    • I have been corresponding with Dammy Johnson on yahoo. This has been going on for several weeks. Originally I bookmarked her profile on Asian People Meet and then she responded. I wasn’t on Yahoo at the time and in a week I set up a Yahoo im account.In her emails there weren’t a lot of facts. She was an ARTIST, a model and a buyer in art in Europe and Africa. Her mother was sick somewhere in Africa and she was attending to her in the hospital. Tonight after reading your information about dammy johnson I found her on Yahoo and started iming. Her diction varied every time I wrote. Somethings she was quite fluid and articulate and other like tonight she was barely literate in English. Examples: i told u i need ur help,u ran away that bad of u, its abt my mother etc. Then she said that she needed some money for drugs that the doctors needed to treat her mother. I told forthright without asking how much she needed that I didn’t have any funds. She then disengaged. The yahoo contact I was using was johnsondam101@yahoo.com. Her emails back to me were flowing about her love and adoration for me and never said very much about her presence or her past. It wouldn’t surprise me if I saw a Nigerian team in action. Some members of the team were quite articulate and others could barely keep up. I want to thank you all for forewarning me. I’m sure they will change the name and picture next time.

  3. I found her picture on the migente latin dating site. She introduced herself as Christiana Peach Ochniji but her e-mail comes up Christiana Solomon. We have been writing for a bout a month and now we are speaking of marriage and her traveling here to St. Thomas.

    I am starting to get hints that she needs money and i want to here back if she has a history of extorting money from men.

  4. Watch out for someone named Dammy Johnson “allisgoodfordammyjohnson@yahoo.com”. “She” found me on a dating site, emailed me thanking ME for an email I sent her (I didn’t), and we started talking (I wanted to see if she was scamming me). Claimed to be from Newark, NJ, and bi-racial. Said her mom is White, her dad Black. Claimed her dad died in an accident. Claims she is now in Nigeria, taking care of her sick mother. Didn’t talk to me for even 20 mins. before asking me for money. Got defensive when I started asking questions. When I declined to give money, told me she wanted to talk anyway, and money wasn’t what she wanted. I continued talking to her, asking many questions, until she told me she couldn’t talk to me because I don’t trust her.

  5. Live is vanity upon vanity. A man is born yet he will die. God wants us to know that he created us for His glory and not for sin.Jesus Christ came so that we will have salvation from sin to life. The question is;is our life corresponding with the purpose of God’s creation plans?What type of life are you living? For God or for for the devil? Make your plan with Jesus Christ. Hebrew 12,John 1,John 3.

  7. I joined a Christian dating service, I have already been asked for money by two men from Africa. The first said he lives in the states and was building a bridge in West Aftica. After talking a few weeks he told me he wants to come to the states but his money is tied up in the US and he can’t access. He asked me to send hims $2500. When I told him no. He said he had his son with him and robbers came and shot his little boy in the legs and asked for money for hospital bill. His name is Ryan Mc Coy

    The next one goes by Shamme Williams. E-mail and IM wshamme@yahoo.com. He said he lives in Stockton CA and I live in Sac. He could never meet me because it was too far. it’s 40 miles. Then he said he had to go to London on business and that’s the first time he gave me a phone #. He said he was leaving London to go to Africa on more business and that’s when he came in for the kill. He said a taxi driver took off with all his belongs wallet included and begged me to send money.

  8. I would like to know if anyone has heard of someone called Edward Graham. He goes by ediefortheone (yahoo IM) and also uses ediefortheone@hotmail.com and honeywellforyou.com
    We met 2 months ago on this dating site and things seemed fine, if moving a little fast. Then, it was time for him to come home (he said he was working in Germany and then Nigeria). He said he had problems getting paid (he said he was an IT engineer but of course never gave very many direct answers) and said he would need help getting back cause the money for the work his company did wasn’t coming through. He asked me to wire money to him (knowing I had lost my job recently) and also mentioned sending checks from his client to my bank to cash and then send money to him (advance fee scam). When I said no he kept calling me (about 15-20 times in one day, and of course I did not answer). Also, this guy is on MiGente, Large Friends (until they pulled his profile), My Space and one other site. I would NEVER send any money to anyone I did not know, but I could see how people might do this, as these guys are great at what they do. They can be very convincing. Oh yes, he sounded British on the phone, which the police said is VERY common as lots of these scams cross between the UK and West Africa. Of course, now I am being given the guilt thing because “I don’t care enough to make sure he gets here to meet me.” Whatever. Anyone hear of this guy? He also has a “suspicious” job posting on a recruiter site, which lists something about working 3 or 4 hours weekly and making 3000. monthly.

    • It is obviously easy for you to be free from being duped. First you must receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. As this is done, you would become legally positioned by God to here from Him. God infuses divine sensivity into His children the way that while evil is yet afar off, they would pick signal of what to do.

      This is actually time for all races in the world to yield to the true God, whose name is JEHOVA, maker of heaven and earth. He sent us Jesus Christ, His only begotten son and express word personified in John 1.

      A lot have been duped as a result of their own greed. How can you pay money from your own side as to receive a huge share of the main money in question. Beware also that many citizens of other nations are using Nigeria identity tdupe many of their victims. This is because they feel that Nigeria is a great nation blessed with resource; they definitely know that people who are light weight, would believe them. Do not be deceived , Nigeria is a sweet place to be. Fraud did not start from Nigeria. Beware of people from anywhere and be wise in Jesus Christ.

  10. I recently received and e-mail from dammy johnson with the same story of being a student at rutgers and in nigeria taking care of her mother. at first things seemed fine then she said her mother had died and she needed $1500 dollars to get the casket to bury her. being a very skeptical person i checked the rutgers student directory and of course found no one by that name. She is now using the screen name honesty is my pride, and has a profile on e personals and military dating online that i have found so far and they all have different ages and photos but most of the other personal data is the same.

  12. I was recently scammed by a man going by the name of David Miller his email is: davidmworld247@yahoo.com. The worst part of all of this is that I contacted the FBI 2x and was told that they had never heard of his scam so I fell for it and lost almost $2,500.00 before I finally was able to convince myself that this was a scam. If only the FBI had heard of his scam maybe I would still have my money! Here is the scam – he claimed to be a true christian man from New York and was going to Nigeria to work with the orphanages and help save those poor little children, once there he couldn’t “get” the hotel to take a money order for the payment and needed help to pay his bill. Then after I paid the bill he was “allegedly” detained at the airport because his visa had expired. He even had an alleged officer contact me with the details and I could hear commotion and crying in the background – it was awful. The phone number I was given to “contact” him at was actually a government office/possibly a detention center. It was well planned and well executed until I began to see the light and realized that it was all about the money. When he wanted an additional $3,000.00 I had had enough and contacted the US Embassy and the FBI again. This time they were more helpful and told me do not send anymore money! I am praying that this corruption will stop so that other women don’t get duped out of their savings like I did.
