Dating scam scenarios

Rated 4.61/5 based on 969 customer reviews

The scammer will usually spot a victim on a dating website and get in contact with her.

Soon he will run out of money, and he needs to be sent more.

Much like the Travel scenario, the scammer builds up a connection with the victim.

He continues until he feels the victim is ready for the scam: he says that a relative is direly ill, and that it appears that the person will die unless he/she gets aid soon.

He sends out the money order to the victim, and tells her to add it to her account.

In the mean time, while this money order is coming, he wants her to enter money into his account using Western Union.
