nigeria online dating romance scams-62

Meeting people on a Christian site is believed to be safe.

Internet services and websites make it easy for us to pay bills, shop, make online reservations and even work. Criminal minds can reach these days further than before, into our private lives, our homes and work offices. Attack methods and tools vary from traditional attack vectors, which use malicious software and vulnerabilities present in almost all the programs and apps (even in the popular Windows operating systems), to ingenious phishing scams deployed from unexpected regions of the world, where justice can’t easily reach out to catch the eventual perpetrators.

Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.

They play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts or personal details.

In the end, you are left broke and without any of the promised money.
