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

He tried to scam me as well. Going by Celio Artz - on eharmony. Same tunnel boring/ kuala lumpur story. I fell for it until he asked me for $9000 and then started to really check him out and found him here.

All the same pictures as previously posted.

Stay away!!

I too, have been scammed by this pig. I met him on Tinder and he goes by the name Celio Artz. Basically spins the same story about being a FIFO worker in KL. Something just didn't feel right so I googled his name and this was the ONLY site it came up on. Very convincing. Even told me that he couldn't make his flight back to Australia because there was a workplace accident and one of his workers died. Told me all about the accident and then started telling that while the accident was occurring, someone had broken into his cabin and stole parts and equipment he was storing there. The company told him that because he stored them in his cabin, he was responsible for replacing them at his own cost. He started telling me that they were very expensive parts and that he didn't know if he could afford to replace them. If you are working FIFO, you can afford it. So my alarm bells started ringing and the rest is history. Beware ladies, there are so many very convincing men out there. Don't let you emotions rule your head. Follow your instincts. If you feel that something is too good to be true, it probably is. If you feel that something just doesn't feel right, it's probably wrong. This website saved me a lot of hassle and embarrassment. Oh, and all the photos he sent me were the same as those posted on here.

I am still in shock about 'Celio Hubber'. Was on Tinder, texted with him on viber, his suggestion, for over a month, every day morn noon and night, he said he was in Kuala Lumpur on 1 year contract with tunnel boring machines, he said he lived in VANCOUVER, close to where I live, then I told my grown children that Celio was coming to meet me, Celio sent me a copy of his ticket BUT then there was an accident, a crane overturned and one dead, so he had to stay for awhile more...............my kids quickly found this site and a few other sites about this scammer. Also the photos of the 'accident' were on the internet from an accident in Veitnam 3 years ago, I was devastated. We exchanged long emails and i thought it was too good to be true BUT he sounded so perfect. I see here that other women have the same email and photos i got from this scammer. .............. I suppose I was probably days away from him asking me for money. I cant believe I fell for this 'thing'. I so wanted it to be real. oh well back to the date sites but this time much more cautious. sad.

Same happened to me with this man, same story, but something just didn't ring true about him, so googled him and found this web site. Got the same letter, and he is very personable. But wanted money.
Makes it hard for the genuine guys that are on any of these sites.

Yes you are right it is not easy for anyone who is genuine to find someone online as scammers are everywhere and unfortunately lots of them gets scammed too. I am glad you realized the scam in time and did your home work. Yes use google, do researches as when the gut feeling tells you something is off then it is often like that as well. Please post email address the scammer is using as that will slow down the scammer a bit. Thank you.

I too was scammed by this con man but all along I had an element of doubt and a too good to be true feeling, but he is very convincing. I thought to myself a soon as he asks for money then I'll know, and sure enough the same story of the accident in kl a tunnel boring engineer, lived in Sydney, parts got stolen from his area and he had to replace them, he didn't ask for money he just said he was getting aloan but I offered in a small way he was happy with that until I asked for the quote for the parts, he was not happy.
Alarm bells went off so I started to investigate, I got intouch with western union and sure enough they confirmed the address as a scammer.
We texted through viber and spoke often twice a day at least, he sent me beautiful songs and MSGs, he was the first to make contact always.
I've learnt a valuable lesson, I thought I was cautious anyway but now I will be extremely so.
There are so many people out there ready to take advantage of someone, you really can't aford to be complacent
These days.
Do your checks and research how a scammer plays his deceitful games.
