Scammer Bill Arthur on Match.com


Ladies beware a very handsome man named Bill Arthur, working in Nigeria purchasing textiles, gold, fabric, antiques to bring back and open his antique store in Boston., claims to be from Boston. He says he's a widower for 5 years now. He moved to Boston from California one year ago to start a new life and leave his sad memories behind. He claims to have been born in Austria to an Austrian Dad and a mom from the Bahama Islands. But, sadly, he's an only child and his parents died together in an auto accident 8 years ago...
He slipped up and sent me an email that I had received a few days ago from another man on Match.com. I recognized it immediately and called them both on it. I reported both user names Pete000000NEW to Match.com and Bubblesmileyman9. They both sent me different pictures. One man had a child, one did not. One was a widower, one was divorced. One was from Boston, one was from NJ. But, I got an identical email from Bubblesmileyman9. He will immediately ask you off of the website IM and uses affectionatebill1957@yahoo.com for email and chatting. Luckily I caught on before things went too far but he had me hooked a bit with his lovely lines and romantic talk. He will call you baby, hun, sweetie a lot and very early one, I mean within the first or second email.
My advice, as the dating sites warn, don't give out any secondary email or IM addresses until you have spent weeks and weeks getting to know someone or you have met them in a public place to verify who they are.
The old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true it usually is.....Go with that, it is very accurate.
Mostly, follow your gut and instinct. if it goes too quickly and sounds too tragic, get out!!



A SAMPLE OF ONE OF HIS OH SO CHARMING LETTERS!!!!

You sound like all I want, you are my perfect match. I am really going to put a lot of effort into writing this letter to you in hopes it will provide you with a good understanding of who I am, what I am all about, and what has made me the person I am today. The reason I am going to write a letter rather than just send a message is because I am serious about wanting to establish a quality friendship with you, and because of the fact I rarely contact anyone on here, so when I do you can be rest assured I am serious about my intentions. Smiles, you are welcome darling, i am blushing right now. I am sincere man, and i will never do anything to hurt my woman. I'm really a honest, caring and trustworthy man. I do not tell lies, I'm very simple too.

I decided to move here because of my business and I need privacy for my future due to the memories of my late wife at my former home. I have lived here close to a year now, the worst part of it is I have been unable to meet the right woman yet because of my wants. I believe that our faith is the very foundation of our lives, and also of a great relationship that will endure the test of time, I am looking for a woman that will be able to listen to me , communicate his feelings to me , make me laugh, hold and comfort me in need, stand by my side, respect me, passionate lover in every way, support me in every way, love me and only me, make me smile, protect me when needed, romantic time to time ,constantly reactive, and treat me right, I hate cheating/double dating for that I am one woman man... I know you will think what is a good looking man like me doing on here... Yes the reason I came on to the internet to find the special person who deserves all the love and passion that makes up my heart and soul is because I do not have the time to meet others out in a public setting, and the fact I feel you can learn so much about someone through letters, as a person has to take there time and think about the words they want to express, so it allows you to gain a better understanding of someone than you would probably otherwise.

Yes i got into the US when i was 10 years old, and we moved to the states It was really a great move, cause I've always wanted to visit the US. My parents passed away some years ago, and i really do miss them a lot, they mean a lot to me. I am the only child of my parents, and i miss them so very much.

About my work, well i have stores i sell all this things too, but once i get back home i want to set up my own store and i am so glad i want to do this. I'm going to name the store Arthur Antiques & CO. I really can't wait to get back home anyways, cause i want to meet you too. You really caught my attention sweetie. am into Sales and Marketing. I am into buying and selling of antiques, fabrics, Sculptures, and Gold, other things like Textiles. I am currently in Nigeria right now as we speak, i came here to purchase this items, and i want to set up my own store when i get back home. I got here 3 weeks ago, and i will be coming back to the US in a couple of weeks time, next week i should be home i think, because i would love to meet you. You really caught my attention, and i would like to know more about you. My work has never take me out of the states for work before, but this time, It seems to take me far miles..

Dear The very reason I am interested in establishing a friendship with you is because I feel I have a lot to offer you in the way of a friendship and I know I have a lot to share with you that will be of interest to you and even some things that will surprise you. I am very much a man of substance and I am very unique in today's society because I live my life through my spirituality and through the word of God and because I have such a strong understanding of what I feel my role in life is suppose to be. I am a man of integrity and my word is my honor!. I have very high standards for myself and my life is all about providing love, peace and happiness to others. For you to get a better understanding of me picture a waterfall in your mind and instead of all the water overflowing it is all the love and passion I have in my heart to give to others who are deserving, as the love and passion has an endless flow coming out of my heart.

Where others write many people and keep there messages short because they are all about how many they can write, I am the opposite and very selective in whom I choose to write and I like to give them my very best even if it is in a long letter such as this. I know the type of person who I want to build a friendship with so I am willing to put the time and effort in my messages to show that to you.

It is better to try and fail than to give up and never know if you could have succeeded.
Hugs and Kisses,
Bill



Pick Up Lines That Work

  1. aka Bill Arthur...Well he got to me as well. With the exact same bio as above. And he just never gives up. This time he told me he is from Denver CO with a 8 year old daughter Jessica. If I knew how to post the pictures I have of him, on this website, I would be doing it now. He did however manage to get 900 from me. Last Saturday, he asked for $3000. All I can to goog to be true, RUN!! This all happened for only a couple of weeks and could have been worse. Things were not adding up. First WU was sent because he needed to ship his purchases from Nigera to the state. Showed a fake itneriay of him and "Jessica" coming back to the states and then a couple of days later the request for $3K for more problems shipping his purchases. When I suggested he sell it back and cut his loses, he didn't like that idea and couldn't understand why I would not helph him. I had already found this website the day before, and was ashamed of myself for falling for who ever he is. Gave me the address of where he lived in Denver, valid address, but the people that live there are in their 80's....sick sick person. Promises of love everlasting, a good life,sincere, the use of hun, hugs,when he end his emails.....careful, now I do not trust anyone on a dating website. Oh that was another thing he liked to say "Why can't you trust me" because you are a fake nigerian scammer.

  2. Carefull ... he just tried to scam my best friend from Orlando with the Nigeria story. For weeks he promised everlasting love and then He ask for $900.00so he can come back to the states with his antiques from Nigeria...Glad to say he only received back a very sarcastic email and no money. the same story but different pictures..younger, sporty red hair. Hopefully nobody else falls for the same story.

  4. Hey guys, I decided I am going to write this scammer myself. I am going to pretend he contacted me (he is juggling too many victims to realize he didn't) and I will toy with him for a while........then I will give him a link to the site so he can see himself. I will keep you updated on what transpires lol

  5. I'm the one right now he is emailing me, but I'm going to trick him good, I would like us all see him get what he deserves...his picture to me was a red haired man and I've received over ten to twelve emails daily. He said he lives in Arizona. I'm going to get him good. I wish we all could exchange emails to discuss all our experiences, but I'm cautious now to who I give my email to. I will update you ladies daily on this page....we need to take action ASAP any suggestions are welcome.....Phoenix Lady

  7. play along with him. Let him think you will send the money when he asks for it. Just tell him it will take you some time to get it.

  9. Me too (all of the above). !!! October, 2011. lots of enticing emails - I think they were written by a woman who knows exactly what all of us want to hear!! I traced his name and address to some people in Seattle, Washington. He actually gave me an address (14821 Ashworth Ave N, Seattle, United States) - there are people by this name with a home registered to Bill Arthur!!! Perhaps he is even guilty of identity theft. He sent me his itinerary for a flight (KML airline) through the city I live in Washington but the morning he was scheduled to leave he called me desperately needing $850.00. Luckily I recognized the scam and gave him nothing. I wish there was a way to get him so he can't prey on anyone else. Sample of his handy work:
    I keep thinking about the future, about life, and what I want out of it. I keep thinking about us and what this relationship means to me. I keep thinking about these things and I realize they go hand in hand. This relationship is my future, it's what I want out of life. I want to grow old with you. I want to experience this crazy love forever and ever, and I really think I'm going to get to. I want us to walk through new houses picking the one that would be just right for us. I want to see you walk around our house in a big t-shirt with your hair down and catch me staring at how gorgeous you are.. I want you to pull the covers off me at night and then I have to get even closer, if it's possible, to you to keep warm. I want to see you laugh like crazy at me when I do stupid stuff.I want to hold you when you cry and smile with you when you smile. I want to fall asleep every night with you in my arms. I want you to fall asleep on my chest listening to the beat of my heart and know it beats for you, I want you to be the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see when I go to sleep.I want to see your morning hair, I think it will be so cute. I want to sit on the beach with you and watch the sun set, and I want all the people who pass us to envy the love that we obviously have for each other.

    I want to see you walk down that isle and I want to take your hand for the rest of my life. I want to spend all night, and maybe the next day, making love to you with an undying passion (sorry to be so blunt),I want to sit there talking to you for hours about nothing at all but in the same time everything or maybe we won't talk at all and just grin at each other realizing how lucky we are lucky to have found each other.I want you to get mad at me for doing something stupid, and I want you to bust out laughing when you try to yell at me.I want to lay with you in front of a fireplace and keep the heat going long after the fire goes out.I want to take trips with you to places we've never been and experience them together. I want us to go skinny-dipping in a hotel pool and get caught and streak back to our hotel room waking everyone up because we're laughing so hard. I want us to go and pick out the hot tub we want with the biggest grins on our faces the whole time.I want our friends to come over and get totally jealous because they don't share a love like we do.I want us to run outside in the rain and act like total kids getting completely soaked, and when we come back in stripping down to nothing as we stumble into the bedroom, or the kitchen counter, or the balcony, or the dining room table, or an office desk, or the shower, which ever one we feel like at the time..want it to take your breath away every time I say, "I love you" because you know it's coming from the heart. I want us to sit down with a box of strawberries, a bottle of chocolate syrup, and a thing of mint chocolate ice cream, well, I'll let your imagination finish that one.I want to love you and be with you for at least forever if not a little longer.

  10. Took me about 4 days to figure this company out(note I do not refer to "him") then I googled Bill Arthur. I heard the same as above, some times there was a strong dialect. other times near perfect English. Knew it had to be coming from more than one person. I did copy/paste this whole google page to the company. Gee, never heard another thing!! Gotta laugh though, it was very creative to come up with this scam. I just wish i could find the real person those photos belong too!! haha
