Have you run into any 401 scammers on OKcupid?

I'm talking to a woman on OKcupid whom I'm about 98% certain is a Nigerian 401 scammer. She's admitted she doesn't live right down the 405 from me, in California, as her account stated. Instead she now says she's in Nigeria, but wants to come back to the USA, but it's hard because she's Brazilian. Her emails to me have started laying a bread crumb of typical 401 scam factoids.
I'm a bit fascinated with the attempt, but have started using throw away skype accounts and emails to talk to her.
I just want to know, have you run into this, and if so, what was the story you were given?
