Pictures nigerian dating scammers
From what I haven been told by several users, the fake profiles are probably made only for one purpose: to cheat naive men into sending money to the person hiding behind a false name and picture.
The excuses used are money for an airline ticket, hospital treatments, school fees or similar.
Only a few dating sites write in clear text that it is illegal to post other peoples pictures and to violate copyright laws.
Very few dating sites warns their own paying users against the risc of scams.
In my opinion the dating sites should take the problem and their responsibility more serious.
Many users are not aware that the person writing love letters to them through dating sites is not always what he/she appears to be.
You will also need to have staff going through the profiles to check them out, compare photos cross-posted and banning IP-numbers.
Site owners ARE responsible for all material posted and hosted on their site. Luckily some sites actually are taken these precautions.
The love-seeking men will never see their money again and surely never see the person they thought to be mailing with.
The profiles are hiding behind fake pictures and who knows... There is some patterns to see in the way the false profiles are used and it gives the impression that these are pretty well-organised frauds.
