Just thought I'd write you a short note to tell you how much I enjoyed chatting with you Today, I can't remember when I had a more pleasant time with a woman my heart cherish. Everything felt so natural, and you were very easy to talk to. It's hard for me to figure what it is about you that attracts me so. I suppose it might be the combination of your great sense of humor, your charming personality. Whatever it is, I can sense its presence. You could call it chemistry, or better yet, the possibility that we are on the same wavelength.
I really hope that our first meeting would never be the last because I felt very special when I was chatting with you. I truly want to give our friendship a chance to grow into something special.
Well, I guess I've said enough for the time being, have a sweet night rest, hopefully, I'll Love to chat with you again. Take a good care of yourself. Can't wait again to talk to you at messanger. Bye

I have been talking with him for a few weeks now and just noticed the diiference in his profile which said he was 45 and had 1 child to what he told me which was he is 55 with 2 boys, that got me looking for him on line and i found these emails from him and yes he did send me the same email. What i don't see is when did he scam someone and what did he do? I have more pics of him with his kids. I don't know where to post them

Hello merci, You ask good questions. Here are the answers:

1. The photos are not photos of the person you are receiving emails from.
2. The person you are getting emails from is in either Nigeria or Malaysia, not Los Angeles or where ever he claims.
3. The children in the photos are not children of the person you are emailing.
4. If he has sent you the exact same email messages (scripts) as are posted by Spook, that means he is not really in a relationship with you. He is sending scripted emails to get further involved with you.

What romance scammers do is keep sending email messages to keep you on the hook. Eventually he will ask you for money to help him get out of some kind of trouble. I particularly don't like these scammers because they take money from their victims AND they take people's emotions and dash them on the floor, they then will ask you to send more money.

For now it seems innocent and fun. For the scammer it is very serious and he will go to a lot of lengths to get to your money.

Regarding the photos, instructions for posting photos are found in a link in my signature line. Be sure to deface the photos so they cannot be picked up by another scammer. Also blank out the faces of the children in the photos as they are innocent and should not have their photos exposed this way.

Thank you.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

I really need help to post these pictures. It all seems so difficult to me. I don't know how to write on a pic and i don't know how to blend out the faces of the children. I have his profile from netlog and his email that states he has 2 children and not one as the profile says. Also showing his age difference. That i would like to post but don't want to post the wrong things here.

Legionlady14; I met this Ben Stiller on Facebook also in January 2014. We communicated back and forth, as he was leaving for Cypress with his 2 boys. After he got there he asked to borrow $550 ,cause they wouldn't take American Express Checks. Which I knew was not true. He then preceeded to need money for more building supplies and wanted me to send him $850, after I refused to send him the $550. I never sent him any money. I figured out his scheme form the start. I blocked him and I see he is still at it. More than one woman at a time. So you are not alone.

When I met him, he was getting ready to go to Nigeria to work on the construction for a hotel. Taking his 2 boys with him b eca use he could not get anyone to watch them. He was suppose to be there for only 3 weeks. He tried to get me to buy him an i-phone and send it to him so he could buy building supplies to finish his hotel project. Poor thing, he ran out of money :( . Then he wanted to know if the boys could come back to the U.S. and stay with me until he returned to the States. He probably would have asked me to buy the tickets.
I assume he is still over there.
