  • Normally scammers don’t meet you – they say they want to meet you then right before you are supposed to meet they claim they got into an accident or some other emergency and need to borrow money from you for some reason. That’s how the scams work

  • They will have a sob story either divorced from a viscious spouse who took their child away or wife and children, killed in a car accident, orphaned etc..

  • They will tell you they are contractors, engineers etc. for big companies who travel around the world and are currently working on a job site in Nigeria etc. that way they can easily have you send the money western union and will always have you send it in a “friends” name, which is really their own.
