James Thelning, 64, of Hatfield, met someone who called herself "Mary Douglas" through an online dating web site, according to police. "Mary" told Thelning that she was going to Africa to star in a movie and needed some funds to cover the expenses ... When authorities learned that Thelning was trying to withdraw $46,000 they initiated an investigation and by checking his email correspondences with "Mary" and her reps, traced them back to IP addresses in Nigeria .... On May 19, Thelning, accompanied by undercover investigators, went to the Marriott hotel at the airport where he was to deliver the money to "Mary's" courier, "Soloh Batouya"
