James Palermino

This man broke my heart and ruined my life. It's the same exact story as everyone who's posted to this site, except this time I walked right into a nightmare.


1. He's in the military and can't send pictures of himself on an iPhone because its forbidden on the base being special ops and everything. Cos ya know their supposed to be secret - I believed this cos I'm convinced I watch too much tv.

2. He has a daughter Mary around the same age as my kid who lives with James' mom. Cos ya know, he's deployed in.... yep, Nigeria - Since I have a kid, I felt empathy. It really tugged on my heart strings.

3. Wife died from cancer - My sister died from cancer so I could relate. It hurts typing this out btw. This story will make all you ladies feel better cos I got scammed.

James said I had to pay $500 or his commander would cut off our communication because we need to be on a secure line. So I paid.

James said I had to register as his wife which cost $500. So I paid.

James said he would invest in my business. He also said he's going to retire from the military but he needs me to pay a penalty fee to release him at $3k. He has no access to his bank account so I had to do it. He said if I paid his Commander John Blake then he would release James. And when he gets home, he will invest in my business.

So I went out looking for space, created a website, got all my ducks in order I sent him the money. But then all of a sudden, he lands in Germany and I need to send him money so he could get a ticket from Germany to LA. Since he was no longer deployed he couldn't take the military air craft he needed $2K to get home. I said I'll buy you a ticket and he said I had to give the money to his commander to get him home as everything goes to him.

4. He would laugh at my jokes. I should've took that as a sign right there.

So if it makes you feel any better, I lost $4k and my business. All because this man made me feel good about myself and I believed him.

We were internet dating for 1 year. He kept my mind off my divorce I was going through. I didn't want my kid to see a man in my house. So internet dating was perfect for me. He would call me everyday how much me he loves me. Tells me how pretty I am. Tells me he wants to treat me like a queen. Tells me he will get me a Range Rover and a diamond ring. And when he would get home, we could all live as a happy family.

He fooled me and I have no money. I have no job. And soon, I'll have no phone and no home.

Beware of this man and his Nigerian accent.
