This is a separate suspected scam than the one I originally contacted you about. I'm trying to find out who this Tom Anderson is. He claims to be from Portugal and the name Tom Anderson is a far cry from a Portuguese name. He grew up there and his accent confirms to me that he wasn't raised here in the states. I've done the scam check as I did on the other potential scam but the way the results are written out in some cases it seems as though Tom Anderson is on our side and not the scammer. They make it very confusing.
I think as I haven't heard anything from the previous probable scam they are backing off realizing I'm not going to send them any money. They sure have a way of making it sound good and hard to resist.
Here's the email that started this current on going transaction: I see as you will that he apparently doesn't know how to spell Thomas but now goes by Tom. This email I received on Oct. 30, 2011 so two months have passed and as yet I have sent him any money nor has he asked for any (YET). If you do have any information about Tom (Thomas) Anderson
