A decent person with a good job or business in search of a good, honest partner to settle down with.
You or someone you know may be dating this person online right now. No matter how good they sound, things aren't what they appear to be.
He immediately asked he to correspond via personal e-mail so I agreed.
He said he owned his own business and was currently building an oil platform near Capetown, Africa and that the job would end in mid April when he would return home.
Our conversations started out slowly talking about what we were looking for in a partner, a little about our lives and much about our faith in God.
His e-mails were articulate, and his knowledge of the bible was excellent.
He wrote wedding vows and we began talking on the phone 2-3 times per day.
What he did not count on is that countless friends came to me in the days before warning me this might be a hoax and I remembered God’s word telling us to test everything.My faith has carried me through but I am determined to help prevent this from devastating someone who might be more vulnerable.Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.Instead of sending spam letters that promise millions for your assistance, these scammers are targeting single men and women who are searching for love online.
