After less than 15 days, this lady said she was in love with me and said she was planning to come and be with me for the rest of her life within the next two weeks. She said she was going to pay for her airline ticket, but she needed money for a calling card so that we could talk. She stated she really wanted to hear my voice. She got upset when I said I did not have the money right now. And kept asking me if I could send it yet and if I had sent it yet. She really messed up when she contacted me by Yahoo messenger and accidentally left her microphone on. She said she did not have a microphone or speakers for her computer. I offered to send her a microphone headset but she ignored that offer and insisted that she needed the phone card. It cost $150.00. Eventually, she stated she needed this amount plus another $250.00 to pay for Christmas presents for she and her family. Is that great or what? I confronted her about the voice mail and she said she did not have a microphone but I could hear her typing and her family in the background making I think lunch.

I met her on AFF about 25 July 2010. After 2 or 3 short messages there, we decided to chat on yahoo IM, and also by email. She sent me a letter of intorduction on 29 Jul, very sweet about her and what she was looking for. In hindsight it was of course similar to me. Initially we talked about likes and dislikes and general things around the world, all seemed innocent, then of course the emails started getitng more intimate. on the 3 Aug I became suspicious, because of contradictionsin her emails, but also she called me, and she definately did not sound south african or american. I setup an investigation with on the 3 Aug. I kept corresponding with her so as not to arrouse suspicion , but also 'just in case it was OK' IN her emails she had told me that she was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, and moved to Ghana when she was about 16 years old. She had sent me a copy of her passport, which to me looked genuine enough, other than the name did not match the face in my opinion. Her father supposedly died in 2004 in the mines of Ghana, and they took away their failies house a year later and gave them some money to find a new house and start a business, not enough she said.She apparently works in a big shopping mall in Accra, selling knick knacks i suppose i would call it. I received the report back from on the 7 Aug as promised. It confoirmed all my suspiciouns. Her passport was fake, as was her name, her current alias is already known, they are uinable to prosecute because of the corruption in the local police force. She only hionted at not having mney, but she was dstrong about her undying love for me. She apparently goes to church on Sundays with her mum and sister. (Kathy and Marian.

They said they would send it to me but had to pay first along with my bank info to deposit 3.5 million dollors in it. I said I didn't have the money. Then she wanted 150.00 To pay for the internet so we could keep talking,I said no to that. I told her I don't give money to somebody I can't look into there eyes.She sent me a picture of her holding a sign to prove to me it was her.All along telling me I don't care about her because I won't help her, sending me more pictures of her. After I found this site I looked under the name of melissa midwest that lives in Lincoln, nebraska. She has her own web site ,where u can see all these pictures that were sent to me,and she is hooked up to twitter. She never responded to my twits. You can go to youtube and see a story about her.

She claims she lives in Hamilton and is travelling the USA.Dealing in buying and selling art etc.. She sounds like a nice person then suddenly she starts asking for money dont trust her. this is all the information i can give you, even her face book is fake.

"About Me and Who I'm Looking For:
I have been described as a very patient person, full of empathy and understanding. I love having a laugh, good times with friends, just hanging out. I love having fun, passion, connection with that special person. I feel the most important part of a relationship is to be totally involved and committed to each other, no half measures. This does not mean that you lose yourself to the other person, rather a case of extending the best of who you are and growing within that nurturing atmosphere. I believe that we should always be the best of who we are, no matter what the circumstances. I believe in intergrity and values, and being true to yourself. Life is amazing, we have so much to enjoy. I love travelling, am just starting my forays out into the world of travel. I participate in the arts, and am reasonably successful, however, even though it is my passion, I am able to temper it with a business mind. My world is happy, generous, kind. I am hoping that this stage of life allows me to connect with my soul mate. I am looking for a partner who knows who they are and what they want. They know how to be passionate and romantic, comfortable in their own skin. Like me, they must be kind, generous, happy and articulate."

I had been on Match for 3 days and hadn't heard back from the women i had emailed when she winked at me and we started talking. A few days into the chat on yahoo she pulled her profile off of saying that she felt confident i was the guy she was looking for. Said she was visiting her mom in Akkra Ghana and had been there for approximately 2 wks and was getting ready to come back to the US on the 20th of Feb. 2012. Dad is from England but lives in Italy having a business there. English is nearly perfect but I did speak with her on the phone (always a lousy connection) and some of her words clearly have the Ghanain accent or maybe Nigerian accent. Odd for a girl raised in Sheffield England. She is very well versed on English Premier league soccer and players. She sent me a picture of 'her' at a basketball game and knew the stadium and the team though neither were clearly evident to the casual observer but a friend saw the pic and after looking at it (no players on the court as pregame photo) he said it was the Lakers and it was the Staples Center. She told me that she had dual citizenship in Britain and Ghana and was in the US on a work visa. She said that she was coming home to Downey (where she works as a private chef for 3 families and makes approximately 7k/mo) on the 20th of February but missed the plane because her work visa hadn't come through and she wouldn't have it till Wednesday the 22nd. I told her that I had read about scams in Ghana which she was hurt that I asked, and then she sent me photos of her Medical report, Visa and Police report with her picture on them and they were dated feb. 21, 2012 which was the day after her plane was to leave for the US . Anyway, big problem now because she had to pay to change the ticket -- 30% of the price of the original ticket which was 5k. She was going to ask her father for the money but couldn't get through to him in Italy and she needed $1,500. It was a first class ticket from Ghana to Amsterdam where it laid over 3 hours then went directly to LAX which I looked into and found she had done her homework well as the times and flights were all like she said on KLM air. She aksed me if she could borrow the money and she'd repay me when she got back She claims to have a paternal aunt named Debbie with 2 kids, Johnson 5 and Janet 3. Debbie was raised in London.

Melinda Wayne (Melinda or the Subject), claims she won prize money from the Better Life Foundation in Spain, her former employer. You have informed us that you have loaned Melinda 10,500.00 GBP to help pay off 15,750.00 GBP she owed in back due rent and her aunt Sharon Wayne paid off the balance. You have also indicated that you loaned Melinda 4200 GBP for UK taxes on the award.
Melinda claims to have paid 10,000 Euro to Estudio Juridico Fiscal (No 72 Piso 3 Pta 8 Valencia 46004, Spain) to process the award money. She dealt with Pablo Gomez-Mora from Estudio Juridico Fiscal.
You have requested copies of the collection lawsuit filing in the UK to see how the prize funds have been tied up as claimed by Melinda and to see where the award is deposited. You have also asked us to perform due diligence and confirm Melinda Wayne is who she claims to be and to identify possible red flags.
There is strong evidence that Melinda Wayne is not who she claims to be. There is no record of her in the US or the UK. Also, Sharon Wayne appears to be a fictitious individual and while Jude Nzenagu (Melindas supposed attorney) does exist, there is no record of him being a practicing solicitor, either with the Law Society of England & Wales or Scotland. We could find no trace of a law firm by the name of Lamback. An exhaustive search for the lawsuit described above yieldedyieldedyielded

You indicated that Melinda Wayne resided and was educated in the United States for several years. Our research found no record of a Melinda Wayne born in the United States.
We conducted extensive research in the UK using a variety of sources to digitally and physically confirm Melinda Waynes presence in the UK and to locate the alleged lawsuit/judgment in question. We did not locate a lawsuit and more importantly, our research found no record at all of Melinda Wayne in the UK. The following databases and sources were searched to verify her identity with negative results:
Trace+ Database (official UK database consisting of all UK names, addresses and telephone numbers from historic and current Electoral Rolls, the Royal Mails Postcode Address File (PAF), Telephone Subscriber information and several commercial/business data files)
Individual Insolvency Register (register containing details of bankruptcies and individual voluntary arrangements in England & Wales)

We also checked with the Nursing & Midwifery Council for the UK, they had no record of anyone by the name of Melinda Wayne being registered with them.
We found no record of Melinda Waynes supposed aunt Sharon Wayne in the UK.
Melinda claims her attorney is Jude Nzenagu of Lamback Law Firm, but the Solicitors Regulation Authority in the UK has no record of a law firm in the UK by the name Lamback Law Firm and no record of a Jude Nzenagu being an attorney. We also checked with the Law Societies for England and for Scotland for any record of Jude Nzenagu as a lawyer or Lamback law firm. There is no such record of such lawyer or law firm.
