Beware of self-declared lovers from Khumasi (ghana). Apparently this place is a breeding ground of romance scammers. What they do, I think, is hire a good looking girl (whereever in the world) and include her in a Skype group. In Kumasi they operate the chat sessions including uploading pics of the girl. In this case her name was given as "Queen", with the typical Ghanse surname of Kwame Adomako). The chat is in typical African English. Of course you get the heartbreaking stories. South African girl went to study in Ghana (no good study facilities in South Africa of course !), and left there stranded after her auntie she was staying with died. Of course Queen falls immediately in love with you. Would like to have a video chat with you. But her internet connection is slow because she has not payed her provider for some time. If I you pay all the overdue bills you can chat by video. Only 170 dollar.... ´But perhaps the connection is still good enough for a glimpse of me, I will try`. Then you get an invitation for a video chat indeed. And indeed you get a glimpse of a good looking young lady. But not a black girl in a poorly furnished student dormitory, but of a good looking European lady in a quite luxurious environment. Then the connection is lost. `You see, if you pay my bills we could have a prolonged video chat´. If you ask critical questions you get all kind nonsense stories.
I regularly are invited by both European and African ladies who all claim to be stranded in Kumasi and who need money for school fees, house rent, air ticket etc. They seem to scan Skype systematicaly for potential victims. That they are scams becomes obvious after one chat session and usually I cut off. IHowever, sometimes I let them continue for a while to get an better idea of how the trick is played. Weel, this is one example. Beware of pitiful girls from Khumasi! And of Queen Adomako !! And dont send money !
