Just want to say a huge thanks re: aibu to be concerned about this man thread. Emailed mum with a load of collected evidence about the scams going on, mostly thanks to you guys! She got in touch with the dating site to investigate and surprise surprise he is no longer a member. Although he has sent a photo which we were having a laugh over today, I might have to put it on my profile!

Well done, and what a relief for both of you.

She feels a bit silly but glad it was pointed out to her before it got too bad.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 30-Aug-11 22:06:22

So glad your mum listened to you in the end.
I'm glad she's not too upset, and if she continues internet dating will not get fooled so easily again.
