The stories may range from your person having an accident while in Nigeria for work to a helpless woman being stranded in Ghana; from asking for charity donations for Africa to a family member having a brain hemorrhage while in Africa. At the end of the day they all have the same basic plot – there is an emergency and won’t you please send them some money to someplace, Africa, Philippines, etc.   Of course, once you do send the money that is the last you will hear of them and your money.  But not always!

These scams can also escalate, to asking for more and more money.  When the first emergency is over, maybe the exchange rate left them short.  Or they didn’t plan on something.  So ever if you pay once – which you should never do – they will come back if they feel they can.

TIP:  Never Ever Send Money To Africa – it is a scam.  Cute white girls do not go to Ghana.  Handsome white guys either!
