      The real Janessa Brazil is also a victim that has a right to her privacy. We will not assist someone to intrude on her privacy even if it is good intentions. Leave impersonation victims alone.

        I just wanted to get back in touch with her, as from when she stopped to do her webcams shows it seems to be impossible to get to talk with her again, as there are so much scammers in every form that i may be a victim as well now. I understand that she has her right to privacy as well as anyone should, but i just would like to know if she is fine, and if there is a way to at least get in touch with her…

How can i get in contact with your team to report my situation and receive possible help in understanding better how to get complete rid of scammers that are keep trying surely to get money from me using Janessa Brazil ? Is now almost 3 years that i have been trought a serious hell…Thats why i was asking if there was a way to connect with her, so i can at least put my hearth at peace, knowing the truth…

          • Romance Scams Now Editorial Team December 7, 2018 at 5:23 am

            You are talking with our team through your comment. As you can imagine, we have 4.8 million visitors to our website each year, we really don’t have funding to spend a lot of one on one time. However,t he whole purpose of this website is to help you understand, you need to spend more time learning.

            Regarding putting you in touch with Janessa Brazil, that is not going to happen. You are asking us to intrude on another victim – yes she is a victim also. To date, we have seen well over 100,000 fake identities using her photos. Do you think she wants to hear from victims who have fallen in love with her? No, not really. That sounds harsh but you are going to have to accept the reality of the situation – you do not have a relationship with her. You will have to recover from this without her. We suggest that you look at our self-help recovery program called RSN Steps and focus on yourself and your own recovery. This will not be easy and it will take time but you will get through it. But you also have to stop talking to strangers.

    My dad has fallen victim to what I’m sure is a scam. He’s sent thousands of dollars supposedly overseas to Ghana and he is in denial about the woman cat fishing him despite what our whole family has told him. The woman is using Janessa Brazil’s pictures and claims her name is Sizko Tatiana Ivonna. Apparently she pulled the ol “I got caught trying to smuggle gold on the plane and need $5,000 to get my clearance to come fly and see you card” and I worried that my dad is gonna continue to just donate money to this stranger. Y’all ever heard of this scammers alias before? I need some proof that I can I put in front of his face so maybe he will wake the hell up. Thanks

      Brittney, my dad has also fallen victim to this scam. She’s been giving him a story that her father died and left her gold which she is unable to sell in Ghana. She goes by the name Ishau, and she needs to $5300. to ship the gold to the U.S. My dad’s already sent her money for a passport, Visa, and her birthday. I’ve tried talking to him over and over again, but he thinks this woman is in love with him and wants to share her gold. I wish he would wake up.

Her facebook address is Her facebook page and Tinder account both contain this image×428.jpg Her Tinder account also contains this image×581.jpg Both of these images are in your gallery of Janessa above. “Tamie” also texted me two other images that I believe are pictures of Janessa working out in the gym. I have “Tamie’s” phone number, but I won’t give it here. The area code is 810 which is in Michigan. In out texts, she tells me she is a model who works out of Troy Michigan.

    Her facebook page states the following:

    Fashion Modeling at GD Productions Model and Talent
    Studied Cosmetology at Michigan College of Beauty
    Went to Venice High School (Venice, Florida)
    Lives in Troy, Michigan
    From Venice, Florida

    So is she also trying to scam people on facebook or what? I notice that all but 2 of her 123 friends are men. I have not made any kind of commitment to her in any way and have not tried to connect with her via facebook. She is rather tight-lipped yet very affectionate and friendly in her texts. She agreed to a voice conversation, but when I called, she did not answer.

        Yeah this so called Ghana tried to scam me on skype, Her name their was Juliana Nartay.. it did not take me long to realize despite he beating around the bush. From the U.S staying in the U.K looking after her mother who is in hospital.. Complaining about the house need repair the hospital stay bill she could not pay.. I strung her out by sending her after hospital care help links and handy man links to their websites, her reaction to advice like that was minimal.. She never directly asked but hinted to the max.. She told me she was given land to her, in the U.S. by her late father and a job to go back to in the U.S. But i knew that she was just trying to give me the impression that she had money but had spent it all on her mother, has to get back to the U.S. to keep working but cant leave because of the hospital bill and the condition of her house in the U.K. She must have got carried away and forgot because the next day she then offered me land to buy in the U.K and i asked was it her moms house, she replied, “what do you mean” i asked who’s land are you selling and she replied the land that was given to me and i asked do you have land in the U.S. and the U.K. No reply and the next day…… Her message was: i hate talking about money with you. because its inappropriate to ask for money from someone that you ve never met, mine problem is far different and i was thinking of getting help elsewhere to be able to return and resume my work and can pay off the loans and other monies that need to be paid. Just hinting all the time. I then came to this site and her photo is all over the place from one of the few photos she sent me..The one where she is leaning on the fence with the street road behind her and a white top and dark jacket with blue jeans..
