In it, a scammer takes over one of his real-world friend's accounts ("Calvin"), pretends to be stranded in London, and asks for money to get a plane ticket and pay hotel bills.

I started laughing when I read it and immediately knew my instincts were correct-SCAMMER! It’s really hard to find a person that is interested in a possible long term relationship and not just a one night stand. My late Mom was from Kansas and My dad was from, West Africa cos he was brought up from Nigeria … my Late mother and father were married for 43 years and I think that is truly wonderful thing and I want to let you Know that i relocate from Elsmore , Kansas to Powell St, San Francisco anytime from now which I let you know that i just got a 1story 10 home yesterday .
- I will post his scam email here so hopefully when other 13 year olds or disgusting old crooks sitting in a room in Nigeria try to pull this crap on another person , they will know they are being set up by one of the oldest scams in the book. they both meet in Rome , ITALY , where i grow up and they instilled many wonderful values in me. I want this also very much..although my life is full of love , there is the most important element of life that is missing from mine.life person must be sincere, honest, understanding and family oriented.
Like a Nigerian scammer, posing only slightly convincingly as one of your real-life friends, trying to get you to send them a 0 wire transfer.
A former university colleague ("Evan") passed along this Facebook conversation, which he promises really happened to him.
