Although these are indeed pictures stolen from my old Myspace page, I can assure you that none of these people are the real me. I am one of many Soldiers that came home from combat to find out that my pictures had been hijacked from my page and were now being used in romance scams.

I live in the Midwest, have been married for nearly eleven years and never imagined that my likeness would be used in something like this. My name is Konrad Faries, not Michael.

The person that used these pictures was very convincing. He put a lot of time romancing me everyday. He contacted me to wake me up in the morning and at night before going to sleep so that he would be the first and last person that I thought of each day. He contacted me during the afternoon too. He contacted me on Okcupid a dating site. Then he moved to texting. He sent me emails. It progressed to video chatting. He always had excuses why I could not see or hear him but he was able to see and hear me. He wanted me to help him to get a phone so that we could see and hear each other. This man knew what I wanted by reading my profile. Who knows he could have tailored his profile especially to grab my attention to match what I wanted. He turned off his profile once we were video chatting. He has a google profile online right now listing me in his circle with two other girls that have him in their circles but he doesn't show them in his circle from what I am allowed to see. This man told me about his son that is currently being cared for by his mother which I use to have a picture of. He got to know my two small kids and even wrote to them. We had been chatting for sometime and shared a lot with each other before I allowed my children to be affected by this. He lead me to believe that we were meant to be together. He wanted me to take his son Christopher in with me and my kids. I made room in my kids bedroom and closet for Christopher. We got a bunk bed, bedding, and gave him my son's clothes that he just grew out of. He told me that he wanted to get married and even sent a picture of the ring that he wanted to give me. This man sent me poetry and lovely letters everyday. He asked about the kids and gave advise like a father would when my son had some boys bothering him. He spoke of how our life together as a family would be like. He told me about how his first marriage didn't work and why the mother of Christopher was not in the picture anymore. This man likes to use the smilies faces alot and the buzz when IM Chatting. He likes to chat as early as 3:30 am, and as late as 8pm eastern standard time. He told me that he is stationed in Nigeria. When he asked for a phone he asked for a Blackberry Bold 9930 or 9900. He knew that money is tight with me. I am a single mom of two kids. I don't have a phone like this. He promised to pay me back. The video chats ended while he was asking for the phone due to no access. This man asked me to send him a phone and care package. He said that he could not get mail sent directly to him. The package had to be sent to a person named Henry John in Akure, Ondo Nigeria instead of him to keep him safe. Once the phone was received, he stopped emailing me. Once he got the phone, he told me that the phone's camera was not working so that he could not send me pictures or video chat. It was working when I sent it. He also asked for a care package of items that he missed from back home (under wear, cookies, chocolates, cologne, shaver, pics of me,..). He continued to IM me from his new phone. He called me three times for a few minutes at a time. He had a German accent. He told me that his mother moved him to Germany after his father died. He moved back to the states at 25. Several weeks after this he told me that he needed money for food and meds. At this point I was asking many questions about him to get the truth out of him. I still wanted to believe in the dream that he had painted for me. I was in denial. I had made room in my home for this man. I had picked out a wedding dress. My kids got to know him too. I had the pictures that he had sent me up in my home to look at everyday. This man may have taken money from me and my kids that we needed to live but emotional games that he played with us hurt more. He even wanted me to get a tatoo for him. I did not do that thank GOD. He used GOD saying that I was his soul mate and that we were meant to be. I am still getting over this. I am relieved to see this site to confirm that this man is a con man and that there really is a man that belongs to these pictures that is a good person. Dear Konrad, I pray that you and your family are very happy together. I feel kind of strange knowing that I have fallen in love with the pictures of a married man not associated with the man who romanced me for things and to play games with my heart. Please forgive my poor grammar here. I am writing what comes to mind right now without trying to correct my writing.

Dear Amber, it's a sad thing to have to deal with and I understand your pain. It's so very hard for good, honest, compassionate people like yourself, to even understand how someone could be so purely evil. Just know that there is such a thing as karma and this scammer will get what he deserves. Meanwhile, you'll get what you deserve too and you will be the ultimate winner. Give yourself time to grieve, educate yourself on how to spot the fakes (they're everywhere) and don't lose hope or faith in goodness and love.

I don't think there is reason to feel anything other than scammed! I know that's how I feel about all of this. I'm sorry that I wasn't more catious with my social networking sites. All of these pictures were copied from my old MySpace page, which has since been deleted. I've been contacted by several women telling me their stories of how someone used minimal information about me and a few pictures to, essentially, scam innocent people. I assure you that this is not what I stand for, and given the opportunity I would do everything possible to end this crap. Know that the pain this lowlife caused will pass.

Well I am now a victim of his as well. Gave Kelvington Tyler Faries my everything for 10 months. He was to come home next week to be with me forever. When I couldn't send money he was punished by his General. I can't even speak right bow as I'm feeling like a fool. So he is at it again and it hurts like hell...I just found out this today as I was starting to question since he can't log on...He has his general, Generaldevall@usa.com, email me to send $100 or he loses his connection. I am more hurt that I have given all my time and effort for the last 10 months to find this out. Who do I contact, how? He has done a lot that has messed up my life, especially this past month or really two weeks...My bank account is frozen and now they have cancelled my account. There is too much to even write or tell about. I hope he burns in HELL and is caught for doing such awful things to me and others.
