A young woman here says she is frightened for her life after she entered into an online relationship with a man she doesn’t know, a relationship that later blossomed into a face to face encounter. We even made love online and six weeks ago he sent me a ticket to visit him.
Rachel said she didn’t understand what the woman was saying because her language was different. He has money and I am scared that he might actually buy a ticket and come here,” she said.
Rachel said he has hacked into her email and is now posting letters threatening her life.
When I asked him why he had never spent a full night with me, he gave me excuses like he has to work,” she told DNO.
The young woman said the night before she left, the man was apparently followed and a woman came knocking on the door, threatening to kill him. I was scared but then he returned a few hours later and apologized. Rachel said she played it cool but had made her mind up that it was over once she returned to Dominica. I just dumped him but now I am scared because he is threatening me. I have made a report to the police already but he just won’t stop.
