Pictures men jail internet dating
While online dating sites work hard to eliminate scammers from their sites, unfortunately some continue to be very deceptive and get past the fraud checks so it is important to be aware of what a potential scammer might attempt to do.
Nobody wants to be scammed yet most people are not quite sure what to look out for.
Another common scam one comes across in online dating is the medical emergency scam.
Just when you think your online relationship is going really well, your online partner will be faced with some sort of medical emergency.
Like all scams, there is a last minute problem and you will be requested to send some money to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Needless to say that is the last you will hear of your apparent fortune.
Instead of asking you to send them money for their ticket, they will instead send you scanned copies of a ticket to convince you they are genuine and are really coming to visit you.
This is one of the most popular scams in online dating.
Armed with their fake identity, the scammer proceeds to forge a bond with you.
They often communicate with you for weeks and months so you think you are getting to know them better while it is actually all part of their master plan.
It’s terrible being the victim of a scam and the first thing most scam victims do is contact the police in the hope they can actually catch the person who duped them.
Sometimes scammers figure out you are onto them but instead of backing off, they take advantage of the situation by pretending to be the police.
So say you have been duped by a Nigerian scammer and you contact the Nigerian police for help.
