Scamming on dating sites who is nancy mckeon dating
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.
Don't let yourselves be tricked into thinking these con artists are sincere. They ask you to: I too have been talking to a man on face book messenger. This man is Col john Nicholson is asking for money for his daughter in Ghana. I'm sure this is a scam, his supposedly 15 yr daughter emailed me for money sent Beto her. Why would a highly decorated officer risk losing his retirement? He told me about his son"s birthday and I have to sent his son 2 i phones in Uk and i have to pay even Uk taxes to pay for his sons i phone . He told me his son who is in UK boarding school lost his phone and inhaler and need to get a new one. Talked to a guy from Facebook stating that he a general in the armed forces. Her dad can't get to funds because he is in Syria.
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. Stated wife died when stationed in SA and that his daughter is there in boarding school. Asked if i could send money to nanny sister as she was going there. Wow Says he was an orphan in the UK because his parents died, said he was raised by a priest. He says he is in Iraq, and he has no way to his money.
They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? When you say SA do you mean San Antonio or something else? I posed my questions in vernacular anyone originally from the US would understand. Led me from Facebook to Hangout Although his english was pretty good..could tell english was not his mother tongue. Please beware Wow your moms story sounds identical to mine, the only difference he told me he had no family his wife passed away in a car accident and had a son in boarding school in the UK . I picked up on what he was up too from the very beginning but I played along with him.
If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. Because this man states that he lives in houston but hasnt been home for a while. He, of course stumbled and said he didn't understand upon nearly each of my questions. Picture is of handsome soldier 47 ans looking fine. He would tell me how much he loved me and hoods God brought us together blah blah blah.
Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime. She's not sure if the man she is talking to is real... Her story is almost same as yours, she has sent him a lot of money already, mostly for his daughter who is going to boarding school in Africa (or something like that) she also sent her money for a birthday party. I never accept unknown requests but hit the wrong button by mistake.
