Lagos Nigerian Scam - Eric Moore
I was on facebook and got a friend request. The name seemed familiar, I was thinking a old highschool friend, wrong,
I accepted the friend request and no sooner as I accepted the guy sends me a message asking how I have been. We get to talking and after a couple of weeks, he tells me he is getting really attached to me. I was flattered.
After a little while longer, he is telling me he loves me and for some reason I keep thinking how can you love someone this fast. He then asked me if I could love him, I told him maybe.
He claims to have a 4 year old son, and he is adorable. Eric said he is looking for a God fearing woman and has found that in me. Things start moving fast, he is tellign me about his late dad and that he was divorced 4 years ago and his ex-wife died from Lung cancer last year.
Then about 2 weeks ago we are chatting and he said a country his dad use to go to and did contract work for called him and said they owed him 20 million in back pay. I am thinking yeah right, but giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Eric proceeds to tell me he is going for me and I tell him don't do that, only do for him and his son. So he leaves on a Monday morning to go to Lagos Nigeria. He contacts me on Tuesday and then again on wednesday.
Well on Wednesday he proceeds to tell me he hit a snag and they are saying his dad owes 2500.00 in back taxes and he only has a $1000.00 on him and can I help him get the rest. A big red flag on my part. I told him I don't have it as I have a family to support.
Watch out for this guy.
He is really secretive, didn't want to tell me who he worked for and come to find out what he did tell me was a lie.
At the end I was thinking he was a dream come true, but I had my nagging little voice. Always listen to that voice.
