Other Comments:
He found me on, professed his undying love & trust for me within a few days and we hadn't even met! He always avoided answering questions about his family members who are all supposedly dead, except for being a widower and raising a daughter all alone. He told me he was looking for a life partner for himself not a mother for his daughter & was willing to send her away to live with an aunt somewhere else if I had no interest in being with a man with children. He romanced me by IM & text and phone calls for about a month, said he had to go to Ghana to see about the expansion project on the orphanage he inherited from his late father. Told me I was a part of his life now so he was going to share his flight info with me by email, but the info did not contain any flight numbers; altho he had told me he was going on KLM to Amsterdam and then on to Accra. After he got there, he asked me to receive funds in the amount of $100,00.00 he had secured from an investor here in the states. Once I said NO over and over, he/we started going on about what other options were available; which is when he started asking me for money for his living expenses because he had withdrawn all his own funds from his own bank account and now had no money to live on. And would get very upset and tell me how disappointed he was in me that I did not trust him and of course would not help him. He also claims he is Norwegian, but I've been told that his accent is not Norwegian.

Met on on June 1st this year. I just found this online. The email he sends me had pics of him and a little girl he calls Eileen said is his granddaughter that he's raising. Said everyone else is deceased. I decided to look him up when he said he lived in Springfield Chicago which we all know are two cities . he asked me to call him at 469-319-1351 which is a Texas area code but when I called he didn't answer and there was some weird message that said the extension was unavailable. When I texted he said he was in New York and to call him at a different number. This man is the kind of person that causes honest good women to become bitter and fend of men. Be careful. I was smart enough to research him before he could ask me for anything and waiting for his text so I can tell him about his self. He kinda dumb too, he uses the same pics and email addresses with every woman.

This is very typical scammer tactics ,scammers has always deceased relatives whether it is spouses or parents in their scenarios.Scammers wants to create empathy in the victim so the victim open ups the wallet .I wish all people would be like this when it comes to scams online .
