UK / Nigerian Scammers



  • edited 5:49PM
    You're bitching about a few hundred dollars?? Come on, it is hard to earn a living in Nigeria; don't know about India since they control all the telephone and internet services for major corporations across the world. The bottom line is that you don't like the guy or you would have stayed longer than a week. If you liked him, maybe you would be happily married to him. Laptops are their link to the world and a necessary part of every day life in most countries, third world too. He is depending on you and it is obvious you don't really love him so move on and let him starve, hustle or work.

    According to my adult kids, you must assume that everyone has multiple aliases on the internet. People want their privacy and sometimes Yahoo with an alias is the only way to get the privacy we need to avoid the tracking that most internet providers implement. There is no fourth amendment privilege our RIGHT TO PRIVACY after 911. Using aliases on yahoo allows us (in America and other countries too) to use our right to the first amendment privilege which is the FREEDOM OF SPEECH. There is so much discrimination against Nigeria these days. Nigerians are wonderful people compared to some ethnic groups here in the US. If you loved this guy, you would help him through his tough times...

    To love or leave:

    So he is not a romance scammer? Ok fine, that money is nothing, for as long as he is not like that. YOu can't blame me I just want to be cautious. By the way, about that week stay, it's because my visa was about to expire so I need to go home. I applied to early but was unable to visit india immediately.

    Hey Jelly,
    the only way you will know for sure is to spend more time with him, you don't have to rush into marriage, get to know the guy first, then decide if he is genuine, and if you can spend the rest of your life with him.

    Thanks Angelique for this advice. Yes i should spend more time to know him more.
  • edited 5:49PM
    By the way in quest to find out what he is really doing, I tried to access his yahoo account, but of course I failed. However, I found out that one of his security questions is "Where did you spend your honeymoon?" Is it possible that this man is married and that what he is doing to me is out of his craft?

    Thanks again for any advice.

    OMG, I am so glad that I found this discussion. A little over a week ago, I was contacted by a woman on who did all the stuff described by others on this site: Sent poems; said I was the only one for her; chatted with me on Yahoo IM. She told me that she was originally from Odessa, Ukraine & that she has lived in Texas since age 25 (46 now). She told me that she is in Nigeria shopping for antiques for her (unnamed) business. I was being kinda cautious because she seemed to be too good to be true & then the red flags started popping up. First she asked me if I would send her $700 so that she could fly to my hometown to meet me. Then yesterday, she wrote & said that she had been robbed & had no money & was stranded in Nigeria. I was on High Alert by this time & told her as much. I have no money to send her, so there was never any chance of that happening, but I am just appalled & embarrassed & disgusted that this happened to me. Ladies, this is a "woman" who is pretending to be a Lesbian. She sent 4 photos of a lovely blonde woman supposedly named Tami Kiefer, age 46, from Belton, Texas. I was trying to find more info about her on the Internet before the robbery story came up & it seems possible that she has stolen the identity of a woman in Texas with the same name, but with a slightly different birthdate. The red flags started popping up when she was evasive about answering certain questions & then also contradicting herself regarding certain answers. So I hope this helps someone else to not get taken in by this cruel schmuck. So much for for me.

    How long have you known each other before that robbery story came up? what is the month interval when she comes up with another story? It seems the pattern with scammers is that they come up with such stories in an interval of short period of months. this probably what differs them from those who are having real relationship. Scammers are very obvious because they are profit oriented and they want the money to be sent immediately, usually involves larger amount of money in short period of time of acquaintance. The target victims are whites because they can afford to give larger sum. But I read in article that they are starting to target Asian women too. Please note, in dating site, if one meets a person who confess to have a good job and then suddenly ask money, this is a scam. Real people with good jobs wont ask any financial help to someone they know online for only few months. They would rather ask assistance to relatives and closer friends, and they have banks that could grant them loans. I hope all other readers will learn from this.

    MomOf1 DON'T send him any money!! He is just playing on your feelings -- he is not who he pretends. I was contacted by someone like this & it was so much fun til I realized that it was all about stealing money from me. I suggested the US Embassy but she made up some excuse. I suggested friends & family, but she acted like she didn't have anyone. It's a scam, as sad as that it is! He will never come to the US -- just stop all contact with him to protect yourself.

    Hello there,

    I am wondering if anyone has heard of a guy named Michael Kent. He contacted a week ago on Yahoo Messenger and sent me a photo of a very good looking man. He told me that he was divorced and has a 14 year old daughter. He said that he lives in Newport Tennesse, first said working as a Civil Technologies then said working as a contractor. He said that he married a lady In Tennesse his ex wife was originally from Nigeria. He also said that the reason why he divorced her was that she cheated on him with his bestfriend, and she took the child back to Nigeria. Sadly enough the ex wife died of cancer a month ago and he is trying to get the child back in the States. He said that he is not sure how to go abouts in getting her back since all her travel documents have been destroyed by his ex. Too many conflicting stories on this one. Now yesterday he said that, he is coming to see me in two weeks. I was taken aback by this as was encouraging him to come and visit me but he said once the papers for his daughter Kimberly are all cleared up. I was ok by that, then all of a sudden two days ago, he is coming to stay with me for good.

    He sent me an email everyday professing his undying love for me...I have to admit it was so nice to read those emails but I know it was too good to be true. Yesterday, he said it is his daughters birthday coming up on July 2, and when he spoke with her he told her all about me and she was excited to meet me and wants to call me mom. I said all s good, then the big shocked came to me. He wanted me to send her a gift for her bday. I said how can I do that since you were telling me it is so hard for them to recieve anything you are sending her, and that they're always complaining that they are not getting it. He said that I can send the money to her guardian Mr. George....ah oh yah earlier on the conversation he got upset that i didnt trust Mr. George, he said that he took care of his daughter for many years..kind'a funny when he said that he is tired of dealing with black people with black attitude..I think he was just trying to get my trust...anyways we had a long arguement about it becuase I refuse to send money to someone I don't know...he said I would not spare 200 pounds for our daughter...I told him that i will buy her a gift but would give it to her when she gets here...he is insisting that I send her I kind'a let it go for a bit just to see what he would say coz I was doing my research on him too...but unfortunately I could not find anything on him...I sent him an email asking her guardian information making him believe taht I will send the is the info..

    Recievers Name: Idahosa George
    City: Ogbomoso
    State: Oyo
    Zip Code: 23402
    Text Question: Best Colour
    Answer: Pink

    and he wants me to provide him personal information about myself too...and I refuse...I only requested this information to get the name of the person, but I could not find anything on Michael Kent or this Mr. George...he knows I am suspecting him but doesnt know yet that I know he is scamming me...I am not sure how to proceed with this...he sent me 3 photos of this nice white man and all the same photos and 2 photos of his daughter Kimberly...Michael said that his father was from Trinidad and Tobaggo and mother was an american and only child. I told him I want to see Trinidad since I have a cousin there right now....and he didn't say much...

    Any info about this man would be greatly appreciated....I have the photos too and all the email he sent and i saved all Im conversation we had....thanks

    I just had another conversation with MR. MICHAEL KENT today..wondering why I did not reply to his emails last night proclaiming his love for me....

    He is also very insisting that I send a birthday money for his daughter Kim in Nigeria...I got so frustrated...when he kept going on and on about it but since I told him about that I will buy her a gift here and gift it to her when she gets here and will call her to great her happy birthday but I guess that is not enough...I just could not find anything on Michael Kent..he seems legitimate but I am having a hard time believing it...too many inconsistencies....I am not sure what to do here anymore coz I even got to the point where I told him I don't feel comfortable sending money to Nigeria...ggrrhhh...I went to every website I can find but no luch in finding Michael Kent..even his email seems clean....He has an account on facebook and a different photo there too that he hasn't sent me but it is the same man....grrrhhh wish I could find something..this is frustrating....
  • edited 5:49PM
    I think gift is enough if he really loves you and he will appreciate it much. He won't ask for more considering that he knows you are a woman. And if this is a decent man, as what he confesses, he won't even ask you to send her daughter a gift. He will wait for you to voluntarily do it, because they like to be surprised on your sweetness. If ever a man will ask you to give her daughter a gift, he would suggest it but not force you to do it.
  • edited 5:49PM
    Hi Jelly,

    I know for a fact this is a scam...we had yet another conversation last night when I refuse to give in to his demands of sending $400 to his daughter as a gift he started swearing and told me what I took him for?...I even volunteered to buy her a Tiffany necklace or bracelet...he called me stingy..hahaha thought that was really funny...I have recieved another 2 sets of emails from him at exactly 1:45 am, one is insisting I send the money with a very broken grammar and horoble spellings and the other with a completely perfect grammar...he found me on facebook and I will be reporting him...I just could not find anything on MICHAEL KENT (MICHAEL_KENT65@YAHOO.COM) sad....he is trying to use God and Love to get me to send the money....thought that was funny if he thinks he is going to get a penny out of me...all red flags came up when he started talking about getting his daughter back and the papers have to be done over there...I cannot believe how some people could be cruel, you befriended them and thy're trying to scam you....

    I am just about to report the profile he had on facebook but it was gone....

    I am soo thankful for this Discussion board!

    i believe i've had the same type of encounter and his profile was listed on website he's also listed on Facebook
    professed to be from Italy, Rhome , a widower w/ 5 yr old... calls himself Marcus Moretti Wheat ... says he is a road and bridge engineer ... when first meet his profile said he lived in Lousiville, KY and he told me he had been there only a few months.. had won a contract and was going to W Africa within 48 hours and he would contact me there .. he was afraid i didn't believe him so he emailed me a scanned copy of a birth certificate and a "supposed" contract that he had won. ... we talked for several days via yahoo IM. claims he has put his home (that is in Italy) up for a 2million collateral to complete this contract in W Africa.
    Funny thing is...HE sent me a "URGENT" instant message, Followed up by an email saying he was ashamed he has to ask a lady for help but needs money to keep the internet on so we can talk! ... says there's only 5 hrs and some odd minutes left "BIG RED FLAG" told him i did not have any money and that he needs to give me an address where I could write to him. He took his time and then finally gave me the following name & address:

    I had one try to scam me a few years back. He claimed to be a European working in Nigeria. To account for his poor grammar and spelling, he claimed to have been raised in Spain. After a few emails brimming with "I'm insanely in love with you, my sweetest soul mate, I'm going to fly to the US for the holidays and marry you!" lines (these guys are about as subtle as sledgehammers), and his utter failure to comprehend even one word of my basic spanish, I decided to type "scammer Nigeria romance" into a search engine. Presto, 419!

    I was pissed, and he never even got to ask me for money before I was onto his scam. That said, I don't want anyone tortured by Nigeria's disgusting government over it. Nor do I think anyone should send these con artists their money. If you want to help Nigerians, send money to reputable watchdog and human rights groups (make sure they aren't affiliated with the US government).

    The people of Nigeria have been scammed for decades and are still being scammed by US and international oil companies, with the help of Nigeria's horrible, brutal government. The oil companies come in, make massive profits, hire very few local workers, pollute the air and water, give nothing to the communities who live on top of that petroleum, and then move on when they've sucked the area dry.

    Scamming lonely people for tens of thousands of dollars is horrible, but it pales in comparison to scamming (and often torturing, terrorizing, and murdering) people out of millions of dollars in oil wealth that could have gone to building schools, roads, and hospitals.

    Oh, and maybe all that nasty malware and spyware that infested my computer during my brief and one sided love affair was mere coincidence, but just in case, be sure to run some virus scans and change your email address after any encounter with one of these scammers.

    I'd like to comment on Nemg_lina posting which was make on August 28th. I too have been contacted by Nelson Ben! He contact me through a dating site. His posting on the website stated he lived in the USA, but once we begun IM'ing I find out he lives (so he says) in Singapore. That he was raised in South America. He has no family left. His parents were killed 11 years ago in a crash. He has a younger sister MaryAnn, but they are no longer close now that she is married. He said he moved to Singapore 9 months ago to be closer to his Textile farm that he owns in Thiland. The red flag went up for me the moment he said he lived out of the country yet posted on a dating site that he lives in the states. He said he was in that city for business, when he originally posted his profile. He moves very quickly telling me within days how much he likes me and can see himself with me. I don't buy it one bit and since have stopped talking to him. Please be careful out there, please are something now a days.

    Hi i just got scammed in ordering iphone in Uk he gave me the address that he is in manchester and when I confirmed it to the western union they said the money was picked up in london and so the guys cannot provide me with the tracking number. I conclude they were scammed and try to cancel my transaction and said they will owe me nothing if i do that. I told him that i will file a complaint and he can be easily tract down because when i talked to the western union they will provide the authority that will be needed for the crime, best thing is that we have cameras all over the world :) Even if they have valid ID. I reported it to my friend he's a General and working on it, ill will not stop until they get pay for the crime they made.And now im waiting for progress but before that i also report it to ic3...I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ON HOW TO TRACE THE IP ADDRESS?

    Hi all I think I have been played here.Met this handsome Italian guy on dating site he's from UK then he travelled to Nigeria for business.He does not travel with cash he only uses credit card.His credit card is not accepted in Nigeria so he asked for money to settle the hotel bill and buy plane ticket to come and see me in South Africa.He promised to give it back as soon as he land even sent me copy of plane ticket.Now as he is about to board the plane they demand Basic Travel Allowance from him of R1000.00usd. Now that I said I don't have the money he is still in Nigeria they wouldn't let him leave.I suggested he goes to UK embassy he gives me an excuse and when I suggest he calls a family member or colleuge back home still gives me an excuse.
    The way he is crying I actually thought his story is for real.He even proposed to marriage to me and he is coming with the ring.

    A few years ago, I got scammed by a guy who claimed to be american-turkish desent, he changes up his name a lot, but I talk fast and confused him so he contradicted himself. He went with the story that he was an engineer, then a contractor, in Ghana, then transferring to Lagos Nigeria; said he was divorced, wife caught cheating w/BF. says he lived inCA, then Seattle, then Atlanta. Asked for $$$ numerous times for numerous reasons, medical bills, got robbed, daughter in crash and in coma, sister in DV marriage trying to escape husband in south africa, etc. Then on theway here and all of a sudden he's arrested at the airport w/cocaine in his carry-on and needs bail money and bribe money to be released and allowed to fly out of Lagos, BTAis bullshit--if you'reflying KLM (which seems to be the airline of choice for these scammers) you get fed and don't need $ to eat on the plane. If all you're concerned about is getting out of a country where all kinds of bad things have happened, then flying broke means nothing, as long as you're on the way "home". This guy had fake checks sent to me and almost got me locked up over them. anyway, he went by Phillip Morgan Corbin, MANY email addresses, all on yahoo, he was also, and now he's going under His daughter's name was supposedly Erika. What kind of sick person would make up a child, or heinous ailments to get $? Like one reader posted, they'd do better to be honest, since Nigeria is an impoverished country due to government corruption, to be honest and ask for help instead of breaking peoples hearts and bank accounts. Good smart and be safe

    Scammer is on Uses the name of solomon11, ussolomon11, toneyloves, toneyloves1, usstoneyloves, email Uses the name Tony Steele, Toney Steele, Felix Steele. Uses the age range of 45, 46, 49, 51. Claims to live in Pensacola, Florida. I tricked him and said I was on my way down there. Suddenly he is not there and is now in Orlando. I said, "okay, I come there, give me the address". Now he was stuck and so said, no just go to Pensacola. I guess he thought he would save me the extra miles just to find out it was a scam. In the end, he laughed said all his friends were laughing about a desperate woman that would drive to Pensacola. He called me names, abused me verbally and even threatened to kill me. QWho knows how many ads this guy uses but he some how calls from a Pensacola area code of 850. He must use some type of VOIP. He called day and night. Seemed he never slept. He certainly never worked. When he sent text the text messages came across funny on my phone. It was one word then skip to the next line and the next word and so on. It is more than obvious that whatever he was using to send text on was a keyboard and was not very compatible with a cell phone texting system in the U.S. He always made errors such as when it should be a "u" he put "i", which is right next to each other on a keyboard so his typing errors made it evident he was typing from a keyboard or at least a Qwerty keyboard on a cell phone which is highly doubtful because of the way the text were not compatible. Also I am sure it was not a cell phone as he claimed because I did a cell phone search on one of the websites and it said it was from a landline which is how it shows if you are using your computer to run your phone through. In the end when I called him out on it, he admitted it and would not quit with his harassing text. I finally text and said, "do not text me again. consider this your official warning. If you text again I will report you for harassment". That scared him off and he stopped. Signs were there that something was wrong. He did not ask me for money but he mentioned things that I knew where they would lead. such as he was saying he is going to go in on a bar/restaurant with friends in Pensacola. (the fact he couldn't even spell Pensacola right but claims to live there). When I said I wouldn't want to be with a man that owns a bar. Then he abandoned that business idea and next tried to get me to go look at a website that sold african stuff, and he was saying that he wants me to build him a website so he can sell stuff from there. I said no. Then he tried again with this african stuff and tried to lure me to go on that site just to take a look and give him advice because he will try and sell it at festivals etc. I never went to the website. I would encourage all of you to steer clear of a website like that in which someone is insisting you go. They can spread a virus on your computer, or possibly try to get you to create an account there and thus get your passwords, etc. lots of people use the same password to order online as they do for email addresses etc. Well the good news is the guy got nothing out of me and wasted a couple of months of his time. The bad news is that he wasted a couple of mine as well.

    FYI: the above post regarding Tony Steele in Pensacola, I never did find out exactly where he is located. Also, he has an american sounding voice and posts a picture of a black guy. He only has a total of 6 and can't come up with any more than that. He says he was born in the Caribbeans, but then later said he was from Brooklyn New York (after I asked him if he was a month prior... haha). He sounds like a white guy from the U.S. and on one profile says he was never married, another one said legally separated, another said divorced. one profile says he has one kid and one taht lives with him. one says one kid and it doesn't live with him. One profile says he smokes socially and one says he doesn't smoke. He was also posted out on craigslist but took that one down when I found it. When I was talking to him he acted very jealous, which only makes it seem more real that his feelings are genuine. Don't be fooled by that. In the end all he is after is to scam, and keep in mind, he is not just talking to you that way, he is talking to tons of other women and saying the exact same thing to all of them.

    I am searching this on line because I had one contact me on Face book. I rarely accept friends i do not know on face book but i asked him how he found me. The usual I like your smile. Short story he asked for very expensive party for his daughters birthday, did not send money, asked for money for her expensive field trip (in nigeria) and he is working in Scotland and lives in NY working for Exxon. I started researching him by his email address the the UK phone number he gave me. Nice pic on face book but it is not him. Even sent one with him and daughter!! When i searched the email address also found the phone number he gave me on all the scams he was running for a nanny and it led to more scams running same add, different email addresses but same UK phone number which was blocked when he called, When he unblocked it was a US number from california. When I first got suspicious i told him to take a pic of himself with his blackberry and send to me right then. He could never do that. His name is Kelvin Roberts (at this time) and he runs scams on line for nanny's for hire. His last attempt was to get his paycheck for him and send to him in Scotland so he could make trip to Nigeria. When i could not do that and made other suggestions to him that would work better he got really mad. Always making it look my fault. My brain does not work this way so this really amazes me. He sure was a lover until he got mad. When I did finally talk to him in Scotland, he does not have a NY accent or Canadian which he claims is where his dad is from but very strong Nigerian!!!. Imagine that. I don't mean to slam anyone from Nigeria I know there are scams all over the world, it just seems they have had them come out of the woodwork. Just some tips if you do not know...their written and spoken language is not proper english unless someone is writing it for them. Most other countries do not use articles in their language both written and spoken so those are missing. Ask too many questions and they stop answering and they start not adding up. Never send money and make them feel bad for asking this of you or they will beat you down. Glad I found this spot to post. Also face book users, face book is a networking site not a dating site. But they will say they saw your pic there. Be careful that they are not contacting your contacts for money ad advised by you. They will immediately post in relationship with you so to open up your contacts. Be careful ladies (and men)
