Sounds like the typical West African scammer. Young Black man conning you! He repeats himself too many times about 'he is the only Son i have'.

What's his first language? If it's English and he is an 'engineer', then his spelling is not good enough to pass an exam in Oz.

He also tried to do the same with me... First, I believed him. He used to talk about God, good things, his work and life. Then he started calling me, 'my beloved wife'... lol... In one of his e-mails he called me Jennifer, and it's not my name. When he felt I was in love, he started telling about his incredible stories about himself, his son, his business, and his unbelieveable problems, I realized he was a big lier. He called me many times, trying to make me send him money. Then, I noticed his accent wasn't American (He told me he was born in Atlanta a lived in England with his grandparents because his parents died in a car accident... A terrible life history). I'm not fool at all! Last week, a woman from England, I think, e-mailed me asking how well I knew Brian Cole... I told her everything I could. Then, a couple of days he called me on Yahoo Messenger and started talking the same old stories, like he loved me, I was his wife, I left him and his son Arnold alone in that dangerous place (it means, Nigeria), etc, etc, etc... So, I told him a woman asked me questions about him. I also told him Interpol is looking for him. I felt he got concerned about it... He got crazy and stooped chatting. Anyway, I think Brian is so many people. I mean, I think a group of Nigerian do it. For me, he sent the first pictures on this page, as well as the little boy´s picture who he calls Arnold... Well, I keep all the e-mails he sent, just in case. Here one of them:
hello love,
I love you so much and would want to believe that you know that...
I would love to tell you that you are like my worst possession though i never really had you, you were really out to destroy my life with your lies...
The same you told me that your son was sick and that you would still send the money if you have the address of the bank. Now i did all that i can, i had sleepless nights to get the addresses that i sent to you and all that you would pay me back with is turning your back obn me and telling me to my face that you have too many problems just cause your son is having fever and would not be able to help me put my life back on track.
I chose to believe you at first when you told me that you would send me the money and latter you came up with stories that you have been told by some friends and then you now made me cry and weep like a baby... i did all i could to show you that i am real just cause i loved you so much and would not want to loose you also because you are the only one that i see being able to help me out now... but all that yopu can help m,e with is tell me that you would help and then latter tell me that you are not going to do it again for reasons that i consider frivolous... just know that my God is the onlyn one that i have now, i am leaving far away from home with all my life at the prot with out being cleared...
It is sure at this point that even if a miracle happens and you decide to help me i would be recording a lose of about 200450dollars on those goods just because of 500dollars.. This whole thing is like a miracle to me and i really can not fantom why all this is happening to me now. Even when my heart tells me that your lies have allways been from thw start i chose not to believe, i gave my heart to you and you broke it, even though you had promised that you would always be there for me, whats happening now JO? Where do you put all the sweet things and promises you always made to me? You swear to me that our love is for better for worst, why are you telling me to go and die now that i am having this problem? Does it mean that those good times mean nothing to you anymore?
Baby, all i need now is for you to prove to me what you really are. What i mean to you.
I have not been able to call you because the guy whose phone i have been using got robbed and his phone was stolen.
I would try risking calling you from a pay phone to let you hear my voice and cause i would like to hear your voice of deciet.
Even after all this, I LOVE YOU STILL. YOU ROCK MY WORLD.
With a broken heart from,
Brian Cole.

P.S. Arnold is so dissappointed in you and he cant hide it that he once asked me- 'does Mom still love you?' Why then does a lover watch her love cry?' Would you like to make me cry?'
Inqusitive child, i just keep telling him- 'God would make her help us someday, 'cos she still loves us too'
To me i feel i am lieing to the poor boy, but soon i would have no choice but let him know how things are.

First, he sent me of the man in white shirt. Some months later, he sent me the photo of the man in swimsuit and of the boy who he called Arnold... In our first conversations, he asked me about my job, if I had my own house, things like that. After a couple of months, he told me a terrible story about his business and, of course, asked me money. In that moment, I realized he was fake and I stopped chatting. but he called me all the time. Then, I said I had an American policeman friend in Nigeria and I would ask my friend to help him. And he said he didn't want any help from a person he didn't know... Well, he just wanted my money!
Here one of his e-mail:
Hello Sweet heart,
I am sorry about our sick son. I just want you to know that everything would be alright, he is going to be okay. I prayed for him yesterday with Arnold and also this morning when we woke up. I want you to know that he would be okay soon.
Please tell me that i wish him quick recovery in Jesus' name.

Well, Ladies, this Brian Cole also scams by the name Jamie Grant, from Norfolk, Virginia, self-employed construction project manager, stranded in Copehagen, Denmark because he was paid by check instead of cash. It's true that hundreds of scammers use the same scripts but once you read enough actual scammer IMs, emails, etc. you can easily identify the scammer(s) you were dealing with. And the following came from my scammer, who called himself, Jamie Grant:

hello love,
I love you so much and would want to believe that you know that...
I would love to tell you that you are like my worst possession though i never really had you, you were really out to destroy my life with your lies...

It's as if I'm reading an IM from Jamie. Just names, place, situation changed. Jamie always asked me why 'we' should lose $3.7 mil because I won't send him $1,500 to pay the hotel manager. Jamie was paying someone to use a laptop (instead of a telephone). Jamie claimed to have 2 kids but used his daughter most to try and manipulate me. When I would tell him to stop contacting me he would say 'omg, what am I going to tell my kids'. His 'daughter' would IM me and call me Mom and plead with me not to hurt her Dad. He cried a lot. He always called me 'my love', 'sweetie' 'dear' 'baby' 'my wife', 'Mrs. Grant', 'my sweet love', etc.

Jamie used God all the time, he was to come home back to the States to marry me and build a church that we would pastor together, he would ALWAYS turn the tables and put the blame on me proclaiming undying love for me, that he would show up at my door just to prove he was real. Always wanting me to prove myself, my love for him. LOL, when it should have always been the other way around.

Here is an email I received from Jamie when I tried to break it off with him 1 week after we 'met' (the scam lasted another 5 weeks and I lost $3,000):

so you ask me to go away from you , see if you ask me for all the details am gonna provide you as well..but if you want me to go away is all you want its ok by me ..but i need to let you know this that am gonna show up to prove myself to you...you sound like you never trust me.. you fail your believe in God..dont tell me this is God want but its your own want because of lil problem i have you ran away from me....so even when we are married you can never bear anything with me..Now i understand your point...hey i must show up there and surprise you and also bring that 100 bulk you send to the orphanage to you ...its good that you doubt me early ..I know the Lord will be with me and i will rather stay single for the rest of my life because i thought i have found a woman of God but she never has the strong believe as she said she does , omg what do i tell my kids ..well let me tell you this [my name removed], i dont need your fucking money ..you love is all i need and your believe in God but now you prove yyourself to me as a woman that can bear lil problem with a man....Glory be to God .this will never change my believe in God ....i will really surprise you am gonna show up there and by God grace i will find somewhere to build my own church close to the area you live so that each time you get to see me your mind will always ask you what you have done to hurt me..well thanks for asking me to go away from you ..May the Lord be with you and bless you abudantly, But i need to tell you this , i am writing this with a big tear coming from my eye ..YOU WILL NEVER FIND A MAN THAT WILL CARE FOR YOU AS I DO..Only Christ bear the witness that i care but you never understand..i will never tell you to go or goodbye because God dont want us to say that..I thought you know alot about the will of God i never expect you to say goodbye but you do...life goes on ..God say we human being flow like river and we can meet somewhere someday so never say Goodbye to anymore but i am ok with what you say ....i love you and i care about you

May the Lord be with you always

Take good care of yourself and have a wonderful day at work and please dont stress yourself much at work because the lord will always guide you through

I LOVE YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

Jamie


Jamie found me on MySpace but I've have him removed (at least his Jamie Grant profile is gone). My research shows he is Jamie G on tagged.com.
