Other Comments: is someone received this photo from a dating site MuslimMarriage?, said he is german, and he is an angineer in roads and bridge in nigeria.
but i think she is a woman from nigeria, because the voice don't match with the man photo, i really fell in love with the guy on this picture and his country (Germany), and i'm sure he is not the real scammer, poor man!, i'm sure he is a victim and i really feel sorry for him and for me, because myself i send photos and now i hope the scammer will not use them to scamm another men.
WOMEN BE WAR, SCAMMERS ARE ALL NIGGERS FROM NIGERIA.
I'M REALLY SORRY FOR THE MAN ON THOSE PHOTOS, ALL WHAT I WISH THAT WILL HELP HIM, I'M SURE HE IS NOT THE SCAMMER, A SCAMMER NEVER SEND HIS PHOTOS, I WISH SOME DAYS I WILL MEET YOU, THE REAL SCAMMER ARE BLACKS NIGGERS FROM NIGERIA.
How are you today? I have been working myself out down here, I want to get this project done quickly and leave the Country. I was at the site with Glen and the local laborers yesterday, I never knew nice people still exist here in Nigeria despite their bad names and the suffering in those areas, there are still good people down there, I visited a local town, The way all of them (the people) were staring at me, At first I thought I was scaring them but later I realized they are suprised to see a man with my kind of looks, both the colour and dressing, I visited this town (Village) at the out sketch of Owerri and Port-Harcourt. It was fun all the way.........Hmmmmmm Let me tell you the stories of everything that happened, It is great to be here, most of the things down here are different compared to the rest of the countries I have visited, both the people, life, dressing, environment and weather. I may write a book about my visit here, It's interesting......Smiling
I am getting darkere here (LOL).... the weather is too hot for me, I hope not to get sun burn soon. The women here at the Village found me more attractive, they were all staring at me but I put my head down a lot and ceased not to make eye contact or when they called on me to come and talk to them I would stay with the men. There cars here doesn't have sit belts and when I went to the family I visited I sat on the floor and they were washing their cloths with a stone, there are no washing machines. They made a home made flat bread for me to eat at first earlier this morning, the children got excited with me and wanted to touch my skin and just sit close.....I feel they look in wonder at my colour or whatever. You wouldn't believe a lot of people living in one room, A family lived with brother, mother, husband and children in one room in a shanty, Parents and children sleeping together. The oldest woman there being there grandmother wanted me to sleep over on her bed but I wouldn't take it, I found it humbling but happy.
The kids here are incredible, they would say what is this? what is that? and I would gentle explain everything to them. With the family I was with, they took me out to a sugar cane farm to visit their relatives but they had never been close to white men before, they killed a chicken in my honour and cooked hot chillie food. I gave a young boy #1000 Naira and he said God bless you, I thought maybe he would go to a shop and buy ice cream or lollies no that was not so, you see he hadn't had a proper food for many days and he ran to the market and bought food for his mother to cook that made me see things in other ways. No I didn't realize the same for the young child out the back, he also ran to purchase food for a meal that would feed the whole family, and was saying God bless you so excited and made me think for what this world is like.
The women on the other hand, well I got whistled at driving in a van for my safety with the workers in the field they would call me and smile and wave, they tried calling me out but I never went, they would say let us help you learn the language or let us teach you to ask what you would like for dinner I smiled and said no. I had to stay in a small building with a lot of family where there is laughter and happiness because that is all I ask for at this time maybe they don't have everything material but they have much more to offer. If not for the Government that is corrupt.
The job is progressing, I will write more later.
I will tell you about all my activities down here, you deserve to know everything about me and my safety, I was warned thouroughly by the Embassy, so if anything happends to me, I am on my own so I have to be very careful.
So Honey, tell me more about your day? Write me as often as you can, Okay?
Hugs and kisses!
You are in my thoughts.
Asking for the commitment...
How are you? For me, I am doing great. I miss you and I miss reading your encouraging emails. I want you to know that despite my busy schedule, I have you in my thoughts always. You are my dream woman, you are all I seek in a future partner.
About our profiles at the marriage site where I contacted you, I have closed up my profile and I will like you to do the same. I did because I want to concentrate on you alone, I want to give you all my attention. I do receive emails from other women and I am very sure you receive emails from other Men too. I want to concentrate in building this relationship with you alone, try to develop the chemistry and rapport between us and see where it will lead us to. I am not in this alone, i also need you to do the same.
Lets work together in faith, trust, commitment, faithfulness, understanding, patience and tolerance, and make sure we take this relationship where its suppose to be. Lets pray together and make sure we reach the final destination as Man and wife.
The reason i want all this with you is because, the day I first saw your profile at the marriage site, You were the first of many women that fitted my search criteria. As I looked through the other profiles, my thoughts kept wandering back to yours, none of the others sparked my interest as yours did and I have not felt the need to look at anyone else since. You're the one that I want and i want you to search your heart thoroughly to know if am the one you want. Can you hear my heart calling you??
Dearest, I know that i have all the qualities to put smiles on a woman's face on daily bases.You must agree with me that the most precious gifts are not always close to us, no matter the distance, we should fight and strive hard to get it, cause all that matters in life is the happiness we'll both share together as one. I have searched my heart, i have answers in my dream that we'll be happy together. I see my future in you!!! Please don't say am rushing things, cause i can't hide my feelings anymore.
From our little conversation through constant emails, i found out you've not been given the kind of attention a woman of your status deserve. You are a woman with a good heart. Please search your heart and tell me what you feel about us? I have decided to make you my Queen, give you all the attention you need, have lots of together time with you, sing and dance with you, look after the kids, while you cook, all this i want to do with you if you accept to make me your King.
WILL YOU MAKE ME YOUR KING?
Waiting and wondering..
Hugs And Kisses!
What a Lier....
It was so nice chatting with you on phone this, I really did enjoyed our conversation, wish we could talk more, but sorry, duty call.
Yesterday was a great day, I worked long hours, The job is really progressing, I am so happy. I signed up more Engineers to assist me in the project, to get the job faster and well done.
While I was going to work this Morning, I was served a letter to visit an Orphanage home and Fund raising Launching by tomorrow, It is my pleasure to be invited.
Being an orphan is one thing I hate about my life but ever since we met, I am feeling this love flowing, I got peace of the mind, I have every reasons to give thanks to God for leading us together despite we never met my heart beats stronger for you.
All my equipments are here now, the job is getting intensed. I am doing my best, but God knows best. Tell me more about your day?
I feel tired now, I will go take my shower, talk to you later.
You are in my thoughts.
As the day passes by, I see more reason to give my heart and soul to you with hope you will treat them with care.
Have a lovely day.
Hugs and kisses!
An Expert Writer
How are you today? Yesterday, I worked over time. There is progress, the project is moving fine. It's my day off and I feel there is a need to write a long email to you, you mean more to me more than you think, you worth telling every footstep I make.
Today, I will do a lot of paper works, next week is the last week of the project, so I need to put lots of things together including time and energy. I will also go to the town to get some things I am lacking in my apartment, the town is 3 hours drive from here. When I get back, I will cook my meals, do a little work out and then have enough rest. This is my last day off, before the conclusion of the project, I need to have enough rest, so I don't break down with too much work.
I want to write out my heart for you to read, Just when I thought of writing an email to you about the normal relationship issues to get to know each other better, I thought of making a little change...of putting all my thoughts for you to read. Your opinion will be highly appreciated.
We don't find them too often, hearts that warm us with their understanding. If we have some unusual ideas or beliefs it's even more difficult to find any who can honestly relate to us with no fear or withdrawal. I think maybe it goes back to knowing who you are and being comfortable with yourself, so that other's ideas become a learning experience and not a threat to you.
I'm so thankful for each heart mine has formed a bridge with each time they make me happy to be alive and each opportunity I have to do the same for them. Friendship is so much more than casual acquaintance or simple liking of someone, superficially. friendship digs deep into both hearts and is transparent with each other. There is no need for deception when you know you are accepted, faults and all. There is no need to feel inferior when you know you won't be pressured to change even when your friend has a clear view of your short comings.
Unless you have never deeply loved, you have at sometime in your life experienced a broken heart. Broken because the one you loved died, or left you, or simply was not the person you thought they were and the bond between you was broken. No one who has ever had one, wants to have another broken heart. There is no way to explain the agony of it, the only way to understand it is to experience it and once you do you will never want that experience again. I believe that a heart that has been broken, once or many times is a heart with the potential to love in a fuller, deeper way than one who has never been wounded. Whether we allow that potential to develop is our own decision. It's natural for the heart to draw up into a protective shell and distance itself at least for a time from any further danger from love but it's tragic when progress halts there and the person is sealed away from love forever.
I would rather bear the suffering of a thousand broken hearts than to live my life afraid of love, afraid to give and receive the greatest gift life has to offer. What is the worst thing that can happen if you love? Another broken heart and if you've had one before, you know you can survive another. The worst thing that can happen if you refuse love is far beyond the pain of loving and losing. Some people are so incredible, in their talents, in their expression, but most of all in their souls, that they leave indelible marks on our lives. Marks that will remain there forever, perhaps long after the person is gone from us.
Some people understand love and how to express, practice it, how to multiply its effect. How to be true friends and exceptional lovers. Through the years of our lives we touch and are touched by many people but when we meet the lovers in life we are forever changed. The force within them, love, is the greatest force in the universe.
They are the people who know how to give and receive love. The ones who just seem to know how to encourage us or simply how to listen to us when we need a sounding board. They are not distant or uncaring during the times we aren't on top of the world, but the world is on top of us. They are the ones we can tell any dark secret to and know that they won't judge us but will still love us. They are the people who have no hidden agendas and give us their love simply because it is their nature to love and to support others. We carry their influence forever in our hearts and on our lives.
I've always felt there are two basic kinds of people, the givers and the takers. The givers are often taken advantage of and devalued but the givers are the ones who shape lives and hearts and make this earth a better place. The takers take and use to get what they want and to achieve what they feel is success. They may reach the top of the ladder they choose to climb but they are shallow and soon forgotten. Lovers, givers are unforgettable and their memory is carried forever in the hearts they have left their footprints on. Even with the suffering it sometimes brings, I'd rather be used than a user, rather give than take. Rather take all the risks for love. If you are living in fear you will never trust. They are emotional opposites and it's impossible to embrace them both fully at one time. So the first step is to decide which one you really want in your life and which one you are damn sick and tired of.
The more times you trust, the more often you are hurt and the more likely you are to fear! It's a repeating pattern, an unending circle and what you have to decide is, is trust worth the risk or will you continue to embrace fear?
I think I've had about all of the fear I can handle for a while so I'm going to trust again and see if the risk is worth it. I think it will be, because no matter how much pain I've been through I don't want to become a distrustful, hard hearted, cynical person... with no love to share with anyone. A little trust, common sense and weighing of actions goes a long way toward defeating fear. And really who wants to feel fearful? It's not a pleasant feeling, not conducive to a joyful or productive life. I'd rather embrace trust, even if it's risky because fear is just too ugly to hold on to very long.I can only be myself and if that's not good enough for anyone then so be it! I won't change my thoughts and ways ever again to win someone's approval or love.
Once you start bending and compromising on who you are, it's never ending and it's never enough to please or impress the one who is demanding change. I think I'm worth loving, just like I am. If one does not think so then they shall find someone else to change, I'll only be a constant disappointment to them. Some people never realize how beautiful another person is, because they want to mold them to fit their own idea of perfection. There is no perfection, only the beauty of humanity in all its imperfection. I'm not perfect but I'm not ashamed of being me...
Please don't break my heart, handle it with utmost care. Be honest and tell me what you feel about us.
I am sorry to say this despite we never met each other, my heart beats stronger for you and I believe in my feelings.
Communication means a lot in a relationship, try as much as you can to write always.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Waiting to read from you.
Hugs and kisses!

I want to tell you more about my job, you need to have an idea of what am doing down here as my future partner, my sister, my lover, my best/special friend and my mother. My job is centered on Re-

Concerning my job and what I've been doing down here, we are Re-constructing/Amending roads and pot-holes in a remote village along Owerri, Port Harcourt road, Imo State, Nigeria. There are local
construction company down here, but with local standard. The company that awarded me the contract, prefer more standard job. I asked why they awarded it to me instead of a local construction
company in the country, I was told that their job always end up half way and after much effort put in a project, they still find leakages and more potholes, that was why they decided to do it internationally
ordered by the Federal Government. Sweetie, I will tell you more about my job when I come over to your Country.

Sweetie, I know I don't call or send you sms, or even give you all the attention you need for now, but I beg you to understand my situation down here, the country it not safe at all, I need to rush off and leave this place as soon as possible. I don't even have time for myself, I promise to give you everything you need when we meet, please always remember me in prayers.

He said he will come to see me... his latest email....
My Early Morning Rose,
How are you doing my Queen? I got all your emails, I found myself rolling on the floor, while laughing myself out, you are so funny my dear, wish I am seeing you face to face. I had a hectic weekend, trying so hard to conclude the project before Wednesday this week.
I would be paying off all my local laborers by tomorrow, their services are no longer required, since I've almost come to the end of the project. Is it ok to book my flight this Friday? I need to know if its ok with you, before booking my flight. I want you to know its not necessary to get work leave, I can stay in my hotel room and we'll always see whenever you get back from work.
I will let you know what I will wear on the day of my departure, for easy recognition at the airport. I will book a hotel online. Honey, if you can't get an official leave from your work place, don't worry......We can always see whenever you get back from work, Is that ok with you?
This is the name you'll write on the board you'll carry while waiting for me. GERALD TELIDIS TAHIL. Do you need to write my name on the board? Or you can recognize me just like that.
I am coming over to meet you face to face, formalize our relationship, after which we would meet you family immediately and conclude our marriage plans only if we find each other interesting/compatible.
I have posted all his email... Liar and a Con artist... I am glad that someone has started this thread on the internet... THANK YOU SO MUCH...
Well, on the first phone call, I told him that your voice doesn't match your picture so he disconnected me, in first 30 seconds...!!!
Than second phone call, I asked him.. What is this accent and where are you from... as you said in your email... you are part Greek and part Indian, who lives in Chicago...
However, your accent is not Greek, or Indian or American??? So he disconnected me again... in less than 45 seconds...
... I guess, in his next email he will be asking me for the money!!!
Certainly, he will try to but ONE THING NO ONE GETS MONEY FROM ME!!!!!
As soon as he asks for money, I would stop immediately... But now I don't have to wait for that... I will not respond to his emails...
However, I am glad that we found all his emails posted on internet and thank you all for that...
I am GLAD that I am saved from the troubles....
I'm soo happy he is once again frustrated after all his efforts to con!!! He will en up as a ruin, I can't wait that day!
Thanks for your support...
I will leave him to his Karma... He will Pay for it...
I will not think of any thing but All of You who saved me and BIG THANK YOU.
I did invest my emotions in this scammer, but, I stopped right away as soon as I found out about him yesterday afternoon.
Thank you for youre contribution in this thread and im very sorry
that you have met an scammer online,but as you said you have
saved youre self from lot of truobble,and dont ever respond if he
tries to contact you again,block this scammer by changing emailaddy
and youre phonenumber is the best now.
here is an link how scammers look for real please take an look!!
Actually, I was thinking of beating him at his own game and ask for the money and see what he has to say???
Or it might be dangerous to play with fire?
And I am not worried about email or phone no... I am not going to change it; he cannot do anything and will give up, eventually.
Can you start Gerald Tahil Thread please...?
As he approached me as Gerald Tahil... so I can contribute to that as well...
Thanks Once Again...
I added Gerald Tahil to Scammer's list... his pictures are already on the website... so i wouldn't worry to post it...
Moreover, I spoke to a man from UK his voice was just like Gerald Tahil too, that was late Nov. 2009... So I was doubtful to start with ... and his name is Gregory Gilson... and he asked me for 250,000 USD... in first week... when i said no, he asked me to send his son a gift of 600 USD, has the same story of dead wife and son living with Grandma etc...
Immediately, i stop contact with him and in 2 weeks i met this scammer so I think, he is the same guy with different info... I have a gut feeling... and his phone no was 44-70 XXX something like that...
Please post that photo on that thread,because the admin can also to descide
not to publish the thread ,it is important to start an new thread with an photo
it is easier for all to recognize the scammer and search for more information.
Im not sure if you can do that anymore,but please write an mail to the admin
email@example.com if it dont work out and explain why you didnt put
an photo,so he understands and also send the picture with the mail so im sure
it will work out in that way.
That 44 nr is an fake UK number ,they use that to lure victims that they are in the
UK instead of Nigeria,and it is usrely they very same scammer also who has contacted
you ore another accomplices ,scammers work many times with other scammers in gangs
so im sure it has to do with that scammer also.
Scammers ask money for anything,from food to medicinbills,hotellbills whatever they
can find,there is no limits what they can ask money for.I know i have been in that situation once my self.
regards //Miss Marple//
anonymous from United States
Jeff Samuel wrote exact same letters to me..... Ha Ha we got him... - SA
There is a delay, I feel so depressed and worried again....I am so so sorry for stressing you out with my problems, but I just need you to understand the kind of situation I got myself into at the moment........As they say, Marriage is for better for worst and nothing good comes so easy. I can't really tell why we need to suffer all this hardship before we meet each other, something else came up....The bank requested some vital document before the account opening and transfer of my inheritance fund can be approved, I wish I had a way to raise the necessary funds now and pay off the charges as required by them and come over to meet you.
I am really sorry for the delay, It's non of my fault honey, I am really working very hard down here to break the distance but finance seems to be of a problem to me....The status of the situation now is:
The bank needs me to withdraw all the contract duplicate documents from the Federal High Court Of Nigeria and deposit to them to enable the approval and success of the contract inheritance fund transfer into my account and to withdraw the documents will cost me about $3225USD............I feel like forfeiting the contract payment but I will look like a coward, but if I had a way to clear all this problems between now and Monday, the first thing I will do is scan all my contract documents to you before I come over to avoid problems.....As I write to you now, my eyes are heavy with tears, I don't know what to do....
I gotta go.
Always remember that someone down here really loves and cares for you despite we never met each other. I will not let you down I swear to God.
