These are examples of some of the most notorious scams in the world of online dating and on the internet in general.
This is one of the most popular scams in online dating.
It turns out that the crippling fear of an awkward first date is the least of your troubles.
A fraud is sweeping online dating sites, according to a special report in this month’s issue of Glamour Magazine.
The standard scam story then starts to unfold as your online date suddenly has some sort of emergency in Nigeria or Ghana.
The stories may range from a businessman having an accident while in Nigeria for work to a helpless woman being stranded in Ghana; from asking for charity donations for Africa to a family member having a brain hemorrhage while in Africa.
The scam typically works like this: A con artist, usually based in an Internet cafe overseas, will lift a photo from Facebook or another social networking site.
They will painstakingly craft a fake profile and begin targeting people that are looking for love.
