Ladies, Beware Scammer Fredrick Owen

We recently had a scammer who by trying some new tricks managed to contact some of our ladies. Normally we catch all these scammers before they contact anyone and remove their profiles, but this very sophisticated person managed to fool us for several days. Obviously, we have removed the profile from the site. If you have been contacted by this scammer, you should cease all communication with him because he is certainly up to no good. If you think he really loves you, don’t be fooled: this scammer has written to many other members of our site also, and is not being honest with any of you. This scammer is going by the name Fredrick Owen and has used (probably among others) these email addresses:,,,

Here are some examples messages we have seen from this scammer:

Introductory Message:

Good evening my dear am Fredrick Owen from United States of America 42yrs old single and am interested in you.

am new on this site and am searching for a serious woman and am willing to come and visit her so we will get to know each other.

am a busy man do i dont have time to chat but we can be exchanging mails if u want so if u are interested in me please reply me on my email

Another Introductory Message:

Good morning my dear am Fredrick Owen from United States of America 42yrs old single and am interested in you.

am new on this site and am searching for a serious woman and am willing to come and visit her so we will get to know each other.

am a business man and am always busy with my business.

so if u are interested in me too please kindly reply me on my email


Then here is another message he sent to one of our members after they had exchanged emails:

How are you doing today? I feel so glad we are exchanging messages, I hope this friendship will develop into a better next level,am Fredrick Owen, from United States Of America(California) 42yrs of age single and am Successful business man and i deal on motor spare parts.

Green is my best colour and my favorite food is fried rice and 6.2 height and 85kg weight.

I like the indoor board games like chess and scrabble.

i have a friend he met a girl online and they were exchanging mails and the girl told her friend about my friend and her friend asked for my friend’s email address and she gave her then she started writing my friend and even lied that her friend is chatting another man.

then my friend left her friend and then marries her.

i was in Bangkok last month for their marriage but now they are here in US.

even my friend later find out that it was a lie but already he has developed feelings for the girl becos she was the first person he met in person and he had alot of fun with her when he traveled to Bangkok on January to meet her.

I enjoy warm conversation and am kind of fun loving person to be with when you get to know more about me.

Thing I love doing are: going out for shopping, Sport, music,Traveling, Walking by the beach part and talking to my love one either by cell phone or reading email from each other.

Am happy i met you on Christian Filipina and i have read the testimonies on the site and i hope we will testify our own in time to come.

friends are not to be trusted now but what happened to my friend maybe the woman he is married to is his destiny.

am looking forward to hear from you again my dear.

i will try to make sure that i replies ur mail always.

i will be checking my mail every morning before i go to my office and every night before i sleep.

Fredrick Owen

Sounds quite believeable. In fact, when we first read it we thought it was not a scammer. But this is a scammer, a sophisticated one who sometimes claims to be from Alabama, sometimes from El Cerrito, California, and probably is actually in Nigeria.

This scammer will certainly later try to ask any and all people he meets to send him money, or to send money to a third person for a “package” or you never know how he will try to get people to send money over to himself or someone working with him.

Here is one example message he sent to one of our members:

Honey i bought a gift for you today and i want to send it to you.

its a surprise honey and i want also to tell you that i will be going to Bolivia soon and i will come and meet u from there

please give me the address to send it honey.





Mobile number:

Email address:

i love u so much honey

Don’t believe it.

Never send money to someone you haven’t met in person.

And never share your personal contact information until you have spent many weeks getting to know someone through our site. Only after you have chatted with webcam and exchanged many messages should you consider ever giving out your personal contact details.

For more information, read about our blog about how women can get scammed on dating websites.

Also here are some additional messages this scammer sent to our members:

My dear i strongly believe that u have all the qualities that am looking for in a woman.

i want to come to ur country and meet u and ur family so that i will know them ,they will know me too.

i want us to build a serious relationship my dear that will lead us to marriage.

lets keep in touch and see where this will lead us to.

my dear i want to come and meet u in ur country when am free from my work so that we will get to know each other and u will see how serious i am to you.

so please if u are not serious please tell me.

am not getting younger again thats why i need a serious woman that i will marry and i hope that is you thats i have been looking for.

my dear i want a serious relationship with u and you know when i saw ur profile my mind tells me that u are the woman am looking for thats why i send u a message

i love u becos i know u are a good woman and i hope u wont change.

i want to meet u so i can prove to u how much i love u

my dear i promise to always lend you my shoulder
For when you need to cry
I promise to always hold you
When you need someone
I promise to always care for you
Wherever you are I promise to always be there
I promise to never hurt you and never break your heart
I can’t promise you the world
I can’t promise you the sky
I can’t promise you that we will never fight
I can’t promise you that I will never cry
But I can promise you that I will always be true to you
And baby I promise that I will always love you more than anything with all my heart, no matter what happens or what we go through, baby I’ll love you until the end of time!
Ill be your guardian angel
That’s my promise to you!!
pleasegive me a chance to love u

Honey what is Love…?
When one heart joins to another heart then love has complete.
honey we are meant to be together and i will always love u

Dear Almighty Lord,

Please bless us with better days!

Please let all misfortunes end!

Please take all my problems off us and let them all leave us and our LIFE forever!


Please help us to pay all our bills due,Send a miracle so that we can build this relationship in the fear of u God

Please take all the bad luck away so that it leaves us and my LIFE for good so that all our adversaries will have NO MORE power to harm to us.

Please bless us with greater freedom so that we will be happier and will be able to plan and fulfill all my great projects for our future!



Honey don’t ever give up when u r down,

it doesn’t matter if u fall many times,

just remember that each time u fall,

i’ll never let u reach the ground,

trust me, i will always be around.

i will not hurt u honey but always be there to make u happy always..

i love u so much honey

Honey i love you for being my sweetheart, I love you for being my partner and my friend.

I love you for the caring and joy that you share without end.

i will always love u honey

Honey i would be lost without you. I so much appreciate the way you bestow your love and care to me. I know deep within my heart, you are here to stay. We will stay happy together and grow much deeper in love together, trusting each other.

I love you.

Honey if love can be avoided simply by closing our eyes, I wouldn’t blink at all for I don’t want to let a second pass having fallen out of love with you.

honey am deeply inlove with u

Honey i bought a gift for you today and i want to send it to you.

its a surprise honey and i want also to tell you that i will be going to Bolivia soon and i will come and meet u from there

Thanks lot for your advice.

    Comment by Anonymous — July 13, 2012 @ 1:00 am

  2. he also email me. he was smart because he wanted to exchange emails rather than sending mail here in CF. he asked me if i am serious he said because he is really looking for a wife. I told him I dont trust him yet. then he said its up to me. I said ok, thank you. he never email me again

    Comment by kate — July 13, 2012 @ 1:06 am

  3. me also. What i should do

    Comment by pam — July 13, 2012 @ 1:20 am

  4. Yes its true he was writing on me same contents as you posted here. But i requested him to chat online with cam after that he never reply maybe he noticed that I’m not he one his looking for to be scammed.

    Comment by nenajay — July 13, 2012 @ 1:25 am

  5. Hi Pam, Don’t worry, this looks like the kind of scam where the man pretends to send you a package, then tells you to send some money to a customs agent (his friend) who steals the money. There was never a package. So don’t write to this person any more. The person might send you a message saying that a package is on the way, or come up with some other story. Just ignore it. You’ll be fine.

    Comment by Christian Filipina — July 13, 2012 @ 1:28 am

  6. Am aslo aware about this scammer, if someone send u message then he will not chat u cam to cam surely he is a scammer. They are the member of Nigerian syndicate pretending to be a handsome men but actually they are using pics from a model in different country, So beware girls.

    Comment by fheng — July 13, 2012 @ 4:23 am

  11. Helo..thanks for the very good and awaring information..actually i was also scammed..this is a very similar messages that i have received from this particular know he sent me many pictures of the content of package the he has to sent. the pictures are 3 laptops 3 cameras 3 sets of jewelry, 3 sets of flowers and 3 sets of iphones…what an exciting feeling if that would come true.but i pray to God that He will give me knowledge and wisdom. my prayer is this: Lord if this man will ask money from me for the freight and handling for the package then i will understand that this man is a scammer.and it was come true, the man ask me 10 thousand pesos to pay for the package that will arrive in airport of Manila. i said there he goes. so i stop communicating him, but there is a man call me by phone coz i gave him my number, informing me that the package arrives, i tell the man i am not interested with that package.. you can take that, all are yours.. so i praise the Lord that He intervene the work of the devil.

  15. i received all the same mails from fredrick owen and it was too late for the warning as i have sent him my information. but still thank you for the late alert at least if someone calls regarding the sent package from him i would just tell him “send it back to the scammer guy”. may god bless him for what he is doing. thank you CF for the warning.

    Comment by basi — July 13, 2012 @ 10:34 am

  16. OMG, he sent a message to me too, same contents as you posted CF staff, but he sent it into my yahoo mail. No wonder, he is scammer because i sent a questions message to him, but his answer is not compatible. Thank you CF staff for the reminder

    Comment by Leng — July 13, 2012 @ 12:51 pm

  17. Praise God! Thank you for the information. Actually I just answered his e-mail right now. And when I browse down my e-mail there’s an alert from CF that this person is a scammer. Though I asked God for His guidance to expose if this person is really real.

    God bless to Christian Filipina. Thank you for protecting us. Job well done. Take care and God bless….

    Comment by jaci — July 13, 2012 @ 2:19 pm

  18. Oh God, thank you so much CF, my prayer was heard. Iactually we are already exchanging emails and I already thanked God for this man because honestly I’m new on this site, but God is really amzing that He heard my pray when I told Him that if this man is not true, just do something. and you too for detecting him. Most mails you have posted was sent on my yahoo.
    Thank you so much & more power CF. Great job done!

    Comment by Angel — July 13, 2012 @ 4:02 pm

  19. Will I do believed, a lot of scammers around any dating website, this kind of person don’t care even you are a christian or what, their motives is to fool and cheat…
    Only us who are members mus t be aware and alert, the scammers knows the weakness of a girl and deliver nice, sweet and good words which some admires…but we must aware when somebody say “I WILL SEND YOU A GIFT” …believed me it is scammers….same here I received message from this person FREDERICK OWEN…when he send me message bout gift…I instantly reply him and tell him now I know who you are….

    Thanks CF that you try to protects your members here specially we woman….God bless you and more power.

    Comment by Ma. Ruth — July 13, 2012 @ 5:59 pm

  20. Actually I never give my phone number to any one I meet in the Net. I never give my real address and I never believe that there pictures posted here is real unless I see him and not only once and I let them stand and let them move to be sure that the picture you are viewing is real.

    Comment by nenajay — July 13, 2012 @ 7:05 pm

  21. Truely, He’s a scammer. We exchanged mails inspite the bad vibrations I felt when I was writing messages through his email (although I tried just to be nice answering his mails basing from his sugar coated phrases). My suspicion was confirmed when I told him I would like us to contiunue our conversation at the CF site and found out that he’s already on free-level membership just like me. I reminded him that his upgraded membership I guess has expired but he insisted “twas upgraded a long time” Huh! I didn’t answer his mail anymore and timely received your warning. a verdict to my confirmed suspicion. Thanks a lot and God bless all. Lady

    Comment by Lady Private — July 13, 2012 @ 7:51 pm

    Comment by josie — July 14, 2012 @ 6:05 am

  27. Wow, i think hes really a professional Scammer, but thank CF staff for the warning!!! And to all the lady’s & woman like me, we must aware of some man who’s sweet talk, specially when the man offer you some thing and going to send it to you! Most of them are a big scammer. Thanks CF

    Comment by Julieta Dacillo — July 14, 2012 @ 10:15 pm

  28. He sent me winks and notes in the site asking my email ad..When i read his profile I laugh a little..I already had doubts about him because the age preference that he is looking is up to 75 YO when he is only 42 YO..I never expected him to send me mail to my private mailbox because my age preference is 45 YO up..To my surprised I got mail from him and it’s the same context as what have published here..Since we filipinas are respectful and kind I still give him the benefits of the doubt..I answered every mail that I got from Him but I am extra vigilant as I continue our acquaintances…
    I become more suspicious for him for the following reasons:
    1. He never asked me questions and he never answer my questions specifically..
    2. He don’t mention my name when he send me mails, he call me honey,my dear,love etc.. which give me a hint that he was sending the same mails to many ladies in the site..
    3. When he wrote his third letter the more I was alarmed because the wording in his letter is like a poem or lyric in a song…

    In his last letter to me he wrote ” honey i will come soon” which I never replied already because I received a scammer alert from CF..

    Thank you CF for your special concern to us in your dating site..

    To all ladies who are seriously looking for lifetime partner here please be more watchful..I know meeting a stranger is very risky,please don’t be easily deceived with some men who has sweet tongue who promised you material things and good life..Let God always be our guide!!!

    Comment by Eve — July 15, 2012 @ 12:10 am

  29. thanks for the informations you sent to me. i’ll be aware now of this scammer. God bless you.

    Comment by jho — July 15, 2012 @ 9:55 pm

  30. Hello Ms. Ivy,
    I am glad that you warn me about this guy called Frederick Owens, honestly the way he sent me an e-mail reveals his questionable integrity, like he is not answering you direct to the point and just keep on saying I miss you and I love you, I wonder how you say those words if you haven’t develop deeper relationship to a person, for me it is fake because loving someone it takes time to build friendship later relationship, I got many e-mails from him, and correspond some but I stopped when I got a warning e-mail to me. God will dealt with what he has done to the sincere people on this site looking for their better half. Again thank you for your concern and I appreciate your intervention.

    Keep up Christian Filipina more power to you


    Comment by Happy_Comfy07 — July 15, 2012 @ 10:44 pm

  32. Thank ever Ivy for being alert of the “scammers” in your site.I am glad you have an immediate action of this matters.Thank you and I am wishing all the best that your site could offer.GOD bless you and company exceedingly !

    Comment by Mildred — July 17, 2012 @ 8:24 pm

  33. Hi,Ma’am Ivy!Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!God is so good.I am so glad to received your letter last july13 to inform and aware about the scammer Fredrick Owen,thank you very much to protect your members.Thanks to God when I replied his first letter at it says failure noticed.That’s why I sent his address to yours Christian Filipina.
    I read all the comments here and that’s very true and I’ve encountered this different kind of person before.They came from christian dating site.chatting without webcam,saying beautiful words to deceive me and then asking money,but I did not allowed their evil doings.It says in the bible 1 Timothy6’10 for the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.If a woman and man is sincere in searching their life time partner they are not asking money to their chat mate.
    Thank you very much CHRISTIAN FILIPINA to protect us!MORE POWER TO YOUR DATING SITE.

    Comment by Aub1937 — July 18, 2012 @ 2:50 am

  34. I also had Fredrick’s mail but i ignored it as his surname was quite familiar to me with a certain Alex Owen i met at TAGGED 2 years ago.We exchanged mails before that almost led to a serious relationship only to find that behind those sweet flowery words he started to scammed me by sending parcel with jewelries,bouquet of flowers,and 1 million plus cash through southeast Asia digital cargo express. I almost believe at first when i opened the route of shipment of the said cargo from London to Dubai and then to Malaysia..the problem aroused when the cargo reached Malaysia as it was being on hold by the customs due to its contents. They wanted me to send money to redeem the parcel so it could be delivered immediately to me door to door…I refused as i do not have money,owen contacted me also to send money as he was at the Venezuela mining at that time and busy working,they both kept on convincing me{Owen and the Cargo Digital express}until i realized it was a scam. I told Owen to get the parcel back as i am not interested anymore..I believe Fredrick and Alex are the same…

    Comment by jasmine — July 22, 2012 @ 5:40 am

  35. Hi Jasmine, Thank you for adding that detail. It sounds like Alex Owen probably is the same person (or maybe there is no person with these names: it could be simply fake names that are being used in some Malaysian Western Union office).

    Comment by Christian Filipina — July 22, 2012 @ 11:08 am

  36. Thank You so much for sending me the E-mail warning regarding Fredrick which I’ve got a couple of weeks back. He seems so true but very much false. Well, if he’s not going to change, pity him, pity them (syndicate). The wrath of God is creeping on them sooner than they could imagine. Such a pity. Thank God your Christian dating site knows to track a Scammer. Thank You! And to all the other Pinay’s out there, we have to be patient in dealing with every male that comes our way. We deserve to have the best, don’t ever settle for anything else. God bless Christian Filipina!

    Comment by Maria — July 26, 2012 @ 1:18 am

  37. Guys beware of that person, who using the words of God in dating site,! when he sent you an e mail about bible vers,they used it to catch your feelings, he will empress you because he is man of God ,it [may be] a scam

  39. Thank You CF for this post because this is a “Big Help” not only for us (readers;members or not) but most of all to Frederick Owen & others like him as well. And If I (& the others as well) may add on the 38 comments.”Please Pray for Frederick Owen & others like him.”
    Because it’s a given fact that in any given situation/circumstances, those who are doing the wrong thing are the ones that should be understood & be included in prayers.
    Once more Thank You Christian-Filipina. More Power & God Bless Your Site As Always.

  40. this just amazes me as I have had false women use similar words ans tactics to try to scam me.
    I thank the Lord that His Spirit gave me wisdom to ignore these kind of ppl.
    and yes the strength to stop replying to these scamming ppl.
    both male and Female?
    how could a man ask money of a woman?
    never! a man of Honor will make his own way.
    a child of God will ask God for help, but never ask a Lady.
