I got a call later from Mr Davis, still in a noisy room after claiming he'd be going outside to call me, saying that his wife was wanting to turn in the phone and take action.At that point, I had calmed down knowing I really wasn't in any trouble after finding out about the scam, I could tell that Mr Davis was just fishing for me to try and offer to pay him off or something without saying it just repeating the same thing over and over.I get a text message from her within 24 hours saying "Hey its Katie!From Craigslist." As soon as we started talking she asks me to send her a contact picture.In the spur of the moment I asked to see it, to which she sent a picture and asked for one in return.
A number of men have also been told to wire money to women of different names in South Carolina.
During the last 2 months this criminal also deletes the fake daughter profile very soon after he makes contact with his next victim I was on the app Plenty of Fish (POF) and "matched" and sent a message to a girl with the username "starfish3824".
I received a response about an hour later stating that she did not get on the app very much but that if I gave her my number she would text me. I receive a text about 2 hours after I sent my number with a picture of a girl holding a dog saying that her name is Jess.
She replies with "friends maybe more" and I replied, sure we can be friends! She says she is and has acquired a girlfriend (age 19) during the 2 months shes been in Fresno.
We started talking and she confesses to me that she is actually 17 and almost 18 in 2-3 weeks. After her and I got to know each other (she's visiting Fresno due to a death in the family, hobbies include: the outdoors, watching Netflix, studying for cosmetology), we strike up the topic of meeting up to hang out. She asks if she can bring her girlfriend so that she can feel safer. I asked her if she wanted to move up our meet-up date sooner, and asked which general area she was living in so I can find a meet-up location that was between us.
In the end, because of the noisy room, all I heard him say was something about not wanting to waste my time and hung up.
