Don’t send money to tide someone over after a mugging or robbery, and don’t do anyone a favor by making an online purchase or forwarding a package to another country.
Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims.
They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love.
Also, there are instances where website employees behaved like scammers as there were only a few women registered on the site.
So they create accounts of pretty girls themselves using pictures copied from anywhere on the internet.
You’re able to scroll through profiles of people near you on your smartphone and send them a flirty text copied from a Google search you just did, bypassing the effort and anxiety of thinking of what you would like to say to your match.
