Fabio 59 scammer username on dating site
The lesson here is that online dating startups will need to step up their game to keep consumers safe.
He or she will begin the courtship process by sending letters and love poems for a period of weeks and finally offer to fly to meet their victim.
They use psychological tricks to lure their victims in, use poetry and even gifts to get them under their spell, and then once you are there, will try to reach for your wallet, all the time declaring their "undying love" for you.
The scam may take the form of asking you to cash a check for them through your bank account because they are "out of the country" and unable to cash it themselves, or they may come right out and ask you to send money to help them out of a fabricated "financial difficulty" they claim to be experiencing.
It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.
Instead of sending spam letters that promise millions for your assistance, these scammers are targeting single men and women who are searching for love online.
