The Photo: Many con artists who troll dating sites now use photos that are almost too good to be true, or look slightly 'off' for some reason.Men Targeting Women: Con artists targeting women will often post model-perfect photos on the profile page.But since they may already claim to live in another country, poor language isn't always a problem.Online scam artists capitalize on tugging at your heart and appearing normal in every way.Be advised, the 'son' or elderly parent doesn't exist, and neither does Mr. The con artist mentions the fake son or other relative to lay the groundwork for conning you out of money. The rest of the profile can be written quite excellently - the reason is, they have cut and pasted paragraphs from real profiles and these are used to build the 'fake' profiles.Some less polished con artists are still new at the game, and you may still see profiles in broken English and poorly written (not just bad spelling by a real person), which can be a very strong indicator of a problem.The guy looks like he could be in magazine ads; handsome, viral, posed just right - like a professional head shot for a portfolio, which it probably is, and the person in the photo likely doesn't know he's being used to con women.Naturally, there are indeed some handsome men out there looking for dates, but if you get a flirtatious message from a guy whose profile photo is beyond cute, don't rush in until you assess things a bit.
In recent years, this is no longer the case, which means potential victims are even more vulnerable than before.They can also claim they're caring for an elderly parent.
