Ghana Fraud Part 2: I Contact Nancy to Expose African Internet Scam of Lonely Friend

In my last post, Ghana Fraud: Man Victimized by African-Based Lonely Hearts Computer Scam Spends Tens of Thousands, I wrote of how my friend, Ronnie Robinson [not his real name], had been scammed out of some $50,000 over several years from scammers in Ghana.

This is Part 2.

Ronnie has been the victim of this lonely hearts-style fraud for years. He spent money he could barely afford to spend and in time went into debt.  It is my opinion the money went to a group of men in Africa posing as a woman in love with him, named Nancy.

They used pictures and video of a white woman who supposedly is Nancy.


I had to intervene last week. It was my second intervention.

But before I did last week’s intervention, I intervened a few years ago. I wrote about this in a previous article in the Niagara Falls Reporter. However, in order to get the backstory, I am republishing much of the material, since most readers did not read the originals. Then, in Part 3, I will add the new material that occurred since these stories.

This scam is real and continues to this day around the world.

Here is what happened:

I found out from Ronnie that he had given thousands to a woman in Ghana.  I told Ronnie that this was a scam, but he did not want to believe me. He insisted Nancy was real and that she loved him. Ronnie was 72 at the time.

By the time of my first intervention, Ronnie had spent more than $6,300. Now he needed more money to send. He asked me to lend him money so he could get his true love from Ghana to the USA.

In fairness to Ronnie, he had been alone for years. All his friends wanted to see him find a nice woman, but all of them knew it was not Nancy.

All Ronnie needed, he said, was just an additional $1,200 for “pocket money” for Nancy. He had bought her ticket and paid for the other expenses to bring her to the USA, [totaling some $5,500.]

He thought she was coming on the next plane. But Nancy texted him that immigration authorities required her to have $1,200 in cash in order to leave Ghana. Ronnie did not have $1,200. So he asked me to lend it to him. He was desperate.

This is when I intervened.

I learned that Ronnie had never actually spoken with Nancy. The sum total of their relationship was him texting someone who texted back, who said her name was Nancy. He spent hours texting back and forth.

He had some Skype chats with her, but the audio never worked. The  Skype chats featured Ronnie live and on which his voice could be heard. On the other end in Ghana was a silent Nancy. She would also text while she was seen on Skype.

I told Ronnie that it was likely a video that the scammers showed him.

I asked and Ronnie gave me Nancy’s number. I texted her, telling her I was Ronnie’s uncle, and that Ronnie would not be able to send her the $1,200.

Nancy texted back, calling me “uncle,” saying “my heart cries for Ronald always” and if Robinson did not soon send the money, she would be evicted and, once she was out on the street, “wicked Ghanan men will rape me and kill me.”

I texted the scammer to see if I could “steal her away” and show Ronnie that this was just a scam.

I wrote: Too bad we did not meet first for I would send you the money to bring you here and meet me, but you love Ronald too much.

Nancy: Can you tell me your name?

I wrote: Winston Groovy.

Nancy: Winston, as you tell me that Ronald says he will not bring me there, so when you bring me there, I will come and stay with you.

Groovy: But you love Ronald so much. I want a woman of my own to love only me.

Nancy: But Ronald has disappointed me so how can I give him my heart again so try to care about me and I will leave here and be with you.

A picture of the woman who is supposedly Nancy, who Ronnie fell in love with.

Nancy then asked if I would do a video call, via Skype.

A Skype account was created under the name Winston R. Groovy. Within seconds, a video call was in progress.

When I accepted the call, a grainy video of “Nancy” appeared.

Nancy appeared to be live on Skype but there was no sound.

She smiled and appeared to be typing on the keyboard.

Lana Brooke (284967260) | Mixes on Myspace

I greeted Nancy, but there was no sound on her end.

As Winston Groovy, I asked her to enable her audio, so I could hear her.

Nancy, in the video, smiled, and appearing responsive to the question, was typing.

Then I got a text from Nancy: My internet is very bad here. Because my internet bills has due. You are such a nice man. I am sorry i don’t have microphone. My internet is very bad here.

Groovy: You are too beautiful.

Nancy: And you are also nice man. Can you tell me something about you?

Groovy: I sold my hotel and my restaurant, and now have retired and looking to meet a nice lady to be with 4 ever. How about you?

At this point, the grainy video disconnected and we were left to text.

Nancy: I was born in South Africa in a city called Cape Town but due to some problems i am now in Ghana. I was living with my parents. And we was having a relative in Ghana and she was my Grandma and my parents said that we should come and pay her a visit. And we arrived in Ghana safely and my parents said that they are going to the Royal Mart to buy some items and unfortunately they get a fatal accident and they died. So because of that I was not able to return to South Africa and I was living with my Old Grandma and my dear I also lost my Old Grandma through a disease. And i use to sell some ice water at the roadside and also at the market but the fridge which i use to sell the ice water destroy so i have stop selling it and i am at home always.

This is who he thought he was texting. Groovy: That’s so sad. You need to have a change of life, you poor, dear, adorable woman. Such bad luck for one so beautiful.

Nancy: Oh my dear. Life is unfair to me

Groovy: Maybe it will get better real soon

Nancy: Really? Tell me more about you.

Groovy: My parents were living in Buffalo, and they had an unfortunate fatal accident. But they left me a considerable fortune, as my dad was a lawyer connected with the embassy in Japan. With my money that I inherited, I moved to Walla Walla, Washington. Now I live alone, my wife died four years ago, and I am so lonely and no one to share my money with.

Nancy again appeared on Skype. It seemed to be the same grainy video. She appeared to be texting. Sometimes smiling, sometimes looking off to the left. Sometimes a few strands of her bangs would fall over her right eye.

Nancy texted: i am sorry about your wife issue. And is part of life.

Groovy: Do u like me?

Nancy: Yes. Do you also like me?

Groovy: I like u very much sweet woman.

I decided to test whoever was texting me and showing me the images so I wrote: will u pull your hair up for me now so i can see what it looks like?

The video of Nancy disconnected.

I [as Winston Groovy] continued on video.

Groovy: Nancy I got to go to a meeting. I got to count my money before I go.

I pulled out a wad of cash and counted it on camera. I wanted to show the scammers I had money.

Nancy texted: But will you also do me a favor?

Groovy: What?

Nancy: My dear, I want you to send me small money through Money-gram so that I can use it to buy foodstuffs. And I will be very happy about it.

Groovy: How much do you need?

Nancy: My dear how much can you send me from your own heart so that I will use it to buy some foodstuffs and I will thank you and appreciate it.

Groovy: How about I come to meet you in Africa? I can leave on a flight tomorrow. I will buy you food and anything you need.

Nancy: Ok but I have to pay my rent fees because my time has due and the best is for me to be with you in USA because I don’t like Ghana.

Groovy: And what will you do when you come to me?

Nancy: I promise that I will do anything you want me to do. And love you always. We have travel agency here to help peoples and can help me to be with you safely without any problems.

Groovy: Oh joy. How soon can you come and how much do you need and will you be with me 4 ever my darling?

Nancy: As for me I don’t know the exact amount but I can get the agent information for you so that you can contact him and talk to him so that you will know everything about it. As for now send me the amount for some foodstuffs so that I will know that you care about me. Try to go to Moneygram after the meeting….

The topic of money came up very quickly, and the scammer did not hesitate to ask for cash by Money-gram. This was the same method of payment used in Ronald Robinson’s case.

A quick Google search of the terms “Nancy in Ghana,” and “Nancy Scam in Ghana” revealed many photos of Nancy, and hundreds of reports of victims being scammed. According to these reports, the name and images of Nancy have been used since 2008, with over 700 people making claims they were victims of the “Nancy” scam.

In poverty-stricken Ghana, men work in organized groups to persuade lonely old men online to send them money under the pretext of being beautiful young women who wish to leave Ghana and marry them

The photos and videos (which purport to be Nancy texting live on Skype) are actually those of internet porn performer “Lana Brooke” who is said to be a favorite among scam artists because she looks “All American” and “Corn Fed”.

Brooke herself has spoken out on the issue, according to reports, claiming her photos were stolen and used for the purpose of defrauding people on the internet.


According to, the scam originates from a group referred to as “Gang Scammers,” “Yahoo Boys,” and “Sakawa.” The practice of Sakawa originates from Ghana and combines modern internet-based fraud practices with traditional religious rituals. Some of the internet scammers use ‘magic’ rings when they type on keyboards, and bring the menstrual blood of their girlfriends so they can become successful internet fraudsters.

The scammers are encouraged by some in their community because it generates revenue in a village riddled with poverty. The scammers are living lavish lifestyles. Some of the elders, however, are concerned, saying it will be the downfall of their community.

The government of Ghana officially condemns the scammers but it is clear that it is becoming difficult for the government and Muslim clerics, chiefs and elders of the Zongo’s to control the ‘sakawa’ or internet fraud now prevalent in the ‘zongos’ or Muslim communities in Ghana.

The videos are typically prerecorded, such as the case with Lana Brooke, aka Nancy, in which the scammer uses the same 2 or 3 minute video in a loop, playing it over and over again making it seem that you are actually engaging in a video call.

Later in the day, Nancy again started texting me.

Nancy: Where are u? I wish I am there with u now. So try and care about me and i will leave Ghana here. When you bring me there I will come and stay with you.

Groovy: Tell me what u need my lovely.

Nancy: As for now send me the amount for some foodstuffs so that i will know that you care about me. send Moneygram to Luvas Wiafe, Kumasi, Ghana. She is a certain sister who live in our house and she is my friend and she work at the bank.

A few hours passed then Nancy again texted.

Nancy: But you did not send me.

Groovy: Did u not get the money?

Nancy: You have not give me any information about the money you send me. Answer me.

Groovy: Yes I sent it to you

Nancy: Send me the receipt now.

Groovy: (using the name of the internet porn performer, whose image they were using to pretend to be Nancy) I paid it to Lana Brooke, $2000

Nancy: (Not catching on) Where is the ref numbers? Answer me.

Groovy: I don’t think you understand. I am aware of you cheating lonely, old men…

The texting ceased and I did not hear any more from Nancy.

However, she soon afterward started texting Ronnie again…

Ronnie always received nice girl pictures of Nancy.

I found these porn pictures of Lana Brooke, who was clearly the same woman he believed was Nancy.

I showed them to Ronnie.

I asked him “how come your nice girl posed like this?”

He said, “they must have forced her to do this.”


Despite my showing Ronnie the websites [see below] that reveal that Nancy is not in Ghana but is actually a woman who calls herself Lana Brooke, a porn model in Canada, Ronnie chose not to believe me.

Lana Brooke: Have You Seen Her? Another Stolen Face / Stolen Identity

As you will see in Part 3, Ronnie continued to send money [tens of thousands] to Ghana.

Somehow, no matter how much he sent, there was always some complication that prevented Nancy from arriving in the USA. She always needed a little more to get there.

One of the saddest notes of this affair is that Nancy told Ronnie that his uncle [me, as Winston Groovy] tried to steal her away from him, the only man she truly loves.

For a moment, Ronnie was deeply hurt to think I was trying to woo Nancy from him. I tried to explain that I certainly was not trying to steal Nancy from him because there is no Nancy.

That Nancy probably looks like this:

And not this:

He finally said he believed me after I showed him the internet porn pictures. And I extracted a promise from him that he would not send any more money to Ghana without contacting me first.

His desire for this imaginary woman, whom he had spent years texting, was too much for him, however. He would spend so many lonely nights texting Nancy. And he began to do it again.

And he continued to send money.

This time, to increase the money they would get, the scammers sold Ronnie a brand, new story.

Nancy had an attorney to help her and this attorney informed Ronnie that Nancy had inherited a million dollars in gold which would be Ronnie’s since he was going to marry her.

Ronnie and the attorney, a man named Frank, would often speak on the phone [But Nancy was never available by phone somehow.]

As we shall see, Ronnie was told he would get the gold as soon as he paid for the tax on importing the gold in the USA. Nancy would bring it with her so that Ronnie would not only get the girl but would be wealthy too.

Stay tuned for Part 3.

        Have a super duper weekend and may God bless you and your family!!!!!!!!


        I am now self-censoring in accordance with Frank Parlato’s wishes.

  • The scammers are using this porn star’s image to make bank, how is FR any different?

    The nudie pics are entirely unnecessary — not what the scammers sent you and a further violation of “Nancy.”

    Did you or your friend pay for those?

    • Heidi – Lana’s pictures are all over the internet – many which are far more graphic. She is a porn model. I used the pic to illustrate the important concept that she is clearly not an innocent victim in Ghana trying to leave the country.

        • Frank didn’t realize it and when I elaborated he pulled it down.


          Correct me if I am wrong, you use reading glasses and did not have them on….


          Frank never posted [ FULLY] nudes before..

          Like NutJob says “Frank keeps them for himself.

        • The female vagina is a lovely piece of nature that demonstrates female empowerment to the viewers.

          You should not be ashamed to see a female vagina photo. You should embrace it as a symbol of female empowerment.

          Most females can use their vagina to wield tremendous power over men. It is most empowering in that respect.

          Also, porn photos (showing coitus) are simply a representation of ‘nature’ playing out as intended —– so that our species can survive.

          Porn is simply humans being human. It’s as natural as eating a fresh apple or bird watching.

          I don’t think Frank should have taken down that snatch photo.

          I think Frank is being sexist —- to make his viewers think that they need to be ashamed of viewing the female vagina.

          Have a nice day.

          • Bangkok, I agree! The vagina rules the world, and we are too hung up on nudity in this country–yet glorify violence. And female sexuality and empowerment is beautiful.

            Porn is another story. Most of it is crap. Cheap crap.. it resembles the act of reproduction, which we are all on earth to do, but is unreal and does not signify the private sex lives of real people.

            Key word: most

      • She’s not a porn model. It appears she poses naked, and she’s stunning, but I can’t find porn. Nude doesn’t equal porn.

        • Fool me Not is correct. For research and to be a more informed commentor, I did the same. After hours of searching, nude pictures is all I found. And I may have found a future photographer to hire if I’m ever in Georgia.

    • Hi Heidi- “Me thinks the lady doth protest” cuz of Lana’s youthful beauty, waxed taint, and well pedicured feet. Mmh?
      How your hoofs holding up?
      I bid you good day. 🙂

      • Oh, you know, that sprain I got when I stumbled while trying to video that pimp and pony show at the TO bus terminal last July 1 is still bothering me. A little. Other than that the hooves are still trotting. …Why, was Roger asking?

        BTW, please let Pat know that they were surreptitiously filming the wrong foot at his house the night Frank rescued me from my next potential criminal caper at the Mission Bell Motel. It was the left one that was still swollen, not the right one they angled on for so long. Had my legs crossed.

  • “I learned that Ronnie had never actually spoken with Nancy.”
    Sorry but lol…seriously.
    He gave, without talking ONCE to this “true love” 5000+ dollars.

    I repeat what i said before but : as long as they’ll be idiot like this, these scams will exist.

    “He had some Skype chats with her, but the audio never worked.”
    Always a bad sign…but at the same time…skype.

    “My internet is very bad here. Because my internet bills has due. You are such a nice man. I am sorry i don’t have microphone. My internet is very bad here.”
    Lol, bad for audio but good enough for video feedback…make sense.
    They don’t even try that hard.

    “I want you to send me small money through Money-gram”
    A variation, usually they like to use western union…

    “Some of the internet scammers use ‘magic’ rings when they type on keyboards”
    You sure love to use shady sources…
    They don’t use “magic” rings , they are usually 1 guys who is just using the lack of common senses of some ‘what’s is in your pant’ guided kind of idiot.
    Their is nothing religious or anything.just classic scammers who take advantage of weakness.

    BTW, this is from Ghana but can also come from Senegal or Russia…Usually, the african scammers love the melo drama side ” i lost my all family when a satellite felt on their house…”

    Always absurdly big stories but as they say, the bigger the story, the more believable…

    “Despite my showing Ronnie the websites [see below] that reveal that Nancy is not in Ghana but is actually a woman who calls herself Lana Brooke, a porn model in Canada, Ronnie chose not to believe me.”
    Now convince me that he isn’t an idiot…
    I mean even when proof are in his face, he is like “it’s not her”

    BTW, you like that kind of scam, it’s not exclusive to Africa…
    It also happens (more often than due) in USA.
    Ever seen the show “catfish”?

    “His desire for this imaginary woman, whom he had spent years texting, was too much for him, however. He would spend so many lonely nights texting Nancy. And he began to do it again.

    And he continued to send money”
    Maybe it’s his happiness…leaving in a fantasy and paying for it.
    I know people around here (on FR) who do that all the time…

    “Ronnie and the attorney, a man named Frank, would often speak on the phone [But Nancy was never available by phone somehow.]”
    Atleast he finally talked to “nancy”…

  • In Part 1 I mentioned an acquaintance who lost his bank account and car to this scam.
    What I did not mention is that what impressed this moron was that his “internet girlfriend” emailed him a topless picture of herself.
    He showed me the topless picture and this moron was still Ga Ga over the picture even though he had been scammed.
    This cretin had the mentality of a retarded 13 year old boy.
    He did not understand that he can go on the internet and find only a billion pictures of nude or topless women for nothing.

    On top of that this imbecile had another “internet girl friend who fed him a line of BS that she wanted to visit him in Chicago but she needed the plane fare.
    So he wired her the money.
    Well wouldn’t you know it but this woman had a car accident on the way to the airport and was in the hospital.
    Of course this acquaintance had to wire this “internet girl friend” money for the hospital bills.

    The only cure for this idiot would be to castrate him.


  • Attention Everyone!!!!!!

    RE Organization for Investigation SCARS:

    Scars has more trade marked organizations under its umbrella the Keith Raniere and NXIVM.

    Please take a gander at the SCARS network…

    Scammer Grammar™, Act Against Scams™, Say No To Scams™, Boyati Miskun Foundation™, SCARS™, Society of Citizens Against Romance Scams™, Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams™, SCARS™, RSN™, Romance Scams Now™, SCARS|CDN™, SCARS Cybercrime Data Network™, SCARS|China™, SCARS|UK™, SCARS|Worldwide™, SCARS|Global™, SCARS|GOFCH™, in any form, are all trademarks of the Society of Citizens Against Relationship Scams Incorporated.

    Does anything smell fishy or look like funny?

    • Frank,

      If you go look up the various trademarks, copyrights and incorporations involving SCARS…it looks like on the surface there is some obvious duplicity and Tom-Fuckery going on.

      McGuinness on the one hand started SCARS. Good stuff right? On the other hand…

      McGuinness’s website mentions…
      “Applied Social Engineering done ethically”, that statement isn’t oxymoronic whatsoever.

      “Master Content Conversion psychology”? …Sounds benevolent and well-intended to me.

      And lastly, my favorite is RSN™ or Renal Support Network.

      The best kind of crimes and scams are the ones done openly because nobody suspects a thing.

  • Speaking of other scams, after all that has been publicly said about the risk that asymptomatic patients pose to the spread of covid-19, this WHO news release came out recently.

    WHO clarifies ‘misunderstanding’ about transmission of covid-19 by asymptomatic patients

    Maria Van Kerkhove, WHO epidemiologist, rectified what was said on June 8, 2020, that the transmission of asymptomatic patients with covid-19 to other individuals is “very rare”. Photo: Twitter @mvankerkhove

  • What a coincidence, the name of the alleged woman who cheats your friend is Nancy, just like a certain cult leader and the photo belongs to a Canadian porn actress named Lana as the character of a certain Canadian actress who was used as a poster girl by the aforementioned cult. It seems destiny that you run into this for a long time.

  • Winston Groovy. Winston R. Groovy.

    Well, hang ’em high, Mr. Parlato. And here I thought that Winston only lit up après le sexe.

    This reminds me of Mr. I.P. Daley and of the old rubber man, Justin Case, not to forget our redhaired, and comical pediatrician, Dr. Dick Clapp, who could not resist and named one of his sons Peter.

    Best to shut up now before going into too much detail about Drs. Repaire, Butcher and Peache.

  • Re Lana Brooke the Woman

    All men, including myself, when they see an attractive woman, initially objectify her at first blush. Every heterosexual man does it. When I saw Lana for the first time, I thought “she’s bangable”. It’s only after a minute or two do I think this woman has had a hard life and received a shitty hand of cards. She is someone’s daughter. At one time, she, of course, was a little girl with dreams and aspirations. Becoming a sex worker one day was not one her dreams or aspirations.

    Frank, interviewing Lana Brooke would make one hell of an interview. Her backstory before becoming an adult model, I am sure is riveting and touching.

    If the photos were of scantily clad women and not a sex worker, I would feel totally different about the images.

  • I’ve learned something. There’s a fine line between “helping” a friend, and gaslighting a friend in order to steal his hot internet pornstar gf. Sometimes, the lines even cross…

  • Frank is a LOUSY friend, in my humble opinion.


    Cuz he didn’t take strenuous enough measures to stop this fraud, once and for all.

    FACT: Frank KNEW that Ronnie was ADDICTED to this scammer’s photos.

    FACT: Frank KNEW that Ronnie has a lower than normal IQ and is borderline retarded.

    *I estimate that Ronnie’s IQ is somewhere between 67 and 72, which puts him right on the ‘border’ of mental retardation.

    This deadly combination (of ‘addiction’ plus ‘mental retardation’) makes it impossible for Ronnie to stop sending money to Ghana — UNLESS Frank reported this international scam to his local FBI office.

    The FBI could not have arrested anybody of course, but they COULD HAVE TALKED TO RONNIE and woken him up.

    Having an FBI agent speak to Ronnie would immediately wake him up to the truth.

    But Frank was too egotistical to let an outside agency help his friend.

    Instead, Frank wanted to take credit for bringing down these scammers himself (just like he brought down NXIVM).

    Frank let his HUGE EGO take over —– by attempting to bring down these scammers himself.

    That’s why Frank insisted on chatting with these scammers himself while posing as Winston Groovy —– to show them how smart he was by eventually ‘outing’ them in an online chat.

    It made Frank feel very ‘clever’ to outsmart Nancy via online chat.

    Frank soothed his huge ego by doing this, but sadly, he didn’t help his friend at all.

    Frank could have let Ronnie be present during these conversations with Winston Groovy — so that Ronnie could see first hand that it was a scam when Nancy was disrespecting him behind his back — but Frank chose NOT TO DO THAT because he didn’t wanna risk looking like a failure if Nancy didn’t take the bait.

    Again, that’s pure EGO on Frank’s part.

    Poor Ronnie was left ‘mentally’ molested after Frank’s escapades were over —– and he continued sending money to these scammers.

    Frank also could have consulted with mental health officials to let them know about this situation involving a 75 year old friend who was being scammed —— so they could have intervened and counseled Ronnie.

    But Frank’s huge ego led him to believe that only he can expose scammers.

    In Frank’s mind, only he can stand up to scammers. Nobody else.

    Frank is not a good friend.

    With friends like Frank, who needs enemies?

    Have a nice day. 🙂

    • Frank is a very detached individual. LOL

      Otherwise, he would have put much more effort into helping millions not get scammed by Amway and other MLM scams rather than focus on a handful of whores, drug addicts and dealers, and an old, poor man getting ripped off by an obvious African scam artist. LOL

    • Yes, thanks for pointing that out. I have written Part 1 and Part 2 based on the original stories written in the Niagara Falls Reporter. Most readers of Frank Report do not read the Reporter so it is fitting to republish them. This is a scam that needs to be widely known.
      My stories have been continuously online and have ranked pretty high in search engines. I hope it has dissuaded some people from wasting the money on these scams.
      Part 3 will be an update on what has happened since I wrote the original stories.

    • Thank you soooooo much, Flowers. You might have just saved me, Ronnie, and Ronnie’s mom from dipping our toes – errrrrrr belly-flopping – into Scientology.

    • Lana Brooke technically could sue Scientology for using her photos and not paying her.

      Anyone know Lana?

      • When we finally need him, where the hell is Johnson with a taunting invite to call into his radio show?

          • Sorry. I wasn’t clear. I want him to invite the lovely Lana Brooke on his world famous radio extravaganza. If Textex can pull that off, I’ll promise to listen. And I’m pretty sure we can count on Ronnie and his mom also listening. Think of the future advertising money, Scoot!

      • Most people would be cautious about trying to sue Scientology. They have more money than most people do, and apparently have quite a number of corrupt lawyers working for them. ….or so I’ve heard.

  • ….On the flip side:

    Thanks to Parlato and Brooke, Bangkok has beat-off material that will last him [only] a week or two. Bangkok, after all, is a fickle young-whippersnapper.

    Anyone remember Bang’s infamous crushes on Lauren Salzman and Ramtha?

    Lauren Salzman….Bangkok found out she was 5ft tall and dropped her like a hot potato. Fickle Bangkok

    Ramtha….Fickle Bangkok move on when he found out the 15,000 year old spirit wasn’t real.

    How does a young man pleasure himself to a 15,000 year old spirt that inhabits a 65 year old woman’s body?

    God only knows.

    • SCARS Team,

      Ever watch an episode of 90 Day Fiancé?

      One poor sap gets sold a bill of goods every other episode, shelling out thousands of dollars for a beautiful woman who does not exist. Ever see the episode with
      Mitch Garrity?

      Where are you guys when those poor saps are being suckered? Seriously?

      Every charity on planet earth exists…..Or so I thought……

      …..Congratulations SCARS Team you have created a charity with untapped potential and money making opportunities. Plus you all now have jobs!!!!

      Fuck kids with cancer!!!!

      Fuck starving Children in Africa!!!!!

      Fuck homeless Dogs!!!!

      Fuck rape victims!!!!

      Let’s help white men shelling thousands of dollars for pussy that does not exist?

      Sound like a worthy cause to me!!!!

      BTW Scars, I have donated money to MAD and various charities for tax write-offs.

      I never created a charity to make money!!!

      Kudos SCARS on being self righteous sanctimonious tool bags. Go do some yoga, drink a Latte, and keep eating your own bullshit!!!!

      • Nice Guy has a point. Charities like this one is a scam in itself. Write-offs and backdoor handshakes to only fund expensive dinners for the charity workers on their payroll earning them more land for their local government and families, that should have rightfully gone to its original purpose.
        I don’t feel sorry for the rascal Ronnie, Nancy, or a babbling porno star with Ghanareea. I really don’t agree either that Floyd’s killer be held in jail for doing what he was trained to do.
        Floyd should have sheltered at home and Ronnie should have listened to his friend.

        • Peaches,

          Many of those charity events and parties barely raise any money after taxes are subtracted and sometimes only break even.

          The event or party attendees can get a percentage of the cost deducted from their taxes.

          It’s outrageous and totally legal.

          I learned this information from someone who use to work for the accounting firm Cooper and Lybrand.

          The caterers who stage the parties and events clean up and make a fortune along with the large hotels.

  • …Another part to this story is the
    “adult model”. There is no real money in being an adult model. Miss Brooke is more than likely a sex worker of some kind. The
    many photos of herself are used as a kind of advertisement. Average pornstars make less than a $1000 a video/movie. The videos serve to advertise their wares.

    Lana, like most female pornstars and sex workers was probably had a hellish childhood of some sort and was molested as child.

    • Porn stars don’t make much, that’s true.

      $1,000 per scene (vaginal sex with 1 guy)

      $1,500 per anal scene (1 guy fucking her in the butt)

      $2,000 for a gangbang scene with 6 guys stuffing every hole simultaneously

      $3,000 for a golden shower/bukkake scene with a room full of guys

      *Golden shower is where guys urinate on the gal
      *Bukkake is where you cum on a gal’s face, usually jacking it yourself

      A golden shower/bukkake scene is where guys do both

      In the USA, ‘brown rain’ (shitting on a gal) is not legal in the porn industry.

      But giving your partner a “Cleveland Steamer” during off-camera sex (shitting on her chest) may possibly be legal, however, since I’m not an attorney, I can’t say for sure.


      You can certainly piss on a gal —— thus, your Sicilian whore (wife) would be right at home moonlighting for extra cash doing golden shower scenes.

      I can already tell from the way you obey her (let her monitor your Internet time) that she’s a dirty whore who’s no stranger to taking cumshots on her face.

      If you ask her to take a polygraph test (to verify she’s never cheated on you) —— I promise that she’ll refuse to take such a test.

      Truth is, women don’t respect men who make less money than them. Nor do they respect passive men who ‘obey’ their wives and who must get permission from their wives just to post on Internet forums.

      She may pretend to respect you, but deep-down-inside, she’s fantasizing about a REAL man who’s not acting like her ‘bitch’.

      If you go thru years of marriage acting like a ‘doormat’ (bitch) then you’re only hastening the time in which your wife will lose respect for you — and eventually ask for a divorce.

      Have a nice day. 🙂

      • Bangkok you dummy.

        Who supplied you with the official price list…

        …..The United Association of Whoring? You dumb f*ck, each contract is negotiated.

        It’s not like there is some standard official scale for porn stars. They don’t have a real union to negotiate for them.

        Thanks for explaining to me the definition of Bukkake, news flash asshole it’s not 1985. Everyone knows what Bukkake is. Even my f*cking Grandma knows what Bukkake is.

        WTF planet are you on?

        Did you just gain internet access for the very first time this week?
        So you can f*cking Google? Aren’t you special.

        Bangkok your head is so far up your ass you can suck your own cock in reverse.

        PS I don’t care what my wife respects as long as I have nice shit.

        Have a nice night you little dipsh*t. 😉

      • To: 12:27 pm
        Bangkok, you’re quite an expert. Where did you get this? Are you a porn producer and know how much you pay for what and know the market prices? Why are you at Frank Report and not on different porn sites to increase your expertise?

    • Shame, niceguy! Your words can hurt! Miss Lana is NOT “average”. Rather than this blatant lie, I was expecting you to give Frank a thank you for delivering some non-fake skin.

  • Frank, did you really send that porno star 2,000 dollars?
    Why does Ronie let you “steal” his girlfriend’s?
    Even though Ronie is spending all his lunch money on black men, don’t you think he should in the name of love?
    As it stands now, you have stolen all his girlfriends and now all his African boyfriends. It’s just not fair.

      • Frank,

        I enjoy reading Claviger’s, O’Hara’s and your articles.

        I just want to mention that if you “click” on “just” one particular photo above you can see Lana’s whole enchilada ie the hairless Chihuahua.

        I don’t know if it was your intention to showcase the vag……

        If it is your intention, then I don’t give a rats ass because it’s nothing any adult has not seen before.

        • Actually, I did not intend to show a picture with that much on display. I took the picture down. But those interesting in seeing it can find it on an internet search under Lana Brooke.

          • No I am not sucking up to Heidi. But another commenter pointed out that people with better eyesight can see a lot more than I saw when I chose the picture. And I do not want anyone to think this is a porn site.

          • I understand and reluctantly agree. But, I was directing that comment at niceguy. Niceguy outed himself as the anonymous commentor who snitched about the snatch.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest.
