thanks very much for all and be careful.

It`s a shame you fell into this trap and ended up a loser.I`m from the UK and l can tell you that it only costs about ?20.00 sterling to get a copy of your birth certificate.
If you have all these documents,whether false or not,my advise would be to contact the embassies and tell them about this girl,this is the only way they can stop her entering.To get a UK passport,which should be a deep red in colour,she would have had to apply to the UK Embassy of the country she was living in at the time and it wouldn`t have happened over night,even us who live in the UK have to wait a few weeks before a passport is issued.
l`m afraid,you allowed yourself to be sucked into a situation,where you allowed your heart to rule your head! At the very first sign of asking for money,you should have said no!and walked away.
No one can fall inlove with a person over the telephone or by photo`s it`s impossible for that to happen.True,you may like one another but you have to meet face to face first to see if that other person is who they really are.
My advise,in future,you make the arrangements and go and visit her!

I'm sorry to tell you but the odds are 100% that you have been scammed, and the simple reason is this: Nigerian. It is very likely that you are not even corresponding with a woman at all, but some guy in one of thousands of Nigerian 419 scam gangs, who virtually own all the internet cafes in Lagos.

Run away from this person as fast as you can - or if you prefer to get revenge, then string him along and do everything you can to frustrate and make his life miserable. Send him a hundred times to Western Union with bogus numbers. Do not send another penny to him, though.

03-12-2005, 09:43 AM
Thanks very much friend.i know that i have been scammed because all that he told me i not true.i talk with him every night in yahoo messenger and all that ask me is money and more money.really i hope that anybody gives me a idea to frustrate him and make his life a hill.he hopes to receive more money and wait it.maybe one have a good idea.if i send him to western union tow times and he does not find the money he will cut and know that i am playing with him and cut.
can i asl another thing? i have received much calls from a woman who speaks the english very well as a british woman and talked with her more than one time....are there women in this mafia????

i have told yo waht the landlord said , and you still went ahead with your plans , but don't forget that it is only when i give the landlord his money that all will be settled and i need you to think about this well cos you are just making life more miserable for me like this .

pls you have to be online for 8pm my time , i just got some little money from a customer today and with that i was able to eat i also tried calling you but it never went thru.

darling , since you have made the reservations , all i need from, you is to withdraw your moneny back and send me money for the landlord cos it is only if we do this i will be able to come , or you can also send him money thru western union ,

i was at his place to plead to him today but he told me his word are final.you must not make me suffer any ,more cos right now i feel like commiting suciude , and you make em beg you for money to help my situation and also make me look like a fool cos you are to help me

i am so frustrated now.

Anyone can give me his opinion?

"i was at his place to plead to him today but he told me his word are final.you must not make me suffer any ,more cos right now i feel like commiting suciude"

Send her a gun with 2 bullets, just in case the first bullet misses. Hate to see her mess up her suicide. :D

That email you recieved is gross and disgusting to read. This "woman" is dispicable, she has no class or regrads to fellow humans. She is full of crap, she would kill herself because she was going to get kicked out ofd her place?, plausable, but doubtful. As others have said in reply to this post, run and run fast as far away as you can from this pile of rotting garbage. She has now sunk to the low of the serious guilt trip ( suicide ) and trying to make you feel awful. If I was you, I would take the money spent for the reservation and put it back in your back account, not hers.

iriade, there are a hundred different ways you can frustrate them, most are stupid enough to jump for the bait as long as you make them think there is money waiting for them at the end of the line.
1. Send him to Western Union with a bogus MTCN only 9 digits
2. Next day, apologize profusely, tell him "I'm SO sorry, I forgot to include the last digit." Give him a bogus 10 digit number.
3. Next day, again apologize, tell him that you reversed the last two digits in the MTCH number.
4. You next say, "I am suspicious that someone at the Western Union office is stealing my money. I have contacted the supervisor to complain and demand an answer what happened to myr previous transfer."
5. You are absolutely convinced that the Western Union office has a corrupt person working there. You don't trust them any more and you must insist on using an alternate service, MoneyGram.
6. Send him a bogus MoneyGram MTCN number.
7. Repeat steps 2-3 above.
8. Now you have had it with MoneyGram. Invent a fictitious instant money transfer service, say for example "EasyXfer" and tell them your scammer he needs to find the nearest office of that service before you can proceed.
9. Inform him you have $1,000 ready and willing to send, but you must be assured they can find the "EasyXfer" operator before you send anything.
10. Inform him that his name appears on a list of International Scammers, which is the reason you were unable to send him the money in all of the previous attempts. Demand an explanation why his/her name appears on the list of scammers.

Hi [8D]

I have been through the exact same scenario.. But in my case there was a hotelmanager that needed the money... Only difference is that I never sent any money... And will never do.. A descent woman would never ask for money... You have been scammed, no questions about it..

I have a better idea: he can send (her) them his bank card along with his password. This way he will eliminate Western Union fees;). And, then she will come to you Iraide.

05-12-2005, 01:38 PM
HAHA...good one..unreal what i read here..mind blowing..
i get tons of these russian and ghana/nigerian scammers emails every month..i screw with them..make them think i will send them money and make them go to western union..give it right back to them.

However, I shall forward you the necessay documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund in your country.

Peter_A, I got one somewhat similar to that. The lady's parents were shot and she was in an internment camp in Nigeria. She had money owed her from a company in New Jresey that didn't want to send it to her in one lump sum. shoulda took it. Thieves don't call the police. Instead I told her how the treasury dept tracks any transactions of over $10,000. Yep shoulda took it. Ihate thinking good after the fact. The shame of being brought up in a good home

just to let you all know 100% of the african women are scammers..especially the ones from ghana and nigeria..they all use magazine or porno photos and ask for money with 10 minutes..i like to goof with them and give them false hope..fact of the matter is most are dudes hanging out in the cafes over there..but its still a trip to screw with them..
