Name: Monica Lawrence


Nigeria by way of US

Other Comments:
This scammer is a bit different then the usual scammer. She is trying to smuggle something into the country.

She starts out by saying that she is in Nigeria due to her father's failing health. Then, she falls in love after 2 chats.

But, instead of asking for money for passport/visa/air fare to come see me like the other scammers, she said that she would like to come see me within a few days. Then, she starts to plan the trip.

So, a person could almost believe the person is real at this point in time. After stating when she is coming here, she brings up minor detail associated with her dying father's business. She wants to ship some merchandise to me for holding until she arrives here.

So, I asked her what it was and she said 'cocoa'. I told her that I did not have storage for large amount of the cocoa beans. She said it was the size of a brief case and worth over $5000.

The red flag goes up at this point in time. A brief case of cocoa beans is not worth $5000. The beans are shipped in a bag. And, if it is the size of a briefcase and valuable, she should just bring it with her when she comes.

After I declined to get involved with her shipment, she was chatting with another American in another state [she supposedly lives in my area]. So, it was obvious that the most important thing was finding someone to accept the package.

Of course, there would be no trace to her on the package delivery in case customs catches it. The only name [and subsequent arrestee] would be the person receiving it.

I met this chick on We have recently moved our exchanges off the website and into personal email. She hasn't asked me to do anything for her yet, but she doesn't know I'm on to her. She also sent me one different picture. Thankfully this site popped up when I did a run on her email address. Her english is TERRIBLE!!! Since she doesn't know I'm onto her, do you think I should get in contact with the authorities and be of assistance?
