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. Similar story about antiques dealer, out of the country for 3 weeks, told me she relocated to the U. She has not asked me for anything but everything about her is totally off. Dedicate scammer. I stopped talking to her today when I found this post here on this website.
I am a lesbian and met Rosa Hall on zoosk dating site!! She immediate blocked me on her profile and ask to start ing her. She is antique dealer who just moved to USA 5 months ago She had to go to Cyprus for 3 weeks for some antiques and gold bars.
She sent me flowers to my home and made me think Its the real deal!!! Every time I say that I'm not comfortable sending u money without meeting u she gets extremely upset!! Honestly I was on way to bank to due money transfer but I just found this online She gave me the name and of Jaime David ibarra who is a criminal and has ten different alaises This is the guy with gold bars?? But the is for Virginia I'm so upset with myself for being this stupid!! I'm very intelligent woman and knew from the start this was all to strange.
She shared her fb profile with no friends on there and i looked her up on linkin she had profile there We've been talking via Google hangouts for 2 weeks now Sooner I get her money sooner she comes to see me. Thank u so much for starting this .
I have the money but I work extremely hard just to give it away to a scammer!! Can I do something about this?? Obviously she must be doing ok with it to keep doing it? What about the people that actually do give her money and don't say anything She's waiting right now for me to send it: in very upset about this and want justice for other woman she is ripping off!! She almost got me too!! I met her on Zoosk as well. As we ed and talked on hangouts, the wording of her sentences was not right and she would forget things she said about herself and tell me something else.
I was onto her simply with that. The first time she asked me for money I said no I have bills to pay and my family needs a little help. She was annoyed but played it cool. I copied and saved the post. The next she asked me for money, I said no She disappeared fast. Not wit a scammer who wants your money.
She must have decided to throw people off by adding the Angel at the beginning.
But every other detail about her is exactly the same or similar. This time though she said she was raised in New Zealand, bounced around the world living in various places, lost her fiance of 5 years, and had just moved to Canada a few months ago. She is an antiques dealer currently in Benin collecting statues for several weeks. We communicated for over a month and we were making plans to meet when I came across these posts about her.
She never asked me for anything, but upon reading about her on here I quickly let her know I was on to her. Just wanted to provide an update in case someone encounters this person using her new name. Did anyone have chatted with this guy on Messenger? Hello I meet my own george 2 years ago. Called rod hobbs Stole my Husband picture to scam women on website s.
I've been talking to this girl. She said she's coming here but wants me to accept a shipment but I need to send to this shipping company thirdeye insurance in Africa for tariff tax fee in order to accept the package. My mom is being scammed with a guy who like everyone else can't meet up and all the other random excuses.
He hasn't asked for money yet but he did have a car shipped to her home for someone else a buddy of his to come pick up when he returns from China, working as an engineer like every other scam artist. Has anyone had this happen to them? I know he could be using her for stolen items etc. I'm also concerned because I don't know who this guy is that's picking up the car. I met someone online who sounds like he is from Nigeria or somewhere like that but claims to be German. He goes by Stefan Ferdinard or Ferdinand. He has proclaimed his loved for me and wants to me hold some packages for him that contains millions of dollars and gold.
That sounds like a scam. If you send your money, you're probably going to lose it, and you won't get anything back. For some reason I am a beacon for these low lifes. Most claim to be in the military and it amazes me how low they can stoop. They look for someone to open a banksend them money and lately they want Itune gift cards or bitcoins. Thankfully I can tell the s right away. If they can't cam leave them.
For some strange reason their laptop doesn't have a working cam nor their phones. That is a big red flag. Be safe people and don't send them your hard earned money. Well its not me being scammed its my idiot husband who put a comment on Ashley Campbell's FB then he got a friend request and accepted, conversed back and forth for a few days before them asking for his phone to keep it more Awesome guy for friends seeking just chat at first maybe more later.
He gave his and the 10, is texts began along with a romantic online affair. After a couple of weeks the requests for money started. They said they had a very large some of money that they put aside in a case and sent off for safe keeping so she could get away from her family and start a new life. All he had to do was send a holding fee for her to a certain person and they would send him the case by courier then he could send a portion of the money to them for a plane ticket and she would come and retrieve it from him and they could start their new life together.
He would also be compensated double of what he sent. Then the case needed to have a security fee clearance, now a courier fee. I can't make him understand its not a celebrity but a scammer. Oh and here's the best part, he's never spoken live on the phone only via texts. I said tell them to call or Skype to prove who it is, and they said she couldn't sgevwas being watched and would get caught. How can anyone fall for this stuff I don't get it. And now our life together is over I can never trust him again 40 years down the drain just because some older man thinks a woman half his age is interested in him.
Any suggestions on how to make him understand hell never see a penny of that money back? You could tell him about people who get caught up working as "money mules" for criminals. Sometimes when criminals want to send stolen money, they get someone else to do the dirty work. They develop an online relationships and ask their new sweetheart or friend to accept money or transfer funds for them.
If he gets involved with one of these schemes, he could lose money and personal information, and get into legal trouble. The FTC says these are warning s that you're talking to a scammer:. You could talk about prize scams too, and the warning that you shouldn't send money to get money, no matter what story someone tells you. Anyone have contact with a man by name of James Stupplebeen?
Says he is an engineer on a job in Lagos. Living in states but works international jobs. Has an estranged girlfriend and daughter too. He told me his wallet was stolen and needed money. Then he said his equipment broke down and needs several thousand to fix it.Awesome guy for friends seeking just chat at first maybe more later
