Trolololololo the romance scammer (long read)

Jun 21, 2013 by tinabeena
Taken from Wikipedia: A romance scam is a confidence trick involving feigned romantic intentions towards a victim, gaining their affection, and then using that goodwill to commit fraud. Fraudulent acts may involve access to the victims' money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, e-mail accounts, and/or national identification numbers or by getting the victims to commit financial fraud on their behalf.

My friend Susan was a victim to this kind of scam. The scammer promised her the world, she sent him money for "a new phone" and a new laptop, etc. only to find out he was a Nigerian scam artist.

For some reason, these scammers tend to pick out the vulnerable people...people who are lonely, overweight, depressed....etc.

When these scammers try something with me, I troll them. So, about 15 minutes ago, some random dude who definitely is a romance scammer, messaged me on skype.
