Nigeria scam

edited September 2011 in World Wide
Hi girls,
Please beware of the man call Harry Wilson, Dario- [email protected] and now is Rino (same person).
I've been scammed by Harry wilson just last week after been chatting online with him for about 4 weeks (he found me on dating website like you all), the pictures that he used of a handsome man with beautiful smile.
Harry has 1 daughter who is 7 years old, her name is Luara and his wife died in a car crashed.
same old PTA story and I was stupid enough to sent $300 AUD for feeling sorry that he hasn't have enough cash to ship his goods back to UK (same story again here, he can not access his credit card). Harry claimed to be in art and craft business then he's had to go to Nigeria to get these stuffs as they are so cheap over there!!
Harry said that he will be coming to Australia to meet me once he shipped out his goods and this is when the famous PTA came in, he asked me for extra $1000 then I did some research about BTA/PTA this is why I came across this website and still wasn't sure if he's telling me the truth. At the end I've made my mind that if he's really business man he would find the way out for sure. I've told Harry that I don't have that much money and we have not yet meet in person, how can I trust him then he's so upset that I didn't beleive him. He rang me 20 times in 1 hour begging for money or he and his daugther will die over there if I don't help him out of there quick, my heart dropped and I felt so bad if this was real. He swears on his life that he will give me back the money when we meet, he also said that he spent alot of money for the plane tickets to come to see me why I don't trust him and of course he sent me info. of the flight and even gave me his account details and password just to prove that he's real while chatting with him. I've checked his acccount and found that so much money like $380,000 UK in balance but I've notice there was only 1 transaction 3 weeks ago, this is why I know that there is something wrong as he is a business man he would have more than 1 transaction even us with normal income we still have more than that for sure!!. and by the way I can still access his account now???.
They always seem to have children involve so you will feel so sympathetic about the whole thing.
Today 29 September 2011 guess what?, Harry contacted me again through the same website (I still beleive that I would find some decent man one day) but use different name as I've mentioned above and always start with "hello angel" and end up with "Don't even talk about the distance, because distance can never and will never be an obstacle to me when it comes to true love".
He still using the same picture on the profile (I'm using different name on the profile but same photo), within 2 hours he sent me 2 different profiles but may be just realised something so I can not see his photo on the second one.
I'm using different hotmail account to contact him back just to see what he has to say this time but did not here anything yet!!.. and this time on both profiles that he just sent to me saying that his wife died when she gave birth to his daugther a few years back.
I will be happy to show his pictures if someone interested or want to confirm if it's the same person of who you are dealing with now. This is my email: [email protected]
I'm sorry about my english as I'm asian that live in Australia.
Good luck to all you girls!!.
