Nigerian man scammed me for a year and a half

by Virginia Smith
(Benson, N.C.,USA)

I met a man on and he called himself Ken Shelton and claimed to work on an oil rig. Of course I knew he was lying because of his accent and his writing style. I played along for 6 months because he never asked me for money.

Finally he told me that he was Nigerian and his name was Olawale Shoremekun and he was trying to get to America on a student visa. After nearly a year and a half I decided to help him.

I paid his Sevis fee for his student visa. I opened an account with him as an authorized user and everything was fine for a while with only cash deposits then one day a huge deposit of nearly $20,000 was made and then transferred and then he disappeared from my life and the money had been stolen from someone's account.

I was heartbroken because he was my best friend and had never asked me for money, yet he waited patiently for a year and a half for the big score.

I'll never trust anyone again.

Sorry for your loss and this is what to keep writing about on this scam blog.
I keep saying do not believe any of these guys overseas because they keep stealing your heart and money.

You could be in a fraud scamm investgation and money laundering and you could lose your 💰 home car an you could go to jail.

These men are evil so find someone in your own neighborhood.

I am so sorry to hear this. Thank you so much for posting this.

Did this man have an accent? Did he call you everyday? Was he consistent in pretending his love for you? Did you send him iTunes card?

I must know. I'm talking to a man working in Nigeria. Met him on OKC. Been talking to him for 1 year and a half.
