With a stolen credit card, Emmanuel purchased some items and had them overnighted to the address given by Joyce.  He purchased some chocolate as Joyce's Valentine's Day gift.  He also purchased a bunch of miscellaneous items (clothes, shoes, footballs, iPods, etc) for himself and his friends.   Click here to track that package...

For the record, the address where the items were sent is for a charitable organization.  The items will likely be given to needy children, or sold in their store.

Note from James:  This is the pic used by Isaac on his MySpace profile.

Joyce: No.  I'm his "mum"
Isaac: ohh ok

Isaac: where is he now
Isaac: mum
Joyce: He's in Ghana with his friend Julius
Isaac: mum
Isaac: u have it wong mum
Isaac: u seee that am a black boy

Isaac: i think u atre mistaking me for someone
Joyce: There's no mistake.  I searched your Yahoo ID
Joyce: http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=133829479
Isaac: am sorry
Joyce: I want to know how you got my ID
Isaac: what do u want me to say?
Isaac: tell me?
Joyce: the truth
Joyce: There's only two ways you could have gotten it
Joyce: Because I dont' give it out freely

Isaac: i dont know
Isaac: take it or leave it
Isaac: thats all

Joyce: Fine
Joyce: I'm leaving
Isaac: ok mum
Joyce: I'm not your mum anymore
Joyce: Consider yourself an orphan

We never chatted again.  It's possible, but not likely, that Isaac was not partnered with Emmanuel.  At one point during the chat, Julius gets out of his chair and leaves the area.  He comes back with a piece of paper and hands it to Isaac.  I snapped pics of the incident, but missed the handoff of the paper. 



I guess it's a possibility that Julius saw Emmanuel and Joyce chatting, and wrote down her Yahoo ID...  But I still think he's a buddy of Emmanuel.

The next day...

Emmanuel: hi
Joyce N.  : Hello

I never heard from any of these scammers again.  Maybe they gave up.  Maybe they got another stolen credit card.  Maybe a house fell on them.  That's been known to happen to witches from time to time.
