I "met"a man on a legit site.. I am usually very cautious, he said he was cautious too. There were a few red flags,my friends told me I was being paranoid. I knew if we communicated long enough that more red flags would appear. They did, and suddenly when planning to mert me,he had this great job opportunity overseas. And of course after many I miss yous etc. He asked for the money. He posed as an engineer, even sent me pucs of the check and contract he was awarded. When the red flag appeared I had started doing my research. Don't waist a lot of money on search sites, because if these scammers are good, you won't find anything. Example : reverse e-mail search, are going to come up blank. They have created this account just for you, and they have so many filters and security that there is nothing in cyber land to associate it with. Reverse phone number is another one. With pay as you go, and things like Magic Jack, it is hard to pin point where the phone originates. Addresses are just made up, if he is lucky someone actually by his assumed name owns property and he can use that. In my case he found someone with the first initial and last name associated with an address. I searched property tax records and found thst the first initial was actually a female and not male. Searching further the female was not in the age range one would associate with the guy, race was presumed different based on the names if known associates. I never sent this guy money. He never knew anything but my phone number,and e-mail address. I felt safe until my bank called and told me there was suspicious activity on my account. Luckily they declined all transactions and I took all my money out and established a different account. How he managed that I don't know, but Imassume he used the same type of searches I did. I didn't feel stupid as much as pissed. Usually according to the experts these people just move in. The creepy thing about him, is that he admits to what he tried, and at random will try to contact me,even though he knows thst I know he is a scammer. I turned everything I knew about him to the Feds and various dating sites.
