He's hunting through chat rooms, dating sites and social networking sites searching for victims, looking to cash in on romance.If you are over 40, recently divorced, a widow, elderly or disabled then all the better in his eyes.
It's the newest evolution of the Nigerian advance fee (419) scam.Scammers are often detected within 1-2 days after registration and they get deleted. If a woman wrote to you as it was written on the dating site from your country, but later she appears to be from Russia, Ukraine, Nigeria then yes, it is a scam.Yes, “women” can have different explanations why they registered from another country, but mostly those are excuses. Nine times out of ten, they “met” their soldier on a social networking site, such as Facebook, or an online dating site. ********** UPDATE: Two women were prosecuted for receiving over one million dollars from 374 people in these scams! Since starting the website in 2004, I have received many emails from people who believe they are dating a soldier when, in most cases, they actually are not.
