Tips on dating nigerian men
Some scammers claim to be North American, European or Australian citizens working in an African nation such as Ghana, Nigeria or based in Lagos.
The story goes that they are paid in money orders but are having trouble cashing them; could you please cash the orders and wire the money to Nigeria?
It's a scam, don't send a cent, cease contact and report the scammer.
"William" is probably not even based in a Western country and is yet another Nigerian scammer trying to dupe innocent people off their money.
Scammers often use female profiles as well to fool their potential victim.
This is an extreme case of online dating scamming but should serve as a wake up call to all online daters; do you really know who is on the other end of that email or phone?
Of course millions of people have flown across countries and continents to find the loves of their life but it's important to keep personal safety in mind.
If the victim agrees they will receive money orders that have been bought for a small fee, such as $20, and doctored to read hundreds or thousands of dollars.
