Why so many inquiries from Ghana, girlfriends, wives and gold?
That is a well known romance or dating scam online.
You are man often from Western and rich country.
Probably you have never been in Ghana. Then you meet some nice, sweet, attractive and sexy women in Ghana. Sometimes girl represents as being from your country, American in West Africa.
Then somebody dies in family, maybe father, and the girl gets the inheritance. It can be gold or diamonds and to get to the gold, all you both need to do is to solve few legal troubles.
Just pay few legal fees to the attorney, then to security house, then pay for certificate of ownership and export certificate and gold will be released.
Then you get the gold and the girl.
In reality the girl is not a girl, it is them, whole group of culprits and they will get your money.
You will lose the girl, the gold and the money altogether.
What are the major indications of romance scam?
You have meet the “girl” online through the negligent dating service. I say negligent as it is so. As a programmer I know how easy it is to discover if anybody is luring people into the romance scam. In the background control of the dating service they know they could stop it, and they don’t. They work in their best interest and that is your money.
Girl is American in Ghana or Africa. This is another indication that it is scam. Girl represents herself as being American in Ghana or in West Africa. Let us stress here that Ghana is full of good and honest people, and the fact that you may become victim of criminals cannot and should not be generalized for whole population.
Father dies, or other family member and she has got inheritance. This is another almost sure factor that the “deal” you think you have at hands is not real.
Yes, I know, you wanted to smash two flies with one stroke. I do understand that it sounds appealing to get the girl and the gold at once.
But all that is going to happen is that she, or he, or them, are going to enjoy your money in disco clubs in Ghana. They may buy a car or otherwise get some temporary pleasure. You will miss the girl and the gold and the money you paid for it.
Gold is in security house and so because it has been locked there for some time, somebody need to pay the storage fees so that gold may be released. Fake!
Attorney need to be paid and there will be a range of other fees that you would need to pay before releasing the gold and getting the girl over there to you.
Certificate of ownership and Certificate of Ownership Act of Ghana may be mentioned, which are both fake and never issued in real gold transactions. Fake!
Gold is supposedly hard to sell in Ghana. Wow! How fake it can be! Ghana was named in past Gold Coast. What do you think why it was called Gold Coast by British? Because it is full of gold! That means that gold market is well developet and if anything is easy to sell in Ghana that is gold. No special documents need to be shown to sell gold in Ghana.
They may ask you to pretend it is your wife or girlfriend. So by all inquiries you are making in order to sell the gold, you may need to pretend to have your wife in Ghana. It will sound more plausible. And it is fake!
That is not your true love. It is a dating or romance scam. If you wish to find a truly good African and beautiful girlfriend or wive, contact our company, and we may recommend you good women. But that what you have there is just somebody who need your money. You are their white ATM cash machine. :-)
Even if she claims to be your girlfriend, if you have not seen her, you don’t know it well. Sometimes they will tell you to say it is your wife there. It is better for credibility to say “my wife” than “my girlfriend”. I mean you did not yet share the bed, and she is the wife? Girlfriend? I don’t know, it does not make sense to me.
The gold is apparently much more valuable than the money you are required to pay, so that is the trap. You think it does not matter, you are going to get a beautiful African girl for the wife, plus the gold worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Solution and advice for you
I am sorry that so many scammers, and you don’t know if they are men or girls, do that in Ghana and make a bad image for all Ghanaian people. But those are actually few. There are many nice and beautiful and if not beautiful than nice and humble girls or whatever adjectives you wish to put there. Many are in Ghana and in whole Africa. Your choice is absolutely justified. Search for a nice African woman for you. But take care if that is a true girl that loves you or maybe she loves your money.
It is a scam. It is well known as dating scam or romance scam. So, you better forget about that. Find another girl. Life is not a dream.
