Name: Edmund Johnson Lawson
Other Comments: This guy contacted me on a dating website (Cherry Blossom). He claimed that he is an engineer from UK, and that he currently has a contract to build a bridge in Nigeria. We've been talking to each other via email and chat (no camera, just pictures) for almost 2 months. About a week or two of knowing each other, he confessed his love to me, and I was so stupid to believe that. He gained my love and trust. But last week, something happened. He told me that he was robbed by Nigerian people and they took all his money and documents. He is asking for help so that he can get out of country and get his money in UK and then come back to Nigeria to finish his project. He told me that he needs my help. He wanted to send him money so that he can buy plane ticket and that everything will be back to normal. He even told me that if I love him I will help him. By that time I started to smell that something is not right. I asked him to show himself on the camera so that I can verify him. He made excuses of why he cannot do that. Instead, he emailed me a scanned passport. He thought that the passport will convince me...he thought wrong. I did my research, found out that there is a romance scam out there, found many red flags. I found out that the passport he sent me is not real, and that everything he told me is not real. Although he got nothing from me, I just want to share my experience and let people know that the scammer is using this innocent person's photos and/or information. He will try to make you fall in love with him, make you think that he is a perfect guy for you, gain your trust, and later on gets your money and leave you heartbroken.
Thank you for your scam report,it is indeed an nigerian scammer you have met ,the passport is fake as the birth of date do not match.Please send the copy of the passport to police as it is stolen from someone innocent.I am glad you did your home work as it saved you from to get scammed financially.I know these scammers are very convincing and knows how to manipulate people.Please post his first mail and the asking for money letter as it is good to have for further researchers online and warn other women from this scammer.
All kind regards //Miss Marple//
