| Internet Dating scam - 50year old male engineer who travels frequently for his job; says he is looking to meet women between the ages of 50-55 who are OK with him traveling for 1-2 months on his job; he's very charming when you speak to him, has a slight accent & heats up the romance quickly by text or phone indicating you are so beautiful in your pictures; he requests more pictures, probably with less and less clothing; he shares equally his pictures, clothed or unclothed by text or through his website; calls or texts at all hours of the day or night, indicating he may be traveling for his job out of your immediate area; quickly advances to loving you, calling you darling, dear, baby, other endearing words. Once this communication has been going on for about 3-4 weeks or longer, all with no face to face meeting as he's traveling, the need may arise to "help" him out with some bind that he's in. The request could be for I-tunes gift cards of $500 each as he has to buy a $999 Apple website app. called MobiGage for his engineering business because his laptop has either been stolen or compromised. He needs this app to run his business since he's trying to acquire a contract and he's overseas. He really plays on your heartstrings as you've already been communicating with him for a few weeks. If you help him out with this request, he'll probably have a new business partner who needs the same business app. as well a day or so later. This situation may occur on a weekend when banks are closed so he can't reimburse you by Western Union for your financial outlay until days later, or really never. After this situation, he'll come up with another financial need for his business until you can just say no. Then foreign telephone numbers start contacting you to request cash because his email has been supposedly hacked and all the pictures you shared privately may now be released & posted on Facebook. The entire communication process is all a scam to acquire anything from you, but especially cash in the end. After all this, expect your email address and contact info. to be sold to another scamming person in Hungary or another foreign country if you have not already closed your account.|
