I receive this posting from Delphi everyday and I feel so sorry for all you guys getting scammed by people (men ) in Ghana.
The only waY to find out the truth if you get chatting to a 'girl' in Ghana is go there.
Believe me I lost several $1.000 before I got wise..
Eventually I went to Ghana and met a girl who is real and am going back in September/October to get married as the Embassy declined a visitor visa in May.
MY ADVICE TO ANY GUY TALKING TO A GIRL IN GHANA IS THIS
1. FIRST GET A PHOTO OF HER TAKEN IN THE STREET OUTSIDE A WELL KNOWN BUILDING LIKE THE NATIONAL THEATRE IN ACCRA WITH HER HOLDING A PIECE OF PAPER WITH YOUR NAME ON IT.
BEWARE THOUGH THEY WILL EVEN TRY TO FORGE THIS.!!
SECONDLY SEND VERY LITTLE MONEY !!! TO TEST THEIR ACTUAL INTEREST.
THIRDLY GO TO GHANA IT WILL COST YOU LESS IN THE LONG RUN..!!!!

NO NO NO!!! Do NOT go to Ghana to see if she is real!! There are numerous reports of victims going there and being kidnapped, held for ransom and even murdered. This is very, very bad advice. Isn't your life worth more than that??? If you went there, you were extremely lucky. There are travel warnings galore about going to Ghana and Nigeria. Do NOT do it!! Bad, bad advice!!

I'm a white European, and I've lived in Accra, Ghana, for the past eight years.
I certainly realize the huge problem regarding internet freud from West Africa, but at the same time, I wish to mention that NOT 100% of Ghanaian girls using online dating sites have bad intentions.
Many young Ghanaian ladies have a dream of a life abroad, and there's nothing they want more than building a true relationship with a foreigner. They're not after a quick dollar, but they seek a better future for themsevles and their future kids, as well as the desire to be able to support their aging parents.
Those are good honest girls, but in most cases they complain to me, because the American or European men they meet online are crap, looking for live sex-shows on cam, etc.... Other foreigners who are planning a vacation to West Africa, chat with 5-6 girls, pretending to be really interested in them...only to use them as exotic sex-toys while they're here on vacation. I have the feeling that the percentage of human crap is the same among the foreign men online, as it is among the local girls here.
However, I know 8-10 women who are now married after meeting a foreigner online.
I'm not at all defending the freudsters online, and I'm glad to see the Ghanaian government finally starting to take action to deal with the problem. My reason for writing this note, is that I don't like the stereotype that there are no honest Ghanaian women online, seaching for true love.
If you love-seeking men knew ANYTHING about Ghanaian culture, you'd know that no decent Ghanaian girl would send their semi nude picture to a stranger online, not even a bikini-shot. Even a prostitute would feel too shy to put her nudity out in public like that! If they do this, you know for sure the photos are fake! (Not to mention what kind of losers the men are for requesting nude pics after chatting with a stranger for an hour!)
One thing I find surprising about the fake dating profiles from Ghana, is how many of them pretend to be white skinned. There is no white population in Ghana (like you'd find in South Africa, etc), except expats coming and going, some exchange students and a few working for international organisations.
The whites who live here would certainly not use the internet to find a partner.

easiest way to tell if you are messing with a scammer from ghana is to claim you are unemployed with no money. I had another 'woman' from ghana approach me on a social site earlier and after spewing a sob story of my own the conversation died rather quickly :) I won't say for sure she is a scammer but I was curious as to how her name was Elizabeth being from africa and asked if her parents were from europe. her reply was she was an orphan so then comes my sob story.

Yes you can get kidnapped but this is RARE...I spent two weeks in Ghana in April/May and i HAD NO PROBLEMS..
I agree not all girls in Ghana are crooks or men posing as girls!!
Further to my last posting if you are talking to a 'girl' in Ghana get the photo as I said before..also get a copy of her passport..If she hasnt got one send her the 25ghc that is costs to get one then have her send it to you by email..Check thats its a real one on the Internet site where you can see how the Data page etc should be laid out.
Ask her for her ID card which most have ..although these are often forged.
If after all this you are satisfied then as I said before..GO THERE AND MEET HER at the AIRPORT...
I agree with all that has been said in the next posting from the guy from Norway who works there..
He is right...it is quite safe in ACCRA if you think aboutt your movements etc. It is no more dangerous that some US cities...ive been there as well...
email@example.com...have also nude pics! Told she is from New Jersey...asked for money for pills and drugs and surgery for her mom!!!!! Met her on SayMeHi under Kathyluv.....Have only this small pics but i think it will be helpful here!
