Another dating / chat scam - USA/ Nigeria connection

Last week I got contacted via my profile on a dating web site. The person had a temporary profile only with no picture posted and sent me a one-liner including her yahoo address and she asked me to add her on the yahoo messenger.

I was bored so I fulfilled her request.

Her profile had said she was from Illinois, USA. I live in California. Once we chat on Y! messenger, she says she just left Madrid/ Spain and is in West Africa now.

Supposedly she works for a diamond company which is owned by her step dad. She lives with her daughter since her husband (or kids father, I do not recall) left her after the kid was born. Here are her photos - I am not quite sure that they are really HER photos:

She also tells me that she is on bad terms with her step dad since he asked her for sex. (If that's her real photos, I might ask her for sex also.)
During the chat she was kind of evasive, did not answer my questions but instead asked me questions herself. After about 30 minutes she said she'd have to leave West Africa soon and wants to come to the Bay Area (which is why she had written me) and whether she could stay at my place for a week or two until she had gotten herself a place.

She wanted to see photos of my house (I mailed her two).

During the following week we briefly chatted maybe 3 times. No deep conversation, this woman does not spell well, and obviously does half a dozen chats parallel.

I asked her to visit a web site that I host so that I could trap her IP number. It was

I used two different tools (web sites) to identify the location she was coming from. Most web sites reported this IP as in London, UK. One web site located it as CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI.

If you ever want to do this kind of check, grab the IP number from email headers and use a web site like on it. You need to make your email program or web client display all headers, to see the 'Originating IP'. Yahoo's email client offers this. I do not know about AOL or hotmail.

She claims to be on AOL (which I found strange, does AOL offer service in West Africa?)

Yesterday she started talking how her step-dad does not send the money he is supposed to send. A kind of allowance instead of a paycheck. Don't ask me for an explanation of this concept.

I did not like to hear her talk about bills that she cannot pay. I'm kind of allergic to this talk when I know a person from 60 minutes of chatting only :-)

Anyway, today she asked me directly to Western Union her the money, $750. As I am posting this, I am still chatting with her. A copy of today's chat is below.

Ok this one was better than most. They romance scammers used a team in Yahoo Messenger in order to obtain personal information... And then you are directed to Westerna Union to lose your money.

I turned on timestamps in order to that you can compare conversations between windows. Comments in [ ] are my comments posted after the fact.

We will start with the chat with the female scammer, then I will post the chat with her 'travel agent' who collects the Western Union and tells you not to dissapoint the girl:

brina_caroline09 is currently not in your Messenger List. [Yup she is reported and ignored]

Report as Spam (Alt+Shift+R) [Been there... done that]

brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:16:36 PM): HELLO THERE
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:16:50 PM): LOL, hello Brina

brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:17:03 PM): WHY LOL
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:17:06 PM): I AM FINE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:17:10 PM): AND YOU
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:17:48 PM): Because you are a character... And I laugh because you buzz and then caps...
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:18:07 PM): OH IC
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:19:35 PM): So besides chatting what are you up to?
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:22:45 PM): Hello, was that a hit and run?
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:23:44 PM): HOW
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:24:01 PM): Buzz me, cap me... And then go do something else
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:24:14 PM): ^^^ Hit and run [No, busy scamming others!!]
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:24:42 PM): nope
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:24:48 PM): Ok
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:25:05 PM): So I asked what you were doing today besides chatting
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:25:24 PM): Plans for this evening?
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:25:40 PM): well i just came back from Hospital
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:25:50 PM): Ooooh no good news
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:25:56 PM): What happened?
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:25:58 PM): and decided to come online for a while to talk [scam] to you for few minutes before i go back
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 4:25:59 PM): and youi
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:26:09 PM): Well thank you [I was in the mood for a scam]
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 4:26:22 PM): I think you are cute and I am glad you popped in

I cut out most of the chat to get to the bait set and scam:

brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:15:32 PM): Well i can come and jion you there if you want
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:16:01 PM): It's not my call... That is a decision you would have to think about an make
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:16:43 PM): But you are more than welcome to come visit, or stay anytime you want... You won't break too many hearts, too badly at this point
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:18:34 PM): you know i will like to know...if you can be responsible for my trip
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:18:57 PM): Financially?
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:19:18 PM): yeah
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:20:11 PM): Well let's talk about that. If you got down here, I would certainly feel obligated to cover your expenses while you were here. That you can count on without question. [She will never show up, so I can be honest]
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:20:44 PM): As far as getting here... We can discuss that.
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:21:32 PM): well go aheas
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:21:41 PM): I will grant you, it's not easy to get here.
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:22:08 PM): It's not like you can fly in and I can run to the airport in 20 minutes to pick you up
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:22:14 PM): i have a travelling agent [Here is comes!!!]
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:22:24 PM): that i will pay half of ticket money to get me there
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:22:41 PM): Where would you be coming from?
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:23:00 PM): Lousiana
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:24:13 PM): The best, easiest, most comfortable way to get here would be by train most likely. Amtrak has a station in Alpine Texas. There is at least one line, possibly two lines that make that stop
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:24:31 PM): DONT WORRY ABOUT THAT
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:24:48 PM): I HAVE A AGENT WE CAN PAY FOR TAHT HERE
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:25:40 PM): Well, it is important to discuss the means of travel because if you just assume to fly, the nearest airport is 340 miles
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:26:11 PM): Alpine is only 100 miles away
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:26:12 PM): OK GOT THAT
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:26:20 PM): K
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:26:32 PM): SO IF I GET TO AIRPORT HOW WILL YOU GET ME
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:27:27 PM): I would have to drive a full day to get there... It would be much more comfortable for you to connect with a train that stops in Alpine... And much easier for me to pick you up
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:28:05 PM): WELL AS I SAID EARLIER
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:28:07 PM): You would need to ask your travel agent to connect you to Amtrak with a line that stops in Alpine
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:28:15 PM): MY AGENT CAN GET ALL THAT DONE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:28:23 PM): ALL WE NEED DO IS PAY HIM [Western Union?]
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:28:25 PM): AND SURE
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:29:05 PM): Well, give him a call, and find out what it will cost... Would be my next advice.
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:29:34 PM): WELL HONEY ...
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:29:59 PM): But you should also think about whether or not you want to visit and for how long... Because not having met yet, we can't be sure things will work out as we would like
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:30:17 PM): I would be agreeable to that
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:30:47 PM): WELL HONEY...IF ITS ABOUT THINKING ABOUT VISITING YOU
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:30:53 PM): I AM VERY SURE I WILL
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:31:10 PM): COS I AM ON A BREAK FROM WORK FOR 3 MONTHS [How convenient!!!]
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:31:19 PM): SO I CAN BE THERE FOR 3 MONTHS
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:31:26 PM): BEFORE I COME BACK HERE
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:31:35 PM): That sounds like a plan
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:32:19 PM): Yes, I told you there is a need for home care nurses in this area
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:32:31 PM): WELL IF THATS IT
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:32:38 PM): THEN I CAN WRITE THE HOSPITAL HERE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:32:41 PM): FROM THERE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:32:53 PM): THAT I WILL LIKE TO RELOCATE FOR LOVE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:33:00 PM): AND I KNOW MY BOSS WILL UNDERSTAND
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:33:12 PM): SO THERE WILL BE NO MORE PROBLEM
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:33:32 PM): Ok, well let's investigate travel arrangements and see about the ticket costs and connections to arrive and we can go from there.
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:33:55 PM): OR WHAT ARE DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:34:09 PM): WELL HONEY I TOLD YOU ALREADY
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:34:21 PM): I would think that after 3 months we would both be sure what we want to do
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:34:28 PM): NO NEED OF THAT ..MY HOSPITAL HAVE A TRAVELLING AGENT HERE [That's convient, he's sitting right next to you?]
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:34:47 PM): THAT WILL TALK TO YOU ...AND YOU CAN ARRANGE BETTER WITH HIM
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:34:51 PM): IS THAT OK?
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:34:54 PM): Yes
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:35:01 PM): SURE
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:35:12 PM): SO AFTER TALKING TO MY TRAVELLING AGENT
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:35:59 PM): Sounds good, I can't think of a better way
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:37:11 PM): You have my email address...
brina_caroline09 (7/2/2008 5:37:23 PM): YEAH
Richard Quick (7/2/2008 5:37:35 PM): Have you agent email me, I will reply same day with destination information

This scam ran for well over an hour, and the money guy wasted 'extra time' They are gonna waste a lot more time looking for that Western Union before I am done with them. I am reporting the contact name: WALLACE MCKINZY ADRESS...3245 WINNSBORO
to the Winnsboro Police Dept.

I sent a nice email to the female scammer telling her how excited I am and given this information they should be expecting a Western Union ;)

Good luck guys, I hope the cops in Winnsboro bust the bag man at least.

^^^ Update on the scam I posted here.

I was contacted by a detective from the police department in Winnsboro, Louisanna USA a few minutes ago. He is very familar with Wallace Mckinzy and the detective wanted to talk to me about particulars.

After talking with the detective, he will be in contact with Wallace Mckinzy. The detective feels that Mr. Mckinzy can, and will be able to provide direct information leading back to the people using the Yahoo Messenger IDs: brina_caroline09 and travelling_agent05

He told me there are several Western Union offices there in Winnsboro where the pickup can take place, and because he is able to get into contact with Mr. Mckinzy directly, we have decided not to set up a pickup sting... They will simply go to his house :)

Now that's a happy ending to any scam!!!

Me too... Almost got ripped off by some guy claiming to be living in Wisconsin, but currently working on assignment in Peru. He sweet talked me, threw the love word out WAY too soon, sending up red flags everywhere. Because he was a good looking guy and such a sweet talker, I gave him the benefit of the doubt for a couple days, but then he threw out the sick sister story and that she needed $450 to medical bills, and because he was out of the country, and she was in Utah, he needed me to send the money. Yea right!
His screen name is, Goes by the name of Marcus Bruchis.
Beware.. He is a smooth talker! Just to cover my behind, I have put a security freeze on my credit. I have also reported him (them) to the FTC.
He kept proclaiming his LOVE for me and begged that I trust him. I told him to prove to me that he is real by sending different pictures, web cam, phone call, etc. Finally, after I quit chatting with him, I did receive a phone call about 24 hours later and the number came from Nigeria!

You were a pretty big idiot but don't feel bad we were all taken once, Learn from your mistake and dont send anyone else money. There are ways to help and when real help is offered a scammer will try for the money telling you that is the only way, Then you know the truth

She contacted me on the webite,So be aware guys...

I wanted to believe in her,But with I have read on this website,The whole thing went down just like what I read including the change of flight schedules and the needing to pay of the 'BTA' fee so she could get her plane ticket..

Don't give up hope, just don't send money, I've learned there are many web sites to check on your 'girl' 90% are fake but out of the million's that leaves 10's of thousands of good honest women, I'll find one and you can too just be careful
