    Default online dating as make-believe for the fools

    Today I was running searches (no porn, no dating or other 'particular' sites ) over the internet and all of a sudden I found this new window open. Again, I was not visiting any questionable site.
    http://antiscam.000space.com/odbs.htm
    Apparently there was this cutie (blond teenager ) sending me instant messages to initiate a chat.
    Of course it was just another junk 'dating' site...perhaps a front for malware of some sort, given how mysteriously the window appeared.
    Now are the other 'members' of the site as 'real' as the cutie online 24/7 waiting just for me?
    Highly unlikely.
    PFFT!

    Maybe it's time to revive the subject of scamming again and take a look at the recent developments of the ever more complicated boxes-inside-boxes maneuvers in scamming.

    These days, for a newbie to start on the risky business of webdating, is like buying some electronic gadget, necessitating a manual as big as a telephone directory. It seems to be an art or a science to webdate relatively safely.

    I would like to turn attention to the thread 'For newcomers at the anti-scamming scene', also here in 'general discussions'. Those who in detail have followed recent scamming-tactics could bring the rest of us up-to-date. E.g.does my personal insight on the subject need some brushing up on the finer details, while the basics always are the basics, and don't change much.

    They are linked to parent sites that pass on your details to third parties. Then you get spammed. Change your browser setting to no third party cookies. This helps. And clear cache and data cookies at the end of all browsing sessions.

    My investigations into online dating scams are very fresh and I've evidence to back up my knowledge. I'm happy to answer any queries anyone has. I'm able now to locate scammers on pretty much any website within seconds. One of the important lessons I've learned is never report to the actual website. They know the scammers are there. In most cases they put them there. Reporting it to the site will only result in difficulties for you. Reputable sites are the ones to stick too. Even they are not immune to scammers. Just less likely to be. I hope you all stay safe and protect your wallet and your emotions. Bigbroadandhugable.

    It is some thing very disgusting to say that dating online is as make believe for the fools..It is very nice concept of selecting our better half by understanding each other well.And this would help in getting out of any further conflicts in future..

    online love

    Whilst I would like to agree that getting to know done one before meeting can be a good way of weeding out those that do not share amything in common with you. But as with all online dating you have no idea who you are talking to or weather this persons intentions are to scam you or maybe they are real. Like it or not the scammers are real, they couldn't care less about you and they are here to stay. Rose coloured glasses only make you a prime target. Reality is sadly not so sweet.

    To actually believe that this head in the sand approach is what's really disgusting. These scams are real, and it is people that take your attitude to naively believe that which someone writes to you is honest. You have no idea who your talking to or where they're from. If they give you that info check it. There are indeed genuine members looking for love. But twice as many looking for your money. So while you naively believe it's all real you will soon find out as you are exactly the type of gullible person that these people pray on. I would suggest you open your eyes. I've been scammed and can spot a scammer on minutes. They number in the thousands. Once you've parted with your money then it's goodbye or more money.

    Angry Re: online dating as make-believe for the fools

    Hi Friends,

    I am Keiji Daisuke Takashi. I am a Japanese national working in the Phillpines. I was caught in a SKYPE WEBCAM SEXCHAT with a Filipino girl whom I know through Tagged on the 30.4.2014. She persuade me to link up on Facebook. I did so upon her invitation.

    Upon this, she ask me to do a skype webchat with her.I was very cool and I didn't talk about sex with her as I respect her so much. But she ask me, she likes to do a webcam sex chat with me. So I was without thinking much, I did it with her. After that, SHE BLACKMAIL ME AND DEMANDED MONEY FROM ME. If i don't give any money to her, she will exposed the video on youtube. I challenged her and I told her, pls do so. She did it. The video was on youtube within a minute.

    A day after, i red flag the video to youtube and the video was taken down by youtube for scamming reason. Two days after that incident, i read the online news on the internet and i came to know, there are many people get scam through this syndicates. Majority of the scammers operated from the PHILLIPINES with the assistance from international SYNDICATES. With the help of INTERPOL and the PHILLIPINES police, they are in the midst of tracking the syndicates down.

    I have the photos of the scammer which I downloaded from her facebook. I wish to upload her photo here. Hopefully, everybody will know her true and real identity.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Kind regards,

    Keiji Daisuke Takashi.
