Dating scams and promises from ghana

Instead of sending spam letters that promise millions for your assistance, these scammers are targeting single men and women who are searching for love online.They use psychological tricks to lure their victims in, use poetry and even gifts to get them under their spell, and then once you are there, will try to reach for your wallet, all the time declaring their "undying love" for you. There is NO treasures and gold, just you, your wallet and a scammer.

He's hunting through chat rooms, dating sites and social networking sites searching for victims, looking to cash in on romance.

If you are over 40, recently divorced, a widow, elderly or disabled then all the better in his eyes.

You or someone you know may be dating this person online right now. No matter how good they sound, things aren't what they appear to be.

In reality you're talking to a criminal sitting in a cybercafé with a well-rehearsed script he's used many times before.

Or, they pretend to be in the military, and either want you to pay so they can go on a leave and meet with you (bunch of crock!

Whatever they bought, was purchased with a stolen credit card, soon the seller will find out, and police will be after YOU, as your address is listed as a receiver.

You don’t have to question it, you don’t have to ask why, you don’t have to seek for exceptions from the rule, because there are NONE. And your handsome white dude or chick in Nigeria is also no exception. If a supposedly white, asian or hispanic person contacts you online and then turns out to be in Nigeria or Ghana, it’s a scam. As for black people, if they claim to be African-Americans, but “presently” temporarily in Nigeria or Ghana for any reason: job, taking care of a sick parent, etc.. Especially if their picture looks like an African-American model. 5) they chat with you, send love letters (stolen from elsewhere and easily googled), sometimes send little gifts, purchased with stolen CC 6) they talk to you on the phone and sound bloody African, but you think it’s a sexy “Italian” accent. Whenever West Africa is mentioned, you have to drop correspondence immediately. They know people don’t trust Nigeria and Ghana anymore, so they pretend to be from any other country in the world, or that they are in the US military, and ask to send money not to Africa, but to other countries: to their accomplices and mules.

So, here is one more axiom, something you have to make a sticky note of and put on your refrigerator. What happens to all these people in Nigeria and Ghana? This is how things go: 1) they contact you, claiming to be from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Western Europe 2) their English sucks, though they claim to be the native English speakers and they say “am” instead of “I am” 3) they give you their email or Yahoo ID in the first 1-2 messages and want to get off-site and chat on messenger 4) they are widowers, their wives died in the horrible car or plane crashes, they raise “a kid” alone, or (if they are females) they are recovering from a bad relationship with a cheating ex. Whatever you are involved in with Nigeria or Ghana, is always scam and fraud.

Internet romance scams and other related crimes are affecting and ruining lives throughout the world. The more people that are educated in the way the scams work, the harder it is for the scammers to make money and the more scammers that can be put out of business.
