I'm new, I'm still bubble wrapped, vacuum packed and not a scratch on me. I did go to the new introductions thread but not much of a welcome there. I'm very impressed with the mission at hand, great work and reading some of the stories all of you have such great creativity, it leaves me in stitches reading it. There is no better use of one's time than to completely waste the time and resources of utter scum scammers. When you think of that elderly couple that lost their whole life savings to scammers it makes this all worthwhile and rather entertaining. I hope with time I'll become a one of the great master baiters like the rest of you! For now, I have a lot of reading to do and may have questions, stand by.

Totally unrelated to this but I am headed to Ghana, as well as Togo and Benin in a few weeks...just as a tourist, have hired a driver to see primarily Pendjari in No. Benin and any other trouble we can find coming and going to Accra. If there is anything I can do while there to support this cause, perhaps just a good photo op at the airport with someone baited to meet someone with a funny sign I'd be glad to, just let me know.

Again, great work from some really dedicated people.

Welcome to Eater! When you go to Ghana, tell us how are the entry controls in the airport and the frontier controls, if you cross any, that could be useful for giving excuses such as "They didn't let me in because I didn't have a booked hotel for the night" or for safaries. I wouldn't encourage to try to approach lads (if you are sure they are lads), they are criminals after all.

Perhaps a visit to a cybercafe to see what it looks like when lads are "at the office" could be useful.

Of course, remain cautious and use the Hannibal Lecter approach ("do not touch the glass, do not approach the glass") when in the presence of lads.

Tururut - I can definitely report border crossing issues upon my return. We will be traveling overland with a hired car w/driver from Ghana into Togo, then into Benin then back into Togo, then back into Ghana. So multiple border crossings. For airport issues, I'm a US citizen. I have to have a visa prior to arrival. Requirements are pretty much proving you can afford your stay (bank statement), proof of return air and visa fee, of course really the reason for the whole drill. One thing you also need on arrival is a yellow fever certificate. So good excuses for airport delays would be there was a problem with my visa and/or I didn't have a yellow fever shot.

For driving overland I have found in my research there's alot of check points in Ghana and surrounding countries, internally, not just borders and officials are very corrupt. You can get a good shakedown for as much cash as they can extract from you. One reason we went with a driver vs. driving ourselves though that may or may not help. We will be traveling as poor Americans in tattered clothing carrying paper bags Smile Wish us luck! We did do Ethiopia last year, same routine with driver so if anyone needs any Ethiopia advice I can provide. Also Tunisia, though that was self drive and one wacky fun trip that almost ended inadvertently in Algeria.

MoutonBlanc, a definite stop with camera at the ready. No we don't approach any lads just good photo ops. We will also be in areas I sure don't think lads operate but you never know. We aren't spending much time in Accra, fly in and fly out basically.

Hi and welcome to Eater, Shiesekopf. Sure hope you enjoy your safari through Togo, Benin and Ghana. Don't forget to take a lot of sensible precautions while travelling through that part of the world. I know what it's like after living in South Africa for nearly four years. A lot more civilized than some other African states but still can be a trap for the unwary.

Just a gentle suggestion if I may. If you do go into a cybercafe, please don't go waving a camera around. Be as discreet as you can if you want to take pics. Some, if not all the lads in the cafe may not want their photo taken even for innocent reasons e.g. being a tourist and want to take it out on your person.

Dbest - Thanks for the input. We're pretty discreet and respectful with the camera, almost everywhere its very bad form to just snap photos without asking permission first and some places taking photos of the wrong thing can land you in jail. But at times its easiest to just snap a quick one pretending to take a pic of your mate who discreetly steps out of the photo. As I mentioned we'll be in areas I don't think these lads really operate, which is mainly the larger populated areas Accra, Lome, Lagos. We'll be in some very rural areas for the most part visiting some of the tribal cultures and Pendjari though we'll be passing thru towns which will have internet cafes and of course possible lads operating in those. We're fairly travel savvy as we travel independently so we have to do all our own homework on the front end. Our biggest concerns are really the corrupt police, petty theft and staying healthy. Safety of course too, we've always found seeking local advice before venturing to certain areas or taking a certain route is always best as we travel thru. We've gotten our visas (multiple entry) for all 3. I'm just so shocked that people get scammed told they don't need one. That's the first thing I check and directly with the country's embassy. Thanks again and travel safe.

You seem like a seasoned and professional traveler. I know someone who did a similar journey and came back ok. Pitfalls can be found anywhere (even in western countries) as long as you take common sense approach as you would anywhere, your journey should risk free. Have fun
