Heres the basics.

His name was THOMAS BRADDOCK from KELLER, VA.

He sent pics that looked like a gorgeous model.... standing beside a laborgini, bmx bike, showering. Even sent a pic of his "model girlfriend who died in a riding accident." of course, she was gorgeous to.

Proposed immediatley. Said he was born to wealthy parents who had died in an accident. He claims to have no other family.

Says he is working in Nigeria as a contractor, building bridges and roads but wants to settle down and not travel anymore.

Sweet talk all the way. Luved me immediately. Luved my pics and I let him even view me on webcam. he claims to live with 3 crew members: abbey (who is also his best friend), ken and Charles. Of course, they all "saw me on cam and were going crazy for me."

I told him i was a poor chick from the South and he laughed and told me how much he just loved me bc I was not after his money.

He found me on Myspace. Then, when he thought he had me, he deleted his profile "because he was not searching any longer."

Tries to keep you online all the time. possessive and seems vulnerable.
I saw this site last night after talking to him and realized he was scamming me, or gonna try.

I immediately brushed him off, at which time he seemed very hurt because i did not care about his feelings. then i told him that I did not believe he was who he said he was and that I was an intelligent woman who new about nigeria lonely hearts scams.

dont fall for it, ladies. hes a fake. he got nothing from me, but I took away some precious time he could have spent taking some poor lonely heart's money... and dignity.

Dont be duped. questions, i will try and help.

Welcome SmarterOne !!!

I'm so glad you found us here...

Yeah the story sounds familiar to many.

Years before I knew what scambaiting was, I was contacted (I was single mom who'd put up a dating profile) by some guy who was in africa and couldn't hear (so he didn't need a cell phone), who was an only child, and his parents were dead...and he really needed ME to cash postal money orders for him....

I looked the scam up on the USPS Warning page and sent him a link to it.

I was so proud of myself, my inner nice girl didn't get used again..

Years later I came across here and decided, it was a good cause, and wanted to see if I could help...

It's only been about 6 months but it has been really rewarding and more fun that what we (my husband & I) could have thought it would be Smile

Glad you joined us - it's a great past time Smile

Welcome to Eater smartone. Glad to hear you were able to find out he was attempting to scam you before you lost any money to him.

Welcome Smartone!

Glad you made it here before losing any money or your heart!

A little advice:

1) Break all contact with this scammer. He has too much of your real life info. If he tries to contact you again, cut him off. Block his number and his emails.

2) Be on the lookout for new scammer approaches. He might try to approach you himself with another character and another story, or he may share your info with other scammers. He may also sign you up for lots of spam once he decides he doesn't have a chance.

3) If you have given your scammer any info that might allow him to access or hack any email accounts, your myspace page, etc. make sure you take appropriate security measures.

4) If you want to make life a little bit more difficult for the love scammers, read the stickies, set up a shiny new myspace page, dating profile, etc, all under fake info, pick up a few new ones (actually, they will gladly pick you up) and have fun!

Welcome SMARTONEHERE.

I am so glad you have posted the above. Anyone using a googlesearch for his name will be pointed here to read your post. That may save another victim.

The advice given above is sound and I hope you follow it. Read as much as you can about safe baiting if you wish to join us, and also tell friends to always be wary about internet love. It happens, but is very rare, and is often just a cruel and a pretend love used merely as a way into your purse.

Edit - Unsure if English purse means the same in USA - small money bag

I was contacted through myspace from Thomas Braddock of Keller Virginia... just like another post on here ... and everything she said he did... to the letter... but I let it carry on until he asked me for $1600 dollars to fly back from Nigeria so he could get some money because supposedly the apartment got robbed and they stole $125,000 and he needed the money to finish a job... them he was to return to the states for good and we would love and live happily. After he supposedly got mad because I told him I had nothing and couldn't help him, I forwarded him to the other post about him and he claimed to be a victim... then I told him I tracked where he got his photos from... focus hawaii modeling site and then I told him he was a low down snake and he signed off. And seems to be refusing to respond to my text messages... Thanks for the the post!!! You really helped a girl out!

Ha ha hilarious. Gorgeous, standing beside Lamborgini. Dead parents, dead girlfriend or wife and a gorgeous one on a top as well. Contractor in Nigeria. Aren't they always.
Don't worry SMARTONEHERE we can smell these chaps a mile away. It's always the same story anyway ...
