James' Potential Victim:

Joyce Nelson A 43 year old widow.  Sure, she looks older than 43, but that's because she lies.  Her biggest lie?  She's not really a woman... She's really a 27 year old man.  However, the scammer doesn't not know this.
About the scammer:
Name: James Peterson / Roonie Man / Harry Williams
Email: roonieman45@yahoo.com
Location:  Lagos, Nigeria
Profile:  MySpace
Note:  I Googled "Roonie Man" to find out what that is supposed to mean.  I then found a site called RomanceScam.com that featured this scammer, along with dozens of ID's the guy uses.  The site warns "one of the most active male scammers, watch out!"

Late that night, I sent James the following email...


Hello James,

I'm sorry if I'm late.  I have sent the money and here are the claims details.

MTCN:  7003681580
Sender:  Joyce Nelson / 615 N. Front St. / Wilmington, NC 28403
Receiver:  Harry Williams / 30 Allen Ave / Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria
Test Question:  Who do you love?
Answer:  James
Amount:  $250

I hope to chat with you again later after work.  Take care.

Love always,

Joyce

The scammer came online early the next morning and received my message.  He then took the fake claims info and attempted to claim the nonexistent funds.   After suffering what was probably painful humiliation in front of his peers, he was forced to take the Western Union Walk of Shame all the way back to his internet cafe where he then sent  the following email...


Honney i was at the western union today and they said there was a mistake somewhere honney and i want you to call the western union that you sent it through and get the correct it my love,,Okay Love you and missed you so much will be Looking forward to talk to you soon....
 
James

He later sent the following offline messages...


James: (8/1/2007 3:13:24 PM): Hi baby
James: (8/1/2007 3:13:25 PM): I hope that you got mt E-mail
James: (8/1/2007 3:13:25 PM): my
James: (8/1/2007 3:13:40 PM): They said there was something wrong maybe you used a phone number also....
James: (8/1/2007 3:14:03 PM): I want you to call the western union to confirm it

James: Ohh my love
James: with who
Joyce: Another bully



Joyce: He wouldn't let me cross his street unless I did it
James: Ohh my love
Joyce: No...
Joyce: Owww my butt!

James signs off, apparently adding me to his ignore list.  RomanceScam.com says he's one of the most active scammers, but he's definitely not one of the brightest.  Just another gullible idiot forced to take the long and lonely Western Union Walk of Shame.
