PAUL RAYMOND, (AKA CLEMENT CROWFFORD) ON-LINE DATING SCAMMER. I am writing this on behalf of my friend, who engaged with this man on-line for approximately 8 months. He identified himself as Paul Raymond, a business man from Miami, Florida. He was a former attorney from Kansas, a West-point graduate (sick) and currently working in sales of mineral testing equipment internationally. He of course, in time, was required to travel to Nigeria on a business trip. Just prior to his departure...he was detained by the Nigerian Government and of course, he informed my friend, that he had a large bank account in Canada, but could not access his funds.....As the business for which he came to Nigeria to transact busniness with, did not pay him promptly, his testing kit, materials and his person would be detained until he was able to produce money to pay for 'taxes) He was frightened for his life, asked my friend to provide him with plane fare...(I sent my friend the notice about Paul Raymond from this site-(thanks by the way for whomever posted on this site) My friend could not believe Paul Raymond might be a scammer.
It was not until my friend agreed to contact Paul Raymond's business partner in the 'US on his behalf, in order to assist him by sending him funds via, through my friend's bank account.' The funds were substantial. I becamed even more alarmed and concerned for my friend. Researched the WEB once more. This site provided pictures of Paul Raymond-I sent the pictures of Paul Raymond to her. She identified Mr. Raymond-by the very pictures from this site (he sent the same pictures to her.) Mr. Raymond is currently on MATCH.COM. THE AUTHORITIES HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED and are currenly working with my friend.
PLEASE CONTACT THE FBI, if you have been contacted or are currently engaged with an online interactions with this person. HELP TO STOP SCAMMERS!
