He actually called my cell phone and his accent was anything but English - more like a Nigerian or other African accent and I could barely understand him.
I have copies of all of his e-mails to me just in case I needed them.
My son has helped me by going online and finding out more about these scams and I will make sure "Mike Smith" never contacts me again.
Of course, he said he would "fund" it to me when he came back home.
Unfortunately, I did give him my home address because he wanted to send me flowers, which he did and his note was so sweet. So now I have to delete all these things from my cell phone and computer but at least I didn't send him any money.
I almost called the FBI but was told they are aware of this scam and so is the Nigerian government.
So if anyone else has been writing to a guy call [email protected] know he's a real fake.
When I asked him why he needed to be there doing that kind of work, he said he traveled all over the world.
I have our entire conversation from the Yahoo Instant Messenger printed out for my records.
The picture he sent to me of what was supposed to be a picture of him was someone who looked too good to be true - much younger than the 55 years old he said he was, he appeared to be about 35 - 40 - and probably a male model.

He did all the same things these scammers apparently do by writing these truly mushy e-mails and calling you all these sweet names, then wanting you to text them on their cell phones, set up Yahoo IM and so on.
I was very lucky to realize he was a scam because he would never answer my questions about himself and kept postponing the date when he was supposed to be arriving back to the states.
