April 8, 2010

I never known about internet (love/date) scamming before, that is why I was scammed by that man.
After the first message, came the 2nd.
We kept in contact by emails, YMs, and also phone calls.

Kevin said that he wanted to come to my country by the end of May 2010, but then he went to Abuja, Nigeria to take his consigment. It's worth 7.5 million GBP. Before he went, he asked me for help 400 GBP to complete the flight ticket and allowance to Nigeria.

I lost 100 GBP to an address:

Kevin gave me the phone number +447045703890.
He said that it was a landline but I had never tried to contact it.

When he was in the last process for releasing the consignment, he asked for another 300 USD, but then asked 500 USD. So foolish i was.
I lost another 500 USD to another address (a security company officer):

Actually, I had been searching from the internet that many things he said didn't match, but I put my trust in him.
Once I contacted the security company (GoldLink Security Company).
The admin told me that the consignment was in their depository.
The admin named:
James K.Cooper
Administrative Assistant
Gold Link Finance & Security Company
Accra, Ghana
"[email protected]" <[email protected]>

The admin also suggested a barrister named:
Barrister Tony Donkor.
Legalink Accra, Ghana
(Full-Service Law Firm) Via Goldlink Finance & Security Co.
Email: [email protected]
Phone: +233 24 8281051
I never did any contact with this guy.

Kevin said the money was used for getting Anti-Terrorist Certificate, Drug Clearance Certificate, and The Authorization Letter.

The best part of it, I was asked to fill a UN Delivery form which was containing my bank account number, the bank code, my address, my signature, and the scanned of my passport. Whew...

Kevin asked another 500 USD for Money Laundering Certificate.
I had no money so I didn't send anything.
He mentioned a UN diplomat for delivery the consignment to my doorstep,

The General sent email to me for confirming that the consignment was ready for delivery.
Below are the email address and the office address:
UNITED NATIONS <[email protected]>

Foreign Settlement Centre, United Nations House
Plot 617/618, Diplomatic Zone,Central Area District,
P.M.B. 2851, Garki, Abuja, Nigeria.
Telephone: +2348067330822

As the last step, Kevin asked 8000 USD to buy the flight tickets for him and the diplomat with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
Well, it was a big amount for me.
In this case, I did my best effort to raise the money he asked.
I did put application for a loan at a Credit Union.
I do have the money on my hand to send him 5000 USD (the highest amount I promised to send).
Thank God, at the night before I was supposed to send the money, I finally found the site discussed his name, as a scammer.

Well, it was the best story in my life. The excellent lesson to learn. An expensive English Course I ever had. Laughing
I hope this can prevent another people from scamming and become the victioms.

Oh my goodness, I am so glad you didn't send him the $5000.

Please plz plz go to its our sister site and its to warn others of scammers. They are so great at what they do and offer special attention to victims.

Do you have any of his emails? I see they all seem to use Gmail in this scam, but by chance did he ever email you from yahoo or another email account?

Please click this link ----> Such a great group and great at what they do.


Edit to say~ I am so glad you searched online before you sent the rest of the money and by you posting this information maybe it will help others. Just please don't tell him you posted his info because he might change his name or email address, use his same scam and scam others.

And yet another Edit~ Please drop this person. Don't email, text, talk or chat with him online anymore. He will try try TRY to get you to talk to him. DON'T do it!! If I were you I would change all my passwords and if you did by chance give him your banking info then CLOSE that account today if possible. When you go to scamwarners there is lots of info there for victims. You will find out that you are not alone in this, it happens everyday to many different people (including my mom).

Welcome here sinka wangi.

Strawberryshortcake gave you some good advice. If you could post some of the emails the scammer has send, and some photo's on scamwarners, then it will warn others.

I agree with what Strawberry said.

Well done for sussing this guy out and well done for warning others.

How did you send the money to the UK address?
