Financial Scam Technique
UaDreams agency wants You to be able to protect yourself by learning how to spot the danger signs of scams. Common financial scam techniques are given below.
If a buyer promises a cashiers check/money order/Western union that overpays you, and then requests that you wire the difference to them after keeping some for yourself, beware! Scamsters who adopt this method typically use forged or bogus checks, and it's not difficult to realize who's overpaying who.
If you receive and reply from someone in Africa/Nigeria/Abidjan who claims to have millions of dollars from a dead husband/father/brother and wants you to help get the money out of their country - it just sounds too good to be true! This is commonly known as the Nigerian 419 scam, and is named after the corresponding penal code of Nigeria.
If a seller offers his goods at an unbelievably low price, you should ascertain if he's credible. Some scamsters take your money and run, leaving you with nothing but a lighter wallet. Pay by credit card where possible. In most cases, you can dispute credit card charges for non-delivery of goods. You can also use an intermediary service such as escrow. For a small fee, an escrow service holds the payment, forwarding it to the seller only when the buyer has received the goods in working order. An escrow service will also act as a mediator in times of dispute.
The red flags that will help you to be safe
All scam patterns have similarities that are very easy to spot if you know what to watch out for:
- You met on a free site.
These sites are the place where nobody checks the profiles. The lovely lady writes you and says that “she” is interested in you, you impressed her a lot and so on. She makes you feel that you are the one special from the first letter.
She doesn’t say the word “money”.
What does it mean for you? You should be very attentive if the lady doesn’t ask you about your financial status or your income. As usual men worry when they are asked this question. But you should be careful if “she” doesn’t show an interest. “She” may pretend.
She’s looking for a good personality.
She doesn’t need anything else except of good personality. This word combination doesn’t say anything and is wide at the same time and lets every man think that it’s about him.
“She” falls in love fast.
She is in a hurry and she starts saying about love in the first letters. Be extremely careful and don’t believe in love from the first letter.
“She” would like to be mysterious.
The woman doesn’t answer your questions even if you ask her. She stays mysterious and she wants you to be curious and think about her all the time.
She doesn’t have money.
The lady tells you that she is not financially secure, that her salary is small and the boss doesn’t pay it in time. Of course, it may be the truth but the lady whose aim is to build serious relationships will not start talking about this unless your communication is close enough.
Sick relatives and pets
Be sure if you get the information about sick mother, father, a hamster or a parrot in the second letter, you faced a scammer. Be wise and don’t send money, of course, as a gentleman you’d like to help and to save your lady. But don’t save the scammer, go on looking for your lady.
She asks money for trip
You like each other and you decide to meet but you are too busy at work to visit the lady. So you decide to invite her and at that very moment you got the letter from her with extremely high prices. You will get the sum for visa, the double price for the tickets and so on. If you would like to check, suggest paying everything yourself. You’ll buy a ticket and you will send her it, you’ll book the hotel and so on. Be very attentive and smart, even though you like the woman a lot.
Got money and disappeared.
When a scammer gets money, she disappears and never answers the letters or phone calls. But there are some scams who tell you very sad stories with 100 reasons and stay in touch, hoping to get more.
There are a lot of other "red" flags
The most prominent is the fact that scammers don't really read your letters. They are too busy corresponding with all potential victims. They don't answer your questions. They don't remember what you have written - actually, they don't relate to the content of your letters at all. Those letters could be sent to anybody: "her" letters are pure monologue that becomes more and more obsessed with "her love" to you and her desire to be together with you despite of everything that separates you. There are usually sequences of letters, and they send the same messages to all their correspondents, one by one, making the only change - the man's name (usually it appears only once, or does not appear at all - *she* uses "sweetheart", "my love" etc instead). And of course sooner or later it will end in money request.
Dear Gentlemen: the above statements are not a rule, but patterns that UaDreams has experienced with online correspondence. We advise that you pay attention and be cautious!
You can also meet not only a scam master, but fun lovers. These ladies like to travel from one country to another, to spend three months with one guy then one month with another... All costs are paid, new country, new experience, lots of shopping - lots of fun! for her, but not for you if you truly look for long term relations. By the end of her trip, she will inform you that she is not ready to make a commitment and need some time to think it over or that she thinks that they do not complement each other.
An average regular person can not easily leave the country for three months. If she is employed, it is almost impossible to get 3 months vacation there, even a student can not easily leave the university or college for this period.
Male Personal Scam Patterns
By now there is one pattern we are aware of - *he* places his profile on free dating sites and invites girls to come to his place and stay for a couple of months to see how it works. During this time period, his lady guest is doing her best to make him to like her - household, cooking, laundry, everything, sure free of charge and then - "good-bye" we are not good for each other. And then next "bride" and the following. This is probably the most difficult case to define if he is a "scammer" or not. But obviously the same pattern will work here - *he* will not be interested in a lady's personality, he will not answer all questions and will avoid to share his life details. *He* will like a lady real fast and will invite her to come to his place without any delays. Dear Ladies, again everything that is said above is not a rule, but UaDreams agency advises you to pay attention and be cautious!
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, there are thousands of sincere honest people online who dream to love and be loved, who are truly looking for their soul mates and life partners.
Be cautious, be smart, be lucky and you will find your dream date, best friend, passionate lover and caring loving life partner.
