Dating scammers forum
did these girls say that theyre living with their mum in Ghana because their dad passed away?I've talked to 3 women like this who have had the same story. The scam is sometimes called catfishing and its victims are said to have been catfished. The victim is usually a user of social media or a member of an online dating site.The scammer will reach out to the victim with offers of friendship that very quickly evolve into declarations of love.If so, we're sorry to say there's a good chance you're being scammed. If you think one of your online correspondents is actually a criminal trying to scam you or trick you into being an unwitting accomplice, you should file a complaint with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center.Here are some warning signs you should look out for: By now, especially if you haven't met this guy in person, you should be very concerned. Agent Foxworth also suggests that when looking for love online, you stick to "online dating websites with nationally known reputations." These sites have more oversight and security which helps individuals stay safer.
Many online criminals target dating sites to find unwitting accomplices for money laundering and other schemes.
It's really messing with me and making me wonder if this is a joke or not. Hi, Yes, Ghana is the hotbed for online dating scams. Will try to get as much info as I can so I can report.
I am a foreigner living and working in Ghana since the last couple of years. I have both their pics so will try to send to everyone to be aware of them I have been on matchcom and lately I have been getting a lot of e mails from Ghana. Never one on a weekend, I usually had to write first.
It's pretty easy to tell: They send the same message over and over, often with the same link.
But there's a type of dating site scam that's far trickier to spot, and the people who operate it claim to be making thousands of dollars every month fooling vulnerable men.
