Common Scams That People Use Online!!!!

We have all heard or seen the show Catfish.  Unfortunately more and more people are being approached online on valid online dating sites and social media for the purpose of being scammed.  You may think this can’t happen to you, but these scammers make their living doing just this.  It is usually a long process that can take months before the scam takes place.  All the while the scammer is doing this and making a living on other victims at the same time before the scam moves to you.

They play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts, or personal details!

Here are some warning signs that you may be talking to a scammer.  Again, these items may take months to surface.

  1. Express strong emotion connections to you when you have talked for a short period of time
  2. Suggest you move the relationship to a more private communication such as email, phone, or instant messaging.
  3. Claiming to being or visiting Australia, Europe or other western countries and traveling for business or taking care of a family member overseas.
  4. Not calling you by your given name to soon and calling you “pet names”
  5. Asking for photos or videos of a intimate nature when you have never met
  6. Sending you gifts, money, checks, or maybe valuable items such as a laptop or iPod and asking you to resend it to someone in the United States or overseas.  Take warning to this, it may point to a criminal offence or money laundering scam.
  7. Subtly or indirectly asking for money, gifts or banking/credit card details for a emergency or for a sick child or loved one.
  8. Subtly or indirectly saying they can’t pay for house payment, rent, or car payment due to their check book or wallet being stolen from a robbery or burglary.
  9. Asking you to cash a check or use a credit card, because they can’t for some reason and offering to give you a portion for your trouble. Take warning to this, it may point to a criminal offence.
  10. Claiming they would like to fly to see you or asking you to fly to see them in the States or overseas and they will pay for it.  Offering to let you move in during times of need or taking care of you.  Take warning this could be a sign of Human Trafficking.

Regardless of how the scam takes place remember these are professionals, or predators, and you may fall into this without even knowing it. When in doubt, check the facts and don’t let your good nature land you into financial loss or a unknowing criminal act.
