Sorry to hear that you were scammed. Please keep occupied away from computer.
The criminal is not YOUR scammer. It's a gang of young males operating from West African internet cafe and they scam hundreds of people and no one is single, exclusive for them. They support terrorism, drug and human smuggling so for sure you don't want them to be YOURS. They couldn't care less what victim has to say or feel. Victim is only a money machine or money mule for them.
You need to BLOCK them and IGNORE. Do NOT check on them, they are young criminals not a ladies from the photos and for sure you don't need them in your life. Please stay away from them and don't prolong your healing. You will feel better and find a real love one day but for this you need to get rid of illusion created by mafia. Good luck!
Confronting the scammer is WRONG!!! DON'T enlighten criminals with your wisdom. REPORT & BLOCK.
PHOTO VICTIM - "Do not confront the owner of the pictures, as they are victims themselves! You will only serve to further the terror and harm !" Silence Is Golden!!! I speak Polish.
