travelled to London via Air Lingus (and via Dublin) to hold meetings with company Schlumberger re money owed his father's estate - arrived London 5Nov - said he got held up at gunpoint and was robbed of phone, credit cards, StgPds 3,000 (!) and a ring - said he had no money to pay for taxis, food, accom - said he contacted the US Embassy but they wouldn't assist him financially - said he reported it to the London Police (finally sent me a 'Met Police" report (made online as far as I can tell) - report had many 'information gaps' and discrepancies (which I queried) - wouldn't contact his elderly mother nor his son ("My mom is old and I am supporting my son")
told me he couldn't transfer money online (?!) and couldn't use his new credit card because it couldn't be activated in the UK (?!) - was trying to coerce me in sending him StgPds 1,000 via MoneyGram to 7 Gladding road, 12E5DD London -
