This is a slick lady. When I found her pictures on this site, she claimed that her girlfriend took those pictures of her and post them on the Internet dating site posing as her. I tell you, she is hard to catch. She quickly falls in love and ask for money, anything from travel money to supporting her.

Others names - baballe mohamid. she contacted me on mate 1 . we began chating and did so for several hours every day since august 09 . after a couple of months she started talking of love and wanting to come to me ( I kmow I'm stupid). but was always needing money for this and more money for that . I fell for it all hook line and sinker. i did contact the ghanian embassy to verify her visa and passport aplication but there response came to late i am afraid. she has fake documents. and she still insists - that why she is not here now (if you can believe it --haha) is that i did not send the 2500dollars ghana requires to leave the country !! she has been caught red handed and still refuses to admit anything. I really think someone is just useing her photos because i have heard the voice of the actual person on her website and it is totaly different from the person that has called me.I wish I had gotten all this information sooner-, about $3000 sooner. I just hope this helps someone else. there are thousands of photos of her on her website ---and there is NO MISTAKEING THOSE EYES

She was banned from this site. I had been chatting with her thru yahoo messenger and it was the tried and true story. Parents died, she a Christian, looking for her real love, etc.. Poor grammar for someone who has a college degree which is another dead give away. Didn't have a webcam which is another red flag and when asked if she had a digital camera and she replied yes, I asked her to take a picture of herself holding up a sign with the letter 4UT. Of course it was one excuse after another once I asked for the sign. I suspect that someone else at the site either got scammed by this person or did what I did and reported her. She was banned today. I have her photo's and her passport that this person sent so you can post them here.

About three week ago I was contacted by this person from but having been nearly stung by a similar scam out of malaysia I was treading very carefully with this one. and it seem that I was right Shela Rae is now opertating under the name Linda Odoi and she will not give too much away about herself apart from she is a nurse currently not working but living with her uncle in Ghana says she is orignially from the states and wants to move out of Ghana and keeps asking for money to be sent for food and internet also asked for a mobile phone to be sent over to the postal address given here, and only got that due to persistance saying that the address of Abeka Lapaz, Accra, Ghana is too general for anything to be sent. she uses all the right phrases when talking to your like God will bless us and will keep us and help us to be togeher She also likes it if you have a webcam that you use it so that she can see you and will eventually try to get you to do sexy things on the cam for her.

Report N15 (added on February, 8, 2011)

I met an individual on the BE2 dating website. Her location said a town that was the same as mine, bot when I got emailing her she said she was living in Accra Ghana. I thought it was odd but it could be possible. She said she was living with her auntie as her parents have passed away. She said she was a nurse that could not find work. Her emails got very serious expressing her love for me. She was very good with her words, I guess from lots of practice. After a few emails she wanted to come to live with me. In order to do that she needed money for passports, medical reports, police reports, immigration (visa), and a plane ticket. Her auntie got involved to by demanding her niece be married before leaving Ghana. Again more money was requested. I started to become suspicious as the name for the MoneyGram was different than hers. She was using Veronica Bridgette in her emails but the money was to go to Veronica Gavor. I did a search for Veronica Gavor on the internet. The name came up on anther scam-reporting site. Similar M.O. was used. I brought it up in an email and got quite a reaction. I went along with the excuses to see what was next. Strange part was she did not have a passport from my country even though she claimed to have lived here???? She then provided documents (visa, medical report, etc) and told me the embassy had the remaining money to book her plane ticket and it was non-refundable. The documents were fake as can be. Different fonts were used on the documents. The font used by her to adjust the information on the medical report and the police check were identical. The story about the embassy booking the ticket was completely wrong. She later changed her story that a travel agency had the money and would not return it. I confirmed the documents with an official at the embassy by email. They immediately said they were bogus. Lies only work a couple times. The pictures were a good one too. They are pictures of a model (most likely american). The first ones were basic pictures but got better after a few days. You can tell they were model photos. Beware of this one!!! She got me for some money but it could have been a lot worse.

Report N25 (added on August, 30, 2011)

Linda starts out by contacting you wanting to chat. She presented herself as an American from Austin Texas, now living in Ghana. The first impression is that she seems like a decent churchgoing pure girl, just looking for an honest good man to be with. She claimed to be betrayed and also beaten by her previous men.

Then, after just a short while of chatting, shes starting to move suspiciously fast. She was sending me pictures even before I asked for it. She seriously talks about having a life together before knowing anything about you. This was before she even had seen a picture of me. She wants you to close your dating site account and move to Yahoo or Hotmail messenger services. She starts to insist on exchanging phone numbers, get your exact birth date and going on web cam. (Web cam chatting services often requires your phone number.) Birth dates and phone numbers etc is typical information needed to do frauds. If you held this information back, she will just keep on insisting, blaming you for not trusting her. This is even so if you havent accused her for being faking at all.

At first you got the impression of a girl being charmingly nave trusting and immature. Then you start thinking shes just dumb, and feeling a bit sorry for her. Then I realized much of this was a bit too strange to be true. Her English various very much, indicating she can be different persons working on you. Too many things just didnt add up.

Then I started searching on scammer sites. Guess who popped up on this and other sites? Linda Myers, Gahna. With people telling a quite similar story as mine is. She hasnt got around to asking me for money yet, but she probably will soon. Im planning to play along for a while just of curiousity.

Dont let her charming nave and trusting character fool you. Thats just her style. This woman is probably very clever.

This coming Saturday, they sent me an email with a KLM flight booking, cost 1,463.34 dollars. In the following mail on completing She asked me the amount via Western Union to send to them so that we would finally be together. Then came a bad feeling, and I told her I could not and would not pay. Then came the reply that I can pay? As your mother would pay half. It was my time on the Web to search for her. Here I found you. I wrote you, that I know what makes you. and I want no more contact. She wrote to me then that it's not your money order. What we write mails again.

Using the screen name Banshen, she contacted me on the KoreanCupid website on the morning of 9 April 2012. She had no picture posted on her profile but was listed as living in Taiwan. She then explained her father was part German and Korean and died of excessive smoking. Her mother was from Ghana and after her father's death they moved back there (although in our lengthier chat on Yahoo! the precise elements and details of the story changed). In any case, she knew very little about Ghanaian current affairs. I Googled Accra and asked her how far she was from a couple of locales and she said not far, whereas in fact they were quite some distance away. After saying she lived in Accra at first, she then said she lived in Nsawam an hour away and had finished her nursing training at Western Hills College. Her story is very familiar to that of a Christiana, who initiated contact with me several weeks ago on FilipinoCupid, and her story was about the same. The precise details of all the inconsistencies in her story are not that important compared to her photo-sharing with me three pictures of a blond-haired white girl that didn't look the faintest AfroAsian, photographed in a house with decor not the faintest African. It was by the pictures on this site that I recognized her (I saved the ones she sent me, and so I was able to compare them with the ones posted here). In addition, she was at first dodgy when I asked for her complete mailing address, and when she finally gave it to me so I could send her a card, she asked for me to buy her an iPod and include it. She also seemed too quick to mention FedEx and DHL. Over the course of the chat, her English went from misspelled words and faulty grammer to perfect writing, almost as if there were really two people taking turns writing back to me (something I have noticed with other scammers as well). In addition, she mentioned a little brother whose pictures she didn't have to show me, and when I asked her whether she really believed I thought those really were pictures of her she sent me and whether she would send me pictures of the real her, she did not deal directly with the topic. At that point, I sent her a few pictures of me, she failed to reciprocate and I shut her down and added her to my blocked list on Yahoo! Earlier in the course of the chatting, I reported her to KoreanCupid, which, after a short investigation of the part of our chat I forwarded to them, shut down her profile. I think whoever is behind her is very prolific and uses more pictures than just those of the ones from website mentioned on this site.

Posed as helpless girl stuck In Malaysia with her mother. I contacted her and she recontacted me. We collaborated for 3 1/2 months until I was directed to this website where I found Shela Rae aka Cassandra from New York. What started my suspicions initially to lead me to check her fraud status was that she couldn't identify with me miles or feet in distance. She could only tell me metric units. She received many thousands from me through Western Union and provided fraudulent numbers of fake hospitals and doctors. I believe she is a man because when I pressured her to cal she sounded like a man pitching her voice. After hearing Cassandra's voice on I finally knew she was a fraud. The story ended with me me severing ties and I'm in the midst of contacting a Malaysian lawyer and private investigator. I don't have any hopes but I'm attempting to find this Maggy Jordan and hopefully she will lead me to who is online commiting fraud. There's a profile on Facebook under same name.

Two days ago I had my profile on Match and was winked at on the site by skygal400. I went and checked out her profile and it seemed to be about a 90% match to mine. The profile said she was from Billings Montana, was 30 years old (I am 45) and was looking for men from 34-55. All the grammar and punctuation in the profile looked correct. The photo she posted looked nice. I though it a bit strange that someone from Montana would be looking to date someone from Virginia but ignored it at the moment.

She sent me an IM and we talked a bit. She let me know it was her first day on the site and she was a bit new to this. I told her I just got on the site the day before. As we talked back and forth it was just like she was saying everything I wanted to hear. Not knowing if she was real or fake, I kept chatting with her to find out more about her. I kept all my comments honest in the event she was real but gave her no real significant info about me.

During the conversation she did mention she was from Ghana but never left the country. I thought that was very strange to have a profile from Billings if she was from Ghana but I continued a bit.

As we talked I noted that her English and punctuation and capitalization were not at the same level as the write up in her profile and again thought that was strange. I asked her and she told me her friend from Montana helped her make it since she was not that adept at navigating the site. I thought that perhaps if that was true that could explain the difference. I still thought it a strange coincidence that someone could just get on line and immediately find me and want the exact same things I do. Once I told I was interested in getting to know more about her it seemed like she was set on me and forgot about everyone else. Once again, I thought that was odd. Unknown to me at the time, she also went and deleted her profile.

She asked if I had Yahoo Messenger and I told her no. She said if I had it we could use that instead of the site. I told her I would try to download it later. She said fine but until then we could email from our own accounts. I said sure and gave her my Yahoo account address that I use for superfluous things such as this. She seemed happy about it and immediately sent me an email with two photos and let me know she sent it. I opened the email and in the photos she was gorgeous. Once again I thought this was too good to be true that a beautiful woman who wanted everything I did was already to be close friends after chatting for only 15 minutes. We emailed some more and I said I needed to go. She asked for my cell number so she could text me her number and then the next day when I wanted to chat again, I could test her and tell her to get on chat. I said sure and gave her the number.

Yesterday I was looking for info about Ghana and found this site. While she did not do everything listed on the list of scam items, many things were the same and I became a bit more suspicious. We talked again yesterday as well and still, she seems EXACTLY what I am looking for and wants to continuous our relationship. I also notice that it takes her a long time to respond. Im not certain if she is typing my text into a translator before answering or not but there is always a very long pause before answers. I''m just not convinced she is real and hope you can check it out.

She initiated contact on POF. She messged me there and we talked for several hours. We have corresponded for about 2 months. I didnt notice anything out of the ordinary at first. I sent her airtime for her phone a few times and then she said she wanted to move here. I ended up sending her money on 4 different occassions in the amount of $675 through western union. I sent the money to Carol Nickerson and also to Wahab Ali. I thought it was all good until the last couple of days and I started getting suspicious and I talked her into giving me her password to her email and mesenger and I found she had deleted a lot of men from her contact list but she didnt know yahoo saved them so you could restore them. I was more suspicious. So I tried to look up how addresses were formatted in Ghana because I found something in her contacts in email that i believe now was an isp. While I was looking up that format I came across this website so I joined and whil searching through Ghana I seen a picture of her. I looked through her pictures and I seen a few that she had sent me. We corresponded mostly through sms to my phone which i do not have them on my phone buy yahoo may have in my messenger. My phone does not hotd a lot of messges. She only emailed me a few times. We talked a lot on messenger also and I have all the conversations... The outcome is I found out who she was and I have told her through her yahoo but I still have her password so I can go delete them. I could stay in contact with her if need be. I have been in contact with another man that she has tried to scam and he is going to email me other email addresses and phone numbers that he has of hers and I will give those too... I have another phone number but I cannot find it at the moment. The other guy also has a lot of photos of her too... Let me know soon and I will do what I can to help catch her and her so called uncle Wahab Ali.......

This scammer is at it again. Most likely a man. Using the pictures of a porn model. English isn't good. A few things I noticed in the profile. Made out they had 5 or more children and if it's God's will they will have more. How noble. They might be willing to locate. I wonder how many men would be interested to leave a western country like mine and go and live in a poor third world African country. This girl is a model from the USA or Europe. I wonder if this poor model knows how often her pictures are being used by a scammer/scammers. I hope men will look at the pictures and what I have wrote. You won't meet this girl so don't send money and don't go over to Ghana. Keep well away from that place and hold onto your money or you'll be sending a man or men money. It's obvious some men haven't done their homework or this scammer wouldn't still be trying to scam.

Checked out mate1 surfed through there site when i got an invite to to start messaging a woman by the name of Regina Ofori. I accepted of course and immediately started to converse with this lady. After about two weeks of conversation she tells me that she's not feeling well, that her stomach is giving her lots of pain. A few days later she told me that she went to see a doctor and that the medication she was to take was expensive that she only got paid once a month and she was broke. She tells me that she needs $100.00 that this will pay for her medication, so like an idiot i sent her the money. Later into our conversations she is needing money again this time for bills, airtime to be specific. And then we talked about her wanting to come here for residency, but this how it was worded, she had made it sound like she wanted to get married to me and live happily ever after. That she needed money for her passport and that she would cover the airfare. So with everything that was discussed Regina Ofori made off with exactly $1470.00 This lady can throw out her charms like no other, She made the mistake when I had ask to call me so that I could talk her, hear a voice, match it with the photos she had sent me. This morning Jan. 25th 2013 I get the call and this wraspie smokers voice is on the other end of my phone, difficult to understand, very strong accented just plain rough and thats when I knew this wasn't the person on the photos. This is why I am here sharing my story with you all to be careful. I am still talking to this lady in hopes that one day she will be caught and brought to justice as for the innocent men like myself out there searching for that one very special woman who has been scammed, can finally get some closure with there financial losses.

We flirted on Badoo, she gave me her email address and after this we chatted on Google Hangouts. She told me that she didn't like Ghana as there were too many blacks there. I asked her if she would consider living in another country and she told me that her passport needed renewing but she didn't have the money to do that. I asked her to send me more photos which she did, all of Blue eyed Cass, I asked for explicit photos and she refused, at this time I guessed I was dealing with a Male Muslim. She later asked me to send her $150.00 to renew her passport and supplied a Western Union address. After this I desisted and told her that she was a scammer and I sent her a couple of pictures of Blue Eyed Cass.
