REPORT N1 (added on May, 31, 2012)
Elizabeth (USA)

Mr Soliday states he lives in Troy, NY... peoplesearch states there is NO Richard Soliday in Troy, NY
Mr Soliday stated that he had to travel to Australia 'for business'.... three weeks into our IM chats..
Previous to this, he gave me every indication (not saved) that he was intending to come to Illinois for a visit after he returned from Australia.
While in Australia, he asked me to send him $1,000 via Western Union wire transfer. I was stupid enough to do so.
Then he sent me an EXACT duplicate IM (on Yahoo) of one he had previously sent...
Between the "I am stuck in Australia" and the money transfer (which should have been the clue NOT to trust), and then the duplicate IM, I decided I needed to investigate a bit more...
I have a few other IM's saved... all just "love letters"... none of the ones saved is the one I refer to in this final IM.. however, looking up others, there are a few variations, same general theme (!) as taking them right out of the pages of a book or off the internet sites.
