Now his gas turbine exploded, eventually killing his friend, Richard. He then says he sustained head injuries from a helicopter crash while visiting a friend in Bolivia. Needs extra time to get treatment. Says he has no scars or anything from this.
Admits that the house he owned in Texas belonged to Richard who died and the pictures were of Richard. Told me he was 57 - send me pictures that he said were of him - that of a man in his 40's.
And now he says he's working "undercover" in something very secret but that he'll be back to the states in January. January is here - he's still there. I finally told him top please leave me alone...ever so often he'll send me a smiley face on my Yahoo IM.
They drag this stuff out for such a long period of time - it's so funny knowing a person is lying and they just keep lying.

Same details as the person from California. Met him on Craig's List. Got really lovely dovey quickly - started calling me his "WIFE" and Mrs. Baker. We were going to get married and stop working and spend the rest of our lives loving one another. He was going to take me to Tahiti or Paris....that's what it always was - Tahiti or Paris.
Flew to Greece to repair turbine == had accident. A monkey wrench was left in the shaft of a turbine and it exploded, wounding a man named Richard who was in a coma for awhile.
Neeeded to raise $375,000 - raised all but $40,000. When I offered to loan him the money, he quickly sent me information to mail the money to the parts vendor in HongKong. As he was sending me that information I was IMing him that I wasn't a fool and had no intention of parting with my money without any collateral, etc.
He wrote me a nasty letter, telling me to "go fuck yourself"....then apologized as I told him I had lots of money. As I write this on 2/9/13, I think we're still friends. He hasnt written me today, but we talked yesterday.
Says he owns a large home in Houston, TX pm West Oak Drive and a Mercedes and motorhome - said he moved to Dundalk,Md. and bought a home on Ormand Road so he could obtain certain business in the area.
Said his daughter was Tina and a grandson, Wyatt. First she lived in Texas, then she's with him in Baltimore and then she moved to California at the end of last year. She bought flight tickets to Colorado to see a well-known country star and they flew from Baltimore to Colorado on New Year's Eve.
He called me numerous times. Has a squeeky accent - German - really whiney tone. I threw away all the phone numbers in an attempt to clean him out of my life, but the one phone he was calling me from in Greece was coming from Nigeria and he tried to fully explain that.
His other phone was a "Magic Jack" phone - which didn't make sense for such a successful business owner not to carry his personal phone.
Even though he tried to scam me, I felt something wasn't right 2 weeks after we started chatting.
