Ricardo is in Nigeria...? He claims to be in contract exportation of oil. He needs money to make up for the discrepancy in origional cost of container of oil vs. the new cost according to paperwork. Claims to have a daughter named Stella, who might be in London at school. Says he is a widower and his parents died in an accident. He is a 5' 8' Italian man, who claimed to be 6'2' on eharmoney web site. He now claims to be in trouble in Nigeria with the authorities who said that they found drugs in his oil container. Now he needs more money to get out of trouble. The authorities have taken his paperwork (passport) and his laptop computer, he claims. He is real smooth and 'loves me and he knows only me'.

He claims to be stuck in Nigeria and has no money to get home. He is such a liar, he will confess his love for you everyday until he finds you have no money to give him. DON'T SEND ANY MONEY, you will never see it again he will tell you he needs more it fell short of what he needs. It will never be enough. He has no creep with no concious.

I think I have met this White Italian man. He is claiming to be injuried in Nigeria, rubbed of his belongings, laptop, is stuck in the hospital because they took all his money. The hopsital has his past port until he pays them what is owed. He exports cars BMW matter of fact. Has a daughter named Stella-16, widow and has lost both wife and mother the same day. Claims to have house in Chicago and Family home in Kentucky. A real charmer. Going by the name of Mathew 'Matt' on myspace. Tried to talk me into sending money, one of the names he used was 'CHUKWUNTA CHINEDU' it was flagged by western union so my money didn't go through. Then I was given the name of 'Ricardo Dipego' I thought something werid so I googled the name and found this web sight. He is claiming to be 6'2 also. Nice looking man. I have photos he sent me. I have told him for a week I had no money and then he got me to feel sorry for him. So I gave in and tried.Thank god the transaction didn't go through because it was all I had.
The discreption you all gave sounds just like him.
Watch out for him because like I said he is a charmer and can say all the right things.

Unfortunately I fell for the jerks smooth talking too. Met him on eHarmony. Felt something was wrong, goggled him and found this. I've actually been playing him for a little bit to get back at him. Goes by the name of Michael Dipego now and has a daughter Kate. Kate is in the hospital. Didn't get as far as him asking for money but I knew it was coming. If you want more updated info look on this site under Michael Dipego.

SS# 402-04-2947 ( I was given this to do a check on him to see if he was for real or not)

Names given to send money:
Chukwunta Chinedu

This last one was the last name given and was given to send money, food and to hear about Matt while he was in Jail in Enugu.
Email address:
Phone number: Matt’s phone.. hahaha 0112348038081556

Same address given for all the names to send money. Told not to send it western union online but at al location. Because the first name given was flagged by western union and the second one I searched the name and came up with the scam website. I posted a comment on that site on 9-4. I confronted Matt about what I found. He called and was crying saying it wasn’t him and I should take him for his word. Talked me into sending 100 western union on 9-5-08.
He also contacted me on and invited me to join his page. He is also listed on under the school of Jones Metroplitan in Chicago.. (As a new member to the school page)
Other myspace web pages I have found linking to him by names given and even looking up my own name.
Matthew 49 Louisville KY (Blk Man) Last log in 4/6/08
Matt 40 Louisville KY Same picture used in the one he contacted me on.
~~~M~~~ Matt 40 Chicago IL. (the one he used to contact me)

I have found other myspace profile but haven’t gotten their links yet, but have them saved on my profile as favorites.
He said he was drawn to me. That his daughter and him were playing on myspace and she found my profile and said “How about her.” Something in his heart stopped when he seen me. Talked since July 9th at first on myspace and then on Yahoo Messenger and yahoo emails. He was wanting to start on messenger really fast but I didn’t have my own computer at first. But after I got one, he was on there everyday waiting for me to sign on after work. Said “You belong to me.” “You are mine forever and always” “I will never go away.”
He sent me lost of really nice lovely romantic emails. I feel him (It) faster then I would have and had anyone else. I have a major trust issue with men and most of them don’t get me that fast face to face. He said “I love you and I will never break your heart.” We talked about everything in life and our lives. I fell in love with him and trusted him.
He stopped talking to me two weeks ago (as Matt anyway) when he was taken away to jail because he couldn’t pay the hospital bill.
He was in the hospital the day after he got from the UK to Nigeria; robbed of all his money to get the BMW cars shipped there out of customs. His laptop, luggage and everything was gone. He was shot in the hand and hit over the head. He called me that morning said he was in the hospital and he needed money; that was labor day weekend. I had no money to send him but he kept talking to me on the phone and then soon one of the doctors let him use his laptop so he could email and IM me because the doctor knew how much he loved me and missed me. He still asked for money for food, the hospital wasn’t feeding him and he needed it to pay his bill so he could get out go to the bank, get the cars out of customs and then go home. We had an argument on the 4th of Sept. Over the whole scam ordeal I had found on the internet after he gave me names of people to send money to.. He won the argument and I fell for his lies and sent him 100.00. It was all I had and all I could afford to send. The money issue clamed down for just alittle while and then he was on the street, hospital kicked him out kept his past port. No he need money for food and a place to stay. I didn’t send any but I kept him believing I was going to try to get him some. I knew it was a game and a scam I wanted to talk and find out what was happening and what he was doing. So I kept talking to him. He told me to contact friends and family of mine to see if I could get him some money to help with food. I told him I contacted them but I didn’t I just kept his game going. He talked me into calling an ex boyfriend of mine. Given the situation he knew that would put me into he wanted me to try anyway. I was injured badly, got no money and he seemed to only care for a little while then it was back to the money issue again. Then two weeks ago he told me he was going to go to jail if he didn’t pay his hospital bill he had till Sunday morning to get the money. I told him I would try and get some. But come Saturday night I emailed him and told him I had no money and I had worked for this farmer to make some but the farmer changed his mind on when he would pay me. I just told him that I work but I really had a fun weekend with my girls. He emailed me and told me that if I ever wanted to hear from him to contact the Chinedu guy and gave me his email address. I have gotten emails from Chinedu in the beginning but then when I asked him to get some information about Matt from Matt I never got a reply. Saturday night I was playing around on the computer and decided to try and IM Matt and use the ID I used to use on dating sites when they wanted to go IM Yahoo. He started to talk to me like I was someone he was trying to pick up. Didn’t recognize me or act like he did. I had to leave and cut the conversation short and then he said he would be on later to talk to me. He wasn’t so I emailed him using the other email address. Then the next morning I get an email from his daughter saying stuff and calling me mom. Sunday she also was IM me on yahoo. I know it wasn’t his daughter well at least I hope it wasn’t because she doesn’t spell or speak good grammar for an American 16yr old. The things he was saying Saturday night it was Matt I have had the same conversation with him before.

He sent the best love emails and then I find out on the site that they are copy pasted. I sent pictures of myself to him and it makes me wonder how they are being used. And if he had copied some of my family photos that are on myspace. I also sent him poems that I had written myself, who knows if he is using them on women now. What kind of man steals money and breaks women hearts and messes with their mind, emotions and their lives.
