That sounds like an absolute nightmare! I've heard of it happening to others and know it can sometimes destroy everything they have.
We had a problem a while back in Toronto where somehow people's home titles were being transferred to a scammer's name and put for sale without their knowledge & there wasn't a darn thing they could do to stop it! It was such a bizarre story on tv and it turns out the man doing this had been charged numerous times for fraud but somehow still managed to keep on doing this? He'd never spent a day behind bars and was still allowed the freedom to remain on the roam for his next victim? Pretty scary stuff!!!
Did the man who stole your identity ever get charged and serve time in jail/prison? Glad to hear you've just about got it cleared up!

That is such bs. He uses the pic because the dog is cute, the name is cute and it helps him rip off women. It is convenient for him to use your dog, that's all it is.
Saying that it is to get close to you is to flatter you and his own conscience.
Who in their right mind would send money to someone you don't know? Even Western Union has warnings posted everywhere and they make a lot of money off the wire fees!
Cutie, It is certainly borrowing factual elements of your life to make himself (herself?) seem more believeable.
The scammer who contacted me did the same thing. There was no continuity in the photographs of his house, his car and his dogs, so clearly he had poached the photos from some unsuspecting person. FYI look at the background, landscape topography, skyline, etc.
Perhaps we should all think about who we send photos to especially of our pets and possessions. It just fuels the scammer fire and that beast does not need to be fed!
