Tinder the Nigerian Dating Hot Spot - Scambaiting

by Lori
(central, Ca. USA)

First of all I will make it clear I am a scam-baiter. I enjoy the thrill of pulling these scumbags offline so they do not prey on other women. My list of Scammers is very long and distinguished and vary in the story line and execution of the Scam itself.


The Match Scammers have a very definite time frame to execute their scam. Usually between 3-4 weeks they will be crying for the money. I have found the Tinder Scammers to vary in their game I've had a handful say they love you in the first exchange online to the exact opposite slow and methodical.

I am currently gaming with 4 Tinder scammers. A portfolio Manager for Bain Capital, and I believe Alex Morgan, a Builder in Canada and an Arms Dealer.

My Match conquests include an Italian fashion designer I kept off line for 6 months. A Civil Engineer, Diamond Dealer, and a hand full of military scammers I knock off after a few conversations. All have some sort of VoIP equipment and there is the same rooster crowing in the background. A Short list of my conquests include, Salvo Antonio Giovanni, Rodrigo Mann-Recendez, Ben Clement, Steve Williams, Ryan Dyer, Steve Dyer, Tyler Barnett, Brian Simms, Thomas Care. Since I am actively engaged in a match with 4 scammers - on Tinder I will not call them out yet.

When I caught on to my first scam it became a game of wit. I troll the dating websites and target their profiles. I believe the Match Scammers have got wise to me, so I moved to Tinder for awhile. At any given time in the match I tell them I've Scam Baited the best scammers in the business but they keep on with the plot. It's quite amazing to me, one actually tried to threaten when he found out he was being played. I keep photo's, emails and save txt messages all have beautiful foreign accents. I really feel bad for those photo's that have been stolen that involve children in the pictures.

Yes the Tinderboys don't hold a candle to the Match guys, the match guys are a "little" smarter.. but not much. And I can hardly imagine someone being stuck in Istanbul, Turkey for 6 months with out money. It was hilarious the one scammer actually told me to google the time in Istanbul so I don't call when princess is sleeping. LOL.

I did have fun with him though. He was very well spoken, well written and never offered up obscene photos like most seem to like to do. I am glad I came across this because it confirms what a cesspool Tinder really is.

I never misrepresent myself, I am just as creative in the writing department where romance is concerned, in fact I think I have seen other scammers using modified letters I have written to my scammers. They definitely have shop hours. They tend to say they are working hard then when they end up overseas then the time difference comes into play where coordinating calls and txt's become strategic.

I am very proud to say none of them has got a dime from me, although I really wanted to continue one of the Matches so I did get an iTunes card to keep the match going. A small price to pay for the hours of enjoyment.

I got bored too quickly
by: An

I was onto this guy on Tinder pretty quickly. "Andrea" was using the very same MO as someone who scammed my brain- damaged sister for money and her Facebook account. It was funny how his photos morphed from a gorgeous buff Asian guy to an overweight light-skinned black guy.

Oh, he also said he was in the Navy in Oklahoma, while wearing a Marine Corps shirt. Came on strong with the "I love yous" very quickly. Just dumb. I wanted to punish him but tired of it quickly and told him off via text, said I was turning him in to the FBI. He used my 4 letter words to insult me back; it was funny because the curses were so lame compared to those we native speakers come up with.

I think there's another one texting right now. These poor people whose photos are stolen!

Austin Simmons/Jeffrey Schubert
by: Anonymous

So my friend in another country found out this guy is all over Tinder and on Watch for Scams and Found as Martins Kelvin and Harry Cole James Bill and Hays Batte.

Pics stolen from a British man named Dean Also as Gregory Giannu and Douglas Bohn. All on Tinder.

This one is also posing as Austin Simmons on Tinder.

I know I have just completed a 9 month match with Austin Simmons when I found Jeffrey Schubert on Tinder same man one a little heavier than the other. MY friend located Jeffrey Schubert on Tinder as Kelvin Martins and James Harry Cole.

I have photos on both cropped side by side. Im never too far from Tinder and monitor it pretty good for the frequent flyer scammers. Austin insists it is not the same person. I know better and poor Dean in Britain. I wish I could find him and tell him this story.

Scambaiting and already bored with it...
by: Rusty

I was contacted by a woman who claimed to be local and now she's in Kenya on a business trip.

I see all the classic signs of a scam - I'm thinking of engaging in scambaiting, but I'm not sure if I can maintain interest over a long period of time. Nor am I one for long, flowery emails and exchanging personal details with a scammer, even if I'm making them up...

It's too bad there's not an AI that could generate email to keep the scammers busy. It would have to pass the Turing test

Nigerian Scammer~
by: Anonymousbaiter

The plead/request for money is getting more forceful. You see he wants me to cash advance on my credit card and deposit to a B of A account. I said i will not do that. Even if I did he would have to pay back my account and the funds clear before I do any such thing. I let him know he has never done anything for me so whats my motivation in doing this?

He's crazy if he even thinks I will comply with his retarded request. He is getting increasingly impatient and says he will need to get firm with me if I do not comply. I just keep reminding him he does not do anything for me.

This match has been going on for at least 6 months and I would have thought he would get to the bottom line sooner. When I get nasty he seems to back off and I use the operative phrase which I cannot post.. yields his infamous 24 hour no contact.. I may need to pull that out as my trump card today to back him off some.

I swear I have broke up with him a bunch of times and he comes back for more. I love it~ I am sure there is a threshold that the scammer has to yield some sort of money from a match he is playing. I do not know how their pecking order works. I would be curious how there management structure works. hahaha ~

I got an email from a wonderful lady that reads my blog.. she sent me some photos and a story I found to be awful. I see she was able to post here as well. As many people share information and educate they are better off. Online dating is full of Players, Flakes and Scammers.

Alas parting is sweet sorrow
by: Anonymousbaiter

I have successfully baited numerous scammers from match, Tinder and POF, our time. I've had the who's who of the A list scammers. These are the matches that literally extend for months at a time. I'm currently involved in a very extensive match it went on for 6 months and I finally got the bottom line request for money.

He asked for $11,000.00 because his business in Nigeria is not going well. I've received a marriage proposal, promise of life love and happiness... LoL. And yes he thinks he is my dominant.. omg---seriously!!!

As this match draws to a conclusion, I do have another that is remotely amusing me..if it gets boring he will be dumped. I only like to play with the scammers that bring there A game to me. I do not believe there is real love so I enjoy the Romance of a relationship with the scammers as they are polite, well spoken and know how to appeal to my creativity and creative writing skills.

Some probably find it odd I don't. It's a hobby for me... LoL. My Canadian businessman in Nigeria alas must come to an end of a beautiful 6 month experience. And on to focusing my attention to the businessman in Ghana we've been talking for a month now.

Yes I play multiple matches a time.

Wow
by: Sharon Henson

Lori, I wish I had that kind of guts. I got my heart broken the very first guy I talked to. I don't intend on doing that again but good for you. If you can get some of those men offline so they don't hurt any more women, more power to you. You have lists of names and photos, ever get anyone from POF?

I was recently a victim of a man I met on POF, says his name is Steve Vig. I posted my story on here with pictures. I was wondering if you could take a look at them and let me know if you have seen those pictures used by another scammer under another name? Steve Vig - Oil Rig Engineer.

Have fun with your scambaiting.

Thank you.

Sharon

I've baited at least a dozen on Tinder. They are pretty unintelligent. Reposting same profile photo with a different name. Robert Onile, Robert Come Monaco in tinder under George..lol- Anthony Bayley, Dave Hughes, Alex Freyman, Stefan Manos and Austin Simmons.

It's the short list all money grubbing scammers..

Charles Briggs
by: Anonymous

He tried and tried and first he said he was from a Texas business consultant and was leaving to work as a contractor in Germany. He had me switch conversations from Tinder to Viper and IMO. He wasn't very smart and asked me to send a gift card to his aunt for his nephews bday.

I stated you have a computer so you email a certificate. Than he wanted to get an apt where I lived but needed a way to get the money to the broker and wanted me to give my bank info which I said your American you have a bank account so you can use your own.

I knew it was a scam after the first couple of conversations because of the broken English in the text but I continued to play along to see how far he would go.

Beware of Charles Briggs who lost his wife and unborn child in an accident he can't speak about.

Very nice looking black man from photos.
