I was contacted by a woman through Thai Love Links, an internet dating site. She said she was Ghanaian living in Ghana but using a Thai friend\'s picture as part of her Thai Love Links profile. We continued to communicate on gmail and she sent me several sexy pictures. She was not black and did not look Ghanaian, more like Greek or Italian. She suggested that I send her $350 USD for a calling card so that we could talk to each other on the phone. She gave me this information for the Western Union money transfer:

Name: Eric Attipoe
Country: Ghana
City: Accra
Zip Code: 00233

She said that \"Eric\" was a friend who would pick up the money since she lost her ID card.

I met her on facebook, she says she is from Ghana, and likes me. i want to know more about her, she asked if i would send her something for Christmas. and that i could wire her money to her uncle. she said he will pick up at Western Union.
her uncles name is, salmon alhassan. and she says she is 32.
so i checked online if i could find a scam that reminds me of this, before i even think of sending anything...
she says she a has a son named Kevin...
her facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/matilda.anaba.3?ref=ts&fref=ts
she says she lived with her grand mom and her uncle, and that her uncle will talk to me today about her Traditions.
and she is interested in Marriage etc...
she says she lived in Ghana after moving from Colorado...
i am curious and sort of not suppose to do this online dating stuff so maybe i am going to hurt somebody or not but i best keep it safe...
i report just in case it turns out for worst. i can at least track her down and have her locked away in prison...
for us all?
