I want you to do me a favor
Another thing that is very popular with scammers is that they will want to send you items like clothes, shoes, cell phones, lap top computers and many other items. They will then want you to repackage them and ship the items to them so they can resell them. Don't do it. The items are always purchased with stolen credit card information.

The laptops were paid for with a Visa credit card. He said the company he bought them from would not send them to Ghana....I asked why and he said he didn't know but needs me to put them in new boxes and ship them to him.
They work fast then hit you before you can think about what you are doing
By purchasing products online then having them shipped to you so you can reship them to the scammer, most likely the products will already be on their way or in the scammer's possession before the credit card comes back as stolen. That just leaves you to pay for the items or risk the chance of being prosecuted for receiving stolen merchandise.
The reason they want you to repackage the items is because they won't have to pay the tax for new items.

Try not to get so wrapped up in a picture of someone that you ignore inconsistencies, flags and warning signs
