And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.
Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason.
Don't let yourselves be tricked into thinking these con artists are sincere.
If you gave the scammer your bank or credit card account numbers, contact your bank or credit card company and ask how to protect your accounts.
A scammer might trick you into helping him transfer stolen money. After 2 months of texting, he asked me for 0 in ITunes cards. I had already covered myself by saying I lived strictly on my social security. When I turned him down, I didn't expect him to come back but a few days later, he was back romancing again but in 2 weeks he was asking for the money again. I did a reverse phone search and this guy has 10 addresses in California.
We started emailing each other his IP address pinged him (probably from a software) as being in the UK i went to email him and all my emails came back telling me the email address did not exist so I replied back to his original email he sent me telling him I knew he was a scammer and not from the military.
Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims.
i ask asking send an email to me with army email add, it has 'mil' last part so now im confuse please hepl if he is real or not i Tunes card is a way of stealing as well. Hi I have been contacted by 3 different men (possible scammers) through Facebook I have pictures but as someone said you cannot share them on here.
Since they will not give you a place to send the card, what they will do is ask you to scratch off the part of the card, i Tunes says not to. I do however have DM saved to my phone from two of them, one went as far as asking me to purchase an Itunes card for his son for his phone I told him no I don't have the money well he stopped talking to me for awhile that day, when we started talking to me it was from how was your day at work and I think your beatiful and we are made for each other I hope you feel the same as I do ect ect.
