Watch out for 'Susan' from Bowie, MD.
I've been ignoring all the people who write with a Russian or Nigerian email address. But this one I wrote because she went through the trouble of filling out all the 'match' info details on yahoo, plus I never ran across a scammer that knew about Bowie, MD.

First email she said she was on vacation in Spain and would be home soon so I said write back after you get home and I'll take you out. A month later she writes and says she wants to get some importing business done with Africa before coming home, so I say 'okay, write me again after you get home.'. And now on the 4th email I get this....

'Hi there,
Am doing good here but i've a little difficulties that i would want you to assist me with. I know it's very strange but i don't think it's a big deal cuz i know that i can trust you. I've been trying to get some money here to offset some bills but the bank wouldn't cash my money orders for me.
I would want you to assist me with that back in the states, I'll send you the money orders then you'll cash them there and wire the money back to me. You might not understand things clearly but i'll answer all your questions when you reply, bye for now.

Classic fake money order or cashier's check scam known as the 'Nigerian Scam'. I suspect she's in Nigeria since she mentioned Africa.

I too got a similar email which i believe to be a scam. the woman claiming to susan williwams wrote this. this is copy and pasted:My name is susan williams.i am a young lady,vibrant and i had a positive view for my future not until i lost my parents.my family use to have a small jewelry store which i took up after the death of my parents.its really a medium-sized place.i am in charge of the place and this makes me to have limited time for offers from guys who try to have me.i was kinda too busy and this made me never had time to love anyone like my lost parents.my business was going fast and the number of my customers was growing.i specialise in the sales of diamonds,silver,beads and antiques.its really fun and challenging for a lady like me to take such biz.The growing numbers of my customers made my place bigger cos i had to get new and in vogue stuffs...dunno if you know what i mean.Due to the nature of my business i have been opportuned to travel across the globe and this has taken me to canada,china and uk(london).
My predicament started when a client of mine told me there was some antiques in africa,she also told me there were very cheap diamonds too.this made me thought deep of travelling there to get some and also see the beauty of the wildlife i do see in movies and documentaries.i was thinking of meeting new people there too.so i embarked on the journey to the place that held me back from coming back home.When i got to africa,i went to a country called Nigeria.it was my first time of going there.the only mistake i made was that i never had an accomplice or bodyguard.i think life was same as back home.i planned to be there for a week.so on my arrival,i lodged in a hotel.i was so tired and decided to rest that day.the following morning,i woke up to do a market survey about the stuffs am buying.i found a store that has what i needed,it was majorly beads.so i decided to come back the next morning to get'em.that morning,when i woke up,i boarded a taxi to take me to the store where am gonna buy.unknown to me,the cabman is an armed robber,so i hopped into the car.when we drove some kilometers away,it was in a calm area with alot of bush and less people,we saw a guy,waving at the taxi.i told the guy not to stop but he said he knew the guy.he said he was his freind and the guy told us he had a flat tyre.i saw a car parked and since he was going our way,i told the cabman to allow him into the car.so we were going when the cabman pulled over and told me his car his faulty.before i know it ,they brought out guns and threatened to shoot me if i didnt coperate.they robbed me of all my money.i was beaten badly that i cant walk.i wa crying there when a man now helped me to a nearby hospital.the man promised to come back the following day but till this moment h never show up.i was left all alone with my fate.i had no money on me and i decided the hospital decided to take my travelling papers from me,so that i wont run away after they have treated me.this is how i ended up been here in africa.so now i dont know how to pay the bills and i dont know how to get back to the states.i have a return ticket back home to the states but my travelling papers wont be released until i pay what i am owing the hospital.baby i never really wanna share this with you but i believe our meeting is for a purpose ordainded by God.i wouldnt have had the chance to meet you if i never came here.i believe its for our getting together if you could help me get back to the states.Now i want you to help me with the hospital bills so that my papers can be given back to me by the hospital.baby am gonna ask you for another favour,can i put up with you when i get back to the states.thanks for taking time to read this.but i must tell you its my real story and it came from my heart.i just hope this wont scare you off me.anyway if you think you can help me...then please get back to me.if you think you can help me,send me a mail to spicysussy222@yahoo.com
yours forever,
Susan

Now this was written after sending one email to her through an online dating site. In the letter she mentions nigeria specifically and requests money and the to come live with me after I help her pay for her bills so that she can get out of nigeria.

I think that I have been scammed. The story seems to sound identical to most of these. Is there any way to get back at these people.

I just had a run in with Susan Williams as well..She lives in Pittsburgh and is working USAID supporting their HIV/AIDS research. She contacted me on Chemistry.Com. She told me that she was from the UK and that her parents died in a tragic car accident. I asked to meet her and the following day she was leaving for an aid trip to Africa. We chatted while she was gone and then all of a sudden i receive a message from that she is very upset and that her and her crew were robbed at gunpoint. They took everything. She couldn't pay her hotel bill (the Sunflag Hotel & Suites) doesnt exist anywhere online. She asked me to send her money so she could fly home immediately. She said she only bought a one way ticket. I kept asking questions and she would get more angry that I don't trust her. She gave me her address in Pittsburgh and of course you can't find any information on it. I asked if I could call her house in Pittsburgh and hear her voice to confirm she is real..Wouldn't know..disconnected. She went from loving me to hating me within 3 lines of a chat. She uses the yahoo address creamycuddler@yahoo.com and sweetiepiecake on Chemistry.com. They are pretty good at this scam.
