With all the technical sophistication and excellent knowledge of psychology, scammers on dating sites always act on the same patterns. So with proper attention, if your head is in the right place, it will not be difficult to distinguish between marriage scam artists and people who genuinely want to meet a partner in real life. Let’s focus on just that – what should you do to identify an online dating scammer?

How women are being scammed online

Criminals act according to a simple, effective scheme taken from the art of sales: the larger the customer market, the higher the chances of finding a client, which, in the case of online dating, means that these online dating scammers have a very large amount of “clients” to work with. Therefore, online dating scam artists simultaneously communicate with dozens of potential brides, sending them the same messages.

How fraudsters behave during the first stage of their scheme

Criminals use photos of other people and come up with random names, professions, occupations. Checking through a search engine for your new online friends is a mandatory procedure if you are really interested in the online dating market. However, if a swindler still managed to find a photo that was not previously uploaded to the Web, then you should pay attention to the style of communication: basic copy-paste compliments, lengthy answers to personal questions with no specifics but only common phrases, and just useless info that doesn’t make much sense. Thus, on the other end, there is a marriage swindler who, at this very moment, is actively communicating on a dating website, sending message templates to the maximum number of naive users that don’t know better. Add the scoundrel's profile to the blacklist and move on without even doubting the correctness of this decision. Your empathy will be your wrongdoing here; don’t fall flat on your face because you felt bad for a person and just wanted to give them a chance for no reason. That’s literally it; there is no reason to do it.

What fraudsters do to lure out money

Deception of a victim is carried out by methods of blackmail or an insidious fraudulent trap. If a victim turned out to be so frivolous that, believing in the seriousness of their interlocutor’s intentions, they shared some intimate photos or videos, then there will be no happy ending to such a story. A person you thought of as being a very romantic individual that seemed to like you and who wanted to communicate with you will flip their disguise and reveal their identity. They will blackmail you, and it will cost you a fortune to get them off your chest. And what if there is a chance that they will come back to suck out even more of your own money? Contact the police; don’t waste a single penny on these fraudsters. If you want to find out more about online dating blackmailers, then be sure to check out

The second most common scamming scheme is a bit different. Fraudsters, in this case, are smarter and more diverse in their methods. Types of fraudulent schemes are many – there are a lot of original ideas and innovative thinking behind all of the most widespread dating scam techniques. There are a huge number of scams aimed at luring out relatively small amounts of money from the wallets of gullible men and women. A fraudster collects money from thousands of victims, so they are not exactly greedy – they will probably be fine with an amount of money larger than 10 dollars. Here you need to remember the basic rule of conduct: never send money, bank account information, and ID data to people you’ve met on a dating site.

Probably, there were some happy exceptions in the history of online dating, but it is quite unlikely (or rather improbable or virtually impossible) in your case. If the future spouse asks to pay for their flight, deliver a gift, help them out of trouble, send them some cash for any reason, or bail them out of prison right on the eve of your eventual meeting you’ve been waiting for, take off your rose-colored glasses and face the truth – they want to rob you of your money. You are being scammed.
