Internet dating scam artists
The seductive visions of wealth can make you overlook that you never even entered this lottery.This scam will usually come in the form of a conventional email message.They will use your emotions and willingness to help against you.They will promise you a large cut of their business or family fortune.
This scam, like most scams, is too good to be true, yet people still fall for this money transfer con game.
The emails frighten or entice you into clicking on a link that delivers you to the phony web page, where you can enter your ID and password.
A common ruse is an urgent need to "confirm your identity." The message will even offer you a story of how your account has been attacked by hackers to trick you into divulging your confidential information. Check a link's legitimacy by checking that the URL address of the link is sending you to a secure site — you'll know this because the link address will begin with https:// (note the "s" after http). If still in doubt, make a phone call to the financial institution to verify if the email is real.
In reality, the scammers are Africans from Nigeria and Ghana.
