Here is a piece of email I have received from his Barrister.
Hello Madam, we were just told that he needs to pay for his flight ticket and BTA money before his documents can be approved because his documents supposed to be out today so he can get it over there in Syria by Monday, so we waiting on the payments of his flight ticket and BTA money so his documents can be approve by the UN Madam. We met on a dating site 2 months ago and he said he was going to buy a house for us and get married to me when he comes back to Australia.
I haven't responded yet because my alarm bells went off straight away. But I told him I didn't have it and he asked if I could send him a credit card.
Why would an orthopaedic surgeon be contacting me so far away. I told him my situation and it was impossible and why would he be asking me for help when you're a doctor. He told me because of being in the UK Bank of America closed his account and he doesn't have access to it.
He claimed that his wife died from polycystic kidney disease 8 years ago and he was ready to move on. Said he was from Washington DC, but lives in Baltimore, MD. His English was broken and he seemed confused by situations happening in the US (such as insurance stuff, in regards to hospitals). He had way too much time to spend on Twitter for being a military doctor dealing with a suicide bomber a couple of days ago.
His profile pic is a very handsome man, caucasian looking. Things went great the first few days until he started asking me for money telling me his child has malaria and needs to medication.Dr Edmond Phillips ..I played along..before he could even try to scam me.. PLEASE LADIES TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS SYNDICATE OF NIGERIAN SCAMS..one can love you if they don't even know you or saw you in real life..... Also his 15 yers old son James in bording school phoned me with strange accent (it did not American accent at all).He emailed me sometimes and called me mum..his email title showed the name "Patricia"??If he asks you to file for vacation time and tell them you were his fiancé, don't do it as it will cost you money and it all goes to his pocket. So this man sent me a couple of DM's on Twitter before I finally responded.If you need to request time off he himself can do so without any money coming out of your pocket. He was clearly trying to charm me, sending me a video of that titanic song and stuff. This man claims he is a doctor with the UN in Afghanistan. Plans on retiring when he is done in 15 months, and opening a hospital.
