Mark Phillips from greater London (he says) contacted me via parship 20080929 since then we’ve been chatting almost daily. The same story, widower, wife died car crash 5 years ago, daughter Jackie 14, said he is self employed, buying/selling diamonds, he had to leave to France urgently to meet his fathers lawyer about the heritage, (gold bars) day after he calls me saying everything worked out well, and few days later he calls me from Ghana (still there) saying he is having Financial problems want me to help, problems with paying hotel bills food etc. after receiving a few e-mails he was in love and wanted to marry me. I fell for him too.Im really hurt. He wanted me to send money. the first mail he said he was on business trip to Sweden, the Swedish people treated him with respect, so he want to meet his soul mate from Sweden. When I asked were he was he always changed the subject, he never been out of Ghana I suppose. After some time chatting he decided to come to Sweden to visit me. Then I asked him to send a copy of his air ticket, he scanned a false ticket and sent me, the day after a doctor calls me saying Mark was involved in a car accident very seriously injured, a cut his head and his leg, Unconscious and lost much blood. He wants me to call him Next morning, When I called him he wants me to send 800 Euro for his medication. I asked why me, he said you are his wife. HE GOT ME. Want more. I can not explain the whole story because it would take too long.
Knowing this man is a fraud the lies just kept coming.
He’s very charming, convincing, manipulative, he is a pathological liar, hypochondriac will say anything to make others feel sorry for him.

Scammer found me in Tinder. Italian American goes by name of Shawn Robinson. claims he is going to work on an oil rig and has an equipment t business. Says he lives in Oakland but is moving to Los Angeles when he comes back from this trip. He tells me he is in love with me after a week of texting and phone calls from 510-679/3752. Before he leaves for his trip he asks me to keep in touch via hamgouts. He sends me his empty, sans image profile “I’m Shawn”. Which seemed strange at first. After another week of priessing his love for me and sending poetry. He tells me his equipment on the rig is breaking down and he needs my help with anything I can send towards the purchase of a$17k piece of equipment. That was the moment my stomach sank! This is one of the images he posted on Tinder.

He also claime to be a widower with a 14 year old son.
