Type of messages sent to victims:

I will not hesitate to tell you more about me dear

My name is Robin Ford, I am an Petroleum Engineer, from this company called Chevron Corporation Limited

I have been in search of a life partner, when reviewing your photo on the dating site I decide to send you a message by email because I feel you will be the virtuous woman ... a mature woman who knows what love is about and Know when your Couple deserves your attention and love.

I was born on August 6, 1972, (DOB) I am 45 years old, I am from the city of Baltimore, Maryland, United States, dark brown hair, gray eyes, smiling face, and 5 feet 11 inches tall and 90 kg .. I I got married and lost a few years ago, Since then I am single. I have a 13-year-old son, Maxwell, but he doesn't stay with me, he's in Washington school and is attended by his aunt.

I am the only child of my late parents, I have no brothers.

I want to reveal myself because I think I want to tell you the truth and nothing but the truth to inform you about me. If telling him the truth will make him leave, leave it that way ... I want him to see all the facts now that we are about to start, to see him later ... I am a transparent person and I believe in transparency, I don't hide anything from myself for your.

I have matured to have a wonderful and wonderful family that I dream of, I have not committed to any relationship since I lost my first love, ... I don't have a girlfriend now ... but still thank God that made me The possible things by his grace.

What men need is a woman who becomes homely, loyal and respectful and the man respectfully respects and loves a god who fears his home, I really know that the internet is not a safe place to choose a wife or life partner. I'm very afraid of being here,

Regardless of what I know, God will also make it possible for me to satisfy my heart's desire, for me it has become a great burden to look for a life partner. I don't care if you have children. I will accept them because I really love children, if you can give me true love and I will correspond with true love.

Coming to you is not for selfish reason or for your beauty or whatever, but because I feel you will be the woman of virtues, one that will matter a lot to her children, family and husband, who fear and have a meek Christian mind from the heart A person who will be mine and be ready to grow old with me, a serious relationship. I love my son Maxwell very well and I know that you always care about the hospitality of mankind. I want you to take Maxwell, my son, as your own son. Be a good step for him if we ever get married and I know there is nothing impossible for God.

Distance and age will not be a barrier, today's world has become a global village

If God allows the desire of our heart, I promise you that I will worry about you with the best of my knowledge as my wife and your family, I hate divorce and I never want to experience it, a man, a woman is nice and better.

I'm sorry I wrote you a lot, my second email won't be as big as this one, you know I was trying to reveal myself to you.

I have to stop here; Please do not hesitate to answer me and ask me any questions you have to ask. I forget less because the nature of my work I am not always online or CHAT I am a busy person, please try to understand me, but I hope we will talk to the camera one day, and you will see me and I will also see you, but I will make sure of dropping the mail every day before or after my work time because I am busy at work, may the good lord guide and protect you, take good care of you and your family

My likes are: swimming, watching sites, reading novels, traveling, listening to sweet stories, football, country music, watching movies, I am a good kisser. I am a Catholic Christian

My dislike is: lies, traps, hatred, insult, lack of seriousness, scolding, talkative, disrespect. I don't smoke, I drink occasionally,

Take care of yourself while I wish you much love and care God bless you

To consider

Robin Ford

Good Morning My Lovely xxx
Honey how are you today and your family? i got your information i will send the items tomorrow Sunday
Honey i just want to ask you where do you think we can spend our honey moon if we get married?
Are we getting married to your country or should we do it in Maryland here?

Hope we will do medical check-up? Before the court marriage, just to clear your conscience about me medically?

What nature of wedding do you like? Simple wedding? or Luxury Wedding? Please i would like to know,

Honey we have to talk about our sexual life, as i don't want to hide it for you, am the type of person that love to satisfy my wife all the time on bed, I like sex and i enjoy it with my wife, Am the type that can do anything on bed to satisfy my wife sexual urge and make her reach her orgasm before i can xxx, sex is one of the things that makes marriage and relationship looks stronger,

When i say i can do anything on bed to satisfy you, i mean yes i can do anything sexually to make you feel like a woman in my arms and melt like ice cream while on bed with me as my wife, am jealous and wouldn't like you feel unsatisfied with me, although am very strong and good on bed, know it now, i don't know how you like that but i must tell you and promise you that i will surely satisfy you any time any day if we get married,
I can endure having sex for years, i don't flirt around i respect you as a woman and will adore you and make you feel like a woman in my arms
I want us to enjoy it together as husband and wife

Am really delighted to read your mail and know it well that am not coming to you for a selfish reason,

but i believe in the almighty lord he can do his own things in a very strange way, i believe your my luck and am happy i have found you,

I don't need a woman with riches i don't need a woman with Material wealth's and other things, all i need and want from a lady is Love, someone who will love me from her fundamental heart, someone who will be ready to grow old with me,

I hate divorce and would not like to experience it I know God will give you to me as my own lovely wife whom i will drive joy from, i don't care if you have kids because i also have a son but he is not living with me,

My promise to you is that i will take you and your family as mine but you have to promise and reciprocate it back to me, that you will take my son Maxwell and love him as your own son, because i love my son Maxwell,

I want you to take me as i am, although the journey might seems far to you but is close dear, the world today is a very global village, i will come there in no distance time to meet you face to face, perhaps i may come with my son Maxwell to meet you and your family,

Hope your very fine i thank you once again for finding time to reply my email,

I want to tell you that in every relationship the most important thing is being serious, both partners,

All i want from a woman is LOVE, a good woman with good heart and love,

How are you doing over there and your health today?

I will definitely give you the date i will visit you and my whats-app number on my next email, am back to my offshore work and will soon be on land again, always pray for me, i will be waiting for your next reply

I have this love story for you honey

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived:

Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others are including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their boats and left.

Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?" Richness

Answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel, "Vanity, please help me!" "I can't help you Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat." Vanity answered. Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh....Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"

Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her! Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder.

Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way.

Love realizing how much he owed the elder and asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who helped me?" "It was Time," Knowledge answered.

"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?" Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because, only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."..

We both can be able to know what we want in life.....i really cherish you a lot even though we just met from the dating site, i see you as someone matured and can hold to a very good relationship i am attracted in you and want the feelings to be mutual..

I want to come to you and prove myself to a self-attracted expression. You may ask if we have known before. But know that in life a day begins a story want to stop here for now, please accept the assurances of my highest esteem and regards, while i am waiting patiently to hear from you.

I always pray to god to make you know within you that we are going to be one soon, let the angel guide and protect you now and forever.

Take a very wonderful care of yourself as i do wish you lots of love and care.

I admire you so much and our conversation is powerful, I cherish it so much, I can't wait to open my computer in search of your mail

For you are the one who makes me whole, you've captured my heart and touches my soul for love.

For you are the one that stepped out of my dreams gave me new hope you showed me what love means.

For you alone are my reason to live for the compassion, the show and the caring that you give. You came into my life and made me complete each time I see your mail my heart skips a beat with great smile on my face...i say it again and again that i love you honey,

If am being asked how many times I miss you, honey I will say I miss you every seconds of my life, if am asked what wares would I like to change myself to,

I will say I would like to be your bra so that I will be close to your heart all the time, If you asked me after what I would like to be I chose to be your sleeping bed sheet that will cover your whole body on cold and keep you warm because we are meant to be together as husband and wife,...

One day you will be at my bosom, then you know you are the Queen of My Heart.....I pray to god to grant us the love of our heart, please wait for me on

how are you and your family today?

I really miss you so much and eager to meet you soon,

Ii attached more few pictures for you honey, always pray for me in offshore here i will soon go on land

I have been thinking about you all the night, because of loneliness, you know a matured sweet pretty lady without a man beside her is like a room with no chair, and life of a man is not complete without a woman

Please be serious am really fallen to you and must accomplish my promises to you, I want to be your proud i want to be your man, i want to be your happiness and love,

I want to be your joy and peace, I will respect you as a woman, i will love and adore you as my lovely wife if we get married, irrespective of the race.

I have made it known to you before that i hate divorce and will never want to experience such thing, don't hurt my feelings, eschew yourself from men, they may say they love you but all is a big fallacy they only want to sleep with you just for casual sex, and some are for online cyber-sex, I hate such thing,

Am serious with you that's why I want to come to your country during my vacation so that we can meet each other see face to face, please take my son as your own son...

We are matured and knows what we want in a relationship and marriage, i believe divorce is not a solution of solving a family problems & dispute between man and the woman, i believe you understand what am trying to say,

I so much believe in you and trust you, give me the due respect that i deserve as the man of the house and i will reciprocate and give you the respect as my wife and woman of the house, I admire your beauty and simplicity

I hate cheating if we married please be faithful to me and i will be faithful to you,

I will engage you if I come over there,

How i wish am there with you to hug and kiss your wet lips and whisper to your ears and tell you how much i love you

Take a very wonderful care of yourself as i do wish you lots of love and god's caring,
