I feel it necessary to bring to your attention the overwhelming possibility that the following individual has been, and is currently, engaging in fraudulent activities and is misleading online daters in the process of doing so. He claims to reside in the UK, London, Sheffield, Southern Yorkshire area, and has stated that he has a daughter living with maternal grandparents in Africa (Nigeria), due to his fiancee dying at childbirth. He also claims to work as a bio-pharmacist in the London area.
I recently had the chance to talk with him via Yahoo messenger, and he was very open about personal details right away. In addition, he asked me for my cell phone number, and when I did not provide it, he disconnected, informing me that without a cell number, he would not communicate with me.
For having a bachelor’s degree, you’d think he could write much better.

Name: Jason Henry
Instant Messenger ID: h_jason21
This individual has been spotted on several other sites with varying information. He has stated that he is 32, but lists himself as being 35-42 in other profiles found on the internet.
I have learned that this person is currently in the process of “becoming
involved” with an American woman on Eharmony, who is currently planning a trip to London or Nigeria. I fear that her safety could be in serious jeopardy.
The following are links to his other dating profiles. A Google search first revealed him on a singles site for Muslims. Unfortunately, he deleted it when confronted about it.
#1 – No picture, but very identical descriptions.
#2 – Picture of model? Same description, cut and pasted. Claims to live in
New York with different job title. 35 years of age
#3 – Most recent, birthdate of August 31, 1968. (Claims he’s 32 on IM)
The following is the basic profile description as it appears on multiple
sites and profiles. Some details have been omitted, some changed.
Im 6ft tall and i like to meet pple and share experiences i hate lies,
betrayals etc but i like telling the truth and i love children too well im a lover of honesty,integrity,trust,truth and love i love to go out during the weekends,travel,play with pple,love to meet new friends so we can share experiences
Im 5ft 11” tall and i like to meet pple and share experiences i hate lies ,betrayals etc but i like telling the truth and i love children too well im a lover of honesty,integrity,trust,truth and love i love to go out during the weekends, chat on smilin face messenger and i,ll be h_jason21,travel,play with pple,love to meet new friends so we can share experiences
This individual demonstrates and possesses many of the disturbing characteristics described by previous victims and experts of online dating fraud. IF he is scamming vulnerable, unsuspecting women, then he needs to be found and apprehended as quickly as possible. Please forward to all appropriate agencies and organizations. I believe there is enough evidence to warrant a legitimate concern.
I was not asked to send money, or to cash money orders, but I did not communicate with him long either. Has anyone else encountered this person? If so, what was your experience? I have provided the following image, another can be found on the link to the last dating profile link, #3, above. Unfortunately, I do not know if the pictures are actually his.
