How My Girlfriend Scammed Me After Breaking Up With Her Ex
Please keep my identity private. I had an instant crush on Eve (not real name) when we met in the mall about a year ago. She was shopping for some clothes and the shop POS had debited her twice and she was clearly frustrated waiting for a reversal.
The store promised it would be reversed before the end of the day but she was still worried. I overheard their conversation and I promised her it will reverse. I work in the bank and I know how these things work.
Eve was so grateful and we exchanged numbers. just in case she still had issues with the fund reversal. I actually took that opportunity to get her number and toast her seriously after that. She told me she was in a relationship but it was not serious.
She allowed me play with her because she wanted to know who is more serious about her. Two months after, she broke up with her dude and began dating me full time. I was in love. The relationship was fun and very exciting time of my life.
In December, Eve wanted to buy a car cos that was her goal before the end of the year. She wanted a Mercedes benz e series. It would cost her like 6M and she had like 3.5M. she asked me if I could help her secure a loan from my bank and I said yes.
However,while we were processing the loan for her,she did not have the major requirements for the loan and I being a good boyfriend,I took the loan on her behalf. I took a loan of 2.5M and gave it to her to get the car. According to her,she had a cousin in US who would help her get the car.
About 2 weeks later,she sent me pictures and update that the cousin has bought the car and was getting ready to ship it down to Naija. But there was a delay cos of covid-19 shut down. So for over 2 months,we kept waiting for the car.
Three months later,my girlfriend came crying to me and said she has not been able to reach the so called cousin for almost 2 weeks. That his number is switched off and all efforts to reach him prove abortive. I was like,ok,so if he is your cousin,tell your family…maybe they can find a way to reach him.
It was at that point that Eve told me that he is not really her cousin but her ex boyfriend. The same guy she broke up with to be with me. Obviously the guy had relocated back to US after they broke up and she reached out to him to help him buy a car thinking they were still friends.
Sounds crazy right? So,its either EVe is the dumbest woman on earth to trust her ex with 6M after a break up…or both of them have just tried to scam me. I am not accepting this crap from Eve. I have told her to just return my 2.5M before the end of August 2020 or I will eb involving the police.
Her mother and siblings have called me several times to beg. All claiming that Eve made a mistake but she never connived with her ex to defraud me…that Eve over trusts and that is why she even trusted her ex to help her get a car.
Eve is begging me to forgive her and give her a second chance. She promised to pay the money back if I give her some time. But how do I still be in a relationship with someone who lied and told me she was dealing with a cousin when she was dealing with her ex?n what if she actually tried to defraud me with her ex? I am having serious trust issues with her.
Should I just be calm and wait for her to return my money or should I involve the police? is there any hope for the relationship for us anymore? I need ya”ll advise.
