He frequents dating sites as well as places like facebook, he uses a stolen picture to lure his victims,

He will get you onto instant messenger preferably where he will quickly set his hooks into you or if he has to start emailing to continue setting his trap

He may offer you a job as a payment officer or ask you to cash his fake cheques.

He has very little scripted messages and will happily change his plans to scam you in any one of a number of ways.

If you are in contact with him, be aware he is not who he says he is and will leave you heartbroken as well as broke he may even get you into trouble with the law if you cash his fake cheques

As with many scammers, you can do a google search on the email address which will often provide proof that they are a scammer, take a look at this google search link or try doing the search for yourself
