I met this person on okcupid. He went by the user name lovingyou1566 and then sincerheartluv. We communicated by email and phone calls for about two months. After the first two of communication, he said he had been awarded a project contract in Liverpool, England. After a couple of weeks in Liverpool, he started running into problems. First he lost his wallet and then he said that his equipment had arrived for his project, but he was unable to get his equipment out due to the fact that it went over what his contract budget would allow. He started asking me for money to help him with retrieving his equipment from customs. At first he wanted $30,000.00. I told him NO. Then as each week went by, he would ask for less. The final request was $3000.00. Needless to say, I did not give him any money, and he stopped emailing me. I was also contacted by another woman who had also been dealing with this Michael Schwab from a different dating site. He also tried to scam her for large amounts of money. He used a different photo than the one site that I met him on. i want you ladies to know that this guy is very good at what he does. I don't want to see a woman being taken advantage of by these online dating scammers. I also want to add that he copied all his love letters to me from lovingyou.com Each email sent me was new and titled in the subject line. (The titles were the exact titles of the love letters he copied from lovingyou.com) Ladies, he goes by the name of Michael Schwab, he says he is originally from Iowa. He says he owns a Pipeline Engineering business called Revolution Engineering, Iowa. Please beware.

I met 'Andre Bradshaw' on OKC 4 days ago. His screen name is Dimeandre51 and says he lives in Marina del Rey, CA and works as a real estate developer. His profile shows 2 photos: one of him getting out of a pool while wearing sunglasses, another of him having fallen while skiing or snowboarding with the same sunglasses. He also has a fake Facebook page with the same photos and one with a dog and 2 boys. He started the FB page in October 2012. He has 7 photos total. All of his FB friends are women with the exception of what he wants you to assume is his brother.

Day 1 we IM'd for a bit but I had to go. He asked for my phone number and I gave him my cell. We texted for the next 3 days but things seemed off. He would not directly answer my questions, would not talk on the phone. He said he wanted to get to know me first. He also sent texts at weird hours of the night. One morning he sent a text saying 'good morning, honey'. That was the real tip off that he was a scammer. The phone number he is using is 424-645-7844.

His first OKC message said he had lost his wife 4 years ago to breast cancer so smoking was a turn off. Then in his questions, he said he'd date a smoker. Another red flag.

Watch out for this guy! I just blocked his number on my cell so I won't receive any more texts. I'm sure his profile will be taken down soon.

Update on Michael Schwab. I have been in contact with him for the past three weeks only his name now is Joseph Richards. It is the same exact story. He got a contract as a pipeline engineer, flew to an oil rig in the Irish Sea, lost his wallet and the last of his equipment was tied up in British customs. Yesterday when he called to ask for money, I told him I could not help him. He emailed this morning which I'm sure will be the last as he will not get any money from me. His email is: joed198@hotmail.com His company is Joed Engineering in Omaha but says he was raised in the Czech Republic. His phone number is 402-403-9086. Here's his letter. All the rest of the letters were like form letters, copy and pasted love letters, same as described by previous women. This guy is scum. Let's keep this going so maybe more women can be saved from sending him money. He found me on okcupid but I can't remember his title because I exited the site.

'Hey baby,

The equipment is with the British customs and I need to get them out before Friday to avoid paying demurrage. My money is tied down in Italy due to my last project in which I had to pay my workers with my personal funds. You can wire the money to my clearing agent's representative who is the States because if you want to send the money to England, It will take up to 3 to 5 working days before I receive the money. Whatever financial penalty you will have to pay, I will pay for the penalty as I am returning your money to you. Baby, I will really appreciate it if you can use any other excuse to collect the money from your brother, I have never asked anyone for help before and I really feel shy about this. I am comfortable knowing I told only you but with a 3rd party knowing, I don't feel comfortable with it.

Love always,'

Here is a picture he sent me. Looks like he used someone else's photo.

Omg!!!! This is the man JOSEPH E. RICHARDS who has been proclaiming his undying love for me too since beginning of October. I also met him on the same website. Said that he won a mechanical engineering contract in the Irish Sea and would be gone for 2 to 3 weeks. Before he could meet me, his brother in Nebraska had a terrible fall down the staircase. He had to rush over to the hospital from Houston to see him before he left for the job. Joe had written me daily and called at odd hours. Last week , there was a mysterious fire while his employee was doing welding on deck. With everyone rushing around he somehow lost his wallet. The next day or two be was ready to go to customs to sign out the final equipment. Low and behold, the taxes and fees were $20,000 HIGHER THAN EXPECTED.he never asked me for money for this...however I knew what was coming. So...that same night I started the net research and discovered there was no info on him...nothing. His company is out of Omaha, Nebraska and called Joed Engineering. It is a 'shell company'. He told the basic version of his life story...born in USA, dad died at six, and mom returned to Czech. She remarried and had a kid. Joe married and was widowed. He left Czech in 2001. His phone number is based in Nebraska. His picture is of a extremely handsome man. His voice sounded French but he said it was hungarian. I hate that other women were taken in by him. He and his team are brilliant at the poetry...the loving messages...the sweet talk.i really was starting to fall for him...now it is just vapor!!! Women beware!!! I will post his pic next. Btw...the pic this scammer used matched the pics of other scams. The poor real man doesn't have a clue his picture is being used like this. Protect yourselves bc this man deserves a fucking Oscar!
