David Hoffman

Claims to be Dutch but moved to America then to Australia. Says he is a civil engineer who has his own civil engineering company. Says his wife died 3 years ago of cancer and has no kids. Website address is www.hoffmanconstructions.com

Sent another photo of himself. They looked similar but I don’t think it was the same person

Spoke to him briefly on the phone before he allegedly left for Dubai to construct an oil platform. He sounded Filipino. After 3 weeks he told me there had been an explosion and half of his workers were in hospital with burns. Another week goes by. He emails me to say he can’t afford to pay for the damage or the workers medical bills and asks me “for help as I don’t know who to turn to”. I never got as far as “how much” but the story he spun would mean 10000+.

Alarm bells had been going off for a while so I politely told him to jump off a bridge.

I didn’t find him on a dating site or social media. It was a social group in Australia for people who just want to get out of the house but not interested in hooking up, that’s what is scary about this. He got mushy very quickly but what he never got was I told him needy men are a turn off, but he did it regardless. It was repulsive.

He has been busy if late on the MeetUp app, especially focusing on singles groups

Really? I reported him to meetup but he keeps changing his name. Last one I saw was steven peeters. He was on the “young millionaires club” or something like that in Perth LOL, he must be doing ok in his line of “work”. My son who is a bit of a nerd traced his email to a woman in France. I spoke to him on the phone twice and he sounded like Kermit the frog like one of those phone operators in the Philippines. The voice didn’t sound like a tall man, more like a 16 year old boy ,… Read more »

Hi..my experience of this “man” is such that reading through these posts it is obvious he, or “they” are operating their scam far and wide. He contacted me through an International Friends Group of Meetup in Perth with his false story of being from the Netherlands, having lost his wife to cancer, and being a civil engineer, etc. All sounded very convincing and was very well written. This had developed quickly after an initial contact through Meetup, and he asked me to reply to his own email address…. david.hoffman1@outlook.com His emails were exceedingly well written and clearly he or she… Read more »

Further to my earlier post…the email address this scum is using is not as I advised. The correct one is [email protected] outlook.com
He is most convincing so beware! This man is not real!

This month he contacted me through a singles Meetup group with a very similar story. I did get him kicked out of the group but that doesn’t mean he’s not on other Meetup groups. Also saw him on Plenty of Fish site as rebelheart808. He gets around.
