The picture below and above top
the one that he has used on a dating site called:
SeniorDateNetwork.com. Note on his profile, he says he is
Hispanic. He told me he was born to a Russian mother and an American
father. In retrospect, an American engineer in Moscow in 1946? He has an
extremely thick foreign accent making him hard to understand
especially since he speaks very softly. Click link above to go to his profile, but in
case he removes it, here is a copy of his introduction and his
note above, under his Details on the right, it states the site was
last visited on March 26, 2012. Ironically, that was a day
that we had no texting contact following contact the day before and
the day after that. I have transcribed, with a few exceptions,
every word of our texting and yahoo messaging for the almost one
year that we were in contact. I have copied below our texting
from March 20, 2012 through April 1, 2012. At that particular
time, he was claiming that he could not email with me because he had
to do all of his computer access at an internet cafe in Kiev,
Ukraine. Therefore, he was also not able to yahoo message.
The conversations copied below pertain to the final loan he
requested of me.

promised u that I will do that. What else do u

Mark Morgan first contacted me in March of 2011 by sending me a
message on my Facebook account, showing interest in me after seeing
my picture "by accident". At first I told him that I didn't
have time. But, in late May, I sent him a Facebook message
asking for him to tell me something about himself. From that
point on, we sent emails, we corresponded in Yahoo messaging, but
mostly, we texted on our cell phones. Throughout this time, he
phoned me approximately ten times, but we didn't talk much on the
phone because he had such a thick accent and I had difficulty
understanding him. Although he allegedly had two cell phone
numbers, calls to him would never go through. The calls from
him say "Blocked".
Mark Morgan claimed to have been born in
Moscow to a Russian mother and an American father and that his
birthdate is July 22, 1946, making him age 65 in July 2011. He
claimed he moved away from Russian as a young man going to
"university" in Ireland where he met his wife. He claimed he
moved to the United States about five years prior to 2011 following
his wife's death in order to meet his father before the father's
death. He claims he has a grown daughter in Ireland who is
married with one son. He claimed to be a contractor for the
building of roads and bridges and that most of his work is done in
Eastern Europe. He claimed he had just signed a contract to
build or repair a road or highway in the Ukraine and he claimed to
have left his home in Los Angeles, near the end of June 2011.
He claimed his address in Los Angeles was 1736 Glendon Ave., Los
Angeles, CA. That address does exist - it is in the Westwood
neighborhood, north of San Monica. According to internet
information, it is a multi-unit townhouse, and three of the units
are valued at $994,882, $882,300, and $528,672. He claimed he
had leased the townhome and prepaid rent on it for a year.
There is no way that Mark Morgan lived at that address.
(October 2012 - he is still using that address)
The largest factor in my belief in this man
was a "bank" website to which he gave me the user name and passcode
where he supposedly had an account which had approximately
$700,000.00, at the New Alliance Bank -
website had disappeared when I tried to access it a day or two after
he was supposed to be flying to the U.S. to meet me in person -
Monday, April 2, 2012. It looked completely legitimate, even
having login pages for user name and password, then another layer
which lead to his bank account showing expenditures and deposits
made in the early spring of 2011. I'm computer savy, but it
was unconceivable that he or his confederates could create a website
that looked just like a bank's website that didn't seem to have any
hidden offsite pages.
On August 16, 2011, here's what he explained about the bank account:
8/16/11 - this is the Yahoo Message between us:
did you want to show me?
markm4144: I want to show u my account that I have
deactivated and u will see that I am not that man u
think that I am….
dianebrogden: do you also plan to show me the contract
you entered into for this job you are doing ???
markm4144: yes I will show u that tomorrow alright?
markm4144: click on this
dianebrogden: you have my email address. you can send to
there. My body wants to shut down. It's been this way
ever since you popped that news. just the opposite of
what I was going through... now I just want to go to bed
markm4144: have u?
dianebrogden: it's open
markm4144: why not let us get this over with because I
have not been myself ever since
markm4144: Place your mouse arrow at the operations tab
and a box will drop for you to click on account login
DELETED THE USER NAME AND PASSWORD
I'm there. what am I seeing?
markm4144: what do u see there?re?
markm4144: does it show u my account or not, these I
have saved for us and I was supposed to use this to
complete this project but I lost my card and some
information and someone tried to rip me off but my bank
contacted me and I asked them to deactivate it till I
can come and prove that its mine
dianebrogden: I see 2 columns - 3 actually. 2 on right
with figures. 1 on left with descriptions
markm4144: so do I look like the man that will run away
with such money?ey?
markm4144: do u believe me now or not?
My last text from him was
on April 1, 2012, but it wasn't anything except a lie trying to say
he had been trying to text me. I texted him the rest of Sunday
asking for his flight information and when Monday came - the day he
was to fly out - as the day dragged on, I finally began to admit that I had been duped,
scammed, robbed, all of this by a man calling himself a Christian, an
honorable man, and saying over and over that his word was good.
3/31/12 2:31 am
MARK: Hello love, how are u doing my love…
MARK: I will be flying out on Monday so relax,
alright, be happy…. Whoopie!!!!
The fares were so high on Saturday or Sunday, I was
pretty sure u would wait. How do u feel?
MARK: So relax alright?ht?

Hello love, are u getting my messaging.
year of communication, with vows of love, words of honor, promises
made, one problem after another happened on his job - he needed
money from me of course. The first loan was in August 2011 when he
told me he had to pay the government a tax or a fine on his job that
he didn't previously know about and they had shut down his job site. On September 12, 2011, he claimed to
have a nervous breakdown which put him in an Ukraine hospital for
two or so weeks; then he recuperated in his rented apartment for
close to a month, going back to the hospital for injections (that he
didn't know what they were... they just made him feel better).
Then he finished the job, and on the day before he was to leave
Kiev, he got word that his mother DIED in Moscow. So he flew
from Kiev to Moscow where it took him close to 2-1/2 to 3 weeks to
bury her. Immediately, just before or following her burial, he received a message that the "check
bounced"; he was speaking of his payment for the road work he did in
the Ukraine which was supposed to bring him $600,000.00. With
that news, around November 17th, he claimed he collapsed and was
taken to a hospital in Moscow where he spent four weeks, out of
communication with me until December 14th. He then claimed he
flew back to Kiev, Ukraine, to hire an attorney to sue the people
who had cheated him out of his payment. But he couldn't hire
the attorney unless I sent him another loan to pay the attorney.
("didn't I want him to finish there and come home?") When he got back to
Kiev, he claimed he was constantly being followed, and once, that he had been mugged
but the police showed up in time to stop the mugging and he was only
I have made this webpage for only
two reasons - one to purge myself of my anger, my disappointment and
hurt and yes, mortification, and secondly, to warn any other woman
in the world who meets with this guy and is swayed by his sweet
words and promises, that HE IS NOT REAL. I doubt that these
photos are his. He played me for every dime he could
get out of me. He is a master at his game. In transcribing our months of texting and yahoo
messaging, I have 254 pages of a Word document, waiting until the
day that the law finally catches him.
