Other Comments:
His name is Lawrence David Dale and I met him on Match.com. According to him, his birthday is October 18, 1962. He began texting through 2 phone numbers. 1-856-513-2937 & 301-200-0022. Email addresses dalelawrenzo@yahoo.com, daledavid49@yahoo.com. Prior to this, I have not heard from him for several weeks and quite suspiciously he stopped texting me when I told him about another scammer that I had met on Match.com. On January 28, 2013, he starts texting me again saying that he did not receive any of my texts since he was in the UK. He says that he is a Pipeline engineer with a graduate degree in Marine Metallurgical Engineering. He went to Melbourne, Australia for undergraduate school and his second degree was from Dublin Ireland but later he told me it was from Oxford in the UK. Later changed the story to that he went to Junior High in Dublin Ireland and college at the University College of Dublin, UK. First he tells me that he has lived in Maryland for about 2 months in Ellicott City. Later I asked him about this and he told me that he worked in Texas for 9 months and was staying at the Tremont hotel at St Paul Street in Baltimore. He never really rented or bought his own house here in the states and work brought him to the Maryland because that was the location of the presentation for the job was held. He said that he maintained the BP oil rig in Alaska for 5 months when he first came to the states.
He signed up for Match while living in Ellicott City when he lost the contract. He tells me that he is originally from Australia and moved to the UK after his brother moved there. He has worked in Africa, Italy, Holland (Shell Petroleum for 8 years and stationed in Holland for 3 years) before the UK. He is working in the US on a work visa and has 3 years left on it and says that he has a friend with British Petroleum who can give him an extension. He gets a job in Alaska on Endicott Island for Exxon, leaving on February 1, 2013. As we talk there are more inconsistencies with multiple people (accountant, niece, pick up people) involved but many actually all be him. Especially true for the accountant since I am talking to him and he tells me the accountant sent me an email and I didn’t receive an email and all of a sudden the email shows up.
Also, says he has a brother who died several months ago and send a picture of himself with his brother. Also, says that he cannot access internet so asks you to access his account to send money for supplies. the account is fake. He also says he has a niece, Jenny, who wants to talk with you.
Her email is sweetjenny98@ymail.com

I think there are multiple men using this poor man's photos. I am concered since I am getting pictures with children in them...currently the man wriitng me is following the Alaska story pretty closely. However, previously I was contacted by someone with the same pictures using the name Ryan, using a phone number from Arizona. Sorry...I didn't keep it.

All scammers who have contacted follow a very similar pattern which eventually I assume leads to them asking for money....

Please ladies be careful and DON'T send anyone money...no matter how kind they seem or sad their story is.

Emil Brant. I was stung badly. Met him on Zoosk online dating site. Talked and chatted via Viber daily for a month. Was sent lots of photos even around the area Sydney Opera house near his so called address '129 Harrington Street, The Rocks Sydney Tel: Aus 0479032001 or +60192631804. Email: brant.emil@yahoo.com.au European decent, originally married to Australian. Engineering degree from USA. Son Shaun who lives in London. Has very convincing documentation from K-L Government departments. (All this very easily obtainable in Malaysian, Nigeria etc. His so called Attorney Lina Tan, 2 Jalan Solari, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malayasia Tel: +60146401765 has the gall to telephone and message me. Written English of this man perfect, never slips up. Spoken English sounds American Espanic pos European twinge all in keeping with his profile and heritage. Very caring tentative no explicit sexual innuendoes very very clever. Type of personality matches the photos very well.Feel he may have even adjusted his profile to match mine. Yes be very careful!! I did research the name early in my contact. Came up with Linked in …false profile and face book false profile...I later found out. Other than that could not find anything. It took my daughter to simply type his email address into the Google search bar to get to this site. Too late for me. I have contacted the Jazz Musician, Todd Hunter, whose photos he is using and he was aware and had removed as many photos as possible but it would be too late for him. I was sent many convincing photos. A huge lesson in life for me and an insight into the low life of scammers.
Do be careful and thanks for the information on this site.

Very Very Convincing, photos seem very real and they are just of someone else life. Even as I read the posts on online from other women, saw the photos I still had a hard time beleiving.

Celio Huffman (celiohuffman@yahoo.com.au) also contacted me via Tinder. Being very new to the dating game I was surprised to see such a long email from him and was quite suspicious of how open he was being with a complete stranger. I wouldn't use Viber despite his numerous requests to do so as data / voice / messages etc can't be recovered and traced. Something didn't feel right so I warned him off ...

Here's the introductory, sharing-too-much, email

********************************

How are you and hope you have had a good evening. It was nice chatting .....

A little more about me, I'm mixed German/Spanish, dad is German and my both parents have passed away. I am the only child and I have one son too , he's 24 years doing MBA currently in the London. I have lived in Australia since 1985 when I married my ex wife(Australian), and we have been divorced for 9 years now. I moved to SG 4 years back to start a new life. My Ex wife picked up a drug habit and had a secret affair with my best friend which went on for 3 years, so believe me when I say I know how it feels to be cheated on by someone you love genuinely. This shattered me at that time which led to our divorce which i have never regretted. I got into a relationship 2 years back which didn't end up working as she was still very much into her ex so I moved on, now hoping to find someone who knows what she wants in a relationship and done with ex's.

I am intelligent, communicative, emotionally open, honest, insightful and psychologically minded. Most people describe me as personable, very comfortable with myself, able to engage with every other person in a wide range of situations and circumstances and enjoy new experiences and new learning. I'm a man with strong convictions and definitely have my own point of view but pride myself on being open to other thoughts and opinions too. Generally I am a passionate person, both with my personal affection and sensuality with others and in my excitement and emotional involvement in all things I do. I've developed a good sense of humor, a fairly quick wit and generally, a positive outlook who tends to see the good in people and not judge them. I can be serious and reflective, and pride myself on being a responsible and reliable person. I tend to be a good listener (when I'm interested) but also am comfortable expressing myself. I'm most attracted to women I find are also intelligent and emotionally healthy. I'm drawn to a woman who is independent yet nurturing, verbally and emotionally expressive and genuinely is comfortable with her sensuality and sexuality.

Am a Self-Employed Mechanical Engineer/contractor into repairs and maintenance of heavy equipment's like tunnel boring machines and I work FIFO Jobs. I love my Job even if it's a high pressured one and I have traveled well for work purpose, still looking forward to travel on holiday with someone special. I love to dress and smell good, love going to the movies, listening to music, exploring new areas and traveling. I would like to find a woman who is willing to share a life, 5050, I want to be loved and appreciated. I am honest, respectful, kind hearted, an open book without any secrets and I know I have so much love, care and support to give to the right woman and I really hope to get the same and more back in return. She will be my best friend, who also stimulates my mind and my body; someone to laugh with, to hold me when I am sad, be there for each other at all times, Is that too much to ask for? Are we on the same page? , lastly something that can actually last for a lifetime. I am very affectionate and I miss walking and holding hands, stealing kisses and all of that. :)


I would really love to meet someone who can listen with an empathetic ear, someone who finds joy in the small things, enjoys family, tries new things, accepts differences, has an open heart, loves to laugh and most importantly knows that none of us are perfect, so judgment is best left elsewhere. Further to this, someone I can talk to about anything, who respects who I am and what I stand for, someone who wants to be touched, someone who loves and wants to be with just me, someone who can receive what I can give. I also miss cuddles on the couch, breakfast in bed on a Sunday, lazy afternoons together doing whatever.

I am currently on a Job in Kuala Lumpur and back home in 12 days . I am very happy to continue communicating and where it leads, I have attached a couple of my photos too and hoping I haven't scared you off already .

GooGood luck ladies and keep safe!

Beware of CELIO HUFFMAN/CELIO AMSEL.

Claims to be from Melbourne - 2020s/631 Lonsdale St Melbourne Australia. (no such address)

Has two LinkedIn profiles.
Under both of the above names.

He will claim to be unable to come back home to melbourne due to lack of funds and a recent death of one of his workers.
One guy dead and two seriously injured in a crane accident on the work site where he has a contract as an engineer that maintains the Tunnel boring machines!!! Said he needed money to send the corpse back to Vietnam, and compensate the family and claimed to have parts and components at Customs that he couldn't get released from Customs until he paid more money they wanted.
If you call the people who run this site you'll find out that there isn't any such person.
I have a close friend that lives in KL and happened to be there at the same time as the accident and she said there had not been an accident onsite at all. She checked with the company!

His address is: Jalan Wawasan Amang 3/4, 68000 Ampang, Selangor, Malaysian.

His contact numbers are: +60189743919 & 0479032001
Email address: celiohuffman@yahoo.com.au

He could never skype with me. Camera issues or other ridiculous excuses.
Could never send me a pic of what he was doing, phone issues. Dropped the phone in the loo and it's never been the same since. Laughable excuses really.


When you catch him out he will stop contact or say he thinks we should move on because you're after different things than him.
I confronted him about still being on Tinder.
T
he email from the previous person above is a cut and paste and I've received the exact same email.
Very convincing though and he sounds authentic on the phone.
I confronted him about being real and within a minute he called me and said please don't ever think that I'm not real because I am very real and I've fallen in love with you!
Serious!! Who does that in the first week.

He is using Todd Hunters profile pics. He's a professional jazz musician who is aware of Celio using his pics.

Of course when I offered to come to him in KL he said things were tough at the moment as he needed over $40k for tax (see docs attached) before his contract payment would be released and he would sort himself out and come to Melbourne to meet me.
He asked me if I could help him out with the money. Said that he had a female work colleague that has helped him with half of the money but he needed the rest.


The documents he sent me as proof that his payments were real are attached. If you read them properly you will see a lot of mistakes in the docs. They are easily made up.
But they have been forwarded to the KL authorities - including the Office of the Prime Minister, and the Inland Revenue board of Malaysia.
They are currently looking into it.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL LADIES HE'S GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES. BUT HE'S A SCAMMER AND A LIAR AND A CHEAT.
CHECK ALL HIS ALIASES.
THEY ALL LINK IN TOGETHER.
CHECK ALL THE NUMBERS HE GIVES YOU - IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS WHAT HE'S UP TO.

Everything that the other woman above have said is completely true. I was fortunate enough to find this before he asked me for money but it was coming. The email above is exactly what he sent me. I actually rang him to explain and his answer was why should I fucken work. So this is his life scamming people.
Please take this seriously as he does use the same story and lies to everyone.
He doesn't work overseas, fifo, there has never been an accident, he is not German as his accent changed when I kept mentioning his lie.
He has full intent on continuing to try and scam people so please be very careful.
The pictures he is using are the same as above and they are photo of a New Zealand man that has had his identity stole by this scum.
He also emails fight details saying he is coming home to meet you, if you read it carefully the one he sent me was suppose to be an 8 hour flight but if you take notice of depart and landing times they are out by 2 hours.

All pictures that Celio uses are of Todd Hunter from the band Dragom who's brother Marc was the lead singer. Google Todd and the same photo will come up

He is on Tinder as Celio & told me the same stray lives in The Rocks in Sydney back from KL in 12 days, the current number he is using is +60168414023
