Maybe I look like a target but I have been approached 5 times in the last six months. Yes, the Cobby Brown aka CON stated he needed 00 before they would perform the surgery. After a few days she sent a Western Union Money Order to the UK.I then got a distressing message saying that money that was being held by a security company was going to be destroyed unless he paid the Attorney for the security company ,000 dollars to have the suitcase holding his money (,000,000.00) was going to be destroyed. I played along but said I didn’t have any money to help him out & that I would have to take out a loan - that didn’t bother him. After exchanging messages only 2 days, he was getting deployed to Syria, all he needs is someone to request him to return. I was contacted on Facebook by Dr James Brown who told me he was an orthopaedic surgeon on contract to the U.

Frank Williams photo on FB he is supposedly with his 14 year old son.
I started chatting to a guy who said he was english born but his father was american.
He was working for the united nations as an orthapedic surgeon which I thought was a bit of a story but I went along with it.
We were chatting for a few weeks and he suggested going onto messenger as it would save money on subscriptions.
He told me things like he was also a widower and told me about his wife etc. I gave him my mobile and he rang me each evening and we would chat for 5 or 10 mins at a cost to him not me. When I came back we chatted for another couple of weeks and then he asked me for some money so that he could home and we could be together.
I didn't like Hangouts but he insisted on using Hangouts.
