Gambia Scam???
Hi I recently joined an online gay dating site planet romeo and a man from Gambia approach me we start chatting and in quite a short space of time he declared his love and telling me how loyal he will be to me and wants to be together forever...all seems too good to be true...

I want to know is this quite a common thing that happens in Gambia? Is it all just a scam or is it all part of a sex trade industry?

How do I protect myself from being a victim to this?

Thanks, James.

Gambian - British Relationship
I have been in a serious relationship with my Gambian boyfriend for 2 years, known him for 9-10 years. What are the rules regarding him coming to the UK? How much is visa applications?
He has a good job and is from a wealthy Gambian family, I would be looking to eventually marry and have a family. How do I legally go about this?
