I had a message sent via Facebook from davidferrari44 around Nov 11,2010. Wanted to get to know me, etc. I have never ever received "rogue" emails via Facebook. I knew something was not right. Claims he is from Springfield Ma..40 (Dec 14,1969), went to school in Cambridge and is a veterinarian. Gave the pedigree of his parents and very little else. Note: the messages in Facebook that go to your email...look at the time stamps!! The time stamps were exactly 8 hours apart sending/receiving.

Asked for a Yahoo IM session. Did some research and couldn't locate this individual anywhere in the world. I wanted to catch him in the lies. I'm naturally curious, but very cautious. I agreed to set up IM in Yahoo. He said we could chat between 2-3pm. Notice he did not say "his" time zone or "mine"? I'm in Texas..not the same time zone as Massachsetts. Sure 1pm my time he is searching for me.
Same conversation...late father from Sicily..mother from England. Only child. Long gaps in the chat. I logged off and sent him a message via Facebook that he is not who he says he is. Said he would send me an email...not thru Facebook. This is just an excerpt of the garbage..
Sensuality is important to me, some of my favorite things are the salty taste of lobster simmering in a beurre blanc sauce, the smell of the ocean mixed with suntan lotion on a summer day, the cool, velvety softness of well-worn cotton sheets on a hot summer night, the gentle touch of a lover, the beauty of a home which has been designed to be inviting and welcoming, the sound of leaves rustling beneath your feet in the Fall.
[color=#FFFF00]The same exact words used in tons of these posts.[/color] Did some more research and found this board...with the same situations - only the names have changed. I chatted - if that is what you want to call it. He started out the very first contact and this Yahoo IM session with a question: How do you react when you get angry? Seriously?! I kept on asking questions - because I KNEW he was lying. He abruptly left the session.

On the Facebook page the email addresses are: and That is what he listed as email addresses. I've only been contacted by him via the davidferrari44 address. Please not fall for this. He friend-requested a woman I've known all my life and she ignored him. I told her I was investigating worries. I did report to Yahoo and Facebook. Use caution Ladies.
