I need help. I'm not sure I am a victim of a romance scam or not. His name is Randy Steve, email is firstname.lastname@example.org
. He has asked me for money which I've sent almost $1000.00. He has asked for more. Initially I said no, don't ever ask for more again. I relented because I felt bad and told him I would try to send $700.00 more by June. He needs the money for a business venture. He says he is in the military, a major in the Air Force. He is stationed in Uganda. When I send money or gifts it's to Nigeria. He is very knowledgeable about the military, tells me stories about it. I have several pictures of him, all of them candid. None of the pictures look like he is a model or that he is posing for the picture. He says he will be on vacation February 2013 which is the first time we'll meet. He tried to come home, took a military leave but wasn't able to pay for the replacement fee? and flight fee? He said where he is stationed there is a fee for everything because it pays for the upkeep of the camp. We can't talk on the phone because he says only registered numbers can call. He seems so real, our relationship seems so real. He is a Godly man who goes to church on a weekly basis. All of what he tells me seems true. I question why he asks me for money and why we can't talk on the phone. I'm so confused. Please help anyone.
