    I went through a romance scam that originated from I met a man whose pic matched what I was looking for which was not a serious relationship. I knew nothing of these scams but I learned fast. He played on my religious beliefs and he was well educated in Christianty. His lie was very much believable. It went on for a year because I wanted it to in order to find out as much as I could. I have a wealth of evidence and there is not enough space to write it here. I am in the reporting phase right now. I do feel match has some liability here because I reported to them I had met 2 men who were asking me for money. Match refused to give me any information about their profile. Said it was confidential. How are women to avoid a very much planned scam if they are not warned with the truth. He followed me with 4 fake profiles to facebook when I cut off contact the first time. I had an alias and he penetrated Facebook’s so called security and privacy settings and directly sent me messages while using yet another name and profile. just bi-passed the fb acct and requesting friendship. However I knew his writing anywhere. I could pick his out in a room full of Nigerians. For a year I played his games cause I want him caught. Yes I have suffered emotionally. If you have any advice for me or can help in any way, please contact me.
