American stuck in Eygpt
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Richard Klein
Email Address:
   richardkline911@gmail.com
Allegedly,Mr Richard Kline is originally from Ireland,his wife pregnant got cancer and she and their baby both died, Mother died in Ireland from a car accident. Offered job as an oil driller and went to US took father over to the US where he died also.Incidentally he has no friends but did whilst in Eygpt(?) refer to work friends. Mr Kline flew to Eygpt on a contract drilling job, got paid a BOA check, no BOA in Egypt can\'t cash check(for substantial amount). Asked to send monies ($1,000)via Western Union to Adebola Alui who incidentally resides at 1115 Corniche el Nile Cairo Egypt, to pay for accommodation he was in. Was making arrangements to get back to California.

You guessed it, hit a snag.Still had no-way of cashing check.Could I send him an Airline ticket please. When I suggested that he speak with the US embassy in Egypt he said that it had been bombed.As he had a laptop and phone I gave him email addresses and phone number of where he could access support/help if he was indeed in dire straights. Surprise, surprise, he not only became annoyed and angry but also had an excuse as to why he could not access help. To be honest I do not know if Richard Kline is his real name, If he is stuck in Eygpt and has no way of getting back to the States I feel really sorry for him given Christmas is nearly upon us.

His emails use very poor sentence structure and poor spelling yet other times it\'s ok.
