Nigerian dating sites usa
Internet romance scams and other related crimes are affecting and ruining lives throughout the world. The more people that are educated in the way the scams work, the harder it is for the scammers to make money and the more scammers that can be put out of business.
The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable.They then post ads with fake profiles on online dating sites .They also lurk in chat rooms and social networking sites as well as Christian and other religious-based dating sites.They then spend months chatting up and luring their naive targets with online intimacy.They often pretend to be foreign specialists [from the US, UK or Canada, but can be any European country]temporarily working in Nigeria or other African country.The scam may take the form of asking you to cash a check for them through your bank account because they are "out of the country" and unable to cash it themselves, or they may come right out and ask you to send money to help them out of a fabricated "financial difficulty" they claim to be experiencing.
These are all lies used to try to make them easy money from an unsuspecting victim.
Instead of sending spam letters that promise millions for your assistance, these scammers are targeting single men and women who are searching for love online.
They use psychological tricks to lure their victims in, use poetry and even gifts to get them under their spell, and then once you are there, will try to reach for your wallet, all the time declaring their "undying love" for you.
They also tend to target middle-aged people looking for stable relationships.
The rationale is that this type of person is likely to be more desperate, gullible and financially stable.
They prefer to use images of white people capitalising on stereotypes and perceptions.
