I have been talking to a girl supposidly from Albuqureque that is an art dealer named Mary Laid, she was 'robbed' and the hotel took her passport so that she wouldn't run out on the bill. She is supposidly in Logos Nigeria. Way to good to be true after a couple weeks of talking. Sad part was I cancelled my personals account thinking I might have found the one until this email. The other sad part is I am a Goverment Agent in tracking down scams and almost got dooped myself. Be carefull.
'Thanks for the email... I am sorry I could not get on to mail you...its because of what happened to me...I was due to come back to US but something happened to me and I could not make it again... I got attacked by some robbers here and they took my valuables and my money too. I am so confused and I am weeping now because I was due to pay up my hotel bills and then leave but I cant now because the money I was supposed to use was that which was stolen...I dont want you to feel that I am after money or anything but I am just asking if u could help me in anyway..I know its kind of hard but I need to pay up this hotel bills here so that I can be allowed leave here for US. Pls in any little way you can just help me and I will really appreciate it...The bills total $1650 but with help from uncle I was able to pay $1000..I feel awful having to ask you for money but really I am in a tight corner and dont know what I should do.....I dont know if you could help me with the rest which is $650 ..ok??? I promise to pay you back on my return to the US.Even if you dont have up to that..U could just tell me how much you could help with so i can tell you how to get it sent to me..Thanks and sorry if i am bothering you with this...take care..hope to see you soon so we could talk better about the things we like most and hope that the fact that I asked for help doesnt ruin things between us...bye for now dear....Mary'

Then, you are disregarding all my postings telling, You the same message.

For crying out loud, Its a scam !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There isn't even the slightest chance that its not.
The scammer even told, You He wasn't a scammer LOL
Everything, You said is a made up Fairy tale non of its true.
Please believe me there are nothing but hundreds of scammers
working out of Nigeria right now.
There is no way on this Earth that this guy is real.
The entire story is the same as hundreds of others all over on this site alone.
You must stop being manipulated by a total stranger.
Never send money to anyone, You do not know. Not ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your being made into a fool.
Stop all communication with the scammer now do not wait.
Never tell the scammer anything about this site.
Never tell the scammer how, You found out the truth.
Never post, Your e mail address on this site.
Never answer anyone who posts a message on here and Say's
contact them for help.
No one at all from Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Gold Coast, Ivory Coast,
All of West Africa can be trusted on line right now. No One !!!!!!!!!!!
Your scammer is using the very same exact story that other woman
are being told right now. Think about it what are the odds, Your
not being scammed ?
Please believe me, Your talking with a Black man sitting in a Internet
Cafe with many others working with, Him scamming gullible people
all day long. No matter what the stupid made up story is, its not real.
Not one single word of it.
I hope for, Your sake, You realize this is a scam now.
Scammers use Fake names, Stolen photo's, they have many e mail addresses.
Nothing about the guy, You are trusting is real.
You are just like every other victim before, you believing the lies.
You must stop believing in the Fantasy that has been put in, Your head.
You can believe me now or, I guarantee, You will believe me later
when, Your hurt very badly and taken for as much money as this thief
can get out of, You.
The very fact that, You have been asked for money proves without any doubt
its a scammer.
I do not need to find this guy's name or see a photo over a scam
as obvious as this one.
You need to learn how to tell a scammer for, Your own sake.
You would have never gotten hooked this far if, You knew just the basics.
Well, I can't do anymore than try to warn, You.
If, I could, I would stop this guy for, You but its, Your life and, Your
money. The Scammer doesn't care if, You go into debt or lose everything,
You own. They are very Heartless cold blooded thieves that have learned
how to fool Men and Woman both. Your just another victim.
The Above Posting is the work of a scammer and needs to be ignored.
Go right ahead and threaten all, You want scammer.
I have posted rebuttals against, You on every thread, Your fake
Your not going to stop any postings on this site.
You may as well just shut, Your mouth.
I will continue to post warnings every time, You make any further attempt
to discredit real scammer reports on this site.
I have already told, You many times now to contact the site administrator
and give real proof to, Him to back up any claim, You have.
You have ignored my postings telling, You to stop any further postings.
So Fuck You Scammer ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everyone be warned that any posting by this Darlene Jones
are to be considered fake.
Notice on this posting She / He failed to show He / Shes last name is Jones.
She / He is most likely the scammer Mark Jones.
This same person objected to a posting about Wayne Smith also.
So here, You see the He / She object to something He / She has
defended in the past. Darlene has used many different names
If You look at the Wayne Smith posting under Male Scammers
You will see this same Darlene says do not remove the photo of Wayne
Then says plainly in other postings Mark Jones is the scammer.
I will post the picture of AKA Mark Jones AKA Wayne Smith
All anyone needs to do is fallow the links above the photo.
They will take, You to the real postings against the scammer and
the fake postings by this scammer.
She / He defends at times and also has made postings against
Mark Jones. Only the postings made by other people who are not
connected to this scammer can be considered real.
This scammer can't keep the story straight from one posting to another.
All must be considered fake and may in fact be placed here to waste, Our time.

sorry young lady,
nobody on here needs to talk to this man to find out he is just a scumbag.
you told us the right things
if he were genuine, say a US citizen stranded wherever in Africa, he could adress himself to the nearest US embassy or consulate to get help for repatriation.
the fact he did not do it and the story he told you clearly identifies him as a scammer
and be aware, he might not even be a US guy, but just pretending for the sake of his story
DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY
i think you had some guttfeelings that were right about him and brought you here
would be very helpfull if you could post some of his mails, with full header and also a pic
i feel sorry for you this scumbag has been playing with your feelings
but to some extend, everbody on here has had the experience
checkout the various threads on here and learn from it how to spot scammers from the beginning before you invest any hope or feelings
most men on here (except some occasional scammers visiting and posting BS) feel the same as i do and welcome you as a friend
be also aware he will maybe contact you with different name and address, so you better be prepared and have learned how to spot fakes
hope this was a little help to you

Has anyone heard of a guy named Nicholas Hawkley? he claims to be from Beaumont, TX but he's on a construction assignment in Nigeria. I believe he's a scam artist. He said he was due to fly home and went to buy his tickets but came up short on cash and that he can't cash his international check. I have no intention of sending him money but I want to know if anyone has heard of him
