Scam through Facebook

I had a very interesting Chat with a Facebook Friend some days ago. Larry Williams was asking me to chat on Yahoo, since Facebook Network is very bad (I lost this first Part of my conversation).

He is a "native" American "Girl" sitting in Nigeria with a 14,400 US $ cheque and no cash. I captured most of the chat and blog it here. My comments are in blue colour. Read through it and make your own decision about it: SCAM or TRUE?

My Decision was to stop the Chat, delete the LADY from my Friends in Facebook and Yahoo Messenger and write this Blog.

First Part was not captured, since I already stopped the chat.

slksbkk 18:03
Good bye

larrywilliams2000 18:03
what do you mean? 18:03
but all not all people on internet are bad 18:03
i will be leaving here soon 18:03
larrywilliams2000 18:05

slksbkk 18:07
I do not like anything regarding Nigeria, since until now I( only got scammed from this country)

larrywilliams2000 18:08
wow i am so sorry to hear that but not all ladies are same

slksbkk 18:08
scamming has nothing to do with Ladies.
are you a Lady? 18:08
larrywilliams2000 18:09
yes i know but i am only trying to let you know that i am honest and i cant do such a thing
i know its not a good thing to be scammed 18:09
i hate the country as well 18:09

Larry is a Man's Name. My older Brother's Name also. This Lady is the first one I heard of having the First Name Larry.

slksbkk 18:09
So why is your yahoo and facebook name a Mans name?

larrywilliams2000 18:10
i was named larry after the deat of my grandpa
i know its very funny 18:10
lol 18:10
what are you doing for living and where are you from? 18:10
slksbkk 18:11
No Profile Picture, A Lady with Mans Name and Nigeria... sorry that sounds a lot like scam.
are you a native american? 18:11
larrywilliams2000 18:12
well...i told you that i am not from nigeria....i only came to claim my inheritance and that is all
i just open face book 2 weeks ago 18:12
i am new to all this internet what ever 18:12
slksbkk 18:12
OK, but are you a native american?

larrywilliams2000 18:13
yes of course

So now we know she is NATIVE American!

i have my passport and visa with me here as well 18:13
slksbkk 18:13
I believe that you have, otherwise you would not be able to enter a foreign country.
I use Facebook for quite a long time and it is one of the finest networks, only the chat is worse. 18:14
you will like it if you got used to it. 18:14
larrywilliams2000 18:15
yes thank you for that...but why do peolpe run from any body that came to nigeria

slksbkk 18:16
Nigeria is teh Number One Scamming country.

larrywilliams2000 18:16
yes i was told

slksbkk 18:17
and nobody likes scam

larrywilliams2000 18:17
yes you are right
but i also want to be very careful as well and that was i have decided to chose friend s from face book 18:17
are you single or married? 18:17
slksbkk 18:18
that is also suspicious
you are a friend on Facebook, but did not read the Profile. 18:18

real Friends read through your Profile and know such Data, except if it is not published. I am case it is visible to my friends.

I am married 18:18
larrywilliams2000 18:19
i said i dont know much about it and that is why i am asking
well with kids? 18:19
i am happy for you 18:19
where are you from and what are you doing for leaving? 18:20

Here a proof of bad english: using leaving instead of living.

slksbkk 18:21
I already told you this and your english is bad as from an non native american.

larrywilliams2000 18:23
well i am sorry ...my english is not that good
my dad was unable to send me to university before his death 18:24

Now the poor Dad was not able to send her to the University. Is this necessary to write and read a proper English if you are a American?

slksbkk 18:24
why? you are native american it should be. but there is a big difference between living and leaving

larrywilliams2000 18:24
i miss type 18:24
leaving means going 18:24
larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 18:26
slksbkk 18:26

what areyou doing in Nigeria? you said something about claim your inheritance 18:27
larrywilliams2000 18:28
yes i just got the inheritance now..i have it with me now
my dad left it for me 18:28
so i was called to come and claim it and that is why i came down here 18:29
larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 18:33
hi 18:35
larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 18:39
slksbkk 18:40
what did your dad do in Nigeria?

larrywilliams2000 18:43
he came down here to work with one oil compnay here befor ehi die
before he die 18:43

Another thing that made me thinking. 1. wrong English Grammar die instead of died (but this could be a typo) 2. working for a oil company in Nigeria is mostly used in scam  

larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 18:46
larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 18:47
well...i can see that you dont want to chat with me again 18:47
slksbkk 18:47

larrywilliams2000 18:48
oh i am so sorry for disturbing you
i was thinkig that you are running from me 18:48
slksbkk 18:48
I am now back at my Notebook

larrywilliams2000 18:48

slksbkk 18:50

larrywilliams2000 18:50

slksbkk 18:51

larrywilliams2000 18:51
ok ..i hope she wont be mad at you chatting with a lady?

slksbkk 18:52
why should she be mad?

larrywilliams2000 18:52
well...i am just asking cos some women are hot temper

slksbkk 18:53

my wife is like icecubes 18:53

:D That is True, but she would kill me if I had an affair with another woman.

larrywilliams2000 18:54
that is good

slksbkk 18:56

larrywilliams2000 18:56
well...i have been trying my best to get back to the state but i am having problem now 18:56
serious one 18:57
slksbkk 18:57
Aha, which problem?

Now the serious part is coming!

larrywilliams2000 18:57
well.....my return ticket got expired and i went to the embassy for help
they told me to bring certain amout which i dont have now cos i have use the money i have with me to pay the lawyer before i have the inheritance 18:59

AHA, she needs money

larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 19:02
slksbkk 19:03
what is the inheritance?

larrywilliams2000 19:04
the entitlement that belongs to my father where he works
larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 19:05
slksbkk 19:05
and what are this entitlements? I believe you did not come the whole way from USA for getting nothing

larrywilliams2000 19:06
yes i have it now
but the problem now is that i have to renew my ticket and i dont have the money with me again cos i have spend all the money i have on the inheritance 19:07

slksbkk 19:08
what are this entitlements?

larrywilliams2000 19:09
well........it all cost 14,450 us dollars
but i cant handle it all alone\ 19:10

Here she speaks about some costs! but not about the entitlements. Also I am not sure if the word entitlement is correctly used for a cheque in my Hands. (see below!)  I just would say I got a cheque and not that I have a entitlement to a cheque.

slksbkk 19:10
why are you not just answering my question?

larrywilliams2000 19:10
i am still small for it
that what/. 19:10
i am here talking with you 19:11
slksbkk 19:11
but not answering my question

larrywilliams2000 19:11
what is that?

slksbkk 19:11
what are this entitlements you speak about?

larrywilliams2000 19:13
oh...i just told you the cheque of 14,450 was given to me to take back to the state to cash it and i was given all the nessary details that i will have to take to bank to have the money when i reach there

slksbkk 19:14
you did not say anything about a cheque, but (I copied the next sentence to show her what she was saying)
          larrywilliams2000 19:09
          well........it all cost 14,450 us dollars

larrywilliams2000 19:15
yes i mean all the amount on the cheque

slksbkk 19:15
show the cheque to the embassy, that is a proof that you have some money and can pay them back if they help you.

larrywilliams2000 19:16
they told me that they cant do that...i have show them..but the said that the only help they can rendered is to get the amount of 250 us dollars and they will help me
i swear with my late parents grave

slksbkk 19:20
so you must pay 250 US$ to get help from the US Embassy?

larrywilliams2000 19:20
i swear 19:20
they want to help me cos i am a citizen 19:20

see...i am a honest lady and i dont hurt people here... 19:21
i belive in truth 19:21
cos the truth set people free 19:22
slksbkk 19:22
I call a friend at US Embassy here to check how they can help you

larrywilliams2000 19:22

I really called a Friend and told him the story. He said just to shut down the chat. The American embassy would help it this would be real and so I told here than.

thanks very much 19:22
but they told me to pay here in the embassy here in nigeria 19:22
and they will get me out of here asap 19:23

what did he say? 19:25

larrywilliams2000 has buzzed you! 19:27
slksbkk 19:28
My friend says that the Embassy must help you, they may ask for some more evidence or for names of some people in USA which can confirm that you are from there.

larrywilliams2000 19:29
yes they did that here already and i gave them the photocopy of all the details that they need and that was why they decided to help me with just 250 us dollars

slksbkk 19:30
my friend said it should be possible to pay such a fee later at home.

larrywilliams2000 19:30
yes but they said i should pay it here and they will give me my flight details and i will get home safetly
please i will be very happy if you can help me and i will never forget you 19:31
that is how they do here in american embassy that is here in nigeria lagos state 19:31
slksbkk 19:31
Ok, I will tell you what I do.

larrywilliams2000 19:32
what sir?

slksbkk 19:33
I am now knowing that you are a Lady with a Mans Name, an american native with bad english, and right now in Nigeria the Paradise of Scamers
you want 250 US$ from me which: 19:33
1. you will never get 19:33
2. shows me that you are a scamer 19:33

These individuals have been wrongfully informing a lot of people via email on the internet that they have huge sums of money to be transferred from a foreign Bank Account. Also, they have confessed to loan scams, the UK National Lottery scam and Euro Millionaire Lottery Scams and have been demanding money from innocent people for purported claims of the said money.

They operated with a fake Security firms and Bank and courier and a lot of people have fallen victims to them in the past 3 years. One of them was arrested recently when they attempted to defraud an American citizen of $5.2m USD by the London Police and the Interpol working together to break the scam ring.  Our Investigation revealed that you paid out some money to these individuals over a period of time. We are happy to inform you that you can now claim back your money as well as your compensation.

We have already initiated proceedings on your behalf with the West African / Nigerian Government to ensure that as a genuine scam victim, you will not only recover your lost money but also you will be compensated for the financial and emotional stress you and your family may have passed through because of the scam.
