Scammers dating letters validating an email address

The marriage being a prequiste of the father, uncle or grandfather's will.

The scammer keeps the victim believing that they are sincere, until they are able to build up enough rapport to ask for thousands of dollars to help bring the gold into the victim's country.

Sometimes the third party is real and sometimes they are fictitious as well.

Funds sent by Western Union and Money Gram do not have to be claimed by anyone showing identification if the sender sends money using a secret pass phrase and response and can be picked up anywhere in the world.

Often photos of unknown African actresses will be used to lure the victim into believing they are talking to that person.

Victims may be invited to travel to the scammer's country; in some cases the victims arrive with asked-for gift money for family members or bribes for corrupt officials, and then they are beaten and robbed or murdered.

The scammer will provide an excuse such as not being able to get an exit visa, or illness of themselves or a family member.

Scammers are very adept at knowing how to "play" their victims - sending love poems, sex games in emails, building up a "loving relationship" with many promises of "one day we will be married".

Upon finding victims, scammers lure them to more private means of communication, (such as providing an e-mail address) to allow for fraud to occur.

The fraud typically involves the scammer acting as if they've quickly fallen for the victim so that when they have the opportunity to ask for money, the victim at that time has become too emotionally involved, and will have deep feelings of guilt if they decline the request for money from the scammer.

Letters are exchanged between the scammer and victim until the scammer feels they have groomed the victim enough to ask for money.
