Name: ricardo dipego
Address: 1071 w.15th st. chicago IL 60608 989-385-5096
Other Comments: This is the address this scammer gave me. There was a Ricardo at this address and he told me to be careful who I meet on the internet. This scammer sent me pics of a daughter he called Kate. And also of himself. I am sure they are not him!! He wanted me to send 800.00 to him because he was robbed and shot at!! He also said his daughter was badly hurt in the hospital. I am scared now because he has pics of me and my kids and I am afraid of being a part of this scam!! He also has my phone # and address. I gave it to him long before he asked for the money!! Stupid me!
Louis Manuel is a scammer, several alias's any pictures noted above
Summery of sites I found him on once I got suspicious
Louis from malibu on Perfect Match.com; email there was email@example.com
eneh01 from Beverly Hills on Match.com and mingles.com
LMM_68 tag name on date.com
Souldipper on passions network, which I believe is a california singles site
He's also been looking at sites that deal with Catholic and Christian singles, especially in the Chicago area in the last week.
Same/similiar story all the time
Widowed with a daughter Kate living at home
Some sites say he's portugese; some spanish
Some mother from north Carolina; some days from South Africa
Says his father died when he was 7
Sometimes claims to be an engineer/architect; sometimes a car importer/exporter
for eneh01; once claimed to be a ER Medical Doctor
Be very careful, if you've given out any personal information to him - change it or delete the email accounts whatever you need to do. Notify credit agencies to watch for strange activity; he makes up stories to ask for money
Also romantically comes on really, really strong.....and fast...

Ladies, when listing information on this site, provide as much information as you can....
email address being used
Yahoo mobile ID number or whatever iD is listed if he's sent you a text
Any phone numbers he's given out
Put the email address on this site - I'm willing to pay to have the searches done on who owns these accounts to see if we can find any similiarities
With the amount of women he's talking to daily, there's got to be more than 1 person involved.....
time for the FBI I think......

Here is some moore info about this..this prooves that he is an scammer...
He goes by Louis Jacob Manuel same story about his daughter kate. Widowed 5 years ago. Wifes name was Jane died of Good Pasture Syndrome. He says the right things at the right time and knows how to romance. If i wasn't so cynical i wouldn't have started a background check! he gave me a number from england where he is waiting for the 'cars' he bought for his clients all over the world in japan. He sent me the same pictures as above! Every single one of them (except for his daughter)! I haven't gotten scammed yet! Thank you all so much for posting this!
