You need to be aware of these kinds of dating scam examples when looking for love online. Here are a few examples of the way they try to entrap you, these are often subtle and can last for weeks, months or even years until they get what they want. There are other examples and scammers are forever changing their tact to try and lure people in. Please take note and be aware of the different ways in which they operate.

The military lover
Posing as troops that are stationed in countries like Iraq or Afghanistan, scammers will work their way into unwitting women’s or men’s hearts, and of course, their bank accounts.
The scammers often steal identities of real soldiers serving in these countries, often using their names, photo’s and even rank, then build false profiles around this and fool you into sending money to support them.

DO NOT SEN MONEY EVER.

The terminally ill or cancer patient
This is probably the lowest form of scamming, once they’ve convinced you that their heart is yours and you should be soul mates they suddenly fall ill or are involved in a serious accident, or even worse explain they have cancer and need treatment. They will ask you to pay their medical bills, claiming that they will pay you back when they see you, in some instances, they have got a friend to claim they are their doctor, and even phoned people. They will go to any lengths.

DO NOT SEND MONEY EVER.

The devoted family man
Although males get scammed by online dating scammers, the majority of victims tend to be women, in the instance of the devoted family man, the fraudsters know how to pull at a woman’s heart strings. They will go to any lengths, saying they have a wife that’s terminally ill or that they can’t afford their son or daughter’s college fees. Maybe they will ask for money to fund their sons or daughters wedding, and the lowest of the low, ask to help pay for funeral costs as their child has died. These are ruthless individuals, not to be trusted.

DO NOT SEND MONEY EVER.

The selfless missionary
These will go to great lengths to get your money, claiming to be serving God and on missions in third world countries helping the poor, once they convince you by sending all sorts of devastating pictures, taken straight out of a magazine or off the internet, they will then deliver the sob story about how war has broken out and they need money to help the children.

DO NOT SEND MONEY EVER.

Playing hard to get
This is the most common scam, scammers love to tell their victims that they will visit soon and can’t wait to spend time with them, but at the last minute come up with some story about a canceled flight or denied visa or robbery. They may try this one several times not asking for money at first, but soon they will, as their funds are running low due to bad luck. They will either want money or your bank details.

DO NOT SEND MONEY EVER.

The business man an offer to good to miss
This can apply to men or women, this is one of the oldest stories in the book. A business man or woman is in another country finalising a deal, they may have been talking to you for months and now are ready to earn big time, but need investment to clinch the deal, then they can leave all this behind and come to meet you. Fake, Fake Fake.

DO NOT SEND MONEY EVER.

The long distance lover
These are the scammers that claim they are traveling on business trips around the world but don’t get a chance to visit the country you’re in. This is often the bait used in order for you to help them meet up with you, claiming to need money for travel, visa fees or medical emergencies that their insurance won’t cover.
