"I hate my life, I'm going to kill myself, etc. I know, I know. I need to end it. So why don't I? What's my problem? I am a mess!"

This is blackmail. If someone threatens suicide over this, my advice is to call the police.

"I need to be strong and block him on WhatsApp."

Yes, you do.

" I did not think he had my number but apparently he did or he got it from a mutual friend. Suddenly after 2 weeks of no contact, the calls and texts started coming in fast."

When the well runs dry, the scammers are gonna cry........

" my Moroccan man put up a picture of me and him as his profile picture on Facebook and a different picture of us as his profile picture on WhatsApp. "

I've actually had this happen to me. A woman I met on-line was routinely cheating on me and using me for money. When she saw my dating profile changed to that I had moved on from her, she came running back. If you really push them away and start blocking them, they'll do this in order to win you back and they do it because as you can see it works. But at this point, the cat is out of the bag and you *know* it's a scam. You have to be as tough as them, Michele or they'll walk all over you. If this is still a problem, you need to uninstall these programs and not use them anymore and change your number and be not give it out to mutual friends.

Also---some friend if they give your number to this guy knowing what happened. Really.

Submitting....
