Scams dating tricks
Some scammers offer to pay for visa themselves (as a "good faith" gesture).
After the "visa" is received, the scammer asks for money to buy - usually around 0-00.
Quickly, the " female" (the bait) falls in love with her Internet acquaintance, and shortly after " she" begins to plan her travel to see her Mr. Money issues arise, and, reluctantly, the bait asks the gentleman to help "her" with money for her visa and tickets.
As a results of using the sets of pre-written letters, scammers tend to ignore questions posted to them, or when they do answer questions, they answer them only at the very beginning or at the very end of each letter.
And so " she" will reluctantly ask for financial help again.
If the guy is determined to make her supposed trip happen regardless of the expenses, he sends the money again and again.
Often, scammers use big online dating web sites to approach their potential victims.
When that happens, their profiles on sites like Yahoo and indicate that they are from the USA, Canada, or Europe (that is because those sites no longer accept subscribers from Russia).
