Information on romance scams and scammers.
#43304 by Chris Fuller Wed Dec 29, 2010 6:46 am
The person calling himself Christopher Corlett is not a genuine man looking for love; he is a scammer. He does not really live in the USA; his IP address 175.145.84.125 shows that he is actually located in Malaysia.

He pretends to fall in love with all the women he is writing to - and then asks them to send him money. He does not really fall in love with anybody, and he is not truly seeking a relationship or marriage - it is all a lie, a scam to trick women into sending him money.

Please do not believe him, nor other scammers like him. Romance scammers like this write to many many women, faking love with all of them in order to steal money from them.

From: Christopher Corlett <[email protected]>

Hello Dear
How are you?. I do not speak nor understand

Chinese but i'm seriously interested in having

an asian woman as a friend and much more. We

might have differences between us but for me

that is not a barrier, what matters to me is a

good heart and a good woman. I love so much the

way you smile. Your smile in infectious and I

cant help it but to write you and tell you

this. I am interested in getting to know you

and being a good friend and much more. With

regards to the distance between us for now, for

me I think distance should be no barrier

because its just a temporary thing. Like they

say, where there is a will , there is always a

way. We can work it out and close the distance

in no time. Love recognizes no barriers. It

jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls,

crosses oceans to arrive at its destination,

full of hope. We come to love not by finding

the perfect person, but by learning to see an

imperfect person perfectly

Just because you know someone doesn't mean you

love them, and just because you don't know

people doesn't mean you can't love them. You

can fall in love with a complete stranger in a

heartbeat, if God planned that route for you.

So open your heart to strangers more often. You

never know when God will throw that pass at

you.A good friend is someone we can count on,

as well as being so much more. A friend is

someone with whom we can relax and just hang

out, have fun and share our innermost thoughts,

deep dark secrets, lofty and noble goals, or

our hopes, joys, and fears.

I have my colleague who is married to an

Asian woman and they have kids and happy family

and are getting along so well and I really

admire them . I want to have the good

experiences of a married life that my colleague

is enjoying with his Asian woman. He also

assisted me in registering on the site . In

just a few words, I'm single, pretty

friendly,the listening and understanding type,

caring, loving, honest,easy-going,simple but

fashionable,romantic,adventurous but yet honest

about my opinions. I'm also generally a happy

person. Very rarely is a smile not affixed to

my face. I suppose that is why I love bouncing

around the globe exploring and researching

which makes me fond of my chosen carrier(I'm a

consultant virologist).

I have and live a full, diverse and exciting

life . Being single's been great, but now it's

time to share life (at its fullest!) with the

right person. I'm handsome, independent,

creative, worldly, sophisticated,

professionally ambitious, and even a bit cocky

at times (self-confident?). I work hard so I

can have fun and afford my "toys", but I like

nothing better than goofing off and walking the

beach (with you!). I'm always up for going out,

great restaurants, hanging with good, loyal

friends, meeting new people, and having new

experiences and adventures. If it's possible to

be spontaneous AND prepared, it's me. I usually

have a positive outlook on life, and don't like

to be around people who are "downers". I'm a

great friend that can be counted on, and I need

the same from those around me. I think my

friends would say my keen observations gives me

a great sense of humor. I'm passionate about

lots of things (including just plain passion!),

and while I have my strong opinions on many

things, I'm usually open-minded. In general, I

try to keep an attitude that, while life might

not always be perfect, you have to either enjoy

what you've got, or try to change it and make

things better! I have attached a few of my

pics. I will tell you more details about myself

in the next mail. I would also want you to tell

me more about yourself. I look forward to your

reply.Thanks

Christopher

Hello
How are you doing, hope you are fine? I am very

happy that we are getting to know each other

better gradually and also knowing about your

background.
Well I really want you to know much more about

me because I think this will at least give you

a picture and an idea of the kind of person

that I am even with both of us distant apart

for now. I have written below with all

sincerity some of my core and real values and

attributes and I hope you can take time to go

through it because I feel it will go along way

Unconditional Love and Respect - I am the type

of person who gives my whole heart to my

partner. I am thoughtful, considerate and

affectionate. I like to be free to show my love

and not have that stifled (of course, I behave

in public! lol). I like to show my affection -

hugs, kisses, cuddling. My partner will have no

doubt that I love her.

Loyalty - I am very loyal and trustworthy in my

partnerships. I am loyal to a fault, which

sometimes gets me in trouble but would explain

my "little shred of hope" for the fairy tale

romance.

Fun and Laughter - I love to have fun and laugh

- it's good for the soul. I can be very

spontaneous and goofy but serious when need be.

I'm not silly all of the time but I do like to

joke around and have fun. Life is so boring

without laughter

ABOUT MY SELF.

1. My country of origin?
Well, i was born in Oregon, my Dad is from here

,while my mum is originally from Turkey .

2. Have I ever been married?
No, I have never been married

3. Do you have kids?
I do not have kids but I wish to have kids

someday.

4. About my family back ground
I am the only child who grew up in a

respectable home. When I was 4yrs old my dad

passed away from 7 years battle with lung

cancer infection. His death was so painful and

really affected both me and my mom because dad

was really a loving and caring dad to me and

loving husband to mum. Roughly two years after

his death, I relocated with mum back to Ankara

in Turkey where mom is originally from and

where she has her families. I completed my high

school and University education(B.Sc and M.Sc)

over there in Turkey. Mom had decided that I

completed my education in Turkey instead of the

States because mom did not want me to be

exposed to the morally corrupt environment back

in Oregon(sounds so funny) and also due to

security reasons being her only child because

there used to be bullies back in those days in

the neighborhood where we lived. Shortly after

completing my university education in Turkey,

my mom also died, she died of heart related

complications. I think she had been thinking a

lot since the death of my dad and this

accumulated over the years and resulted in

heart related problems which eventually took

her away from me. This period was a very

difficult one for me because I was very close

and used to her and it took me sometime to get

over her death. A year after her death I

relocated back to the US because I was not

really used to her families back in turkey.

Relocating back to the US was easy for me

because Dad was from there and by that I've

American citizenship. Due to my relocation back

to Turkey with mom after dad's death and

spending most of my life there, I do not live

and behave as a typical American does. My

English is perfect but don't have the typical

American accent. The same year that I relocated

back here, I enrolled for my PhD and I

completed it with 4 years.So far Life here has

being Interesting and at the same time

challenging.I have been lucky here and I'm

accomplished in my career. I have everything

that I wanted but no family yet


5. Telling you about my profession
I am a medical virologist by profession, I have

a PhD in Medical Virology and I'm presently

working as a consultant virologist to a few

organizations both here in the US and

Internationally; I love this science of curing

diseases and saving lives. Well, I am proud of

my accomplishments and profession, taking care

of lives has been a pretty good experience for

me.

6. What are my future plans?
Well, I am presently on my own project of a

private multi-purpose Medical research facility

here in Oregon to cater for both public and

private needs and I also want to raise a family

with a responsible woman.

7. What I like in a partner?
I have high standards but only ask for what I

believe I offer as well.I don't have a certain

criteria for women . I think everyone is

appeals to someone in their own special way. I

prefer a women who is down to earth, not stuck

up or coincided, who is smart, but can be a

goof. Beauty starts inside and rediates

outward. Most important attributes: she is

sincere, has integrity, is honest, has a great

relationship with her family, and knows how to

have a good time. Icing on the cake: she has a

great smile


8. How long have I been on this dating site?
Not quite long, I was lucky to have you on my

interest list so I decided to continue

communicating with you and see where it leads.


9. Well let me tell u every other thing you

need know about me

When in a relationship, I am quite content to

be at home working on a task or help with

cooking dinner or relaxing. My lifestyle is

usually relaxed and pretty quiet. I'm more of

an extrovert than an introvert; however, I can

hold my own at any social function. You should

also know that sometimes I can be impolite:) I

can be silly and pretty childlike, but could be

very understanding with good sense of humor

when it comes to sharing of thoughts and

ideas...

I enjoy pampering/surprising my partner, and I

also love to be pampered. Also as a result of

my growing up mostly with my mother, I dislike

with passion seeing a woman being ill-treated

by a man and one thing that I have promised

myself as long as I live on this earth is to

never lay my hands on a woman be it my wife or

any woman no matter what the condition may be.

To me any man that hits a woman is highly

irresponsible and not mature for relationship.

Some of my likes are the salty taste of lobster

simmering in a Beurre Blanc sauce, the smell of

the ocean mixed with suntan lotion on a summer

day, the cool, velvety softness of well-worn

cotton sheets on a hot summer night, the gentle

touch of a lover, the beauty of a home which

has been designed to be inviting and welcoming.

I also love listening to good Music and I also

play musical instruments. I also love going to

the beach and staying close to nature. I love

the smell of a campfire, fresh cut grass, and

horses.


Well, I hope I have been able to unveil my self

to you so you should at least have an idea of

the kind of man I am, lol. I also hope it was

not so boring for you, reading all about me...

I would also appreciate it if you could tell me

somethings about who you are, so kindly please

answer these questions as it will help me know

you better..

1. Where are you originally from
2.Do you have kids
3.Tell me about your family back ground
4.Tell me about your profession and career
5.What are your future plans if you have one
6.What would you like in a partner
7.How long have you been on this dating site
8.Feel free to tell me every other thing i

forgot to mention
I hope things work out well between you and I

and hope to chat on yahoo messenger with you

soon. Hope you have an account with yahoo?

Hope to read from you soon

With Loves from
Christopher

Welcome Vida,

This person is posted because he is an African romance scammer.
The person who wrote those letters calling himself Christopher Corlett is not the person in the photos. He is a young African man who took those pictures off the internet and is using them to pretend to be someone he is not. He is pretending to be in love with women, when he really plans to steal their money.


Look at this from his email where he describes himself.
Unconditional Love and Respect - I am the type of person who gives my whole heart to my partner. I am thoughtful, considerate and affectionate. I like to be free to show my love and not have that stifled (of course, I behave in public! lol). I like to show my affection - hugs, kisses, cuddling. My partner will have no doubt that I love her.

Fun and Laughter - I love to have fun and laugh - it's good for the soul. I can be very spontaneous and goofy but serious when need be. I'm not silly all of the time but I do like to joke around and have fun. Life is so boring without laughter


If you look at this link here, you can see that he has used the exact same words using another name too: http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=32556&p=168934

Notice how he says that his English is very good but he has an accent. He is writing that so that victims don't get suspicious when he talks to them on the phone and he does not sound like an American. His written English is NOT good, nor is it American. He makes typical mistakes we see in African writers. In some places his English is very good--that's usually where he copied and pasted it from somewhere else, like this: http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/show/126888 and http://www.famousquotesabout.com/quote/We-come-to-love/34249

There are many other things I can point out (for example, no person with a degree in virology would ever make the mistake of referring to "lung cancer infection") but in the end, it's quite clear that the person writing these letters is not a kind, generous American, but a lying thief.

This guy definitely is a liar : Dr amed frank Mark" <[email protected]>

Everbody ,please be aware ! His account on http://www.match.com is :
coolingfriend444 ([email protected])

=====================================================================
Whatever he wrote is exactly the same as others posted above :

Hello ,


Good Evening, I hope you had a blessed day and ready to go to bed. I want you to know more about me since my heart has chosen to be with you and see where it leads us to. So now that we are both interested in getting to know each other better let me try and clear up the issue on the distance. I believe that when I signed up on the site, I was very willing to throw my net as widely as possible to find what I am truly looking for, so I have discarded the barrier of state boundaries and distance to do that. I know there is quite some distance between us but I also know that as long as we both have an interest, we can make things work... Also distance does have its own advantages, for one is the way it influences that level of communication between the people involved, with distance we tend to be more vocal about things than when we are together in person.
z
I am close to my parents (I consider myself one of those lucky people who was born to loving parents), and family (yours and mine) is very important to me.

I love life and believe everything happens for a reason and how you handle challenges makes you a better person. One word to describe me is "passionate" about everything I do. I love to do things for others, working in the yard, a walk with my dog, having friends over, a soft kiss after not seeing my significant other all day, being appreciated, feeling safe in the arms of the one I love.

I am an individual that has a strong personality and tends to be proactive than laid back, but is always developing a better balance. Always speaks my opinion but is conscious of other individual's feelings. My family and friends look to me as the passionate, compassionate one as I am the one everyone looks to or goes to, to make everything all better. I have the biggest heart in the world and always will believe in forgiveness and generosity and the acceptance that others may not give back what I give but I will always maintain strength and conviction so I will never become cynical or negative.

However, coming to my family background I will like to start with the tales of my childhood. My father was a trader that deals with shoes while my mother was a college teacher. I have being a Veterinarian Doctor for 20years, and have lots to show for it.

What is critical for me in a significant other? Someone who truly believes in a partnership, being strong when I may be weak, not afraid to tell me I am full of it when I might be, being my anchor as I am when things are tough and challenging and when things are going smooth too. She’s willing to do things that she may not want to, if they are important to me and visa versa. Understanding is very important in a relationship. Someone that enjoys public displays of affection and the importance of intimacy and wants to work and play together understanding that you have to work at it to be successful and never being afraid to communicate and never going to bed angry. Am single all because I need honest and caring woman, I will make her the happiest woman on earth, and also brilliant lady can help me achieve my dreams if she has the same dream. and i don't mind your age and maybe you are divorce or widow all i want from you is true love and to spend all my life with you.

Do you have a yahoo messenger ID or MSN messenger so we can chat during your free time and, I can’t wait to chat with you, it will really help us to know more about each other. Please let me know when you are free so I can wait for u online..

I am very health conscious and workout in the gym at least four times a week and I hope you maybe share this interest in physical health, thats my secret to looking young...


you ask why am not married yet, i love to get marry but hurt i got from my last GF that we suppose to get married makes me lost hope from woman, but i was encourage by my friends to join match.com and see what God have for me.., my religion is christian and u?

Hugs and kisses,
Dr: Mark

Dear ladies,

Yes you are right he is a real scam... Dr Amed Frank Mark is a big big liar.
Beware of what he said. And I hope he stop using Christian as an excuse.
