    I have been confacted by someone on an Internet dating site by the name of Philips Diego who is showing a lot of interest in getting to know me better. Could it be the same one mentioned in the previous emails. Interesting to note that he is also at a seminar in the USA at the moment.

    Unfortunately I came across your e-mail to late. I was caught the exact same why and for much more. I wish I listened to my inner self but I believed that the man truly loved me and he was persistent in devoting his undying love for me. He also send me a parcel from USA Texas, he was attending a seminar. Then Allen van Zyl from 1Time Courier Services phoned me and said that the package is at Cape Town Customs and I have to pay the R2500-00 for customs and the a day later he informed me that Customs require a further R7879.95 for insurance due to cash that was in the gift. I felt uneasy and searched on the internet, They have a web page which seemed legit at the time, I phoned Allen again and ask him how can I be sure that this is not a scam and he send a letter from 1Time Courier with a police stamp, the letter state that if not happy with services you have the right to take them to court and has a 100% money back guaranty. So why not trust them, Allen although had an English acsent, after payment and the proof was send through they requested a authorization letter from the person that send it to me and I am still waiting upon receiving the letter.The person that send me the so called parcel was Phillips Diego. I also borrowed the money from my mom and now I have to struggle to pay her back. Ladies beware, there is no such thing as a descent man anymore or person for that matter.
