Dating sites in all countries
Nobody wants to be scammed yet most people are not quite sure what to look out for.
These are examples of some of the most notorious scams in the world of online dating and on the internet in general.
A scam victim will usually receive an email making an offer of a large sum of money.
The subject lines often read something similar to "From the desk of Mr [name]" or even "Your assistance is solicited".
Again, most often these scammers will pretend to be a Western man but in reality they will be scammers based in Africa.
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.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.The standard scam story then starts to unfold as your online date suddenly has some sort of emergency in Nigeria or Ghana.They do not ask for money to buy the ticket or even for visa expenses… However, there is usually a last minute glitch and they will request you to send them a large amount of money without which the trip will be impossible.These scammers know immigration rules and regulations well and might even cite some sort of visa requirement as their reason for requesting money.
