The picture you are trying to load is it of him sitting in a bar, looking right at the camera with his piercing blue eyes?? thats the first one he uses. And actually manchester is not his team I forget now which one is his. but we use to discuss soccer alot.. let me know what phone number he gives you for he will. I will tell you if its the same number.. He told me he was staying at the 'the 7 rainbow hotel' no such place. I loaded a new picture yesterday and now its not there. I will try again.

I also know this man as John E. (Elvis) Benson, 43, 11011 Garden Grove, Northridge, Ca 91326 -- phone number in Africa as +2348036883056... Bad news... He had the nerve to ask me for my BOA credit card information claiming his friend in India was going to deposit money on the card, and I was to withdraw the funds and send to him.... Duh??? I told him to have his good friend send the funds directly to him, why a third party? He is very good about disappearing when backed into a corner. Photos he sent me are attached.

This sound like the same person I just dealt with on cupid.com. Thankfully his profile had been deleted n the message had been replaced with a warning that he could be involved with the nigerian scams. He was going by Mark Benson. I didnt let on that I knew anything abt it at first n while we were talking his grandmother had a bad accident n he suddenly had to fly to nigeria. He said he had homes in manchester england n canada. When I did confront him with it he told me to always be myself to be very careful n goodbye til we meet again. Im tryin to post the pic he sent me.

I have been talking to this John Benson for 2 days. Was very leary of him. Came on too strong too soon. Glad I googled him. Real piece of work. After reading this I e-mailed him and told him not to contact me anymore, then removed him from my contacts. None of the pictures shown on this site is the one he sent me. I didn't save them so can't download them. Thanks for the info.

He has changed his name from John Benson and now uses the name Fred Moses. His sons name is now Dave. There is no question that this person is one and the same. He found me via match.com , user name seekmynum1 and was from Los Angeles, Ca. He told me he was in Lagos Ikeja Nigeria repairing a bridge and it was worth $1.3 million dollars. He told me a sad story about his parents that were killed in a car crash when he was 14 years old. He is divorsed, wife Whitney is a drug user and he has full custody of his child, David 'Dave' who is in a London Boarding School. He was raised by his Grandmother in London. His uncle took his inheritance. He told me about old girlfriend Lisa that he dated for 1 year and she cheated on him with his ex-bestfriend in October 2008. His email address he used was honestheartca@yahoo.com then changed it to fredmoses01@gmail.com and now has changed it yet again to honestfredca@keromail.com. He writes his emails and texts like a poet. He also has the great talent of making you do things (like send money) by using your emotions against yourself. This is one very talented man. He will tell you that his cam cannot work because of a firewall issue, cannot send new pictures because he forgot his cable and on and on. Bottom line. This man wants money and will sell you words in order to get what he wants. He is German American, 44, B-Day 10-11-64. Libra.. This guy will never get to America, just your cash. If anyone have had any contact with him, please post it online.

This man has contacted me, his story is almost identical to the one posted. He is going by Maxwell Moses now, son's name is still Dave. He was using the email honestmaxca@yahoo.com, contacted me through yahoo personals. He claims his cell phone (same number as in earlier post) and his personal diary were stolen, so he got a new phone and a new email. His phone now is 234-802-361-1851. His new email is maxwell4kim@yahoo.com. He is very convincing with his words. When I first started talking to him, his email did not show up on google, but now it does. I wish I had checked back again, because I really fell for him. This is the pic he sent me.
