Good day. Please do NOT send any money to her. There are simply so many scams coming out of Nigeria and Ghana and these people prey on others, particularly through the "Love" or "Friend" scams. They will find people through online sites and make connections, stringing them along and then find reasons to ask for money. The government of Ghana would never ask you to send money to her. I also imagine that the request for you to send money is such that they want it through Western Union or MoneyGram or some other form of non-traceable money transfer or bank wire-transfer. I can tell you that I have been a lawyer for years and police officer for 20 years before that. Simply based on what you have described, this just screams SCAM. There will be a real person who you likely have spoken with, but I can assure you that this person isn't who they claim to be and you'll only end up with heartbreak and out a lot of money. The fact that your own gut instinct is telling you that this sounds wrong is a sure sign that what I am telling you is accurate. I look forward to hearing back from you. Jim

Here is a link to a TripAdvisor warning about these Ghana dating scams. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293797-c64880/Accra:Ghana:Ghanaians.And.Internet.Dating.Scams.html And a couple of links to pictures of stolen photos used by these fraudsters. You might find your "friend" on there. https://www.google.ca/search?q=ghana+dating+scam+pictures&biw=1600&bih=799&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=zMyNVeGuBYmZyQSltb4Q&ved=0CBwQsAQ http://scamdigger.com/pictures-used-by-female-scammers/ Jim
