I've been talking to this female from Ghana online for about 6 months she tells me consistently how much she loved me and wants me to pay for her Visa and passport which have already done and airline tickets to bring her hair what is the cost took bring I ghanian citizen to the US with a Visa To live here in the US for 57 or 10 years or is there a more inexpensive way to bring her here. To start of with, the chances of obtaining a visa is about zero, no amount of money will "buy" a visa, the US embassy staff are very much aware of romance scams, unless "she" has a VERY good reason to apply, there is no chance. IF "she" hasn't the finances and prove it to buy her own visa, then there will be no visa. Its a scam, you are being taken in, soon will be an accident, or medical emergency needing payment in advance, an accident "on the way to the airport", BTA, basic travel allowance, an imaginery "deposit" to pay on leaving the country, to be returned at some point. The fact that we get enquiries in this , and the Nigeria Forum, almost every week, indicates how widespread the problem with scammers is. The scammers prey on lonely vulnerable people and are totally ruthless in ripping those people off.
