Well it seem we know that scam is all over the world. This happen to me. In 7 different cases I received nice letters from girls in Nigeria asking from $300 to $700 because the same similar drama. They were saying lost the parents in a plain crash, they were rich and suddenly has lost everything in the blast. I told to go to the Embassy in Nigeria since they are american "that what they claim they are". The embassy will help them to get back to USA then if happen then you can meet here. But the truth they never wanted to go there because all of them are con artists and if they going there, they will be arrested in the spot. So that's stop them to send you email or contact you. They think you work for the CIA and you going to get them in jail. At least this happend to me. I learn they grab the pictures from the most beautiful models in European Magazines. So you cut them off and move on.

Men love money but they do not want to work for it. Their overtime doesn't cut it and so they become angry and target someone weak who they think could give them money. In the long run no matter how nice they were with you to get money, they leave you with nothing!
And your money could be needed for your important circumstances cause no one will give you money for free! Beware. You are doing fine by asking for help now before it's too late.

Here's the thing. He supposily is a professor who just got his Ph.D. The school supposily sent him to Nigeria for a teaching position. He told me that he paid his own way to Africa and once he got there, decided that he didn't like being there anymore. He didn't like the conditions of the country or the poverty of the community he was in, therefore, he wanted to come home.

he is a scammer..if you get Im,s from someone whos not on a dating sight just out of the blue, i have found that first off thier picture looks like something out of a magazine, secondly they all are either in nigeria, africa, or england..(so they say) they all have a story and about 5 days of conversation they start with the ""story"" AND USUALLY ITS ALLMOST THE SAME STORY EVERY TIME , last year i talked to someone for a long long time he gave me some song and dance about how his client in the states who worked at a university owed him money but couldent send it over seas what ever law,s of africia he spouted. asked me if his client could send me the check, and if i would cash it and send him a money wire..Well i told a friend about this he told me to go ahead and let him send me the check and have it checked out by my bank without depositing it..and sure enough the check was counterfit
and i wrote and told him...he tried to act like (his client) scammed him, about 6 months has gone buy Never heard from him again ..TILL about 3 days ago..this moron pops up on my
Im calling himself a different name, but with the same picture on his yahoo directory
and he completly forgot who i was..well untill i let him know..then he blocked me hahahaha

Seems at least Yahoo is full of this kind of stuff.

this is very true, and usually they get your IM from the yahoo directory, they dont have a profile, and the picture is fake as 3 dollar bill..lololo they allways are in love with you on day one, when i was new to all this i was blown away by the flattery, now, i just laugh and basicly
tell them up front there will be NO MONEY SENT EVER!! and i usually dont hear from them again..

Had the same thing happen to me once just a month back or so (but I know better) and knew it was a scam!

They opperate on y_hoo mostly from what I see. They see your email addy or IM on your personals ad & contact you using the IM - I turned my IM OFF so they can't contact me anymore!

Anyway, this "girl" started talking to me (girl = yeah rgt!) & says, "Hi- I'm blah blah blah in S. Africa & I'm coming back to MI in a week or so-- so I entertain the conversation for a few Days because that's what they do (keep trying to get you to believe they're real and interested in you!) and then hand you some story about how they want to come meet you but need money to help pay for their way!

After she/he got to that point & asked for $600 for airfare-- I said "Sure-- where would you like me to send it & how!?" lmao!

He/she says "really-- you're going to help me??" I said, "sure-- why not-- I want to meet you & $600 isn't anything to help you get here!!" lmao!

He/she then proceeded to tell me to "wire" the $$ through western union to wherever/whoever & I said-- ok, give me a few minutes and you'll get it!!

I then blocked/deleted them & shut my y_hoo IM off on the personals site for good! lol

I had the idiot going for like 2 days thinking I was going to send the $$!!

well of course hes cute his picture belongs in a ad for underware, lolololo just like the rest of them...and heck $500.00 isent alot until you collect it from 1,000 people..lololo

yea im sure he would work it off if she could ever actually find him and choke him till she gets her 500.00 bucks out of him...hahahhaha

What ever message you get from Africa is a scam.Period.Be it Nigeria(they are the leaders though),Liberia,Libya or Ivory Coast.If you are not sure if that country is in Africa or not, then contact me or look up on the world map.Simple as that.Also, be aware of the Russians too!
Any one from that region emailing for money are spammers.

Yes POF also had somebody posing as women on this site. They have been removed. The first email I got was supposedly by mistake. Then came the suggestive photographs, then the marriage proposal, then some really hot photos, then another marriage proposal. I cut it off before the request for money came in. This person was supposedly in Nigeria on business. My guess mining old guys for money was her business.

My guy from Nigeria supposedly owned his own business. When he emailed me the first time he was 6'2", 54 years old and a white man. He was living in the states but had to go to Africa to sign a HUGE contract.

The next email he told me he loved me and wanted to marry me.....RED FLAGS went up. This guy didn't even know me!

Then I got several emails that I deleted; the next one came supposedly from Nigeria where he was stranded as the country was having some political upheaval, and couldn't get his money transferred. Could I pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez "Loan" him enough to pay his hotel bills for a couple of days? He would have his "BOSS" in the U.S. send his paycheck to me. He said his weekly pay was $1,500.00 and if I sent him $400, he'd send me his whole check. Then he would stop by my town on his way back home and pick up the balance. YEAH, RIGHT!!!!

Obviously so that he would have my checking account information and clear out my business account.

My mama didn't raise no fool. I told him that he should contact the American Embassy for help. Then "I" called the American Embassy here and reported him.


A few months later my daughter was contacted by a guy the same way who was a fashion designer supposedly. He was so sincere I had a difficult time getting her to call the Embassy. An FBI investigator called her directly and set her straight fast. She was broken hearted - but not broke!

Advance fee fraud, often also known as the Nigerian money transfer fraud, Nigerian scam or 419 scam after the relevant section of the Nigerian Criminal Code that it violates, is a fraudulent scheme to extract money from victims after making them believe they will get an immense fortune. Victims are requested to pay an upfront fee before their purported fortune is released. Advance fee fraud is a subtype of the confidence game commonly referred to as "The Spanish Prisoner." All con games of this type involve the mark making an upfront payment in order to secure the promise of a reward that is somehow tied up.

These scams have come to be associated in the public mind with Nigeria due to the massive proliferation of such confidence tricks from that country since the mid-eighties, although they are often also carried out in other African nations, including Togo, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Benin, Liberia, Sierra Leone and South Africa, and increasingly from European cities with large West African populations, notably London, Amsterdam and Madrid, and lately also Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and Canada.

Originally, the schemers contacted mainly heads of companies and church officials. However, the use of e-mail spam and instant messaging for the initial contacts has led to many private citizens also being targeted, as the cost to the scammers to make initial contact is much lower.

Another recent variation of the scheme involves the use of fake cashier's checks to pay for high-value items in Internet auctions. The scammer sends a check for more than the purchase price asking that part of the money be forwarded to a 'shipper' or 'freight forwarder' after the funds have cleared. This will usually happen quickly as banking practice assumes that banks are liquid at all times and that there is no credit risk. The vendor will only discover that the check was fraudulent and the transaction has been voided a few days later, by which time the intermediary will in most cases have been paid.

For any of you who still aren't buying this........ go online and check out Nigerian Schemes and Article 419. There is a world of knowledge at your fingertips. If something doesn't seem right - check it out.

The reason these guys are from those countries is because the U.S. has no recourse to prosecute them. Straight from the lips of an FBI Investigator.

I don't know but my situation left me confused and hurt.

I met a guy and he wanted to see me exclusively and took his profile off. We were just together a little while when he asked to borrow money(4000.), and then when I couldn't he wanted me to ask my aging father. He also wanted to borrow some of my son's things (21 yr old son).

He didn't introduce me to people and he made me feel old, ugly and used. On top of everything he kept something that belonged to my mother that I accidentally left in his car. (my mother died recently)

I am a good person and didnt deserve this. And I told him to hit the road. But he wouldnt leave til the morning.

However, I do feel uncomfortable dating and I see him online here and wonder if he was just in a bad situation or if he really wanted to take what he could get from me.

I am not a perfect 10 but I am not a 0 either. I am a single mother who works hard and doesnt get child support for my son's who attend university. I dont have anything to give except love, friendship or a listening ear.

I yi yi.

what I can't believe is that you'd HAVE TO ASK! Is this a serious thread, or somebody just wanting to see how many people would post? I can't believe it's a real thread, it's such an obvious answer!

But: just in case the OP is that naive... BLOCK & REPORT THE GUY IMMEDIATELY! JEEZE!!
