Internet Dating Scams

March 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

82 million dollars taken by dating scammers all over the world people. That’s a lot of money some lonely hearts have sent to men and women who prey on their loneliness, their kindheartedness. So many are not aware of what is happening in today’s world. Their are monsters out there who could care less about our hearts, they are only interest in money and will groom you, woo you and gain your trust. Soon you want to give them the world and often they will bleed you dry. Some come here often as a matter of fact, I truly believe they are using me as a challenge. It’s one right after the other, I’ve had two this week with the last name “Smith” both very good looking gentleman.

One thing I’ve noticed, the pictures of these good looking men are always white males, no other nationality has shown up here. They always write in a way that you realize English is their second language and their notes are so cheesy, they make you want to vomit. These are clearly stock letters found on the internet, I tried to tap into one but came up with different ones but they pretty much sound the same. You are merley a dollar sign to these people. I personally don’t blame the teens involved in this scam, many of them are so poor and all they want is to be able to buy milk and bread to feed their family. This is often the only job they can find. It’s the owners of these internet houses who are the monsters with scripts and instructions on what to say and how to woo a person.

You will never meet these individuals, because they do not exist in the real sense. The picture is stolen so that person is a victim and he is not aware that someone is using his or her picture. Here’s my latest message from a scammer after speaking with him two or three times…

(I read the poems. It is so beautiful. My heart full of love and emotional after reading those poem. You put me at the right sleep after reading those poem. You have a love heart my dear Melvina. I think meeting you is a blessing to me because i never thought i will meet someone special like you. You are the most beautiful person I know, inside and outside and I see that more clearly with each passing day. You do something to me that no other has, you have made me so happy, the happiest I’ve ever been. You give me the most amazing feelings inside, the feeling of being in love. Do you know, every day I will be thinking about you. When my eyes are closed, when I sing and dance to a love song, when I’m checking my email, I will be thinking about you. When I go to sleep in the loneliness of my room and give in to wonderful dreams I will definitely be thinking about you. You’re the one who makes me beautiful. You’re the one who makes me strong. You’re the one who makes me feel so important; you’re everything to me. I have waited for someone like you, and now that I have found you I will never let you go. My happiness is having you as my best friend.)

This is all bullshit but to the lonely heart these words are tugging at their emotions and the grooming begins. I refuse to answer my emails but I’m sure if I did, I would find the same thing, more bullshit.
