I remember reading somewhere that Romance scams were up by 70% in the last year, seems they're more successful. Part of the reason I romance bait almost exclusively now days

Hi internationalchrysis, Smile

You nearly got it right. Laughing

Its from my; Scummer gets 19 years, thread. To save you looking it up,

Quoted from "Police Claw Back Nigerian Scam Funds

Romance scams up "1000 per cent"

As well as standard Nigerian play, Hay said the police were continuing to see an evolution of different types of internet scams and frauds. One of the types was romance scams, which he saw as "a major problem".

"We've had a 1000 per cent increase in romance scams in the last three years," he said.

"When we first looked at some of our studies and the money going to Nigeria, we identified three years ago [that] 7 per cent [was] in relation to romance scams, yet three years down the track we see that's increased 1000 per cent and now forms 70 per cent.


Cheers Smile
