A man claiming to be Alberto R James is on TikTok using these photos to catfish.

How do we send pictures to you? You guys should have a photo gallery of Dr. Guilherme Scheibel because his photos have been used by scammers plenty of times. Women on Facebook have come forward and it turns out I’m not alone. I’m not the only one who has been deceived. Dr. Guilherme Scheibel is a Brazilian doctor specializing in rhinoplasty. He seems to be popular in Brazil.

But your sister is not actually talking to the real Dr. Fernando. It’s all fake.


This person is impersonating him, posing as Fati Kachalla, a doctor from London:


urrently scamming a friend of mine on posing as a Dr. Kevin Williams supposedly on a “retreat” or “peace mission” in Syria tending to soldiers!!!


He is Frank Rodriguez using Dr Pinto’s photo’s as his own, Said he contacted Interpol about him using his pics . He is in Afghanistan under the Spains UN. as an Orthopedic Dr. I talked with him for 3 months on Hangouts. He first asked for steam cards , then amazon . Then asked for 8800.00 to retrieve a investment package in a security company in france. He is charming and used words to reel you in. I fell for it at first , but then when he asked for a Versace bathrobe to sleep in at night. I knew.… Read more »

Said he was a dr. working in Yemen. but I used the reverse pic on google and I confronted him calling him a scammer and he blocked me on all social media. He is still on tiktok even though I have complained he is scamming. this person is still out. there. have found him on word with friends too

Maria Pilarski

I received a message and a photo that looks like this Dr. F Pinto in Instagram but he introduced himself as Johnny Faevel to me. The grammar and spelling of his English was not fluent. But anyway he ask a lot of questions, and then he says that his wife died from Vehicle Accident and that he is widow. The conversation with him was a couple of weeks, I was very suspicious then. Then he later ask me to pay his medical bills, 5K but I got so worried and ignored it completely.


The Dr’s pictures I have seen all over POF and is now on Facebook dating


Yes he is on FBDating website by the name Jeffrey I saw his picture of Dr pinto it’s the third time n report to FB


I live in Chicago he was on Hppn… used his actual real name Dr. Fernando Gomes. I just googled his name and found out..fake


This scammer claimed to be Alexander a dutchman working in Copenhagen as a mechanical engineer. I got suspicious when I read his writing in English is far off and I asked him to write to me in dutch, he just kept on dodging, I know any dutch person would be happy to oblige to that simple request. He said that “Hague City” is a neighbourhood in Amsterdam (hahaha), he can’t even spells Copenhagen correctly. I was already suspicious on the first day which was yesterday, and today I decided to google the photo and it lead me here.


Lähestyi miua nimellä Michael Park ja Jolly ja sanoi olevansa kirurgi ja on YK työtehtävissä Jemenissä.


The scammer posted as Michael Gaona in Internations in Nov 2019. He writes very well. I was suspicious when he used Dr Pinto’s photos. Because Dr is too good looking. But I play along with the scammer. After correspondence through hangout for 6 months, he finally asked me to be his beneficiary for First Shares LLC and said he is in Jordan & has problem to access his US account in North Carolina to buy Covid 19 Testing kits. He even provided the specification and documents for the test kits in China. It is a syndicate group looking for victims… Read more »

Gavin Boloski

He is still doing it out here but didn’t fall for his story luck find this site


I did the same. He told me he had an 11-year-old daughter named Lia, even had a “nurse“ call me from the UK, saying he was in the hospital and was hit by a car. He claimed he had lost his backpack and people were following him because he had bought a diamond from an auction. This goes on and on. Somehow, this person hacked into my mobile phone account, and has found my name on the dark web and is trying to make purchases in my name and running my credit. Hopefully, I have done everything I am capable… Read more »


Hey, sorry for your losses. Contact me on, let’s track the scammers


Hi what is the address he gave you for the UN and the account Number or bank under who’s name see if we have same one or they are many of them


A guy named John Michel contacted me on Instagram using those pictures from the dr. He asked me to send him some pictures from, and I asked the same. He said hus IG profile was hacked! He make a terrible mistake, he sent a picture with the real name of the doctor!!!! hahaha
He denied it, that person is so stupid, I send a picture from the real doctor with his wife!!!!!!


Was scammed by a guy named Henry slogan saying he was this man. And I thought I was talking to his kids.

Beth C

Facebook profile Chris Nasker is using these pictures as well, I know better than accept friend requests at face value. Family member lost over $5,000 because of a Facebook scammer. I know of some people who know others that have lost tens of thousands of dollars.

Everyone should do their due diligence when accepting friend requests there are too many scammers out there, we are responsible for our accounts and who we accept as friends and if we believe they are who they say they are.
