I am probably going to continue looking for Mr Right on dating sites.

My career doesn't bring me into contact with very many single men, so I really have to open my horizons for meeting people. However, because I found ya'll I will never be drawn in by a scammer again. Good News for me...I never intended to send any of the scammers money and I did catch on early in each case, but one was very smooth with the lovin...I am now baiting for fun and hopefully to save the naive out there. I wish I had been able to google my first scammer and thus this I will post all scammers I find! I hope it helps somebody! :smile:

I'm still looking but very leary of dating sites. A quick tally of those who contacted me showed 75% were scammers. I haven't lost money or private info due to my cautious nature when things don't add up but now I'm even more alert.

Yeah still looking here

Postby milton06 » Tue Aug 19, 2008 3:46 am

I am still looking but I have a high awareness now of what is out there. Luckily I was not scammed out of money...I caught it before it got that far. I baited to get the information that I needed to post on this site. What I find funny is that the guy who tried to scam me was on myspace. I don't meet anyone on there for relationships....just friends and it clearly states that on there. lol

Yes, Still Looking

Postby Fixitman65 » Sat Aug 23, 2008 11:44 pm

Still Looking, not very actively though, no one know what the future holds for anyone of us. I try to take everything at face value and trust in other people and what they say. I have been burned because of that trust, not by a scammer though, most of them aren't very bright. I still believe in the goodness of mankind, and will always bend over backwards when I can to try to help those who truly need help.

Single and happily looking!
I have strict rules I adhere to when it comes to internet "meeting"
1. I dont do LD relationships. 25 miles or less!
2. Phone calls...No phone? No way!
3. I dont pressure to meet them, and when I do if they misrepresented themselves, or the chemistry is not there I thank them and will be a friend but let them know I'm still looking.
I have met 6 people in the last 2 months....I have 6 new friends!
It is true there must be some great people on this forum! Maybe a private board would be in order....

Yes - Im still looking - The internet though is really scaring me - Im starting to not trust anyone - Its kind of un-nerved me and I hate what these people are getting away with.

The first time was bad enough loosing £350.00 and Ive nearly got entangled again - I woke early hours of this morning and I had this niggling feeling about the mobile number I had for this scammer - so 5.30am I gets out of bed and opens up the computer. Well yes I was right his number was from Nigeria - He has even rung me tonight and declared his undying love for me - doesnt it make u want to vomit.

I hope I do get to meet a special guy that is not a nigerian scammer.
Take care all

I am still looking. I have met some great people through all the pain and BS I went through, so in retrospect, it was all worth it to meet some of the great people on this site, other internet contacts and people I met in Ukraine. No pain no gain.

I now have am writing a woman in Russia that came through a strange route that started with all of this. It may not end up anywhere, but I can say I met a great woman through all of this.

So take the BS and make ferterlizer out of it. Grow something good out of the waste material.

Thanks for information

Postby nexrad23 » Wed Oct 29, 2008 1:08 am

I have been dating since 2004, I have been on many sites and

found them to be very good scammers and finally burn, I am

a Christian person, would like to meet somebody in person,
online dating is a scam and should be regulated, money is more
important than people success stories,, I think I will never marry
because of all the hurt, emotions that occure with the 21 century
process, dating in the world is more of gamble than findinf your
soul mate.. I fell very fed up with online dating and need to forget

I have been married for over 19 years and quite happily as well, a couple of years ago a friend was nearly scammed and as a result of websites like this one I was able to work out that it was a scam which saved my friend from the financial and emotional loss.

Since then I have done what I can to help others who have or will find themselves in the same situation as my friend did.

Somebody mentioned earlier in this thread that it is a nice feeling when you can prevent somebody from being scammed, too right it is ;)

I am not so active on this site but have been very active elsewhere but Romancescam has been a very valuable resource for me when proving to victims that there scammer is not the nice person they thought they were so well done to those involved for the work you do here :applause:
