Dr Edmond Phillips ..I played along..before he could even try to scam me.. PLEASE LADIES TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS SYNDICATE OF NIGERIAN SCAMS..one can love you if they don't even know you or saw you in real life..... Also his 15 yers old son James in bording school phoned me with strange accent (it did not American accent at all).He emailed me sometimes and called me mum..his email title showed the name "Patricia"??
His profile pic is a very handsome man, caucasian looking. Things went great the first few days until he started asking me for money telling me his child has malaria and needs to medication.
Since he didn't ask me for money yet, I don't 100% know it's a scam, but it seems very, very fishy (especially since there are a couple of similar profiles with a variation of the name). I've gotten friend requests from these guys on Facebook since my status changed to widowed a couple of years ago. Most of these military love seekers are scammers just looking to hook you and get your money. They know that women who are widowed are vulnerable and they want to take advantage. He sent pictures of an extremely handsome man which I believed was him. From the moment he charmed me, I decided to scam the Nigerian back, I knew it was a scam cause it happened to my friend. Asked me for payment to a lawyer for an immigration documanet to move out from danger area and buy an air ticket through money gram.
They are easy to tell on Facebook (few photo's, no postings, friends, ect). Like others have said, if it's too good to be true, it is! I immediately searched Google and there was his name... ITS ENOUGH THAT THEY BRING DRUGS INTO THIS COUNTRY FOR OUR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE!! NOW THEY WANT TO SCAM THE MOTHERS AND STEAL THEIR MONEY. YOU DONT DESERVE THESE SCAMS JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE HUNGRY FOR LOVE AND ATTENTION!! The lawyers name is Cindy who lives in Texas Fortworth.
I was so gullible for the love but as soon as he asked me for money I cut him off completely.
The best advice I can give you is if anyone asks for money or your bank details to transfer money into - cut them off totally and report them to the site you originally met on.
