Harry Larson

I met Harry W Larson on the dating website "Sugar After speaking via the site we continued to email via messager and Yahoo email getting to know each other as much as possible online. I waited to actually speak via phone with him for several days, he continued to ask to speak with me and I finally spoke with him after setting up a Yahoo Messenger via online phone. After a while, we spoke via cell everyday and often. He so-called fell in love, but I'm not easy to given in emotionally therefore I continued to ask how could you fall in love and have never met me. We learned what I thought was truthful information about each other and I started feeling comfortable about who he said he was. He gave me his address, showed me photos of his house, looked himself up in white pages and provided me the information about his business C and L Salvage. I looked at the website and read about the company and was quite impressed at the business. He indicated that the sold resalvaged vehicles to distressed Countries. He mentioned that he was going to be traveling to London, however, at the last minute his agent advised that he should travel to Ghana instead because of the opportunity.
He changed his plans to go to Ghana instead and I spoke with him at the airport for almost 40mins before leaving. He mentioned that his 2 kids (girl and boy ages 10 and 12) were at the airport to send him off with his nannie.
The next evening I received a call stating that he made it to Ghana safely and indicated that he had a problem obtaining his vehicles from customs. They had indicated that the port charges were higher than anticipated by almost $10k. He asked if I could send him that amount and I insisted that I really didn't know him that well to send him that kind of money and I really didn't feel comfortable doing that. He was persistent in his request and continued to call everyday almost every hour on the hour almost crying that he doesn't know what he's going to do. The agent was willing to assist as well, but he's not rich and can't do the entire amount. I gave in sent him $5k via Money Gram and Western Union. Thinking that his problems were resolved, he contacted me the next day indicating that he required to pay for a stand to sell 860 cars and that was $20k and he was not aware of this charge. I argued with him indicating that he needs to hire another agent because evidently he doesn't know what he's doing. I'm not sending anymore money. Again, he persisted and asked for me to send atleast half the amount because he called a friend who gave him $4500 and his nannie agreed to give him $2000. Against my better judgement, I sent this man electronics totalling $9k and had my brother send him $950 via Money Gram in someone else' name. After he received all of the funds he requested, I didn't hear from him therefore, I sent a text to him asking what was going on and he indicated that he was sick and would call me. That exchange was on May 6, 2013 and to date I have not heard from this guy. I have left an email and voice message on the phone number provided prior to him leaving for his trip letting him know that I would be launching an investigation against him and I do expect to receive my money back from as promised.
I contacted C and L and spoke with Joe who indicated that he owned the business and ran accross information on the internet indicating that he had a business with his company and he doesn't know who this individual is. He asked for my name and indicated that he would keep my number if it's ok. I let him know that it was fine. I have names of other people that he provided as his agent and a hotel worker at Frankie's Hotel in Accra, Ghana where he so called resided while in Ghana from April 17th until now. Please advise if there is anything that you can do to help me get my money back or if you can refer me as to how to move forward.
