Scammers on WWF

I recently wrote a post about a scammer on WWF, who’s going by the name, Richard Grey. Since then I did a Google search and this character has an additional 40 alias names thus far!!! It’s a sad reminder of how close to home these heartless monsters are! Please be careful ladies!

    I would like to report a SCAMMER on the Word with Friends game and he uses the name "SMITH JACKSON", he starts by sending you messages on the itself (upper right comment section), he will tell you he is interested in you and would like to have your email address so the two of you can exchange messages and pictures, he also wants your phone number so you can text back and forth. In no time at all he will tell you that he love you and wants to spend the rest of his life with you. He claims to be in the "Gulf of Mexico" working on a platform and drilling for oil. Also, in no time at all he will start asking you for money, either because his daughter has a problem getting back to school and she needs money for books, boarding, etc., then he will ask for money due to a problem with the drilling rig itself and ask for a much larger amount, he ask me for $45,000, which I did NOT send money either time........be aware of his SCAMS. Again he goes by the name SMITH JACKSON, he may even call you on your cell phone and speaks with a thick accent.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention, @katbaz and @Fudgie. Please report 'Richard Grey' and 'Smith Jackson' by sending an email to reportabuse@zynga.com, or from within the app to avoid getting messages and invites from these types of players. Thank you.

    @Piers_Fiddler Shouldn't they report the username when they file a report? I'm pretty sure there is more than one "Richard Grey" out there and not all of them are being abusive. Also have you guys considered anything else to deter this behavior? It's getting worse, not better.

    I wrote about two scammers, Richard Grey and Williams Mayville. I did not block either of them because I wanted to follow them and warn any women who may pop up as a mutual friend to them. I was able to do that, plus warn all my fellow players as well. Eventually their names disappeared from my page and I figured they changed their profiles. Well today Richard Grey pops up as the Match Of The Day, for me! I took a screenshot and hopefully can post to help warn all the women to beware of this low life, bottom feeder, hustler

    I had the same story, same lines and he had the same job. But a different name. Can't remember the name now but I think there is a few of them out there with the same kind of story. They get quite aggressive when you don't answer right away. I'm not the only who has experienced these kind of "players". Annoying and irritating.

    alfredwilliams3030 new player as of 1/18/18 I almost fell for his scam. Wife died in car accident 8 years ago, daughter Candace, 17 brain damaged in boarding school and has a "guardian" caretaker. Professing his love in less than a month..wanting to do something special for my soon to be step daughter according to him and send $100 money gram or I tunes since he was a marine engineer stuck on a ship in South Italy for 2 months when his contract ends and then he receives the big money they owe him and can retire and marry me. RED flags galore!! Using God and my Christianity and tender heart to his advantage..quoting scripture and repeatedly saying how Good God is in blessing him with me...on and on. I just deleted my email since I used a work email I no longer use for Google Hangouts and uninstalled Words with Friends. (sadly) I will create a new profile sometime in the future. But wanted to report this guy and give a heads up warning to all the ladies out there especially ones who play late at night. Words with Friends is apparently infiltrated with "flawed English" players looking for prey. Is no where safe anymore?
