internet dating scams out of west africa
Hey I was just caught up in the weirdest 3 weeks of my life.


Has anyone had or encountered this thru the net?

Met someone, seemed nice. A nurse doing service work with the Salvation Army who said she was from Australia.
Seemed harmless enough to chat with for awhile
then when I told a friend about it he said to watch out because there were all these scams being run out of Ghana
of the same nature.
Now I don't know what to think except everything she/he/whoever did was right down the line with a scam
I found at a website for internet scams.


Just don't want anyone to get screwed in one of these.

Any info at all would be appreciated.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
met on a not so mainstream site

I was just curious about what's going on out there
since losing my wife back in March.

so I end up on Yahoo mesenger chating and latter
texting. I ask about her birthday and it's right around the corner right. So I offer to send her a card and gift box
to be nice and I ask her if there is anything she needs.
She wants an expensive new 4G phone and I'm like uh... no
hon. But I send her a package and card anyways. Candles,
for when the power goes out, some chocolates she sent me as
a gift(part of the long story)a teddybear that says nurses give from the heart etc.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
no it's ok but I was intrigued by how good the scam was.


I had no idea this went on. even showed me herself on a
webcam in the same room the pictures were she was sending
I didn't give her anything but was shocked when I found the scam and she just kept it going like the gig wasn't up yet.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
I made a report with an agency the works with cyber crime
and contacted the SA in both the US and Ghana and gave them all the info I had.

I can see how people would get caught up in this really bad.


They were patient and persistent and when I called
them out she tried to convince me that I had ruined her career and she now stuck there. lol

Just really fucking weird.
Fuck the dating strangers shit

I just don't want to go out to the bars.

I thought this was a safe way to test the waters
as the house is getting kinda quiet but
damn ...

... here there be monsters!!!

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
so I guess I'm the only one who never heard of this till
now.

Creepy!


My friend was dating a young woman for awhile
and she turned into a stalking psycho so
Im kinda nervous about getting into any of
that kind of trouble.
I was with my wife for 17 years so
I really don't have a clue.


The world seems to of changed a lot
but then again, maybe not.
lol

All of the dating websites is full of Nigerian romance scammers too. They will put a photo of a handsome white guy from the states but they are really black nigerians trying to get money.

I've heard of it. I think as a general rule if they ask for or accept gifts and money from you, then they are trying to scam you.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
They are all over the place OP.

I've had multiple conversations with Russian supermodels who all want to come to Florida and "make me the happiest man on earth." The only catch is, they all need $1000 to finish paying for their ticket. lmao

They are easy to spot, and they never answer direct questions. They just send you form letters and pics hoping to catch a fish. Report this jagoff to the site admin. and use them for entertainment.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
United States citizens should be alert to attempts at fraud by persons claiming to live outside of the U.S., professing friendship, romantic interest, and /or marriage intentions over the Internet.

Typically, once a connection is made, the correspondent asks the U.S. citizen to send money or credit card information for living expenses, travel expenses, or "visa costs". Sometimes, the correspondent notifies the American citizen that a close family member, usually the mother, is in desperate need of surgery and begins to request monetary assistance. Scams have even advanced to the point where the U.S. citizen is informed of a serious or fatal accident to the correspondent and the “family” asks for money to cover hospital or funeral costs. Several citizens report losing thousands of dollars through such scams.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
You didnt explain the situation that well.. Im confused how she actually tried scamming you? Just faked that she was interested in you and asked for a gift on her birthday?

And yeah, many scams are coming from Ghana, people acting as poor black people come into paltalk Christian rooms(cause Christians are the only people who give to the poor these days it seems) and they say they need food, or they private message everyone in the room, its pretty annoying because they just want money all the time.. if they are really poor I would help them out, but I have no money to give anyway..

So yeah, I guess thats a form of a scam, they always say their from Ghana too, not sure why, as their are many countries in africa and I would suspect more nations do this too, you could actually make 50+ dollars a day probably doing this yourself lol.

OP, Internet dating websites can be the pits for trying to meet people. Have you tried to find a group on meetup dot com? If you have a hobby there ought to be group near you. Good luck in your search for a mate.

Re: internet dating scams out of west africa
ok, wow.

I was more or less playin Columbo with her to get as much info out of her as I could to hand over to authorities.


Hate to see some lonely person get scamed this way.
It's just terrible. Was very convincing at first for
someone who has never heard of this.



was out the other night and some guy I knew from another
job girlfriend was hitting on me big time right in front of him.
Was awkward as hell, probable stay away from that too.


ahhh, I forgot how much fun this was ...

LOL


single ...

to be or not to be

Scam or not you should of ran the moment the gold digger asked for expensive new 4G phone, most women tend to be gold diggers, whorish or just plain crazy.
