The odds of her being a beautiful blond and living in Kumasi, Ghana are very, very low.


In fact, the email address traces to an African male named Elton Boat, who is the real person behind the scam. If you spoke to a woman, she's part of the team of scammers. But she's definitely not the woman in the photo. He also uses the name of Elton Blaze Carter.


Romance scammers generally download the photos they send their targets from the web, though sometimes they use the photos of other victims they have scammed. If you are not convinced by what I've already told you, please upload your photos with your reply, and I will see if I can find further information.
