Dating service fraud 100 percent free chat
Some people think that it is a clear sign of desperation.
Some think that websites online are scams or people that will get only up to no good.
They all begin with some ‘hook.’ Often, the scammer (the would-be suitor) will make contact and use something in common or a common interest, for instance, religion or profession, to spark a romantic relationship.
The relationship usually ramps up very quickly afterward.
As the online relationship gets deeper, the victim is eventually asked for large sums of money.
Some are even asked to carry out illegal activities, and they may go ahead and do them willingly either because they are in love or because they’re being threatened.
There are also cases where the victim knows full well that they’re being scammed, but they are in love with the scammer. This shows the manipulative powers online dating scammers can have and the vulnerability of some of the victims they target. The red flags to look out for Some people assume that only the really ‘stupid’ people can fall for online dating and romance scams. These days, online fraudsters are very clever; by the time you know you are being scammed, you’d have lost a significant amount of money.
They may even ask for photos or videos of an intimate nature of yourself to use as blackmail.
They will also pretend that they need money for emergency purposes or they are having a hard time dealing with their finances.
Finding love online can be challenging because you will never know when you will get to meet the right one or if you are meeting someone who will only scam you out of your pockets.
Not so long ago, it was embarrassing to find love online.
And because many victims are usually too embarrassed to report being duped and conned of large sums of money, these estimates may be grossly under-reported.
