Other Comments:
Sheila is a brilliant chatter who can make you feel on top of the world, and she helped me a lot when I was feeling down. I met her, and she is a cute, sexy kid living in a lot of poverty and trying to help support her family. But she is a consummate scammer, and this is not the way to do it.

I first ran into Sheila on a prime dating site (from which she was quickly removed). Her story was that she was from South Africa, her father was a mining engineer who went to Ghana and met her mother. She was raped when she was 15 in Capetown and was frightened of local men. he rfather was subsequently killed by thugs, she had no local relatives so her mother had moved back to Ghana.

This story was clearly completely fabricated, as were the photos - in fact I got a virtually identical story from another scammer. it soon became obvious that while Sheila was cute and we got on really well, her dates for these events were all over the place and she knew nothing about SA. (Dont know why so many scammers go for stories like this when they are so easy to unravel, given that they have never been out of their own country).

For some reason I kept on with Sheila although I reported half a dozen others here, she was nice, didnt do cut and paste, and was a really good, titillating romantic chatter. So finally I laid down the law - come on the webcam and I will give you the experience of your life if I like the look of you, otherwise piss off. She was on the webcam next day, and much to my surprise I found her more attractive than the half-white model she was using.

So it was off to Ghana with me, a visit to the family, a lot of presents, an air flight and five days in a snazzy resort. For a girl who lives in one tiny room with three other adults from the family, cooks outside and has no tap water, this was quite something. Ghana is a bachelor's paradise, I could in fact have had a different woman every day with minimal effort. But I was having such a good time with Sheila who loves to canoodle as much as I do that it wasnt necessary.

The scamming - well she didnt seem sophisticated enough to have put it together, it took me a while to get any info there, but it seems she had 'taken over' the site of a friend who had eventually met a Yank online and gone to Florida.

She was starting to fall for me and I thought Id give her a chance to see if she could go straight. She had a lump under her arm, I took her to the doc in Accra who said it was a harmless limpoma; I left her to get it ultrasounded and maybe removed - a classic scam opportunity. Sure enough she came back with a price of $600 and when I spoke to the doctor - well this nice gentleman with the bedside manner didnt know what a limpoma or an ultrasound was, and he wanted $1500.

Sorry Sheila, you had to go. Cute, even beautiful; really good natured and a great kisser, I made love to you all day - but I cant keep you if I cant trust you.
