I worried that my friend is being scammed by someone or multiple people posing as a celebrity. Im not sure what site she was originally contacted on but I know she communicates with a man via the hangouts app. She was asked by the celebrity to send money to an orphanage called Lawson home in Nairobi Kenya. Later she was told she was going to be sent gold via sealand shipping company. The people she's been asked to send to are Ogbeiwi Lawson uhunoma who is the orphanage director.

Igbaifua Pius Ezekiel
Christopher Inotu
Christine m.Pfiater Ingram
She was asked to send money through western union or moneygram.Christine is the only person from the United States and is supposedly the wife of his friend who she needed to send money to so it could be sent to sealand shipping company. Everyone else lives in Nigeria or Kenya. She has recieved a call from this +234 816 909 9642. I tried to call and text it back myself and it says invalid or not enough money in account for call text isnt sent, but its called her an shes answered. She is in love and thinks this person is in love with her they message and call her on the hangouts app they even agreed to speak to her mom and told her things it seems only celebrity or someone close to them would know. So is this a scammer, someone close to a celebrity trying to prank a fan or just someone who hates her messing around?

The fact that she has been asked to donate money to Kenya by an untraceable money transfer service and has also been called from a Nigerian mobile phone guarantees 100% that it is a scam.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Thank you for responding, i was so afraid of this because she is so mentally and emotionally invested in this relationship this is going to devastate her. Is there any way for me to alert western union or money gram about these people because i only know she's sent money to them i dont have her account info to log into the site and report it for her or the mtcn numbers. She refuses to believe its not the man she thinks it is and is in love with. Ive already looked up some of these peoe social medias and reported the accounts but their still up. What else can i do to help her. I confronted her again today and found out he's promised to come an see her but needs her to send money so he can get a flight from africa even though he's been paid for his concert he did there. Can you please warn others about these people i dont want anyone else to become a victim the way my friend has i dont know if she'll ever get over this or trust anyone ever again.

There is a "Sunday Osagie " individual here being used in romance scams .


https://m.facebook.com/MilitaryRomances ... 901055879/

Searching the name " Ogbeiwi Lawson Uhunoma" returns nothing except for this post .

It's a Romance Scam with a Fake Orphanage Twist . What is the name and location of this supposed Orphanage ?

Sunday Osagie is weird because shes suppose to be in Nigeria. I looked up Ogbeiwi and get a account for instagram and twitter thats @iam_biggysmallz.
but that could be a coincidence or someone with same name.

Additionally if you Google Kenya + orphanage, you'll receive a list of approximately 100 orphanages and " Lawson Home is not on that list .


If you search the Kenya yellow pages there is no such orphanage found.

I tried looking it up and got nothing. I looked up sealand shipping company and its a real company but you can't set up an account to do buisness unless you have a company that deals with shipping containers. So not sure how to contact them to let them know being used in a scam. Did a little digging in their messages and christine pfister ingram is from chicago.

And lastly if you're still not convinced it's a fake, you can search Registered Companies here on the Kenya Government Website.

It's an open and shut case of Nigerian Scammers stealing from the poor orphans of Kenya .

How despicable.

:bondage:


If you send them any money, you are funding a Criminal and possibly even a Terrorist Organization. Read the news .

I have no idea what my friends gotten her self into. Only know she has sent money through western union and money gram. So if any law in enforcement agency from the U.S or another country investigates and convicts the scammers will she and anyone else who has sent money through western union or money gram be convicted with them. Is it possible she's funded drug, child or sex trafficking I been reading through some messsages she was told the director has multiple orphanages in Kenya and Nigeria.
