They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine?If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer.After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account.The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.Once he completes the job he will get an additional 0,000. There's a man name Alex claiming to live in Beverly Hills, Ca that has contacted me on instagram.He has a normal routine and I know exactly when I am going to hear from him each morning. He said his name is Michael Williams which is very common. I have a picture of him and I just need to know if it's the same one.Then at his instructions..wired out to Africa and Nigeria!

Dear devastated, I feel for you for I was also a victim and lost all my savings and am facing bankruptcy, lost my job etc..by the Grace of God I am living by help from my family. He claims to be from Orlando FL and has a Orlando phone number.
My scammer's name was Richard Hutchings aka Rick Cudney, sent money via WU and MG to Zacharia Olawale, Olabode Dambola both in Nigeria, Krista Graziano and Tolulope Oloniyo both in TX, this scammer was clever and had so many "fake names" I had no idea. He was currently working in Israel finishing up a project.
I am hoping we can set up a private FB account where we can post names, phone numbers, pictures etc. I have all these stories too, from 2 guys at the same time. Someone in the government might be interested in all the information we have collectively?
It's like they all took the same scam training class. I am at the point where they will start to ask for money. That would be great to have somewhere to compare note's.
If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.
