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 196.3.62.4

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.

Note:
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.

Sitting here and thinking back as to how you have made my Day... and how you are making my life so much better, I could never begin to tell you what your love means to me. You have shown me countless times how you care and how you believe in me, how you have given me the strength to give up something that has had a hold of my life for a very long time, without you I don't think I could be following my dreams, much less having someone like you standing beside me.

I will from now keep telling you how amazing you are, and Rebecca you ARE! You're an incredible woman; there is nothing I believe you can't do. The way you make me feel is like nothing I've ever felt before. I know I'm a very impatient person and I'm trying like hell to do the right thing, but the more time I spend with you and the more time we talk and do things together makes me realize that this is our life's plan, this is how our path of forever is suppose to happen, and sometimes I know it's hard for us to deal with but in the end, we'll be stronger and able to handle just about anything that comes our way ... we got thru the hard part, Babe, now all we have is the downhill side.

You have brought out a part in me that I put away a long time ago and thought I'd never be able to find again. You make everything so simple and easy for me to let go and with you in my life I don't need to hide that part of me anymore. What you make me feel for you is nothing short of the ultimate happiness. You are in my thoughts, my dreams, my desires, but most of all my heart!

You are my babygirl, my sweetheart, my Rebecca, and most of all my future wife! I love you now and always, today, tomorrow, and forever!

Love always, Brian Bartalomie

She or he is a new scammer because I cannot find her on any scammer website. She goes by Jessy Janet Warren. Email is bluejessy33@yahoo.com I wish I would have found this site earlier because I would be a whole lot richer right now. She is going for the juggler now as she was on her way to the airport to come be with me and the cab was in a wreck and she was knocked unconscious and her 3 year old daughter had a broken neck and is on life support, yeah right. Some bogus doctor contacted me thru email informing me of the accident. He said that when she was rushed into the hospital she was hollering my name, another yeah right. Now she needs an operation and this bogus Doctor has asked for money in advance. What kind of hospital asks you to pay in advance? Hospitals write off patients that cannot pay, please come on. I was so dumb early on. Even though I had some suspicions, she was so convincing. She had very convincing answers. One thing that kind of convinced me was I told her I always thought it was sexy when women had their toenails painted, especially red. She said she did not like red, but within an hour or two she sent me a picture of her and her 3 year old daughter's feet with both painted with pink polish say 'I hope you like this color my king.'they were white feet. I don't know where you can get a picture like that on someone's facebook page or myspace page, especially so quickly. Anyway, beware of her. I had no knowledge whatsoever about all these scams from Nigeria. Boy I sure do now.
