One Small Difference At A Time

It started about five years ago when for some crazy reason I signed up on a dating site.  My advice is don’t do it if you are considering it, or at least read up on it before you do.

Now, I know that there are some wonderful stories out there where people have met and things worked out well for them. But it was a headache for me on day one and I regretted doing it before the sun went down that very same day.

But about six months later, after being hounded by both male and females, I decided to turn the tables on them and use my experience as a Skip Tracer. It has since then turned into a part time hobby for me.

The first thing I found out was that at the time on the rankings of countries having the most scams were a bit surprising. All you ever heard about, and still, is Africa, especially Nigeria. But China had first place, USA was in 5th place and Nigeria? It was ranked number seventeen. What a surprise.

When a scammer contacts me, I spin their heads and get information. Once I determine that yes they are indeed a scammer, I then report them to various websites. People can then check these websites to see if they are listed … usually be their email address.

There are other ways and many that are not listed here. Such as email headers to get their IPS address to get a location. You can run their pictures through Google to see if used by scammers for dating sites. Unfortunately, most are pictures that have been stolen from innocent people.

I had one contact me who claimed to be an officer in the Army, but doing research I found he was using a picture of the Prime Minister of Romania for his picture.

Another claimed to be a 35 year old woman, when in a reality it was an 11 year old boy living in Accra, Ghana. He was very good at it.

The boy and I became good friends after I found out the truth. I have since shown him how he can make a better way of living honestly and he and his Mother sell products to various businesses in the Accra area. They make enough to pay for school needs and now can eat seven days a week. No, it is not perfect for them, but life is improving.

Now, how do I know it is not another scam? It is the way he talks and the questions that he asks. He sends me time stamped pictures of him and his siblings. I will send him something for his birthday. We have been talking now for 2 years and he has a sister here in the states. I hope to help bring him here  before he starts high school.

Micky is not my legal name, it is a nickname. The scammer using the picture above stole my legal name to open a Facebook account. To this day, although no longer active, I cannot get the account closed.

You hear about how the scammers are making thousands of dollars daily. There are some that do. But, most are just living day to day and go to bed hungry at night. They have no education on how to improve themselves. There are some countries that does not encourage a better way of thinking or living for their people.

The majority of scams end up in a bad way. Some have lost their life savings to professional scammers. But laws are changing and their days may be numbered. It’s yet another way Smartphones are changing the world.

As Smartphones become more affordable and the internet becomes more accessible to those living in these countries, the Scammers may soon one day figure out that there is an easier and much better way to earn a living.

** Warning ** I do not recommend communicating with a scammer. It is best to cut off all communications as soon as you realize that you are being scammed.


Thank you for stopping by!
