Other Comments:
This guy (whoever he is) uses very poor English and contradicts himself in his stories, which is what tipped me off. He claims he is a car dealership owner in Colorado Springs, CO, who is widowed. Said his wife & baby daughter died in a car crash 5 years ago, and he has a 13 year old son. Now he claims he is in Nigeria trying to get a shipment of trucks and Hummers back that were mistakenly shipped there instead of Colorado! (Which does not make sense
considering the lack of proximity between these two countries) Lately, he says he is behind on bills & cannot afford to get back to the states, so he keeps emailing asking for money....leaving the phone number: +2348033438178 or +2347087256665

I know this guy as Gorex Holar. Met him on LDSplanet singles site in September 08. Same story. He uses poor english, has a very heavy accent and seems to be in Nigeria for work alot. Work is as a chemical engineer. He claims he is the CEO of his own company, which when we first met he needed money to help start. I have never given this guy a dime. He is very good at making you belive his story and says he loved me and wanted to buy a house here in the states for us to live in, etc etc. He likes the soccer team located in Manchester England, has 3 kids, two who are in their early 20's and a son named Rick who is 10-11. Claims his kids mother died 5-6 years ago in a car crash. He says he just recently bought a big house in Manchester England where his home office is. He buys Astin Martins and Cadillacs etc. This is why I never gave him a dime. I am a single mom with 5 kids living with me. That's how I know he was a fake. Why ask someone like me for money if he had millions himself. He tried to get me to buy him a new cell phone and the only address he ever gave me was one in Nigeria to send the cell phone to, which I never did.

The cell number he gave me is +2348033438178. Says his birthday is September 7 but never could get a straight answer on the year. He sent me 2 different pictures, one of him younger and one that was suppose to be recent with his son Rick in it. His email address he used is Claims he is close to his mother. He said he was going to come here to see me several times, including over Christmas and was bringing gifts. He mentioned several times that he called my name out in various situations because he was thinking of me. This seems to be one of his favorite lines to use.

I was suspicious of him from the beginning and confronted him evertime he asked me for money. He is very good and reeling you in. He kept taking about a business partner from Jordan and I even spoke to him one time on the phone. He spoke better english, but I believe that work together to scam women and that they are both based out of Nigeria.

You can google gorexh and get several other profiles on other sights for him including the first picture that he sent me.
