I'm sorry you wasted your time on this scammer.
If you still have them, could you please post the actual messages he sent you (remove your name and information first)? Scammers often reuse the same scripts over and over again, so posting the actual messages can be helpful to other targets.
These scammers are not the people in the photos--they simply use photos copied from the internet. That's why we mark them as "stolen" or "used by scammer" or similar language--we don't want to be an easy source of new photos for scammers. Scammers will still find photos to use--we just don't want to make it easier for them.
This scammer, incidentally, is using photos of Syrian singer Mohammad Bash. http://www.wikeez.com/en/people/mohammad-bash-002
