In Dec. 2010 I was contacted by a guy names Stephen James on the website Christian Dating for Free. We corresponded for a couples of months when in March 2011, he mentioned to me that he would be going to the UK on business. In April 2011, he sent me an e mail stating that he had a contract to purchase some household goods and wanted to know if I would accept the packages in my home and keep them their until he arranged for shipping. These items were to be shipped Africa because he had claimed that it was cheaper to buy the items in the US and then have them shipped overseas. I told him that I didn't have the financially income and limited space to store the items; and as long as I didn't have to put any money out that would be fine. Over the next few months from April -Aug. I received these packages. The contents in them were small electronics such as a playstation 2 remote, blackberry phone, netbook, and househole items such as towels, tennis shoes, t shirts etc. The last two items that were shipped were 2 generators.

In Aug. 2011, he had me fill out an credit application with DHL because supposedly they were faster in shipping the items overseas and swore to me that I wouldn't have to put any money out that a so called financial group would be paying for the shipping costs. I told him that my credit was not good and that I wouldn't get accepted. I have no idea how I got approved but I did. When looking back on the e mails that he sent to me I noticed that he had corresponded with DHL in my name and later sent a copy of the email to me.

In Sept. 2011 DHL picked up the items and shipped them to AFrica. When I received the bill the amount came to $13,000.00. I told STephen that I didn't have the financial funds to pay this bill and again he swore to me that I wouldn't be held responsible for the bill.

However, starting in Nov. 2011 he wrote me and told me that the amount he was supposed to get paid for this contract at least 25,000 pounds, that he needed my help in paying the interest. So, I then unforunately started sending him money with the hopes of him getting this money so that he would send me the amount to pay the DHL bill. From NOv. 2011-July 2012 I sent a total of $7189 to him and he never did send me the money to pay the DHL bills. By this time, because I didn't know what to tell DHL as to when I would be able to pay this they had turn the account over to an attorney's office and in June 2012 filed a lawsuit against me. In July 2012 a judgment was filed against me.

All this time, Stephen kept on telling me that he was trying to get his 25,000 pounds out in order to take care of this bill. In the last e mail I received from him he was still trying to get me to send him another $900.
The person who was his contact, he never gave him his name all he called him was the financial.
