Hi, it seems that i have come across this website too late. i just realised that i have been scammed by the same person behind this model's photos and unfortunately i have already sent him some funds to help tide over his emergency. He goes by the name of Timothy J. Broodie now (tim_nz@live.com) and i have met him on a dating website. He claims to originate from New Zealand, but works in UK as an engineer now and goes to Nigeria for holidays and that is when he gets robbed, stuck and out of money and his credit cards do not work. I am feeling very fustrated and upset right now and hope everyone out here will be on high alert for this character. Apparently he is still playing the same game and usign the same photos for more than a year now. Currently he still asks me to send him some funds for an air ticket back to UK! Imagine his persistence and galls!

Hi luvly vive,
thanks for your information about Dominic Willfners, i think there are many cute guy profiles out there being used by scammers especially on dating sites! I really think websites should employ better surveillance for potential scammers and spam emails.

Hello,
.......i want you to know that am the only child of my parent.i lost my parent at a tender age..ever since then i have been alone.........and that makes me love my only son david too.....A company was owing my father money before his death.. money that worth about $350,000..i was able to collect some there...to start my bussiness al this is just to tell you more about my self..i think very soon me and my son david can come over to see you if you wish..but i want you to know that you the kind of person am looking for...i think we can live as one family very soon ..what i have is your Lol...i want you to give me your home address cos i would love to meet you in person..I want you to know that 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 suprise you before you know it, but it will be the most rewarding experience you will ever have..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.........




* The above e-mail is what I received from whom I believe to be the same man (David McClair) I believe I am a victim of this David also. He has sent me numerous e-mails talking of a contract he has with Nigeria, Africa. An only child. How much he is now in love with me and wants to meet me as he has vacation time coming. Has called my phone and the number that shows up is...808-847-5839. The land line to that number is in Honolulu, HI. That number when you call it back... says it is no longer in service. He also gave me a text number with that number above but with 011-234 first than those numbers next. That number is from Nigeria, Africa. I believe he is using an innocent mans name and photo of a Dennis Powell on the site called tagged.com. Dennis Powell is INNOCENT and probably also unaware that this David is using his photo and name as a dating scam.

The man in this picture is Dennis Powell. ( INNOCENT MAN) Unaware he is being used.
The man that is using his identity won't stop calling my sister. Number that shows up on your caller ID is 808-847-5839. Please be careful!

I met this man on tagged.com. He is a dating scammer. This is his first e-mail he wrote me after I added him to my yahoo messenger. The man in the picture above is who this man 'claims' to be. I have not sent him any money. He has called me first time today. The number 808-847-5839 showed up on my caller ID. Quite the charmer isn't he? I believe him to also be.. David McClair, Harvey McDaniel Ashwood, Frederick Morris, Timothy J. Broodie. Please read...

This is the second e-mail he sent me. Notice his typing is not correct English. In this one he asks me a lot of questions and is willing to re- locate.

This Dominic Dino Willfners contacted me on metrodate.com He is using a picture of a very attractive man. It's a good thing I'm the type of person who likes to google names. I admit we exchanged a few e-mails but I felt that something wasn't right. For someone who claims to be highly educated, his grammar was so bad. Something just didn't feel right. I'm so glad I found this website. I'm attaching a picture of the man that this scammer claims to be.
