American Man Sends Over $100,000 to Wife in Nigeria He has Never Met



Stephen Nigerian man and wife


A 53-year-old American man has sent $100,000 to a woman in Nigeria over the past 29 months, whom he claims is his wife.

The man, Steven, met the woman named “Kelly” online, and according to him, they got married legally in Nigeria Daily Mail reports. However, they have never met in person, and they mostly communicate online.

Kelly told Steve that her parents had died in a car accident in Ohio in 2012, and that she was to inherit $25.6 million from her dead parents. And so, Steve is assisting her financially until she gets her inheritance.

According to reports, he sells his plasma (a yellowish liquid that has to be separated from blood) twice a week in order to send money to his beloved wife in Nigeria.

Kelly is said to be currently living with James, her attorney.

Steve, an accountant was recently featured on the talk show, Dr. Phil, where he revealed his rationale for sending money to a woman he has never met.

“I’ve not met Kelly, but it doesn’t matter. I love her just the same. She has an inheritance coming, and I’ve always wanted to be a millionaire, so it’s like a match made in heaven. I just love her. She is very beautiful and warm, kind, caring and loving,” he said.

He also stated that he had tried to meet his wife once before but things didn’t work out. Steve claimed that she had been in South Dakota at the time. However, when Dr. Phil’s team analyzed the e-mail correspondence that was exchanged between the couple during that period, it was discovered that the IP address was from Nigeria.

During the course of the show, it was also revealed that Kelly is not the only one he sends money to. He revealed that he has several pending “inheritance deals” with clients from all over the world, and that he expects that those deals will make him a big millionaire soon.

Steve’s sister, Tammy, is worried about him, and has advised that he discontinue his relationship with Kelly.

“My brother is delusional. Kelly could be a Nigerian man behind a computer.”

Here is a short clip from the show. Watch what happens when Dr. Phil gives Kelly a telephone call:

      BTW, the girl he was corresponding with according to the full version of the video is an American girl name “Kelly” from the American state of North Dakota. According to him, Kelly lives in Nigeria now. She is going to inherit Millions of Dollars in Nigeria!!!!. So, at least in this case, this person is NOT Nigerian, according to the full version of the video. Watch here

    I can’t believe people still fall for 419 scams. In any case, how do you legally marry someone you have never met? If this story is true, then he has lost touch with reality.

    I have said it before. I cannot feel sorry for this kind of mugu……His greed drove him to fall for classic 419.

    Now if his identity was stolen and used to open credit cards or his credit card was stolen and someone went on a shopping spree, that would be a different story. This is just pure greed wey don backfire.

    This man is not a mugu o. This is evil spirit tingz. Possession in high places. He has several pending inheritance deals….Biko did he marry all of them? Maybe I now have to grudgingly accept that true true 419 people can jazz their victims and that their jazz can cross water. He is not silly. He has to have been jazzed. No. This is not happening! Tufiakwa!

    OK Steve is stupid, And he is a thief. so of this guys that are duped deserve it. instead of him to go work hard and make money he is hoping that someone makes him rich with inheritance. stupid lazy man. i said it the greedy ones are the ones who get duped. all that money he sent to Kelly if he had used it to start a business he might have been a millionaire by now.
    And again it is impossible to give blood every week or 2 week that is impossible. the people taking the blood will not even let you do that.

    Baba oo.! Do folks still fall victims for this shit in this era? Sucks for him and bless his heart. I remember in 2007 when I was a freshman in college, the first thing my Professor asked me was “what’s 419?” I acted like I didn’t know not knowing 3Nigerians used her credit and she wasn’t playing with these unknown frauds. After 3months, they were caught…Kelly is definitely a born 9ja man behind the lappy lol.. He’s a crock too himslelf.
