A majority of the scammers are claiming to be from Australia or the United States, but there are others who are claiming to be from other western countries.
Once the scammer has gained your trust, they will directly or subtly ask for gifts, credit or banking card details or money.
They usually create profiles that are fake so they can lure their victims in.
They often use fictional names or they sometimes obtain information from other people, including professionals, aid workers, or the military personnel.
Surprisingly, in some cases, even when the victim realizes they are being conned, the scam continues because the victim is too embarrassed to tell family and friends or report to law enforcement agencies.
Fortunately, due to the innovation of our world today, more and more people are checking the internet for almost everything including love.
They all begin with some ‘hook.’ Often, the scammer (the would-be suitor) will make contact and use something in common or a common interest, for instance, religion or profession, to spark a romantic relationship.
The relationship usually ramps up very quickly afterward.
As the online relationship gets deeper, the victim is eventually asked for large sums of money.
Some are even asked to carry out illegal activities, and they may go ahead and do them willingly either because they are in love or because they’re being threatened.
