We strongly recommend never sending any money to anyone that you meet online, don't even send money to buy a postage stamp…not a cent…zilch, nada.
Remember when the money sending stops the scamming will too.
In many occasions the scammer may have primed the victim by previously telling you all about their fake mom, son daughter etc and the victim may have even spoken to the fake mom, son daughter etc on the phone or by email.
This is a ploy to gain greater sympathy from you when they reveal that “mom” will die in 24 hours unless you send the funds for an emergency operation.
Only when all passengers are off the plane and the scammer doesn't show up do they realize that they've been scammed.
In this scam the scammer asks you to send money for fees for college, university or other educational activities.In this scam the scammer will say that he/she wants to visit you but doesn't have enough money to pay for his/her plane ticket and travel expenses.They will then suggest that you send them the money so they can purchase a plane ticket.Some scammers will show fake copies of plane tickets, visas or other documents to make the travel plans appear to be authentic.After wiring the money the victim waits at the airport patiently with a bunch of flowers for his/her love of their life to arrive.
