Profiles include descriptions designed to attract the targeted audience.he text of the ad is often poorly written but not so much that an uninformed victim wouldn’t think it was more than an individual who doesn’t have good writing skills or some sort of dyslexia or other learning disability.
However, more and more photographs of prior victims (or ordinary people like you and me) are being used.
Most scammers are men and will pose as either gender in order to con their victim.
here might be an exchange of one or two emails to the victim’s email address but it is more likely that the scammer will continue writing the victim back and forth on the dating service until he can successfully convince the victim to install IM so they can chat.
But if people follow them up they'll just be subject to scams and frauds, or being sent viruses.
Dating and romance scams are a little less obvious than many other online frauds, since they won't usually ask the person receiving them to click on a link or send something over.
