out numbered never out gunned

success_babySummer 2002, shortly after an Army briefing on “land mine awareness” in Afghanistan, I realized that I should be home taking care of my new daughter. She needed me more than Uncle Sam. Apparently, there were a lot of land mines in Afghanistan. Now keep in mind this was about a year after 9/11 (before the base I was stationed at had a Chili’s and massage parlors and shit.. it was unreal).

So I got back to the states, my commander started talking about send me directly to Iraq and it was about that time I decided to get the hell out of the military. The military gave me a very good start on my life and career, but I must admit I wasn’t completely prepared for civilian life. I thought some huge company would pay me a lot of money and take care of me. The opposite was true. Murphy’s law kicked in and everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong.

I went into debt to move my family to another state, I didn’t make enough money to pay for the debt or my wife’s medical bills once she got hospitalized, and I had no vacation time as a new hire to take care of my daughter while her mother recovered from surgery. When I went to the company for some help, they told me there was nothing they could do that would not violate their policy. The company policy for taking care of employees had an “LOL clause”. It states in fine print, “the joke is on you.”

I was on my own in another state with no family, a sick wife, a new daughter and an old military buddy. I don’t blame the company for my mistakes.. my first mistake was thinking that I could rely on any organization that didn’t own me to take care of me. Success favors the prepared.. I was not prepared.

I got an application for Domino Pizza and filled it out. Before I submitted the application for my second job, it occurred to me that there must be a better way than surviving on tips from my neighbors. I started a 6 year war path to financial independence. This site is apart of that war path. baby-and-daddy*got a better job but never regained my trust of companies i don’t own. u and i have to do for you and i.

SCAM…William Craig Souders of Columbus/Portugal

Dating SCAM…Just don\’t want anyone else to be fooled or suckered into the same thing I did.

Met this guy on eHarmony, his name William Craig Souders, from Columbus OH. Moved here to the United States from Portugal 6 years ago. Had a daughter who lived in Portugal and attended Oporto British School (boarding school). Lost his daughter Mary’s mother at childbirth. His father was deceased. His mother was very ill…and of course she died during our correspondance (mid August).

He supposedly went to London to bid on an oil spill clean up and won the contract. His job (environmental engineer) was to clean up oil spill in Nigeria. But then his mother died and he left the job abruptly. He needed money to pay her doctor bills, burial, etc… Said he now had to sell his contract with The Shell Company (2.5 million dollar contract)….the story goes on and on…

Needless to say I got taken on this scam. (lots of money, digital camera, etc).

He supposedly is to be home here (US) this weekend. However, I have NOT be able to reach him by phone, email, or through Yahoo Messenger.

I am deciding how I want to proceed. Thinking of hiring a Private Investigator, contacting the police/FBI. I don’t want any other woman to experience the same thing I experienced.

phone # he used
london -44-703-1972439 (August 4, 2008)
(not sure where he was here)-080-36741686 (August 12, 2008)
nigeria -234-703-6719027 (August 15 to September 29, 2008)

Sunshine Hotel 8/9 Ebeano Estate New Have Junction Enugu State, Nigeria (sent digital camera via DHL)

Wired money via Moneygram and Western Union to…Chijioke Omenazu Nigeria, Enugu State (test question and answer…Who is it for? William C. Souders)

oh yeah….he even gave me his Columbus address…

1268 Langland Dr. Columbus, OH 43220

I went to this location and a man answered the door. And guess what? The man was named…. William Craig Souders (supposedly not the one from eHarmony though). Kind of fishy if you ask me.

Nigerian Scammer!!!

Hi, I am a resident of Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Qld Australia.
I joined match.com only a couple weeks ago. I was ovewhelmed by the response i got from the website that I cancelled my profile and subscription within one week of signing.

I got at least 5 guys that seems geniune. I started emailing and chatting to a guy named: William Sheldon
“supposedly” a 49 yr old widower,(wife died in a car accident 3 yrs ago) a civil engineer .. and owned his own company, with an 11 yr old daughter “Nikki” and had a nanny to look after her.

He didn’t have a photo on his match.com profile and he sent it to me once we were emailing from our personal website. His photo and supposedly daughter’s photo are from www.focushawaii.com that my niece have research and googled for me.

He sounds so sincere, kind and of course I fall for his good looks .. of course .. the photo was from one of the models..and then it was full on and said he was falling for me after 3 days.. then said he’s going for a business trip to London and then in Africa. He called me from London and he’s got a very strong English/cockney accent and even put his daughter on to say hello to me and that she wants to meet me back in Australia when they get back.

Then 3 days later he was in Nigeria for work.. his accent has changed ..no more very strong accent .. he said that this happens as he pick up the accent of his friends.. and here’s the crunch.. he asked me for something to make me close to him and also a playstation game for his daughter who’s mad of soccer!! And of course, stupid me .. believed him, so I spend $75.00 for the CD’s and the game and $54 for courier air express .. so that it get’s there before Valentine’s day.. as he’s so romantic and wanted something of me and promised me that he’s got a surprise present for me as well and I had to give him my address here in Surfers Paradise.

Then on friday 12/2/2010.. he asked me something so out of ordinary, he said he’s lost’s a few of his credit/etpos card and was informed by his bank in London where his “supposedly” bank account is .. that someone’s trying to steal and transfer his money out.. and becuase he is in Nigeria.. his bank has put a bar on his account that he couldn’t access it from Nigeria.. again, it was very stupid of me to believe his lies.. I told him I don’t want to do it as it’s to personal and I feel very uncomfortable to do this.. but he pleaded and keep saying please help him.. so I did.. i typed the account no, the passkey and pin number.. then this “supposedly bank” NatWest Bank of UK opened up with William Sheldon’s name and current balance was 650,000 pounds!!! I told him and said that it was ok and he was relieved.. then I closed the acc immediately and I tore the paper I wrote all the acc, passkey and pin nos straight away and into the bin..

That made me really freaky.. so I’ve told most of my very close girlfriends and my nieces/my daughter.. they all saying this is really weird and sounds very fishy.. so .. I pretended that my computer had virus and block his name on MSN so he couldn’t see me online when I’m using the computer… and I just keep the communication open thru my iPhone..

I got my friend who’s IT savvy, he checked and looked for the IP address, i kept all his emails from the very start, I havent deleted any even now.. and we found out that it’s in Nigeria and one in London. Also, my nieces and daughter’s have been searching and googling the website of Nigerian scammers that I truly believed that he’s definitely one of them… I’m still
playing him along until this friday – 19/2/2010.. so please if you are going to post this .. wait until after the 20th.. when I will stop all communications from him to block all his emails and MSN for good.. and would not take any calls from him!! I’m sure Qld Police will forward my report to the proper authorities overseas and i hope they put them in jail!!

Lucky I was only scammed for a small amount .. and woke up to my senses that I was being conned/duped by such an expert conn artist!!!

By the way, I almost forgot to mentioned that he asked me via email today – 16/2/2010, some money to pay for his daughter’s hospital fees (she was sick.. got malaria) and also a airfare ticket back to Australia..as he can’t raise any funds for this expenses!! My God .. the audacity of him to think that I’ll be such a stupid fool to fall for this scam!!! No bloody way in the world he’ll get a cent from me!!! Fat chance!!!

Please, I ask women and men out there using the internet dating to be very very careful.. I’m for one will never ever try this kind of dating again ever!!!

Thanks heaps!!!

match free trial

Although there is a lot of complaint on the Net about match.com, I would not call it a scam. The complaints are related to people canceling, or misunderstanding the terms of service and seeing additional charges on their accounts. They see “WMV*MATCH.COM” on their account. Seems the biggest issue is with matches billing services. Something they really should address.

match has a free trial period. We usually completely ignore these things. But this one deserves your time due to the shear number of complaints:

Feel Safe with uninterrupted home monitoring security systems

By: Jhoana Cooper

The world is highly uncertain. There are many security threats for human life worldwide. No country is an exception when it comes to issues related to the home security. With the advent of high technologies in electronics and computers, many new home security systems and other monitoring equipments are available. The present-day home security system is highly sophisticated and helps homeowners to secure their home and protect family members. Home security monitoring systems can be described as reliable, superior in quality and capable of offering protection for a long time. There are many home security companies offering great services for monitoring and watching the home day and night. They will give immediate warnings and provide intrusion signals.

A home equipped with home security systems is less prone to unwarranted intrusion of strangers and criminals. The homes provided with home warning alarms are mostly safe from burglaries. Basic home security system consists of sensors, surveillance cameras, alarm devices, switches and a control panel. There are wired systems as well as wireless systems. There are individual independent home monitoring systems as well as centralized home monitoring systems. Centralized home monitoring systems will be managed by a pool of experts and professionals in the field. They have lots of experiences in the field and they could inform the homeowner or the family members about the potential security threats in the home. They will be in monitoring mode all through the day and night.

There are many varieties of home security systems available with home security companies suitable for your budget and requirements. Nowadays there are many sophisticated systems available at a cheap monthly rate from the dedicated home security services. An independent home security system installed individually for the home will be cheap and you will be responsible for the monitoring of the system. When a security threat alarm comes, you have to take necessary measures to counter the threat. This will be less expensive and mostly the expense will be only at the time of installation. In case of centralized monitoring system, the professionally qualified executives monitor the system and the security threats; they will take necessary counter measures including the information passage to police, fire and rescue systems and medical emergency systems.

The monitored home security system will be a little more expensive than independent systems and you may have to pay a monthly fee for the home monitoring. It is very convenient as you do not have to worry about the monitoring and you can feel free and secure with the monitored home security systems. These systems will alert you when security alarms are triggered due to a criminal intrusion or burglary. You have to make sure that you have selected the best in the field with all necessary infrastructure facilities and professionally qualified staff to monitor the home security warning systems. Also it is necessary for the home security company to have uninterrupted power supply with a backup power for at least 12 to 15 hours.
