REPORT N1 (added on February, 16, 2021)
Gail (USA)

Raymond contacted me by FB Messenger on 6-16-17 and I replied in a day or two. We communicated for over 18 months by FB Messenger, texts and phone calls. He introduced me to his son, Alex Putnam and we communicated by FB Messenger. I sent $100 gift cards to Ray totaling $1100 and one to Alex for school. Ray said he couldn't leave the ship (working offshore) to buy his own. Alex asked for money to help his grandmother (Ray's mother) who was dying from cancer but I didn't do it. In September 2017 Ray said he was starting his own business and needed to purchase equipment from overseas. He transferred $3000 on 9-7-17 to my joint bank account with my mom for me to transfer to Diejomaoh Arho Peter in Lagos, Nigeria. I opened an individual bank account to continue helping Ray send wire transfers for the equipment to Oneg Multi Global Ventures in Lagos, Nigeria. I also sent wire transfers to Oscar Enebeli, Oscar Chinedu, and Chinedu Enebeli in Nigeria by Money Gram and Western Union. Approximately $79,000 was sent, with about $15,000 of my own money which he promised to pay back. I stopped replying to his messages in July 2018 but he and his son still tried to contact me a few months longer. His FB account was shut down in the fall or winter of 2018. Alex texted me sometime in 2019 but I told him that I didn't know him or his father. Ray has an Instagram account using some of the same photos from FB and he was following me on my public IG account. He sent direct messages trying to restart the relationship and I replied telling him to never contact me again unless he was paying my money back. Then I switched to a private account and unfollowed him. I received a request from Ray to follow me but I deleted it. He requested again and I just left the request there. He's still using the name Raymond Putnam.
