Here are photos of the person who scammed me through match.com. 'Her' alias was sammy19607@yahoo.com and yahoo messenger name: sammy19607. Her full alias was Samantha Wallace and like so many of the other stories her parents died in a plane crash, needs money to fly back to the US from Nigeria. I did talk to my buddy who is a lawyer and he said unless the amount is six figures the US does not really mess with the scams in Nigeria since it is so corrupt. I think we should push for match to alert people of how many love scammers are really out there waiting to sink their hooks into you.

Laurie

Message 2: Are you romantic has I am?

How are you and how is your day? and all member of your family? Thanks you for writing back, it's so nice to hear from you again. I really enjoyed your message, and like what you had to say.
I am sending you these flowers for a couple of reasons. First of all because I want them to express my seriousness and desire to build a special friendship with you that is built on understanding, communication, respect, passion, morals & values, spirituality, loyalty and unconditional love Second of all these flowers I am sending you represent everything that makes up my heart and soul, which is love, passion and romance!.

*insert picture of flowers here*

I am really going to put a lot of effort into writing this letter to you in hopes it will provide you with a good understanding of who I am, what I am all about, and what has made me the person I am today. The reason I am going to write a letter rather than just send a message is because I am serious about wanting to establish a quality friendship with you, and because of the fact I rarely contact anyone , so when I do you can be rest assured I am serious about my intentions.
In me you are going to find a woman that was blessed with an over abundance of passion to give to the ones I share my heart and soul with. For you to really know me you will have to experience me, as the love that makes up my heart is like a waterfall, where the water never stops flowing down. In this case my heart is the waterfall, and the love and passion that flows endlessly is representing the water. I am a very unique person for many reasons, but one of those is the fact that I can never get enough of romancing that special someone.
In me sweetheart you are going to find the most passionate, loving and romantic woman you have ever met. There are very few promises in life but this is one of them!. ROMANCE is the key to my happiness and to my heart and soul!. It is the single biggest reason I am single today is because I have yet to find a man who will romance me with the passion of there heart and be a giver of there love, and not just a taker. I am a woman who is very committed to the special man I am sharing my heart and soul with. I totally dedicate and devote my life totally to this person 24/7, for he is my King and it is my belief that as long as he is my King, God would want me to treat him as such, by putting him on a pedestal that is reserved only for a King and showing him with an endless amount of affection, attention, passion, and unconditional love. It is my duty as a follower of the word of God to be his provider, providing for his emotional, mental, financial, and sexual needs. It is my responsibility as his Queen to take any problems and stress that he has in his life and put it on my shoulders to free him of it, for I am a wpman and his Queen!. My shoulders are bigger so it is my obligation to carry the burdens he has in life on them, allowing him to have a healthy mind, body, and heart and soul at all times. I love and cherish this role sweetheart, and it is because I love it so much, that I feel God has a role for everyone in life, and his chosen role for me is to be a excellent wife, mother, and family woman, because of the way I live my life, and because of my passion to be a great lover and family woman, in addition to the passion I have for children. I believe children play a big part in my life.
Thank you again for allowing me to express myself and I want to end this letter on the above thoughts. I wish for my sake that my thoughts and feelings could become reality, but what I have expressed to you is very honest, sincere, and comes from the deepest depths of my heart and soul. I know this is not the type of letter you were expecting, but it is a letter expressing exactly what I am feeling at this very moment and why I am feeling what I am. I have many things I do want to learn about you and what makes up your heart and soul. I am really interested in learning about your thoughts, feelings, experiences, fantasies, and anything else you would like to share with me. My heart, my soul is all here for you even if it has to be in a friendship.
My new year resolution is to find the love of my life,i want to love and be loved back.
It was when my father had a auto car accident that i came to the state and that was few month ago.I had a great love, a man I thought I was going to marry, but he was unfaithful to me,i will tell you alot more about that when the time comes.
I am not really good in playing Golf,i will like to learn because i love the game Golf so much.
I have to make this clear to you that,i have never make use of the IM before,i dont have any instant message,kindly bear with me and try to understand that i am a new person on the dating sence.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!.
Laurie

thanks for your site can you expose this one this is their new style i have receved several of this.WATCH OUT THEY ARE CUNNING.

Hi My Dear,

Firstly I thank you for your responses to my letter En-line with my message I sent, how is life over there in your country?, I hope that you are in atmosphere of peace and love. I am very happy to read your mail today, please do not be surprise or get offended for receiving this message from me, It just that I have been obliged to lay a mere trust on you due to my situation here in the refugees camp. Having searched through the internet from where i get your email address i strongly believes in my heart that you must be honest and sincere person for me to disclose my life secrets for you to help me.

Let me first of all introduce my self to you, and I will require the best of your honesty after you knowing about me and whom that I am, I will really like us to have a good relationship in-spite of anything because I have this feeling that you will be honest and trusted person and you will not betray me.

I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here and after reading your mail today i whole-heatedly decided to let you know more and more about me, Who knows? maybe you will be my saviour, from this conditions i have found myself into. My name is Miss Marie Atata, 21yrs old from Liberia, the only daughter of Late Chief Fredrick Atata. The managing director of true capitaliste industries Ltd in Monrovia the capital city of my country years past. My late father is one of the most richest business men in my country, in anything pertaining Gold and diamonds, but he was assasinated by the rebels and the greedy fellows in my country during the war, on his way down to the village with my two younger ones.

Therefore I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I am receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father.

Meanwhile I wanted to escape from Africa to any where in the world but she hides away my international passport and other valuable travelling documents. Luckily she did not discover where I kept my father’s File which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the refugees camp where I am presently seeking asylum under the Private charity organisation for the Refugee here in Republic of Senegal. I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship that may lead us to somewhere better if we work well on it. In the camp we have a church called Christ the king church, here is telephone number of the Rev.Sister of the church in the refugees camp, 00221-773288931. Please anytime you called just tell her that you want to speak with me, so that she will send for me at the camp hostels to come and answer your call. Life here in the refugees camp is very stressful and i honestly prays to move out from here as soon as you help me.

My late father of blessed memory deposited the sum of (Nine Million Seven Hundred Thousand US Dollars) in a Bank here in Senegal with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer of the funds to your bank accounts, on my behalf. As you will help me in an investment and i will like to complete my studies in your country like i said earlier, as i was in my 1st year in the university, when the crisis started. After the transfer you will arrange for my trip joining you over there for us to share this feelings face to face. I tried all my possible best and explain my conditions here to the bank but they told me that my refugees status in senegal does not permit me to such a transactions, unless i look for someone to help me,(maybe my relatives, trusted friends or partners).

To be sincere with you, i prefer to tell my secrets to a stranger because he/she will not have a mind to cheat me or betray me, not somebody here, if people here know that i have such funds i tell you my life will be in a total danger and risky here, that is why i am disclosing this to you with all my hearts and confidence that you will keep this confidential for my safety reasons and life purposes, i sincerely want to let you know that We will invest the fund together me and you, or if you don't intend staying with me then It will be my pleasure to compensate you with 15% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.

As soon as I received your positive response showing your interest to help me, I will put things into action immediately. I will send the contacts of the bank so that you will contact them immediately for them to transfer the funds to your bank accounts, please this is a legitimate money and the bank is also aware that i am the next of kin because i have send them the documents where my late father written my name as the next of kin and they have also confirmed it and say that i should look for someone to help me facilitate the funds transfer, since i am in refugees camp. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this relationship and transaction sincerely.

I am waiting for your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self please I am on my kneels in the name of the god, do not disclose this secret to anybody till i come over to your country, once the funds has been transferred. Meanwhile i want you to call me like i said i have a lots tell you.

Attached here is my picture

Yours Sincerely,

Marie.

Hi everyone,

It looks like she's everywhere. I met 'her' through a site called friendjungle.com She uses the name Laurie Bolabas. I got the same emails as the above. She says she lives in Des Moines, Iowa. After 'more about me' and 'are you as romantic as I am' she returned my short reply with the title 'would you like to give it a go?' Apparently she couldn't wait :) I knew something was up, so I googled her name and this site comes up. Here's her latest email in entirety and the picture 'she' uses on the site.

===
Know we have not gotten to really know each other all that long, but I do really like you. You are a very special guy. There is so much about you I see that I know most girls don't see. They are all looking at you for your body. But Julian, I am telling you, that is not what I am doing. There is so much more to you than that.
You're the last thing on my mind at night after we first share intrest in each other. You fill every dream I have. You're the very first thing I think of when I wake up ... and you'll never know it.Every moment we share together I could never forget, and I am simply hanging by a that moment, waiting until the time I can see you and be held close in your arms.
I am going all out and I am going to say it all. I really care a lot about you, and I would like to be a lot more then just friends. You mean so much to me....what do you say, would you like to give it a go?
Laurie
