I met this guy in And from his profile he sounds good then we exchange emails, but finally I found he never ask my questions in his email and only copy some love letters to me every time. And finally He asked for my address and phone number.

And below is his emails to me:
1st email

Hello ,
I'm very glad to read from you, it will be my pleasure to meet you in person soon, I believe in every relationship there most be a starting point, which make us to know each other.... and it's really my desire to know you very well and we become best friends. My name is Smith Anderson 39yrs old. I'm from a family of four, I'm Marine Engineer and I work with Marine Company here in London, I will tell you more about me and my family as time comes, yeah i have been japan, Malaysia and Thailand I love traveling because I'd like to get to know something new every minute, every second. I'm always ready for new emotions and feelings. I like adventures and I think our life would be boring without them. Also I love music, reading, relaxing, and movies. I love to spend my free time with my friends. I feel my life is very interesting. I try to make it interesting. I think that it depends on us..... I'm really into trying to appreciate what it is that I have in life. I am the happiest man when I know that what I do is the right thing for me, from my heart. I enjoy being mentally and physically active, I love doing almost anything outside. I like to be in the fresh air. I love to laugh and see humor all around me. I am a happy and fun loving person but I would like to find that special person to be able to share and to have fun with. I'm warm, sensitive person who is always open to new ideas. I'm romantic and love sunsets and candle during dinners, but you can't fully appreciate them unless you have the right person to share them with. I'm looking for a tender and emotional woman. She should care about me and feelings. I'm ready to share my life with such woman... I'm ready to be a serious husband and love my wife. Our life is a zebra; it has dark moments and light moments. When you are on a dark side you are unhappy and give up and when you are on the light side of your life you want to live and never die, because life is so good for you. I want to find a woman like you who will be near me during all times, when I am on the dark side or light side, it doesn't matter, and she will be always besides me, the same with me. I will be always with her, we will support each other and never let each other be sad or unhappy. Please, take good care of yourself and your job, eat very well, don't stress yourself too much, always find time to rest and be happy all the time.

2nd email

How was your day? I hope everything is well with you and your family. I'm very Excited to read from you. I want to tell you that this love dose not mater about your race, culture or religion. I hope with time we have to understanding each other, and i will plan to visit you in country for self introduction.

Dear, I was just thinking about us this morning and I decided to go on my computer to email you, in fact I really thought about lot of things concerning us and our previous conversation, before writing this email I really had a lot of things in my heart to tell you but it was quit unfortunate that when I got on my computer to write to you, I got lost of words and really don't know what to write or how to put my heart intention in write, but I will just try my best to explain.
I really don't know what has been going on with me since last night, I have been thinking so much about you all this while, all this may sound strange to you due to the fact that we have not met each other and we are just new to each other but I want to let you know that I really care about you,

I wish you can understand how I really feel right inside me, sometimes I use to think about the best way to let you know how I really feel about you, do you really know how it feels when something is right?, that is how I really feel about you, I feel that we are right and perfect for each other. I really hope that I could have the chance to make a way into your heart so as to let you know that I really care about you and to prove my love.

Love is a great gift and we cannot control it when it is real, I understand that it might seems to early to tell you all this but I have to let you know them, I really care about you and I am falling in love with you and this is true.
Please take good care of you and I hope we can talk again soon, Have a nice day.

3rd email

I read your mail with joy thank you, What more can a man says to the woman who opened her heart to him, allowing him to feel the warmth of her love across the great distance that separates them? You truly have no idea what I feel for you. I try to put this feeling into words, but fail miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass, my love for you continues to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. Yet, my love for you continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence. I'm usually not the kind of person that would write a love letter, but I thought I’d do this for you because you are the most wonderful thing in my life right now. I know we're far apart but hey, like I said, distance means so little when you love someone so much. I need you to know I am with you through everything, the bad and the good. I've given you my heart and I hope that you won't break it. Keep it and give it some loving from time to time. Remember when I promised you that I'd never let you down, that I’d never treat you bad, that I would share your joy and pain? I will promise all those things over and over again. I promised I'd be coming over to meet with you soon.
Love always,

4th email

I am every happy to read from you, I have a wonderful days because I take my time think more about you. Since day one we've shared something incredible, something that most people only dream of. I had been searching for you all of my life. You have made me the happiest I have ever been. You are sincere, caring, loving woman, and I wouldn't trade you for the world. I am so thankful and blessed that you loved me as much as I loved you, and that you made me your husband. We have not been met, and I have cherished every moment since the day we being started writing to each other. I love you more and more everyday. Thinking about our future fills me with anticipation and excitement. We make the perfect husband and wife team, and I cannot wait to make it happen so soon, and hopefully a baby boy one day. We are going to have an amazing life together raising a family. All of our dreams are coming true, baby! Our life together is already amazing, and together it will only get better and better. I will forever be grateful that you came into my life and made all my dreams come true. Together we're perfect, and I will enjoy enjoying spending the rest of my life with you. I love you more than words can say. Honey I had an emergency alert this week and I will be flying to Ireland My Company was awarded a contract by the Ireland government so I will be back in few weeks time. Last weekend I went for shopping with family members and i bought some presents (gift) for you i will send it to you today before travelling to Ireland. Note: give me your postal address and your contact phone number in your next reply, to enable me post it.
Forever Yours,

5th email

My love

I am doing good hope you are doing the same. Secretly you have taken each broken piece of my heart from all those before you and put it together like a puzzle. Our troubled times were those of which my heart was not put completely together, but once the last piece was placed, that was when I realized I can't live without you.

You are a great woman and I just can't imagine a day without you. When you are not here I see you, I smell you, I feel you, I miss you!!!

I lay awake at night, sometimes, and I cry 'cause I miss you so much. I know that we can't change the past, and I know that we can't predict the future, but my heart does not lie ... I am so in love with you. I met you few weeks on the Internet, and since that time, I have grown to love you so deeply. I have heard it said that online romances don't last, but I disagree.. I know that what we are doing may be considered wrong by some, but I also know what I feel in my heart, and I know that it's real.

Give me your postal address and your contact phone number in your next reply, to enable me post them, because no need keeping it here since i have made the purchase no need keeping it.

Love always,


I dont know why he asked for my post address but I am 100% sure he is a scammer!

Most of these conversations have been send to me also from a James Charles Hersham how these awful men can live with themselves is beyond me, they are the scum of the earth and we must keep on exposing them
2009-08-04, 16:22:11
This is not the man he says he is, he is a scammer of the worst possible kind, a proper slime ball preying on lonely women who are simply looking for a bit of love and excitment in their lives. Please be careful and do not be sucked into his grimy existance like I was.

@anon USA

At first I want your handling name(a nick name ,not real name).
There are so many ''anon USA '' on Delphi.I can not recognize you .
Like fanfan ,cancan,wanwan,JJ,BB,GG,it is ok?
Please give me your enjoyrable handling name!!
Then I tried looking into his mail header informations,
and I show you that result.It is here (it is a flow chart of sender IP address )

We can not find '' any UK's sender IP address ''.
It is a scam !!
He has hidden his real sender IP address from you.
It is the scam.

And please remember,,,,,
Your scammer has chosen ''''.
It has the scam reason !
'' @gmail,@yahoo,@hotmail''
it is so hard for us to look up their real sender IP address.
African scammers know the reasons .
That is the reason why African scammers have chosen @yahoo webmail.
When you will file a complaint to your local police,FBI,
please show his email header informations to FBI.

2)You must look into the place where your scammer had picked up your money.
You must know the place !! So please ask Western Union about the place!
You must know the branch of transaction.It is very very important infos for you to file a
complaint.If you will find that branch of transcation,you will be able to know the place
he lives in now.

3)Do you ask phone provider about his phone number +44? or not yet?
Without filing a complaint,phone provider may not disclose his scam phone number
infos to you.So you will file a complaint to your local FBI,then you can negotiate with
his phone provider about his scam .

4) And please listen to me carefuly and please contact the admin peter!
Because you have put your personal infos on here!
Your personal infos must be removed quicker!
I show you the admin's e-mail address so you must email the admin as soon as you can !


It is OK?
And please tell the admin this threads name
''Dating scammer SMITH ANDERSON''
''page 7''
You have put your mail address ''KXXXXy ShXXXXX'' on here.
It is too bad !!
If you will not remove your personal infos,
your mail box will be flooded by scammers.
And if unknown person will email you with zip files,
NEVER open that zip file.It is a Trojan,computer viruses!!

Please remove your post!
Then again please come back and join us !!
And when you will post,please see your post carefully.
I come on here everyday and I am waiting for your next post.
It is OK?

And you already know my English is not well.
I can not explain to you well.
I am sorry to you.
So I call my friend '' DOC'' .
DOC is a great contributor on Delphi.
You can trust him.
I am a Japanese but he is an American guy.

@our DOC !!
Please come here and support her !!
Especially explain about Western Union to her !!!!!!

anonymous from United States,

My friend wanwan asked me to come here, hope I can help. I sorry that you were scammed. Please do as wanwan says and send a email request to Amin. to remove your email address from here. You sent your money with Western Union? Please call Western Union and tell them you sent your money to a scammer, talk to the fraud dept. They can tell you what location your money was picked up. If it was outside the United States then you would want to file a complaint with the authorities from that country also. Western Union will give you the website so you can report to the FBI internet fraud that you were scammed.

OJAS from United States  
Sorry Kim, you got scammed.
Better to use a signature, like your favorite local team, instead of giving away your personal information, otherwise you might be spammed.
Ask Western Union & Moneygram to block future transfers to that individual
Report him in
Hope you soon recover from the emotional distress. You will find many sympathizers on this site.

Thanks wanwan for pointing out my oversight when copying the header from my scammer's email and leaving my email address in there. I sent an email this moring to Peter asking his help to remove for XXX out my address. Very careless. I will contact the Western Union as advised to see if I can find anymore info. I am attaching his Passport he emailed me too. Maybe someone out there can see what they can find out using this. I have no idea if it is real or not. I am going to file a complaint with my loack Police dept. I tried askig MySpace for his info they would not help only if I had the Police contact them directly.

Thanks to everyone on here for their advice and support.

It helps to know your not alone.

wanwan from Japan  

Hi,KLS in USA.
DOC,OJAS are great contributors on Delphi.
You can consult them & ask them.
They also '' American & nice guys ''.

1)the place !!!!
It is very important info for you to know the place your scammer had picked up your money.
So please contact Western Union and ask them about the place!

2)The forged passport
I guess this passport is forged one.
Please contact '' UK '' embassy in your hometown.
Or email UK embassy and ask them about this passport is fake or not.
If the one is fake,your scammer commited the ''crime ''.
You can file a complaint to your police about '' scam ''.
Of course you can negotiate with UK embassy about Forgery of UK passport.
Please contact UK embassy and show this one(I guess this is 99% fake.).

Please contact Myspace and negotiate with them for getting scam infos.
Especially you must ask for Lawson's sender IP address.
And Lawson's blog on Myspace needs to be banned.Do you agree with me?

4)file a complaint
If you will contact local police,never put police's infos details on Here.
Never detail the story between you & your local police !!
It is OK?

5)Join us !
please come on here everyday and join us !!DOC & OJAS can support you!!
Please ask them !

Please contact phone provider and ask about his scam phone number infos.
I guess Lawson comes from Nigeria,,,,,,.

Thank you for your postings.
It is very very helpful to future potential victims.
You can save many peoples.
I appreciate your good jobs on here and thank you.
When we will find new infos on him,
we will put those on here for you.

See you tomorrow!
have a good day in your hometown.

On British Passport:

Notice the crown stamp at the top left of the photograph.
Notice the wavy pattern on the right edge.
After the photo is affixed, these two are placed, MUST straddle the photo and the passport page.

Send a copy of the forged passport to the British Embassy in Washington DC
Let them know that money was collected in UK (Full details)
Also contact Western Union UK, US

Subject: Recent Victim of a Scam
Importance: High
Hello, my name is _______. I was recently involved in a scam that cost me $600.00 (US dollars). The man claims to live in London, England. He goes by the name Henry David Lawson. The telephone# he provided is +44-704-574-3468. He contacted me on a dating website called Later, I found out after the scam he is also on, and He has different ages down on each of the sites, and on the Hi5 site he states he is from Nigeria. I fell for what is called the Internet Love Scam. He is very good. He knows exactly what to say to win your heart, and then he came up with a story that he needed money. He of course stated he would pay me back when his Bond cleared. I wired the money via Western Union on 7-24-09. Well the day he stated his Bond would clear came and went. I inquired about the money and when the Bond would clear. He then stated it would be 28 days. I knew I would never see the money again. I know I probably will never be able to recoup my loss; however this man emailed me a copy of what he states is his passport as I was questioning his integrity prior to sending him the money. I am not sure if this document is real are fraudulent. I would like to file an official complaint with your Embassy to alert them about this man. I am going to file a report with my local FBI as well. The only crime he could be charged against is if the passport he sent me is fraudulent. The $600.00 is my ignorance. If you can please assist me who I need to speak with to address this or how I go about filing an official complaint, I would greatly appreciate any help you can offer. I am attaching a copy of the passport and a picture that he sent. Have no idea if this picture is even real.
His email info:
Yahoo Messenger screen name: davelawson2cute
(Below is where I sent the Money via Western Union. I contacted their Fraud Dept and notified them. They are checking the actual location of the pickup. The will only give that info to the police or the Embassy. The # is 1-800-448-1492 and she said just give them the Original MTCN # 3630800791 and they will be able to look up the complaint.)

KLS, Ask the British Embassy for information on contacting the Internet crime Division of Scotland Yard. Whether they are able to do anything or not, it is a good idea to get him into their database, anyway.

Hi everyone.. I have really discourage by the lack of interest I have run in to. I have emailed the British Embassy and no one has returned my email. I called Western Uniopn and they would not give me any information. They said I could file a police report and the Police could call and inquire. MySpace would not give me any info either. They said the same thing as Western Union. Oh well, I tried. Mr. Lawson has continued to contact me via email. I have not told him I have reported him, I just started playing his game. I told him I lost my house and my kids because I had no place for them to live. I just wanted to see if the person behind these emails had any heart what so ever. Probably not but it is fun F&%king with them. As far as he knows I am homeless and destitute becasue he never paid me back. At least he knows he can not ask for money from me any more; because I am homeless..... Why he keeps emailing me boggles my mind. Sick cookie.
