He contacted me out of the blue and claimed to be an engineer on an oil rig in the North Sea. His language was just not quite on point for an English speaker.
He claimed to live in Manchester, UK, and had a 14 year-old son in military boarding school. He fell in love with me at first sight and wanted to spend Christmas with me any where in the world of my choosing. He would not accept a voice over internet call claiming that the network was bad.
He hadn't asked me for money yet, but I think that was probably the next step.
