How are these scammers so elaborate? I have all these fake members on a dating site I own and when they want to unsubscribe, they get someone to call me that speaks perfect English and matches the profile to call me. They are clearly not from Africa. The phone number even matches their profile location. You would think AFTER they got the account, used it, etc. it would be a done deal and they wouldn't waste time on this, but no. They put all this effort in just to unsubscribe.

So how do they run this elaborate scheme? Do they have a call center or do these guys just have a bunch of people living in the US that they use to call me for these things?

Also, if it is such an easy task for them to call me etc, why do the profiles look like such junk? All the fields are filled in with such barely coherent writing, obviously by a scammer in Nigeria, etc. who can't speak a lick of English.

Is your site a "free-trial period" site, where they can post, leave it up for awhile to snag a few possible victims, then unsubscribe before they have to pay? Lads like anything that is free, and if they can get a victim or two before the profile is taken down durring the free period, I can see them doing that. Not sure if they use "call centers." Probably more like lad cafes, a small group, I suspect. I'm not sure if I'm on track in answering your question or not. Maybe this question needs to be asked of the people who work in the Love Scam Forum.
