i have been talking to a 25 year old girl that found me an my myspace account. she says her name is Logan Smith, email address firstname.lastname@example.org, born and lives in Albuquerque New Mexico (says its a 6 bedroom house located on Marbourough which she inherited after both parents passed away), but just finished school in Nigeria for fashion designing. smith claims her birthday is 8/3/84. smith seemed like a very nice girl at first then started throwing up some signs. for one, she got attached very quickly (its even to the point now that she says she loves me). two, she does really ask many questions about what i'm like and seems to be ok with all the bad things about myself that i tell her about me. three, she did ask for money. smith claims that she has a money order that nobody will let her cash where she's at, so she can't get a plane ticket to come home. she wanted me to send her $300 so she would have enough for the ticket. i thought that didnt seem like enough to cover the ticket but assumed she had the rest. i never sent that because i don't have that much. we continued emailing and instant messengering for a couple weeks, almost everyday. finally i told her to sign the money order over to me and mail it to me and i'll cash it for you and western union it back to you right away. she agreed to this but said that she didn't have enough money to send it out here, that it would cost about $100 to mail it, and asked if i could at least help her with that. it thought that seemed like a lot just to mail a piece of paper, so i looked it up with 'ups', 'fed-ex' and another delivery service, all estimated a cost of over $100. i was suprized but i agreed to send her $50, she said she could come up with the rest. so about a week ago i did western union her $58. yesterday she said she tried to mail the money order but the price was $78. she then asked me for another $20, and also threw in that the manager of the hotel wanted to shut off her internet unless he got $30 for that. so now she is asking for another $50 and was hoping i could send more than that. now i'm extremely suspicious. mind you, i do have training in interrogation, and have asked her a lot of questions because i didn't trust her from the begining but she has been very persuasive. almost everything she has told me i can confirm, ie: mailing expense, street named marbourough. we are on line together everyday nearly (how does she have that much time to spend on me and only be getting $50 from me). other weird things though, she erased her myspace account, she wanted me to western union the money to a girl named Daniella Wilson (who according to western union is the one who did in fact pick up the money), plus the address she gave me to send the money to (10 Clem Rd Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria 23401) hasn't been found on any scam web sites i've found but the address is very close to others i did find. please tell me what you think. i have included photos (she also claims that they are professionally done because she does a little bit of modeling).
