This sounds similar to one I almost fell for. I met a lady through a dating service who claimed to be from USA only now she lives with her cousin David in Lagos, Nigeria. She falls in love with you quick, asks for you to buy her a plane ticket to your home, and says she lost her Nursing job and needs money for food. She sends over a Western Union Info and asks you to give the money to ROSE JAMES(an apparent scam artist - in Nigeria) When I researched the name ROSE JAMES - Nigeria on the net I found out she was a scam artist.
She says her name is Cindy
Her email addresses are
She has a user name as ABEL
The photographs she sends you are taken from the internet...it wasn't obvious to me at first, but is so now.
anonymous from Australia
Now working under Cindy Abel, thought I caught her out once but covered her tracks, says she live's with Rose Jame still now blonde. Myspace becareful
Cindy Abel(Rose James) tried scamming me too on eHarmony...the exact same story, only she told me in email she had short brown hair and eyes and when I called her on it she suddenly had PC troubles, avoided answering the question, and finally said it was a typing error. Not very experienced scamming people yet as I caught her in numerous other lies.

[hidden] from United States
dose any one know this women she live in Accra Ghana
I do not specifically recognize that picture.
I can tell you this though.
If anyone from Ghana contacts you on line Black or White Woman no difference.
Its a scammer and not only that the photo is stolen and your talking with a man
most likely. Please take the time now to learn there are absolutely no woman from
Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Gold Coast, Or anywhere in Western Africa that are on line that are not scammers.
Please save yourself now money and heart ache end whatever is going on.
These scammers manipulate your feelings into believing their lies.
Never tell the scammer where you learned the truth.
Never post your e mail address on this site. The scammers watch it already.
Be prepared to be scammed again by the very same scammer using different
stolen photo's. Also another fake name and another e mail address.
It does not matter what story you have been told. Its all lies.
If you confront your scammer and say anything about them being a scammer
be ready for one or two different responses. One is you will never hear from them
again. Two they will fall back to plan B and try to convince you they are not a scammer.
Give me a break. You need to end it now because if you don't believe me here and
now you will believe me later when you come back here to tell your sad story.
Its a scammer Plain and simple and there is no chance at all it isn't.
I hope for your sake you listen to me now.
Learn all about scammers now so you don't fall for anything as obvious as this again.
Read the story's on this site you will learn a lot more than you ever dreamed of.
It does not matter at all if you ever find a photo that matches what you posted.
As for name scammers have many fake names. Just as they have a endless
supply of e mail addresses and phone numbers.
Please post everything you can about the scammer when you have first learned
about scams and scammers.
I wish you the best no matter what you decide. A simple thing to remember but very
true. If it sounds to good to be true then its a scammer. Plus never ever send
money to someone you don't know. That means family or close friends not
someone you met on line that is fooling you into thinking they need your money.
The pity is I don't know for sure that this girl is a scammer. She did get to like me very quickly, she is a lot younger than me (and why would a pretty young thing fall for an old man like me). I was being trusting; I did offer to pay for her visa and help her with a plane fare, but when she asked me for the money for the visa and put Western Union in capital letters my suspicions rose to the surface rather than being pushed underground. She did tell me that if I could not pay for the visa she would seek to find an alternative way of funding - so she made it sound as if she were not demanding.
I still don't know if she were a scammer, but my head has got to overrule my heart.
Her name is Cindy Way. She is very pretty, I have seen her on cam ....
I have not included her pic because I might just be wrong. I hope I am
Listen up guys... this is an interesting read outlines Nigeria's hotbed activity and a typical scammer interview. Take heed !
Online scams create 'Yahoo! millionaires'
In Lagos, where scamming is an art, the quickest path to wealth for the cyber-generation runs through a computer screen.
By Leonard Lawal, FORTUNE
(FORTUNE Magazine) - Akin is, like many things in cyberspace, an alias. In real life he's 18. He wears Adidas sneakers, a Rolex Submariner watch, and a kilo of gold around his neck.
Akin, who lives in Lagos, is one of a new generation of entrepreneurs that has emerged in this city of 15 million, Nigeria's largest. His mother makes $30 a month as a cleaner, his father about the same hustling at bus stations. But Akin has made it big working long days at Internet cafes and is now the main provider for his family and legions of relatives.
Call him a 'Yahoo! millionaire.'
Akin buys things online - laptops, BlackBerries, cameras, flat-screen TVs - using stolen credit cards and aliases. He has the loot shipped via FedEx or DHL to safe houses in Europe, where it is received by friends, then shipped on to Lagos to be sold on the black market. (He figures Americans are too smart to sell a camera on eBay to a buyer with an address in Nigeria.)
Akin's main office is an Internet cafe in the Ikeja section of Lagos. He spends up to ten hours a day there, seven days a week, huddled over one of 50 computers, working his scams.
And he's not alone: The cafe is crowded most of the time with other teenagers, like Akin, working for a 'chairman' who buys the computer time and hires them to extract e-mail addresses and credit card information from the thin air of cyberspace. Akin's chairman, who is computer illiterate, gets a 60 percent cut and reserves another 20 percent to pay off law enforcement officials who come around or teachers who complain when the boys cut school. That still puts plenty of cash in Akin's pocket.
A sign at the door of the cafe reads, WE DO NOT TOLERATE SCAMS IN THIS PLACE. DO NOT USE E-MAIL EXTRACTORS OR SEND MULTIPLE MAILS OR HACK CREDIT CARDS. YOU WILL BE HANDED OVER TO THE POLICE. NO 419 ACTIVITY IN THIS CAFE. The sign is a joke; 419 activity, which refers to the section of the Nigerian law dealing with obtaining things by trickery, is a national pastime. There are no coherent laws relating to internet scams, the police are mostly computer illiterate, and penalties for financial crimes are rarely enforced
'What do you want me to do?' Akin asks in pidgin English, explaining why he turned to a life of Internet crime. 'It is my God-given talent. Our politicians, they do their own; me, I'm doing my own. I feed my family - my sister, my mother, my popsie. Man must survive.'
The scams perpetrated by Akin and his comrades are many and varied: Moneygram interceptions, Western Union hijackings, check laundering, identity theft, and outright begging, with tall tales of dying relatives and large sums of money in search of safe haven. One popular online fraud often practiced by women (or boys pretending to be women) involves separating lonely men from their money.
Attempts to speak to government officials about Internet crime were futile. They all claimed ignorance of such scams; some laughed it off as Western propaganda.
Some officials, who asked not be identified, said young people are drawn to Internet crime as a way of getting back at a society that has no plans for them. Others see it as a form of reparation for the sins of the West.
Or as Akin puts it, 'White people are too gullible. They are rich, and whatever I gyp them out of is small change to them.'
Are you being scammed and this is your first visit here?
