I too was scammed (well almost) This guy was posing as a Canadian Airforce pilot who was retiring. Had to go to africa on business and got stranded. Never came right out and asked for money, but hinted until I offered (just to see what would happen) Sure enough this is the conversation we had quote carl richardson: will you send the 800 right now so i can pay one more night?
carl richardson: if you can send it now
carl richardson: you will do it through the phone
myself: How can I do it through the phone. I think I have to go right into a Western Union store
carl richardson: are you there??
carl richardson: can you help right now
carl richardson: so i can give you the number?
myself: Can I ask you one question first?
carl richardson: okask
myself: If all I have to do is call Western Union and transfer the money. Why can't you do it and transfer you own money?
carl richardson: you can't send from africa
carl richardson: ask when you call
carl richardson: see i left no stone unturned
carl richardson: you know i mentioned this briefly
carl richardson: yesterday
carl richardson: but i didn't say much
carl richardson: so what do you want to do?
myself: I will send it, but I need to sleep for a couple of hours first. send me all the information in a email
carl richardson: Judi
carl richardson: now
myself: How did you pay for the other nights. You told me the room was $500 per night
myself: You know, I have a bad feeling about this. something just doesn't jive. If it is legit, I apologize and if not sending it to you means we are over, then you really didn't love me
myself: I am signing out now
