JOHNSON COLE FROM ACCRA GHANA (AKA. LORD PICKEY) X-Originating-IP: [196.44.96.241]


My mother was writing to this guy and apparently he was born in australia, lived in florida for 2 years but now is in Accra, Ghana workin in a childrens orphanage. She met him on relationships.com. I'm freaked cos he has our address and has even sent Roses to the house.

He was supposed to be flying to New Zealand lastnight but she got a call in the early hours of the morning saying it was 'customs' in ghana and they had arrested cole for taking over the legal limit of gold which would require a $35,000 bail. The number is +0023 324351 2947. Then a while later we get another call from the same number saying it is his paster Jonathon

Jonathan Okotah
419 okurudu avenue
Accra-Ghana
00233

The guy called tons of times I even talked to him on the phone couldnt understand him I could only make out he wanted the 35 grand and told me to go online, on msn. Funnily enough he logged into Johnson Cole's MSN (apparentloy he was held in customs). He told us we must send the money to 'the agent', cos we mentioned about getting the australian consulate to send it and he said no. This is the name and address he gave us for western union :

My mum has given him around $700 through western union. The guy has not stopped calling us saying Johnson Cole has been arrested and needs 35 grand. What a FREAK seriously... I wish my mum had shown me some of these emails earlie, because I can spot a phoney a mile away. I had NO idea she was sending money to some random off the internet through western union.


I got his IP address also from hotmail emails. When I did a search on that IP addess it came up as malicious.

Dear Sirs;



I hope you will receive this mail soon and I really only want to prevent people about a man called (dont khow if its true name) IAN ESSELN. He´s supposed to be a british citizen, born 22 Jabiary 1959. Have a child of 12 years old called John and lives in Nottinghamshire. Works as a Stockbroker (think is not true) and have a lot of contacts in Accra, Ghana.



Has recently founded a Fundation in Ghana.



I am sending you all the mails from Police in Uk, my peruvian embassy in UK, and others and you will realize that this man is like a thief.

He used to get in tocuh with women by that internet page WAYN. He begins to start a very deeply realtionship, very soon he'falls in love' with the woman, and suddenly a lot of problems appeared.



He has to travel for biz to Ghana and then starts asking , beging you to help him with some money because he has no family and is with his child in a distant country (Ghana) , he also asks for a lap top- coz he has forgotten his own in a taxi. He starts having so much troubles and really convinced women to send him alwys money but money has to be sent to a man called DANIEL OPPONG in Ghana - MOBILE 233 244 519577 (Always via Western Union)



IAN ESSELN MOBILE 233 246 319980

IAN ESSELN HOME 233 302 333238 (in Ghana)



I started not trusting him and found that also a peruvian girl living in Spain has become his friend. He also used to send every day beautiful lovly mails convincing how much he loves each women in order to convince them to continue sending money.



PLEASE DO SOMETHING. I know i will never have my money back, but want to prevent other people from this man. If you search on the internet I have found people who told about some scamers who used to get in tocuh with women and start asking same, first for a lap top, after money.



He promisses me he will come to Perú, first will get a visa and asked me for money for visa fees.



I will send you mails that were sent (but its not true) from Immigration office.



I have still this man in my messenger contacts and I do know yesterday he has added ANOTHER VICTIM.



Please search.



Im sending you all the mails.



I only want not more women get hurt by this man promissing to marry them, to bring you to UK only with the purpose of getting money always.



Thanks a lot.



Sincerely,



Cecilia Burga Yuy

Subject: Fw: INFORMATION ABOUT VISA APPLICATION FEE
From: tss@nottscc.gov.uk
To: ceciliaeva22@hotmail.com
Date: Tue, 11 Oct 2011 16:01:21 +0100


Dear Ms Burga Yuy,



Further to your enquiry regarding an application for a visa. If I understand correctly you have been dealing with Ian Esseln for whom you have no contact details other than one email address. This gentleman has apparently been arranging a visa for you, and you have an email confirming that a visa can be issued if you pay £721 to Andrew Renner at 11-13 Main Street Sutton on Trent Nottinghamshire.



I regret that none of this information makes any logical sense. A visa to live and work in the UK would need to be applied for via the formal UK Authorities, and cannot be granted by a private individual. You can apply directly to the goverment department at http://www.ukba.hom..ce.gov.uk/ - this web site also contains lots of information about eligability requirements.



The email you received does not look genuine - I base this on the following
•A private individual cannot offer permission to live and work in the UK
•The email address used is not that of the UK Border Agency (interestingly it is a free email provider also used by Ian Eddeln - see http://iansenapeace..t-us.html
•The grammer in the email is exceptionally poor
•Western Union is often used as a non traceable route for transferring funds - the UK Government would not ask for funds via this means
•The address given is NOT the British High commission, it is two private addresses in a small village in the countryside.
•The addresses given are not occupied by the two individuals you have names for





I strongly suggest that you send no money, and consider reporting this to www.actionfraud.org.uk/





Many thanks

Subject: INFORMATION ABOUT VISA APPLICATION FEE











Dear sirs;


I send you this mail asking for kindly information,despite perhaps you are not the corresponding authorized persons who can help me, but since you are in Nottinghamshire, I do appreciate any help you could kindly give me.

I live in Peru (South America) and was supposed to travel to UK. I have a mail recently sent to me giving the visa.


But im a little afraid because this mail doesnt have an official embassy address (thats what I think) but a zzn address.


Is it correct? Considering that I dont have any other persons to give me the appropiate information, I will highly appreciate your urgent assistance.


The mail asked me to send money for fees, but not to the Immigration Office, I have to send the money to a particular person.........'Andrew Renner' .

I know that I have to pay very soon, so , could you be so kind to confirm me is this a legal address .


Please do apologize me, but I only want to be sure if it will be ok to send the money for fees.



The person that was in contact about this isse was Mr. IAN ESSELN that told me lives in Nottinghamshire. He never gave me his address only e mail, would like to know please only if he really lives there, coz HE was the person helping me on the immigration process. Its very important to me to really know if this man was been lying to me for a long time.

Mr. Esseln told me he has a child and works as a Stockbroker in Nottingamshire, he has a charity organization for poor people in Ghana called Africa Peace Home.


Sorry for all the inconvenience and again MANY, MANY THANKS.

Will be waiting for your kindly response.Thanking in advance for your kind cooperation.






Yours truly,


Cecilia Burga Yuy

PLEASE. IF THIS A LEGAL ADDRESS I ONLY WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. OTHERWISE, OF COURSE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. AS YOU ARE THE AUTHORITY IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE I AM SURE YOU COULD HELP ME A LOT. THANKS FOR YOUR PROMPT RESPONSE.



I BEG YOU PLEASE TO GIVE ME YOUR ANSWER URGENTLY. PLEASE DO READ BELOW MAILS SENT TO ME.

Hello sweetie,
I'm sorry for not writing you since; I was very busy at work that is why I did not write you on time. Actually, i am here for someone who is honest, sincere, truthful, caring, and a woman with good personality and motivation. Sure, I do love traveling to different countries for a work transfer. I have been too many, i have my PR in Holland because my mom is from Amsterdam, Holland , my dad work as a Manager to investment bank in North Holland before he got retired and i grew up there in Holland after my birth in the United State where I have my citizenship.
I love natural things and i do not grew up from a large family because am the only child of my parents and I am divorce since sixteen years ago because my ex cheated on me. She had a sex with my close pal when I had an urgent contract of supply of lubricant to ExxonMobil in Canada. I chose to remain single since we broke up, but now I think i can't help it that the reason I am here to search for my love life because i want to be happy again with a woman who I call my love life till death do us part.
I have an 18 years old daughter, she is one of the reason I am looking for a woman to marry, she ask me to remarry so that i we be happy all the time. I promise her I will look for a good woman to get marry to last year but i fail her, so i want to make it up to her this year.
My life most would not have wanted to live, Many things I could not have changed, but it made me who I am. I am like a truck, strong, dependable, reliable, and sturdy, but I know how to be like a luxury car, soft, gently, easy, nice looking, I guess that is in the eyes of the beholder, right? But I am also like a Hummer, have my shield of protection, can't see all the many facets of my life, I am very private. I have to be. I am all I have and I have had many heartaches. I am an over-comer. Looking for someone to take me as I am, I do know how to leave my baggage behind. I am very conservative, but a little silly at times. I don't talk much at first, which you may not see here, but I open up more as I get to know you. I will not bash my ex, but it was a very hard marriage, I could say I regret it but it made me more caring of others, more loving and more understanding to what others may or may not be going through. No matter how much abuse I took I kept my daughter safe. I am very protective of my kid and those I love. I try not to worry over things I have no control over, but I do at times, I guess that is normal sometimes. I am not perfect and I don't expect someone else to be. I love to meet new people, I learn new things from each one. There are many things you can learn from good and bad. It develops character in you. I think someone who pushes your buttons can teach you patience and tolerance. And those who are kind and compassionate teach you how to love more fully and completely. I am friendly to everyone I meet even if it is with just a smile or nob, that's because I sometimes don't know what to say or because I am a quiet person. Sometimes a smile is all someone needs, it is the recognition that warms the heart sometimes.
mostly my daughter will say don't get dad to pray for you because God answers his prayers. Yes he does, not always as fast as I would like them, but I do pray and I do have a relationship with God. I am spiritual I do attend church I was raised baptist, went to pentecostal some, It is not what's over the door it's what's in your heart and the relationship you have with God. I also believe in a relationship you find what works for you and go with it. What may work for one couple may not work for another. I don't' believe in 50/50 relationship. Sometimes one may have to give a little more. Sometimes in a relationship you have to give a little more of your self. Not everyone will always be 100% in everything. I know how to be supportive, encouraging, always cheering you on helping you achieve to be the best you can be, whether pushing you forward, pulling you ahead or walking beside you, but always encouraging you to get to your goal and I know there are times to make you angry enough to keep going when things are not going so well, not angry to do something bad but to keep you going to get the results you are looking for and need.
I love exercise and I do exercise sometimes and I work mostly all the time also, during my leave I travel back to my house in Amsterdam, Holland, but sometimes during my leave I spend time with my parents and my only daughter in Holland. I would like to have your picture if you don't mind. So, what is your idea partner? And what can you tell me about love? Because all I need is love and I will tell you what I really need in a woman on my next email.
Regards
Johnson Cole
