Name: Brenda Garcia
Address: Her 'Handle' on Yahoo Messenger is sweetdovebrenda, or sweetdove89101
Other Comments: Now listed on the IwantU.com dating site as a VIP Member (avg cost: $22. per month for VIP status, vs 'Free' for regular members, got to give her credit, as it adds to the vision that she's 'Real'. Says she's 5'8' tall, 27 yrs old, single. Wants to start a relationship.. don't they all.
Anyway, per my 'gut' feeling, I started the Net search, and found your Romancescams Site; I commend you for it. I was going through same and spotted her photo, per comment logged on 11/17/06, 20:08:57, a different pose, but same dress, and left my comment on that site at 00:21:45 re: her, which you then printed, Thanks. She originally had sent me add'l photos last weekend when I asked, so I thought that I'd share them for posting. Never have sent out $$ to her or anyone else for that matter, but by her comments in 2nd E-mail, saying in part, I quote (per her grammer), '
'But right now things arent fine wit me and dis could be stopping this relationship,i feel you can help me get things right but i think u might be mad at me to hearing this,so i would be needing your help.'...I always get a kick out of the way they write, sorta like the same as the way they talk. Good 'clue' is the word 'because', always typed as 'cos', normally found in their mail, as when you read the initial Profile or Bio on these Dating sites, the grammer is almost perfect. So I guess they get others to write the Site lingo. I'll have to admit, like most men, no matter how educated we are, a pretty nice body/face will almost get us every time, and with their forlorn stories awaking our compassionate nature, like helping a poor puppy, but our 'gut' feelings should never be ignored. In anything I do, I try to listen to these other 'feelings', and the saying 'been there, done that', then takes on a whole new meaning...Just thought I'd share, for the rest of you Guys out there.
Thank you all for the information posted on this site. This person who was identified to me as Natasha Cole. I joined a dating service (Seventhday Adventist dating website) where I made contact. We chatted for a few months when she ask for $300.00 to keep her internet going because she could not afford it. At the time, she made it sound so great when she wanted to meet. I sent her the money thinking if she ask for more then this is a scam. Sure enough she did. Thats when I hired a private investigator in investigate her. Thats when I was showed this website and other things.
She/He claimed that she was the CEO of Allan cole gold store, her late father store in Ikeja Lagos Nigeria. Her father died from a short illness in Nigeria and when the will was read, it stated that she must marry so that the store and the other properties can by put in the husbands name. She also claimed to be a church girl. So when I asked alot of question about the church, she could not answer them or it would take a long response to do so. This person is very pushy. She would always ask me when would i pay for her to come and see me and so we could get married and get the store and properties that the nigerian government seized because of back taxes. She/He claimed to be from Auburn Ca. where she left at the age of 10 when her mom and dad divorce. After that, her and her mom moved to London where she grew up and later moved to Nigeria where her mom was doing alot of church work there. She/He also claimed to have a business degree in Real Estate/Marketing. Be on the look out of bad grammer and missed spelled words. Always like to use 'COS' for the word because. This person is really good, but not that good if you pay attention on how and what she says.
I was a victim of $300.00. Don't let it happen to you. I hope my information was useful.

So this Brenda Garcia contacted me through Fling.com and She told me the same sob story. Usually when something sounds too good to be true that's exactly what it is. I googled her name while I was still instant messaging her and it brought me to this site. Sure enough the pictures all matched (cute girl!) and her story only had a few minor differences. Knowing that she wasn't real, but wanting to indulge my curiosity, I encouraged her to continue her story. She continued and eventually gave me an email address so I could contact the hospital myself. Here is the email I sent to the hospital (remember, I knew she wasn't real at this point but wanted to see what they would send back) and the response that I received in return:
To whom this may concern,
I'm writing for the sole purpose of establishing the identity and condition of Brenda Garcia in Ward 09. I am told that she requires a small amount of money to cover medical expenses incurred by herself and family. I would like to know the amount in US dollars that is needed to ensure her release and safe departure back to the USA. Please respond as soon as possible with instructions and an update of her status. I have also been informed that she is currently being denied food until her debt is settled. I do not expect you to provide for her, but would only ask that you would increase the amount of her debt equal to the amount of the cost of food she will require for her remaining stay under your care.
And the response:
GOOD DAY SIR,

SHE WAS RUSHED OVER HERE AFTER A GUN SHOT,I AM SO SORRY ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON WITH HER BUT I WISHED THERE WAS SOMETHING I COULD DO TO ASSIST HER ALTHOUGH I AM INCHARGE OF HER BUT I AM NOT THE OWNER OF THE HOSPITAL AS TOLD SHE GOT HERE FROM A MURDER INCIDENT WHERE SHE WAS THE ONLY SURVIVAL OF THIS INCIDENT AND EVERY OTHER PERSON INCLUDED IN THIS INCIDENT DIED AND LOTS OF STUFFS WERE STOLEN BY THE ARMED ROBBERS/HIRED KILLERS.SIR OUR MANAGEMENT WOULD TELL YOU THAT SHE IS IN PERFECT CONDITION AND SHE IS FINE BY HEALTH BECAUSE SHE ONLY HAD A LITTLE INJURY SCAR FROM THE GUN SHOT BY HER ARM WHICH WAS NOT REALLY SEVERE SO SHE IS OKAY AND FIT ENOUGH TO LEAVE THE HOSPITAL,BUT ALL SHE NEEDS RIGHT NOW IS THAT SHE IS OWEING THE HOSPITAL MANAGEMNT FOR HER HOSPITAL BILLS WHICH COSTS $200.00.

DOCTOR IN CHARGE
Well there you have it! Hope no one actually fell for this scam...
This here is Anita Larry. She got my IM and left me a message. I responded and she posted this picture. She claims she is a Nebraskan currently in England taking care of her ill mother. She has not tried to tap me for funds as yet, but I had a sneaky feeling about her credibility and googled her. I'm sure the fun is yet to come. What a waste of a pretty face and fine body.

I thought something was fishy about the girl who contacted me with the same scam line. She found my profile on My Space 'myspace.com/twang_daddy' where I don't have any thing about me on there, it's just a stupid story I posted in the 'About me'. But oddly enough she thought we are a match. I got the same story word for word only her name is Hope Bello at email@example.com.
Hope Bello: I'm seeking a serious relationship probably to find my life partner..When i went thru ur profile, I found out we are 99% match...I really liked all i saw on your profile and i feel we have great things in common But right now things arent fine wit me and dis could be stopping this relationship,i feel you can help me get things right but i think u might be mad at me to hearing this,so i would be needing your help ... ?
Hope Bello: Well age doesnt matters,what really matters is what we are sharing together cos age is just an amount of #
Hope Bello: Well this is what happened...my dad is a sailor and owns a sales bussiness which makes sales of Jewelries/textiles internationally.He makes sales within United States and European countries & also North African countries.He had a deal worth 570m $ in Nigeria at North Africa which he saved all his money against investing in this bussiness So he thought instead of going and coming,he decided to move with his family to Nigeria.So all bcos i had noone to love and care for me back in the states,i decided to join my family in going to nigeria,i had no man.So we all get set to go to Nigeria for a new life,but before we left the states my dad has sold our house and the rest of our properties
Hope Bello: On arriving at the airport in Nigeria around 9pm Nigerian time,we went to a restaurant to get something to eat but unfortunately for us my family was attacked & murdered(shot) at the restaurant so we were rushed by some samaritans to a hospital.I didnt realise all this untill i woke up in the hospital bcos I could not remember some certain things after then I asked after the rest of my family,the dr told me that i was the only survival of the incident except for the fact that only my mom struggles for her life and was in coma for weeks but died yesternite
Hope Bello: I dont know anyone nor anywhere in this country.My mom is scottish while my dad was adopted when he was young,so now i'm all alone.I am oweing the hospital a bill of 200$ so they did seize all my travelling papers and return ticket,saying I'll have to pay off before i can leave.I would be very gratefull and most glad if you can help me out of this situation and help me with an apartment or come and live with you back in the states.Or if you love me i dont mind to be with you for the rest of our lives
Hope Bello: The hospital bill is all i need to leave this country bcos i seem to have all my travelling papers and return ticket to fly back to you in the states but they are being held down over here by the hospital management.My family had an Inheritance account document in the states which worths 160 milllion usdollars,i cant be able to access the money from here .. i've to be there in person in CA to get it.As soon as you can get me out of here and im back with you in the states,i would go claim and use it to begin a new and happy life together.
Would you please help me out of this?
Hope Bello: Well i would want you to know that i'm still in the hospital right now,the dr gives me his pc to make use of and i sleep here.Since a day and half ago i had stop eating in the hospital bcos the hospital management are tired and wont wanna feed me anymore.You can get through the hospital management( St Pauls Hospital) on:email:firstname.lastname@example.org and #: +2348023431865 and i would be there to talk to you on the phone ok,or you can email to confirm all i had told you and more Just say your on behalf of the white lady by name Hope Belo in ward 09
