Isaac Anson AKA James Handy
Email Address:

Individual places a profile on Black People Meet with no picture claiming to be James Handy deployed in Afghanistan. He widowed with a daughter named Hannah that is staying with a friend, Isaac Ansong in Ghana. James claims to be on a peace keeping mission and has no access to any financial resources. He convinces me to communicate with him via Yahoo messenger and claims to be unable to video or audio conference due to owning an old computer. He professes his love and within a couple of months needs help with his daughter and ask for a few hundred dollars.

James asks if I would be willing to pick up computers from Walmart and send to Isaac as a surprise for his twin daughters. I agreed, but there was no internet order for Issac Ansong. Here is that email exchange...
