He sent daily messages and photos I've now learned are those of Dr. Pinto.
He was highly romantic, even though I had doubts, I kept on it.
He said he's a widower - his wife and son died during childbirth 5 years ago. His parents died in a car accident when he was 5 years old, and he was raised by his grandmother.
He said he's an independent contractor in petroleum and road construction.
He said he's a dual American-German citizen, living in Brooklyn, NY, supposedly has lived in US for 20 yrs but still has a European accent.
Sometimes, he'd hesitate when giving answers or get confused.
He asked for iTunes cards for work and I'd sent , then I stopped when he made excuses about why he can't pay me or advance me funds in order to purchase them.
He was asking for my credit card username and password to pay me back!
He'd sent photos of an estate but when I asked for his address, he sent me two different bogus addresses.
On Feb. 13, he flew to Palermo, Italy on a multimillion dollar contract, and keeps asking for more iTunes. Promise of meeting me, buying a house and becoming a stepfather to my son upon completion of contract.
He said there was an explosion on the oil rig, 3 people injured and he needs more iTunes to reschedule new workers and turns mean when I refuse and ask questions.
He said he spent over $674,000 on pipes and a replacement engine. His most recent request is for me to receive $650,000 by courier from Australia on his behalf and for "us"! He's gone quiet because I asked him why his lawyer can't do so instead.
He also sent bogus contact info. of his lawyer - Gareth Jackson or Gareth Williams.
