Here is some additional info on Collin Lawson - idiot at large!
His Match ID is: jilason and he was using this email with me: [email protected]
. Phone: 514-317-8804 in Montreal. As of a week or so ago, only a portion of his email was really visible, when I asked him why, he said that he only wanted to communicate with me. Below are a few of the 'excerpts' of emails that he sent to me.
"There is something I would like to add; I know that it may be overwhelming when we meet someone new and then the excitement grows. It's almost inevitable that we share the news or feelings with our friends, colleagues or family members, but I do wish to say to you that sometimes not all good can from doing so. A friend who had shared her experience with me pertaining online dating had met a man whom she had grown to care for so much, even though they were yet to meet. She then went on to share all about her online escapades with her family who then began to meddle in their relationship; wanting to find out his background, if he made enough money, if he was of the right religion. To cut the story short, he became quite frustrated and his affection for her began to wither. I know this is a stretch and a far cry from where we are, but I suppose you get the moral of the story. My friends are aware that I registered match, and that's because they pushed me to do so; however, I won't be telling them of my progress till I believe I am in a very comfortable place to divulge any information regarding "US."
"Forgive me for not writing sooner. Just before I left the event that evening, I got a call from Nana's nurse at home saying she had fainted and was on the way to the hospital . I drove like a mad man to the hospital and I'm certain to expect a ticket from the coppers at the house anytime soon. Thank the Lord it wasn't as serious as I had imagined. The doctor said she had a minor heart attack
and she needs to take it easy from now on. I don't think I have been as frightened as I was when I received that call in a long time. Perhaps we should begin to consider voice calls as a better means of communication. Have a good day dear and know that my thoughts are with you. Cheers. "
"There's so much we don't know about each other, but I'm patiently looking forward to our first meeting. However, before then, how about a few more questions?
What's your favourite colour?
Favourite movie of all time?
When was the last time you were on a date?
Where exactly do you reside?
What are your hobbies, dislikes, pet peeves?
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
How happy are you with your appearance?
What is the one thing you like most about yourself?
What is the one thing you regret the most in your life?
Do you feel closer to your mother or father?
Do you still talk to any of your childhood friends?
Do you believe in second chances?
How do you feel about church and religion?
Are you satisfied with where you are in your life financially?
Where is your favourite vacation place to go?
Do you consider yourself outgoing?
"Hello xxxx, and please know that your kind words were greatly appreciated. Nana and I just returned home about 30 minutes ago. I stayed in her room for a little while till she fell asleep then I hurried to send you an email. It's apparent you were on my mind a lot so I'd rather not kid myself as I did boot the computer immediately I stepped into the house. I would like you to know I am attracted to the person I'm corresponding with, immensely and only meeting in person will make it all a reality. I hope...no, I pray that the feeling is mutual when we meet. Do you feel the same way or am I floating alone in the ocean?" ....lol, you're floating alone buddy.
" To share more about my past, I was married to Perpetua for 26 years, but we were together for 30. My daughter was 24 when she passed. Catherine's very much alive at 81. She was a smoker for a very long period in her life and although it's affected her health a little, she's quite the healthy woman I must say. She made the move with me, and sincerely this was her choice, as I had preferred Melbourne, in Australia. She'll probably be the liveliest female at her age that you'll know. She watches movies, probably as much as I do. She reads and is cooking half the time she's home. As for my father, although I didn't forgive him before he passed, I certainly have found peace now."
"Now I know I've been asking quite a lot of questions, and I do have one more; what is it you seek in a life-time partner?"
"I'm quite open to a fault and I dwell on sincerity. I might be a wee-bit timid, but I definitely tell it as it is. I don't keep a lot of friends, because I detest dishonest people
and the ones I have are like family to me whom I trust with everything. "
"I do wish to ask, how was your experience on match.com? Sad to say, mine was nowhere rosy, I received an extraordinary amount of emails which I thought was ridiculous since there was no way I would have been able to read 67 emails. I scanned through and thought you had a beautiful profile which is why we are corresponding now and for the record, you're the only one I'm communicating with and I hope that's the same with you. " This was actually something that made me think twice because I did not send him an email at all. The only way he would have seen my profile was by trolling the site looking for a sucker.....
I hope these emails help the next person out there figure out what a scammer looks and sounds like. One piece of advice is this: if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.!!!
