hello, first post here.
i came to this site as a result of Googling the name Rose Phillips. she is mentioned in a now closed thread so i have to open another.
Rose Phillips messaged me on Myspace and told me she wanted to get to know me. she gave me her e-mail address and we started coresponding. we then started using messenger. she claimed to be from Maryland, USA but was living in Lagos, Nigeria with her grandmother. she was a successfull fashion designer, studying fine art at Lagos university. she would love to meet me.
i was immediately suspicious that she called my handsom as she had never seen a photo of my face.
i was even more suspicious that she evaded any questioning about Maryland, or surfing which she claimed was a hobby. and that she lived in Nigeria with her granny. her written english was terrible.
within 24hours she was asking me to send her air fare so she could come visit, next week!
this was yesterday, luckily i Googled her name and came upon this forum and other sites all with stories from people less fortunate than myself.
from what i can gather she may use the names Jane Phillips(sometimes philip), Rose Williams and others.
i reported her to Myspace admin, along with Jane Phillips, who aproached me a day before and they were both immediately deleted. good old Myspace.e-mail address: email@example.com
just want people warned. i wasnt conned, maybe only because of this forum
