Dating scams 419
Armed with their fake identity, the scammer proceeds to forge a bond with you.
They often communicate with you for weeks and months so you think you are getting to know them better while it is actually all part of their master plan.
You might find their reasons actually check out and send them the money but in all likelihood, you have been scammed of your money.
This is a common ploy used by Russian and Filipino scammers to rob you off your money.
The general storyline is she will want to come visit you but does not have enough money and will ask you to send her money to help pay for the plane ticket and/or visa.
Instead of asking you to send them money for their ticket, they will instead send you scanned copies of a ticket to convince you they are genuine and are really coming to visit you.
They do not ask for money to buy the ticket or even for visa expenses… However, there is usually a last minute glitch and they will request you to send them a large amount of money without which the trip will be impossible.
