Firstly thanks to God who given his grace to me so that I escaped from this scammer named David Jimmy, a handsome man from Dublin, UK who worked for Maersk Shipping Line, UK (he told me so). He did send me BP 250.000 thru Pigeon Worldwide Express Service, ask me to keep it. When he told me about the sea pirates, I already knew what's gonna be.. I curious of it. The package doesn't come yet and no call from the Courier. I check on internet and found this forum and by reading all testimony here I more thankful that God saved me. I haven't replied his email since I am curious about his reason to send the money. God bless us all!

Hello Angel, I was so much excited to read your mail and thanks so much for taking your time to write me in spite of your busy schedule. I am confident you are in good health now. Honestly, there is so much I want to tell you and so many things I want to ask you, I don't know where to start. I am new at this online dating thing so please understand if I am a little awkward at it. I am writing this message to you not for the fun of it, but because I want you to take some time for yourself and read carefully. Let me start by saying that I thank God I met you. As you may have known, the fountain of any relationship must spring up in the mind. It is very important for me to express to you how much you really mean to me. I wish I could do this in person while gazing into your eyes, but since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of letters such as this. To me, you are first of all my friend and then...... something more greater in the near future..... God willing. I believe we can achieve that, because I have faith in you and I have more and more faith in life and in the future. Those who have a friend like you fear nothing. Always bear in mind that my affection and true friendship will be yours forever. My job will be taking me to AUSTRALIA by today (Sailing for a month plus is my Hug and sweet kisses Sincerely

Hello Dearest, I am so happy to hear from you just as the sea was calm today. When you're in a long distance relationship, all you can rely on is letters, cards, emails, and telephone calls . I see my self falling greatly for you because you take the time to write me and make me feel appreciated. Thank you my sweet heart, What more can I say to you, allowing me to feel the warmth of your love across the great SEAS that separates us? You truly have no idea what I feel for you. I am trying to put this feeling into words, but I'm failing miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having both butterflies and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have only dreamed about. As the days continue to pass, my love for you will continue to grow. I never thought I had the capacity to love anybody as much as I love you right now. My love for you will continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart. It seems that you have become the fiber of my soul, the very reason for my existence. I am sitting at a spot close to the sea now , drinking a cup of coffee and listening to a music ( Find it here: ). I have no other words to describe the way you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close. I'm So Crazy About you baby. My dear please send me email I love reading your Messages. Hug and sweet kisses Sincerely

Hello Dear, I am so happy to hear from you just as the sea was calm today again. Is so nice to always wake up with your email. We have been close, yet so far apart. No matter where my life takes me, my heart is set on you. Like a blossom growing, our friendship gets stronger everyday. Each night since I saw your profile before I sleep, your sweet email messages goes through my mind. As I rest my head on my pillow a smile seeps through my soul, knowing that you, and you alone have made me whole. The difference between you and I are very few, yet they are there. But we accept those differences, embracing them because they are part of something we love about one another. It isn't about looks, nor money but the simplicity in life that we find so attractive. Knowing we could survive anywhere as long as we were together. Love is not a job, love simply is. Unconditional love is what I offer you, and with you I pray to receive the same. I want you to be my heart of hearts, my soul mate, friend, lover and partner for life. I am listening to this song By Michael Jackson (Speechless,cos that's how you make me feel. You can find it here( ) Baby, I really think that this time it is for real, I love you dearly. You make the whole room light up when you enter it, and you just know how to be my star, but you're not my star. you are my angel. There's nothing in this world that I would not do for you! Am already on a high Sea and I need your prayers for journey mercy. I love you! Yours and only yours forever!!

Frank Williams

My Queen, I just can't get you out of my mind, I really want to be close to you because a lot has been running through my head lately. I'm having trouble putting my thoughts into words so you will have to bare with me through this. I keep thinking about the future, about life, and what I want out of it. I keep thinking about us. I keep thinking about these things and I realize they go hand in hand. I want to grow old with you. 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, for you to keep warm. I want to take your breath away every time I say, "Hi" because you know it's coming from the heart. I want to love you and be with you for at least FOREVER or a little longer than forever. How is your day? Love you always.

My One and Only, I knew you were going to send me Email because it has turn a part of me to receive your lovely messages. How is your day going? Have you eaten food? Where are you going today and hope you prayed when you woke up today? Every day I look at the sky and all I do is think of how soft this your sweet lips will look like and how my first day to meet with you is going to look like. Honey I cant wait to see you and to have you. I am so sure that this relationship will not end on line because I am rich enough to fly down to your Country and pick you to UK and start a better life. I love you so so much honey that words are not enough to say. You are all in my mind and I beg you honey please don't break my heart because I have given all to you and it is your for ever. Each time I read your Emails,I loss my breath for some minutes and gain it back. I fill like holding you hands and holding you so close to my self. Making you feel like a real woman since I am 100% sure I have all it takes to make you feel like your secondary school Miss you my one and only.

Frank Williams

My Queen, How are you today? I guess you are fine? Please I need your prayers. We are now at the Le-ban Island close to India Ocean and our ship have develop a major fault and we are now...

Michael Spears is what he's going by now. He didn't scam me because I wanted to know where the Lebon island was I happened to find these same messages he was sending me. I confronted him and he said I have no idea what your talking about but then proceeded to block every type of communication between us after I confronted him which told me right there he was guilt of running a scam.

I got the message on my Facebook account and I've notice the same exact word for word that I read on this site... problem at sea and to send his valuable documents and money that are in his safety box in his cabin and he will use an officer in India to sent the money for his shipment named KONE DANIEL ANTHONY. That officer called me about his shipment, at this moment the said shipment is on the hands of that officer.

I cannot understand this is happening to me just now. Exactly the same story you have written about. His name is now Michael Scott. I'm so ashamed that I talked to this man. Now he is on Leban Island and pirates are there. He wants to send me money, 600 000. I gave him my address. What shall I do now?

OMG.. You also got this message..!!! ???

Very simple, just do not talk calls from anyone whose numbers are new to you.

Greed, sex, being lonely causes all these social illnesses.

This guy by the name Morris Campbell is the new scammer. He has been so sweet on Facebook sending me his pictures and telling me he is a widower with one daughter of 8 years old by the name Teresa. Today he started telling me he needs my prayers... pirates, ship moving slowly and he got cash $550000 and crucial documents he needs my details to send the money to me because he trusts me bla bla bla. I decided to check on this Laban island thing to see any news on ship default but I found myself on this site, I decided to open an account and share my story. Thanks so much for this site because I am now aware of this scum. God bless you!

My Dearest wife,

What ever situation I found my self I always give Glory to God.Please I need your prayers.

We are in a very serious problem here and need God intervention.The brain box of the ship is having a very serious problem and we are all confused here.The Typhoon in Japan is also affecting the ship and beside we just received information from the Signal house that there are sea pirates from Indonesia blocking the sea and they are about 312 KM away from us and the nearest place for this Ship to anchor is Laban Island somewhere in South Malaysia.
As it is now, we are no longer safe because we fear the pirates attack because the ship is very slow now. We have called for a rescue team but we are yet to get a response from our headquarters
The captains of the Ship have announced that all workers that we  should offload their goods for another means of transportation as the SHIP will duck here for another 20 days until its safe to continue sailing.Honey my problem now is,valuable documents my money ($280,000) dollar which I kept in my cabin safe box. I do not want it stolen from me in the event of any attack.My plan was to use this money to buy Metal oil in drums from Australia and supply to a company in Germany I already had contract agreement with.
Honey, as a Director of Operation in this Ship, it’s not possible for me to move along with the passenger because I have to take care of this ship until all GOODS/PRODUCT are completely discharged. Now there are so many security company stands at the sea shore and I am thinking of what to do?and at this time I need you to stand by me .. I don't know what to do now ; I want to quickly send you the money so that you can help me to secure it in your place until I have the chance to make my trip and meet you soonest.I know we have not met each other but I TRUST you and give you my whole heart so that life can move straight with us and i know you will never disappoint or halt me because we are already two in one flesh .I have learned to take life as it happens as I remember everything happens for a reason.I will discussed with one of the security company here.They will proceed delivery immediately I get a confirmation from you to assist me in receiving this money because there is no bank here and I dont want to loose this money to sea pirates because I know how I suffered for it. Honey quickly forward to me your information as follows to enable me send the money to you immediately through security company:-

Your Full Name
Your Receiving Address:
Phone number.
Valid Email.
Please get back to me as soon as possible.

From yours Melvin

I'm so worry because I give the details and hours ago I search the Laban Island then I found this forum. What should I do?

 I experienced the sameas you guys, i've been communicate with very a handsome man,  he told me that his wife passed away 3 years ago and he has a daughter 3 years old who and his aunty is taking care of his daughter. He said he fall in love with me and want to visit me very soon, the strange thing is that he said he was born in england and grew up in US But his english is really worse, he gave me his mobile number and i did called him and i did not understand at all what he said, he is accent sounds like African, i asked him to go on skype and he said he's not at home and promise to do it ehen he cameback home from Switzerland. A week after that i asked again to go on skype and he said dorry my hp has no front camera, how come a assisten manager in oil company has no laptop or hp wth front camera, that is a ridiculous thing. And yesterday he sent this message to me :
( if i say this please don't be angry i just want to make you feel that you mean alot to me because long distance relationship is something both partners should always be in touch with each other and i want you to accpet my gift to you because i gave it to the delivery company already before i left and don't worry about anything because inside the package there is a little money that will help you recover back the one you use in claiming it).
 He asked me to give my adress detail for sending the package, he asked me to send by email to
I refused to receive it, i told him that i never take any gift from somebody that i have never met. And he start angry, he said he gave already the package to the delivery company and he already spent much money. 
Then i said ok u can send it then he gave the sending booking number and asked me to send my address detail. I am afraid if he send drugs or forbidden things.

When i asked why the package is in the big box and what is inside ? He said there are many things inside, he mention red roses flower, money++. How come he put money in the package not just transfere the money. After i read stories on this site, i realize that he could be the guy that you are talking about.
Thanks for your all stories. I will be careful now.
