Some women in their 20’s and 30’s also fell for it, and some of those women were quite attractive. We had women who lost vast sums of money in the tens of thousands of dollars. There were suicide attempts among our female victims, and I understand that a few women committed suicide after being scammed.
The dating scam was being continuously refined while we were dealing with them.
These fellows were often not the sharpest tools in the shed, and I must say, if you keep falling for this scam many times, you truly are an idiot.
The scams being run by Chinese and East European women and Filipinas were run along similar lines, however, there you are often dealing with a real woman who is just trying to milk you for some cash.
After all, good looking, high quality men can fall for a hot model babe quite easily also. Some were even threatening to get some weapons, go to Nigeria and kill scammers.
“4 million members” is a great selling point, and they could care less if 80% of them are not even real humans at all but are just criminals using fake pics to steal from you.
For women, they use pictures of the hottest men out there.
It is far more sophisticated than the stupid 419 scam.
Furthermore, scammers and criminals have almost completely taken over many dating sites to the point where there are hardly any real women on there anymore.
