Heartbroken Grandmother loses $480,000 to three different ‘Lovers’
The sporadic loss of money can outcast anyone from the usual course of sanity. The same happened to this grandmother after she faced a series of murky lovers supporters of avarice. An old woman, who is also a grandma lost a staggering amount $480,000 to three separate online scammers. The scammers developed an online relationship with the old woman and let her develop the feelings of affection for them – then manipulated her emotionally to ask her to give them her money. The grandmother now preaches about the dangers that come along with cyber love.
She called herself ‘gullible’ and ‘brainwashed’ when she was under the influence of their scam-love; she went to extreme ends to fulfill the hungry appetite of her lovers overseas by selling her house for almost half a million dollars.
She said in an interview: ‘Maybe that’s what I was doing: buying love.’
‘When I think back now I think that’s what I was doing,’ she added.
She went as far as marrying one of the scammers, now that she realizes her mistake of the past she came to realization that ‘Men aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.’
This realization came after three different men scammed her.
The first of the bunch introduced himself as David Fisher: a charming gentleman from London, through his online profile.
He manipulated Suzie to get access to her bank account to buy a laptop, but eventually took $76,000 out of her account – which she inherited from her father and then disappeared into the oblivion.
The second of the trio introduced himself as an American Soldier with the name of Johnson Williams.
She went as far as selling her own hours to meet the so-called soldier’s monetary demands
‘I went along with it because I felt: ‘Wow, I’ve actually got somebody in my life now, and I’m committed to this man,’ she said.
But as it turned out that guy was also a scammer who was receiving money in the same bank account from five other women – the direction of money flow was to Ghana.
She may have thought ‘third time’s the charm’, but acted a little bit on the safe side this time – this time she found her love from Uganda, with a guy named Godfrey Kyungo. She went to Africa to meet him in person and then married him after sending him several thousand dollars in bank transfer.
But she came to the sad conclusion that this was also a sham for money and is looking forward to get her marriage annulled. She is working now to give awareness about such scammers.
‘These people are evil how they manipulate your mind,’ she said.
