Ah Helina, a lovely 38 year-old charmer from ‘Accra, Ghana’. Of course, Ghana has never seen my dear Helina, who is really using the name of Amanda Burrell (NOTE: there are other Amanda Burrill’s), a ‘Lady’ who shared her photographs with a website called Astro3x (now defunct). It wasn’t hard to find the history of this fraud, with search skills and a good piece of facial recognition software. Back then she was known as ‘Mandy’. Here is Mandy:
Now here is a photo sent me from my dear Helina, Nartey in Accra, Ghana. Her mistake; in one of her photos that she sent, whilst sitting on her computer, there was an electrical outlet in the wall that is only found in North America. It is nowhere else, and certainly can’t handle Ghana’s 220V current!
Here is her story; a short 8 days ago, I received this note from her:
My Real name is Helena,I am 38yrs old Divorced with no kids.. I have a blonde hair, blue eye, 5’8ft tall, 128 lbs, has a white skin. from Ghana With My Family you?.Do you happen to ever chatted with any lady from Ghana ?

I am a caring and honest lady seeking for a man to share the rest of my life with.I am looking for a man who is honest, faithful, loyal, sincere, caring and loving man who is willing to give me his love and heart. Well I’m a loving, caring, honest woman with average smarts, although not into Games. I have morals, looking for a man who is the same… A man of his words. I can be independent, but looking to find someone I can rely on hope you will reply with your pictures
Helina quickly asked if we could move our conversation to Yahoo Messenger. The advantage of that is that we could exchange photos and the possibility of viewing one another on shared webcams existed.
Once connected on Messenger, Here is the Messenger conversation from the first night, that stretched well into the next morning her time (same as London):

That was Day One. I didn’t even have to coax information of her. I was just my simple, charming self.
On a more significant front, Amazon has made my first book sales deposit into my bank account. There are two elements of significance. The first is finally seeing a little income from our book. The second is that I have waited the months that are required for the income stream to finally start; from now on (assuming that the book sales continue), I should start seeing a regular income. Now, where was that Ferrari dealership???
