Just wanted to add to this thread... "Jeff Collins" alive and well, using some of these same photos on Match.com but now profile inactive. He sucked me in pretty good but I had some red flags and stopped communication. Latest contact info....as of 7/21/13... sent through Match. And his Yahoo ID is smilingjeffery01. That cell phone is a Denver area code, so believable..

His name is Jeff Dickson, I've been talking to and sending him money since January 2013. My daughter and I lost a house and everything, he has sucked $6,000 from me. I was dumbfounded, my daughter did a google image search on his picture and found this site with his pictures and names. His email is email@example.com he claims to be in France and held in jail because he had a US Treasure money check and claims that the France guards is under suspicions of him trying to bomb the America. Weird right? He's always asking for money and making excuses after excuses on why he needs it or why he can't come here. He says he's living in the hotel with the dogs and going on trial to get his "check" back and his lawyer also "lives" with him in last few months. He says he lost a wife due to car accident and his children lives in Italy and refused to have any contact with him. His parents died in plane crash. He claims to live in California and he had me to send money to this lady in California. Here's the address Lisa Irene Sheppard 633 E. Main St. #109 San Jacinto, CA 92583 He says she is his lawyer or secretary? She has been taking $6,000 something from me in last few months. He also said he was building a bridge in Lagos, Nigeria and bringing home 5 million US Treasure money check that's when he supposedly got caught in France for bringing a suspicion check.He made up a lot of excuses. If it wasn't for my daughter I wouldn't have known about this site.

My mom's been taking to him even after I showed.her videos and pictures of real man from.the picture. She thinks she could save the scammer's life. Help me, he doesn't deserve to be saved. She needs to see that he's been lying about his life experience to make her to feel sorry or even think about saving him. What's your input for this..help. I don't want my mom to fall for another scam from him. He begged for money again. Claiming he's real and the guy from the picture. He says THE MAN SANTIAGO stole his identity. I knew that's a load of bull. Help me to wake my mom up.
I am so sorry to hear about your mother. Unfortunately, when there is 8-paged topic going back to April 25, 2007 (!!!) and a victim still doesn't believe after seeing it, I am afraid there is not much we can do. This is called "denial".
Just be there for her and at least make sure she doesn't send more money.
Would like to talk to viva and daughter ..maybe admin can relate my info i hope and pray .. have known handsome man or whoever it is for very very long.. longer than her ..need to talk...very tearful or how you say sad what happens to ladies..thanks all for posting it helps..
Hi, can you first please post the scammer´s emailaddress and phone number they used?
You can PM anyone on the board freely yourself; however, maybe bear in mind that with this subject matter of love scams, posters arrive, recognize pics, post their scammer , i.e. new scam details after being asked specifically for the emailaddress and phone number used, money request receiver name etc, and never return after the first day, most also not being interested in longer discussions about this, which is understandable, of course, trying to move on; so you might not get a reply from another victim if it´s been too long ago...
Please try your best to block ALL your scammer´s still incoming messages and calls!
Paulax, my mom is still talking to him. Jeff knows about this site and keep denying..saying you all are making it up, the man Santiago stole his identify which clearly is load of bs like Paula said.. I don't understand why my mom still believes his SOB story. I'm at the point where I don't know what to do anymore but let her to get hurt and become homeless if she continues giving him money. I honestly don't want to take a part of this because it's not even my fault that we lost the house. I'm just gonna give up and move out. He has been begging her for money and said this would be the last time he asked...and I knew it meant he's gonna take the money and disappear. Leave my mom hanging and homeless. My mom wants to go to the police I told her she has to stop talking to Jeff completely but she refused so it's her problem now I tried did what she wants me to do but I can't do anything until she stop talking to him. UPDATED: He says his full name is Jeff Ameri Dickson. And have 2 dogs.
