Steven Parker - Facebook Scammer

Postby Peppercorn » Wed Oct 24, 2012 8:29 pm

Please excuse me if I have posted in the wrong place. I have been trying to read and understand the site rules and how one should go about posting about a scam, for the past couple of days whilst fighting the shock and fear I have expereinced.

My expereince finally ended on Monday when money came into the equation and alarm bells finally rang !

I do not have email details as the two week long communication happened over Face Book personal messaging, I do have photos and I do feel extremely foolish, shocked and upset. Even though I now feel anger I still can't believe what has happened to me and how easily I was taken in. I would like this posted on your site to warn others and stop any heart break and/or financial loss.

I should imagin, from what I have read here this is an African scam using a white man's identity. I will copy below an extrat from his message and perhaps someone would tell me how much information you want. I only have the message conversation and a few pictures he sent me.


"Honey how are you today, I hope you are fine? Please I need your prayers.We are now at the Labuan Island close to South East Asia and our ship have develop a major fault and we are now moving at a very slow pace. Please Pray for me and the crew members that nothing happen to us.
I love you."

Can yopu post the money request message please?

I´m afraid you are right, this is a scam. Did he ever give you a phone number, "company", and what was his first message text, please, since they tend to be reused over and over and therefore, need to be googleable?

How about a link to his FB page and perhaps copies of the FB convo where he asked you for money. This would help us a lot. We have people here who can maybe get his email address and IP. But if he asked you for money, he's a scammer. Thanks for posting him up.
If your question isn't answered in the FAQ, please message a green Moderator or red Admin. We need to know.

Wanted to send me money but that was when alarm bells rang ... this is that part of the message, I will collate the other information and post again, please bear with me

Steven Parker

My Dearest,
I have been trying to get across to you since and I am still trying to get access to internet since I sent my last message, our communication systems has a transmission problem, I want to thank you so much for your love and concern you have shown at this time. I thank God everyday for bringing us together as one family.
My darling whatever situation I found myself I always give glory to God. The situation here is getting worse and we've done all we could to put the brain box of the ship in order but to no avail and beside we just received information from the Signal unit that there are some sea pirates blocking the sea. They are about 312 KM away from us and the nearest place for this Ship to anchor is an Island somewhere in South East Asia. As it is now, we are no longer safe because we are all terrified and afraid of the Sea pirates attack because the ship is moving at a very slow pace now. Our captain has called for a rescue team to help convey the non-insured goods in the ship but we are yet to get a response from our headquarters.
Our captain here in the Ship has equally announced that all crew members should offload their personal properties for any other means of transportation as the Ship will duck in a safe Island for someday until it's safe for us to continue sailing.
Honey my problem now is,my money which I kept in my cabin safe box and my vital contract document, I do not want it stolen from me in the event of any attack. My plan was to use this money to buy Metal oil in drums from Australia and supply to the company in Mexico I already had contract agreement with. Honey, as the Director of Operation in this Ship, it’s not possible for me to leave the ship because I have to take care of this ship until all GOODS/PRODUCT is completely discharged.
Now there are so many security company stands at the sea shore and I am thinking of what to do? and at this time I need you to stand by me. I don't know what to do now; I want to quickly send you the money and my vital contract document so that you can help me to secure it in your place until I have the chance to make my trip and meet you soonest. I TRUST you and give you my whole heart so that life can move straight with us and I know you will never disappoint or hurt me because we are already two in one flesh. I have learned to take life as it happens as I remember everything happens for a reason.
I will discuss with one of the security company here, They will proceed delivery immediately I get a confirmation from you to assist me in receiving this money because there is no bank here and I don't want to loose the money to sea pirates because I know how I suffered for it and our future depends on it.
Honey quickly forward to me your information as follows to enable me send the money to you immediately through the Security Company:-
Your Full Name:
Your Receiving Address:
Phone number:
Email Address:
Honey this is very urgent, waiting for your quick response. Please I need your prayers this time because we are in a state of confusion, praying that nothing happens to us. Please take good care of yourself, I hope and pray to meet you in good health.
I love you so much!
Hug and kisses

Aah it´s typical that the anonymous Nigerian criminal invents a helping party that in turn will be made responsible for money requests. "Security company", in your case. Otherwise it would have been a "lawyer", "bank", "customs official", "doctor (for hospital bills)",...

Do you have that "Security Company´"s details?

It´s just another fake character like the original "Stephen Parker". One anonymous Nigerian scammer plays them all, with various accounts.

The twist with "pirates on the sea" is unusual but possibly reflects what the scammers have recently heard in the international media. Ghaddafi´s treasure, Saddam´s gold bars or "the UN compensation programme for scam victims" are all typical Nigerian scammers´ inventions.

You should never feel ashamed. As you can see, thousands have been through this. Internet theft happens every day.

Well I hope I did not put the thought in his mind as I originally mentioned Somalian Sea Priates !!! I don't have any agency details phone numbers etc, all I have is our conversation and a few photo's he sent me, plus some youtube clips of music which can no longer be viewed since I blocked communication. Once the subject of money and needing my help cropped up I just dropped out, but did tell him I could not continue as his story was incredulous.

The Facebook Status can no longer be accessed by me as I blocked it with Face book as I did not want him to be able to get to me


Steven Parker

Thanks for the kind note, (my name) let me tell you about myself.
My name Steven Parker. I am from Dublin Ireland. I am an Engineer by profession. I work with Maersk shipping company Ltd here in the U.K. I have been with the company for 13 years as the director of operations
Let me tell you more about myself, I am from Dublin Ireland and I lost my wife 4yrs ago, No Kids and my both parents are gone..I have been single and alone since then. I think this is my time to move on. I can cook, clean, make my own bed well when I feel like it, Though all offers are welcome LOL.
I am looking for a partner who doesn't mind sharing everything, the good times and the bad. Someone to watch a good movie with, for great conversation and see the world with. Good company and conversation essential. I have got a soft spot for intelligent and cute woman with opinions of their own; good looks are a bonus. Above all you must have a good sense of humor, Whilst I have my serious side, I tend to see the lighter and funnier side of life I love the beach, sailing, Love to go out to nice restaurants; am easy going, I could go anywhere at anytime and make it fun.
I enjoy dancing to country music especially if I find a good companion to dance with, please note that you must laugh at all my jokes!! I consider myself a sincere man, very easy going, kindhearted, intelligent, hard working, loyal, understanding, creative woman that places spirituality as an important part of my life...LOL, honest and open.
I can also be funny and I have a quick wit as well, I am a happy person, responsible, honest, considerate, caring, sincere, serious and have a good sense of humor. I am looking for a woman to possibly develop a relationship with. I am a Marine Engineer, I work with a Shipping Line here in the UK, I do enjoy my job though risky because we are always on the high sea. Am 52 years old, My birthday is 19/10/1960. I think this is all for now!
Can you tell me more more about your self; your like and dislike? How old are you? Are you ready to move on with that special someone?
look forward to read from you soon!
Steven Parker.

This is the original contact message, to which I told him I did not make friends with people I did not know, but he still continued with message above, I also told him I am married and that I could not offer what he was looking for. I am so embarrassed I shared quite a bit of personal/emotional stuff with him, but no personal details such address, phone numbers, email etc.,

Steven Parker

I was searching for a friend on face book when I came across your profile, I stared at your photo for several minutes "you look so beautiful. I will really like us to be friend, I sincerely apologize for bugging into your privacy, write back to me, if i made an impression on you.

More than anything now I want to alert others, would hate to think anyone else would be drawn in but from reading on this site there are thousands out there doing this on a daily basis, I can not say on here what I want to say about these people, pure evil just isn't enough. Please do let me know what or if I shoudl do anything else or any other help or support I could give

Maybe someone else will join after but right now out of my head I can´t think of anything else to ask. Email address and phone number simply aren´t available, which is a pity, since especially the former very often leads to more fake profiles of the same scammer, and sometimes to his real face (see link "Scammers." in my signatureline).
Please block him. It would be a far too high risk for you to go on "only" to get his email. Someone else will read what you´ve posted tonight and maybe come forward, register and contribute :)
