I got scammed by this guy from myspace with the name kehinde i sent him $240.00 for luggage fees i was so blind,now i'm into a lot of debt due to phone calls and what i wired out to this bastard i hope you can see the pic that he is using of this guy in a white t-shirt and doo-rag with a baseball cap,when we were supposed to meet up at JFK i was stranded and heart broken now i know.

When he didn't show up at the airport he had his lawyer send this letter (it is fake I know):

Dear Miss,


It is with superlative sense of respect and total humilty that am writing you this mail with the hope you will reply back .

Am Barrister Erika from United Kingdom who is presently attending to Ken Martins case at the International Airport,Heathrow UK.

I got your tel no and email contact from Ken Martins of America Origin. His Flight details/itinerary shows he is going to New York,USA.But he is presently having 2 major problems at the transit hall here in Heathrow ,United kingdom as he got his ticket stolen at the transit hall and he was identified to have carried another passengers bag which contains some gold.

I have been assigned as a young Barrister of British training to help him on his situation.And I have confirmed that he mistakenly took the wrong bag of another person which contains some gold.

His case is a small one though.He should be released tomorrow as i have realised that it was a wrong bag he took.I just hope the case will be a light one as i expected.

He has asked me to help him in communicating with you of his situation.And i hope he continues in his travelling tomorrow to your place as he hoped.though we will need to have a new ticket for him to New York via British airways.

I will be visiting him again in the next 3hours to see his situation and speak to other colleagues in the field of his situation.He is only disturbed and crying calling your name and when you where calling i saw your name on his phone but i could not pick it up then it is with the immgration officer.

I will be expecting your mail.and i hope to speak to you tomorrow when he is released.

Best regards,
Barrister Erika Freeman

Thanks for your email and i will like you to know that it will be nice to let you know that Mr ken martins has some little problem at the transit airport i mean at uk aiport which they have think he his trying to take someone elles bag which they are roung of this but i try to conviews them still yet they dont belive so we need to keep praying and i will try and do my best becuase i know this handsome guy is innocent of all i try to see that he has a bag that look like his own which is not but still the uk government dont still believe him well i have a message from him to you when i see him today he was crying and calling your name and he said pls make sure you did'nt stop loving him because his innocent of all the aligation they have said against him so try and make sure you don't leave him here alone so that they wont be sending him to jail for what his innocent for .

He did give me this number of 234(803)941-3023 he checks his myspace account everyday I believe he is using, or ken martins.When we started talking he told me his fiance was deaf and she died in a car accident and he was looking for a serious relationship he also said he would help pay my school fee bill so that i could finish school and he would marry me he said he was in Spain and he didn't have any money and he wanted to send his mother in Nigeria something because he couldn't talk to her when he didn't have anything to give her.

This predator got me good he told me to open up a bank account for his company to pay the staff workers and when he comes to the states he will get his check from me and his boss will call the people and tell them to cash the checks i send out that was supposed to be March 31,2007. I have the names and addresses of these people and I dont know if they were scammed or part of it but the checks i sent out bounced I did close the account and the bank told me i would not have to pay the fees but i'm still fighting this and i have to do more research and file a police report.One thing I am still worried about is if he stole my pic and information and scamming others with it or getting a check for over some thousand dollars but i will not cash because i was really looking for the guy in the pic to love me but i'm crushed to find out It's a Nigerian who could slit my throat in an instant.

This is his myspace:


And pics he uses

Are you always this sweet? Okay, I may be a little too pushy, but I know what I like and go for it. I think we can be a good match,Impressing what i describe your profile as ..a near
perfect description of what i desire in a woman ,even your picture goes a long way in describing the quint essential underlying beauty any man would seek for in a woman , it would only be fair that I told you more about me though. I'm a single Dad with a 7 yr Old son,name is Allen, after being in a long term relationship for the past three and a half years. I'm over it and ready to date again. I'd like to meet a lady who will breathe fresh air into my life. I like women who are honest, intelligent and who enjoy taking chances , I'm adventurous and need a partner in crime! I'm good-looking and in shape. I love reading books, going to the movies and drinking coffee. I have many other hobbies, we can discuss them if you respond...

Now don't get me wrong I'm a very fun person and can make fun of any situation.Baby you got all the Qualities i am looking and all I need in a woman.

Willing to share your last penny to save your partners life in a dying situation.True love, an Emotion so strong that you would give up everything. To just feel it once, to know that you are part of something special. To know that you can feel what love really is; to know, to feel, to love.'To love someone is to understand each other, to laugh together, to smile with your heart and to trust one another. One important thing is to let each other go if you can't do this.'True love is a covenant that we build on a strong foundation'. It is with true love as it is with ghosts; everyone talks about it, but few have seen it. I promise to make my One and Only the most happiest Woman on earth if only she's willing to accept me as a part of her life.I will be there whenever she needs me and promise never to do anything to hurt her feelings. I will love her just the way She is, being blind, disable, deaf or dumb or whatever category that she might falls in.What I have known and believed all this while is that Death can not stop true love, it can only delay it for a little while.I'm ever willing to do anything to have my true love forever and sail to the end of the sea with her.I promised to be the man of her dreams because Im not going to let her down, I will assure her my whole heart. The way things are going ,I can't tell if that special person is YOU but why don't you write me and let's find out what happens ,Who knows what God has for us.I think this is all i can say about me and what i'm looking for in my partner, but if you feels there's more you want to know about me,please you're more than welcome to ask any Question.Hope to hear from you real soon.Lots of Love.

This guy 'befriended' me on myspace. He was going by James Richard from New York, but had relocated to Africa to sell his art work. He needed money to get back home to New York. Said his parents had died years ago and was raised by his Grandmother. Man, he was so believable until he asked me to send him money.
