Happens all the time in Colombia as well, they either try to get them to become mules, or just suck em dry....

I had a 65 year old guy from the states contact me because he was told since I was half gringo I could help out around town...  So I tell him to meet me after work.

This dusty old guy shows up with a 25 year whore with a pair of bolt-ons and what appeared to be a black version of wonder woman's costume.

Seems he had met this fair young(busted) Colombiana on the internet and in a weeks time they had fallen in love.  He had transferred half a million into the country and wanted to buy some property and a few cars etc.

He told me they were going to put it in her name until they got married and then it could become community property.

I informed him that if you bring 200k plus into the country you can get an investors visa and I referred him to an immigration attorney.  He said no that would be an insult to her and he would do it his way. Guy spoke three words of spanish.

A month later he calls me and turns out he has bought a house, two cars, and a nail salon, all in her name, and before the ink could dry on the contracts, she has called the police and got a restraining order on him for domestic abuse.

I drag him over to the lawyers office and he explains the story and the dunb fark pulls 10k US out of his pocket and says "get my stuff back and it is yours."    I berate him because well 10k is 10k, and I would not even carry that amount of large in my pockets here, much so in Colombia.  A place where min wage is 250 USD a month.  We all could have been killed.

The lawyer tells him his best bet is to walk away with the loss, because such a large amount of money is involved that if he tried the first they would do would kill his attorney.

So a few weeks later I am in my local with my wife and here he comes in and tells me his going to call it a loss, and could I perhaps suggest on how to meet a nice Colombian woman.

I tell him to slow his roll, learn a bit of the language and I gave him a list of coffe shops, book stores, etc where educated Colombians hang out.

I suggested that there are plenty of gorgeous established Colombian women in their late 30s-50s with careers etc who would love a guy like him.

He says no I want a wife in her 20s and calls me a hypocrite and says "you are older than your wife".  I tell him"
a. I am Colombian
b. I speak the language
c. I courted her for 2.5 years
d. I am only 14 years older as opposed to his wants of 40 years over.

It is amazing how a bit of young tang will open an old guys nose up.

Just wanted to observe that the above comment was an exceptionally perceptive comment.

I was rooting for the professor, until the very end of the article when the content of the text messages were revealed. The big dummy isn't innocent.

And she's married...with a kid. I guess actually looking into her background was a little beyond Professor Sherlock.

i don't think he was being stupid.  he was just taking a very big risk for the chance of a very big reward.  there were two possibilities:  1) the suitcase was full of cocaine and he was going to go to jail, or 2) he was going to get to have sex with denise milani.  sure, it was a 90% chance that he was getting scammed, but a 10% chance of having sex with denise milani might have been worth the risk.

he should have demanded proof that it was actually her, though.  mail her a present and then ask for a picture of her holding the present, something like that.  he was stupid to just believe it was her based only on internet chats.
