Name: James Forsen
Address: James claims to be from Orlando, Florida, US
Other Comments: James contacted me on match.com and quickly took me offline to texting and emailing week of august 5th, 2013. He is very convincing -- he keys in on what you value most in a partner-- his English is fluent, except for some spelling mistakes. He claims to be a widower, age 55, with a 10-yr old daughter. I was able to uncover his scam within a week. Thank goodness!
Here is content from his email:
How are you doing today and what have you been up to ? I am glad you made time to send me an email telling me about yourself . Its my turn to tell you about myself that way you will get to know and understand me for who I am and what I stand for . So this is how I am going to start , am James Forsen as you know already and offcourse I am a widower and I live with my daughter in my own house here in Orlando (Florida), my 10yr old girl means the world to me and offcourse she is my number one priority in life. I've learned many lessons in life, and especially over the last few years, but mainly that we should not take life for granted. What we have is less important than who we have. My daughter is my number one priority in life and my free time is limited between her and work. Guess that is my main reason for trying this internet dating thing. I like eating healthy, though my schedule makes this challenging at times. I am physically fit and intend to stay that way for as long as possible. Life is too short to waste any of it, but I also like to relax .I am honest and respectful, and offcourse I have great respect for humanity. I'm a positive person, have a bright outlook on life, enterprising, full of energy. I can be versatile, adventurous and eager to expand my range beyond what i am comfortable and familiar with. I consider myself to be an easy going and simple being and love to meet interesting people that can distinguished a man of quality from a shallow being that only look at the facial fact of life, because it is better to know people that bear their soul and mind out, than come across people of a myopic sight of looking for beauty within the surface instead of what lies in the deepest part of heart.
I live by the golden rule which is by treating others as I would want to be treated in return. I am quiet, until you get to know me. I have opinions, but usually prefer to keep them to myself. I am well traveled due to the nature of my work and most of all I am a very humble being. I don't like dramas and I more importantly I don't like dead relationships (I mean relationship without honesty , sincerity, communication, lack of respect for each other etc). I have stayed in one relationship all my life, and I know exactly what I am looking for, I want long lasting love, love that does not wear out with years, or rather love which does not sleep once in a while or with seasons. When I commit, I don’t look back, and offcourse I will rather prefer to be alone and be happy than to be with someone and not happy , so therefore I consider happiness as something important to me , thus happiness that will make me wear my smile throughout the day. I am self-employed / entrepreneur thus I am in to buying and selling of gem stones(Gold, Diamond, Silver) and I have been doing this work for a very long time and I really love my job; I was introduced to this work by my late Uncle who I lived with when I came to the US. He taught me everything that I know today and yes I can say that he made me who I am today and everything that I have , I owe it to him. May his soul rest in perfect peace. Some of my hobbies include cooking, entertaining, gardening, cleaning and just making my home beautiful. I am told that I have a great sense of humor but I can be a little laid back sometimes - I mean am not a party animal, I love my space and boundaries and I love it when I just spend time with my daughter , for a picnic, drive out, eating out, shopping or holiday. I am simple and easy to get along with. Ooh yes, and I am 'hyper allergic' to quarrels, shouts, swearing and abuses – I can’t live with that, not even for a second. I am very modest and I value peace and communication. I love to laugh but can be assertive when I need to. I am interested in knowing you better.and am also looking for someone whom I can build my dreams with and whom I can help in building hers, someone focused and full of love and who believes it’s possible to love again- even better. I believe love is not always about finding the right person but also about creating a perfect relation in trust, love, honesty and caring for one another .. I know I have not already shared this with you but I thought I could put it in writing that way you will understand me for who I am. You have a great personality that I admire and would like to know more about you. I dont want you to feel I am forcing myself on your or pressuring you in any way , but I know what I want and when I see what I want ... I go for it .. From your email I think we share alot in common and offcourse I look forward to getting to know you more and more. Hope you having a great day and you take care.... '

James Forsen aka James Hansen aka Andre aka Henry Moerke
uses phone with area code from Utah, 435 with the digits 393-4951 and the name comes up as Henry Moerke
James Forsen claims to be a geologist, seller and buyer of gems, does not know that a pearl is not a gem.
says he travels to Africa and Australia
says he lives with hi 10-yr-old son or the son is in boarding school. He says he is a widower.
but he is also James Hansen who says the same thing except that he has a 10-yr-old daughter
In one message James Forsen said his son was in boarding school but in another he sang him to sleep at 9:so on a school night. right.
He contacted me with two different names from Catholic Singles. In both cases he said he was from Norway but James Forsen claims to be Irish and that his parents died when he was young so he moved to Oslo.
This guy wants your picture. Do not send and do not fall for him.
In one picture, date 2004, he is thin with dark hair. In several others he is with the same girl pictured on this site, I think, but with glasses. Maybe he photoshopped it because he does not look like the James Forsen picture from St. Louis, who may actually be a real guy. The pictures still show dark hair but receding and short.
He says he bought a house in Tampa instead of London to establish his business as a geologist.
I actually sent a photo. He says 'beautiful' a lot, 'nice smile' etc.
Here is the picture he sent as James Forsen, aka Godson59 on Catholic Singles saying he is a geologist with a 10-year-old son who has one number with a Brigham city Utah area code. He actually sent other pictures at about the same time ad James Hansen with a 10-year-old daughter. Then he used a texting number with a txt_me314 number and that number came up as registered to Henry Moerke. And he called himself Andre in one message. Thanks to this and other scam sites I could double check him as I grew suspicious over the first two days. I kept chatting with him after I knew but he just got more and more irritable when I did not send photos.
anonymous from Venezuela
Here is another of the identities used by this scammer, I wrote the same e mails than others, I found out after four weeks thank god
