His email is drrkbrt Claims his wife died 8 years ago and his son is in Califormia in an institution. I'VE spoken with him via skype WITH video so I know his real face. :( If you have read enough stories on this site, you have no option BUT to believe he is a scammer.

He met me on FB sending me good poems and alway called ,e "my Queen". The Federal Trade Commission Act authorizes this information collection for purposes of managing online comments.
