Hi Michelle,

No the man I met online from Morocco's name is Abdou. His Travel Company is Trekking Sahara. Five starts on Trip Advisory. He has 13 brothers and sisters as his father married 4 times. At least 3 or 4 of his brothers works with the business. One travels around the world to buy silver and rugs. The travel company is across the street from their business downtown Marrakech.

When I met him it was because I needed help getting to Algeria. We are only friends, but he wants more. He warned me the Algerian would break my heart. He stated they tried to steal the Sahara Desert from them and they dislike one another and to please not mention him anymore.

I too have slid back to texting him on Instagram as I mentioned he unblocked me. What a nightmare. I understand too how they play off the emotions. Of late he has now called me 4 times, but if I answer once it is $2.99 a minute and he will once again take money out of my hands to continue to control me and my time.

He too says he is sick and wants to die. His mother no longer trusts him and he will soon be homeless, but I have 2 days to earn back his trust. I told him once I find out his scam it will go VIRAL and his only friend on Instagram I kept was the one who wanted an Educational Visa and he just threatened me that "their gang" will ruin my life forever! Nice! I just cannot believe I am so deep myself.

Praying for you that this too shall pass. XOXO Jackie
