Today was in the german TV station RTL by "Stern-TV" a report about Romancescammer. Shown was two cases which was a "Military-Scam", the other case was a "Soldier Fund Scam".
Nothing new for us. Typical Scenario when Soldier is in Iraq or when they've "found" Millions somewhere in the desert. Vics shall send money and so one woman lost 50.000€ The other woman lost "only" 6000€ coz she smelt a rat as the Mail from the Police came, to send 7000€ so that her "Lover" would be released from jail.
Then came a small information that this Scams comes mostly from the Ghana or Negeria Mafia.
Contacts are done mostly over FB or Single pages like Lovoo etc.
One woman was also in the Studio coz she wrote a Book about her case. In the Interview she talked about her Onlinechecks and so she mentioned also RS and our Threads and our readnotify. Then they've shown how GIS works.
Here is the Link with the report but unfortunately in german
