Can anyone tell me if this person is real? I don't have time to research too much but here is what info I have found so far. Any help would be great. I have also used every photo search engine I could find and can not even find ANY of the 3 photos on their account.

Thanks in advance.... :D

Here is email header they are sending to my yahoo account which they first contacted me on Facebook and I will also include their Facebook account link:

Hi ummagumma,
welcome tho ScamWarners!

the email you sent the header of came from Lagos, Nigeria. If the person who sent it says otherwise you are dealing with a scammer even if she (actually a "he" sitting in a sweaty internet café) has not asked for money yet.
Some scammers patiently groom their targets for weeks or even months before "something dreadful happens" and they start asking for money.

Can you post the text of the first emails you received? We can analyse it to get more evidence.

EDIT: I noticed you posted your own email address within the header. Please use the "EDIT" button to delete it; it can be harvested by spammers and scammers trawling the internet.

It looks like a profile set up by a scammer. If you want specifics about why I think this, PM me.

Romance scammers will take their time getting you hooked on who they are pretending to be first as Katherina said.

Please do post up more information. Welcome to ScamWarners.

Thanks for all the info, and yeah I started to delete my info but was too lazy sorry. I have been workin on pcs for 16 years and had my share of this stuff. I first know something was wrong because of all the friends I have in like France, Netherlands and such.

First warning sign was I noticed they were typing with an "accent" and they had told me they were from the USA and moved to London in which I was thinking then why the accent, also I have friends there and they speak English fine lol. Big clue was because of a girl I know in Paris, she typed the same why, strong "accent" in words.

Second big warning was when I pretty much knew it was some punk is when they requested me as a friend on my messenger. I saw them on there and thought wth and said something as a test. Did know nothing about town claimed to be from in USA and when I said hey to them it took like 4 minutes of them asking questions to figure out who I was when they added me on facebook and messenger.

Well I'm sorry I just looked and all the emails have been deleted and emptied but I do have several more photos on my droid they sent and also a attachment they sent in .rar format which of course I did not open lol. Also just went to their facebook page and they removed one of the photos and I have it on droid.

Oh and also I blocked them on facebook and tried to report them but got some error message saying could not send report to facebook so they prolly need to know about this fool.

Anything I can do to help I will, I hate scammers, spammers, kid hackers and people that FWD emails as I'm sure you know why....even hate lamas :D

Just lemme know what I can do if anything to help.

The scammer probably deleted their Facebook account, that is why all of the emails / messages have disappeared. Also when you are "de-friended" all of the messages go away.

They may have discovered that they have been listed here too. Sadly they will be back with a different name and profile. They are like a bad rash, they just keep coming back.

Yes, I checked and the profile is still up. Because you can't see it when logged in, they most likely blocked you. Count your blessings that you are now blocked. ;)

The profile text is made of 2 mismatching parts, not made by the same person.
Here is one part for search.

love to laugh and enjoy funny situations. I enjoy traveling and the adventures of the outdoors. Getting away is important because I think everyone should see what else is out there.

The results speak for themselves. It is fairly easy to see the join when one half is literate and the other half is not.
The other part that is mismatch

One thing for sure this seasoned scammer isn't making fake profiles for its amusement but purely because it wants money. I have seen parts of the last text elsewhere and it somehow seems familiar.

As a general rule scammers always load profiles with cut and paste verbiage and tosh, when normal people hardly manage more than half a dozen words. The text below is pure cut and paste bilge. That is how scammers get caught.
