And while everyone is at risk, seniors can be a major target.
It seems that you only need to pick up the newspaper or watch the news to hear about the latest financial scam and it’s something that has become an unwelcome part of modern life.
Please dont worry much about pictures or profiles, hence on the net everything can be copied and modifiedprobably the scammers did use already our profile and information if they did found it pretty interesting or attractive. They put up pretty pictures, nice profiles, get your attention, gain your trust, then need your "help". 3) they give you their email or, yahoo, i D in the first 1-2 messages and want.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. None have a good command of English and when I gave one a polite refusal I had a very rude response! Number 1 give away to these people, along with the broken English, is the "I love you" within 2 minutes and that damn BUZZ yahoo messenger has. Or, a woman who is being held against her will in a hotel because she was robbed and needs you to send money to the hotel manager, who also took her passport.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... All want the money sent to some guy in Lagos, Nigeria via Western Union. The scam involving millions that can only be taken out of the country by a foriegn partner (you).
I cannot image anything worse then feeling like a total fool for trusting someone with your heart and then to make it worse losing thousands of dollars in the process. Please share this scam with people you know and warn them.
I get email everyday by people who have lost money and hope because of these scammers.
