Ghanain dating scammers
Maya Diamond is a Dating and Relationship Coach in Berkeley, CA.She received her Master's in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2009. Dating and relationship coach Maya Diamond says: "If you haven't met someone in person and they're saying, 'I love you,' there's a good chance they're a scammer, especially if they haven't made an effort to meet you.They are consequently kidnapped and you will be asked to urgently send them some ransom money to help them get out of the messy situation.Yes, this one definitely pulls on the heart strings because you will obviously want to do something to help but don't fall for it because it is simply a way to play on people's emotions and then scam money from them.Again, they pretend to be a woman from a Western country while all the while being based in Nigeria.They then solicit you for money for a charity they run in Nigeria or Ghana.
While most African singles looking for a date online are genuine, it cannot be denied that many online dating scams originate in African nations such as Nigeria, Ghana or Ivory Coast due to the low per capita income, high rates of unemployment, high rates of corruption and ineffective policing in these areas.
Whatever creative, captivating and greed inducing story you read know this: it's a scam.
However much you send, you will never see the money again.
You will then be requested to send a large amount of money for treatment and promises that you will be paid back ASAP.
It's a scam, don't send a cent, cease contact and report the scammer.
