In reality you're talking to a criminal sitting in a cybercafé with a well-rehearsed script he's used many times before.He's hunting through chat rooms, dating sites and social networking sites searching for victims, looking to cash in on romance.And here are some key points to remember about the scams. Scammers are present everywhere on the dating websites.Even if you use established dating websites, like Match.com, e Harmony, etc., and even the women say they live in your own country, you may be scammed.If you are over 40, recently divorced, a widow, elderly or disabled then all the better in his eyes.Scammers use any weakness they find to their advantage.It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.
Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.
The suspects chatted with the victims for a while before starting to come up with different scenarios which would see women depositing or transferring money to the banking details which the suspects provided.
The 31-year-old Cape Town woman, who allegedly received the money via money market transactions, was found with R50,000 in cash when she was arrested.
Bob Have just joined as a free member but always use the internet to research the sites first and thanks for letting me know the site is a scam. Emails from girls who don't exist and your profile is posted on other sites such as milf and passion matures. Was stupid enough to take out a 6 month subscription after supposedly receiving emails from women in my area on the site.
Why can't theses folks put a little genuine effort into the site and guys and gals might actually enjoy and pay often. As soon as I took out the subscription and replied to some of the emails the profiles disappeared or I did not receive a single reply.
