Nigerian dating scam aka romance scam dating site with members email address
(Some are getting smarter now and not even telling you it is Nigeria).
They seem well educated, funny, caring, and pay you so much attention!
Several dating sites (including many aimed directly at the African/black community) has a high percentage of FAKE profiles posted.
The way these con artists operate is under the guise of wanting a mature long term relationship, that they are just "looking for love".
They call them “maghas” (slang for gullible white people).
These scammers spend hours extracting thousands of American e-mail addresses, sending off fraudulent letters, and then wait for hundreds of replies each day.
They start off with some sob story about either being a widower, or their wife left them for another man. They say all the right things, but you should be realistic and see that they are saying them ALL TOO SOON., the longest is usually 4-5 weeks and then they start asking for money.
They claim to be businessmen traveling to Nigeria for work related issues, or simply say they work in Nigeria.
