speed dating in hampton va - Dating scam signs

The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.

In the first few letters the scammer will say what a good woman she is and how hard life is in Russia.

They'll probably even throw in one or two pics that really up the sexy factor in order to grab your attention and make you more likely to swipe right.

Once they've delivered their payload, that's probably the last you'll hear from them, they won't likely respond to anymore questions. Since they are bots, so you probably won't have any Facebook friends in common with them.

They may have some generic interests in common with you, but probably not. All those previous flirty messages have been intended to set you up for the con.

Unless the bots are using a sophisticated chatterbot-based conversation engine, they will likely only have a few canned responses that they will give in response to your interactions.

Once they've dispensed with a few flirty small talk remarks such as "I've had a really busy week, my feet hurt, I need a massage" then they will deliver their payload, which usually asks you to visit a link that will either require you to download something (malware) or give them your credit card information.

After you get this message, it is unlikely you'll receive any further communications from them other than repeated requests to perform the same action that they wanted you to do in the payload message.

The scammers know that the odds are probably better for obtaining a match that results in conversation if they use photos of attractive people, because if you don't swipe right then they won't get to talk to you and subsequently scam you.

The online dating world has been lit ablaze by the app known as Tinder.

Tinder is a location-aware mobile dating app that leverages your Facebook profile, likes, friend information, and photos and attempts to match you with other singles that have common interests, friends, or that live near you and meet your search criteria.

Just make sure you recognize the warning signs above and don't fall head over heals for a bot.
