Other Comments:
This guy asked me for money 4 times. He said he was a mining consultant and shortly after we started talking, he said he had to leave immediately for Ghana to get gold for a bank. He first said he was robbed when he went on a business trip in Ghana, and they took his son's play station and all of his credit cards. He then asked me for money to invest in gold, that I would make 5 times the profit, then just before he was to come back home, he said his son fell and hit his head and was in the hospital. He said he needed $900 as the doctors would not treat his son unless he paid them. He later tried to up it to $1500 saying they wouldn't discharge him unless he paid them this money. He stated he had no friends and every suggestion I gave him to try to get the money, he always had some excuse. I read that I should Google the words in the ad, and I found the exact same ad on another dating site, but with a totally different picture. I also saw he posted on OKCupid with one of the pics he sent me, different from the one I am submitting.

This was the pic I was sent, saying his 'son' had a head injury and the hospital in Ghana wouldn't treat his son unless he got money, since his was stolen upon arrival in Ghana.
