I was contacted by this man on social media Instagram (not even a dating site...). After one week of ”begging” for money I had enough. He confessed he was from Nigeria. Not an American soldier in Afghanistan. A social media app is not the right place to try to find someone. Maybe. I was not interested from the beginning.
I googled the name and found a Facebookprofile as well. I reported it the same day but Facebook didn´t react the way I wanted. I told them it was a fake profile with stolen pictures. I just feel sorry for these men who become the faces for this Nigerian scammers.
