Do Your Homework on your Internet Lover!
What does it mean if you do research on your internet lover, and you can't find anything? It must mean they are real, right? WRONG! The only thing it means is that you couldn't find anything! It DOES NOT mean this person is real! So now what? Now it is time to look at what you DO know. Always do your homework!
· Use the most common reverse image search engines: Yandex, Google Image search, TinEye, Pimeyes is the best.
· Did you encounter this person from a dating site? Copy the dating BIO and put it on Google to see if all or part of it has been copied from the internet. Do the same thing with any love poems you receive.
· Did your internet lover send you a certificate or other types of bills and shipping invoices? Do a reverse search on everything that is sent to you!
Still can't find anything on those reverse searches? Then step back and look at the Big Picture! The answers are usually in 'the story' already told to you from the scammer! Start with the job they are claiming to do. See if you recognize any of the commonly used excuses given by scammers.

I have been contacted by Lawa W G Gabas on Facebook claiming to be Lt.Gen William B. Garrett on Apr 29, 2021, 9:27 AM. He has been texting me daily since then, saying he is in Iraq to work on scammers. He began professing love for me within 3 days. I told him I was not financially capable of anything, but so far he has not even asked for any money. In fact, he said he would help me financially, but he isn't able to do so from Iraq. He is using a South Carolina number to text from, 19108384952

Be careful of a neurosurgeon by the name of Alex Fernando Duray, who stole the identity of the real Dr Fernando Gomes Pinto from Sao Paulo. He has been haunting for preys esp women via LinkedIn and Twitter. In his account, he said he graduated from University of Albany, SUNY and that he is working at AdventHealth hospital in Miami Florida. Said he is divorced with 3 kids and his sister's son lives with him and that he is looking for a wife. Somehow, he managed to get all the videos and photos of Dr Fernando's family members and sent to his victims via whatsapp. I reckon he must have stolen all these from Instagram. Also said that he is managing a huge project on AI integration to neural activity and will be doing a major presentation to some Chinese sponsors at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Next he would say that he would like to invite you to join him in Africa as he is sponsoring a huge major project to feed poor African children. These are all stories he made up I guess to feed himself. Be very careful. His cell number is +1 (765) 789-0264. This is an Indiana number but he said on his Linkedin that he is based in Florida. Just too many extremes in his story. I guess when you lie too much, you will forget what you have said.
