hi, i have been chatting via bb pin with a man named Jerry Jason (Olivas Jason Jerry on facebook) from firstly Illinios and then Texas. We have been chatting for nearly two months. He has asked me to pay money into wetern union transfer for a plane ticket and visa for him to join me in south africa. He has given the name David Cater, Baltimore as the recipient. This is apperently the travel agent. i requested the name of the travel agent and he has not answered. He called me from a public phone stating it is too expensive for me to call him. The only info i have is his bb pin. When he called it sounds like a voice box.

STOP! This is absolutely a scam. Never send any money to a person you have met online - ESPECIALLY via Western Union.
Scam artists always want you to think that they need travel agents and that they can't buy tickets online like everyone else. They do this to drive up the cost so they can ask you for money money than just the cost of the ticket.
The fee for a visa to visit South Africa from the U.S. is less than $100. The scam artists would have you believe it's much more than this, because, again, they want to take the victim for as much money as possible.http://www.southafrica-newyork.net/homeaffairs/consularfees.htm
