Comment: Well, I almost went through with the wishes of an alledged Nigirian Minister named Leonard Okobi not believing it was real. Well, without any more than my name and address he took out a loan in someones name, wanted me to deposit it into my bank account and send him a seperate check from my account. I through the check away and he threatened to have the FBI looking for me if I did not send him the check and I told him I was onto him and that if the fbi were looking for anyone it would be him. Well after that he left it alone and today he sent me an email that was the same as the very first one he sent that started this whole thing. He is still at this thing and I want to know how to get him turned in for this hazardous crime.

It's amazing that these scammers claim to be from another country and yet know how to "txt talk". Even diplomats from Nigeria. These scammers aren't really trying anymore.

Comment: I found out the hard way about a charlatan named Sara Freder. She
hustles money for psychic predictions, and will not honor her guaranteed
refund.

Sara Freder keps sending me her crap in my email. For some supposed psychic, she doesn't seem to realise my name isn't "Patrick", as she keeps insisting I am.

The general consensus seems to be that she's a fake.

Comment: Who do I contact in the case of fraud? The job was listed on
career builder which I just saw on your site; I had no idea that some
people would be so evil that they would do this to people. Now the email
they sent me tells me they can sue me for not following through. How do I
go about fixing this and like I asked before, who do I contact, the FBI or
the city police? I hope to hear from you soon so that I can take care of
this soon. Please contact me soon.

Comment: Its been a few months now but I have been chatting with a
gentlemen in NIEGERIA. I have sent him a total of $1800.00. This last
time that I sent him money it was from a Cashier's Check that was sent to
me. Because the bank gave me the money ahead of time I now owe them that
money back. Not sure how I am going to handle that as I am a Senior on
Fixed Income. My question to you is I have received an email from him
telling me that $14,500.00 has been approved to me from a bank that he has
an account in, in Canada. This form all looks so real. I do I know if it
is for real or not? I have feelings for this man now and I don't know
what to do. The name of the compahy that the money is coming from is
called: Service@AlertPay.com. Can you please help me out in this matter.
Thank You!

I hate it when I get scrammed too. I guess that's what I get for loitering so much, though.
