My friend met someone on Zoosk who says his name is Eric she will not tell me his last name. She has talked with him now for over a year. He has been working on some oil rig on some island below Nigeria he has been there for over a year, Actually when she first started talking to him he said he was in scotland on an oil rig then had to fly to this oil rig in these islands by Nigeria. He keeps coming up with all kinds of stories of why he is stuck there and now is telling her he is just waiting for monies to be transfered into his account but now he has to get some kind of paper work otherwise the nigerian company cannot transfer his payment of 500,000.00 into his bank account here in the U.S. He is telling her he wants her to meet him in Scotland because he has to fly back there again for another payment. He says he lives in California and has a 9 year old son who is being taken care of by a nanny. Wife died of cancedr and parents died in car accident. He says he has a business that works on oil rigs but he has no eb site and says he is on face book but no pic or any info. I know she has told him that she is expecting a large settlement from workers comp. I am petrified!! She is on the phone telling him I love you calling him Baby she has never met this guy!! She tells me he would not stand her up if she goes to Scotland to meet him. He does call her and she says he has a valid cell phone number PLEASE HELP I AM REALLY AFRAID IF SHE DOES GO TO SCOTLAND TO "MEET" HIM I MAY NOT SEE MY FRIEND AGAIN.

What she has been sent is a standard love scam. I've had slight variations on this, including a "Soldier" who was supposed to be right here in Melbourne. Oddly enough, the IP addresses traced back to Nigeria.

I had a lad on 4ppl claim to be from Scotland, but when I asked if a particular town was near where he claimed to live he told they were "VERY far away". I was born in Scotland, and the towns I mentioned are five miles apart as the crow flies.

While there is a possibility that your lad has contacts in Scotland, I think it's more likely he's just saying that to get his payday and if she was to travel to Scotland, Lad wouldn't be there on her arrival.
