editing my first post to add the info that everybody keeps asking over and over again: how these images were obtained. Answer: very simple. Some scammers eventually confess and show their faces on cam (thus, some cam shots). But those are in minority. The majority of images were obtained from their real profiles on social networks (mainly from Facebook, but also sometimes from myspace and tagged). The thing is, that many scammers are incredibly stupid or lazy, and use the same email address for scamming and for the real life profiles. All social networks allow you to search their users database by email. So, you search a social network by email addy that your scammer gave you... and surprise, surprise! A real mug pops up!!
It is important to clarify: we NEVER search social networks by name or username. ONLY by email address. Because 2 different unrelated people can share the same name, even a rare name, but 2 different unrelated people cannot share the same email address. To avoid mistakes, images obtained by name searches are always deleted and not included in this gallery. Only email match counts.
For further information about any scammers listed here and which emails were used for search please see their topics on this board. All these images with no exception are also posted in the corresponding topics.

here is a bigger, better version, plus another one with his mug clearly visible for our gallery:
just in case he removes them from FB... I usually visit their FB profiles with a slight delay, few weeks after they are posted here on RS (when I collect pics for SD). You would be surprised how many remove or replace their pics!! Often the pics posted here are no longer on FB after a few weeks.
BTW, our scammers4real gallery was updated the other day, and it already contains 100 females and 300 males!!
