Ignore, of course! You are talking to an anonymous Nigerian who has also stolen the same picture gallery. Carrying on would be a waste of your time and confronting would be dangerous. ;)

Hello Everyone!!

I'm so thankful I was a smart girl and decided to Google Ben Rivers. I met him a couple of weeks ago on a dating website and to be honest he seemed to good to be true which is why I was very doubtful. We began messaging on yahoo, he is using benrivers2010@yahoo.com. This is the number he gave me on Yahoo 1 (347) 699-3437. He claimed he had widowed and had a 4 year old daughter named Ana.

All the pictures on this website of supposedly Michael and all the other aliases are the pics he sent me plus the ones with the little blond girl. A couple of days ago he sent me a video of them two singing a song supposedly for me. Althouhg I fell in love with the video I knew something was not right. He claims to be visiting his mother battling cancer in Africa. I also found him on LinkedIn and last night when he asked what I was doing I advised him I was updating my LinkedIn account and he pretended to not know what it was so I didnt push the subject but that just made me more suspicious.

Since finding this website, I have blocked him from my yahoo and dating website. I also reported him to both yahoo and dating website.

I know the actual individual on the pics has been contacted by someone but does he know that a video is out there too????

This really makes me think twice of trusting anyone online. So sad but better safe than sorry.

Good luck everyone!!

Hello,
I too was another victim of Frank Collins. He found me on Zoosk and his screen name was seekingtrulove. I have been talking to him for about 3 months now and I cant believe all of this. Of course by now, I am in love with a con man. I do have alot of same pictures but honestly I just want this guy caught! His story was, he lived in Oahu and his mother had a bad fall and lived in Nigeria and he needed to go. So for the first month it was just texting and talking on phone. I had my doubts, but of course he had all the answers and I always believed him. Well he did get me to send him money and it was a couple thousand dollars. Cant believe there are actual people who do this kind of things. Well i have alot more but talking about this makes me sick! Any questions please feel free to contact me at my email. Thank you for listening. :heartbroken:

Hello and Welcome to RS.

It is unlikely that the Nigerian government will bother catching the creep who is merely one out of many at the cafes. But what you can do to help others that this con artist is in touch with is to DO share those pictures. Not only that, but share his email address, as well as the phone contact he uses. Also, copies of his actual money requests will come in handy for others as well.
"Scam signs"

ATTN GUESTS!!Telling your mugu that he/she is busted will accomplish absolutely nothing but teaching them how to be better at scamming/victimizing, as well as cause other victims unnecessary duress. Unless this is what you hope to cause, do NOT confront them!

Hello All, had me going for three weeks as well. Very attentive found me on OKCupid, goes by the name James Oliver Peters, email address was olivers.peters@yahoo.com. Daughter turned 6 on Feb. 14 but he didn't have money to buy her a present. Even uses his own voice to sound like that of a little girl. Claimed he was working in the oil industry to make money. Cried a lot when questioned about inconsistencies, cried when he found out he had to "go to Nigeria" to work. Claimed he lived in Ohio and really didn't care much about the Phillies though you see in the vast majority of pics he is wearing Phillies gear. Said his wife died of kidney disease in his arms. Lost his mother from old age and father died in Russia. HEAVY accent he claimed he picked up from his mother. Only child, orphaned, raising the daughter alone.

The guy in the pictures is gorgeous by the way. He must be fighting off the ladies!
