There is no particular link. This man presented himself to my 79 yr old mother in law and began a romance with her only to convince her to send him almost $10,000 in "lawyer's fees' to protect her property in Ecuador which he said the government was going to give away to the tenants because she was currently in the states. He said his name is Alejandro Aroca and he intended to marry her. He had been watching her on facebook. they spoke for several months and met up in Ecuador for a couple dates. He told her that men from the government were looking for him and he was going to fly out as soon as possible and then he suddenly went "missing". She realized too late he was a scam artist and sent him an angry message to which he responded with a nasty blackmail threat to put together a intimate video of her to share with the world if she kept looking for him.
