Willis, Texas
Not resolved

I received this email from "Jennifer." At the bottom, she offers her "father's" name, phone number, and email. I called the phone number from two different phones. Got a message that the subscriber "isn't taking calls at this time." Jennifer also sent me pics of herself, which I've included. In correspondence, I asked which university she'd be attending...didn't answer that question. I invited to skype...glossed over that one. I suggested friending each other on Facebook...she ignored the suggestion. I searched for her name on Facebook. It brought back a Jenny Cole who attended UNISA, but it wasn't the girl in the photos that this scammer sent me.

I highly the woman in the pic is the scammer. Most likely, your scammer is a Nigerian male.


Got the same exact email and pics, but it was Kate Jenny. Dad's email the same
