Scammers using pictures of Sweet Devon.

Postby jimmy205 » Sun May 01, 2011 2:14 pm

This is how it started

(Well am feeling reluctant to talk about myself and my situation to you
because i don't know how you will feel. My late father have money
hiding up from the Nigerian Goverment before he died,since they didn't
let him Transfer the Money out of here when he was alive,because they
want him to Invest it here after he sold the 500 acres of land which
he bought intending to build an estate which after the nigerian
government tried to impose a certain amount of tax on the estate which
estimated to about %30 of the initial budget for the estate, and this
made him changed his mind and sold the lands and tried transferring
the funds back to the states but was not later allowed and this made
him put the money in a travelling suitcase and deposit it with a
Security and Insurance Company who render private diplomatic delivery
service and he told them that the two boxes are his travelling
luggages, which he wants to send forth home because his returning
home, then he paid them up their custody and security fee, but he did
not tell them that the boxes contain money in order to make everything
secure and safe. and now that my father is late and as the next of kin
and only child is what has brought me here to claim the luggages which
contains $1.5MILLIONUSD.I really want to get out of here and start a
new life in the state, I really need your trust and help to get me out
of this trouble I am into and I promised I will not let you be
disappointed, i will really appreciate your help towards this , and I
want to believe that you will not let me down.
How i want you to help me?
i want you to be my beneficiary to make the clearance and shipment of
the suitcase to you in the state,it can be delievred anywhere safely
to you in the state as far as you are my beneficiary and recieving it
on my behalf. I want the suitcase sent to you while i catch up with
you as soon as it is been delivered to you in the state. Every
arrangement for the delivery is kinda perfect, I have obtained customs
papers for private freight and there are seals on the box showing that
it is a private delivery and check performed, it is free from customs
checks, it will be delivered wherever you want as the delivery
destination by the diplomats of the security company. And the boxes
have security codes lock known to me only, only me can open the boxes,
except if I tell anyone the Code, so the Boxes cannot be opened on the
Way of delivery to you. And once the box gets to you, I will let you
know the lock codes to open the boxes and the instructions, then you
can open the boxes in order to have some money sent to me for my
flight to the states. I hereby promise 10% of the total fund for you
to meet any personal needs and I can get something done with the
balance.I am counting on you with trust and I will appreciate your
help and assistance towards this,so i can be able to leave here
relocate to your town and we both can be happy together.

Then what makes you think it's the same person? Remember that most scammers speak the same way as they're from the same place, they use the same stories and come up with the same reasons for needing money. They steal scripts and photos from each other, so two profiles can have the same picture, the same wording and yet be created by two different people.

Hello All:

This scammer resurfaced recently with the same mambo-jumbo story. Got the same explanation (a lousy copy and paste job), same fake docs (a poor/crude use of photo doctoring software). Played with him/her for a few days trying to obtain as much personal info as I could before turning the ip and the whole story over to the Internet Fraud Division of a certain three-letter agency. Problem is, these types are small-time crooks who scam people for small amounts of money at a time, so the agency may not deem it worthwhile to investigate, considering them small potatoes.

Do you know whose pictures "Laura Hoffman" use? There may be more than one using "Laura Hoffman" denominator, for there are too many discrepancies in the use of English, sometimes good sometimes gibberish. It would be nice to warn the poor soul whose pics were stolen. Any other info on this is appreciated.

I have some unique methods of catching these types of scammers so if you need help, please drop me a line.

Thanks, Mark.

I have no idea who the blonde is, but the other girl is Sweet Devon. The picture being posed with the top straps pulled down is usually a good indicator it's a porn gal, as was the case here.

Writing to law enforcement agencies is usually a waste of time. They won't do anything as it's out of their jurisdiction and it's impossible to prove who was sitting at the PC when the emails were sent. They'll add it to their files but that's it.

Hey guys. Thanks for having this website running, I just stumbled across it.

I just had contact with a scammer using pictures from Sweet Devon. Unfortunately I didn't know this "actress", otherwise I'd have gotten behind this sooner. She didn't get far enough to ask for any money, I just got very suspicius.

I found her on parship.de, a german dating site. Her german was really bad so I assumed she was maybe british oder american, since english and german were the only listed languages. But her english was just as bad. She immediately moved the conversation from the dating site to email, most probably because you have a limited writing capability on a free account.

I told her she couldn't scam me and shouldn't bother. Now I'll report her on the site. But watch out anyway.

Here are her facts:
Megan Richmond (ziemlichmegan01@yahoo.de)
found on: parship.de

her first mail:
How are you doing today ? I want you to know that your profile look so nice and am sure your way of living will be good enough to live and get married with . My name is Megan .I was born in Bremen. i work for my parent in a Rubber company in Canada, right now it has been shut down because they recently died in an auto crash in the germany , but am here in now in London , United kingdom for my career due as a Fashion Designer who works with an old established Chinese fashion warehouse as a fashion designing agent on contract and i like my job very much although it can be stressful sometimes.

I really need someone to live with right now because i have been single for years now but now am trying to get someone so special on this dating site , my greatest dream for the future is to find the man i can marry, who will be my best friend, my lover, my soul mate, and my partner in all life's adventures at the very least. I need you to be someone to spend all my time with,sharing all the pleasures I've discovered in life, and that's a lot, believe me..i also want someone who is very affectionate, because touching and hugging and caressing are a basic part of my spirit. I will like you to send me your Pictures Thanks I am so pleased to read your reply,it has warm my heart and I am hoping to get to always hear from you..I hope this will take us to the next level and webuild a relationship that will last forever by God's grace . Am a christain in religon but i often go to church .I want you to know that i will be right back to the germany very soon,I just need to finished something here ....Distance between us does not bother me as I know we could meet,I liked your profile and all I read about it was awesome,it will be my pleasure to get to know more about you and I am putting this questions to you....

What do you do for a living?,
What do you seek for in a relationship?
You ever been married? Got kids?
What do you do for fun?
How long have you been single?
What's being single like?
How do you treat your lady?
Would you hit your lady for any reasons? .

I'll hopefully want to know what your consent is about these questions.I want to get to know you and meet you.,
I will be waiting to hear from you.
Megan
I think it's pretty sloppy. That whole marriage thing and the story about her dead parents are a bit too much.

Anyway, watch out everyone.
Greetings from germany.

Well done spotting him out :)

If you learn how to get an email header I have no doubt you´ll find emails from "her" would all be sent from West Africa or Malaysia, because this is a typical Nigerian love scam. An anonymous black male Nigerian is behind this and you have found just one of his many dozen fake personalities. It´s only for the moeny so don´t waste your time with them, feel free to report them here, have a read through the German FAQ (see my signature line) and feel free to come back any time!
Please try your best to block ALL your scammer´s still incoming messages and calls!

What is all this? => The FAQ

The scammers vs. Why is "he" still doing it?

Why is alerting the man in the pictures DANGEROUS?
