80 percent at least ask me for a voucher ticket so they know that I am real and safe they say that you can get this ticket when you join hookup. If you google around for articles about Ashley Madison, the online up in the same place: They either ask you to sign up to a "ticket site" or ask.
She emailed me her pics a little too quickly though. And then she said she would like to meet. Whis raised a red flag. The she asked for my discreet hook up code. Just trying to figure out how to mess with her him? Ok I managed to get some more nice pics from this lady then she started getting pushy. I just got contacted through my hangout asking for She left her email on the bio of her profile, and asked people to drop her a mail.
This is probably the first response she has for anyone who drops the mail. I am talking to you in good faith and as honest as i can be. I hate lies, shits and pretending. I am no longer 6 to not sense it. Just a pure one night stand and we can be fuck buddies if you find me good lol. If you are down, then lets arrange now the meet up. Then, natalie fergus wrote: Because there is a lot of fake account they use fake picture, email and etc and also it is use for security system with a lot of crime,bullying and rape, worse is force film then upload it to the internet,its good to be safe than sorry, that is why i decided not to meet someone in public without SELF CARD.
If a mystery girl contacts you on a dating site and gives you an email address and sends you nice photos and makes sexual promises and then asks for id verification to be safe. This is how I respond! Hey Babe you contacted me first not the other way round. Well i got told to go onto safe dating service for to get a date safe card i dont no if its a scam but she told me they take your bank details with no charge i have a bank debit card it dident work dident have anymoney in my bank anyway so they dident get anything just worried incase it does come out when i have money in.
I just had one tonight boys. Same script different cast. The usual couple of pics, abit of a sob story then BAM. And oviezly we all google it and the scams there in black and white on a billion diffren web site. But no no no she gota read you the last bit of the script init. Jonalyn Gomez is a new one trawling the dating sites. Asking to verify ID at localmeetuparrangement. I have had two different girls asking me to go through a safety security site for me to meet them.
I searched for both of these websites on Google and found both of them on there. Can somebody please tell me if these websites are legit or not. There is no such thing as a valid safety security site. They are ALL operated by cybercriminals.
Google do not undertake any investigation into the validity of the sites themselves. There are many scam sites on Google — it is simply a search engine which brings all websites together in one place. If you have any issue on Datehookup Login then go for http: I find it interesting and rather amusing when scammers alert us to their new sites. So we can set up our discrete meeting. Follow this instruction carefully babe. So you will not be mislead. Make sure you will use this link i gave so we can get attach to the same server.
As you can see on the 2nd page babe you need to put CC info right? Look CC info is for age majority approval only But it wont cost you or charge you there even a cent as long as you have access code, Cause access code is use to protect your card from any charges there And ill guarantee to you that is free cause you can report me in customer support if i lie to you.
Hope you are serious to meet me to have some fun. Yes the exact same thing happened to me and some lady even gave me the run around that actually made me register for many other dating sites so I think this dating or meetup id thing is a major scam right people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes I totally agree with this forum. Since joining a few dating apps in the past 3 weeks, I have been barraged by these type of scams.
These are the emails of the scams I have received lately and they are piling up! I am on a crusade to protect the vulnerable from these parasites. I will investigate further and I will post more emails as they pop up! Hi again guys, if anybody gets scammed in this way described on this site or in any other way, you can report it to: But guys, get as much information as possible as some evidence will be required.
Here are some tips for safe dating, but first of all, a descent woman would never show off her body in ways that entice the male instinct. If a female should send you sexy pictures of herself, simply ask: The dating id thing is nothing but a total scam. Look, the bottom line is, let your brain do the thinking and you should be safe.
Anyway, most of them could be HIV infected so be careful! Hey, I am free today and tonight. Are you free and interested for meet? So, I never knew this was even a thing until today. The guy I was talking to and I seemed to be hitting it up, and we talked about hooking up. He threw out a story of how the last time he had set up a hookup from the site Grindr , he was ambushed and beat up by 4 guys. Upon discovery and little surprise , all the sites saying it was legit were all random blogspot ones that offered the service of setting it up as well. Whereas more legitimate sites such as this one have been claiming it to be a fake, potentially fraud inducing scam.
Oh, and the link was http: Her or his email address is: They are ALL created and operated by cyber criminals. Guys need to know and smell a scam when it is beginning. Online dating sites is not the best way to get the most of a woman. Since this is a discrete meet-up, first, to ensure of the anonymity of this meet-up, no taking of videos as we do it and that only the two of us will know that we are going to meet up. But I had some success. At last, I meet a local girl, to my surprise, living in my neighborhood. Beware of a scammer using the name Katie Morgan claiming to live in Orlando Florida and has a daughter named Vera.
This person will swear her undying love and may refer to you as her "King". If you say you're done with her she'll say she's going to commit suicide. May even tell you she's either in the hospital or just got out of the hospital. I was caught in a romance scam for over a year. This person told me they lived in another state but would not call. Money was sent to this person several thousand dollars, as they told me they were divorced after her ex abandoned her and her daughter. After six months of being lied to this person "came clean" and told me her daughter was living with her aunt in the US and that her ex abandoned her in Nigeria with nothing but her luggage.
Then I was told it had met a lady that she'd became good friends with named Nneka and that I could send money to her in the name Katie Morgan Nneka. That was the final straw and I've since stopped talking to this person and changed my phone number. The're out there they want your money because they're the winner you are the loser.
They have their own song about. Never give them money, they will do everything they can to get your money. I smart they will never get it. I would like to see one of them actually fly here. Western Union is suppose to ask you how long you know this person and protect you from sending the money.
You don't know this girl she's a fake and lair. They just want the money nothing else matters just the money! Are you really trying to offer another scam on an article that talks about how to be aware of scams? Recommend deleting this post above. In this article they suggest a search, for someone you think may be trying to scam you, says the search is free The next screen asks for a credit card number and which option you'd like to use??
Why did the previous screen say 'free' if it's not actually free. That sounds like a scam right there. Google Reverse Image Search https: Yandex Reverse Image Search https: Bing Reverse Image Search http: TinEye Reverse Image Search https: I'm in contact with a orthopaedic doctor, who tells me his in Ukraine, we've been chatting every day for some time now. He constantly tells me how much i mean to him, but don't they all? Since joining a dating site, think I've had more scammers than hot dinners. I chat with him on viber, what should I do?
Sounds like the best thing to do is just cease all contact. All of that sounds like typical scam techniques, and it'll be easier to just cut off all communication. Wow that sounds very much like the man I've been talking to I met him on CatholicMatches. If he doesn't get the money he will lose the contract and not get paid for all his time, efforts and hard work and will not get paid as they will reassign the contract elsewhere.
I could go on but it sounds like we're taking to the same man Beverly that sounds a lot like this guy that is communicating with me. Brian Reynolds with a heavy accent. Needed an iTunes card to continue to chat since his phone card was getting low and couldn't leave his job site to buy one. There are a million of them out there. Sounds like a man I met on Match. He is on an oil rig and lost some equipment. Wanted me to send money to help pay for it.
Now he is asking me to send money to help his daughter supposedly. Hmmm wonder if he is the same man. Reading these posts I'm shocked to see how much scamming seems to be "a thing" now days. I've had two attempts made on me in the last 3 months; and luckily I didn't fall for it. I met the first one on FB and only accepted his friend request because we had a friend in common. I went to his timeline to see who the friend was, and it was a childhood friend I've known since the 3rd grade. Now after this has happened again, and the 2 men sounded like the same man probably was ; I've been online the last two days looking at sites like this one It's amazing how we can become attached to, and really start to care about someone just through conversation!
My friends kept telling me to watch out, and I said that he hadn't asked me for money as the first one had. Lo and behold 2 days later he asked if I could send him an ITunes card, I though that wasn't asking for much considering he's out at sea, etc Then 4 days later last night he wanted a lot more, for a seemingly good reason, but when I told him no, he turned very cold, where before, he was madly in love and couldn't wait to meet, that I was the best woman that he'd had the good fortune to meet, yada yada yada.
Luckily I wasn't taken for more. So I know much more now after going to these sites on how to spot and avoid scammers, but it's just too emotionally draining ; I went to the Catholic dating site where I met him and opted out on renewing my subscription. Mine expires in November and I will not be renewing it. I'm very wary now about meeting someone online who is honest and trustworthy, who wants a relationship and not money. Well I wish everyone luck, just be very careful out there in cyberspace. Too bad the old saying is true I feel ya sister!!! Probably stole those pics.
Told him no to iTunes card. I did the dumbest thing ever. I actually started talking to man through his email. He was going to be leaving the site soon etc. With in seven days we had 48 pages of emails. None of his information could be verified. A meeting had been set up, but postponed because he had to go to the UK on business.
He knew I had no money up front, why keep up the front? He claimed to be pretty wealthy, but when I checked where he said he lived, it was cockroach infested apartments in very bad section of town. The real kicker he was out of town supposedly local at the time, and he asked me what airport he had to fly into to get to our locality. The idiot didn't know how to get home. I think my friend is being groomed by a scammer.
Its happening on facebook. On her page she only has pictures of herself and some of my friend that he sent her. She has no friends listed on her page.
Its like she has no life. He is too innocent to see it. She is young and pretty, he is 48 and bald.. Her name on fb is sandra ashlyn from california city california. I really hope he doesnt get conned out of any money. I think you're right. I wish we didn't have to wade through all this crap to find love.
I've given up on it. I would date a guy who is 48 and bald maybe because I'm an age appropriate match , but I can't find any who are real and who aren't looking for year-old women. I hope your friend survives this without losing his life savings. That does sound a bit like a scam, but it's always hard to tell. Have there been any updates since you posted this? I met this girl on Skout, and at first, everything was coming along at a nice pace, we started talking around midnight, but everything escalated quickly.
She is from CA, like me, but "working" in Nigeria. That same night, she told she was out of the country for research and her debit card wasn't working. She said she would be home in two weeks from the day we met, which will be three days from the day I am posting this. She said she needed to pay her phone bill so she would be able to talk to me. I payed her through Western Union. She then needed grocery money, so i then payed her the next couple days.
I even called her out that this was a scam, and she said she would never scam me or hurt me. We argued for a while asking what is her benefit from scamming me, and i told her my money. I asked her to send a photo of herself with a sign with my name, which I did for her, and the photo looked photoshopped. I called her out on it and she got mad, but she sent me a real photo with her same top, just without the sign.
I helped her out with groceries on and off until she told me if she doesn't pay her hotel bill, she will go to jail. She sent me a picture of a check from a restaurant in Tennessee, where she is not from, and asked me to put it in my account, cash it, then wire it to her. I told her no, this is a scam. She said she was heartbroken because I thought she was fake.
We argued all day that day and she said she just wanted to see me. She said i don't need to deposit the money and that she will be fine. She said she just wants my love. In her country, it is an 8 hour time difference, and she said she literally hated working out there. She text me when she got up, she even fell asleep a couple times.
And she wasn't even model-type, she was really cute though with live selfies. She sent me many pictures of herself and no similar images popped up with reverse image search. I sent her a couple of mine, and she said no dirty pics, and she said she is a virgin. When they ask for money then it is a scam. If not, then that person is just using you for money. If she is legit she will come. I asked her to send a photo of herself with a sign with my name Special "photoshop" software is available on the Internet, where you could type in whatever text you want, in the sign.
I got talking to a woman on a dating site. The conversation moved from the site to whatsapp and we have been talking on whatsapp for a long time in the evening and she is sending videos and images of herself. Everything being talked about is normal in the conversation and nothing out of the ordinary. Tuesday she said that she needed to go to casablanca for a meeting about some affairs. Then on wednesday she said that the meeting is not going well and that she needs to send a package to france and could I receive this package.
It is at this moment I knew that it was a scam, so now I am playing the scammer. My best line so far has been that I have shown her photo to my friend who is a policeman and he thinks that you are really cute and that he looks forward to meeting you. I have given all her details to the local police. I fell into it too met this really pretty woman online kept saying she loved me all the time long story short bought her a cell phone calls me can barely understand her such bs got me to purchase a plane ticket well i stopped it she goes by the name juliet corsy, or ruth juliet anni , she has 3 phone numbers all differnt locations she will say she's rich has money coming to her dont believe it its all bullshit.
Actually it's mostly men who are the victims by "young women" and older women who are scammed by "younger men". I thnk im being scammed too. I think its just stupid to believe that easily, but it is just but normal to give these people the benefit of the doubt that maybe, just maybe, they like you for real reasons.. I started dating a guy from Ghana and we had been talking for almost four months.
In the first month he asked would I be supportive of him and I asked what did he mean and he said if I could help him get a place because he lived with a friend and had no privacy. That was strange he would ask that but when I explained to him I couldn't he understood and never asked again. Next month he claimed to have been using someones phone and that he had to return it.
We went from talking everyday to barely talking and I had got use to talking everyday, so when he asked if I could help him with a new phone I helped him. He wanted me to western union the money which I did and he told me he didnt have a id and that I had to put his friend name down because he was going to have his friend do it and I did.
These things didnt really sit well with me but I continued to talk to him because he was very nice. It wasnt until recently a few days ago to be exact that I realized I am being scammed. Like we video chat and everything He said his mother passed away 2 years ago and they wanted to give him what she left behind. First thing is he never told me his mother passed and when he was saying it he appeared to be very sad He asks if I can deposit the money in my bank account then send it to him.
So when he said this "woman" needs some info from me to make the deposit I said ok. Im like why does she need all this and he says she need it for the deposit. Im telling him she would not need all that, but he's trying to pressure me to do it and saying I need to trust him. I kept saying a relationship with no trust is no relationship at all.
So i started looking up things online and thats how I noticed I was being scammed. From the strong feelings so fast, to the love quotes, just everything they speak of online is what I'm dealing with. The crazy thing is his profile is real, we video chat and everything. It hurts so bad to know that I have been talking to someone for 4 months developing real true genuine feelings and the whole time he was after my money. I am only 28 and so is he Im so ashamed because he has photos of me and my address. Idk whats to come next??? Yeah, requesting all of that information is definitely a warning sign.
I'm glad to hear that you thought of that right away! Many people don't realize it until later. Check if the pictures you've sent him are published on dating sites and pretend to be a girl looking for their partner in life. Use Internet Reverse Image Search. If you find your photos, please contact the dating department and tell them to delete the fake profile.
If you have bad luck this unscrupulous guy could have recorded your video conversation and will use it to scam other but, pretending to be you.
Or he will sell the video to other scammers. I got in an video-conversation with a fine woman around 30, living in Ghana. The funny thing was, that her microphone wasn't functioning. So I asked her via chat to put her hands on her ears. Then "she" complained why I don't trusted her.
She never put her hands on her ears. The reason that I asked, was that if it was a real time video, it would been easy for her, to put her hands on her ears. I'm sure that the scammer was playing a prerecorded video with som woman he have scammed. So be aware when you do a video-conversation with somebody unknown.
It could be recorded, and used to scam other people. This is my story: I wasn't looking for a date, but came across the site by chance. I was on for a very short time when I got hit up. First by a guy that said he was a doctor, but sounded more like a moron.
Within a week he was calling me 'Babe'. Soon after I was approached by another that was quite good at his craft. Exceptional actually, but there does seem to be pattern. I'd like to share my findings here, but how can I know that the scammers aren't here looking for tips? I will go so far as to write about an experience I had that left me quite baffled.
Hopefully you can shed some light on it. You mentioned that we need to go with our gut feelings. This is a tip that is becoming more and more true in this day and age in general. The encounter I had was with a man with a picture of a naked chest as his profile picture. He provided no other picture. Most of our correspondence was , 'Hi', 'Hey', 'How you doing? I started chatting with him shortly after I had encountered my first perpetrator I'll call him 'suitor' for the sake of this question. There was no reason to believe that one had anything to do with the other, but I had this gut feeling that in some way this new guy naked chest was somehow connected.
Anyway, 'Naked chest' asked for my number and I ignored the question. Later when my curiosity was heightened, I gave it to him. After more of the same tiresome dialect he suggested that he had been asking me out and wanted to know if we could meet up.
I unknowingly missed that clue. We were to meet at the market in his neighborhood. I arrived early and texted him to let me know when he got there, and that I was going to go into one of the other stores. He texted me when he arrived later than expedited. I came out and waited, but there was no one to be seen. He texted that he had to take a call form his 'boss' and he was terribly sorry. The call would take longer than he intended. I told him I was going to grab a bite to eat, to just let me know when he was available.
I finally gave up and told him I was heading home. He said "I'm so sorry". I asked if he saw me. The next day I didn't hear anything. Again curiosity got the better of me. After a couple of days I said, 'If you'd like to try again, let me know, otherwise just tell me you're not interested and there would be no hard feelings. For the sake of argument, I think it helpful to say, I look exactly as I do in my pictures, so it wasn't a matter of my appearance. My curiosity can't help but wonder if his 'boss' was my 'suitor'.
But what would be the purpose, what would the purpose be either way? That's a pretty strange scenario. Just goes to show that it's a good idea to listen to your intuition in these sorts of situations! I've read that statistics show that one in 10 people on a dating sight is a scam. My experience , however, has been more like only one out of 10 is the real deal. I started chatting with him shortly after I had encountered my second perpetrator I'll call him 'suitor' for the sake of this question.
He said "no'" The next day I didn't hear anything. That is pretty strange, you're right. Definitely seem suspicious, though. Glad to hear you're being careful! I am not sure- but I believe this guy is trying to set up trust. He has sent me about 15 pictures- including one of his daughter- nothing came up in various searches- an architect who first had to travel to Paris- who sent me pictures of he posing w the landmarks I asked but he could have these in his arsenal just in case- I asked him to send me a picture of him lying in bed- he did-there is someone by his name listed in his town in the white pages- his daughters name when searched has this guy's name as a relative.
His English reflects his education very well spoken- but is is Acraa Ghana surveying the land as an architecture before the hotel is built- dropped his phone- does not have money on him for his iphone6- I told him to buy a throw away prepaid if it was important to speak w me. He asked again- I refused- he apologized that he bothered me and continued to talk to me. His communication is sparse now saying the interconnect is bad in Ghana.
I have questioned him about the weather- he is on the mark and he called me both from Paris and Acraa- both with the correct country code- I am cautious but confused. That's a tough call. There are quite a few signs that it could be a scam, but his responsiveness to your requests seems like a good sign. Either way, be very cautious, especially if he starts asking for things from you.
I was scammed on surge! Cute younger guy chatted for a bit and seemed fine. He gave me the link to get verified and it said it was free but needed a cc to validate me. So like a dummy I used my only cc I had bank card and the sight charged me I told him what it did and he sent me another link to clear it and get my money back, but that link asked for my cc info again.
I told him this and he said I had to put it in again to get my money back and get the free trail. So I did but my card was declined , I freaked out thinking that my account was wipe clean out. So I checked my account and it was only the I told him this then he ask how much money my card had on it red flag I told him enough lol. I call my bank and closed my debit card and have a new one coming in 3 days.
I feel I got lucky and that he was planning somehow to clean out my bank account. So I am on the look out now that's for sure. Sorry to hear about that! I'm glad you didn't get scammed for all you're worth. It could have been a lot worse. Thanks for sharing your experience—hopefully it helps someone else avoid the same fate! It's funny, not really but you believe you are getting conned and yet you can't believe that it can actually happen to you.
I met a fellow on a dating site - made a good connection, gave him my phone number, he wanted to send me something so I gave him my home address and I got flowers and chocolates. I was on cloud nine. He didn't want to meet until we talked and knew we had a connection. Made sense, I had never been on a dating site before. He is an engineer and was submitting different bids. Had one accepted in Turkey - and would be flying out the following week to set up the initial contacts and set up the working plan.
Next week for sure. Talk to him by phone and the project in Turkey has problems and he now must pay for repairs to a machine that one of his employees broke. I don't have any. Every time he phones, texts, he asks if I have come up with any solution because we are in this together. He calls and says he can come home, the Director of the project will allow him to leave so he can get his financial situation straightened out in the US.
But he doesn't have the funds to purchase the ticket, could I give him the money? He gets to the airport and can't get on the flight, the machinery company will not allow him to board the plane. He gets a lawyer and the lawyer discusses with machinery company, if he now buys the machinery they will allow him out of the country. I am suppose to go to the bank for a loan in order for this to proceed.
He has no one else that can help him, so he says. I read this and I think, oh come on, are you that blind, so in love with a fictional character on the computer. Yet, I think, he is this great person, that I might be missing out on. I feel like a fool, in my gut I think I am getting screwed, and in my heart I want this person.
So sorry to hear about your experience. You're right, though; even if you're on the lookout for scams, you can still be taken advantage of. They're really good at what they do. I just had a go round with this SAME guy. I reported him to Match. I didn't give in when he asked that I wire money to Turkey and called him out but he continued to try to keep me on the hook. Had a supposed Turkish cell and whatsapp acct.
I checked his fb profile, and saw only very few post.. This is probably the first response she has for anyone who drops the mail. When I said that I think that he must be very intelligent because I could never do a job like his, he told me that I was so full of compliments that night. If you encounter any error when filling up the forms, go over your info and make sure that they are all correct. I call my bank and closed my debit card and have a new one coming in 3 days. Some days later, this person promised that it would redeem my money back, a thing that isn't happening yet. Zared 22 Aug Reply.
I demanded he send me verified ID and he kept coming up with reasons why he could not--company in Turkey keeps their passports until the job is done, he left his driver's license at home. He finally sent me a fake CA driver's license with a bunch of mistakes on it and when I called him out on that he finally stopped trying to keep me on the hook. He popped up on Match. While I'm not totally convinced it's the same guy, it certainly bears a remarkable resemblance! I'm glad you figured it out in time. A pdf of the story is a available here http: I got on our time. I wouldn't worry about getting in trouble; people get scammed all the time, and I don't think that's much of an issue.
She quit high school to give birth and raise a family. My father was He started out as a laborer, digging ditches and washing tankers for Standard Oil Co. My father helped me get my first job out of college. On that income, my wife was able to be a stay-at-home mother. Together, we raised two wonderful children here in Pasadena. More than words, they seemed to swirl about in my mind, tangled up in the reality of my recent poor judgment. As I waited that night, I dusted off my great grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary album and began flipping through its pages. I was 6 years old at the time and couldn't remember it, but there I was in the pictures.
I attended two more golden 50th wedding anniversaries in my life, my grandparents' and my parents'. When the sun came up, I heard my wife coming through the front door of our Pasadena home. She suggested that I make that appointment with the marriage counselor. I wanted to hear him perform live "The Luckiest. He fears that his words fail to convey just how lucky he is. I had planned to hold my wife's hand while Ben sang the repeating chorus "I am, I am, I am, the luckiest," and thank her once again for giving our marriage another try. Unfortunately, he didn't sing that song that night.
So now my plan is to sing it to her at the 20th wedding anniversary party we are planning for later this year. A Affairs chronicles love in and around Los Angeles. If you have comments, or a true story to tell, email us at LAAffairs latimes. This is how I found out my boyfriend was cheating on me.
I knew she was the one when we began arguing -- over the election. I'm a senior citizen. Here's what happened when I tried online dating. I was not thinking with my brain when I answered back, "You bet, babe! Dear John, there will be no second date.
