Millionaire Match seems to be a site where ex-convicts, players and scammers tell you stories that do not add up.
I have come across those who send me email addresses and ask for mine. They can't tell you what they really do but come up with Fake sad (that seem real) stories (very sick!). I have Googled some of them and found them on other dating sites even though they told me this is their first site (they use different names on different sites).
Google their names
Google their username
Google their email address or phone numbers
They tells lies such as someone in their family is sick and they need to raise funds. They will tell you they are stuck in a country and need to raise funds to get back home. It's a scam...Don't fall for it.
If they can't meet up with you, they are not real. If they meet up, make sure you meet publicly. Don't fall for the antics. Some of them rent fancy places and cars as a show off and to package themselves nicely. Let them Skype or Facetime you as much as possible and observe the background when they do.
Publicly shame them to save other people from falling into these traps.
Let them respect those of us working hard to earn our income and looking for real love!
Oh Sophia your story really touches my heart. I can tell by the tone of your post you’ve been hurt. Things will get better for you. You just need a real man that can spark the flame of interest, that leads to burning passion.
Thats really sad. I honestly thought this site was safe from scammers. Why people don't choose to be honest is beyound me.
... and one must display an amount of personal responsibility in keeping themselves safe.
I am inquisitive by nature and tend to ask a lot of questions. However, I'm not intrusive and realize that if someone seems to always avoid the simple answerable questions I ask... my conversations will quickly fade. Many peeps do not need to be so tight lipped or act so CIA-security clearanced- if you get my drift. lol
I don't give out my email address. Cell phones can communicate anything they need to say.
If they live far away and want to meet me then I tell them, "Great, email here when you are in my town". And then I leave the conversation because I'm not interested in an email buddy. I don't exchange more than a few emails (here only) and we either meet or I end it. If someone is serious about finding love then they will meet someone they say they have an interest in. If they say they are too busy with work to meet within a week, then they are too busy for a relationship and I again am not interested.
Discussing money is taboo for any situation that is not family or a close friend, so the moment a man mentions money in any form I end the conversation.
Most scammers will out themselves pretty quickly because they ask probing and often inappropriate questions for someone who hasn't met you face to face. If in doubt....end it anyway because your gut is probably right.
I have had a customer fall a victim and the guy didn't seem fake at all. They were supposed to meet but she figured out he was a scammer. She gave a fake address only to read online that the fake address was vandalized and she believes it was done by the scammer who she had told that she knew he was planning to scam her.
Don't give these scammers your phone number or address. Let them chat with you on the site. Most of them now pay the premium membership on dating sites.
Scammers are generally not very smart, they play on emotional weakness and stupidy, notice I said emotional and not intellectual. Scammers will always ask for an email address, it is easier for them to build a relationship without having to phone or video chat where they can easily be found out. It is quite simple, you have to do your due diligence and if something doesn't seem right then it probably isn't, don't be afraid to ask challenging questions and if necessary, for evidence to back it up.
Wow, you hit the nail on the head, those antics are classic scam tactics, it is good to see you are here sharing your experiences to help others not fall into the pit falls from a minority of those who choose to play these games on others.
All the best and trust it will work out in the long run for you and other woman & men here searching for companionship Sophia97
