Dating website photo scam
Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year hoping to find a companion or even a soulmate.But as Valentine’s Day gets closer, the FBI wants to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams..They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? When you say SA do you mean San Antonio or something else? I posed my questions in vernacular anyone originally from the US would understand. Led me from Facebook to Hangout Although his english was pretty good..could tell english was not his mother tongue. Please beware I been dating a man on facebook and we star talk on facebook and he ask me out and we star talk in hangout then he ask me of i could send him money i say yes i will so i send him money though Western union then he ask some more so i dd but this was brfore i knew he was on mititary scammers so i stop send him money 2month ago of jan 2017 and i was send him money from 2015 i take off my hangout and i delelate him off everything i have not text him over 1 month it hurt me alot but i get over him Wow your moms story sounds identical to mine, the only difference he told me he had no family his wife passed away in a car accident and had a son in boarding school in the UK . I picked up on what he was up too from the very beginning but I played along with him.If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. Because this man states that he lives in houston but hasnt been home for a while. He, of course stumbled and said he didn't understand upon nearly each of my questions. Picture is of handsome soldier 47 ans looking fine. He would tell me how much he loved me and hoods God brought us together blah blah blah.The pictures you were sent were most likely phony lifted from other websites.The profiles were fake as well, carefully crafted to match your interests.For weeks, even months, you may chat back and forth with one another, forming a connection. But ultimately, it’s going to happen—your new-found “friend” is going to ask you for money.So you send money..rest assured the requests won’t stop there.
the photo looks like it is from a magazine or the description the person has given of themselves doesn't match the photo)...Maybe she's moving a little fast or maybe your gut is just telling you something doesn't feel right.
