Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
The above named found me on facebook and after just 2 contacts he wanted me to go onto Yahoo messenger as he claimed he did not use facebook much. I did not know about IM so did as he asked. Well to cut a long story short we talked for around 3 months on IM and over the phone by a calling card. He claimed he was a global contractor construction engineer and was working on log cabins in Nigeria, Ikeja, Lagos, and was shortly to finish his project, then was going to come to UK to see me. He also claimed to have a 16 year old son called Cody. His wife had died 6 years ago, and he lived in Denver, Co. for the last 4 years. He was German/Australian and 54 years old. Well he was the usual wonderful person, kind, caring, romantic and I thought I had bagged myself a right winner here. Then 2 weeks ago he claimed his building tools he ordered had been seized by customs in Nigeria, and required $1200 to get his tools so he could finish project get paid so he could pay his co-workers and leave country. Claimed he had no money or understood the money there. I told him to contact US and speak to someone for help, but claimed he was not a citizen of US so they would not help, and also his bank in US had frozen his account as he was not there at the time. Saisd he sued the bank a few years before as there was a problem with fraud!!! can you believe that. His hotel manager where he was staying, Bola Samuel from H Suit Hotel told him that I could pay by Western Union, and Bola would collect money with John as John was not a citizen or have a bank account. Well this completely made alarm bells ring. I told John that I had no money which of course I haven't, but he kept on what am I going to do, I need to get out of this country. So in the end I decided I could lend him a bit about $300 and he would get the rest from his hotel manager. Last week I had second thoughts as something did not right to me. So I told him could not get his money, he became very abusive and rude called me unimaginable things and swearing a lot at me. He has since been in contact and has told me never to tell anyone about him. So this if anything should prove just what a scammer he would have been, if I had given him money. I am so pleased I never and came to my senses. he is due to go home to Denver this Saturday 14th September 13.
He claimed he wanted $1200 to pay customs in Nigeria to release his building tools so he could finish his project of log cabins in Ikeja Lagos, and pay co-workers and leave country. Wanted me to pay by Western Union, but alarm bells rang and thankfully never sent any to him. He is called John Meyer, tel no. 805 781 2115, and email Johnmeyer001@yahoo.com and also on facebook but without a picture. His profile shows him as having a son, and details in specific detail how he would like to meet someone special, claims he is honest, caring, and considerate. Definitely not honest
