Michelle.Vanburensignhotmail.com / Internet scammer
I am not sure if I have filled out the above information correctly, but this is a complaint about an internet scammer I encountered on Cheating Wives Datelink. My name is Stephen Woodcock. I live in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I encountered Michelle Vanburen on the above mentioned website, and we immediately went offsite to email and chat to develop what I believed to be an internet romance.
For well over 2 months, we emailed and chatted toward an eventual meeting. Twice during this time, she requested that I send her money. The first time, it was a request for "The provision" to pay for an airline ticket to Canada. This was at the end of July. I said I could not afford that, and that I would save to go to see her in Swindon, UK in the spring. In early September, she said she was going to the Philipines to obtain seeds for her grandmother's farm, which she said had been paid for, but not delivered. This message was accompanied by professions of affection for me, and a request for money. Believing her affection, I offered a small sum which I could afford to spare. Her response was an obscenity-laced tirade that she did not want a "poor man" in her life, but one who could provide money whenever she requested it.
I saved all of my emails, and most of our chats, originally as a momento of what I believed to be a budding romance. I am now glad that I did, as she has shown herself to be a scammer. Michelle gave me an address that Mapquest could not confirm, a cell number that just rang incessantly, and eventually acquiesed to my request as a friend on Facebook, just after her latest request for money. Like everything else she did to supposedly reveal herself to me, it was another dead end that did nothing to confirm her identity conclusively. Despite this, I was supposed to provide financial aid.
While chatting, she took inordinate amounts of time to reply, as if she was either consulting notes, or conducting multiple chat sessions. Everything about her was murky, inconclusive, or just did not stand the test of veracity. I have voluminous amounts of proof in the form of emails and chat sessions, which I saved as Word documents. Please respond to this complaint at the above email address, and I will gladly copy and send all the proof that is required to revoke her account due to Terms of Service violations. Thank you for your consideration.
