Signs of an online scammer

Your online lover is only interested in money if he:

  • He insists to leave the dating site and continue communication via personal e-mail or social media;
  • He sends you perfect photos of smiling happy people who look like photos from glossy magazines;
  • Practically from the very beginning of his acquaintance, he confesses his love, writes ardent sweet speeches;
  • He has a strange, sometimes ridiculous description of the profile, the name and information in which it does not coincide with what he writes in the messages;
  • The interviewee does not speak to you by name, calls you a bunny, a cat, and other diminutive words;
  • He says that he is a citizen of other countries: the USA, Great Britain, France, Germany, etc., who travels or works abroad;
  • He plans to visit you, but at the very last moment the trip is postponed due to some tragic coming;
  • He is somewhere stipulated that he is temporarily located in an African country: Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, etc., on some very important matter;
  • He asks for money for various reasons (travel, medical assistance, payment of a bill for a sick child, payment of a visa or other documents, etc.).
