Unlike a gold digger, who marries for money, a pro-dater is not necessarily single or available in real life.Another variation is that the scammer insists they need to marry in order to inherit millions of dollars of gold left by a father, uncle, or grandfather.
Also because military public relations often posts information on soldiers without mentioning their families or personal lives, images are stolen from these websites by organized internet crime gangs often operating out of Nigeria or Ghana.
Per their results, sensitive and less emotionally intelligent people are more likely to be vulnerable to online dating scams.
This was the finding of a study by Dr Martin Graff of the University of South Wales presented on Tuesday 26 April 2016, at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference in Nottingham, England.
The merchandise is returned to the vendors, the pro-dater and the various accomplices take in their respective cut of the take.
As the pro-dater is eager to date again, the next date is immediately set up with the next wealthy foreigner.
