I meet this guy at mingle2 online dating site about six months ago. According to him his name is Eddie Philip from Lagos Nigeria. He said he is working at (B W GAS) Norway Japan as a seaman. He told me he works for three months on sea and go for one month time off in Nigeria. So when he came back to Nigeria he asked for phone number I gave him and he called and we talked. After two days he told me on phone that his mum and sister are hospitalized .After about one week he said his best died and he joined the his friend to take the corpse home . After about four days he said his nieces is going back to school. The next time he said he brought some people to Nigeria to buy crude oil from Nigeria government. I was now convinced that he is a scammer just looking for away to steal from me. He asked me to come and see him in lagos and to borrow him money to take care of busniess partners until they finished negotiating with Nigeria government. When he found out that he can't dupe me he became angry and told me that he is a dangerous scammer and they two him and a lady . That they are experts in scamming busniess. This is his mingle name eddyphils 33 years old man from Sakai, Japan(BW GAS/NLNG) Norway. This is his phone number (2348060420255 ). I will also attach his pictures . I was lucky because I was sensible enough to he was lying . What of the innocent out there please be warned and play save.
