We were supposed to meet in person in Sydney but of course things happened and he couldn't meet up because he got stuck somewhere in a foreign country and couldn't get out. He said he's an American from Chicago, Illinois and is flying between America and Perth in Australia to see his mother who has dementia. He said that he comes from a very wealthy family but has no relationship with his distant relatives since his father died when he was 10 years old. His story was pretty convincing. He would use your kindness and trust to manipulate you to helping him by offering money to get him out of the country.. He would use his subtle tactics to compel you to help him financially although he didn't say it. He would test you by giving him a few thousands here and there but not a big lump sum of thousands of dollars. Eventually it added up to perhaps to $10k.
