Scammers Target

Be Sociable, Share!

Someone approached me asking for help to locate a (+44) number.  I told her that as far as I know, +44 is the country code for UK.  She seemed surprised so I asked her what’s that about.  Apparently she joined and someone called “Raymond Banks” claiming to be from the US gave her his number (+44) 7024024413 and email address:

I did a quick search for that number online and a person advertising a service in Nigeria that provides matchmaking people with a “sugar daddy” or “sugar mummy”.

If you’re someone who is using a dating site or such social networking websites to look for dates, you need to be very careful.  There seems to be a heck of a lot of scammers there.  It’s amazing that these social networking sites doesn’t seem to be doing anything about it.

I don’t really know if people who are into dating sites should consider paid ones.  Perhaps they have better security there? It’s probably just a little safer to try Facebook.  Join a singles wanting to mingle group and send people you like private messages.  That way you get to add each other and see each other’s friends.  It’s not a sure-fire way to meet legit new people online but it’s probably a little better than these dating sites.

    I wonder how many might be paying on these type of websites to get membership.

      Membership is free for as far as I know. But some other “quality” dating sites are those that you have to pay for.
