I "met" him in a dating website. He asked me for my permission of contact by email. In the beginning he "showed" as a christian person, fear with God, looking for his soul mate (he was a widower), he talked about the people by internet if there are real or not. we changed emails for 4 months. He gained my trust with "patience" he talked about himself as a good listener and I began to tell him my stuffs. One day he confessed me that I was true love and He wanted to be married with me. I told him in several times that was to rush and we have to know us better. He told about come here in my country, when he finished his duties in afghanistan. He sent me his address in US and his phone. but he told me about it was too dangerous to call him because in "war zone" the calls are investigated. In the 5 month of " our relationship" he wrote about he wants to build "our" future. He told about when he was in africa he save some gold bars (200k of that metal) and he asked me for I had to search the gold prices here and everything of process to sell here. I did it and I asked him for his passport (one of the steps here for that) and he send me. Then he sent me the ownership papers of "his gold". when I told him about the prices here he said that here in xxx the price is higher than other countries and when he finished his duties in army he likes to share his future with me for building an hotel near to the sea. When I told him all of the process here about the gold he "prefered" to kept me in contact with a "security" company in Ghana. Someday he asked me for money because in war zone he doesn't use salary or something like that and he "needed" to sent this money here. first he ask for $ 750US for the papers, then for $ 2.400 for payment to the "US agent", then $ 270US for stamps and then for 40% for the payment of delivery(about $7.500US) the emails were like this:

He kept me in contact to "security company" and they wrote me this:
when I made the first payment, I wrote to him this:
Hi my Dear Joseph:
The security company reply me, you can read this:
I'm here to informed you that we have received the money. And we have discus with an official UN delivery agent on how to deliver the box to you. And the delivery agent said that he can't deliver the consignment to you without our company issued an legal process of change of ownership with your name Mrs.XXXXXX, from Ghana ministry of justice (Existing law Court) and the depositor/partner will be responsible for the cost of such legal process because it is a compulsory, vital and legal backing up of the change of ownership if not xxx Government will not allow him pass away with the consignment.And we have informed a lawyer about that which he agreed to process the legal change of ownership on your name with amount of Us$2,400 dollars. Please kindly try your best to send this money across today or tomorrow so that the delivery will take a place once we pay the money to the lawyer for the legal backing up.
Very urgent response needed.
The money that I sent to them I have taken by credit card. I don't have more capacity. The bank didn't make the loan because I still have debts with it. On monday I'll begin my compositing course online and all of the money that I'll have come from my salary. Joseph I don't have any money for that I'm sorry. I was thinking that it was only that I sent to them. If you know what to do, please tell me.
Thanks for your response. However we are looking forward to receive the information from you for us to proceed. And I would advice you to send the Us$ 750 dollars, which written on the form we send to you through western union money transfer with this name and address.
Name: Benjamin David

Question: To who
Answer: to company
then, they continued ask for more money:
Thanks for your response. However I want you to know that we received the $270 dollars for the stamps. I will go and pay it to the lawyer and let you know once the document is ready.
then they send me a paper for sign it and later they sent to me this new requirement:
Thanks for your response. However I want to let you know our discussion with the delivery agent this morning, and the cost of delivery the consignment is U$15.700 dollars, and he said that we have to pay him 40% of the total amount here in Ghana to enable him process all the necessary papers for the delivery which have cost him U$7.800 dollars. Please I would advice you to inform your husband or your partner so that we can pay the delivery agent sum of U$7.800 dollar, for him process the away bills and other papers for the delivery. We are looking forward to your response.
Then I wrote to him this:
Hi Dear Joseph:
I forward this email to you. The security company needs more money. I'm sorry but I don't have more. I was put all my forces to have more debts for payed the last one. I told you that before. In this moment I have more debts than I support. I stop in this point. Talk with them.
he replied me this:
Darling woman xxx,
I'm really not happy that the delivering agent insist that we must pay the 40% for the total amount for delivering this gold over there in xxx. But I have understand what he mean because its will enable him to process all the necessary papers for the delivering of this gold over there in xxx. Honey I know that you don't have more money also you know that I can not be able to do anything from here in war zone. My love I will advice you to look for this money anywhere and you can fined someone that you think will assist you with this money and tell him or her about this gold business and after i sell the gold. Then I will be giving him or her some percentage for his or her assistance. Honey you really have to do what i told you and get this money because this gold is in your name now also you're controlling it on my behalf now. Honey do what I told you and don't keep me waiting because you know that I want this gold to be deliver over there in xxx as soon as possible. You don't have to worried about your debts because I have already assure you that I'm going to clear every of your debts immediately i sell this gold over there in xxx. Honey I love you so much and please do what I told you now to raise this money for this delivering agent to deliver our gold over there in my destination xxx.don't keep me waiting to hear from you because I can not concentrate here in war zone.
and I replied again:
Hi my Dear Joseph:
I understand all of you say. But I think that this is not the only amount that the agent needs. The last time I asked to Mr. Benjamin and he told me that it was the only amount. Each time they same the same. And the next time is more and more. If the hypothetical case that I found someone who I can trust this and lend the money. The next time it will be more. Do you have some friend that lend this money? I try to found someone, but I'm not sure about if I'll have lucky.
have a nice day
HI my Dear Joseph:
I have been thinking all day about this. Is it possible that some part of the gold it will sell in Ghana for this payments?

My love I have already told you that I can not be able to do anything from here and I will advice you to follow my instruction now and raise this money to send to the agent for him to deliver this our gold over there in xxx. You don't have to worried about anything because I'm with you always. Honey part of this gold can not be possible to sell in Ghana because you have to apply for some papers which will cost money to get also the price of gold in Ghana is not high.
