Report N1

Very Smart girl so be careful. Great looking "white" girl who says she was born in the US and lives in Nigeria because of family death.
When you ask more about her family she is very allusive. She wrote an email only via absolute and then had me chat via Yahoo Messenger. I could tell she was chatting with other men at the same time because of the time it took for her to respond. I told her for me to come meet her, that I needed some personal info. She claimed she had a US passport (even though she said she was not a citizen even though she was born here!!) and when she gave me the number, it did not have enough digits and the numbers were consecutive and she put a letter in front of the numbers. When I confronted her on chat, she used US profanity very well and told me Foff!! I have not seen her on line for awhile, so she probably has changed her chat name by now.

Here is an extract from her dating profile found on Amateur Match a dating sight where I met her:
Introduction text: My name is Trisha but friends call me (Trishy), I am a lady of 27 years, Portable, light in Complexion. who is very honest and faith ful and godfearing and loves to help those who needs help from me ,I attended my primary and secondary school in nigeria,then i proceed to university to study Business Admin ,unfortunately i drop out of school when i lost my Dad,Because my Mum could not afford the huge amount of the school fees.moreover i would love to continue my education ,so to be a helpful woman in the society and the world entirely. My hobbies are Reading magazines and novels ,sport and meeting people . My likes are very simple , A very honest , humble , dedicated, hardworking ,l oving, caring, trustworthy and faithfulness, And my dislikes is not as many as my likes, unhonesty , unfaithfulness, hatred and selfishness. thats all about myself.


I began to wonder what was going on as she told me she worked from 8-6 daily yet she would send e-mails or be online at odd times and for long periods which did not fit with her saying she made only $85 a month.. so I did some checking and found this sight which showed my doubting to be correct.. I have not confronted her yet with what I've found out about her... but will next time she is online.

This scammer is different. She doesn't use the, "Need money for visa" approach. Instead, she gives you a sob story how finances are tight for her and with me she said she had some money orders from clients before her job transferred her to Africa but she is unable to cash the money orders there. After building trust with you, the victim, she says she will send you the money orders to cah for her here in the USA and then wants you to Western Union the funds back to her! Yah, right! Very slick person to be careful of.
I am attaching my initial contact letter from a scammer that I met on MATCH along with 3 pictures from that website.

I found this scammer on your website under the name Trisha Maui.

After she gives me her yahoo chat name, I began chatting with her and find that she goes by the name Nina Jones.

After several chats with her, she gained trust in me and said she has a couple money orders that she is not able to cash in Africa and wants to send to me to cash for her and then Western Union the money back to her.
Apparently her scam is passing phony checks to her victims here, they cash them somehow, must be pretty good fakes, and then she gets the cash free and clear sent to her. Pretty clever, don't ask her victims for "Visa" money.

I've attached her initial contact letter with me along with 3 photos that she had posted on MATCH.

Thank you very much for your site in exposing these scammers and I hope more men and women check out your site and are spared hundreds if not thousands
of dollars from internet dating scams.

Report N13 (added on August, 27, 2010)

This may be a common story, that the woman's parents both passed away at the same time. She said she took over her father's art artifact business and tried doing business in Nigeria. Then she needed a lot of money to get out of the country. She said she needed thousands of dollars because the customs people had her travel documents, and she had to pay her lawyer and the customs people in order to leave the country. She said she is worth $350,000, but cannot get to it unless she is at home in Dallas, TX. She gave her bank acct #, and it is true her bank's checking accts begin with a 101. I asked her to scan her Texas driver's license into an e-mail. I wanted to see a photo of the woman (I thought) I had met in the Zoosk site, and I wanted to see the address on her driver's license that matched the address she gave me in Dallas TX. Haven't heard from her since. I can forward the e-mail she sent to me with her pictures. Probably those pictures are not of the woman I had communicated with.
