Other Comments:
Very active scammer on many dating-stes, goes also as woman. Other names are ''James Collins'' or ''Derickson''. Headlines like ''Luvheart'', ''Love and affection'', ''Seeking formy soulmate''. Writes long emails and poems like this:
''There's a sea between us, love,
and I wish that it weren't true,
for every day when I awake,
I yearn to be with you.
There are many miles between us, love,
though you're always here in my heart,
and every night,
beneath the silver starlight,
I pray for the day we'll never part.''
Discribes himself in long sentences with many commas and bad grammar.

This man sent the same pictures to me and went by Taye Coker. He told me he was a civil engineer living in Florida and was a single dad of a 5 year old son, Derrick. He had a sister in Austrialia named Lola Coker. He said his wife died while giving birth to his son and also both of his parents were dead due to old age. He promised me the world...wanted to get I thought. He is really good at scamming! I believed him and why wouldn't I? He proclaimed to be a 'God fearing man' and repeatedly told me how he has prayed for me all his life. We would talk via yahoo messenger, on the phone etc. He did ask me to send him a package with very specific instructions on what to send. He is really believable he was going to meet my family. Thank God my friends checked him out online and introduced me to this site as well as a few others. He got to me, by sending a very long intro email to me about himself on He goes by Deekay C on Tagged. Please be careful as he is a sweet talker...he had me convinced with his poems and what seemed to be genuine chats and emails. He told me he was going to Nigeria for 6 weeks to work on a building contract and even gave me a website to look at...seemed believable to me. Looking at other websites, he says the same story...just some variations to it.
