Nigerian dating fraud
The photos are usually stolen from modeling sites with reports that 90% of them are being taken from Focus Hawaii.
If you think you are being scammed, go to this site and browse all the photos to see if the person you are communicating has a photo on this site. However they also use photos taken from profiles of other people on dating sites, so remember that the photos that scammers use are not photos of themselves - they are photos of innocent victims.
Has a dying person contacted you wanting your help to give his money to charity?
The most common comment of victims who think they have found the love of their life is "I can't believe I was so stupid!
