Don't become A Victim

You have taken the plunge and signed up on a dating site and everything you can possibly cross … finger, your toes, with hopes that Mr or Miss Right will gaze thru all of those ads - see you, make contact and you will live happily ever after. Maybe so.

But if whomever contacts you calls you babe, falls in love with you and is talking marriage in less than 30 minutes … more than likely it will end up being a scammer.

You men out there online, that beautiful woman you are gazing at … the picture was probably stolen and more than likely it is a male talking to you. Yes, I know they sound convincing, but they have had plenty of practice.

Soon, believe me some crisis will come up where they will need you to wire money to them and for some reason a video call can’t be done. They always always need a new phone. Will you buy one for them? Is usually their first question

Sometimes though, it can be much worse when the scammers are in the states. (From different countries looking for marriage) They work much quicker and can usually succeed because they have no problem looking you in the eyes and deceiving you. They know all of the right things to say. 

They are the most focused people I have ever dealt with and will do it for any sum of money or for marriage. Although, they were not successful, I do have some personal experience with them here.

They don’t care if it is your life savings.They don’t even mind stealing from children. They will take your last dime knowing it is for your children’s Christmas. They are online taking advantage of widows and widowers. Of seniors. Of people just like me and you.

People ask me why hunting them down is my hobby? Five years ago, I signed up for a dating site. Regretted doing so just because of the constant harassment.

I am a former skip tracer and decided to turn the tables. I report them to different websites where people can check. Occasionally, people will contact me that want a deeper investigation before they move forward.

For women here, let’s say the scammer is here in the states. You meet up and and he is quite charming and attentive.  Whether female or male, they appear to be everything you could hope for. You get married.

Everything starts out slow and small because they want you to hang around until they become legal. The men usually begin to pay less and less of the bills and before you know it you may be paying all of them or they may even quit their job and talk you into helping finance a business for them.


Cab drivers and truck drivers are the favorites.


Now that they have your credit card information or you have credit cards in both of your names, they start making a lot of online purchases and send those items back home to their family to sell. Knowing how important credit scores are to Americans, they make these purchases fast before you are even aware of them.


When you find out, the charm comes back with a promise they will stop and they are going to pay you back. So, they stall for about 90 days and then repeat the cycle for as long as they can.

For men, the woman will treat you like a king and they do everything for you. They are interested in every minute of your day and are very supportive in all that you do. You can do no wrong because you are the king.

Then her Father in Africa needs help. Probably is in the hospital and needs money to pay for the meds and money for food. Then the bill has to be paid, because they will not release him until it is paid. They will put him in prison if it is not and how can they ever forgive you if that should happen

Little by little, you start to become less important and your paycheck becomes the king. Their need for personal items starts to become expensive. They need expensive meds once a month because of cramps and 2 aspirins do not work. More money is needed for the family. They are no longer pleasant and complain endlessly.

In short, life becomes a nightmare. You do more than your best to make it work in both of the above examples. But coldly they are not interested. When you finally grow tired of the merry go round, you file for divorce. Then usually another stage of games begins.

Myself, I have not experienced the above. But I have listened  to these stories first hand and most of them did not end very pretty. Another one is still trying to get away.


Although successfully divorced 6 years ago her credit is completely ruined. She can no longer get into an apartment. She can’t replace the car that is on it’s last leg. Her family lives far away in another state and have no monies to help her. The house is probably going to be foreclosed on. She can no longer afford cable or even the internet. She is afraid to try to make him leave.

All of these people seemed to be very level headed and it is hard to believe they somehow ended up being used and abused by these people. It just shows that scammers can come into your life many different ways and they always seem to make a perfect landing right  into your life.


Love is blind

In conclusion, no matter what the circumstances are, when someone starts pushing and shoving you to hurry about the relationship and then starts dictating to you -  who you can see … friends or family … it is a warning sign and it may be the only warning sign that you get that something is not right.

It’s not going to get any better, in fact, right then is the best that it is ever going to be and it may be the last choice you get to make for a very long time.


Stop the relationship and walk away as fast as you can.


Thank you for stopping by!
