Fake pictures on dating sites
The idea is to have these people eventually pay if they want to see more of them.
In reality, the scammers are Africans from Nigeria and Ghana.
Don’t be surprised if the person either doesn’t respond or keeps leading you on until you decide to sign up and utilize their instant chat service by becoming a member.
Dating sites are big business and the market is so saturated that the competition to keep up is stiff.
A lot of people have fallen for this hook, line and sinker.
They establish a connection with what they think is a real person and so they trust them enough to go the extra mile in order to maintain communication.
