    I sent him the following email. Hahahahahahahaha You silly Zambian. The Police are currently investigating you, they have tracked the computer you are using and are waiting for your next move so they can arrest you.Hopefully this will deter him/them from scamming women in the future.

    He now goes under the name of Juan Hurley. Also from Norway, wudowed, with a daughter named Michelle. I feel rather embarressed, he was quite a charmer. Thank goodness I've read all the above comments

    A Clifton Petterson, claims to be from Norway-Oslo, Same detail about Mosselbay working at the Rig (offshore) and being a chemical engineer. tried calling the number someone asnwered and said he is Clifton, but then I just said sorry wrong number. The person has a facebook page with some very local Afrikaans friends, it might just be a different person's pictures, updates on facebook page done 4 months ago with picture postings.

  • Judith3 28 Nov 2013, 04:36 AM

    Amending my previous remarks. He said his name was MARK BARRY. I didn't mean to say Mark Perry.

  • Judith3 28 Nov 2013, 04:35 AM

    this person contacted me on Facebook, claimed to be Mark Perry from San Francisco, a civil engineer with a 16 year old daughter. His profile is still up on Facebook. Widowed, of course. Told me he wanted to marry me within 24 hours of friending me. His spelling and use of English language was terrible. Said he grew up in Ireland. I talked to him on phone for all of 10 seconds, heard the African accent, hung up on him and blocked him.

    I'm with Candice.. What is this world coming to?... I mean what is this world coming to that SO many of you actually have taken it upon yourselves to reply to this phantom man and try create a relationship with some random man you know nothing about? Stupid stupid stupid. Just be lucky it's a financial scam to get a few pennies out of you and not some rapist or killer. I came across this site now because I got the exact e-mail, word for word, but from a "Clifton Pettersen". I knew immediately it's a scam. Immediately. I am genuinely shocked so many of you fall for these scams. Shew.

    Ok, this guy is getting ridiculous. Looking for a woman but sending email to men. Some special kind of his stupid he is. And Sheila, I wouldn't trust the pics as he can attach anyone's pics to email.
