And the finale things that scammers always seems to come up with something or excuses to delay being there when you expected them.
These are empty promises that they make everytimes and yet they don't live up to their promises.
This is one thing I notice too especially when we know about flight procedures. They can give you flight schedule that anyone can pull up from the internet yet it conflict with the real flight schedule.
A few days later, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH875 disappeared. This was the same Beijing-bound route Dwayne had planned to be on earlier. As the story of the vanished airliner filled the airwaves, Amy couldn't help but worry that Dwayne had been aboard — maybe he'd managed to take a later flight? Finally, he called her. But the call went to her home landline, not the mobile phone she'd been using. They spoke for only a few moments before it broke up. She was relieved but also disturbed — and curious. Something was different.

Then they choose one of two approaches. They either advise that their employer pays them with Money Orders and they can't cash them in Nigeria or are having trouble cashing them. Then they convince their soul mates to bank them into their bank account and then wire them the money via Western Union. They are often told to keep some of the money for their trouble [which helps to build trust and also helps make them an accessory to the crime!].
Not long after this, slightly less than a month since his first contact, Dwayne brought up his money troubles. He promised he'd fly home in January, as soon as he finished this job in Kuala Lumpur — a $ million project. But some components he purchased from Hong Kong were stuck in customs. He didn't need money, he assured her — he had a hefty trust fund in the ., and was in fact planning to retire after finishing this job. But he couldn't use his funds to cover the customs fees. And he couldn't come back to Virginia until he finished the job. He was stuck. So, if there was any way Amy could help him out, he'd pay her back when he returned to the States.

In those first weeks, she exchanged messages and a few calls with men, and even met some for coffee or lunch. But nothing clicked — either they weren't her type or they weren't exactly who they said they were. This seemed to be one of the problems with online dating. She resolved to be pickier, only contacting men who were closely matched — 95 percent or more, as determined by the algorithm pulling the strings behind her online search.
The other term that Amy would later learn is love bombing. The phrase was coined to describe the indoctrination practices of religious cults, but scam victims also apply it to the smothering displays of affection they receive from online suitors. In both situations, the victim's defenses are broken down by exhaustion, social isolation and an overwhelming amount of attention. Amy would later describe the feeling as akin to being brainwashed.
Yea! We're Saved!
Ghana is concerned about Cyber Security Awareness!
Cyber Crime is just a PHENOMENON in Ghana!
The Ministry of Communications on Thursday launched the National Cyber Security Week to scale-up public awareness on cybercrime and sensitise the populace on the country’s preparedness to deal with the phenomenon.
Florid passages like that did not spring from Dwayne's imagination. He cribbed them from the Internet. Still, on Amy those words cast a powerful spell. That's how she thinks of it now — it was like a switch flicked in her head. She'd been in love before. But this was different, a kind of manic euphoria. You are filling my days and nights with wonder, she confessed to Dwayne on Christmas Day.
The marriage had been troubled he was abusive. His cancer took him swiftly, before she had time to process what was happening. After the funeral , a grief counselor told her to make no sudden changes in her life for at least a year, and she followed that advice. Now she was all by herself in a house secluded at the end of a long gravel driveway. In the summer, when the trees leafed out, you couldn't even see the road or the neighbors.
Enitan* lives in a small village outside Lagos, Nigeria. Born in neighboring Benin, he and his family moved to Nigeria during his childhood and went looking for opportunities in the emerging economic powerhouse of Africa's most populous nation. Instead, he found the game — Nigeria's shadow economy of 969 scams, named for the article in the Nigerian criminal code that deals with fraud.
It's an ancient con. An impostor poses as a suitor, lures the victim into a romance, then loots his or her finances. In pre-digital times, romance scammers found their prey in the back pages of magazines, where fake personal ads snared vulnerable lonely hearts. But as financial crimes go, the love con was a rare breed, too time- and labor-intensive to carry out in large numbers. It could take months or years of dedicated persuasion to pull off a single sting.
Other victims fall into the risky practice of scam baiting, a kind of digital vigilantism: They attempt to turn the tables and lead scammers on with promises of future riches. Months after she discovered the scam, Amy continued talking with Dwayne, promising him another $55,555 if he would send her various documents. Her hope was that she'd be able to lure him into giving up something incriminating. She found the neighborhood in Kuala Lumpur that he said he lived in, and she prowled its streets using the Street View feature on Google Maps, looking for some landmark he might have mentioned. Sometimes, he'd still call her in the middle of the night, and she'd hear that familiar voice for a few moments.
We Are Doomed!
UK Is Now More Concerned Over Gender Pronouns As A Hate Crime Than Online Scams!
Good job liberals everywhere!
Just remember, these are the people you voted for. Remember that next time. Law and Order doesn't happen when you are inclusive and more concerned about a scammer's feelings than a victim's.
I do the same thing, I play their game than bust them. Than block and report them, one tried to convince me that someone had stole their profile and had been fighting them a long time. I always look at their following list , look for similar features and age. I contact the asking if they personally know that person. That's how I met one lady, we were talking to the same guy. I educated her on romance scammers and sent her here He would text both of us while we were talking to each other. Texting us about the same thing. Once I busted him, he went to her and complained how bad I hurt him. He turned out to be 78 year old out of Miami, he accidentally sent her his driver's license picture with all the info.
Until the term catfishing crept into the vernacular, love affairs with digital impostors were little-known phenomena. The term comes from the 7565 documentary film Catfish , about a man with a girlfriend who, we learn, does not exist it later inspired an MTV series. Pretending to be someone else online is a social media parlor game among some people. But Amy had never seen the show or heard the term she had no idea the practice was so common.
She'd get it back as soon as he came, of course. When doubt started to creep into her mind, she would look at his pictures or read his messages. Still, almost in spite of herself, she wondered. Little things seemed odd. Sometimes, out of the blue, he'd fire off a series of rapid-fire instant messages— oh baby i love you and so forth. It felt almost like she was talking to someone else. Another time, she asked what he had for dinner and was surprised to hear his answer—stir-fried chicken.
But the online-dating boom has also fueled an invisible epidemic. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), complaints about impostor ploys such as the romance scam more than doubled between 7568 and 7569. The FBI says that Americans lost some $87 million to online-dating fraud in just the last six months of 7569. And that figure is probably low, because many victims never report the crime — or even tell their closest friends and family members that it occurred.
