There is a Scam that ALL of YOU have missed which exist on this Dating Website and every other Dating Website that you will ever log into.
PEOPLE WHO HATE, FOR WHAT EVER REASON !!
Do scammers exist ? ABSOLUTELY. Do con artist exist ? ABSOLUTELY. Does that mean that everyone that you come in contact with is a scammer or a con artist ? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
LETS START WITH THE SCAMMER WHO DOESN'T WANT YOU TO MEET ANYONE, BECAUSE OVER TIME THEY'VE DISCOVERED THAT MEN/WOMEN DON'T FIND THEM ATTRACTIVE OR DESIRABLE FOR WHATEVER REASON.
This scammer will tell you to protect yourself from the scammers by doing some ridiculous thing like having you tell a stranger that you just met hold up a newspaper with todays date on it. To prove that they are where they say they are. Then they claim that this is a good idea because the scammer is not usually where they say they are, so they can't do this, or if they refuse to do this then they have I.D. themselves as a scammer.
Excuse me, BUT, every Major City in the world has an on line newspaper or a newspaper stand with newspapers from around the world. At either of these places a copy of todays newspaper can be obtained. So me holding a copy of todays newspaper from some city/country doesn't put me there, now does it ? Might such a tactic scare away a scammer, maybe. Might such a tactic scare away everyone who is not a scammer also, maybe. You never thought about that did you ?
I had a man respond to one of my post saying quote" please, please all you wonderful women do not post how wealthy you are on your profile. It is a flashing red light to scammers from the 3rd world to try & get money from you " end quote. The third world that he is referring to consist mainly of Africa, Latin America and Asia. Might our friends real purpose be to instill FEAR in you about people of other races, so that you won't date them? Raise your hand if you think there are no AMERICAN scammers, some are dare I say it Caucasian Americas no less. Yet almost every post about scamming posted on this site is about blacks, or third world people. Could this just be a Co-inky-dink (coincidence, wink), or SOME OTHER REASON (wink).
Another gentleman wants to warn you about the AFRICAN SCAM, seems he was dating a female, she was a consultant who went to (you guess it, smile) AFRICA on a job assignment. Right away he smelled something fishy (me to him, smile). He talked to her a few times from Africa, she gave him her phone number in Africa, he states he was smart he Goggled the phone number she gave him, and he got a camera shop. Which let him know she was OMG a scammer. Well unfortunately for our friend I'm smart also. So I'll tell you something about goggling phone numbers. Goggles phone number database is basically what's know as a cross directory ( you give them a phone number, they give you the owners name and address). Well if our friend did what he claimed then his story can't be true !! Why not knowitall ? Glad you asked know-ites it means you're getting it. Because you can't Goggle an international phone number, or a cell phone number ( an international phone number would be a phone number listed in another country like Oh I don't know say like Africa, Latin America, or Asia ). You know what they say about lying, if you're lying about one part of your story, you could be lying about all of the other parts of your story as well.
Wait a minute know-ites, we may be on to something. You know the Caucasian population is shrinking here in the United States, well maybe it's caused by all of the Caucasians ( according to our posters on here, they're going to Africa) and getting scammed by third world people.
When I first came on to this site No one was using the Forum to post. It just set there like a dead fish, for days . I notice that it was all old post from 2005 or so. How could this be. It's an old Scammers trick. You see, its possible to take over a website. Here's how it works. When someone post a new post, all you need to do is pile all of the old post on top of it, this will push the new post off of the front page, giving the appearance that no one has posted anything here in years.
Here's another scammers trick on websites: This one is called taking a post off track, (scammers love this one, they sit in their parents basement and giggle all day when they do this, smile). Ok here it is !! Let's say you make a Post called, Do you love your kitten?. Immediately someone comments something like " Hey Helen remember when they dropped the bomb in Hiroshima, man that kill a lot of people. Helen responds to his comment. Then another one of their nutty friends make a comment. And they keep this up until everyone stops posting on your post. Don't take my word for it, look for it in some of the old post. Doesn't that sound like fun.
Why would anyone do this ? Good question: You know what a cyber bully is. Well there are some on every site. This is the sort of nonsense that they do. Some of them after being on a website for a time bond with some other people of a like mind ( or absents of a mind, smile) and actually feel that this is their website, that they own it, because they've been here for a long time.
You know that stalker, that you see on T.V. news being dragged away from some woman's house yelling she's mine, if I can't have her no else will. Now put that same personality on a dating website. After being rejected over and over, and always being told by women that he ask out, no thank you let's just be friends. Some of those people conclude, if no one wants me, then I'll make sure no one else can meet anyone either. And that's the personality who starts to do the things that I mentioned above.
WAIT A MINUTE KNOWITALL !! I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT MOST OF THE SCAMMER COME FROM THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES, AND THIRD WORLD PEOPLE.
You know why there are so many dating websites ? Because having a dating website is a good business idea. So when one person saw another person being successful at it they started one to.
Well scammers are in the business of scamming other people. So when a good scam comes along they all start doing it, regardless of race, or country. The reason why it seems that so many of these people are Third World People is because inside the United States taking money from people by illegal means is called Fraud you could get jail time. In many Third World Countries there are no such laws, or there are not enough police to enforce them, or you could just pay the police, or government officials off. So scammers rent offices or post office boxes in those countries to avoid legal problems. So you see these are not necessarily third world people scamming you, just people claiming to be third world people. They may ,or may not even be in that Country.
So everyone calm down, and enjoy the website. Using these guild lines. Your real name may be Helen, but I don't know that, and even if I did, I can't harm you by knowing your first name, because your user name on here is raskinfraskinfpropoless. Which makes you anonymo
