Report N1 (added on August, 17, 2016)
This report deals with Karina Bachelor, the most difficult scammer I have come across. I almost believed that she was genuine. I met Karina via Web date, she told me that her father had died and she lived with her Uncle in Stockbridge, Georgia, a small town of twenty five thousand inhabitants. She was 30 years old. She had been married but her husband had cheated on her. She had no children. Her opening letters are very badly written, have repetitive phrases and are similar to ones that I have read from Ghanaian scammers.
She said she had gone to Webdate as a friend of hers had found her husband there and her friend was very happy with her internet spouse.
She told me that I was the first person that she had made contact with on the site and we began to exchange emails. In her mails she described herself as an accountant working at Wal-Mart.
She sent me a couple of photos and although she wasn't particularly beautiful she was still in my opinion very attractive.
We began to exchange love letter sand she soon told me that I was the man for her, age was just a number, she wanted to be with me, all the usual scammer chat.
On the second day of our internet affair I received 3 strange messages from her email address, the first two were in a type of African Pidgin English of which I could find no translation and the third asked me to prove myself, write my name on a sheet of paper and send it to her. I tried to mail her and find out what the problem was but it appeared that she was not receiving my mails as I heard nothing from her for around twenty four hours. When she did eventually mail me she asked why I had disappeared. We decided that she was being hacked and she changed her inbox entry code. All of her mails were by phone so no-one else would have had access to her inbox.
Our exchange of love mail went back to normal and over the course of several days I asked her to take selfies and send to me which she did.
The photos that sent were not taken at the time as there were distinct changes in hair style etc. Eventually I really was beginning to fall in love with this girl and to try to not complicate matters more I began to test her. I asked her to undress and take intimate photos to send to me, she told me that she would be pleased to do this but her phone camera was broken, she asked me to send her an unspecified amount of money to buy a new iphone so that we could chat on what Sapp and she could send me intimate photos. I said that I would do this the following day.
The following day I told her that I wouldn't send the cash until we knew each other better, she didn't seem to be at all put out by this.
I then began to try and back pedal my way out of the affair, this was difficult as she would only repeat her love for me and how we needed to be together, she even said that she was coming here to Brazil to be with me, said she would work to keep the both of us. I began to run checks on her and could find nothing except for three Facebook pages with the same photos of her, few friends and the fact that she was not an accountant at Wal-Mart but a cashier at the checkout. Also from her Facebook profile she had been to school and college in Stockbridge, so she had obviously lived there for some years.
She had given me an address in the name of her Uncle Matthew Bachelor to send the cash to. I ran a check on the address and found that there was only one person in the town with that name. One Matthew Howard Bachelor, aged 52 and living with his family but no family member with the name of Karina.
I then told her that I thought she was working a fraud and again asked her for intimate photos to prove to me that she was real, she became very annoyed, asked me if I was going to send the money and then asked me to send her $250.00 to buy groceries with. I told her 'No' and she ended our beautiful affair by telling me that I was a silly old man and to keep my money.
