Patience is it’s hall mark.
Online Dating Scams Are Now All Over Facebook.
These tricksters have evolved and have found new territory to call their own hunting grounds. If you know someone who
JUST CAN’T FECKING BELIEVE THIS GORGEOUS WOMAN/MAN IS FALLING HEAD OVER HEELS FOR OLE MUGGINS HERE
then politely and kindly show them this. It really will save them a lot of heart break and financial fraudulent mishaps in the future.
These cold predators have been known to frequent sites that deal with, you guessed it , tailor made dating sites. In recent times however they have moved insidiously onto social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter etc – you name it. They are everywhere.
This would be a typical scenario involving this scam and run a little something like this. The beginning is my own experience but the rest is fictitious.
The Beginning of the Scam.
I recently opened up a Facebook Account and added a few family and friends, as you do. I started posting a lot of videos up that I make on YouTube and get my fair share of comments and activity, I am glad to say. One day I got out of bed and logged onto Facebook and seen over 40 FRIEND REQUESTS!
I ran through some of the more suspicious ones, but most seemed to just like my posts, so I added them to that particular group and got no complaints for doing so.
However, there were one or two ‘ladies’ that contacted me via that little chat box thingy and started talking to me. I had some really f&(*ing weird conversations I can tell you!
I noticed ALL of them were just out of this world beautiful and they got really, a little, too personal with me. This is YOUR FIRST WARNING SIGN EVERYONE!
These scammers get personal and tend to flow a lot of ‘love’ your way all too damn quickly, its a very reliable clue that you are dealing some disingenuous human beings out to scam you.
Needless to say, I UNFRIENDED THOSE WEIRDOS LOL!
*End of my experience. The rest is HOW it could transpire to you getting your heart broken and financially stolen from.
Let’s say…I got really friendly with one beautiful stunning lady. She was funny and intelligent and we had tons in common. I was delighted to meet a real and down to earth woman after being along for so long. I really felt like I could be myself and never have to have my guard up at any moment. (This is what they wait for, the lowering of YOUR guard after a lot of trust has been built – don’t fall for it)
Two months later and we decided that it was time for us to meet but she lived abroad (I don’t know – pick an exotic location) and recently lost her job. This meant she was upset and after much talking I decided to help her to pay for her flights. (DOH!) (Flights can be expensive!). So I sent her the money and she seemed so much happier, I was relieved to have helped someone I loved.
SHE NEVER ARRIVED!
AND SHE UNFRIENDED AND BLOCKED MY DUMB SELF!
This is one scenario.
Another variation, for some excellent and plausible reason, a man or woman may get you to receive a package at your address just to redirect to their home address abroad. This is commonly know as Reshipping Jobs and is a reliable staple of the con artist.
I could go on to all the other variations but I think you get the idea.
Key Red Flags Points Regarding this Scam~:
- If they are SUPER DUPER BEAUTIFUL! (Does not mean to say it’s not possible, ok).
- If they fall SUPER DUPER IN LOVE WITH YOU IN 1 SECOND FLAT!
- If they GET VERY PERSONAL FAR TOO QUICKLY!
- If they HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD IN COMMON WITH YOU!
- If they LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU!
- If they AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAY!
- If they…(Look, if you know a lady like this please please introduce me – ok? – thanks guys).
Oh, I almost forgot. These scavengers will try to (may) get you to send intimate pic’s of yourself.
