Hi Nancy, I was talking to a guy name Powell Macaulay he was an engineer too he had a 8 year old daughter and a widower his wife die three years ago from breast cancer.And i was shocked to discover that its probably a scam. Needed i Tunes cards for daughter’s birthday b/c his bank funds were secured. He was on a oil rig in Gulf of Mexico his drill bit broke and needed money to fix it and then he asked for a i Tune card unfortunately for him he didn’t get any money from me. I'm going to play him back, just figuring out how.Plus, we've talked on the phone a few times, and he sounds more like a 20-something man than one in his 50's.I admit that I'm starting to fall for him, but there's been a nagging little doubt in my mind.
-They have their "friends, coworkers, family" build relationships with you so they can build up his "character", make him look good and real! -Photos sent to you mainly don't show their face.

An engineer in uk, widow, has 14 yold daughter, ask me he need vacation so he can visit me here, i was falling in love with him alread will still talking.He lost his wife in a car accident and she was pregnant. When I got wise to him I let him have it and he begged me to leave him alone and he would never get in touch with another woman online again. I said, yes, I am, and I put a spell on you, beware" he freaked out. We'd talked for only a couple of weeks when he told me he was leaving for the oil rig and wondered if I'd keep in touch via Hangouts so that's what we've been doing.But I've caught him 2 different times telling me discrepancies - his birthdate & his daughter's age.It's very easy to get stock photos or the really good ones even photo shop! I am going to tell him that my gf and I won ,000 at the casino and I want to go on vacation etc. the story is long and drawn out but it is the same cookie cutter as all of you...And just mess with him...see if he starts up again with the conversation. How do I post his picture on here so you can get a look at him ????
