The main theme of the scam is that someone (be it a young women or a young men) contacts a potential victim on a dating site, quickly involves the potential victim into romantic online-relationship, and then asks the potential victim for financial assistance with arranging a person meeting.The scammers make money by asking for: Very often, the Travel scammers use falsified visas, passports, tickets, and other documents to create an appearance of legitimate travel arrangements Thousands of foreigners already became a victim of this scam.So, the fact that you do not see a person on a black list in no way means that this person is "real" or honest.Nothing short of verification of identity can confirm that someone is real.And even if the person is confirmed to be real, you are anything but safe from a scam.Many real people use their real information to scam people online.Step 3: if nothing helps, manually go to 5 or 6 and look through reports and photos posted there. In fact, I would estimate that over 70% of scammers ARE NOT reported online, because people who got scammed often do not know that black lists exist, or how to use them.Maybe you will find her picture posted online somewhere under a different name. Some victims have such a limited computer knowledge, that a thought of navigating a forum or anti-scam site seems intimidating to them.
