Macon GA dating scams on the internet
Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel.
They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? The scammers transfer stolen money into the newand then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.
Here are some warning s that an online love interest might be a fake. They ask you to:.
Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at ftc.
In all these posts you all seem to believe the name matters. It doesn't.
Since they are fake names, they make them up as they go along. The stories are all so similar. Oil rig. One child. Always overseas somewhere. Start calling you dear immediately. Poor English. Practically order you to go to Hangout or Whats App. Profess their love and affection immediately. I met a guy on tinder recently but I think he is a scammer.
We started talking off the site. He claims that he is a geologist in Cyprus on a work asment.

He has a son in New York and he is widowed. He son needs playstation 4 giftcards and he cant get them overseas.
His son is currently staying with his mon in New York who is older. He wants me to get the cards and give him the codes. His name is Floyd Christopher Knights. His son's name is Owen has anyone got scammed by him before? Hey everyone. I was scammed by someone named Ye Joon on facebook. A gym owner from Seoul, Korea. Very handsome.
He told me to use hangouts. He asked me for an iTunes card to fix his phone camera or something like that.
Never gave him money. Blocked him on facebook and uninstalled my hangouts. Did anyone else here met this guy? He says he's an Air Force Sergeant who's on a peacekeeping mission in Oman, his mission finishes in April sometimes and he wants to come here to buy a house in my country with his two kids. Met a guy on-line, told me he was working on an oil rig, was widowed with one daughter. His name was David Ford and he was Dutch and spoke with an accent.
Kept saying we would meet when his contract was up and how much he loved me. But then the excuses started. Then he asked me to check his bank balance to make sure he got paid. Now what kind of person asks a total stranger to check their bank ?
It may have a website, but anyone can create a web and pretend to be anything. These scammers are sophisticated and will stop at nothing. Be careful. Mine is a David Mine leaves Monday for an oil right off TX. He is an oil rig engineer. Has anyone heard of a Veronica allhouse, claims to be an American living in ottawa canada, working for the Red Cross, I have caught her in a couple of lies to do with photos, supposedly taken then and there. All her other photos seem legit as they are actually taken in the red cross offices,I have actually rung the red cross in Canada, but couldn't get passed the answering machine.
I know a visa costs a great deal more than that, when I asked her about it she said she can come up with the rest herself. I am head over heals for this woman and I just don't know what to do. Offer to pay the company where she is getting her Visa directly, in fact, insist on it.
My family is certain a member has been scammed and convinced to make financial transactions on behalf of her online love interest. She has been confronted by her sons but she is in deep denial that this person s is not who they claim to be. Should we as her family report with the limited identifying information we have? Any one know a Philip Scalar?

He has a son in Brighton on a bording school. Till now he didn't ask money from me. When he is asking I will block him as at least 20 other scammer before. Foots from him I found out with google search are on other platforms with Alex Scalar. I only was the first time so stupid, to send money to someone who was calling Lukas Hans and told me, that he was a doctor from San Francisco. He was working for WHO in Brazil.
All contact requests I got from Linkedin. Mostly they are drilling specialists or doctors in Afghanistan or Syria. My sister has been scammed by a Texas millionaire with 2 sick kids.
