REPORT N1 (added on June, 4, 2013)
Linda (USA)

Person contacted me after I had only been registered on match for 12 hours. Individual portrays himself as living in Norman OK working for a company as an architect. States he grew up in Spain but moved to OK in 2010 after a divorce. Claims to have custody of daugher. Father is deceased as of 2008 and claimed he had to go to Benin Republic of Africa to take care of mother after a fall. Mother needed surgery on head and back that he had to pay $40k for and his dad had left him an inheritance of $950K but he needed money wired to him to pay the fees associated with getting the paperwork processed to access the inheritance. Later came back and stated he needed money for BTA fees to get on return flight to the US, which turns out to be a scam per the US Nigerian Embassy. He sent me a copy of his flight itinerary back to the US to attempt to prove he was coming directly back to the US to see me. I noticed that the itinerary had another email address on it (that it was sent to me from ) that had a similiar naming structure as his (mymissingprince@yahoo.com). He explained that this was the booking agents email address at the airport in Lagos Nigeria (who was his mothers attorneys friend). Person comes across as extremely articulate in emails sent, but has a Nigerian accent versus that of a Spanish born individual. As time progressed, his instant message writing showed more and more signs of bad English. He will want to instant message you, but claims his camera doesnt work so he can see you but you cant see him. He is very convincing, but if you pay close attention to what he says, you can pick out the flaws in his story line. He also became very friendly with my children promising to do things with them or for them of an extravogent nature or amount. Online relationship went on for 2 weeks before the first request for money was made, which was intercepted by Western Union and returned to me. The second request was approximately 5 days later. At that point, I asked the individual to discontinue any further communication with me or my family.
