Scammers will often pocket the money or use the bank details you have given to gain access to your online banking and pocket even more money.
Scammers may go as far as sending fake documentation to corroborate their claims such as: photocopied plane tickets, visa requirements and passport information .
These types of scams have been around as long as the Internet, and maybe longer.
The approach that members take to get to know you will always vary.
However, in all cases it is worth asking yourself, “Is this person looking for a relationship, and are they interested in the person I am”.
These stories are cleverly formulated to make the scammer rich.
Don’t trust them and report the member for inappropriate behaviour.
You could risk your details being used for identity theft or money laundering which is a criminal offence.
