Hi. My name is Jason Taylor and I am new to this site.
anyhow I recently got a message from this woman on myspace. http://www.myspace.com/540860787
Who was basically looking to meet a man. Except She wanted me to go straight to Yahoo to chat to her. Giving me her email of lindaonlyone4u@yahoo.com. At first I felt like I had found my Soulmate, even though I wasn't really looking. Then after acouple of chat sessions she asked me if I could help her out by sending her around $300 for food and for her internet connection. She said she was living in California, but originally from the U.K. Currently in Nigeria where she had spent all her mone on stock and was waiting for the red tape to be sorted so she could leave for California. She claims to be self employed and trading in gold,silver, handbags and so forth.
This is a recent email discussion.

Hi. Sorry I hadn't replied. I wasn't allowed to use the comupter at work to send the online funds transfer. I don't work in the office. I work in the main warehouse.

In fact when I copied this and showed this to one of my co-workers. He told Me that it looked very much like a scam and that I was an idiot if I sent You the money a few others agree with him too. So now I'm not so sure what to beleive.

Hi Jason,
Thank you so much.I will have it given back to you when i get back to California.The best way to send it is through western union store since you don't have a credit card to send it online.The bpay will take time,remember i told you i don't have any cash on me to feed myself and i don't want my internet to get disconnected.I know it might be kinda hard for you to have it send at western union store since you will be at work by then,but i just want you to try.The hotel manager will help me to get it,western union store is far from where i am,so i don't have any cash on me to get a taxi down there,the hotel manager will assist me to do it.I trust him,he's an honest man.His name is Mr samuel.Here is the information below to send the money to.

Name--Samuel Abiodun
City--Agege
State--Lagos
Zipcode---23401
Country---Nigeria

Text question---who is it for
Answer---------Linda

When you are done sending it,you will have to get back to me with the sender information,so that i can get it here.You will have to get back to me with your full name,address,city,state,zipcode and mtcn(10 digit)
Thank you so much Jason.I will be expecting your respond back toon.Have a good night

Linda


My instincts tell me it's a scam. But the most recent email has kinda thrown me a bit.

Yep thats pretty much the message I got on Myspace. I'm glad I found out before I sent any money. I actualy told her I wasn't allowed to use the work computer to send anymoney and that a coworker called me a moron, telling me it's a scam. As I wasn't 100% sure. She sent a reply saying that she wasn't like that at all and as I predicted she turned on the water works. This made me confused, but thanks to the above post. Things are cleared up.

I'm guessing She was "worried" that I'd turn my back on her. But with me it's not as simple as that. Because I will be exposing this everywhere now.

They always turn on the water works/sob story when you call them out as a scammer . . . they are trying to suck you back in.

And I am guessing that "she" is really a "he" . . . most of these scammers are men using fake profiles.

I thought that was the case. I also figured it was a so-called "Man" using a fake profile. If thats the case. The woman who's pic is being used is just as much of a victim. I feel sorry for the Women and the Men whos images and possibley identitys are being used to create these fake profiles.

You are right . . . many people's identities/online profiles are used in this manner, and it does make that person a victim of this entire thing. That is why I try to remember to tell people that just because you find a real person with the same name or picture, you may not have found your scammer . . . that real person's profile/picture could have been used and they had no idea it was even going on.
