This person just shows up through an online dating positing. Has his picture posted on Facebook, Match.com, etc... Is very charming and poses himself as being of a professional field (with me an Engineer). States that he is working on a project in a foreign land (for me Lagos, Nigeria). Within a week of talking through emails, he informed me that he lost his wallet and he has no money. He has a son but no family and no friends and doesn't know how they will eat. Requested for me to send $1,500 via Western Union. Became very upset when I wouldn't send the money. Stated that he is very rich but has no access to his money in Nigeria. Every week would request money for other needs. Keeps promising that he is collecting his money soon. Just needs help to collect it. Relationship becomes very intense and he begins to say how much he loves you and the emails begin to flow. Still requests large amounts of money. They states that he is placing you as a beneficary on an escrow account. Bank information seems legite. Bank located in Malaysia. In order to get the funds released $4,700 must be wired to Bank of Central Malaysia. When the banks were called by obtaining information on the internet, those banks verified that no such accounts were valid and that the sum to transfer funds is $100.00 regardless of amount. This person always has a reason why the banks aren't validating the funds - because they are trying to steal them! Also has business clients who owes him money but he can't ask them because they are busy. Beware.....this guy is very cleaver and will play stupid until it is time to get money from you! Says his parents and wife have all died. He has no family as he is the only child and his wife was an orphane. Parents were only children too!!!! He has no one but YOU!!!! All the websites have him living in different parts of the United States. But when you ask him where he is from he never gives actual information.
