How are you doing? Telling you about me,I really don't know where to start from about myself but if you want t know from the first time of exchanging emails then i will,I am Greg Phillips,a petroleum engineer from Sal-Ford Manchester in the UK and also a widower. I lost wife and 2 lovely kids in a car crash April 2007.I tell you my dear friend its not been easy for a young man like me to loose his wife and 2 kids in less than two minutes,On that fateful day Friday April 13th 2007,my wife was going to drop the kids at school because they woke up late so they missed their school bus.while she was driving she lost control and veered off to the other lane,the car somersaulted thrice and before help came their way,they passed away on getting to the nearest hospital. Well, i will not bore you with my sad story but since then life has not been easy for me and my only surviving daughter but one thing i know is that Jehovah has a reason for everything so who am i to question Jah,maybe Jehovah has a better plan in life for me.

After that incident i visit orphanage home every weekend just to show the kids love because i see them as my family now,they really make me happy and i will do anything to help any child that does not have a home,i don't care the color.

My hobbies are reading,playing golf,lawn tennis and swimming, i dispise lie and i believe in the truth. I don't go out too much, always home after working hours studying with my daughter and putting her in the right manner in which she will be very close to Jehovah. My daughter is 15years old and her name is Cindy, i believe i have said everything about my life but if there is anything specific you would like to know, please do me the honor of asking.

What do you like your ideal man to be?

I hope you write soonest.

Jah be with you

Greg

scammers, scammers, scammers will do anything and everything to get at your money. this guy contacted me on yet another religious dating site. to register/create a profile,you have to be? active in faith they say? to log on, and be able to contact other members, you have to enter info that only those active have access to. dont understand how this guy got hold of this information...it just shows how sick and desprate they are. this dating site has no connection/link to the organisation....the organisation is against online dating. i am so so sick and tired of these scammers.

Hello Dear,

How are you doing? I feel the same as well. You said you would send some recent picture but there was none in the email. Well, what would you like to know about Cindy? She is a cute little girl who always take care of her father, she is very sweet and fun be with, she is being home schooled and she doesn't like being around too many people. But i know you will like her when you meet her. So, what have you been up to? If i may ask, what do you wish to get out of this friendship?

Here is the next email from this scammer

Hello dear,

I couldn't help but smile when reading your email. How are you doing and how was your weekend? I am so thrilled by your kind words and i appreciate the care and love you have for my daughter and myself. You know what they say, money can't buy love. You have everything yet miss the one true thing in life(LOVE) I bet there are guys and girls out there who wants to fool around and play games, not knowing the clock is ticking. I am happy but not too happy, i need a woman that i will un-conditionally love and care for, some one who will love me as well as my daughter. You seems like a very nice lady and i think i will be happy to spend the rest of my life with you as a family. I promise to love and cherish you like you ought to and show you how special you are. What do you think we should do from this point on?

Awaiting your answer,

Greg

By getting their victim on the phone, scammers can speed things right up and more easily gauge how pliable their victim is, money requests will begin when they believe they have their hooks in far enough that you will send them money, after being told by his victim that she will not talk on the phone until after they meet, he is still asking for the phone number

Another possible reason for his insistence on teh number is that part of his scam may be to contact you as a doctor or lawyer to tell you that he is in trouble and needs your help, without the phone number he needs to find another way and that just doesn't work in with his plans

Hey,

How are you doing? I am so very much interested in our relationship, it's just that some times things get to be so tight with work and my daughter but i will always reply to you as i have already told my daughter that i am communicating with you and she is very happy that i have found some one. I know it's your principle not to give out your phone number, but if you really want this to work out for us we need to communicate via telephone also i am sorry for the inconvenience but that's the truth. I will be eaiting for your email.

Have a nice weekend.

Greg

In order to help the scam along, this scammer has created an email address, apparently for his daughter, of course, the same scammer is writing.

From [email protected] 41.205.168.79 Nigeria*
address: Plot 1261, Bishop Kale Close, off Saka Tinubu
Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria


Hello,

How are you doing? Thanks for writing. Well, i must say i am glad you write to me and the reason i haven't responded was i wasn't sure because you can't be too sure. I am a honest little girl as my father and i like spending time with dad playing board games like Chess and Scrabble. Before we talk any further please tell about you, do you have kids, boy or girl. Do you wish to marry my dad, if yes i will accept you and for as long you are happy with him and him with you.

I have to go do my home work now.

I read your email over and over again, i keep saying to myself, if this is really going to work out, you have the key to the relationship and i will do anything to show you that i so much wish for us to happen and start living our lives. I really feel we can make one happy family together. I am sorry for keeping you waiting i never wanted or intended to do that but as you know, work and work and during those times i am away, you are all i think of and some times i wonder why there such distance between us but i believe things do happen for a reason and i believe there is a reason for us. How was your weekend? I hope you had fun, anything special?

Talk soon.

Greg

Scammers will rarely write their own poetry, here is a great example of why they dont

i need u to b ma strength, when m weak
i need u to b ma voice, when i don't speak..
i wish u could b ma eyes when i don't see
and u b the one to bring the best in me...


i use to lie awake at night
before u came ma life was black and white
i still remember the first look of you in ma mind
which was the reason i went blind...

i luv u so much as i never did before
day by day ,night by night m increasing it more
u have no clue how much i luv u ....
god cud b the one 2 say what exactly i feel for u...

give me all ur sorrow take ma happiness
hope u will understand the limit of my madness
in ma life u r ma only desire
u have set ma heart on fire....

i intend to make u laugh until u cry...
so dat u will call me till the day i die...
what should i say RUBY, your so fine
hey! i just wanna make u mine...


Compare that poem to these 2 that the scammer sent at the same time in seperate emails

Echo's of a love,
not known to mankind.
Always in the background,
hidden whispers,
keep this love going round and round.

Meanings that reach deep into my soul.
in my mind will last through out time.
A love so deep, through out the ages to keep.
Souls on a pathway,
glide together as if children at play.

Whispers in my mind tell me,
love is a treasured Jewel.
One of a kind, a rare song,
waiting to be played.
When two destiny's mold, as if clay.
One beacons to the other,
as a Lighthouse on a stormy sea.
Whispers in my mind bring thoughts,
of you and me.


Just a quiet walk at twilight
By a winding country stream
Amid the leaves and flowers
And the setting sun's last beams
There I spied her in the clearing
Sitting quietly by a tree
And the vision wea entrancing
Was she real or just a dream

Her flaxen hair was long and flowing
And her eyes an autumn green
And her skin of summered beauty
Soft and golden unto me
Oh, she had the way about her
Such a vision to be seen
But as I looked I asked myself
Is she real or just a dream

Many times I've walked at twilight
As the final light of day
Slowly vanished ore the hilltop
To a distant far away
Yet I'd never seen a vision
Such as this has never been
So I pinched myself and questioned
Is she real or just a dream

Softly I approached her
And she smiled so graciously
In her eyes I noticed something
And that something spoke to me
Such a lovely invitation
Come and join me by the stream
But I asked as I sat next to her
Are you real or just a dream

As we walked she spoke of paradise
And of songs and poetry
Of such lovely apparitions
As you find in fantasies
As such lips of soft sweet beauty
She was mesmerizing me
And I asked as she kissed me softly
Is it real or just a dream

In my arms she nestled quietly
As she shared her love with me
And the sweetness of her kisses
Were the stuff of boyish dreams
On and on and ore and over
She became a part of me
but I woke as came the morning
Sad my heart twas just a dream

After a 2 week break, this scammer comes back with more lies;

Hello,

How are you doing? I have been out of town and i just returned and i just rushed to my computer to email you, as i was thinking of you the whole time. I was away on an emergency business trip that was why i didn't had the time to email you notifying you of my trip. But i am back now and i know you wont be too happy with me but i am honestly sorry for the whole thing. I miss you, what have you been up to?
