Internet dating scams from ghana iran dating space
Remember the golden rule - NEVER SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MEET ONLINE.
While most African singles looking for a date online are genuine, it cannot be denied that many online dating scams originate in African nations such as Nigeria, Ghana or Ivory Coast due to the low per capita income, high rates of unemployment, high rates of corruption and ineffective policing in these areas.
A romance scam is a confidence trick involving feigned romantic intentions towards a victim, gaining their affection, and then using that goodwill to commit fraud.
Fraudulent acts may involve access to the victims' money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, e-mail accounts, or national identification numbers or by getting the victims to commit financial fraud on their behalf.
"William" is probably not even based in a Western country and is yet another Nigerian scammer trying to dupe innocent people off their money.
Scammers often use female profiles as well to fool their potential victim.
Upon finding victims, scammers lure them to more private means of communication, (such as providing an e-mail address) to allow for fraud to occur.
The fraud typically involves the scammer acting as if they've quickly fallen for the victim so that when they have the opportunity to ask for money, the victim at that time has become too emotionally involved, and will have deep feelings of guilt if they decline the request for money from the scammer.
After some time, "William" has to travel to Nigeria or Ghana for some reason e.g. Learn how these scams work so you can protect yourself. Run just like any "for profit" organization, there is a hierarchy and an organizational structure: the peons, the managers, the big bosses, the pimp daddies. There may be times when they have forgotten what you talked about before or call you a different name.
