Other Comments: Same picture different name on romancescams.org:
My intent is that this list will help others identify a similar pattern.
My scammer has claimed that (random list in no particular order);
- he lives in Newark NJ
- he is involved in Gold and Diamond mining .in Accra Ghana
- travels to Accra, Ghana and Japan
- contracted Malaria while in Accra, Ghana
- when asked why he didn’t get vaccinated he replies that he wasn’t sick before (in hind sight this is a clue- vaccines are preventative not post illness prescriptive)
- a mining worker tried to steal diamond from him
- was attacked by a mining worker
- was robbed when trying to collect money
- someone tried to kidnap
- has a lawyer called James in the U.S.
- have a son named John studying in a college/university in Germany
- have an adopted son Casly in Accra in a college/university
- Casly’s mother (Joseph’s wife) supposedly died in 2007
- Casly’s father was supposedly Joseph Kwabina
- Joseph Kwabina was supposedly his body guard
- Joseph Kwabina was supposedly shot and killed in while in the U.S. in Sept 2008
- was shot in the arm in 2 separate events
- was carjacked and shot protecting the vehicle while in the U.S.
- likes BMW’s especially model X5
- wants you to buy then send him Timberland boots, cell phones, laptop pc’s, laptop backpack, Davidoff Coolwater fragrance, lock of your hair , digital cameras via Fed Ex or DHL
- be in love with you and sends you things in my case flowers, a diamond ring
- needs money because he is sick in the hospital, stranded in Ghana, needs plane fare, needs BTA, needs to help Casly (adopted son) with food, education expenses, needs help due to the death of family members
- claims that even though he is in the U.S. you need to send money via Moneygram or Western Union to Accra, Ghana so that son can load his KLM account to be used for travel
- wants to set up a business with you
- if you are web savvy will ask you to set up a web site for the to be business
- that website awards are just fake you can just make them up, copy and bootleg them
- want your kids to be his kids too – part of a family
- has to call you in the middle of the night due his work with international people
- will send you pictures of gold bars, loose uncut diamonds, himself, his son
- wants to buy a house with you and sends you online house listings to check out
- he let it drop that he switches Sim Cards from one cell phone into another
- used to give overseas numbers which frequently had very poor reception
- now prefers to have U.S. based number that is rarely answered by a person and instead switches to voice mail.
- claims someone hacked his yahoo id and used his pictures and information that is why you see his pictures used by other people
- likes to use falling hearts environment when on yahoo IM
For anyone looking at this scammer, please also take the time to visit the Claude Eichmann profile. These two profiles are actually the same scammer, using 2 seperate ID's. I am positive there are more out there, but the MO's are far too much the same to not be the same person. Watch especially, for the odd nuances. The sz 9 1/2 Timberland boots. He wants you to send locks of hair. Same son's pic, same names used, just switches up the roles they play.
Stay safe out there!
