out,everything about this man or about this,guy,i want close sure from him,and i really want to know where he is,now,after receiving this video we,immediately got to work our search,specialist lenny started to investigate,more on this mystery man who claims his,name was jeff but a couple of days later,we received another email from margarita,informing us about her current,relationship with another man she met,online who claimed his name was frank,jeffrey peterson he even provided an,identification and sent her several,pictures lets see what our search,specialist lenny can dig up on both of,these men,dont forget to like comment and,subscribe lets get back into it today,im going to go through some of the,documentation that margarita provided,for us,first thing we have here is a drivers,license first name frank jeffrey,peterson,first thing i notice right away,is that this signature is backwards,everyone everywhere knows that when they,sign their name they sign it exactly as,its written they always sign their,first name followed by their last name,legal documents,checks second thing i see here is he has,an address 2564 24th stress,that sounds odd and its in all of,california one of the important things,that we see when we have a drivers,license is,the photo,thats you thats a great picture and,then you move on we dont look at all of,these things when we see a drivers,license,so in this case what im going to do,this these other documents that i want,to look at,are wires that margarita made and this,is on swede bank so these are swedish,forms,but here we see that this kelvin person,is in istanbul,we have one for kelvin,heres one for kennedy,and we have two more for kennedy,so,all of these are wires,the bad news is when,wires,send money overseas,they are untraceable there are privacy,laws theres government rules there are,international barriers wires cannot be,reversed,that said she can with the assistance of,her bank,work with the other bank and call these,suspicious accounts,that might do a little bit of good so,that these people cant keep moving,money through their accounts what we,know about money laundering is that,these people while theyre real people,most likely,theyre far away from the head of this,snake of a scam,now that linny has done her research,its time to meet with margarita for the,first time,how are you doing,im fine thank you,i know im doing well i really am so the,first thing i want to talk about is,the,money that you sent,to istanbul,can you tell me um,what was what was this money for,you have a little a little problem,with the oil because the custom cannot,release the oil if he dont pay the the,tax,thats why he asking me to borrow money,but he promised to me he going to pay,back when everything is going well,um you were doing due diligence you were,trying to make sure that everything was,on the level,yeah okay i tried ive got,four transfers here one is from kelvin,and two are from kennedy,who who are these people supposed to be,that live in istanbul,yeah that people i seen the money,this,gif told me,that first the people,its working together with him,okay so theyre colleagues,yeah,okay,all right well let me tell you a little,about this money then okay,one of the techniques that a scammer,will use,is they will move money to foreign,accounts,once it goes,its not recoverable we cant verify who,these people are and one of the things,that works in favor of a scammer is that,their government laws,there are privacy laws that are all,ruled over international lines so we do,we cant get a vet database we cant,find out who these people are but we can,assume that they are real thats a good,sign because they are real,well theyre real but theyve taken your,money and your money is not going to,come back,these are called money mules im sure,youve heard of that before,and a lot of times what

hello everyone and welcome to another,episode of scam fish presented by,socialcatfish.com on todays episode we,speak to a woman named tracy tracy is,from texas and fell in love with a man,online who claimed his name was alex,hobbs after sending alex thousands of,dollars tracy is starting to have doubts,about alex being who he claims to be,real quick guys we work really hard on,these videos and could really use your,help dont forget to like comment and,subscribe it really helps these videos,get more exposure your comment and like,could help stop someone from being,scammed,thanks everyone now lets jump into it,ive been in a relationship with an,online man for just over a year now i,wasnt looking i was playing words with,friends,he said hello and i said hello and it,just started from there he wanted to go,out to hangouts which i had never been,on so,he told me how to do that i believed he,was an engineer on an oral rig off the,shore of,germany,the comments started you know that he,would he liked me you know that was nice,and,sent him a picture and oh youre so,pretty and,he sent me a picture of him and we,talked all the time,several times a day,this went on for several months decided,we wanted to be together so,he was gonna get his paperwork together,so that he could come home,but he didnt have what he called a,deployment paper,he was uh had to take his paperwork to,the the u.n,and the u.n said that a new deployment,paper would be fifteen hundred dollars i,think that was when i sent,seven hundred dollars,cash,and it ended up being to a third party,here in the united states in virginia he,needed,steam cards for,mainly phone calls but then theres an,explosion on the,oil rig and he cant get to the doctor,and you know the pirates are attacking,their boats coming back into germany and,i mean all the things that that went on,and so then he needed money for another,plane ticket and,i think thats when i sent,another six hundred dollars to this,angeles,in virginia im i was im trying to get,away but,just cant,because my husband doesnt know this is,going on i dont know why my husband,married me,there has never been any romance in our,marriage,um theres no affection,uh theres hardly any talking,i kind of feel like its made,dont know why ive stayed but i have,neither one of us can can afford to live,by ourselves uh we kind of need each,other as far as uh,being able to have a house over our roof,over our heads um neither one of us,could afford to live uh by ourselves,these days with just our social security,incomes,in fact i just,uh im getting a part-time job,to help make ends meet,so,actually kind of funny im sitting here,at mcdonalds and this is where im,getting hired i go to orientation,tonight so,its kind of funny,i received two,refund insurance checks,so that gave me the money to send to him,otherwise i wouldnt have had that kind,of money i dont have that kind of money,so i wouldnt even been able to have,sent that but all of a sudden its like,oh,well heres some money i can send them,i have run across his photo on,linkedin,it was a different name it was tom gumet,guzman,i asked alex about it,he said that uh his photo was stolen and,being used,the next time i went into linkedin to,tom guzman,the photo had changed and the name had,changed,but,my message to tom guzman,asking him to contact me,was still there,but it was under a different photo and,different name,theres so many times i think yeah right,you know do you think im stupid,but yet i cant,i cant end it i dont know why i get so,mad at him and so,pissed,but yet,in a couple of days im right back to,wanting to be with him im reaching out,to social catfish just to see if youre,able to,find out who this guy really is,i cant let him go,because i fell so hard for him he still,says things and sweet things to me i,mean the last,message i got from was i miss you baby,i guess i need you to say the pictures,of the guy that you,think youre talking with,not him i need somebody to tell me that,i dont know how im going to get over,its really taken effect on me,after receiving this video from tracy,our team started to investigate alex,hobbs we used our tools on our site,socialcatfish.com,and found everything we needed it was,time to meet with tracy and tell her,what we learned dont forget to like,comment and subscribe guys lets get,into it,hi tracy how are you doing im fine,thanks good im really excited that,youre here today,i think there were a lot of things in,your case that we can review that will,help our viewers and also i i think it,takes a lot of courage but im also,really glad that youre willing to do it,because youve done something great,today,thank you,the first thing i want to discuss with,you a little bit is about steam cards,can you tell me some of the things that,he was asking,for in regard to steam cards,he needed money for medication for his,stomach ulcer one thing we can learn,from gift cards in general is they are,only good for the platform they are on,so steam cards are a gaming,card and they can only be used for,gaming,they can be used for medication they,cant be used to pay bills they cant be,used for phone minutes or anything like,that the second thing that i wanted to,talk a little bit was about this third,party,you sent cash in the mail to this third,party,yes and what was this cash supposed to,be for he had to submit papers to return,home and he said that he couldnt find,his deployment paper and i questioned,him about that word deployment because,that was for military use and,um you know he gave me some excuse well,we just use that too you know and,because the deployment paper uh,a duplicate was fifteen hundred dollars,okay so this third party was this,supposed to be someone in the the office,of deployment is that right,no this was just some guy in virginia,this i sent it to his house all right,let me tell you a little something about,sending cash in the mail when you send,cash to anyone that you do not know it,should be deemed suspicious and it,99.99,money laundering one of the things that,did impress me about you tracy is that,you did do some due diligence trying to,figure out,okay this is a correspondence from the,un,and you contacted the un,and what was their response to you,they said that they have nothing to do,with the return of contract workers back,to the united states so that this was a,scam,right one of the clever things that this,scammer did in this case claiming to be,the un,was he used an email address ending in,usa.com one of the things that we know,about usa.com,and if you go to their site it is very,clear they put a disclaimer emails,ending in usa.com are generic extensions,and they do not mean they originate in,the u.s its a free email provider,and scammers often use it when,they are masquerading as a customs agent,an fbi agent,or other agencies in this case the u.n,but those agencies have different,extensions the un as we saw from your,email you received is dot org,government is always.gov,those kind of things are things that,slip,our view when we are in this because usa,okay that sounds right,as part of your own research tracy you,ran the images on our site,and you found some fake profiles with,the image that you had is that correct,yes i found two different names three,different,sites i first found tom guzman in,linkedin and when i questioned him about,that he said that,this tom guzman had stolen his photo so,what you were really discovering is that,this image was used everywhere you met,him on words with friends,yes there are fake profiles on twitter,there are fake profiles on linkedin it,used to be that romance scammers would,use dating profiles only,but thats not true anymore,if they,can find a victim without paying any,money or setting up an extensive profile,making it simple they will linkedins,profile is this is to help someone with,business to get their name out there so,that feels real legitimate and it feels,like oh okay i can trust this site,linkedin is a reputable site

these scams happen all over the world,like weve seen them in turkey,istanbul a lot of the scams come out of,lagos nigeria and its just its really,like weve tried to dig in and try to,understand this,and its really just the culture and you,know so basically,theres a lot of um like middle-aged men,that groom like younger kids essentially,and so these,these kids are like 17 18 19 20 21 years,old,and they groom them and they teach them,how to do this and,and they they give them this playbook,and they um educate them,on on how to do it but they also believe,in like voodoo,you know so thats like a very big part,of the culture there and these scammers,believe,that you know once they grab hold of you,like theres no way youre going to say,no,and and so they use like voodoo and a,lot of what they do,and they truly believe that works um but,what they do is they,they target certain types of people and,so the types of people they target,they want somebody whos lonely they,want somebody who has,um you know maybe some like depression,issues,somebody whos gone through some tragedy,you know maybe a widow,um you know somebodys divorce middle,age the prime target is like somebody,thats like 35 to 65 years old,because you know in those in that age,range those people typically have,some sort of money or access to some,sort of money,um and what theyll do is they end up,telling you,things that youve never heard before,you know so if youre like 65 years old,and youve woken up every single day to,your husband right and your husband,passes away,and now all of a sudden you dont have,that person in your life after being,married for 25,30 years you are lost and you dont know,this like internet landscape and so they,go and they take advantage and they tell,you all these wonderful things that,your husband told you and that youre,like missing out in your life,and and theyll leverage kids so what,theyll do is,you know a big part of the story you,know a lot of them say theyre widowed,and they have like a kid and,and theyll have you chat with the kid,and to build like a bond and so weve,heard people that,you know arent dont have the ability,to have kids and,what theyll do is like build this bond,with this kid on top of the adult,that theyre you know dating um and,every time things go south,the kid will jump on and try to save the,day um,and so um weve like,and usually theyll start small they,dont always start small but usually,theyll start small like,you know a 25 itunes gift card or you,know small amount and go up from there,um but what weve talked we talked to a,lot of people,and what typically happens once somebody,gives money,um especially like in like 500 a,thousand or more,they hold on to the notion that this,person is coming back and its going to,pay him back,because now like you either go one of,two ways with this right you you,accept the fact that youve been scammed,and you move on right because youre,probably not gonna get your money back,or you hold on to it and you,you tell yourself okay you know what,this persons telling me theyre gonna,come back,ive given him this money my friends are,telling me that its a scam i have to,prove them right like,people are almost in this like like this,like good and evil like place where,theyre trying to um justify,the money theyve given because people,are telling them theyre dumb or theyre,stupid,um you know or just in their mind like,they havent told anybody,and they they dont want to miss out on,the money and they dont want to prove,that or you know that they have made the,wrong decision,so theres a lot that goes into it,theres obviously the love and,the affection part and these scammers,will put in,four or five hours a day chatting to you,so its not like a lot of people were,like well how could you give money its,like,what these people talk to these scammers,for four or five hours a day for 12,months you know like in their mind it,was a real relationship,you know and so this is what a lot of,these people go through,with these scams
Reverse Image Search with me – Ep. 1 (Romio)
would you accept a friend request from,this guy at this guy how about these,guys the photos dont belong to a man,called Frederick and they dont belong,to a man called any of the other names,all the photos used in these profiles,are stolen from dr. Pinto in this video,Im going to walk you step-by-step,through some private message requests,that Ive received and show you how I,check to see if the photos turn up in,any other profiles if they do and just,block those accounts theres no need for,us to talk to any of them so lets have,a look and see how we do that,Im Carrie ODonnell and on that scam,show I talk about different types of,scams that we can come across in our,ordinary day-to-day lives while were,doing things like reading emails using,social media doing internet searches and,that sort of thing so this first image,is my personal Instagram account theres,not a huge amount of activity on it but,it clearly shows that I am the host of,that scam show so youd think that,scammers would be less likely to send me,message requests I also have no DMS,written there anywho it appears that,romance scammers who are the most common,scammers to contact me by Instagram,dont read profiles so they will send a,direct message without having even read,this and at the moment Im actually,chatting online with one of these,scammer people so this guy admits to not,having looked at my profile before he,sent me a message and then when I asked,why he messaged me he couldnt come up,with any good reason about why so he,gives the standard getting to know,ourselves better thats a really clear,sign that this guy is following a script,that is setting up a romance scam,scenario lets go and have a look at,what turned up after I started engaging,in this conversation which is not,something I ordinarily do in the I dont,know three days or so for new requests,have tender every single one of these,message requests is from someone who has,a picture of the man thats not,suspicious by itself but lets look it,up with everything else,two of those pictures have a man with a,child and its such a common scenario,that the men who,setting up romance scams claimed to have,a child because they will use that child,later on as a way of asking for money,like the kid needs some kind of,operation or whatever but it also sends,a signal to the woman being targeted,that he is nurturer a carer a provider,and pull of those things that are meant,to be attractive to a woman Ive never,heard of this guy before I dont follow,any of these people they are all,following me as of recently and Ill,just add in here that I strongly suspect,that all of these profiles belong to the,scammer who Im already talking to as,his sort of backup strategies do they,not understand that you get dozens and,dozens of randoms messaging year going,high like why would you do that you,could put that in a public comment on,one of the posters just as a public,comment it does not have to be a private,message just to say hi from some random,so these are all suspicious and I,suspect that they are all romance scam,attempts so lets have a look at each of,the profiles in turn starting at the,bottom of the list with Romeo marchello,so when we open up the message requests,this is what we see and before I decide,whether to block delete or accept every,time Ill click on the link the account,link at the top and look at the profile,he has four posts zero followers and his,following 38 people this could just be a,brand new account somebody has just,started up with into Instagram but I,still think not so,lets have a look at whats in the posts,Im going to do a reverse image search,of all of these poor pictures to see if,there are any matches on the internet,but first Im going to open them up and,see what the captions are none of these,pictures have any captions so I can take,all of these screenshots and you can see,there are no captions,so why is this suspicious the reason is,that they are all loaded four days ago,maybe add some captions such as who you,are and whatever so when this guy first,started following me I went to his,accountant and I left a message on the,very first photo that he had uploaded to,ask why are you following me because I,thought if hes following what did I say,38 people or something like that then my,question would be a flag to those others,who might be checking out in his account,that somebody thinks thats a little bit,suspicious and weird anyway his reply to,my question on that photo was just a sad,face,no words so why do these people not put,any captions and not participate in any,conversations on their Instagram account,and that is they dont want to be,engaging in any off-script conversation,but this doesnt mean that they dont,know how because we can see on scammers,personal accounts that they make good,use of all of these things but the,English is obviously not good so it,would mean that maintaining the profile,with the fake identity,would be more difficult because the use,of language doesnt match up with the,impression created by his profiles this,little girl in the first photo Im,fairly certain Ive seen before so it,shouldnt be too difficult to find so,because Im using a tablet to look at,these accounts Im going to screenshot,all of these photos and send them to,myself in messenger so that I can use a,desktop computer and reverse image photo,search on the desktop so theres no need,to take any notes about the steps that,Im going to follow because everythings,going to be summarized in the,description of this video and Ill also,put it on the website okay this is just,a basic Google search tip I want to,search images Im just going to make it,easy for myself and well see up here we,click on this images tab that theres a,little camera icon so you can click on,that and search through your folders on,the computer to upload any image in one,or what you can do is just select an,image and drag it into the section so,Ive chosen one of ramírez images and it,says here that no other images of this,type have been found so the results,indicate some similar images so direct,match doesnt mean that its not a,stolen motor so down here we see a match,on scam Hatters United which is an anti,scam page that reveals scammers,typically open romance camp so we can,already see John Richard Jason shun so I,dont know if that is the real persons,or if thats the name of a bank account,so lets just have a look and see what,it says here so here we go this image,this persons photos used by the names,John Richard Jason Zhang Andres Cara doc,and other names on various social media,so we can see heres one of the accounts,that its been investigated by scam that,is United and they have identified that,its in stolen image same persons photo,being used as a different account the,same persons photo being used in a,different account oh this is interesting,here are some examples of emails that,have been sent by these fake accounts,what I find interesting is there is,something bordering me down here again,there is something bordering me because,they do cut and paste right one of the,messages I received recently from,romance scammer who I believe is,connected to this fake profile Ive been,looking up he uses the same term,something is bordering me so I just find,that a bit interesting and you know some,little clue that further connects the,fact that this profile turned up this,one here within days of me accepting a,conversation with this first romance,scanner so anyways we can identify that,Romeo is a suspicious profile simply,because the same photos have been used,in other profiles,lets not just settle for one we can go,and have a look at another of the probe,photos that this same switch back to,images that this same person put in his,private in his account on Instagram so,this one again doesnt come up with any,direct matches youve got nothing there,I could have another look on tonight to,see if there are any matches with that,so lets just go to 10a and see what,happens tonig
