Love On The Internet

Love On The Internet

 

It all started when this man from Louisiana contacted me on yahoo messenger asking if he could talk to me. We hit it off just great. We would talk three times a day asking questions between us and getting to know one another quite well. He sent me pictures of him and his daughter. He was so handsome! His daughter who was twelve years old was such a pretty little thing. The more we talked the more I fell in love with this man. I never thought I would or could ever fall in love like this again. I felt like a teenager all over again. We talked for months. A few days after we met he told me he had to go to Africa to work with his job. He was an engineer who designed pipeline for other countries. Then he would have to go to these countries and layout his design for them to see. While in Africa he called me one day to tell me someone had broken into his motel room and stole all of his money and he had no money to purchase his ticket to leave that country.  He asked if I could help him out. He told me just as soon as he got over here he would have the money transferred to him so he could pay me back so I sent him two hundred dollars. As time went on he told me quite frequently how much he loved me. I was so in love with this man I had never met. We even talked of getting married. My heart was so swollen with love for this man that I didn’t think he was being dishonest with me. I tended to believe every thing he said to me. As time went on several other things happened, like he was supposed to be in the hospital with malaria and needed money to buy medicine. So I sent him more money. Then he needed more money cause he had missed his flight because he was put in the hospital so there was a penalty he would have to pay to get his visa back. So again I sent him more money so he could buy his ticket and leave that country. All in all I ended up sending him over one thousand dollars. In the end he was supposed to fly into the airport one hour from where I lived. So I go to the airport to pick him up thinking he would be there only to my surprise he was not. I stuck around the airport for an hour when I realized there was no such flight number as the one he gave me so I came home without him. Two days later when I finally got a hold of him he gave me some lame story that he was delivery a package to someone here in the states but while he was going through customs the package turned up to be marijuana. So at this time customs detained him and put him in jail. He supposedly spent two days in jail. At this point my heart was starting to ache. When he finally got out of jail I let him know that under no circumstance was I ever going to send another dime over there to him and that he would just have to get a job. So a few days went by and I couldn’t seem to be able to get a hold of him. A few days later he finally called me to say he had gotten a job. I still loved him very much. I let him know at that time that my cable and my Internet would be shut off soon because instead of paying these bills I had sent my money to him. He always promised that once he got here he would pay my bills for me. I had even sent him my rent money for this month. So he said since we couldn’t talk on the Internet that he would call me on my cell phone. I couldn’t call him from my cell phone because I didn’t have that option on my cell phone nor can I afford it now. After all that has happened and all that he put me through I still love this person. I don’t even know if this person is who he says he is. I still love him very much. So to end this story I need to stress how important it is to not get caught up on the Internet in this kind of a SCAM.  They will tell you anything you want to hear just to get whatever they want out of you. People playing with other people’s hearts; what a shame! I will be so happy when this hurt goes away from my heart. The End
