Dating sites of scammers
The poor woman’s story fits what the FBI is seeing more of: an actor spends a few months building a relationship with a victim, then asks for money or electronics …or to open a bank account under the guise of sending or receiving funds, in the case of recruiting unsuspecting mules.
These goods are purchased with stolen credit cards.This is how these swindles go: First, the conman or woman gets their victim’s trust. Last year, we saw a romance scam victim who not only sent money to the conman posing as her beau; she also allegedly plotted to kill her own mother for cash to send to him/them/whoever was conning her. An example of the rising trend of recruiting mules from dating sites is that of a woman who met somebody on a dating site who convinced her that he was a civil engineer. He’d secured a very lucrative contract for a job, he said, but he needed somebody trustworthy to bring it to fruition.Then, they try to convince them to send money, whether it’s for an airfare to visit, to ostensibly bail them out when they claim to have gotten arrested en route, to prove they can be trusted, to buy a home for the heartthrob they’ve never met, or for any other of an endless litany of sob stories. Would the love of his life be up for traveling to South America to pick up the contract and carry it to him in London? Her “boyfriend” said the company would pay for her airfare.All types of scams are described in details on Romancescam.- General info on Nigerian dating scams - General info on Russian dating scams - Our HUGE scam database with photos that scammers use - Signs you may be dealing with a Nigerian scammer - Signs you may be dealing with a Russian scammer - Profile descriptions used by Russian scammers: Page 1 - Profile descriptions used by Russian scammers: Page 2 - Profile descriptions used by Russian scammers: Page 3 - Addresses and names used by Nigerian scammers - Phone numbers used by Nigerian scammers - Forum: report your scammer here - E-mail addresses of scammers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - How to detect the Russian scam - How do Russian scammers operate - Tactics of Russian scammers - Why Russian scammers use The Bat!
