For the past three months I have been baiting scammer and sending him on several mini safaris He has grown tired of this as I "have been causing him great stress and pine and he got assault five time", he now wants me to send money to to someone else who he claims is his girlfriend. He sent me her name address and telephone number and after a quick search about Google I found what seems to be her Bebo page and I suspect that she has fallen for a romance scam by the same scammer I currently have hooked.

Should I give her a call and let her know that her 'boyfriend' is a scammer or should I leave her alone?

Just a question, but is it possible she's a scammer too? I'm wondering why a scammer would have you send money to his 'girlfriend'.

Is it possible he using one scam to help another? (like "I'll have my people forward you some money, then you can send me some")

Maybe if he sends her a bit of money, via scamming someone else of course, she'll be more likely to send him lots when his Budgie needs vital Kidney Surgery or whatever.

I thought that but I don't think she is. He wants me to send the money to her because he wants me to send money via Western Union, which I have been refusing to do giving him the excuse that Western Union will not send money to Nigeria. Being in the UK he gave me her details so she can transfer the money to him via bank account. Her Bebo site does look genuine and her job also matches with a woman of the same name who works in the same town with the same job, also her and address match in the BT directory.

Please contact scamwarners.com ASAP (and send them all the info you have), they know how to handle these kind of situations. Please don´t contact her yourself because she is probably in way too deep, and this type of situation is a very delicate one.

I would hope that if someone found out that I was the victim of a scammer, that somehow they would get a warning to me. Please do what they are suggesting.
