Nigerian scammer on Singles.net


Another victim story sent to us from Singles.net


I am a 52 year old woman who lives in Nebraska. After many many years of not dating and wondering if I would ever find "the man of my dreams", I was contacted by someone off of the dating site "Singles.net" He claimed his name was Carl J Koestner and he was working over in Nigeria in an orphanage, because that is what he does in his hometown of Louisville, KY and he saw that they needed volunteers and deceided to go and help.

We started talking in Jan of 09. After one month the dears, and babes started coming. And after 2 months the I love yous were all over the place. I was promised the love of a lifetime, even had pictures of him and his "son" that showed me a very handsome man, who professed to love me and only me and promised me a lifetime of happiness. All the words that he sent were supposedly straight from his heart.

And this guy was good. Never once did I suspect anything. He even gave me his address in Louisville, and I looked his name up on People Find. Which I did find a Carl K. In Louisville. Then after 2 months the requestes starting coming. "Honey, I gave my money to the flight agent and saw that the prices of tickets had gone up and I am short 900 dollars." Can you help me out? And then the story about the flight agent who stole all of his money and the 400 I has sent and ran off. And even though I kept telling him to go to the consult because that is what they are there for, all I would get in return is "They will not help me. They say they will come and see me at the hotel, but no one has shown up" So still believing that this man, is my true love, I opened and acct. so that he could have the orphange in KY wire his money to it and I could then W. Union the money to him, so he could buy his ticket and "come home to me"


1 hour after pulling the money from the acct, my bank put a freeze on the account. After calling them, they told me that the money that was sent was "unauthorized' Came from another bank, but it was not given permission to do so. So now I have to pay back 1850.00 to someone who probably also got scammed. I consider myself a pretty astute person, and never would have thought that "I" could have gotten myself into this situation, but I did. And I want everyone to know that any Internet Dating Service is a very cautious place to be.

I am sure that there are honest guys out there,but never again will I go on any sight, just to find a date. I would rather be single the rest of my life than go through this again...But I am more aware now and have no on to blame but myself. Want to know how good these guys are? If you ask for information pertaining to their jobs, hometown, and such and you go and find all of that, by internet, why should you disbelieve? Of course there is a Carl Koestner that lives at this address in L. KY. And of course therr is an orphanage by this name in L. KY. And of course the address and Orphanage name he gave me in Nigeria is where it is.....And the photos he sent me are of a handsome man with his son, but not something that you normally read. They were not pictures of models. Just an everyday guy.

  7. Well guess what, thank goodness I did my research before falling into this scam. This same exact person in Nigeria has contact me through Zoosk.com
    Girls beware, BE VERY AWARE!!! this is his e-mail: kostcarl@yahoo.com and this is the phone number that he is using: 0112347085771564.
    I am so grateful that I did my homework, it just sounded to good to be true. He even sworn on the life of his kids (he has 2 a little girl and a boy) who knows if that's even true. I hope that he is punished if not in this lifetime then in the next. I feel sorry for all the women that got taken by him.

  11. That is just what I thought. I meet this same character on Mingle2 just several weeks ago and have been talking with him. He proclaims to live now in Addison Texas near Dallas and is a contractor in mining gold and minerals. I am very skeptical when people tell me stuff like this so I ran his IPS address under Melissa Data free look up and it came back coming from Accra, Ghana. I told him about it and he was really upset of How could I think he was doing that and what motive he might have as to posing as someone else. Anyway the next day, he is going to NC to meet someone there and call me from this number 828-919-6733 and was staying a hotel Quality Inn in Huntersville, NC. Needless to say, I call the hotel and there is no one by that name there. In our phone conversation he stated his partner- Johnson was there with him. Taking that information I google both names together and to my surprise, I found all you wonderful information. Thank you all for posting this type of information. I have no doubt he is a scammer. I did notify mingle2 to let them know. Oh, the email address his is now using is Carl_Koestner244@yahoo.com He also is using pictures of an old man with two kids, a boy and a girl as his kids. Actually looks like it could be his grandkids.
