I want to tell you about a type of scum-of-the-earth I have encountered. I have learned that this is a huge problem, estimated at reeling in an astounding billion per year from American, Canadian, European, and Australian victims. The Nigerian scammer, regardless of his or her nationality, ethnicity, or physical location, has no remorse, no guilt, about any of this. We were men and women who happen to have the qualities of being open, compassionate, loving, and trusted those who we loved and we believed loved us.They will send you the Money Orders or checks and ask you to deposit them into your bank account and then wire the money to them via Western Union.Usually they say to keep some money for your trouble.Note too, that although this has the name "Nigerian Scam", people perpetrating it are not necessarily in Nigeria. Or, they may be in western Europe, or the US or Canada. Other romance scams originated in Romania or Russia. In all fairness to the majority of people in or from Nigeria, the plurality of people in that country are decent, law-abiding citizens.In no way is this construed to be a general dislike for any group of people anywhere. This scam continues because a) People don't suspect, and assume that cashier's checks and money orders are "as good as cash".
These are some of the phone numbers and a facebook id they operate with. Google ‘Thomas Mario‘ and ‘07061134468‘, and more recently ‘ 2348170414696‘.Not the using, not the theft, not causing an innocent person to go to jail...Heck, mine even knew enough to try GASLIGHTING for gods' sake!That's something used by the very unscrupulous to try to convince the person they're using/abusing is "crazy".The person you may feel you "fell in love" with simply does not exist.
