Hello, Ladies please beware of Nigerian fake romance and itunes card fraud scammer "Levine Shaffer". He may also be going by the name of "Jim Kennedy Blackwell" in chat rooms and on dating sites. He will give you the sob story that while he was on a private mission in Afghanistan that his wife cheated on him with his best friend and that he is looking for a new wife and a mom for his young daughter Kennedy.
He will also ask you to open up a bank account so that he can deposit money in it to help support you and your kids. He will also tell you that he is in Lagos Nigeria and works as a private agent for the CIA, has no food and lives in a motel. He will also ask you to get him iTunes Cards in specific amounts of money.
He might also ask you to wire him money via western union and wire back to him to many different receivers who are money laundering and wiring criminals. He also might have money wired to you to pick up for him claiming his agency sent you to wire back to him to many different receivers.
There use to be a man on Facebook by the name of "Jim Kennedy Blackwell" who had pics of Levine Shaffer and his young daughter Kennedy on his profile. He asked numerous women on facebook to marry him and open up a bank account so that he could deposit money in it to help support them and their kids.
I have every reason to be believe that he was my fake Nigerian romance scammer Levine Shaffer. When I questioned him about it he got really vulgar with me and asked me if I was accusing him of being a scammer and flat out told me not to mention the name Jim Kennedy Blackwell to him ever again. He gave his own self away about 3 months ago by letting it slip out he deleted the account.
Ladies also please be aware that he will send you pictures of his erect penis, and ask you to send him nude pics of yourself.
