Said he'a an American working as an offshore engineer in UK. Had scammed US$6k from me and is still asking more. Is anyone intouch with him? I was shocked to see his 1st email to me, identical to one on this site. He's asking for funds to be transfer to a Mr Eric Cottrell in Nigeria. Got suspicious and google this name. That's how I found this website. Thank U for all your efforts.
