does that PoF text mean that it would hold up in court and that its illegal for an underage girl to lie on be on that site?

The photos on that profile don't appear to be all of the same person . Also the profile states an age of 19 . Looks fake to me .

Sometimes if you drop the fake photos into www.tineye.com you will be able to figure out who is really the person in the photos with regards to these romance scams. Often they are stolen from Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites. You can try Google image search as well.

The above email is a scam using a false identity with intent to defraud.

The scammer will try to convince one to send money in advance. In exchange the scammer will promise even more money or assets will be sent in return. It is all a complete lie.

Thanks . We are all very familiar with Google and tineye searches . Reviewing the images I don't really feel that's necessary . Thanks for your input and participation on site .

This exact same thing happened to me back in May met a girl on POF and her profile states she’s 19 profile name 1katieG5. We start texting shortly after and she jumps right into asking for pictures so I sent a couple selfies and she sent a couple to me. Then out of nowhere she sends explicit photos and asked for one in return, my dumbass sends a pic (xxx) then she doesn’t reply except with the “I’m busy” texts. Then two days later I get a call from a “James Gainey” claiming to be the girl’s father telling me I was sexting his 15 year old daughter, and that his wife was livid and he would try to calm her down and make a deal. He then called stating that his “daughter” would need counseling and that it would require a police report. He then says that he’ll talk to his wife and call back shortly, several minutes go by and he calls back stating that he and his wife decided that it was mine and Katie (the daughter)’s Job to pay for the counseling and demands that I keep in contact by saying “I’m still here” and that I would be paying 50% of the bill, and the bill was said to be $3876 My Dumbass self was still terrified so I stated that i couldn’t pay 50% right away and he told me to send it in increments of $500 to someone he claimed to be his mother in law down in SC by the name of Sarah Lane, through a Walmart moneygram order. I only just saw this site and received a text from him saying he has to send the money back and that there’s no other way but to go to court. Help me!!! Is this the same scam?!?!?

The guy texted me again saying his daughter attempted suicide a couple nights ago and I saw this same line in a couple different stories from other victims. This guy is pissing me off I’m definitely talking to a lawyer in the next couple of days, reporting it to the police, and reporting it to the FBI. This guy needs to be caught.

‭+[Removed - AJ]‬ This number just tried to call/text me, I believe it to be part of the scam since it came from North Carolina and they already knew my name, can someone confirm? Or just reassure me that this number is fake or part of this guys sick system?

Please do not post random phone numbers unless you have actual evidence it is connected to the scam. We don't have any way to tell if phone numbers are part of the scam or not.

If you are getting an increase in unknown callers then it would probably be best to change your number. If the scammer has no way of contacting you then he will move on to other victims.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
