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 @

is this a shamm or is our connection real
dear sir or madam,

I am writing to you behalf of Mackwin Realie Brown we have been in contact now for awhile and we have certain feelings for each other. He was born in Alaska and even though he is techniquely a Ghana citizen if he was made one while during a minor and minors have no say if they want as far as their parent accepts their new residency, and somehow I doubt that he was asked what he wanted or couldn't answer how they truly wanted. my point is this his father left them to survive in Alaska until he was a certain age and then came back and he and his mother were basically exiled to Ghana from what I can tell.
Mackwin's mother seems to have gotten mixed up into the sex trade and this according to Mackwin that his mom has a good relationship with this woman so maybe not. thing is either way he isn't welcome there. I would be more than happy to help this young man out but I would like to get him back into the staes where he belongs. he was born here, was sent away by an uncaring parent, then sadly then sadly discarded by the only on you had left, until he met me. I don't think it would be too much to for a paralyzed veteran to ask you guy to look into his story and check out his passport. now his passport is supposed a current US passport and I thought that he had to be a citizen to get one of those. if his story turns out to be true then I would like to help re-patronize him and maybe our feelings will have turned even more deeply. please get in touch with me at either or you can call me at 509-290-5709. thank you for looking into this and talking to him for a wounded soldier who may have finally found someone who doesn't care that I am in a wheelchair.

Ghana accra west africa is a crooked place
My soon to be wife went over there to go to school and she had to have a Ghana passport and a bunch of money to fly back and on her way to the airport she was ribbed and in the hospital now and we don't know how she is going to get. Home know cause her passport and everything them people stole when they robbed her and I think that some hostel Madame was for sure involved so what do we do about that state cause they should be protecting people and that place is no good for anybody and I don't know what to say or do at this point

I think too, I get scammed. I came in Contact with Rachel Hebert. He told me, would retire in Afghanistan and need a Package from the NATO, which I should take for him from a Diplomat. This Diplomat calls Jerry Wilson. Mr. Wilson called me from the Airport in Frankfurt/Main and said, that the Stamp on this Package would be expired and a new Stamp should cost 800 €!!! Rachel swear me his Love every Day and say: He could never hurt me or play with me. I should pay this and our Dream to be together come true.
I payed until now nearly 700 € incl. Taxe for WU. And now I should pay 800 € for a Stamp. This Story is still longer as I have Place here..
I want to know: Is there really a Diplomat in your Embassy, which calls Jerry Wilson. I have two different Pictures from this Diplomat. One of them is a dark Man (blackskin) and the other Picture is from a white Man. This from the white Man get Rachel Hebert as he - so he told me - asked the NATO, how Mr. Wilson is looking.
I have the E-Mail-Account from Rachel Hebert. He should be in a Peacekeeping-Troup. And I have the Mobile-Nr. from Mr. Wilson.
Can answer me fast? I said to Rachel, I would pay at 18. September. But I think, I shouldn't!!! Thank you!
