Dating Scams

Top 5 Popular Approaches Online Dating Scammer use to Scam Online Daters in Dating Apps & Dating Websites … Enjoy!

 

1. “Let’s chat elsewhere” – (Top #1 Technique for Dating Scams)

Most scammers who are on the prowl for victims to scam on top Online Dating Apps & Online Dating Sites like Tinder, eHarmony, Match.com, CoffeeMeetsBagel or EliteSingles are likely to ask their victims to go off the site by giving them an excuse such as ‘my membership is expiring and it’s best we talk on the phone or exchange email addresses to keep in contact’.

This is a tactic often employed by con artists where they request to exchange personal phone numbers and email addresses so they can cheat their victims offline and not get caught. They can be individual scammers, or be a savvy group or syndicate scammers, operating from overseas countries with an unknown location.

This is because it reduces the likelihood that victims would report this scammer on the Dating Site, and for the authorities to trace these cheaters down with their online accounts.

Furthermore, it’s likely that these con artists would trawl the same Online Dating Sites, to search for new victims after he or she is done scamming you.

So, do all of your fellow legitimate members a favor and report him before they also fall into his trap.

 

2. “You’re so beautiful”

Con artists go through an elaborate process of choosing their victims.

They target people who have low self esteem and weaknesses; such as men and women in their 50s or 60s who are widowed or divorced (past their prime), and even those who suffer from weight or health issues.

Because these groups of people may feel that they are undeserving of love, they often get embroiled in the scammer’s trap and fall mindlessly in love with these con artists who are just out to cheat them for their money.

More often than not, these scammers flourish their victims with incessant sweet talk, compliments and flattery and some of these victims might mistake them for true love.

 

3. “Could I ask for a little favor?” – (Popular #2 Excuse in Dating Scams)

Many scammers flaunt their ‘wealth’ by using stolen photos, showing that they drive luxurious cars and own huge mansions.

They are also often seen traveling to many exotic destinations and places of interests in a bid to to prove to you that they are wealthy and do not have any financial issues.

Oddly enough, they would come up with an excuse to loan money from you, on the pretext that they can’t access their money at that point in time.

To protect yourself against these blatant cheaters, you could do a Google image search to see if their photos match the photos of another real person.

If it is, then it is likely that have stolen someone’s identity to cheat you.

 

#4 “I think you wet juicy sexy. You meet me?”

If you are chatting with someone and realize that the sentences used are ungrammatical, sounds odd with awkward word use or even spelling, it is likely that you are dealing with a foreign scammer.

Clarify with the person about his or her background (where are you from?) or ask about their qualifications (which university did you graduate from?).

If he or she claims to have a college degree but is unable to string a proper sentence together, you have every reason to be suspicious.

 

#5 “I am not at the area currently” – (Highly Obvious #3 Advice on Dating Scams)

Even though she is geo-tagged to be living in your neighborhood or somewhere really close to you, she will always find an excuse not to meet you in person.

Firstly, scammers look nothing like the photo they have uploaded because it is probably stolen from somewhere.

Secondly, they are always unavailable; suddenly there would be an emergency which require them to fly overseas urgently, OR they are traveling for work OR they are out stationed at some far-flung place.

The list is endless.
