Nov 16, 2017 – The African Man My Mother Met On Dating App Is Scamming Her..Please Help
My mom met an African man on a dating app online. They had been chatting for like 3 weeks before they suggested meeting each other. I asked her where he was from and she said Nigeria but he was living in Connecticut with a friend. I asked her how long has he been in America and she stated for 7 months.
As the time got closer for him to come visit her he started telling her he loved her and wanted to marry her and I’m like he hasn’t even met you yet and you just got divorced from your second husband not even two months ago. She go into this I don’t want her to be happy and I believe him phase. So fast forward to this meeting they decide to stay in a hotel for 2 days but she has to pay for the room and he’ll give her half of it when he gets down here.
I asked her did she think she was getting scammed considering how far Georgia is from Connecticut and he has to take a bus to get here. He gets here and goes back after the three days and not even a month later he’s packed up and moved in with her in Georgia. I talked to her and she had a falling out with me and my siblings and kicked everyone out the house and next thing we know they are married and she taking him to some place for a citizenship test. Fast forward to a year and half later we get in contact with her because we done all had babies now and she has fallen out with every family member of ours. I wanted to make sure she was ok but this was like her opportunity for her to force him on us and we weren’t having it.
I finally just snapped and asked her all the questions the family had been asking us like did she meet his family since he says he has two brothers in America that has traveled to quite a few states so I asked has she seen him. She stated no but she had talked to his mom and sister over the phone but 1 of his brothers supposedly stays in the next city. I asked her has he talked about going back home and she stated he was going back Christmas time to visit but she wasn’t going. I then proceeded to ask her why she fell out with the family and she stated it was because my aunt husband who got him a job when he first got down here was mistreating him with hours and going to see some woman down the street on his lunch break so she told my aunt all this and she felt like my aunt could have did something about it.
First of all I felt like if someone helped you get a job under the table for you to have some money why would you even fix your mouth to come back and report something like that. After that accident my mom fell out with everyone so I told her and she said she didn’t even have to talk to me anymore either and we have fallen out again. I just feel like this man is scamming her and she don’t see it.
Please how do I come in and help her..
