So glad I found this! I have been chatting with this Veronica Mensah from Ghana for the past two months. She uses Yahoo messager by the name of honestvern42 and email is email@example.com. Her story is that she moved to Ghana with her mother to be with her dying grandfather (also says her father is from Ghana, but mother is American) She seems very sweet and sincere, but I find it funny that her grandfather has to reach me to say she is online and ready to speak with me. (I sadly gave her my cell phone number that's how he calls me). She says how sweet and kind I am and wants to be with me but needs me to send her 750 dollars so she can fly to be with me. We chat all the time but she never can video chat with me. Always some funny excuse like her webcam is broken or lost the cord to hook up a camera. I really think this is all a bunch of lies. If anyone else has had a run in with this person please reply!!

I met horro
Thanks for your Immediate response, How are you doing today? hope fine and you are perfectly doing well in health. My name is Miss Vera Kalou, 24 years old girl from Ivory Coast in west Africa, 5ft 8inches tall, Single never married, black hair and brown eyes. I want to assure you that Color, Race, Religion, or Nationality makes no difference to me. What i see in people are their Personality and Character. I promise you all that makes up a defined and a refined LOVE and i have a special reason why i decided to contact you immediately after going through your profile which i was well satisfied with.
I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here. I am presently living in Senegal due to the death of my family. My Father ( Dr Kalou Touré ) was the personal adviser to the former head of states, Also a successful business man import and exporter during his life time, before the rebels attacked my house one early morning killing my mother and my father. Equally my mother was a senior lecturer at the university before her death, it was only me that is alive now because I was the only child to my parents, and I managed to make my way to near by country Senegal, where I am leaving now.
I was in the University where am schooling, I'm doing my first year in accountant, I then manage to abscond to follow west African country (SENEGAL ) where am residing now in '' REFUGEE CAMP''. I decided to contact you, due to the problematic situation which am passing through here in this camp. We are not eligible to go out from the camp unless we took permission. It's just like one staying in the prison, but I believe by God's grace i will extricate here soon.
l don't have any relatives now whom l can go to all my relatives abscond in the middle of the war the only one l have now is Reverend Patrick Philip who is the pastor of the (Christ the kings Church) here in the camp he has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not living with him rather i am leaving in the female's hostel because the camp have two hostels one for women & the other for men.
Please listen to this, i have my late father's statement of account and his death certificate here with me which i will send to you later, because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in one of the leading bank which he used my name as the next of kin, the amount in question is $5.7M( Five Million seven Hundred Thousand Dollars). So i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from it you can send some money for me to get my traveling documents and air ticket to come over to meet with you. I kept this secret to people in the camp here, the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.
The Pastors Tel. number is (00221 781237940 OR +221 781237940) If you call tell him you want to speak with me, then he will send for me in the female hostel. As a refugee here i don't have any privileged to anything be it money or whatever because it is against their law. I want to go back to my studies because i only attended my first year before the tragic incident that lead to my being in this situation now.
NOTE; As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest, I will put things into action immediately and will educate you more on the way you will assist me receive the money, in the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent response indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely.
Regarding to the above i will like you to be confidential and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my life and the money if people gets to know about it. Remember i am giving you all this information due to confident I confide on you. I like sincere, kind, respectful, honest and understanding people, truth and hard working. I love English language but I would like to know many others if God gives me the opportunity but i speak English and Italian very well. However I will like you to call me because we still have a lot to discuss. I want to know a bit about you, i have just sent mine pictures here as an attachment bellow.

Hmmm, look at how the tables are turning.
Here are Nigerian people themselves saying, avoid this scam! (The one above)
I have been chatting with a woman from Accra Ghana, who says shes in need of food, and wanted me to send her money. Her skype also seems to be malfunctioning and she tells me that the power in Accra goes down everyday for hours at a time. I find that really hard to believe that a city as big as 2.7 million would have those kinds of problems and still function. So I did an international back ground check and her email address and name has been red flagged as belonging to a scamming network.
i only started chatting with this woman 2 days ago and asked me to send her money to buy food and a webcam so that we could see each other as we are chatting ,
she only needs $100 and asked me to send it via western union after providing me with her full name and phone number.
also sent me some pics of her in a sexy outfit!
from the beginning i knew that it was a scam, but decided to play along so iam suppose to be sending her money tomorrow and in return she would be nice to me and love me and send me some intimate pics of her...lol !!!
any ways for you all out there be very careful her full name according to her is ( veronica mensah ) lives in kumasi Ghana.
thanks and i will keep you posted with anything new ?
