Other Comments:
This guy is quite amateur material and begs for money after only a few short emails. I was onto his game just reading his profile and thought I would 'play' with him for awhile.

'My Name is Japhet. Am a Widow dad of a 13 year old boy that means world to me. Am a full time Telecommunication engineer. I do service and Installations of equipments for different countries.

i have been very busy with installation of the New Equipments am handling on the contract i just got,to tell you about myself. I'm Caucasian, 45,Am in a good lovely shape. I have Black hair and Brown eyes. My work Varies mostly out of the country, I have been out of the United state since 5th of Januray for a contract on installation and networking for a telecommunication company in Abuja Nigeria,no big deal.
I have been a Widow for long now when i lost my Ex in a Car accident . I am having a great time being on my own with my Lovely Son Mike for the first time ever (meaning not under my parent's roof ), and I'm loving it! Yeah, there are challenges, but I just love the freedom and the self-confidence I have gained as a result of leaving a verbally abusive relationship,'
(hey, I thought she died in the car accident )
blah blah blah blah

Then he springs the loaded question I was waiting for all along. Geez I thought he would woo me at least. We didn't even speak on IM either, just a few emails back and forth. LOL what a dumbass!

'Dear Angle,

How are you doing, I really appreciate your mail, I am not happy to be all alone here without you, you always make my heart bit, I want you so much and i believe that i always care about you the way you do care about me. (I do? )

Love, I am have a little problem now with the hospital, I need to pay some bill of so that i can be out of the hospital, because am planing to come and meet you in person next week once am out of here love.'

(Who invited him???)

'Love, I want you to help me with $200 because my company said they will have to pay me in full once am in the state. Please if you can do that for me, please try and email me back so that i can give you the Doctor information on how to pay him or contact with him. '
(Yah right, thought you were an engineer )

Love you forevery

Then I replied and pretended like I didn't even hear him ask that and IT'S CONFUSING THE OUT OF HIM! HAHAHAHAHHA

Then he replied with this weird story:

'How are you doing today? Am very sure it would sounds so worried to you to get this e-mail from me with another E-mail address,i was so down to earth and sick over this issue.I had serious problem with my hotel connection...just to make you happy and updated, i had to run to a public cyber cafe which i didn't know there way a password hacker on it.i couldn't send the mail and i couldn't access my e-mail address anymore.
I was very much happy that i kept your e-mail ID in my personal Id. so its risk for you to talk to me on the other ID, here is my new e-mail address now which you can add me to your yahoo Messanger and we can chat. if you want to know the fact ask me some question and i would proof to you that am the right person.

Anyways I didn't reply and he offline IM'd me using his OLD address asking if everything was all right with me.
Seems like he recovered from whatever was ailing him.
