Report N1 (added on November, 27, 2013)

Linda contacted me thru a dating site and contacted me on Yahoo IM corresponded with her from 07/08/2013 till 09/25/2013 nothing strange during the relationship money request was done thru Money Gram and western Union Money was transferred to Linda James, then later to Augustina Badekomah
32 Money transfers totaling $27,600
The final outcome was in transit, she was stopped at Frankfurt, Germany due to Ghana officials not properly stamping her passport. had stamp re-issued 2 times, another plane ticket bought, all the way from Ghana, and she never left Germany, to my knowledge. Claimed the Bni heald her, a kind man took her in. Last I know.

Report N2 (added on January, 20, 2014)

Was contacted by her from Mate1 beginning of December 2013. She sent me countless photo's of herself and family. Storyline, born to Nigerian father, died in accident, mother East Indian, raised in Bejing,China. Mother remarried, last 3 months in Istanbul,Turkey. Desperately wants out of there. She talked to me everyday. She wanted money to get passport, Canadian Visa, Heath Cert. I would NOT send money. Said I need a vacation, I'll come get you. She said fine. Late Jan said she was sick, I sent her $200 for meds. Said I've booked a room there and taking a plane over. Before actually confirming flight I said to her I want proof your there. Take some pictures of street signs or landmarks with you in it, something to show me where you are. Oh I promise she said. Then disappeared.
I have been approached 45-50 times by SCAMMERS, no one got anything from me but her. She is very good but it was the little things that tripped her up. Photo Shopped Visa, dates on Pictures, backgrounds of pictures. Don't want to say more because I don't want the SCAMMERS who look here to get to smart either. She wasn't that smart, just the others where that stupid. I feel stupid for believing her. Looks like I wasn't alone. Sorry to all who did and lost.
