Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Have you been asked for money please?

Customer:

Yes, not directly from Jacob Carter, but indirectly as he requires some documents that I have to prvide from Ghana, and these costs money to get signed there.

Customer:

I am also scepticale to if he really has detained this woman late evening yesterday. She was supposed to travel to Norway with transit at Heathrow, but British airways had no scheduled flight arriving at Heathrow late yesterday evening, as far as I have found from internet.

Alex Watts :

What 'gifts' were they stopped for?

Customer:

The name of the woman is Kawusara Husein, but she use Tracy Morris as her internet name.

Alex Watts :

So you were emailed by the Immigration Officer?

Customer:

It was a gold bar that she had got from her late father, and that should be used if she wanted to settle and stay in Norway for a longer period of time.

Alex Watts :

ok - and you were emailed by this immigration officer?

Customer:

Yes, I got an email from the immigration officer at 23:49 local time

Customer:

He told me that the mentioned woman was just detained there

Alex Watts :

Ok - dont give me the whole email. What is the bit after the @ ?

Customer:

And as I was put up as the contacct person in Norway, I was supposed to take action and provide the necessary documents which shoul follow the gold bar.

Alex Watts :

Yes. What is the email address after the @ part

Customer:

it is gmail.com

Alex Watts :

Its a scam.

Alex Watts :

1) Someone wouldnt be detailed

Alex Watts :

That would only be for example drugs

Alex Watts :

2) Immigration would NEVER demand any payment

Alex Watts :

3) Gmail is a web based email address

Alex Watts :

All government emails in the uk end .gsi.gov.uk

Alex Watts :

Its a scam

Alex Watts :

Dont respond and don't pay anything

Alex Watts :

The person 'detained' does not exist

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

Thank you very much, I was afraid that it would be a scam, but life is life, you never knows... But this time it is all cheating, and I will not do anything more. Thanks again.

Customer:

I am satisfied, all people around me has told me that the contact from Ghana was a scam all the way, but I would not listen to them, silly me. But this is it.Thank you very much. Now I can continue with my life in Norway.
