I have met him on a dating site on tagged.com. We have exchanged IM messages. On Feb 2011-Aug 28th 2012. He asked me for money bc he was losing his internet and would miss me if i didn't send $230. I could only send him $100 in June of 2011. He made promises that he would marry me soon as he came to the states. He said he was from Baltimore, MD before he started working in Nigeria. He claims he gets his jobs online as a vsat installer. He asked me again on May 3, 2012 for $1200 i could only send $600 and he said he had to go to the US embassy in Lagos to get his passport and plane tickets. He always emailed me when he got the money but always asked me to send it to another person. He sent me an itinerary of his plane tickets for him and his 9 year old boy that was with him. He said he would be leaving for the airport the next day. Well the next day he didn't show up. He then emailed me and said he needed an additional $800 for his Basic Travel Allowance to have on the trip. Well i didn't have this i only live on disability. I told him i could only send it a little at a time. I sent him $200 in July of 2012 instead of saving it he spent it for phone bill. I have sent him no more money. Now in August 27, 2012 he said he was sending my bank account $20,000 from a client who owed him money for putting up internet satellites and she Jennifer Leigh Cobb would be the one depositing the money. The bank called me and said they weren't able to put the money in my account bc it had been wired to the bank. I talked to him on messenger and told me to send the money to him this very last time bc he was for sure coming home to me. But the bank would not let it go through. He got very angry about this. I told him it is money laundering and i am not going to prison bc of him. I told him i was deleting him from my email accounts and told him to stay away from me. I know i shouldn't have sent him money I thought he was real and tried to research him but nothing would come up. He told me once his name wouldn't come up in the white pages anywhere which then i was skeptical about this. I talked to him on the phone a couple of times. His phone number is (Personal Info Removed). I should have went with my gut feeling and wish i hadn't sent him money at all.
