Met Josephine Tima on WHATSAPP and had been in contact daily for about 6months. During this time she would ask for small amounts of money as she was not working because of the corona v, so I sent about $900 in all which i did not mind, then came the news that her late father had left her 130kgs in gold bars in Accra and she needed $8,500 for the fees to have it sold to a jewelers in Texas.
She had all the fake documents and letters from her attorney. It was a well organised scam and clearly not the first time she had done this. When I refused stating my concerns she became defensive. I said I would contact her attorney directly and see what I could do. I told her I would send her details photos, Gmail, phone No, messages etc to the Chief of police in Kumasi to check out her story.
She broke off all contact.
She is Josephine Tima, half Ghanaian/Filipino, 28-30 years old, pretty, 4' 11" tall, from Accra but living and working in Kumasi as an interior designer.
