Other Comments:
He goes by the name of Ben Fischer Ridwan. He is a disgusting, nasty scammer to preys on innocent, good women. He finds gullible women on dating sites and pretends to be an engineer who has just been awarded a huge road construction job in Nigeria. He never provides any information about himself, but says he is German, born in Bamberg county, Bavaria, Germany. He claims to be an orphan who lost his mother and father at age 6.

He makes the women believe he is genuine and sends the same email to all other women saying he had a work accident in Nigeria and one of his laborers was injured and in trying to help him he damaged his cell phone. He says he is worried for his life there and needs a phone right away and requests the woman he is writing to, who now thinks he is genuine and trustworthy, to send him an Iphone immediately!!!! PLEASE DON'T FALL INTO THIS TRAP OF FEELING SORRY FOR HIM AND SENDING HIM A PHONE OR ANY OTHER MONEY REQUESTS!!!! He will make you believe that his sole intention is to finish the job in Nigeria and to come and visit you as he says 'come to your country and meet you face to face'. He promises to pay back for the phone. His intention is that you send him a state of the art phone such as an IPhone or a E90 Nokia phone and once you do, because by now you are feeling sorry for him and expect that he will pay you back, he then claims he was in a car accident while travelling to a travel agency to book a flight to visit you. He then asks for more medical/emergency money. PLEASE DO NOT FALL INTO THIS TRAP! AS HE IS A FAKE!!

I wished someone out there could get this jerk for the nasty stuff he does, but if not, GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF HIM EVENTUALLY. HE WILL SUFFER IN A NASTY WAY THAT HE DECEIVES OTHERS.

Ben is same as Jeff Samuel

He gives two address:
One in Nigeria: 18 Mbari Street, Owerri 23483 Nigeria
And one in Ireland:
74 Main Street Bull Ring, New Ross 10002. Wexford County, Ireland.

He claims to be Irish but has total Nigerian accent.

He is involved with another scammer named - Onyinye Uloaku <>

He was in Uratta shortly
1107 MCC URATTA Road,
Owerri, IMO state, Nigeria 23483.

Now he is moved to Abuja.
I have sent him money at 18 Mbari Street,

How can we catch him?

Jeff's address in Abuja

Abuja, Nigeria

He is very dangerous.

I got his Ireland address checked by the post office.
It is a fake address.

Jeff Samuel says that he is in London and he is still asking me 300 pounds.
When I told him to get the money from my brother who lives in London and contact my Irish friend in London, he says he will only take money from me. LOL!

He also now works with a Nigerian man name Gabriel. Who, according to Jeff lives in Houston and has a Sales job.

Women, Jeff has a particular writing style. He uses different names. Please be very careful.
He calls me as soon as I give him indication that I have money. It is very easy to speak to him. He has Nigerian accent clearly.

I wish someone in Nigeria beats him up. I have reported to Imo State government in Nigeria.

This is how he used to write. I want to publish his letter so that you can recognize his writing style and not get conned. He asked a woman in Thailand to send large money:

Here you go.... Enjoy his love letters......... LOL!

I just want to tell you that wherever you go today know that my heart is with you. That I believe in you 100%, I believe in you r heart, in your integrity, in your strength of character and your beautiful words that are now etched forever in my heart.

If there is a tough moment in your day just stop, say a small prayer and when you have finished, it is my hope that you are able to feel my arms around you ever gently...I am there.....remember you have my heart, you and you alone hold the key my Queen!!! I LOVE YOU......until I breath no more and even if I can find a way I'll still be there for my heart will surely live on!!

If you ever feel lost set your gaze on the north star, for like a compass you are my 'TRUE NORTH' You will never be truly lost for I now hold YOUR HEART and I will treasure it more than my own. This, my dear Archanaa is a promise I make to YOU! You are treasure and it is my desire that this love only grow stronger and more valued with time. It is my dream that ours will live on even after our hearts have both ceased to beat, that stories be written of us like those of old. How many are so lucky to have such a treasure.(ME!!(: )

Please understand who I am as I give this promise to you my love. I am human, I make mistakes, but I am honest and I will guard your heart and keep it 's secrets. I will pray for you each and every day (many times) I will be your friend, your lover, the keeper of your home , the mother of your children. I will pray with you, fight with you,Fight for you,( just know a fight is not an ending ,rather a understanding to something we will grow together on!) I give everything I have to you, My life ,my children, my time, my money,n-any of my stuff, for really I have learned nothing but the first three matter anyway!

I ask for only a few things in return;;;;;

1. Sometime to prove to you that I am not a con man.
2. That we go to pre-marital counseling, I promised my counselor 5 years ago!
3. That you try and understand / support me in anyway till I get this problems sort out completely, Can you?

I must go for now my love. If you know one thing today know I LOVE YOU -N- GOD LOVES YOU SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH MORE (that's a lot of LOVE!!!!!) (: . I wish you peace good health , and joy! Now turn around lift your head to the lips have just ever so gently touched yours..x..(: .

Always and forever your darling,
Hugs and kisses!
