Am very sorry for you guys cause have never been through such,but at first when i met veronica a black nigerian girl with email email@example.com telling me i have to pay for her ticket fee to US i felt it was a scam but i told myself let me give it a risk cause she was beautiful and was a model in nigeria.but when i got to the airport i met her and took her home and a week later she said she was going back but the sad story was that she did not agree to marry she said she is just here to have fun with me and that how she have been having fun men round the world and i called her a bitch she slaped me lol and at the end i did not loose cause i had fun with her and she told me things about how to know a scammers and had realy helped me.and am married now with an online girl.
The BTA fee is a scam created by Nigeria scam artists. The BTA stands for 'basic travel allowance.' This term is used by scammers on dating sites to steal money. They will claim that they are at the airport flying to see their victim, but they need the BTA to fly. The only things needed to fly to Nigeria or from Nigeria is a passport, i.d., and airplane ticket. The legitimate BTA was used almost fifty years ago to keep poor countries from loosing all of their money.
Hello I'm reporting a scam that has just blown my mind after reading before post!!! I didn't feel right about the whole thing so I started investigating on my own before I would sent one penny!!! I met this guy on Facebook his name is Liam Clarke... He claimed to be a LT Command Officer for the United Stares army and was retiring in November this year.. Well the first scam was that his mom was sick and he wanted to wire me money to send his mom care giver money... Well that was just flat out stupid you just don't do things like that... But he also works with a so called cousin on Facebook that keeps in touch with me... So as time goes past he comes home from Iraq and is suppose to come visit me in Las Vegas but he has to take a trip to Africa for a week...!so now the scam starts... All of a sudden he's been tranquilized and left on the side of the road ... Oh yeah I forgot he went to Africa to pick up a 750k check that they didn't get cause it was in his shoe... Really anyway so they stole all his ID passport...etc now he needs 2900 total to get airfare ID.. Bta... And some fine at hearthfro... I told him to go the the US embassy he gave some name of somebody who would agree to help him cause he's getting ready to get kicked out the hotel...everything I suggested he said sending cash was the only way or he was going to get kicked out so when I told him that I didn't have any money he insisted that I try to borrow it and that he didn't have anyone he could borrow from except from me... His mom and cousin had already sent what they could... And it was all up to me... So I started checking the web and came cross this web site!!! Which I think is the best thing since sliced bread!!! Thank you so much for all the info posted here it saved me my little coins I do have!!! Shame on these scammers I hope the get caught soon... Real soon

Most definitely you are dealing with a scammer, dont send him any more money.How do I know this ?
1. No one has to pay or buy documents to leave the army
2. Why would a soldier be deployed in New Delhi? India has the 10th largest army in the world which is professional and deals with national security.
3.BTA is a scam there is no such thing as Basic Travel Allowance any where in the world.
4. I Googled Kenneth George scammer and sure enough Sergeant Kenneth George popped up.
This is the hallmark of the scammer, that he is from one country but lives and works in another often claiming to be widowed with a child.
Keep away from this man and stop all communication
