Thank you for you using Just Answer.Unfortunately, this sounds like a classic 419 or "advance fee" scam, which are very common in romance scams, especially with people from Nigeria and Ghana. Typically, the way these scams work is that you will be talking to someone for weeks or months and build up a relationship, perhaps even a romance with a person. Then, right when they are supposed to come see you, or as soon as the scammer believes that they can trust you, you are informed that something tragic has happened and they have been in an accident, or are very sick, or are injured, etc. And, they need treatment and need money from you.They'll insist that only YOU can send money (they suddenly have no friends or family) and it must be wired to them. This is a complete scam - they want you to wire money because funds cannot be traced or recovered once you wire them.Once the scammers think they've gotten all they can out of you, you never hear from the person again, and you're out all of the money you sent.One way to verify this is to ask what hospital the person is in, and call the hospital directly (Google the number of the hospital, don't trust any number or names they give you). If they are asking for money to be released from the hospital, for example, that's another sign of a scam.If you need clarification about my answer or additional information, please use the SEND or REPLY button to continue our conversation.
