This is an extreme case of online dating scamming but should serve as a wake up call to all online daters; do you really know who is on the other end of that email or phone?

The story goes that they are paid in money orders but are having trouble cashing them; could you please cash the orders and wire the money to Nigeria?

Some scammers claim to be North American, European or Australian citizens working in an African nation such as Ghana, Nigeria or based in Lagos.All they need is a sum of your money to get things rolling or to cover bank fees.Whatever creative, captivating and greed inducing story you read know this: it's a scam.Scammers often use female profiles as well to fool their potential victim.Again, they pretend to be a woman from a Western country while all the while being based in Nigeria.
