I just found out that this story had been posted in another part of the Eater forums.
Mon Mar 16, 1:59 pm ET
A Nigerian undergraduate has been sentenced to 19 years in
prison for obtaining $47,000 (33,382 pounds) from an Australian woman by
convincing her over the Internet that he was 57 years old, white, and madly in
love with her.
Lawal Adekunle Nurudeen met his victim on the Internet in 2007 and convinced her
that he was a British widower called Benson Lawson. He said he was an engineer
working in Lagos whose wife and only child had been killed in a car accident .
"The victim, a 56-year-old woman from Australia , told the convict that she
wanted a husband and all the men she had met always disappointed her", said the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nigeria's anti-corruption
She would also receive the proceeds of the sale of his land and car.
