There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. One guy, when I asked what he did for a living, he said I sell metal canned food. He is an African man who lived n LA but was doing "business" n Australia..If this happens to you, please report it at ftc.gov/complaint — click on Scams and Rip-Offs, then select Romance Scams. Even at time if connecting I tried to do research in him but hit a brick wall.has a Facebook(I don't) but there is more of story and yes I totally understand how u feel but wanted to say u r not alone.ur head up,don't do ANYTHING u don't feel comfortable n doing Hi Ladies: I'm so sorry for your pain. If you notice only one pic or this person escalates his emotions quickly - even before meeting! True love comes from meeting the person face to face, learning about each other in broad daylight - not over the internet!!He claim to be a 47 years old widow who wife died from skin cancer.He is in Africa for a business trip to buy gold to resell in the U. I did not send him the money and call him out on it and he change it up by saying I don't need your money 2 days ago he was robbed so he lost everything so he wanted me to get him my credit card so that he can come back to me lol.

What if they came clean with you it started As a scam using someone else's page but then told you the truth never asked you for a dime added you on there real page with there real friends tells you to becareful because of the many dating scams and told you were he's really from but I started the hole thing first he wasn't asking for anything but friendship but I feel so connected to him he tells me the truth that he lives in Nigeria and we video chat he calls me and we stay up all night chatting I did send some money but not bc he asked then he felt bad for taking it But I was the one that told him i loved him first and that was after only a few days but I feel I've known him my hole life.Please report this to the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.
I am not sure if I should send him the 0, as I do feel terrible if he is unemployed under the conditions in Nigeria. he is asking for call card, and when i tell him i will barrow credit card from my friend he told me no..
My guy said he loves me and continues to say it, but I am not there yet and I've told him how I feel about saying "I love you".
My guy has hinted that he needs 0 to rent a store where he can continue as a barber.
When I refuse to give him my credit card he block me on Facebook lol. I know of a couple of women he scammed and he sent me a bad check and the bank told me it was a fake check. I'm not sure if he's a scammer but I'm so invested in this it kills me.
And when we video chat I see his hole face and it's not dark or in the shadows.
