Where to report online dating scams
Travel scams (sometimes you will see then being referred to as Visa and Tickets scams) are the most widely used.
The scammers (who play both the lady and the translation agency) milk all men interested in correspondence with this lady for money for translation services for as long as possible.
If the victim is cooperative, other money requests can be made as well: to pay for the ladys English lessons, to help out with rent or home repairs, to help with small medical emergencies, and so on.
It is not uncommon for the Translation Scammers to use Travel Scam tricks as well, inviting the victim to help the lady financially with the arrangements for the personal meeting.
This type of scam is designed to last many months, since the scammers try to trick the victim into paying the translation services for as long as possible.
The scammers employ English-speaking interpreters to impersonate both the lady and the translation company.
