Strolling with a skeptical biochemist
I send money via Western Union to these "Missionarys" in Nigeria who had a house in Costa Rica. It was $400 that I sent to them and they said they would send the key via DHL. I sent the money on Friday, was told I would get the key on Saturday. Key never came. Sunday DHL was closed. I was told I would get it first thing Monday morning or later that evening. Monday was "The Birth of a Prophet", they didn't send the key because DHL was closed. I was told I would get it the latest Monday night. Key never showed up. I received an email from these scammers on Tuesday morning, telling me I had to send $250 to them to pay for the DHL Courier Service. I refused asked for my money back. I received an email a little while later saying, "Dear #### you seems don't understand what am talking about who told you we are from Nigeria you don;t have to judge us at all. Please get back to me if you will need your money back then i will go for our key back from DHL." I emailed them back telling them to send me my money back. I haven't received any further emails from them. They even created an email account posing as "DHL GLOBAL NIGERIA" the reason I found out it was them, is because if you haven't noticed in the previous email I copied and pasted, it has horrible broken English. This is the email from "DHL GLOBAL NIGERIA" "DHL NigeriaPhone.+2347023194914Attn: Miss Heather Denise Young Poole,We hereby contact you as regards property key and Document.

The phone number was copied and pasted by my fiance' in a smamming website database and came back as a Nigerian prepaid number. I am trying to move to Costa Rica, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to. I have nothing but maybe $30 to my name. I don't know what else to do.Thank you,Heather
