➡️ Scammers will try to take your communication away from the website very quickly, by giving your their private email address or requesting yours, usually in their first message.
➡️ They use overly romantic language or write you poetry.
➡️ They like using words like “dear,” “honesty,” “trustworthy,” “destiny,” “faith,” “private email,” “I have something important to tell you,” etc.
➡️ They usually claim to live near you, but might claim to be working overseas.
➡️ They can’t wait to meet you, however, when it comes to meeting, they have excuses why the can’t make it.
➡️ They usually look very gorgeous, often using photos of models from the internet.
➡️ They will spend time with you online trying to earn your trust.
➡️ They will claim to have similar life situations as yours to bond with you more easily. For example, if you have recently suffered a loss, they will claim that they’ve also lost someone recently.
➡️ Their life story is usually very sad.
➡️ They will request money from you usually for various reasons like medical issues, travel expenses to visit you, business opportunities, or to support some sort of charity.
— Never send money to anyone you meet online or share access to your financial resources!
— Never receive or resend a package or check for a stranger!
— Although there are bad people out there, there are good people out there too. Online or not.
— Always use common sense and trust your instincts! If it doesn’t feel right, there’s usually a valid reason behind that feeling.
