Giselle Baidoo from Accra
I met a girl on Match.com who claimed to be a Christian from Wisconsin. After 2 messages she wanted to move it to text because of slow connection. After 2 weeks she wanted to move to Skype so we could see each other.
The video was of poor quality and lasted only a few seconds because (she said) of a poor connection. She then told me she was in Ghana with her mother, she was Canadian and her Wisconsin dad was dead and she had to leave the States because her stepmother was trying to kill her for her inheritance. She said she hated Ghana and would do anything to leave.
She eventually said she loved me and we could marry and have children and I could make her happy. She then, after about 5 weeks, said she was short of money for her internet and could I send her money to keep it on so we could keep corresponding. I refused because I am broke myself and she got angry saying I didn't Believe enough or that I didn't love her.
A week later she Skyped back that she had taken an advance from work for the internet but now she was out of money for 'foodstuffs' and she was starving could I send her some money. I was still broke and said I couldn't.
The next day my Skype conversations with her mysteriously disappeared. I couldn't tell what happened and I couldn't contact her again. After 2 weeks I got another cell text as to why I was not answering her Skype so I responded on Skype where she told me she could get her inheritance
if she got married and she loved me and knew I wasn't after her for her money. She wanted my email so her family attorney could send me the details.
She claimed he was an American and that he was working in Ukraine. So I created a gmail account and messaged the atty. He sent me an image of certificate of ownership of alluvial gold 224kg or 32 bars. I asked what I had to do and he said there was $3 a day for 5 years storage that needed to be paid before it would be released to her.
So I emailed the Ghana Ministry of Interior and asked if the certificate is real. After reading the scam reviews, I am not convinced that the Ministry is trustworthy and so I am going to stop baiting her because I had felt all along that it was a scam but wanted to know for sure.
Clues... The typing went from well done to sloppy and misspelled by turns. Her phrasing was strange at times. She would use 'these' for 'this'. She didn't sound Canadian. She repeated long sections with no spelling errors verbatim from weeks before, no change of phrases. She would become angry and curse at me that I was letting her down.
She said don't tell anyone, to trust my heart, it never lies. She would give me no direct answers to direct questions. She changed her age. Her Skype profile didn't match her age either and said she was from Accra even though she said she was from a small town.
Her attorney wouldn't google. There were lots others.
Oh, well, it was fun while it lasted.
