(Denver, co USA!)
Education for the masses on how to identify Nigerian scammers or West African scammers. I do have a few tips to offer.
First of all, the majority of the scammers always say am, not I am. The great majority of these scammers always use the word dear. I'm talking about the female side of the scammers in dating sites.
Mingle2 is a perfect example of a scammer dating site. Look at the ladies between the ages of 25 and 35 in Denver and you will find nearly all of them are scammers. This is just one dating site and there are hundreds and hundreds just like this.
They always have a problem with their phone camera and they will always seem to ask for iTune cards.
Watch out for these patterns when you're doing with dating sites. Their English will always be poor unlike an American lady. Americans talk like Americans so pay attention. Nigerian scammers freak out when you tell them why you can't send money.
When you mentioned dating site safety they try to fight and argue with you that is a red flag. Pay attention people as these scammers are on nearly every dating site. Instagram Facebook and hangouts is their main tool for using and luring victims. Viber is another tool that they use to lure people in. If your on Instagram and they ask you to switch to Hangouts immediately block them!
Be safe everyone!
