Here is what I have experienced (luckily, I was smart enough not to fall for it): A guy starts communicating with a “woman” (the pictures are attractive).

Recently there are also Nigerian scams originating from Malaysia, China, India, Turkey, Spain, Cyprus, Egypt, as that's where Nigerians are located since they can easily get to these countries without visas or on the student visas.Men are usually widowed engineers, building contractors, military, vet doctors, surgeons or antique dealers.Women are usually nurses, models, charity or UNICEF workers or antique dealers.The pick-up line "I am not interested in games or drama" cracks the top 20, which sounds legitimate enough, but so does "having past events shape your life is one thing carrying the past as a burden that sits heavily upon your shoulders is not the way i view life."There are millions of scam online dating accounts created each month, says Scamalytics co-founder Dan Winchester.His company, which he founded in 2011, detects up to 250,000 per month, and was born out of a healthy combination of necessity and self-interest. The increase in online dating scammers, he says, has grown in step with the popularity of the sites and apps themselves.“As with all dating services, there came a point that it hit the radar of the scammers, and it suddenly became overrun.This suggestion comes from Adam: I just wanted to notify you of a type of scam that is going on with some of the dating sites.
