All I can say is Oh my gosh. Where do I begin, My stomach is now in knots. I've been so happy since Dec. 22, 2010, thought I've found true love when I least expected it. I don't want to believe I'm being scammed. Happened to come to this site by chance. Looking up information about GOLD prices, and buying gold jewelry in Accra, Ghana - Africa. Why?... Will here goes my story. After just reading almost the same type aned stories from a few other woman I had to reveal my story for some feedback.
Met this great looking, interesting, intriguing man, named Joseph Robert Williams from Norristown, Pa, (we live 84 miles apart), on Match.Com on Dec. 22, 2010, had signed up on the site 2 days prior ready for dating after my marriage ended 2 years ago. He winked at me and caught my attention. We've been talking for hours daily Yahoo IM messenger. I initially thought should I be doing this, I've read the warnings through the dating site. But I went for it, with much praying, hope. Am a believer in GOD. Nothing happens but chance. We've had just amazing and wonderful conversations. He told me he has his own company dealing with a multiple facets of interests including: he builds customer homes - is the boss from start to finish (is realistic to think he's telling the truth), renovates homes, into telecommunications, fiber optics underground communication systems, aluminum etc. Oh and he was born and raised in Switzerland (he does have this amazing accent), his father had a cleaning company done very well, his mother had a jewelry shop, done very well. He is an a only child, his mother lost multiple pregnancies. His father decided he should consider getting into construction/communication systems, etc. Switzerland didn't have much schooling or livelihood opportunities. He is 50 years old with 7 year old son, sent me 8 pictures. Been to half a dozen countries on business trips. Says he came to the States when he was 20 years old for schooling. Been here since for pass 30 years. His wife and a child and I think either his mother or her's died in a car accident 2 years ago. He's been ready to find and get back into a serious relationship. His best friend of many years, who lives in Holland (2 of his pictures he sent me say from Holland - 1 shows himself, and his friend and his family) talked him into trying Match.Com. He is amazing, we have so much in common, it's like we've know each other always, he is very spiritual and charming. Says he's fallin in Love with me, I also feel I've fallin in Love with him. It's kinda hard to put all in writing here. Early on in just the last almost 3 weeks now since we've met, he has mentioned preparing documents to set himself up for early retirement. But wants to reopen his Mom's jewelry business, will teach me all about his business dealings, will show me how to make jewelry as his mom has taught him (sounds fascinating) and how to help run this shop, plus he has other business interest for income on the side. He wants to travel with me. Take me to Holland to visit his best friend and go other places. I'm his soul mate and I feel like he could just be mine. He said he had a business meeting with a few men from China regarding aluminum 2 weeks ago but isn't sure yet needs to do more research. He's gone into lots of details about everything. He also said he has a business deal planned in Accra, Ghana - Africa to install higher speed internet services, telecommunication systems, etc. which he said is his business (self-employed) involves telecommunications and construction. We were to meet Jan. 1 2011 at a restaurant between both our homes. He lives 84 miles from me he says in Norristown, Pa. Think I already said that. The day before our planned meeting he says he got an letter from the Ministry of Health and Development in Africa that they want to finally do business and have him sign the contract and that he was needing to leave within 24 hours. So our meeting Jan. 1 2011 didn't take place. He has kept in close contact every day since reaching Accra, Ghana - Africa. We call each other briefly 1x's a day then go on-line for hours to talk. He said it will only take 3 weeks in Africa to complete his business deal. He's also sent me flowers and a teddy bear saying to prove he's for real and loves me dearly. And believes in Love at first site and that GOD put me and him together. Everything about him is so wonderful and amazing. Now the real kicker, I don't want to doubt anything about him but I know from research that Accra is right along the GOLD COAST OF GHANA. He said the man who has had great success and is with the company he's contracted with and will take him anywhere he needs to go, has also set him up to see a Chief to show him gold stuffs for investment for his Mom's jewelry shop that he plans to reopen once back in PA. He says gold is very very cheap, the people don't have concept of the value or worth of gold in the states. He just told me he can buy the whole lot of gold he was shown for $250,000 and that it is worth 2 million dollars. But he can only come up with $230,000. He's asked me, knowing my situation that I've been unemployed for 21 months, had a temp to perm job for 1 month in Nov.2010 that fell through, have no money except some monthly money just enough from my parents for utilities and food, till I sell my house/get job etc. Needing to give up my home since I'm in a divorce. He wants us to live together and become husband and wife in future.He's told his son a lot about me, he's excited to meet me. He's asked me to try and come up with $20,000 to help him buy this gold. It is our future to not be in proverty. He is very generous and said before he gives to Toys for Tots, Hatti Relief fund, Orphaned Children, etc. He wants us to be financially free and to be able to help others. In checking out info on Gold buying and prices I found this web site. Now Don't know what to think, or if his story is now for real. seems like it all is possible and he's telling me the truth. Could be a coincidence, the other stories here that I've read. Guess time will tell. I'm to meet him and his son at an airport in 2 weeks when he comes back to Pa, when his business is finished in Africa. Then we will go to a nice restaurant and talk more about our feelings and future together. Do I need to be concerned. From what I've read from others his story is starting to send just a little suspicious, maybe a scam. GOD knows I don't want this to be a scam. Sorry this got long. Any input be greatly appreciated.
