Unsuspecting Women and Male Scammers – How Not to Be Scammed
Dating websites are popular today and lots of people have been able to meet and begin legitimate relationships from cyberspace. Surveys are showing that about one third of people living in the Unites States who married between 2005 and 2014 met on the web. In total, online dating is valued to be more than $4 billion worldwide. However, online dating scams were reported to have risen by over 27 percent in England alone in 2013 between the months of January and July, with 229,000 fraud cases reported.
Apart from losing membership fee paid monthly on a dating site, people are losing money, especially women such as a Canadian woman who lost over $42,000 to an email dating scam. In total, about $17 million were lost by Canadians alone. The worst thing in all this is every woman is a potential target; it does not affect one single dating site only but all of them, particularly those that are popular on the internet.
It is quite hard to know a scammer right from the onset because at the beginning, they have really attractive profiles that draw lots of women looking for a potential relationship. However, even pinning one scammer down is not easy as they always change photos, names, email addresses, phone numbers, and locations among other particulars. After ensuring they have an attractive profile that lures lots of unsuspecting women, these male scammers engage in grooming processes that usually last for a number of weeks, years or months until they have earned complete trust.
At first, male scammers do all they can to earn the trust of their female victims. However, after some time, they begin running into some serious supposed difficulties such as unpaid bills, visa issues or sick relatives and actually extol money from kind women who are into these male fraudsters they have come to believe. In fact, some UK women in Hampshire’s Basingstoke were scammed by a man who claimed to be living in the area and told the women about the huge inheritance awaiting him in South Africa and the fact they he required money to unlock the inheritance. Once the women gave him the money, he disappeared from their lives online forever. In short, lots of women learn after weeks, months and years of talking to an honest looking and sounding man they have been talking with a scammer, who takes his time before asking for money-his chief reason of engaging in online dating.
Scam letters and emails
It is however clear lots of male scammers today use prewritten email and letter sets repeatedly to target different women at the same time. These scammers send scam emails and letters in their hundreds and in so doing they catch unsuspecting women in their criminal nets. This means that well written wonderful letters, emails or live messages on a dating site might have been prewritten and sent to hundreds of women like you. In its nature, online dating does not portend a lot of security for users and not many women will ever approach their local authorities to explain about an online scammer that defrauded them money when they were looking for love. Women end up hurting and falling into financial problems when the male scammers have disappeared with their money.

Only have minimum private details shared while avoiding giving too much information on the internet that you would never print on business cards or share with anyone down the street.
