The story I am about to post, many of us have heard different variations of it. Cameroonians or even Africans who go abroad to later return home, only to find a "wife" or"husband". Hahaha...make I laugh small before I continue....Many of you at this point already know were I am heading to so just read the story below and ponder on it....Courtesy of Post News paper

P.s: It is long but you will get a kick out of it, I promise :-)
*Maga don pay=the mugu/mumu/fool has paid

One Eddy Ngassa, was, January 21, detained at the 12th Police District in Douala, for reportedly scamming a Cameroonian woman whose only name the police released as Catherine. Ngassa, who passed for a Black American, allegedly duped her purported fiancée, Catherine, a Douala-based hair dresser, of FCFA 4 million.

The story goes that Catherine, like many Cameroonian girls these days, had nursed the ambition of getting married to a wealthy white man with the hope of making quick money

Hence, in the course of one of these desperate Internet searches in 2009, she landed on Ngassa, who presented himself as a Black American.

He is said to have claimed he had learnt French during business trips to France. A "romantic" relationship is said to have rapidly developed between Ngassa and Catherine, with both exchanging pictures, with Ngassa sending but fake pictures of himself as being a Black American. He also reportedly promised to enable her "lover" realise her dream by bringing her over to the US and marrying her. Catherine is said to have broken the "good news" to her mother, who threw all her support behind the venture.

Meanwhile, the purported Black American fiancé set some conditions for Catherine to fulfil and then move over to join him in US. It is reported that Ngassa demanded that for Catherine to demonstrate her seriousness, she would be the one to raise the money to obtain her passport, visa and air ticket. Then, he would take over everything including her family's needs. He also reportedly advised Catherine to contact a young Cameroonian friend of his living at the Eleveur neighbourhood in Yaounde, who would help her to obtain the required documents and air ticket.Catherine is said to have contacted Ngassa's purported friend. Unknown to her, the Cameroonian was in fact, Ngassa, who told Catherine that FCFA 4 million would be required to obtain all the documents and the air ticket which, he said, had to be presented at the US Embassy for the visa.

Catherine is said to have sold out her hair-dressing equipment, withdrew all her savings and even borrowed some money but all could not make FCFA 4 million. Her mother and family members had to raise some money by selling property and borrowing to enable Catherine make up the amount. Catherine then handed the FCFA 4 million to Ngassa.

Ngassa Vanishes

A few weeks after Ngassa received the FCFA 4 million, he stopped contact with Catherine. The purported black American fiancé also stopped communicating with Catherine and his e-mail address also went out of function. It soon dawned on the young woman that she had been duped.Throughout the rest of 2009 and 2010, Catherine searched for Ngassa in Yaounde and Douala, in vain. Then, on January 21, 2011, she coincidentally met Ngassa at Banamoussadi in Douala. She gripped him and raised an alarm. Ngassa was taken to the 12th Police District where he swore that he had never met Catherine before. He was, however, detained as the police opened investigations. The Post learned that the police soon discovered that Ngassa was recently released from New Bell Prison where he is said to have spent a year for scamming another person.


Maga don finally pay, shout halleluia haha. This story is wrong on every level, but funny....If you have even crazier experiences, please do share :-)
