Hi everyone:

I am new to this site - but I have read about romance scams a few years back when I was contacted by one.
Now years later I was contacted again with pictures of the the same person - a little older - but the same. Where can I post this and can someone tell me who the heck this guy is for real - and if someone was able to tell him that his pics are being used.

:?

Even if you find the real person he can not prevent his pics being used. He can only make it harder to use future pics by putting a watermark on them.

I think there should be a way to compare pictures if, for nothing else, we can all see if we were scammed by the same person. Or, in my case, because I so want them to get caught. At least my pics match the person I saw on the webcam but that just makes it more sad that I fell for the whole mess.

OK - here I am again - I asked him to give me some more pics - and here they are. I had been contacted with the same pic some years back as Donnard Williams from the U.K. - the one in the silver tie.

Then I found him with other names on the net: Emmanuel Lopez Smith / paul_clarkdowen1@yahoo.com

and now I was contacted with a new pic of him as 'Joe' from MySpace - it is listed as Joseph Nichols, and before as Alan.

Does anyone know who the real guy is in the pics and if he has been notified - obviously the scammers like his pics and keep using them - maybe he could put a waterseal on them - or something.

No, stay away from him. He might not be part of a big scam but that makes him no less dangerous since he changed his name. Stay strong. That's all we can do.

Once a person's pic is on the net anyone can steal it. It maybe the same pics but a different scammer. Scammers like to share information. This is the reason why some sites require you to post information of a scammer with others who are using the same pics. It makes it easier to know that a scammer or scammers are using the pic and it is NOT the real person in the pic doing the scamming.

Thank you everyone!

The guy is not asking about money yet - but I know I am not talking to the guy in the pic, because of his grammar errors. Anyway - take note that someone is using the same pics that have been on the net before.
I deleted 'him'.

Greetings
