They change the names, email addresses, phone numbers and other items so fast it gets hard to keep track. If you would like to post all of the contact info that he gave you, please feel free to. Someone else may google that same info and find your post and know it is a scam before it is too late for them.

Hello, I do recognize the name.
An associate of mine is "dating" someone online by that name who says he's from NY, but is currently in west africa for work.
My internal alarm went off and here I am. would you care to share your experience? Anything will help. Their relationship is getting very deep.

thanks so much.
B.

This would send up a red flag for me. Tell your friend to be careful and do not wire any money or offer to cash any checks for this person.

@tired

Can you elaborate a little on what he wanted from you?

Right now he's not asking for anything from her yet, as far as I know.
I would like to know what you think his next move would be. So far he has said that he wants her to move with him when he gets back to USA.

What do you think he will want?

How did you find out about what he was up to? When did you suspect him?

Did he ever ask you for money?

Did he ever ask you to use your webcam? Why would he not have a webcam?

Did he ask you for your family's contact information?

Did he try to blackmail you?
Did anyone warn you about him? Did you listen or did he encourage didtrust for them?
Any ideas on how I can get through to her?

thanks alot
