On 10/30/2017 I met a man by the name of Levine Shaffer through some lady named Marguerite Owens claiming he was her brother. She told me that he had taken an interest in me after seeing a picture of me before he left on a private mission in West Africa, and he wanted me to add him as a friend. Once we became friends and started our relationship he told me within 24/48 hours that he had fallen in love with me and for me to give him my number and leave Facebook. About a month into our relationship he asked me if I had a bank account so that he could have his money deposited into it because his employer was paying him via money orders he couldn’t cash. I refused to give him this information because im disabled and on SSI. Starting around 12/1/18 I started getting sent specific amounts of money wired to me from Lagos, Nigeria via Western Union to pick up and wire back to him via Western Union to a man named Jesse Ola. The address was Lagos, Nigeria 23401. At times the receivers names were changed. Eventually Western Union caught onto the fact that I was being scammed and put a block on me from wiring money to him for my protection. When I told my Scammer Levine Shaffer about this he suggested that I start getting him ITunes Cards in specific amounts of money. His request was usually between $150.00 up to $200.00 every month. I sent him over $4.000 in them. Eventually I had enough of it and finally reported it to my local Sheriff’s Office. DFC Burgess took my report. I also have have every reason to believe that Levine Shaffer was going by the name of a man "Jim Kennedy Blackwell" and Kennedy Blackwell Love Jim on Facebook asking other innocent women to marry him and open up a bank account so he could deposit money in it to help support them and their kids.He had pictures of Levine Shaffer and his daughter Kennedy on his page that Levine Shaffer sent to me. When I questioned Levine Shaffer about this he denied it was him, but let it slip out that he deleted the account. I also have every reason to believe that he is going by the name of a lady named Marianna Sanger on Facebook because one of my facebook friends got hit up by her and was sent the same exact message about Levine Shaffer I got from Marguerite Owens. I want him found and put in jail where he belongs.

I had a call today from a man that had an Indian accent saying he was with the CIA. I told him I forgot what that stood for and he said the Crime Investigation Association. He said he needed to talk to me, my husband and my grandson because we had committed a crime. He said he needed to meet with me and tell me what crimes they had committed. I hung up on him.

received an email that told me that I would receive a ATM card with 35.5 million dollars and I would have to pay for the certificate for the card to leave the country. I was told that President Trump already approved for the card to be released and all I would have to do is send the funds to this person.
