Name: Jessica Adam
Other Comments: This scammer proports to be a Nigerian citizen whose father had died when she was a young girl and her mother lives in Wyoming, USA. She states that she is a Director of a hotel in Abuja, Nigeria and visits her mother whenever she can get leave. As evidence of her 'good faith' she produced three documents, although NOT all the documents that I requested she produce. However, she did manage to unknowingly produce enough documentation to prove that she is a scammer. I will not disclose what in the documents prove that she is a scammer, I wil leave that to those who enjoy playing 'Find Waldo'. However, there are errors in every document, although very subtle on the passport unless you compare it against another US passport. One error on a particular document is so obvious that I could not help but laugh out loud.
Her motis operendi is the following.
(1) loves you and wants to visit you for at least 2 weeks within the first 2 emails.
(2) states that she will pay for her ticket, but then comes back and says that she can only pay for part of the ticket because it is so expensive. She then asks for you to pay a substantial portion.
(3) if you do pay for part of her ticket, she then comes back and says that her travel agent told her that she is required to bring $1500 with her for Basic Traveling Allowance as per Nigerian law. (Despite the fact that each time she is asked to produce her visa, she produces a US passport. Now, you might ask yourself how a US citizen is required by Nigerian law to carry any amount of money to go back to their own country.)
(4) tells you that she needs money to get her medical tests that is required to be shown by all people leaving Africa.
i would also point out that when she is confronted with the thought that this might be a scam. She states how hurt she is that she should be thought of as a scammer...had no idea what a scammer was....cannot love someone who doesn't trust her..etc.
Also, although she states that she had lived with her mother in the US until recently, her grammar and spelling is so horrible that it goes far, far beyond simply typos. If true, then she would not have passed the 3rd grade. (Ahemm...another hint. Carefully read the language on the supposed official Nigerian document.)

Good evening, I was talking to this same woman for some time. However I was aware that Nigeria has a lot of scams. She had told me her mother was deceased and that she lived with her father who was an elder at Winners chapel and who that pastor was and that they were associated with the Assembly of God. I emailed the corporate office of the Assemblies and the missionary who heads up all work done there for the last 27 yrs said that this church was not under the Assemblies. I had a feeling from the beginning she was a fake. I also contacted the local FBI who said they do not have jurisdiction in Nigeria. Its good to see someone putting this information on the web.
How are you today? Hope all is well with you and your family? I hope this mail meets you in a perfect condition. I am using this opportunity to thank you for your great effort to our unfinished transfer of fund into your account due to one reason or the other best known to you.
But I want to inform you that I have successfully transferred the Cheque out of the company to someone else who was capable of assisting me in this great venture Due to your effort, sincerity, courage and trust worthiness you showed at the course of the transaction I want to compensate you and show my gratitude to you with the sum $250,000.00 (two hundred Fifty thousand united states Dollars)in addition to your lottery winnings of $500 thousand now amounting to $750,000.00(seven hundred and fifty thousand United States Dollars).
My dear friend I will like you to contact the finance house for the collection of this international certified bank draft. The name and contact address of the Person with your Cheque is Mr. Alfred Morris, is as follows.
At the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which myself and my new partner are having at hand. Finally, remember that I have forwarded instruction to the finance house on your behalf to send the bank draft to you as soon as you contact them without delay. Please I will like you to accept this token with good faith as this is from the bottom of my heart.
Thanks and God bless you and your family. Hope to hear from you soon.
My sincere advice to you as a christian is that you should endeavour to pay your tithe to a bible believing church when you get the prize.

N:B So sorry for have contacted you for so long it was due to the fact that i was responding to medical treatment i went for surgery and ever since I came back I couldn't locate you until i finally made it. That was why I am contacting you back to inform you that I finally made it as a result of this I had to compensate you with this offer.

I don't know if this is the same chick as 'Jessica Adam' or 'Samantha Wallace', but I am suspicious of this babe. I'm an idiot, a lonely idiot, who got taken by one 'Nelli Sergeeva' for $500 before i had the brains to do a search on her. An expensive lesson, but one well-learned. So I am trying to find out about this one who calls herself 'Criss Darling'. All the messages are similar to things posted on this site (thank you all for supplying this information, by the way!): things like 'I will love you forever', 'we are meant to be together', etc.
