Due to leave his mission next month wanted to build his own hospital.
Wanted money from me to protect then receive a consignment (which was in Ghana).
Wanted to get married and live happy as a family once he left Afghanistan. Hi I was wondering if anyone had experienced the same, as I was DM via twitter by a Dr Roland Smith, based in Syria, doctor for MSF based with UN. Very sweet talking similar to others stories - wanted to talk via hangouts talked for about a month and appeared genuine but then the usual fell in love with me and wanted to be a couple. Always appeared to be able to talk via hangouts, and wanted us to go away once his mission finished.
Always appeared to be able to message me (appeared to have a better internet connection than mine). Then asked me to help get his safe box, as the security company was folding and he needed me to keep his money safe.
Very charming at the beginning and he will push you for money. Almost two months ago I was contacted on FB by Edmund S Larsen a urologic sugeon from Hagerstown Maryland. By last Friday he started to ask me weird guestions like what I like, which personalities I admire and why. Think there may be another Dr Roland Smith based with MSF in Afghanistan originally from America.
Being a widow we started to talk and a romance was born. Contacted me via DM then wanted to talk 'better' via hangouts.
I was so gullible for the love but as soon as he asked me for money I cut him off completely. Sent a beautiful explanation of what he is looking for, everything a girl would dream of. After 4 weeks she told us he wanted to fly out from where stationed to meet her and family.
The best advice I can give you is if anyone asks for money or your bank details to transfer money into - cut them off totally and report them to the site you originally met on. Now he is trying to get me to do a contract for some medical supplies. She talked about marriage and moving to America in the future.
Please take this warning and be very careful and forget about how you feel when you find out, and get them reported to whoever you can. The main FB thumbnail photo is him next to a private jet. Has anyone else come across Dr Roland Smith working with Dr without borders based in Afghanistan. He is very charming and will send nice images of flowers and love and wants to marry you straight away ?? He is operating on Trip together which is a dating site.by Catherine (Sheffield, UK) I am a widow and after just over two years my friends told me to try internet dating. Thanks for your reply concerning Dr James Brown, I feel so very foolish that I let this guy take me in, we have been chatting for 16 months so I really did think he was genuine but now I know it was because I always sent the money he requested. And he become nasty after I refused to send money for his transport to come to see me. There is a list with UN doctors but I am sure he is not on that list. Watch out if this scammer is in Syria as he will give you a UN email and you are supposed to write to this email to ask for leave for him saying you are his fiancee. He claims to be a widower of 7 years and having a 16 year old son, named Michael. 16 year old daughter being raised by nanny in Africa. Cut a story short they mention that they have one child in Boarding school, he is divorced and he mentions about the money they receive in Apello and it must be delivered to you and you need to sign for it but there must be a fee that you need to pay of 5 to receive the cash. Cobby Brown stated he was a contracted Surgeon with the U. Later he advised he had his Godson and some other people to help him but, he was still short of funds. When I informed Cobby Brown about being a scammer, he said more charming words to deny the fact.As I was in my 40's I thought I would join a site for over 40-plus dating which you pay a subscription for and I thought would be safe. Please if it stops just one person being scammed out of their life savings it will be worth it, I know I have lost all of my money but I won't let this evil individual bring me down, I would like to hear from anyone If I can report this low life to the FBI moneygram western union and RIA, I have so many emails from his so called colleagues maybe just maybe he can be caught. You deserve so much more than these low life's so please no matter how they flatter your ego and tell you how beautiful you are they are only after your money Yes you have been scammed big time. I know you cannot believe that he is a con but I was there and I know how hard is to accept reality. The email won't be good and he will ask for your login information for your email. You should block this "doctor" and walk away from him. He states he has been affiliated with the UN for 20 years and has been stationed in Damascus’s for the last 4 years... Coming back to Cleveland to open outpatient surgery clinic. Why should l pay to receive the money which is not mine. He was in construction In San Antonio, Texas, a widow, with a daughter. So Sad I’ve been communicating for several weeks with Morgan Travis. I’m embarrassed and humiliated to have fallen for this scam. Lastly, the turning point was when Cobby was chatting with me online and all a suddenly, he received a text from his nanny. He lost his wife 6 years ago to cancer and has a 14 year old son who is in a UK boarding school.Spoke for some time again very sweet talking sent nice charming images and emails.Had a daughter away at school, he was a widow for 5 years.Money outstanding and wanted me to transfer via Western union.
