Hello,Thank you for the information and your question. Yes, my input is that this person is attempting to scam you out of your hard earned money. This is a pretty common scam these days and the last thing you should do is send anyone who says they have a lot of money or gold for you if you send them money first, any money at all. Below are a couple of links to discussions about scams coming out of Ghana (there are many more, just Google "Ghana gold scams"). They may take the form of "romance" scams or get rich quick scams where a lot of money/gold is promised for a small investment. If you were contacted via the internet, you can report this attempted scam to the Federal Government agency that works with Interpol on international scams, which is IC3. Their website is: www.IC3.gov These are the links:http://ghana.usembassy.gov/romance_scam.htmlhttp://www.mining.com/how-to-avoid-being-caught-in-a-common-gold-scam/ Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you

Can you send me a copy of a PMMC form or Essay Report for Ghana
Expert:  Marsha411JD replied 1 year ago.
No I can't. You have been contacted by a scam artist, so there is no such report for this situation. Please read the information at the links I provided and report this scam to IC3.
