i have been talking with [email protected]
whom I met on dating site. He's profile stated he was from Columbus, Ohio, was a widower and had a 16yr old daughter. Owns his house and buisness. Went to Nigeria to design and build a power plant. He told me he did not take enough funds with him to pay for the building materials and was not able to start the job. His daughter was with him. He needed me to send him money to come home. I told him I could get the ticket for them and he could pick it up at the airport in Lagos. He said that wouldn't work, he needed the cash sent by money gram. He was very persistent and was promised a great future for us. I finally gave in. I sent a total of $4,000 by money gram. He told me to send it to Ahmed Walek, phone # 234-802-956-7904 . The hotel man at the Gateway Hotel in Lagos on Airport Rd. This man would be able to get the cash from the moneygram and he would give him the cash. My friend did get the money, then today he said he was told by the immigration office he would need $6,000 for the BTA fees. This did not sound right and I didn't have the money to send. He kept insisting and I got offline with him after telling no several times. I want to alert everyone to the dangers of scams on the internet. When it doesn't make sense, it's not right. Think with your brain and not your heart. If you are willing to take the risk and send money, you have to know you will be throwing your money away. These people are pros and know how to get money from trusting, innocent, sweet people. They know who to prey on.
