Am I being conned by someone in Nigeria

edited September 2011 in - West Africa
I have met someone on line who is British and is trying to leave Nigeria, having worked there for the past five years. He claims his employers are trying to prevent him leaving, have tried to kill him, have informed the tax authorities that he has not paid his taxes in full and they have taken his passport and airline ticket until he pays what he owes, which he cannot as his bank accounts have been frozen. I have been getting texts and e-mails from him begging for money. This morning he says his lawyer has been found dead and he fears for his life. Without my help he cannot leave the country until funds he has in the states being accesible. I'm pretty sure this is a scam but do not want to desert someone who may be in genuine straits. Any advice please
