Gold and romance scam

Hi there. I have been dating a lady who calls herself Sirina Mends. She says she is an afro american living with her grandmother in Accra Ghana, and needs money for papers to get back to the States.

She also claims to have a gold inheritance and wants me to help her get it out of ghana and sell it.

Does this sound like a scam ?

A friend is being scammed
by: Anonymous

My friend - yes really it's not me. He says girl he skypes with has tried to fly out, but was detained because grandmother had packed a gift in her luggage for him to surprise him with and it was Gold dust. So now girl can't leave Ghana because they took her passport and everything.

I told him to please be careful, it sounds like a scam to me. He swears she hasn't asked for any money. He says he has even talked to the grandmother.

It is a scam. I know it! He doesn't think so. I need to prove to him that it is before it's too late.

A scam????
by: Terri

Of course it's a scam! This is how they get people's money from them! They play the sympathy card and lie like crazy to get every penny they can. It also may be a guy you're talking to also.

They post fake pictures and everything.

DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY! There is also no gold involved!

Good luck to you.
