I guess it’s mostly the dumbest segment of western women, rather than men, who fall for Nigerian dating scams, and they are most likely to be fat and ugly.They have totally branched out from that stupid 419 scam that everyone is so familiar with.They hatched dozens of new scams and they come up with even newer ones all the time.Many people are falling for the various dating scams, which are also run by Russian organized crime and now even Filipinas and Chinese East European women.
Also they really don’t care if 80% of the site is scammers, and they often will not even delete the scammers if you report them because these sites are in competition to see how many members they have.
Do people still fall for the Nigerian internet scam?
Or have they progressed to more sophisticated methods?
They often pretend to be divorced with kids and a huge house. They claim to be Western men who are overseas in Africa on some sort of job.
Of course the inevitable horrible problems befell this poor fellow (wink), or he falls madly in love with you, and yes he does need that plane ticket to fly back to the US so you can live happily ever after with your Dream Man.
