Allen Rogers - Nigerian Internet Dating Scam



Here is a letter sent by a reader to warn all of you of Allen Rogers, yet another Nigerian Internet Dating Scammer. Here is the letter:

I’m sorry to admit it, but I too have been a victim of the online dating scam. I met someone on Match.com who claimed to be from Manchester, England. I live in the Detroit area, but this guy, Allen Rogers, claimed to be in my area working on a project. He said he was a structural engineer and builds bridges all over the world. He was just leaving town when I responded to his email on Match back in November, 2011. We have emailed back and forth ever since. He knew the right things to say to keep me going. I’m a single mom, so it’s rare I get any adult attention and conversation beyond work. So I wanted to believe this guy was for real. Long story short, he and his 16 year old daughter left England in February to work on a project in Cape Town, South Africa. He was “awarded” a contract worth $2.5 million to do maintenance work on a bridge there. He sent me the official looking contract. He was there working about one week before he got paid, so he said he went through hundreds of thousands of his personal money paying his team and expenses while he was waiting for the check from the government. When they gave him the check for $2.5 million, he said the banks wouldn’t cash it and it was up to him to fly back to England to cash it. His “daughter” Anita got very ill and he said she now needs surgery on one of her kidneys. I was sick with worry that this little girl needed medical help and he had no money to help her. So I sent them $5,000 to fly home. He called me from the airport when the authorities began yelling and told him he was going nowhere until he paid taxes on the income he made in South Africa. I didn’t hear back from him until late that night saying he and his sick daughter were with the customs authorities insisting he pay them $25,000 in taxes. The authorities took their passports and they went back to the “guest house” where they had stayed prior to the “flight.”

I have no money, but I had a small life insurance policy for my daughter who is 7. I decided to cash it and send them money so that he could pay his taxes and fly home. I wired $30,000 and he would pay me back as soon as he got home and deposited the $2.5 million.

I spoke with him this past Friday when he was at the bank cashing the money I had wired him, and then he was going to the tax officials to pay them off. Friday evening I received an email from his daughter, Anita asking if I’d heard from her Dad as she hadn’t seen him since he left for the bank that morning and it was now 1 am Saturday morning in Cape Town. I was sick with worry that he was robbed and possibly killed. I heard from him Saturday morning say that he was robbed and all the money is gone. That’s when I realized that I was in the middle of something awful. This morning I told him I was about to lose my home (this is how stupid I’ve been). He emailed me back saying that he was able to come up with all but $9,000 to get home. I feel like I’ve participated in something dirty, something terrible. Who knows where my money has gone and if it’s hurting innocent people (sex trade, weapons, drugs, you name it). Ugh! It just sickens me.

    1. Well, don't think you are too smart. It can happen with someone you can see and touch, too. I also got scammed recently. And I also thought it can never happen to me. But it did. I sent this guy 1500 Euros to "get back to Liverpool in order to get money from his bank and fulfill the contract he had with a company in Nigeria". Fortunately, I did not send him any more. I don't tell the entire story now, it's very alike to some stories told here. Many of these guys are very, very tricky and trained. They (miss)use everything, feelings, love, the heart, compassion, even spirituality and God. He kept on writing Emails to me and tried to ring me until last week, swaring by God and his life that he isn't a scammer, will never induldge in such an evil act and won't ever get it over his heart to hurt and betray me that way. How can a person be that far gone? That is my question. Well, to me this was a lesson and maybe it was worth the money. It will not happen again. By the way,his fake identity is Adolf Edmund, located in Liverpool, phone numbers starting with 0044-70 and one with 0044-79 which are all scam numbers. Another person involved in this game was Steve Reid, "bankmanager" of a fake Clydesdale Bank in Plymouth. And Moses Elijah, which could be a correct name. This was the "company boss" Adolf Edmund had the contract with.

  2. She didn't know. I had a guy say the same thing he acted Jealous then he said he was in Kentucky. He was raising his young daughter. He told me his daughter needs money to get her out of the hospital. He got mad I wasn't answering him. I said I have a penny. He needed $1500 to help. I said nope. Later he said he was in africa and I won deaf lottery. He was asking me where I was I said on my way back from churchn. He asked me to send pictures of little girls. They turn him on. I reported him and blocked him. I reported he was a sex offender. I never felt anything for him. Ewww

  3. a year and a half ago I had a similar online relationship with this same individual, same photos, same story about the work, his daughter getting ill and being stuck in South Africa and not being able to cash his check there...... This is when I got a bad feeling in my gut that he truly was a scammer. I never did send any money, didnt have any to send.

  4. A email was sent to me saying that her name was Silvia Dosi daughter of the late Dr Ellison Dosi. And her father left her a large sum of money. And she wanted to transfer the money in my bank account.

  5. Hi I will leave my name out.. I was scammed by this same Allen and he told me we would get married once he got out of Africa the same things he told her happened. I also let him talk with my daughter. He said that we would live anywhere and he would take care of me and my family. I have no excuses. I believed him and he worked me over bad. I had no friends, my dad died, he told me he would be the new daddy. I sent all my money to help him. I owe 35000 in credit card debit that I have faithfully paid still owing a lot. He convinced me to settle on houses that me and my x owned and I settled for a fraction of their value. He said do it for the kids. I sent 50000 at that time in all he took me for 120000. In which I really did need. I know some of you are thinking that this is crazy. I was in a bad relationship for 23 years and finally divorced an abuser. I met this guy on match.com in July of 2011. I was ashamed, embarassed, and almost hung myself thru this ordeal. I lost my house and almost gave up my job that I loved. I found out on my favorite holiday Thanksgiving that I was a fool. The only reason I am still alive is my daughter who is 12 needs me and her birthday was Jan 20th. It has almost been 2 years. I am working 13 hours a day to keep afloat. I take care of my mom since dad died. She is in a bed. Allen told me he would take care of her to. I am not a thief, I do not know what the future holds. All I wanted was a loving relationship and to get out of Wyoming.

    1. My friend, my heart weeps for you. 3 years ago I got scammed by the same Allen. I lost over $100000 trying to help him, believing in him. All the things he told me, promissed me were simply not true.I was in a shock for at least 6 months, trying to call him, and beg him to help me as I was in a deep financial trouble. At first he answered my calls, promissing me my money back as soon as he will be out of South Africa, then he changed his phone number. Please listen to me, I had a comfortable but lonely life before I met this horrible scammer. Now my life is more challenging, at times difficult, but I am healthy, have my children, and have learned my life lesson the very hard way. He is a criminal, a rat running around, spreading his poison. He needs to be behind bars, where he belongs. He is a psychopath, with no human feelings, and believe me, he will never find a peace withimself. He lives on our money, but at the end, I hope he will pay the price.
      Please do not worry, focus on your life. Focus on your daughter, stay strong. I would love to talk to you more, I just do not how. Take care.

  7. I myself have just had an online scam this time with a Dean Allen. I also see his profile has now been placed on Facebook. Different pics from the ones above (but in a very siminlar vein, he had a 16 year old daughter). I was very very fortunate, it only lasted 7 days and then he asked me for money and I refused. It feels terrible to have been taken in so but I was lucky that I never parted with any money, I don't have a lot anyway. I will not be surfing on any online dating sites in the future ...

  8. Never send money to someone you do not know. Always meet new dates in public places. Bring a friend with you. Carry enough money for bus fare home. Rules of internet dating

  9. The scam has now even improved to the fact that some scammers use their old victims in America to pick up money! They will tell you that you should send the money to their uncle who will send it to them, beware its all a scam. If you wanna be safe, bring anyone you meet online to SKYPE!
