    He send me this"
    Thanks for your mail and how are you today?I guess you are fine?Please I need your prayers.We are now at the Robben Island close to South Africa and our ship have develop a major fault and we are now moving at a very slow pace.Please Pray for me and the crew members that nothing happen to us.
    Dear Honey,

    Tragedy strikes on another of our own vessel after a sudden attack by some deadly sea pirate in the atlantic ocean, the sea route to africa .
    “REPORTER “ say two crew members on board have been confirm dead and the captain held hostage . Several Gun shots were fired for more than 4hrs, over $50m USD worth of crude oil was estimated as lose realized from this attack

    We have been mandated to sail through the atlantic ocean which is closer to south africa, which is another worst area for piracy. I'm so scared because the life risk involved in this case is 50/50 chance of surviving any attacked from these deadly pirates.

    My love, please pray hard for me in this situation. I am carrying some important valuables in this Ship which includes (My contract Documents, money, and the Diamond Neck-chain set I bought as a surprise for you). I normally carry money along with me because I buy palm oil in tones from Australia and africa and supply to a company in Mexico I have 2yrs contract agreement with.
    This is my first time to experience pirate problem.

    I have made arrangement with a courier agent in the Labuan Island sea port to deliver the package to you, including my business money for safety reason.
    Also provide the below details information requested to receive the package.
    *Your complete name .
    *Your receiving address:

    I will be coming to meet you within 14 days as soon as my ship arrive the final destination . Iive always hope to meet you; I am looking forward to that day with all my heart. I am preparing myself for you each day. Imagining what you could do when you come to pick me from the airport. What would you do? Will you kiss me, I will be very shy at first, but I will make the move to kiss you because I’m the man. No matter what, you are for me and I will love you regardless anything. I hope to grow old with you for the rest of my life. To celebrate good times with you and support each other through the bad times.

    Marriage is a journey that we will grow together through. We will learn things about each other every day. We will not always have good times but we will always love each other and work through our problems. My love is forever. So I promise you forever. We will have fun watching football games, taking walks, and watching movies. I look forward to that day and until then; I will be counting the days left and my heart full of love just for you.

    I was contacted on facebook by a white man claiming to be named Scoot Harry from Brooklyn NY. Claiming he was a Marine Engineer from the Marine Institute in Brooklyn, NY I looked up the company and said it's home Base was in India. The photos of the man looked like an East Indian. Was very romantic in speech quoting enormous amounts of prose/poetry.then we lost contact for three days and then called himself Harry Scoot proclaiming his love for me ; my soul mate etc. Stated he was a 57 year old widowed w/m with a 14 y.o. son Named Terry Harry who was going to "boarding school" since he was sailing to Austrailia.then his profile said he was working for Mediterranean Shipping Company. And he was on a trip to pick up Metal drums of crude oil to sell to Texas.Then more romantic relationship and stated he wanted to marry me. Said he would fly to Gainesville, FL airport to meet me in 3 weeks. Then he said the ships engine had a broken Brain Box and they were docking on the sea shore and that sea pirates were seen in the area .Stated the captain ordered the crew to offload any personal valuables. Said he was carrying a large amount of cash and wanted my email address my receiving (postal) address and my phone number etc and wanted to mail me a package containing his cash for me to keep at my house for safe keeping until we meet.Stated he didn't want to lose his life's savings and a bank loan he obtained prior to leaving Brooklyn. Stated there were stalls on the seashore of several security companies. The company he said he was going to use was called" The World -Wide Diplomatic Secured Security Company". I told my son who is a corrections officer sargent and he did some digging and sent me several websites with the same scenarios. One of the websites listed the scammer as Harry Scott. Well that website stated this other victim was contacted by a Dr. Leonard and wanted $11, 000 payment to deliver the package. Also he told me his email address was Harrysmith504@yahoo.com .

    This man preys on vulnerable women beware! His stories are better then a romance novel, but this man is dangerous. To all the woman out there be careful of this individual, he may lure in in with his poetic talk, but he is a fraud.

    I too have had a very similar experience. This time the man says he is lewis kelly harry from London working at Sanko Shipping with 2 young children in Florida. Other than that it is mostly the same script. Very flowery, loving and romantic notes. He too said his ship was attacked by pirates around Malaysia on their way to Australia and they had put into port.
    This is part of the Facebook messages thread. " I have made arrangement with a courier agent in the Labuan Island sea port to deliver the package to you, including my business money for safety reason.
    Also provide the below details information requested to receive the package.
    *Your complete name .
    *Your receiving address:
    *A direct telephone number to reach you:
    *your e mail:"
    I did send above info because it is available online. Email back from world diplomatic said they wanted $1035 to send package to me. No way am I paying that.. online research also indicated this was a potential scam.

    @V.Ann.H I have recently had a similar experience on Facebook with a man calling himself Doffo Unbertino - Captain and apparently owner ( !!! ) of large crude oil tanker. Chatted daily for 8 weeks which kept me amused whilst off work sick, stated how much he loved and cared for me etc. Then apparently on route to China after having left Singapore on Christmas Day - storms then Indonesian sea Pirates ( still maintaining internet connection throughout ) posing great threat because of valuable crude oil. Next day a long standard message about his money and valuables and the need to send them to me because he had suffered so much for them. They are now docked in the Mallacan Strait with no banks but security offices along the sea shore. ' my darling I know we haven't met but I trust you and will be travelling to meet you soonest '. Unfortunately ends this message with Regards Captain !! Wants my details so I will accept receivership . When I told him ( or I suspect different people using this name ) that sorry my son had said this would happen and I didn't believe him - despite his deep love for me I was blocked immediately !
    So ladies, watch out for DOFFO UNBERTINO on Facebook sea pirate scammer

    I also have been contacted by a man named Alan Gates with a 16 yr. old daughter named Mary He is using to help with this scam. I have received all the emails, but did not respond to the last two I did not send any info nor money. He also sent the love letters, said he wanted to come be with me. I am so glad I did my homework and checked him out. He also talks about a nanny, is using a phone which is a landline number. He also would not allow me to see the ship, or him, or her. BE on guard. His phone number is 19016140940.
    He is from Lima, Peru lives in Memphis, Tennessee. All the emails he sent I had checked out, and all of them were copied, and pasted, or copied and scanned. He also says he is a widow, and includes God in all correspondence.
