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 188.8.131.52
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 www.ip2location.com 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.

I have been the ultimate sucker folks. I can tell you exactly what to watch out for because I have bit on so much of the stories of three 'ladies' in on the Nigerian Scams . Want to know anything just write me and I will be glad to tell you what experience has taught me. I have to find a way to pay back my mistakes and donations are appreciated, but unlike the scams not required. I met first one called Ismalia480 who later changed her ID and I will tell you that if you write. Second I met Tussy_Linda who says she was a princes and showed herself on a web cam many times. Third was Lilly Becky from Kansas who went for a model job and didn't have her PTA or BTA to leave Nigeria. I have pictures and stories I am willing to share so let me know and I will check that ID daily to see if you need my help to learn what I learned from this mess. Two years I have been in contact with them. Never found any real money returned to me but lots of mistakes on my part to lose the thousands of dollars they desperately needed.

Can anyone tell me how to do that please so i can report her if need be. Here is added coversation about her telling me about her fathers account, which at the time she gave a web address for the bank with numbers to login (hmmm) anyway the site cam up and i put the number in for login (strange they were all numbers) and then a screen came up with account info (basically just figures) the site only had good links to wetern union and something else i cant remember. but now i try to pull up the site and nothings comes up at all. www.colegreencommunitybank.com And nothing on google about it.steve_inco (12/5/2006 1:04:11 AM): im talkin to my mom

The reply to what i sent next was This:
How are you doing today,hope all is well with you overthere?
It's my pleasrue to meet you.I have a short story which will express more about me,so feel relax and read....
Its nice meeting you on yahoo chat,its really full of fun and happiness.
Well i will really love to know if truly you care and want a real realationship from me base on the true story of my life that i will like to tell you now.
These are my short real life story,i have to tell you concerning what i've went through in my lifetime....
I am a citizen of the United States of America,my mum was from Hartland in VA,Usa and my dad was from Nigeria which is one of the West African Countries.I am 25yrs and the only child of my parents.
Dear Love,it's been stressful life i've been living for the past 7 years,it started immediately after the death of my father who was a military man there in Nigeria,he had an accident which later lead to his sudden death which also leads to my mother's stroke here in VA.
After some months at the hospital,the doctors detected that she my mum was also suffering from a cancer disease and a heart problem,this stress was too much for me and my mum,there was no one to run to for financial assistance,so after some weeks,mum died.
Immediately after the death of my parents,i went to a friend house to stay with her but i got a strange treat from her boy friend who wanted to rape me but when i complained to my friend,she said i should find a place to spend my rest boring life,this sentence was so disappointing from a friend.
So i decided to find a job in a phone store at least to work as a sales gurl,so when i got there,i was asked to write an application form but at the end of it all,i was asked to provide to them a diploma certificate in any course but i couldn't get that for them because i couldn't continue with my education after the death of my father.
So one morning,i went out of my friend's house,i was sitting under a rose flower tree meditating on my misfortunes,a man of 32years walked to me,he felt pity for me because i was weeping so badly,so he asked few questions from me and i explained things to him,he proposed to me and since i don't have a date and i need a man to take good care of me and who will also makes me happy,so i agreed and accpted his proposals.
So we started this relationship on a solid background,i trust him,i love him and i promised him all life.
One day,i got a letter from my friend whom i packed out of her house,when i looked at the letter,it was send from one of my father's friend saying he owes my father $15,000 US Dollars,and he was needing a bank account to transfer the funds to,as a real gurl,i explained to my date and he said he knows what to do.He called that my father's friend and he said he will write him and provide to him the bank account details which he did some weeks later without notifying me.When i later found out that the money has been transfered into his account,i went to him and asked,so he apologise for his wrong doing and immediately i accepted his apology as a true love but after that he has done some other things which has really put me into suspecting him.
On the 1st of March,2006,he told me that by the end of that month,we will be moving to United Kingdom(UK) to continue our relationship and investing the $15,000 USD on a small business there in UK,i agreed with him.
We went to Uk a week after the notice,when we got to uk,we stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks then we moved to an apartment which he booked.
When we got to uk,things changed,he do whatever he likes with my money,go to party with his friends but i couldn't do anything to him because i dont want to loose him because he loves me but i dont know why he is spending the money extravagantly.
One sunday morning,i asked him to take me to his parents,he said he father was no more but his mum was in Nigeria,so we decided to come in May,2006.
On the 24th of May,2006 we flew into Nigeria airport but we arrived at a hotel with rest of my money $7,500 cash and another $1,000usd cash with me which i kept in one of my bags.
On the 3rd night in the hotel,he brought in a wine which i didnt know that it was alcoholic,we both drank the wine but within 5 minutes i could't get myself because i was drunk but he my date was having a bad intention,he wanted me drunk so that he could go away with my lugagges full of clothes,shoes,pants and expensive earings and neck-laces which my mum gave to me before her death.
To cut the story short,he i was told by one of the hotel workers that my date went away with another lady with some lugagges and he droped a letter.I thought his new location will be written in the letter but when i read the letter,it was a sad one which nearly killed me.
Below was what he wrote in the letter:
'Hi Marria,i am very sorry for the stress you've went through,its true that you love me but when we both came to nigeria,i went to my mother's house and i met my wife and kids.
It was true that i didn't informed you that i was married with kids,am very sorry for this and i want you to forgive me for all i have been doing.
This message was a shock to me because i couldnt believe that he could do this to me.But the major problem here is that he didnt pay the hotel fees and some other necessary expenses he was supposed to pay to the hotel manager before he left.
So the hotel management has called on the police here to interfere,i have been told to find all means to pay the total money for the hotel fees which cost £400 & internet service £100 making a total of £500 which i have to pay before i am charged to court.
The only opportuniy i was given by the hotel management was that he gave me free internet service so that i could use their internet....
I will be waiting to hear from you.Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible before i am disgraced here.
Could some one advise me if this is scam lol

I keep getting E-Mails from people tring to get me to send them money for money I have won, Or so they can do buisness in the us with my account. And I even once got a friend request on MySpace from a person who had a great picture, from NY vacationing in africa and both her parents were killed in a car accadent, wanted me to send her money via wester union so she could get home or to my house to stay with me, I told her to go to the us embasy where if she were a us citizen would help her to get home @ no charge. never heard from her again.
But more importantly, Western Union, and Money Gram should increase there security transaction, such as being able to track exactly where the money is picked up, who picks it up, when it is picked up, ect...
And our government should have agents there ready to pick up these people before they can pick up any money!!!!
that would stop alot of these scams, and save alot of money...
Alot of these scams have been proven to fun different terrist groups...
you would think that the government would want to stop these people!!!
But did anyone watch the scam on 60 minutes about a year ago?
it was cool, they got pics of the different scamers, several of them in canada, followed them to there place of buisness and everything it was cool....
for everyones knowledge, most of the scammers do use public hot spots, that is why they will usually have different ip all the time, and that way they can not be traced so easly, also the use voip and throw away cell phones.. hope to stop these guys one day....
thanki you, John

Its not just 1 or 2 people doing its a whole ring.Lets see i've heard everything from My mom just died-'im worth 24 million dollars' but because im a woman i can't collect the land-even got letters from the lawyers asking for 2100.00 for documents including her so called american passport thru the email.The best one was hey 'im flying in tomorrow'-called the airport ticket was valid.Day later recieved an email my agent just had a stroke need cash asap-i'll send a check.Check was counterfeit......Guess her agent is dead.....Another one is 'hey i got my plane ticket but because im not an american citizen i have to pay a BTA to immigration supposedly refundable to you on arrival'.I should post about 15 emails on here.
