Help 2 people be together

$742 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 40 months
This is a love story about two people that want to be together. A 45 year old single father of 2 teenage daughters that lives in chester county, Pennsylvania. And a beautiful 22 year old girl going to school in Nigeria, both met on an on line. Dating service fell in love with each other. And now want to met in person after speaking to each other for 3 years. I need $3,000 to make this trip happen. So please help me find a way to her and help us make our dream come true. Thank you and be blessed. The money is me to buy a round trip plane ticket to Nigeria. The airport I would be leaving would be Philadelphia international airport to Lagos airport in Nigeria. Orbitz list the pricing from $1,200 to $2,500 depending on date and time.  The rest of the money would be for the fees needed for a 90 day finance visa after me and Emmanualle met. The visa requires us to met first in person. So that is what the $3,000 is for, the plane ticket and fees.

The reason why this campaign exists is I've had a lot of issues over the past 40 months. I keep on trying to get the money together on my own and something always happens always happens and I keep trying and I keep failing one of the problem is my health issues another problem is getting laid off and fired from jobs and the other problem is I'm still a single father of two children and that comes first.

Children need things and that's not an issue of itself and I'm not angry about it I'm a single dad and that's what I need to do so when the kids need something that has to come first when I lose my job and I have to pay my electric bill that has to come first my car payment has to come first I am struggling like the other 40 million people in the United States that are the Working Poor I would love for somebody to just send me a round trip ticket to Nigeria and I put that on Craigslist many times that somebody had the option of transferring airline miles which I heard is very rare.

But that's the issue of me racing the 3000 on my own I'm not asking me anybody to help me with my kids I make just enough to help my kids but just recently I was fired on August 20th and then I had my heart attack on October 7th and I just recently got a paying job this week and as much as I love Lyft it does not make enough to cover the bills but it gives me something.

I've been banging my head and going over my budget to try to afford this trip on my own and the numbers just don't work but I'm not giving up I was regionally supposed to be there in January if I didn't make enough money through this campaign and I would have updated and told everybody but right on my goal is March cuz I did just get this job last week so we'll see how I do it this job and what the actual pay is after they they take the taxes out and I'm still applying for more jobs but this campaign is 40 months but I do not want this to wait any longer I want this to get done I want to speak this into existence and any help I appreciate and that's basically the long and short of it like I said I'll delete any comments I consider negative because I cannot directly apply the comments but anybody can talk to me directly and I'll answer any questions you have buy Instagram is risky 687... and I always reply when somebody instant message me there don't be mean I'm not going to be mean back I'm just going to give you the most clear and straightforward answer I can thank you everybody have a pleasant day.

I'm going to State this again because I put this up I just deleted the comment and the reason why I deleted the comment is because I cannot respond to comments directly negativity I will not tolerate on my account and anything I can sit there negative I delete I do have rebuttals for people's arguments but since I cannot reply to them directly with the comment I have no choice but to delete the comment. If you'd like to debate me your point everything out on the issue you can email me or direct message me on Instagram which many people have before I my Instagram is risky687. I do thank everybody that supported me and Emanuella have a pleasant day

On this Valentine's Day I just wanted to thank everybody for their support that actually believes in love. With your blessings and your help this will be the last Valentine's Day that me and her are apart. And we both look forward to spending the rest of our lives together and I appreciate the people that Believe in Us thank you

Chris, as someone who was born and raised in a third-world country, not too far from Nigeria, I feel obligated to tell you that this is more than likely a scam. This woman is probably using you as a means to an end - her sole purpose being an American citizenship. I can almost guarantee you that she is talking to multiple men like yourself, perhaps for just as long as she's been talking to you, with the same goal in mind. You're your own man, and you're going to have to make your own decisions and live with the consequences, but if I were in your shoes, I would absolutely not go to Nigeria to meet her. The possibility that this is a scam is scary enough, but you must also keep in mind that Nigeria is a freaking war zone right now. Boko Haram controls vast territories in the northeastern part of the country and there are daily attacks and bombings throughout the whole country of Nigeria, and the neighboring region. An American tourist cruising around the streets of this almost failed state is like screaming "kidnap me, murder me." Based on the conversation you had with Ownage, it doesn't sound like you've been out of the country much. There's no 911 in Africa my friend. You're on your own.

Hey Chris, Ever stop to consider she might want to get with you only for the passport? I don't mean to generalise and all that, but she's Nigerian and a 22 Year old looking to get on with a 45 year old seems a bit odd doesn't it? There's countless cases around this- I know a 50 year old guy who went to Philippines to meet the "love of his life", and in the end she was with him only to get Aussie citizenship. He tried to sue her but nothing worked in his favour. You've got 2 kids that love you a lot, please don't get yourself entangled in a web like this.

Don't fall for the Nigerian 'princess' . You might get scammed or, hell, even kidnapped. Please rethink your plans. Your daughters need you and this is no point to go all selfish on them and possibly deprive them of a loving and caring dad.

Bro. I I'm on your side. I am all for the love you are looking for. Do consider what these people are saying and once you are sure that it's real, go and get what you are looking for my friend! Love is beautiful. Good thing you have great people like OP to see a great opportunity to help a brother out with a dream like yours. Also know that everybody with their hateful comments is only worried about you. They might not know how to express it in a nice way but they care. Good luck my friend!! WKTIAS

To all the people that are saying that this is a catfish - there's a very simple way to find out if she's real. Video chat. And to make 100% sure she's real, ask her to do something peculiar. For example, touching her nose, putting her hand on her face, touching her ear, just something random that you wouldn't normally ask that way the video can't be faked.

You have to wonder why can't she find a man in her own country? Does she ask you for money? That is the number one clue she's not in this for the right reason. I'm not trying to be mean, I just hate to see you get scammed but worse, hurt. This happens every single day, out of country people looking for vulnerable people to get them out of their country or to get as much money out of them as they can. Please be smart about this. If there are red flags listen to your gut. Your kids need their dad. Read all the stories about scammers, do your homework before jetting off to a country that isn't even safe to visit. Good luck with whatever you choose. I hope things work out for you

Guys this isn't about whether it's a scam or not. This man is trying to reach a goal here, and he clearly can't afford it. He is determined to find, what nobody knows yet, the love of his life. The most humane thing to do, is support him. Throw some cash in for him if you can afford it, and otherwise just give him some support. You are probably now thinking that she may be a scammer, and that it's not worth it, but who do you think would get hurt the most? Your wallet, or his feelings? That's why supporting him is so important for him, and that whatever the outcome of his event, he needs to know that he tried, and it's okay to be let down, because the world is not that cruel after all. Isn't this what life is about? Be beautiful, and be humane.
