  Information
Name:

This Man approached through Plenty of Fish dating site.
Said he was traveling to South Africa to finalize business and then moving to Australia permanently.
Initially emailing and telephoning over a couple of months then said that he was transferring his funds from an account in Pretoria in South Africa to Australia.
Had documents sent via \"First National Bank of South Africa\" which looked genuine.
Had $2,700.00 and $700.00 deposited into a specific account to be on forwarded to him via Western Union.
I questioned many times about this being a scam and how could it be that fees had to be paid to transfer funds.
I stupidly believed this man and sent funds and after a couple of months of asking for my funds to be returned I contacted the Head Office of First National Bank and forwarded emails to them and was advised that this was in fact a scam.
Said this:
I attented Stranahan High School Ft. Lauderdale, FL Graduated 1979, High School Diploma and Degree: Bachelor\'s Degree in engineering at the University of central florida. Orlando, FL 1984,
