GREENSBORO, N.C. – It all started with a Facebook message. On the receiving end— a single mom who was a little lonely.

“It was the moment that I was feeling really miserable.”

This 39-year old won’t show her face we’ll call her “Mary.” She fell hard for who she thought was an Army Captain.

“He seems kind of nice you know in the military and then we start talking,” Mary said.

He sent pictures. He also sent lots of lovey dovey messages. He promised a house in Bellaire, a BMW and a lifetime of love.

“All I think about is oh wow that’s very nice someone want to love me and have money,” Mary said.

Four months in he’s making plans to move to Houston but has one small favor: sign for a shipment of his personal belongings.

“He just needed your help getting this package here yes he wanted it to be in my custody,” Mary said.

So she contacted the shipping company, and suddenly they needed $980 for taxes.

“And you didn’t think twice about it nope no I didn’t because I thought I was in love,” Mary said.
