REPORT N1 (added on November, 22, 2017)
John (Brazil)

Karen Kynell at Singles Dating World claimed to be a Syrian refugee residing in a camp in Benin, West Africa. Strangely her profile at SDW states that she is from Newcastle in England. She sent me photos of her which I found at two image search sites, she has different names at some sites and two photos that she sent me of war torn Aleppo, Syria are also from the net. In an attempt to find out her religion I asked her for **** pics, this request she refused but eventually sent me a photo of her back, lol. This photo I found on the *** pages. She said that she wanted to come and live with me and asked me to deal with the camp coordinator as there would be a Benin Government charge for her to leave the country of $250.00. I wrote to this guy and he confirmed this charge but all air fares would be paid by themselves. The camp does exist in Benin but I can find no trace of the camp coordinator anywhere. He asked me to send the money by Western Union. In the photos sent to me there is a false passport pic. There are several words badly spelt in the same way in her hangouts messages to me and in the mails to the camp coordinator.

Hello John,

I did acknowledge your email on behalf of Karen Kynell a refugee girl from Syria, regarding her way to leave the Camp in Benin, actually I'm the Camp Coordinator here in Benin, our main camp at Lokossa was devastated by heavy rain flood last year, though the community here, has tried to raised up more hostels were some of the refugees has been staying for safety, the UNHCR has withdrew attention from running the Camp as usual because of inadequate funding, We here as the Authorities has been trying so hard to keep it running and funding, All what Karen needs to leave the Camp officially is a clearance document from Benin High Court, the clearance fee cost $250 to process all her legal papers,, I'm not in charge to process her clearance, Karen will give you info to send her fee to process the clearance , after her clearance she have to submit to us the clearance documents to submit to the authority in charge to file her Brazil visa process both air ticket will be our responsibility , you don't have to spend money for Ticket and visa it's our responsibility to book her one time ticket and visa after clearance, you have to send us the nearest airport close
