Blackmailers and extortionists

Emmanuel Tetteh (Nicholas AnnerteyTetteh)

Everything started out well with Emmanuel. Then came the requests for transport, school fees, rent, doctors’ bills, and funeral bills –all within a few months.  His friend had enough and told him he could no longer cope with all the dramas in his life coupled by the requests for money. Emmanuel’s response was to arrive at the man’s office with the police, one of the arresting officers being Emmanuel’s uncle… He had a fake ID claiming he was 17, alleged that he’d been raped, and claiming that his anus was now bleeding. Luckily, he didn’t win but is now back online looking for his next catch. Word is the police are still looking for him.

Frank List (or Listowel) aka Frank Avorsey aka Kelvin Jege aka Kofi aka Jegejege aka…

Frank List aka Frank Avorsey

Frank is well known for providing ‘services’, usually for visitors to Ghana. He has a price list for what he offers and many people have paid and gone away satisfied. In fact, he has treated some visitors so well that he his public image is of someone honest and reliable. His charm and confidence have won him many friends..at least to those that have not seen his other side!

Because he has access to Whites, and therefore money, he commands respect from the people around him – enough to make him a gang leader? That is the rumour we are hearing and he introduces the young boys into this business, rules by fear and expects his cut of the money.

Most people are aware that many of his friends are scammers, such as Godwin Agomavi, Robbin Hernman, George Kosivi/Morris, Christian Agunor and Bismark Mensah. Surprisingly, people happily accept this and justify it by saying he has to keep them as friends to protect himself from them!

Frank Avorsey and George Morris

We know for a fact, that Frank repeatedly introduces his contacts to his friends even after they have scammed others. We know for a fact that George Kosivi/Morris is one of the scammers he continues to introduce to people who trust Frank with their security. Frank is expert at appearing innocent of what it going on. When he’s confronted about this, his explanations are confused and contradictory.

We also know that he has introduced boys as sex partners who are under the legal age.

In 2009, Frank claimed there was an agent in Accra who could obtain shengen visas for 2000 Euros. The agent was apparently called Richard Buju, email richardbuju@yahoo.com, phone: 0205 64 63 91. The phone number is actually one of Frank’s multiple numbers he uses. Richard Buju is none other than Frank!

See the section on Christopher Agunor to see what Frank’s Photoshop skills can achieve!

Fake hospital receipt

Frank also claimed hopsital expenses and emailed a fake receipt to collecGH5,000! The receipt is obviously fake, yet perhaps if you do not live in Ghana you would not know.

Ever wondered why Franks profile is luckkelvin2007? Because in 2007 his wife gave birth to a son who they named Kelvin.

The bottom line is this. If Frank is not a scammer and what he says is true – that he doesn’t realise his boys scam, that he cannot be responsible for them and that he didn’t realise the visa was fake, etc – then his judgement is not to be trusted. Frank has been made aware of all these things yet still continues as before protesting his innocence!

George Kosivi aka George Morris aka Bole

George Morris

George does not appear to have any profiles on dating sites at the moment, although he’s on Facebook. He therefore relies on introductions to his victims and his friend Frank List often does this for him.

Although not particularly good looking his charm is that he comes across as softly spoken, modest, kind and with a sweet smile. That is until he scams you!

After sex, you will find yourself meeting the police and some thugs and possibly Godwin Agomavi’s family members. He may produce a used condom as evidence of your crime, may claim he is under the legal age and that he is not gay and you forced him into it. You will be asked to pay money or go to prison, they may force you to go to the ATM and withdraw from your savings or with your credit card.

He has known to have taken people to Michael Agomavi’s house built for him by his ex-boyfriend from Australia. It has been  described as an open plan apartment, much bigger than the others in the area, with beautiful furniture and equipment. Could it be a coincidence that George’s email has the ending ‘au’ for Australia?

Godwin Agomavi

Godwin Agomavi

Godwin Agomavi aka Godwin Listowell, son of Michael Agomavi.

Godwin’s real profile is on gaydar as ‘sonylove’.

However, he does not access this much as he sets up many profiles with fake pictures on gayromeo. He sets up a new profile almost everyday and they are regularly deleted but he almost always mentions his “11″ cock”. His recent profiles are:

meet_looking
him_sex
good_sex
really_SWEET
Rom_fun
meet_your

The best thing is to check the profile we have attached (below) and note the points in red. Also note the email address and phone numbers below so that you can identitfy him. In these fake profiles he has called himself James and says he lives at Legon.

Currently ‘deep_for_love’ on gayromeo but the profiles won’t last long.

Godwin works hand in hand with his father, Michael Agomavi, who also engages in homosexual activity. Once Godwin has got you into bed, the father will burst in with his gang and maybe some corrupt policeman. Michael is a nasty piece of work and we have heard that he organises the young boys at Christian Village to participate in his criminal activities. He rules with fear and threats.

Godwin, not being blessed with good looks, (see ‘Three arrested for fraud’ in the links section). has used better looking men as bait. When meeting is arranged with your good looking contact, Godwin will be present. He will be sexually aggressive, coming on very strong, in order to get you  into bed. If you ever find yourself in his presence you should immediately make a polite excuse, without letting on you know something is wrong, and leave.

We have been informed that he drives a dark blue metallic Suzuki station car and also poses as a (gay) tourist guide. He sometimes produces a used condom as evidence to the police.

He has also worked with Christian Agunor. See Three arrested for fraud

Anatomy of A Romance Scam — April 21, 2008

fakers2go:

A very good post that covers many things that happen with scams in Ghana.

Originally posted on Romance Scams Blog:

The romance scam is different from other “419″ scams in that it preys on a victim’s kindness and openness, not their greed. This type of scam relies on creating a strong emotional bond and tie that, in retrospect, very often bypasses logical thought and common sense. The romance scam begins usually with personal ads placed on internet dating services. A photograph of an attractive person, very often stolen from a modeling website, is used. However, more and more photographs of prior victims (or ordinary people like you and me) are being used. Profiles include descriptions designed to attract the targeted audience. The scammer is often a widower or widow whose spouse died tragically leaving him or her alone with one or more children. The scammer’s parents are both dead and rarely do they have a sibling that resides in their home country. The text of…

Online Dating Scam Is Increasing, But Under-Reported

Online romance scams, a new form of fraud, is under-reported and increasing, and has victimized 230,000 people in Great Britain, costing them nearly $60 billion a year, according to a new study.

Monica Whitty, University of Leicester, and Tom Buchanan, University of Westminster, document the rapid growth in these serious crimes and how cybercriminals pursue and steal from their victims. They describe the devastating financial and emotional losses the victims suffer.

Sponsoring a child’s education – advice for the foreigner

Many foreigners have a genuine desire to help Ghanaians further their education. Unfortunately, scammers are misusing this. Based on the scams we have come across we want you to consider the following questions before you send money for school fees:

  1. How will you tell if the school really exists? Most schools don’t have email and websites. Many people just make up the name of a school. How will you check and whose word will you trust?
  2. Do you really know how much schools charge in Ghana and what they charge for?
  3. If the school is real, how will you know if the boy is actually attending?
  4. How will you know if that phone call from the Head of the school is for real and not just from his aunty or uncle?
  5. Likewise, how will you know if that email from the Head is not just a fake Yahoo account?
  6. Do you know what a real school receipt looks like – faking receipts is easy and often done.
  7. Do you know what a Ghanaian school report really looks like?

If you really want to sponsor a child’s education there are many legitimate organisations that do this. They will ensure the money is used correctly and also support the child in getting to school. Moreover they will monitor the child’s progress.

Scammers Beware – You Are Being Watched

UK security forces are working in Ghana intercepting scam mail and working with the Ghana police. This video shows the effects on the victims and how the UK police traced a scammer to Ghana and came to catch him. A BBC journalist also set up some scammers and got them arrested too. So all scammers should be scared. You are being watched.

CENSORED

You may notice someone has disappeared off our website. The third name from this report which mentions Michael and Godwin and..

We have also temporarily deleted the information on how to spot a fake visa. It seems that not everyone has the spirit to help others avoid scams, so we have had pressure put on us to remove this information. Foreigners sometimes feel they can ‘redeem’ the criminal and that they can ‘control’ their ‘boyfriend’ even when they are hundreds of miles away! Well, we feel people should get want they want and what they deserve.

If anyone is scammed by this individual please contact us, not to help the person who wants to protect him, but to help other potential victims of this blackmailer and scammer.

It is also important to break all contact with a scammer you have had an emotional relationship with. It is well known that many people start to feel sorry for the criminal once they get back into dialogue and start the relationship again!
