Untitled Dating Scam , #19009
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Christian Giovanni
Email Address:
   vannichris@aol.com
Dating/online relationship, claimed he was a widow with 5 yr old child then he started a works project in Spain which ran into difficulties as he supposedly had to pay spanish residency taxes amounting to about $35,000 in order to restart the work. I fell hook, line and sinker !!
Asking for money (stupidly I sent £300 as I didn\'t know about scammers at that point).

The photos he sent were all fake (incl home and work project} and I have google imaged his photos and they actually belong to a Pastor Matt Smith in USA. He obviously isn\'t called Christian Giovanni but have no idea of his real identity

I believe he has also used the email add christiangiovanni@aim.com

He first contacted me in February via facebook but his profile is now gone!

Hope this info goes to helping another unsuspecting soul.
