Is Steven A Injayan a "Romance Scammer" ?
He is in Sarawak doing pipeline construction with his own company but seems to have emergency financial problems ..
Hi,Yes, he's a scammer and I've looked into him and his so-called company 3 weeks or so ago. Then he was courting a 70 year old Canadian customerhe'd met on Match.com and had just begun to ask her for money. Seems like he's still making the rounds.The phone number of his so-called businenss traces to a land line in St. Peters, Missouri. No name, address, or business number matches that phone number on a reverse number search. So it is certainly not his business number or it wouldn't be unlisted. A name search tells me that there are only 2 Steven Injayan in the entire United States. Both are in Calforinia and married. But no matter who, what and where a scammer says he is, all of that and his photographs too, can all be faked, and in fact, always are. These guys look to disappear without a trace as soon as you catch on and are skilled at avoiding detection by law enforcement. So to figure out what they are really up to, you can't believe what they say. YOu have to look at what they are doing, because all of these scammers pull suprisingly similar stuff, and legitimate people don't. Here are those typical signs of a scam:- the scammer reaches out to you on a dating or social networking website and he falls in love with you at first sight.- He moves in on you and sweeps you off your feet, rushing the relationship towards some kind of a commitment. He pulls you off the site where you met and tells you that he wants an exclusive relationship with you via webcam, skype, Yahoo messenger, etc. He talks of love, marriage, future and forever- He is in another country, not his own, usually though not always in Ghana, Nigeria or Malaysia for work as an engineer, an architect or a construction or mining supervisor, but he desperately wants to meet you as soon as his contract is up. - And as soon as he knows that he's got you on the hook, he starts asking for money. He has an accident at work or problem with his credit card, a theft at his hotel, or he's mugged on the street and wants you to get him out of his jam or he has work or legal expenses he must clear before he can see you. And he will want you to wire the money to him via Western Union and will say that he will pay back when he shows up at our door. But he never will get an inch closer to that plane. He will just have one emergency after another until you've depleted your savings account. Then he'll move on. You can just Google "Romance Scams" and see an countless people reporting how they got caught by romance scammers who stole their money.. Here is one of many sites devoted to warning about and exposing scams. Despite all of his words of undying love, the only thing really keeping him around is the thought that he will get your money. If this is soundiing familiar, cease all correspondence with him before you get hurt and report the fraud to your local police and to the RCMP and if/when you are still in touch with him when he asks for it, do not mail him any money!

This man is indeed a scammer. I was a victim
Hi,Sorry for the delay. I was out getting my hair cut. I'm also sorry about the scam. That's what it looked to me at the time, and I hope you at least reported him to the authorities. The more people who do, the better the chance that these scammers get caught.If you are still meeting men on line though, be careful. Scammers generally come back pretending to be someone else to get a second bite of the apple. So just keep in mind that the minute one of these guys on the web needs your money, he's a fake so you don't get hurt.
