E - Whoring
So as mentioned in an earlier post my supervisor is doing some form of online meeting of guys in the area. This story has turned into a saga and it must be told, basically because it is fucking nuts. So as for mentioned she went on my space and just searched for some single guys in the area. While I don't think the Internet is the best place to find someone, I may just be behind the times, I hoped she found someone for her sake she is a nice person. So she finds this guy and they begin to chat through IM and email. Basically he says he is a widower and his wife died 5 or 6 years ago. He said she was killed in a car crash, which seems sad at first but after this I question whether it was set up by him, or even if that is true. He talked through IM with a weird accent and said he was something like middle European. I read some of the transcripts and he calls her "baby". I mean every other line was like ok baby, yes baby, don't say that baby. He then said they (him and his wife) had two kids together and they are both in school at Oxford....yes thats right, OXFORD, both of them. Right about now I'm calling B.S. He said he was a civil engineer. OK, maybe hes got money and the kids are prodigies....He then went on to say his wife was from Liberia and that was his favorite country and that he lived there for some 6 years from 2000 to 2006. I said to my supervisor um Liberia is like a war torn 3rd world country who had a civil war in the early 2000s. I said they also were a major exporter of conflict diamonds. She was like what? I said um did you ever see Blood Diamond. She said no. I said before you continue talking to this guy watch that movie. I said this guy is probably exporting diamonds right now and turning kids into soldiers while cutting off their parent's hands. She didn't get anything that I was saying. So then he goes on to tell her that he is missing around $450,000 out of his account. OK first off this guy is fucking with you. And second he seemed like it was not that big of a deal...your bank must be deep if you don't care about $450k....shit if $4.50 is out of my account I want someones ass. He tells her everything will be ok because he is going to Denmark to lock down a $31 million dollar job. I said ok hes going to sell some more blood rocks. So he calls her from "Denmark" she said it came up with a weird number on her phone but he also said he was calling through the computer. I said oh he was using Skype or something like that. Can anyone confirm that if you use Skype from the states it still comes up with a weird number? I'm not to familiar with it so any readers input would be appreciative. So I told her, he is going to ask for money...she said I don't think he is going to try a scam. I said watch. So while over in "Denmark" he said it is going to cost $32k in legal fees to get the deal done....ok maybe the fees would be that much for a large deal like this. He tells her he only has $26k but is working on getting the rest. A few days later what does he do...asks her if she has any extra cash. She said um no I have a family to take care of and have no extra cash. I'm glad she stayed strong, the guy said ok I understand but can you do me a favor. And she asked well what is the favor. He asked her if she would go and cash a check at a bank for a "client" of his. She terminated the conversation there. This shit is fucking nuts...she said she was not going to talk to him anymore but I've seen her IMing him so more updates on this story as it progressive. Lesson: find people the old fashion way, by going out!
