I was contacted by at least 8 "men" within a month's time. Immediately falling in love with my photo (Which was an immediate red flag). Most of them lost their wife in an accident - have one child who longs for the dad to marry and give them a mother. Half went into the Need Money spiel within two weeks.
Some waited about a month. This last one waited maybe two months - now suddenly equipment is busted and he needs about $100,000 dollars to repair it. They all except two work offshore - allegedly. This last guy has about $25,000,000 in a bank in California. Since he is offshore and his daughter is only 12, I am the only person he can trust to transfer the money so he can pay his debt.
I have been playing along - knowing eventually that a scenario like this would arise. I can give whatever info I have on this one and a few of the others.
They selected the wrong victim - I do not give money that I had to work for to anyone! And there is no way a millionaire is going to give a stranger his bank info and ask her to make a transfer (but dont tell anyone). Even had his "daughter" call and ask me to help dad.
One guy needed money for his dying mother. Three needed money for offshore equipment - but all are engineers and can "feed a country" with all the money they make.
