Ghana Romance Scams

A couple of years back I almost fell for one of these Ghana romance scams. It happened when I was sad, lonely, and vulnerable, my girlfriend had passed away a few months earlier. Me at the prime age of 55 I was single again after spending 16 years with her, I was rusty had been out of the dating scene for so long I was confused about how to meet women my age and start all over again.

So I turned to the Internet to see if I could find a date or two, I had signed up for one of those free dating sights, went thru the whole sign-up, picture and all answered a ton of questions. Tell you the truth some of the questions just did not make since to me but I answered them the best I could. After about a week of searching on the sight this beautiful 25 year old blonde wanted to meet me and yes she was in this very skimpy outfit.

Like a horny old fool I answered her request to chat. To my surprise she answered me back, we chatted a few minutes and then she said she was having problems with the dating sight chat because she was in Ghana doing work for her church and asked me for my yahoo messenger account name. Cause it was easier for her to communicate thru yahoo better then the dating site. After I logged into my messenger account she contacted me a few minutes later and we chatted for over an hour just trying to get to know each other. We then said goodnight to each other before we got off she told me that she would like to chat with me some more, so she would contact me at the same time tomorrow.

Right on time she signed on to chat with me, now this time she was getting a little more into me. Telling me how she had thought of me all the time after we had disconnected last night and could not wait to chat with me again. Now this was getting interesting my blood started to boil a little and I got a little bit excited. Now this chat session lasted a little over an hour, now I'm not going to get into all the steamy things she was conveying to me, just believe me it was a lot of very tantalizing chat if you know what I mean. Well then we finally said our goodnight's and the last thing she said was that she thinks she is falling in love with me and signed off before I could respond to her.

The following day I was so excited I could burst, I was counting the minutes until she signed on. This type of chat went on for several days, by this time I was wanting to meet her face to face so I asked her were she was from in the United States. She responded Pasadena California and that it was just outside of San Francisco Ca. Now that thru up a red flag immediately, cause living in Ca. most of my life I knew Pasadena was in the greater Los Angeles area were i am from. So then I sat back and told myself this has got to be a scam I kept playing the game with who ever was on the other end. Then she told me that she was at the market today and someone had stolen her purse from her and now she had no money and could not pay for her groceries. So she asked me if I could wire her some money to help her out cause she was hungry. Bam that thru up the biggest road block in my mind saying this Has got to be a scam.

At this point I told her goodnight, blocked her from being able to contact me deleted everything I had on her and never talk to the Ghana romance scammer ever again. Everyone learn from this and be safe out there especially no days there are getting better and better at these romance scams, especially if you are older and lonely you can fall for these very easily. I bid you all a goodnight.

Hi Tommy what cracking? You are right that is a scam, there are people that play on other people good natural. When chatting online if somebody ask you for money online, because of some kind of emergency, It's a scam, if they don't have friends and they good looking, that's a scam.
