A Briton scammed of €20000 by a fake African girlfriend he met online has threatened to destroy Africa as a whole.Simon frost, 75 couldn’t believe his luck as he was paired with his supposed dream girl “Eva“. A young beauty who promised to set up a family with him.
Thetraffickedblog however discovered that the woman in question used a portrait of a US porn star “Briana Lee” 28 whose photo has been frequently used by internet fraudsters.Unfortunately, Simon turned to internet dating after his wife left him after 10 years.
He signed up on a website “real s*x contact” in February 2017 and was introduced to Eva two months later, supposedly a Ghanaian hospital worker. Simon seemed to fall in love with the picture she sent and was persuaded to part with more than €19000.
During their conversation , he once teased out his bank cards but when it was time for them to meet up in UK, Eva was nowhere to be found.
He happened to be one of the people who always adviced people from falling for the same scam.He said;
“I genuinely believed the relationship was real. I don’t understand why anyone would treat me like that. I had good intentions and was looking for a genuine relationship.“It has put me off trying anything like this ever again. “I would rather be lonely than go through all of this trauma.”
He went further to say that they frequently called each other “babe” and “husband” and hoped of starting a new life together and getting a new house but little did he know that she was a spinning web of lies to get him to flee with his money.She said she needed cash to get court documents so that she could access her father’s £5million inheritance which included a stash of gold.
Simon sent £6,000 savings, £3,000 on credit cards and two £5,000 advances from payday loan company Amigo.He also paid £1,600 for Eva’s flight to the UK in August– when he expected her to repay him.But Eva failed to turn up and when he was unable to contact her it became clear he had been scammed.
