Hello Robert,

I'm so sorry this happened to you. It's a very common scam and the first thing you should do, is report this to your local police, and then call the FBI, as they have an ongoing investigation into this type of scam from Nigeria.

Remember, a person can say they are 'anyone' on the internet and there is no proof of who they are or if they're telling the truth. Never send anyone money, no matter how much you 'think' you know them.
Try to date only local women, so you will see that they are who they say they are, if you're looking to meet people online.

I hope you didn't lose too much, and this person will be brought to justice!
