I recently met a man off a dating site. He told me that he was into charity work and that he and I should be partners of our on charity. We named it Hope's Children. I sent $100 toward the charity assuming my money was going to help an orphanage in Africa. My "partner" is from Nigeria and he sent me some documents(2) one a receipt for my contribution and the other certified proof that our so called charity exist. Shortly after, I started receiving emails that I had won the lottery from the United Nations. Only thing is, I checked into it and found that the UN has no such lottery... What do I do? This man has asked me for $500 to help pay for his rent that he was being evicted...I still chat with this individual on a regular basis but I want him to be caught. I suspect he is with the Nigerian "419" scam. What should I do?

  • I got the same exact thing! Did he attach a "service letter" to the e mail? Hope's for children in like red print? This guy wanted me to shop for him buying toys and things of that nature for underprivelaged and poor families in Africa. I read more into it and it's a complete and total scam! They get your account info and continue making transactions without your knowledge somehow. I filed a report against something similar that happened to me and I guess "American Officials" cannot do anything about it because there's no treaty with Nigeria for them to do investigations of that nature. It's complete bull shit. I am infuriated.
