Met her on a date line, we talked numerous times. She told me she was in love, and she was in Nigeria to get her inheritance, she needed to be married before the bank would release it cost $770.00 for 5.5 million u.s. dollars. Then she needed $10,000 for what she said was a enlargement fee. She wanted me to open a account in my name she would transfer it to for us to have. She wanted me to let her know my user name and password to account as soon as I got it. She kept repeating how she loved me and was proud of me standing up for us. She told me she would never lie or do anything to hurt me. Then today 3/13/16 I found her on another date site having six new guys get in touch with her. I know I'm a fool for taking the bate, I just don't want anybody else to have to go through this. I've sent her a message letting her know what I found out, and she will not answer back. That's okay with me, that just tells me she scammed me.

I accepted Alexandria Annabelle as a friend on Facebook. Exchanged emails and began talking. Told me what I thought was some history on her and she talked bout the Lord, said she was dying from stag lung cancer. After a few chat we got into this inheritance thing and she needed someone to Trust this money to because the bank Said she was too sick. Eventually I brought and gave up my bank numbers, only saving. I had taken my little money out. When they realized that., here cones the couriers fees if $550US dollars or either cone to Nigeria to sign documents. I said the devil is a liar, we can go through my bank electronically to sign papers. The bank never called back, but she did email a few tines but her conversation became a little more aggressive and rude. My husband told mg it sounded fishy. I changed my bank numbers and haven't heard from them since. So yesterday I got curious and googled the address. My mouth just dropped. And this is where we are now...
