But when I checked out the bank info that he gave me, it was very suspicious. Why would he even be doing this and not asking for any money, and sending me gifts? I have been lied to way too much by way too many people. So then the next day he needs me to send him to get one because he needs to eat. It's fine but he keeps asking and I keep telling him I don't have it and then that he met a girl that was poor with no money which is true but I'm just a simple girl.
I'm still telling him I have no intentions of sending him any money whatsoever but he still is telling me can you help me please and can I get a job to help him for just the week so he can come home. He comes off really strong, hypes you up but he's fake and you can smell it from a mile away.

I wrote "Goodnight" in Flemish and he didn't understand. I was very cautious and didn't give him too much information as I wanted to play it cool at first but I just decided to report and block Originally contacted on FB and then asked to go to Google Hangouts (which I did).
