Operating out of Ghana. Quite a number of login names but dora.asabre68 is current.
Skype search for dora.asabre will show other login names.

Hi I have been skyped by a guy who called himself Marcus Luttren, marcusluttren@hotmail.com. He intruduces himself as a military person from Afganistan or Pakistan, and as a single dad. His son name can be different, in my case it was Ned. He is looking for women and ask them to be his wife and declare that he is in love and so on. He asks to send your nude picture and then threten you to publish it if you don't pay him. But initially he is usually very "nice" and "polite". (I made up a picture in photoshop beforehand and was waiting for him to give his bank account number, because I was sure where the story goes). Tips to recognise him: He doesn't speak good English and makes lots of mistakes in writing, its also easy discern his African accent. He calls on your mobile and asks you to call him back, that should already be your concern. His mobile is +233240978233

More tips - don't tell him your real name and don't send him your real pictures!!! I have sent his data to Ghana's Interpol

The link is coming up as website not completed. 

Another scam at the moment sounds like the same pics of white erotic model, different name in use.  cecilia fosua4 . claiming to be from ghana. is on fb also under the same name without the 4 on the end.

Written in an email yesterday threatening -  to come up with money as they have more people lined up to scam and we are in the way.  goodness knows how.

I think I have just been contacted by one of these, I get lots of protestations of what could in fact be the perfect woman (he he he), waiting for the glamour model picture and the requests for cash!

There are more Skype-names:

both (apparently very attractive ladies) called immediately after I confirmed the contact but there was no entertainment possible, when I read in this forum I understand why...

These are all wellknown SCAMS. Users should NOT follow any leads, engage in ANY conversation etc. These (and other) individuals are experts at identity theft. To converse or otherwise engage with them is simply asking for trouble.


TIME ZONE - US EASTERN. LOCATION - PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA.

I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

If my advice helped to fix your issue please mark it as a solution to help others.
Please note that I generally don't respond to unsolicited Private Messages. Thank you.
