Story of Dating Scam

Dear Mark,

I entered to a site to find someone to date (www.amoremcristo.com.br) here in Brazil and I received a message from a girl from Senegal, telling me a strange story of U$ 5.9 million dolar of the late father and she said that I had to send her money to feed, clothes and documents to come to Brazil to marry me, etc, etc, etc.

I was very suspicious about it and start responding emails to see where she could get.

Now, she is asking for money to prepare the documents to come to Brazil to meet me "face-to-face" as she says.

Well, I didn´t send any money and I am not going to send any. She said she is in a Catholic Organization  (Caritas) and even a "Father" and a "Barrister" called me to say that everything she said is true.

I think this is a Criminal Organization to extort money from gullible and silly people (christian).

If you want more information, I will give you.

Regards, 

Airton
