Bill Brimfield

Romance Scam

Oxnard, California

He said he was an Engineering consultant working in Italy, from Oxnard California. He uploaded pictures of him and a 'daughter'.

Over a period of a few weeks, he talked me into sending him $14,200, in total.

He never showed up in Illinois. Did send me 1 package with keys -- supposedly for his house.

i have reported this on IC3 and Local Authorities in Illinois.

Unfortunately these scams are not new and have been around for years. They are called "sweetheart scams" (Google it for more guys). MOST of these guys are from Nigeria, but say they are from the US doing business overseas. They fall instantly in love with you and then start asking for money. They usually say they are widowers and have a kid. And yes, they troll the dating sites and pay for memberships. Best to only date/meet local people and don't buy into the stories that they are overseas on business. And NEVER send them money!!
