| Online Dating ScamMet this person on ChristianMingle.com. He called himself Martnez George, but his email name was Falimar Martnez. He seemed very interested in me. He quickly became infatuated saying that he wanted me in his life forever. He stated he was an engineer on an offshore oil rig off the coast of Louisiana. He sent pictures of a good looking gentleman about my age, one of which looked like he was on the job site. He stated he lost his wife two years ago and had an 18-year-old daughter going to school in New York. He was obsessed with being open and honest and repeated things like \"you are the only one for me\" \"I miss you so much\" \"I am yours forever.\" He stated he was from Scotland but had a middle east accent. His grammar, punctuation and spelling was terrible even though he claimed to have a Master\'s degree. After he felt I was committed to the relationship, he asked if I would send his daughter, Messi, a birthday present because he would not be able to and this was the first time he would miss his daughter\'s birthday. He had his \"daughter\" send me an email, but the writing style was very similar to his. When I asked for verification of his daughter, he became upset stating I did not trust him. He played heavily on the \"I\'m a God-fearing man\" statements. He virtually insisted I send his daughter some money via Western Union. I was to send it to a man named Michael McElroy in New York. I could not find any information on any of the names he gave me. He would not give me an address to send the money to. His daughter had no phone. He then requested that I send $350 instead of $50. At this point I did a Google search for offshore oil rig online dating scams and the next time he texted me I told him I was reporting him to the FBI.|
