African Scams!!! Beware!!!

Without going into too much detail, I was just scammed by a guy in the UK, leading to a supposed dealer in Cameroon. I was ripped off and re-scammed over and over until I wised up to the tune of about $1500. BEWARE!!! I have been targeted by these African con artists more than once. Basic line: If its from Africa, RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!! NEVER USE WESTERN UNION FOR MONEY TRANSFERS! They may have a legit TEL # and pics of the animals (GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH.) The offers they send may sound 100% legit, but they have ways of scamming you, you can't even imagine. I'm not a stupid person, but trusting and gullible. All have been reported to the FBI, so if you've suffered this scam, I'll tell you where to go for help. DO NOT TRUST EMAILS FROM THE AFRICAN POLICE, THIS IS ALSO A SCAM!!!
Heed this warning!

Lightbulb Hi adding the names of individuals per the BOI rules I didn't know

The first guy was supposedly a Brazilian in the UK, Mark Adams and the main scammer that took me was Emilio Noel Yung in Cameroon.
