What steps, if any, have you already taken to block the scammer?: she is still sending me text messages and trying to convince me to pay for the plane ticket her to come live with me. I know there is no way in hell that would happen. because she is fake and it is definitely a scam.
I actually started talking to another girl but i didn't send her much money, ONLY 100. I HAD WESTERN UNION CANCEL THE last AMOUNT FOR ME WHEN I FOUND THESE WERE SCAMS. she has since been truthful with me. she is a 4' 2" black girl she had a guy named Derrick oppong brefo pick up her money. her name on skype is owusu.nadia3 her fake pics are the real Josie Ann Miller. I wondered if they were known to each other but they said the lived in different cities in Ghana.
Are there any other details you wish to share? Anything you say may help prevent someone else from being scammed, no matter how trivial it may seem at the time.: I have several photos of Mercy AKA blue eyed cass that she sent me. this was a romance scam.
The latest photo shows a Ghana passport
with mercy's name and cass's photo. to prove to me she was real. I did not rename the passport photo it said steve passport.jpg I don't know any steve.?? She also sent a sign with her holding that say I love you jer. there was not enough room to include all the photos. I had recorded the skype conversation but the video quality was poor and kept freezing she didn;t have sound. she said she didn't have any speakers and had to borrow the camera. i noticed small inconsistencies with the video one time she had a sweater on then she took it off it froze and then when it started again the sweater was back on Ghana temps are hot. why would anyone need a sweater in 100 degree heat. I think it was a loop. the way she moved her hair and things was always exactly the same.
