Saw an American Greed episode about this very thing. A black guy scams 13 white women in online dating... stole over a million... 15 years in prison. A corporate white guy scams literally HUNDREDS of people out of their savings.. stealing over 100 million.... gets 18 months to 5 years, max. Hmmmmm.....

I was also a victim of love fraud, I was cheated over 8000euro, but I was proactive enough when I realized that I was being cheated. I contacted a recovery company called "Myprincipal Chargeback," which helped me get back a substantial portion of my money without any prepayment.

People, if you are that lonely then get a dog. Spend money on the dog, not an internet boy/girlfriend. He strung her along for 2 years. Posed as some white dude in the UK. Why not just fly over and see him after a few months? You would see if he is real or not. A plane ticket and hotel room is a lot cheaper than a million dollars. Geesh.

It's brainwashing. Get your finances and sex wrapped up in something and you're vulnerable. Your financial resources and sexuality is the deepest part of you and once that gets tapped into you can get controlled. Congtivive dissonance takes over knowing that you've let someone into those parts of you and mess around and you can not face it. Terrible manipulation.

Miss Tonya c007 (3 months ago)
I know right? But it's because you have common sense. I've watched a lot of Dr Phil episodes and I've noticed a pattern, most of these women falling for this fakery are shopaholics and have a history of shelling out money two family members so that they will come around and give them some company. I guess they feel family members got tired of being around them after they were widowed or divorced so this was an excellent alternative. No one setting out to formally date someone online quickly Falls for the money grab in such a short amount of time usually. Because if you have a specific goal of dating online and being swept off your feet by a man, it would be a turn-off when he asked for money. These women are lying pretending that they set out to date the man but it was really them being tapped on the shoulder by someone giving them compliments and attention and they fell for that crap and trying to spin it into a scenario where they supposedly were dating. This is why the women don't ask any in-depth questions whatsoever and pick up on any red flags is because they're getting their pay off already, they already satisfied they just become disenchanted when the man's attention and affection dries up in it shifts to only calling to see if they have wired the money and the conversations get mad short. I've watched a lot of Dr Phil episodes and I was just curious about the psychology of the people but I saw a pattern and picked up on the women slipping up and admitting that they have a problem outside of getting scammed online! Then it started to click for me and make sense Why these women got duped for so long and for so much.

How stupid could this gal be? A child knows that can tell more about somebody from five minutes of sitting and talking with them in person than you could from a lifetime of back-and-forth on the internet. If she would have simply spent a couple of grand on a trip to England to meet Mr. Yobungo she would have quickly discovered the scam. Instead she sent him a million dollars and made him a very rich man in Nigeria. I guess she should be happy that she is supporting Yobungo's family in style with her savings. I did enjoy the smile on his face when he came clean. He must be still laughing about his crazy rich sugar momma in the USA.

I met a guy on Asiandating.com and unfortunately fell in love with him.I don’t know how he got me so bad that I fell like a fool for him. I am a doctor and very exposed. I lost a total of $800,000 to this heartless scammer. I was so traumatized after knowing that amount was lost. I tried the police, western union stores all came to no avail. Fortunate for me I stumbled upon a recovery agent online who guided me in steps to recover my money . I string recommend all of you going through a depression and a broken heart to contact wealthrecovery94ATGeeMailDotCom. He will guide you on how to recovery your money lost to the heartless heart robbers. It’s so unfortunate.

Jose Sanchez (1 month ago)
TheLaydewlf Once you’re on a few dating sites, you get to learn what the scammers say to determine who is a scammer. One red flag is that you end doing most of the talking, while the scammer responds to nothing you’ve written. That’s the first red flag to watch out for. If it happens at least twice, and especially the third time, that’s the hint that they are a scammer, and and usually it’s really a guy in my opinion that is hiding behind a woman’s profile. Doesn’t really matter though.
TheLaydewlf (1 month ago)
they have whole classes about it in nigeria and internet cafes. they have scripts written out and teach new boys all the time how to do it. then they pass the success stories on to the next scammer.

Hello, I'm so happy i got my refund of 450k USD back from this heartless broker,When it comes to Binary Options, there have been quite a few examples of people who have been taken for a ride by a Broker and have lost a large amount of money and i was a victim,Many of these brokers misappropriate traders money thinking these traders will not act. Beware of where you invest in,Binary Option Scams are quite common and come down to a number of factors including improper due diligence and manipulation by the broker we should be very careful with these so called brokers. If you have lost some funds to any binary option broker, contact; [email protected]
