I posted an ad on Craigslist dating site. I receive a reply from a man calling him self Kevin Stephenson. He claims to be in Albany New York. He claimed he was new to internet dating and he found my ad first and wanted to marry me. We started IM on MSN. He asked alot of personal questions but I noticed everytime I asked a personal question avoid answering or would be very vague. He seemed almost infatuated with me and I felt he was very pushy. He asked if I had ever been on a dating site, which one's and such. I told him I had been on a couple. He wanted to know the first and last one I was on and made me promise not to visit the site again. He wanted to marry me and for me to be a mother to his daughter.
As the conversation went on he claimed his wife passed away from liver issues and he was left to care for there 2 year old daughter at the time. He claims both parents are deceased (he says his mothers name is Helen) and that is an only child. He states his daughters name is Rihanna. I asked if he ever talked about his late wife with his daughter and told her things about her mom. He claimed they did not talk about her and that he wanted to move forward with me as her mother. Red flags were popping up the entire time we IM each other. Remeber we had only just started tallking based on a CL ad I posted.
I am posting the conversation we had but will be removing some of my personal info. I lost my internet connect part way thru the conversation so this is only the second half. You will notice he calls himself my HUSBAND and the phone number he gave me as his work number. He calims to own Clay Co based out of Huston but owns the NY office. I felt it was like a scam and when I decided to google his phone number I came across Ripoff Reports web site. I plan on calling the phone number for the Huston Clay Co and finding out what they know about this.
This is a almost exact copy of the IM messages sent between us...
