This a definate scammer, tried to get me to send Western Union to Finland. Using a story his mother needed a kidney transplant. The name and address to send to was different-Pasi Pitkonen-Helsinki address. Now this name I came across on Google, apparently they are running scams for apartments as well. Since I wouldn't give him the money he wanted me to accept a check from a "client" here in the US. Won't happen, broken all contact with him.
His story was his name-Mark Anderson from the US, Pittsburgh, in comp sales. He traveled thru US and South Africa,UK for business. He was originally British and adopted. I asked for personal info but it was all fake. Also wanted to add since researching the IP was found to be from LAGOS, LAGOS Nigeria.

UPDATE____So now I received a check in the mail today. I've intentionally called him a scammer, he still is
emailing me. I'll post the letter and check here, tho I'm not sure if I should post under fake checks?
