It is definitely a scam I'm afraid, so do not send any more money as you will just lose it.

Please post all the email, Skype etc. addresses that this scammer is using.

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.

If you gave him any personal information regarding bank account or financial details contact you bank IMMEDIATELY and tell them you gave your personal information to someone who you now realise is a scammer.

if you gave him any personal information like addresses and date of birth then there is nothing he can do with it. don't respond to him anymore, set his emails to spam and he will soon go away
