Sometimes you may be talking to someone totally different.If it's a "scamming cell", it's not uncommon for someone else to "work" anothers mark.I'm sure there are many more ways they have come up with by now to scam people.
I had noticed a distinct difference in the writing and language use on several occasions while chatting with "my guy". You'll often have times when they seem to have gone off line for a little while and then they are back saying, "I had business call" or "the internet is bad here".
The real reason is they are talking to more than one mark online at a time.
And of course they can't cash their ckecks because the banks there don't deal with American banks. WEEEEEEEEEEL first off if they are working for a big company they would be covered for all of this.
No major company is going to abandon their employees in a foreign country.
Unfortunately we have different catagories for these internet leeches, one being an individual who not only does it for fun but those who do it for business.
