My story begins one spring evening in 2007. I sit in my room checking email and of course, I naturally check my spam mail too... and then I come upon an email that says, if I do this and this, I can get 3 million dollars. It all started like a joke at first on my part. I thought, this should be fun and can't hurt right?
Wrong! we exchange emails and even phone numbers. Of course I checked the number and it was from Ghana, just like he said (Accura Ghana, just like the scammer post I posted earlier). I don't really remember all the details of each letter, this was 5 years ago and I deleted everything and burned all the papers I had on the case, I just wanted to forget it because I felt so stupid!
So I ended up sending them around 800 $ and I took a picture of my passport and I gave them info about all sorts of things, because they said they needed proof, after I said, I wasn't able to come down to Ghana to collect the money, I had to hire some guy to get it for me. When I was at the western uniion, he called me and asked if I had sent the money, because he was on his way to the courthouse to take care of everything. I told him I sent it and then he said everything would be taken care of.
the next day, he called me again and said that something went wrong and I had to pay another 200 $ and I was shouting on the phone because I was getting mad and my mother heard me. After I hung up, she asked me who it was and why I was speaking english and what money I was talking about... she then quickly got a hold of my bank manager and we had a little talk. he said I wasn't the first person to be cheated like this. we then talked for a couple of hours and decided to print out every email that he sent and I sent back to him and go to the police. Then the man emailed me again and asked where the money was and I replied that I wasn't giving him any more and then he threated to report me to the police in my kingdom (take note: not my country, but the kingdom it belongs to) and I just laughed at him and told him that I already talked to the police. He rang me again while I was talking to the police inspector and I handed him my phone and I never heard from the man again.
Since then, I've been getting some emails that said they were from Ghana and they were sorry that this and that man cheated me and they wanted to give me back my money and a compansation and I just told them that I just wanted to forget the whole nightmare.
here I am 5 years later and I haven't forgotten
