Ok here's the back story, my sister has been divorced for about two years now and since then has been on the hunt for love. She recently started talking to this man on a chat site whose name claims to be Kelvin Coleman. He told her that he has three kids and lives about two hours away from us. He told my sister that his wife died while giving birth to there son. After a few years he told her that he was doing some designing over in London. After a few weeks there he said that a job opening had came up to help design a art school in Nigera, Africa. Just recently he asked my sister who he has only been talking to for a month to help him handle $4200. A man that he was doing business with deposited $4200 into a bank account that my sister was told to open by this Kelvin Coleman. She was then told to take $100 for herself and to western union the rest of the money back to him. Ive been doing alot of research about these scammers and alot of people have said that even though she is able to pull the money out that doesnt mean the check is good. I dont want my sister to get hurt but I know that she woud just fly off the handle if I told her what I have been suspecting. She really thinks that this guy is the one and I just want to get some answers. PLEASE HELP I NEED ALL THE ADVICE I CAN GET!!!!!!!!

Since it is her name on the account, SHE will be liable for any money that is taken from that account . . . and when the wire transfer comes back as counterfeit she will owe the bank the money. She might think she is in love, but is that "love" worth thousands of dollars?
