Please can you help me to understand what the scam is?

Is it someone pretending to be someone they are not? Or are they trying to con people in some way?

This person is talking to me but seems nice enough so I'm not sure what I need to be worried about?

Scam is A fraudulent scheme performed by a dishonest individual, group, or company in an attempt obtain money. In this case done by Nigerian scammer group that pretend to be the guy in the pictures to gain your trust and love. Lead you in the fantasy romance than isolated you and brain wash you to keep your feeling in him ( the man in the picture) than in the end asking you to send them some money and help them financially.

Please remember that you not talking with the man in the pictures but a Nigerian gang. They stolen that man picture to attract a ladies in a dating site or social site than asking a money. and indeed they sweet talker. so please be careful and stop communication with him after you post all detail about him here such as where do you meet him online, his email ID, phone number, skype ID, his copy chat texts, email texts, recent pics that not yet posted, etc

and welcome to RS :) feel free to PM us if you need help.

Thank you for explaining.

Using the name of Harry Robinson but since says his name is Hermes but he is working on a secret military mission in Afghanistan as a 'Peacekeeper', 'negotiator' and 'diplomat'.

Terminology and how he describes himself very similar to above I.e. God fearing, trustworthy, respectful, looking for a woman to spend the rest of his life with.

I'm afraid I deleted the messages when I blocked him but his story is that his father died of cancer when he was young and his mother never got over it and has mental health problems because she can't get over it and because of being mistreated by men. He also claims that she can't bear to look at him because he reminds her too much of his deceased father.

Having read more on this site, I somehow don't think it is a coincidence that his story includes a mother with mental health problems because I was probably too open about my own and I think this was part of him trying to draw me in :(

I met him on KIK messenger username: robinson018
Also found Facebook profile in the name: Hermes Smith
Yahoo messenger: hrobby1973@yahoo.com

I reported the fake Facebook profile (before I read your guidelines sorry) and it has since been removed. There was another Facebook profile under the same name which looked equally suspicious which has since disappeared however I have included those images here as well as I suspect it may be the same person/group.

Mod edit: I believe the scammers have mixed galleries of two different men, so I split off the remaining three photos, which show a Spanish professional model, into an own topic here:
