I almost fell victim to same romance scam. I almost sent a huge amount of money and was getting ready to send even more. I was saved by a secret investigator and her team lead by Mrs. Karen. They saved my valuable time and money.

SCAM Alert: Do not send money to Linda Bans
Someone named Linda Bans has scammed me. This person claimed to work for Wymoo and said they could recover my money back. Since nothing happened I contacted Wymoo at their official website and discovered Linda Bans DOES NOT work there and is just another SCAMMER. Wymoo staff was very professional and explained they could only assist with obtaining information whether or not the person is legitimate, but they could not recover funds as there is a legal process that needs to be followed with the proper authorities in Ghana. However, the information obtained with the background check can help if you want to pursue a criminal investigation. If you contact a private investigation firm to help you with a background check in Ghana, make sure you contact the official website and that the person you deal with has a corporate email address, not a gmail address. Linda Bans commented on this page too on Thu, 3 Oct 2013 00:02 EDT, (Page 10 approx. in the comments). The email address of this scammer is Do not send money to this person!

Embassy not being Honest in their work
My fiancé was recently denied a k1 Fiancé Visa because the Embassy in Ghana gave us an appointment after our application would have Expired!!! That is why they denied him and then they kept his fee which was $265. The US Embassy represents the United States and this is not the way we conduct business!! It was wrong to begin with the schedule the appointment knowing the application would be expired!!! What should I do ? It will cost me more money to go marry him in Ghana and then file for as Married!!! I need immediate help.. I Pray God would fix this in Jesus Name!!!!!

Extortion and Corruption at the Bank of Ghana and PMMC
Yesterday (Thurs Nov 19, 2015) I was attempting to purchase a gold export licence from the PMMC for $42,800 for a shipment of 55 kilos of gold I had purchased two months ago for $152,000 from the Nyarko family from Obuasi - Ashanti Region and Accra, Ghana. The PMMC had informed us (the family elder, the shipper, my representative and me) that all our legal documents were in order two weeks earlier. Accordinging to them, all we needed was to pay for the license. PMMC then directed us to the Bank of Ghana to pay the license fee. However, the bank announced that the license could not be approved until our sales receipt and 10%-20% of the value of the gold was deposited with them as protection for the seller and the shipper - a total according to them of $500,000 (which was 25% of the market value). We then submitted a signed Bill of Sale agreement and purchase receipt along with our $11,000 insurance policy valid for 30 days, but the bank still refused to approve the license (which did not exist two months ago when I purchased the gold.) I directed my representative to request a refund for the $42,800, but then the shipper and the family head countermanded my directive cancelling my refund request without my permission and against the protests of my representative. Because I could not afford to pay for the gold twice, I decided to terminate the purchase until I had the money. Then the Elder and shipper suddenly announced without any documentation that the bank would be holding my $42,800 for a month for my protection and the license money could only be used for the gold purchase. I told the shipper and the Elder that this was fraud and I was going to report them and the bank for fraud to the local authorities. I am looking for assistance about where to take my claim to a reputable and trustworthy authority. Any assistance or leads with this matter would be greatly appreciated.... my email is spindrft4200 @
