Other Comments:
This person is dangerous and needs to be stopped. He uses social networking sites to find his victims. I have no idea how many victims this person has but I am a victim of this person and thank God I caught on before it was really bad. He disappears once he has been discovered may have stolen identities also. He also goes by the name Mafeng James Dung. He also claims he is in the UK or Cairo, Egypt but he always says he is from Ohio. He claims to have a son that is 11 but told me that his son was 16. Be very careful when approached by this person, he is very very dangerous and will ruin your life if you allow him to. He also claims his computer was 'whacked into' and that this person is someone else. Do not believe a word he says because of this is a lie and part of his scam.

He has also been reported using other names on this site. Just look at each profile and you will see his picture come up in a couple of different spots with information on each of his lies and scams.

Complemeint of the day.

Good Day,

I have waited so long for you to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $1,800,000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not get any reply from you. Then I went and deposited the Draft with SECURITY COMPANY, EGYPT.

I have traveled out of the country for a 6 Months Vacation because the Dr said I need alot of rest.

All you have to do now is to contact the SECURITY COMPANY as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date.

For your information, I have paid for safe keeping, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Check showing that it is not Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

The only money you will send to the SECURITY COMPANY to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is (I dont know the amount) US Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.

Again, I would have paid that but they said no because they dont know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.

You have to contact the SECURITY COMPANY now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below:
Contact person Mr. IBRAHEEM REMMY,
Tel: +20147147886

Finally, come up with this information in the claims form and forward it to them.

Full Names: Country: Home address: Occupation: Phone numbers: Fax Numbers: Sex: Marital Status: Mailing Address:

Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee which i dont know the amount.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr, Mike Anderson

Here is another email he sent me. He usually doesn't send many emails. He prefers to use Facebook, MySpace, PositivesDating, Yahoo Personals, MSN Personals and uses yahoo messenger to communicate with his victim. He makes contact through a social networking site by saying he found you through 'the personal dating' site. I have never used a dating site or even visited those sites until I began this search for this horrible man. I hope we can catch him and put him in jail to rot. No one deserves to have what was done to me have done to them. I know there are lots out there but you can rest assured, I have blocked all sites from public view now. I had accounts so I could keep in touch with family and friends not low life people like these.

Dear Sharon,

Hey, Honey ... I miss you. I'm just here thinking about you, like I always do. I hope you're as happy as me; Sunday is almost here again. The thought of you in my arms right now sounds so good to me. I just want you to know how much I love you.

Ever since the first time I heard you on the phone and your words to on chat, I miss you every second of my life. I knew I found someone special. I will always remember how sweet you are and how every time .Am really miss you badly babe ,I can't wait to be with you babe.

Love always,

Once he has figured out that you know he is a scam artist, he deletes his accounts and comes back as some one else. He attempts to scam multiple women at the same time. Be very very careful when receiving emails or unsolicited invites from anyone. Know them before you accept their invite. There are too many scammers out there and they are very dangerous. They will ruin your life if you let them.
