Romance Scams is a website that originated as a Yahoo group to help people who were victims of romance scammers; it has since become the leading website to help expose scammers and help people cope with being victimized. Users of the website can view photos commonly used by the scammers and, with a subscription to the service, access a scammer database.
The United State Embassy also warns against romance scammers from Ghana. The United State government advises people not to send money to anyone who claims to need help leaving Ghana. The main sign of a scam is sharing intimate details quickly and then asking for money to leave Ghana, money to get out of the hospital or money to help pay for expenses related to traveling to America.
