US Woman Wires $1.4 MILLION to Online Lover in Africa She’s Never Met (Photos)

An American woman has defended her decision to send $1.4 million to her online lover in Africa – who she has never met.

According to DailyMail, twice-divorced Sarah met Chris Olsen online
18 months ago. Though the mysterious man’s accent has changed over time,
and he keeps asking for money to be wired to various different
countries, Sarah insists she is ’95 per cent certain’ that he is telling
her the truth.

Despite his numerous attempts to come home so they can be together, she says, he keeps getting arrested on false charges

In an interview with Dr Phil, Sarah explained that they speak for hours on the phone each day.
She described the moment they met on the internet:

‘An attractive person came on there and
said “wow you look like you wouldn’t hurt a fly”. I said “wow this guy’s
really handsome, I can’t believe he’s talking to me!”‘

He told her he was called Chris Olsen, who hailed from Milan but moved to the U.S. 18 years ago.

Currently, she says, he is based in Africa on business, and has been for more than a year and a half.
When they met he said he was in South Africa. After a brief stint in Nigeria, he relocated to Benin, Sarah explained.

Within seven weeks of meeting, he professed his love in a gushing
email that referred to her as ‘Mrs Olsen’. And days later, he sent the
first of many requests for money.

She has now sent him $1.4 million in total for hotel bills, calling
cards, lawyers, an expired visa, stolen credit cards, and bail. Last
June, she even had to sell an apartment she owned to wire him $550,000

However, she believes he is trying his utmost to make it home.

Sarah concedes that there are suspicious elements to his story:

 ‘When I first started talking to him,’
she told Dr Phil, ‘He sounded Italian now his accent’s kind of changed I
don’t know if he’s adapted to where he’s at… in Benin.’

But, she concludes: ‘I still believe in love.’
