Hello xxxxx,

How is your day going sweets? Thanks for the beautiful pics; I guess I am getting addicted to my email because the first thing I did when I got to work was to check my laptop for an email from you and there it was so I thought of taking my time to write you back. My name should be changed to smiley face because that is what I have been doing since I opened up my email. I get a good glow on my face just waking up to read from you. I knew something was missing since I haven’t smiled all morning till now,lol. I was almost late for work this morning, I woke up late, I think I am becoming restful again, maybe I could sense something good ahead of us. Honestly, I just need a woman to hold me before I am old. Absolutely I have come to know that we spend the most of our life seeking for the secondary needs, while our primary needs are left unseen. We have worked so hard and attained some wealth right? but for what purpose? To be realistic, except if you just want to be known as a rich person, wealth means nothing if you have no best friend to share it with. All the millions are useless indeed. How much do we need to eat? How much do we need for shelter? How much do we need for daily fun? Excess and excess leads us to vanity. But for few of us who value the simplicity, we sure would do well in finding happiness. As I always say, money can buy a good bed, but never will money buy sleep. It can buy the best diamond watch, but can never buy time, It can buy piles of books, but cant buy knowledge. It can buy food, but not satisfaction, Money can buy sex, but can NEVER buy love. I want true joy and happiness. I want my woman to have power over my moods, she can make me smile in all weather.

I am glad that I could get your attention my dear. You have a special thing in your heart, and I intend to find out what it is. It could take a lifetime to figure, but I don’t mind,lol. Please tell me about your ideology of life my dear. It would be lovely to hear the voice behind this emails so I am also ready to take this to another level,let me hear the voice of an angel. Be warned I have been told I have an unsorted accent, but sexy,lol. Please provide me with a number to reach you on.

I have attached some of my pictures along.

Loving thoughts,

Good morning xxxxx,

How was your night? I need to be at work but just needed to touch base with you before heading to work. Thanks for the lengthy mail which I enjoyed reading, I should be rounding up the project in about a week plus from today; it’s good to know you are having a good time with your family. I moved from CA thought I mentioned it before to you though, yes Linda my late wife happen to be the mother of my son. Thanks for sharing more info with me about your mom that is so sweet of you, I do go to church and I am a Christian. Thanks for sharing more about yourself with me, you are doing something special to me in your own way and I like that, lol. I mean after all these years; I never would have thought I might not have the possibilities again of having my dream woman, my partner, my best friend and co pilot. I'm talking about fate here - when feelings are so powerful it's as if some force beyond your control is guiding you to someone who can make you happy beyond your wildest dreams. It doesn’t scare me anyways because truly, Love is not about finding the right person, but creating a right relationship. It's not about how much love you have in the beginning but how much love you build till the end. The inevitable truth is, if it is meant to be, our hearts will find each other when we meet. And if our hearts melt together so will our bodies and souls. Then every word and every touch will fuel our passion flame. I will be yours, you will be mine, and we will be one.

Haven to wake up every morning by 6 for work; working from then till late at night, yet being able to be distracted by this woman. I have over 300 labourers here, both skilled and locals, yet all could notice a new glow on my face. LOL. Nelson; a colleague of got married almost two years now. He found his woman on the net and to be sincere, he inspired us. I would love to find my woman first, then building a home would start from there. I am being true to my feelings, as my old friend would say, Never question if you are in love or not, because if you were you wouldn't need to ask. So the best of men, would accept what they feel without questions, because truly, Love and death cant be escaped, no one can tell, when, how, or where. It is never too early or too late.LOL.

What is more important to you the love you share, the memories you have or the lover? Give love a chance to swallow you up. Don't just think it will happen in a instant, it will surprise you before you know it, but it will be the most rewarding experience you will ever have.

If you are as open minded and simple as me, I can promise you that the sky would be the limit.

Loving thoughts,

Be carefull with scammer name: James Berndtson, currently in South Africa for business trip
Same person as AndrewBerndtson, photos of Nick & Andrew , same person

How are you? I got your email and I am glad you did write me. Sorry for leaving in such a short notice, my flight was great. Can you believe I was actually thinking about you while on the plane? Lol. I thought of using this medium in telling you about me. My name is James Berndtson. My dad is of Sweidish origin while my mom is an Ireland woman though lived most of her life with my dad in Stockholm, Sweden which is where I was born and raised. I am the only child of both my parents; my dad was an international business man who travels a lot while my mom was a house wife. My mom never talked much about her family but did make quite a lot of friends around the neighbourhood while we were still in Stockholm and everyone liked her cos she is down to earth woman. My mom was actually an orphan whose only family were close friends, when she first met my dad there was something about the man that no woman could ever resist, sometimes she says she sees same in me, lol. During my father's global movement, I was left to live alone with my mom. I did most of my schooling in Sweden; I even went to Stockholm University but later left to study Civil Engineering, with specialization in mining and Geotechnical Engineering in university of calgary Alberta; where I got the first degree and later moved on to join my folks in the UK where my dad later relocated to with my mom; Tottenham to be precise. I did like it there though cos of their British accent which I thought sounded sexy, lol. We lost my dad to stroke in 2002. My mom said that only thing making her smile right now is that she has me and I do remind her so much of my him.

About my job, I am a Civil Engineer; I do mostly contract jobs which can last for a particular period. I have worked with about 4 different companies including Chevron; So far my job has been going on pretty good. I have a group of colleagues I work with as well, will tell you more about them later. Let me explain to you what it is that I really do for a living. I design things like roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, or water supply and sewage systems. It’s not an easy job though because I must consider many factors in the designs, from the costs to making sure the structure will stay intact during bad weather. Many civil engineers manage people and projects. A civil engineer may oversee a construction site or be a city engineer. Others may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. There are many specialties within civil engineering, such as structural, construction, environment and even transportation. Civil engineers usually work in areas where there is lots of manufacturing and businesses. I often work at construction sites. Sometimes we work in places that are far away from cities. Sometimes I tend to travel out to execute a job. Hope I am not boring you too much with my job thing, sorry about that.

More about me; I'm real easy going, extremely patient, I enjoy music (especially Country, slow rock, gospel, sports, movies and life. I enjoy a good meal with good conversation, my favourite colour happens to be blue. I love Red wine and my favourite food is Chinese; not really a big fan of sushi cos I like my food cooked, lol. A romantic evening for me would be a quiet meal at a nice restaurant and an easy walk hand in hand. I am passionate, loving, respectful, open minded, honest, man that appreciate a lady of character and integrity. I don't consider myself to be high maintenance but appreciates quality.

I moved to Sydney after I lost my wife to cancer 6 years back which is basically the reason why I moved up here cos I just couldn’t live in the house cos it brings back memories. Sorry it wasn’t included on my profile; my apologies. The present project I am working on happens to my last on the field but will be working from home while my men do the field operations. I think I really have gotten to the height cos I embraced work for so long trying to get over my late wife but realized it was time for me to move on. I just want to spend the rest of my life enjoying the fruit of my labour. I just want a woman who would be my best friend and everything, someone who understands the value of a good smile, someone whom we would still love each other more as the days pass by, even when we can’t make love anymore.

I will be looking forward to reading from you, so we can chat and get more acquainted.

Your turn!

scammers steels and sells templates among each-other as criminals they are , that are copied and pasted from the internet ,even if there is similarity with the same context of the mails ,it do not mean it is the same scammer..the templates can only give clues where the scams originates from as Ghana,Nigeria or Senegal with accomplices all around the world.

Scammers uses the same kind of scenarios as they know it is successful for them . Yes the templates gives hits on reported scams online which is a sign of a bigger scam operation in question and how many there are joined in the scam gangs is hard to tell or even who .

Someone tried to scam me recently through ( the dating website). He said his name was Richard Berndtson . His email address is He used the same pictures and email messages mentioned. After several emails he of course asked for money. After reading up on scam email I now see the warning signs
1. He quickly asked for us to get off and correspond through regular email. 2. He never seemed to answer any questions I had. 3. He asked to meet but quickly left the country before that could happen. 4. He was in Capetown, Africa. I heard there is a website where the potential scammed scam the scammer by asking for a picture of them holding whatever ( a sign with a funny message on it (they don't know english well) or holding a fish etc.). 5. They ask for money after some hardship.

For your amusement this is what I wrote back.
'Dear Richard,

I am so sorry for all your trouble. But since we have never met how do I know you are who you say you are. Could you take a picture of yourself with the Table mountain behind you with holding a fish and kissing it on the lips? Maybe I could sell my house and and pimp out my kids to send you money. Because I know our love knows no bounds or boundaries.

Once my house would be sold then I would need to come live with you as I will have no place to go. Should I check into malaria pills and update my vaccinations?

Your love'

Maybe if everyone used the same message at least they would have to rewrite their emails. By the way the person actually wrote back and said 'Sorry i asked for your assistance, were you serious or just making fun of me?' I didn't bother to reply. I did write to to tell them about this.

Here are the words on the profile.

He's still on Match - now he's Joseph Berndtson. There are a few others - probably one in the same; Daniel Bokner; Gary Ricardo - all have a similar story but same type of jobs. I notified Match - they don't seem to care and won't refund my money.

He has been in contact with me first on and via personal email. Going by Fred Berndtson ... From Stockholm, headed to Cape Town, South Africa on business. Sent many photos ... Seemed very real until he vanished suddenly. Then I googled him and found the information here. Very convincing, I must say, although he never asked for money. Dropped me like a hit potato when I asked if he was 'for real'.
