Briefly explain what happened during the scam. : Met on Happn dating app, which said we crossed paths in Portland, Oregon. He would never meet or call. We only talked via text and Google hangouts. He ramped up the love talk pretty slowly, compared to other scammers I've dealt with. We talked for a little over four months. I questioned his intentions several times, but he recovered very well and I believed him.
He claimed to be a structural engineer from Estonia, widowed and with a son named Brian. He claimed to have family connections in Topeka, Kansas and New Haven, Connecticut. He claimed to have health problems damaging his career.
A few days ago he told me his project in Kansas is finishing up and he'll be coming to Portland to start a life here, hopefully with me, he said.
I googled his name a few times but honestly didn't look that hard, until I googled his email address and it came up as part of a romance scam. I thought his photos had been stolen at first, so asked him if he knew. He then quickly turned the conversation to money, and how he needed me to receive his paycheck. When I said no, he became angry.
Did you send any money to the scammer? If so, how much?: No
