I was also contacted by Steven Harris on zoosk.com but it took me two weeks to realized it was a scam. I asked God for guidance because i was already falling for the guy in the picture and hoping it was real, but i had my doubts in my mind. But thank God I found this website, it has been very helpful... I just can't believe i have found the same pictures that organization has been sending me. I'm sure the poor guy is also a victim. I keep wondering how and where they might have taken those pictures. I'm sure the guy in the picture probably know by now his pictures are an online hit. His phone # is 720-446-6072 and his international line in Nigeria is 234-810-188-5113 his email is email@example.com
, and I will post here some of the emails he has been sending me.
He takes and combines a lot of the words I used on my profile to make it look very personal and a match to me.
I put the faces on so you can find it easier to read through...PLEASE READ THE EMAILS I'M POSTING HERE
I DID NOT SEND HIM ANY MONEY!!! AND IF THIS EMAILS LOOK FAMILIAR TO YOU, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY.

I like your name)
How are you doing and how is your weekend Going, Thanks so much for the message and for telling me more about you, I really enjoy your message and its a change from the other mails i have been getting from women on zoosk. I agree with what you have to say about living life everyday like its your last. I am so sorry to hear about your dad. To answer your question My mom is an African Residence, Shes British African and she moved back to Africa when my dad passed away i was 3 then so i spent most of my growing up years in Africa and that makes me have an accent. So i am a mixture of British, African and American. I am planning to be back to Denver as soon as my mom gets better. I will like to tell you more about me.. I consider myself to be very simple. I believe that women needs to be treated with respect and as a equal partner in a relationship, but all I seem to find is the ones that does not know how to respond to that or is entrusting to it. I feel like u should treat somebody with respect and like they are a person not a piece of meat or whatever. I am the type of person who wants somebody to feel wanted not just as a trophy. I am a very affectionate person and I love to cuddle, I like to show somebody how I feel not just telling them. I love to be close to somebody whether it is in the bed on the couch or wherever.I guess I want to work on my love life and be happy first.but I guess when the time is right it will happen.
I like to play sports just as much as I do watching them. Most of all i like to spend time with who I am with, and cuddle up and watch a movie. It is my opinion that we all want the same thing in regards to a partner, and that most of us either do not know how or is scared to and sabotage themselves from getting it. Ok, I like the outdoors, but I don't care about hunting or fishing, well I will fish with an un-baited hook if it means I will get to spend some time with someone I care about.
There are a lot of things I like doing as in dancing, cooking, camping, etc.... My ultimate goal and what I think would make me happy is to get back on my feet and have a woman by my side that I love and loves me.
I am very relationship oriented and I believe life is too short to waste.. When I am in a relationship I am committed, honest, and loyal. I think that falling in love is always a good thing, even if it doesn't work out. There is always something to learn from being with someone, and happy times and memories should be cherished. Friendship comes first for me. That is not to say I never get hurt because I do. I have been burnt so bad. My last relationship ended on a very sad note for me but I do not believe in regrets. I tell you this because I cannot predict the future. For some people a relationship has to be all or nothing....I don't feel that way.
It is obvious that I don't know how to keep a good woman since I am 39 and never married, but I never in the past nor do I intend to intentionally hurt someone by cheating, mistreating, or abusing them. Ok, for my questions to you. What are some of your goals, hopes and dreams? If there is something you want to say but you think you might be rambling or it is not important, it is ok, to me it is important.. Well...I see I wrote a novel here, I am looking forward to getting to know you better.I guess I will go for now hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks so much for your message i am so happy to read from you again cause your message always makes me smile. I am glad to hear you had a nice weekend . I dont have a problem with you keeping your goals and and dreams confidential God willing we will get closer than this and you can share it with me by then. Yeah i have visited some of the places you mentioned. I have visited sea world and DisneyLand. I was Born in Denver CO but spent most of my growing up years in Africa cause my mom had to move back to Africa when dad passed away, i was 3 year old then. Yeah i have a mixed background, My mom is British African. What i mean by getting back on my feet is starting my own computer Store and repair shop cause that has been my dream. Yeah i am happy with what i do and i love my job, I am self employed, i am not attached to any company. I have an apartment in Denver. It was really nice living in Africa, I had fun growing up as a kid in Africa and have lot of experience that i will share with you when we meet. My favorite food to eat here is fried rice and chicken. Are you a good Cook?
I have something to share with you, its my theory on relationships. I have learn more about relationship..You see,I feel there are five very basic but essential elements of a relationship.They are also to a degree sequential. First is honesty and then respect.They go hand in hand and without them any type of relationship; business, personal, family, whatever, is doomed for failure.Anyone who is dishonest,can not be respected. Without showing respect, it is unlikely to be treated with honesty.Those are fundamental to trust which like respect is earned because honesty was first and was given.When trust is built and respect is earned and they are given and shared, then love will grow.When you love and trust where giving is more important than receiving then commitment becomes a part of the relationship.At that point, you promise and believe it will be forever.You can do this because you love and trust the other person and are committed to making a life to share together..This may sound silly to you,I don't know.But I really do believe it with all my heart and soul.
Now that I have danced all over the the floor,I will try to be more specific. First, no one is perfect, especially me.I know this though, when the right person or person that seems right comes into your life you will know it. A connection happens and you just can't, or won't let go of them. Your whole life changes and all of the emptiness begins to fill up. It starts with the first touch, the first time you look into each other's eyes, the very first time for everything becomes a moment to remember. Sometimes it happens quickly, other times it takes years. I don't pretend to have the wisdom to explain or understand. This is certain, if you are at all intelligent and conscious, if a person is wrong for you it is obvious. I truly believe it is easier to know if someone is not right for you than to know if some is.
The respect, the trust just will not happen. Just don't ever let infatuation or sexual appeal be mistaken for love.About the kind of woman i am looking for? well first she must be honest , open minded , willing to share thoughts and ideas ,a woman that will be there for me , believe in me , love me for who i am , care for me , be like a sister , friend , mother , and most of all a wonderful wife and mother of our kids , a woman that will stick with me through the storms of life and still tells me she loves me .A woman that will stick to the oath of for better for worse and till death do us part i am not saying i am looking for a perfect woman but the right woman . The more I communicate with you, the more fascinated I am becoming. I am very definitely interested. We are very definitely at a very early stage of a relationship and I don't expect any unreasonable commitments. I only ask that you be totally honest. I promise to do the same.
Respect my feelings and I will respect yours. I know we will not always agree on every viewpoint, but everyone is entitled to their own perspective. If you were to look at an animal, such as a horse from the front..You would see the soft nuzzle and beautiful eyes. If I were behind the horse, I would see a horse's ass.If we could trade perspectives, we would see life as it really is.But i have learn that relationships are very hard..People grow and change with time. people have their own minds, dreams and goals.To have a solid relationship the two people must commit to it. They must work at it and try to find the middle ground between them.People must be able to give and take and to trust that the relationship is what is most important. If a career, or a goal or a idea becomes more important then the relationship itself, then it will fail. The two people must nurture and care for the relationship like you would a flower. Feed it always , water it and help it grow with lots of love, attention and sunshine. I look for a friend, a companion, a sultry lover, and a woman who respects me as I do her.. I work hard and will work hard for the relationship.
Communication is necessary and most important no cheating or lying. Work through good and the bad.... I look for peace and harmony.The woman to share life with and know she cares for me and I can care for her.What you say is true love is a fragile issue , when you have it it takes hard work to keep it shining or else it will lose its glow ,people need to know it very well before jumping into it thats why their is a high rate of divorce this days there don't seem to be communication between partners about how they truly feel .Sometimes partners act very selfish and self centered that they don't carry the other lover along in what they do and it seems that they just shut the world out on them .I want a woman that can make me feel secure , a woman that wherever and whatever we go through her love will never change , a woman that without telling me with words i will see it in her eyes that she loves me.Here is a long novels from me...I will like to hear from you very soon...

How are you! You seem like you are very down to earth and laid back, and that is good. It's good to see you are affectionate and like showing your feelings. I am the same as well. I believe that partners are 100% equal in a relationship and both should be able to feel they can trust each other 100% at all times.. I am affectionate also and I have no trouble showing it for the right woman in public or private. I love to cuddle while watching a good movie, when were in bed, I love to hug and kiss my woman at anytime and anywhere it could be a store,mall or just on a sidewalk. You are looking for long term, I am looking for something permanent
and I know it takes time and a lot of good effort to form a good relationship. I want a woman to be my best friend at all times, my sweetheart, love of my life, my partner and my soul mate all wrapped up into one lovely woman. I would be all of that for her and more,I would love her with all of my heart and have nothing but good feelings for her. She should be a very caring person, with a lot of good feelings, be honest, reliable,pleasant personality and have a sense of humor.
I am trying not to ramble here for you but I am looking for the "One". What does that mean to me? She is the person that you can't wait until she comes home from work so you can kiss her and sit down and relax in front of the TV or go out and spend an evening together. The person that just calls to see how your day is going but knows that it just got much better because you are talking to each other.she gives you a lift when you are down and can always make you laugh because you know each other so well. The person that can simply lay in bed with her head on my chest and our legs interlocked for hours and talk about what's on your mind.She will be my best friend, my lover, my equal and if lucky my wife and mother of my children. If I didn't scare you by being so serious and this sounds like something that would interest you then we could probably hit it off if you are up for it. I'm not afraid to go for it and this is what I want from life because I deserve the best. I am opening up to you because I read what you had to say and I think you could be the best. You have high standards and that's usually because you expect to get what you give from a relationship.This is almost a page long already. I feel that we have broken the ice and have found some very common grounds between us.
Thanks, hope to hear from you.

Thanks so much for the message i am so happy to read from you and all i could say is wow after reading your message u left me speechless. You have really put a big smile to my face with this email. I feel we might be molded for each other too cause o have never felt the way i am feeling for you for any woman before. I wish you could cuddle and kiss me all over.
I like your own theory about a weak relationship. I think you are right and i agree with it. I can see you write from your heart too and i really want to explore that inner part of you and see where this leads to. I dont consider myself a great writer. I really like you a lot and i think you might be that woman i have been waiting for all my 39 years of living. I want to let you know that you have been all I can think about. Is this really happening to me?? Could I have found my true love in you? Well baby, I pray so because you have opened up a part of my heart that will not let you go. You are so special to me and I can only pray that you feel the same way. I know that once we are together we can start building a stronger foundation for what we now share. I want us to grow and learn from one another and always keep God first. If we do that then I know He will bless us and our relationship. I want someone to grow old with.
I am looking for that lifetime love that lasts always and I want to share that with you. I believe that we can make this work because our feelings are already strong and we have yet to meet face to face. I am a very giving person and I plan to give you my all if you prove deserving of it and I feel that you are. So baby let's take this thing to the next level and prove to everyone that TRUE LOVE is not dead. I will do my best to make you happy and support you in everything you do. I want to be your best friend, your lover, your future Husband and the one you trust with your deepest secrets. I want you baby and know that I will always be there for you no matter what.

how are you doing and how is your day going? Thanks so much for answering the questions and for being honest with me. I want you to know that i already closed my zoosk account since we started talking and i will like you to do the same thing too. I don't think we both need it anymore cause we found what we were searching for in each other and our search is over. To answer your questions about my heritage. My Dad is pure white. Hes a Denver Native but my mom is Half African and half British so i will say it is my mom that i will say is the black one but she doesn't looks black though and for your question about the tattoo, I don't have any tattoo but i prefer tattoos to piercing but i am thinking about getting a tattoo in the future. I have never had any surgery done on me and i am not physically disable. Lol. I hope you like my answers and i will like you to answer the same questions too. I hope you have a wonderful day and i will be looking forward to reading from you again.

I'm so in love; I get this warm sensual feeling every time I think of you. When I sleep at night, all I can dream about is you. I wish I could hold you in my arms. I dream of the day when I could kiss you passionately on your soft sweet lips and listen to your heart beating because it's sweet music to my ears. All I can say is let me be the one you love; let me be the one whose love you need.
We completed one another; you thought that no good man existed and then you met me. How I long for you to know that the feeling is mutual, that I have never met a woman that can read through me and explore my inner core. Please keep in mind that I will not take your heart, that I hold, for granted. I will replace it with mine, so you know I wouldn't be able to breathe without it.
You are a splendid jewel released and I grasped. Never would I let a soul take you away or bring harm near you. The day I looked into the blue recesses of your soul - correction: my soul, I knew no force could ruin the joining of two souls.
Soul mates do exist and now I have learned that there is beauty behind all imperfections. It took us both years of hurt and pain and it has paid off. It's true when they say, "God makes you meet a few wrong people, before you meet the right one, so you will be able to appreciate and understand their worth."
Thank you for all that you have given me and that you continue to give me.
Your soul mate.

Hey Beautiful, I just wanted to do something simple to say I love you and to put that smile I love so much back on your face. I want everyone to know how much you mean to me. Ever since you have entered my life, I've been flying on Cloud 9 and I have not come down yet.
I tell you this everyday, but you are the most beautiful person I know, inside and out and I see that more clearly with each passing day. I love everything about you, about us. You do something to me that no other has, you have made me so happy, the happiest I've ever been. You give me the most amazing feelings inside, the feeling of being in love with you.
I still don't know what I did to be so lucky to have you in my life, my dream come true... I am so thankful though. In this short time that we've been together, we have grown so much and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us. I love you with all my heart and soul, always and forever!

Before we even met, my love, I should have told you this: there's this special love that I have deep within my heart. That love is only just for you. It is far greater than this planet, galaxy or universe. I wish I could show you how much you really mean to me. If I could let you feel how much I do really love you in a kiss or hug, you would only feel the surface of the love that I have for you. The only time when I can show you how much I do really love you is when we are married. For then you will see and taste how much I love you. You can hear the language of my love for you by listening to my heart; it will speak to you. You can taste the sweetest of it in a kiss and you can feel it in a hug. When you look deep into my eyes, you will see how great my love for you is. You will also know and see that it's no lie!
If I could describe the love that I have for you, I would try and use lyrics of love songs and even the sonnets of Shakespeare and it would be impossible, because the love that I love for you is real, unconditional, everlasting and indescribable. You've had my heart and love from the day we met and you will have it forever. As time goes by, my heart and love for you will keep on growing stronger, brighter and bigger.
To me, you're a rose that should be protected from thorns around lest they prick you. You're an angel that shouldn't be hurt. You're also honey that should be covered against contaminants. By the grace of God, I'm ready to do whatever it takes to make you happy, I promise.
Call me your love, lover, boyfriend and future husband from this day forth. You are all mine, as I am all yours. Although we have two different bodies, minds and souls, we have one and the same beautiful heart.
This is my unconditional love for you, from me to you.
I love you, my Buttercup, with all my heart, body, mind and soul. I will never stop loving you. You are my life, my world and my everything. Distance may keep us apart, but you will always and forever be embedded deep within my heart.

I am writing you this message with a sad heart cause i cant believe you would think i am lying about my mom to get money from you. How would i descend so low to that extent to make money. I know its not for me to ask money from someone that i have not meet face to face but i want you to know that if i didn't need the money so bad i would not have asked you. I want you to know that i am so proud of you for not trusting the wrong people but i want you to trust me and i promise i will let you down and you wont regret ever trusting me. I want you to know that i am not here to hurt any body i just want to love and be loved. I am not the kind of man that talk with a lot of woman. You are the only woman i have been sending mails to and i want you to know i am not doing this to get money and rip you off. I am not a liar and i have been honest with you all this while.
I want you to know that everything i have emailed you in my emails comes straight from my heart and i mean everything single word. My love for you is pure and true and very genuine. I want you to know that i will come to see you face to face but you know i have to get my mom out of the hospital before that can happen. You have made me the happiest i have ever been and i know i will never find a woman that will make me as happy as you have made me and that is why i dont want to lose you baby. PLEASE lets make this work out.
Baby I want to be able to meet you face to face cause you are the woman of my dreams and i want to spend the rest of my life with you. That's what has been on my mind. I love you so much Adina.
Baby I dont want to lose my mom i will understand if you are not willing to help me until you see me face to face but i want you to know that a friend in need is a friend in-deed.
I love you.
Good news ladies the guy did not get any money from me. I always had a bad feeling about the man behind those pictures.. and thank God i was right.
Please do not sent ANY MONEY TO SOMEONE THAT WRITES SO BEAUTIFUL. THOSE EMAILS ARE USUALLY WRITTEN AFTER A YEAR OR YEARS INTO A RELATIONSHIP. THE ROMANCE SCAMMERS ORGANIZATION MAIN FOCUS IS TO CLOSE THE DEAL IN 3 WEEKS MAX. THIS IS A BUSINESS TO THEM, SO BE CAREFUL DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO ANY JERK. REAL men usually fall in love when they have to do something special for her. So if you're dating make him work for your love, make him want you desperately...
I hope this informations help you get some scammers out there.
