Calls himself Johnson Cole,says he is originally from Western Springs Florida (originally born in australia) and working as a missionary in a childrens orphanage in Accra, Ghana.
He wrote to my mother for months and totally scammed her. She donated $400 dollars because apparently his son 'Mike' had a bad accident and needed an operation to fix his leg or something. The Money was sent to
ADDRESS:CENTRAL HOSPITAL 201
She also sent a laptop to Johnson Cole's 'Pastor' in Ghana. That was as a donation to the orphanage. His name being
419 okurudu avenue
Johnson told my mother he would arrie in New Zealand 1st July. She got a phone call on friday night from his 'pastor' jonathon saying Johnson Cole had been caught by customs with over the legal limit of gold and it would cost $35,000 to bail him out.
We phoned the australian embassy and the police.
I talked to the pastor on the phone pretending to be my mother (he was very hard to understand)
He told me to go online, so i logged into msn and he was using 'johnsons' account (apparently he had
been caught by customs though) The dude rang over 47 times that night.
35,000 to be sent through western union too:
ADDRESS:312 LONGWOND AVE
As soon as mum got that phone call I googled his name and saw the 'johnson cole scam' (which is not the
same thing but it led me thinking). I also asked to see some of the emails he had sent. They came from
the IP address 126.96.36.199 which when I googled came up as malicious.
The phone number is 00233 firstname.lastname@example.org
