"If it looks like a duck

it is probably a duck!"
As promised, breaking news. I'll cut right to the chase and then offer details.
Mr X, the French man, who spent at least one month's subscription to Chemistry_Not.com, is indeed a Nigerian romance scammer. It took three conversations for it to reveal itself fully. I will be sharing my story with romancescammer web site.
Like I said, I suspected as much from the start. But let this be a lesson to anyone online dating! Even the expensive guided communication sites are prime real estate for clueless victims for these crafty thugs.
Today when I asked if we could chat using web cams, he wrote back that he would love to but it would have to wait until he got settled in the Benin Republic. I laughed my head off. That's West Africa. He wrote he got a contract to build an orphanage there and was leaving tomorrow. I played it straight, told him to have a safe trip, etc. Then I couldn't help myself and I added that he should watch out for online Internet scammers from Africa who use strange ways to become friends and try to take advantage of you. He said he never heard of such a thing and that he would be very careful.
Now some people wonder (including myself) WHY would someone go through that hassle? What is it they're trying to gain? Well, money. Perhaps your identity. And who knows what else. I've read many reports and testimonials of some very bad situations. Of course I would NEVER send money or even pay for a phone call.
At least I know my *cough*clickhere*cough* Seattle is real, even if he has gone MIA two days before his 30th birthday.
