My father has been talking to a girl who calls herself Linda Owusu. She claims to be from Germany and living in the US away from her son. She recently found out that her father has left her with a large sum of gold that was left into a company that she has to pay the fee that the father promised the company that would be paid upon the retrieval of the bars of gold.
She claims she is now in Ghana and cannot come back to the states until she gets up the money to get the bars out. She knows he has no money so I'm not sure what her game is just yet. I decided to google her name finding a picture of her on the search. It wasn't a picture of Linda but of a Canadian named Josie Ann Miller.
I showed my father and he was initially shocked and upon confronting her she apologizes for lying to him about hiding that she was actually a porn star under the name of Josie. Now she somehow has found an investor to get the gold out but needs to deposit it into my father's account (remember he has$ 0.00 in the account).
She wants him to send it back to the company holding the gold so she can bring it back. I cannot figure out how she is scamming him but I am 99% sure that this is a scam.
