After reading the articles and the scammers handbook this is what I noticed.
Boy does he have a lot in common with the SCAMMERS!
He said he lives in West Palm Beach, FL, but his phone number 513-443-4179 is a landline phone in Ohio.
He used zip code 10019, but that is for Manhattan, NY
On his profile he said he was Baptist, but told me he attended Grace Episcopal Church.
On his profile he is 6'0"-6'3", but on the phone when I asked he said he was 5'11".
I just read an article on here about IP addresses so I looked his up and it is from Houma, LA.

But guess what else I found with this same number?

I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact address from the computerized search. My name is Dr Frank Saidu. I am the Bill and Exchange (assistant) Manager of Bank of Africa Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of twenty million one hundred thousand United State of American dollars (20.1MILLION USA DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr Kurt Kuhle from Alexandra Egypt who died along with his family in Siber airline that crashed into sea at Isreal on 4th October 2001.
Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want the money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as a next of kin to foreign customer.
The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be transferred into the bank treasury after 8 years if nobody is coming for the claim.
I have agreed that 33% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses that might occurred during the business and 65% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentagesindicated.
Please I would like you to keep this transaction
confidential and as a top secret as you may wish to know that I am a bank official.
