After many failed relationships, she decided to try out dating sites because her friends won't let her be.They kept prodding her about doing something different for once and see if her prince charming can finally emerge from the dating site. Before taking that plunge, she used to pride herself as being a rational, realistic and careful woman.
When a scammer confesses they are a scammer and they fell in love with you; this another part of the scam.
And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.
Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason.
These heartless fraudsters, known as Nigerian scammers, are much, much worse than your parasitic ex. The Nigerian scam has long been flagged as a common type of cyber crime. Financial Crimes Division of the Secret Service reportedly receives 100 calls a day from people claiming to be victims of a Nigerian scam. Here's how the con typically works: You get an email from someone asking for your help. To obtain an arrest warrant for the perpetrator, you'd have to acquire a huge body of evidence of email communications, phony documents, bank transactions, etc.
Then, once you hand over your banking info and pay a "small fee" to cover the expenses related to the transfer, the so-called "prince" sucks your savings dry. If an unsolicited email reads like a drunk text, it's probably a hoax. That's a clear sign that Sandra doesn't know what the hell she's talking about. Spare yourself the trauma of a drawn-out, potentially inconclusive criminal investigation.
