We are living in the age of the scam. Catfishing, advanced video fakery, multilevel marketing, Instagram lifestyle gurus, the Fyre Festival, Dirty JohnTrump Moscow, a pyramid scheme involving actual pyramids : scratch any news story these days, and fraud falls out. But what are these scammers really thinking? And what is it like to be one of their victims?
Love but be proud.
Thanks for reading!
There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at ftc. A couple of weeks later I get an invitation to his private Instagram. He says he had to delete his Facebook due to military privacy. He talked me into just anything would help. Doing it to men too. He told me he opened this for his fans to have one on one conversation and answer any questions.
He has many pics and I've tried to do background and pic checks but I can't find anything. But i don't know why he can show me the proofs of his articles on the internet and s with law firm and bank, Can they be faked?

He even has a linkedin that looks real and IG and multiple FBphotos looks all real but mostly old and will try to send them one by one on a case by case depending on the topic that you are talking just to get to know you and get your trust. It is being harsh on yourself when you lay much blame on yourself for being deceived. I just started talking to this guy and luckily catfish is a show I like to watch because he just asked me for money because his leave from the military was granted and he needs to get home but is broke.
They get on defensive quickly Ha I used my own iTunes card. If you look at his IG he is very handsome and will fall in love with his smile I wished he was real. It's life: crazy things happen.

You are worth much more than that. Therefore, whoever that has toyed with your hearts will surely meet their doom. Trust but be cautious. Thanks to all these blogs and comments, though it is a bit late that i found this site, it is very helpful and made me aware the man i am chatting with is one of these scammers. They profess their love quickly. Very well spoken, grammar is very good and talks well but never talks on cam or send new photos.
I don't know why the company can pay his wages in lump sum, is it reasonable? I brought up the fact that he was so famous and rich why did he need me to buy his cards. Mark Austin claims to be in Australia, has his own house in Houston, 1 son 11 yr old, 2 yrs widowed, no more family as all died. Pls stop thinking that Africans or Nigerians are all scammers. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. In his Linkedin shows very impressive informations and looks a real one, worked at KBR.
IG has very few post, acct name: markaustin not sure how they are able to take and spread those stolen photos.
He was smooth and got me to open up right away. May I ask what it was he tried to scam? He says he is a flight medic in Nigeria. A lot of good people are out there searching for love. What made me think this is all legitimate is the deposit needed to be in cash and I was given a name and to deposit to I am very confused All s point to scammer but the last thing confuses me. Hi, I know this is 2 years later, but I am currently talking to a Lucas unsure of what his last name is that I met on a dating app. If you have been scammed before, don't hate everybody. Has anyone been scammed by a Lucas minter?
My husband recently passed away so I am vulnerable fight now. Friend had these women asking for iTunes cards. What do I do. Someone should spend to come home to you. Pls, be very careful and don't let your loneliness make you fall for someone who cannot catch you. So stop sending money to people who claim they are in chains and want your money to unchain them so that they will come and love you.
It started when I had liked and asked to his fan club on Facebook. Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Why all of the tricks? The journey to finding a scams is not really easy. Everyone deserves to be loved as much as they've loved. While it's true that some people get Atlantic by not getting hurt along the way, some get hurt. We only live to love and be loved. I believe that I am being scammed by someone posing as a celebrity. Dear ladies, I pray you all smile real soon.
You cannot pay someone to love you. Hi im talking to a guy dating reason he said he lost his bank card. Whatever that happened to you is already in the past; you are still valuable and the earlier you start seeing this City, the better for you. I wish there was a way to get him in trouble! The God of love will surely put that sacred smile we long for on our faces. They ask you to:. We have only been talking for about a week, but as of right now I havent had anything like that happen and would like to know if it may be the same guy?
Finally he won the company and he claimed that he needs money to buy flight tickets from Syria to other safe countries to unlock his bank to transfer the wages back to the company as he made an agreement with it that he needs to pay back his wages. Or so they say. I just so happen to have one for 25 bucks and then I thought about it I thought you know I want to use it myself that made him very very angry. I don't know, he said he's from Canada and he's now asking USD for buying flight tickets, i told him to ask his friends or colleagues and he said his colleagues are kidnapped and his parents are all passed away, he seems to have no friends.
Again, most of these scammers may be close to internet you are and may want you to think they are far. I met a guy who is a journalist working in Syria, recently he said he wants to quit his job due to the unrest situation but his media company does not allow him to do it, and he has lawsuit with that company.
Here are some warning s that an online love interest might be a fake. I was in awe, why would this person contact me? The scammers transfer stolen money into the newand then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. I did ask exactly that on the second day.

Give but be wise. It's horrible going through your comments.
He is also in the Army and says he is stationed in Africa. Mother Australian Father French. Be patient enough and look for them they might even find you first. If you just met someone, and he suddenly has money problems and asks you for money, it could be a scam.
He also sent me a picture of a passport and says I am safe with him.
Hackensack daily voice!
That happened to me too. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel.
Piece of scum! We have a handful of them here, yes, but most of us are hardworking people who hate hurting others.
