Scammer on dating sites Fantasy sex chat bots
In the mid 80's, they were called "Yahoo Boys" as opposed to "scammers".
Today, scammers have a much better way to reach more people on a more personal level through social networking and dating web sites.
The REAL police can't do anything to scammers, so that just leaves you to take the blame.
About 30 years ago, the only way scammers could operate was through mass emails.
One of the first things a scammer will do is to try and get you away from the site to chat with them on instant messenger.
Scammers try to work very fast in most cases and IM is much faster than conversating through emails and web site messages.
They are innocent people that most likely don't know they are being used by scammers.Scammers will tell you they have fallen in love with you within the first few messages or chats.
