Hello

How did you come to know the family who are apparently in such desperate need of your immediate help, please?

Did you get an email out of the blue asking for help?

Unless you actually know the family, and have met them face to face , it’s possible you are being scammed.

Here’s a link to the U.K. Foreign & Commonwealth Office website, and I recommend you scroll down the page to the section entitled “ Scams”

https:/…safety-and-security

I participate in a website which helps scam victims cut loose from their ( usually) romance/dating scammer, move on, and regain the self respect they lost due to being conned, scammed, and strung along, but “sob story/ dire emergency “ scams are also common.

Sadly, Nigeria and Ghana have a very bad reputation as sources of on-line scams.

Please be very careful and think very carefully before you send a single penny.

Take care..

Mon
