The period from first contact to first cash request could be a few days or a few months but regardless how long you've "known" the person, a request for money is a scam.
Scammers operate from countries with low per capita income and even if a scam takes months to pay out it is worthwhile for them, even for just a few hundred dollars.
I’ve talked to lots of women over 60 and almost always the biggest fear they share with me is the thought of being alone forever.
She might just need money to pay her bills but will probably want desperately to come and visit him in his Western nation.
But, when it comes to writing a dating profile after 60, we often find ourselves lost for words.
We may not even be able to describe the kind of man that we are looking for.
Today more than ever, women over the age of 50 are finding opportunities for love and friendship in the unlikeliest of places.
They are meeting in competitive sporting events, senior living communities, book clubs, cruises and traveling groups.
With many people catching on to this scam, the scammers have “improvised” their story a little.
