Hi, I am posting to this forum in an attempt to get information out to anyone and everyone I can. On 19 Dec 09, a Samson Malcolm, of Manchester, United Kingdom, CEO of a Geology company contacted me. We began emailing, instant messaging, and eventually speaking on the telephone. Samson Malcolm told me he was on his way to Nigeria to do some work there. After the first week he was there he sent me a request to wire him 22K USD to the following: MONEY GRAM NAME: ABE AYOOLU Adress: BLK4 FLT 2 MARYLAND HOUSING ESTATE, IKEJA, LAGOS STATE Country: NIGERIA Zip Code: 23401 This guy was so sweet and so perfect that I thought I should have a background investigation conducted. So I contacted Wymoo International and the report they provided me confirmed this guy is a Nigerian advance fee fraud. None of his information could be validated, all his IP traffic originated in Nigeria, his phone number is a IP based telephone number. His credentials are all fake, including his company. What amazes me is how this guy Samson Malcolm has himself all over the internet, on facebook, linkedin, and every kind of online dating site available. If you should come across this username, [firstname.lastname@example.org] or yahoo messenger id samsmalcom, or phone number +44-701-114-6496. Stay clear because this guy wants money. He was relentless and manipulative in order to try and get me to send him money. The types of incidents that he claimed happened to get him in such a financial demise were almost comical. First, his equipment broke and one of his workers was injured, and his AMEXP card didn't work in Nigeria. Then he was going to get thrown out of his hotel for not paying his bills. When I asked him why didn't he work with his company back home to have them help him he made up all kinds of convoluted excuses. Then the last thing that happened is he was hospitalized and diagnosed with a hole in his heart and needed to be operated on but he would not let them in Nigeria. It went on and on and on...I never sent this person any money but admittedly he was tenacious about trying to get money from me. I just wonder whose pictures he stole to create this online persona.
