resurface. He says he is of Russian ancestry living in the UK & in Lagos, Nigeria building a gas station.....his wife is dead & his only relative is his poor mother back in Russia. He has not divulged the Hotel he is staying in or his home address in UK. The company he says is his does not exist. I have traced all his emails back to Lagos & Oshodi, Nigeria...I even found the streets & there is no gas station being built in either location. I have told my friend over & over again he is not the handsome blonde gray eyed Russian man she thinks she is looking at; just a pathetic Nigerian guy who couldn't care less about her. He actually booked a ticket online which we were able to track. He did NOT pay for it so the reservation expired & he did not contact my friend for 2 days....when he came back online to her he said a bunch of black guys came to his work site & beat up the workers & stole building supplies. He said the police got them; then he said they got away. He said it happened yesterday & then he said it happened 2 days ago. He got angry at my friend when she asked why he didn't pay for the ticket. He said he could rebook anytime & she needs to be patient...then he suddenly disappeared offline. I also found out his email addy is actually a Domain name: JoeWade960@yahoo.com. I wish I could get my friend to believe this guy is not for real. I have tried the reverse image search & Tineye & not gotten any matches...If anyone has had any contact with this person I would greatly appreciate the information...He is no longer listed on Facebook but that doesn't mean he isn't out ther still. Thank you for your time.
