Very well said, Wings.  I too have found it east to detect the scammers.  I talk to them, report them and move on.  Your comment is very well written as if your profile (yes I read them all).  I hope this holiday brings you together with a specail man and much happiness.  If you get a chance, try chatting in the chat room, there are many nice people there.  I have made some wonderful friends on this site but so far no lucl in finding "Mr. Right".
Happy Holidays

Quoting bepositive:

I think I chatted with the same guy.....did he say he was in the service in Iraq?  I hate when scammers try to tug at our hearts by saying they are servicemen.   Think of it this way, Jen, you have a clean slate and can now type new and refreshing things on your profile.  You have wonderful writting skills......take care.



Hello and Merry Christmas to Bepositive, along with anyone else who could be reading this :)

Yes, like a few others have stated on this site there is romancescam.com but it is pretty time consuming to look at the photos. They used to have another site (forgot the name) that they mentioned on romancescam where you could scan the photo of your questionable guy/girl and it would find the match if there was one of that photo. Unfortunitely the site crashed and may be down permanently.

There are definitely a lot of red flags to look for, besides what has already been mentioned, is if someone calls me "Pretty, Dear or Queen", it is always a bad sign except "Dear" is sometimes used by normal men,lol.

If anyone knows other sites that help for free,I would appreciate knowing. I can say that if u get an email sent to ur regular address, check the IP address of the email, they are usually a dead giveaway to their location. Each computer has a code that is unique so it can be traced with some exceptions.

By the way Bepositive, thanks for the compliment about my writing skills, I appreciate the acknowledgement :) ttyl

White people from Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, whoever they tell they are - models or engineers, they are always 100% scam. No exceptions. There are NO model agencies for white women in Ghana. African scammers is the easiest case to detect. If a romancing you person, who claims he is from UK, US or Australia says, that he moves for a job to Nigeria, it is a RED FLAG.
If you think something is wrong or too good to be truth, it is probably your inner intuition talking to you. You can find scammer's actual face and a picture of an innocent person at romancescam webpage (scammers 4 real). To save my own energy and my time I just ignore messages from people who ask to move into private mailing territory (especially messengers) on their first message or try to find different excuses not to upload/send their pictures. To track IP is easy and highly recommended always when you start emailing privately.
I am new on this site, I don't think I feel very comfortable here mostly because I am a foreigner in the US and so far not a model. Is it a dating site where beauty (mostly physical) meets wealth, or there some other matching criteria working?...:)) You guys don't read each other profiles (which is normal! :), but because you don't, you miss a wonderful chance to see that these sugarcoated testimonials you get in your profiles, are from a limited number of women who only write them exceptionally to men who show big big numbers in their income... Sad.
They are not scammers. Do they have name? Do men who achieved so much in their lives (and it confirms they are brainy) like this type of (fake) attention from women?
Merry Christmas to all of YOU and let your dream to meet a lifetime partner on MM comes true!

I have definitely come across several scammers but this last Monday I was really surprised to see someone had hacked into my account on here.

There was a man's photo actually pending on MY profile!! I phoned this site and felt I was treated poorly at best. She immediately suspended my acct.. She gave me no time to copy my profile or remove my forum threads or anything.

I am starting from scratch on here today :(

Bepostive: I think we need to dedicate a FORUM/BLOG to expose these men and women that try to cheat us out of money, love, and just waste our time. I am on this site to truly find love and don't want to invest my precious time on someone who wants to take advantage.

I get 3-5 scammers a week.  I have gotten good at spotting them and report them to MM's Customer Service.  In defense of MM, they really do take care of these frauds after you report them.  They are pretty obvious from my viewpoint--one photo, younger, poor grammar and punctuation, obscure location, give their email immediately, and are often 20 years younger than I am.  If you make the mistake of not recognizing at first the next level is overly mushy emails, dead mother (father or both), traveling overseas, speak of romance, and the continud poor grammar and punctuation.  Anything beyond that point, they will be hitting you up for money, plane ticket, etc.  I'm at the "Yawn... oh another scammer" stage.  Every once in awhile I fail to catch them but I use Google Reverse Image or TinEye to reverse image their photo.  I also check out the on Pipl, Whoozy, or PeekYou.  You can generally flush them out that way.  Good luck.
