View Full Version : mid-life crisis?

10-29-2006, 01:48 AM
well I'm 44, good looking guy, awesome job and a very good income.
So how could a gorgeous 29 year old Russian girl possibly resist me?
:DShe contacted me on singlesnet.com, her profil says she is from Overland KS.
Her first email let me know she was from Irkutsk,Russia. Time went on money was not a problem for her. As we got closer and both wanted to meet, she would now get the money from her uncle to come to Calgary, Alberta, Canada(where I live). Then it changed again, her uncle would send the money to me so I could send it to her. Is everyone confused yet, well I'm not done yet! Some where in the middle of this I offered to help(she's beautiful and in love with me)
She declined, she didn't want me to spend money for us to meet!
Eventually it did come to where yes I would send her the money($2000.00)it is sitting right here in front of me, no I haven't sent it! It's in the forum of a money order that would be taken to western union and sent to her cousin now because her passport is being used to prepair documents for her to come to me!
I could go on but I think you can see where this is going, I was pretty much at the point where I was sure it was a scam but wouldn't it be worth the two grand just in case? No I guess not! Does this sound like anything that has happened to anyone else out there?

On another forum these days there's another person being played with the "uncle" twist of the good old travel scam, with an additional Nigeria fraud streak requesting bank account numbers.

her cousin 165kg Oleg?
Well, it's probably Oleg himself you're corresponding with...

Guys thats weird I was a member of singlesnet and this girl keeps emailing talking about been together and she cant wait to meet she sounds like a real nice girl but then she told me she was in a model seminar in Nigeria she writes everyday about herself and it all sounds good but it looks like its a machine

Listen dude...

We all know most stuff out of Nigeria is scammish. So with that is mind...here;s my story.

Here's what's happened to me so far from Singlesnet regarding Nigeria. She is from Greenland on singlesnet but then tells me she is actually in Nigeria living with her uncle. Her story is she used to live in the UK with her parents and then they both died (what are the chances of that) so she went to live with her uncle. She also told me her boyfreind of three years just left her. Do you see teh sympathy victim memntalist here?

We were chatting on yahoo messenger for the firt time and there were some mild suggestion of love and sex but she seems pretty sincere and was being very light about it not tyring to fall in love with me in 5 minutes. So, that aspect was pretty attrctive compared to what i have expeeinced in teh past. I asked her what type of conenction she had and she dai dial up. I then asked about a phone number and she wated to give me a mobile phone number. I explained it was MUCH more expensive to call a mobile than a land line and why could I call her on the her home number. She said she didnt have one when I poiltly remined her that her computer was on dial up and why not plug a phone into that line.

Then I asked her if she had skype but she didn't know about it. So I decided to look up the WIFI hot spots in Nigeria and explained she could go to any on those spots with a skype phone and we could chat. I was even willing to send her the phone. (well I said I was as I may have just been calling her bluf) After I sent her the links of the WIFI spot to verify which was closer...she never replied and just vanished.

Two days later she re-appeared and we had another conversation (listed below) and she once again seemed sincere. Notice that she just disspearred once again after her last comment of "coming to me would cost a lot of money. Gone like the wind once again when I asked her what she meant. I know I'm only a couple conversation into this woman and for all I know it could have some validity to it. However, she is from Nigeria, she mis-represented herself on the singlesnet site by saying she was from Greenland and disappears at weird times.

I also noticed it tales her a long time to reply on some occasion dn not on others. I feel that when she comes online she is writing a few more people (guys) besides myself. I'm sure I will see her once again and come back her to post our conversation so we can get everyones input.

Now here is the last conversation...
