Rebecca Philips was recently scammed by a man she met in a dating chat room. After months of almost emptying her account to send money to his alleged sick mother, she still can’t shake off the negative feelings that crop up in her head once in a while.

After many failed relationships, she decided to try out dating sites because her friends won’t let her be. They kept prodding her about doing something different for once and see if her prince charming can finally emerge from the dating site. She went for it and got burnt badly.

Before taking that plunge, she used to pride herself as being a rational, realistic and careful woman. But falling prey to an on­line scammer was the height of it. After her experience, she learnt the hard way; not everyone on online dating sites is actually looking for love. Many of them are after other people’s pockets.

How they operate

Many of these scammers cre­ate fake online profiles using pho­tos of other people both men and women alike. These days, they have even resorted to lifting pic­tures of attractive Nigerian men and women from Facebook, Ins­tagram and LinkedIn social media platforms just to keep up the scam. These individuals have no idea that their pictures are being used by criminally-minded people to defraud others.
