Report:  This person has been running what is called 'advance fee fraud' at least since last year. She was mis-categorised on another site, as a Russian Scammer, but she is actually operating out of Ghana. URL of mis-report on another site: http://www.delphifaq.com/faq/russian_marriage_scams/f6704.shtml ----------- 'Liz' contacted me out of the blue on YIM, and the story was - she had been born in Ghana, educated in Australia, and then had to move back to Ghana with her father (the story was her mother - an Australian - died, and her father - a native Ghanaian - took her back to Ghana); it was said there were financial problems as part of going back to Ghana. Supposedly 'Liz' was studying in Ghana to be a teacher, and, since she was graduated, she was wanting assistance to come work in Australia. The fly in the ointment was she wanted $$$ assistance to get a new passport (the old one was supposedly destroyed in a fire). To try and put me at ease, she referred me to another contact (her 'father'), who I also had some conversations with (david_andam@yahoo.com). There were lots of other sob stories along the way, trying to chisel other money out of me for internet and groceries, too. That was all pretty transparent, and I kept them on the hook, as long as possible so I could get the pictures and any other information I could. I also dropped a few coins, and engaged an investigative agency to check what little data I had gathered about 'Liz'. The data all turned out to be bogus, from their investigations. The phone number is a Ghanaian pre-paid phone, that doesn't have to have an ID presented to purchase it. The mailing address was also bogus, as I sent mail to it, to test it out. This mail address was also used in 2010 with the 'Russian' scam URL above. I initially sent some money to keep 'Liz' on the hook, and see if I could find out anything else about her (while investigating, too). Eventually, they reneged on the arrangement I set up, and had to break off / cut them off. Following are some highlights from my own YIM chats with 'Liz': Liz (11/02/2011 7:52:24 PM): hello are u there with me Liz (11/02/2011 7:53:16 PM): hi Liz (11/02/2011 7:53:55 PM): how are u doing Liz (11/02/2011 7:55:05 PM): so tell me more about ur self J (11/02/2011 7:57:45 PM): The location data in your profile was a bit confusing; thought I'd make sure you weren't in the USA....
