Met a 52 yrs old widowed father with a 16 yr old daughter on the site. Been talking for a little over a week and have received 3 pics of him and 2 of his daughter. The man claims to be out in the middle of the ocean on a cheveron oil rig as a engineer, his 6 year contract ends on Oct. 31, 2010 and is ready to settle down and grow old with his future soul mate. The daughter is living with her maternal grandmother in Nigeria, first red flag. The pics I have received are that of a well groomed, attractive white male, all 3 pics are of the same guy just different ages. The daughter does appear to be a young black teenager, very pretty. All was going well ... plans on coming here to meet me the second week of November and if all went well he was going to relocate to here. I asked for another pic today and he refused. I called him which is a UK cell phone number, and when he answered he was crying. I asked him Bradley what's wrong?? He stated his daughter was involved in a car accident and is in the hospital. The hospital needs him to pay half of her bill so far or else they will discontinue treatment. The hospital needs $3000 but will take half. Chevron will not let him off the oil rig, and he has plenty of money in the bank but no way to access it. Now I'm talking to this guy from his lap-top computer and he can't do any kind of on-line banking..... second and last red flag for me, I'm running. This guy is good, really good, his grammar is excellant, spelling is very good, and he knows exactly what to say and when to say it. I could call the mobile number he gave me at anytime and I could reach him. Now he claims there was a 5 hour time difference between us and he stuck to that story pretty good. his background story was perfect. Born in Coppenhagen, Denmark where his father origionated from, and his mother was American but was there as a military nurse. He moved to America when he was 38 yrs old with his mom and he married in 1993 daughter born in 1994 wife died in 2003 from lung cancer and he's been on the oil rig since 2004. Very smooth talker his screen name on the dating site was caringfrancis55, he went by the name of Francis Bradley Ocher born July 8th 1958. Thank God I never gave this guy any money. Hope this helps keep him from trying it on anyone else. I'm going to attach the hospital report if it will let me. stay safe out there it's a scary place.....
