Dating nigerians online Chat foreign cam sex
The scammers spend their day trolling the dating sites and chat rooms for contact emails, and then send off thousands of fraudulent letters and emails awaiting the victim's replies.They are offering the chance of finding true love and happiness, and there are plenty of takers!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.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.They also tend to target middle-aged people looking for stable relationships.The rationale is that this type of person is likely to be more desperate, gullible and financially stable.They then spend months chatting up and luring their naive targets with online intimacy.
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.
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.
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!
