The Danger of Accepting a Stranger
THE PROGRESS OF THE SCAM... THE HIGHS AND THE LOWS....
THERE IS NEVER A GOOD OUTCOME IN A SCAM.
When you get a Friend or Follow Request WHAT DO YOU DO?
1) Just accept, they look ok
2) Look into the profile, see if you know anyone
3) Check it’s pictures and posts for who it may be?
4) Does it have family? Friends? Anyone commenting
5) If one of your friends is a mutual friend… DO YOU KNOW THIS PERSON?
6) IF IN DOUBT...
LEAVE IT OUT!
So! You accept THAT Friend/fOLLOW Request… How does it seem to you?
Does it ask questions? What is your name and where are you from?
Are you Single? Do you have kids?
How old are you?
Am not here all the time can we go to Whatsapp/Google Chat/Telegram ?
SO BEGINS…. honey, baby
Does the love start VERY quickly ????
ABOUT THE LIFE THEY HAVE ... AND HAVE HAD
Wife Died of Cancer, Car Crash or Childbirth
Divorced... Partner was found in bed with another man, often a friend of his. These days they often add in they are on uhard drugs!
PARENTS AND ALL FAMILY DEAD.. THEY WILL TELL YOU OF A SAD PAST. YOU are all they have in the world.
CHILD IN A BOARDING SCHOOL OR WITH A NANNY....
Similar stories if a make or female scam....
ALSO THOUGH, NO AMERICAN HAS A CHILD IN SCHOOL IN GHANA OR NIGERIA.....
So you went to Google Chat/Telegram/Whatsapp?
YOU PASSED THE FIRST TEST OF OBEDIANCE... they were able to move you to where they wanted you.
Di you give out your phone number or email address.... then they have a way of contacting you when the scam ends.
Every night there will be some impossible romance (easily found online they have copied).. maybe some flowers pics and 'Goodnight babe'.... (then they can quickly send to all their women without getting the name wrong)
In the morning the same, impossible love words, completely wrong for someone not long met and then only online.
When is your birthday honey? Along with your age, there is your date of birth.
VIDEO CHAT... they cant'! Camera broken, against security or safety...
ALWAYS A REASON.... YOU WILL NEVER GET A GOOD LONG, FACE TO FACE CONVERSATION ON VIDEO WHICH LASTS A LONG TIME.
The days go on.... and they are now in LOVE....
They very often say..
from (for example) from Germany
and live in (for example) Texas.. Why is this?
They believe it covers thier
accent' if they voice call. Some even say they picked up an African accent working there.
Be honest in what you are hearing.... don't accept everything your stranger tells you.
On an oil rig.. yet can text or talk for hours.
in a War Zone or Base... yet can text or talk for hours.
NOT ALL SCAMMERS HAVE BAD ENGLISH. They do often say 'am' too often but many send good English.
Get the Proof... Know the Truth Before your new relationship goes on isn’t it better to KNOW. If it refuses a video call.. a nice, long, chatty, video call…. THEN GOOGLE. Just looking up ‘military man contacting me’... or ‘oil rig man contacting ‘ will bring up a lot of results. Come to a page like ours.. we will look for you and do a good image search. THIS IS YOUR LIFE and what happens after today in your online relationship will affect the rest of your life. NEVER ASSUME WHEN YOU ARE TALKING TO A STRANGER…. The danger is very real. ‘Am Real babe’ is NOT PROOF
So you are talking every day.... Love words flowing babe! Then one day... it is his child's birthday. He has promised him/her an iphone or laptop.. his bank is frozen, honey please send one to her and I will pay you as aoon as I can. Send to the teacher, here is the address. Then some Gift Cards to top up the phone baby! They love you so much honey, and one day. Baby will you marry me? Am not wanting to live without my queen. It is quick but you are so much in love... he says.. 'don't tell anyone about us honey, they will want to spoil our happiness'
You get asked for money once your scammer feels you will pay. The length of time for this will vary. You are now often called, 'Wife' .. you may get emails from the Military or UN to register as Fiancee! This often asks for copy of passport, ID, SSN (If USA). Of course you PAY to register. If he is an Engineer, then emails will come as 'wife' and he will ask you to apply for 'Leave' .. this is used in ALL scams. You can plan for your wedding when they get home. He/ She says you will get all your money back! Emails from his 'Commander or boss' let you apply for 'Emergency Leave' .. for a price. It may need a replacement to be paid for. The serious money is now asked for.
This 'romance' with a stranger is FAKE. It is to steal money.. ONLY Some way to ask for money? Says has no access to money.. LIES Military: Food, Medical bills, lost a weapon, lost ID, phone or wallet. Kids need gift cards. Phones/laptops for school. Fiancee Register, Leave, Flights. Arrested/kidnapped. Others: says has no access to money, even Oil Rig/Doctor LIES Lost phone, medical bills, flights, leave, Gift cards for data. TRUTH: NO REAL PERSON NEEDS MONEY FOR ANY REASON
By now the 'relationship' is going strong.... You will most certainly be wife/husband. Plans for the future are talked of. You may have emails or message from the 'child'.. calling you Mom/Mum He needs your bank account or you to make one and you accept money. He may argue if you don't give it to him... 'babe don't you love me' ? Maybe you get gifts... a ring, a pizza, flowers... they will do this to get your trust You may get a fake Military /Doctor or Engineer ID and/or passport.
