Untitled Dating Scam on Yahoo, ref:22095 
Sean Allen
I met him on okcupid and he reports being deployed in Chad Africa. After a few days of chatting on yahoo messenger he reports needing money due to his credit card being blocked for illegal unauthorized activities and he needs money to take online courses to get a promotion. He flat out asked me for 600 dollars. I told him I felt uncomfortable with such a request and he said he'd repay me in January. I continued to chat with him to get more information thinking this may be a scam. He deleted his ok Cupid account a couple days ago. His yahoo messenger is sean.allen3.

Thanks to google after he told me his last name was Allen I googled him and found this information! I am relieved to find this out about hiim. I just feel awful for others that did send money. I trusted my gut..... Thanks to the Internet it saved me money, time, and from potential heartbreak.
