This all started after I had met a guy who was a real engineer (he checked out).His pic was with the company he told me he worked for. (account name was"charles", Sacramento, CA) but I think to avoid other ladies becomes his victim, His linkedin profile is : https: // com/ in/ charles- kovac-86458598/, however it's possible also fake. com, full name in" Charles Kovac" Hi Marilyn I wanted to let you know you are not alone in this scam.I have been chatting on dating sites for the past two years and it is absolutely ridiculous how many scammers are on there.I've been asked all the same things too, money transfers, bank account info, Amazon and Itune cards,credit cards,pay pal accounts and was even sent a counterfeit cashiers check, which I knew was fake before I even took it to the bank and they verified that it was.After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account.The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.
If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer.This website has been deleted but I kept copies of it. I’m talking yo the same guy but he said he was a surgeon working for nato in Syria.I have provided all the information I had to police, banks etc in the hope he is caught. I told him several times that I preferred a phone call. His son is in boarding school and wife died of breast cancer.I found out too that once you help them out your name is given out to more scammers as a potential hit.Try to do as much research as possible if asked anything to do with money and especially if they proclaim their love right away, usually within a week. Please contact me I have been speaking to a man who calls himself Carl Breigner says he is from the Netherlands wife left him and he has twin daughters.If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common.We seemed to have a good rapport, had several long conversations but then I did not hear anymore from him. Saying he had a project at Malaysia in mining business (he is Geotechnical engineer), born in US, lived in UK... I am from Australia and was contacted by James Stevenson on POF.Same story, same details provided of Deagon oil products, cheques, letters etc. I am devastated as needed money for medical procedure and lent it as it was Christmas, I was ill in hospital and vulnerable and was told money would be given back in a week when the engineering job complete.Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims.
