Dating scams sent flowers
Even if they’ve been taken for tens of thousands of dollars.
They’re not going to get satisfaction legally or financially.
So if your profile hints at any of those, you’re more of a target. Q: I’m already in a relationship online – can I be sure it’s for real? Some of these fake relationships can last for years. Q: My lover sends me gifts – surely that means he’s for real? They’ll send gifts, and make users feel beautiful and cared for, and then it them with a test. That way dating sites detection systems have less chance of picking up on unusual lines of communication.
What they can do is suck up the scammers time and just reel them in in return. In fact, in the dating industry, some sites used to use ‘scammer hell.’ They’ll identify scammers and then put them into their own database where they just scam each other. If you hop on a plane to meet your lover, you might be placing yourself in physical danger.
My advice, don’t send money to someone you’ve never met, and don’t jump on a plane until you’ve verified the identity and existence of the person you’re visiting.
Not the using, not the theft, not causing an innocent person to go to jail...
I want to tell you about a type of scum-of-the-earth I have encountered. I have learned that this is a huge problem, estimated at reeling in an astounding billion per year from American, Canadian, European, and Australian victims. The Nigerian scammer, regardless of his or her nationality, ethnicity, or physical location, has no remorse, no guilt, about any of this. We were men and women who happen to have the qualities of being open, compassionate, loving, and trusted those who we loved and we believed loved us.
