Name: Claudia Mensah
Other Comments: She contacted me through webdate.com Her profile is still active even after I notified the administators she was a scam artist. We talked for over 14 months via yahoo and phone. I spoke to a man that was allegedly her father. She even spoke to my kids on the phone. We decided that she should come here for a visit. So I arranged everything from my side with tickets. I stressed to Claudia that I would not send money overseas for a plane ticket. So when she was due to leave, the phone call from Ghanaian customs came at 4am my time. She had been arrested for not declaring gold. Several phone calls later and her father was begging me to help, saying they needed $9000 for her to catch the next flight. I was also told that he would mortgage his house to help me pay. Funny thing was, I was always told by Claudia that they rent. So needless to say all communication stopped suddenly. I feel sorry for the genuine African ladies out there, brcause these scams really make it hard for anyone to trust anything from Africa. I've repoted this to the police here and they have access to the 200 e-mails I've received. So guys if this has happened to you, report it. Don't use being embarassed as an excuse not to. Your short term pain could save others and help re-store a countries reputation. But they were good. I spoke to the Ghanaian community here in Australia and was told that the scam was called a 415. They hurt a little financially, but the emotinal pain was worse. Look out for her. CLAUDIA MENSAH. Father is called ROBERT OPOKU. Immigration Officer is BRIGHT OWUSU.
