Scammers are tricking their blind dates with their psychological knowledge of them. You might be ignoring scam awareness news because you think you’re smart and wise, but believe me you’ll be needing this expo.

Blind dating is a dangerous game, and a great opportunity for scammers to impersonate people and dwindle their dates with incredibly heart melting stories.

In my previous post, I talked about the consignment stories, where the scammer tells you about a briefcase which you just have to receive, and the next thing you find yourself paying more money than you ever imagined till you realize you’ve been scammed; this one is a heart melting line, where the scammers who usually claims to be widowed or separated, and have kids usually a young son studying somewhere, gets you chatting with him via another email or social media contact, or making someone act the role of the kid to establish a strong relationship with you, thus a strong bond between you and the invisible child.

The end story is always money. When they feel you’ve grown a feeling for their invisible child, they don’t hesitate, they eventually bring out a heart touching excuse for you to pay for one thing or the other, exhausted school provisions and foodstuff, framed accident stories where you might be provided with pictures to show as evidence, doctor’s contact email address, etc…. Don’t fall for that, it’s all F.A.K.E, it’s just a sham, the stories are arranged long before they came across you on any social media.

Here’s a sample of a chat of feigned child of a scammer impersonating an Army General, introducing themselves to the victim, taking enough time to talk with the victim, and at last, asking for money for support to sponsor a birthday party.

How do you see these pics? Foul? Real? As for me, these look so real, in fact they just might be real, but they’re used by fake people, these are concrete evidence employed to furnish the story and make it look just the way the pictures are.

Now as we all see, scammers go any length to get what they want, be careful, be wiser than you’re kind, or you may just be exploited for your simplicity.
