Nigerian Scammer.....Beware of David Parr
(Benton, Arkansas, USA)
I was approached by a man on Datehookup that went by txdavid22. He claimed residence in Irving Tx. Self employed engineer. His profile was well written and the photos were of a very nice looking man, one of which had his daughter in.
He contacted me on the site and, like others, asked to start conversing thru yahoo messenger. We communicated over yahoo messenger for weeks, he sent me beautiful emails also, claiming to have fallen in love with me, etc.
Yes, I fell for it. He seems like a dream come true. Then, hell started.
He lost his wallet while working in London that had all of his credit cards in it that he used for travelling. He had no money to get his daughter and him food. Yes, I sent him money. Long story short, he continued to "run into trouble" getting back home and needed money time after time. I fell for it and sent him more money.
Then, he hit me with a phony inheritance that he needed me to be beneficiary on so that the funds could get transferred to an account in my name in the states. I started investigating the lawyer that sent an email to me who supposedly was representing him and couldn't find the laywer on internet anywhere.
I just recently told him to f---k off, but just so sorry that I didn't tell him that sooner, before sending him my hard earned money. I feel weird because I know that the photos of who I thought I was communicating with where of some innocent man and not who was telling me all those beautiful things and it hurts terribly.
