From Sheila Bundee comes a complete bait of over 3 and a half months comprising about 250 or more emails - serialized in the grand detective tradition!
Hi Scamo friends.. in my experience the gold scams go nowhere...But when a gold-selling lad proposes marriage to me and tells me I am the only woman for him, I cannot resist... This bait of 3 and a half months is a Ghana-Aussie-Mexican love triangle with a cast of fake diplomats, fake lad websites, a trip to Cuba..a little of everything thrown in, even news ripped from the headlines..
There are MANY emails here, it's no fast read but well worth it. This complete bait ended pretty much just as I wanted to steer it from the beginning, and what a long strange trip it was...perhaps the first bait on Scamo where the BAITER is in rebel territory.!..and in the end the lad has the gold mine and I gave him the shaft...
SHEILA BUNDEE--age 47, owner 'Sheilas' Discount Koala Ranch' -- outback Australia...pub crawler..Shops at Wallaby-Mart. Has cousins living all over..Usually married to Ted 'Crocodile' Bundee but single this time..
DOROTHY WIZOFOZ -- age 29, demure parrot smuggler in southern Chiapas State, Mexico...and Toto too!
PHILIP 'PHIL' NANA -- Accra Ghana -- different ages and people in his pics. Daddy-the-King owns the gold company and he delivers the BULLion...a Rastafarian..dumber than a box of hammers.. His classic line -- ** i don't have any woman in any where you alone is the woman**...and this barely-literate lad absolutely loves to type, all hours day and night, definitely high at times.
**DIPLOMATE** PETER MACK -- -Accra...this is 'Phil' also. Pretends to be with a fake delivery company with a *websit* of their own..Emerges to both women a few weeks apart..
DIPLOMAT SULIEMAN KOFI -- Accra...Lad listed to contact at the fake website, so I did..He wasn't really involved with this basic scam, just tangentially, but I contacted him and got the info that I needed...
DIPLOMAT DOGBEY MCROBERT KWESI MENSAH -- on Facebook -- bag man/delivery boy..I call him DOGBOY.. he sent a passport.. He is the one supposedly delivering the 50kg of gold to Cuba... This is definitely a different lad called in on this scam after some difficulties...
PRINCE EMEKA/ EMEKA PRINCE -- -on Facebook -- name on an accidentally sent folder -- lame excuse given about it and this could be Phil..
GOTONI NIVAKA -- -lad in charge of deliveries at another fake website -- -and all I did was antagonize him from the get-go... I'm pretty sure this was also DOGBOY..
AZUBUIKE BRIGHT -- on Facebook -- -the 1st western union bagman for Sheila..
AMO KORSAH KWAGWO -- - western union bagman for Dorothy....
VICTOR ATALI -- another w.u. bagman, on Facebook, for Dorothy..
RICHARD BEDIARKO NKRUMAH -- on FB, w.u. bagman for Sheila....**grand son of President Kwame Nkrumah**.. yeah right
NOTE -- - the only punctuation that 'Phil' seems to know is the word *don't*, which he gets right most of the time... ..otherwise there's no other punctuation or paragraphs...aside from the opening scam intro, every email of his was just 1 long sentence...for clarity and sanity I've tried to break it up when possible...at times his syntax/ spelling are either atrocious or unintentionally funny...I lost track of how many times he said *ok* and *so dear*....

[...*true* for 'through'..a check on 'Philip Nana Gold Scam' shows this same one posted on scamwarners.com, dated March 2014 using a hotmail address....gold-scams are low on my list, so I sent my standard reply of "We have plenty of gold here in Australia, MORE THAN YOU HAVE, thanks anyway" -- -and he sent this again a week later..]
TUES SEPT 16TH 3:06AM
As I stated before we have plenty of gold here in Australia. I buy mine in person. I do not need to have it shipped, and when I buy it I can see it, examine it, and hold it before I purchase it.
There is no reason for me to buy my gold from you, nor any reason for me to travel to Africa to buy it from you. Gold is gold, the same everywhere. Sorry.

FRI SEPT 19TH 6:13PM
Gday Mr Nana,
Nobody here in Australia would want to buy gold from Africa with all the shipping charges and dealing with unknown people.
We all buy it here where we can see it and touch it and buy it without flying to any foreign country.
Australia is a major producer of the world supply of gold and has been since the mid-1800s.
WED SEPT 24TH 1:05AM
Dear friend Sheila Bundee

FRI SEPT 26TH 9:14PM
You are a complete stranger to me. I see no real need to give out my number to a man I do not know. There are too many mouth-breathing pervos and convicts on parole out there in the world, I've had my share.
I am a single unmarried woman and I do not do things like this. I can't go for that, no can do..

[..*until we mate together*..I hope he really meant to say 'meet"....]
SUNDAY SEPT 28TH 4:16PM
Nice to hear from you again.
As I recall, you are in Ghana. You say that your father is a king, but I wasn't aware that Ghana is a Kingdom. So that confuses me a tad.
My parents are long dead, but I have a sister and 2 brothers. They are fine, thank you for asking. You say your dream is to marry a white woman, which I happen to be. But the colour of skin is a minor detail. What else do you desire in a marriage partner? You did not say. And please tell me your age, which might not seem important but always is to a woman.
[..whatever age he says, Sheila will be at least 10 years older..]
SUNDAY SEPT 28TH 8:39PM
Dear Friend Sheila
thanks very much my dear and may Great God bless you my dear
well am very happy once more my dear
well you have a point there my there by saying that Ghana is not a kingdom my there but i have to put you true so my there Ghana as a country half of Ghana is a kingdom which we call ashanty kingdom so my dear i came from shanty kingdom here in Ghana and my father is a king in shanty kingdom ok so my dear you can search about it or if you have any Ghana friend around you can ask from that friend about shanty kingdom here in Ghana so my dear am very sorry about the incident of your parent

[...my guess is either good weed or cheap wine...*REAL RESPECT* -- he will 'find out what it means to me'..-
These W. African lads always talk down to women, in virtually every romance I've had with them....]
MONDAY SEPT 29TH 12:33AM
And thank you for the nice email. So I guess your father really can say "it's good to be the king".. And since you are his son that makes you a real prince of a lad..
You said >>> i will protect my woman in every curse <<< And that confuses me somewhat, are you talking about voodoo curses? Or just plain cursing with all the vulgar words?
You really did not say what you like to do. For me, I enjoy fishing, cooking, shopping, going to pubs and the movies. I am way out here in the remote Australian Desert where there is no telephone coverage. We use short-wave radio communications over the air and my international call-sign is KXS-0383. Just get to the nearest short-wave radio and we can talk across the globe !
I would like to see your picture first, my privilege as a woman. You are age 35, that's nice. I am 47, older than you. I will try and get one of myself to send to you.Regards, Sheila

MONDAY SEPT 29TH 12:43PM
My Dear beloved Sheila Bundee
i am very happy with your mail my dear beloved and i thank you very much know i can see that this is God time do you know why iam saying is because whatever i love is also you as i can from here from you that you said you are on fishing i love fishing also my dear and am very happy with you just for having a lovely and good woman like you but you said you are 47 are you married before or you never married at all before my dear

thanks and God bless philip nana
[..Freudian slip -- *fiscal* for 'physical'....now we're at *my dear baby*..and the phone issue seems over..]
MONDAY SEPT 29TH 2:18PM
Well crikey you did say **curse**, so I can only go by what you say. But I am glad you did not mean voodoo curses. We had some Haitians here and you know how they can be with their chicken feathers, blood, and zombies..
As I said I am a single woman. I was married once many years ago, but it only lasted 6 months.
You were talking about your dear baby, so how many children do you have?
SEPT 30TH TUES 2:28AM
My Dear Sheila Bundee
how are you today my dear i hope you are doing great well i thank God for all so how is everything on your side i hope fine
so dear i have not married before for my life due to my dream which i told you that i dreamed to marry a white woman so just sake of that i never have love for a black woman and i have not born i don't have any child for now but i know in future i will have as many children i want with you and that is why am very happy for you and i like calling my woman my baby so that baby you sow is you am reffing to as my baby ok

thanks and God bless philip nana
[...** i will have as many children as i want with you**...doesn't Sheila have any say about that? ...and another one a half hour later..]
My Dear Sheila
i will like you to tell me about your gold just the way they use to sale the gold and your gold current price now in your country i know you are into gold so my dear just do this and update me ok
and there is one thing i will like to ask you and i will like you to just tell me the truth from your heart ok because i know our relationship between you and i need truthfulness and real love from one another ok just do that and get back to me ok so the question is do you like African from day one in your life please get back to me ok thanks i love you philip nana
TUES SEPT 30TH 11:28AM
I shall attempt to reply to both of your letters as one.
The current price of gold here is $1450 an ounce. Now I do not know how that compares to your prices, but for me that is fine. When I buy it occasionally I don't mind if the price varies by a few dollary-doos. Remember--I only buy it for myself, I do not sell it. I buy extra and send it to a cousin of mine far away.
I am a little uneasy about you calling me your baby because I am 12 years older than you and it sounds like I am your possession or a child of yours. Let us not forget that I AM a grown woman and your senior. But on the other hand, if you want to be sweet, go ahead. Like the manure spreader here on the ranch, a little here and there is good, but just not in excess.
And I have explained to you--there is no phone service here where I am, the outback Australian desert. And as I said, I can be reached at KXS-0383 on short-sideband radio.
I don't quite know what you mean about me having African. I can tell you that I know nothing about Africa except that it's across the Indian Ocean from Australia here.
All women want to see what the man looks like first. So until I see your picture first, you will have to wait to see mine.
Warm regards, Sheila
[..that is the closing price per ounce today Sept 30th on the Aussie Gold market in Aussie dollary-doos..]
TUES SEPT 30TH 1:09PM
My Dear sheila

yours philip nana
[..now I'm to be his *wife*...no matter how I try and break up his emails, it's still the ravings of a lunatic....]
WED OCT 1ST 2:23AM
Thank you for the nice email.
I have never really been in contact with anyone from Africa in the past, so it is quite nice to be hearing from you in Ghana. I am reading up on it more and more now, and the shanty kingdom you mentioned. I see that 22% of all women in Ghana are involved in polygamous marriages, which I'm sure should make Utah feel a whole lot better.
Food is always a favourite topic of mine, I love to cook things up! You did not say what you like to cook or what you like to eat. I am partial to grilled jackalope in emu gravy but that's just one of my specialties. Sweating over a hot stove all day making good food is heavenly to me!
My brother Tessio is coming over so I have to get things done for now.
[..I'll omit from him the fact I also read that a majority of Ghanaian wives are victims of spousal abuse at some point, and shockingly 2/3rds of them say they must have done something to deserve it...a jackalope is a seldom-seen western USA critter, half jackrabbit/ half antelope..]
WED OCT 1ST 4:35AM

WED OCT IST 4:45AM
Hello Dear Sheila
for me i like eating fish i don't eat meat am a vegetarian and like eating herb because herb is a nature and i also like eating rice and beans and yam here in Ghana my father have a big farm land where we planted all kinds of foods and so on so my dear am still remain nature i have not change and i never will change ok am still the way God the creator created me ok so dear just remain veture for me ok
you are going to be my empress and am going to be your emperor ok so dear let love lead thanks and God bless yours philip
[...no doubt he smokes the herb too, in fact he sounds very much like a Rastafarian in practice-- they did originate in Africa/ Ethiopia, honoring Emperor Hailie Selassie aka Ras Tafari....time now to shake things up with 'Operation Toto'...

WED OCT 1ST 2:26PM
SUBJECT: Your offer of gold
I have read your unsolicited email offer of gold.
I am a 29 year old single American woman now living here in Mexico with my aunt, uncle, and little dog too.
It is not really gold that I need, my overseas cousin sends me some. It is opals and turquoise that I desire and buy.
Thank you for your offer anyway..
[..Mexico is an ideal country to situate a bait...it has no diplomatic relations with any W. African country, so that puts the kibosh on any 'official diplomat delivery'....lads know absolutely nothing about the place...]
FROM PHIL TO DOROTHY
WED OCT 1ST 3:34PMY
SUBJECT: hello do you need gold to buy we sale gold ok
how are you today and your health so my dear i thank you very well for your mail so my dear i will like to know if you need gold to buy for i sale gold we sale and we do deliver the gold to you in your door step to you and you will receive it so dear kindly get back to me and update me more about what you need ok so i hope to here from you thanks and God bless philip nana
[..FISH ON THE LINE!..]
WED OCT 1ST 5:24PM
Hello again Mr Nana sir,
Thanks for the quick reply. Here in Mexico and many parts of the world the name NANA means grandmother.
No it is not gold I seek, it is turquoise and opals. And a husband, sigh..I am waiting for my aunt and uncle to pass on, in which case I will inherit $3million..
Sincerely, Dorothy Wizofoz
[..Too late I realize I should've left out the inheritance and gone another way, oh well it's done...but I did say I am looking to find a husband, and that should be noticed by him...the main thing now is to keep at least 2 hours between Dorothy and Sheila...it's too easy to blow it all with a wrong name or similar phrase...]
WED OCT 1ST 9:19PM
Hi dear Phil,
Once again I shall try and reply to both of your letters.
Of course you have my personal permission to visit me out here. We call Australia "The Lucky Country" because we are fortunate indeed to live in such a wealthy wonderful country.
What did you mean when you said >> so dear just remain veture for me <<<< ? Sometimes it is a little bit difficult to understand you.
Rice and beans sounds good, protein and flatulence combined. Your father must be quite a busy man with a farm, a gold mine company, and being the king. I smiled when you called me your empress, we have no such titles here. People are just people, no class distinction.
How far have you gone with your education? I am a graduate of the Sydney Harbour Institute of Technology, with several degrees in various fields.
My regards, Sheila
[ ..my old alma mater S.H.I.T...and I think he meant to say 'virtuous" or something like that...]
WED OCT 1ST 11:44PM

[..doing his best to push this gold on me...now a security company involved...I'll sit on this..]
THURS OCT 2ND 2:48AM
Hello Mister Nana,
I guess I sounded more sinister than I am. No I am not wishing my Auntie Emm and Uncle Henry to die. But they are both in their mid-70s, and at that age a person could slip on a banana peel and buy a 1-way ticket to Cloudville just like that. I would be donating most of the money to charity anyway.
I am in the parrot business, not the gold business. My cousins Jethro and Ellie Mae and I import parrots from down south, mostly Panama and Guatemala nearby. By the time the feathered cash machines reach us we have paid $300 per beak. We then sell them to wealthy Americans for $6000 each or more.
Nobody in Mexico bothers us about our bird business. But down here they have LA MORDIDA....It means THE BITE..Any shipment of gold here would be stolen and the gold person murdered or worse. Not only the Zapatista rebels, the Banditos, and the Nuevo Laredo Cartel get a piece of it, but the Policia Federales too. The motto of all these hijackers is "Oro o Plomo" It means if they do not get the gold from you, then you get the lead bullets from them.
Opals and parrots and turquoise oh my..these are the things I deal in, not gold.
Sincerely, Dorothy Wizofoz
[..I know this lad will try and win Doro over despite the fact that she's not interested.. I picture him as having the ego of someone who would never let a woman shrug him off, especially if she has money...]
THUR OCT 2ND 1:04PM
You mention coming here to Australia.. Do you have a travel visa to get here?Sheila
OCT 2ND THUR 2:21PM
Dear Sweet Heart Sheila
Thanks very much for your mail making my visa is not going to be much hard for me i know true your influence i believe i will get it very easy my dear

so dear i have ask them to contact you so they will contact you as i have told them ok so dear just comply with them in case they get to you ok dear am just doing this to come to you and see you ok because dear i have to tell you this sheila am in love with you so i have to come and see you because am thinking so much about you so therefore i have to come to you before i will fill fine ok so thank philip nana
[..I don't like being 'contacted' w/o having been asked first....if this security *manger* is Phil himself or someone else the basic writing style should tell....*just comply*---giving me orders is never good....]
OCT 2ND THURS 2:42PM
Nice to hear from you.
I am certain that you have never applied for an Australian visa before, so you can not say that it will be easy. They do not just give these visas away to any goombah that walks up and asks for one. And they do not issue them over-night either. It usually takes 5-8 weeks.
There is absolutely no sense in sending gold to me unless we both know that you can arrive here. I do not feel comfortable handling the wealth of others, just as I do not like strangers handling mine.
You were saying you owned a gold mine. Now you say the gold is with a security company and someone else will deliver it. I am so confused !!
THUR OCT 2ND 4:29PM
My Dear Sheila
Dear you dont have to worry about how am going to come to you i can make but is just only if you will be with me just for me to accept you as your guest in your country that is all for me

i never told you that i have a mining company rather i told you that my father is a king and he owns gold mining company which i work on with him that is what i said my dear and for the gold am telling you about i tell you that i have gold 50 kilos of gold is for me but is deposited in a security company by my father as my parts of inheritance from my father and he deposited it for me in-case if i married then i will make use of it with my family ok
so dear that is why am asking you to present yourself as my wife dear this is what i tell you my dear and you presenting yourself as my wife will make things go very smooth dear and after that they will know deliver the gold to you very aesy dear and i will like to tell you this you don't have to be afraid you only have to just stand by my side ok that all then i will do the rest here okso dear try and do this for me ok i believe if you do this you will help me am only making effort to come to your country and i believe that thing will work out if only you will be with me dear ok so fill free and ask me any question ok thanks and god bless philip nana
NEXT EMAIL 2 PHOTOS ATTACHED..a gangsta-thug in a dimly-lit kitchen, sunglasses, hair and eyes not visible.. Appears to be about age 25-27...he has a green knit wool cap on. In one he looks fake-pious reading a bible or koran..He's wearing a horizontal b&w striped shirt, which looks like what you see in old-time prison pictures, quite appropriate...these 2 pics are not 'selfies', they were taken by someone else not visible..

[..he should be a used-car salesman or carnival hustler...now I owe him a pic and he won't be disappointed..]
Hi dear Phil,
Thank you for your photo, you are quite a sharp dresser. And as I said I would do, here is my photo.. It's me recently with my pet gator 'Bitey'.. I'm thinking of giving him away to my friend Ned Kelly who owns a shoestore that also sells luggage, and Ned promises me he will take good care of Bitey...I just love critters!
Several things confuse me...You have indicated that this is something that you do not wish your father the king to know, but you have not really explained the reasons for this deception. This makes me uneasy.
Secondly, you are asking me to pretend to be your wife for some vague reason I cannot fathom. But that is water under a Brisbane bridge. If you know anything about women--and you are not one--you would know that no woman wants to be called a WIFE until that diamond ring is on the finger and the pastor 'now pronounces'....In plain English, I am NOT going to pretend to be married when in fact I am NOT married. I can not tell lies like that.
You said you *can not afford to wait any longer*...What is your hurry?
I do not wish to be responsible for the wealth of anyone, including your gold. Perhaps if you come here it can be transferred with my assistance. However that will ONLY happen when you apply for the Australian Travel Visa and send me the copy of it. THEN I will know you can come here. I presume that since you said you are a world traveler this should be no problem.Sincerely, Sheila

FRI OCT 3RD 2:54AM
Gday once more Phil,
Thank you again for the pictures.
I forgot to ask you what book you were reading. And also why did you hide your eyes?
They are the windows to the soul, and they say a lot about a person. I could not see your eyes with those sunglasses you were wearing.
