She was very convincing and I believed everything she said.

The slight difference in Sofiya's technique compared to other scammers was that she answers questions in detail.

The Nigerians, in a 419 plan, came up with a fake contract to build an airport in Abuja.

They promised Nelson Tetsuo Sakaguchi a big commission in exchange for funding the contract.

The fraud was detected in February 1998 while Sakaguchi was on vacation, in the process of auditing carried out in readiness for the intended sale of the Bank Noroeste to Spanish banking group Banco Santander.

Inquiry revealed discrepancies in the bank’s books, with at least US2 million missing.

She even talked about some local issues and cultural matters too.

When I asked her why such a beautiful young lady is interested in me, she said that Russian men are alcoholics and that they do not respect women. I challenged Sofiya before she asked me for any money and said that her communication style fits perfectly into the "scam pattern".

Of this sum, US0 million had been transferred directly to accounts controlled by the Nigerians or through unlawful money changing operations conducted by Naresh Asnani (a British subject of Indian descent resident in Nigeria) and Ezugo Dan Nwandu (a Nigerian businessman resident in Enugu).

2Following the discoveries, civil actions aiming to recover the money were commenced in Brazil, Switzerland, Hong Kong, the United States of America and in Nigeria.

And then she joined an online dating site, hoping to find some companionship.
