I wanted to add to the topic of OnLine Dating Scammers a bit more.
In the profile of any dating sign up. one is asked to put in the profile section if yu are single. divorced or widowed. i find myself receiving emails requests from many foreign men mostly I believe because
my profile says Widowed.
I am more experienced now with what to look for. As i mentioned several comments months ago. there are key words, the females are aware of. Look in the profile and see if the second langauge is
Spanish French a different language other than English. This is my first red flag. Next i look in the description of their profile if they are searching for the term. G-d fearing woman" Invariably that was used in the first set of scammers i encountered on my first experience on online dating sites. Then see if they say widowed.
THe wife has had a car accident leaving a middle school age child. or has passed from long term illness.
The male then talks of home schooling his child , is an engineer or archetect. living in another state than mine and easily is willing to relocate cause he works from home.
Sometimes the child lives with his parents back in his home country and sometimes more frequently is now working on his own business and when asked what might that be. hes a jewler . no website nor way to verify his career.
Yes as someone said. i find that the person asks the same questions many times for i realize that its pre written and we are just numbers receiving the same text. If you send it to enough women. eventually you find a sucker who falls for the ploy.
By the 2nd email. the person is falling in love with you. and not surprisingly. has sent so many of his pre written emails to Mary or Susie . can't remember who you are when you return his questions.
Rarely asks anything about you. just that he's falling in love with you. and can he send the pictures of him or his son or daughter /
instant messenger is the next request and can he get the cell or land line of mine.
i turn it around and ask for his cell. you can look up the cell numbers on reverse phonenumber and it helps pin point where the calls orginate from/
It does not take long before you realize this could be a ghana or other gang member and once you ask them for thier cell number. they flee away.
i dont spend more than several emails responding before i now know who may be real and who is trying to pretend to be another and yes they can take anyones picture and use it on thier own.
no site really polices who signs in. however i have reported one on J Date and the admistration took them off.
For me. this has been an eye opener of dating in the 21st century.
