Sometimes being gullible can cost you a fortune…
Read the following story below:
A 48-year-old west suburban Naperville man never met his online girlfriend, but he didn’t mind sending her cash — $200,000 over about two years. The Naperville man told police he started the online courtship about two-and-a-half years ago. His name hasn’t been released.
Since the relationship began, he’s wired about $200,000 to her at bank accounts in Nigeria, Malaysia, England and the United States. The Naperville Sun reports that the man had an ID from the woman that was a sample driver’s license from Florida.
The jig was up this week when the man contacted police to ask for their help in rescuing the woman, who he said had been kidnapped in London. Police say the man “was in disbelief” when an officer told him his girlfriend didn’t exist.
We’re not quite sure what possessed this guy to give a person he has NEVER MET in person that type of money especially if their bank account was in NIGERIA of all places. SMH… Somebody pray for the fella! He really needs it.
