It is no longer easy to tell if someone is likely a scammer based solely on their photos.While photos are important, don’t put complete stock in them. Con men are more subtle than ever Someone you’re dating is not likely to ask for your bank account number, but you may end up in a conversation where your date asks what high school you went to, or where you were born, or your first pet’s name. They may talk about themselves and talk about their first dog, and ask, “Did you have a pet when you were a kid?
Banks, video gaming networks, and email providers, to name a few, have recently endured organized fraudulent activity.Unfortunately, online dating sites are also sometimes targeted.They may steal Facebook photos or photos from the many blogs and social network pages we all have.They may even be impersonating someone of the opposite gender.
Just like the Internet, fraud tactics evolve over time.There was a time when con men used cheesy photos of models from magazines.
