Lagos Nigeria .. claims to be from Denison Tx


Other Comments:
This one I met through a dating/social site called Tagged.com . he is Michael C on that site . He professed his love in his 3rd email to me . and then proceeded to tell me how sad and worried he was , because his tractor broke down and he did not have the money to fix it , and could not work without it . he pleaded for me to send him $500 to fix the shock absorbers . I suggested a few things he could do to solve this without me sending him money , at which point he got upset at me . He claims to be from Denison Texas , of Polish decent , and having lived in both Poland and the UK , and currently living in Lagos Nigeria for work . He claims to have 2 boys 6 and 7 , and divorced for 3 years from his wife , because she cheated on him with his best friend . His email address he is using is michael_b0v2@yahoo.com. I traced his IP address and he is sending emails from Lagos Nigeria . He also has a profile on facebook , under the name of Michael Curry from Denison Tx . He has no friends listed on either his facebook account or his Tagged account ... which made me suspicious to begin with .
I google the first sentence of the email he sent me below , and the first paragraph and some of the other text was copied directly from a website called lovingyou.com .
He says all the right things to you to try to romance you .. but he is a scammer .


Never could I have asked the Lord for anything more assuring or hypnotizing than the soothing tone of your chat and the words lingering off them. You made my days sunny even though the nights rained on endlessly.We completed one another; you thought that no good man existed and then you met me. How I long for you to know that the feeling is mutual, that I have never met a woman that can read though me and explore my inner core. Please keep in mind that I will not take your heart, that I hold, for granted. I will replace it with mine, so you know I wouldn't be able to breathe without it.Soul mates do exist and now I have learned that there is beauty behind all imperfections. It took us both years of hurt and pain and it has paid off. It's true when they say, 'God makes you meet a few wrong people, before you meet the right one, so you will be able to appreciate and understand their worth.'

Every time I see you, I think I'm out of control. I do not know why I am feeling this way, but it's like nothing I've ever experienced before. I'd like to touch your pic to see if it's real. How could I not notice until now that your face in the pic could launch a thousand ships? I'd like you to know that I love you so much, more than I love myself. So even if we are not meant to be together I just want to stay with you, 'til the moment I render forever, and ever. 'Cause maybe you're going to be the one that's saved me, after all you're my wonder wall.I'm writing to let you know how I feel about you. I don't know how to tell you through mail , so I am going to put my feelings in words, on this page. Since the day I met you, I haven't been the same. My feelings I just can't seem to tame. I am starting to care for you in a different way. I think of you every day! I love everything about you! Your smile, your eyes, your hair, your body , etc... I am pretty sure you got the point. I can't get you off my mind, baby, you got me feeling stupid, because I know you may not feel the same, but my feelings just keep growing each and every day. Well, what I am trying to tell you is I am SPRUNG, and I am falling in love with you - yes, this is true! But I understand if you don't feel the same. baby, I know this sounds lame, but I have to let you know how I really feel. And this is no lie, I am for real.

It has not been but a short time of getting to know one another and we are totally crazy about the other. I asked you if you believed in soul mates and you said that you believed that God does make a special someone from every man. Whether that man finds that someone he was created for or not, I know I was created for you. Here I am, heart and soul, confessing to the world how I feel about you. I would walk to the ends of the earth to meet you, and yet the funny thing is, looks as if I will have to do that since we haven't yet met. Funny how love works in people's lives. I sure never expected to neither meet nor find someone as amazing as you. You have touched my heart in so many ways and words couldn't even begin to explain to you the love I feel for you. Without further making it harder on the two of us to be together, I need to tell you that I love you and I am here waiting and when the time is right, will accept you as my husband and spend forever and eternity in your arms. Dreaming of you always ... I love you.

You are the only one who can make me happy with your love and affection. Since I have met you, I have noticed that life is worth living. I live mine for you. You have stolen me from me. Alone I can be lost. So, do not let the distance between us become larger. The further you will go from me, the more I will love you. A heart truly in love never loses hope but always believes in the promise of love, no matter how long the time and how far the distance. There are so many ways I want to tell you that I really love you, my sweetheart.... My feelings for you are true and pure ... like a virgin. I have tried lots of times to confess but you are always acting deaf to what I say. Remember one thing ... I love you and I will always love you. Loving you is something I love to do.

I don't really know how I can express my feelings to you because I wasn't myself the first time I set my eyes on you. I have seen and met great beauties, I have also learnt how I gaze at them but for once, and with you only, I lost control of it.I believe through this epistle you will understand me. I want to take you as a flower in my hand with which I'm charged with for responsibility to look ever after and to keep fresh. Next to you is like being next to paradise.I will so much appreciate it if you are mine and mine only.I always thought that dreams were just dreams, but you made them all come true and even better, you built new dreams with me! I can not thank you enough for being more than perfect because you showed me that even all the things that seem wrong are actually opportunities to work at them together and bring us closer together. No matter how far you are and no matter what you do, I always want you to know how much you mean to me, and how much I truly love you and how much I will always be yours forever. When my sky turns grey and the thunder starts to roll and it seems as if tomorrow will never come, I turn to you. The look in your eye in your pic, the touch of your hands, the sound tha come up when i chat with you ... it's all I need to brighten my day and blow the rainy clouds away. You are my angel from above, sent to me ... why? I do not know, but what I do know is that I don't deserve it. when I look into your eyes, feel your gentle touch, it sends chills up my spine sending me into an ecstasy beyond explanation.baby, you can only imagine what it's like when you kiss down my body, working your tongue the way you do.
It's amazing how you knock me off my feet; every time you get around me I get weak. You fulfill my every fantasy, baby. Its amazing how you don't even know how much you drive me wild.Dream Maker, make my dreams come true tonight. If I close my eyes will you hold me tight, all night? Will you be here by my side when my nights are cold and lonely? Will you put your love on me which I crave so deeply? I can not imagine my life without you. You are everything inside of me that I wish I could be and so much more. I look at my life before I knew your love, and I don't know how I ever survived.
But, as I said before, you are my angel, my miracle. I never knew that someone like you was out there, just waiting for me to find them. Well, I found you, baby, and now that I have you, I'm never letting you go!baby, just confide in me your deepest feelings, tell me your fantasies and they shall be fulfilled. I will do anything it takes to make you happy because that is the only thing that matters to me anymore. You are perfect in my eyes, and there is absolutely nothing that I would ever change about you. I know that no one is perfect, but baby, in my eyes you are. It leaves me amazed yet blessed to have found someone as special as you so soon.
Baby, I'm going to be sitting here waiting; waiting for the day I will see you ..l. A little distance between us is going to drive me crazy, but it'll all work out just fine. So, I will just be waiting till the day we will be together.
Thanks
Michael

update : I am continuing to talk to thi guy abd trying to get as much information from him as possible .
He has told me since i put up the original information that he is an engineer , and building a bridge , for which he will get paid 1 million dollars .
I told him i have a friend who sells tractors and to let me know the make and model of the tractor and he will send all the parts he needs to fix hi tractor .
The address he gave me to send them to is : 70 Mainman road City::ikeja State::lagos Country::Nigeria Zipcode::23401.
He has since told me that the engineer for the job ( He already told me he was the engineer ) , told him that he would not be able to receive the parts there , because of security .
Once he told me this , he went right back to when can i send him the money that he needs His latest comments are that he cannot work now , until the tractor gets fixed ( but he has mentioned that he has at least 2 other tractors on site that apparently work ) .. and now he has no money to feed his kids . I have given him a viable solution for every problem he comes up with , but he just says it cannot be done . . and can i send him the money . He needs it NOW .
The amount he needs went from $500 to now $550 . .. even though he claims before he came to Nogeria ( a week ago ) , he sold his house in Denison Texas ( guess he could not use that money ? )
So I told him , sell your computer .. which he claims now is not his , but the hotel manager's . LOL ..
Right now , I have him hanging on waiting on a reply to a message I sent to a friend I have that owns a tractor company ( doesn't exist) , and friends from church trying to get money together for him ( which is also not happening ) . I think I will send him on a run around Nigeria to a company that sells tractor parts ( I googled and found one in Lagos , where he says he is ) , and when he has gone a couple of days with that , I will have him running to Wetern Union a few times .
He apparently seems to have forgotten my name .. because every sentence , he is calling me Baby at least once . His Tagged.com account has been deleted . he claims he deleted it because he knows he wants no other woman , because he is so in love with me . ( LOL we have barely been talking for a week !! ) .But it could be because I reported him to Tagged as a scammer . Even after I sent him an email that he has been reported to the FBI as a scammer , he continues to talk to me , and profess his love for me .

Picture Number #1 is now being used by someone called Rafal Lewis, email rawisal@yahoo.com. I do not know how to get the IP address. I googled the letter & found you.
Last letter exact wording of the above letter. Picture matches.
