Good day ATS friends

I have last week had an experience that I would like to share. Especially as a warning to gullible lonely people like I know of many from even my own family that might fall into the trap. I have to split the post into two, but I think its necessary so that who are interested can see how these operatives "reel you in", playing on your feelings of sympathy.

I must admit that I had a tuition since the first contact and was expecting something extraordinary to happen. The scammer is alias g.Paulrobertson.

Here below is my very short relationship that occurred via a skype contact request.

Continued, here he managed to remove all the messages from skype as I caught him out. so dont have them but you can imagine.

[2014/04/12 09:16:32 AM] Z Sulc Harties: wow sounds like got a raw deal out of life and you're lonely, have you, being honest, had many relationships? Reason I'm asking is because at our or my age, even though, im happy and content...if I had to lose my lifestyle, I dont think looking for another life partner would be on my list.
[2014/04/13 10:57:57 AM] Z Sulc Harties: Hi there, how r you today? not entirely sure what you mean. Have you accessed ATS and seen some of my comments and do you agree or disagree?
[2014/04/13 11:05:17 AM] Z Sulc Harties: wow so he is almost adult and wont require adopting soon in any case, you been with him since he was 3 year old.. so just let it go I think that you did a retty good job of raising someone that is not your own and you held by it.
[2014/04/13 11:06:30 AM] Z Sulc Harties: ghana is cool , but what grade is he now?
[2014/04/13 11:08:41 AM] Z Sulc Harties: ok i understand, so what do you think you would like to do?

[2014/04/13 11:18:10 AM] Z Sulc Harties: ok?
[2014/04/13 11:18:50 AM] Z Sulc Harties: carry on!
[2014/04/13 11:25:41 AM] Z Sulc Harties: cool so you are actually waising my time with your scam messages, do your really believe that you will catch some idiot....I think not, you are now posted as being an idiot on ATS....had you been who you claimed you would have done better....F* you!
[2014/04/13 11:28:53 AM] Z Sulc Harties: Oh and you got photo wrong as well, no one my age or older looks that good.
[2014/04/13 11:31:13 AM] Z Sulc Harties: cheers, guess u busted, but I must admit that i gave u much oppotunity, where are you my best friend, why u not responding?
[2014/04/13 11:32:21 AM] Z Sulc Harties: Hello Hello, damn now im so lonely. Why you take unshare your contact
[2014/04/13 04:25:10 PM] Z Sulc Harties: f*** you too

His name is very similar to:
His name is Robert Paulson! Fight Club

I find scammers always use tags from movies and such. . .

Unfortunately they will find someone that will fall for whatever scam they are trying to perpetrate.

No offense or anything but I'm sure most people on ATS are for lack of a better word paranoid and wouldn't fall for this but good job warning the 1% that aren't.

I have had skype friend invites similar to this spanning over the past 4 or so years. They always claim to be american military of high rank, stationed overseas.

I guess I'm a bit jaded having been online for a long time, so the first time it happened I googled the name, as I thought their english was no where near good enough for an actual american. I'd suggest anyone who gets a similar friend invite out of the blue do the same.

That particular name, with the photo the person on skype was using, was easily found in search. The actual person of that name and likeness turned out to be a retired general, who had nothing whatsoever to do with the one trying to dupe me on skype.
