Rated 4.91/5 based on 880 customer reviews

“These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. Their most common targets are women over 40 who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk.” A scammer begins with establishing confidence with an initial exchange of passionate emails. The primary goal of the perpetrator is to win the trust of a vulnerable heart and to get their money. Regardless of the length of time, the scammer is stealing and furthermore stepping on a heart.There isn’t an ounce of compassion, guilty or remorse for what they do.I do believe in romance and love as someone once wrote, “Love doesn’t need to be perfect; it just needs to be true.” I also recognize we can’t be constantly paranoid.Yet it wise to listen to our intuition, heart and knowledge.- Their last names are usually Cole, Moore, Smith or Williams - They say they are "XX by name" and "XX by age" - They say "am" instead of "I am", for example: "am Williams by name..." - They say "hope to read from you soon" - They say they are from Keller, VA. Because it has the same zip code as Nigeria: 23401 - Their occupation is often "building contractor" or "civil engineer" for men and "model" or "nurse" for women - Their introductory letter often contains the phraze: "Remeber the distance or colour does not matter but love matters alot in life." (typical for Senegal scammers) - They immediately want to get off the website and onto Yahoo IM or MSN IM - They are not usually around on the weekends to IM - They IM at unusual hours for your time zone - Their profile seems to disappear off the website immediately after conversation begins - Their spelling is atrocious - They are notorious for using 'i' instead of 'I' - They consistently use webspeak or abbreviations: u r ur cos pls/plz ma sry brb div acc - Their grammar is not consistent with how Americans speak, French speak etc...

(instead of Martin, William, Kevin, Wayne) - The women names are often misspelled, like Jenifer instead of Jennifer, Ashly instead of Ashley, or Marry instead of Mary.Suspect you may be dealing with a Nigerian scammer?Here is a wonderful list originally compiled by the Romancescams Yahoo group, but modified and extended by us.Disclaimer regarding pictures posted on the board: please understand that you are NOT looking at the pictures of people who are actually scamming you.The people portrayed on these photos are innocent men and women, NOT involved in scamming in any way and have nothing to do with scammers.
