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 new , and 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. Some ask within weeks, others will wait a couple of months. Some who think you have a lot of money will groom you for six months to convince you that they "love you" before asking for money.
Remember, just because you tell the truth doesn't mean they do. This equally happened to me. I was conned by a certain dude named Mike Cruise Bedlam but I later blocked him and I'm off from him. Please be aware that a scammer who recently used the name of Scott James Moreau on Facebook and Google hangouts is on several scammer lists on the internet using the same photos.
He does use different names but he is the person in the photos. He speaks highly of his moral character and frequently quotes religious texts. He targets elderly women and soon convinces them he is in love with them and will marry them. He asks for iTunes cars, for smart phones and to create a banking in the victims names. He encourages the women to discuss private matters about themselves. He appears to have been scamming for over five years and is quite practiced in how to get his victims to believe him. I too have been scammed I think by the same guy. Says he is French. Supposedly went to Turkey to work on Government contract.
Is owed huge sum of money but they will not pay him until he pays the taxes on it first. This guy is quite good. Uses God as bait to get you to send money to him so he can eat as he has no money! I pray they catch him so he cannot take advantage of anyone else! Yes, says he works overseas. Needs to get money to pay parcel. Needed to get iTunes. Romance, sends. Romantic stuff. When people ask for iTunes cards its a scammer. Tell you him and his kids mother is not together but you he a lady in the background he say it his house keeper it might be his girlfriend or wife.
Its a scam he can never facetime you he is a scammer. Kathryn I believe this is the same guy who has been communicating with me. He is on a project in Turkey and an engineer. Short money to get home. As soon as he get the remaining 10, he will come back to the states. Wants to marry me. Asked for money to get bitcoin, then asked if I could open new because his bank is frozen because hacked, then asked if I could wire some money to help with the 10, owed so he can finally come home and marry me. Said he has a son and mom dying. He said he could not webcam or Skype because he could not from Turkey.
Cancelled flying to see me 3 times because of this project and the money he has to come up with. The photo looks young but his voice sounds like an older man in his 60's. Says he is French but sounds like he is Mexican. I met a man he says he is 54 engineer for Ships has a son is widowed. Always asks for the money in bitcoin! I have given this man so much money very good looking man with grey hair brown eyes.
No more how do I report this man?! Yes I have been conned by a gentleman stating he is on oil rig , wants to marry me, wife and son in car crash and killed has a 12 year old daughter elizabeth but cannot leave as bank frozen, wants me to pay to get him off the oil rig I found a woman named Shelley no last name tried to search her online by her cell phone she lives in New York but has a California cell she did ask for my address said she wanted to send me a ring I told her I wanted nothing from her she does know my birth date also and I told her I wanted nothing to be sent to me and so far so good but the other night she said she was sick and needed rest and I haven't heard from her since she said she had a friend taking care of her I just find it different she says she lives me and wants to be with me but I can't get her to talk to me on the phone but she says she wants to hear my voice I just find the whole thing strange I know she could forward my mail as she knows the address but there is nothing that comes to my mail box such as bank statements and I just paid my only credit card bill that is paid off every month I just find this strange.
I did report her on the dating site as a scammer but if she isn't a scammer then she doesn't need to go on the site anymore anyway if she has really found me. But some scammers also make video calls and are not real. I am not a scammer and mostly have not made any video calls. I think it is important that none of the partners ask for money, that is a good prerequisite for a relationship. I matched with someone name Johnson on Tinder. A Spanish and Indian mix he said. He had a video called.
He asked me gave him a gift for his birthday. A gold chain with our names. Anyway, I can't afford it. He got angry then blocked my . Hi, how did you get his real name? Calls himself Mack Jarden. He claims to be a pilot and is bald? Also claims to be Irish and very charming with an accent and very muscular. Says his name is Billy Bryan. Similar situation here! Goes by Greg David Muller. We all are wise women Please don't send him money!
If he thinks you have that kind of money, tell him you had to pay taxes or anything to appear that you are broke. Then block him on everything.
