REPORT N1 (added on June, 16, 2010)
Immediately after joining Match, I received an email from a supposed woman from Stoney Plain Alberta with the subject “I can relocate”. The person told me that her name was Suzan Stevens. The email prompted me to contact them using their yahoo email and IM them on yahoo IM. I contacted the person through their yahoo email and they immediately told me how much they loved me etc…They then asked me to remove my profile from Match.com as they were supposedly jealous. Several emails were exchanged in the next day or so. Each one with more expressions of undying love and photos of a woman. After a few emails, the person said that they were in Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria working at a craft show and that they would be done this Friday. They immediately wanted to change their flight back to Alberta and come to where I lived. The person subsequently told me that the flight was booked but that they didn’t have the money to change their ticket. They told me they needed $500 and so I sent it by western union. They were quite knowledgable about how western union worked.
During this time, they asked me questions about my home, my job etc…Much of the correspondence was done by yahoo IM or by texting me on my cell phone. The next day they said that it was more than the $500. They asked for another $1500 but would not tell me their flight information saying then that they didn’t actually have their flight. I did go to Western Union and wire the money. However, lucky for me, there is a 5 hour time difference and the time that I advised them that I had wired the money, it was around midnight. Through our IM chats, I had told them that I am recently separated and that I was in a lot of debt after having paid my wife off. This day, they told me that they had a surprise for me and that they were working on a contract which could make us both rich. At this time, they said they had to go away for a few hours and we would contact by Yahoo IM in 2 hours.
In the 2 hours, I started to google the womans name. Found multiple face book profiles – all of which were private and could not be viewed. I then googled Nigerian dating scams and discovered that I was being scammed. I immediately called western union and stopped the transaction and reported the fraud.
The next day, the person texted me on my cell phone saying that there was a problem with the transfer and the money was not there. I told them that my bank didn’t open for several hours and that there was nothing I could do until then. I finally texted them back and told them that there was a problem with western union and that the money was gone. I also told them that I didn’t have any more money.
They next told me that they were successful getting the contract they wanted and that it would make us $500,000. The only problem was that they needed to spend $100,000 up front. They said their father (whom died when she was a child) had some land which could be sold to pay the $100,000 but that they needed the money by Monday to make the deal happen. They asked me to try to get a loan for the $100,000 which could be repaid either when they make all their money on the contract or when they sell their fathers property.
I told them that I couldn’t get a loan for that much given my current situation and that they would have to come up with the money themselves. They tried to make me feel bad for this supposed poor woman.
I have attached all of the emails as both .txt and .msg files since I did not have the option to make them .email files. I have sent the photos under a separate email last night but they are also embedded in the .msg files as well.

My first boy friend, Victor Glashow, absconded with my dad's money which was kept with me after a completion of a contract in EAST London,UK. When my boy friend got absconded with the undisclosed sum of US dollars, this brought the first breakup between me and my dad, cos he thought, we have the deal together, but not knowing that I'm an innocent about this.until my dad passed away....
Then when I perceived all his behaviors of his newly gotten wife, i decided to leave United State to meet a friend in Sauth Africa whom I and my Dad met during our stay there for a contract with N.N.P.C. I left because my step mum was treating me bad and I later got to know about a contract my late dad executed In Sauth Africa .so I came down to take up the money from the contract.
Now, I'm in need of your help, have gotten the enough money to run myself when I get to USA, i want to come over to your end and stay with you for main time, I don't want to live here anymore, you know I'm a foreigner here and it
