Online dating messenger
I'm not saying that I want to sit glued to chat for hours on end...
but 10 minutes on chat with interactive conversation can accomplish more than weeks of emailing back and forth.
Also as for scammers using incorrect grammar, YES big red flag.
I always take the time to find out where the person is from before jumping to the conclusion that they're a scammer.
If he just continued talking to me we would have already begun to get to know each other and in my imagination met in person ASAP.I figured out my own little diabolical means of dealing with nigerian-esque scammers. So yahoo just takes up space, takes forever to load up at the start and is generally a nuisance on the taskbar... Ironically, people here say that the pay sites are for the more "serious" men, but personally, I have been contacted by more scammers and fakes from those sites than on Po F.When I start receiving emails with pictures of russian models, I start sending pictures of the african actors in the movie "the gods must be crazy", and claiming it is me. If the guy to whom you are chatting/emailing fits more than a few of the following, he may be a scammer:- His photo is attractive (and also not his, of course)- He's either divorced or widowed, and depending on the age group he's targeting, usually with 1 child around 12-13.- He's originally from a country outside the US - they usually pick France, Ireland or Germany.- He describes himself as self-employed or an entrepreneur, or says he has a good job, making from K on up.- He wants to send you a lot of photos of his house, cars, etc.He responded very positively telling me how much he was interested in getting to know me and then bam he insists I take the time to download yahoo messenger so we can get to know each other better.
The problem is I already indicated that I don’t use any type of messenger and prefer to get to know people through POF e-mail as we are doing right now and/or to meet in person.I got red flags when he said "I will like you to take the time to download yahoo messenger." And his profile did not seem the type to make that error. I figured out my own little diabolical means of dealing with nigerian-esque scammers.
