I was caught in a romance scam for over a year. This person told me they lived in another state but would not call. Money was sent to this person (several thousand dollars, as they told me they were divorced after her ex abandoned her and her daughter). After six months of being lied to this person "came clean" and told me her daughter was living with her aunt in the US and that her ex abandoned her in Nigeria with nothing but her luggage. Said her name is Katie Morgan but had Western Union/Money Gram transfers always sent to others as the banks in Nigeria wouldn't allow transfers to be sent in her name because it wasn't a Nigerian name. Then I was told it had met a lady that she'd became good friends with named Nneka and that I could send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka. That was the final straw and I've since stopped talking to this person and changed my phone number.
I've just been scammed by a guy he payed me compliments and told me he loved me and I believed him I fell in love with him stupidly had cybersex with him and told him a lot of info I got suspicious after he asked for money and he kept saying his phone battery was dying and he often left the conversation after I would not give him what he wanted the money the I tunes card he so wants I told him I can't afford to and I was depressed from him blanking me and making me feel guilty don't fall for it it's all crap block them please don't them get in to your heart and do what it's done to me I'm now so depressed and heartbroken a mess save yourself before it gets to serious
And beyond that, I've never been treated so well even in my own home country — has never treated me like this people. The welcomed me with opened arms, warm smile ans opened heart. I don't think anybody could determine how much I appreciate these people. They've done everything for me. Everything! I haven't have to do anything, but just wake up in the morning — breakfast is there. I didnt have to do anything — supper is there. I didnt have to worry about nothing — the car is there.
I met this guy on the dating site a month a go. He said he is currently deployed i Nigeria. Just the way goes on getting to know each other process asking such questions. He said he was divorsed having a 8 year old daughter. I asked photos & he consistently sent me pictures of him having his face, his daughter & even his brother. He said he ia from SD. His deployment will end this Oct. A ccouple of weeks we lost communication for 8 days, then when he got back he said he needes $655 for internet connection to keep communication. He also mentioned he was just connecting to his roommate's wifi. He call each other everyday via whatsapp (but no video, since he saod is banned). Now he is asking $755 for his vaction papers. I told him i could not raise it. He responded "just try your best so he can come over here & get his fees once he is on vacation". I informed his that US ARMY vaction papers has no cost at all, then he stated "would you think i lie". He wanted me to send money to his commanders info. I said i cannot, he gave me a bitcoin code rather.
Of course, some people are just shy or are nervous about meeting people that they&rsquo ve met online this isn&rsquo t anything out of the ordinary (it&rsquo s also possible that they&rsquo re trying to avoid getting caught by a spouse Ashley Madison: What Happens Now We Know You're A Cheater Ashley Madison: What Happens Now We Know You're A Cheater The Ashley Madison dating site was recently hacked by hackers who threatened to leak the entire database unless the site closed. This week, the database has been leaked. Are your indiscretions about to become public? Read More ). However, repeated excuses at the last minute are a definite warning sign. Some scammers will use similar excuses for avoiding phone conversations, though many will talk to you on the phone before reeling you in for the scam.
I got talking to a woman on a dating site. The conversation moved from the site to whatsapp and we have been talking on whatsapp for a long time in the evening and she is sending videos and images of herself. Everything being talked about is normal in the conversation and nothing out of the ordinary. Tuesday she said that she needed to go to casablanca for a meeting about some affairs. Then on wednesday she said that the meeting is not going well and that she needs to send a package to france and could I receive this package. It is at this moment I knew that it was a scam, so now I am playing the scammer. My best line so far has been that I have shown her photo to my friend who is a policeman and he thinks that you are really cute and that he looks forward to meeting you. I have given all her details to the local police.
The're out there they want your money because they're the winner you are the loser. They have their own song about. Never give them money, they will do everything they can to get your money. I smart they will never get it. I would like to see one of them actually fly here. Western Union is suppose to ask you how long you know this person and protect you from sending the money. You don't know this girl she's a fake and lair. They just want the money nothing else matters just the money!
I just had a go round with this SAME guy. I reported him to as a scammer.
I didn't give in when he asked that I wire money to Turkey and called him out but he continued to try to keep me on the hook. Same story, his credit card not working in Turkey and he needs $$ for machines and materials and as soon as that's settled he'll be coming home to spend a week with me.
He told me he was an architect/specialist contractor and yes got a job in Turkey that he had to leave town immediately for. Had a supposed Turkish cell and whatsapp acct.
I demanded he send me verified ID and he kept coming up with reasons why he could not--company in Turkey keeps their passports until the job is done, he left his driver's license at home. He finally sent me a fake CA driver's license with a bunch of mistakes on it and when I called him out on that he finally stopped trying to keep me on the hook. He popped up on under a new profile and I reported him again.
I'm in contact with a orthopaedic doctor, who tells me his in Ukraine, we've been chatting every day for some time now. He claims to have two sons, firstly he asked me for iTunes card so he could communicate with his boys, i was stupid enough to get him £65 of them, then next UN hadn't delivered supplies, so he was hungry and dirty, he asked for £755, which i said i would try and get but never. Then last night he said could i get £655 because supplies still not arrived. He constantly tells me how much i mean to him, but don't they all? Since joining a dating site, think I've had more scammers than hot dinners.
I chat with him on viber, what should I do?
Most of the time, you can spot an online dating scammer by trusting your instincts if something looks off, be extra wary. It all seems obvious in hindsight, but people want to believe in other people, and that can get in the way of our better judgment. Always be on the lookout, and be extra wary when you meet new people online. If you have suspicions, don&rsquo t ignore them. Taking these precautions can help save you thousands of dollars and even more heartbreak.
Beware of a scammer using the name Katie Morgan claiming to live in Orlando Florida and has a daughter named Vera. She lives in Lagos Nigeria and may have you send her money through another person via Western Union or MoneyGram. She may eventually ”come clean" with you admitting she lives in Ikeja Lagos Nigeria and has a friend named Nneka and tells you you can send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka because the banks there won't allow her to receive money using her "actual" name. This person will swear her undying love and may refer to you as her "King". If you say you're done with her she'll say she's going to commit suicide. May even tell you she's either in the hospital or just got out of the hospital.
I'm writing because I have concerns that my aunt is currently being romanced by a scammer. She's 69, overweight, been divorced over 65 years, and hasn't dated at all in that time. She does have a 69 yr old daughter and has prob poured her time into that. But, she started talking to a guy on Our last week. Within a couple days of making a profile. She's never been on a dating site before. He is supposedly 69 (looks like mid 55's to me), wife died of cancer, has a son, and lives a couple hrs from where we do in Alabama, BUT he is currently in Michigan for work b/c that is where he is from and has a business there. He also has told her he will be traveling to Mexico soon for work. I think she said he has a scrap metal business. Within a day or of meeting online he told her he was taking his profile down b/c he had met the woman for him. He then sent her a YouTube video of a song called "God Sent Me You" or something. She ate that up.
Sorry for all this situation you are going thru. But 655% sure that person is a con artist , and found you and easy target.
I just received a communication from an wonderful-good looking gay guy from Russia asking me for money, I met him thru a gay site.
Is been three weeks only , not enough time for this ,a friend of mine has a similar story , therefore I do have all the warnings. Needless to say , I didn't believe , so I went thru all the information on the web about gay-scam-fraud ,so after that I decided to call the FBI and report this crook : https:///scams-safety/e-scams
I hope my story will help.
In 7566, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming &ldquo industry&rdquo was worth over $55 million, but it&rsquo s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate. People are often ashamed to come forward and admit that they&rsquo ve been duped. It&rsquo s not a good feeling to have been taken advantage of, and a scheme that&rsquo s so obvious in hindsight is even harder to admit to.
As the Crane dance went on usually a man would see a woman that did strike his fancy. Unlike our current dating customs, the native American dating customs required that the man speak to his mother who then would speak to the mother of the girl he was interested in. After the mothers have been spoken to the man is told he is allowed to come to the lodge. Usually he waits until everyone is sleeping and he makes a light and finds the girl he wants. Waking her up he then uses the light to illuminate his own face so she can see who he is. If she is happy with him she is to blow out his light and the next day he will be a part of the family.
In my opinion, it 8767 s necessary that foreign women become more pro-active. They should be the ones to take the initiative.
This might be scary at first, especially if you 8767 ve grown up in an environment where it was ok to play the 8775 shy girl 8776 . But just because a Japanese guy isn 8767 t approaching you actively, doesn 8767 t necessarily mean he 8767 s not interested.
Why Use Online Dating Sites?
Another reason for using a dating site is to get away from traditional dating methods. Going to the local bar, blind dates, going to a dance or country club are some of the old ways of doing things. With the internet age among us we don't have to confine ourselves to our neighborhood and we can do our searching behind the safety of our screens. The internet allows for the unfiltered ice breaking opportunity to meet someone. The best part is that it's a Free dating site, so you have nothing to lose!
I think you're right. I've seen "California City, CA" and "Oregon City, OR" and "Michigan City, MI" etc. on so many profiles that scream scam that it makes me think these scammers aren't very creative! I wish we didn't have to wade through all this crap to find love. I've given up on it. I would date a guy who is 98 and bald (maybe because I'm an age appropriate match), but I can't find any who are real and who aren't looking for 78-year-old women. Sigh. I hope your friend survives this without losing his life savings.
Scammers are good at being charming and saying all the right things and they start it fast. They have a lot of victims to get through, so they&rsquo re going to try to move things along as quickly as possible. They&rsquo ll hit you with the full force of their charm they&rsquo ll say sweet things, compliment you a lot, and talk about how perfect you are for each other within the first couple weeks. Think about if you would find it strange for someone to be acting like this if you just met in real life. If someone was expressing over-the-top love and passion within a couple weeks, you&rsquo d be worried.
I too have had the lovely pleasure of such scam artists. One a guy who was on an oil his son with nanny at 't leave enough money so could I send some..
The second one was A Doctor doing humanitarian work for the UN in Syria. He never asked for money but wanted me to apply for him to come home on a me to pretend to be his sister or all I know he could have been a terroist.
The third is hard on the guy a lot..claimed to be a structural engineer and won a bid on a contract in Malaysia. Was time to come home but government there wanted him to pay the income tax on the projected earnings before he of course he didn't have the money and it would take two weeks to get from his bank and he didn't want to be stuck there for that long. Good thing I am poor because I didn't have the money to send and told him so.
All three were sure I was the gal for them and that we would be together one day! Hah!
