Dating chatroom/Cyber/Internet Scams - Advice

If you think you may be involved in a scam, please read through the link below. These scams are happening all over West Africa, not just Nigeria. This post is one I did over a year ago, and it is as timely now as it was then.

Dear Barb,

It's so sorry that here are many scams in this world, not only in Ghana.

I have had a friend from Tagged, He's very very nice man, i just have known him on net and on phone. I also have read this link , before i come here and read your ms.

I was so upset for myself, then i feel so sorry for those young men...

I haben't lost my money , i felt something strange when he asked me for sending goods to him.... But i was trying to take him out of his plan by my sincere heart.But now he disappeared .

with me, when you lose your money, you can find it in tomorrow, but The Belief to people is more important.

Dear Barb,

I pray for him, and i hope one day i will be there once , for witness what Ghana is, what Accra is.

I'm Vietnamese, Please give me your advice about the trip to Accra, how to get there from my country, how to get the VISA to come there.

Thanks a lots for your advice,
