Other Comments:
this is a letter I wrote to another lady that he was trying to scam.... it holds much of the infomation about him.... I have added in more info as well.

Hello Roz, you do not know me but I am writting to you to save you from an internet scam. I know it is difficult to believe but if you do your homework you will see for yourself that I am correct in the infomation that I am giving you. Please read on or you will be caught as I almost was. And I urge you to check the info that I will send you to prove it to yourself. I know Gabe looks too good to be true.... and he is. I am not a jilted lover, I am one of his many attempts at internet fraud. Please I urge you not to give him your credit card details. Let me explain.....

'Gabe' contacted me through ' ARe you interested' on Face book (but he is on many other dating sites around the world) he very quickly declared his love for me and told me he would come to Australia to be with me. No doubt he has already gotten to that point with you too. Soon after he began communicating with me he told me that he was leaving facebook because he had found his true love. I suspect that his previous scam victum reported him and facebook closed him down. He also changed his msn address, perhaps to avoid his previous victum. I found his new profile by doing a search with his new address as stated above (his previous address was If you google his name you will see that he is on numerous sites around the world. His previous profile was Gabriel Douglas McMadden. but he goes by Gabe Madden also and Douglas Madden and possibly other names too. I don't think he is one person tho. If you are alert when you communicate with 'him' you will see that he 'forgets' important things that you talk to him about. He says he has 'low' memory then there is a break in him writing to you while (I assume) he checks the info they keep on you.
He will ask for your credit card to pay money into your account but he will take money and disapear. I told him I have no credit card and he is presantly trying to pay in 3, 800 to my accout that I am to send via westernunion to his suposed travel agent for his flight to Australia. This is money he is trying to launder so there is no trace back to him. Please call the ACC to check (phone 1300 302502) email: I do hope this money he is trying to transfer to me is not from your account already. 'He' sends hoax emails pretending to be the bank and asks for personal info.... bank accout/ID and password. When that victum gives their info he accesses their account and transfers the money to his 'love' who then is expected to transfer it using westernunion. Westernunion is untracable but the transfer from the accessed accout to yours is tracable. And you will have to repay the money and may face charges!
He will give you a phone number that you can call to get him....+44 which is the UK prefix but the number begins 703 which is a 'follow me' number and can go to anywhere in the world.... not neccessarily the UK
He will not give you a landline number. Look in to check for yourself that the number is dodgy
He says he is on dial up internet and if you ask questions that he does not want to answer ( like... can I have your landline number?) he will 'have connection' probs and go off line. He says he works in Technology industry and invests millions in Macquarie telco.
'Gabe' will also give you his ID and password to his email account at (His ID is.... mcmadden.gabe@ and his password is 'loveiswicked' )where you can 'check' on his supposed wealth and see that he has been offered the managing director job of the Maquarie Telco company. Get in there and read the very poorly written emails.... they are a fake and not from Maquarie telco as he says. They are from
I urge you to be very careful. Google everything you can think of..... Google his name, google scams, this is called a Nigerian 419 scam
Be careful. I woke up to the scam and have protected my self (I think, I hope)
If you accept money into your account and transfer it through westernunion like he says, you will be laundering money and the authorities will demand that you pay the money back. There will be no link to him. But there will be evidence that the money was transfered into your account. You will have to pay it back!
Do not challenge him with this info because he is very skilled in scamming and will convince you that he is true and honest and that I am a jilted lover or some such thing. Do your searches and discover for yourself that what I say is true.

Yours Sincerely

PS Good luck to you to not get caught in this scam

Even is there a real person called Gabriel McMadden, these photos are clearly not of him as they have been identified multiple times as belonging to Ross Yerger.

Ladies, don't get caught up in the pic and the name, none of it is real!!! These are all generated by young boys in Nigeria known as Yahoo Boys, who invent 100's of identities just in order to suck you in and steal from you.

Beware of being contacted by someone after you have lost money to a scammer, I have heard of a new scam where someone pretending to represent a Recovery Agency writes to victims and claims they can retrieve the stolen money --- for a fee of course!!! another scam, don't fall for it.

If you are contacted by someone from a dating site, immediately ask them to send you an email, create an anonymous one especially for this purpose. Once you receive it, copy and paste the email header into the 'email trace' page on
This will tell you straight away where the email originated from. Everyone I have suspected of being a scammer, their emails originate from Nigeria!! Best to know straight away who you are dealing with before giving them any info of any kind even your yahoo ID. I've had people claiming to be NZ, Australian, Welsh and UK and all have sent their emails from Nigeria.

If you are already chatting to someone and feeling sus about the stories that don't add up and the broken english and the over the top emails and chats of undying love etc, check them out!! Even if they haven't asked for money yet, they will!!! Eventually they will travel to Nigeria for some reason or other and then it will happen.

I have been in contact with this man too and he also uses Gabe Eric Batistuta.
I have sent some money for him but had to send it to his so called travelling agent. I found out that he was scamming me and I asked him about being part of a scam and he said that he wasnt. We argued alot. I called him a lot of names and he kept trying to contact me for weeks after trying to tell me how much he loves me and misses me and sending me loving emails. He said that he wants to come to Australia to marry me.
Also he has investments in McQarrie Telecom communications.
He is still trying to talk to me on yahoo messenger.
He also gave me the same address No5, Sheenewood Str, Sydenham, Se26 6Bh, London
and his phone number 0011447024401465
Please be careful and dont get sucked in by him. He is a looser.

I'm feeling soooo stupid!....Lucky something clicked into my mind when I finally forced him to give me a call to my mobile....did'n want him to have my land line number....
Apparently everytime he is going trough the process of booking a plane ticked for meto go and meet him to USA, something comes up.
I even bought some expensive electronic stuff for him..but thanks God I didn't give him my credit card detail for him to pay the money in there...I told him that he will pay me when I'll arrive there better, that way I won't need to pay commisions here when buying American Dollars.
He told me he's travelling all around for work and family the last one, he had lugagge stolen, and ask me to send the stuff overthere, gave me an address in Ghana, where he suppose to be working for about three weeks, and only want the things to be sent by Fedex.....
Initially I thought about returning the electronics, but definitively I'll keep them for me
