Remember above when I asked for more pics of Gabriel?  I'm guessing he doesn't have any more of the man in the picture.  The scammer decided to switch pics and hope nobody noticed.  He wasn't so lucky.

Gabriel quickly signed off after receiving the info.  The next morning, he took the fake info to Western Union and left empty handed and extremely disappointed...

Joyce T Nelson: I took the money back after I found out about your dad
Gabriel  Collins: i am confused here

Joyce T Nelson: I'm putting the pieces of your life back together
Joyce T Nelson: You should be thrilled

Joyce T Nelson: This should be great news for you!
Gabriel  Collins: nope babe becos that is not my DAD
Joyce T Nelson: IT IS
Joyce T Nelson: 100%
Gabriel  Collins: that is a wrong person babe
Joyce T Nelson: I asked a speech pathologist.  He confirmed it
Gabriel  Collins: i jsut had to tell u that at the first place if u where wrong
Joyce T Nelson: No.  I am right about this
Joyce T Nelson: You are just in shock because this is such amazing news
Gabriel  Collins: nope babe

Gabriel  Collins: i have my dad real pics
Gabriel  Collins: i had to do that if u where real babe
Gabriel  Collins: and now i confirm that u are real that is why i gave u and shown u that mr busicuit is my dad

Note from James:  It's kinda hard to follow what Gabriel's trying to say here, but here what's going on in his head...

I convinced him that his father is "Mr. Biscuit,"  spokesman of Milkbone dog biscuits.  For the record, the spokesman is not really referred to as "Mr. Biscuit."

Now that Gabriel believes that his father is the man on the Milkbone box, he has no choice but to change his story.  He is trying to say that this was all one big test.  He wanted to see if Joyce was really from the U.S. so he used popular spokesman "Mr. Biscuit."

Gabriel  Collins: let me send u my dad pics babe
Joyce T Nelson: Okay
Gabriel  Collins: i know that my dad is dead
Joyce T Nelson: Okay.  Corpse pics will be fine
Gabriel  Collins: now babe i see that u are a trust worthy woman
Joyce T Nelson: Yeah
Joyce T Nelson: I am trying to look out for the best interest of your family
Gabriel  Collins: and u are for real.....i myself know that i am showing u mr buscuit pics as my dad
Gabriel  Collins: i wanted to know if u will get to know that
Gabriel  Collins: cos everybody knew him very well and he his popular babe
Joyce T Nelson: Yes. Very popular
Joyce T Nelson: He's America's most beloved human pet food model
Gabriel  Collins: i know babe ok
Gabriel  Collins: so he hid not my dad babe
Joyce T Nelson: I've seen his ads so much, he almost feels like MY dad also
Gabriel  Collins: lol
Gabriel  Collins: that is not my dad babe
Gabriel  Collins: let me show u my dad pics
Joyce T Nelson: We'll see
Joyce T Nelson: I'm waiting
Gabriel  Collins: ok babe hold on
Joyce T Nelson: Okay
Gabriel  Collins: but will you believe me
Joyce T Nelson: I will need to see the pictures to know for sure
Gabriel  Collins: ok



Gabriel  Collins: that is my dad babe
Joyce T Nelson: Do you think I'm an idiot?
Gabriel  Collins: how do u mean babe
Joyce T Nelson: This is not Mr. Biscuit
Gabriel  Collins: yes i told u
Joyce T Nelson: And he's not your dad
Gabriel  Collins: this is my real dad
Joyce T Nelson: No.  That's not possible
Gabriel  Collins: yes babe
Joyce T Nelson: You are supposed to be 41
Joyce T Nelson: This man barely looks 40, but he's standing in front of a recent model car
Gabriel  Collins: this is my biological father
Joyce T Nelson: That would mean that your father sired you when he was 3
Joyce T Nelson: And it's biologically impossible for him to be your biological father
Gabriel  Collins: but i told that i came to nigeria due to what happen to my dad
Gabriel  Collins: how
Joyce T Nelson: Yeah
Joyce T Nelson: I bet your dad fertilized an egg there
Gabriel  Collins: how do u mean babe
Joyce T Nelson: I mean you were born there
Joyce T Nelson: and you live there
Gabriel  Collins: oh babe
Gabriel  Collins: are u kidding me hun
Joyce T Nelson: No
Gabriel  Collins: i need you to belive me and trust me
Joyce T Nelson: No
Joyce T Nelson: I can't even trust that you really are the kid from Small Wonder



Gabriel  Collins: oh no babe
Gabriel  Collins: u need to believe me babe
Joyce T Nelson: You are not worthy of my time anymore
Joyce T Nelson: Goodbye, Mr. Ojomson
Gabriel  Collins: pls just one chance Hun

Note from James:  It took him a minute, but he then realized that I called him by the name that I suspect is his real name, Tobbie Ojomson.

Gabriel  Collins:  bRB you are pissing me off
