I've been Nigerian dating scammed once but never twice

I actually found this profile on match .com I was new to the site, only on 2 days.
He said was a widow living in BC. After 10 days of chatting , on yahoo, I was asked to remove my profile and he would too, as he had found the woman of his dreams.
He then went to Africa to finish up a project, sending me flowers before he left.
He phoned 2 to 3 times a day from Africa singing 'when a man loved a woman'.
Then came the call aznd could I send him $1500 to pay the hotel as the banking system was down. I did but I had my doubts, but thought If I picked him, it must be ok.
A week later he finished the project. Then he shared all the info, expenses and so on, and then said he needed $20,000 to pay the auditors before he could get paid for the job, which was 10 million.
YES, I sent it.
A week later he needed $10,000 to pay the black mailers before the certificate was released, but would settle for $6,500. I then caught on and said no.
He still asked me to pay for a ticket so he could return to BC. The address I was given in BC does not belong to him.
He was a god fearing honest man. The name he used JONE WHITE.. ladies he is a smooth talking scammer.
I have since learnt that 75% of men on match .com are scammers and will pick the new profiles.
