    YOU ARE BEING SCAMMED!

    Don't send any more money. This is an incredibly common scam and you fell for it. Learn from it and don't make this mistake again.

    You won't be able to get it back. It's gone forever.

    Good luck with that. That money is gone.

    Where are you located?
    You sent the money probably by Western Union, right?

    There is no legal recourse. It's pretty much a live and learn lesson.

    They probably don't exist under those names. Was it Western Union?

    If you sent it by WU then you have absolutely no chance. You didn't even send it to a real person. The name you sent it to doesn't exist. They only need the confirmation number to collect the money and it can be done from any WU branch.

    I am always interested in how/why people fall for these scams. How did you first come into contact with this person?
