The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable.
The most common comment of victims who think they have found the love of their life is "I can't believe I was so stupid!
They ask if their soul mate can re-ship them to Nigeria.
Or the alternative is to say their wallet has been stolen, hotel owner holding their passport, custom officials need to be bribed, new plane tickets are needed, they have been victimized and put in jail and need money to bribe their way out, or they need money for an operation etc.
They often pretend to be foreign specialists [from the US, UK or Canada, but can be any European country]temporarily working in Nigeria or other African country.
A slight twist is is when the scammer pretends to live in the same country as the victim, and once a relationship has developed, then advise they are required to go to a west African country on an assignment.
They prefer to use images of white people capitalising on stereotypes and perceptions.They also lurk in chat rooms and social networking sites as well as Christian and other religious-based dating sites.They then spend months chatting up and luring their naive targets with online intimacy.The reasons for needing the money will sound plausible.Regardless of the series of mishaps, the end result is the same - the cyber soul mate is asked to send money!Often the scammers use attractive female photo profiles because lots of men will respond to an attractive woman's personal ad based on the photo alone.They also tend to target middle-aged people looking for stable relationships.Some of the sophisticated scammers send cheap presents such as flowers or candy [from stolen credit cards] to capture the hearts of lonely women. 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.He claimed he was from Florida, a widower, have a 15-year-old daughter, working on a contract with United … Mcall Instagram Oil Rig Scam Gulf of Mexico So this guy requested to follow me on Instagram. Anyone know Thompson Lambert, pat Lambert, George lambert All the same man's picture on instagram.I usually do not accept strangers but he was kinda cute. When confronted one blocked me, one doesn't answer me and the other claims to be real but wanted to know information …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! After a few weeks the bank will advise the Money Orders are fraudulent and then the victim is responsible for paying the money back to the bank, and in some cases face charges of passing counterfeit instrument.Sometimes the scammer purchases goods with stolen credit cards but have trouble getting them delivered as many US merchants are now wary of shipping to Nigeria.The scammers choose chat rooms and dating sites because the person in love offers the chance of the biggest payoffs.
