Falling for internet love scams.

Posted on August 5, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

It is only words but many women are taking in by those sweet promises of love and marriages and throw caution to the wind.

There is no free lunch in this world. If something looks too good to be true, most probably it is a scam or con job.

The bait is very enticing and most swallow it hook ,line and sinker. They are caught and only realized it when they have parted a substantial amount of money and received nothing in return .

Never part with your hard earned money no matter what. Don’t be a fool.Do not listen to all those sob stories or get rich quick stories because they only want to steal your money.Do not be too trusting .

This woman fell in love with a British man over the internet and was cheated of Rm20K.

The man told her that he is sending an engagement ring, a gold wrist watch, a gold necklace for her and her mother, a camera handphone and some clothes, £10,000 (RM59,207), a laptop and a rose.All she needed to do was pay the courier service fee of RM16,379.29.

If he can afford to send all those gifts, won’t you be suspicious if he asked you to pay the courier fees?

Would it not raise your suspicions that it could be a scam ? It is like informing you have struck the first prize lottery for XXXX millions and you need to pay the tax to claim it.

There are even internet programs that are used to lure those lonely women to get their personal details and then steal their bank or credit card passwords.

Some of those women not only lose their money but also conned of their sex.

In the internet age, it is better to be safe than sorry. Be wise and hold tightly to your money. Only fools will part with their money.
