I'm here to inform everyone about a scam like this happening on friendsand.com.

I met this girl who called herself Deborah. Her profile said she was in Texas, but it turned out, she was from Nigeria. We talked for about a week until she finally said she wanted to meet me. When I told her I didn't have any money, she sent me a cashier's check for $3500. I was to cash it and send it back to her, keeping a little for myself to fill the gas tank so I can pick her up at the airport.

A week after I sent the money back, the bank called telling me the check was counterfeit. Deborah then disappeared and hasn't shown up since. My day in court arrived, and the judge sided with the bank, forcing me to pay them their money back. I have no job and no money, so there is no way to pay them back.

Currently, I am in the process of trying to stop the police from taking my car and everything else I own out my apartment to sell and get the money the bank needs. If anyone has any suggestions as to what I can do, please let me know. I have 19 days left until my apartment gets stripped down to nothing but the rug I walk on. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Pat

Pat, I am so sorry to hear that this happened to you. I wish that no one ever had to go through this. I think you should get together with the owner of this site, and tell your story to anyone who will listen. The media should know what's going on here. The American public needs to know that this is happening everywhere, and anyone could be a victim. I know there is a letter writing campaign going on with this site, it's listed in the forum announcements.
Try to take care of yourself. Sadly, you're going to have to pay the debt, and it's a tough pill to swallow, but I wish you the best of luck in the future. Stay safe and keep your head up.

Well, there's where you're wrong. There IS one way out of it. Next Monday, I'm meeting with someone who's going to help me file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. Once we start the process, they can't do nothing to me. They'll be out of my hair forever.
