Name: Mex Mathews aka Jacob



Other Comments:
I have come to believe that this profile
and this profile
are the same person and that they are a scammer.

The email address which I have
been talking to 'Jacob' on has been flagged on scammers
blacklist & in
yahoo messenger & 'Jacob' tells me that 'his' name is Mex

He tells me he was born & raised in London but moved with
his mum to Nigeria when his dad died in a car accident 6
years ago. He told me that his dad left him a large
inheritance which he will get once he is married (this rung
alarm bells for me!) & he has been pushing along the line of
wanting to marry me & move to Australia & will use the
money to 'buy us a house to live in'. He has only sent me 3
photos which are all professional shots... no 'happy snaps'.

Another email address he has sent me a photo through
was 'Janet Hopewells' - which
he says is his 'mothers' account.

I have contacted all of the people who left profile comments
on 'Jacob's' page as they are all since deleted from his
friends list... both pages seem to only have 1 actual 'friend'
in their friends list at a time.
fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=188384117 has replied
me & confirms she believes he is a scam. 'He' told her he
was originally from the USA & they chatted on yahoo for ages
& then he tried to get her to send him money 'for a visit
home to the states'.

After this email... MySpace deleted the 'Jacob' profile... but the 'Mex' one is still active.
