Lastly, the turning point was when Cobby was chatting with me online and all a suddenly, he received a text from his nanny. He lost his wife 6 years ago to cancer and has a 14 year old son who is in a UK boarding school.I started chatting to a guy who said he was english born but his father was american.

A Garrett Michell however it was a totally different person than what Garrett michell’s profile looks like. Especially since he advised me not to share our relationship with anyone. Open your eyes ladies and don't be desparate for these Nigerian scammers as they need to be arrested. I fell for the last one simply because of his looks. He showed all kinds of photos and even a video while he was at a party. Just messages but we did text on one of the numbers. This guy was good but I questioned everything which really annoyed him. He knows how to build trust with all the photos and he even showed me him at work, sitting behind his desk (hahaha) Now I know that he was at an internet café playing a role. He says he is a surgeon on a peacekeeping mission in Syria. If my experience helps some other vulnerable woman it is worth reporting.

Email scam is an unsolicited email that claims the prospect of a bargain or something for nothing.
Some scam messages ask for business, others invite victims to a website with a detailed pitch.
For instance, scammers are urged to include an email from the mother of the girl in the first 10 emails between the scammer and a target.
The scammer often pretends to be a young woman in an isolated or desolate region of Russia who is desperate for a new life, and the email from the girl’s supposed mother is intended to add legitimacy to the scheme.
