Met on Date hook up website and said he wanted a relationship. He said that his wife was killed in a car crash 5 years ago. Also claimed that both his parents had also passed on. When I met him he was supposed to be station in Afganistan by the ARMY and then moved to Nigeria for a peace keeping mission. First he requested money to purchase a military phone so he could talk to me more. Anytime he called the connection was bad. When I called there was a weird song and a recording for Nigeria and said to try the call again. This was very organized, emails from his \"General\" were sent with a form for his leave to fill out. Then his \"General\" requested money for his plane ride home $1700 and his leave $1400.Unfortunately, I sent the money. I felt caught up in the thing. Be careful.
