Money problem

Hello, I am a finnish women living in Helsinki. I have a problem with a man who is working in Lagos, Nigeria. We started to talk with me in finnish daiting webside. First we talked about love and now the issue is money. I checked his e-mail address in a e-mail-searcher and found that this man livs in Sunnyvale, Ca. He is an american. He called himself geophysisist Michael Hoffman as in your earlier case. Now he wants 2750 e to Western Union bank because of his working problems. He cant leave the country not until he has paid for workers. His passport is taken away from he to the hotel manager. He needs money for his workers to get his passport back. His visa has closed so he cant use his own visa. He will scan his passport to me and will pay me back in 5 days. I told him to go to embassy but he said they wont help to get his passport back. I said it would better to put the money in his own bank account but he doesnt want. He is saying that he will come back to Finland, that he has lived here also. Is this safe if I see his passport copy? I need to know what to do. Thanks.

While a resident of AZ in 2009 I became the dating scam victim

While a resident of AZ in 2009 I became the dating scam victim of an American living in the Philippines with his Filipina wife. I gathered my evidence and moved to the Philippines and hired an attorney. Through the prosecutors/court we have obtained indictments/arrest warrants for the husband/wife team. The husband/wife team is still a fugitive in the Philippines. I have been led to believe by members of his family in TN that he is a fugitive from the law in the US. I have sought assistance from the US Embassy in Manila. Is there any way to get FBI resources involved? This involved a large chunk of my retirement savings - $28,000. Thanks.

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would

This may be a question about splitting hairs, but I would appreciate a thorough response. Harassment is a crime in the state of Maryland. So is stalking. A peace order (restraining order in other states) can be issued to a person accused of stalking or harassing someone. When a peace order is issued, the respondent is ordered to refrain from activities such as harassment and stalking. As it is a civil procedure, having a peace order issued is not the same as a criminal conviction, such as being convicted of harassment or stalking. In the interest of defining a truthful description of a person who was under a peace order, is it accurate to define that person as an "adjudicated stalker and/or harasser" or is that a false statement since the respondent was never convicted or "adjudicated" for the crimes of stalking or harassment. Thanks.
