He wrote beautiful love letters and repeatedly told me he loved me and wanted to marry me and make me happy forever. He wrote and called me at least once each day even when he was supposedly in Thiland and told me I could reach him at his 709 number while he was overseas. When I called the number I got his voice mail. Then he called me and stated his MasterCard would not work in Thiland and he had run out of money. He requested $500 first and then $200 and then $700. When I told him I didn't have any money he tried t get me to go into my retirement account to get it. When I would not send him money he called me sobbing and kept pleading but I did not send him money. I accused him of being a scammer, which he denied. Then I told him goodbye and have not heard from him since.

He sent me pics of himself (very good looking) with his sweet dogs, with his beloved son. He said he found my profle on LinkedIn extremely interesting and my photo beautiful. He said he was looking for the woman of his life (the Queen) on internet because he did'y have time to go in public settings etc etc and so on and so forth. Said to be Landscape Designer, travelling all over the world, been twice in Europe and other times in Australia. Then, all of a sudden, he was called in UK for an important contract and the day he came in Europe, namely to London, he signed a 6 million $ contract with the Nigerian Gov for a big project on horticulturism. He insisted to send me the certificate, so-called Award Contract Certificate. Two days after he pretended to be in Lagos, best hotel, internet connection so that he could be online to chat continuously with me. He is a master of word, expressing himself so well, saying he madly loved me, that I am the most beautiful woman, clever, smart, sharp and that he wanted to start a new life with me and our kids (I have a son too), sending me pictures of his gorgeous swimming pool in NY and his wonderful cars (Lamborghini,Jeep). Only after one month and a half I became aware that all my doubts were well-grounded when I discovered that all his nice words, poetry and declaration were cliches easily to find out in internet, especially as samples default in stop-scamming site as this wonderful of yours. He did not manage to ask me for money because I made in on time to rumble and figure out what was going on.

Report: He said he was a gem scientist from CA and took a trip to Accra, Ghana to buy gold. He sent me flowers and poetry, lots of poetry. I fell for him hard. I also sent him $13,000.00 in the course of 6 weeks. To Ghana. To have the gold sent here and we would be rich. I should have listened to the warning bells when he first asked for money. Western Union and Moneygram. Should have listened to them too. When his business partner called today and said David would need $3000.00 more because he was now being detained for forged documents, I remembered reading about just that kind of scam. And that's when I started investigating this whole thing. I found lots of pictures of him with different names on various scamming sites. He's very good at this. I just wish I had known how to check before I was so stupid.
