Dating scammer laura smith german jewish dating site in germany
I get a lot of people asking me how to spot a scammer online and the truth is, spotting a scammer is at once very difficult and very easy.Back when I used to work as a moderator, it was my job to spot scammers before they even got a chance to try and scam someone by looking at their profiles, and sometimes the messages they tried to send. They’d be dating on a site set up to accept only people in the UK, but their profile would say they were in Africa (so how did they get the number of a UK credit card, the only type of card they could use to sign up?
Sometimes they will work you for a while – weeks or even months – before asking for money, but sooner or later they will. Unfortunately, by that point, their would be victim is already emotionally invested in the situation, which makes it harder to come to terms with the fact that you’re dealing with a scammer.
This is why it’s important to remember that if someone asks you for money so early on, it’s a bad idea, regardless of whether or not they are a professional, known scammer.
Some would go on about being “God fearing” and ask for money straight away, or even try the Nigerian money scam in their first message!
So yes, these scammers are easy to spot before they even make a move, but obviously not all scammers are that obvious and stupid.
He asked for my snail address to send me a card but what I got was a dozen long stem Roses, a teddy bear and a box of Candy. Every Day I did an ip search and boy this guy traveled! I was getting bored with him so I told him I was very poor and I had nothing to offer him.
That didn't work so then when he told me after Christmas he would come and visit me but he wasn't in the state and that was the bye bye.
