My wife of 24 years has fallen into this trap. She has given them over $5000 and I cant stop her as she uses her own credit cards. She goes to bank and gets a cash withdraw and sends via money-gram all while destroying our family.
Please just leave your wife/husband after the first time and dont think they are going to quit because they will start lying like the Nigerian scammers. BTW all we can get from her is his name is Al Kortez and he has 1.5 million awaiting him and ... yah you know the rest!
