Nigerian Scammer gets Duped by US-based Ukrainian (Photo)

The fake photo Kehinde used VS his id card

A US-based Ukrainian startup manager has outwitted a Nigerian scammer who was set on extorting money from him. Artyom Geraschenkov became acquainted with the fraudster, who was posing as a white female ‘Angelina Crane,’ via one of Russian social media sites.

‘Angelina’ told Artyom she was an American currently residing in Nigeria and asked if he could help her financially by transferring 50 or 60 US dollars a week. Mr Geraschenkov, who immediately understood the fraudulent motive behind his new ‘lady’ friend’s request, decided to play along and expose the scammer.

According to Naij, he replied by saying ‘Angelina’ was worth more than just $60 and suggested sending $500-600 instead. ‘Angelina’ happily agreed and sent her personal details necessary for making the monetary transfer – including the documents with 'her' real name

Church Confirms Pastor Creflo Dollar will Finally Get His $65million Luxury Jet

You may have heard the story a few months ago about an Atlanta-based minister who claimed he needed a $65 million private jet so he could "safely and swiftly share the Good News of the Gospel worldwide." But almost as quickly as Pastor Creflo Dollar asked his 200,000 followers to each donate $300.00 towards the purchase of a luxurious jet, the campaign vanished and was removed from his website.

But now, the board of World Changers Church International -- which also operates as Creflo Dollar Ministries, has announced it is ready to purchase the plane.
"We plan to acquire a Gulfstream G650 because it is the best, and it is a reflection of the level of excellence at which this organization chooses to operate."

Mistress Sues Ex-lover for Not Leaving his Wife

A retired media exec is being sued by his ex-mistress for refusing to leave his wife — who told him she’d rather “see them bury him six feet under” than let him go. So, because the scorned other woman couldn’t have her man, she wants $2 million instead.

Theodora Lee Corsell, 67, is suing James Greenwald, 88, for six years of unpaid work and because he wouldn’t cross his angry wife. The NewYorkPost reports that:
“According to James Greenwald, [his wife] Marilee told him, ‘I will see them bury you six feet under before I grant you a divorce. I’m the last Mrs. Greenwald,’ ” 
The equally retired mistress says she was both professionally and romantically involved with James, although he continued to live with his 77-year-old second wife on Park Avenue amid the six-year
