How to make money with an online dating site
Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.
They play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts or personal details.
Must of been one of the scammers I had a previous fun time with online the day before. Omg he texts me at midnight last night said he was captured and bleeding and held hostage and he needs my help. Hi Unsure in texas, I too have come across guys that are asking for I-Tune gift cards. I am now texting with a guy who just this last weekend was relocated to an oil rig in the same place.
Well all I have to say is just be careful who you talk to and please please don't give anyone any money, they get mad they get mad, better them being mad at you then you having no money. (Now he's supposed to be in Texas so he said 2 weeks ago ) I said so your in Texas???? now today he asks me to send him an ITunes card in 2 places. After taking to one guy three weeks later I discover another one. They both claim to be working on an oil rigs in the Golf Of Mexico. Like a lot of these men they say they are engineers working for BP( British Petroleum) or another oil company.
i ask asking send an email to me with army email add, it has 'mil' last part so now im confuse please hepl if he is real or not i Tunes card is a way of stealing as well. Hi I have been contacted by 3 different men (possible scammers) through Facebook I have pictures but as someone said you cannot share them on here.
Since they will not give you a place to send the card, what they will do is ask you to scratch off the part of the card, i Tunes says not to. I do however have DM saved to my phone from two of them, one went as far as asking me to purchase an Itunes card for his son for his phone I told him no I don't have the money well he stopped talking to me for awhile that day, when we started talking to me it was from how was your day at work and I think your beatiful and we are made for each other I hope you feel the same as I do ect ect.
I know of a couple of women he scammed and he sent me a bad check and the bank told me it was a fake check. he is asking for call card, and when i tell him i will barrow credit card from my friend he told me no..
i dont like you barrow money to a friend bcs of i tot he is real but i start searching so army scam on internet is everywhere so i start doubt now.

Even at time if connecting I tried to do research in him but hit a brick wall.has a Facebook(I don't) but there is more of story and yes I totally understand how u feel but wanted to say u r not alone.ur head up,don't do ANYTHING u don't feel comfortable n doing Hi Ladies: I'm so sorry for your pain. If you notice only one pic or this person escalates his emotions quickly - even before meeting! True love comes from meeting the person face to face, learning about each other in broad daylight - not over the internet!!
And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.
Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason.
The second one claimed he was in the military and I knew better better because I did the reverse photo search on the pictures to and they were all over the place as well.
We started emailing each other his IP address pinged him (probably from a software) as being in the UK i went to email him and all my emails came back telling me the email address did not exist so I replied back to his original email he sent me telling him I knew he was a scammer and not from the military.
Well I went along with it until I did a photo reverse search found out the photos were not his they were all over the place from different scammers (Probably the same one).
