He is a real rig engineer, married with a beautiful family & does live IG videos of the beautiful ocean and posts photography often.It was hard to see the real him at first but as time has gone by, it's gotten easier and I'm glad it happened.I showed him a copy of his ip trace.said I would die - be killed. He never asked for money, I thought I was always a step ahead of him. I asked him about it and he said Arc Daniel was his nickname. That day, after I posted, I received 10 or 15 Friend requests. I will be paying payments on these accounts and will be trying to repair my credit rating. I would like to post a picture I saved to warn people. Attractive bald man with a beard, and Facebook accounts with 3 different names. In addition to posting here, contact a federal cyber crime agency and be prepared to give them as much information as you can, including emails. I also told my story to my friends and family on face book.My scammer stole Doug Blevins pictures off Facebook. He was really smooth and texted me mornings and night. He then started asking if I could help him out since he couldnt get off rig. I made payments on cards and let them clear and then he had me buy more. He blocked me and then deleted his facebook account. One of the cards got paid by a person in Kentucky by the name of Janet Sherrow. Some of the photos are youthful and the guy he stole the photos from looks like he might be gay. I shared the story and pictures and asked them to share it publicly. It was an embarrassment to me but I was not going to let these scammers get away with this and find another person to hurt.It stinks because I had good credit until my scammer came along. I have had many friend requests and I have had 13 more since that try. He has only sent me one photo, that of "him" in what appears to be a restaurant or bar, balding, handsome, glasses, and a necklace.
About 3 months into it he asked for water on the rig as their water is not safe to drink and he needed bottle water of about 200 cases shipped over and it was for his men he said.
But before his check was deposited into the bank he was in a hotel room and needed hotel fare and then airfare to travel.
All along I thought that he was a real man and that the image I was talking to was real and that he was going to come and meet me and that we would start dating and courting and learning about each other and starting a relationship.
To the person who posted about this man I feel your pain or should I say anger. They have my picture, and I am sure they will be trying to use that somewhere!
My credit is ruined due to being scammed and one thing I found is no one cares. I am seeking pictures of James, the man I am talking too.
