Philip Brown
Email Address:
He contacted me through and immediately said we should email because it was faster. Said he is British and Dutch. Educated in the Netherlands. He was near the end of his project and would be coming back to the US very soon. Suddenly he was telling me how close he felt to me. That he wanted us to be together forever. He asked if I would pick him up at the airport when he came home. I asked for his address so I could map the best route from the airport to his apartment. He didn't include a street number.
Then he started having problems. He traveled on a one day trip. For some reason he'd checked luggage and it was stolen. His computer and credit cards. Odd. Why would he check his credit card but not his passport.
He was so happy that his project was being handed over to the government and he could come "home". Then the Minister of something insisted that he fly on short notice to Abuja to get his money. And the ticket for he and his personal assistant were too expensive and he asked if I would send him the money to pay for the tickets.
I told him that I didn't have credit cards or extra money to send him. Suddenly, all communication stopped. I found an FBI website that laid out exactly what had happened. and I copied and pasted it in an email to him.
