I haven't responded yet because my alarm bells went off straight away. But I told him I didn't have it and he asked if I could send him a credit card.Why would an orthopaedic surgeon be contacting me so far away. I told him my situation and it was impossible and why would he be asking me for help when you're a doctor. He told me because of being in the UK Bank of America closed his account and he doesn't have access to it.
If he asks you to file for vacation time and tell them you were his fiancé, don't do it as it will cost you money and it all goes to his pocket. So this man sent me a couple of DM's on Twitter before I finally responded.
If you need to request time off he himself can do so without any money coming out of your pocket. He was clearly trying to charm me, sending me a video of that titanic song and stuff. This man claims he is a doctor with the UN in Afghanistan. Plans on retiring when he is done in 15 months, and opening a hospital.
Since he didn't ask me for money yet, I don't 100% know it's a scam, but it seems very, very fishy (especially since there are a couple of similar profiles with a variation of the name). I've gotten friend requests from these guys on Facebook since my status changed to widowed a couple of years ago. Most of these military love seekers are scammers just looking to hook you and get your money. They know that women who are widowed are vulnerable and they want to take advantage. He sent pictures of an extremely handsome man which I believed was him. From the moment he charmed me, I decided to scam the Nigerian back, I knew it was a scam cause it happened to my friend. Asked me for payment to a lawyer for an immigration documanet to move out from danger area and buy an air ticket through money gram.
They are easy to tell on Facebook (few photo's, no postings, friends, ect). Like others have said, if it's too good to be true, it is! I immediately searched Google and there was his name... ITS ENOUGH THAT THEY BRING DRUGS INTO THIS COUNTRY FOR OUR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE!! NOW THEY WANT TO SCAM THE MOTHERS AND STEAL THEIR MONEY. YOU DONT DESERVE THESE SCAMS JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE HUNGRY FOR LOVE AND ATTENTION!! The lawyers name is Cindy who lives in Texas Fortworth.
