You will meet Ghanaians on all of the major dating websites and many of the more specialized chat rooms.
Often, you will have spoken with the Ghanaian's "relatives" and/or visa broker and feel like a part of the family.
Some people start to question the relationship after they receive two or three requests for money and no visit.
Relationships can last anywhere from 1-3 months before the Ghanaian correspondents will ask you for money.
There are several generic stories that are used: death or illness in the family, need to escape an abusive situation, visa and travel expenses, or arrest by customs officials for smuggling gold.
The majority of Ghanaian correspondents send pictures of themselves along with scanned copies of altered Ghanaian passports and U. visas to assure people of their existence and their intent to visit.
Pictures are generally headshots taken from websites (the most notable coming from a Brazilian transsexual website).
