  Filmmaker Wants to Hear from Victims

Eva van Pelt, a filmmaker located in The Netherlands, is currently working on a documentary film entitled  ‘Loving Jim Goetz.’ The film will focus on female victims of a romance scam and, in particular, women who fell in love with the pictures of a man whose real name is Jim Goetz.  His pictures are used extensively for scamming purposes and an estimate of two hundred women have fallen for - and lost money to - scammers who used his pictures.

The film wants to show the workings of these scams and subsequently try to find out what it says about our society that these scams can take place on such a large scale.  The real Jim Goetz is participating in this film as he is frustrated by the way his pictures are misused. 

If you have been approached or scammed by someone (with or without losing money) using the pictures of Jim Goetz, Eva would like to hear from you.  Eva told CUFF that "Through the contact of some five victims from five different countries, I know how devastating a scam experience can be. This is why I think this film should be made."

You can e-mail Eva directly at: eva@evavanpelt.nl.   Or you can Skype her: evavanpelt or contact her through her Website: evavanpelt.nl 

Eva assures victims that "I will NOT publish the story anywhere or make it public in any other way.  It is solely to get to know each other and to get a clearer picture of the subject. We can talk about participating in the film at a later stage after we have met."

You can also contact the researcher, Brigitte - herself a victim of a romance scam - via: info@trizzidore.nl or via: romancescam.com where she has published excerpts of her book about her scam experiences: http://www.romancescam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=55171
