Online dating scams to avoid 1 adult speed dating
An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist.
Don’t send money to tide someone over after a mugging or robbery, and don’t do anyone a favor by making an online purchase or forwarding a package to another country.
Many companies won’t ship to scam- beleaguered countries, so scammers might use you as an unwitting fence by directing you to forward property they’ve bought with stolen cards.
* Ask you for personal information or passwords that can get them into your online accounts.
Be wary if love letters don’t match a writer’s usual style — and use online searches to ferret out lifted phrases.
* Provide few concrete details about their lives or work. Scammers mask their identities by sending shots of strangers they pull off the Internet. * String you along for weeks or months before asking you for money.
(Wired money is as good as gone the minute it’s sent.) * Ask you to wire them money so they can be with you.
(These are often purchased with stolen credit cards.) * Want to see you on a Webcam – even though their Webcam never seems to work.
Bells should go off if anyone overseas asks you for money — or offers to send you money.
