I am a foreigner living and working in Ghana since the last couple of years. I have both their pics so will try to send to everyone to be aware of them 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.This topic even appears in local newspapers frequently. 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. unlike Ghana who don`t have much good looking girls to show off , Russia actually do have the most beautiful girls in the world and it is true that thousands of gorgeous Russian girls marry to ugly men from all over the world !I've talked to 3 women like this who have had the same story.
In the past several months, I have noticed an increase in issues regarding Ghanaian “friends” who were met over the internet, or who are cyber dating through internet dating websites.
Some questions are posted to this forum, and you can scan through the issues to see the ones I refer to, while others have emailed me directly for my advice or thoughts, as I am an American living in Ghana and married for 17 years to a Ghanaian.
Some asked for money up front like for money making schemes. An easy way to spot these fakers are their crappy english language skills!
did these girls say that theyre living with their mum in Ghana because their dad passed away?
As soon as I do that, I report them as scammers I use a popular dating service. about three quarters of the girls with profiles that say they are in NY finally say they are in Ghana.
As soon as I do that, I report them as scammers I too have found scammers to be a huge problem on dating sites...
you ve gotten it all wrong, Ghana itself have if not least,no idea about scams,it is the Nigerian community in Ghana who are scamming people all over,because Nigerians are now well known about these scams and they ranked number in the world,so now they use Ghana as their country and portray to be like Ghanaians, Nigeria is not far from Ghana and there are about a million Nigerians living in Ghana,those of us who have been on the net for a long know this...
if you want to find out these check the origins of the names they give to you to send money to, and trace the originality of the name which people uses those names, you will end up in a tribe in Nigeria, alot of people have tried this and haave come to realise this that they are nigerian community in Ghana I use a popular dating service. about three quarters of the girls with profiles that say they are in NY finally say they are in Ghana.
funerals in Ghana are not like funerals in the US, and while I don’t know the cost, I know for a fact that “donations” by mourners at the end of the funeral period usually more than cover the cost of the funeral outlay. There are several websites that now have information about cyber-dating scams, and I am listing them below. Even if you see a picture, it’s one they downloaded from the internet.
But no way is it near ,500 unless perhaps the person who died was a village chief or something. Want to know what they really look like, ask them to go to a cyber café that has web cam and IM you at the same time; all the big internet cafes here in Accra have it, Busy Internet, Smart Net, etc. If the issue is an unpaid doctor or hospital bill, tell them you will send money only to the hospital.
Go to and check the directory/phone book for a listing, don’t believe what they tell you.
