 I was victimized last summer from June to Oct 2014.  I met this person online at and he said he was from northport fl.  He began by just talking and texting but no mention of anything about money to me.  I was recently separated and he played on my vulnerability.  He sent flowers to my work, cards to my house and them more flowers to my house on my birthday.  He first started by saying he owned the company in Florida called Elite Construction and the web address he used was  His phone is 941-xxx-xxxx and his name is David M. Friesman dob 07/xx/19xx.  I found out later that his real name is David Albert and he was in India his dob was 07/xx/19xx. He is currently in England.  The original person he said he was, was a white man with a child 5 years old named Julia.  When the scam was uncovered I found out he was black and had no children and was 20 years younger.  The phone is the same but he said the rest was a scam.  The web address is still up and active with new numbers and address is a Punta Gorda Fl address now but the original address was Carolina St Northport Fl .

He sent pics of the guy whose face is on the website and played the part well.  He enlisted his mother to call me and make it sound legit.  I do not have her number anymore but I could pull up phone records to get it no problem.   My last contact with him was a year ago and his phone number is the same.  I also received a bill from Verizon wireless recently on Nov 15’, they said I opened a account and had 4 phones on it.  The Verizon company needs a police report to be able to write off the balance and remove negative information from my credit report.  They cannot tell me where this person opened up account or what state it happened in.  I do believe  that he may be stateside because this person opened the Verizon account in person and she had a id.  He enlisted the help of someone and made a fake id of me.  How they ever got someone to believe that it was me is beyond all comprehension.

He has managed to run up bills for Capital one in my name that I am now responsible for in the amount of 7500 and another account with USAA for over 7000.  This man needs to be caught and brought to justice for fraud and id theft.

Still lying

AUTHOR: YouLieLikeARug - (USA)

 If this is your image, why haven't you contacted the authorities? We have received your pictures in the mail as well, I know it's you. You are just trying to dig yourself out of the deepest hole you threw yourself in to. Give it up, you attempted to scam someone who was smart enough to check out your entire story...which is all bs!

Image ?

AUTHOR: - ()

 If that is your image then how did I get pictures in the mail of that person and his kid when he was in the army. The picture is a man about 48 who is bald and has a English accent. If that's not you then go away it's not the same name anyway so not sure why you are chiming in on this situation this person is someone that neither myself or the other persons have ever met in person. You stated that you met the person and she is bipolar neither of which is me or the other women. So not sure why your being affected by this at all his name is David m Friesman his bday is in July and he is about 51 now or so we have been lead to believe also goes by ocallaghan or chalahan he also is not in this country and all the addresses he uses are northport fl you said your in cali so not sure why you would need to be in on any of this but thanks for your concern .

It's not true

AUTHOR: mrincredible - (USA)

 I don't go by O'callaghan, it's Davis M. Friedman.... and I honestly don't know what you are talking about with your mom, there must be a mix up somewhere and there are lots of people who can go by that name and lots of identity theft happening today. Anyone could get tour picture and use it up. Please clarify your story and try not to affect the real man in the image. This man you are talking about isn't getting affected in anyway but rather I am being affected, because it's my image. I have and would never lie to anyone nor mess with her emotions. I'm sorry for your losses.

Wow so glad someone was able to verify what I was saying.  He is going to get caught and I hope at the very least he does some jail time for the fraud in which he was able to secure money.  I have all the proof so just waiting for a case to be built and I will testify, but I am sure he probally got away with it at this point.  Thanks again for authenticity.

This report is ACCURATE

AUTHOR: YouLieLikeARug - (USA)

 David friesman, David o'callaghan, David callan...these are just a few names this person has gone by. He is nothing but a romance scammer. He will try and start a romantic relationship with you then shortly after starts requesting financial help, telling his victims that he has gotten into legal/financial trouble out of the country and cannot return unless you send him a substantial amount of money. The businesses are all fake. Any address linked to it is a residential address that this person does not live in. He claimed if he was not sent $50,000 he would be imprisoned in India, which was also false. I don't believe he works alone either since he has a woman call occasionally claiming to be his mother. This David person was apparently raised in England by his mother, yet when his "mother" calls, she sounds like a New Yorker, which I find a bit odd for a man with such a strong accent. He prays on women from, our as well as senior people meet. Again, he attempted to scam my mother out of a large sum of money and when he was found out quickly got back on a dating site to lurk again. He never meets these woman because he claims to be out of the country working on construction projects in India. Please be aware, this man isn't interested in anything other than how to make a quick buck. Do not accept friend requests or private messaging from him, that is how it all starts!!

Just googled his name

AUTHOR: - ()

 Just googled the name Davis m Friedman and guess what comes up Florida address. Humm means it's another made up name because i was just emailed about him posing as David O'callaghan and he is in florida which is the same as the one who used  me for money transfers, scammer David Friesman in northport florida.  Pics are the same and the construction instead of which has been taken down it is identical to the one she reported he worked for called  The person who emailed me stated that the information was all the same and when she read my ripoff complaint it was like reading about herself.  All information matched except for the name and the website.  He does not work on a library in india for over 4 years or a pipeline in washington.  Those jobs do not exhist and he uses that as part of his ruse.  Picture on the website is the same pic that was used in the eliteconstruction website and the pics of all the jobs are the same as well as the pic of travis at the end of it as a contact.  Numbers are for the northport fl area and the location is just a different street address.  First website had carolina st as a address now its on kenvil dr.  If you google map these locations they are homes that they do not own.  Interesting: must be why he responded to my rip off report yesterday because she emailed me then and he found out and made up the story about a california man i have never met.  Just to be clear i have never met anyone in person that is involved in this scam of my credit card and banking information.  Only talked on the phone and texted, he wouldnt even skype.  Seems very off.

Totally Flase and part of his scam

AUTHOR: - ()

 I have never met this man ever in person or Skype so he is a bold face liar. It's just David Friesman trying his old stuff again and he is mad because someone contacted me about his same scam and she wrote a rip off report of her own so he is making stuff up. I am not and never have been bipolar and have all the documents showing that he had me send him money to India in Mumbai so again he is just making stuff up and he never lived in California plus just look at his spelling you can tell English is not his first language cause they have trouble with nouns. Just get over yourself and realize your bait and switch is over!!! I cannot recover any of my lost money you stole but you can be stopped in this country for sure just get a real job .

This story isn't true

AUTHOR: mrincredible - (USA)

There's always a two side to a story, I like in lakeside CA, I met this woman on match. I helped her and paid back all I owe her. How her account got messed up was as a result of the divorce she was going through. She was going to use me to get through that but I found out earlier and walked away. No one likes to be used and I refused to settle for less. I am living in lakeside, California... she tried to contact me several times but I have been advised to ignore her and stop further contact with her. Just for the record, I have 3 kids.... two are living on their own and one little one, Juliet... Diana is biopolar and has a behavior disorder, this is something I have dealt with being with her sometime..... the incomplete part of her story was that we actually met and spent months together. My name is Davis Miles Friedman

Well guess what? I am also putting a post about you and some of the nude pictures you sent me, I am sure you must have forgotten, I hope you have an Instagram and Facebook account.
You'll be surprise how the story will turn around... You are the scammer. You'll be all over the Internet and you kids can see all that. YouTube is a good channel to start, I'll just help you link it to your Facebook page... You'll be surprised by the numbers of followers and likes you'll have

btw your picture is of a DEA bust at a airport I Googled it!   What do you think I am seriously.  There are baby diapers in the bag with the money along with drugs and other illegal items off to the side of the bag totally photoshoped just like your life.  Get it together seriously David you have real problems  you need to admit you did wrong which makes me think since you are a foreigner that you do not belong in this country and maybe tied to other organizations that are illegal so watch your back your being watched. 
You really need to take some responsibility for your actions and get your life together, to do that would be make a serious effort to pay the money to the accounts directly not to me and stop scamming and get a real job overseas or  where ever you are  India working on a fake library, England fleeing India or Florida where you say you are from? Black guy or white guy, Friesman or Albert your choice just pick you actual identity and stick with it you will be happier for it and maybe just maybe you can move on and find happiness with a real family and job.
remember everything you ever emailed or sent to me have been turned over to the fbi so your choice at this point, why don't you just disappear and forget me, move on and start another scam since your so good at it.  Also have the names of the other women you did this too and some companies as well, do you want the proof or do I send it along with everything to fbi headquarters in Washington to the federal internet fraud dept.

Well if it's lies then why the money ! You think I am stupid but you committed a crime and you will pay for it whether it be in the form of garnishment or jail you pick ! Working with the cops now and they have all the account numbers you used and the Internet information as well just need to give it to the Feds. They only way that report will be taken down is if you admit to the scam , pay the accounts in full you used for your money transactions and avoid jail time.! It's real simple David you used me and never loved me admit it. You provably scammed others and I have several other women that will testify so the choice is yours otherwise I am filling out another report as we speak for the international scamming database you will be know eceryehere.
