Cupid online dating scams
Some scammers will show fake copies of plane tickets, visas or other documents to make the travel plans appear to be authentic.After wiring the money the victim waits at the airport patiently with a bunch of flowers for his/her love of their life to arrive.Several weeks later the victim looks at their credit card statement and sees billing for adult chat services.
It's important to remember that anytime anyone sends any money to any scammer, no matter how small, it encourages the scammer to harass other online daters for money.
Only when all passengers are off the plane and the scammer doesn't show up do they realize that they've been scammed.
In order to avoid these scams never send money for any travel related expense, instead make it clear that you will travel to meet them AFTER you have spent considerable time chatting to them for many months.
In this scam the scammer will say that he/she wants to visit you but doesn't have enough money to pay for his/her plane ticket and travel expenses.
They will then suggest that you send them the money so they can purchase a plane ticket.
