I have been scammed by Boeh Williams

March 4, 2019

I met Boeh Williams on a internet dating sight on October 2018. He claimed to have inherited his fathers portion of a family business. This business took him to foreign countries, and Africa in particular (nigeria). Boehs residence in in Memphis, Tennessee, 38103-886. 118 Harbor Isle Circle South.
Initially we exchanged pleasantries and developed a friendship and soon it developed into a long distance relationship. (Although we have never meet in person). He was smooth and wonderful with the right words at the right time and so he gained my confidence and my trust. We chatted daily on the internet or spoke to each other on the cell phone. He has a n accent claiming he was born and spent time in Sweden.
He was on a business trip to Africa eluded to me that he h ad come across a great deal and had purchased some good at a great price
while still in Africa he asked if he could use my address to send the gold from Africa to the USA to my residence. Boeh said he only trusted me to receive his shipment since he would probably still be in Africa when the shipment got to its destination. I agreed seeing no harm in helping him out with that. Then days later, Boeh told me he needed financial help to pay customs fees and delivery company
Charges and that he didn't have access to his bank account in Memphis.
I loaned him ,several different times ,money to take care of the fees. Often too, he would request iTunes and Amazon gift cards since some way he could convert them into cash, he said. Something involving Bitcoins???
The name of the delivery company is "Expressworld Delivery Co.
The delivery company would upon occasion contact me to into Boeh about the status of the package.
As time elapsed Boeh and I became closer and he told me that he would be able to support us both comfortably if we stayed together.
The parcel arrived in the USA and became delayed in Washington D.C. By customs. Customs needed Boehs signature on specific documents to allow the package to continue to Kentucky. Boeh ended up becoming sick and had to be admitted to a hospital in Memphis for 2 weeks.the delivery company became uncooperative and turned the package over to customs and the CHi became involved and tagged the package as money laundering. The delivery company stated Boeh could obtain a U.N. Attorney and they had contacts with one by the name of Sonja Holland,whom the delivery company said could get all this package issue cleared up in 3 days for a few of $12,000 dollars.
Boeh then began pressing me to come up with $7,000 dollars since all he could get was $5,000. I didn't have that kind of money and I told Boeh that fact.Then a a few hours later, I received and email from an FYI Avnet by the name of Anthony Armstrong, who I would face being arrested if we (Boeh and myself) didn't satisfy the delivery company's document request and this could not be satisfactorily the U.N. Attorney. Arrest be be forthcoming.
I have been drawn into this situation blindsided and have yet to meet Boeh Williams face to face.I am guilty of trusting someone who happened to be a scammer, I feel.
