I got what looks like a legal contract with terms that seemed very letter of the law. After I responded to an email from Surgimed. The contract even included a monthly salary plus a 10% commission structure. I did research but didn't come across this site until after I signed the contract. I am able to terminate the contract within 2 weeks, or Surgimed can terminate my contract, if I am inactive with this check cashing scheme. The contact person I received the information from was ALMA ADAMS

Just received 5 walmart money orders for $490 each. Fraudulent, sent from a Judy Holcomb in Stamford, CT. Seems like these people get you on one email and then sen your address to a host of other Nigerian scammers. One would think the US government would care, but obviously by the size of these scams, they don't. Once again, we are on our own, and good common sense, and never let your money go to anyone who promises more back is the rule. Last Winter I got a check for $98,000 from an automobile retailer in Toronto, Canada, and they were forgeries. Also, there are a ton of lotteries from the Netherland that are phonies, being operated by Nigerians in England. Now matter how it looks, NEVER offer personal informtion, as these guys use it to gain password access to your bank accounts as well. Brian

Ladies Beware! This guy is really slick! Met a guy chatting online via yahoo messenger about a month ago. He uses the name Dale Johnson. He uses the email mr.dale_j@yahoo.com. He claims to reside in Oklahoma City, Okla. with his 6 year old daughter Cheyenne. He says he adopted her due to the death of his uncle. Says he moved to Oklahoma from Italy to take care of her about six months ago. He sent me pic's (not legit I'm sure) of him and his adorable daughter. Looks like an all American handsome white guy in the pic. He started chatting with me, telling me everything I wanted to hear. He told me he is looking to get married and have a mother for Cheyenne, how much he likes me, cares about me, wants to meet me. blah, blah, blah....as I was getting to know him I was really intrigued and started liking him a lot. He called me a few times from 323-510-2661 and the other times the number is blocked. The number he gave to me and said was his is an Oregon US cellular# that is no longer in service. He has a stong middle eastern accent. This started making me wander what's going on. Well, after a couple weeks of chatting online, he told me that he has a business deal in Nigeria and that he is leaving out of Tulsa Airport (I live in Tulsa so that airport sounded believeable to me) to go there and will be gone for a week and when he returns we will meet finally in person. About a week after he arrives in Nigeria he tells me that he was robbed at gunpoint and that they stole everything, all his cash out of his pockets (he claims was $11,000) and also took $700 out of his 6 year old daughters purse (Now why on earth would a 6 yr old be carrying around so much money?) He uses his daughter crying everyday to make me feel really sorry for them. Now he's stuck there stranded and needs my help to get back to states. He soon asked me for money $1000 but if I don't have that much that half is ok.
He sends me several messages but this is just some of what he writes me (you might get a good laugh):

Well baby i was looking that i will ask this from you. perhaps you can lend me some money so i can get quater of the goods and when i sell them i will be sending back you money and part of the remaining i will be using to get the rest of the goods, and then when i get to the states we wil have to meet. cos as at now i dont think there's any other alternative for me to be very very sincere
I really hope you can do this for me sweetie
And if you turn your back to me am finished
I told you i spent all my money on this business
I will turn you to what you never believed you could turn to baby
baby how much do you want you send now and through which service do you want to send it, so i will ask about it more?
Would be able to get at least half of the money sweetie?
I have not been sleeping and Cheyenne keeps telling me she wants to get back to the states
Am fed up with everything. i know you wont believe if i tell you that i stay in the Security ward now. am being thrown out of the hotel, but thank God the manager could plead with the Security and now Cheyenne is not feel happy and am feeling very guilty.
I have not been smiling for a long time now cos i have been finding everything useless nothing funny no hapiness again in me am really down and i hope something else dont happen to me. i have been pleading with the Police Commisioner to help me talk to his Officers so they can continue their Investigations and with all that it's still in vain.
So would you please permit me to go now and start preparing. i dont need to be lazy at all while in this kind of condition
You should know i have so many things to get on with

This was just bits of our last conversation a few days ago. I really did like him and trust him. I feel so angry and betrayed now. I did not like him enough to send him money so atleast I am not out anything.
If he continues messaging me I am going to take all his emails to the local police and FBI. Atleast I am not out any money, just a crushed heart for now.
I hope this helps anyone out there looking for love to be very careful you could run into this person online.
