The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) is warning online sellers of a scam that involves Gumtree, Pay Pal, Western Union and the City of London Police.
In one report received by the NFIB through Action Fraud, a woman was almost defrauded after advertising her bed for sale on Gumtree.
In addition to Match.com, there is e Harmony, Facebook and countless other ways to connect and meet people online.
Scammers are often detected within 1-2 days after registration and they get deleted. If a woman wrote to you as it was written on the dating site from your country, but later she appears to be from Russia, Ukraine, Nigeria then yes, it is a scam.
Yes, “women” can have different explanations why they registered from another country, but mostly those are excuses.
Russian dating sites are very popular and while many men have met genuine, loving Russian women, unfortunately sometimes one encounters scammers as well.
There are many variations of online dating scams originating in Russia and Eastern Europe but they have in common a high emotional and financial cost to unsuspecting scam victims.
Typically, a man comes into contact with a scammer through an online dating agency.
The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.
Unfortunately, since 2005 the legislation on placing private information in Internet has changed significantly, so in 2015 we took a decision to close this website not to breach legislation of some countries important for us.
Yes, since February 24, 2015 Scammer is closing, but we will continue working in the sphere of safe Internet dating.
Since 2005 we had a list of women at this website who are swindling men out of money via Internet. We had hundreds of individual women as well as dozens of criminal groups which were working in different cities of Russia, Ukraine and Nigeria.
We helped thousands of men having saved more than 10 million euros for them.
Her monthly salary is only a few hundred dollars, all Russian men are drunks and maybe her family died in a tragic accident or they are ill and in need of surgery.
