Fake profiles on online dating sites
I talk about it in great detail in my article on the Romance Scam but it comes down to them gaining your trust and then needing your help to get out of a horrible situation overseas.As mentioned above, don’t believe you’re perfectly safe on a pay site.
If you suspect someone of being a spammer or scammer, make sure that you report them immediately to the website’s support team. There are all kinds of reasons that a real person may not answer your messages and many of them have nothing to do with you personally.
All the scammer need do is convince you to move the conversation to personal email addresses before their account is closed when the stolen credit card issue is recognized.
