Posing on Match a month ago as Emerick August, claims lost wife Karen in car accident, raising daughter Sharon alone, born in Germany, lived most of life in UK, is currently in S Africa on a contract to build an office complex etc etc. I did not send any money although he definitely tried...waiting for a transfer from UK, spent his cash on building materials etc. Asked him to send me photos of him and what he was building and got song and dance about phone doesn't take pictures and wanted me to buy and send him a galaxy note 4. Received same pics....man holding little girl and her arms wrapped around his nexk, him riding horse, the portrait pic with the white shirt as well as an additional one of him ice skating with the little girl in an indoor rink. African phone being used... 27 73 518 6889. Also a stateside phone...775-737-2970 which I tracked as being a VoIP landline out of Nevada.
I really cannot believe I fell for this. I'm normally a pretty intelligent person. This guy contacted me on Chemistry.com. He calls himself Graham Chaplin. He says he was born in Tulsa Oklahoma and his father was American, his mother from the Netherlands. Father died when he was 3 and mother took him back to Netherlands and raised him there. She died when he was 24 and then he met someone he had a little girl with. He calls his daughter Jessica and he has a granddaughter. He is really good at this. He has a beautiful voice, including an accent I couldn't place. He seems very genuine and sweet and for some reason I wasn't alarmed. Of all the guys who contacted me on that site, he was the only one I responded too. Kind of funny, really. I'm disappointed, but he could have really hurt me. He speaks a lot about God and he sends Chris DeBurgh YouTube love songs. He says he's a Civil Engineer and he has a Linked In photo that says he is the CEO of Chaplin R. Construction in Tulsa. I'm sure this guy is leaving a trail of broken hearts in his wake. Wow.... this is really something.
If I'm to be honest, there were a few things that seemed odd but he was such a sweetheart, I thought I was being too suspicious. Voice didn't match the face; always a bad phone connection; vague answers to questions that should have been simple; speaking of love very early in; very pretty words but badly written sometimes in terms of grammar - I just thought it was his English. He unfortunately knows my home and cell number and my full name and work address. I hope he's not dangerous. Today is November 12, 2015 and I see from this site that he's been doing this for some time. I hope at least one potential target looks at this and doesn't get hurt by this guy. What a beautiful illusion.
Just wanted to comment here, my dear relative was 'almost' taken in on Match by an email from a women saying 'her friend saw her profile and wasn't on Match but wanted to meet her. My relative ended up in numerous conversations by a so called 'Emerick August' giving her the same BS as was written here. Thank god we kept on her to do a background check and VOILA! So sad that this SCUM is lurking around trying to win the hearts of decent people. People do you homework on these scumbags, Be smart!!!
