Engineer dating scams
I have not been scammed yet, but things are looking bad. Recently, I have been contacted by all these supposedly Exxon engineers on oil rigs.
They would like to get to know me and would praise my beauty. Then asked if I were married with children. Then they would like to chat and asked me to download this software on my phone. I would play dumb and told them I don't know how to do it.
They would give me this sob story about a widow and a single dad. When I asked them about their knowledge (Profile said Netherland so I asked about Amsterdam, or profile said UK, I would ask about London because I have been there, he would say he is from Scotland or somewhere else instead).
I have a website where I sell a tumor remover for pets called Tumorid® so I sent them there to find out more info about me so I don't have to type it into LinkedIn.
What I found out from their IP address was Lagos, Nigeria.
Haha, Got you!
I ignored them after that. I don't even want to waste their time after that!
