Things to ask when dating online
And this mastermind is not at all who you think (s)he is... A scammer usually finds a set of pictures of an attractive girl 18-45 years old female (or, if the scammer IS an attractive girl, she uses her own pictures) and places personal ads in as many international dating catalogs as possible.A lot of scammers actively seek out new potential victims rather than wait for the victims to come to them.Almost all scammers tell their victims that "this the the first time she uses the internet to get aquatinted with a man".To speed up the process, the scammer "falls in love" with each of the potential victims literally within two to six weeks.
The bait will keep the "flames of his love" alive by periodically chatting with him on the phone or sending him descriptions of "her" erotic fantasies.
If the guy agrees, the "lady" pretends to put all effort into making "her" travel arrangements. " She" acts surprised to find out that there are various expensive requirements that " she" has to comply with before she can fly out of the country.
Those supposed requirements usually include proof of financial independence and requirement to pay off all loans that "she" has in her name.
Quickly, the " female" (the bait) falls in love with her Internet acquaintance, and shortly after " she" begins to plan her travel to see her Mr. Money issues arise, and, reluctantly, the bait asks the gentleman to help "her" with money for her visa and tickets.
Very often, the bait tells the guy that she has a work offer in his country, and she would be able to pay off the loaned money to him quickly.
