LOL, Oh my goodness, LOL, I cannot believe it. The following from the Alan Armstrong post is almost an exact quote from an email Jamie Grant sent to me early July 2009.

[quote]It's 4.00am of the day and I was thinking about you, as usual. I want you to know how much I sincerely love the countless hours we spend talking. It means so much to me. It truly seems like I've known you forever and I honestly can't imagine life without you now. There will be no looking back, no second thoughts and no regrets. I love you and only you ... and that love will only grow stronger. Sometimes life hits you with unexpected things that take you totally by surprise. All I can say is you're the best surprise life has given me and your capacity for love, caring, and understanding never ceases to amaze me. I've truly been blessed by finding you and I'll never let you go.[/Quote]

The only difference in his email to me was 'it's the evening of the day'

Jamie Grant[/Quote]

Jamie claims that: he was widowed 4 years ago when his wife died in a car accident, he has two kids (Janie & Steve) both at Oxford University, UK, and that he holds a BS, MS, & Ph.D. all in math. Claims that he is self-employed as a construction project manager ($250,000+/yr). Says his father was German, mother was Spanish. Calls his accepnt 'a heavy German accept' but it sounds French to me. He sometimes speaks playfully high voiced with heavy accent, but when off-guard speaks in a slower deeper tone with slight accent.

He claims he has not dated in the 4 years since his wife died (Spring 2005) in a car accident when she was delivering a big check to the orphanage in New Mexico.

He told me not to speak to any other men, to close down my MySpace page, and he even asked me for my MySpace login and password so his daughter Janie could add some things. LOL, what a guy, eh?

Claims to live in Norfolk, VA and also has a home in Plano, TX.

He 'fell in love' with me within first week, 5 days after I replied to his message he said he had to go to Denmark to put a bid on a job. Then the games began.

First he asked me for, and unfortunately for me, got me to WU $100 to an orphanage. When i asked for the 501(c)(3) nonprofit info, he got upset and said it was new. I am a strong Christian and thought, oh, I can give $100 to the kids. It's God's money, I don't need the tax deduction. Stupid me.

This man asked me, but did not get answers to: (1) when I bought my home and how much I paid for it, (2) my mother's maiden name; (3) last 4 digits of my SS#, (4) for one of my credit card numbers.

He said one of his clients didn't want to pay him but he would pay me. So he wanted me to give him the above information so the client could put the money into my credit card account then I would transfer it to him. HA! I asked him if I had I AM AN IDIOT stamped on my head. LOL He got very upset.

Then, he asked me for $1,200 to get the bid for the construction job in Denmark. Then he said he needed $1,700 for an airline ticket home. He said he's always paid cash and thought they'd give him $3.5 mil in cash rather than check. LOL, yeah, right. Then he said that he was picked up by police at Copenhagen airport because he skipped out on some of the hotel bill. But, he wan't jailed, lol. Rather the 'manager' was making him stay there (for 3 weeks so far) until he could come up with money to pay for the room. LOL, oh, yeah, right. The manager lets him stay free of charge for 3 weeks until he pays the $1200 he owes for one week's stay? LOL

So, up to yesterday a.m. he has been trying to get $1500 out of me so he can pay the manager $1200 for the first week and laptop rental Oh, yes, he claimed that he pawned his laptop and an Italian suit for money so he now has to rent the laptop. He asked me to pawn my personal and household goods up to $1200 when I told him I didn't have the cash to send him. LOL, then he asked if I would fly to Virginia and pawn items from his house. HA, yeah, right. He was going to send me to rob someone's house? LOL

BEWARE, he even set up fake YM address claiming to be his dauther Janie Grant at Oxford UK who only seemed to IM me when Jamie and I were chatting and she would always say 'please don't hurt my dad' right before he asked me for money. This guy tries to cover his bases, lol. But, there are always holes in the story, and I hammered him with questions all the time. LOL, I keep laughing today about how hard this guy had to work trying to scam me.

He sent me flowers and a teddy bear the Thursday before 4th of July holiday. Then, called me that night to say, 'I showed you I love you today with the flowers. Now, you show me you love me and send me the money I need.' NOT!

LOL, but I work for a huge international law firm and the idiot knew it. I played along and finally, yesterday morning I told him I'd try to send him the money and asked where to WU the cash. He gave me This information: Olawale John, 3 Adeyemi Street, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria 23401 'What is money for: Bills'

Then, he made the mistake of texting me, for the first time I might add, from the address. I Googled that and bingo! It let me here to this dating scam site.

I emailed and texted him that he was going down and should I notify Homeland Security about this. THIS GUY DOESN'T FALL DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT, lol. He bombarded me with emails but didn't realize he was sending them to my law firm email. lol, which are saved FOREVER. When I told him 'I am at work and very busy' he then said, 'oh, okay honey, do good at work' and stopped. Until I got home. He bombarded my IM with threatening, 'You'll regret sending me away' and called me 20 times on my pda between 12:45 a.m. and 3:45 a.m. I had the sense to turn off my pda before going to bed.

I could go on and on. He endless IMs, emails and phone calls. Sometimes giving me zero or 2-3 hours sleep night after night. But, just be warned. This guy is a PEST and he has no problems using Jesus' name to try and get his money. Sending me Scripture every morning, obviously copied off the internet.

LADIES BEWARE. This guy talks a good talk in the name of Jesus and does seem to know his Bible.

I am going to notify MySpace and see if I can get him off of there.

At the very least, I hope this info helps someone out there. This is CURRENT. This guy contacted me June 7 and I got a Bible Scripture from him when I got to work today. After that, it has been quiet. But, it's been one heck of a wild and crazy month!

He sometimes dissapeared for 2 or 3 day. Always after those times, his IM slang would change (improve) he'd use diffent emvironments (IM wallpaper), the kissing and hugging smiley faces, etc.
He swore he had never IM'd with anyone but he sure knew from the beginning how to use IM and how to load the Falling Hearts wallpaper.'
