How to stop a dating scam
It could be the scammer sending her goods that she should forward to the scammer, again, paid for by compromised bank account, he could employ her to print and send his fake checks for him or have her open bank acounts for him to use.People often wonder what a scammer sees in a victim that has no money, the answer is still money, he will just take a different road to getting it.Unfortunately that still wasn't enough to break her free. I figured if she would believe anything some fake guy would tell her then I would become a another fake guy.I created an identity of a guy who tracked scammers and had noticed she was listed as a friend of his on Facebook.Disclaimer regarding pictures posted on the board: please understand that you are NOT looking at the pictures of people who are actually scamming you.The people portrayed on these photos are innocent men and women, NOT involved in scamming in any way and have nothing to do with scammers.I have done some research and found places where this scammer used the same picture under a different names, and I want to send that to her, but I believe she will just forward it to the scammer who will say his picture was stolen and then he will go clean up those sites.I want to point her to the entries about the scammer in this website, but I am afraid she will see the emails of hers that I posted and get really upset, and she will probably pass any links to this site on to the scammer, which I hear is a big no-no. I have collected as many emails that I can and looked up the IP address.
After my friend heard 3 women tell the same story about the guy, she finally started to question him.One thing that we could try is to contact her ourselves, sometimes having an email from somebody like us makes the difference and I am willing to give it a go, either that or smash her computer which would work for a while too.If you prefer me to try emailing over smashing her computer then i will need as much information as you can give me, you can PM any personal details but I do want to know everything.Victims of romance scams have been known to send their rent money, money to pay for food or money to pay for medication, they will sell assests, borrow money and some will even steal to help the love of their life.
The scammer could send fake money orders or fake checks for her to cash or deposit money from a compromised bank account and then have her forward the proceeds by Western union to find out later that she is liable for the full value of anything she cashed / received.
Her family has tried everything they can to convince her he is a scammer, but she refuses to believe them.
