Report N1 (added on May, 24, 2012)

This man sent me a msg in Match and then asked if we could chat in yahoo messenger. So we exchanged email addresses and added each other in yahoo messenger. He said he is an art collector and currently in London for business. He was born in UK , Manchester and moved to North Carolina 15 years ago by his uncle influenced. He said he used to also live in Greece where his mother now lives and never knew his Italian father. He is self employed, he buys paintings and resells it to his clients. So we communicated through yahoo and also texting each other everyday. Two weeks later he said he's finishing bussiness deals and that he will fly here to Australia to see me. He then sent me his booked ticket confirming flight details. I went to pick him up from the airport on the day but he didn't show up. I waited for an hour an a half and then got a phone call from a man named James claiming to be a man working for the custom agency informing me that William has been delayed because he was found to be carrying a lot of cash with him and they needed to investigate. This was 8am and I didnt hear from William until that night that custom are still keeping him . He said he needed a lawyer but could not get one because he needed to put down payment and the custom would not allow him to touch the money as they are keeping it for evidence. He said he has done all the talking and he is out of options but to get a lawyer. He said he has no way of getting the money anywhere else. I'm his only friend. He didn't ask for money and I guess left it for me to offer. I then began to smell a rat so I was quick to say that I'm sorry for what he's going through and only if I was in the position to help then I would have but with 3 kids to support I couldn't possibly do it. He thanked me and never heard from him again . I checked on the address he gave me under US white pages and it's under a name William B Choate. He spelt his surname CHAOTE. He said that property was left to him by his uncle. I have also questioned him why all his pics are so blurry and thumbnails size. He said they weren't blurry in his computer . I also questioned him about the spelling of his surname. He said white pages didn't spell it right. That gave me warning signs that something wasn't right. He's obviously used another man's identity . His voice didn't match his looks. He had an accent which was hard to work out, noisy background. It was difficult to hear and understand him. Though he wrote perfect English but I didnt think he spoke English well at all. So that was that.. He figured he couldn't get anything out of me so he stopped sending me messages.
