Ghana and internet dating scams

09 Aug

Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime. She's not sure if the man she is talking to is real... Her story is almost same as yours, she has sent him a lot of money already, mostly for his daughter who is going to boarding school in Africa (or something like that) she also sent her money for a birthday party. I never accept unknown requests but hit the wrong button by mistake.

Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. he says he has no family just the family of deceased wife who is supposedly caring for girl while he is working overseas for an oil company as an engineer. I bet he told you his wife is alcoholic and has multiple affairs. My first question was why anyone would send a stranger a request. I then proceeded to respond to his request to get to know each other while I caught him in lies. Single father of a 12 yo boy whose mother died in a crash 4 years ago.

99% profiles are fake,created by young teenage "GUYS" at their local internet cafe! Some asked for money up front like for money making schemes. while Ghana is probobly at the bottom of pit ugliness !!

, i am sorry to say but since you see it fit to scam us pretending to some chic from Europe then i am going to tell it like it is !

After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account.

The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.

did these girls say that theyre living with their mum in Ghana because their dad passed away?

I have been on matchcom and lately I have been getting a lot of e mails from Ghana. Never one on a weekend, I usually had to write first.

The frist one was suspicious but I wrote back stating I had no money to send. Finally I pulled the plug and that is when I got flooded with e mails from Ghana. They are good at removing a suspicious profile when there members complain about it.

According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, online romance scams account for higher financial losses than any other internet-based crime.

It’s not uncommon for victims to lose tens of thousands of dollars.
