I have found someone on Zoosk.com who is from where I am from. Philadelphia. She is a French Canadian woman who is 24 years old and is currently in Nigeria. I have been talking to her for about 3 months now and she sounded like a nice person to begin with. She told me her mother and father died when she was very young, and she went to Nigeria by herself because of the bad experience she had with ex boyfriend and she wanted to get more knowledge on her modeling career. However; a week later after we had started to get to know each other, she had told me that something had gone wrong with her credit card. She said someone may have hacked it and the card claimed as a fraud. She had asked me for $500 to show to the GTA. I tried to check her background as much as I could, but it wasn’t very accurate. I checked that modeling agency she worked for and address she gave me. They both existed. But its kinda of strange that she has been over there for a very very long time and I wanted to help her out. So I gave her the $500 piece by piece. But when she had given me her flight info, I haven’t heard from her for four days. Finally, I had gotten an email from her Dr. telling me that she was in a fatal car accident and she needed $400 to pay her medical bill. I was very hesitate to do it. Since she didn’t have any money, I pitched in $200. She had a ring that her grandmother gave her for the rest. Now she needs $300 more dollars to get home with. I told her I couldn’t do that because she was asking for too much money. I sounded really desperate and her Dr. was also pressuring to do. She told me she a check that was worth $9,500 and she wanted to transfer that into my account, but I told her that I didn’t think that was a good idea. Now she is at her house waiting for me to send $300 via Western Union. I said no. Is this an example of the dating scams in Nigeria?
