Men scamming dating women
They have even been known to telephone their victims as a first introduction. Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims.I was scammed by a guy calling himself Peter Kaua Sullivan, my fiance.I met him on and he scammed me all my savings over 2 years period from Western Union, Moneygram, Walmart to Walmart, ITunes cards. He tried to make me feel guilty because I couldnt send the money. He had a European accent and told me he was from Sofia, Bulgaria.
“Scammers then extort their victims by threatening to reveal their demand for sexual services to family members or post their personal information on the internet.” According to police, no one showed up to meet the victims during the scams and the sex service did not exist.
They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love. Victims may be embarrassed to talk about their experiences, but you can help.
A simple phone call, email or text, saying “Look what I just found” and sharing this information may make a difference in someone else’s life.
“To escape detection, victims are asked to buy online game token cards and to reveal the passwords to swindlers who cash in by selling the cards,” the source said.
He said each victim could lose anywhere from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands dollars in such scams.
