Oh, i LOVE these scammers, especially the one from the lady taking care of her sick mom in Africa, but is trying to get back to the states, and really wants to meet you....
I just follow suit, I'll be like yah, I'm in africa too, taking care of my sick dad. If you want we should meet up for coffee, and see what we can do to get back to the states......trust me there will be no second or third email......lol!
I have had more women from the USA - really be in Africa contact me it isnt even funny ! But I still laugh! They just want to tell you how in love with you they are in the third or forth email, I am sure it is the same for you women out there. Not on this site have I ran into more than 1 maybe 2 but you may think MM site is bad - go try a few other date web sites - they are full of Scammers just looking to prey on the internet date novice.
RULE 1) NEVER - I mean NEVER - send anyone money no matter what these Scammers have cooked up.
Realize - They are professionals. This is their Job. They have been practicing for years. Some are really good at it. I almost sent a woman money, she was in South Africa. Then sure enough, I found her photo, her emails, her phone number ona scammer web site. To those of you men and woman who are fresh from divorce or single and feeling lonely - just be very aware that these Scammers are Professionals and this is their job, this is how they make a living.
I even had a woman email me a photo of her nude to entice me into sending her the money she needed to get from somewhere to Moscow to catch her flight to the USA, before that she even emailed me a copy of her passport. Sometimes they work in groups and are very organized.
Think about this for one minute, they know 9 out of 10 of us will figure out the scam, so they are working everyday, in touch with maybe 40/50 - 100 / people at a time just waiting for that 10% or 5% who will wire them the funds the need so badly for some sad story reason.
One of the latest woman who tried to scam me on was from the UK. Her name is Katherine Cole. Her email is :firstname.lastname@example.org - she needed money for her son who suddenly got ill. When I told her to ask family , not me, the emails stopped. Then I got an email from her 4/5 days later in BIG BOLD Text saying: THANK YOU. - She is actually from another web site I tried and my membership there has not run out yet. She is not on MM web, guys. But she and 1000s like her are out there.
Its all funny stuff, but when you get anyone asking for money, BUT- ITS a SCAM.
Just delete them from your address book and move on.
I had the same thing happen to me only it was a male,who was a engineer and he was paid by check and he sent me a copy of his flight details. On the day that he was flying out he had a fire at his unit and the cook was burnt. Both were at the hospital and he needed money to pay for his flight and also pay for the cook in hospital. Money could only be wired to him as he had no credit cards or friends that he could ask for help. I think he is still waiting for someone to help him, I hope other woman see through his scam and other like him.
there are tons of sites that EXPOSE SCAMMERS just google search for Nigerian scammers, dating site scammers, exposing dating site scammers....you will see the links are endless but many of the sits have photos and report the sams being used.
I want to thank you for exposing these low life people. It angers me and upsets me that there are so many fake people around. I have come across 2 scammers in the past couple of months and have now noticed a photo of the 3rd that I met through another site.. This man was on a site called Metrodate and claims he went off the site of his own accord, I now realise he was probably reported as a scammer and blocked. This man who was called Fredrick334 and Fredrick007 has been emailing me being quite nice and loving..Well thankyou for exposing him to me..I know where he can go now..
I am also thinking that there may be a 5th scammer in contact with me, again through a differant site.
Strange thing that I've noticed is that alot of these scammers seem to put a full name as their profile name not a nickname..hmm
It truly saddens me that its so hard to find a nice, honest, sincere and loving man now days.
For over a year now, I have been posting scammers on here and the blogs.¿ It is turning out to be very time consuming to double post, so I have decided that since the blogs appear to get more readership than the forum, that I will only post on the SCAMMERS/TROLLS/PERVS & GOLD DIGGER blog.¿
Thanks to everyone for your input and support.¿ I hope you will join me on the blog.
Thanks britanny for the scammer's list. I have more, if fact I think that 50% of the men that contact me are bogus. It is frustrating on this site, and makes me think that my membership is wasted. I think it would be easier to reconcile a "good" list, so at least when we look at profiles, we know it is real... I wish MM would actually check the profiles a bit more (even if does cost more it would be money well spent)...
Still looking, but it's trying to find a diamond in a heap of trash..
