INFORMANT.  I just discovered this site as l try to look for this man who has scammed me.  He uses Roland Larsen from Virginia USA. There is an email with the pictures he sent me and this is the same guy I skyped with  There was a girl helping him to setup email, who is about 14-16years old. I will get the picture where she is featured too.
Here is his phone number ; 1-804-708-7960

So we had to look around and see what was going on. We don’t know about the girl except we did find one on a Facebook profile below. He only mentions a son.

From Roland Larsen:

Hello xxxxxx,

Its so nice to read from you and i must say you are a very very funny woman and i love that because laughter and smile is a great medicine and secret for beauty and happiness. You sound like a nice person and i am VERY interested in getting to know you better.I wasn’t trying to make you jealous darling lol,I was telling you what i love to do to you *;) winking.Thanks for telling me about yourself because i am keen and interested in every information that will make me know you better as am serious about having a new woman in my life that i can start a family with…I feel happy to know we both cherish family a lot because i long for a woman that can love my son and treat him right, like her own biological child.

My heart goes out to you for having gone through some challenging times with your past relationships.… i believe we all have our own ordeal to narrate when it comes to matters of the heart because we all have been hurt one way or the other but life must go on as its not wise to make our hearts turn into a stone just because someone who doesn’t deserve it,toiled with it,it will be like deciding to walk naked cos someone tore your clothes.I also believe sometimes in life,we have to pass through the wrong people for us to come across the right person.

Well I am really going to put so much effort in writing this email to you in hopes that it gives you a better understanding of who i am and what i want in life.First,I want you to know that am that type of man that believes age and distance has nothing to do where there is true love,what matters most is the chemistry.You know I’m on that website to find my lifetime lover and best friend to create a family with in harmony and understanding.

Let me tell you about myself: I was born in Denmark but my parents were moving a lot when i was growing up but we ended up here in the States. .I am into interior decoration,I import and export building materials for both individuals and companies and also take building projects.. My work takes me around the world. I have a son that i love so much,Jason is 13years old and he is a well disciplined and respectful boy,all he wants is to be loved and i don’t think thats too much to ask for right? hahahah …. I lost my wife 3years ago to cancer,its been so lonely and empty for me since then, now i need another woman that can fill the vaccum she has created in us when she left us.If you are the woman that will feed us with true love,then lets build our family together as i shall treat you like a queen so long you will respect me too.

I want you to know that am always open just like a book that you can glance through anytime but you must know that the more you read,the more you know and thats why we need constant communication to make things work out for us and so we can build something serious and intimate from this communication.I know we are all busy sometimes but we need to create little time for our communication.I am very serious about having a new woman in my life to complete my family.I don’t criticize culture or tradition,where ever my heart leads me and wherever i find happiness and love,thats where i would always be no matter what the situation is.

In a “social” setting, I am somewhat quiet and a little shy in the beginning, but I open up more and more as trust and bonds are formed. I love playing golf,and all outdoor activities, almost any sport, etc. I’m not looking for adventure or a one-night stand, my intentions are sincere and serious meant. Distance and many players in this virtual world makes it very difficult to find the perfect match for life but if you are the ONE and will feed me with your love, I will be the best lover you ever dreamed off and will treat my woman as a Queen as long she will treat me with respect too.

Well,I guess enough for my email this time,i have to go now.I have attached photos of me and my son and i hope you will also send me yours in your email. What is your working hours? How long have you been in the website? Have you met anyone online before me?

I hope to read from you soon and awaiting some pictures.


We don’t know the money ask but we know he was after money and he sent a bank account.

We found a couple of others and the frst has his name turned round in true Nigerian style, to Larsen Roland.  Inevitably we will return to Nigeria as a subject shortly, as we unlock what is a nightmare of scams. The first lad has a  few antifraud site  listings from the photo but not using the name, eg  Merlock Cherrington –

The problems really began when we searched the phone number 1-804-708-7960.  We were shocked by our findings.
Dear friends, we would like warning you again about scam attempt . During last weeks, we have been contacted by some LinkedIn users asking us about our a part job offer in a company named SHING FUNG CO., LTD. by one International Recruitment person called Mr Patrick Chan. If you enter to their webpage you will find that blatantly those delinquents copied our webpage and just changed the company name ( but the location address is same as Kaiho sangyo.
Please, extreme your precautions, it is a scam attempt. We are working already with the Justice Department of Japan and the Cyber-security Bureau of the Japanese Police.
This delinquent will try to approach you by LinkedIn profiles:
or mail
or phone +81 3-4540-2457 ; +1 804-708-7960
Please, help us with this problem and report any scam attempt.
Thank you very much for your cooperation!
We are involved because the subject arrives on our door, and so we have to get to the background of the whole scam. The post comments give us more ammunition with these phishing email addresses.

We now know that all the phishing addresses  had more or less the same  material but we don’t know for sure where they come from.  We can’t send a tracked email to Gmail and get a result  so we picked on to email with some rubbish. We got a response.  Zoho will crop up again in this post

We turn our attention to the fake website
We did compare the page code/ text and obviously the fake page is simple and items like the video are merely screenshots. As far as names given there are some changes on the page to compare and of course the listed phone numbers and Dubai address are  false.  We won’t get too technical here but we can see how the proper text has been modified, and give you an example.

24 SHEIKH ZAYED ROAD, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES is Dubai Hotel Apartments sales kiosk.

Also responsible for the domain which has no website.
We needed to check up on the domain and once again we come against a Zoho connection and a falsely registered domain using the name and address of an innocent man in the US.

The email address takes us into another realm of fraud. The message posted below is an invitation to a fake job for the purpose of money laundering. The recipient will be conned into believing it is a real company and  indulge in the forwarding of money. The money will actually come from scam victims, and we have enough scams above to feed that. In addition you will get fake cheques and pay them into your bank and forward the money to the scammer before they properly clear, and that can actually take a few months to clear properly. You will be liable to the bank and the scammer has your money.

Hello,Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co Ltd first and foremost would like to thank you for considering our offer to be the company’s sales/payment representative in your region. By assisting Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co, Ltd to communicate and also retrieval of overdue payments from our customers/clients who are located in some regions in USA/Canada.To know more about our company, kindly read through our company brochure: (Don’t bother. they steal info from the real company to scam you.)

We have clients from your region that has not met up with the normal payment schedule of 30 days. Based on research and past experience we have discovered that having a representative in the same region with our clients, it becomes very easy for them to comply and pay in due time and also help expand our product in the region. This is why we want to employ your service for swift and easy communicate with our customers and retrieval of payment.

We presently get our payment through checks and draft issued in our favor by our clients, but the problem of delay is usually experienced as we are made to wait for up to one month and more before our local banks here clear the checks/draft. We are losing a lot of money by doing this as most of our monies are procured as short term loan and overdraft from banks with high interest rate. It is as a result of the above we decided to appoint a reliable representative overseas who will now serve as medium of sales/payment collection and have direct dealing with our clients on our behalf.

1. You will only contact our customers via email, phone or sometimes visit them if instructed by us.
2. You are required to make collection of 2 – 4 payment from our different customers within a month, which do not require much of your time. So this job is regarded as part time job.
3. You will be receiving payments on behalf of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd from our customers.

We confirm in good faith that we are ready to work with you/your company and also let you know that any payment made to you on behalf of our company, you will earn 5% (for individual application) or 5% (company/corporate application) of every payment and also we will place you on a monthly salary of $2,900 USD (for individual representation) and $6,350 USD (for company/corporate representation). If you are willing and ready to assist our company without any misconduct. (MONEY LAUNDERING.)
After confirming that you received this message, we will send you our approval process that will confirm your full contact information in the right manner as to presenting the details to our board of directors and chairman/CEO for accreditation and approval.
Once again, your area of specialization is of no reference as regards to being our payment representative, and this will not take much of your time daily. Your communication with our customers will be either by email or telephone to prompt them for payment.

Waiting to hear from you.

Kind Regards,
Mrs. Chitnasu Yatsun

As a postscript to this complex matter we  need to say that these scams have nothing to do with Japan and originate from Nigeria.  There are so many twists  to this it took us several days to navigate around it all.  Thanks to the unnamed antifraud sites who gave us additional information.  They didn’t know how far this would run and we have tried to  expand  the knowledge available to protect you.
