    An antique dealer in Lagos... I don't think so. He is probably grooming you to scam you. He will be telling you next that he cannot get items worth $350,000 out of customs

    He will then be detained or imprisoned and will ask you for an iphone and $10,000 to buy his release.
  • And then he'll be in hospital and need $1200 for his bill.
  • Where is my comment i wrote in german language??
  • Trauth,

    Why the German Reply?
  • After translation I see that you have no clue what it is like to have you life savings stripped away from you by a Nigerian scammer...Yes call me fool..I have made it my mission to ensure that this NEVER EVER happens to another person as long as I shall live!!

    Classic scam.There is no such thing as BTA or PTA  ( Basic Travel Allowance or Personal Travel Allowance) Do not send any more money to this person.
    Please read this thread and scroll down to the last two posts from DontScamMe and Anya K.
  • Thank you. Alethia i appreciate you. I will send no more money. ITo him I do not understand how people can do this. This is so mean for people to do this to someone to play with someones heart for money.

    I believe i was scammed by a guy named Williams Martinez who friended me on facebook 2 months ago. He started by writing love messages and emails, he claimed a business man living in Liverpool, England. He pretended be widow, with a decent past,decent education at Oxford University. He said he is 45 years old but i suspected him not telling the truth because in the pictures who he has sent to me, he looked more younger. His letters was so convincing, he seemed such sincere and honest. He asked me information about me and my family, he said that he want marry me and he will come to visit me soon. After a month he pretended having  to  deal a contract in South Africa, a big one, he said he took a loan from the bank to achieve this deal. Few days later, he has wrote to me and he said he must travel in Nigeria for a meeting with the people contract. It is the moment when i started to suspect him. One day, he called me - i must say he called me always from different numbers- and he told he need money as soon as possible to pay  a supplementary taxes  to the nigerian custom to clear the cars which he is have deal. He seems desperate, i believe him and i send him money. Deep inside, i knew something is wrong but i wanted to help him. After few days he asked more money to pay his bills at the hotel, saying he is out of cash. At this moment i started to doubting even more and i searched his pictures on Google images. I was shocked to discover that the pictures belong to someone else, a man from Brasil. When i have told him i know the truth, he recognized the lies but he invented another unlikely story about his daughter who was very ill and needed an urgent surgery.  I don't believe any word but i keep in touch with him hoping i can recover my money. I know that is  improbable...     So, i decided to make public his name(probably fake) and his email address. If someone was in contact with this scammer or passed through to same  story, i wish to contact me soon as possible. 
    His email address is : [email protected]   (by the way, i tried to search the identity of the person who has this email account and i found out another name, a person who lives in US).  WARNING !!!
  • I would just like to say ladies don't be silly when dating internationally!!! I have met and married a wonderful man from Abuja Nigeria we met several times but before that i talked to his friends and family he sent me pictures of his ID he never asked me for money as he is to proud.. If you know alot about them and their culture those RED FLAGS are easy to see!!! He is very sweet talking but i did my homework before just falling for words over a computer.Early on i got many pictures of him his family letters and trips over a period of 2 years hes a hard working man!! So please do not put this label on them all!!

    Sorry to say smooboo but you are in the minority, also you dont say where you live ( I am sure its not Nigeria) don't be so smug, you r husband may not have his permanent stay or citizenship yet so you may still be used

    Those who send money to on line people they have never met, are foolish and must have more money than sense.

    Smooboo your comment  ......"  If you know alot about them and their culture those RED FLAGS are easy to see!!! ......."  is ridiculous how can you know these peoples culture when they are pretending to be someone else. and you don't know where they are from !

    Guys I know a lot of you have been scammed but...don't go onto forums if you want to find out if BTA is real or not.....go to the official Nigeria site lol BTA IS NOT REAL IGNORE ANYONE WHO SAYS IT IS.
  • @kirox you are talking nonsense. Forums are the best places to find out what scammers are up to. The link you gave from the US Embassy in Nigeria does not mention PTA's and is therefore not all encompassing and is not an "official" authority on scammers
  • Okay sorry that well makes sense I guess in the case of scamming but THIS is the site that I meant to show It proves there is none.
